When was the last time you raged at a monster? Did any manage to really piss you off?

Also Charge Blade is the noob weapon for those who want to do well even without any skill just by mashing

Can someone explain how exactly weapons like Blood Cry work, that have status ailments on them? First I thought it dealt raw damage first, then dealt "Sleep" damage to their so called "ailment meter". But then I heard that the Sleep [number] is actually just raw bonus damage that also can cause Sleep status ailment? What?

From what I know it's basically like status weapons build up a hidden "meter" on the enemy monster with every attack you do and once it's full they become poisoned/paralyzed/go to sleep etc.

Every successive meter after the first takes longer and longer to fill I think.

And then it also depends on the monsters resistances. Some are easy to poison and take a lot of damage, others not at all etc.

You might have to start from scratch then.

The bottom one is clearly farther along but you can see how many points get wasted going into elements if you aren't using pure stats.

Your beetle should turn into a moth too. Spec in speed first and once you reach a comfortable level in speed, put it in power.

I'm not sure what the fuck Stamina is for.

Charge axe is probably the most complex weapon in the game, what.

I was scrubbing it up with CB, now I've started to learn its intricacies, but I still prefer the normal burst attacks compared to the one you get from charging shield and full charging again

I guess it feels like it does more when every hit of that combo is followed by an explosion

The shield charge super AED explosion is godly though

Still can't into guard points though, I can never use them effectively when I need them

I guess Charge Blade is the most difficult. It requires an incredible amount of skill, awarenss, tactical planning, coordination, patience and moving around.

That's why it's my favourite weapon. It's satisfying to hunt monsters with something that is not as brain-dead as GS and a Lance.

So anyway you can load up these phials and then buff your damage hard with them, also the shield will be as strong as the lance shield. I was thinking about how cool the GS charges are so this should have a mega high damage burst too..."
"Hey, calm down, that's enough for one weapon"

Yo guys! sorry to just jump in to whatever discussion you are having but I dont want to go to the general or make a new thread.

What is the concensus on weapons this time around? Mostly a solo player here, playing only with RL friends on occasion and wondering on what weapons are fun.

I liked the Hammer and Dual blades in 3U. Are they just as good as before? Planning on using them again.
Wanting to get in to a ranged weap this time too, any recommendations? Preferably one that is decent in solo, as before I found them better suited to coop.

But yeah, just made my characters and did the introduction before I needed to recharge my 3DS so trying to look up some shit before I get dug in.

Some weapons got the new, useful moves. Right now I'd say every single one of them is viable, most of them are fun (except SnS and Light Bowgun, but that was always the case).

Just don't use the fucking Charge Blade, shit is broken and should be balance patched because the damage and versatility are off the scale.

Sort of, the G version is sort of like a cross between GOTY version and an expansion pack. Just because it's the 'definitive' version doesn't mean everything is as polished as it needs to be.

anyways CB was utter shit in vanilla MH4, but in 4G it got taken to the other extreme, where it's amazing in unskilled hands and the slayer of worlds in skilled hands.

5th gen or next game will probably iron out the kinks though, personally I'd like to see them put more emphasis on skillful blocks.

I started MH3 a few days ago, half way through 3 star quests. It's weird, it's really, really, grindy, but at the same time it's quite rewarding.
I constantly feel like I'm going to get over it soon as it's just getting 'harder' to get new equipment, but somehow I'm becoming more accustomed to doing runs for resource points or potion reagents.

The difficulty is interesting as well, I'm definitely getting better but when a new big mob comes about, it's this weird hurdle, you've just become comfortable farming the last one, then this one comes around and fucks your shit for a little while.
I really admire the "preparation" between each hunt though. Sure it's a little annoying for EACH large quest, but it makes it so much easier and makes you feel like you've done really well.
I just hope I don't get too sick of grinding, I've unlocked a few things to help my potion making business, but always running around looking for specific drops and googling everything might become too much, I'm not sure yet.

I'm just surprised I'm still playing honestly.

