How the fuck do I get this fucking armor set; all I know is that it's cosmetic set.
Autism alert, open at your own risk:
In mhx I like to pretend that I'm a foreigner trying to earn a living in these strange lands because I cant understand what the npcs are saying. At first I was dissapointed that the fan translation didn't have translated npcs but it almost enhances the experiance.
It now feels like I'm in a truly unique world with strange characters. At times it is surreal and at other times almost frightening.
I like to think that I'm just taking contracts without realizing there is a bigger threat at hand which I'm sure there is. These games always have you saving the world/village but now my character has no clue what's going. It's great!
About to break into g rank and I'm curious about my armor. Can I make it to Seregios in full Rathalos S with assorted sns? I have the gore s set too but the defense is lower, and I can gem out the fire vuln.
I'm not actually roleplaying it because that would be super gay but I kind of feel the same way playing MHO. I know Estrellian is significant and I've fought two and even killed one, but beyond that I have no fucking clue what's going on and I'm just going from one quest to the next earning enough money and mats to improve my hunting horn.
>you can make it throughout the whole game with no armor
"oh yea, I just got through a lvl 140 dual apex rajang with no armor on, it wasn't too hard."
"I tried that and they one shotted me within a minute"
"GIT GUD FAGGOT. GAWD WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SHITTERS WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE FUCKING GAME. IT'S SIMPLE FAGGOT, JUST DON'T GET HIT. GIT GUD."
I'm OK with this
But the rainbow pigment was way too soon. It lost it's meaning as a badge of honor.
The final village quests which is unlocked by doing every single quest + cat quests. Enjoy your Item Gatherer X while at it.

I had to pick up the stupid weapon to carry shitters through GQs because I was sick of failing due to randoms carting on drawn out hunts, I hate the whole playstyle. Literally no better then camping snipers in FPS's.
>kinky friend visiting from out of town
>staying at my place for sex drugs and vidya romp

>dalamadur weapons are the coolest looking thing I've ever seen

Oh we fug.
I would prefer her actually hunting with me.
No you see, the point is I've created a self-sustaining honey and bug farming unit, and it's all thanks to Ichinose putting all this cutesy bullshit everywhere. I'm convinced this is happening all according to his plan. Nyanta mode is casual girlfriend mode.
>Fight anywhere on ledges and slope
>Slight difference in elevation causes my charged attack to miss and get me killed
Remember when MH used to be about sniping weakspots and not hack and slash garbage?
Tri was the downfall of the series with autistic monster AI, 4U was the final nail to the coffin
"Doj is the worst thing to have happened to /mhg/!"
Well lads, what you're currently experiencing is /lolg/ tier casual thread quality. Enjoy!
>Slight difference in elevation causes my charged attack to miss and get me killed
What kind of gymnastics are you pulling for this to happen?
You think bitching and moaning in here, of all places, will do anything about that? Nobody actually cares, dude. Everybody's too busy actually playing the game to cherrypick bullshit to be upset about. You're shitting up the general worse than, Doj and the Dojfags were in previous threads.
I like that monsters have a D-Pad under their feet though.
Anybody know what the timing is for placing a trap so that it will activate optimally when a monster's paralysis wears off?
How about the timing for throwing a flashbang to hit a winged monster that just escaped a pit trap?
How does inflicting paralysis on a pitted monster affect the timer before it escapes? If a pit lasts 10 seconds and you para for 10 seconds after it's been in the pit 5 seconds, would it escape the pit at the end of the para (15 seconds total) or would it be stuck another 5 seconds after the para ends? (20 seconds total)
getting on mh4u now. If you want to play but aren't sure if anyone's online, one person's about to be.
A is way better, but B has a better head movement.
Also how does the hunter "equip" hunter arts
are they stored in the box since you change it there
how does he know when they're read to use, what is the bar
I'm at an awkward point where I don't want to do any of the large elder dragons/raging brach raid style fights because I have 0 idea what I'm doing and I always look bad in front of people.

