Title: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on February 09, 2010, 06:10:37 PM
UPDATE 2/20/2011 - Server/City Gate - Greed 4, Gate 27, City 27.  There are 4 Hunters per room.  Overflow will be set up as necessary.
UPDATE 4/23/2010 - The official friend ID code list for this game is here (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=31154).

IMPORTANT - To add a friend you must:

1) Both be online at the same time
2) Neither one of you can be in a quest

Use each player's Capcom ID (shown under your character's name on the character selection screen when you first go online) to search for them, instead of their name.  Then send them a Friend Request.


With the impending release of Monster Hunter Tri (April 4 or April 20, depending on whether or not you believe Gamestop or Amazon), I am officially founding the NWR Monster Hunter Club.

As the club's Chairman, I am looking for the following information:

1) Who is definitely planning on getting the game
2) What night(s) of the week would be amenable to the group for Monster Hunter Night

I want this club to be an ongoing entity, since Monster Hunter is much better when played with friends.

Capcom's Monster Hunter Tri teaser site is here (http://www.capcom.com/monster/).

The game's official NWR forum thread is here (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=22602).

Let's do this.

Unless the reviews come out HATING it, I'm definately game. I'm not a big loot gamer, but I do like the idea of killing dragons and dinosaurs with swords. The very idea that this could be an ongoing weekly thing with fellow NWR colleagues and forum-goers makes the game intensely compelling.

...Now I need Wii Speak.

Instead of telling me what nights will work, I'll say what won't: Every weekday before six p.m. Zachlaska time, Wednesday nights (podcast recording) and probably Saturday night.

Otherwise I'm pretty wide open.

I'm going to pick up the game, but it probably won't be at launch and I unfortunately won't be able to commit to any dates/times as the time I'm able to devote to gaming is sporadic and ever-changing.  :(

My schedule is CRAZY because I work, go to class, and have an internship. That will all change in May, so my opinion shouldn't really matter with this.

That being said, I can do Tuesday and Thursday nights after 6ish EST, and after 9 PM EST on Mondays and Wednesdays.

File me in the "maybe" pile. A nice community online game always sounds fun, but I know next-to-nothing about this game. I'm going to need to see some reviews and such first.

Post by: Stratos on February 10, 2010, 05:04:04 AM
I'm planning on either pre-ordering it or buying it the day of launch or shortly afterward.

The most surefire night for me is Tuesday since that is my day off. Anytime that day is good. I'm working to get another committed day off but prior attempts have not worked.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on February 10, 2010, 08:30:19 AM
Tuesday is looking good so far.  It also works for The Chairman.

Note that I'm not saying that Tuesdays will be the only day staffers will be online; I just want a common rallying day that everbody can count on.

All I have to lose are a pair of gift certificates from Christmas so I'll be grabbing this one. Just going from the online game play footage that's floating around on youtube I think I'll enjoy it.

As for online times...eh the later in the day you want to play the later in the week I'm available. Hopefully I'll land a better job before launch but if not I'm off Thursday - Saturday

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: vudu on February 10, 2010, 01:29:58 PM
Tuesday will not work for me.  In fact, it's the only day I can say with absolute certainly that I won't be available.  Also, Lost airs on Tuesday.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

I'm in this boat too, although probably leaning more towards a definate purchase than you are. I've only ever heard of the Monster Hunter Series when it was announced for Wii, and the concept sounds pretty damn cool, plus I'd like to enjoy more online gaming these days.

Unfortunately, I'm unsure of my work schedule... When I was hired for this new job back in November, I was under the impression I'd be working night shifts with only one day off a week by now. That hasn't happened, so I'm enjoying a cozey Mon-Fri "9-5" job. If the game were to be released today, I'd say Monday or Tuesdays would be the best time for me since the rest of the week I spend after work hours doing more personal social things, but again I can't really commit to anything right now.

Once the night schedule does kick in, It might end up being easier to to play games with the lot of you, seeing as a big chunk of NWR seems to be out to the West.

Think it's only pay to play in Japan. Made it free for the Western version.

Yes, it's free to play in the West. They already confirmed this.

I'm just glad they included WiiSpeak support for the Western releases.

Didn't you only play it for like a half hour?  Even so, you still probably have more experience with the series  than anyone else on the forums.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on February 12, 2010, 03:33:07 PM
No, I've put about 10 hours into it, IIRC.  Enough to kill several monsters and get to the quests where you have to round some people up to do them.

It's pretty cool, and I can see how people get into it.  I'd wait for the Wii version Zach, if only because you'll probably have more people to play with (unless you play with strangers online).  If you can find it cheap, you might want to check it out though.

Post by: Killer_Man_Jaro on February 13, 2010, 06:36:58 AM
To answer your first question, I plan on picking this up on launch day here in the UK, an unknown day in April. Of course, this is assuming it receives favourable reviews, which I'm sure it will (40/40 from Famitsu, for whatever that's worth nowadays).

Unfortunately, the nights convenient for me are mornings or afternoons for the vast majority of you. In which case, for everyone else's benefit, I would have to stay up into the early hours of the morning, something I can only afford to do on weekends. Long story short: Friday p.m. to Saturday a.m. and Saturday p.m. to Sunday a.m. (GMT, obviously) would be good for me.

Jolly good. Yeah, if a lot of people buy MHTri and we can establish regular meeting times once or twice a week, the replayability of the game will increase tenfold.

Agreed.  It really helps to play with a regular crew, so everybody knows what gear everybody has and are adept at playing a certain "role" in each fight.  Like one person is bait while another attacks, one person is in charge of laying the trap, etc.

You mean for online play?  That I just don't know.  My assumption is that Capcom will be running the servers for it, so I'm not sure how they'll split things up (if they do at all).
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on February 15, 2010, 11:05:49 PM
Yeah, the online play. If the North American version has Wii Speak support and the Japanese version doesn't, I would not be at all surprised if this game ended up being region-specific.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on February 16, 2010, 02:09:55 AM
Or you just might not be able to communicate with the games that don't have WiiSpeak. I'm rather shocked that the feature wasn't included in Japan. Feels like a no-brainer to me.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on February 21, 2010, 01:21:52 PM
I started playing MHFU again this week and I really like it.  It has the trappings of an MMORPG, but it's actually a modified version of a common MMORPG game mechanic: material gathering and crafting.  For those unfamiliar with how crafting typically works in MMOs, you perform certain tasks to get certain materials that allow you to create certain things.  MH is similar in structure, and here's how the gameplay basically works.

1) You accept a quest and enter a wilderness zone with a specified time limit (say, 60 minutes).
2) You kill a monster or monsters, or perform harvesting activities like mining ore, gathering herbs, catching bugs, etc.
3) Monster kills drop materials (e.g. Dragon Scales), and harvesting nets you different kinds of ore, plants, insects, etc.
4) When your quest is complete, you return to town and create new armor/weapons or augment your existing armor/weapons with the new materials.
5) Accept another quest and repeat.

This may sound simple (and repetitive), but there is a lot of depth within this basic formula.  Each type of monster has its own AI behavior, strengths, and weaknesses.  You're given very little in the way of hints on how to beat each beast, so there's a lot of "discovery" involved.  You also have the choice of killing a creature (drops normal materials) or tranquilizing it and trapping it (drops rare materials, but harder to accomplish because you need to know the monster's "tell", which indicates when it is weakened and therefore trappable).  And of course, the creation and augmentation of armor and weapons is a game unto itself.  Gathering rare materials and creating a bad-ass sword or chestplate is incredibly satisfying (the armor designs are excellent).

Layer on top of this the ability to play with three other people online and you have quite a package.  I haven't played with multiple hunters, but planning and executing strategies ("You go over there and attack, and when he flinches I'll hit him with the tranquilizer, then you lay the trap") would be awesome.  If you put the time in (there's a ton of reading if you want to learn about every monster), Monster Hunter is super-fun.  And while the camera control is goofy at first, it eventually becomes second nature.

After playing MHFU a little bit more, I'm super-hyped for Tri.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Neal on February 21, 2010, 01:39:32 PM
After reading what you just posted about MHFU, I'm getting pretty jazzed for Tri.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on February 21, 2010, 02:23:49 PM
Another cool resource is Capcom's...

Encyclopedia Gigantica (http://www.encyclopedia-gigantica.com/)

...which lists all of the monsters.  There are hundreds of them in MHFU, along with more than 400 missions.  I don't know what the numbers are like for Monster Hunter Tri, but I'm sure they'll be similar.  A cool wrinkle they've added to Tri is the ability to battle monsters underwater, which I'm sure will mean new types of armor and different types of gear/monster weaknesses and resistances to deal with.

In MHFU they also made soloing missions a little easier by allowing you to hire an NPC character (the cat-like Felynes) to help you.  In Tri you'll also be able to do this, but the Felynes have been replaced with little tribal guys called Cha-Cha.  Apparently the behavior of the Cha-Chas differ depending on what tribal masks they're wearing.

One good thing that Capcom is doing with Tri is having the beginning of the game (the first 10 hours or so) presented as an interactive tutorial that is played through organically.  In MHFU the first 10 hours of the game are kind of torturous, as you have to wade through a lot of menus and text-walls that describe the finer details of gameplay.  It can get very tedious for the impatient or uncommitted as it's all very "manual"; in Tri, the game should lead you along through various beginner-level quests and tasks, teaching you the basics of gameplay along the way.  As a player who has muddled his way through this initial learning exercise, the interactive tutorial will be incredibly helpful for those completely unfamiliar with the franchise.

The Shen-Moran online event is the one I'm the most psyched about. The players are on some sand-sailing ship in a desert attacking something that's bigger than the ship itself with canons, occasionally jumping onto its back to wail away at weak points.

By the way due to recent...stuff I may not be available around launch. If there's a TV around I'll be leveling up offline though.

That really does suck. It was my full intention to buy this at launch -- being the optimistic fool that I am, I didn't expect a region lock.

I'm really not sure what to do now. I still want to play Monster Hunter Tri, but it is my understanding that the game is best appreciated online. Well, I read a fair number of websites, but this is the only forum I regularly visit, and the majority of this site's readership is in the States. This forum is the one place where I kind of know people, the one place where I was planning to go to add friends and I'm not going to be able to play with hardly any of you. Bugger.

Well, you can play with anyone in the PAL region, right? So there is KDR, Plugabugz, Greg and a few others who are from parts of Europe as well, right? Perhaps you could start a 'Call to Arms' thread asking for interested Europeans to post and join up with you? You never know, I'm surprised every now and again at who is actually from Europe. Is Australia considered a different region from Europe even though they tend to get the same VC/WW releases?

Being Chairman means you should send one of your lackeys to get one for you.

On a side note there is a new way to get the demo sent to you:

I've got more demos to give out, so comment below asking anything you want about Monster Hunter Tri. If we answer it we'll send you a demo!

Just read this blog entry and reply and you may get one sent to you. (http://www.capcom-unity.com/snow_infernus/blog/2010/03/06/ironbeards_dangerous_guide_to_monster_hunting:_rathalos)

I went into GameStop today to (among other things) pick up the demo, and not only did the guy not make me preorder the game, he didn't even ask me if I wanted to preorder it.

I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but the instructions on the demo only show remote/nunchuk controls; please tell me it will let me use my Classic Controller Pro with the demo of a game built around it.

So I played the demo and I'm considering NOT buying the game now.

I'm sorry, but that demo disc looks like ASS.  There is no other way to say it. It isn't in progressive scan. It isn't true wide screen. It's just trashy looking.  Final Fantasy 12 is a better looking game and that hasn't really aged well.

I sincerely hope that the retail release looks a lot better than the demo build.  As it stands now I couldn't even make out which monsters were what half the time.  It was just a big grainy mess.

How LAZY can Capcom be?  First they're incapable of using the IR Pointer, next they prove the game is just a glorified PSP port with the same cutting-edge resolution.

Part of what makes me so mad about this game is that it's "stunning visuals" has been a point of emphasis in almost every preview for the game.

The nature of the demo suggests that solo play is of little value; a slow, lonely, grinding fest.  However, other than a generic "this is not the final product" disclaimer in the bootup sequence, there is apparently no effort to remind you or tease you of the game's full feature set, such as online multiplayer, towns/hunting grounds, and many more monsters.

I got excited when I saw this thread and the enthusiasm for actually setting up weekly times to play, until I saw the 4th page here.  Sounds like the demo turned people off of this idea?  Any club-related, demo-informed input from el senor chairman?


I played the demo about a week ago, took down the T-Rex guy just fine but still haven't beaten the goiter-ized avian necromancer.  Could see how multiplayer would be better, it's tough to chase down a monster when he's limping and can just fly away.  I didn't hate it though, thought balancing the timing of the dodging & attacking/item management felt old-school in a good way.  Would be better with 2.5 times the time limit and 4 times the players.  Was playing on a 4:3 TV without 480p, so I didn't see the graphical hitch in its giddy-up others of you saw.  Is it really that terrible looking?

It just seems like a weird choice for a demo disc. The best aspects of the game, the multiplayer and customization, aren't there; all you get is the combat, which sounds to me like the worst part of the game.

Half of the games I buy are with the hope of regular multiplayer happenings so I know what you mean. It's nice to have online now unlike buying party/multiplayer games a gen ago and half my friends not playing with me.

I got the demo and it's difficult.  What surprises me is that there isn't a whole lot of "teaching" to it.  Monster Hunter Freedom Unite eases you into gameplay over probably 7-10 hours by having you perform gathering quests and hunting quests against benign creatures, but the demo does none of that.

To those that have it, I'd suggest trying out some of the different weapons on the "grazing" creatures before you tackle Great Jaggi or the other guy.  They're tough, especially solo, since Jaggi can call in his posse of mini-Jaggis, and the other guy can call in other huge monsters (so that you're effectively fighting two bosses at once).  Not exactly a good way to introduce the game to beginners.

Although I am kind of worried about people's impressions of the demo (specifically that the game is difficult and hard to control), I'll still probably buy it anyway. I want to try out multiplayer since that's pretty much what the game is about, so the demo is useless to me. If I don't like it, I'll just sell it. Games tend to sell on eBay for $40 a few months after release, so if worse comes to worst, I'll just have paid $20 for a Classic Controller PRO and a one month rental of Monster Hunter Tri.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on March 17, 2010, 01:04:55 AM
I found Jaggi to be rather easy once I started to find the weapons that suited me.

As for that stupid bird I finally got him the other day by just bashing his brains in with the hammer. If the monsters he calls in get close just use the charged attack. Not sure about that one dragon-looking monster but Jaggi will bail on the bird if you damage him enough.

Post by: TheFleece on March 19, 2010, 05:04:53 PM
A few nights ago I tried the demo and took a jaggi down after a few tries. The controls were awkward mostly because of the remote nature of the remote and nunchuck. Then I downloaded the demo manual from the Monster Hunter site and I'm going to try it all over again with classic controls. I'll most likely pick it up because I like Shadow of the Colossus. I work crazy night hours but I'm free around Mondays and Thursdays, EST!

I felt ridiculous doing that with Conduit. But I found using any sort of headphones and placing the WiiSpeak near you works wonders. I don't even use the headphones anymore and just keep the mic near me and it does the job quite well.

And for what it's worth, I rarely curse online when playing. It's only 4 people at a time so you could easily ask anyone you play with to keep it G-Rated. It'll be no problem for me.

Well, half the reason I used the headphones was because I was temporarily living with my folks at the time and I didn't want to disturb people.

When I got my own place I got fed up with it dangling from my head and just set it close to me. It seems to work just as well that way. I think the key thing that helped was either using the headphones to block sound from your TV being picked up by the mic or moving it very close to you and away from the television for the same effect.

I would suggest playing offline for a few days.  I think that's what I'm going to do at first.

I'm not going to plan a formal club meet-up for tonight (since we won't all have the game), but next Tuesday the 27th should be our first set time.

How does next Tuesday strike everybody?

I pre-ordered from Amazon so it'll probably be about a week before I receive it.

I'll probably be available in the evening or night, so any of you late-night players should consider me if you want to go hunting at those times. However, I suspect that I am not going to be very good at this game, so please be patient with me.

There is no game friend code or need to obtain anyone's console number to add to your address book.  You can perform a search for any players name and then send a personal message to them with a request to add them to your in-game friend roster (note that you don't need to add anyone to your roster play with them).  So, as far as your friends in the forum, all you need to do is find out what their MH3 player name is and then you can search for them and send a message with a friend roster add request.

You can use the roster to see if your friend is online, their status, send a message or warp to the city they are in.  Pretty slick.

Lindy, Neal.. I've got you guys down to be added once I get home from work later this afternoon. 

I'm on there as "Racht". 

Add me when you guys get the chance.  Can't wait to go slaying some beasts with you guys.. I had way too much fun playing last night with two of my close friends.  I'll keep checking this thread, too, for any other staffers or people I recognize previously.

Oh, and Mop it up... no, it's not a bad thing.  Because the game ties a "Monster Hunter ID #" to your individual name, too.  You can search for someone through this number or just their name.  It's genius, actually.  So there could be multiple "Racht's" out there.. but mine will have a unique MH ID# attached to it.  All you gotta do is just message me in game to find out if it's me.  :)

Hmmm...

I can't find anyone listed here.  It looks like when you use Player Search, it won't find them unless they are actually online?  I tried Compose Message, but the only options are to send a message to the player's ID number or someone already on your friend roster. I don't see a way to send to a Player Name directly (unless you are already in a city with them and can use the chat log).

I think we should list our MH ID here as it's the only way to Compose a Message with invite to someone not already on your roster.  Your ID will be on the player select screen when you go online.

Quote
2) So this game doesn't use friend codes?

Actually, yes it does (contrary to what Capcom has been saying). For each
character you create it is assigned a unique 6 digit Capcom ID that you can
give to your friends to add you. Fortunately, getting other players' codes is
not required to play with other people online and is not required to use
Wiispeak. Unfortunately, character names are not unique, so expect to see a
zillion Greatsword users named some variation of Cloud Strife.

3) I hate voice chat/don't like Wiispeak, do I need to use it to play online?

No, you can use a keyboard, or you can use some pre-assigned messages.
Furthermore, you can mute other players who are really annoying you. Hooray!

4a) Is the online like PSP where I connect with other people ad-hoc?

No, the online system is actually that, online. You can do missions and play
with and talk to other people that you do not know and you have never met over
capcom's servers.

4b) How do I join other games online/meet other players?

Here's a nice video demonstrating the process in Japanese with tons of captioning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP2DaOkyFTQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP2DaOkyFTQ)

The brief explanation: you search for different game rooms, find a town with
other players in it that are doing what you want to do, and go into town. From
town you can suggest a mission to do on the mission board. If no one in the
town wants to do that mission, you can search for other players who want to do
that mission. Towns are limited to 4 players, but missions can only have a max
of 4 people. You can also create private game rooms and bring in your friends.

5) How do I add friends online?

There are a few ways. You can search for players by name or by code. Also, in
game you can look up a character's info and send them a friend request right
there in game.

Post by: NWR_Lindy on April 22, 2010, 09:43:26 PM
Yeah, I tried adding everybody last night and couldn't find anyone.  What's this Capcom ID that everybody's mentioning?  The only code I see is the "Capcom Support Code" on the Village/City selection screen.  Mine is:

H1178259766

I have no idea if this is useful or not.

That's a support code that I think you use if you have technical support issues.

Your Hunter ID is a 6 character code and can be found after you connect online and are asked to choose your player to enter the City Gate with OR if you are at a City Gate or in a City you can go to your Game Menu and select Status and get the ID.

I am still at a loss on adding anyone.  I suspect we'll all have to be online at the same time to find each other in order to send roster invites.

I've tried adding Seacor as well.  I think he's right; we have to be online at the same time to add each other to friend's lists.  Kind of lame, but it's something that can be remedied.

I think you only have to be online together the first time to add people.  After that, you will be able to instantly warp to your friends by selecting them from the list, according to a moderator at the Capcom Unity forums. 

I'm online for another hour or so, if anyone wants to try adding me to their friends list.

Also, Lindy, I noticed that the server messages state that the Monster Hunter Server maintenance occurs between 12 AM and 4 AM on Tuesdays.  It didn't indicate which time zone that might be, so it might be worth noting when scheduling hunting days.

You can search for your friend in various ways, by ID code or by name.

Once both of you are friends (by sending a message to them and then toggling on the friend request option in the message) you will be able to instantly warp to their town by going to your friends list, selecting their name and selecting warp.

I saw something else of note while on the Capcom-Unity forums, and thought I would post it here as an FYI.

Quote
Question:  My friend and I were playing MH for a little while to get used to it when we noticed each other swinging at nothing.  But we were each attacking a monster on our screen.  The other one of us could hit the "invisible" monsters but they could not hit us and also could not harm us.  The only things we could both see in the right position and both swing at were the bigger monsters.  But the normal weak monsters we each had our own set that the other person could not see.

So my question is... Is this intended or is it a bug?  If it is intended, why?

Answer:  Only Boss Monsters are sync,  All little stuff is sync only via life bars, It helps prevent lag Online.

Keeping track of players + Boss is alot better then the game trying to sync several monsters on screen.

So, in case you see your buddies swinging at nothing while playing on-line, now you know why! 

I'm a little disappointed by this development, because I would hope for strategies where a team would split duty between attacking a large boss and defending others from his henchmen.  If I'm reading the response correctly, I guess that you can still do that in a way, if the little monster's are still tied to a single life bar...  I guess I'll have to wait to see how that really works in practice.

I've got some experience trying to sync real-time data over networks, so I understand the added difficulties of synching all the monsters, though.  If the result is relatively lag-free play, then I suppose that the tradeoff is worth it.

Have you played Freedom Unite?  Controlling the camera with the D-pad on the PSP is a real pain in the ass.  It's virtually impossible to move your character and the camera at the same time, unless you cramp your left hand up in some crazy position.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Sundoulos on April 24, 2010, 11:05:19 AM
Okay, this game has it's warts, but I'm totally starting to fall in love with it.  Here was a cool, but slightly spoilery, game moment:

I was completely taken by surprise during the Monster Guts mission.  I've been trying to grind a little bit to get more equipment for the first mission that I'm guess might be a sort of boss encounter.   So, I've been doing the missions a little out of order.  I took the mission, thinking that it would be pretty easy, since the targets are herbivores.  I took the map and saw a green icon on it in one of the areas.  So, I go there to find the herbivores, but it turns out the icon was representing the Lagiacrus instead.  Of course, this encounter was pretty much scripted.   You sort of have to work your way around the monster to get to the herbivores.   

Since this is my first Monster Hunter game, I'm still kind of working out the game's rules in my head about boss behavior.     
I won't describe too much about it so that I won't ruin anyone else's experience, but since I'm so underpowered at this time, it was kind of intimidating.   Trying to hide and run away from the Lagiacrus provided a few heart-pounding moments.   It sounds kind of silly, but it's been a while since a game has elicited that kind of response from me.   Not a "scared" moment, but my adrenaline was definitely pumping.

After I had gotten the required materials, I was foolish enough to try to get the Lagiacrus in my Monster Hunter's book.   I was standing on the shore waiting for a moment where he wasn't on alert to hop back into the water.  I guess he noticed me because he leaped onto the shore (which I didn't know he could do!) and proceeded to beat me senseless.   I barely managed to escape!


I do have a question, though.  I've noticed that a lot of the weapons seem to have metal version and a bone version... Is there any significant difference in purchasing one over the other...like what sort of you have to use to upgrade them?  Is it recommended that you get both types?

I did that quest but I focused on finishing it alive so I didn't try to book 'em. Figured I'd wait until I had better gear before staying on the same map with that thing for long.

Personally I went with bone as the stats say it does poison damage but yeah, they upgrade differently. If you have the money to spare, you may want to eventually get both just to have weapons crafted for certain types of monster.

I've noticed that, too, GK.  I use a headset mic with earphone in place of my Wii Speak, but I can't get anyone else to talk online.  I'm hoping the first time I play online with you guys, I'll be good to go in that regard (hopefully the rest of you will, too). :)

The game NEEDS communication.  It's key to defeating a lot of those vicious beasts!

Well, I can be quite the talkative person so you shouldn't have to worry about me being quiet when we play.

I'm going to be playing for a bit if anyone cares to join me. I'm still trying to figure out the ropes of the game. I'm having trouble managing my items. How do I make money? I have a ton of goodies from hunting but no money. Do you only get them from quests?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on April 25, 2010, 08:10:53 AM

Indeed. Had lost one online quest thanks to me not knowing what the Hell my partner was doing. A Monster Guts gathering quest yet he kept worrying about the sub quests to the point that he let the clock run down without ever dropping off anything he gathered.

How do I make money? I have a ton of goodies from hunting but no money. Do you only get them from quests?

Quests & selling items you don't want. Careful about selling some of the more expensive items though. They may be useful to combine into new items or used to forge/upgrade stuff. I usually will run by the blacksmith to see what he needs for the gear I want before selling it off. You don't even have to take the stuff out the box to show him either.

To sell, you can take the item to the item selling lady(or kid if you're online) of course but you can actually sell them from your item box by clicking Manage then Sell. Alternatively you can sell items you were awarded from a quest instead of putting them in your pouch or box.

Yeah, it's just a simple USB headset that came with one of my Karaoke Revolution games on the PS2. Monster Hunter Tri recognizes it as "Wii Speak", so I've been using that in place of it. Works like a charm. :)

Thought I read that USB headsets didn't work. Maybe it's just certain types. I like the new headphones I ordered but if this works...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on April 25, 2010, 02:03:01 PM
So is the headset you're using this (http://images.marketplaceadvisor.channeladvisor.com/hi/66/65982/PS2-b-2_LOOSE_logitech_headset_AND_karaoke_american_idol_1.jpg)?

