Just got myself my first Gore Charge Axe. I like the single player very much and online too. But somehow it feels a bit less epic. Maybe because mh3 was my first and as such a big impact.

That said, I don't have much time to post...must...go...back...to...it

Definatately more epic than tri. Nothing will ever beat that feeling you get when you get your first successes, and defeat your first walls. Although I do like tri's music better.

But I think I said this earlier, the reaction of newcomers to their next entries in the series is a good thing. As long as they feel that way about that entry compared to the new one, I feel like that entry was all right, because thats pretty much what happens to everyone, whether moving from freedom unite to tri, or tri to mh4, or what have you.

As long as that entry has newcomers who feel like its more 'epic' than the next one they play, and as long as there are 'gamers' who conditioned to think they are super awesome at videogames, while actually never having to develop any skills because they play AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA garbage, and call monster hunter crap because it puts them in their place, then I know for sure the series hasnt lost its way.



Anyways, was doing a lost forest or whatever harvest run looking for killer beetles and gluegloppers, when I ran into my first rathian. Of course, i didnt eat, I didnt pack any potions (more room for rat packing hoarding issues), and of COURSE I had just equipped my new fire element peco spander, so, of course I was like, 'Yeah, im gonna hit that'.

So then Rathian decided to call her buddy Mr. giant rattle snake stegosaurus, and I was like, Yeah, Im gonna hit that too.

So two kitty carts later and now I have a brand new flick axe and a rathian loin cloth.

Haven't gotten round to buying the game yet but I have spent a few hours with the demo. The C stick, dare I say, is more responsive and accurate than cpp.

Those Mario and Luigi costumes for the felyne's look hilarious.

I get what you are saying. My brother doesn't understand mh either and calls it crap. I'm just enjoying it :)

We got the same pin! Were.... Pin pals awkward-dog.jpg?w=640




Oh, by the by, I chose the smarmiest most obnoxious face for my hunter. I just couldnt help it, his face was just soooo smarmy. And then I found the samurai ponytail hair do, and a little facial hair... and it turns out I am Jetstream Sam.

Holy crap this face makes the cutscenes hilarious.

Right now, I am torn.

 

I want to make many different, powerful weapons, but I don't want to spend large amounts of time farming low and high rank monsters with low and high rank gear.  I need to just push to G rank.

I already lost that battle with myself. Multiple times. Half finished armor sets, helmet here, faulds there, abandoned for another after checking skills immediately after forging, abandoned weapons everywhere, monster carcasses overflowing from landfills.... Its a horrible sight, and I havent even gone online yet.

 

I think as of right now Im going to take my gore, rathian, charge axes, and my flickaxe +, and a Narga/lobster highbrid (Evade+evade distance) and then push to G from there, because my bunny suit just isnt going to cut it much further..... And I never liked the way it looked. (Im a sucker for evade skills)

Guys, ashamed to ask, but can you help me.

I play a lot with the charge axe and got its controls. I get how to activate phials and use them. Yet...

I have a dragon element weapon and yesterday I somehow managed to activate that element. Right next to my name I saw a dragon icon and my Axe was completely glowing red. I can't replicate it. Do you know how to activate that one?

Activate your element?  Does your weapon not have it naturally?

 

Can you point out the icon on this page: http://monsterhunter.../Status_Effects

 

As for your glowing axe, that means you entered Element Up Mode.  If you have at least one phial usable.  I discussed this in Blademaster Part 1 of my weapon guides in the OP. 

 

For the quick and dirty here's what happens:

 

To activate it, you must have at least one phial loaded.  Then during the wind up of the super discharge (the last attack of the A A A combo in axe mode) you press R.  This will pour the energy into the shield itself, making you enter element up mode.  This mode lasts 30 seconds for every phial loaded, for a maximum of 300 seconds.  During the last 30, it will glow yellow instead.  The effects of EUM are

 

1. The physical hit of all axe mode attacks do 20% more raw (does not affect discharges)

2. Effectively gain Guard+1, reduce stamina loss, health loss, and knockback from blocking hits

3. Shield thrust gains a free phial burst

4. Super Discarge defaults into the Amped Discharge.  Must press Down+X during windup to perform super instead

5. Free phial burst when utilizing the guard frames of certain attacks

 

The Amped Discharge does a lot of damage, but uses up all current phials and causes you to exit EUM.

 

The only reason not be in EUM, is if you just lost it and haven't had time to build it up again.  Your first five phials should almost always go into activating EUM

This is some serious feedback. I'll know what to do. Thanks!

Just killed the new Mohran in singleplayer and kinda like the S.Magala armor. Thinking about going for the Mohran Charge Axe now. Damn this is addicting all over again :D

If the demo's anything to go by 3d is a must all the time because without it I've noticed its quite hard to judge spacing etc between player and monster. Drawback being frame rate is reduced.

Quitte the opposite for me. When inside monsters my eyes cant handle the 3d.
Cutscenes are truly beautiful
