Hunting my way up to Ceadeus
It’s kind of strange how the newest part of Monster Hunter is way different from the previous games. Not just the game mechanics, but also the multiplayer-experience. It’s different from the PSP-parts where you would physically sit together with your hunter-companions, hunt huge monsters and shout stuff like “go for the tail, GO FOR THE FRICKIN’ TAIL!!”. You would compare your cool armors and weapons and discuss hunting-strategies together before facing a bloodthirsty beast. Now you just go online, complete some quests, craft better armor and weapons and that’s about it. I was really looking forward to being able to online again (like in the very first Monster Hunter game), but i have to admit it has its downsides too.
Anyway. Lately I’ve been playing offline a lot to get enough money and some decent armor and weapon to face Jhen Mohran in the Town Quest. The gear I got while playing online is pretty okay, so I didn’t face too many problems so far, even though I have to admit that Rathalos was quite a pain in the ass as I forgot to take flash bombs with me. Uragaan on the other hand was actually quite easy to take down. Anyway, I have now completed all the major key quests and am allowed to face Ceadeus in the Underwarter Ruins. Any advice for weapons or armor that is suited for the job?
