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.