Someone help me. I know about how the IG works, but fuck me, Gore is not letting me be aggressive enough to not get fucked in the ass. I can handle non-frenzy no sweat, but god damn, I never have enough time to get out of that stupid fucking explosion. If I try to sheathe and run/dive, it's too late. If I try to roll out, I get caught on his legs, and get hit period. Fuck.
thats not even the point you double nigger
>tears my ass in twain
>explosion bananza (that's bonanza by the way, dumb frogposter)
you typed out this greentext like a redditor desperate trying to get his upvotes on /r/4chan (aka the average dumb frogposter). why would i help someone like that?
Silly nicknames for monsters has been a staple since Monster Hunter Generals were a thing on /v/ before /vg/ existed, and before Tri even hit in Japan.
The eyes when a monster egg finally hatches.
Reddit was made long after Freedom Unite hit the states. Fuck off.
I like having AuL and Negate Stun. I'm not a PRO HUNTER, and learning openings with IG on my express own against a frenzied Gore that keeps jumping from place to place then setting off explosions normally would be really nice if I could manage to stick behind him. But somehow, the asshole always manages to keep me in front of the face.
Is it wrong to ask for some advice on this? I remember I used to suck dick at Tigrex until someone noted the sweet spot between his wings and tail letting you get a good opening on his face. Surely there's something like that for frenzied Gore that isn't "lel just mount".
It's not wrong to ask for advice, but next time leave out the cringe worthy greentext shit.
Anyways, for Gore stick to his crotch and you're generally pretty safe. Build up some mount damage before he goes frenzy and when he does quickly mount him and wail on his head to break the frenzy. He's really pretty easy once you learn his tells because they're all rather obvious.
>chink with a close jewish heritage
He could become the greediest man to ever exist in this world with such mixed heritage between the greediest race in known history. But he instead chose to become a shitposter.
Problem is I'm trying to learn to handle Frenzy Gore because I have to face Shagaru, and Shagaru last I checked is basically Gore in permanent Frenzy but with a few tricks thrown in the works. If I have to rely on getting Gore out of Frenzy, wouldn't that make Shagaru a lot worse?
Also, when's the best opening to try and go for the red and white juices?
Shaggy is the same thing, his crotch is a fairly safe area to be in. You'll still have to learn to read his moves but you'll always be in a good position to get out of the way easily. You can go for juices any time since launching the bug doesn't slow you down. If you're still somehow getting punished for it then try marking him and spamming R+X and hope the bug grabs the juice you need.
Ok, thanks, but there has to be one clear opening that best works. Is it after a bombing? Is it after he charges? Or do I actually have to rely on mounting to get anywhere with IG?
You don't really need openings to grab juices, just good aim. Idk how long you've been using the bugstick but eventually it's second nature and you can grab juices on the fly easily. How many times have you fought him? sounds to me like you're just frustrated and need to face him a few more times and get a handle on his patterns. Play it safe and don't go for big combos but just get a poke or two in and then roll away and repeat. It will be slow but you'll start to catch on.
Alright, thanks for being patient, anon. I'm really enjoying the gameplay of fully juiced IG, and I didn't want to default to cheesing with a weapon I'm more comfortable with.
>"dont kill the monster" says a person before the hunt
>he shoots the monster while being mounted
>he has je suis monte auto when mounting
>he kills the monster after flinching
what the fuck
late post: my gore/shagaru rule of thumb is Always Roll Forward. if you have attacks with great forward mobility (SNS/CB jumpslash, etc.) use those instead.
worst case is that you're too far away from him and collide with his chest in the roll (or worse, get pushes out from under his chest when he puffs up for it) when he's charging a triple explosion and eat it, but gore's main source of annoyance is it's quick backsteps-into-whatever (charge explosion, forward bite, wingarm slam, etc.).
Don't bother mounting solo unless it's to help you destroy a part. In multi generally you want to mount once since the first one comes so fast (except fatalis where spamming mounts is good), but not more than that. Focus on learning how to attack monsters as much as you can without jumps and mounts.
Learn what combos are best for what openings. Learn to utilize the stab for very small ones. Watch some TAs and see what the good players do if you need some starting points.
The highest dps opener for a big gap is A X X, and A X is generally the best combo for medium openings if you have time for it. For example, that's what you should be trying to get in whenever Rajang trips, but you need to know when you can't quite get it in, especially when his hands are red, in which case a slightly faster combo is X X. For small but not tiny openings the X twirl is generally your best option.
You'll want to learn how to best utilize back A too, but its proper use is very limited for most monsters, so it's quite low priority. The only monster it's extremely good for is Teo, but he needs to be pretty big so it's usually only in 136+.
Thank you very much, I appreciathe the effort.
Just another thing: is the effect extender the only way of upgrading or is it just a meme?
Are there other worthwhile alternatives?
there's a minor gimmick build involvng the naja glaive and the quick charge bug for KO/mount/para shenanigans, but it is generally frowned upon for not being the 4chan Approved Sets (i.e. >not using 'best' weapon and armor skills >using armor skills >wearing armor at all >not just kicking everything to death naked go back to reddit you filthy casual)

