All things Monster Hunter - MHF/2/U - MHP3 and Tri

Recommended Posts

In p3 it set mining points that do not regenerate (correct me if I'm wrong only did 10 hours) , look for cracks in the wall. The semi random regeneration mining points return in triG.

Insin, you'll slowly get used to the new concepts, mainly with trial and error, I was finding the all the new felyne stuff and a few other bits and pieces tricky so I focused on the game concepts I was comfortable with until I was ready to come back and give it another go.

Can now play just about every aspect of the game quite happily. Weapon upgrades and new armour crafting does take some research though!

Has the lance been deliberately nerfed in MHP3, or is this just the way it was prior to Tri? Not being able to go into a counter after the third stab/upstab in its combo makes you much less of a badass killing machine, as it's much riskier going for the third hit if the monster decides it's time to hurt you bad.

Barroth has definitely been nerfed - he was lethal until you got to grips with him in Tri because he did a fast turn combined with a backstep after his charge attack, making him really hard to hit continuously, but he turns really slowly after doing his charge move now. As of last night, I'm back to my Tri low rank favourite set of the Rampart/Babel Spear path lance and Ingot armour - just need to figure out how to gem/necklace Guard into it and it's stabtime.

Mixing armour for skills is not going to be fun.

I like the way weapon damage is based on the same scale in this, rather than Tri's multipliers. I guess the only downside is that the stats feel a bit samey, whereas in Tri you were all like BEHOLD MY 1,000 ATK HAMMER! The ability to give your weapon a bit more damage once you've hit the upgrade limit with low rank materials so it's almost comparable with the first high-rank version in damage is pretty nice, too.

Gems aren't too bad, as you have a colour and materials to work with when identifying them, but is there any sensible way to try to figure out which necklaces you have, or do you just have to scour a wiki looking for waffle-house-v-boat? I can recognise the Guard skill in Japanese by sight now after getting my Agna lancing armour up to Guard +2.

Just did the Jhen Mohran village quest the other night (really helps to have played Tri) - is it time for me to head online? Tempted to farm Jhen for a bit first for that Sharpness +1, Expert and Focus armour though :wub:

I haven't used AdHoc Party before - will it be easy enough to find similarly low-ranked players? Is the online significantly different from Tri - presumably I'll ned to do the Hot Spring quests again but do you have to rank up to certain HR to unlock the urgents, or is it just a case of doing all the key quests, as in the village?

Go to S 50 for English speaking folks on adhoc. And add me on PSN for games if you're on 3rd HD

Hello. I'm playing freedom unite on my vita but have no clue what I'm doing. Is there a good, newb friendly guide to be found anywhere? I've looked at the wiki briefly but it's not exactly user friendly from what I saw!

Just want to know things like what I should be doing first, stuff I really need to know, how gear etc works.

Thanks!

Just work your way thru the village elder quests, the old biddy near the cat at the bottom of the village. Don't do the quests inside the building at the bottom they are for later.

I'm playing Portable 3rd at the mo so cant rem what the starter armor sets are in Freedom Unite but if you get stuck try and work on upgrading your weapons to make things easier, hammers are godlike, but if you do not practice with weapons you are not going to get anywhere no matter how good your gear.

Soon you are going to hit a big monster size wall called Kut-ku if you haven't already, if you can take him down easily then you are well on your way to understanding the game (until Dual Tigrex rears it's ugly head).

It's basically about grinding for gear, practicing learning the monsters move sets in order to overcome sticking points, then making a new hat out of monster guts.

If you can stick with it you'll see why we've all racked up 100's or hours playing or in Doc's case 1000's.

Oh I definitely see the appeal, particularly with my monster (fnar fnar) journey to work every day. The game just seems to have quite a large barrier to entry and steep learning curve!

Cheers for the advice, though. And hammers are always godly ;)

Just finished the 1 star contracts and fought an epic battle against a giodrome. Probably nothing in the grand scheme of things but considering I was using a bloody slow hammer for the first time, I think I did alright.

