Really wish I'd known about the charm table thing two weeks ago. Just tested and I'm on T11, one of the "cursed" tables with a much smaller variety of talismans.

Stuck at a wall. Lightcrystal stops me from better lances, and apparently i can't farm Rathian offline (the monster seems to have the same durability as online rathian, unless i'm missing something) and can't really get too many reliable hunting partners during the day.

Hmm, unless i go for the Azure Crest, but that still leaves me with the armor problem...


do tundra gathering missions and mine there, you'll get light crystals that way.

Aye, i know. It's just an aggravatingly low drop rate (slightly better on the blue deposits, but there aren't many of them)



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

But you can also make lightcrystals thru combos?

Do the cold stones gathering quest, it seems to notably up your chances of recieving lightcrystals, its the easiest way we have found to get them. Far better than just trying to get them in general other quests, plus you can get them as quest rewards too this way, rather than just getting the ones you mine in the field.

Yeah, I'm actually considering restarting for a better charm table later. Stuck on 9 I think, damn bowguns. Luckily I have both the 3DS and Wii U versions, so by playing both, I imagine I can carry myself relatively quickly.



What is it with the charm-tables? And how do I test if I have a good one?

I got more and more behind you guys. Over easter I was traveling to my family, so only little time for MH on 3DS. But I'm interesting in Online, so Cone: when will be the next european hunt? Or should I start one?


How is Saturday 7PM BST for you? I still don't have the game, but I know there's plenty of people in the OP from Europe!



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Apparently I'm too stupid to catch a damn Qurupeco. I know how to fight it, I weaken it and wait till it limps, set up a trap (+ meat), it gets caught and then... it just gets away. No matter how many tranq bombs I throw at it. Ugh. Of course I always have more than one trap with me and when it got away for like the fourth time I thought "well, maybe it just wasn't weak enough yet." So I sliced it. Twice. And it was dead. Yeah, what am I supposed to do? I can't weaken it any further :-/

I've had an embarassing number of fails on Arzuros captures due to killing him too fast :).

If you have the gem slots for 5 perception jewels then this will let you see exactly when a monster is ready for capture (provided it's painted or autotracked).  You aren't using tainted meat as a trap, I assume?
