What your choice of melee arms says about you

>Greatsword
You want to make every hit count. You love big numbers. You could be a noob who misses 50% of his charges, but there is a chance you're already a veteran who has studied the monsters' movement patterns and who can get "GOTCHA BITCH!" moments

>Longsword
Everyone hates you, even there are many other weapons who are worse at tripping others online now. You're either a weeb who wants to be a honoraburu samurai, but you might as well be a pro who wants to show what he can do with such a hated weapon

>Sword and Shield
Two options here. 1. You're a complete noob who doesn't even know what an item box is. 2. You're a tryhard hipster who insists on playing the least liked weapon and proving he can do well

>Dual Blades
heh.. *flys down looking at u* It is time for you.. to meet your maker. *swiftly teleports behind you and unleashes a ginjenzetsubai storm level 7, leaving you seemingly unharmed as I shadowstep behind you again* *3 seconds later you drop dead*

>Hammer
You know the hammer is very strong and you live for those moments when you break heads in. You're either a tryhard or a guy who's not very good at the game but who realized Hammer brings good results even at low skill levels

>Hunting Horn
You play a healer in MMOs. High chance of you being a beta who wants to be bossed around. Maybe you just enjoy rocking a guitar or a poogie stick though
>>
>Lance
Lances have been top tier in MH for ages, only in 4U did they get toned down a little bit. Odds are good you're a MH veteran who always loved the lance and who's not going to change that because of small adjustments. Skill levels can vary greatly between terrible players who guard lance and pros who evade lance

>Gunlance
You want to make shit explode. Lances are not radical enough and don't deliver the "boom" you seek. You will go out of your way to make sure you unload that wyvernfire in a good spot, it's what you live for

>Switchaxe
If you picked this up in 3U you either just liked how it plays or you were that guy who went "WOW COOL IT MORPHS I'M LIKE A TRANSFORMER", in which case you probably moved on to charge blade now. You rarely ever sheathe up and enjoy being able to switch between fast and slow with axe/sword. Like Gunlance players, you just love unloading the big boom that is elemental discharge

>Charge Blade
"HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER. EAT MY ULTRA BUUUUURST!" You're either a meme master, a guy who came here from Switchaxe because it's even morph-ier or a noob who uses CB because it does very well even without any skill

>Insect Glaive
You try to mount monsters every 20 seconds. You enjoy having to send your bug out to grab the different buffs. Probably a good player but your obsession over mounting pisses people off

Why is Sword and Shield considered the worst weapon?
>>
>>283576359
weakest and doesn't do anything particularly well.

LS and DB can apply elements just as well and do more damage and it's shield is shit.

If you are using it and enjoying it, don't worry about it. Just keep having fun.

>[...] but your obsession over mounting pisses people off
And why exactly would people be pissed off by this? If anything I'm pissed off when they screw me over while I'm trying to bring the monster down. I'm giving them time to whet their blades, heal and stuff like that, after which they can land free hits.
>>
>>283577051
Because people get pissed off over the most inane little shit when playing games, nowadays.
>>
>Dual Blades
Dual blades would be infinitely more interesting if your main priority weren't to spam demon dance, I sorta wished they would have addressed this by now.
>SnS
I wish SnS could leap, being able to use items doesn't really make up for the severe lack of damage (though the element power is pretty good). Even with the new charge attack it's pretty shitty in comparison to anything else.
>Insect Glaive
Been using it a lot, and it seems too strong for how agile it is. Being able to leap is a huge utility and I think it needs to suffer a damage nerf to make up for it. Buffing yourself with the bug tends to feel like more effort than it's worth, considering it lasts about a minute and you have to constantly spam one of your weakest attacks to even get it up and running.
>Switch Axe
I want to like this weapon but I feel like it's a step in the wrong direction. Phial discharge is cool as hell but the way the attacks are designed are unlike most other weapons. Basically everything combos infinitely and there doesn't feel like there's any rhyme or reason to perform certain attacks over others. Whereas most weapons have a clear decision of how you should perform combos, swaxe feels like a weapon for a button masher.