I'm wondering if I could use this (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/webcam_communications/internet_headsets_phones/devices/6526), which seems like a newer and nicer version.

I hate using WiiSpeak when it's just me playing.  It feels like I'm playing a game over a speakerphone.

I want to get a USB headset compatibility list going, if only for Monster Hunter Tri.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

So, every time I get on to play I go through and see if anyone is online to add to my friend list. What a chore, especially if no one is on or is busy in a quest. This is what I propose: I'll PM my cell phone to anyone here who wants to cooridinate being online at the same time, if only for adding to the friend list. Yeah, we could just wait till Tuesday (love that song Voices Carry...) but in case anyone wants to try before hand sending a txt message would be the best way to alert others that we're online. Yeah,... I still need to get a mic, too... I will, promise.

Regardless, I'm on now, up to the 2 star quests online, so if anyone wants help getting there or wants to do those missions, I could lend a hand... If I'm in a quest, send me a message, and I'll talk back when I'm done.

Edit:  So Lindy messaged me, then went offline. -_-

I was going to set up a room on Wisdom 3, Gate 27, Room 5.  In fact, no one is in that Gate, so feel free to come online and join in.  We'll make that NWR MH3 room.

I'm curious if this has happened to anyone else here. Ever gone online & found people sitting around in the tavern, refusing to start a quest because they claim to not have any money on them to pay the initial fee? I mean yeah, I can see every now & then you would show up short changed after forging/upgrading gear & shopping beforehand. But 3 players all with higher ranks & better equipment? At least once, a guy tried to tell me what quest to pick for him.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on April 26, 2010, 07:31:56 PM
That's actually a common occurrence.   Armor and Weapons cost tons, and buying 10 potions costs 660 zenny, almost as much as you'll earn from a victorious quest with two deaths, sometimes more on lower rank quests.  I've tried to do a mission and been out of money, and that was just because people I would play with would keep dying, so it's definitely conceivable.

I say the place for NWR to settle should be Wisdom 3, Gate 27 room 5, but that's just me.  No one uses that server or that gate, so we'd be good.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on April 26, 2010, 07:41:25 PM
Couldn't you grind offline and then take your money with you online?

Wisdom 3
Gate 27
Room 5

This is fine with me.  If nobody else has any suggestions, we'll roll with that.

Just had a really fun game with Kenology, although a slightly weird ending where the Great Jaggi SHOULD have been staggered so we could trap him.

I guess we dealt too much pain.  :P:

Oh, and the above server/gate/city is fine with me, too.  I'll try my hardest to be there tomorrow night... I may be slightly late because of watching Lost, but I will most definitely try to be there. :)

The quests are leveled like the offline ones. If you can at least clear an area of Jaggi, you'll be fine on the level 1 & maybe level 2 quests if you upgrade your equipment every now & then.

Always wanted to get my hammer into Royal Ludroth's head after he's interrupted a quest or two & the first hunt I had on him ended in disconnect before I ever reached him. Finally had a crack at him this morning but we lost. Didn't know we all shared the number of tries. One team member fainted & another one did twice & that was it. Wasn't that upset though seeing how when the one guy died the 2nd time I was only a hit or two from going down myself.

Gonna need an upgrade or two since my weapon was getting deflected more times than I'd like while it was still sharp.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on April 28, 2010, 12:50:23 AM
Well I must say that the first meeting of the NWR Monster Hunter Club was certainly a success!

To recap, in Wisdom 3 Gate 27 City 5 it was me, Seacor, Stratos, and Bustin98.  We completed several quests, but also got stomped out by the Royal Ludroth twice, and couldn't take down that damn Queropeco.  I gained HR 2, but I could never quite make it to HR 3.  I did score a couple of Royal Ludroth tails, which will surely benefit my armor and weapon-making down the line.

In Wisdom 3 Gate 27 City 6 it was Sundoulos, Thatguy, Racht, and Mop it up.  We'll have to wait for their tales of the hunt!

Overall, a good turnout indeed.  See you all next week...AND HAPPY HUNTING!

Post by: Stratos on April 28, 2010, 12:53:29 AM
Yeah, when that Royal Ludroth appeared while we were fighting the Queropeco I kinda ran off after the Ludroth. It was funny how the other fight and ours crossed paths until we all got pwned.

Darn it.  I lost connection again.  Is everyone getting booted on City 6, or is it just my IP?  Sorry, guys.

You could try us instead. We're in City 5 if you want to see if that helps.

I'm bummed I missed this. Once school ends I'll hopefully be hopping in more.

Well, I have to miss the next two Tuesdays due to vacation (fun!), and a overnight lab visit (not fun).  Especially with the DLC in the coming months, I know that I'll plan to participate for quite a while.  I was able to add 6 people to my friend's roster last night, and I was excited about that.  Maybe I'll see you guys online sometime soon. 

I haven't been able to level up as much as some, so my main goal last night was to help out as a could while not dying.  I wasn't entirely successful unfortunately; I think I got my clock cleaned twice.   One of those times, the bird (forgot his name) shot me once while I was trying to heal myself. 

Overall, I had fun, and I was glad to play with some familiar names here.   I look forward to doing it again in a few weeks.

Lindy, I wasn't in your group, but I expect to hear some epic tales on RFN this week.  Embellishment of the exploits of your crew is encouraged!  lol.

Last night was a lot of fun!  It was great playing with you all.

I wish more than 4 players could join the same city.  They could of kept it 4 per quest, but allow 12 people or more to talk and form other quest groups in the same city.  They could of also used the City Gate as a lobby were everyone could meet up and chat.  Ah well...

One thing is for sure, Royal Ludroth can be a royal pain in the ***.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: NWR_Lindy on April 28, 2010, 10:45:46 AM
I have to figure out how to trap monsters, since some quests specifically ask for that.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Seacor on April 28, 2010, 10:49:13 AM
I have to figure out how to trap monsters, since some quests specifically ask for that.

The monsters generally start limping when near death.  At that time you set a trap (1 is provided in the quest box), and when the monster walks into the trap, you throw tranq bombs at it (also provided in the quest box).

If you mess up, you are out of luck unless you complete a sub-quest, which I think provides you another trap and set of tranqs.   You can also bring extra traps and tranqs with you before starting the quest.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on April 28, 2010, 11:00:11 AM
Learned one trick on youtube that pays off. If the monster runs off & takes a nap(aka near death) you can set the strap right next to him without waking him. It'll set off once you finish placing it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on April 28, 2010, 03:44:58 PM
Right, when they're sleeping, you can set traps and tranq 'em, or if you wake them up while sleeping with an attack, from what I've read, you get bonus stuff.  Spotting a sleeping boss, later on, can be a bit difficult.  Anyway, I'm going to go eat some food, but then I'll be playing again, so if you think you might be able to head on, I should be there in a little over half an hour.

We're back online again, but at a different place.  I'm trying out a different place:

Open Servers
Sincerity 4
City Gate 27
City 22

The reason?  On open servers, you can put you're playing with friends, while recruiting servers are made to bring in other people.  Even though the open servers are slightly more populated, we may just receive more privacy.

Same here.  I helped hunt Barroth last night, but took a few too many rides on the kitty cart.  I got to know the kitty's pretty well and learned that one of them is good friends with one of my farm workers.  Apparently, Pepe has been saying some bad things about how I am running my farm.  I also found out that my kitty chef is putting powdered dung in my meals.

I'm going to use this week to finish my research paper that is due on the 7th so I can play the game when I get internet again.

On my spare time I hope to power up my character some so I don't fall behind, though. But the game isn't nearly as fun solo.

I still want to play AC from time to time. But I feel this game will be a similar experience with a few new and exciting elements thrown in.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on April 30, 2010, 08:10:46 PM
Has anyone run into a pair of Great Jaggi offline let? I was sorta hangin' in there but after one of them followed me to the next screen when I had to sharpen my weapon & down some potion, I called it quits & did a quick return home.

One of these days I'll finish all of the level one online quests. Most players seem to prefer killing Great Jaggi or that bird over & over instead getting those less interesting ones done like finding mushrooms.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on April 30, 2010, 09:12:17 PM
Can you blame them?  Gathering is no fun, and killing many of the lower mobs, while not as bad as gathering, is dull compared to the bosses.  Don't forget that if you want to make sets of armor, you'll need to fight those bosses several times, so there's more reason to repeat those missions.

I've got a few tips to help people not die, just stuff I've picked up:

When running, if you tap the "B" Button while a monster is attacking, often you'll do a crazy high super-jump thing, and it renders you (practically?) invincible until it's over.  It's a great method for last-minute dodging.

When you're not looking to attack the enemy, or just not near him, sheath your weapon.  It slows you down and you can't run as effectively.  There's no reason to have your weapon out if you're no where near the monster, especially if it has no charge-up style attack.

Watch out for hammer charges.  The hammer weapon has a charge-up attack that's very effective at stunning monsters or giving status effects, if the weapon is right.  If you see a glowing hammer user running toward a monster's head, he or she's going to try to stun it.  Try not to hit hammer user, since the opportunity to get a clean hit on their head to work towards stun is rare, and the hammer is the weapon that does it best.

Don't be afraid to guard, but dodging is almost always better.  If you have a weapon that can guard, use it.  It's better than taking a full attack, and lances, especially, are great at not taking damage through that method.

Feel free to leave the area to heal up and sharpen your weapon.  There's no reason to stick around to sharpen, especially if you've got a huge chunk of "red" health to use.

If necessary, go rest on the bed at the camp.  It'll refill your life and cancel status effects.  If you feel there's a chance you'll need to do this, bring some extra steak, since it probably means the battle will go on for some time.

Eat!  Eat food before a tough monster, and it'll make it all a much easier fight.  It's tough to tell what food will do, but there's a list available here (http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/MH3:_Kitchen_Skills) that you can use.  Scroll down until you get to the part about ingredients to know what to use for the fight.

Try to carry around a few extra potions, whetstones, and possibly herbs or mega potions.  Mega potions are easy to make, taking honey and a potion, and that's all.  Just because you take them into a fight doesn't mean you have to use them, but emergencies do occur.

Eat two rations right away and be sure to drink the hot/cool drink for the area.  If you don't, you'll have lower stamina than everyone else, and it'll run down quickly if the weather is too hot or cold and you don't drink.

Those are just helpful tips that should lead to a bit more success.  The last thing, I'd say, is don't be afraid to just stand back and watch a monster a bit the first few times you fight.  You might see things like how Qurupeco always taps his flint stones together a few times before he does the leap-forward-fire attack, or that the Royal Ludroth will raise his upper body, but no water will show before he does the side-roll attack.  That can only help you know when to dodge or shield.

Anyway, I'm about to head online, probably.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on April 30, 2010, 11:02:51 PM
Yeah, I know it's not exactly a waste of time to fight them over & over again. Working on a Qurupeco set among others actually. The full Jaggi armor doesn't really impress me but I haven't sold the parts yet since after that arena battle where I accidentally selected a bowgun I've been debating on putting together a Jaggi-gun. Of course the downer to that would be gunners can't wear all of the same armor pieces as everyone else.

Thatguy and I usually meet in the recruiting server, Wisdom 3, gate 27, city 5 or 6.

A lot of people have connection issues, some haven't been able to connect at all since release. Since this game is being hosted by Capcom servers instead of Nintendo, it appears that certain ISPs are being blocked for no good reason.

I'll be heading online if it works.

It just can get very lonely.
 
Though I've gotten quite adept at 'living off the land'. If I chase off a big monster and I am weak and out of health potions I can whip together a few mega potions in a matter of minutes. Herb + Blue Shroom then that + Honey = Mega Potion. I like how pretty much everything you need to beat a mission is available in the land. Only sometimes 50 mins just doesn't cut it to prepare properly like that in the mission. Though it does add an extra layer of challenge if you limit yourself like that.
 
I can already beat multiple Great Jaggis in a row without a breather.
 
About ready to take on the Qururepo bird thingummy solo.

No matter how far you get in the single player, you'll still be a newbie when you go online. You can't play the later online quests until you complete the earlier online quests. Though if you're all beefed up from single player, you'll be able to blast right through the lvl 1 quests. I'm on lvl 3 myself, so you better hurry up and get Internet. It seems most people here haven't gotten as far... I need people to help me through lvl 3! I've played this game too much... Curse you Thatguy!

I actually think single player is easier than online. Monsters are less aggressive and have less health. Though the game is also downright boring, only online interactions make things interesting.

Anyways, I'm online now. Just got done playing with a friend, now I'm lonely...

The Jhen Morhan Event seems to be easy once you know what to do, but it's long, slow, difficult, and has several places to just make you sit there, out of control, wasting time.  It's not exactly the most fun quest, and fortunately, I've got my new, upgraded hammer thanks to it.

I wasn't sure what was going on.  I joined the last quest you picked, but I didn't ring in quick enough before you departed.  You then abandoned the quest, so I thought you were going to start it up again, but Armak didn't come back.  So, I then warped over to thatguy and damsel to see if we could get the Royal Ludroth capture quest done for you, but you then logged.  Anyway, I had to run as well as I had to watch Lost as I wasn't sure if my nearly full DVR would record it all. :D

That hunt was awesome, I've never fought Royal Ludroth before. Sorry for being so dumb, I couldn't figure out how to write in the chat, then I only knew how to use the quick quotes. I figured it out at the end, but I wanted to let you guys know I wasn't just ignoring you or whatever. Hopefully I'll get wii speak soon and it won't matter anyways. I thought the monster guts one was hilarious because we clearly were not seeing the same thing on our screens. All of the sudden things would die right before I got to them with nobody around.

Thanks guys, I can't wait to do this again.

That was your first time fighting him? You were great. After we got him I got enough material for a Ludroth head gear & folds so hopefully I can take him offline now.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Armak88 on May 05, 2010, 02:27:36 AM
Yeah, offline I've done all the quests right up until the one where you hunt Royal Ludroth, but I never tried it. I've played quite a bit though, it took me a while to be able to get the armor I have now and upgrade my weapons to my liking. That fight was really fun though, I thought it was great. I love how everything changes once you jump in the water. Good stuff.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 05, 2010, 04:26:46 AM
Here's another little tip for when playing online: make sure everyone is ready before departing on the quest.

People might want to grab a meal or muck around in the item box for supplies, so give them some time. When people sign up at the board for a quest, you'll see a little note paper appear next to their name in the player list, and their name will also be orange. When they are ready to depart, this icon will be flashing. If you attempt to leave and not all players are ready, the message will inform you that not everyone is ready; make sure to always read this!

Follow this and no hunter will be left behind!

Post by: NWR_Lindy on May 05, 2010, 01:30:28 PM
You have to really watch to make sure everybody is actually ready.  Just because they have the quest paper beside their name doesn't mean anything.

It's way too easy to screw up and leave people behind.

Zach, next time hop on right at 10EST and you'll be able to find a room.  It's confusing at first.  Were you able to get into a City at least?  Remember you have to choose a server, then a gate, and then you have to go up to the bulletin board (at the gate entrance you'll see a vandor at a desk on the right...just to the left of that) and choose a city.

It's way too easy to screw up and leave people behind.
I know, I've been left behind four times already because I wanted to grab a meal or some items, and have seen countless others get left behind.
The problem is that people don't pay attention, which is understandable, people are eager to get started. People just need to check and see if every player has a flashing paper icon by their name, and read the message that comes up when they go to leave to ensure everyone is ready.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 05, 2010, 09:05:39 PM
LOL, once when I hosted the mission everyone was ready and then everyone simultaneously un-checked from ready position.

I didn't even notice at first. I started talking about what strategy we should use and was rummaging around in the item box waiting for everyone else to grab their share of the items so I could take all of what people did not want but no body took anything. I'm say, "you guys all don't want anything?" And take it all and look around the camp to see no one in sight. "Hey! Did you all charge off on the hunt without me?" and go sprinting off only to then realize I was all alone...

Everyone got a good laugh when I got back because they noticed that it took a while for me to quit from the mission. I forget who all was there that time. It was the first night we all played.

Good fun! Nice to finally take down a Ludroth. Barroth was pretty tough because I wasn't used to it's attack patterns and such yet. It's tail would swing around the side of my shield and still hit me. though that could also be because I was right underneath it part of the time.

I'll be playing in a little while, but not right now.

To be honest, I have lukewarm feelings about the game, but what to get a complete feel for it before I write a review.  There's a lot of really off-putting stuff in it, and while it's fun to play multiplayer and I like to help people out, moving up in rank without people like me and Mop it up, who are currently ranks ahead of most NWRers, can be entirely all too painful.

Anyway, yeah, I have a lot of hours, I'm sure, but I don't really look at playtime.  I've been enjoying some parts and groaning at others, which is why I'm surprised to see so many people have loved it so much.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 06, 2010, 09:33:15 PM
Honestly, I'm not surprised to hear that some people love the game, despite its inherent and glaring flaws, like stupidly unintuitive controls, considering how popular games like World of Warcraft are. What does surprise me is that people enjoy the single player mode, as this game was clearly designed to be played online. There's so much grinding, so much repetition, that I can't fathom how anyone would find the single player mode to be anything but mind-numbingly boring. Then again, I'm not an RPG fan, so I guess I just don't understand the appeal in a game such as this. Only the online interactions keep this game entertaining... like setting a barrel bomb that explodes before I intend, wiping out both me and Thatguy. Good times.

I've actually not looked at my playtime, but I've played the game way too much with Thatguy present, so it's probably best we not go check.

I passed the 25 hour mark last I checked. The game is close to breaking into my top 10 most played Wii games and I think they are in the mid 3's at the low end. I'm actually going to update my playtimes in the thread we have somewhere on these boards once Tri hits the top 10.

Can't.  I'm just posting for a bit to de-stress from work. I have a paper to finish tonight that will cost me a seconds nights sleep. But I don't work tomorrow so I'll be sure to come on then. Finishing this paper will be so relieving! The closer I get to finishing the paper the more alluring Tri becomes. It's calling to me right now...(that's my Wii beeping because I got a new message)...blue light beckons...

If it beeps when it gets a new message, you might have a problem with it. It isn't supposed to do that...

Do you want to go to a private room where it will be just the two of us, or do you want to meet in a public room and find two random people?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 09, 2010, 04:21:24 PM
Well, Armak was going to play as well. Is there anything wrong with our usual room?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 09, 2010, 04:24:57 PM
Nothing wrong with it, but no random people will find us there. It depends on what quest level you're at, I don't know if you've reached the point where we'll need 4 players. I guess we'll find out.

I'll go to the usual room (wisdom3, gate 27, room 5).

EDIT: Of course, as soon as I say this, a random person enters my room. Why don't people realize that if I create a room in the dark corners of the server, I'm obviously setting up a private room?

I'm back. Sorry about the delay. I went to get a cup of coffee on the way back and I spilled it all over my car because I was silly and left it on the roof as I was getting in. So I had to clean up a mess on my freshly washed car :(

I'm back on.

Looks like no one is there. I'm at 3, 27, 5

I'll be doing the last basic online quests until someone comes on.

So I have a question: Does the game auto save? I was playing this afternoon and I quit the server and do not remember saving. I hope it did because Mop it up and I took down 2 Barroths together and I got a lot of neat stuff...

I'm going on for a bit now if anyone is up and keep to join. Same place: Wisdom 3, Gate 27. City 5

As far as I'm aware, the game auto-saves after every quest.

Just a friendly reminder that if someone doesn't have Wii-Speak, they can't hear Wii-Speakers.
To add to this, you can't be heard during loading screens. Watch the on-screen microphone icon to see if you can speak.

Most of the time we just wing it or someone types out a plan anyway. Really the only major use I've been getting out of it is Mop it up saying bless you when I sneeze & me saying thank you in return.

I used a Gazelle exercise machine earlier actually.

I think every one has pretty much graduated out of the 1 stars by now.   The capture a Royal Ludroth quest is undone on mine but since I can   select the next level it can wait. Even so I'm still willing to back track for anyone that hasn't finished those earlier quests. Can never forage too much.

Can never forage too much.

My sentiments as well. Especially since I seem to be burning through mega potions with my attempts to get the full Barroth armour set. Only missing the greaves at this point. I'm debating also getting the Barroth Lance to complete my set.

I'm gonna hop on and play for a while shortly. Anyone else game?

I've been out of town for a while, and it's likely I'll have to miss tonight's meetup due to a conflict.  I hope to be on at night over the next few days, though.

I tried to get on last night, but right after I found Mop It Up and thatguy, my ISP decided to go down for a couple of hours.  Grrr!  I ended up clearing out a few more missions on my local game.

EDIT:  Cool.  It looks like I'll be able to play tonight after all, assuming my internet access doesn't go down again...

Been collecting & using those armor spheres? They help tide you over until you can make something better. Don't forget to make/attach decorations too. Those little stat boosts can make a big difference.

Just remember that in most cases, you need +10 points in a skill before decorations do anything at all.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on May 12, 2010, 06:07:34 PM
Nope, not in most cases, but a few may activate upon reaching +5.  Most of the time, it's best to slot in decorations according to what your armor gives, or to prevent something negative from your armor from reaching -10.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 12, 2010, 06:10:46 PM
Yeah, I slot mine because the barroth armor can easily give you a negative in the expert category.

I almost want to build a second set of armor solely for when I go out gathering because I could then load up a set with gathering bonuses instead of removing and reattaching different decorations based on what I plan to do.

Some noob questions.

Just got this game recently and basically did the tutorial stuff and some of the 1 star quests in single player mode.  Haven't tried online yet.  Kind of curious how that really works especially if you don't have a way to communicate (no wii speak, no keyboard etc.)  Is there a way to find people of similar level in game to do quests?  Should I go and try to upgrade in single player mode first?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Armak88 on May 12, 2010, 10:17:02 PM
I think that if you get to the point where you beat the Great Jaggi offline then you should be well prepared for online, but really you can come on whenever you want. When you go to a city it will show you the rank of the people who are in it. If you are just starting, look for cities where people are level 8 and under. Otherwise, try to get online with some forumers here, in my experience we are much more helpful, and much more fun to work with than relying on whoever you happen to come across. (also some of the forumers are quite good and high ranking but aren't above helping you finish low level quests, I know Mop it up and thatguy helped me out quite a bit)
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 13, 2010, 04:43:45 AM
If you press the (-) button a couple of times an on screen keyboard pops up that lets you enter in stuff even without a keyboard. I do recommend picking up wither a WiiSpeak or a keyboard if you do want to play online. Both can be found for pretty cheap. You can also choose from a list of pre-selected phrases  to get your intentions across.

I don't think I've met you before so welcome. Hope to see you online soon.

See shout-outs under the online portion of the menu. You can go with the 12 presets or you can edit them to your liking. Make them things you say often, like "Ah dirty floors..." or "You call yourselves men?!" for example.

Have to edit some of those...

Is it me or does Capcom's censoring go a bit overboard? I remember typing out "Aw crap..." & crap was replaced by 4 asterisks which actually suggests I said something worse than crap in the first place...

By the way, does anyone know how to hand over items to other players?

Someone can be offended by saying "after"? This game is rated T, right?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 13, 2010, 06:44:26 PM
That's what is funny. The characters in the game use soft swears like "hell" and "damn," yet those words are censored in the chat.

The word "after" is censored because apparently, it means something like "anus" in German. Remember, however, that this game has region-specific online play, meaning we can't play with people in Germany.

This game amazes me, but it is for all the wrong reasons.

I'm in the 2-star bracket as well. I still have the fishing quest on the 1-star to finish as well but I'm saving it for when a newer player needs to complete it or when a number of us just want to play together and gather resources.

I'm gonna be online shortly if anyone else is game.

I started having some connection issues right when you left and it booted me from the server so it worked out fine.

I just played some single player for a bit. Cleared everything up to the Gobul hunt and I almost took out the Lagiacrus. Took his tail, had him limping a lot. But I died with about 2 minutes on the clock. I think now that I've got his patterns down the next try will be it.

I should have friend-ed him before I left. The more the merrier I figure.

I friend-ed that ELI fellow we played with the other night. Remember he and that other guy, Wario, played with us? I showed up online today and ELI was there with some other dude and they were running around talking about something. They didn't seem to notice me there even though I could hear him talking. It then sounded like someone's mother started getting mad at one of them or something. I then saw that Mop it up was on elsewhere and warped. Weird...

I'm hopping back on again if anyone is still up. I'm at HR16 and would like to hit 18 tonight. I also need to harvest some Issinium (sp?) or whatever that metal is that you get on the ice world. I have not opened it up in solo play so I can only gather there on the quests.

We literally came back from that quest as soon as you left again. I saw you were back and we tried to get back as soon as we could. I would recommend turning on the Lobby Chat function under the online options, then you can chat with people on a quest.

No, but I started with online. I recently blasted through the single player mode because I had high-end gear that is better than anything you can acquire offline.

More noob questions.  to add someone to your friend list do both people have to be online at the same time or can you send a message to someones ID for them to get later?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 15, 2010, 09:00:12 PM
You can only send messages and friend requests to people who are currently online. The search function will only find players online. You also can't send a message/friend request to someone who is off on a quest. It is kind of a poor system really.

There's a new event quest available now, where you have to remove all your armour and be in the nude in order to join. It might be a good idea if we separated the boys and girls for this one.

...except that would mean I would have to go it solo. Drat. Did GoldenPhoenix get the game yet?

Har har.

Every chance she gets, Mop it up has been trying to get me to strip off my armor to fight things.

Hmm...

Anyway, if I play any today, it won't be for forever into the night and morning, just a heads up.

Cool!  So, apparently this game was designed to support DLC?  This new event quest allows you to make a new weapon - the Sharq Attaq lance.  The post also mentions more new weapons will arrive.

No, it's not real DLC.  It's all stuff that was on the game disc, just time-locked, basically.

