The initial idea was that you only got a theme when a monster "Saw" you. Khezu was the first creature with absolutely no sense of sight, and no form of eyes, so they chose to give it no song intentionally.

Plus it really boosts those horror show vibes the fucker gives off.

I used the Zinogre horns exclusively for most of 3U, because they were fucking guitars. At g-rank I only used the stygian one because it had awesome all-purpose songs.

Also after a few drinks I decided it would be a good idea to take on my first Seregios with the Hermitaur GS I made as soon as I hit high rank, and the Velociprey armor I made soon after. 15 minutes later it's captured. On to Zinogre!

Time to school all the kiddies in this thread.

Monster Hunter is the single deepest, most challenging, most skill-based game ever created. There is not a single other game in any genre that comes close to the level of skill Monster Hunter requires.

This is why Monster Hunter threads are the best, most intelligent threads on /v/. Only the smartest, brightest, and most patient people post in them. Essentially, the very best of humanity posts in them.

Conversely, the only people who don't like Monster Hunter clearly don't have the skills to handle its depth. It is too hardcore for them. That's okay though. Games like Halo exist for people like them. Monster Hunter fans are too good to hold grudges.

Because it's "powerful", considering all they know is supercharged attacks and nothing else. It's like how most shitters pick up GS at the start of the game under the impression it has "SUPAH HIGH DAMAGE!!!" without realizing what effort it takes to fully utilize said damage.

Is there any point to using the Grim Cat? I mean, it has a power phial and a paralysis effect, but its sharpness is absolute ass.

It's still decently popular but nowhere near what it was in 3U. I guess a lot of people have moved to Charge Blade. Personally I moved to Gunlance after getting bored as fuck of Switch Axe in 3U, but I still use Switch Axe when I want to cut tails and stuff. I think it's actually a lot more fun in 4U.

Anyway, Power Phials are still the best. Element Phials are viable now though. Everything else is still a shit.

Did Switch Axe get changed? Because it feels a lot more faster than I remember. It's way better, I might even make it my main again.

Element Phials are more viable now, but power phials are still the best.

Switch Axe got a few new moves, like the double chop in sword mode and the hack n slash finisher

So is the general idea with Sonic Bombs to use them when the monster tries to burrow? What about Flash Bombs?
>>
>>284260258
I use it because it's pretty fucking good at paralyzing, and unlike a para phial SA it doesn't sacrifice damage for para.

Just slap some Sharp Sword or Sharpness +1 on it and it's golden.
>>
>>284260368
Power got nerfed while element got buffed. Both are viable, so long as you pick your phials smartly. Abstain from whipping out an ice axe with an elemental phial against Zinogre, but go ahead and give Gravios a wet n' wild time if you want to.

They also depend on the monster. Some, like Khezu for an extreme example, are totally immune to flash bombs. Some, like Kut-Ku, are ridiculously susceptible to sonic bombs. Check your monster list and pay attention to the monster's anatomy to see which bomb is right for the monster.

Needed three Molten Tigrex fangs for Cheda Blade+. First fight, got zero and started thinking this was the beginning of a long and painful experience.

Pressing R during Hack 'n' Slash now does a finisher that lets you transform into Sword mode.

The bigger deal to me is the changes to Sword mode that actually make it significantly less fucking boring.
>>
>>284260940
Tap R during the infinite slash attack. You will do a roundswing similar to the Charge Blade's A+A attack, and you can top it off with a morph into sword mode. It looks pretty slick and does a ton of damage, try it out.

Boomerangs are useful when hunting with a bunch of other cutting weapons. Alone they are useless
>>
>>284261687

Sword still does the best damage outside of Hack 'n' Slash + Mega Dash Juice nonsense, but yeah.

More or less all of Sword mode's attacks are now worth using instead of just mashing XX forever. AX does the best DPS, XA is the old XX and is quick, safe, good for cutting tails, XXX is good for flowing into AX after switching from Axe mode, etc.

Axe mode is more or less the same but since you can now flow easily into Sword mode with a big, damaging attack out of the already-powerful Hack 'n' Slash you actually do the best damage by keeping up the mode switches and using both instead of staying in Sword mode all the time when you have meter.

And as a minor change that is nice but keeps throwing me off after 500 hours of 3U the meter is now actually accurate to exactly how much of your fucking phial is left.
