Confirmed for non-greatsword using plebeian and a sleep bombing babby.

Depends on if there's one specific practical weakpoint. Honestly, you could just lay all of your bombs in front of their head if you don't need any parts and just have your GS or GL Level 3 charge them.

Aim for his head and sides. If he starts stuttering and shaking and groaning, just back off. Don't involve yourself with that shit. You basically should dedicate your time to cutting open his torso on land, it's his most accessible weakpoint.

Ah, Not going to judge but I'm >>253769071

Greatswords are very slow, and since the Lagiacrus is a bit fast, youre already at a heavy disadvantage. What I can suggest is that you keep your weapon sheathed until you are going to attack. This is advice for both planes of combat. When the Lagiacrus is going to use the slide tackle underwater (you know the one), either fast block by pressing R+X+A, or try to dodge vertically. You can block his electric AOE move, just face him when doing it. If uses the massive-scale AOE (he curls up and momentarily boils the water around him) swim AWAY, the extra sparks he emits cannot be blocked normally.

Need me to keep going? I don't mind.

Late reply, I was busy

G-rank alatreon is the sole exception, and that's because it's the hardest monster in the game. Fuck, maybe in the whole series. Probably the one monster that doesn't fear pic related.
>>
I tried using lances, guys. I really did, but those sperm guzziling weapons just aren't for me.
>>
>>253771807

And on that note, I will totally ditch DS for a weapon that masculine. You have NO idea how sweet and salty my tears were when I saw a preview of that.

>> the manliness of an axe, the opportunity grabbing capability of an SnS

Oh lord, you truly do love me.
>>
>>253772239
I just cannot use lances since dodging backwards is really weird
>>
>>253772093
Again, evade extender is kind of a must IMO, Attack up is great for adding DPS for sting-and-run tactics. Any way to improve Stamina (Either have it recharge faster or deplete slower) Is a must. The G Rank Sand Barioth set can do all of that. It's pretty much made for DS users.
>>
>>253771232
I main the duel blades, the best way to get better with them is to treat them like a hybrid between the S&S and great sword. You can get some swings in and roll normally, but when a big window appears, that's when you do the demon dance and combo like crazy.

It also helps to have a few mega dash drinks so you don't have to worry about demon dance's stamina draining and if you decide to invest in evasion+ skills, it makes you just as good dodging skills as a lancer.
>>

In what way? do you just not look around fast enough? I need to know where the problem is, Else I'll explain what you already know again.

This may not make sense, but I don't really view them as different games. I mean, I can see the differences between FU and 3U, but it all just feels like Monster Hunter to me.

I don't know. He keeps moving to fast for me to stay in range, sometimes my weapon won't sheath no matter how much I spam the button, sometimes I don't attack from sprint swim, I lose my depth perception so sometimes I'm not even in range when I manage to get a hit off. On land everything goes fine and I have no problems whatsoever, but underwater is pure hell. Doesn't really matter, I only have to fight him once for the capture mission and then I'm never going to see that motherfucker again.

Huh. This sounds more like an aptitude problem, but your going to have to fight him some more if you want to upgrade that GS your using. Why are you using that one against him anyways (assumption)?

Make sure your attack animation is done before trying to sheathe.
When sheathed, keep him at arms reach, unless he deliberately tries a charging attack from afar (spiral swim move), at which point you should just wait for him to come to you.
I cant just tell you to fix your depth perception, so ill instead suggest you memorize the GS range.

Dont mean to be a downer, But youre not gonna get the I.Lagi alone. He has to much HP, Range (from his buffed size), and Damage to be able to solo. If you get careless youre dead. If you dont, you'll run out of time.

I honestly think it was the slime damage + sword mode having minds eye so I can just hack away anywhere I want. I've been using hammer for a long time and I kill things pretty fast but most things I have with slime kills faster.

