    Where the fuck are the "??? Rathian tracks"? I just killed one and it didn't progress the story at all. Still stuck at the same spot.

    you have to go to all areas to find all the other tracks
    just do sidequests etc in the other areas while searching for those tracks

    I'm getting annoyed by the amount of players I encounter who don't understand how capture works. Too many try to use traqs and traps early or trying to use traps on elder dragons.

    Those tracks are in all the areas. If need to find enough of them to fill the research bar to progress the story.

    Do you have to go into the high rank instances of the areas to find the tracks, or do they appear in either?

    I don't know if the tracks appear in the low rank version of the areas. I stayed in high rank once I got there.

    Word up, thanks. Reason I asked is because I was helping friends catch up in low rank stuff and it didn't seem like I was making progress.

    I'm thinking of getting this game. Usually, I have a pretty good idea whether or not I'm going to like game before buying it, but not this time. Is this comparable at all to any other type of game?

    If you played Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice and God Eater it's comparable to those.

    First play-through has been great!!
    Running dual swords, HBG, and LBG...though I haven't been impressed by the LBG.

    Dual swords were great for the beginning culling sections, but I switched to the HBG after seeing the Great Jagra swallow a male monster whole.

    The result Great Jagra...ended up catching the Scarface special:

    Kulu-Ya-Ku on the other hand was a pain in the ass with the LBG!!
    Bastard made me criss-cross the map twice, and nearly had me run into a fucking Anjanath!!


    So I'm taking a break and watching some guide videos.

    I'm farming diablos right now and bragging aside, I really don't see what everyone is finding so particularly difficult about him? I find he's been toned down a LOT since previous games.

    He's not difficult, he's a pain to fight.

    Cephalos
    Plesioth
    Barroth
    Gypceros
    Brachydios

    A short list of other monsters who fit that description.

    G1 Rathalos was an annoying one as well. If you didn't headlock it he will time scam you.

    That fight is made harder than it should be by having to avoid exploding slime. That's in the same vein as the ground monsters' constant burrowing and Plessi jumping in the water.

    Best monster is Stygian Zinogre, btw.

    Oh okay. I thought it was locked behind a mission.

    Well then I will be taking a break from the main story missions and just do nothing but resource grinding.

    I'm more annoyed at the players who don't understand that you can capture outside of capture quests. I mean, fuck idiots who a) mess up a trap by attacking a limping monster, drawing it away from the trap, b) mess up a trap by attacking a sleeping monster before I can set up the trap, c) fucking wail away at a trapped monster, hitting me out before I can toss tranq bombs. Tranq ammo has been a lifesaver for the latter. Two shots and the monster's down for the count. Works so fast, I'm guessing these fuckers probably don't understand why they can't carve shit.

    goddamn, man... Anjanath is the first ridiculous monster in the game, I see... only time I even came close to beating that piece of shit so far is when Rathalos showed up to beat his stupid ass for a while... I should've clipped that, actually... Anjanath got picked up and body-slammed for 705 points of damage. It was delicious to see :clap:

    *Lame thing about "Pookie" though... you can't even enjoy those moments, since he's such a wimp... Pookie typically flies away with the quickness when something bigger than him starts attacking.

    *I gave the Gun-Lance a 2nd chance yesterday and finally I kinda like it... other weapons are still more interesting/fun though.
  • d3vd3v Coughing DAT PINK SPIT Joined: Posts: 37,405 mod
    Anjanath is the first one that's that aggressive, going after you like you looked at his girl wrong.

    If you're solo, it really helps to learn all the environmental stuff - dropping rocks on his head, getting him stuck in the vines, etc. And when he runs off to sleep, hit him with a shock trap and then tranq bombs to capture him.

    I'm still on low rank because I'm a lazy fuck. Getting there, though. Getting there. I'm thinking of gearing myself full ways into insect glaive abilities like Airborne and Master Mounter, just to fully specialize myself.

    EDIT: I think I can get Master Mounter and Jump Master by getting my greasy mitts on a Rider's Charm. I know what's on my to-do list now.

    I died not knowing at my level the bombs are a OHKO. Was on a hunting quest too...
    Then I was like alright can't fuck with this mofo. Proceeded to grind and join quests/sos just to have that bitch nose dive into the squad leader and end the quest...so...many...times...

    I love this game.

    I had that thing interrupt my quest for the first time recently. KO'd one of my party members instantly and then hung around being a dick. It ignored my dung bombs for the most part.
