>least favorite monster
>least favorite music
Favourite : Either the Gypceros or the Rathalos.
Least : That fucking laser veam spouting faggot that i'll find 5 times a hunterrank.
Favourite Music : A. Steppe Rathian theme
Least : Idle town music.
Also, why is yian garuga so OP? It wasn't this hard in freedom unite
anyone find a good balance for aiming with bowguns? they fucked it up. everytime you switch between perpectives, it goes back to that perspectives neutural position so my position on the x axis is always fucjed when i move around and try to quickshoot. man they reaaaally fucked up guns again. ever since Tri, theyre always fucking with guns in some way or another. yeesh
I can't even complain about S. Zinogre's gem without 4chan thinking my post is spam. Both MH4U and this website have forsaken me.
That shit is zero fun
So much damage and any time it brushes against thats like 20% of your health
I never used Gunner weapons, but I randomly did the HBG training and fell in love. I think I have the basics down, but I have no idea what weapon to make.
I can currently craft: Peerless, Bone Buster, Monodevilcaster, Tigrex Howl, Pressurized Plaser, Ner Bustergun, Queen's Longfire (and I guess I do have the default one to upgrade).
Which one should I make?
>Normies hating on my hunter rank and g-rank
Normies are so mean
Can't pick between Gore and Shagaru, but they're top two for sure.
>least favourite monster
Fucking Gravios and Black Gravios, but Cephadrome gets an honorable mention.
Zinogre's theme or the bit that plays when monsters go frenzied.
>least favourite music
Favorite is probably Rathalos. A classic and a man.
I don't have a least but Gravios is just annoying.
Favorite music is Zinogre fight. Brachy is next.
Least is Khezu since lol no music.
Favorite weapon is Great Sword, then Lance, then Insect Glaive.
Hit G rank today solo. Game has been pretty straight forward so far. Hopefully the real challenge is ahead.. And not artifical with apex only monsters one shooting you in full G armor.
>rushing to end game content without finishing everything else first
No anon, you are the normie
I'm just sad about how mean normies are!
>Not doing the REAL content like g-rank first
Rathalos is my nigga. Though Najarala is pretty fucking cool too.
>least favorite monster
Deviljho. Fuck off.
>least favorite music
Val's hub music was nice but got pretty repetitive and annoying 30 hours in.
to start with i really recommend the rathian line of guns. it can fire a bit of everything and very reliable power and low recoil overall. it has no deviation either which is always great
>HR frenzied Brachy
Worst fucking monster, and frenzy makes absolutely everything worse, and RIGHT as I trigger my Wystone the faggot starts parading around, running away and jumping like a bitch.
>have attack up Wystone
>activate it and contact frenzy at the same time
>wystone runs out in the middle of an attack
>next attack gets rid of virus
I'm not mad at all.
I still can't beat that fight. It seems literally impossible to get enough hits in without being blown up.
And Seregios being around makes it worse, because of his fucking needle shots stunlocking me THREE TIMES
>Seregios shows up
This has gone on long enough. The fucker showed up EVERY TIME I mounted S. Zinogre, ruining my chances for big damage after mounts with his fucking roar.
3U fag here, is there something I'm doing wrong?
I'm doing the save moga village quest where you fend off that elder dragon. I managed to weaken it enough to get into the ruins, used the dragonator twice, and even broke off a horn like the game kept telling me too, and I still managed to time out. What the fuck am I doing wrong.
Pic related after 5 attempts.
What is the best armor in the game, and why is it Kirin Z?
>dodge everyday with evasion 2 and constitution 1
>even more elemental bonuses due to ice up
>10 goddamn slots to put in anything else you could possibly want
I dare you to find a better armor set.
Is the insect glave OP as shit or something? When I use GS, monsters tend to be a bit of a challenge, but every time I switch to my upgraded glave, I destroy niggas.
Also, did they make tails harder to hack off in this game? I remember cleaving tails with a few good GS hits, not it seems to take forever.
I thought the glaive was OP when I was in low-rank, but after hitting high rank and things started speeding it up backed down to the same level as every other weapon.
At least for me that's how it worked.
It's OP if you can consistently get your triple buff.
I'm shit at getting juices though. My kinsect never fucking gets the color I want, even when I get desperate enough to pheromone mark the part I want juice from.
>dicking around in HR1 online
>join a room, someone wants to do urgent
>he dies, second guy dies, while they take 30 fucking minutes to return to the room I get greedy and also die