Stygian Zinogre. Edgy as fuck wolf feels like he was designed by a five year old, his attacks are stupid powerful too, basically Mary Sue in monster form.

god damn I hate hunting these bastards, they aren't even HARD, I just have a hateboner for them that distracts me

The weirdest fucking thing happened to me yesterday. I wanted to make Nargacuga armor in G rank and after I think 4 hunts I had everything I needed, with a mantle and several medulla to spare. I didn't even cut his tail, only broke it, which is only a 5% chance of giving you the lash. Why can't life always be this easy

>>253777629
Your biggest issue is going to be money and materials since you want to buy and craft ammo. Also you want to treat bowguns like an elemental weapon since each bowgun carries different ammo, or works better for different ammo.

Always keep your distance and since you're not using a heavy, you can still evade with it out and get on the move faster since it doesn't fold.

>>
>>253777629
Get a Greatsword bro, find out what "element" the gun has (Gigginox weapons have more poison shots, Rathian rifles have more fire shots, etc) and remember to cause status effects on the monster like sleep and paralyze.

You can't claw. However, it's not impossible to get by with L for camera centering, d-pad for camera control while attacking, and virtual pad for camera control while moving. If you wanna go full pleb, there's a toggle that makes the camera center onto the monster with L, but not follow it.

If you have a Circle Pad Pro you can use the right circle pad for camera control, but far and away its best usage is for LZ and RZ. You can set them to turn the camera left and right, which I mostly use with bows because THUMB IN USE, NEED TO MOVE, GOTTA TURN CAMERA

>>253792481
They're all great. Disregard >>253792957
Basically you want to use what best suits your playstyle.

Do you prefer to use Wyvernfire at every given opportunity and watch your cooldown religiously? Long is for you. It's stronger than Normal and has more shots than Wide. This is also widely considered the best type for shelling constantly between attacks.

Do you like to charge shell often? Wide's your boy. Incidentally wide is particularly shit at shotgun slams, with an 0.9x modifier per shell consumed.

Do you LOVE doing the shotgun slam? That's Normal for you. It also has a huge clip so you can shell between attacks often, but you'll do less damage per shell doing so than you would with Long.
>>
>>253793049
Happens to me all the time. If the desire sensor was real I'd wonder why capcom would do such a thing.

The other day I was hunting and I just thought "fuck the desire sensor" and got everything I needed from a few hunts.
>>
>>253793878
so i am not the only one experiencing this?
>>
>>253794540
No. I tried farming for a gem for days and never got one. Gave up and I eventually fought one months later for fun and got 2.

Same thing with G. Ceadeus. Just give up for a few weeks and then you'll get whatever you want when you come back. Or do what I did and realize the desire sensor is all in your head and start getting any item you want quickly

Wide is the only way to go. Especially when 4U and its Artillery Master skill roll around.

Towards the later shelling ranks, Wyvernfire can easily match up with bombs, same with the Shotgun Slam (the firing of which in particular is known as the Full Burst.)

Fun fact: Full Burst is directly affected by how many shells are loaded in the clip. So you have Load Up, you'll get 6 shells per Normal clip instead of 5, adding another 1.2x damage boost to the overall Full Burst. Keeping in mind that it already modifies each Normal shell by 1.1x, that's a pretty significant damage output.

Wyvernfire is best used when you have a good opening, and can often flinch/stagger/trip monsters. Full Burst is much the same, but you get more opportunities to think about it every time you slam.

Honestly I doubt too many of us thought of that with Bane in mind. We just thought "Monster Hunter for you!" was a great thing.
>>
>>253796106
You realize Artillery Master boosts ALL shelling by 1.3, right?

Also it reduces wyvernfire cooldown to 80 seconds.

It's a big game. No it isn't

>>253797446

>>
>>253797356
Wide does the most damage with actual shelling, which is what matters most. Burst is garbage. Long WF is beefy but wide is just so much better for shelling.
>>
>>253797787
>Burst is garbage
>Rivals bombs
Yeahno. It takes several charged wide shells to do what one Full Burst can do under the same conditions can do (Load Up, Artillery Master and so on).
>>
>>253798125
Burst takes forever to recover, reload, and then do again. It's shit.
>>
>>253796106
shit he's not even using the fucking lance, just shelling.
>>
>>253798272
But it's not shit at all you fucking ignoramus. You're ignoring that Wide has a longer recovery time than other shells and has to reload more often to boot.