>don't blame the style for having a literally worthless evade
I'm sorry that I expect my evade to move me away from where I was standing at a reasonable pace.
Going to go Bushido so I actually have an evade.
>monster is targeting Palico
>alright my chance to heal
>monster immediately switches targeting to me as soon as I hit the Y button
>Palico kills the monster while I'm getting off the cart
Alright, that's it. You're fucking shitcanned for life.
Why do people even use Palicos? They're so fucking awful it's not even funny.
MHO's Rathalos is a repel quest.
>being this much of a turbo shitter
the post was more an answer followed by a more general assessment of /mhg/. the threads have both extreme and directly contradictory opinions on every subject (fashion vs function vs lel you use them at all, weapon type elitists, optimal vs fun weapons within each type, and so on), and nothing is ever merely acceptable. it's best to just say to hell with it and play as best as one is able, since everyone who's bitchwhining about things in the thread and who/why the kick people don't actually play monster hunter, and those in the /mhg/ rooms ingame are generally chill people.
fuck i need sleep
i really feel like MHX is going to be the last MH for the 3ds
im guessing they started the planning phase or engine building for MH5 and someone at capcom said let me spearhead another MH for the 3ds well make it all kinds of fucked up and try not to use a ton of new assets. mark my words MH5 will be teased before early 2018
It's the best in the majority of situations but not the only one worth getting. Each of the other three has their own applications, and effect extender is actually only a very slight gain in dps on most monsters where it's super easy to get red buff especially with a 150 speed endgame kinsect (or faster, if you have literally anything besides the effect extender). Effect extender is mostly quality of life, like health honing on most weapons or a lot of the 5 slot skills like autodetect or ranger.
So when is mhx coming out in europe (germany)? Right now there are a lot of games I am playing and have 4u currently on pause.
At the moment I am fine but not sure how I will think about it in a few months.
Any pros or cons for waiting like I plan to do?
There is literally no reason to start from scratch again for a shitty, imbalanced High Rank rehash like MHX. Just keep playing MH3U/MH4U until MH5.
Don't try to fit in just because some neets here want to be cool and play the newest shit.
Earlygame MHX, trying to get Disk Stones. I figured out the Kokoto village elder gives me Veloci quests in one of the areas with disk stones, so I've been mining while fighting off Velociprey/dromes.
Thanks for the input. Will wait then.
Have some HH as thanks
I've had that error before, was just my router blocking some ports from nintendo even though eshop was still working.
Just give your router/modem a quick reset usually does it for me
When the hell did he take up shop anyways? Back during the MH4U craze on release and after, we had some really comfy generals. Now I pop in to discuss some MHX and it's this fucking garbage.
Is there anything worse than fucking retarded, braindead piece of shit noobs carting several times and then not even having the balls to stay and maybe say sorry but just leave and you're alone in the room -2 max potions and dash juice?
I'm not lying when I say I would cut their fucking throats with a blunt knife.
Tri is the comfiest Monster Hunter in the franchise.
I'm neither suicidal nor a crybaby, and you're anything but civilized (learn to spell, for one, before trying to claim otherwise).
Shut the fuck up. You are posting literally 24/7 here. This is the first time I stay up all night but I'm sure you are doing this on a regular basis. You are literally mentally ill and need help.

