BTW how important is elemental damage to switch axes?BrunoBRS
It's pretty important compared to the hammer and GS. You may not need to worry about elemental advantage if you're using a swaxe with high raw and power phial, but the additional power given from elemental damage can shorten a hunt by a few minutes.

well, i'll stick to picking elemental advantages then. i'm just trying to think of a way to have bow and switch axe complementing each other when i play by myself, rather than having their functions overlap, and bows depend a lot on elemental damage.

Very rare. 1-2% chance of getting it in carves and quest rewards.

#406 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
HAAAAAAAAAAALP! i decided that i want to make a barioth gunner set and an ice bow. problem is, i can't decide if i should go for the barioth bow (high raw but low elemental) or the ice arko nulo (low raw but high elemental). keep in mind the barioth armor has ice attack up as one of the skills, and that i'm really ever gonna use this bow when ice is the enemy's main weakness.

I don't have the U version yet. Although it would make it alot easier with others. I'm getting sick of fighting him but I'm determined to get that gem. I'm up to 21 now.

And if anyone knows, would I get a better chance in hunting with 3 carves or capturing? I was never sure how capturing worked with rewards. Regarding the gem, is it 2% for the capturing or 2% for each additional reward?

Why can't I beat Lagiacrus dammit!

He always kills me once he gets into Rage mode. Almost everytime i've gotten stunned and then he charges me to death.

really? save for my first time fighting that plant-uragaan (duranbogos or something like that), i haven't had a battle last more than 30 minutes with anyone, not even the lagiacrus. most end up around 20m. it's worth noting that back in the original tri, i failed to capture the lagiacrus because i ran out of time >.>

I played Monster Hunter Tri online on the Wii at a friends. Not sure if it was the online mode or not, but I found the game very sluggish and the controls to be poor. Gamespot and other reviews describe the WiiU version as "more accessable" and the online "much improved". Reckon I should get it on WiiU? Or is it just not for me? (I'm a big fan of action games with silky smooth controls like Bayonneta btw)

the controls are sluggish, yes, but that's because the game isn't a hack'n'slash. they're like that for a good reason, and it doesn't take much to get used to it. the game is more accessible in that the early fights are much easier, so there's a better learning curve than "fighting small monsters that die in 3 hits" -> "spending an hour fighting a great jaggi"

Thanks for the reply. I could get used to a slower more realistic pace I reckon. Do you know how the online is compared to the Wii version? Any specific improvements, or is it the overall upgrade all WiiU games got (no more friend codes,etc)
#414 Posted by CcJj09 (15268 posts) -

In some ways the online is better and in some ways they made it worse imo.

Its way easier to chat now with the gamepad touch screen or its built in voice chat. Don't remember if Tri's online had a search feature, but its a bit easier to find rooms. Also they have a different online port than the one in Tri (could be good or bad depending on if you liked the old one I guess).

For the bad, I don't remember if it was like this in Tri, but if the room creator leaves then everyone left in the room gets kicked offline (which is annoying). Also in Tri you had the ability to see if people in the room were on a quest by checking out the quest board. Now it doesn't give you any info and you have to ask when you get in a room if they are on one or not (which isn't that troublesome, but still).

Also not soley an online issue but just something with the game in general, but they took away the sub quests :(. They probably did that because there is much more content now with all these new monsters and subspecies, but I still miss em.

i can't comment on the online, as i'm playing the 3DS version, but lemme go on a bit further on the "sluggishness". it all boils down to compromise. when you attack a monster, you're compromising yourself to that attack. you're saying "this is the right time to do it, and the right position to do it". you have to know the monster and know when and how and for how long you want to attack, and which attacks to use as well. there's weight to your attack, you can't just cancel out of it whenever you feel like, if you attack at the wrong time, you must endure the punish window, much like a fighting game. also much like a fighting game, you can skip the final "frames" of the attack animation by rolling, which is extremely useful to get some quick attacks in and then running out of range. another thing that's important to notice is that you will be slower while holding most weapons, so putting a weapon away isn't just something you do when you want to use an item, or move from area to area. the greatsword is especially slow, GS users put the weapon away as soon as they're done attacking (or they use rolls to move around, instead of walking, but that comes at the cost of stamina).
#416 Posted by locopatho (20238 posts) -
Thanks guys. Yeah I'll add to my "wish list". So far it's Mario and Monster Hunter :P I'll get a WiiU when it gets to 10 games or new Zelda releases, whichever comes first :D

Maybe i'm just being too reckless. That tends to happen when you keep dying. :P

Or maybe I should upgrade my armour a bit.

