pro transporter is what you want. Do the first shitty fucking egg quest and you should get some steel eggs, use those to make a couple pieces of Loc Lac. 2 should get you to +9 transporter and one gem should get it to 11. Remember to eat food for felyne lander and supercat.

I literally just fucking made my hunter, just now, in the lance tutorial, do two extended backhops in a row after the first regular one, and do you think I can get him to do it again after reading your post?

I don't understand. The first time, I held it back as normal. I remember in many hunts doing extended backhop chains multiple extremely vividly while I held the input back.

Why the fuck is it that I just did it, and now after reading your post, I can't anymore? Is reality rewriting itself here or am I just losing my fucking mind?
>>
>>284132597
Lagombi seems a lot harder in 4U than it did in 3U, though. Personally, I've gotten its new attack patterns down well enough for it to no longer be much of a threat, but my first Lagombi fight in 4U was a bit embarrassing.

Nigga, just do the offline quest with the break feelers sub. Break it's tail and carve it. If you don't get a tail, just restart. If you do, keep slappin him until he goes into frenzy. Once he does, mount him and that should be enough break it, letting you end via subquest. The tail should come off in 2 or so minutes on swaxe

>>284133828
>Does X+A stab attack do much dmg?
good for status ailment and also pretty fast in case you want to get quick damage in. It also helps you do an AED by pressing X+A after the stab.
>>
>>284133828
The explosion at the end does 80 (slightly more than a level 2 greatsword charge attack) but that's only if you mash A until it explodes.You can cancel straight into an explosion quickly by pressing back + x while mashing x, though it will only deal 50 damage

More or less just started and short of playing for 20minutes on one of the PSP games years ago I'm a complete noob at this.

Are Goldenfish automatically sold on quest completion or why did I not get any after fishing up a bunch? Not to be confused with Small Goldenfish, I got those in my inventory.
>>
>>284134450

you learn to face away from the monster and X+A. Brachy is good practice since it's easy to whack him in the face with it.

your most damaging attacks are your songs themselves, with the bonus that you don't waste time refreshing buffs if you land them. They will fuck you over hard if you're not greatsword-level psychic so you gotta git gud. Evasion skills help a LOT.
>>
>>284134575
>Are Goldenfish automatically sold on quest completion
yes
>>
>>284134575
It's an Account Item. Account Items are automatically sold.
>>
>>284134575
Goldfish are, Small Goldfish are not.
Goldfish are what's known as "account items". Items that are for zenny or village (in this case, Caravan) points that can be used in various ways.

Also, uh, veteran hunter here who actually welcomes new players to the fandom. Any newbies have any questions? I'd be totally cool with answering whatever you wanna know.

>>284134450
>I feel like I'm not moving at all
Maybe play White White.

There's no real combos. Any move can chain into just about any other.

X will swing from left to right when idle, or slam down when moving forward. Repeatedly tapping it will cycle between the two.

A will swing from right to left (and quite high, to boot) when idle, or when holding forward will do a two swing attack (you can dodge cancel before the second) where pressing another button before the second swing will cause it to play that note. Again, repeatedly tapping A will cycle between the two.

X+A will swing up and over your head and behind you, and will do a weaker superpound at will by holding forward. Again, will cycle. In terms of single hit damage, the X+As have probably got it the best there but they've also got significant wind up and odd placement.

The trick to using Hunting Horn is trick shots where you swing just from off to the side to smash the monster in the face from an angle they can't react at.

Recitals, particularly encores, also do a shit tonne of damage.

Basically it's an opportunist's weapon.

Charge Blade has wide reach on many of its more damaging attacks and combos, and so can trip up other players easily.

Also, SnS and Charge Blade are pretty much nothing alike in playstyle or pros/cons. SnS has superior mobility, strike speed, and doesn't need to enter another mode to reach maximum potential. There's also that it can fucking backhop, and also use items with the weapon unsheathed which is way more useful than it might initially sound, especially since it's pretty much the only weapon that can give you super armour during item usage.

Because of several reasons. Some valid, most stupid. Some fags are angry because of how strong it is. How dare a new weapon be powerful. Other, more valid claims are that it can be disruptive if people just go full ham with it and spam everywhere, knocking everyone away. If you're not retarded, you can control it and not disrupt your team. If you are retarded...I dunno, try DB.

He's definitely talking about reloading the philes in a Switch axe since the bar empties every time you swing in sword mode and then "RELOAD" appears next to it.

The charge blade doesn't have a stab attack on X+A. The Switch Axe does.

Certain parts, yeah. Can't cut tails, though. But that's what cutting cats and, to a lesser extent, boomerrangs are for. Some parts require impact damage to break, too. Like Barroth's ridge can't break without it.

I think in 20 kills or so, one let me carve it and actually get something from it and I don't think I did anything different. Should I use a different weapon?

SA was my main back in Tri. I was a fucking surgeon with that thing. I saved quite a few shitters from alatreon charges and Jho breath attacks with it's upward swing. It's just all the fuckwits who think SWING AXE HIT MONSTER is how you play it, then trip all the other hunters around them. There are people who are good at it, just like there are people who actually like playing and are good at Hunting Horn. It's rare, but it happens.