No, it's not real DLC.  It's all stuff that was on the game disc, just time-locked, basically.

Plus even if anything was d/l'd it would just be placement and settings data with recycled assets from the main game.

So I didn't sleep at all last night for no particular reason but found no one online when I logged on at a god awful hour of the morning. I tried the Great Baggi Hunt quest online and was shocked at how challenging it was. I kept expecting Jaggi patterns and there were a lot of little Baggi and those were more aggressive too. Most of my damage came due to the little guys. They broke my block and then I'd get slugged by the big guy. I ended up finishing via sub-quest because I couldn't quite get him. I had him going to sleep multiple times after strongly weakening him but I think he might have regenerated an arbitrary amount of health each time while I was sharpening my lance.

Lance feels really unfitting for fighting Baggi. Too slow and he is very fast. :P

You tried it online? The online quests are designed for 4 players, so if you go it solo, it is extremely difficult.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 18, 2010, 01:43:12 AM
Yeah, I was curious and really wanted to boost my HR some more online. I figured it would just be a slightly more challenging Jaggi but forgot how different the attack patterns really were. If I'm not careful one attack of his goes around my defense and still connects with me.

Anyone down with playing right now?

I haven't been able to make time to play online for a couple of weeks.  I would like to finish up the last 2 or 3 quests in the 2 star quest tier (think it's just Gobul and Rathian kill/capture left).  Hopefully, there are still some that are working on those quests?  If not, I'll gladly help out on any of the 1 star tier quests.  I'll should be on around 6pm pacific.

I've already completed all of the low-level quests, but I don't mind joining the lot of you for yours. However, I've been thinking, and I've realized that if I use powerful weapons, it means I'm probably the one doing most of the damage. This doesn't leave as much time for anyone else to gain experience fighting the monsters.

So, I may end up purposefully using a weak weapon, or, possibly, leaving fights for brief periods of time. You've got to learn how to play this game, and develop skill, during the lvl 1 and 2 quests, otherwise you won't make it through lvl 3 and beyond. Helping you rush through the low-level stuff could be a detriment to us all.

It's a good thought.

Like, it was nice having all that help for Lagiacrus last night, but I was pretty surprised how fast he fell.

I can see where some people could miss out on learning things.

My friends canceled tonight so I'm logging on to play.

I'm out on the East Coast and when I go online it's late over here. Tuesdays tend to be my busy day. For the most part my time is open so if anyone has low level stuff to do post and I'll try to help out.

Even coming along to chat is fine by me. Sometimes I wander off to grab a few things before fighting anyway so it's not a big deal to me if you can't contribute much.

And for anyone left on the outside alone, don't hesitate to message me. If I'm in a full room and there is one left out alone I'm fine migrating to you so you can play as well. I'm cool with that for fellow NWR-folk.

Just don't start randomly demanding I warp to you for no reason. I had that happen with a random guy whose friend request I accepted. I've never played with him since but when I've joined his city he's not acknowledged me and then he sent a message last night saying 'Warp to me' and a second saying 'now'. Don't know about you, but I think it's rather rude to act like that. I originally friend-ed him because I thought he was an NWR person but I guess he was just a random guy who showed up.

Are you talking about ELI? I thought he was someone from WiiAreDeep, but it turns out he's just a random 12-year-old. I've blocked him, and I suggest you do the same if you hear from him again.

Everyone should turn on lobby chat which is found in the online options (it's off by default).  You will then be able to see players enter and leave the city, and view city chat.

I haven't tested this as I don't have a keyboard, but apparently you can use TAB to whisper people in the lobby. If you don't have a keyboard, you can use ZR on the classic controller.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 20, 2010, 10:38:07 PM
With Lobby Chat, only other people who have Lobby Chat enabled can see what you type/hear you. If, say, you are on a quest, and both Maxi and I are waiting in the Lobby. I have Lobby Chat on, Maxi doesn't. I can see/hear anything you type/say, and Maxi cannot. However, you would still be able to see anything Maxi might type, even though he couldn't see what you type. Though you wouldn't be able to speak to him, or hear him.

I haven't tested this as I don't have a keyboard, but apparently you can use TAB to whisper people in the lobby. If you don't have a keyboard, you can use ZR on the classic controller.
That works with a keyboard, but I didn't know which button did it without a keyboard. You use it to chat with a specific player, where only they can see what you type.

Speaking of, here's the colour-code for the chat:

White: everyone can see it
Yellow: private chat message
Green: someone in the lobby
Blue: automatic message

Gotta hunt Barroth a few more times myself. His armor is looking like my best bet for my upcoming bouts with Lagiacus. Also on offline there's a quest where you have to slay a Barroth & Great Jaggi. Hopefully they won't cross paths like that double Barroth fiasco.

Yeah, it was drooling for a while but at one point stopped. Think we wasted too much time when it moved. Neither one of us brought the paintballs so we couldn't track him.

I'm starting to get the hang of a Great Sword I made when I was bored. Glad I never sold all of those spare Jaggi/Great Jaggi parts I never used for his armor because the Chieftain's Great Sword is insane strong for something made out of mostly early monster parts. Sad part is that it's almost useless against Barroth because the damn thing moves around so much that I hardly ever hit it. Not to mention how slow I walk while the weapon is drawn...

Don't worry guys, I just completed the first star quests and I'm only HR6.  I'll need to grind up to HR9 to do the second-level quests, I believe.

I don't think I'll be able to make it on Tuesday, since it's my BIRFDAY!  I'll be out having dinner or drinks or something.

But for those that asked, the Monster Hunter Club meets on Tuesday nights at 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern.  We typically meet in Wisdom 3, Gate 27, City 5.  Although once you get some people in your friends list it becomes kind of irrelevant, since you can just warp to them.

Ah don't feel bad, I'm not all that far ahead. Besides, going back means more practice for what lies ahead. Speaking of which I'll have to fight Barroth one or two more times. The last bit of armor I need for his set requires his tail. Somehow I gotta chop that sucker off.

Stratos, Sundoulos
Thanks for trying to help me with the quest.  Sorry for the connection errors.  First time it's happend to me yet.  oh well I'll have to try again some other night. 

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Sundoulos on May 24, 2010, 12:30:56 PM
No problem, apdude.  It's happened to me, too.

In general, I don't have a whole lot of time to play games, and I've been staying up later than I should to play Monster Hunter.  As a result, my overall progress will probably be kind of slow.  Still, even if I'm in a different HR bracket, I'll always be willing to help out on a quest; so, everyone, please don't hesitate to ask (And don't feel bad about it!)   I'll help out if I can. 

The whole reason I decided to play this game was because I wanted to play a people in the NWR community.  I haven't regretted the decision. :)

Besides, Mop It Up, That Guy, Stratos, (and others) have helped me out a LOT.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 24, 2010, 03:23:25 PM
Half of the game is helping others out. I enjoy it. Besides, it's not like the higher level players don't get nothing out of it. They could at the very least sell the monster drops plus there is the money reward. I always find myself short of cash after I get a new weapon so I need to earn more money either way.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 24, 2010, 06:26:06 PM
Those quests are too easy (read: boring) when using high-level gear, though. As a result, I usually just mess around, or gather stuff, for the first few minutes, and let the lot of you go at it. Though I don't want it to drag on too long, so I step in eventually. Or if someone faints, because I don't want to fail the quest.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: noname2200 on May 25, 2010, 12:29:09 AM
When helping with the lower-level quests, I usually just ditch my usual equipment and play around with something new.  I'm learning bow-guns this way, and was considering making a "triumphant" return to the Sword and Shield.  The paralysis and Dragon attacks are so tempting when combined with that attack speed...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 25, 2010, 04:10:08 AM
I really don't like using the S+S. I enjoy the Longsword, Switch Axe and Lance most. I'm most comfortable with Lance but prefer playing with the mobility granted by the others. I only use the S+S when I go on gather missions because I can stun Kelbi with it. I use the Deadly Knife which has two decoration slots so I max it out with gathering bonuses along with a separate suit of armor that has similar bonuses. I eventually want to craft a 'gather suit' that has gather, speed gather and carving skills attached to it.

I don't think I'll be able to make it on Tuesday, since it's my BIRFDAY!  I'll be out having dinner or drinks or something.

Happy Birthday, Lindy!


I should make it tonight, but probably not until later, as usual.   It looks like SMG2 is going to be delivered today; it'll hard to resist that if it arrives.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on May 25, 2010, 02:30:04 PM
Oh yeah, happy b-day Lindy. Have fun out there.

Well something odd worked in my favor when I got home last night. Never could get that Barroth tail so I had this plan where I would buy, level up, & wear Bone Faulds instead. Drove Lagi off(offline) with it & was able to make some Barroth Faulds when I played online today...have to say I think I'll keep wearing the Bone Faulds. With the decoration slots I edged up enough points to activate the skills of a Barroth set but without the -1 Critical Eye & it has Item Use Up. Not a bad trade off for only sacrificing a few defense & thunder resistance points that I'll make up for as soon as I can get my hands on some Adv. Armor Spheres.

I've heard that some of those connection issues can be resolved if a mutual host bridges the gap. If I opened up a room in Tri then you and Ryan could join and play no problem. But as soon as I leave then you two will get errors and not be able to play together again. Others have mentioned these workarounds on other sites.

That hunt with the Rathalos was wild.  There's nothing like walking into an area and seeing a deadly ball of flame in mid-flight that happens to be coming straight for you.

That was fun, but Jhen Morhan (sic) needs to die much sooner.  Half an hour of spamming cannonballs gets dull after the first time.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 26, 2010, 10:53:25 PM
The Jhen Morhan battle is refreshing because of its change of pace... but it takes way too long! I have yet to play it where it wasn't completed during the final minute. I'd suggest to not waste your time playing the event quest version, because you get no special reward. That's the 3-star urgent quest, so wait to beat it when it really counts for something.

Unfortunately, Jhen Morhan is not the most annoying monster you'll find in the game...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on May 26, 2010, 11:23:59 PM
The event quest is actually shorter, and it ends sooner.  The rewards are the same, so it's an easier way to get Jhen Morhan stuff.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

That's good to know. I should check if I need his stuff for anything.

He can give Elder Dragon Blood, useful for a few late game items.  It's a very rare drop, though, and since things with a 14% drop rate can take hours of grinding, I'd say don't go for it.

Wear armor/decorations that boosts your luck? May want to grab a snack & activate Felyne Carver before that quest too. More carving chances might help you get that stuff.

I agree completely.  The first time I fought him I was having a blast, because the fight was so different and condensed.  But 10 minutes into the second fight it just got repetetive, and that feeling intensified during the third fight.  It doesn't help that the best way to kill him is apparently to stick with the ship's weapons whenever possible: hopping on his back and poking him with a stick certainly didn't feel like it was doing much, and the times we tried that were the times we failed the mission. :(
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on May 27, 2010, 04:42:02 PM
You've got to aim at the spots where he's got cuts in his back.  There's four, and attacking them will do a little more damage than just firing stuff, I believe.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 27, 2010, 05:38:22 PM
Two questions: how do you hop on his back? And how do you aim with the weapons? Every time I load a cannon it just fires straight into the monster.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on May 27, 2010, 07:10:08 PM
I forget how to aim those weapons but sometimes he gets close enough where a red marker will appear. Can just run & you'll jump off the ledge & onto his back. Tricky thing is sometimes the marker appears when he's not actually in range & you'll just jump into the sand.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 27, 2010, 08:09:39 PM
You can't aim the cannons, they are stationary. You'll just have to wait until it is lined up.

For the ballista, first you must gather the ballista ammo. To use it, highlight the ammo in your item selection, step up to the ballista, and press the item button. Use the left analogue stick to aim the ballista, and the "confirm" button to fire.

Didn't realize how much a pain it is when you complete an Urgent quest that it doesn't count unless you foot the bill. Knew the events were like that but you still got the loot & reward so I didn't mind as much.

My bad Jason, Damsel. Usually I quickly Monster Wiki a new(to me) monster or ask before going on a hunt but I forgot that last time & Uragaan seemed to have taken pleasure in that. Pretty sure I already own the proper equipment to beat that thing, just gotta put it on next time.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 29, 2010, 04:35:19 PM
S'alright mate, things happen. Uragaan is one of the tougher monsters on the three-star level, it probably wasn't a good idea for me to pick that, but I wasn't really thinking. Plus I was falling asleep, so I wasn't giving it my all.

If I'm not mistaken, the armour you used was weak to fire. Though that isn't too important, because it has only one fire attack, which is easy to avoid if you see it coming. Higher defense is more important.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 29, 2010, 05:21:50 PM
I have more of a problem with forgetting to choose a weapon that can actually damage Uragaan. My Wyvern fire long sword bounces off of him 9 times out of 10.

But now I have a water powered lance. The upgraded form looks totally awesome too. But I need lots of Giginox stuff for it. that's why last night I started wanting to fight it more. I need poison sacks and talon-claw thingies from it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on May 29, 2010, 05:30:27 PM
Funny thing is my current highest defending armor is also my fire defense one too. I only like the one I had because of the added attack boost.

Anyone try that Gobul event? Taking down Gobul yet still failing because you couldn't find any Goldenfish hurts almost as much as losing via dying.

One of the weapons I had done was an improved water-hammer actually. Upgraded that one & bought a new one left me too tapped to even pay for that quest. Worse still, I brought the wrong one. >.<

Got the main thing I needed from Giginox but then again those Mega Demon Drugs could come in handy.

you can make mega demon drugs? Sweet! I assume that's by adding honey? Hope that means you can also make mega Armorskins. I prefer the demon drugs and armorskins because they last longer than the same stat boosting pills.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on May 29, 2010, 05:59:08 PM
Nah, it's Demon Drug combined with some extract from Giginox. I'd tell you how well it worked but I needed it as an ingredient for a hammer upgrade...which I need more money for to actually do.

Post by: Mop it up on May 29, 2010, 06:16:36 PM
Mix Pale Extract (Gigginox reward) with a Demondrug or Armourskin, and you get the Mega version of it.

The effects last until the quest is over or you faint, whichever comes first. Might/Adamant Pills give you a substantially larger boost, but last no longer than a minute I believe.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on May 29, 2010, 06:32:15 PM
I figured the pills had a stronger effect as a trade off. But I like the others because of their longevity. Then I could use them at the beginning of the mission and probably be good the whole time and free up a much needed item slot.

Do the bonuses stack? Because I could use the drugs at the mission start and the pills (lol, MH is making me a druggie) when I find the monster.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on May 29, 2010, 06:46:49 PM
Yeah, I was wondering if those stacked too. I would get an attack or defense boost from a meal but still take pills/seeds at the start of a quest.

I'm game Stratos. Give me a time & I'll make sure I'm not stuck chatting or something.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on May 29, 2010, 07:19:30 PM
I'm not sure if the bonuses stack, but they might because they work differently. There is a way to find out, though: check your status before you take each item, then check afterward. If your numbers go up, they stack. If not, they don't.

Overslept anyway, no biggy.

Anyone here nail that Shut Up & Fish! event? It's not as hard as it first seemed to me. While worms are in the supply box at first, golden fish bait appears at some point after fishing out Gobul if you don't want to bring your own. Had a plan where I got the fish while the other 3 fought on but they had....other ideas. I left after the 3rd attempt when one of them whipped out their bowgun & shot at Gobul before he could be fished out...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: that Baby guy on May 30, 2010, 11:04:16 AM
I never found it challenging at all.  This isn't the first time it's been available.  All you have to do is bring a little bit of goldenfish bait (which isn't even necessary,) and then kill a Gobul.  When it comes to fishing him out, you use a Frog, which is actually available in area 2, close to its exit to area 4.  Worms are also available there.

Just have someone fish Gobul out right away, before anyone starts doing any fighting, and when he finally leaves the area, have two people fish for Goldenfish.  Take the Goldenfish back, pick up the bait to replace what you used doing the quest, and go where the other people are fighting Gobul.

I can't remember if you need small goldenfish for the quest, though, but whenever I ever needed any, I just brought them with me.  This isn't a quest where you get any exclusive items, so there's no reason to spend much time bothering with it unless you want to just have an extra quest option.

Hey all, just wanted to let you know that the Monster Hunter Club is of course meeting tonight, same time, same place.

I may or may not show up depending on how I feel.  I'm pretty freaking exhausted after my weekend, which was a wedding out in San Francisco for a longtime buddy of mine.  The whole thing was go-go-go with plenty of drinking, and my Sunday night Monday morning went like this:

5pm Wedding
6pm Cocktails
7pm Reception
1am Hotel After-Party
2am Back to hotel room to pack
3am Leave for airport
6am Flight leaves

2:30pm Get home

I didn't sleep much the rest of the day either...so I'm a little exhausted right now.  I just don't feel "right", if you know what I'm saying.  Work is hella busy too, and I'm trying to sell my car during all this, so I'm pretty much zonked.

But yeah, definitely get on and hunt some monsters.  Don't let my whining hold you back. ;)

That Diablos really tossed us about. :P

I seem to be getting more irritated at the fights than I used to. Gigginox seems to cheat and other monsters I recall not having too much trouble with are giving me a lot of grief now. Though it may be because I'm playing with different people.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 05, 2010, 10:12:31 AM
Yeah, I need a new armor set before I try that one again. Part of why I'm not at the urgent yet is because I've been focusing on collecting money & material. Think I need Rathian's tail of the chest plate but even after slicing that off a few times I've never actually collected the item. Same with Lagi. Wondering if those are easier to get when you fight them while wandering in Moga Woods or something.

A lot if not all of the monsters have a cheap move or two up their sleeve. What gets me is how they seem to know who has the least amount of life or poorest defense at times & will chase them around. Uragaan for example seems to just have it in for me. Even when I was playing an event where you battled him & Diablos in the arena, Uragaan would roll my way the majority of the fight. Most of the time I was taking on Diablos then BAM rolled over from behind.

Maybe where there are less than four people playing it feels cheaper because more of the attacks are directed at you.

I know what you mean about them targeting vulnerable players, GK. I swear anytime a player starts using a horn it goes after them.

Hopping on now since word on the street is that there be huntin going on.

Horn & whetstones. I can kinda understand the horn since the Hunter's Horn does claim to call monsters(has anyone here ever tried that by the way?). Guess the fact that you changed it to a health or antidote one doesn't change that.

Want sleep? Try Benadryl Maximum Strength Severe Allergy Plus Sinus Headache. I think it's made with Baggi spit. Thus why I wasn't on last night/this morning.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 07, 2010, 12:27:24 AM

What are the pros and cons of each weapon?

The Hammer does high impact damage & has charged swing attacks depending on how long you hold the button down. Downside is that there's no defense to it at all. Even items that increase guard or add auto guard are voided.

Bowgun of course is great for shooting away at a distance & there are different types of ammo for different situations. Kinda cool that you can customize them as well. Downside is of course monsters typically don't keep their distance when attacking.

Great Sword is another hard hitting weapon like the hammer but you can actually block with it. Has a charged slash too. Only downer to me is that you move -really- slow while it's drawn. You'll find it more effective to sheath the sword & run over to a monster that moved across the area than to walk over there. Not the fastest swing either but with such a wide horizontal slash you don't always have to be facing whatever you were aiming at to hit it.

Sword & shield is light, fast attacking & has a shield. Not very strong so you'll have to strike fast & often to make a dent.

Haven't spent much time using the lance. From what I can tell it's a great stabbing weapon & the shield with it basically turns you into a walking phalanx. Think there's a forward rush attack in there judging from the times a lancer has bowled me over... Have to ask someone else here what the cons are.

Longsword... Only ever used one in the demo. Not sure where the power stacks up compared to the other weapons but it have some pretty cool combos(with practice) & a Spirit Slash special attack. Doesn't block but has side & back step evade-slashes. Only downers I can think of for now are that you don't get the most out of it by spamming one button & the one Spirit Slash combo I could do in the demo ends with the hunter auto-sheathing the sword. Looks cool but kinda stupid if the boss ain't dead yet.

Switch-Axe is a transformable sword/axe. Axe mode has longer range & a nice combo or two. Sword is closer ranged but I believe the stronger mode. Cons? Sword mode runs out of gas when used too much & you'll auto change back to axe mode while the gauge recharges.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 07, 2010, 04:25:51 AM
Do you want to play online Stratos?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 07, 2010, 04:43:58 AM
Yeah, I'll be on shortly. Just got home.

On the matter of Lances, they are slow like great swords so that is a con. You can block nearly every attack if you play right. The charge is done with the minus button. It does bowl over other players but can get you in a lot of hits if your weapon is sharp enough.

I think the axe mode is stronger than the sword mode with the switch axe. Axe mode is similar to a hammer to my understanding (not tried a hammer yet). Sword mode is good for close combat with other players as the axe mode can trip up people like an axe can.

Long Sword movement is faster than lance or great sword and attacks are slow until you build up your attack gauge. Then you can whip out really fast rapid attacks and your bar glows stronger the more hits that connect. I didn't know there were more than the one spirit attack. I'll have to look and see what else I can do with it. Long Sword has become my favorite weapon. Used to be lance in the beginning. Now I switch between Switch Axe, Long Sword and Axe primarily. I do have a Sword & Shield I use on gathering trips since it can stun the kelbi to better collect horns and I gave it a bunch of gathering bonus decorations.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 07, 2010, 05:02:08 AM
Thanks for the pointers guys.

I am leaning towards the Switch Axe and hammer to try out.

I can't craft the Switch Axe yet or the long sword so I will have to try out the hammer.

Stratos I'm going to hop online and try out the hammer on some early missions. I am HR5 now and got some better armor so I should be fine.

I will be at the usual place so when you are done come join me.:)

Wow played 2 hours and 30 mins.Sorry for keeping you up Stratos. Now I just need 2 more Monster Bone M for the hammer I want. Now we know to go after the Trick the Trickster quest for those items.On the bright side though we got lots of other items for use.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 07, 2010, 03:00:07 PM
That was my goal. Bag you a crap ton of swag. That's why I captured most of the monsters on hunts as well (or...tried ha ha.
 when I didn't get carried away and whale on a monster until death.)

I was also hoping to push you to level 9 but 7 is a good point for our night. You're almost ready for your first urgent quest.

Remember to save everything you find in the game. Never know when you will need it for something. I sold off all my monster fluid early on and then found out I needed it for a specific axe. And after that I stopped being able to easily find it.

A lot of difficult to acquire material can be earned from completing sub quests which was why I was always trying to complete all of them.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 07, 2010, 03:37:00 PM
Yeah I haven't found any Monster Fluid yet. I need it for one of the village requests offline. Most of the items I try to save. Any items I don't think I will get used I sell it when finishing quests.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 07, 2010, 03:38:38 PM
Don't sell anything like that yet. Send it to your box. You'll be surprised what you will need in the future.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 07, 2010, 03:42:05 PM
Alright I will try to save everything. I'm probably going to get on later today around 6pm PST. For now I am going to work on my Bug team.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

The Hammer does high impact damage & has charged swing attacks depending on how long you hold the button down. Downside is that there's no defense to it at all. Even items that increase guard or add auto guard are voided.
One thing the hammer can do is stun enemies, though you have to hit it in the head, which isn't always possible with large monsters.

Bowgun of course is great for shooting away at a distance & there are different types of ammo for different situations. Kinda cool that you can customize them as well. Downside is of course monsters typically don't keep their distance when attacking.
The real downside is that bowgunning is very expensive. Not only do you have to constantly buy ammo, but you have to create a whole different, gunner-class set of armour for it.

Haven't spent much time using the lance. From what I can tell it's a great stabbing weapon & the shield with it basically turns you into a walking phalanx. Think there's a forward rush attack in there judging from the times a lancer has bowled me over... Have to ask someone else here what the cons are.
One thing is, blocking uses more stamina than dodging. So it is important to keep the gauge as full as possible.

Just make sure you are careful not to pummel your allies when it's jump-on-the-stunned-monster time. It can be a problem with the axe, hammer and long sword.

I wish there was a way to unleash my spirit combos without pummeling people over half of the time.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 08, 2010, 07:45:05 AM
Yeah, hammer stunning is fun & all but watch your HP. You'll almost always get caught by a forward charge of some sort. Thank you Divine Blessing.

I know you can make ammo by combining items too. Does that help reduce the costs of keeping a bowgun around? Saw that there is a free bowgun you can get via rust shard but the stats don't look promising. Looks like a Civil War rifle or something.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 08, 2010, 06:33:27 PM
You can combine items to make ammo, but for most types, you make only one bullet with each combination. You'll end up using hundreds of items just to fill your pouch with ammo, which means hours and hours of gathering the materials. It's easier to simply buy ammo, since money is much easier to get.

Combining does serve a purpose, though. Since you can carry only a limited amount of each type of shot, you can take the items to combine for more on a quest. Also, only lvl 1 strength items can be purchased, lvl 2 and 3 must be combined. You might be able to buy/trade for the materials used in those shots, but either way, it is a huge grind to prepare a bowgun for each quest.

I have that bowgun from the rustshard, it is not a good one. It has the ability to fire multi-shot crag shots, which means it fires three in a row for the price of one, dealing triple damage. However, it can't use very many other types of shots, and has small clip sizes for them (it can't use recover shots or power/armour shots, so it offers no support). You can carry only 9 crag shots, and materials to make 9 more, which isn't enough to be worth it.

No, the Wii Speak quality is worse than Animal Crossing, but better than The Conduit. It's a bit more grainy, but doesn't have an echo. Just speak clearly and enunciate, and it should be fine. Also note that only someone with Wii Speak can hear you.

Post by: Mop it up on June 09, 2010, 02:26:10 AM
I'll be honest... sometimes I have no idea what you are saying. In those instances I usually hear enough key words to piece together what you're trying to communicate, but there have been a few times where I couldn't make it out. That can be a bit awkward, because I don't want to seem like I'm ignoring you, and don't want to be annoying by asking you to type it out...