Or maybe I should upgrade my armour a bit.

i was using a half assed upgrade of a wroggi armor (upgraded at least twice everything, but didn't have enough armor sphere+ to upgrade everything more), and a peco switch axe. take whatever conclusions you want :P i'm just shocked by my difference in performance with the switch axe. i'm not sure if it's monster nerfing or what, but even the rathalos and the barioth went down in less than 20 minutes without any deaths. i got comboed once or twice so far, once against the lagiacrus (took like 3 lightning balls to the face in a row) and once against the rathalos. survived (barely) both times. do you have the food health upgrades already? i always mix bread and milk for the defense buff, and i have 2 stars in each, so +40HP too. the food skills are rarely worth anything, but the bonuses themselves make up for it.
#419 Posted by TheBlackKnight3 (1586 posts) -

I went a pretty good upgrade path for armour: Started with leather>Barroth>Diablos>Pink Rathian>Brachydios. I haven't finished my Brachy set because of gems, but I don't really consider it an upgrade from Pink Rathian, it only has about 20 more defense at the level of armor I am at. My weapons have been lacking, but I just got the Amber Slash Barioth Axe and the Dios Axe, so I should be fine for a while. Two things I've noticed: The innate 50 armor your character has is very useful, and a lot of armors and weapons require materials one HR higher than they should.... like Brachydios armor is rank 4, but it requires Agnaktor+ items, which should be rank 5 (I think).

#420 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
yay for having to pray for low drop items to, you know, drop.
#421 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Yay, Lagiacrus has been slayed!

Now i've gotta deal with a certain tail spinning maniac...

I was not expecting to be hit by an aerial body slam. :P

#422 Posted by aroxx_ab (9488 posts) -

Wow Zinogre's pathing is very hard to learn. he jumping around all over the place... i only beat him cuz use lots of healing :(

the plant uragaan? yeah, he's weird.
#424 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Actually, he kinda reminds me of Barroth. :P

#425 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -

Actually, he kinda reminds me of Barroth. :P

moltenix

he's a hybrid. his shape reminds me of ura, his main attack is like ura's chin, but in his ass, and he digs around like barroth. there's supposedly a way to mine his back, but i couldn't pull it off.

 

but then again, i'm too busy trying to complete my rathalos set so i can make a barioth set more easily so i can make my ice bow so i can kill diablos. stupid 3% drop rate.

#426 Posted by dobzilian (2490 posts) -
Hey Dudes. I'm stuck with no more missions on single player for some reason like Caedus (sp) missions. They arent showing on up.
#427 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
so it turns out i might be better off getting rathian fraulds instead of rathalos :/

Did you finish the village request to make the ancient mask? When you do that, you find the mask behind the waterfall in the farm.

There's a few quests you have to do for the Chief's son that involve making new masks for Cha Cha and his friend.

#430 Posted by svaubel (2458 posts) -

Aye, if you want help with the Village quests look on Monster Hunter wiki. Beware of spoilers though.

I was wondering for the free hunting mode, when can you start to pick between day and night? Once the high rank quests are unlocked?

#431 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
today was a big day for me. finished my rathalos blademaster armor set. started and finished my barioth gunner armor set. made my ice arko nulo. now i just need a charm that either gives evasion, or has a free slot, and i'll be set.

does it have a slot? that would allow me to boost my ice attack as well :P but we face several issues, one of which being the game's restriction, the other being that, you know, i don't have a wii u :P

Pfft. Who needs the Wii U version? Everyone knows that the original 3DS version is superior in every way~

loljk I want a Wii U now :(

#435 Posted by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

So I finally bucked under the pressure of not having any good games on wiiu and bought MHU a few days ago. I bagged on the demo for sucking pretty bad, but I do have to say that there is a solid game in here once you have the whole game. It's pretty fun trying to bring down these huge monsters and playing the gear hoarder! So I admit it, it's a pretty darn good game, just a bit crusty around the edges. 

Just killed my first Gobul, such a long battle!

I'm convinced the last urgent quest in the village is a G rank quest. Suddenly they are pulling heavy hits on me and I.Lagiacrus took forever to die. Guess I'll wait until I finish with G rank when I get the U version. In the meantime, back to Brachydios...

I'm totally down to give it a shot. Everytime I try to find an online game I come up empty. Perhaps we could get a game going. I'm still low level mostly.

I'm on the East coast

I managed to kill it in 10 minutes with the Wyvern Blade "Flame" LS and Attack Up Large. I did end up using most of my potions. Its attacks were absolutely brutal.

I had bomb boost so I used slime dual blades and bombs, although I forgot to bring the large barrels to resupply so I managed to use 5 Large+ bombs on him. Still, it took me near 25 mins (it may have taken me less if I could find that dam gem and upgrade my swords). I was especially careful because of his unpredictable shock fields which does harsh damage. Took him down, and noticed Brachydios was doing similiar damage. So I called it quits. Wait until I'm over G rank.

You have to break his beard before he reaches the end of Area 2. So focus your attacks on the beard.

Not sure in Tri version you just needed do enough dmg to him