I think I'm in love :wub:

This is what I love about Monster Hunter - just popped online to try it out after plugging an ethernet cable into the PS3 and I'm already HR3 due to the help of people in the very first room I joined.

Hang in there, guys. Unfortunately nothing's been announced for the West and I can't tell you to hold your breath for E3 either. But Monster Hunter's not done in the West. It's just going to take a little longer for something to hit our shores.

I know it's been awhile since we've had a new MH game, but for what it's worth, it ain't cheap to keep those Tri servers running. Take that as a symbol of our ongoing stake in the franchise until we can get an actual game over here. - Capcom Unity staffer

I guess that means Mon hun 4. I think ill go back to freedom unite vita for the time being

Urgh, I'm hating the new, leapy Barioth-types just as much as I initially hated Barioth in Tri - Nargacuga and Jinouga are a pair of twats.

I've almost rinsed the singleplayer, running about in my Jhen/Agnaktor armour mix doing the 5 and 6 star multiple monster quests, putting off doing all the item fetching quests I'll also need to complete to unlock the Deviljho/Tigrex(lol)/Nargacuga ( :() fight so I can get my power/armor talons and call the single player done. I noticed that you can already get a small number of high rank materials from the farm, so I'm running around with some 205 damage hammer, which is a bit tasty.

Just a pity about the way online has to work in this. The good thing about Tri's online was that it was easy to find people around your own level, or who were looking to hunt particular monsters, even if they did gimp cities by reducing the number of people who could be in them from 10 to 4 due to adding (reportedly rubbish) Wii Speak support.

So while I haven't watched the 3DS software showcase presentation yet, I haven't seen any mention of monster Hunter Tri G anywhere, we're neever getting it outside Japan are we?

Monster Hunter news for Japan in the face of the complete absence of Monster Hunter news for the rest of the world makes me sad.

It does indeed look excellent though!

Oh great, once again, I'll be there, day one import...

Oh...

Well, at least I can just hang about for Capcom to release it in the west...

Oh...

We're not going to see this one at all, are we? :(

Is it me, or does the frame-rate look REALLY choppy in that trailer? :S

I think we'll get 4. Not out for almost a year and looks like they are gonna switch things up a bit. Could be last chance to break the west tho.

I'd give this series a second chance if they actually made some attempt to explore the potential of the series's human vs nature theme. Perhaps they could explore the impact the hunters have on the ecosystem rather than pretending you can just kill and take as much as you like without there being any sort of repercussion. As it is, I gave up playing Tri because it felt too much like a twisted fantasy big game safari, and that isn't a concept I can get behind.

Next you'll want a mario game where he comes to terms with the thousands of goombas he's murdered over the years. Is one woman really worth that weight?

I missed the water sections when playing MHP3rd HD, nothing as badass as an underwater superpound, or timing a long-range lance charge to poke a turning Lagi in the face.

All I want to hear about for Monster Hunter 4 is a proper online mode (ideally one which isn't gimped to 4 players in a lobby this time).

I loved the under water sections of Tri. Capcom handled them really well esp the feeling of different types of water from muddy pools to deep oceans to shimmering blue caves.

Capcom confirmed we are getting something via a community manager :

A Capcom forum member named Daniel posed a simple question to Capcom. He wanted to know if we're going to a get a localized Monster Hunter game this year. Here's what Yuri L. Araujo, Associate Online/Community Specialist at Capcom had to say.

...your request is simple enough: Yes, it's been confirmed that we are getting a game. "What it is" and "when we'll know more" are the parts I can't share.

Next bet for an announcement is at the wii u unvieling this week - maybe the rumoured TriG WiiU. Or maybe ad hoc party wii u and regular 3ds vers (Nintendo survey mentioned ad hoc party a.while back)

Localisation of the 3DS versions possible as well surely?

Kinda sad by how quiet this thread is. Who's still playing Monster Hunter? I'm plugging through Portable 3rd on both the PSP and PS3, while I wait to find out what's happening with an English version of something.