Once again, I have trouble comprehending electronically reproduced voices due to being partially deaf in one ear. Because of that, I don't think repositioning it would help me, specifically. Someone with regular hearing may not have an issue with the sound quality, I don't know. You'd have to ask them.

Next armor I am going to invest in is the Barroth I believe. It has Resistances to fire. My current Ludaroth armor as a whole has -11 in fire resistances. Might want to mix my outfit later on.

Only people with a Wii Speak themselves can hear others.

Might want to mix my outfit later on.
Mixing armour pieces is rarely a good idea. Having a complete set enables certain skills, and skills are more important than defense points.

Mixing armor works best when you've fully figured out how armor abilities work, and want to manipulate your gear for specific abilities.  There's a few examples of good mixes on the monster hunter wiki (just google those words to find it,) but generally, without a lot of planning, it doesn't work out.

I just checked and I didn't have Wiispeak hooked up. My 2 USB slots were being occupied by my charger and my keyboard. I will remember to switch my keyboard for WiiSpeak the next time we play.

Thank you for the link thatguy. I looked through the armor and I noticed 2 armor with no weaknesses or resistances in the elemental areas.The Guild and Ranger armor. Are these good armor to shoot for?

I advise switching out the charger and not the keyboard. That way you can communicate with non-wiispeak owners.

Guild Armor is nice because of its Evasion+2 and Good Luck abilities (Autotracker stops mattering very early on), but it'll take lots of time in the Arena to earn, and it doesn't come with any slots for gems (a BIG downside).  Having Taunt can be a plus if you're looking to tank (i.e. me), but a big minus if you're not very comfortable with dodging/blocking.

Ranger Armor was pretty nice, but the Bad Luck is a huge downside if you're trying to collect parts for that next armor/weapon.

One important thing to note: Resistances are good, especially for gunners.  Don't think neutral-resistance is anything to shoot for.

About to head on now. Never did get that some stuff I needed & blew 10k on a Hell Hunter Jacket which I don't need at all but looks awesome. Gotta make some zenny now...

I retract the statement I said about the Hell Hunter Jacket. With +2 on all elements & 3 slots, it makes an excellent stand in for armor sets that are missing the chest plate after a few upgrades. Just have to remember to properly set those decorations for what you're filling in for.

Well yes you were put with me. I just wanted to see what it was. I was thinking to myself as the cutscene was going on. "What have I gotten myself into." But hey we managed to beat it.  I think now my HR Rank is 16 now. So 2 more levels for the next urgent rank.I upgraded my armor up to 4. I have a -15 weakness to fire so basically any fire attack and I am in danger health. Glad I got my dodges down.

Post by: GK on June 11, 2010, 10:15:21 PM
lol not you Maxi. Your HR is lower than some of us but you're obvious good at playing. You just need stronger armor next time. Seeing how your deaths were so far apart I guessed you evaded pretty well & just got caught once or twice when he rammed the ship. Talking about players with a mix-match of leather & jaggi parts that I'm not sure can take on Quropeco let alone Jhen Moran. Besides, we did it on the first try while others would die 3 times & try it again & again. Had that happen in 5 seperate cities last night

Yeah, Ludroth is a poor choice against fire. Try Quropeco or the Rhenoplos armor. Quropeco seems to hold up against Rathian. Can wear it against Rathalos too but keep dodging. His fireballs take a bigger chunk out of your life bar.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 11, 2010, 10:45:16 PM
Well when you are this low a HR compared to others in the group I got to try and play as best as I can to stay alive so we don't have to start the quest again.

I think I tried getting on Jhen Moran but I wound up in the water so I just stayed on the boat launching cannonballs at it. The projectiles coming from the sky was the main problem. I even got hit by one trying to get back on the boat causing me to die. The other death was the Jhen Moran ramming the boat and me not keeping an eye on it. After I died I tried to find safe spots.Like behind the pole near the cannonballs but that wasn't entirely safe.

I'll try those armor out.Thanks.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 12, 2010, 01:26:29 AM
When it comes to this incoming rocks I typically just stay clear of the cannon balls & weapons. They seem more likely to land there. The front of the ship may or may not be a safe spot from that. I know if I have a cannon ball & those sandfish are on the deck, I'll often stay up there until they pass. They can't swim up the stairs it seems.

He's got two different swipes, one which hits everything in the front and one which hits almost everything in the back.  If you're near the cannonballs and hugging the railing opposite the beast, you'll be safe from both swipes.  That spot is also safe from most (all?) of the rocks he flings.

Regarding hopping onto him, just make sure that the red triangle has been there for a second or two, since it's prone to lie about when you can hop on.  Realistically though, unless you've got a strong weapon (preferably an ice-or-dragon one) you'll rack up more damage by spamming cannonballs, or hitting his tusks and arms with ballista shots.

I did another Jhen Mohran run last night. Some guy popped on our room and just posted a mission for it. Personally, when it's something big like that, I think it's polite to ask the other players if it is ok to do it. Just posting the mission and saying nothing is a little rude and I almost refused. But I decided to try it anyway. I have a couple of his parts I could use.

I think Mop it up gets most of the credit for helping me move on. She helped me through my 3* urgent. I'm at 35 or 36 now. It also helped that I liberally chased free hunts since they give you nice HR bonuses.

Elemental weaknesses can be negated in many ways. For starters, if you know you are going to fight a monster who has attacks with your weakness, eat some food that increases the resistance of that element. Additionally, there are items which increase your resistance as well. If it is something common like fire, you could even go so far as to use armour decorations which increase elemental resistance, or be lucky enough to find a charm with +10 resistance to something (even +8 or +9 can help, if you mix it with decorations). Ideally it is good to have a few different armour sets, but it will take a while to create them, and until then, this is the way to go.

However, if you're concerned with having a weakness, it likely means you're getting hit too much. :P

I hear ya. Like I mentioned before some of the people trying didn't stand a chance but sometimes I joined just to mine Jhen Mohran's back while everyone else get themselves killed.

That's exactly why I'm glad I have the lot of you. In my (admittedly limited) time playing with random people, very few of them have been competent, much less respectful. Unfortunately I sometimes don't have much choice. I'm after Vangis armour, and there are very few people on my list high enough to fight Deviljho. The ones that are, are usually in a room with three other people whenever I log on.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 15, 2010, 03:58:34 AM
I ran into a polite person who requested for us to do Jhen and I praised and thanked him for it. I got the last parts I needed for the Ram Deo or whatever longsword including the elder dragon blood. Very pleased.

Also scored the Ridge+ I needed from Barroth so my Barroth+ armour is set.

I'm at 36 now so I'm getting close to being able to help you. In fact I stupid-crazy enough to be willing to try now. We could do a different quest on the 4:star: ranks where he appears.

My current goal is to get and upgrade the Rathian+ armour until I get to 5:star: where I am assuming I can begin to fight Rathalos so I can boost my Rathalos armour back to a competitive level. I still need a Rathalos Plate for the gauntlets... :P

I also still need an Unnerving Talon.

I discovered that you can use the pointer to drag parts into your hunters book from the forging menu. It then chimes specially when you actually get that part from a carve. Not terribly ground breaking, but it sure boosted my excitement when it chimed as I carved the Barroth Ridge+ I needed. And since it's easy to miss the little '+' it's nice to get an audible confirmation you got the part you needed.

Hopping on in a bit if anyone is game.

I'm sure you are. Didn't you say you like to rush in and attack any monster like a "hooting barbarian"? Yeah, that's always a good way to get yourself killed. :P Even if the two of us could survive, there isn't enough time to defeat it before the quest time runs out. Deviljho requires four players with at least a lvl 5 weapon... and if at least one person doesn't have a dragon weapon, it is still a rather lengthy fight.

So far, I have stuck to the offline mode and I'm about halfway through. I've decided to try the online mode, but I really don't enjoy online games with random strangers, they tend to involve a lot of... unpleasant individuals, so I decided to come here to at least get a feel for the community. I don't have a USB keyboard or wii speak but I do have a laptop if people use other forms of communicating. How far do you guys believe I should be offline before venturing online? I look forward to at least meeting some other people who are into the game.

Its up to you. I personally played for 3 days of the offline to get decent armor and weapons. I haven't played offline since I started playing online. Some people go through the offline entirely to get better armor and weapons than people who jump in online real quick. Considering this is your first entry into the series you can search Monster Hunter Wiki and there is lots of info there.

I'm HR26 now and I only really started playing I think on June 6th  I think.Others I have seen are HR 72 who got it back when it launched.

Mileage has varied.  Many started playing online right away, while others have waited a while.   Being able to take the Great Jaggi and Querupeco on solo is probably a good measuring stick for when you're ready to start playing online.   You're well-past that point.  I would say that you're well past the point where you can venture on line.

Some of us meet on Tuesday nights in the following location:  Wisdom 3, Gate 27, City 5.   We migrate to other cities at needed, though, admittedly, it's been a relatively small group since Memorial Day weekend.

Hi! You don't have to play single player at all, the online mode has the same quests plus many more. Though it isn't a bad idea to play to the point where the game has explained everything, but it sounds like you're far past that. As far as I know, no one uses outside communication except me, I use AIM.

Are online monsters tougher? Or is a Jaggi just a Jaggi?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 21, 2010, 11:27:24 PM
Try Amazon for a USB keyboard, I got one for $12 plus no tax and free shipping.

Online monsters are tougher, but you also have more people whacking it besides yourself. They have a lot more health of course, but they are also more aggressive. Other than that, they're the same, with the same attacks and everything

HR28 now and I got some new Ingot armor. I have less than 10,000 in money now but it will be worth it later. Probably going to work on Ice resistant armor next. Then I only need Dragon Resistance armor.

I guess it makes sense that you go by that. You are Luxray20 on the other forum. Anyway what HR are you and your favorite weapon to use?

That was the biggest giveaway that helped me draw the connection. I saw Lux and Ryan and was fairly sure it was you. You can do password recovery if you want. But this way you get a different name if that is what you want. I'm just happy to see you back one way or another.

And welcome to the club, Pablo. I jumped online once I got the first set of armor and my first lance. I like going and doing the offline stuff after playing it online because then I'm tougher and know the monsters better so they are much easier and less frustrating.

I wouldn't bother with ice resistance armour, it isn't worth it. There's only one monster with ice attacks, and that's Barioth. You're also not at a point where you can get good dragon armour. Since you're so close to reaching high-rank, I think that you should just save your money and resources for when you reach that, and need to upgrade all your armours, or make new ones.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 22, 2010, 08:40:53 PM
It's kinda sad that how you can't upgrade some armor right at the first high rank. I had to pull out my old Barroth armor and upgrade that instead of my precious Rathalos set. I started a Rathian set specifically because I wanted some kind of Rath armor on the advanced but I now have a full Barroth set and am close enough to the next level I'll just stay with it until then.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 22, 2010, 08:42:32 PM
Thanks Mop it up for the tip.I saw 2 armors for Dragon resistance.

Lux yeah I think I can play later tonight. What time?

Hmm weapons. I have a fire weapon, a Thunder weapon,a Paralize weapon, 2 water weapons.I think that is it.

Probably need a poison,Ice, and Dragon weapon. Any recomendations?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 22, 2010, 08:58:34 PM
I'm partial to the ice knife myself, it seems better suited for the type of monsters weak to ice.

I'm going to go for the poison lance once I figure out which materials it needs.

I don't know if any dragon weapons can be forged. You have to find rusted weapons from rust shards, and restore them. There's one for every weapon type, so just restore whichever type you like best.

The Jhen Mohran Longsword has dragon elemental attacks.

Post by: BeautifulShy on June 22, 2010, 09:35:07 PM
The Jhen Mohran Longsword has dragon elemental attacks.
Yeah I was just looking at the wiki and noticed that. Another thing I noticed was that certain weapons have elements that can be awakened. What is that about?

Lux if you can play now let me know.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 22, 2010, 09:54:56 PM
I just checked and it seems there is no rusted longsword or switch axe, so I guess those two have other means.

There is a skill called "Awaken" which can give an elemental attack to certain weapons. It is available at lvl 5.

All right! So, GK has reached his 3-star urgent quest last night. Might you be around tonight, GK? We're going to need to assemble a team of four players to tackle this one; and not just any four, four who know what they are doing.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 25, 2010, 06:07:01 PM
I'll be around. Now after playing Jhen a few times I have a good idea on how to beat it and how to avoid its attacks.

First of all it has weakness to Ice and Dragon attacks. If you don't have those just go with your strongest weapon.We probably need 2 users which are like HR51 to tackle the final form while me and GK attack from the ship. Try to shoot the tusks with the batisa. In the first part of the battle when it attacks or looks like it is going to attack go to the otherside of where it is attacking.All of its attacks miss I've found.Cannon balls when close and the battasa if far. I think that is it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 25, 2010, 06:14:52 PM
Yeah, I should be on. I'll have to remember go offline to finish farming & restock some supplies first.

I actually used my second strongest weapon. Comes with a lower affinity penalty while it boosts my defense.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on June 25, 2010, 06:39:58 PM
You don't need anyone to be at 51. I've done it with no one in their 40s yet. If you know what you are doing it will be fine. You might only drive it away, but you still win.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on June 25, 2010, 07:46:23 PM
They seemed to be hungry for blood, Stratos. Not sure driving it away will calm this mob.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 25, 2010, 07:58:49 PM
Stratos all I am saying is that having at least 2 people at or above HR51 will give that person access to the best weapons and armor.So the quest will get done faster.The 2 HR51 or higher can tackle Jhen in the second stage and make things go quicker. Just stating the most ideal situation.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 25, 2010, 07:59:29 PM
I don't care if you kill it, drive it away, or offer to be its parent, I just want this fight to end as soon as possible. It takes entirely too long.

Unless you have a powerful dragon or ice weapon, you're better off using the ballista and cannons, especially during the final showdown. You don't need to have high-rank people in order to win, but they can help speed up the battle because they have better armour and strong weapons.

No one else seemed to be on so I tried to solo the double ludroth mission. Was doing pretty well despite the fact I forgot to bring most of my supplies with me so I had to live off the land. I died with both monsters tales and manes ruined and they were both limping a lot. Pity.

The High Sieglinde.

Do I start with the Valkyrie Blade or the Jawblade?

I'm sorry last night didn't go so well, everyone! I'm not really sure what happened to us... maybe we were just tired? Let's not give up though, we can't let that stupid dragon have the last laugh!

Post by: BeautifulShy on June 28, 2010, 07:31:54 PM
Hmm I was drinking some tea last night so maybe I was too relaxed.

To get the High Sieglinde do I start with the Jawblade or Valkyrie Blade?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on June 28, 2010, 07:49:48 PM
It doesn't really matter, they are both within the same weapon tree. The Valkyrie Blade is higher up though, if you have the materials for it.

Have you used a Greatsword before? They're pretty slow and clunky. You might want to try one out and decide if it's a weapon you want to handle.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on June 28, 2010, 07:56:01 PM
I used the Great Sword a few times.I think I even used one in the arena with you.They probably work better for Large monsters I would think.

Edit: just looked at the materals needed and the Valkyrie Blade needs Rathian materials so I think we should try to beat that monster so Stratos can complete the quest and for me to get some materals.

Sweet, just got done. Took longer than I expected, but I'm online now. Pity I couldn't play with you again though.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 01, 2010, 11:05:14 PM
Well I am getting on. I usually get on at this time on weekdays. So yeah I still need a Rathian Plate.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 02, 2010, 04:42:42 AM
I'll be on in a bit if anyone else still is. I don't have work tomorrow so I'm not too worried about going to bed at a reasonable hour.

We could try the 4 star urgent some more, Maxi. You need Rathian flesh and I want Rathalos flesh so it's a win-win situation...so long as we don't get pwnd by the Raths.

I'm going to adjust my decorations and skills to try and get immunity to gusts because between the two of those guys it gets pretty annoying. I want to get an immunity to their roars as well.

If nothing else we can lop off their tails and run. You can get plates from tails. I've gotten them that way for both of the Raths.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 02, 2010, 04:46:25 AM
Maxi and I are on, along with someone else from my list. Maxi just got his plate, but the four of us should be able to do your urgent. We just have to leave if both dragons are in the same area.

9 hours I played?!? Uh yeah getting the materals took a while.And helped get Stratos up to HR40.Next up Ingot+ armor. Will not survive Rank 5 with Jaggi + armor.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on July 02, 2010, 11:18:26 AM
Yeah, I may just recreate the armor sets I had in the lower rank quests. I liked what their abilities did the first time around, it's just that their defense no longer holds any more. On the downside that means more Qurupeco for me...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 02, 2010, 07:24:02 PM
I need Firecells. Lots and lots of Firecells. Then my Rath armor will be complete with matching longsword.

Also turns out I need another Rathian Ruby. I have one but I need two total for my sword upgrade.

I'm gonna be on in a little bit if anyone wants to join me. I'm planning on doing a good deal of gathering. I need to restock on general supplies.

Nah Shaymin. A lot of us don't mind going back to help out other club members catch up. Besides, if you play online a lot you'll find yourself climbing up pretty fast. I got the game at launch & Maxi came online a bit later yet he's past me by several HR levels.

Around the time you posted Mop it Up I had just decided to call it a night. Opps.

Not at all! I'm perfectly okay helping people through the low-rank stuff. Like GK said, a few others are fine with it too. My only advice is to play the single-player for a couple of hours, to learn how the game works. Once you've done the first capture quest, that's a good time to start playing online.

S'alright, mate. I'm just glad you're still playing! So many members have disappeared...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on July 04, 2010, 03:22:41 PM
Dunno how they were able to put this game down. This reminds me of Animal Crossing except instead of people wanting me to deliver mail or kick a soccer ball to them, I get to routinely kill giant monsters & farm their remains to aid in killing even bigger monsters. Oh...& occasionally deliver stuff.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 04, 2010, 03:23:19 PM
As others have mentioned it can be pretty quick to level up. I haven't even had the game one month and I am HR44. I did play through all of the Rank 1 quests for offline before jumping online Shaymin.

Oh Shaymin add your online info to the FC section. We might not know who you are if you just hop online and join us.We might think you are a random.

Someone else in this thread hasn't added that info so I have no idea who that person is online.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 04, 2010, 03:28:25 PM
Another title for this game could have been "Animal Crossing Off My List."

Oh dear, I just thought of something. I recall Shaymin mentioning not living in the US. Do you still live in North America? Because if not, we can't play together, because this game is region-restricted. Unless you happen to own a North American system and game.

Post by: Stratos on July 04, 2010, 09:21:32 PM
Well, weren't Killer Man Jaro and KDR wanting people to play with? They are both in Europe.

Actually, on second though, I recall Shaymin saying they lived in Canada, though I could be crazy.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on July 04, 2010, 11:33:50 PM
Not everyone here has WiiSpeak so that's ok. Some members prefer running out & buying a USB keyboard to type with.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 05, 2010, 03:04:39 AM
I like having both.

You could probably find one on the cheap online. They were going for 10-15 in some places here last I looked. Or buy Endless Ocean new. It has a bundle where it comes for free with it.

Wonderful! I hope to see you around then. Don't worry about the WiiSpeak, I can think of only a few people who have one, and even less who actually use it. Stratos is really the only one who likes it. You should get one just to talk to him, he needs someone to talk with, I feel bad.

Any USB keyboard will work, too.

Well, weren't Killer Man Jaro and KDR wanting people to play with?
I'm not sure if Killer_Man_Jaro has the game. I remember that the main reason he wanted it was to join the club, and once he found out about the region limitations, I think he passed on the game.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 06, 2010, 04:35:38 AM
He might change his mind or buy it on the cheap if other PAL-Land folk here have the game. So it's good for him to know they are here and willing to play so he can have the option.

I'm going to be online shortly if anyone cares to join me. I'll mostly be on the hunt for Raths.

Rath farming seems to be pretty popular lately. At first I thought it was just some members here but lately when I go into the veteran places the rooms are hunting upper rank Rathian over & over. Not that I mind of course though despite all of the times doing that mission I'm still unable to put together a single Rath+ part.

He doesn't use the Wii Speak though, because everyone's asleep in his house. He doesn't even have it plugged in anymore.

GK used to have a Wii Speak too, but he also stopped using it.

Do hurry, we need you for this quest!
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on July 07, 2010, 04:15:18 AM
I still use wii speak. Didn't know removing the channel to my SD card turned it off. Had to make room for a recent Wiiware purchase.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on July 07, 2010, 01:21:44 PM
Channel's back on the Wii menu so WiiSpeak should be back on...

Oh geez... found that Phantom Uragaan music on youtube & now it's stuck in my head.

You guys ever catch one after I left? I remember Mop it Up wanted to capture it but no one had tranqs when we went after it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Sundoulos on July 07, 2010, 01:51:39 PM
I actually stopped using WiiSpeak because I started having a weird feedback issue  on occasion when playing with some other people that use WiiSpeak.  I don't have my mic next to my tv speakers, either, so I'm not sure what the problem was.

Mop It Up is right.   The way our house is set up, the bedrooms are next to the living room area where the television is set up.  I'm scared that if I talk to loud or turn up the volume too much, I'll wake someone up.  That's why I wish Nintendo had thought to include a headset alternative to Wii Speak.  (I did try a nice Logitec USB headphone set, as someone suggested mentioned near the beginning of the thread, but the particular brand I bought didn't seem to work.   I should have tried purchasing the older model that worked on the PS2.

Stratos:  I'd like to go hunting with you again, too, but you stay up way too late for me. :)   Unfortunately, after signing off last night, I couldn't get to sleep (mostly because I'm stressed out by work.)  I'm currently "functioning" with about 1.5 - 2 hrs of sleep.  Bleh.  Needless to say, I won't be back on tonight.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 07, 2010, 08:05:53 PM
You don't need to have the WiiSpeak Channel in order to use WiiSpeak in games. Are you sure it is plugged in securely?

Also, to both of you, only the "M" in my username is capitalized.

Stratos, I'd be up for Rathalos farming if you're after that armour set. I've wanted to have something with the Mind's Eye ability, and that armour is the only set which has it. It would be a lot more difficult to get it from decorations, as it's a 3-slotter. The Rathalos Ruby is only from high-rank Rathalos, and has a 2% chance from tails, 3% from normal rewards, and 4% from breaking its face. So this is going to take a while...

Maxi, are you going to let Barioth slap you around like that? We must exact our revenge!
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 07, 2010, 09:32:54 PM
I'd like to do the dual rath mission some for farming as well because I need a Rathian Ruby and a Rathian Spike + for my complete Rathalos+ Armor and Wyvern Blade upgrade.

Sounds like Jaggi Masks and lots of piggie snuggling will be a must if were to get some of these drops in our lifetime.

I might be one later tonight.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 07, 2010, 10:05:18 PM
We can do the double dragon one if you want, but I think it has less chance of rare items than the single hunts (plus we tend to have bad luck with that one).

I don't like the Jaggi Mask because then I won't have the skills from my armour. And I've got some nice skills!
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 07, 2010, 10:17:53 PM
I read on other forums that the rare item rate is higher on the double missions.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 07, 2010, 10:41:27 PM
I'm looking into it, I haven't really found anything on it yet. In my experience I always get worse stuff on the double ones. But this game deals with random number generators, and so luck varies greatly from person to person.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 07, 2010, 11:04:23 PM
Ok I am getting back on now.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 07, 2010, 11:10:58 PM
Okay I looked it up, and I was sort of right.

You can't get Rath Rubies in the quest rewards of the lvl 5 Double Trouble quest, so the only chance we'd have of getting them there is the 2% one from tail carves. There is a lvl 6 version featuring tougher Rath twins that gives rubies, but obviously we can't do that one yet, so we are better off fighting Rathian and Rathalos individually.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 07, 2010, 11:19:50 PM
Ah, well, 2% is better chances than some. LOL

You get more rewards for capturing a monster, right? May want to put the Raths to bed instead of killing them to increase your odds in landing those parts you need.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 08, 2010, 01:59:55 AM
Good thoughts. I'm hopping on shortly.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 08, 2010, 02:44:38 AM
We have a slot open if you are still interested.

Capturing is a good idea. I think it gives you three more rewards, which is the same number as carves that you would have had if you killed it. But you get different things in rewards, so it would give more chances for rubies.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 08, 2010, 10:32:34 AM
Okay on Saturday and Sunday I will be helping hunters under HR31 to try to get them up to High Rank. I have 2 people I have already coming so that leaves 1 more under HR31 hunter to come. If nobody fills that spot that is under HR31 than I would like someone at least as high as me. Which is HR45.

S'alright, mate. I'm just glad you're still playing! So many members have disappeared...

Just stopping by to let you know why you have not seen me online in Tri.

My three year old Wii crashed a few weeks ago.  I drove up to Nintendo (only 30 minutes from me) with the Wii wrapped in a Spock burial robe to see if they could resurrect it or at very least recover my data.  An hour and half later the tech gave me the bad news.  They couldn't recover any of my data (game saves, Mii's, message board, photo channel images, friends in address book, game stats history).

They ended up providing me with a new Wii, a year warranty and no charge on the repair.

So, I lost quite a bit of data.  Many game saves that I failed to back up to SD card.  But, most saddening was the fact that I had lost the many game saves that Nintendo doesn't allow to be saved to SD card (Monster Hunter Tri, Smash Bros Brawl, The Conduit, Endless Ocean and I think Mario Kart to name a few).

I had around 120 hours invested in Tri and I just can't see my self starting over from scratch and building up a new character again.

I really enjoyed hanging out with many of you.  Well, see ya around and perhaps I'll meet up with some of you in other online games down the road.

