I'm using the sword and shield atm. I'm thinking I'll stick with this and then try out some of the ranged weapons

What's everyone else's main?

As I said earlier I play dual swords. 

I tried swtichaxe for a brief stint, but the play style was to different and since I'm still a n00b I feel I need to get the hang of one weapon first. And because I'm an idiot I just found that there is a sheet with the combos for the weapon in the game (like X+X+X+A+X) etc.

I've been going through the single player mode, and I gotta say, I love the random Palamute designs you get from the buddy trainer.

Sword and shield and lance are the two easiest weapons to use, I find.

They're my two mains, though once I've progressed a bit further and I have a bigger stockpile of materials I plan on also getting into the dual blades, charge blade, insect glaive, and gunlance.

What's everyone else's main?

Been using Gunlance, but I think I'll give the Bow n' Arrow a try for my second playthrough, or when I hit the highest ranks.

I'm currently using charge blade and having so much fun. I have been maining different weapons since tri (Great sword, long sword, hammer, dual blades, gun lance and switch axe) and charge blade is my favorite. 

Also regarding the discussion of transporting items. I noticed when transporting berylium that using a wirebug straight down on the ground after a big fall saved it so if you just put yourself close to the ground after the wirebug the object being transported won't break regardless of how big the fall is. Difficulty is of course timing and aiming but it wasn't too bad.

I'm having so much fun with wirebug and the new explorable areas went to the 5th area for the first time late yesterday before going to bed. I did an exploration quest and wandered around avoiding large monsters and spent 70-80 minutes just wandering about. I went to bed about 50 minutes later than planned but it was so much fun. 



I just learned that I can wall-run. I knew after I wirebugged myself at a wall, my character runs a short distance on the wall, but I thought that's it. But I can hold the Dash-button (R) and keep running up the wall until my stamina is off. Also drifting with the Palamute is fun. All these new mobility options are fun. Make traversing the environment much more enjoyable.

And with the relic records there is actually a reason to explore. It kills me that even fro Shrine ruins I just found two of the ten so far. Speaking of exploration, did you all found the Cohoot nest in the Buddy plaza?

I really wanna get into the Charge Blade; I took it for a spin in the training area last night and while it is a bit complex, I feel like I could get into it. I've watched some weapons guides on it but have yet to try it on an actual monster.

Also gave the Gunlance a try and since I've been a regular lance main with Tri it was pretty easy to get into and felt great. 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

That wall running thing bothered me in the demo. I kept thinking you could only run up a short distance before you'd jump off, so I was always very cautious to quickly wirebug again. I'm not sure if it was a change after the demo or I just skimmed over the tooltip before, but I was glad when first playing the full game and reading you could hold R to keep running.

Charge Blade is the weapon I've used most in World. It's a bit daunting at first, but once you learn the basics of it's moveset (basic combo into charge phials into elemental discharge+transform slash into basic combo into charge phials+sword charge etc.), it quickly becomes familiar.

I haven't played enough to know the full meta or anything, but compared to the other weapons I tried Charge Blade always felt borderline OP. It has great versatility with it's moveset, it's not quick but not too slow and the damage output once you have sword and shield elementally charged into a full axe combo is ridiculous.

So far with Rise I'm trying out the new version of Hunting Horn. Of all the weapons, this is the only one they seemed to have given a full overhaul. Instead of just being a big, slow, weighty horn, it's more like a break-dancing guitar axe now. You're also not required to perform a page of sheet music to activate it's abilities anymore.



Is anybody else getting disconnected from multiplayer often? My internet is like 60 MBPS, but I keep getting dropped today. Weird.



Alrighty, I've now slain all the 3 star monsters and about to take on the first Rampage quest tonight.

Tried the charge blade against Kulu Ya Ku and oh man, I definitely have a new shared main! This thing is a freaking beast once I got the hang out of it. Sword and Shield is my primary but I'm also using the lance, gunlance, dual blades, and as I said the charge blade.

And holy freaking cow, Sandy Plains man, wow! Not only is the best looking map so far but they did such a perfect job of adapting the general theme and some of the landmarks of its original MH Tri incarnation into a huge, seamless, and multilayered environment.

Glad that charge blade clicked for you.

I didn't realize that Sandy planes and flooded forest were based on tri but went there to just check and  now I'm hit with another wave of nostalgia.

One of my friends who just started working had said that he didn't plan to buy a switch and monster hunter rise to save for moving away from home. Yesterday he sent me an image of the monster hunter switch bundle.
