Low-level folks (sub 30 HR) can get together in City 1; at the moment I think only happydolphin and spurge are in that group (if I missed anyone, let me know), so I'll be joining them while trying to learn bowgunning.

Everyone else starts out in City 2. If that fills up, folks move on to City 3, then 4, and so on. I'll periodically be checking the cities and this thread, so if anyone ends up alone I'll switch over to their game.

I hope you know that I suck really bad at this game and am pretty clumsy :) But I'll be online.

I'll be at Greed 3, Gate 25 playing with people online until you guys get on (I'll keep an eye at 6PST and vgchartz posts), and will jump to City 1 when we're ready to play.

One thing I like a lot is loot and the prospect of getting new weapons and armor. *rubs hands*

No worries there: everyone sucks at the game until they don't anymore!

Any idea what weapon and armor you'd like to go for?

I'm really enjoying the hammer right now, I think it's a fun weapon. On the long run I'll probably use a sword.

Other than that, I'm not sure what armor is the best, but I like to have high defense. The element resistance is important in Torchlight but I'm not really familiar with how it translates in MH, because I think fire resistance and poison resistance may be important, but I'm not sure of the others. I'm still too new at this :)



Most monsters only have one, perhaps two elemental attacks, so while element resistance can be huge for some fights, it's utterly meaningless in others. ESPECIALLY if you're fighting a monster that doesn't even use that element in the first place.

You'll get a better idea of what your playstyle is and how to emphasize your strengths/buff up your weaknesses as you go along, so don't sweat it at this point. I was just curious.

Element is much more important in weapons and much less important in armor, as noname said. What is super-critical in armor is the kinds of skills that it will grant, which should match your playstyle.

For instance, i have a suit of armor for use with the Longsword, that because i only use the Longsword in the Arctic Region, grants resistance against Cold. I favor the Lance as well, and so i built a suit of armor that lets me play Lance more easily, by eliminating any damage received while blocking (whereas normally you take a little bit of damage even when you block an attack, the Agnaktor+ set lets me tank my way through everything except Uragaan's rollout and Jhen Mohran's belly flop. Even Agnaktor's dreaded laser or Ceadeus' sea-beam just bounce right off).



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Thanks Khan, that helps. And well, I'm going online now.

I remember when I was a noob at MH3.... I don't even know what HR level I ended up at... MH3 takes awhile to get good at but once you finally realize what the hell is going on then you can become good at it. I looked up to EntilZha a lot in beginning even though he wasn't a pro. We both progressed through the game very nicely. Towards the end I was just as good as he was (if not better).  Switch axe was my favorite weapon followed by mace...   I had a killer switch axe that would shock trap (lightning damage) monsters with enough hits.  I would always call it out (I would also bring three trap tools to mix with either thunderbugs or nets along with my shock and pitfall trap).  I was the trap master!



Getting on now.