Nevermind that online you're going to be loathed with such ferocity that aeons of descendents will curl up in their graves if you try what the dude in that video is doing, but solo you're going to be stuck recovering and sharpening so much it's not even funny, y'know, considering that wide shells use up sharpness 1.5x faster.

For a moment just humouring your misinformedness, let's perform a thought exercise. Maybe wide shelling is the best for speed kills. But factors such as those mentioned above, will enforce that only the absolute best players can use that kind of strategy. But it's more than that. Even if that's the case, this is Monster Hunter and the resulting difference in time between a player at peak of skill and ability with Wide as compared to Long or Normal will mean about a minute or two of difference at best, as is normally the case with these things in Monster Hunter.

Then there's also that Zinogre is hilariously easy to gunlance in the first place. Let's not forget that Shining Ishtar video, which was done with a Normal lance. Other monsters will not be so forgiving for the kind of playstyle in the video you linked.

The different shell types encourage different playstyles, which as always will be more or less effective depending on the player's style and the monster's choreography.
>>
>>253799796
git gud
>>
>>253799642
Yep. Poking got its damage reduced quite a bit, as well as a speed reduction. Shelling is king in 4, and wide sits at the top.
>>253799796
You seem upset. You don't need to worry about sharpness so much with wide, as pokes are mainly used to get shells out.
Back in p3rd, shelling was kind of dumb because of the low levels. Only one GL had wide 4, and it was garbage otherwise. Poison was doing most of the work in that video.
Dora has done more than stygian, you know.
>>
>>253801119
so the gunlance is actually a gunlance now and not a lance with combo extenders
>>
>>253801284
You can still play it like lance, if you want. Might as well just play lance though.
>>
>>253801119
Everything got its damage reduced quite a bit. There were damage value nerfs across most weapons.

Keep in mind that this is mostly in regard to 4. Some things that were done in 4 were changed or redacted in 4U. For instance, Dual Blades were made to consume sharpness twice as quickly in 4, and this was undone in 4U, where dual blades and SnS also enjoy having their 0.7x element modifier removed. It is not unfathomable that damage values might get buffed up a little again.

>>253801490
>>253801284
It's a real shame. I had always despised the lance because it was so boring and too limited. Rushing stab for closing the distance? Explosions? That was more my bag. I assume that once people get their hands on 4G we'll have more information to go off of. Right now we're mostly running on hearsay and MH4 info.

Should they have made it so that it's utterly pointless to actually ever stab, they'll removed the lance of being of any real use other than leading in to the gun.

You can backhop though anything though. Jho's deagon breath, tremors, roars, Black Diablos charges.

I haven't tested it on Uragaan's rolling though, I think that one might be not-evadable.
>>
>>253812956
The problem is that I simply can't into backhops. It's weird. I don't like not being able to roll forward. The lance's limited mobility is really what kills it for me and is why I love the Gunlance so much - that fucking rushing stab. It's goddamn beautiful.

SnS makes fast monsters fun as fuck to fight.

No gimmicky meters to fill, no bullshit charge attacks, no silly auras to maintain, just pure speed, skill and evasion.

Just stay on that ass as much as possible and you'll be downing monsters like it ain't no thing.

Because no mater how fucking fast you are, even with heroics a single charge 1 do more damage than your silly combos

Yes. In G Rank unite the jump would home in on you.

Yeah, they always had that ability.
As they ranked up they gained the ability to jump, move a bit, then ground pound.

It's there for people used to the PSP games, where you could change the position of the camera whilst attacking (nearly impossible on the 3DS/WiiU when using fast weapons).

3U looks pretty shit on the 3DS, how's 4U looking?

Well that explains it, never got to G Rank in Unite. I really should return to that game, but been too preoccupied with TriU.
>>
>>253824380
I'm not mad, I just prefer damaging consistently insteady of dealing huge damage and then running away.