Oh and sorry, english is my fourth language, got to make some error here and there
What the fuck? I can understand it not being your mother tongue, and MAYBE not being your second language if you live a bilingual country, but why the fuck would you put off the most important language in the world that long?
>you cannot kill me chinks I'm not polished yet!
>I am mentally sound
I know this is bait but that's just too laughable to not respond to.
Psychology, retard. I think you need to learn English too.
I can speak American, Australian, British and Canadian English but that doesn't mean I speak eight languages
There's a lot of work to be done regarding monster polish so I don't blame them. Here's a list of quirks I've noticed off the top of my head:
1. Stuns will override monster reactions to parts breaking. E.g. if you break Shogun's shell when he is stunned, he will stay stunned but his shell will vanish. Critically, this means that Akura will not let you cut off his tail if you break either claw or his head while he is stunned.
2. Monsters that are weakened will play their weakened animation only until their state changes. They then change back to playing their regular animation until they decide to change zones. This means that if you weaken something and it trips immediately after, it will not play its weakened animation, which is why everyone uses passives to figure out when to capture.
3. Akura has a bug where his parts become unbreakable until he changes zone. His colour changes also appear random and do not correpsond to his attack patterns as they should.
4. Ice Chramine will occasionally rotate 180' without playing his turn animation.
There's plenty more besides. They really need to polish the monsters up.
Woah bro, I'm just pointing out how stupid it is Rathalos can only be repelled because he's not polished. It's probably because he will come back later as the final boss in the volcano area or something.
Yeah I know, I'm just frustrated that these polish bugs exist. It somehow affects how Monster Hunter-y it feels to me, if this makes any sense at all, and I wanted to vent. It's like it's almost as good as I would like it to be but these details detract.
>I am mentally sound, but thanks for caring, friend.
That's what pic related thinks too. Sometimes you just have to believe what everyone else thinks.
So apparently, when I enter random halls with my DB paralysis set in MH4U, it displays a glitched 20k paralysis. It has always read 200 on my end. Today is the first day someone told me, and I doubt it has happened in the past.
I don't cheat, no save edits, been playing with you all for a while, and I want to figure out how this is happening!
I'm throwing up a room under fishing. After about 5 mins of leaving/entering and asking for feedback, I'll be ready to hunt! and if we can screencap this awesomeness, I'd like that too.
Hi /mhg/, anyone wants to help an anon with the 7*(high rank) key quests(MHX)? I'll be thankful if you do.

Could you cut him with ESP or would it be some Apex shit, though?
I got the title for speedrunning all the LR monsters at challenge difficulty. Estrellian was mildly tricky and took two tries.
I've heard it's far easier with LBG.
I need some help with 2 HR5 Urgen Quests. Pls come.
There's a few new moves, such as the advancing shell which can be done from a guard(or at any time) by pressing forward and x, quite useful if you play guard based and in general.
If you do the running poke up a ledge you'll auto climb it, and if you do it off a ledge you'll reload a shell into a slam, you can do a full burst or a wyverns fire from here (or both).
Sadly (for gunlance) most things move like they are on crack in 4u and your damage output will be quite subpar when you bust into late g rank.
I forget if you could do this before but you can also sidestep after a charged shell now, so if you're playing widelance this is worth remembering.
>Monster can do 2/5 healthbar with 1 hit to melee guys

Truly the cutest.
It bypasses it completely. You can literally bring nothing with you. All you'll need is the map from the supply box and the paw pass ticket once you've gathered all you can gather. Never had to waste a pickaxe or bugnet since I started playing.
I don't know but I like lolis from a design standpoint. It's cute having little girls swinging swords.
Oh. I missed the porn part.
>Anon tells me to beware of LR/HR rooms because people keep posting custom quests to easy farm stuff