>host starts tripping me on purpose
>he does it again
>tell him to stop doing that
>third mission does it again
Well fuck that shit. He was generally a useless cunt anyway, it was mostly the new guy and me doing all the work.
>Akantor or Tigrex
>Teostra or Pink Rathian
>Ancestral Steppes theme, which is sad since you rarely get to hear it. MH3U had a much better soundtrack, frankly
Khezu Bobobo here, the Gravios huntan last night was fun as shit. Sorry I had to bail so soon. I was touched when somebody called me Bobobro. Thanks anons, sorry I couldn't thank you earlier when I left.
FUCK the desire sensor.
Anyhow, if you're persistent, his HR armor isn't bad. I dunno what his G-Rank is like, but he gives you Dragon Atk +1, Unscathed, Evasion +1, and Focus. Not bad for GS users, and pretty good for SA users.
>not Shagaru Magala or Ancestral Steppe
I thought we left the hacks back in vanilla MH4.
If you're looking for a 3DS in general then I'd say go for it. It's got a lot of cool games even outside of MH. Then give the demo a go, cause you're gonna want to try it out first. It's not for everyone.
just got to G1
I'm using greatsword and currently wearing the gloaming high rank set.
My skills right now are:
Critical Eye +1
what is a good early grank set to replace this set with? I'd like to S+1 soon, and rock steady really isnt as good as it was in 3u
>third guy mounts
>I'm using a bow so still shooting the monster
Regardless of whether or not you're using a bow, you still could've interrupted the mount with your attacks. Even IG users trying to get buffs can cause mounts to fail
>I don't really have a least favorite, but a lot of the music is just "okay".
Then maybe you should practice evading hits or just farm some high rank armor. Or maybe both at once.
Sharp+1, Guard +2, AuS (because I could squeeze it in)
Apparently, there's a perfect path to take when upgrading the kinsects on an IG. Playing with it, it seems like everything except speed buffing is useless, but I'm told levelling power gives you an extender on your extract buffs.
So, how exactly should I be going about this?
>least favorite monster
Black Gravios and tigrex
>least favorite music
I need more forge
Also what do they call her in japanese? What does she call you? senpai or onii-chan?
Get your shit together bro, Garuga is piss easy.
It runs after you then you delay roll so you don't get pecked turn around get on its right leg and
hit it till it dies, don't get hit, repeat.
I never got hit by that tail whip or sideswipe the telegraphs are waaaaaaaaaay too big.
>Kirin and Barioth both have good looking LR/HR designs
>G Rank designs are boring as fuck with long coats and look nothing like the LR/HR variants
Why is this allowed?
no, it's just hard to make it show up in the forging options. I'm not sure if it's worth using though. It's hardly got any white and I already have power phial axes for most relevant elements. a pure raw one seems stupid and boring
>gets multiple rusted lances
now to go down the other path
>people who do not know the "secret" algorithm to get the right weapons and armors with rustshards
>people who cry about gypceros

>people that try to be "heroic" but just end fucking the hunts
Jeez, /mhg/. I hope you guys don't do this.
Haha whoops! Three carted again! Even when I stay near his legs my rolls literally 70% of the time send me straight into his followup attacks because his attacks don't have him stand in once place!
So far, I only just got to HR
Anything ending in -blos

