    Just wanted to let everyone know I had to update my friend code on account of getting a new system. It should be in my signature and on the spreadsheet.

      How long is the tutorial before you gain access to multiplayer? I haven't had a chance to sit down with the game just yet, I'll be putting it in later this evening, but I'm eager to jump into multiplayer fights.

      My friend at work was hyping this up to the nth degree, so I decided to see if I could just pick up a new 3ds on a whim.

      That didn't end well. I guess I'll look again next week.

        I've been playing with the Charge Blade, since it looked neat and I heard it was a new weapon.

        This thing is super fun. I just found out that you can use your filled phials to supercharge your shield / axe and make it red. I also found out that you can go into the super ultra axe move directly after charging your phials from sword, which I'm assuming is an easy way to go charge -> super ultra axe move -> cancel the move and charge your axe instead.

        This game is awesome.

        Yeah, the charge blade is super weird. It seems to keep doing different things.

        Either the monsters in this game are super fragile or its damage is straight up bonkers though.

        I was thinking either I'm awesome or they made jaggi's easier because I remember my first great Jagi was an ordeal with the charge blade? he barely got out of a zone before carved him up. I'm loving that thing and I'm not even that great with it, I actually prefer the sword and board a lot more than the axe, but its nice to have the axe when you've charged the head up for 20% extra damage and then wallop an enemy.

        I also read somewhere that the elemental attacks that the axe does with the phials give insane KO damage when you hit a monster in the head. I'll need to try that, but I'm working on just getting better with the damn thing. It's super clunky when in axe-mode, very hard to aim.

            Which weapon do you recommend for a total newbie to MH? Knowing i dont have access to a CPP at the moment.

            Also I just read that I'll need to craft armors too, so what weapon/armor combination would you recommend for a starter?

            I am not entirely sure of what is going on with expeditions/guild quests.
            Is the first expedition, with the velocidrome, always supposed to open up a guild quest that also involves a velocidrome? I assumed at first that it was, but after rereading gaijinhunter's explanation it seems like I could have gotten some other monster instead.
            Is the second one always "rare" with a kutku?
            Is the expedition not supposed to change until you do something else? I've just done the "rare" one with kutku above and the info hasn't changed.

            Also, does streetpass apply to online play? That is, if two people were to play online but not locally, would that share guild quests, palicoes, and whatever else?

              I'd say probably

              Sword and Shield
              Switch Axe (Just stay in 100% axe mode starting out)
              Hammer

              All fairly mobile without a lot of complexity as far as what buttons you need to push and stuff. Long Sword might be in this group, too.

              Lance if you really want to guard.

              Equipment sets don't matter all that much early on. Just forge whatever pieces with a good defense boost that you can with the parts you have available. And upgrade them twice with armor spheres. I guess you could use some mix of velociprey/kut ku to get the attack up skill, or tetsucabra/alloy to get defense up, but it isn't vital.

                Charge blade and alloy mail looks SO GOOD together. Also, it's relatively easy to get the first 2* charge blade since it's basically... ores and a couple fluids.

                I don't think I've had a fight take longer than 15 minutes yet, which is nice. Dropping the super duper ultra mega discharge blast on a downed monster's face? KABLOOEY, and so satisfying. That alone makes this weapon worth using.

                I'm going to move into lances at HR probably, when I can actually start making the full elemental spread.

                I really like the look of Kecha Wacha armor, but god thats an awful skill set. Velocidrome's is nice, if I could ever loot velociprey hides for it... I'm just going to rock this alloy mail for a while though probably.

                Also, you can make the Seltas faulds (3*) without any Queen drops, so... if you only care about raw armor... well, Seltas is a chump.

                HR2 get! good hunts @Zanshinretsu

                grinded out a set of g jaggi armor and a commander's dagger, jumping from 6 armor to 51 and speed sharpening is a huge buff

                all the new monsters are really unique, and surprisingly fast and can cover alot of ground quickly

                so far it seems like you always want to fight on a elevated ground, like a web or jungle vines. that way you get the second knockdown when the monster falls through

                did anyone else find that throwing is different? me and a friend threw 6 tranqs at our feet, it seems like you have to hold forward now to hold forward?

                Had three friends come over and we just played MH4U for literally twelve hours straight. Holy shit.

                I used the 3D feature of the n3DS almost the entire time too, which is amazing to me, because on the standard 3DS I found it impossible to use and here it worked perfectly. The sense of depth it adds to MH4U, a game that is very vertical at times, is very nice. The c-stick works surprisingly well and feels good in the hand too.

                The real star of the show is MH4U. The game is just great. The mechanics are solid and rewarding, the way team work between the players just naturally emerges is great. The game flow is also solid, with nice little natural breaks for people to grab some water and plan their next upgrade. I don't think I've had such an intense gaming session since college, and I'm looking forward to playing it again soon.

                2DS keeps having issues reading the SD card, but it only happens with MH3U (cart) and MH4U (digital). 3 times today, 3 times MH4U has magically not been able to detect the card right after saving to it. Thankfully it does actually save (so no progress lost). No other games do this, and the card has never had a single issue when I check it on PC, so I think the error it's reporting is inaccurate and something else is going on, like Capcom doing something funky with I/O which creates compatibility issues with Kingston cards. It's either that or the system is defective.

                I am going to try replacing the card since I got an excellent price on a micro SanDisk with the same capacity and class (thinking ahead to n3DS). I just fear it's the system and that it may not last. I hesitate to contact Nintendo for service due to the horror stories of saves not being salvageable for digital games that aren't backup-feature-compatible. That's an absurd and completely unacceptable price to pay for warranty or paid manufacturer service; so long as that risk exists, my system's warranty is meaningless.

                Sadly, this is really making me nervous, I don't know that I'll want to play MH4U until this is resolved.

                So if I forget to take a pick on an expedition, is there a way to make a spare? I seem to remember Bone + Stone used to work but I haven't found any gathering nodes that give stone mats that aren't mining nodes.

                  It's not there, but no problem - it's just a matter of advancing in the story, after you take out your first Zamtrios the option to get Scraps appears, I just found it.

                    I'm only like 1 or 2 hours into the game, but it is very fun so far! I'll need to try some multiplayer soon!