I am disappoint.
They're in the combo list IN THE GAME. The result is not shown, but you should be able to figure it out, considering there're not that many combinations with mushrooms and berries.
How do we make LS and DB users understand that they are not allowed to go near the head while playing online?
I guess I'm missing the joke here.

mining the fatalis blade in pokke has stopped giving me both materials and is now only giving me one, why?
I dont get what the fuck you're trying to convey with this webm.
The mho rathian turn is fucking fluent and practically the same as the other one, i personally think the Nintendo port casualized the living fucking shit out of the series and seeing as how mho is doing it right how it should have been in the first place i know you faggots are gonna sperg out and tell me i'm wrong for pointing out how not only does the game look better but that's a much better way of having the monsters react instead of old ass outdated animations similar to that of a fucking animatronic.
but this is wrong, it doesn't correlate with your dumbass dedication to the mighty capcom dick up your ass while you're sucking nintendo's cock.
and 30fps is the maximum a person can see, right?
Fucking end your life you dumb fucking tripfag.
god damn i swear to god you faggots must be getting paid or something, and if you're not? fucking what else is there to your lives than death? fucking end yourselves.
Ehhh, I don't think I'm able to get it onto a retail cart so I've not tried.
Holy fucking shit, if I had a dollar for every person who's come in here with retarded hodge-podge armor sets that have zero skills, I'd be a millionaire.
Download it, it does nothing to your cart.
It sets up a proxy server that tricks your cart into thinking it's downloading an official Capcom Quest.
Look up a guide or something, it's really easy to use.

I'm tempted to just get powersaves and make a new hunter and get the best gear on him for fun
Whoever designed Najarala and Dalamadur's fights should be fired.
Attacks coming from off-screen, weird on-again-off-again hitboxes along their bodies, and generally fucking with your camera, are terrible game design.

Okay, what gives? I don't remember fence switches going down that quickly in MH4U. I could have sworn that fence switches in MH4U lasted like 3-4 minutes.
I'm having fun... I think? I don't know. It feels like work more than anything, but I really want to get good at this game. I want to be able to constantly be on the aggressive nonstop without being touched and I feel CB is the only weapon that allows that playstyle. I want to be able to GP flawlessly. I also want to get the best set possible, so it's a lot of grinding.
No other game has made me want something like this before, maybe this is what addiction feels like.

I am, but not by choice. My internet is too shit to hold the connection.
I've basically ruled out getting any Dala stuff, I can't be bothered to waste most of an hour whittling down its health, especially since it's such a dull fight. At least Gog moves around a bit, and has clear hitboxes that make sense.
HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO BEAT OUTRAGED KHEZU, CEANATAUR AND RAIZEX
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT
They say you got kicked in Japan version.
But during translation in west they figured it best say communication error because America suffers the highest rate of teen suicides out of all countries and Nintendo doesn't want to be sued due to hurting emotional children's feelings by telling them they aren't wanted.
If MHX even gets a U edition
I mean it probably will, since they've gotta milk that cash cow, but there's a chance it might not since it was just an anniversary/nostalgiawank project in the first place.
Keeping track of what parts you need to get is minmaxing now?
Someone has to do it and god knows the retards with swords won't.
It's hard to hit tails, we should be rewarded for being skilled enough to do it.
Also solo play but >sologunning
Is baby upset? I have to carefully aim at the enemy and hit specific body parts, using the right ammo for the right enemy. I also have to make sure he's not about to charge me before I fire, have to figure out when there's a safe window to reload and generally I'm also responsible for lifepowdering unless I want you swordie retards carting on me.
Being a gunner takes a lot more skill than being a dumb blademaster.
Let me guess, you run Hunting Horn solo too?
i run everything solo because i'm not shit at the game.
are you implying gunner is some kind of support class?
>scared shitless to gun solo
>claims gunning takes more skill
Are you being serious right now?
The game is a fucking cakewalk with allies and you're bragging because you're one of many weapons that has reload times?
This must be bait, it has to be bait.
Being a gunner in MHX is trivial with bushido m8.
This is my first time being 100% gunner since FU and I'm rekting shit. I'm soloing gathering hall as well and made it to HR7 already.
>I have to carefully aim at the enemy and hit specific body parts, using the right weapon/element for the right enemy. I also have to make sure he's not about to charge me before I attack, have to figure out when there's a safe window to [heal/boost stamina/play song/do anything]
Oh look, it's basically every weapon