That's just upsetting. I hope you underscored the issue that a lot of your data was lost permanently because it could not be backed up. Ridiculous that it doesn't let you save something. This might be a long shot, but perhaps you could contact Capcom with your codes and hunter ID and maybe they could create some type of new account for you? If not the same one maybe they could create a new character for you at a similar level with one set of your gear and a weapon?

If you ever do decide to try and restore your status the long way count me in for the grindfest.

That's awesome that you live close to Nintendo HQ! I do too, but they have never allowed tours. It was cool to drive by them as a kid. You should have requested an opportunity to shop in their company store. Maybe they would have been nice to you because of your lost data.

Hey Neighbor!  I guess I should of asked for some Nintendo plushies - they had a whole bin full of them.  I was in a state of shock, so didn't really know what to think at the time.

Nintendo really needs to improve their data management policies and allow the consumer to be able to save ALL their data for backup (or just automatically save it in Nintendo cloud storage). There should be a built-in utility that auto saves all data to SD card - similar to what the techs use.

I suspect they prevent online game save data from being saved to SD card as they are afraid of hackers modifying the data (pretty sure hackers have found a way around this anyway).  Limiting data backup for the legitimate consumer is NOT the correct approach to counter hackers.

That's a real shame. I can understand why you wouldn't feel like playing anymore after that; I doubt I would, either. It was enjoyable while it lasted!

I suspect they prevent online game save data from being saved to SD card as they are afraid of hackers modifying the data (pretty sure hackers have found a way around this anyway).
Actually, I think it has to do with friend codes. Bad things could happen if two systems log online with the same code.

There are a select few online games which allow you to copy their data, but will delete the online portion from the copy. Who knows why they aren't all this way. In any case, there's an unofficial way to backup your data, if you're interested... though it would void your warranty.

Lower level Rathians aren't much of a threat to hunters with +armor, especially if the hunters bring antidotes.  The only monster I can see this not working too well with is Diablos, because Diablos is the devil (appropriate name, eh?).  Why not give it a test run sometime?  The most that's lost is a few zenny and a pitiful number of HR points, which are probably irrelevant to most folks at this point anyways.

It was another connection death Sundoulos, no biggy. I didn't mind the chatting you guys were doing & I didn't want to break up your team just for my own grinding. Looks like we only had 5 of us playing so someone had to be left out.

To be able to efficiently hunt & chat would be pretty fun. I guess someone could flee from the monster, post then come back & let the person they were talking to leave & respond. It would be as if we were Monster Hunter under the Freebird Rule.

Post by: noname2200 on July 16, 2010, 01:24:05 PM
Understandable; aside from the bowgun I think the Lance is the most-different (...) of the weapons.  I will say this though: you can either play it defensively like you're "supposed to" or you can get the Evasion abilities and play it much more aggressively, with very little blocking involved.  I much prefer the latter, but I'm in the minority.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 16, 2010, 01:28:17 PM
Yeah with the lance it pays to know what the monster is going to do so you can anticipate it and be ready to sidestep, Block, or use the counterattack. Also it helps to know the safe areas around a monster so you can quickly attack after the monster has done its attack.

I try to be evasive and defensive based on the situation.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 16, 2010, 07:08:13 PM
You don't need to be so defensive with a lance if you learn the timing of the instant block (R + A). Then you can keep attacking until you see the monster attack, then quickly block, and resume. You can stay a lot closer to a monster than you can with most other weapons so you can cause a lot of damage with it.

  That's pretty much how the hammer goes since it has no defensive   capabilities short of stunning the monster before it attacks if you're   lucky(or boosted your ability to stun). That means us hammer users have   to spend a lot of time at the head where it's the most dangerous. You have   to rely on knowing when to stop attacking & move out of its way.

Post by: Stratos on July 17, 2010, 07:33:16 PM
I hope that the problem is easily fixed. We've already lost Seacor to Wii issues.

I know I had a similar issue with my Gamecube. It's one of the things that pushed me to get a Wii when I did. I never did fix the problem but I believe that the laser was the root of the problem. Since Wii is a slot entry device I'm not sure if there is an easy,r cheap and/or non-intrusive-warranty-breaking way to clean it.

I hope you hadn't already hacked your Wii like you talked about doing. Though then again, maybe having backups of your Tri and other game data will be a plus at this point.

~
On a game related note, I hooked up with some randoms last night and ended up playing until 7am my time! One or two were flakes but we ended up near the end with a pretty good group. One of them, named Lisa, got to level 50 so we decided to face Alrateon. Almost beat it too but everyone dies...except for me! ;D Did get a plate and scale from his tail though along with some awesome tactics to face it. One guy in the group at the end had beaten it before and he said we had almost downed it.

I also finally got the two royal crest + I've been hunting for so I got my spiral lance upgraded to the max. Are there any other water lances because I would like something a bit more pleasant color-wise. I wish there was a water long sword.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on July 17, 2010, 08:57:40 PM
I think if the lens were dirty then this would've happened a lot more progressively instead of all of the sudden. It has to be a mechanical issue, such as the lens becoming unaligned, or the motor wearing out, or something.

It's hacked, but it won't be an issue. All that does is void the warranty, which isn't still in effect anyway. The Homebrew Channel is nothing illegal so it won't cause Nintendo to refuse to repair it. All they would do is delete it and update to 4.3, though I would delete it anyway before sending it off. But I'm not sure I want to go the route of repair. The system is already two and a half years old, and I can envision another problem coming up in a year's time (such as the internal memory becoming corrupted, which I hear is a common issue with heavily-used systems). I'm seriously considering buying a new system instead, especially because it now includes Wii Sports Resort, which I don't yet have, or 4 Wiimotes/Nunchuks.

Don't worry, since it's a disc-related issues then my data is okay. I've got it backed up on my computer so I should be able to restore it in case of a freak accident in the repair. I guess if I bought a new system, I would be trusting that this program would be able to successfully load my old system's data onto it. And really, that's the only thing making me think twice about buying a new one, because I'm not certain it'll work.

I really wanted to be there with you, Stratos, when you fight Alatreon. The real fight, not just a practice run like we did (and I will admit that I wasn't giving it my all during that). I s'pose it'd be too much to ask you to wait for me, especially because I don't know when I'll be able to play again.

A little trick GK if you start a quest then abandon it the list may change so that a quest that you needed appears. I usually go on the gathering quest then abandon it.

Thanks for the heads up. Have a missing quest or two on 3 star so I may get around to those as well.

Yes I got the 2 Rathlos plates that I need to finish my armor. Now I have Rathlos + armor. Any skills I should have to go along with that.I am thinking a more offensive set using the switchaxe or longsword. I know I am going to gem it so that I get rid of that defense down skill.

Oh also for those HR30 and lower I will be opening a room in 30 mins to help you.

Ok when you get online check you profile and it will give you a name and number.The name is of your choosing and the number is so that if there is more people with your name that way we know it is you.
So post those in the FC topic for Monster Hunter Tri.

I thought about getting that armor set at one time but using that chest plate with everything else from Rathian makes a pretty cool custom when you play around with the decorations. I love Earplugs myself.

I'm probably going to make the set more attack oriented in nature. Probably using a switchaxe with it.

Post by: Sarail on July 20, 2010, 09:59:40 AM
No prob! I got online with some random guys, took out a Great Baggi several times (I had never fought Great Baggi before!... or been to the Tundra for that matter), and finished up some more Rank 2 quests.  I think I have four more rank 2 quests left to do.  Hopefully I can get those finished this week.  Ready to start rank 3 missions.

Oh, I'm also working on the Baggi armor set, too.  Looks cool.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 20, 2010, 10:09:54 AM
I never had the Baggi set. I had considered it early on when I was getting armor for all the elements. For all the resistances of elements but was informed that only one monster had ice attacks. Barioth that saber tooth dragon which I don't like fighting unless I have a lance.

Let us know how it works out!

I'm stuck at HR30 but the urgent hasn't shown up.  Is this normal?  Do you have to complete all the 3* quests before it shows up?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 20, 2010, 11:40:46 AM
I think you have to complete all normal quests.I don't think you have to complete the advance quests.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Sundoulos on July 20, 2010, 06:48:29 PM
There is a subset of them that you have to complete.  The key quests listed at that level are: We Need a Hero, Into the Danger Zone, The Creeping Venom, The Bard's Barioth, and To Catch an Uragaan.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: apdude on July 20, 2010, 07:18:59 PM
I think the only one I'm missing from that list is to cap an Uragaan.  I've never seen him limp he just rolls around till he's dead.  Should be fun.

A good time to try capturing him is when he retreats to Zone 5 (I think: it's the one in the center of the map where he goes up to the mesa that you can't reach).  That usually means he's out of stamina, so if you've been whomping on him consistently his health should be almost gone as well.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

For an easier time capturing, you could get the Capture Guru skill, which can be gained by getting +10 Perception. If a monster is paintballed (or if you have Auto-Tracker), the icon on the map will flash when the monster is ready to be captured.

Another way to tell is if the monster goes to sleep. If Uragaan goes to area 6 (which is the place noname2200 was talking about), wait a bit outside the area and see if it goes to sleep - this is the area where it will if it is weak.

Don't worry, Mop it up, I'm only 47 so I don't even have my urgent available yet. There is still time.
Excuse me, I misread your post. I thought you said that you, yourself, reached 50, but it seems you meant that the person you were with, Lisa, is the one who reached it.

I'll be there afterall. Connection loss just milliseconds before Lagiacrus could land a fatal blow. The 2 guys I was with had already died once each so that death would have ended the quest & might have stuck if the connection drop was any later.

Kytim I still didn't get a chance to friend you yesterday.

I just killed Qurupeco and unlocked Royal Ludroth. I have not beat him R. Ludroth, nor Gobul yet and I am still stuck in the flooded forest. I have not unlocked the Tundra or Volcanoe levels yet, though. I would like to hunt with all of you on the online mode and raise my HR and gain some items, armor and weapons to help me on the offline modes.
 
Maxi, from what you saw of me on the missions last night, I do not stand a chance against the coming boss battles even if I do defeat R. Ludroth and Gobul on my own. I need stronger weapons and armor. In fact, when we hunted the R. Ludroth last night I was able to upgrade my weapon to a Royal Swordafter carcing the Royal Ludroth. I want to upgrade my Hunter Rank as high as possible and  gather items from defeated monsters.
 
Also, I carved the R. Ludroth tail by mistake when he killed me during the fight, Maxi. I would love to hunt again with any of you. I go by the name of "Trunks."

Is there any way to use wii speak on this game's online mode?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 28, 2010, 05:07:18 PM
Yes you can use Wii Speak in the games online mode. I do have Wii Speak though and I think it would be quicker while helping you out since when typing I kinda have to just run around and type with one hand while using the other to move around trying to avoid the monster.

Armor and weapons I will get back to you on that shortly since certain weapons can be helpful against certain monsters.

Sorry about the comment about the carving the tail. Mop it up always kept on telling me that when I carved in front of monsters so I guess it rubbed off on me.

For Royal Ludroth and Gobul it is best to have a fire weapon. The fire Long sword and the Quepeco hammer are good to have. Also it would be nice to try out the Iron Lance.I have it fully upgraded and it helped me alot. Armor for armor it is probably best to have armor with good defence early on so you can take hits well while learning the monsters patterns. I tried out getting armor that has elemental strength against certain types. Royal Ludroth is one that I used I think at least up to Rank 3 quests. then I switched to a fire resistant armor for the fire areas then an electric resistant armor.

Oh search Monster Hunter Wiki on Google and there is tons of info there about weapons and armor as well as lots of other things.

The game only lets you fork over Rare1 items like potions, rations, steaks, etc. Pretty sure Dragonite is well out of the running.
It lets you give anything with a rarity rating of 1, 2, or 3. Basically, anything which can be used for forging is 4 or higher, as is some of the better consumable items like ancient potions and traps.

Sorry about the comment about the carving the tail. Mop it up always kept on telling me that when I carved in front of monsters so I guess it rubbed off on me.
Yeah, sorry, it's my only pet peeve. Accidents happen though, I certainly wouldn't deny that I've accidentally hit the button to carve, or that I wasn't thinking and got caught up in the moment. Maybe I shouldn't play so late...

I have really dead ended as far as armor upgrades go.

This is my problem right now.  I have TONS of monster carvings... but they're those of Great Jaggi, Qurapeco, and Barroth.  I haven't fought Lundroth as much as I've wanted to, and the only full armor sets I have are the Great Jaggi Gunner set, and the Barroth blade set.

I'd really like to hunt Rathian quite a few times so I can get that full armor set.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 28, 2010, 07:21:48 PM
Bone and alloy armors.
Bone and Alloy have the same defence so it comes down to skills and resistances. Alloy probably has the better of the two early on.
I'd go with Alloy armor for now.Maybe once you beat Royal Ludroth a few times you can get that armor.

It's ashame because I like the way the hunter's armor that I am currently using looks kind of cool to me.  I am kind of embarrased by how much I have progressed in the game.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on July 28, 2010, 07:38:39 PM
Once you get some armor spheres use them to upgrade your armor of choice.
 
Also, add decorations if there are slots on your armor and weapons to get special skills. Only choose one skill you want and gem for that as you need a minimun of 10 skill points for it to be worthwhile.

I like to taunt the monster sometimes by carving it's tail in it's face. I'm mean like that.  ;D

And I'm off this Friday and Saturday so I'll probably be on a lot then.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 28, 2010, 07:45:40 PM
Yeah upgrading your armor can help as far as defense goes. I think I had a ingot armor like up to 4 when I got up to HR31 and it helped with the early high rank quests till I got a + armor.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on July 28, 2010, 07:58:10 PM
I have hunter's armor with decorations up to twelve. All of my armor can not be upgraded without armor sphere plus and that is why I need dragonite ore. I need that ore to further my defenses. I have the Royal Claw as my weapon and I just bought a lance and upgraded it. I plan to practice a little offline. I plan to pause offline play except for building up items and plan to play online to build up other stuff, too.

True, that can be fun. Though I think wearing the monster's skin and flaunting it in its face is enough.

There are a couple of times when I think it's acceptable, and that's if there won't be enough time to get the tail after the quest is complete. For example, Alatreon's body can be carved six times, and its tail two times. It isn't possible to carve eight times in a minute, so you'll miss the tail if you don't get it during the fight.

Yeah, what Mop it up said.

If you're going to stick with the Hunter armor because it looks cool(& it does, I must admit) better make sure to pack defense boosting items like adamant seeds & just about anything that combines with 'em along for your quests. Don't forget to get a good meal too, you'll need it.

Hunter armor's abilities are pretty neat & all but its defense doesn't really hold up in the long run.

Before you start the game plug in Wii Speak into your Wii. Then start the game. Before going into online check if Wii Speak is on in the options. Then head online and your Wii Speak should turn on.
That is it.

Have you reached HR9 yet? You have to be HR9 before lvl 2 opens. Also, Lagiacrus and Dragonite Ore are both lvl 3 stuff.

In addition to what Maxi said, note that only people who have a Wii Speak themselves can hear you. If someone has a little yellow megaphone icon next to their name, it means they have Wii Speak active.

Upper rank Lagiacrus is brutal. The lower rank Lagi armor is nearly useless & he's a bit more aggressive than before in my opinion. Luckily it was a rare occasion that I brought a trap & tranq bombs along to capture him since the other two attempts by my partners failed.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 30, 2010, 05:02:03 PM
I used Ingot+ armor.I gemmed in Fire resistance and Dragon resistance as well. I use it because of the strong thunder resistance.
I think at High rank Laggi has a new electric attack which has more range than previously. I used my Fire Long sword on it.I usually use my Lance with that armor since the lance gives me more defence.

Yeah, I use my fire longsword on it myself. That's the main reason why I still use the lower rank armor due to its element attack boost ability. I can't take much damage but at least I can still dish it out.

Unfortunately while I did cap one most of the items weren't upper rank stuff so only the gloves were upgraded to + levels now. Have to find some hunters willing to farm that thing a few times. Lately everyone I've come across wants Gobul parts...

I am so close to have a barroth armor for my hunter. All I need is  two Monster Bone L. In fact, I need two more of those to upgrade my hammer.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on July 31, 2010, 10:49:56 PM
That is a pretty good armor to have. It is only weak to ice attacks.Also has strong thunder resistance.

We will get those Barroth parts.

Edit:I tried to fight Deviljho on my own today and it really didn't work to well. That is fine though since it was a scouting quest.
I learned a few things. His bite makes my defense go down so I need some skill that can make me not suffer from defense reduction. Its roar can be a problem.So I need earplugs as a skill. Also its stomp can cause tremors so I need the skill tremor proof. Also is there a Dragon or thunder lance? I think I would work best fighting Deviljho with a Lance.

Is there some combonation of armor sets and gems that make this work out?

That attack lowering is Dragonblite. Try bringing along Dragonfell Berries to cure the effects.

I have earplugs but I forget if they worked Deviljho. Some monsters like Diablos & Jhen Moran(when he's up close in phase 2) require HG earplugs.

A few things what do I have to put into so that I get HG Earplugs? Also how do I get tremor proof?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 01, 2010, 01:48:26 AM
The skill for Earplugs is Hearing. +10 Hearing gives Earplugs, +15 gives HG Earplugs. The Helios armour has this ability.

The skill for Tremor Proof is Tremor Res. The Diablos armour has it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 01, 2010, 03:22:54 AM
Hmm Diablos armor has one drawback. It has Elemental attack down.

While Helios has 3 disadvantages. it isn't really that strong in Dragon resistance.It has -15 I think.

What about the Dober armor? It has strong Dragon resistance and  It I think has enough slots for geming in both skils I think.

How well does Barroth armor stand up against R. Ludroth, Gobul, Lagiacrus, Rathian and Barroth?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 01, 2010, 04:37:58 PM
Let's see, Barrath Armour has -15 ice and +15 thunder. So it'd be pretty average against all of those except Lagiacrus, as none of them use ice attacks. Only Lagiacrus uses thunder attacks, so it would be good to have against it.

I want the entire set of Barroth armor. I also need one flint and one flame sac to upgrade my hammer's fire element to 350. I am also going to restock as many healing and trap items before I take on Royal Ludroth on my own on offline mode. Maxi, the flame sac means that we will have to hunt a Ratholos or Rathian, and I would prefer to do that with two more hunters.
 
How would my flame hammer work against R. Ludroth, Gobul, Gigginox and Lagiacrus?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 02, 2010, 01:32:28 PM
They are all weak to fire so it should work.
With the hammer you can't cut any tails or something like that.
For Royal Ludroth you want to keep your sharpness up so your hammer doesn't bounce of the spounge.

Gobul you will have to work on its head and watch and see if its body gets bigger and try not to hit its body then.
Gigganox it works well but since you have to be close to it you have to watch for its poison attacks and not hit it constantly or you will be poisoned. It can also have many ways to stall you when poisoned. Jump on the ceiling and do its roar.

For Laggi you have to try to try to set up your hammer attacks earlier since it moves quickly. under belly and back are your targets.

Rathlos and Rathian have good resistance to fire so your hammer isn't going to do much. Dragon and thunder are its weakness. Switch axes work well for both. Especially at cutting their tails.

When we were hunting the Great Baggi the other night, I ran into the Gigginox, but it was more like an ambush. I was using the hunter's armor and one single attack moved my health from maximum to nearly depleted.
 
I would like to hunt the Royal Ludroth online tonight and maybe the Quropeco again too to get a flint stone. I would also like to hunt a Rathian as well, but with two more people. Laslty, I want to complete my Barroth armor set before I try to beat the monsters on offline mode. I need to be strong enough to beat Gobul on my own.
 
Also, long swords are not available to me. I would not mind getting one though. Possibly flame based for mobilities sake because the hammer I am using is good, but it slows me down against faster enemies. This is why I was having trouble with Barroth last night. 
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 02, 2010, 04:51:01 PM
With faster enemys it is possible to get in hammer strikes you just have to get their pattern down and movement down so you can be in position to hit them with super pounds. Oh super pounds are used by holding down R till you get a full charge, stop moving then releasing R. If you keep moving and release R you will get the spin attack.

I think we should work on getting your armor done first.Then tackle Royal Ludroth and co.

I wouldn't recommend using a hammer in underwater battles... I at least know it always gives me trouble. Dodging seems so slow underwater, and the monster can come at you from so many different angles. At least, prepare to take a beating if you use one underwater.

I lured R. Ludroth onto land and beat the stink off of him with my hammer. I might look into getting a fire switch axe or something. I made short work of Peco today as well.

Link vs Gobul. Who would win?

Indeed. I used to use Plume Flint on Royal Ludroth before I got my hands on a fire longsword & upgraded the hammer towards paralysis. I've taken more than my fair share of hits while under water. It's a tad safer to strike at the mane or position yourself to hit at the head from the side. From there you can try & dash-swim away if he decides to turn & face you.

Earlier today I was playing the Hot Deal event quest and I tell ya it was a close finish.

 We I think captured the first Akanotor then I think I died making it 2 deaths for the quest. I was asked to wait at base while the 3 Great Sword users weakened down the second Akanotor. I transported them some Ration,Cool Drinks and First Aid-Meds. Then there was like 5 mins left and I was asked to get close to them so I can carve. There was like 2 mins left when I got near them and gave them some Cool Drinks.Akanotor was in area 10 so we rushed to there. The plan was that the 3 were going to do their 3 stage charge attack at the same time but it didn't work that way. Now there was like 1 min left and Ankotor was underground and we were worrying.It surfaced with 30 seconds left and we managed to beat it in time.
I got enough tickets for the Sinister Saint Switch axe but need 1 wyvern stone.

Oh you can get the tickets if you beat one than end via subquest.

That's cool that you agreed to hold back like that.

Was with a guy that wanted to do Gigginox RX with just me with him. I assumed he knew what he was doing since he was ready to go with just the two of us. Dude came & died 3 times over. What a waste of potions & an antidote...

I was one of those guys who got killed a whole lot, bit I am improving since I upgraded my weapons and armor. I can not handle Rathian/Rathalos at all though. Gobul is still a little tough, too.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 03, 2010, 01:35:20 PM
Giganox can be a problem if you aren't prepared.I guess you could say that for every monster though. Thats usually why I take so long to get ready. Each Monster has different things you need to worry about.

Yeah with Rathian you need to attack when they give you a chance to.Also with certain weapons you can only do so many hits on them before you have to get out of there.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 03, 2010, 01:39:03 PM
It takes time & the right gear. Everyone dies early on but after a while, once you buy more armor & weapons those same monsters won't seem as tough. Have to admit, I'm still not a fan of fighting Gobul. He's worse than R. Ludroth underwater in my opinion & is more prone to go in the water. At least Lagiacrus often goes from water to land, making the fight easier as it goes on.

I hear that though recently I've ran into impatient hunters that would actually give a 5 second countdown then start the quest without you if you're taking "too long" getting your items ready. Did it once & left a guy behind & in the following quest I rushed & forgot something(hot or cold drink, I forget). After that I left town.

When Deviljho shows up I paintball it then I run to another area till at least one leaves the area.  Deviljho isn't fun to fight.

Yeah, I've seen a few people paint ball him. I think my partner died trying to make a run for it as I went back the way we came & he ran in another direction.

The whole thing wasn't a total waste of potions though. Got a free Gaiasp from a shard & did some mining before the fight started.

I have already made it to Hunter Rank fifteen. I have a capture Rathian mission and a few egg collecting missions left in my Level 2 set of quests. The next urgent mission that will put me in Level 3 is a Lagiacrus hunt. I really want to fight this guy and onece he become available, I want to hunt him regularly to build the Lagiacrus armor. Like Gobul and R. Ludroth, I need to fight him on  land and not the water for my peco hammer to be effective against him in the battle. Also, I need five machelite ores to build a gobul long sword that has paralysis as an elemental attack. I also nearly have the entire Barroth armor set, but I have Rathian waist armor. I need armor sphere pluses to upgrade my armor further, which means I have to fight in the volcano.

I got a new water hammer and a poison sword and shield. I managed to poison one of the two Royal Ludroth in that event quest. Need to fight low Rank Giganox more for poison sacs to upgrade it.

I managed to break Barroth's head with it with a well timed super pound.

I will go after Lagi's chest with my peco hammer and try to avoid fighting him in the water the best that I can and let you and whoever else(Rachtman) to lure him back onto land. If that is okay with all of you? How would my Barroth armor stand against Lagi?

How much is it upgraded your Barroth armor?

As far as waiting for it to get back on land I think if you switch to your para long sword you will have better mobility and can fight with us.

I remember fighting my Rank 2 urgent and I used the para hammer and I did ok other than carting once I think. I had Royal Ludroth armor which isn't the best choice for Lagi. The only way you are going to get better at underwater fighting is just to do it.

The actual Barroth armor needs an advanced armor sphere to advance its defense. All the other parts need a regular armor sphere plus. Basically, they are all in the range of 17 to 21 in defense.

I would like to use traps on the Lagi fight. Pit fall and shock traps are a given. I have plenty of ivy and trap tools. What ever you can muster on your own, I will give my supplies to you so that you can develope them for the fight.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 04, 2010, 06:21:47 PM
You also need spiderwebs for the pitfall trap. Combine ivy and spiderwebs to make net then combine net with traptool to make pitfall trap.
Thunderbugs combined with traptool make shock trap.

Spiderwebs can be gathered on the deserted island.


Hmm you probably need to put in some more defence into it for the fight.If you can gem in some defence gems into the armor. That can be a temporary fix till you can upgrade it. Also get the full Barroth armor. All the skills aren't active unless you have full armor also the resistance isn't as good as it can be if you don't have all the parts.

