54 and I'm about to fight Brachydios. I haven't even touched multiplayer yet. I was just focusing on upgrading all 6 of my dual swords weapons.

Oh noooo vangis was one of my favorite sets, but maybe now they made Alatreon set armor good?aroxx_ab

We will have to wait for G-Rank to get Vangis with a default Sharpness +1 skill. :\
Alatreon's set is pretty much the same as the one from Tri.

I spent waaaaaay too much time trying to get a Lagiacrus plate in low rank. :P

Wow, and the game has only been out for 264 hours.

What/where is the most efficient place to farm Carptenterbugs?

I think I need some Killer Beetles too.

#356 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4764 posts) -
I found most of my Carpenterbugs in D.Island and Sandy Plains. Killer Beetles in Flooded Forest and Volcano.
#357 Posted by moltenix (2487 posts) -

Are there any maps out there showing the resource locations for each region?

Are they pretty much the same locations as in Tri or did they move some locations around? I could always just use a map from Tri if its pretty much the same.

Edit: Nevermind. Found everything I needed to know on the MH Wikia. :D

I'm liking the new species. Purp Ludroth, new specie of barrioth and pink rathalos all fun to fight. My team got PWNED by pink Rathalos right at the end of the battle.... Bad times.

I have one question before purchasing:

I know that the game isn't much like the demo because the game focuses on crafting and progression and lot more. But in the demo I find myself whacking a monster with a sword for about 15 minutes, and still it's not dying. Is this like the full game? 

#360 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4764 posts) -
Yeah. Monsters take a while to die and you don't get any indication of how much health it has until it's very weak (limping).
#361 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
been practicing with the bow. i'd like to have a peco bow for the fire attacks, but i'm too lazy to farm flintstones, and since i can already hunt the lagiacrus, i might as well wait for a rathalos. i should check the trees for the switch axe and bow.

Oh dear god, pink rathalos is BAD A$$, he put up a real challenge to me. I go through full stack of antidote to beat him lol

#363 Posted by thetravman (3521 posts) -

I'm convinced to get the Mosgharl armour however it's going to be a long and annoying grind. I think I need 24 bumblepunkins which, by my knowledge, you can only get by trading 5 star commodities in the village. I got 10 and keeping a lookout on the forecast (any monster at night above rathian is 5 star quality). Annoying thing is that I sometimes get nothing. However capturing them sometimes gives me more than 1 commodity.

Depending on your gear and skill against a particular monster, it can take a lot longer to kill some monsters. Maximum time to complete a quest (for most quests) is 50 minutes though.

#365 Posted by moltenix (2487 posts) -

For those with the 3DS version, how do you manage the underwater fights? Any tips?

Fought Gobul for the first time in 3U last night and got destroyed. I wound up killing it but it was a grueling process. Then again, I never really liked fighting Gobul but that was such an embarassing fight.

The camera controls using the L button and touchscreen D-pad on the ground work well. Still feels very awkward underwater in the heat of battle though.

We was doing awesome our party was with 3x Long Sword users and I using my Sword and Shield. It got annoyed when we chopped off its tail and blew fire up our àsses and decimated the 3 Long Sword users in one fowl swoop while i was pansying behind my shield lol.

I recommend farming those flintstones. The peco bow is the best fire bow before Dire Miralis becomes available.

Like Bruno, I have minimal problems with the camera when I have the monster targeted. It feels pretty natural to me now. I started to fully adapt to the underwater camera while farming for lagiacrus materials.

#369 Posted by dobzilian (2490 posts) -
heres a question. I'm always broke so how are you guys making that dough? I had like 50 Godbugs and sold 20 of them and a large amount of rathian scales so i sold quite lot of those. Any better ways to make some decent money?

Hmm, maybe i'm just bad at fighting Gobul then. I never really liked him or his armor. :P

I'll be fighting Lagi next so hopefully things go better.

you sure? i'm looking at arko nulo (R) and it has 140 fire damage and 5% affinity, not to mention pierce lv3 at 3 charges and a focus arc shot. and the yellow one is insane. 300 lightning.

Hey guys, need some help.

