Oh yea: Rakna-Kadaki is way too easy.

It's actually kind of funny that he's the reveal for the highest rank. Honestly would probably make more sense if Rakna was the village introduction and Goss Harag was the HR7 introduction xD Given Goss Harag in HR can be challenging at times

I dont really think any one of them is particularly challenging tbh. Even in HR the difficulty is pretty much dialed back.
I assume the difficulty spike will come later, when they update the game and start adding Elder Dragons.



For me the hardest fights so far are Nargacuga, Almudron, and Magnomalo. 

That said, I have yet to reach Rakna Kadaki, Rajang, or either of the Elder Dragons.

I hope some of the DLC monsters are Village Quests or at least not only super-hard endgame ones.

I can't stop calling Nargacuga Nicaragua, or Narcagua, but I agree that it is one of the most problematic monsters (still have to fight the remaining 6 star village monsters, though), but I insist is not as bad as Zinogre. Perhaps I have gone with that impression because I farmed Zinogre for a while for its plate (to no avail, btw).

Question: could it be considered acceptable to kill, say, Magnamalo and Rathalos in a single solo quest in about 25-30 minutes? I spend the first 5 minutes completing subquests as quickly as possible, the remaining time is me killing the mobs. I feel like I'm lagging behind, as if wasn't putting the amount of skill was demanding out of me at this point, because, while it's not super hard and I haven't failed a quest a single time, it's still challenging, a little bit too much, I find myself taking potions and using healing bugs very frequently. I have watched a few videos of people soloing big monsters with the gunlance (there aren't many, really), but I can't replicate the ease with which they kill the monsters, they are just too agile, which is the main problem. Tomorrow I'll explore other weapon, I think it's time.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Yeah Zinogre is an arsehole, I think the only reason I don't rank him among the hardest fights is that I fought him before in 3 Ultimate and 4 and he was even harder there.

25-30 minutes for a solo run is fine. Though if you are struggling with a Monster, changing weapon classes can be a good way to get unstuck. I struggled with the gunlance against Almudron but he became a lot more manageable when I switched to SnS.

Don't put performance pressure on yourself. You win the quest and all is fine. The time the game gives you is 50 minutes, so you are well below that. In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate I actually failed a quest by running out timer. It was the helicopter monster, Duramboros. In the beginning I never got close enough to deal damage. That running out timer was made worse, because I already had him limping and going to sleep, but as I engaged him then, the time run out. So don't sweat if you need half the allocated time for the quest, you are doing fine. You are not speed running or something. If you feel it becomes too easy, you can put challenges on yourself, like killing it in under x minutes or whatever.

I have just made my first sub 18 minutes Rathalos+Magna quest, and I was playing on portable mode. So happy, 'cause next target is doing this same quest under 15, which should be much easier on the TV with the pro Controller. :)



General gamer, fanboy hater

Thank you to both of you. I changed to the bow and it's certainly a nice change of pace, being able to roll with the weapon out is a blessing. Still trying to figure it out, though.

Man I just got the Magnomalo sword and shield and I am in love with it, the blast effect is so satisfying. The weapon itself looks damn cool as well.

Played Jyuratodus for the first time last night, no idea why so many MH fans seem to hate him, I found it a good fight.

Also stuck deciding between Pukei, Volvidon, and Basarios as my next set of High Rank armor, to replace my current full Izuchi set as the monsters ramp up and it inevitably becomes outclassed.
