    [MegaThread] Monster Hunter


    Hello fellow hunters! I am Genn Greymane, Monster Hunter... Charmed.

    This thread is dedicated to fans of the series or people who may be interested in the hunt! I recently became a fan when I picked up a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U and I fell in love. This game has been a great amount of fun, and I have enjoyed every battle, from the lowly Jaggi to the mighty Lagiacrus.

    BTW THIS GAME IS LIKE $15 AT GAMESTOP

    Let us also discuss 4 which is on its way for 3ds, and hopefully also ported to the Wii U. We can also discuss our favorite hunts, gotta say, the Barroth has got to be my favorite monster, and not just because they made my character smexy




    *OUR NEXT HUNT*

    I am attempting to find the best day of the week to have MMO hunts, please send me an in-forum mail. I am thinking Sundays.
    HAPPY HUNTING!



    *disclaimer*: You can make your own hunts on here too, do not feel pressured to conform to these above suggestions!



    For those who want to learn of Monster Hunter and are curious here is a video about it to explain a few things

    Always good to see new people get into this series!

    I was hooked when Tri came out for the original Wii. I'd never played before and got my butt handed to me a dozen different ways at first, but I loved it. Played all the way up to Jhen Moran online with two friends before our combined newbishness made it too difficult to go further (we never did enough damage to bring Jhen down). My favorite monster so far probably has to be Barioth, if only for the impact he had on us when we first fought him.

    I'm very much looking forward to MH4U, probably moreso than any other game announced for next year. Unfortunately, I don't think a Wii U port is in the cards anytime soon, but it would be nice to be wrong.

    As far as things go currently, I haven't played in a few months since my buddies lost interest when we couldn't bring down Alatreon, but I'm in one of the early levels of the G ranks (8, I think? I'm not really sure) and absolutely willing come in and help lower ranks with rough spots they might be stuck on, or whatever else, really. I just like stabbin' stuff (and then blowing it up). I can use several weapons proficiently, but my best has to be the gunlance.

    Schweet. Imma work on my Ingot armor since that feels like a legit upgrade from Barroth and I want to be as tough as possible to capture some of the monsters that were so hard for me to kill. After Ingot I plan to wear lagiacrus... MUWHAHAH

    Woop der it is!

    Oh Monster Hunter, you never get the appreciation you deserve.

    I remember first starting with Freedom Unite on the PSP, that feeling after killing two Golden Rajang alone to get the Rainbow armor color option.

    I haven't played 3 on the 3DS in a while though, my friends and I killed the Dire Miralis and kinda just stopped. Even though it was easier than the Savage Devil'jo.
    And this battle shall be the delicious mustard on that bread! The mustard of your doom!

    U can upload ur 3ds hunter to ur wii-u hunter I do believe. I had MH3 for my Wii-U but the input delay was a turnoff. May reget it and give it another go in the future.

    It has kinda gotten me wanting to play games like it like Freedom Wars on Vita. I love the whole group go slay stuff together concept.

    They can in the same room. You can also buy an adapter that allows your 3DS to connect to the multiplayer servers through the Wii U, but honestly if you want to play online I'd say you're better off owning both versions and migrating your hunter over to the Wii U every time you wanna do multiplayer. That's what I went with, totally worth it.

    I had MH3 for my Wii-U but the input delay was a turnoff.
    Are you sure that was a problem with MH? I never noticed any sort of delay...are you playing on a really large (50" plus) TV? That can cause noticeable input lag if the settings for the TV input aren't just right sometimes.

    Naw its a small input lag that was only slightly annoying. Its there but some many not notice it.

    It wasn't what made me stop playing didn't mean to make my last post imply it did.

    Its a good game and I should give it another shot sometime. Its the series that has gotten me into the group hunter monster style games like it. Not really sure why I didn't play it much mite have been because I was mostly playing my ps4 at the time.

    This guy is an asshole, his fight is simple and easy, BUT HAS A HUGE HEALTH POOL also even when hes limping, it may not be enough to trap and tranq him......

    I'll take a Duramboros any day over over the wandering Savage Deviljo.

    Have you seen that thing before?


    Although the Rust Duramboros is a pain too.

    I have not, I just unlocked my second master (I accept that I am there minion)

    but for that big guy I hate..... I just finished trapping Lagiacris (SP) was feelin good in my new ingot armor which is legit just better Barroth armor, I fully upgraded it, I fully upgraded my Barroth mace (shield and sword type) and this guy took 45 minutes.... AND DID NOT ACCEPT BEING CAPTURED WHILE LIMPING AND TRAPPED!

    Oh yeah, the Savage Deviljo only shows up at like G rank missions, the Crimson Queropeco or whatever likes to call him in.

    Even the regular Deviljo I'm guessing you might of seen by now, he's the reason you should start carrying around dung with you all times. They will wreck your face and not give a damn about your mission. Throw some poop at them though and they leave the zone for a bit.

    Now I kinda want to play MH3U again....to go kill the Brachydios a few more times. I had to farm him nonstop for his stupid gem to upgrade my switch axe to the G rank one.

    Although as far as favorite monsters go, I'm not sure if I could pick the Brachydios or the Zinogre....although the tiny Uragaan DLC mission was amazing.

    I've read a lot about this game - anime and mangas including,. but the game itself usually gets fairly mixed reviews.
    Is it for PC yet?

    The only PC version is Frontier, which is either a Korean or Chinese game only. I forget which.

    EDIT- It's Asian in general apparently.

    Literally playing monster hunter right now. Took a break to wait for the GF to farm, and noticed this thread xD

    Can't wait for MH4U to come out in the west. Waiting for the new 3ds to go with it though (don't have a 3ds yet).
    Only disappointment is that it's not for a non-handheld platform. The game can look amazing, such a shame to cram it onto those tiny things.
