I've soloed a lot of the monsters so far, but it did require a whole lot of backbreaking farming to be geared sufficiently for that. If you predict some of the monster's movements, you can generally land heavy blows without much difficulty and combo further into some real damage.
I'm not doing Rathalos yet though I did try him a couple of times. Rathian is no longer a problem and I can gener  

Same,I prefer soloing the monsters first then go do MP ,I hate being that that looses 20 mintues of gametime by feignting and yeah Ratholos and Diablos are insane on solo,I had the timer run out on me twice trying ti wear him down. Still,even with three other people on boars they are still pretty tough. 

Finally got high level quests though so I should be doubling my damage out put. The Odragon is the hardest solo boss though, not because it takes so much damage output like diablos but No matter high how you get dragon resist up or have enough jerky to cure the bleed he still hits like a truck with the combined toxic air and his bleed. 

My advice is off the top of my head  hornetaur mail will stop toxic air and I know it's no quick fix , but once you have enough odogaron parts you can make an odogaron helm for bleeding resist same thing for bleed charm , also a reminder   avoid head on come in from the side and use traps, if you can lure it amongst girros  with luck you should get it  a few free hits with paralysis .

That my weapon of choice  as well  pretty much for the same reasons that you stated , now what armor buffs do you use  I usually have roar and stun def most times and chop and change depending on the monster type.

I haven't played in awhile, but I mostly went for Exploit weakness and Earplugs, both were absolutely necessary for optimal dps. More defensive options like evade extender, defense, and evade window are nice. 

I usually have dragon king eye patch for weakness exploit 2,   bazel vambraces for critical draw 2 and lvl 1 earplugs baz coil earplugs lv2  hm mail lv 2 earplugs  barroth greaves stun res lv2 and marathon for jewels sharp , protection, brace ,steadfast , crisis like most it is one of about 10 loadouts it gives me baz protection, stun protect protective polish flinch free lv1 resucitate very handy I also like to have plenty of slots if I can.

Funny enough I picked it up for the first time today and it is a pretty technical weapon.

What was your weapon of choice beforehand , I started out with the bow  but ended up with the SB not sure why but it clicked not straight away mind you but it just felt right with it's two stage set up.

Since this is my first in the series someone recommend me to use the long sword and I beat the game with that.In post game and tempered monsters I switched to the Hunter horn (that weapon is beast if you know what you're doing).When I reached the tempered elders I switched up again and used the gunlance.I tried the switch blade but that weapon is unbelievably hard to get used to.

I haven't given the Hunter Horn a go but have noticed how much better the SOS party does  when someone has it.

It really works well in multiplayer.Attack and defense up and Tempered elders goes down in 10mins max.

Funnily enough the elder Wyvern states it's the least used weapon , so what's it like solo.



It's my first game in the series. I like it fine. It hasn't hooked me big time yet. I've played a sporadic 15 hours with a friend over the last 6 weeks. So far, I still like some of the MH clones I've played in the past more than MHW. Since I've started, I've had more fun with Counterspy ( yes :), and the Ratchet And Clank 2016 reboot. It feels cluttered to me. Probably in part because my playtime has been so spaced out. There's a lot to learn, and I sometimes feel a bit lost when I return to it. I was still getting tutorial popups the last time I played. Can't say that's ever happened to me 15 hours into a game prior to this.

I actually started playing again and noticed my gear is a lot worse than I thought. Still, had to kill teostra and got his coil for weakness exploit 2, and dropped the weakness exploit necklace/charm thing for just attack.  It's a little annoying that my main weapon is the HR rathalos one which is fire elemental, so I just been using something that a lot of monsters are strong against. Was wondering if any of the newer weapons were any good.

Solo is a bit more challenging because there's no one else for the Monster to focus on,unless you're an expert with the weapon.For me solo is no prob since I'm very good with it,I play notes and beat the shit out of the monster at the same time.

People play it less because they make the mistake of thinking it's "just" a support weapon but it's an absolute beast.I will even go as far as saying  the Devil Jho hunter horn is the second most powerful weapon in the game,only behind the Diablos Charge blade.

I can't fully answer your question mainly because I haven't experimented enough, for teostra and lunastra I found the Legia Frostreaver pretty good with it's white sharpness and ice element matching their  3 star weakness but that's pretty specific and it took me 12 legiana captures one after the other to get the  gem to make it .

My go to weapons so far with 3 or 4 to get are nergal gash dragon -high seal , perfected alloy axe 2 poison and occasionally teostra arx  blast and now legia frostreaver . I used motor chopper - fire against kirin but found I did more damage with teostra arx even though fire has an extra star.
