I'm a bit late to the party here but I'd love to know what weapons you main in MH world and as a monster hunter fan or not, what you think of this game. I played Monster hunter on ps2 when it was a lot more accessible but skipped the years inbetween which now I see was a foolish choice, anyway a LOT has changed regardless.
I've clocked 20 hours in world, I'd imagine its a bit more with my earlier character and I did have a few hours in the beta but I'd say all of that time has been learning the games systems, finding a weapon to main and a side weapon and I'm still weary I have more as there is a bit of the map yet to unlock, just opened the rotten dale.
I settled on an Kinsect glaive which is a pretty deep weapon and as I'm continually improving with it I can see that depth paying off big time, prefering the blunt kinsect with a fire element and speed atm. I back that up with a hunter rifle for support in hunts that already have mad DPS or capture missions.
I've seen the gameplay loop so many people talk about and it is an abyss I'm flirting with at the moment, you know a loop is strong when you choice to go on mushroom gathering quests over fighting a 150 foot Elder dragon made of lava :D. So yeah, gamplay here is strong and while the dynamic nature leads to some frustrating moments coming in one can see the time that will be spent will over come these and I'm now jumping around older monsters like the Barroth and Anjanath with ease on my Kinsect pogo glaive but still getting hammered by large monsters in the crystal map or even the damn Rathian.
So, Is this the best MH Game yet? If not why and what's your go to choice weapons?
