I've never actually seen Rathian defeated, either offline or on. It's gotten to be superstitious. Any group i'm with, no matter how good otherwise, seems to fall to pieces against Rathian, and we'll fail whether it's my fault or not.

 

Offline, it's nightmarish. There is no safe way to attack her, and there is no weapon set that can hit more than iher legs (or if there is i haven't found it or unlocked it), unless you're suicidal enough to stand in front of her.

You've got to be kidding me. Use a damn lance. Counter-thrust her sorry ass!

I'm online everyday during 9-12AM GMT+2 time. My name is Routsou; join me. Seriously, at this point, I can solo Rathian without too much trouble. Rathalos is WAY worse, spends half the fight airborne...

Its a matter of safety. Certainly there are weapons that can hit that high, but not in a way that's going to leave me open to a counter-charge, which is the one attack of hers that breaks any of my strategies. Otherwise i'd be fine, as i learned how to deal with tail swipes from Barroth, her flippy tail thing is a non-issue from the angle i attack from, but that random counter-charge gets me every time. Also the fact that i have to be square in front of her legs, otherwise she does damage just by walking around.

^ wow ... I haven't played online yet, and Rathian was a freaking cinch for me.

I've solo'ed every "boss monster" up to Diablos, and even it isn't that challenging.

Once you learn Rathian's attack patterns and tell signs, she is surprisingly easy. If you can try manuvering around her and attack her from behind from an angle but don't be directly behind her, the same strategy can be used to attack her neck and head. Don't do more than a few attacks though because she will turn and face your direction to attack. I use the Switch axe mainly because it has reach, has a side step dodge, and can attack her tail even when she is on the ground. When she is about to use her poison back flip attack, dodge to the side and then attack her tail after she she flips  but hurry before she turns and attacks you again. Never let stand or attack directly in front of her. Also flash bombs are great to use after you cut off her tail, use it directly after you cut it off so she won't directly chage you or fire blast your ass

The online portion of Monster Hunter Tri is region locked, so I am not sure how it is possible for you to play with Germans.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, that was better, but it's still quite stacked against me. One unfortunate hit, and that's the end of it (my policy of abandoning after the first death makes it harder, i'll grant).

 

I've found that virtually all of her stuff can be blocked with little concern, it's mostly when i get in a jam and have to retreat that she'll get me. She gives almost no windows.

Nice, Jhen+ up! Got to kill him once so far. I want that armor! (... though I'm still not 51)

Been waiting for that sandstorm, used it to buy a ton of stuff. Like, 400 thunderbugs.



nice team up last night, one of the best groups I have been with. I think I was upswung twice but that was mostly my fault. We only failed once which is good. I feel bad for amp though his connection kept kicking him off.

One of the hardest part about being a lancer is safely bringing out your weapon and putting it away. Rathian does weaken shields, but there are so many opportunities for easy hits.

I died four times. Although the one against Diablos was unexpected: while Diablos was buried, I saw Rathian land on the edge of my screen and assumed Diablos had somehow snuck up behind us. I turned to face "Diablos" and...

Blocked?! Never block unless you're a Lancer, and even then, sidestepping is preferred! Dodge; DODGE; D-O-D-G-E!



Switch axe question: I am not sure which path I should upgrade my Bolt Axe. The one that requires Lagiacrus+ parts has the most attack power, but the blade is powerbased while the other two paths have elemantalbased blades. Which option is the preferable one?