Don't listen to her, everyone.  After all, Mop it up is the one sporting the avatar of a character who has gender identity issues.

lol.  As I've said before, Wii Speak would be fine if it were actually in a headseat form.  The problem that I usually have to play late at night, and my Wii is set up s next to the bedrooms in the house.  If I turn up the volume too high, I'll wake up my wife and kid; if it's too low, I usually can't hear what is said.  Talking too loud creates the same issue.  The most simple solution was to use a keyboard.

I did buy a nice Logitech USB headset hoping that it would be recognized on the Wii Speak channel (as someone suggested near the beginning of the thread) or at least there would be some option to divert the output to the headset.  Apparently some of the old logitech headset systems would register as a Wii Speak device;  I didn't have any luck with this newer model.  I guess I should get a USB to audio adapter at least so that I can hear at a decent volume.

What do you mean, Maxi? Also, after tonight, I will prbably take a break from the game because I have not been getting much sleep at all in the last few days.

What I meant was that Giganox,Lagiacrus, and Rathlos I think you could handle.

Barioth and Diablos are quick and can kill you quickly.

After tonight try to work on offline things.

I just like the social aspect of online hunting. I also plan to return to offline as soon as I build up my armor(s) and weapons. I want Lagiacrus armor and weapons and Rathalos armor(full set).

Post by: GK on August 05, 2010, 09:27:19 PM
Online hunting of course rocks but yeah, playing offline helps gather materials that you never got around to getting online. Having some monsters appear in the forecast helps you from having to redo old quests & you can quick return to Mogo Village if the going gets tough. Can test out weapons & armor as well as improve tactics too.

That aside, I find hunting offline a good way to gauge how far I've come as a hunter in general.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Maxi, since you are my mentor could you give a progress report on my performance?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 05, 2010, 10:54:25 PM
Hmm you need to work on underwater fights. If you intend to use the hammer underwater you kinda need to know when to attack and when to evade. There is something called hits per turn. A good example of this is Punch Out!! Basically you have a set amount of time to get your hits in before you have to evade. Another part of this is take what the monster is giving you.Don't get Greedy.

It is more important in Monster Hunter because time you are healing is time you could be attacking. Since there is a time limit this gets important at the Rank 3 urgent quest and above HR31. So it would be a good idea to try to work on that before then. Another thing that Monster Hunter has in common is "tells". In Punch Out!! your foe does something before it attacks. Same thing with Monster Hunter. A few examples are Lagiacrus falling back then coiling itself before charging and Rathlos turning its head back before firing a fireball.

Good hunting with you guys.

Stratos I just saw you. I was hunting for Lagi parts. I only need one Lagia Saphire to upgrade my switchaxe. I can upgrade one of the ways but not the other. Power or affenity? I can get the affenty now but I'm not sure yet.

I was watching Predator 2 the other night and at the end when Danny Glover finally kills the Predator in the spaceship and is then confronted by the pack of other Pradators, it kind of reminded me of all of us in our hunting armor. Strange as it sounds, but all the various armor and weapons they use kind of reminds me of Monster Hunter. Second, I wish Capcom would have included a trophy room like the Predator had where the skulls of all the monsters you kill are placed in there as trophies.

What's so gross about mounting the heads of your kills in a trophy room? Would look pretty cool if you asked me. Show them in proper scale according to their size. That way if you bag an exceptionally huge specimen it just dominates the wall.

It would be neat if longest/shortest kills could be shared among friends in the game.

By the way, just checked my notes. Longest thing slain was an Agnaktor that was 3176.2cm. Though I'm guessing the gold crown is a monster's maxed size & the biggest one of those was a 2143.4cm Rathalos.

No, gold doesn't mean it is the largest, but it is close. The Monster Hunter Wiki shows the largest and smallest possible sizes that they can be, and Agnaktor is 3,339.1cm.

Anyways, now that I'm back, let's take a roll call. Who is still an active player? Looking at the previous few pages, it would seem we have:

GK - G K
Kytim89 - TRUNKS
Maxi - Maxi
Mop_it_up - Damsel
Rachtman - Racht
Sundoulos - Sundolos
Stratos - Stratos

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 07, 2010, 07:31:49 PM
It can take a while to get the Bolt axe upgraded fully because you need Lagi+ parts and you can only get those online for High rank.Also need Lagia Sapphire which you get High Rank online. I just upgraded it fully last night. I also have a Sinister Saints Switchaxe.Go me!
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on August 07, 2010, 09:36:49 PM
I have just about upgraded my Barroth armor fully. I took on Lagiacrus on my own and managed to wound his chest and break his horn  with my Peco Flint hammer, but he took me down anyway. I resorted to hit and tactics, but I still need better armor. I have Rathalos armor and would like to complete that set, upgrade my peco flint to a rathalos hammer and get the bolt axe.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 08, 2010, 01:46:45 AM
OK I kinda forgot that today was Saturday so starting in the morning I will be helping out HR30 and lower. 10am PST I will probably open a room.I'll probably be gathering materals for some things that I need to upgrade. So if I am on a quest just wait patently in the room till I get back from the quest.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on August 08, 2010, 02:24:04 PM
Tonight I will make my return to the online arena and I want to hunt Lagiacrus for armor and weapons. I am going to stay away from Uragaan and Diablos until I get a little stronger. I want to focus on Rathalos when I get the Bolt axe and complete my Rathalos armor and upgrade my peco flint again to the red bludgeon.
 
How does Lagiacrus armor stand up against Gobul?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 08, 2010, 04:36:45 PM
Gobul doesn't use lightning attacks, so Lagiacrus armour has no benefit. Gobul has just one elemental attack (water), so whatever set you have with the highest defense is the best choice.

I almost have my Barroth armor fully upgraded. Just a few more advanced armor spheres from Mount Doom(volcano) and I am set. I do want an electric weapon for Gobul. I atleast want the bolt axe upgraded or my peco flint upgraded.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Lagiacus armor has decent water defense as well thus why I didn't bother trying to upgrade my Ludroth set. That plus its elemental attack boosts makes it my armor of choice against Gobul, Royal Ludroth, & Lagiacrus. Just have to remember to bring the right elemental weapon for the job.

Well there was some new event quests. There was a 2 Lagi quest in the Water arena.Thankfully the second one wasn't there at the start. Me,Stratos and Mop it up handle them. There is a weapon you can get from that event quest a Thunder Longsword. I managed to get the 5 tickets needed in that one quest to get it. 50,000 but worth it.

HR40 you need to be.

Rachtman you should come and join us sometime.I'm sure we can help you with the quest.


So it appears we are getting more people back into the game. So that means we need to use the overflow room. It is the usual room but it is city 6.
Also if you are alone in the overflow room message one of us in the main room and I'm sure one of us could join you.

I'm sure you guys can. :) I've enjoyed getting back in to the game lately as I've gone from 50 hours a couple of weeks ago to having played 65 hours now.  For me, that's a lot, considering my full-time work schedule.  So yes, I don't know if I'll be on tonight, but I am definitely going to try to be there tomorrow night for the wi-fi meet-up.

On another note, Lagiacrus was huge. Do later monsters get even bigger? Sheesh.

Sweet, I'm still in the mid-40's. Think I have just a few more key quest left & one or two disappearing/reappearing ones as well. Haven't had much luck finding random hunters willing to do any of them.

Yet I've fought the advanced Agnaktor at least 5 times already...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 10, 2010, 08:55:18 AM
Well I found one group of guys willing to cap Rathalos this morning after searching around for a while. Unfortunately the trio comprised of one decent hunter with what I'm guessing was a water switch-axe, a guy with various armor parts yet no abilities activated(Ingot & something else, I forget), & a guy that had what I think was a Rathalos set minus not wearing any helmet at all & claiming that his only weapon was his fire long sword.

Sufficient to say we didn't capture Rathalos but I did manage to chop the tail off so I got a Rath Medulla out of this disaster.

I try to stick to the Expert server to avoid hunts like this...

Why last night were you using a fire long sword versus Rathlos Stratos?
When we tried to capture Rathlos those 2 times you were using it. I can only imagine that you used it because it was a capture mission and you didn't want to kill it.

Post by: Kytim89 on August 10, 2010, 07:44:01 PM
All right, so who plans to play tonight?

I want to complete my Lagiacrus armor and finally get the bolt axe. This means that we have to atleast fight Lagiacrus two or three times to get the horns. Second, once this is complete, I want to finish off my Rathalos armor. Third, I want to upgrade my peco hammer to the red bludgeon and then fully upgrade my Lagiacrus and Rathalos armor as fully as possible before I go up against the monsters of the Tundra on my own.
 
I would have already had the bolt axe, but I could not pass up the opprotunity to have that armor. Although It was weaker against Lagi than my Barroth armor, which is fully upgraded.

Think his hunter name was cac.

My guess is that he sold everything to pay for the sword. I mean you start out sword & shield so he should at least have that unless he sold it. Either that or he thought it was funny to do stupid stuff like that.

Rathlos and Rathian,Barioth, Lagiacrus. 


Stratos how close are you to HR 50? 1 or 2 levels?



I'm probably going to work on a status up set. I think I saw one a few days ago that had beneba+ and Aknotor+ armor. That might work better than the Giganox+ armor I had thought of as far as resistances.

For some reason the Rathalos quest I wanted to do wasn't available but the advanced version was. Had a good team that made short work of him but after we captured him & I started to mine away at some ore my connection dies & everything goes back to pre quest status. Oh & we hunted yet another Agnaktor before that.

Sorry for bailing so early last night:  I got a call that my sister's car had died and she needed a jump.  Considering what area she was in at the time, I thought it best to make haste.  Ironically, my Wii literally froze right after I typed that.  =^/

I have it and it gives a good Dragon element attack and works well or Rathina/Rathalos when they are weakened to the ground.

Sword and shields work best when you using a sword that fits the elemental weakness. Lugiacrus armor works best with elemental swords. If you don`t have that armor I really wouldn't use them.

I nearly have the full set of Lagiacrus armor. All I need is the helmet, but I need three Lagi horns to forge it. I also need two more horns to craft my bolt axe. As soon as I am finished upgrading my Rathalos armor, I am going to focus on my Lagiacrus armor.
 
All I need is the arm armor for my Rathalos armor to have it complete. I spent some time today upgrading that armor and intend to finish it.
 
Maxi and every one else, here is my plan:
 
I want to finish off both my Rathalos and Lagiacrus armor sets.
 
I want to fully upgrade them both to their maximum setting.
 
I want to upgrade my Peco Hammer to the Red Bludgeon.
 
Finish off my Level 3 quests
 
Stock up on healing items and other needed goods.
 
Once all of this is complete, I intend to take a week off, perhaps two, to rest. This is for real this time and I intend to return to take on the level four quests and upgrade y stuff further.

All right, so who will be online tonight?

It's pretty good against the Rath twins, although it doesn't work so well versus the last couple of monsters in the game. For them, other weapon types would be preferable, if you can handle them.

Jhen Long Sword ftw. Can't wait to get the advanced Jhen mission and upgrade it.
It was there yesterday, I'm not sure if it'll still be there today though.

That's correct. There is no normal high-rank Jhen Morhan quest, it appears only as an event. The event is available every week for two days, and so far it has been either Monday and Tuesday, or Tuesday and Wednesday. If there's a sandstorm blowing? That means Jhen Morhan is in town.

Wow fun times. Me,kytim,Mop it up and thatguy played together for a few. After thatguy and kytim left me and Mop it up tackled Rank 6 quests. I got a ice switchaxe after the 2 Barioth quest.Then we fought Aknotor and Uragaan. Only had 5 mins left when we captured Uragaan.

Now I only have 4 Rank 6 quests left.3 Deviljho quests and 1 two Diablos quest. I would like to finish the Double Diablos first.

Other than that I am working on a status up set. I have my para sword fully upgraded. Poison sword is one stage from upgrading fully.

I am going to go the route of Bhenerba+ and Akanotor+ set I now only need Akanotor+ helm and Vambraces. This will likely be my all purpose status set.

Giganox+ I might use for low rank status use also versus Giganox.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on August 14, 2010, 02:17:59 PM
I want to complete my Rathalos, Barroth and Lagiacrus armor sets and fully upgrade them. I have the Thunder Clap long sword, but the Bolt Axe seems too cool to pass up. I also bought a flame long sword last night and I hope it gives me better flexibility against Lagiacrus.
 
One question, my Lagiacrus armor does  not provide adequate defense against Lagi. Is it because it is not complete? It is not fully upgraded yet and my barroth armor provides better defense.
 
What would have made this game even better is if it had, for example, allowed the Lagiacrus armor to conduct electricity on its own similar to the how Lagi does in battle. The same would for the Rathalos and other armors.
 
I want to start planning a viable defense/offense against Diablos and Uragaan. Those two are the ones that I am having the most trouble with right now. I have a feeling that a good lance is the key to beating these guys.
 
I do like the Rathaian and Diablos armor and might look into getting those after my first three are complete.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 14, 2010, 02:41:05 PM
Yes I just finished my Bhenebra+ and Agnator+ status set. I need to gem out the double poison and maybe add some other skill. Maybe Attack up small.

 It has no numbers that are -10 highest is -8 for water. Dragon is 18.

Well Kytim the more you upgrade your armor the better its defense gets. Since you maxed out you Barroth armor it is going to have greater defense than one not fully upgraded.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on August 14, 2010, 06:05:18 PM
Armor and their speciel abilities:
 
Rathalos Armor: Channel flames through the armor and then fire a concentrated fire ball towards the enemy.
 
Lagiacrus armor: Surge with electrical energy to shock nearby opponents.
 
Barroth Arnor: Sling mud onto nearby enemies.
 
Diablos Armor: Burrow through the ground.
 
Uragann Armor: Wade through lava.

I think I have all the status sword and shields now.Para,Poison and sleep fully upgraded. I got 2 Bird Wyvern gems with Mop it up,GK, and apdude. Then she had to go. Then I checked for a HR Baggi room and got 2 more.Then everybody left and I got my last one in a Jaggi room.

I figured since I was on a roll with getting gems I might as well keep going till I got enough.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 16, 2010, 10:02:38 AM
Those last few hunts had a bit of a handicap for me when the game stopped displaying light effects. Had to guess when my hammer was fully charged during the missions where I used it. But since we have an all status guy among us now it was worth it in the end.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 16, 2010, 10:17:06 AM
Yeah I kinda noticed that not many in our club had status weapons other than the Para hammer. So I wanted to focus on those.
I also saw something on Gamefaqs about what weapon is best at and that status is the sword and shields forte.

I checked the wiki and the Long Sword has a para LS but it only is avalable to awaking users. Don't have Laggi armor yet but I'm thinking Laggi armor would work better with the elemental Long swords.


I've been thinking of maybe getting a sleep lance. Worth it or not?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 16, 2010, 11:43:45 AM
I can understand why the sword & shield would work best for status. Fast attacks mean a higher chance that one of those hits will cause a status change in whatever you're attacking. Even if you can't hit something hard, poisoning it will take a good amount of damage & if it gets paralyzed or put to sleep that leaves it wide open for everyone.

Yeah, I'm sure you've seen me use my fire long sword with Lagi armor more than once. Love that extra elemental punch. Keep those status weapons away from it through.

I'd say get that lance if you don't have any other priorities in the way. I have a number of side projects that I don't really need but think they would be neat additions to my inventory. Like upgrading my Mohran armor that has Sneak & Capture Guru to upper rank levels. Also discovered that I have a talisman that adds +10 snowball/mud protection. I have to register a set with that sometime...
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: apdude on August 16, 2010, 12:11:31 PM
i've got the parasword and shield but I need Gobul + to max it out.  Since my low rank Lagi armor is pretty much worthless in High rank right now I'll probably go back to a status sword insead of elemental.  Too bad I don't have a status armor set yet.  Oh well.  Thanks everyone for helping me farm some + armor so I won't be chugging potions everytime I get hit. 

On a side note.  Should I gem up attack small to attack medium or gem in gormand (not sure what that does)?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 16, 2010, 12:26:31 PM
Gormand I think makes any stamina increasing item heal more stamina. I think it doubles it. So Rations and steaks will heal more stamina. I would go with Attack up M.

As for status armor Bhenebra+ and Giganox+ armor has Status attack up. You can also gem in the status skill to get Status attack up.I gemmed in status attack up into the Jaggi+ armor until I had my current status set.

GK I probably should work on my Thunder Lance since I have to fight Deviljho soon. I almost have it upgraded fully.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 16, 2010, 01:00:58 PM
Is Thunder Deviljho's weakness? Man, I really have to get on that upper rank Lagiacrus. The cap one is always there but kill version comes & goes annoyingly. Just need to upgrade the helmet once more to bring it to +levels & I still have my Lagi Great Sword that has a ways to go.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 16, 2010, 01:05:53 PM
Deviljho has 2 weaknesses.Dragon and Thunder.Dragon is more effective but at the moment I don't have any Dragon Lances.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 16, 2010, 01:43:22 PM
Ahh. I have a Dragon Switch-axe though to be honest I prefer the Great Sword for its charge attack & ability to block. Plus I've noticed that switch-axes seem to lose their sharpness faster than great swords.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 16, 2010, 11:00:22 PM
Are you up for tackling the double Diablos hunt? Once we're done with that, we can fight Deviljho.

Also, wearing the Vangis armour I've been clobbered enough to know that Deviljho is equally weak to both Thunder and Dragon, so use whichever weapon you have with the higher element.

I checked the wiki and the Long Sword has a para LS but it only is avalable to awaking users. Don't have Laggi armor yet but I'm thinking Laggi armor would work better with the elemental Long swords.
It isn't worth it unless you can gem in Awaken. The Lagiacrus armour has Status Attack Down, and although you could cancel it out easily enough, with the available slots there's no way to make it become Status Attack Up.

Plus I've noticed that switch-axes seem to lose their sharpness faster than great swords.
Technically they don't, but it feels that way. Weapons lose sharpness after a certain amount of hits, so the quicker weapons that attack more often will need sharpening sooner. This is why the knife will lose its sharpness quickly and the great sword and hammer will take a while.

I was just browsing for my own last night! Think I know the combination I want though I need to farm Barioth for part of it. If enough of us start bowgunning, we're gonna turn this game into a 3rd person shooter.

Though I do have a Gun Hammer now. That's close, right? I mean it has gun in the name. Tested out on 2 Great Jaggi that were in the Mogo Woods. With Lagi armor on it was overkill.

I'm probably going to start bowgunning after I finish the Rank 6 quests which I am almost done with. I have 2 more Deviljho quests.In the Volcano and Sandy Plains.

I got 2 Deviljho talons yesterday and I used both to upgrade my armor and weapon charms. Now I should do more damage and take less than before. I didn't really get that much so I will keep on farming Deviljho.

Kytim did you find your rathalos vambraces yet?

If he cleaned out his storage box like a little hunter then maybe he could find them. That box is so messy I can hardly get by it to have something forged. ;)

I'm going on shortly if anyone is interested.

Okay I know there is maybe 2 people on here that is below HR31.Toruresu and Rachtman. I'd like to get you guys up to high rank. Also for those that haven't played in a while like Bustin98, Armak88, Halbred and Lindy it would be a good idea to take this chance to level up to high rank.

I will be on in a few hours or so.So if you want to come join me.

Post by: GK on August 21, 2010, 10:19:55 AM
I should be on & off today as well though if my connection acting the way it has been you may wanna avoid hunting with me.

Had a connection death sometime after the 5 minute warning while taking on Jhen Mohran this morning.  :@

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 21, 2010, 03:56:16 PM
I will probably be back on in a hour or so. I was fighting Deviljho a few times. We beat Joe 3 times. I'm getting better fighting it.

I only have to fight my Sandy plains quest for Jho then I will be done with Rank 6 quests.


Edit:Getting back on now.

Edit 2:Well I am broke again. I think I have 4,000 in money. I just upgraded my Thunder Lance fully. Now I can do more damage to Deviljho when I fight it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 22, 2010, 03:18:48 AM
I'm really sorry Toruresu and Rachtman. I was really tired. I'll try to make it up today.



Some new event quests showed up a little while ago.

Land Arena HR51 requirement.
Lagi and Rathlos.
The HR31 Deviljho Capture is up.
Also my favorite money making quest is up. 9 Wyvern eggs. 30,000 per run.

I'd like to try the Deviljho and Lagi and Los quests before they go away.Which I think is the 30th.

Hmm Lagi has a weakness to Fire.Los has a resistance to fire. Los has a weakness to thunder.Lagi has a resistance to thunder. Maybe it would be best to tackle both with 4 players and 2 players with thunder weapons and 2 hunters with fire weapons.Or just have a weapon that does neutral damage to both.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 22, 2010, 09:52:49 AM
Hmm may wanna use a Dragon weapon instead of Thunder. Works even better than Thunder on Los & while it's not the best choice for Lagi, he isn't totally resistant to it.

There's a HR31 cap of Deviljho? I'm grinding at HR48 now so something like that would be great between monster farming hunts.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 22, 2010, 10:11:23 AM
Yep the Deviljho capture quest takes place in the flooded forest. I tried it once before by myself but I basically got 2 hit killed. I had I think Rathlos + armor when I tried it. Also didn't have it fully upgraded.

You up to hunting it now GK?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 22, 2010, 02:49:16 PM
I wish. Heading out the door to work right now.

Maybe tonight, depending on my mood & connection. Still not sure what exactly is the issue. I played Saturday afternoon for over an hour with no issues what so ever yet later that night I dropped out all over the place.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on August 22, 2010, 04:54:51 PM
Do you share your connection? How fast and stable is it? I share mine with my neighbor and sometimes when he is home and using it I experience problems and slowdown. We need to upgrade the bandwidth.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 23, 2010, 02:01:37 AM
It's usually pretty stable. While the Wii is the only thing disconnecting this computer & the one physically connected to the router aren't really having any issues at all. Even tried disconnecting this computer from the network & it still was happening during our last club meeting.

Find it odd since I rarely ever had problems with other wifi games.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 23, 2010, 02:59:58 AM
Yeah, go with a dragon-type weapon for the LagiLos fight. It isn't a good idea to split up and go for both monsters, as then both of them are around for the whole fight. It's better to concentrate on one monster, to get rid of it.

Find it odd since I rarely ever had problems with other wifi games.
Keep in mind that Capcom runs the servers for this game, rather than using Nintendo's servers like every other online Wii game. Some people may have to adjust their router settings in order for the game to run properly.

Post by: Stratos on August 23, 2010, 04:00:32 AM
Look in the Wi-Fi assist section of the forums. There was a thread where Pro helped Toru get his stuff working. Maybe you could try something similar.

Anyone want to play tonight? I'm off work and feeling up to some play.

Ehh, I guess I could play. I have to work tomorrow but I slept so much this weekend that I can't sleep, plus I didn't really have much to do to expel energy so I played way too much Rune Factory Frontier. Too bad that game isn't online...

Post by: Stratos on August 24, 2010, 05:36:10 PM
Gonna be on tonight around 6pm my time. I made a new friend online last night and he will hopefully be joining us. We got snubbed a lot by idiots and ended up forging out on our own. From people taking personal insult for us healing their buddy to people threatening to kill themselves to spite others it was an odd time. We moved to a new room together and started a los/ian hunt where our third member dropped out because he thought we wouldn't cut the tails. He sucked anyways but we persevered and ended up taking both out with a minute or two to spare.

Felt pretty good. But still no los plates. I really want to get the Rathling Gun+ but with a 5 plate entrance requirement it's gonna be a while since I still need one plate to finish my armor.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 25, 2010, 01:54:20 AM
I was online but after 3 dropped connections it was time to hang it up for tonight. Tried checking my signal strength & while the PC ranks its connection as good, the Wii's connection was in the yellow. Starting to think it's less a settings issue & more of a signal problem.

Unfortunately the router is the one supplied by Verizon & I have no idea how to get in there & change the channel so I may just have to try & reposition the thing or my Wii & hope it makes enough of a difference.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on August 25, 2010, 05:06:25 AM
You could try the WiFi Wok trick. Position a wok by it to boost signal strength.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 25, 2010, 07:30:06 AM
Worth a shot. Don't really want to cough up the cash to buy a signal booster.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on August 25, 2010, 08:14:09 AM
I finally got that last Los Plate I needed to finish my armor. Good lord that took a lot. I farmed all night with carve and luck boosts. Then I get one from a tail. About time. Now I need 5 more for my Rathling Gun + and then two more for my gunner armor! Haha  ::)

Worth a shot. Don't really want to cough up the cash to buy a signal booster.

I saw a friend do it with his WiFi and it really did boost the signal strength. Also look at what is in between your router and the Wii because something could be interfering with the signal.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on August 25, 2010, 08:35:14 AM
Wish I could give you the parts as I can build a Rathling+ gun as it is. I once fooled around(bought, used, didn't save game) with a Rathling+/Agnablaster combo against a pair of Royal Ludroth in Mogo Woods & nearly killed both of them despite not wearing any waist or leg armor.


Oh wait, now I see the problem with my connection. Someone decided beside the router was a nice place to sit a stack of framed pictures & a big mirror...

I am going to take a month off from Monster Hunter and focus on some of my other games since I have been playing Monster Hunter 3. I would like to finish off Murmasa, Red Steel 2 and Cursed Mountain before I pick this game up again. I have logged in one-hundred and seventeen hours into MH3 and I have achieved elite hunter status, so I have done enough to deserve a break.

Post by: Mop it up on August 25, 2010, 05:33:07 PM
Didn't you say that every other online game you play works fine? If that is the case, then I don't think the problem has to do with signal strength. It's still worth trying to increase it though, as at the least it will improve stability.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on August 25, 2010, 05:36:03 PM
It could be that Capcom is more picky about how stable your connection is and their servers dump you at the earliest signs of instability to prevent games from becoming de-synchronized.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 25, 2010, 05:42:58 PM
That's exactly what it is, it has been unofficially confirmed.