I usually hate those who repeat a post/thread all over again. But for some reason I actually like you.
I would feel weird if we ever have a MH thread withou you.
keep it up, man
>that build you made somewhat out of frustration is actually really good
>and also looks good
Then you and him just have to be a tad more aggressive in your playstyle if you're getting ~20 minute hunts in high rank, because that is kinda slow.
Unless you are new to MH.
G3 Gogmazios Urgent, help a nigga out:
Well, I saved this from an earlier thread today:
Well, you have options:
>SnS or Bow with sleep attribute/coating (plus materials to do more coatings)
>Bombardier skill on armor to make things faster
>2x Large barrel bombs+ and a handful of small barrel bombs plus materials to combine more of them during the quest (don't forget to bring the combo manuals for improved combining chances)
>Hit it until it sleeps
>Put LBB+ near its chest and a small barrel bomb a bit further away from them (if you put too close, then the 3x damage bonus will go to the SBB instead of the LBB+)
>Repeat 2 more times and he's dead
>Bow with Lvl 3 Pierce/HBG with plenty of Pierce shot capacity
>Shoot him on the head (so the arrow keeps hitting until it reaches the tail) or in the tip of one of the wings
>Spread shot Gunlance, any shot level (higher is better)
>Bombardier skill and, if possible, Guard Up
>Stay in between his legs and shell his stomach until he dies
Is it worth making Gore's GS? It has affinity, dragon element and a slot but the dragon value isn't all that great and the affinity in that weapon line will be almost worthless as soon as I make it to Diablos' armor
You realize his belly is weak? And it's not difficult to break his back. Try using traps and bombing, or mounting, or hitting on it till it breaks. Are you really mad that every fight isn't the exact same?
Why do all Gog's have a giant spear stuck on their back?
Is there a trick to the gore m. urgent? I feel like I'm getting one-shotted left and right even when I'm doing pretty well...
get a good armor, I used a velociprey one and it didn't do much damage
then DO NOT STAND ON THE BLACK CIRCLES, when you get virus and get inside those your hp flies away
and finally abuse of the ship, the front arrow and the canons makes enough damage you almost have no need to use your weapon on it
at the point in the game that I'm at there isn't much better I can do for myself
and it gives me a reason to go at Gore some more, that's an awesome fightbut that affinity value just seems like a red herring for less knowledgeable players to me considering the ubiquity of Crit Draw for GS users
Gore is easy peasy. Start the fight by strafing and hitting his tail. You can hide under him and attack from there if you're feeling ballsy, most of his attacks can't hit you there. When he frenzies, that's when you gotta change your gameplan. Mounting and then wailing on his feelers is great. Otherwise keep your distance and punish his attacks by hitting his feelers. He's got a huge danger zone in front of him when he's frenzied, so hitting his head is the priority.
>needing materials from a basarios
I need two shells and i need to do all of this shit. The monster isn't even hard. Fuck this shit.
use the defensive Wystone
eat for defense up L
use an hammer with water element (I used the seltas one)
stay close to Brachy, if you stay away it's actually worse since he'll charge at you
that's how I beat him at least.
I'm gonna be farming a few Gypceros in HR4, but I'm HR5 and will be down for whatever when I get muh four rubbery hide+ I need.
Anyone wanna join because they need Gyps mats or just wanna hunt?
How the hell do I get rid of a trap? Why can you only use one trap at a time? I'm right next to a sleeping Rathalos but can't lay a trap next to it because I already used one in a different area. Is there something I'm missing?
the red cross flashes are critical hits, yes.
It looks like every hit you do is a critical hit because if the first hit in a combo is critical every successive hit will be too (same thing for negative crits) and dual blades have long multi hit moves.
If you've just fought Gore then it's definitely a good weapon. The Tetsucabra one beats it in raw, but it lacks the sharpness and affinity. Schattenstolz actually gets white sharpness with sharpness +1, which is nuts in low rank.
It used to be Narga, but Zamtrios has taken my heart.
>least favorite monster
>least favorite music
Khezus, I like all of them to an extent.
Also anyone else get fucked over by the Palico's 10 case name-limit?
Can't even name it after my waifu with a cat pun properly.
o? I must've typed it incorrectly, sorry.
GH ID : 55-8604-1731-9946

Anyway, anyone who wants to hunt Gyps/do some HR4-5 missions feel free to join
>Want to make Gore Magala set cause fuck it why not
>Can't get a plate to make last piece
>Can't force myself to move on without it
>Know it's just going to get replaced soon anyway
Tired of fighting him.
Did anyone make the LR nargacuga set? How the fuck do I get a Wyvern gem and pearl hide? I thought maybe the Khezu gives me pearl hide, but I only get flabby hide.
1*-5* and 7* all have gold checks, 6* has a silver check because some of the quests refuse to unlock. Am I supposed to go online and do some of those quests before more 6* will unlock?