No, but I believe Seltas armour has you covered there. Razor Sharp + Artillery. Can't make the full set 'til the ass set of low rank, but you can drop some Artillery gems into the five slots available on Ceanataur armour.

You'll need Sunspire jewels and 10 ice crystals for five. You don't really gain access to the ice area until just over halfway through village low rank, but I believe if you're lucky you can trade caravan points for 'em to the Wycoon if you watch his inventory.

Actually CB is fine in groups, it's just the fact 50% of people online are using it.

Also it's complete unbalanced cheese. Even though I don't like it, I'll still admit it's a disgustingly good weapon even if you don't know what you're doing. Once you into guard points and knowing how to unload your phials properly (which isn't hard) it becomes god-mode.

I'm just a hipster with a grudge against bandwagons, plus I can't abandon my old mainstay weapons lance and HH.
>>
>>284137887
I can solo him fine. I would imagine most people could because of the practice from the demo.

Just saying it's infinitely easier and faster to just farm him online, because at least in my experience the group will get the horn break like 95% of the time.

Actually it was way better than you give it credit for. Really, aside from the changes to the combo structures, SA has only gotten weaker since its Tri incarnation. The singular exception, really, is the hack 'n' slash which has only gotten better.

Lemme map it out for you:

>Axe Overhead Chop
~Tri: 56
~3U: 48
~4U: 40

>Axe Upswing
~Tri: 38
~3U: 32
~4U: 40

Side chop and forward thrust are slightly weaker now by 1-3 points to boot.

>Sword Down Slash
~Tri: 34
~3U: 32
~4U: 30

>Sword Up Slash:
~Tri: 30
~3U: 28
~4U: 25

Side slash went from 22 in Tri/3U to 25 in 4U though, so there's that.
Oh, but the phial burst is quite a bit stronger than it used to be, so there's that.

I actually quite approve of the Sword Mode changes, but I think that nerfing axe mode's overhead chop and upswing was overdoing it a little bit.

Side slash doublecut repeat is pretty good. In fact, it's a little too good, I feel, in the wake of the overhead chop and upswing nerfs in axe mode. If they're going to reduce its power any further they damn well better increase its movement speed to compensate, or at least add a new move.

Honestly a part of me sees Doublecut getting nerfed slightly in MH5.

Play online.

Oooor farm Hermitaur for an easy set of HR armor if you're in it for the armor boost. Skills ain't bad either.

Some people recommend doing arena to try out new weapons.

I would rather suggest farming the fuck out of Gary Magaloo online and make a couple of his weapons you'd like to try, then keep playing online while trying them out.

Trying new weapons solo can be frustrating because you're guaranteed to fuck up.

What weapon do you use now? What are you interested in?

I did GL and Hammer in 3U. Doing Lance and HH, two weapons I use to think I would hate but love now.

I basically attack based on my distance from his front, directly under his head to one horn width away I do X+A backswings all day, farther than that and I tag him in the face with side swipes. The double note swing can be hard to land both hits on the head since they swing at two different angles

Why do people try to defend that gunning isn't easier than melee?

You're safe from about 95% of monster attacks. You'll never have to worry about 360 spin attacks or swipes.

>>284139873
>EVERYTHING had a slight raw nerf anyway.
No, this is false. Most weapons did not get raw nerfs. In fact, in many cases some saw raw increases, or new moves with better raw values than anything they had prior. SnS, Longsword, Lance, Hammer, Hunting Horn.

In fact, the most significant change I can find, aside from the Switch Axe, is that Greatsword dropped the multipliers on its charge attacks in favour of just straight motion values. Instead of 100x1.3 for Standard LV3, it's just 110.

The only real way I could see what you're saying as being applicable is if overall, the true raw values on weapons don't go as high as they used to, but that's not the case - in fact, values on heavy weapons go up into fucking 1600s with great fucking sharpness and either good, or extremely negligibly bad affinity.

>>284139579
Math, son. Take a weapon's true raw, and then do the proper damage output math, then apply it to a monster and see how many times it'll it take that particular attack to kill it.

Those "minor numerical changes" are pretty fucking significant. The overhead chop is 87% as strong as it used to be, and upswing a little bit less, but even diluted with a move in the middle there's still going to be a noticeable different in hunt times.

The rebalancing of sword mode moves made sense, since it was dumb that one combo was used completely over the other. Doublecut on the other hand made sword mode way stronger overall, whereas before they'd achieved a nice balance in 3U where you could almost use either form equally. I mean, I still do, but there's that part of me now that's nagging me for not just doing side slash doublecut repeat for maximum damage output at all times.

Advantage of range, but only bow has the advantage of movement. HBG and LBG sacrifice their ability to move while attacking, especially with rapid fire or siege mode which can easily lock you into place.

And many monsters do have ranged attacks or quick, charging attacks. Ranged weapons might be easier against some monsters, but not necessarily against some others.