Im not here to preach about using items as a crutch like /mhg/ would, but attributing bomb damage to the damage of your weapon isn't really logical since anyone can use them. Sure SnS can use them faster, but anyone can trap and bomb.

Using sleep weapon solo means you should be bringing barrel bombs. It's a pretty common strategy for DS and SnS users to bring a bunch.

Blood Cry is a pretty decent LS line since it gets a lot of sleep element. If you bring barrels then you can easily destroy any specific part or just drop them near the head and fuck shit up

I have noticed it with rathian sometimes. I forgive it since her tail is usually close to the ground though. Gravios' tail is so high up I can't hit it half the time even with my upward swings, there's no way his shit should be hitting you.

Gravios also has a bullshit hitbox on his hipcheck too. You can be standing to one side of him, while he hipchecks to the other side and still get hit.

It never gets old.

Though there is that odd occasion when you are fighting two monsters with one being Gyp. If you kill Gyp first you don't get a "1 monster left" message or any "quest complete". So you're just left standing there for while awkwardly trying to see if it's a corpse or not.

The chance for it to happen is there, but MH3U was really good with your minions not waking the monster up. There's a brief window from when sleep activates to when the monster can be woken up. It last long enough that your cats should finish their move up and then stop attacking.

Can someone explain charge blade to me because I really don't get it and I'm the kind of person who likes to understand something thoroughly before I try it out.

What I don't get is the whole phial thing, in particular the option to charge the shield. What I've gathered so far is once you have 5 phials, you can either

A) use them to turn your axe into a kind of gunlance, or

B) Charge your shield and make the axe more powerful, but lose the gunlance explosions

and why once you've done either you don't remain in axe mode 100% of the time to take advantage of the buff.

When I played 3 and 3U the rule for switch axe tended to be stay in axe mode and switch to sword for when you're going absolutely ham. But people seem to be switching between the forms at a whim and I really don't get it.

And while speaking of the Axe, is it better to blow whatever phials you have if you get the opportunity, or hang onto them to do a super/ultra? Is the Axe's X combo ever worth it? etc

You can charge up your shield with any number of phials (1-5). The higher the number, the longer the buff will last, 30 seconds per phial. The buff upgrades the shield from a GS block to a Lance block and adds a bit of extra damage to axe mode.

Phials can also be used in axe mode to add extra KO or elemental damage to the axe attacks. 1 phial per attack. You can also consume all phails and the shield buff to unleash a super one-hit attack and that attack will be stronger depending on how many phials you have filled.

When you attack stuff in sword and shield mode your phials will turn yellow and then red. they will not be filled until you hit a button combination to fill them and they turn white again, but full. If your phials are red but you dont phill them you will get "charged" and your attacks will bounce of the enemy. so u have to make sure you keep converting that energy or you get fucked.

Charge slash -> shield bash -> charge slash for quick red
Then immediately load phials into shield -> shield bash -> cancel AED, shield is now charged (also this is a guard point)
Charge slash with sword mode until at least yellow and load phials
Now focus on abusing guard points and counters, whilst keeping your phials loaded and shield boosted

So do you spend your phials on upgrading the shield, or do you use them to do KO damage?

Its not a choice between having phials and a boosted shield, you should have both at all times.

Garuga's a fucking asshole this time around. I very nearly got carted by low rank Garuga because he was chaining fireballs together and juggling me around the place.

Im aware of what you mean, I'm just saying that contributing the damage of an outside source that anyone can do to your weapon particularly doesn't make sense.

Do I have to complete all quests in a location before the story moves on? These egg quests are torture.

It's all about finding the right mission, like doing a Quru mission in Tri to fight Jho. In this case, it's the 4* Sootstone mission.

hunting horn to me feels incredibly mobile, especially since it's attacks swing in whichever direction you could possibly need

What the fuck is the spacing on the ultra burst? I cant consistently KO the monster with it. Do you want the final slam of the blade to hit the monster's head or do you want the lingering explosions which are a little farther forward to hit the head? I mean GH said that shit does like 700 KO so it should always knock out a monster, I just cant hit the damn head consistently.

