anyone has a bow suggestion? i'm going for the ludroth gunner set, since it has the stamina skill (and looks nice). i'll be using the bow mostly on multiplayer, so keep that in mind.

can some one tell me if the high rank, g rank, and low rank armors all have different skills? and if any of them can be upgraded to the next level or not like in tri. for easyer clairifaction, say low rank leather armor can up grade it to have the same rarity as high rank armor with the same def but different skill points.

i can't confirm, but i'm willing to bet that high rank is, like in tri, an upgraded version of low rank (same skills with better numbers and possibly with new skills), and that G rank follows the same pattern. i also doubt you can upgrade a low rank armor to high rank, since it would cut the farming considerably, which is the opposite of what MH is about.

in MHtri you could do that just need materials to do it from high rank monsters. because in tri I wore cudues+ top and armors and upgraded low ranks of the legs and waist and had the skills HG earplugs and sharpness+1 with none of the down side effects. and I used the helm and charms to add a third skill with no downsides. I am wondering if this level of combination will be present in this game.

In tri, the high rank version of the armor would not have the same skills as its lower counterpart. Usually they have at least one same skill but other than that, they are different. And you can upgrade your low rank armour to high rank after you fully upgraded but you will need to farm more materials, so it's essentially like forging a new set of armor. After that, they will have the same defenses as their higher rank counterpart, just with the different skills.

who uses bombs by the way? I keep using the bombs after setting traps and also against monsters in the water. I noticed if you time it correctly against enemies like Lagi you can keep stunning him every time he goes to roar and attack with the ones which propel them in water. I found this really useful as i just kept on stunning him while my team battered him for the first several minutes.

I agree with you that bombs are very useful when used correctly in a group, but in most pug groups they will ignore that you are planting bombs and they will strike making it explode and doing damage to the whole group. For me the best time to plant bombs is to make the monster fall asleep and everyone plants their bombs and then boom so much damage done.

I'm a bomb fanatic when it comes to Alatreon. Bounce bomb the wings, sleep bombing the horns, use Uragaan armour to boost my bombing damage, and carrying all the necessities to make more bombs. That is why I'm stocking up on so many staggerfish, but I realized that you can buy them in a market at the port. So many wasted boat trips.

Outside of bombing horns and other hard surfaced body parts, I see no point in bombing unless you're carrying a sleep weapon.

I love to call them torpedoes and say fire tube one! fire tube two! lol yeah it dos the same thing in tri, and bombs are fun if the whole group is on the same page. if you just want to break its horns then focus on the rest of the monster.

Call me the mad Bomber Lol I love using bombs lol I'll set bombs right in front of the monsters mouth and attack it right there, of course since I'm a lancer, I can block in time to not catch the explosion whilst being right in the midst of it lol it's a great joy

If anyone wants to add me its CcJj09. I just started playing online so I'm only HR1 atm. Its been awhile since I've played online in Tri Wii, so I forget if you just have to complete all the quests at your current HR level to go up a rank.

can anyone tell me if each arrow from spread and rapid shots does full damage, or if the "extras" only deal partial damage? can't seem to find that information anywhere. i know the charges affect the damage, and the distance affects it too, but i'm curious about what firing multiple arrows means to the damage of each arrow. so far it seems that pierce > spread > rapid. pierce just deals full damage multiple times per hit, which is awesome, especially when you land that perfect head-to-tail shot, and spread has that shotgun effect that's still effective against larger monsters from a distance, but rapid? it just seems odd to have an arrow that has follow-up arrows that most likely miss the target.

I've been wondering the same and I also couldn't find a specific answer. I did learn some stuff from the Bow page of the MH Wiki, like damage outputs, but it didn't mention anything about the extra arrows dealing partial or full damage.

yeah i read the whole thing. i've been more cautious about my shots (and minding my distance) since. the barroth went really smoothly with my ludroth bow. smaller monsters might prove to be a pain, since it's harder to pierce them multiple times.

Snarf is my fave monster atm lol i finaly figured out how to do a never ending button combo with LSs which took me ages but i now know why hunting horns and duel swords are awsome :D.... i like hunting horns becuase there just a awsome buff wepon, and the duel sword well i like the weapon set of the knife and fork makes it look like your eating the monsters.

My hatred for the smaller monsters has increased by 10000000x ever since I decided to only use bow. Calling them "****ing annoying" would be the understatement of the decade.

In my opinion I believe Diablos took the biggest nerf in MH3U. In tri if he dug down everyone would of put their weapon away and run in case Diablos picked them and launched himself at them killing most.

Yeah, many armors were nerfed in Ultimate to evenly distribute the skills to all the new armor sets. Vangis Armor now has Razor Sharp instead of Sharpness +1. :cry:

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