For everyone playing monster hunter to post advice and info.

One thing I found which is a massive game changer is after beating Anjanoth all the bounties reward Armor Sphere +'s instead of base ones. So its 5x more efficient to raise your armor after killing him.

Absolutely. The game completely opened up after that Anjanoth fight. Now the armor and weapon upgrades are more robust.

What weapons are you all maining? I'm having a blast with bow and dual blades. I'm loving all the QOL improvements that kept me from getting sucked in with previous instalments.

Should I buy this? I'm kinda jealous and it looks fun. Never even played Monster Hunter before.

I am rocking a pulsar lightning bow 3 now and also a buster bone great sword with a water element. I am looking to create a fire katana and ice insect glave soon too. This game is straight up crack. I never played MH before and this is a great entry in the series to mainstream it for first comers like myself. It feels like Dark Souls meets Final Fantasy XV with a Jurassic Park setting. And it's not that hard to catch up at all. Especially if you have a group or join others online via SOS or assignment/investigations.

I don't work Saturday and my Fiancee is gone for the day so it's video game time! also probably going to play tomorrow (work again tonight). When I get home, we watch an episode of shameless then I stare at the TV with little ambition until I go to bed... Oh well... the greater good.. greater good.

Anyone else playing I just hit Rank 10 or 11... something like that

I really hate the weapon upgrade system. Anyone else know how to make dealing with this easier?

Getting items or figuring out what parts you need?

Just the upgrade process in general.. it seems like once you get into a certain category you have to down grade to be able to upgrade to another one? the whole tree thing is stupid.

You can always make multiple weapons and upgrade each in the respective path you want them to go in. I got a poison charge blade, paralysis CB, and normal great sword I swap between

Honestly you're better off waiting on serious or major armor forging until you beat the main quest/assignments. You just keep unlocking ridiculous amounts of armor with each act of the main quest. I would just upgrade the armor you have to max capacity. Keep gaining zeni and armor spheres and max it out then worry about forging gear once you unlock it all. I was going for a king beetle armor set and I just unlocked a super king beetle alpha and zeta set and I'm like ugh why did I waste my time upgrading the low rank armor? -_- I'm think it's wiser to stick to main and optional quests until most things are unlocked, then focus on upgrading equipment.

So when completing high rank quests you have random chance of unlocking an extra zorah magdaros mission. It only stays for 2 turns and rewards are a bunch of parts off him, so pretty nice if you want the armor.

Nergigante is the truth. He whooped my butt. I had to retry the quest 3 times before I barely managed to beat him with the help of another player. This game gets seriously challenging in the final act.

Yeah, my wife and I were supposed to go to a party this weekend but decided to cancel and MH is where I spent my time. And this game requires so much damn time too as you progress. Time and space begin to distort after you reach the 3rd and final act. Frightening.

Really looking forward to playing with you folks eventually. My online connection has been super shoddy over the past couple of weeks and I'm constantly booted offline.

Finally did the Anjanoth mission yesterday. I caught on fire half a dozen times and fainted once, but got through it. It really sucks when you faint, jump back into the fray, then realize you were only two hits away from downing the bastard the first time. I'm falling back on my shield instead of dodging whenever I use the gunlance. It has saved me countless times.

What is everyone's current weapon of choice? The awesome variety is killing me. wry smile

the game is definitely more interesting in multi, i did not dig the beta as a single player game but glad i gave it another try.

anjonoth is a dick, and i look forward to being able to kill it, it keeps showing up when im trying to kill something else. and when i was fighting the barroth when i got to wildspire wastes the first time out of nowhere the found just comes out from everything and "you have fainted" apparently diablos just decided lets troll this newb.

so far i like the bow pretty good, but i think the double ended lance with the insect glaive is my fave so far, i like the vault attack and its abiltity to mount monsters, while allowing mobility and respectable damage. ive just started experimenting the sword and shield as well as i think i like the quickness even with the lower dps. so i think those may be my go to three.

kingdom come hits tomorrow though, but i may be able to run with you guys some if i can pull myself from bohemia, a review or two has said its better than skyrim already, and the quest structure is reminiscent of the witcher, so we'll see.

I've messed around with the bow and it feels pretty good. I haven't used it on any challenging opponents as of yet, but I really enjoy using it. So far, I've gotten fairly decent with the gunlance. I've also messed around with the hammer, buster sword, charge blade and sword & shield. I really dig how different everything feels.

You must give me impressions of Kingdom Come. I don't care if you start a thread or just PM them to me. If it is some crazy Witcher/Skyrim hybrid, I will be all over it.
