PostSubject: Bow only Solo game?!   Tue Apr 19, 2011 2:32 am

So i just picked up MHFU and got my first character to hr5 and in all honesty never picked up the bow even though it seemed like an interesting weapon. So an idea hit me if I started a new character and just used a bow how far would I be able to get? And on that note I came here looking for bow info. Such as which bows to use ( and to avoid) and which armor sets are more useful than others (like the ceanatuar for blade) so any advice/info you experts can lend me would be much appreciated. (Im looking more for personal experience not wiki info xD)

I honestly can't use a bow for shit, but there is an entire page on the Reign of the Rathalos' website, so you should check it out, it lists bows, armour and tactics.

Although I never went solo with Bow, you'd probably hit the end of the road at Lao or Shen.

Heroics + every buff possible = lawls against lao or shen since you have to be retarded to get hit by them with a ranged weapon. Overall an all bow runthrough sounds painful due to how low the damage output is especially at the beginning of the game .-. Good luck though.

Hmmm.
What about G-rank Lao/Shen?
You can't stack Heroics and Adrenaline in Unite. :I

Well so far I'm having a lot less troubles than I thought. Made most of the basic bows and am not having troubles with any of the lower wyverns. (kut ku khezu and such) But I was really worried about shen and lao. So thanks for the tips, should be at tiggy later tonight think that will be the big hurdle for me.

After tiggy it's pretty much smooth sailing for you. And dont be worried by shen/lao with a ranged weapon heroics = practical and not to mention easy and safe. They have 0 attacks that can hit you at a distance .-. so spam dem pierce shots ftw

Shen at the fortress might hit you with acid balls in area 1, 2 or 5 if you're not careful.

It is entirely possible to beat Unite using only a bow. It's just not as easy as it is having a couple of different lying around, as the bow is not suited to some monsters. Hell, the bow is also one of the best ways of taking the Fatalis, so..

I also believe that Roik is/was going through Unite solely with a bow. Last I nknow, He'd got to Hr6 at least and had finished all the main town quests

Shen is quite hard, but it's all about timing and bringing f***loads of bombs

Inventory:

I used the Black Bow I for him although the Blue Blade Bow I and the Wild Bow IV are acceptable substitutes.
Bring along Power Coatings and Close Range ones too as well as empty bottles, knife mackerals and nitroshrooms.
Also Bring along 10 Gunpowder, Scatterfish, Large Barrels, Large Barrel Bombs and Large Barrel Bombs+
Take an ancient potion and 2 max potions too (or 10 Mega Potions if you don't have either of those) just in case.
Fill the rest up with Power Juices (or energy drinks) and Combo Books.

As for Armour...

Speed Setup (Near Vital)
Bombardier (Very Nice)

Adrenaline +2 (For the Daring)
Elemental Attack Up (Handy if using Black Bow I)
Focus (Not needed)

Basic Strategy:

First time he comes towards the fortress dragonator him when he's near (After shooting him for a bit while he's strolling to the fortress)
Focus on one leg at a time, shoot it again and again until he walks near the fortress, you'll know when he's doing that as there is a great pause before he does so.
Once he is doing that get ready to put bombs down, and once he's stopped moving that leg, drop bombs and shoot immediately.
That should flinch him out of his attack and bring him down to the ground.
Rinse and repeat until out of bombs, then use dragonator and balista when and if available to flinch him.
After that the Shell at the back should be your prime target.

And Lao?

He is so much easier, just black bow to the face and back, with bombs occasionally and a mega juice when he arrives in every sector (area).

Do try and get on all of the ledges to hit his back though, it not only has a break (maybe two) it is his weakest spot I believe.

Where do I get this experience from?

Soloing the bow too, the ONLY quest so far which I found really hard, and had to swap weapons for, was the 7 Star Nekoht quest where you had to kill 20 Shakalaka and the King turns up at some point about halfway through. (I longsworded in the end)

Other than that am going through the offline guild hall quests (3 Star HR1 at the moment) and am ready for dual Monoblos Urgent for Nekoht.

Sorry for the Apocalyptically long post

Shen is easy.....Adren+2 is a total waste of a skill. Get felyne heroics imo you have to be retarded to get squashed by him...............other than that you have 0% chance of getting hit. Then just unload your pierce shots on lao's shell until the fatass crab dies. or if you really want to just butcher him get a gun with pierce shots and its just major gg from there.

Lao's just as easy stay to his side and unload your pierce shots rinse repeat till dead. When at the end of a area farcast out. He's that simple.

In my expeirence the bow will annihilate anything up to ukanlos. I haven't been able to beat him with any pre ukanlos setups, which is a total piss off since I've been able to beat him with any other weapon type pre ukanlos setup, but any ways yeah it can at least get you to the last monster ;) I don't really consider myself an amazing bower anyways so maybe you'll be able to do it.

My setup was...
Tigrex: Full genprey body kit gemmed for defense boost S. (I was a noob, OK?)
Skills: Thunder res+15, Luck boost, Defense boost S.
Sonic Bow II
All the coatings I could carry, plus the mats to make more.
My tactic was to paralyze it, then lay 2 LBB+ and 2 SBB+ at his face, then run. Did that once, beat it in about 20-25 minutes.

Naracuga: Full Monoblos S (With the blademaster helm, lol +6 attack.)
Skills: Attack boost L, Adrenaline+2.
Prominence bow II
Power coatings, books of combos, nitroshrooms, and empty bottles, as well as potions and stuff.
I didn't even need to do anything special, just shoot the hell outof him, and even without adrenaline, you can kill in about 20 minutes. It sounds harder than it is, to be honest.
