The main advantage of playing solo (besides having a better understanding of the monster patterns) is that you will earn money at a much faster pace since the reward money is divided among all players.


I would also recommend farming and selling Zorah Magdaros parts to help fatten the old wallet.

Is anyone else trying to get the Guild Card Trophy? I want cards and Palico buddies.

Once you get a certain item in or near high rank, your money problems end. Monsters literally shed money for like three minutes while you wail on them. You can sell Might Seeds (which apparently is a classic technique), which can be grown in the Botany section after the tree is planted. They sell for 140 z each, so that's good early game money. Mostly, though, you can get more money by fighting more monsters. There's a reason why the rewards screen(s) say "Sell All and Exit".

Heya,

This is the first time I've played a MH game, loving it so far.

Just a quick question, and I've looked it up online, but there haven't been any real definitive answers...on those optional quests, even on the ones I've completed, there are word bubbles to the left. What do those mean? I've walked around everywhere talking to everyone, but that doesn't seem to address them.

The ones with the bubbles next to them in the quest list seem to be quests received by NPCs when they had an exclamation mark above their head.

I'm also trying to get that trophy. If you're on PS4, you can add me : Orpheus_Fool
Just send me an pm through CR so that I know it's you (on PSN only people on my friends list can send me messages).

Is it true this game would take 1000+ hours to platinum?

Giant/Miniature Crowns are sort of random, so that could take quite some time to get. 1000 hours? I doubt it, though. You can't fight 'elder dragons' until the end, so hunting a lot of them, which will take some time itself, will come after you've spent a few hours playing through the game.

So probably more like 200-500 hours.

Watching weapon tutorial videos remind me that before making Monster Hunter, Capcom made Street Fighter.

I wish the in-game tutorials were a tad more explanatory. I didn't know until I randomly checked the in-game weapons guide that switch axe's Element Finisher needs you to tap Triangle and not hold it.

Yeah. Several weapon-specific techniques aren't even mentioned except in the in-game weapons guides. Even if you go to the weapons training area through the housecat, it doesn't always list all the moves. I guess they assume people are going to read all that information, but "very experienced" people seem to assume they know what's what, and "very new" people don't even know to look.

As an example, for longsword, they added new Spirit moves. R2+Triangle initiates "Spirit Thrust" I think it's called, which when followed by Triangle does Spirit Helmsplitter, an attack that launches you up and does multiple hits on the way down while consuming a full color bar (but causing the spirit gauge to regenerate for a few seconds). R2+Circle starts an attack with a long invulnerability where you do a counter-attack if hit during it, for massive damage and a spirit gauge color upgrade.

I knew about the Thrust into Helmsplitter but I was confused for a bit as to why it wouldn't always fire. Then I realized it has to connect to get helmsplitter.

The best part of taking down Diablos is getting Powercharm and Armorcharm. The worst part about taking down Diablos is actually fighting her.

And here's something the game never mentions about that move that I had to find out from watching a video on youtube and seeing them do this. You can change the direction of your aim for the Helmsplitter mid-air by just tapping Triangle + a direction with the stick. Spent 30+ hours playing longsword before I found out about this and it made using Helmsplitter so much better.

Fighting Diablos is fun. Don't knowif because the controller is bigger and easy to hold than the handheld, I can easily execute guard point. Rathalos may be the the easiest monster to fight, just drop him with flash and hit.

Yeah, I heard about that somewhere, just don't remember where. I've not used the LS that much due to it being my main in MHGen, but now that I have a Dragonbone LS I might try it again.
