    Man, the late part of VR4 is just filled with horrible choices. After you beat Najarala:
    Your primary objective is an Expedition vs. Gore Magala. Without your palicos, for plot reasons.

    Hmm. What else you got?
    TWO Nerscylla? TWO Gypceros? Fuuuu—

    I am not doing those without my cats!

    Like the only remotely reasonable quest is to hunt a Rathian.

    Well, that expedition isn't nearly as bad as it seems. Just bring a full potion load and you'll be fine.
    It's only repel, and fairly low damage it seems. Plus, you get kitty back immediately.

    How does online work in this game? Can I join other peoples' high-rank quests, or do I need to grind out low-rank before I'm eligible?

    You'll need to grind it out. The higher the rank of the quest, the higher the minimum HR to join.

    I've never played a game in the Monster Hunter series before this one, but after playing through the demo a few times, I decided to give it a shot. I've now put about 6 hours or so in, and man am I hooked. This game is going to kill my life.

    I'm starting to get the hang of the system, just finished crafting my Jaggi set. There are just so many aspects to the system that the game doesn't explain at all. I don't understand what the guild quests are. I registered two of them, but they only show up in the gathering hall? Are the guild quests multiplayer-only? If not, how are they different from the regular quest lines?

    Also, what are the slots on armor pieces used for? I have yet to see any options for putting things there.

    I apologize in advance for the deluge of questions this game generates. Hoping to get oriented a bit before jumping online.

    So, anyone know if there's a trick to getting Plesioth to show up? That armor is taunting me (it still has tranq/speed setup!)

    You have to get the materials from the palico fishing game.

    Guild Quests are new to MH4 as far as I know.

    They can be done solo. I believe they're different in that they get progressively harder as you complete them; the quests themselves "level up". Also, I think that the monsters that appear in them do not appear normally, but the only Guild Quests I've got so far are Velocidromes so I'm not 100% on that.

    Slots are used for decorations. You'll learn about them as you help out Harth.

    The monsters are exactly the same as what you register. You can get some quests with any monsters you've unlocked in single player. You can also earn relics in these quests which are random pieces of gear with random stats/skills. They are not part of the progress (at least for me so far) in the actual story but more for grinding for materials and rare gear.

    No idea. The parts where it's on the ground are... yeah. Though you can climb up a bit since it's all low attacks from it. The rest isn't so bad though - cannons and secret bow weapon.

    The only trouble I had with it is that I got hit by the virus for the second time, and it was flying/approaching the bow so I couldn't do any damage to lose the virus, and that resulted in a near immediate kitty cart (but I did dragonator it). It was a really easy fight though.

      I forgot how fun and expensive bowguns are. Shooting things from cliffs feels pretty satisfying, even if there's not much functional difference compared to ancient flat elevation bowgunning techniques.

      I was worried because I really struggled trying to do ranged stuff in the demo, but going through and setting up all the options fixed things mostly.

      Spider sniper rifle looks cool and makes a good sound.

      Queen Seltas fight was fun. I had no idea what was happening most of the time, but fun.

      I have a question for the series vets re: Volcanic Hollow.
      Has the series ever re-used an entire map like this? Volcanic Hollow is literally just a palette-swap of Sunken Hollow.

      I was initially annoyed, because Garuga armour is great in FU, but it seems to be all kinds of bleh in 4U, so whatever.

      Working with the gunlance for the first time has been a weird experience. I feel generally awful at it, but I'm still brute forcing my way through the game just fine (just did a 5 monster sweep of an expedition npnp, even though the rewards hardly justified it). There's this nagging in the back of mind mind, though, that I could be going 3 times as fast if I just went back to hammers like I'm used to.

      I figure it'll be just like FU, where I got all the way to the end of HR with the hammers without every actually stunning a monster, then got stuck for a while and had to learn how to play properly.

        I'm starting to get the hang of this game, but man, attacking in this game is SLOOOOOOOW. God help me if I'm facing the wrong direction.

        Also chasing down fleeing monsters is frustrating. The paintball wears off and then you're stuck running all over the place.