I keep getting the 0612 error code when I try to join a game online in MH3U. I can host my own room but no one joins. I can play arena, etc but no one joins me. I get this 0612 error a lot on my 3DS with MK7. I can fix it by sometimes resetting my router but it often comes back within 30 minutes of this reset.

I have a password with a capital letter, numbers, etc. I don't have my 3DS/Wii U set up in DMZ but I've heard mixed results on this. I did not have this issue however at my brother-in-law's house with his NetGear router. I'm using Belkin.

Any tips? I've had Nintendo try to fix the issue in the past by virtually taking control of my PC but they couldn't even fix it. Suggestions? I really want to get in on some online Monster Hunting.

Arku Nulo (R) is pretty good at first, but it doesn't compare with the peco bow when upgraded. Pierce will be most useful for Lagiacrus, but not for the smaller monsters weak to fire.
The Arku (Y) line is amazing and (W) is an awesome ice bow for Jhen Mohran.

I've been making large amounts by obtaining eggs and jewels from the ships. Crown+jewel racks up a decent amount.

well here's the thing, i already get fire damage from my switch axe. i'm not even sure why i want a fire bow.

I have not really money problems, most because i don't make gear so frequency.

In Wii version "Monster hunter Tri", best money way was the event quest "poached wyvern eggs", gave about 20-60k+ . Not sure if that quest is in Ultimate tho.

Atm i do "Royal pain" quest (offline capture quest that take about 3min...) to get "Quality sponge" which i turn in for 1000 res!!!! and sell rest of the reward, that pretty good compared to free hunt big monsters which not always up that give 1000res.

Good is if you have the skill Capture master so you get more reward items from captures too:D

Later on money is not problem when you kinda sell all things you get from rewards but rare stuff.

Think i will try this on out. I get some cash behind me (got about 100k atm) but as soon as i start purchasing new gear as i'm bit of a gear-whore i end up spending all my money then end up being broke again. Good news is though i had my nephew here for the last several days so been allowing him to do all the farming and fighting the easier monsters. Ohhhhh and i'm in love with my spear and shield. I dont see no one using these babies online really or heard / seen anyone talking about them. Love chasing a monster when theyre limping away.

You'll need ice for Jhen, and maybe Alatreon. I know Zinogre is weak to ice as well.

aren't they weaker to dragon though?

 

and what about status, like paralysis/stun/whatever-have-you and poison? are they worth the investment?

#393 Posted by CcJj09 (15268 posts) -

Made it to HR 4 today! And I also got 2 Bracchidios gems out of it. 1 for the carve and 1 in the quest rewards. I remember from trying to get Gems from Rathian in the Wii version that they are extremely rare :P.

I have a paralysis hammer and I'd say its worth it. Its like having a free shock trap.

Sleep also seems usefull. Although when I've witnessed it happen online someone usually hits the monster and wakes it up before others can lay some bombs down.

Yeah I thought about making the armor with them since I got the hardest to get pieces, but it seems the only resistance you get from it is fire (which I already have with my Rathian armor). I'll have to look up what the skills do and see if they are any better though.

Jhen is a tiny bit more weaker to dragon, but dragon is hard to get early on. Alatreon is weakest to dragon in the air. On the ground, it is weakest to ice. Zinogre is weakest to ice. Oh, I almost forgot about Diablos. He's also weakest to ice.

Status weapons can be very useful, especially if you're sleep bombing a monster or poisoning Uragaan. I don't use them as much since I can dish out more damage using elemental weapons.

well i'm playing mostly solo, playing on the 3DS and all that (every few weekends i can get to play local MP with a friend), so i doubt group stuff is something i should worry about :P it's just that i want a new bow (and a new armor set for it), but nothing is really appealing to where i am right now (just killed that lizard/armadillo hybrid), so instead i upgraded my Ludroth bow as much as i can without needing high rank stuff, and upgraded my ludroth armor to keep me from getting one-shotted. meanwhile, on the switch axe front, my peco and lagia axes are both in pretty good shape (BTW how important is elemental damage to switch axes?), and i'm still wearing the wroggi set for the same reasons i'm still wearing the ludroth gunner set.

I've hunted and killed Brachydios 16 times and still no gem for armour set. His rage mode is so irritating.