Heck, as long as I get a monster killed that's ok.
And if we are going to talk about skills then meet me after class with Evasion +2, Sharpness +1 and Marathon Runner. No need to get our damage higher or be worried about defense when you can dodge and hit with no problem.

>>253767824
took me 5 hours and 3 different teams of people to kill him once. i didnt expect him to last for 25 min.
i played GS btw.

Then it's like Tri, where High Rank is guild only.

>>253823149
just cause you actually try to block with the weapons doesn't mean anyone else does, i use SnS and the only time i put up the shield is when i want to use an item and even then it's for half a second.

yian garuga in freedom 1i ended up using the glitch to get past the questdunno if it was a glitch but it was some shit where you trade the elder in the forest and wait out the clock, it got to the point where i could predict a rathalos move before it did it but i still couldn't beat the fucking garuga.
>>
>>253824985
Cephadrome in MH1.
Sonic bombs were a precious commodity.
>>
>>253825425
We need this in the main game. Maybe not as op as they are in Frontier but it would be nice to have a faster blunt damage weapon.
>>
>>253825623

That Garuga was bullshit, in the later PSP games he was easier but what the fuck

I was scared of that thing
>>
>>253825572

I don't know. For some reason Gold Rathian is easy as shit compared to Pink.
>>
>>253825659

But you can make them

All you need is a screamer and some bomb casings
>>
>>253825815
i could probably beat him if i go back now but for all my time in freedom 1 i could not for the life of me beat him, anything else in the game was a piece of cake but for some reason that cunt always stomped me.

The sub sucks but other than that I find it a blast.
The monsters are all really fun to fight, lots of nice revisions to old 2nd gen monsters (Cephadrome attacks out of the sand, Plessy doesn't stay in the water, Kush and rath don't dick around in the air for hours).

It does get pretty over the top at higher ranks so it isn't something you want to start with honestly, but for someone who has played pretty much every other MH out there it's a nice change of pace.

Designs are lackluster though. I tend to forget how silly they look when they are in motion though.

You know, the first and only MH game I've played is 3U, and I don't think I've hit a "wall." I had to fight Agnaktor three times before I could kill it, but that's the most tries I've needed for any monster so far. But there's still quit a few monsters I haven't fought; I'm about to fight my first Zinogre.

For all the shit banana biscuit designs that Frontier has, there is one set of monsters I'd love to face, the Gougarf. It'd be nice if the main series had a monster team that was dependent on one another and had team attacks.

Gougarfs are amazing.
They also get you access to the skill that gives you dropkicks.

You can see a bit of Rajang in them, but more than that they are Monster Hunter's first pro-wrestling tag team.

The first time my group tried them, Lolo (the red one), grabbed Ray (the blue one), threw Ray into the air, and he bodyslammed one of us to death.
We abandoned soon after.

Meraginasu is a fun fight at least.

His whole gimmick is that he can't see very well, so he locates prey by sound. Doing so he'll target one player and then relentlessly attack him.

Now at first you might think this means the other 3 have an easy time at fighting him, but then comes the fact that Mera is actually really inaccurate so he doesn't so much as aim at one player, but instead aim in the general direction of that player and then throw big ranged attacks everywhere.

Moves really fast, so the poor sap who is targeted is running like a bitch usually.

Also his weapons have dragon and ice as their element, so that's pretty sexy.
>>

The rumor is that the Koreans (I think) threw a shit fit that Frontier monsters made it into a mainline game, that Frontier was somehow above the rabble or some shit.

Granted it's all just scuttlebutt, so I might have been like 5 Korean neckbeards who actually threw the shit fit, but the rumor stuck.
I'd go digging for proof if I cared about it enough.

Doesn't really seem that big a deal. As long as the monsters they bring over fit the overall design it shouldn't really be an issue. The 4th generation has a lot of terrain and verticality, I can only imagine the crazy shit they could do with Gougarf.