Then dodge it, it's got a pretty big tell
Alternatively, just pack Herbs, Blue Mushrooms, and Honey to make more potions between hunts you scrub
Probably the digging. That got me hard the first time, I kinda bullshitted my way through the fight with a friend's help after that but a lot of it was spent barely dodging the fucking digging attack.
i know its a big tell but if i stay careful enough to dodge it i'm not doing enough damage.
my inventory space is pretty limited with everything i need for this quest, but i'll try to squeeze in some extra potion mats
i was always shit at dodging the digging until i discovered one weird trick (ukanlos hate me)

Two polls friends:
Least favorite to see online/shitter weapon:
Daily reminder to not use gunlance in multiplayer.
Using sub optimal weapons is okay when playing alone, however when playing online please note that you are wasting others times by bringing in a shit weapon. I'd rather have you go nyanta.
Lots of moves are fast.
I know it's just an excuse, but I have the sound off and am listening to music. I don't play well if I'm not hearing the monster do stuff. Also, raizex is kinda janky in its movements.
You act like TAers are privy to arcane knowledge the rest of us aren't.
In most cases it will have the most dps, but not by a lot. You lose roughly three seconds of attacking when you grab an extract. When most IG TAs are about 4-6 minutes, that means overall you're probably spending about 24-36 seconds getting extracts without effect extender, of which roughly 12-18 seconds would be saved from using effect extender. The reason this small amount is (usually) worth it (apart from TAs being about shaving off every little bit of time, like any speedrun) is that you only ever use the kinsect offencively so that you're never not damaging the monster, as in while you pursue it in certain attack patterns (which you'll also see TAs do), so the other kinsect types don't really benefit your times even by those 6-9 seconds (in most cases). But pierce is good for getting hard to reach extracts and knocking monsters out of the air without sheathing and using a flashbomb and while doing significant damage, the balanced bug is good for people that get hit (and if you're getting hit enough to benefit from it in a TA you've probably already fucked your TA up) as well as getting your red and white or orange and white at the same time from a lot of monsters (a slight dps increase overall, comparable to effect extender's), and charge time down mostly exists for fun but somewhat stupid stuff like KOing with fleetflammer and kinsect-only hunts, but nonetheless has a niche.
And kinsect-only TAs should be a thing imo.
So yeah, in most cases EE is the best if what you're doing is TA, but the balanced bug is probably best for the average player in most situations, and pierce up is better in a handful of hunts, and each of them besides balanced and EE plays differently which makes them worth using for the same reason weapons other than GS and IG are worth using despite being weaker.

So are you purposefully gimping yourself then?
>so the other kinsect types don't really benefit your times even by those 6-9 seconds
Meant 12-18, went back and edited the times after remembering you'd still be getting white extract on TAs but missed that one.
Though 3 seconds is a long estimate, so 6-9 may actually be closer when with most monsters you launch the kinsect directly into them point blank then recall it.
The problem isn't even suboptimal damage, you may not contribute as much as some shitter twelve year old (or anybody else) using a GS but unless there's four people and the hall was likely to get someone else in the fourth slot you're still contributing damage that wouldn't otherwise be there. The problem is you're not only doing less damage, you're using one of the most disruptive weapons in the game, if not the most disruptive, unless you're just using it as a shittier lance- in which case you should just use a lance instead. You're not only not contributing much, you're making others contribute LESS because they have to stand away from the monster or get blasted away.
