    Greatsword is Longsword's big brother. Slow, super-damaging, chargable hits. Huge reach. You can block with the blade. One of the harder to use weapons given how slow you move when its out, and how slow you attack. But it is DEVASTATING once you know monster patterns well enough to be in the right place at the right time to unleash a level 3 charged overhead slash. Not great for elemental or status attacks due to the nature of SINGLE BIG SMACKS.
    .

    Not true, at all. Greatsword elemental values are very high, level 3 charge multiplies elemental damage by 200%, lvl 3 side charge multiplies elemental damage by 300%. Works the same for status.

    Monsters recover a bit of status tolerance one every 5 or 10 seconds. Charges are not an effective way of dealing status damage considering that most monsters will recover 30-50% of what you could dish out within the very long time it took you to deal it, and that not every hit procs the status damage. That's not to say you can't inflict status with a GS, but you're going to have to work much harder than SnS, DS, LS, Lance, SA, Bowgun, or Bow, and generally you're going to want to use your infinite combo.

    A Lv3 charge (either kind) by Alatreon Revolutio on a dragon-weak target (Rathalos for example) is out-damaged by Anguish (P), despite Alatreon Revolution having 4x the dragon element of Anguish (P) and Anguish (P only having 90 more raw power. That's without any attack boosting skills or items; when you toss in Sharpness+1, Powercharm, Power Talon, the difference only gets bigger because they boost raw attack, not element. Given two GS's with the same sharpness level, raw trumps all for GS.

    Fun Trivia: Rathalos would take less 1 point less damage than Qurupeco in their respective offline solo quests from a Lv3 GS charge (regular) to the face via Alatreon Revolution.

    Indeed I did.

    Man, Plesioth is so much less irritating now. It's so satisfying to see him dive and be able to follow the snakefaced asshole into the water to keep smacking at him.

    Everyone should just make bear armor when hitting HR. It's 300+ armor for minimal work and will last you until you get something more specialized.

    bear armor is also the G rank 'leather armor' set, so it should be made first in G rank, since it's easy to make and will always have a use.

    I set about to do a simple intro/tutorial and it ended up being 40 minutes long and I feel like I barely scratched the surface and I'm not really sure I accomplished my goal... Anyway, wdyt? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVvswL7AH7g&list=UUh0LMKwkZJPfvcN4gpWq-oA

    I just started playing last night. It's my first monster hunter experience outside of the demo. I thought you touched on some important advice for the nooby.

    1. Saving. I spent like 10 minutes figuring out how to save last night.
    2. canteen - I had no idea about making food. I don't know if I rushed through text or something but the game explained farming and boats to me, but I hadn't noticed the food thing.
    3. I was kind of curious if I should spend money on buying armor from the merchant, since it seemed like a relative steal compared to all the mats I'd need to craft it. You answered that and it makes sense eventually she will be outscaled.

    I kind of skipped over your online tutorial part since I'm not super interested in that yet. Some things that would be helpful in maybe their own video:

    1. Configuring the Wii U controller. I can tell with like 20+ different options that this can be super awesome, but I have no idea what to do here. I'll probably learn as I go but a video on this would be nice.
    2. You kind of breezed missions and never went on one. A video on these and why I'd rather do them than free hunt would be helpful. Also, I know the supply box is there but if I take everything I sometimes fill up when I'm gathering and then I don't know what to throw away. You mentioned mission supplies some staying with you. An explanation on this and if I should even be gathering in missions would be nice.

    Thanks for all your hard work making that video!

    Rathalos, you disappoint me. You're girlfriend did more damage to me than you did, she even managed to knock me out once! You spent all that time flying around and it didn't do you didly squat! I cut of your tail, destroyed your talons, and ruined your wings, and I did it all without even trying!

    You're on the cover of the game! How do you think Brachydios feel about losing his spot there now! I expect you to do better next time.