Right, let's settle this.

Make your tier charts for MH weapons:
http://www.mmcafe.com/tiermaker/usf4/index.html#bk5

Ryu = SnS
Ken = GS
Chun li = LS
Blanka = DS
Cammy = Hammer
Sakura = HuntHorn
Sagat = Lance
Bison = GL
Balrog = SA
Vega = CharBla
Dalsim = BugStick

Gunners need not apply

What is this shit?

Also, why the fuck would anyone pick a single melee weapon to exclusively use?

In MHFU I switched between dual blades, greatswords, gunlances and longswords for the laughs.

It's like you don't want any variety from your grindfest.

Absolute shit tier noob to MH here. I tried the demo and didn't like the Greatsword or the Lance but I did like the Gunlance. Am I a scrub?

Also, how do I lock onto a monster or immobilize it? They keep running circles around me and dodging my shit. What's the deal with the cats?
>>
>Just recently got into MH3U
>Chose Lance because I like using lances/spears/halberds in vidya
>Poke monsters in the ass until I manage to poke Ceadeus enough to get to High Rank

I know it's not the most efficient weapon or the most powerful, but goddamn it's fun to block a giant fireball and counter with a stab that takes a tail off.

Fuck the Gigginox though, it's hitbox seems to be the antithesis of my move set.
>>
>>283578578
>Am I a scrub?

No. There is no such thing as scrub weapons in MH except the longsword and anyone who tells you otherwise is a memefaggot trying to stir shit up
>>
>>283578578
Why would that make you a scrub?

You can't lock on to monsters, only look in their direction (readjust camera) with the L trigger. It's not a permanent lockon though.
>>
>>283576865
>Item usage while unsheathed.
>Quickest block animation bar lances.
>Roll out of any attack quickly.

>>
>>283578578
Click the monster's icon on the bottom screen to lock it, push L to face toward it once locked.
Monsters have sort of a "stagger threshold" based on damage to each area of their body, dealing enough damage to a single part will topple them over.

You HAVE to be good at the game to play hammer because all you have is a fucking roll dodge. If you aren't good with hammer you are going to get fucking carted every 2 seconds.

Everything else is whatever
>>
All the weapons feel like wet noodles when I slap them against the gorillion health dinosaurs. I don't want to stunlock the thing, but any reaction to my weapon that's as big as the dinosaur I'm fighting would be nice.

It's funny because longsword trips less than other weapons now and is harder to use too.

>>283578870
>The game just fucking came out.
75% of the monsters are from older games
>>
>>283575260
I have no idea why people dislike dual blades. They're good utility, good damage, can cut tails, can break parts becaue blade dance is uninterruptible, and most importantly, they stay out of the fucking way and don't trip people.

Not to mention a shitty dual blades will at least hit the monster and contribute, whereas your average dime-a-dozen fuck-awful greatsworder/hammer will never hit anything, and generally just piss everyone off with constant tripping and launching.
>>
>>283578870
>You HAVE to be good at the game to play hammer

Fucking lol

Hammer is beyond easy to use
I'd go as far as to say it's the EASIEST weapon out of all. It has a low skill ceiling, but it's very good

No, it has a low skill floor. It has one of the highest skill ceilings out of all the weapons.

exactly this. i love how it feels when a timed swing connects but the raw damage compensates for some of my mistakes..just fought my first low rnak rathian..it killed me (it was limping though) but I KNOW i will kill it tzhe next time i try..and then a second time and a third.

>>283577051
In addition to that, don't aerial attacks deal extra damage? You're not really losing anything in trying.
>>
So lance is for faggots and gunlace is for manly men?
>>
>>283579664

Aerial attacks don't deal extra damage in exception for some specific weapons.
Furthermore, the downtime caused by watching the player trying to hump the monster tends to be a bigger hit to your dps than just fighting it in the meanwhile.
Mounting is great for getting monsters out of rage mode or to create an opening.
It's shit to spam the entire fight.

how does the mounting attack work? haven't figured out how to properly attack/ not get thrown out yet
>>
>>283580263
Mash X while the dragon head is blue, hold R while it's red/orange. If you mash X while holding R you'll get thrown off.
>>
>>283580263

You press Y to knock the monster down, you hold R to steady yourself on the monster's back.
Then you try to fill the "knock down bar" before the monster is capable of throwing you off.
Steadying requires stamina and thus requires to be timed, and you can't steady while stabbing or directly after stabbing.
>>
>>283572080
Not even involved in MH but 'tryhard' was a word invented by deadweights who want a buzzword to bitch about people who curbstomp their shit.

