    Default Monster Hunter

    This is for those who play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U and/or 3DS and Monster Hunter 4 on the 3DS (I envy you those who do). So, let's have a discussion regarding them!

    For Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate:

    • What's your favorite monster to hunt in the game?
    • What armor do you use?
    • What monster do you hate to fight the most?



    For Monster Hunter 4:

    • How do you feel regarding the new game mechanics and does it make Monster Hunter better or worse?
    • How is the difficulty within the game compared to the older ones in the series?
    • What old monsters are you happy about returning?

    Personally, I love to fight the Royal Ludroth. I don't know why, I just like fighting it and then cutting off it's tail. <3

    I use a full set of Lagiacrus armor, along with a Lagiacrus Great Sword. The blue looks beautiful.

    I loved monster hunter 3 Ultimate, though I actually never even played that much of it. I got the demo and loved it, and then tried my friends game of it. Very fun. I just dont have the money for it lol.

    I don't really remember any of those things extremely specifically, but IK that I used Dual Swords mostly. The The shift axe or hammer or something was awesome too.

    I played a lot of monster hunter 3 ultimate myself, though I have not for awhile now. I got to g rank and now it's quite difficult to do alone and the guy I usually play this with is always busy. That and I did get a tad burned out on it.

    For Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate:

    What's your favorite monster to hunt in the game?
    Brachy, or Barroth, Nibelsnarf. :>
    What armor do you use?
    Depends on the situation, I have a few different sets to choose from on my main.
    What monster do you hate to fight the most?
    Gobul. He's not hard, but I still hate him.



    For Monster Hunter 4:

    How do you feel regarding the new game mechanics and does it make Monster Hunter better or worse?
    I'm not sure, I've only ever touched MH3 before. But it looks pretty awesome, so I'm praying it gets a North American release!

    What's your favorite monster to hunt in the game?
    -Lagiacrus, Zinogre, and Brachydios

    What armor do you use?
    -Typically the Helios set

    What monster do you hate to fight the most?
    -Crimson Quropeco, mostly because it loves summoning the Deviljho and make killing it even harder.

    I can't say much about 4 yet since I haven't been keeping up with the news about it, but from the videos I've seen I'm looking forward to playing it hopefully soon.


    It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!

    Good news indeed. Makes sense it's a while away, as we'd be getting the (a) upgraded version off the bat, and there's a lot of translation work to be done, judging by MH3:U.

    - There really is no monster I love to fight. I only hate
    - Currently Purple Ludroth armor because Dat Marathon Runner
    - I absolutely hate Rathians. They are impossible. They are the sole reason I'm confined to 6* missions

    I also use the hunting horn and breastfeed in case you wanted to know

    Are you playing on the Wii U version or 3DS version? If on the Wii U, I could help you beat the Rathian once and for all.

    What's your favorite monster to hunt in the game?
    Brachydios-I love beating this thing to death >
    Stygian Zinogre- I have a love hate relationship with, So many emeralds and so many battles......... Fun fight though.

    What armor do you use?
    Stygian Zinogre's armor or the pumpkin one(F version). I switch between the two.

    What monster do you hate to fight the most?
    Alatreon, Deviljho, Lucent Nargacuga.... I'm not really sure which I hate the most outta these three. Alatreon-I've only killed twice, mostly due to bad parties. Deviljho-It will not stop eating me. Lucent Nargacuga-farming this critter's rare stuff isn't fun, see Alatreon for reason...

    As for MH4 I can't wait to play it, not a big fan of the unicorns but I can skim over them. I just wish that it didn't take so long to localize them.

    Been playing a lot of MH now after a fairly long break, just before uni starts up again for myself.

    Atm in HR7, and beat all but the very last story mode quest. That arena quest with an Ivory Lagi, followed by a Brachy and Azure Rathalos at the same time... @_@

    I use longswords (at least rn), so I have Edel's Ice (maxxed out ice sword), and trying to get to HR8 so I can continue with a fire one. Also got a (awaken) poison Naga sword and Brachy slime sword to upgrade as well. Not sure what armour set I should go for next, got G-rank Jaggi and Rath Heart at the moment.

    It doesn't help that they are all G rank strength.

    Narga Z armour is really nice if you dodge a lot.

    Ah, I thought they might have been. Luckily the Rathalos and Brachy hurt each other a bit as well, so I just kept running about with dash juices, sneaking in hits when I could and dropping barrel bombs about, and then playing it defensively when the Brachy was raging (it's annoying enough without an Azure Rathalos trying to kill you at the same time too ;_.

    @ Narga Z armour I might check that out, given the number I'll have to kill to max out that sword. It has a slot and purple sharpness on top of poison, just a shame I'll have to gem for Awaken too.

    I havent played 3U in quite a while now. I guess I lost motivation to play after beating it, but i still had a few things to do like beat the end game mons. I stopped at G rank silver rathalos which i found to be the hardest monster to battle in the whole game. Funny because rathalos and azure los are one of the easiest monsters for me to kill even at G rank they were stupid easy. I think my issue is that it literally never stops attacking, leaving me with very few openings. This leads me to eventually get comboed to hell or not being able to kill him on time (I've never ran out of time against him though cuz I get bored and end up dying earlier).

    I've only used the fully upgraded ceadeus lance with Azure los armour against him. Does anyone have any tips on how to beat him? (solo, 3ds)
    I claim Larvitar!

    I don't know if you're against slime or not, but it makes just about everything a lot easier and should speed up the fight. Brachydios isn't too hard to farm for the weapons if you don't have them already.

    I have a fully upgraded Dios Axe which I havent used against him yet. The no-shield thing will probably get me murdered though. I've been playing a new female character this time to get accustomed to the game again (played recently and realised I became terrible) I'll probably play until end of low rank village, which should be enough retraining.

    I find that the extra mobility from not using a shield really helps with a monster as agile as silver los. The only attack I can think of that a shield really helps with is his fireballs, but unless you get flinched into one, they're generally pretty easy to avoid.

    I main GS and Lance and the only time I would recommend Lancing a Rathalos is if you're in a group. You'll get nudged too much and the area is too big to effectively solo Silver Rathalos with a Lance. You'd be better served with another weapon.

    One thing that I noticed a lot against all of the final G rank monster subspecies is that the switchaxe's year-long sheathing animation is when I get hit the most. I guess it's something to get used to because I'm not planning on using quick sheathe.

    Anyway, managed to take down Goldian, though it took 35 minutes. I did kinda stay away when it was enraged but I feel like it took much longer than it should've.

    This game is the best game that I have ever played. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's announcement was one of the only things that actually made me go insane with happiness. Only 1 year to go.....

    Sheathing, for me, is like an art: you need the timing to make sure you don't get hit. I use SAs a lot and getting hit during sheathing animations rarely happen to me.