I forgot to mention, you could probably find the manual to your router online, if you do a Google search for its make and model number. Find out what is the address to access your router, and then read about the kinds of changes you can make. Every router is different so I can't tell you how it's done based on my own.

"Nintendo WFC service for this game has been discontinued."

I didn't believe it of course, and I checked around GameFAQs to see what was going on. Apparently, every online Wii game was giving that message. I'm not sure what happened, but the severs were down for some reason. It could have been a special kind of maintenance, as it wasn't the normal kind...

As I talked about in the other Monster Hunter Tri thread I made use of my LR Rathlos armor. On the set I have my Iron Impact hammer. I have the armor up to 7 on all parts. So it has 289 defense. As far as skills go I have Attack up Large and Critical +3 and Heat cancel low. Attack is 1137 I think. I can probably make the attack better a little with a powercharm but I have like 10,000 in money.

Post by: GK on August 29, 2010, 11:41:22 AM
Just missed me Maxi. Teamed up with a group that was farming via Blood Sport. Two rounds of that & I hit my urgent which to my surprise was not Deviljho. Pretty sure I have some armor & weapon work to do before I try & take that thing on.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on August 29, 2010, 12:17:20 PM
Yeah you need to have the right armor for that urgent. I used Ingot + and I gemmed in fire resist. I had Guard Plus as well. I used a lance. If you want to use a Lance I think Agnaktor + armor would be best. It has fire resistance naturally and I think it has guard +2. Which pretty much makes all attacks not effective.

Ice and Dragon I think are its weaknesses. Ice I think while on the ground and Dragon in the air.

Post by: GK on August 29, 2010, 02:55:57 PM
So fire is the attack to watch out for? My Rath custom has +20 fire resistance & an HP boost. Fireballs from Rathian won't even set me on fire while Rathian's are only sometimes. Still, I've only maxed the Rathalos vest part of it do the current defense probably won't hold up.

Isn't there an even that gets you parts to an ice weapon? Either Cold Call or Blood Sport I think... If they're still available I may try those since my ice gun doesn't seem to be happening.

Two rounds of that & I hit my urgent which to my surprise was not Deviljho.
Surprise! Deviljho is not the toughest monster.

When it's on the ground, its weaknesses are water and ice. When it takes flight, its weaknesses are fire and dragon. It's difficult to hit it when it's flying so a water or ice weapon would be better than a fire one. Though most people use a dragon weapon on it, because they have the highest attack, and dragon still some some slight extra damage.

Technically, its weaknesses are paralysis and sleep. However, it isn't worth it to use a regular weapon of this type, since they don't have very high attack. Instead, this works only for a gunner, preferably two gunners, who will do two things: paralyze it so the others can hack away at it; and put it to sleep, then have everyone lay two Barrel Bomb L+ by its head. Everyone should bring ingredients for more Barrel Bombs, as well as material to make ammo to give to the gunners, as it can be sleeped/paralyzed at least five times usually.

Unfortunately I don't think anyone in our group has the equipment to gun this one. I know a few gunners myself, but I don't know if they would be willing to help us.

So fire is the attack to watch out for?
One of many. It also has a dragon attack it uses regularly, and Rathalos armour is weak in that area so watch out. When it takes flight, it will use thunder and ice attacks. The ice ones are pretty easy to dodge since you can see them coming, but the thunder one is pretty quick so be careful.

It has fire resistance naturally and I think it has guard +2. Which pretty much makes all attacks not effective.
That's what Guard Boost does. Guard +2 lowers knock-back and reduces stamina depletion, but it does not increase the number of attacks which can be blocked.

I'm guessing I wasn't clear enough before in the game, but if everyone stands on/near those ledges you can get Alt to ram into them and get stuck in the rock, letting you beat on him for an extra bit. There are two or three of them in the level.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on August 29, 2010, 08:41:26 PM
Ah, that's another tip that I usually forget about. There are two of those rocks, one on either side. It can get stuck in one of the rocks if it does the dragon ram attack into it. I think after two times, the rock will crumble, so it can be done only a few times. Some people go up there and use a Hunting Horn to grab its attention.

I hit HR 26 earlier today playing alongside my brother (Dyryn - if you guys want to add him, I'm sure he'd appreciate that).

Working towards finishing my Lagiacrus set -- still need one horn, and lots of Dragonite Ore.  Also, getting really close to my next lance...the Acrus Lance.

I'll try to play this Tuesday if I'm not having dinner with a friend of mine that night.

Yeah, I knew he was after Deviljho just thought he would be after the next star rank. Ah well.

Hmm one of my strongest weapons is a paralyzing switch-axe actually(downside being after I fully upgraded it, it has 3 slots but -25% affinity)...I have a hammer of that type too but upgrading it has been a pain.

Not sure which of my armors would be good for this job. May have to make a new one or combine what I have & see what the heck will happen.

That's what I started the game out with... but it got so expensive in the early stages.. constantly buying basic ammo to survive in the game.  That's when I switched to lances.  I just bought a Bolt Axe last night after completing my Lagiacrus armor set, so I can't wait to get started using that.

Have to get up early but if I can't sleep I may log on for a Gobul or two. Banking on that fish's upper rank armor for my urgent business.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 01, 2010, 03:55:01 AM
That seems like a good choice but it has a -20 in thunder as well as a -10 in fire resistance.Might be able to gem out one but not the other.

Dober armor I think might be the best choice. The materals come from lots of monsters so it could take a while to get.It has a 40 resistance to Dragon. Only real weakness is fire but you can gem that out.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on September 01, 2010, 04:09:36 AM
Just eat out the other GK. I always try to eat out my weaknesses. Getting the food skill 'Foodie' helps because you keep your food skills after death so shoot for that too if you can.

I took a nap because I was feeling exhausted when I got home much earlier tonight and just woke up. Hopping online now.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on September 01, 2010, 08:51:11 AM
I thought about Dober but getting Dragonbone Relics would require taking down Deviljho a few times. Thinking upper Gobul + armor charm or something may work.

Other plan would be to use my lower rank Jhen armor with Sneak & hope that dragon would be too occupied with killing my partners to ever notice me.

Didn't even notice the thunder weakness until just now. Probably because I was wearing my Lagiacrus armor(I wear a +8 Thunder charm with it) while I was looking at the specs.

Dragonbone relics you don't need to fight Deviljho you just have to have the food skill explorer and visit the tundra in HR.If you show up in the explorer area just gather in the gathering area.It will take some time but it is easy.

Post by: GK on September 01, 2010, 12:31:46 PM
I had explorer in the Tundra before but just ended up on a ledge somewhere. Forget what I got though as I was disconnected before finishing that quest. I'll have to try it & see. I could potentially end up with a Gobul/Dober mix depending on what materials I end up with first & what I can do with them gem wise. Upper rank Lagiacrus parts have been evading me so I'm not all that confident in making much for Dober though.

There is a pile of bones on that ledge. If you gather from it you usually get about 2 relics from it.

The key to fighting the Rathian and Rathlos urgent is to fight one of them at a time or have 2 people go after Rathian and the other 2 to go after Rathlos. Maybe depending on what HR everybody has you can have the 2 lower HR hunters go after Rathian and the higher rank of the group go after Rathlos. I always capture los since he is the tougher of the two.

Wow! Was that the first Tuesday that nobody met up? How sad... Hopefully, I'll see some of you tonight.

The key to fighting the Rathian and Rathlos urgent is to fight one of them at a time or have 2 people go after Rathian and the other 2 to go after Rathlos.
Personally, I don't think that is a very good strategy, because it leaves them both alive for the entire quest. A better idea is to focus on one of them (usually it is Rathian since she has less health), that way you can knock one out of the equation so you aren't constently getting double-teamed when fighting Rathalos, who you really have to watch since he spews fireballs all over the place.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 01, 2010, 08:29:08 PM
Actually we did play last night but someone didn't set the room up in the usual place. If you checked online you would of saw us. I was doing some solo play getting money and then Rachtman messaged me and then set up a room.Kytim joined and we did some quests. apdude joined as well.

Armak messaged me and I joined the room that he made. Then apdude and Rachtman joined. We fought Barioth but at the start of the quest Armak got disconected so we captured Barioth. Then finished Rachtman quests. Crashman showed up for a few quests. Then he left then we did Rachtman urgent with a random. It was like midnight PST once we finished.

Anyway thats why I said either focus on one with 4 people or just have maybe a mixed pair of a higher rank and a lower rank fight one. This way most of the time you can keep both of them occupied so one doesn't show up suddenly.

Yeah, I only advise splitting up when you're fighting Rathian & Rathalos comes over to help her. Even then if someone can chase one off with a dung bomb of if you're not already at the nest, head on over & lure Rathian there by picking up an egg.

Tired after a lack of sleep thanks to some jerk blasting a stereo earlier but I still got a few quests in me so I'm on my way now.

Should have done that with you guys instead of my urgent. My Rath armor worked better than I thought but I guess with only the vest & arm parts maxed the defense isn't enough to deal with everything he dishes out. Plus his stupid charge randomly locks on & changes directions with you when you move out of his path.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 02, 2010, 04:20:51 AM
I think I had 389 defense with my Ingot armor when I did my urgent.

Are you going to stick with Rathian armor or are you going to get different armor?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on September 02, 2010, 07:11:48 AM
Different. Was only using it because it's the highest defense I have at 320-something with a +20 health boost. While protection from his one fire attack is pretty cool, his dragon-charge seemed to catch people more often.

Briefly looking at the armor list & now & thinking a Rathalos/Dober hybrid might be in order. From all the Rath & double Rath hunting I've been doing I should have many of the Rathalos parts already.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 02, 2010, 09:56:26 AM
Probably be best to get Dober greaves,coil and vambraces since those have the highest Dragon resistance of the dober armor. I think you have the los+ mail already so you can get the los + helm.

That should work.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on September 02, 2010, 08:06:15 PM
Plus his stupid charge randomly locks on & changes directions with you when you move out of his path.
Yep! That happens. I don't know if it's lag or if it was intended, but that's why it's a dangerous move that you always have to be prepared for.

Getting a food boost that gives +40 or +50 health is ideal. The Ingot armour has +25 thunder and +10 dragon resistance, which are its two most troublesome attacks (though if we are sleep-bombing it, it will likely not fly, and therefore won't use the thunder attack). It's got -10 fire, but the fireball is fairly easy to avoid once you learn how to see it coming. You could still negate it by using decorations, a food boost, or firedouse berries.

Dragon resistance would be the most important type to have, though. Also, if you have a fully-upgraded one, use an ice or water weapon. Though a lot of people tend to use dragon weapons since they usually have the highest attack; if you have one such weapon, that would work as well.

Nah, have to get up early yet again.

As for my weapon of choice, it'll be a Great Gaiarch G hammer now that I know where to get Dragonbone relics. No element but with +15 affinity I'll be scoring more critical hits especially if I can gain Feyline Slugger with it. Has 3 open slots too so I should be able to do something interesting with the armor I'll eventually use.

I'll be on again in 10mins or so Maxi. Gonna try the Gun Hammer this time. Not the best way to fight underwater but hopefully actually breaking his horns will award me them.

I had the ice lance last night but I needed to upgrade it with normal amber tusk.I got that tusk after you left in a LR barioth hunt. I have all the parts for the Sabertooth I am just short on zenny. I think the Sabertooth is the final upgrade for the ice lance.

I'll probably be on again at some point tonight. Don't really have a set time though. Mind taking on Barrioth a few more times? Besides a few more relics I wanna test the Barrioth armor set I finished during that run. Its defense is 20 or 30 points shy of my Rath set but finally having some ice protection should make up for it.

Nope but the hunt wasn't a total waste. Was able to FINALLY upgrade my Lagiacrus helmet to upper rank levels. Just in time too because he nailed me 4 of 5 straight times pretty quickly(I ended up in the same area with him) at the start of our last hunt together. Didn't get a health boost but the defense kept me from fainting long enough for everyone to arrive.

I did a quick search for info on how to get them & some sources claim you can only score them after you break off everything(horns, tail, claws, chest, & back spikes) AND captured him. Another source claims they only appear in 3% of quest rewards.

Not sure about Lagi gems, but I'm sure some of the Rath gems have a higher appearance rate in certain quests. So you might want to try a mixture of quests involving Lagiacrus.

I'll try to test this out.I did get a Lagia Saphire last night in my last quest. We did capture it. Broke the tail,chest and I think the horns. Not sure on back though.

I guess the best way to test it is to break everything except the tail and capture it and see if it gives you a Lagia saphire.If it does than it is the 2 percent rewards.

You have to be HR 40 at least.Royal Ludroth,Lagiacrus and Gobul are the three you fight.  I'm going to try and beat it. If you want my help just get online and message me.It may be a while though.

Yeah, I was wondering where that came from when someone accidentally posted it in-town. Basically like a Flooded Forest version of Called Call, huh? Was worried they were going to use every monster there & add in Rathian too.

Its pretty easy.Me and apdude beat it by ourselves.Although we had like 1 min left when we captured Gobul.

That was a pretty epic quest.  All out of potions and seeds with only minutes left on the clock... Good thing i didn't use my trap on lagi after the first one failed.  Never cut it that close before. 
 
I'm going to be out next week (buisness trip).  See you all in about a week or so.

So yeah great hunts. I got to HR100 tonight. I think I'm the second in our group to do so. I got Barioth+ armor done. I refined my Water hammer set more. I still haven't decided on what talisman I am going to use. So many choices. For now I'll keep the sneak skill.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on September 06, 2010, 08:19:55 AM
I still can't believe how fast Gobul went down on that Flooded Forest Free for all. I was just trying to sneak in a few extra hits, didn't think running in front of him & attacking like that would actually stall his escape.

If we're meeting tonight I'll be in a little later than usual. Dober armor's done just have to mess with the jewels & finish getting Dragonbone Relics & a Wyvern Gem for my hammer. There are actually several monsters that can produce a Wyvern Gem but I've been sticking to Gigginox & Barrioth simply because I can do both tasks at once.

Sorry guys, scratch me off the list for tonight. Long night at work & all has worn me out. Have fun who ever's still hunting.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 08, 2010, 02:36:32 AM
Well not many people played tonight. Myself and Rachtman were the only people that I saw.

So for now I am going to use my Barioth+ armor for hunting in the tundra. I have these skills.Cold Cancel High,Evasion up,Evasion x2, Negate sleep, and negate poison. I have a negative skill but it doesn't matter as I won't be using this in the volcano. Any skills anybody thinks this set needs in place of negate poison and sleep?
I use the Lance,switchaxe, and long sword with this.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on September 08, 2010, 05:20:13 AM
How'd the heck did you get all that in there? I have a mix of Barioth+ & lower rank upgraded & I didn't have nearly enough slots. Some armor parts actually had no slots at all. Cold cancel(Hi) is one of mine though so yeah, I use it in the Tundra from now on as well. Saves on hot drinks & that evade bonus cuts down potion use too.

Well I have a Talisman that has +10 in sleep on that same one it has I think +6 in poison. I just gemmed in negate poison and cold cancel high in the rest of the slots.All the rest of the skills come on the set naturally.

Thanks!  I really enjoyed playing with a number of people on NWR, and it encouraged me to start becoming more active on the forums.  So, if anyone out there hates me or my posts, Monster Hunter, and by proxy, several of the regular posters here are to blame.

My absence has been due to a combination of factors, really.  60 hour work weeks throughout July and August, and prepping the house for the new baby; we had to paint a room, as well as consolidating furniture and purging old junk.  I'm sorry that I haven't been around very much, but I definitely enjoyed getting to play with you guys.  Once things settle into routine, I'll try to see about coming back on; I'm already so far behind everyone else (still HR 43, I think), I wonder if it will just be a even more of a tedious grind.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on September 11, 2010, 06:13:45 AM
I think I'm close to hanging my longsword for good and concluding my adventures in Tri. I got to the highest level and other than Mean Joe and Caedeus I've killed every monster in the game. And the bonus is that I now have time to revisit older games and break open some new ones I've yet to enjoy at all.

I'll probably still hop on from time to time but I'm just feeling this is the end of heavy adventuring for me. Hope to see a sequel down the road on Wii/Wii2 or 3DS.

It was a blast hunting with you all.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 11, 2010, 11:25:02 AM
Thats a shame. I really enjoyed playing with you Stratos. Hope sometime we can play again together.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on September 11, 2010, 03:24:01 PM
Stratos stole my thunder... again!

I feel similarly, except I've been like this for a few weeks now. I've completed every quest and I don't feel like there's much more to do in the game. Sure, there's still plenty of weapons and armours to create, but with nothing new to fight, it doesn't seem worth it.

I'll still join sometimes when people are playing, though. If people still get together on Tuesday, I'll definitely play then. Beyond that, it'll be a matter of what I'm feeling at the time.

I'm already so far behind everyone else (still HR 43, I think), I wonder if it will just be a even more of a tedious grind.
Like Maxi said, it doesn't matter. You're close to the point where HR rank no longer serves any purpose; you're on the lvl 5 quests and there's only one more to go after that. There are still plenty of reasons for us to play those quests; in fact, depending on which armour and weapons we're trying to make, there are reasons to play every quest lvls 4-6. As I was talking about above, the only reason I will play this game is to do so with the people here, so any time that you come back, I'd be glad to join you.

Just played some offline & scored an Aquamatic Spark thus making me an official bowgun owner. Not the most impressive weapon in the game but it makes hunting Great Jaggi in the Mogo Woods more interesting.

Well it was fun hunting with you guys last night. I checked the wiki last night and I think I needed a few things to have the Diablos+ mail to show up. Namely a stout horn and a few other things. I checked the armor for low rank Diablos and it has the same skills as the high rank but when put together with the high rank vambraces it doesn't have enough points for Critical Draw and tremor proof.So I will be getting the high rank helm and body. Yes I'm going to try and make a great sword set. I'll probably use Baggi + coil and leggings for the rest.

There is a capture Deviljho event quest, but I was not strong enough to tackle it by myself. I would like to try again with all of you tonight, if that is alright? Maybe we could do Mohran and another Lagiacrus mission, too.

Yeah, I'm sorry about the confusion last night. What I meant when I said the skills were different, is that the low-rank has different skill points than the high-rank, and so it wouldn't add up enough to grant the skills. Every armour is this way, you can't mix and match the pieces or else you'll lose one or more skills.

But doesn't that have 2 Deviljho.

A few nights ago me and kytim fought in the arena and we fought 3 monsters. First was Barroth,then Uragaan, then finally Deviljho.


Edit:I'm getting on now.Do some mining while I wait for more people.Maybe get that 2nd Lanturn+ for Para hammer.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on September 20, 2010, 09:25:14 PM
So apparently there is some new event quests up today.

One where you have to slay a Giant Alatron. HR51 and higher.
Some previous event quests like Sea Power and Rage Match are up as well as others.

Rage Match is that 2 Deviljho quest in the arena.

Hot Deal is gone so for those that need tickets for the Sinister Saints switch axe will have to wait.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on September 21, 2010, 12:25:18 AM
Curious if making that thing giant actually makes him easier like the giant Gobul quest. On land giant Gobul's just a big slow-moving punching bag.

Tried to get my urgent finally done earlier but after many minutes of my life that I'll never get back in a set up town the only person that entered, checked out my equipment/skills, apparently didn't like what he saw, & left.

I'd try again now but after the stuff I had to deal with at work tonight, I'm not in the best of moods at the moment.

I think we had 12 mins left when I struck the final blow.
Also one of the people that helped us said he didn't want to sleepbomb. Which I was fine with. Ajax was a great help.

Next goal for me is to finish up my Great Sword set. I need the Diablos+ mail. I have a few Great Swords at the moment.

Yeah, I hate Alatreon too but rumbling with him without relying on sleep bombing or even a paralyzing weapon & winning...me & Maxi were on such a good high we were ready to do it again & help some other guys that came into the town to get their urgents done. Sadly their armor wasn't holding up & we lost pretty quickly.

I had a hammer & I believe both Maxi & Ajax were lancers. My only annoyance was apparently Alatreon knew what we were doing thus spend a ridiculous amount of time flying. It was almost like fighting Rathalos at times.

Yeah I saw you after the last quest was done. After that I checked what time it was and it was 3 am so I went to sleep.
I never did get my Diablos+ armor done. I only really need 1 Stout horn.

Kytim I think I put in 500 hours since the begining of June when I got it.

Wow! You must have plenty of free time, Maxi.

Post by: BeautifulShy on September 30, 2010, 09:58:34 PM
Fair enough.

I guess I'll get on now.

Finally got my Great Sword set done. I used High Rank Diablos and low rank Jhen. While its clear I won't be fighting Barioth with it I should be able to do decently otherwise. Gonna get the Angush P since it has the highest Raw attack of the Great sword.

Only have High Sigliend and that Great Sword from the cap Deviljho event.

Only really fought Diablos with the set thus far.

Is there any way that Capcom could bring over that new Bear creature, Aoshira, from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd to the Tri servers for us to hunt. I would not mind taking him on and perhaps this new wolf wyvern that is similar to Lagiacrus.

No. We have to wait for a new Monster Hunter to release.

I have a feeling that the game will be ported over to the 3DS because of the online structure that the 3DS has to offer for a multiplayer game.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Stratos on October 02, 2010, 06:55:50 PM
The Wii version performed OK but not enough to warrant a new one this late in the console cycle I think. I'm hoping that it does ensure a sequel on either the 3DS or the Wii2.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 02, 2010, 07:03:48 PM
From what I seen that Monster Hunter Tri has sold 1.8 mil copies worldwide. It really depends on if the Wii successor is coming within 2 years. If it comes 2 years from now then I think we won't get a sequel on Wii. After 2 years I think we will get another game for Wii.

Well I think I am done getting more lances.I'll just upgrade my sleep and ala lance fully.

I think I have only 1 fully upgraded long sword so I may go after those next. I read some good things about the shadow binder para long sword. 
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on October 02, 2010, 10:27:43 PM
Unless CapCom specifically programmed Monster Hunter Tri to have DLC (which they did not), there is no way to add content to the game.

The Monster Hunter series seems to sell better on portables so one on the 3DS is far more likely than another Wii version.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on October 03, 2010, 10:09:05 AM
My biggest complaint about Monster Hunter Tri is that it had too many reptiles and dragons of what not to fight. I want to fight more mammilian monsters such as this Aoshira creature.
 
I would have also liked to have had a sea battle similar to that of the Jhen Mohran hunt. Basically the player and three other characters ride on a sail boat and battle either a Megalodon, Preadator X, Leviathan or Kraken-esque creature that is of comparble size to Mohran. A similar fight, but on the sea. Also, this creature would be big enough to swollow Lagiacrus whole in one bite.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on October 03, 2010, 04:43:08 PM
I actually feel similarly, the game doesn't have all that many monsters yet there are quite a few similarities between them. They're almost separated into types, with Rathain, Rathalos and Diablos as one; Royal Ludroth, Lagiacrus, and Agnaktor as another; Barroth, Uragaan, and Deviljho are samey; and Great Jaggi and Great Baggi are like a palette swap. Even Gigginox and Barioth sometimes strike a similar pose. Alatreon and Jhen Morhan are the only two 100% unique monsters.

This is why I am interested in Monster Hunter Frontier because Capcom seems to have diversified the monster roster. I just hope they bring it over to the west for all of us to play.
 
Rathian, Rathalos, Barriorth, Gigginox and Diablos = Wyverns
Lagiacrus, Royal Ludroth and Agnaktor = Leviathans(new comers)
Barroth, Uragaan and Deviljho = Brute Wyverns
Great Baggi and Jaggi = some kind of derivative of wyvern species
 
I can not help but notice that there are way too many Wyverns. They shpuld have Barrioth a mmal and Gigginox his own species. Also, a plant monster would be kind of cool, too.

I should be able to show tonight. Again, just gathering stuff so I can go pretty much wherever. Not too keen on Deviljho until I land a Lagia Sapphire & upgrade to an Epitaph Blade though. Tried attacking him with a hammer in quests had that he showed up in(but after actually finishing it) & wasn't really connecting with it.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 05, 2010, 01:13:49 PM
Yeah Deviljho can be tough if you are not prepared for it. I don't like fighting Jho if he just shows up during some High Rank quest. I might just mess around and try to attack him while others try to finish the quest but I really only like to fight it with a lance on quests that you have to fight it.

I even used my sleep Sword to fight it just to put it asleep for laughs.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on October 05, 2010, 01:36:27 PM
Same here. It's why I wait until the quest is over since him hitting me won't mean anything. Glad I did since before those test runs I assumed the same set I used for Alatreon would work on Deviljho too. The attack/defense & skills are right, it's just that the hammer wasn't working out like I had hoped.

I've seen Deviljho lay out many a hammer user, so I don't think it is the ideal weapon against it. Something which can block seems almost a necessity.

Yeah, came to that conclusion as well. Only downer to the weapon switch is the loss of the 3 gem slots Great Gaiarch G has though I think that only reduces Attack Up M to an S so it'll still get the job done.

The only Lances I saw with 3 weapon slots were the Doom Crown P and Millennium.
Doom Crown P probably is the better choice though if you don't have awakin as a skill. Then again you would probably have to make a lancing set since I don't think the skills you have will work with the lance aside from attack up Large.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on October 06, 2010, 02:11:23 PM
Nah. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm going to go with the Epitaph Blade great sword. I have several lances but never upgraded them. Just can't get into lances. Yeah, I think the other skills were Critical Draw, a high Dragon resistance(forget how much at the moment), & Marathon Runner.

I need a good fire lance for my fight against Gigginox, Barioth and Lagiacrus in the offline mode, but I do not have the option to create a fire lance.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 06, 2010, 04:53:00 PM
There is only 2 native fire lances without awaking.

The event fire lance and the Agnaktor lance.