I wouldn't consider using supposedly shit items to be 'tryhard'. The point is that they want to win so they use the best winning conditions.

At least learn what buzzwords mean before throwing them around.

To add to this, the dragon head turns red because the monster is resisting your Mount--either by trying to buck you off, or roaring. The camera centers on you when it's not doing anything, so you can use that and learn the monster's buck pattern and roar animation to improve your timing.

>>283580225
But that's wrong. Pro lance players literally never block, they only evade and keep attacking nonstop

I'm brand new to the game and want to use the gunlance but I am concerned about sharpness.

I read that each shot reduces the sharpness of my weapon by an entire sharpness level, so, after four shots i'm on minimum sharpness? My gun holds five shots and I see people in videos using shot combos all the time, what am I missing?
>>
>>283580863
Don't you need armor skills for that though?
>>
>>283581156
>read that each shot reduces the sharpness of my weapon by an entire sharpness level

That's so fucking wrong, wherever you read that from isn't good info.
>>
>>283575203
That's how I play Dark Souls when it comes to the face buttons
>>
>>283581156
Sharpness is measured in pixels IIRC. So each shot would reduce your current sharpness by 1 pixel. Having used GL myself, that is incredibly inaccurate. It's more likt 1/4 a pixel per shot
>>
>>283572080
As a longsword user:
I began with LS because it was the most scrub friendly weapon, did well with it and kept using it.

>play Greatsword

Hammer feels the same way. Very few movies you actually do

>>283581445
LS is by far not the most scrub friendly

I'm curious which IS attacks are most effective and how worthwhile getting the buffs are.
>>
>>283581493
Except that's not true for the hammer, even though there's a limited move set I end up using all of them in different situations, especially the light A tap into the combo when I need to stun, and varying charge level combos.

>>283580828

Only slow weapons have the highest skill cap, because they are reliant on being able to count stagger thresholds to do damage.

Doubly so for blunt, timing stagger/ko/mount chains turns monsters into punching bags, while failing to do so results in garbage damage and constant damage taken.

>>283581697

The Insect Glaive buff is totally worth it. You can mark the enemies with R (either shoot a long range shot by pressing R and then letting it go or hitting R after any melee attack) to make your bug more likely to get that buff. At the very least you want to get attack + something else, but all 3 really turns you into a monster killing machine.

>Switch Axe

You hit buttons depending on what you need to hit. If you have time use the slower heavy attacks, otherwise use the quick attacks and get out. Plus the reach attack for high tails (Diablos).

I went Sword Mode in 3U pretty much whenever I could though.

I'm not a fan of ridiculous looking way OTT weapons and armour; monster hunter games generally have good gear looking completely fucking retarded and low-end shit gear looking sensible and practical. Is there anything akin to WoW's transmog?

That should never happen. Either you're bullshitting, hiding something (for instance the fact that there was more than one large monster in that area of the map), it was a one off event or your game is fucking bugged.
Or maybe you're just swimming around like a sperg lord because you have a bad setup on your second screen. I'm not saying the swimming was amazing, but it is in no way so bad that you can only get three hits in before the monster pisses off to find a more interesting opponent, like a jaggi or something.

Yes, they are the huge spikes on her back. Mounting it does decent damage to the poison spikes. Also fighting below the web canopy and fighting her with a weapon that can hit high up (CB's axe mode is extremely good at this) while she is hanging from the canopy.

Unless there were significant changes in 4G, discharge is a waste of phial outside of a few cases. You'll get more out of the weapon per sharpness, per time, and per phial with basic sword strikes, and the most damaging move is HnS. Discharge is best when hitting a monster that's too hard for a normal attack.

