Which elements are most useful? i.e. Which elements are good against a lot of monsters, or resisted by few?

Also general questions:
Sword A has 200 raw, 200 fire.
Sword B has 400 raw.

Which sword is best against:
A monster weak to fire?
A monster resistant to fire?
A monster impartial to fire?
>>
>>283843171
If you're failing at getting White/Orange you should wait til you have a better chance at getting them otherwise you're just running around being useless.

Where the fuck do I get more palicos? I know the tutorial quest said I can just talk and recruit them in quests, but I'm up to HR 8 quests and never seen one while out hunting?

>>283843334
Sounds like you're just missing the old game, you can always go back and play it.

Also, the farm is the exact same thing as 3U.
>>
>>283843515
You obviously didn't do all your village quests

>>283843515

They are in the little felyne caves in each area.

Or hanging out in the small areas in free hunt where you find poogie outfits
>>
>>283843515
How far are you in story? You get the ability to recruit more around 3-4star
>>
>>283843335

if a monster is not explicitly vulnerable to an element, that element will do nothing. Even monsters who are 'weak' to an element might not take significant damage from it on certain body parts.

It's also dependent on the weapon itself. For example a greatsword, the 400 raw one would be better everywhere. A 400 raw sword and shield would also probably be better, but the 200-200 wouldn't be awful if the monster was very weak to fire.

There's calculators for this shit but I generally don't worry about it much since I use weapons that favor raw damage, and bowguns.
>>
>>283843335
400 raw every time. Elemental damage is calculated by a percentage on the body part, like head takes 30%, it doesn't add a flat 200 damage to the raw.

For anyone having trouble getting used to the C-Stick:

It's not a tiny analog stick. You don't tilt it from the center to use it. Think of it as a tiny little dpad that has a pencil eraser on it. If you want to move the camera up, press down on the upper portion of it. You shouldn't be applying too much lateral force.

If you go into the options screen in 4U from the main menu there is a calibration screen where you can see how it works more clearly. Though you press on it like a dpad, it is capable of a full 360 degrees of motion. Is it as good as if they would have just cloned the left stick? Nah, but there's limited room on the N3DS so there's not really a good way they could have done that without making all of the controls all cockeyed. Once you figure it out (and it loosens up a bit with use) it becomes very efficient and I find it very comfortable.

So for G rank farming, is there still specific rooms set up online like in MH3U ?

as in I can search rooms specifically hunting 1 monster over and over? or is that gone? It better still be there, it's just more efficient (assuming everyone is good) to mass farm a specific monster for rare materials at G rank in a group as opposed to solo.

The c-stick is where it is because Nintendo abused a loop in the circuits to make it work.

No. Wrong. Stop. Element is only good as a supplement to raw, not a an instead of. If you're trying to find something good against multiple monsters, you're better off using a weapon with no element whatsoever, either that or poison. Just use whatever has the highest raw and best sharpness. In that example, Sword B would win out every single time against every monster ever forever.

Monsters don't come in impartials. They're either immune or slightly less resistant.

First, you have to get deep into damage calculations. Know that element values are actually bloated by 10x, and that raw values are bloated differently dependent on the weapon. Let's take Greatswords. They have a class multiplier of 4.8 on their raw to bloat their stats.

So Greatsword (A) with 769 raw and 600 dragon, and after dividing by 4.8 goes down to 160.2 and 60.
A greatsword (B) on the other hand has 820 raw with no element whatsoever and goes down to 170.

The bread and butter of greatswords is their charge attacks. Level 3 in particular. This has a motion value of 110 and an element value of 200, meaning that you do 110% of your raw value and 2x the element, so on a Level 3 charge, these greatswords will get:

A: 176.2 Raw, 120 Dragon
B: 187 Raw

However, since endgame dictates usage of the Crit Draw skill for critical hits on draw attacks (1.25x raw)...

A: 220.3R/120D
B: 233.8R

Now let's take two monster hitzones. Rathalos is a good example.
Head: 75% Cutting raw, 35% dragon
A: 165R/42D
B:175R

Greatsword A is better here. But elsewhere...
Stomach: 44%R/10%D
A: 97R/12D
B: 103R

Still good. That said, if the element were lower on (A) or the raw higher on (B) then (B) would win out.

It really is a case by case basis. On anything that has no dragon values whatsoever though, B would win out completely every time.

How do I into Gunlance? I want to use it because I want an excuse to rock the Seltas armor, but I only have been using HH so far and have been rocking the boring as shit Velociprey set. I've completed the tutorial but I have no idea how this weapon seems to work. It's so fucking slow to walk around in and you only have pew pew and stabstabstab. Can somebody give me the real lowdown? Killing a fucking Jaggi doesn't mean I know jack shit.