The event lance is easier to make since the Agnaktor lance has to go through different paths to get to the Agnaktor lance.

Here is the path for the Agnaktor lance.

Buy the Rhenohasta, then upgrade that to the Rugged Lance,Then finally to the Spiral Heat.

Rugged Lance needs low rank Barroth parts and the Spiral Heat needs low rank Agnaktor parts.

You won't be able to upgrade it all the way until you get Agnaktor + parts.

I repelled Lagiacrus on the offline mode today with my Red Bludgeon and I made short work of him in no time. I have a feeling the next time I fight him he is going to be a lot tougher.
 
As for my fire lance, all I need is a flame weapon that can dish out a lot of pain on Barioth.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 07, 2010, 02:27:37 PM
For Rathian a thunder Switch axe is probably the best weapon.

No, Agnaktor is still unvailable offline. I just beat Lagiacrus for the second tme in the offline mode. I literally pounded his head in with my Red Bludgeon. Who's next?
 
I beat Rathian with an upgraded Ludroth lance. 
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 07, 2010, 05:35:18 PM
If you need another lance to face water monsters I would recommend the Iron Lance path. It has no element so it can face pretty much everything without worrying about the monster resisting it.
You want to get to its final form Elder Babel Spear which has a big shield and it adds 24 defence points.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on October 07, 2010, 06:34:21 PM
Online has really helped me gain a foot hold in this game. I mean thanks to playing online I was able to cut through R. Ludroth, Gobul, Barroth, Lagiacrus, Rathian, Gigganox and Great Baggi like cake. I am most likely going to take on Rathalos, Barioth and possibly Diablos soon.

Here is a list of the monsters in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd:

Confirmed MHFU monsters: Anteka, Bulldrome, Bullfango, Rathalos, Rathian, Diablos, Nargacuga and Tigrex.
Confirmed MH3 monsters: Bnahabra, Great Jaggi, Great Baggi, Qurupeco, Barroth, Gigginox, Agnaktor, Rathalos, Rathian, Royal Ludroth, Barioth, Uragaan, Diablos, Giggi, Altaroth, Delex , Rhenoplos, Jaggi, Jaggia
New monsters include:
Gagua (Bird Wyvern): An ostrich-like minion commonly found in the Mountain Stream
Aoashira (Pelagus): A blue bear monster with powerful arms
Jinouga (Fanged Wyvern): A thunder wolf wyvern who is quite agile and uses lightning to power itself up
Urukususu (Pelagus): A white rabbit-bear monster from the Tundra region who uses its belly to slide around
Dosufurogi (Bird Wyvern): Similar to the Great Jaggi, this alpha raptor uses poison stored in its neck sac.
Furogi (Bird Wyvern): The Dosufurogi equivalent of Jaggi
Black Tigrex (Flying Wyvern): A Tigrex subspecies in the volcano with a greatly upgraded roar
Zuwaroposu (Herbivore): A green rhino-like Herbivore in the Flooded Forest
Hapurubokka (Leviathan): A desert Leviathan similar to Gobul in structure.
Rangurotora (Pelagus): A volcanic Pelagus that looks like an Armadillo. Rolls and attacks with its tongue.
Barroth Subspecies (Brute Wyvern): A subspecies to the Barroth thats covered in Ice and lives in the Tundra.
Royal Ludroth Subspecies (Leviathan): A subspecies to the Royal Ludroth that is colored purple with a pink mane.
Qurupeco Subspecies (Bird Wyvern): A subspecies to the Qurupeco This subspecies has no visible thoat sac and an array of different colors.

I am sure that it would not take much effort on Capcom's part to port this over to the 3DS in time for Japan and Western release date window. It would be a day one purchase for me if it did happen.

Also, how does the online component of the series work on portables?

Post by: GK on October 18, 2010, 02:08:10 PM
Sounds good to me. Took down my first Deviljho over the weekend. Armor seemed to work out but it's hard to tell for sure. There was a guy in the group that considered himself the King of Support. With Wide Range +2 & speed heating he mostly stayed back & kept us constantly healed, cured of conditions, & occasionally raise attack/defense.

The guy wearing Rathian Armor with pretty much only the basic skills & Demonic Blessing gemmed off did die once despite the support guy's help though.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on October 18, 2010, 02:23:16 PM
Was he using the sword and shield?

I remember hunting Jho with someone with Ludroth + armor.They had constitution +2 and Divine Blessing and was using the Para lance.Think he got off 3 paras. I was using my Agnaktor + armor gemmed in Elemental attack up.I uses my Thunder lance. We 2 manned it. I think Barioth killed Jho while Jho was in one of the caves in the tundra.

Edit:I just thought up a status up set that I think will work with all the status weapons.

1 weapon slot-Earplug jewel
Agnaktor Helm+
Bhenabra suit
Agnaktor Vambraces+-Silencer Jewel
Bhenhabra Faulds +-Earplug Jewel
Agnaktor Greaves
4+ Hearing and -10 reload speed or a 3 +Hearing with one slot.

Skills-Status Attack up,Earplugs,Guard +1, Razor Sharp, and Reload Speed-1

Status Attack up is a given.Earplugs will help for all the weapons less so for s&s and Lance on everything except Giganox,Diablos,Deviljho and Elder Dragons,Guard + 1 is for the monsters that don't hit as hard,Razor sharp will help keep the sharpness up longer.Great for s&s,switchaxe,longsword.Reload speed isn't a problem since I won't be gunning with this set.

Edit 2: Won't work with the sleep lance or para hammer since they don't have slots.

I was outside of where Jho was when he got killed because I had to heal so I don't know what attack Barioth used or even if Barioth killed it.It might have been a Bhenabra for all I know. I'm going to guess that it was its leaping attack.

Last time I talked to Halbred about playing he said he was having problems connecting to Tri.

Hmm if those bug maws weren't such a pain to get I'd try that status armor...I have a poison longsword just sitting in my inventory. Have the material to turn it into either a second fire one or para. Just not inspired to do either.

That didn't go all that well, I guess I must be rusty. Either that, or I just forgot how quickly things can go badly. I mean really, two of those against Rathian were stuns. Stunned! What a dirty trick! And Agnaktor's always been a toughie, especially when it conceals a rolling Uragaan! Unfair!

I'll check if you can replace the Bhaenbra with Giganox parts since both can get Status attack up.

Edit:Don't think it will work without affecting all the skills that I mentioned.

I saw a few sets without Bhenabra and those were Giganox + armor. Other one I saw had HR Helios head,body,arm and low rank Helios and finally Vangus feet. Gemmed in status attack up.

 
Easiest way to kill those bugs is to make poison smoke bombs and get them in one area right next to you then use the poison smoke bomb. Gun them with poison shots. Another one is to kick them until they are stunned then carve.Last method can sometimes kill your prey instead of stunning.

Nah.  Deviljho's tough and all, but once you boost your equipment he's not all that frustrating anymore.  Diablos, on the other hand, is so damn jittery that every fight with him becomes an exercise in frustration.  And his vulnerability to sonic bombs is a dirty, dirty lie!  :@

I defeated Diablos and Barioth offline on my onw, Maxi. As for Rathalos, I am still having trouble beating him, but I plan to focus on upgrading my Rathalos armor before I take him on again. I still do not have Rathalos armor for my arms because I need a Rathalos plate. However, I decided to buy a Rathian arm armor to take its place temporarily until I can figur something else out for the time being.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on October 22, 2010, 06:16:24 PM
Yeah, the Rathian to Rathalos armor switch was my original plan but after noticing only Rathian's armor had the actual fire resistance armor skill with health boost I stuck with it. Well tried to. Ended up making Rathalos' chest plate before Rathian's

By the way, check out your inventory every now & then, especially those talismans. On more than one occasion I've improved a set by finding a better talisman than I already put into an equipment set.

The best time to use Sonic bombs is right after he digs into the ground. I caught him in the middle of the ground and beat the stump off of him.

Seemed overly surprised when he fainted during the Double Trouble quest. Between him & the guy that thought running over to me while I was stunned & low on life in order to lure both wyvern over to finish me off was a great tactic, I bailed & saved my potions for something less wasteful.

For the former, I know folks who go out of their way to make the game extra-challenging for themselves, such as by taking on HR Diabolos with no armor and an iron lance, so you probably drew one of the those.

For the latter, I know plenty of folks who are plain old dicks, so you probably drew one of those...

Yeah, I assumed he was trying to challenge himself thus why I didn't leave town before even starting the quests. If everyone was on their game there was always a chance of still winning. It wasn't until they were both struggling on Rathian before Rathalos joined that I started to wonder...I don't think either remembered to bring antidotes or dung bombs judging from how long they stayed poisoned.

Yep. I think my worst experience in that area had to be against a Qurupecco that had summoned a Diablos. I kept wondering what the heck was everyone doing while Diablos was hounding me & Pecco was hopping around by himself. I didn't realize until I watched myself faint that all 3 hunters were shadowing me the whole time. Stayed to finish that one but refused to waste my life powers to save someone else later on.

I don't think any good hunter would call themselves perfect. We all specialize in an area or two while lacking in others.

I see myself as a damn good hammer user & pretty handy with a great sword too but my defensive skills are lacking so my armor skills tend to focus on protection & keeping me alive. A big flaw with being a hammer guy is that I can't cut off tails so I try to focus on the head or legs of a monster while trying to stay out of the way of the tail cutters on my team.

To be honest, I still don't think that's acceptable behavior in a public room. I want to get through quests as fast as possible because otherwise they will take far too long to complete, so I want everyone to give it their all. If people want to use weak weapons and no armour then they should go start a club or something.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Kytim89 on October 27, 2010, 08:08:02 PM
I am pretty dangerous with my Red Bludgeon hammer. I have killed many beasts with that hammer. Although I consider myself to be an all weapons kind of guy, I find that I prefer impact damage over cutting damage. The hardest part about being a hammer guy is compensating your speed to accomodate that of the monster being hunted. It is better to sheath your hammer and once the monster leaves himself open for attack swoop in and beat the crap out of him and then get away and repeat the process.
 
I like using the long swords as well, especielly the flame long sword. Although I have been using my water lance to hunt Rathalos, Diablos and Uragaan. I tore those three to pieces with that lance. I would like to get into great swords and then sword and sheild once again.
 
I do not like the bowguns, so I might not ever try those in the field. I tried them once and did not like the vulnerability that reloading gave me when fighting fast enemies. Although I noticed i that in other MH titles thre was the option to hunt with a bow and arrow and I would not mind using that weapon rather than the bowgun.

Cool.  Any advice would be welcome, especially from established players that have probably already accomplished more than I ever will.  The game seems pretty intimidating to jump into... which is part of the reason I'm such a slow adopter.


Give me a week to get some more practice with the game (hopefully moving past the "totally incompetent" phase) and then I'll add my username/Capcom code to my signature and follow this thread to see when people go online.

This is my first Monster Hunter game.Got it back in June. I'm HR 151 at the moment and I am just trying to work on different sets for each weapon type.

There is many weapon types so try to pick one that fits your play style.
Sword and shields are quick at attacking but has low attack but has great elemental attack and status weapons. So the focus should be on those two things to make the best of them. The shield can also cause KO damage when it attacks the head but it takes a while longer then the hammer.

Great Swords are very strong but they tend to attack slowly so you need to watch for openings.It can also block attacks from monsters.

Hammers have pretty good attack but not much as far as elemental attack.Usually work on the head to knock out the monster so it is not able to attack for a few seconds.Also causes exaust damage which makes the monster tired and makes it stay still.

Probably the best all around weapon for most situations is the lance. It has a weapon for all the elements and statuses. Also has a shield. It is great for underwater fights as well.

The switch axe is a pretty good weapon for the hovering monsters. Great for tail cutting. main defense is rolling and side stepping.Has all the elementals and it has a paralisis as well.

The long sword has pretty good mobility when out.Pretty fast as far as attacking goes.

Finally the bowgun which I haven't played much with but it has 3 parts to it. The frame, barrel, and stock. Mixing different guns can make you have different ammo combonations. Maybe Mop it up can explain more about it.

Here is a good channel on youtube for Monster Hunter Tri.

http://youtube.com/user/SocialDissonance He has tutorials for all the weapons and tons more videos as well.He is on vacation at the moment.He has a Lets Play where he starts in the online with a new character and basically fights all the monsters with level approprate weapons.

Another good resource is the Monster Hunter Tri wiki.Just put that into Google and it should be the first result.I use it to check weapon trees and different armors.

Got jury duty tomorrow so I will be away from the game for some amount of time. So work on offline while I am away ejamer.

Edit: God hammering the final online boss is a pain as far as hitting its head when it isn't knocked down. I did manage to get a skypiercer though.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: ejamer on November 08, 2010, 09:29:26 PM
Good luck with jury duty.  I'll be around next week after getting a better understanding of how to play.


Spent part of the evening trying to get started with the offline game.  It's really slow at the beginning, but that's probably for the best.  This game seems like it requires a strong understanding of the "basics" before you jump into bigger battles - which was part of the issue I had with the demo disc.  Seems really cool so far - even started combining different items and building/upgrading some new armor.


Frankly, I'm kind of disappointed I didn't pick this game up earlier after strong first impressions.  I had a month of downtime this summer, and Monster Hunter seems like it could've filled that void perfectly.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on November 09, 2010, 01:23:52 AM
Oh I forgot to mention what skills work well for each weapon type.
For sword and shields you generally want elemental attack up or status attack up. Razor sharp is good as well since that skill makes you lose sharpness slower.Sharpness affects the elemental damage and it also affects if your attacks bounce off certain parts of monsters.It also affects the raw damage one does with weapons. Evasion +1 can help as well for defensive purposes.

Great Sword.
These 3 skills work well together.
Critical Draw,Focus,Earplugs.
Critical Draw makes it so that attacks when you first bring out the weapon are critical meaning it does more damage then normal. Focus reduces the time to get a full Level 3 charge.Earplugs makes it so that a monsters roar doesn't stop your attacks.There is a higher version called HG earplugs which blocks all roars but that is later in the game.

Hammer:
Earplugs, Attack up Small,medium or large and focus.
Later in the game there is a skill called Sharpness+1 which makes all melee weapons have a longer sharpness bar and that affects raw damage which the hammer excels in.

Lances: Guard +2 and Evasion +2 also elemental attack up. I have 3 lance sets. One which I use for underwater hunts. A Guard +2 armor set which I personally prefer to evasion +2. Finally my evasion +2 set which I generally only use for one area. The evasion + 2 set I can use with switchaxes and long swords if I am feeling daring.

For the long sword and switch axe they tend to work well with these skills. Focus, evasion +1 or 2, and Earplugs.For later Sharpness +1,High Grade Earplugs and evasion should work. 

For gunners it really depends on what type of gun you have but elemental attack up,status attack up,Adrenaline +2 and precision work well.

Adrenaline + 2 makes your attack rediculously high but only when you have 40 % of your health left.I have seen this type of gunner online and well it made quick work of the monster. I personally wouldn't try gunning offline because it can cost lots of zenny but if you keep your farm running you should be making lots of zenny.

I'm excited to try using the Bowgun, but it seems expensive and more difficult to be effective with initially.  I'll stick with the Sword and Shield combo to start, and then learn to use either the Great Sword or Lance once I feel more confident with my hunting skills.  After that I'm going Bowgun all the way though.
 ;D
 
It's really fun to see how each weapon handles differently and requires different strategies in battle.

So that's what you were doing when you asked us to not heal you. I plan on making a Jho hammer eventually though I haven't planned on which skills to make around it yet. Maybe do something with Uragaan armor's Punishing Draw skill as it's an armor I was planning to create it for double Rath hunts.

Yeah I was thinking about a way to try to get my HP in a more controlled way and I remember watching a video of someone facing Jhen and using a toadstool.It poisoned him and you could just let the health down like that. Fighting Rathian last night I noticed some things. Like what I could and could not be hit by to get down to a certain amount of health at different health percentages. Really indepth things. Stuff like its pounce and eat and fireball are its strongest attacks while its charge and tail spin isn't really that much.

~Newbie Newsflash!~


First Great Jaggie downed after a ferocious battle!  Ok, the battle wasn't actually that difficult... but it was time consuming.  Some silly mistakes were made, and additional patience would probably help.  There will be a chance to improve during the follow-up attempt though.  Biggest gripe: having key items stolen by those damn Felynes during battle.

Does this mean I'm ready to take on Super Ala?   (kidding!)






Sure would be easier to make some progress on the game without work and a young family to take care of.  Oh well, sleep is overrated anyway.  With a little weekend effort, I should be ready to check out the online mode next week - I'd be perfect as "live bait".

Well there is two ways to get your items back. Attack the cat and you will get back the item. If they get away the other is to visit their base. On the island it is in area 4 in the cave check the statue.

I had already learned how to get my things back, but with a half dozen aggressive creatures attacking it was tough to hit some of the Felynes before they escaped.  Once the Great Jaggi retreated, I didn't want to go dig out my stolen treasures in case that extra time allowed him to heal or recover.  (Maybe it would've been worth taking the break though.  A flash bomb and some tainted meat probably would've made things that much easier after tracking him down again.)
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on November 12, 2010, 02:21:36 PM
If you're prone to Felyne robbery you may want to carry some Felvine. They'll steal that but leave your more useful items alone(until you run out to steal anyway).

You can still hit them & get it back too if you want.

Good tip.  Will carry one or two if it's likely these guys are going to be a nuisance.




Hmm... after beating my first big monster, now I can't walk through two areas in the woods before bumping into another one.  At least it seemed easier to kill the second Great Jaggi than the first one - maybe because of experience, but more likely because I'd take enough time to gather healing resources and sharpen my blade before pursuing to the next area.


Maybe it's time to start looking at buying/upgrading weapons or armor.  Being able to kill stuff faster would be nice.

Well there is a new event quest up, Giant Gobul. I, Mop it up and Tak fought it. Didn't break the Lanturn.Probably a team of hammer and gun users would be best. Pellet and Crag shots would work best to get lantern.

So I've finished off the 2-star quests and have started on the 3-stars.  Still learning to wield a bowgun, but rather enjoying the change it provides.

Stepped into the City (online play) last night to see what it looked like.  Wow... this certainly isn't the usual half-baked online experience you get on Wii.  No wonder some regions are paying for the online mode.


Although unsure of exactly where to go or what to do initially, I'm figuring things out pretty quickly.  I'd be up for some online gaming towards the end of this week if you don't mind an amateur in the party - otherwise I'll post again after getting more experience.  Do you guys use WiiSpeak or keyboards to chat?
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on November 15, 2010, 01:26:36 PM
I mainly use keyboards to chat although if there is someone in the party that has Wii Speak I'll switch to that.

Yeah Japan is the only region that has to pay I believe. I think they can have 10 people to a city.

Ejamer here is the city we play together at.
Wisdom 3, Gate 27, City 5.

Oh since you went online can you post your code and username in the Monster Hunter Tri FC topic so we know who you are.

Won't be around tonight but will look for people in that city if playing later this week.  I have only used my WiiSpeak once and wasn't thrilled with the quality (might be a config issue though), so would be open to either voice or keyboard.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on November 15, 2010, 02:06:44 PM
It's probably not a config issue. The quality is just bad in general.  :P:

I do use it though so if you're willing to tough it out I'll have it on.

By the way, welcome to the Monster Hunter Gun Club. Maxed out my Aquamatic Spark so now I'm looking to make a better bowgun armor among other stuff I want to do online.

What types of shots does that shoot GK?
 
I think once I finish my nearly all weapon status set I will work on a few gun sets. I got a tali the other day but it was one point short of having the earplugs skill.

I found a good gun set that fires all types of ammo.After that maybe an underwater gunning set. Then a set that does lots of damage as far as non elemental damage goes.

Everything except for any of the elements, Slicing, Exhaust, WyvernFire, Demon, & Sub. Doesn't have many level 3 shots but it has Craig Shots on rapid fire. It's pretty much a decent generic gun with no specific purpose. I still want that ice gun for hunting Diablos. The further away I can be from that thing & still hurt it the better.

Probably would make a decent status and underwater bowgun. I'll look around to see what might fit that gun.


Edit:You can go full Rhenolpolis + and gem in status attack up.It has -10 in thunder but you probably won't be around the monster to take thunder damage.This will give you  Recoil down +2,Crag shot level 1 up,Status attack up and Speed eating.

Other one is a mix of Diablos + and Lagi +. Diablos Cap+ and Guards+ while the rest is Lagi +.Tali is a 10 Percision charm. Gem in this a Fusillade jewel,Pierce Jewel +,PiercePlus Jewel +. That will give you steadyness +1, Bonus shot,Pierce S Boost, and Pierce S Level 1 up.  Probably would be a good mix as far as elemental goes.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: Mop it up on November 16, 2010, 04:42:25 AM
Rapid-fire Crags would be useful if you could carry more than 18 of them, but as it is, it isn't a very ideal bowgun. There isn't one gun that can use every type of ammo so it isn't worth trying to make one. Ultimately, you'll want one gun set for each element, and one gun for status shots like sleep and paralysis (poison isn't very useful).
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on November 16, 2010, 08:27:07 AM
Thanks for the ideas Maxi. That Diablos/Lagi mix peaks my interest the most. Steadiness +1 is a skill I stuck onto the armor I have now. The way the shots veer off without it makes the gun almost unusable & Pierce is one of my go-to rounds.

Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club

Yes, they are more difficult. Monsters have more health and are more aggressive to compensate for having more players.

Can you play this weekend ejamer? I usually help out HR 30 and under hunters get up to HR 31 on the weekends.

Also for future reference post that you are getting online here so we can play together.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: ejamer on November 17, 2010, 08:06:37 AM
Yeah, I can get some time for online play this weekend.  I'll post here before going online to see if anyone else is around.


Glad to hear that things are supposed to be more difficult online.  Failed a hunt for a Great Jaggi, which I initially blamed on still learning to use the Bowgun effectively, but then failed to collect enough Crystal Bones in the time limit (came up one short!) despite mining every mineral resource I could find while running around the map non-stop.  Shameful...

Yeah you are right.That gun that I was making can't fire Cluster shots but it can fire at least one level of each shot.

Also part of the reasoning for me getting an all purpose gun is because I am running out of space in my box for weapons,armor and talis.Think I have 30 spots left or so now that I cleaned it out some.
In any case I made the gun that I was talking about. Got the Vangus cap and the Vangus gunner arms. I have some recoil on the gun but I think I might have a fix for it once I get all the Vangus parts except the Vest.

FWIW, I'm going on now for about 45-60 minutes.  Great way to kill lunch, right?  Expect to be online later tonight for a bit also if my baby girl doesn't stay up all night again.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: ejamer on November 19, 2010, 03:23:14 PM
Thanks to Maxi for playing over lunch, and giving me a glimpse of what Monster Hunter Tri might look like after I invest.. oh, several hundred more hours to level up and get some cool loot.  He made everything look so easy (and since I'm only HR4 it was pretty easy) that he could've finished the quests with his eyes closed.


Next time he can try using lower level gear.  You know, something like Maximo's boxers for armor with a soggy french fry as his main weapon...  Yep, he'd still make me look bad.






I'll check for people online this weekend.  Just don't wait around if y'all are going for some big game or higher level quests.  I don't mind grinding out some low level quests on my own to build HR status.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: BeautifulShy on November 19, 2010, 03:39:27 PM
Yeah I guess using my nearly all status set on Royal Ludroth was a bit to much. Maybe I'll not wear any armor and use my para or poison sword. Another thing I could use is just use LR Queropeco armor when I play with you for the remainder of your lowrank.

ejamer if you want to play I have no problem. We can go to City 6 instead of 5 if everybody else wants to fight something else.
I don't really have many weapons I need to get which can wait.I have maybe 1 that I need to make and 2 I need to upgrade but those are weapons which need a 4 person group.
Kytim let me know when you can play. Need to get you up to HR 40.

One or two isn't very useful though, all that reloading really decreases your damage potential.

(Most likely starting around 10pm Eastern, although it depends on when the baby is sleeping.)

Sorry - thought I'd be able to stay on longer last night, but my little girl didn't sleep very well.  So I got on right after your post yesterday and then had to bail after getting help on a quest.  High chance I won't be able make it online tonight either... although I'll definitely try.


Hopefully will catch you around sometime soon though.

As a side note I made an underwater gunning set. Got Ingot+ gunning armor.The gun has a shield so the armor meshes well with the gun. Have only fought Lagi with this gun so far but aside from learning to wait for good positioning when firing para shots all is good.

The only problem I am having with Monster Hunter 3 is that the bosses are starting to suffer from villian decay. This is especielly true for Lagiacrus, who I can pretty much stomp the hell out of on the offline mode. He is just one of many maonsters that I feel is suffering from this problem.
Title: Re: NWR Monster Hunter Club
Post by: GK on November 25, 2010, 10:08:08 AM
I wouldn't mind a bigger selection but I woudn't say I was having boss fatigue. Especially with some of these events.

Speaking of which I have to do Double Diablos again though the fates of technology seem to be mounting against me. Couldn't hold a connection last night & today my Wii froze mid-battle which took a while thanks to some guy whining about everyone else's weapon(insisted everyone had a weapon that could block).

Post by: ejamer on November 26, 2010, 10:17:12 PM
So I was there, in the city, looking forward to doing some quests.


Then my wife decided that Friday night was "Steamy Romance" night.  No - not romance with me.  She just wanted to use Netflix to watch a steamy movie.  Sadly, this usually doesn't mean anything steamy occurs after the movie as by then she'll be so tired she'll just roll into bed.  In the meantime, I lose out twice over by getting kicked out of the TV room and losing my game time.


In conclusion, having Netflix on Wii isn't always as wonderful as I initially thought.  (Ok, it's still pretty sweet.)