Brachy is also hype, don't really like Gore

>>283953319
as a long time gunner since freedom i don't see how HBG is cheesy at all in FU. sure they are powerful and wreck shit with the right skills, and even trivialize some fights. but you mess up and you get your shit wreckt so you need to know what you're doing.

i also don't think everyone knows about keeping proper distance to maximize damage.

1. Always be boosted
2. Your shield burst and blocking with the shield while boosted count as using a phial explosion without using up a phial
3. Learn to guard point for more chances to attack and free phial bursts on the head
4. Axe mode is mostly for the super nuke when a window allows or for chaining the 2nd and/or third phial burst swings when the opening allows.

People switch between them because you're much more mobile and able to get hits in using sword mode, then they'll switch and use a phial burst or two in axe mode whenever they can. Someone with a status CB should be using a fuckload of shield bursts since you can use it after any normal sword swing

Velociprey is literally the best armor for lr and you can get it right away.
Make whatever you want until late high or g
Just get full sets and gem something useful don't play clown armor yet.

Whats the best weapon for someone who's not gud but wants to git gud but at the same time enjoy the game?
>>
>>283960229
you do both, first priority is to collect phials and boost up shield to get it running for 5 minutes. after that you can start using them for KO

I'm not sure if you can this time around, but in the first gens you could repeatedly hit this and it would break after a while.
>>
>>283959285
it depends really

sword mode is good for building up your phials but also good for getting in a few hits here and there

you can combo into axe mode, that does a good bit of damage and does great damage when boosted

your bread and butter though is the AED combo, but you can skip the smaller hits and go straight to big finisher by pressing X+A while in axe mode

you can also do X > X+A > X+A to attack once, shield bash, and then combo straight into super aed, it's the shiield charge combo but without the L to actually load the charge into the shield

K guys, rank all the weapons from best to worst

I think they dropped the cat pun ball this time. It was best in FU.

There's a big spot near his head that you can destroy and show a massive weak point. You can also break through the mane thing just behind it and get to other gathering points on his head. dunno if there's another weak spot over there
>>
>>283960532
git gud and make sure you are using explosive not elemental CB
>>
>>283960558

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. So basically you go Sword mode > 5 Phials > Upgrade Shield > Sword mode > 5 Phials > Switch to axe till the phials are used > Sword mode again?
>>
>>283960198
Honking horn. Free buffs. Can get rid of annoying shit like roars and wind pressure with their respective songs without getting armor for those skills. Wonky attacks that take getting used to but once you have it down slamming heads while facing backwards and KOing shit feels amazing.
>>
>>283960646
>Best
My favorite weapon
>Worst
Your favorite weapon

This is every list you'll see
>>
>>283960557
None. There are a variety of weapons so players can find what "clicks" them, also there are missions that let you try them all, why the fuck aren't you doing this?

2ND MH game but never used a range weapon and I want to spread out from SnS and GS.

Is gunlance viable for solo play?
Also are there any hidden combos or tactics I should know of?
>>
So I'm new to the series, just got to Harth. I'm enjoying myself so far and find I like the Longsword and S+S a lot.

Should I be finishing up all the quests in a set before I move on to the next one?
>>
>>283960557
somthing that you enjoy. dont worry about getting gud, it will come naturally as long as you dont get carried
>>
>>283960198
SnS, DB, and IG are the speediest weapons.
LS is also pretty quick, but not as much, and to a lesser extent Switch Axe and Hunting Horn(with its self improvement song) are too
>>
>>283960557
Literally any of them.
They're all easy to learn.
They're all good.
They're all fun in different ways.
The game starts you off with one of each weapon - try all of them and find the one you like best, then learn it as you go along. /v/ likes to pretend that their weapons are super complex, but the truth is they're not. A beginner can be fine with anything so long as they enjoy the weapon.

I'd enjoy CB if it wasn't so over the top MEGAMORPH flashy and if they toned down the numbers just a tiny bit

Oh well
