    @shamblemonkee

    Thanks gov. I thought that's what was happening, can't wait to take on something bigger now.

    Hard to say really. It does a really good job of explaining the facets which apparently is a first for the series.

    It's not instantly gratifying in the slightest but it can be very absorbing if you get into it.

    The demo doesn't really do an amazing job of selling the game but there is a lot to get across.

    I'd be up for meeting up. I need to get a bit further in the singleplayer first to get more comfortable though.

    what's the point of resources? I see the need for money, and the occasional upgrade to the farm uses resources, but the rate of resource acquisition seems so far to massively outgain the spend?

    I think you can use them to order in gathered items from regions without having to collect them yourself? Or something similar anyway....

    Resources seems to be tied with the ability to grow your own ingredients and therefore mitigate the need to go out specifically to harvest them.

    You kill stuff off mission to generate resources or convert materials found out in the field via the Chief's son in the centre of the township.

    The fishermen are another steady stream of resources. It reminds me of an RTS relationship.

    I am already something like 35h in and I still haven't been able to beat Gobul or Barroth. Even Qurupeco took like four tries.

    So, I really suck in this, but love it at the same time. Resource gathering and crafting is done so well, love it!

    An organised EG hunt would be good, I am sick of getting into rubbish rooms online

    @Lukree what weapon are you using? That can make quite a difference to the ease of the fight, but moreso the element you are using against a monster.

    I'm a newb at MH but i'e found that when fighting amonster the first few times it's best to pack a lot of stamina pots (or steaks) and cautiosly chip away being very defensive until you have a proper read of its move-set. then you can begin to devise your own attack patterns and know the real openings as opposed to feints.

    You'll still get your ass kicked a bit of course as it's quite easy to make a mistake or be overly ambitious. most times i've died it's been because i got too greedy though.

    Barroth, he mostly moves in straight lines bit has that tail flick. keep to his side, get a few hits in back off, wait for his next move, rinse repeat. try as hard as you can to not hit his head as the deflection will really open you up.

    Is this worth getting if you're 90% of the time going to be playing single player, or is it just too frustrating?

    i'm up to 60hrs singleplayer and only just halfway through the L5 quests so there's a decent chunk of content there.

    frustrating? not sure that i follow, do you mean farming mats in order to face the bigger monsters?

    single player is great, it's just takes a bit longer to get some of the rare drops because you have to kill everything yourself.

    Nothing's to stop you doing MP hunts on your own either - just a bigger challenge ;-)

    Ah ok, so MP hunts are separate anyway?
    Thanks for the info, I really liked the demo but am a bit scared the game will just be too big for me :)

    village = single player only
    port = multiplayer or crazy people on their own

    I put 200+ hours into the Wii version, and loved every minute of it!

    Not as nice as I used to be

    The only real thing I dont like is that you gring for your gear, then you hit HR6 and you realise it was all in vein, for as soon as you go into the "g" lobby you realise the gear grind is back to zero, and it is effectively starting all over again

    You are constantly grinding for better gear.
    Enjoy the fights though - the more times to take on a Gobul the more fun it becomes.

    There was one that I *never* got from Rathian, and one of the other EGers had about 5....
    And you can't gift some of the rarer items!

    Rathian plates, worst thing ever.
    I got one from about my first one and used it for something stupid, it took me forever to get another.

    I finally jumped into this game, having bought it the day it came out. It's quite a daunting introduction to the game, but i'm really getting into it. Wish the text was larger!

    @shamblemonkee I am using lance. Tried with hammer and even upgraded one to pretty good one (cannot check now which) but in the end I seem to do better with lance. I suppose autoblock helps with lance.

    I suppose I am a bit too eager to attack, should learn some patience. I am getting better, though!

    @Murbal are you seriously saying that all the port missions are supposed to be played in multiplayer? No wonder that I have been slaughtered on some of those... So, same monsters but those are more badass???

    The multiplayer monsters are 4 times tougher.

    I thought they seemed tougher.

    I would recommend people spending some time in singleplayer first before mp for that same reason.

    Me and my girlfriend finally beat that Qbird thing on the fifth attempt. It just would not die and the Wyvern was a real bastard to avoid. We felt amazing afterwards and then went on to kill the Barroth first time.

    Really getting its hooks into me now, it's managed to tear my girlfriend away from some Candycrush bollocks as well.

    I'd be well up for some EG hunts. I think I'm up to a decent enough standard as to not be completely hopeless.

    How long do you reccomend going through the single player? I've not had anywhere near enough time to play this as I hoped. I've only completed one quest lol.

    I'd say at least up to the third tier of quests. First tier mp is a hell of a lot harder than its equivalent.

    You really need to get a handle on a few good buffs before taking on anything with a Wyvern mooching about.

    Starting to get a steadier flow going now. I can take out up to two G.Jaggis at once without too much stress. I still want to try a Gunlance but I feel too invested in my long sword now.