This game is nothing like Dark Souls at all except for you feeling the weight of a weapon. That's it. And no lock-on I guess.

>>283851689
There are passing similarities to dark souls in the combat, in that your weapons are slow and deliberate, but that's about it.

You will find that the first quarter of the game is pretty easy, to ease players into the swing of things. High Rank is when it stops treating you like a kid, and G-Rank is when the gloves come off proper.

You should have watched videos before you just up and bought the game. It isn't for everyone, and while there is some overlap between the DS and MH fanbases, it is nowhere close to guaranteed that you will like MH.

You really should have tried the demo first.

You also have to take into consideration your Gunlance type in order to maximise your damage efficency.
Normal type has shit shelling/charged shelling but has 5 shots, making it's Full Burst utterly ridiculous, It's Wyvern's Fire is also decent albeit average in range(and thus hits on the enemy).
Long Type has 3 shots but has stronger shelling/charged shelling and longer range on it's shells, but it's full burst is weaker overall compared to Normal-type. It's Wyvern's fire is FUCKING RIDICULOUS and hits hard even at a distance.
Wide type has only 2 shells but they have a big multiplier to their damage and they hit in a wider area. Charging them makes them ridunkulous, however Full Burst is shit, and Wyvern's fire is the same as Normal type.

I just crafted myself a Vavoom SA (the Kecha one). Thing is, now I'm feeling kind of torn about the SA. I like that, in most cases, it's pretty much a more mobile LS, but at the same time, it feels a little barebones. I see LS users talk about how they have to place themselves for GOTCHA BITCH moments, I see Lancers talk about how there's a lot of evasion and careful precision involved, then there's even the SnSers who are all about mobility. Then there's the SA and it's like "I hit it until I need to stop to roll away/heal/whet, then I got back and hit it some more. Sometimes I hit it in a different mode."

Do I need to git gud with the SA? Is there something I'm missing?

Same, doesn't help that high rank village has you hunting the same shit you just fought and monsters from freedom unite MULTIPLE TIMES (Rathians and khezu everyfuckingwhere) which also do do unfair damage unless you give up and build a set that you will ditch right after the slog.

I just gave up with seltas queen again, it's tedious and disgusting. If you bother to kill seltas the queen literally runs around and is untouchable until another one comes along.

Honestly might even stop playing altogether. The terrain gimmick was nice but it FORCES you to play flowchart style for 30 minutes to avoid unavoidable terrain-based carting.

Greatsword main from FU (completed the damn game) and now GS does FUCK ALL for damage without all the end game buffs. Hitboxes are still shit (seltas queen takes the fucking cake.) and monsters still take off half your health just by moving forward making you have to just hit feet until it dies over 30 minutes every time until g-rank.

I think I'm done with this series.

I used switchaxe heavily in 3U, and it's just an aggressive type of weapon, sort of like Dual Swords, except instead of managing your stamina you manage your phial. Axe mode is for hitting precisely, breaking hard to reach parts and such, and sword mode is just LET 'EM RIP mode.

See, Hammer is all about positioning, though. You gotta hit it in the head and sometimes that takes some finagling and clever movement.

Other thread just died so I'm going to post this here.

>>283852914
Okay, doing some stopwatch shenanigans here. Don't expect it to be super accurate, but...

At full stamina, you can chop 9 times with the Hack 'n' Slash over a period of 6.5 seconds. That's 216 motion value. Let's add another 57 for finishing with the finishing swing, so it's 273.

Meanwhile, with the Side Slash -> Doublecut -> (Repeat) combo in sword mode, you can do side slash three times and doublecut two in that same amount of time. That's 203 motion value. Let's add one more doublecut (64) for the same amount of time as the axe mode finishing swing. 267. With power phial, 320.4. That doublecut really is doing sword mode good shit, although I get the feeling that this would trip about as bad as the hack 'n' slash, if not worse.

Hm. Something tells me that we might be seeing LS-tier overhauls of the phial mechanic over the course of the next few generations.
>>
Reminder that Guild Sweetheart is the cutest.
>>
>>283855957
The Hammer might 'openly' require good positioning but to effectively play SA or CB you still have to position yourself well. There is a huge difference between someone just doing single attack spam and someone who reliably cuts tails and lands X+A combos with SA.

No, dude.

SA is to tail as Hammer is to head. Same basic concepts, different parts. A swaxer or charge blader's first priority on any hunt is to get the tail off while others focus on the heads and precision strikes.

I'd also argue that SnS is the easiest weapon to play, but that's just me.