Ok, on the upswing of the ax hitting x like it owes you money and fucked your sister gives you alternating diagonal slashes that you can do at the cost of stamina. In my opinion doing that is better in most cases for a downed monster with the occasional sword burst. You just have to be aware of the monster's patterns and do what feels right plus the sword mode has shit mobility.

I can understand having a "main" weapon that you're most comfortable with, but I don't get people who only use that weapon without switching it up pretty often.

Variety is important, especially in a game where you'll often wind up farming the same monster over and over again.

Some items are basically vendor trash that can't be used for anything. The game automatically converts them to money at the end of the quest so you don't have to sell them.

Honestly if it just had a melee attack like the bow did, it'd be my ideal weapon and I wouldn't be alternating shit. Try to get good at using the targeting method of holding down the R button instead of locking yourself in place with the scope. It's a lot easier to do this with an N3DS, or at least I imagine it is. Then again, I'm probably the newest one here in terms of MH so take my advice with a grain of salt. This is just what I found makes it work better for me. Also clust shots. Those are fucking good
>>
>>283601646
There is a reason for MonHun. It is simply the most hardcore series out there by miles. It is more of a martial art, a way of life, than a video game just because it demands so much more of you than any other vidya.

I haven't used gunlance since Portable 3rd, but if I remember correctly, you're supposed to mix shots into your combos. In particular, there are ways to charge your normal shots to make them do more damage at the cost of time.

Wait how is the quest progression in this game?

3U was
Village=Solo quests
Marine village thing= Solo/Multiplayer quests

Here I just did the first quests you get in the area around Joseph Joestar and after killing the Big ass Insect I didn't get any, got a expedition quest and already completed it

After this is Guild Multiplayer/Solo only?

There's no more Solo only quests?
>>
>>283607626
Villages = solo
Gathering hall/guild = solo or multi.
>>
>>283606595
>>283606215
Now I'm looking up the changes for the 4U Gunlance. It looks like they nerfed the poking damage a bit, but buffed the shell damage. So in theory, you'll want to be shooting out your shells as much as possible. Apparently, the shells don't give a fuck about hardness or anything and just do a set amount of damage, so they're really great at breaking parts you can shoot.

Try to wyvern fire whenever you get a chance. In the meantime, keep shelling the monster. Use charged shots if possible by holding the button down after poking. If you're in a situation where you can't reload, keep poking until you can.

How the hecky do I actually initiate a mount attack? I know how to play the minigame but actually getting to that point seems like a lot of trouble. It's difficult to bait the monster into an area where it's even possible if you aren't using the glaive. Usually they just leap up to my level before I can get the jump on them.
>>
>>283607819

there are actually people who just use it for buffs though. I've seen them do Deviljho or something in 3U and just hide in the fucking corner. Ridiculous.

If you're a hammer player I highly recommend giving HH a try because its moveset happens to be really good against things that hammer isn't. And you can still keep the KO/'I control the head' kind of gameplay.

Also landing a KO on a monster with the last hit of a recital is up there with landing greatsword charges.

>>283608220

wut

most of Tri's content was online, unless you got into it after the servers were shut down.

I'd say get your wycoon and cook leveled up a bit, by the time you clear LR village they will be in decent shape. Personally I plan to clear village entirely before going online, and I will take my time.

The nice thing about leveling offline and online at the same time would be that you can always just hop online to get farming out of the way, when you need a new set/weapon. That's how I did it in 3U.

I generally try and fight near little ledges. Jumping off high perches is too unreliable since the monsters tend to move out of the way. I just fight normally until an opportunity presents itself - I sometimes use jumping attacks on GS to get its super swing out too.

I don't usually go out of my way to try and initiate a mount, with some exceptions like when I want to knock Zinogre or Gore out of their rage modes.

How do I get good with the glaive? It was the first weapon I tried in 4U, but I found it difficult to aim the bug and to hit agile, small monsters. I ended up going with charge axe instead for something new, but I'm thinking of switching back to gunlance.