>mind crushing 21 minutes to kill a high rank azure rathalos later and I can finally quit this lobby

Where the hell can you find Scatterfish? I got a Palico that can put monsters to sleep, but I can't take advantage of it because ho-hum, Scatterfish are rarer than the Umbrage I'm still hunting for.
Is the double gore armor worth it? It gets awesome skills but it has a huge fire weakness.
Can I gem it out without missing good skills or do I just have to deal with it?
I don't think it's worth it, after all each hit doesn't do much damage and criticals are just a 25% boost I think. Elemental Crit and Status Crit are better since Dual Blades are already good at doing elemental and status damage. But I think those are G rank armor skills.
>Calico Briggs doesnt fit
Its the greeting text on guild cards thats too short.
There are people in this thread...
people... that .. RIGHT NOW... are NOT.. I repeat, they are NOT using the dex..
How does that make you feel?

This is some extreme bullshit. He has 90% airtime and can combo into fireball from anything. Why the fuck does the fireball have both windpress and a glancing hit?
>people in high rank with 150 armor rating
that are not gunners
Hey I know how everyone feels about LS in multiplayer.
But is it pretty good for soloing? I'm thinking of getting this rathalos blade to finish up my low hrs and caravans
Man I fucking hate Rathalos since generation 3
Remember him in MHFU?
>stuns for days
>GS lvl 3 charges for days
>easy as fuck abusable patterns
>tail runs done in 2 minutes
>ruby farming actually fun
I mean, I like that he's more challenging now but I can't deal with the obnoxious asshole they transformed poor Rathalos into
>mfw everytime I fight one
>you can make the argosy captain's set
>it gives a skill for dirty fencing
So the starter pack can only be used for one save file, will this be the only way to make those mario and luigi outfits? What about the next free dlc, can that only be used for one save file?
>tfw my felyne set a trap and for some reason I thought that meant he knew it was a good time to tranq
>I currently only have one tranq left
New player, but how do I git gud at the camera controls? The framing feels too zoomed-in for me to really see the big monsters without needing to adjust the camera constantly, and even then, I'm afraid to take my hand off the dodge button in case I might get hit. It'd be fine if I could increase the camera speed, but I couldn't find a setting for it. Is there something I'm just missing?
Capcom said that there will be free DLC quests in the future to let you craft the Mario/Luigi sets. Mostly because the starter pack only gave you enough super mushrooms to make Mario or Luigi's stuff.
H-Bowgun user here, trying the Bow out for now. Are you able to actually destroy body parts with the bow? So far I only managed to cut off tails with the CC-Coating, but breaking stuff seems impossible.
>That doujin where Lagiacrus rapes Rathalos and then becomes Lagi's slut
leave the camera lock on on the touch screen, usually you only change camera on small stuff (virtual pad or the new 3ds stick) or harvesting, on big monsters the best thing is to lock on and keep using L to center on it
>Need one more Chilling Beak to finish off my armor set
>Snakefag won't drop it, no matter how many times I break his head.
Being moderately happy the first time I got it triggered the sensor.
Barioth. He was my first wall (I started with Tri), and remained an intense fight even after I learned how to deal with him. I also used his set in HR all the way up until I crafted my Jho armor.
If you just meant MH4U, then Kecha Wacha. He's a cutie and he's the only monster who doesn't seem eternally angry. He's just swinging around enjoying life and spitting on niggas. Very well designed.
>Least favourite monster
Fucking Gypceros. The cunt is just annoying as fuck. He never stops fucking moving. He's not challenging or fun to fight and he spends the entire battle running from one side of the room to the other. It's like charging attack -> charging poison spitting attack -> stop to tail whip > repeat. The only time he fucking stands still is when he's stopping to stun you with his obnoxious flash.
He's not difficult, he doesn't require any thought, and he drags the boring ass fight out with all the constant sprinting off into the distance or running up walls.
How do I guard point? I've just been kind of getting lucky and having it happen every once in a while, but I wanna git gucci.
>need a gore mantle
>chaotic gore doesn't drop them, only his own shit
>have to get a normal gore out of the fucking everwood
Everwood exclusive monsters is the dumbest fucking thing
Yeah, that works most of the time, but there are times when it doesn't work, like with how the Rathalos' auto-target swings to his legs and not his face when he's in the air. I need to readjust then just to see all of him.
Chameleos theme/Teostra theme
>have 5+ gem for monsters i will never make the weapons or armor for
>never get gems for monsters I'm grinding for
fucking desire sensor bullshit
So I don't own a 3DS at all, how big is the difference between MH4U on the 3DS and the N3DS? Is it worth the price difference?
I've been trying to avoid hitting people with my LS but you get so few chances to execute the R combo during some fights so sometimes I just don't care if anyone is in my way.
I think my friends have made it a habit to get out of my way when we're pounding a downed enemy.
Two questions: where do I get more poop, and how do I unlock the high rank version of the forest?
The C-Stick helps a lot, but if you have a circle pad pro, the only real difference is the faster loading times (which do add up, since they're decently long). As far as I know, though, the old regular and XL models have been phased out at most major retailers, so the new versions will be the same price anyway.
There is no normal gore magala quest at G rank, besides the final caravan quest that's a five monster marathon
>even when gore finally shows up in the everwood you can only get the carve and break rewards from it
>it probably won't give you a guild quest to hunt another, so you'll have to wait for another one to appear