I didn't know bouncing attacks actually did damage

it's like a 3% drop in low

Because my weapon requires more skill and dedication than your weapon because it's mine and because my weapon requires more skill and dedication, I'm a better player and you're a fucking casual.

Captures don't factor in until G rank.

5% from carving, 8% from broken beak, 3% from broken back. Mount it twice, smash its face, then kill it.

What the hell were you using, yellow sharpness? There are only a few spots on his body that a green sharpness or better bounces off of. They're big spots, sure, but he's a fucking big monster.

NO ONE RESPONDED LAST TIME SO I'M GOING TO ASK UNTIL YOU ANSWER. NOW SPEAK UP FAGGOTS, WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE WEAPON THAT MAKES IT YOUR FAVORITE. I FUCKING LOVE DUAL SWORDS FOR THE EDGE, MANEUVERABILITY, TORNADO OF BLADES AND JUST IN GENERAL HOW IT GETS BETTER EVERY GAME. SLICING MONSTERS UP SENDING THEM TO THE GROUND OVER AND OVER AGAIN WHILE DODGING FUCKING EVERYTHING THEY THROW AT YOU IS THE BEST. NOW IT'S YOUR TURN. DECLARE YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR FAVORITE WEAPON WITH PRIDE

>cap doesn't matter until G rank

Then how am I getting drops in the wound/cap areas for monster pieces I know I didn't break?

3u and 4u bow user here. the bow is fine, i like poison coatings, and para, sleep only for high rank and better, but power coatings will be your main coating.
>>
>>283856979
I used Narga set with Narga HBG a lot in 3U
love how its gun sound
>>
>>283857442
Not him, but I bounce off only his tail with blue sharpness, though hitting his tail isn't too common unless you're trying to hit his head while he sits around.
>>
>>283857442
I'm using a GS relic I found that I upgraded and it's actually somewhat decent for LR (768 raw) but its problem is that it has about a sliver of green, ALL YELLOW and a sliver of orange. It's a PITA to keep sharpening that shit so I just yolo'd and bounced on him. Didn't think he'd die that quick.
>>
>>283857428
>Midnight Bow

unf.

Can we get Narga stuff in this game? I heard that there's Lunastra armor/weapons even though she's not in as well.
>>
>>283851049
if you can, have them time their charge attacks at the same time to the head, best option, or get the great sword into a spot where he can wail on the monster after it gets up with the hammer attacking the head.
>>
>>283857345
It doesn't?

And I see, it's a rare material, time to keep going I guess
>>
>>283857076
fucking garbage. Narga >>>> some dumb slut wearing it's skin

>>283857585
I like the Greatsword. It's literally a great sword.

>>283857502
Everyone wants to do Gore online, try finding a chill room.
or you can ask us to hunt with you. Your choice.

>Barroth
>Gigginox
>good

I'll give you Narga, but Barroth is just an icy version of Narga (with a less interesting moveset outside of desert), and Gigginox is a poor man's Khezu.

I for one am glad a lot of old monsters got to come back. A lot of people got ripped off when they took away the Teostra/Kushala/Chameleos set, not to mention Ukanlos, the 3 Fatalis species and Rajang.
>>
How the fuck hunting horn?
>>
>>283858058
he said barroth not barioth.

Gigginiggi should have had an appearance but not baleful.
>>
>>283850950
>does anybody even use a different coating

I can't believe this is a serious question, but I'll answer anyway in case you really are oblivious about this.

>Poison coating: If the monster is poisoned, your DPS will go up and some monsters like Khezu are extra weak to it
>Paralysis coating: If the monster can't move, a whole lot of options open themselves for you and your other hunter teammates
>Sleep coating: Sleep bombing a monster is glorious and some GR hunts will go a lot smoother if you do this
>>
Why dont we get this armor in 4U?

Are you good at iframe dodging, /v/? Or do you just dodge clear out of the way like a scrub?

>>283855331
To break his body.

Gravios is just annoying in general. Even back then.

But I don't care 'cause I love his armor.
>>
>>283858223

Because it's from Frontier perhaps?

>men look like mechas

I want my female hunter to look like a slimmer mecha.

>>283858237
Only if I have evasion +2.
And evade dist. up.
And a switch axe

Otherwise I run like a bitch.
>>
>>283858223
The bigger question is, why won't Capcom just give us Frontier G?

I can roll through the roars without evade, only the ones that let you though, some persist outside the regular i-frames, i can't do it perfectly, but i can do it.

Also rolling against hitboxes i've perfected. e.g. Rath tails

>>283858585
We got 4U and a fuckload of promotions for it, didn't we?
