This game is not a story line game, but it is still good (like Mario). This game has a fairly big learning curve. Learning how the armor and weapons work takes time, but once learned its worth it. You also have to learn the various monster personalities. This deals more with the monster class (Great Jaggi, Rathian, Rathalos, etc). Each monster fight is fairly unique. I've fought Rathians that would never give up fightning, and Rathians that would run all the time. Once you fight a fair amount, you learn enough to beat them well. The non-online mode takes a good time (which is a plus in my opinion), and then there is an online mode that is fairly fun. Its not MMO fun, but for a free online game it does a fair job. The monsters are totally different online. They are harder, have different personalities, and give different items.I purchased the game and played it for awhile. The cinemas are excellent, and the story could be good, but I really don't like the game itself at all. It's just too complicated and has too many different things going on at once. And that's just in the beginning. I shudder to think what it's like at later levels.
Chances are it's going to sit on my shelf and not be played much at all, especially since I have so many better games that I want to play first. It's a shame, because it looked like it had a lot of potential. It just wasn't my taste at all.
Yeah, i think the barrioth is one of the harder boss monsters. Even though its attacks don't do very much, it is VERY fast. the stratergy i used to beat it, was avoid most of its attacks, and when it wares its self out, attack. Try and do subquest A because subquest B is pitfall trap it, and you get the trap in the blue box. i used a poison great sword (Seigland) made from some not so rare rathian stuff (besides the plate) and i think that helped. Any way i need some help on Ratholos, prferably with a great sword, but i can use SnS and long sword. (i got thunder ones for all three of them)
I know rathalos can be a pain sometimes, but i don't get it why you having trouble with is.I tried rathalos again the other day, but ran out of time. i broke his face, wings and cut his tail off but he still didn't limp off. iv'e beaten him online but I need help for him offline.
(Finally got Tenebrea )
Thanks, i'll try it soon and i'll tell you how i do. I'm only low rank, so ill try to get the rustshard greatsword. Anyway, thanks again for the tips! BTW do you have any idea how to get fearsome maws? i need some for the armour, weapon upgrades and my bowgun. ThanksI know rathalos can be a pain sometimes, but i don't get it why you having trouble with is.
You want GS tips right? then the best choice right now for you would be "ancient blade" because of the dragon element. Rathalos/Rathian is weak against that. Don 't know if u got that, since you have to be a little lucky to mine it. Second best choice would be thunder element.
Armor would be, either Lagia or Ignot. Both are weak against fire, but you can fix that with armor skills.
Ignot has windproof, so wind effects of flying monsters does not work on you. And since rathalos flies alot, its a handy skill.
Do not attack him from the front (especialy when its flying), because of the fireballs. Attack from the side or behind. You can go for the legs, if he's on the ground, you may trip it.
He will blast fireballs mostly after it roars, finished an attack, flies ect...
When he attacks from high above the ground, ( 3x fireballs or it tries to poison you) throw a flash bomb in the direction of its face after its done with the attack. It will fall from the sky giving you the chance to deliver some good damage.
Still not enough?
The good old, trap+bomb to weaken it.
Bouncing bombs, if its flying. It may fall from the sky.
Use demondrug/mega demordrug, to boost your attack. it will stay in effect in the entire quest, unless you die.
Use cha-cha as bait. Equip a dance where it has "taunt" in it. Use acorn or ancient mask. Equip the dragon attack and element attack up.
You get them from Gigginox. Its a wound reward so break its face and body.Thanks, i'll try it soon and i'll tell you how i do. I'm only low rank, so ill try to get the rustshard greatsword.

I also stopped playing it for a while, since i got 20 equipment sets (maybe i will make a list later). Before i noticed i already was HR 198.I now have the Escadora, Helio+ and Yamato+ armor. My favorite weapon is Reaver: CRUELITY. I've had those for months now, but I haven't been on Monster Hunter in three months ( D*** punishment ;_; ). Hey, we should all arrange a date where we meet online and hunt together. anyone up for that? IT WOULD BE BEAST!!!!