I'll probably never upgrade this kirin glaive either

Well my luck is forever gone, but I did it.
so can you unlock g-level quests in caravan without ever actually getting to g-rank in gathering hall? That'd be pretty cool actually.
I'm about to fight 10* molten tigrex, wondering if I have much further to go. I'm only HR6 in gathering hall stuff.
Exactly like >>285220949 except for items I have Mega Potion/Whetstone/Wystone/Paintball
I currently use a GS but was thinking of making a secondary weapon to mix things up, what weapon type do you guys think i should go for?

Don't listen to this anon. Pheromones are incredibly useful as long as you use them as a guiding post for your bug. Like, if you know your bug will pass through a part you need to get to the marking, it can be useful for circumventing high up monsters.
Anyone have some tips for HBG?
I'm getting into HR with Hammer and want to practice up with some LR gunning before progressing through the game so that I can sub it for online.
I'm using Tigrex Howl and it's pretty powerful but I'm having trouble doing consistent damage and killing the monster in a reasonable time because I'm dodging so damn much.
Lance satisfies some of my urges. Nothing beats the GS though.
It's ok. I can work the camera or something while she works on that monster dick.
Frenzied Ash Kecha Wacha
Tigrex & Brute Tigrex
Chaotic Gore Magala
I doubt it.
Capcom said they only ported it to WiiU because that gave it online play.
Personally, though, I'd buy it a second time for the WiiU just so I can play on my big TV with the god tier pro controller.
I really want this to happen, but I just don't know what to expect from Capcom anymore.
I'm personally trying to hold off on buying it for now, since I'm not totally convinced it won't get a port, but I really want to fugging play it.
I bought it while owning the old 3DS (Yoshi edition too mothafucka) and after the first two quests (not even a hunt quest either) I said NOPE. And bought myself the new 3DS.
It's so much more enjoyable with the Cnub, buy a circle pad pro if you're holding out on a new 3DS at least.
Bruh I have at least 1 weapon in every category upgraded to the most it can at this point and I'm already G Rank
Maybe if you weren't so shit you'd be able to handle multiple weapons
