First topic message reminder :

ceadeus tail.... been farming for them and only got two (from the repel only quest)

in the decisive battle, I've broken his tail numerous times and never got a tail.... (do i actually have to go to the tail and carve????)

(got deep dragon gem almost very time..... and 2 elderdragon blood in one run too...)

or does the repel only quest (save moga village) have a higher drop rate???

MAJOR BAD LUCK?

I'd say Lagriacus, as it is better all around:

- With that many slots I reckon you could gem in another skill, as Attack Up of any sort doesn't do much for a Bowgun.
- You also move faster underwater
- You'd get a damage bonus for Normal Shots, I think an extra 30%.
- It's also good for Wyvern Fire, as that shot type has the equivalent of 700 Fire Element, which along with the Element booster would do you a good favour.

-Attack up adds the same amount to bowguns as it does blade, so it depends on your base attack if it is worth it or not compared to other damage increasing skills. Affects most non-explosive/non-status ammo except dragon shot.
-sure
-Normal S boost is 10%
-Wyvern Fire has a small/medium fixed element portion then the bulk is based on bowgun attack power and unaffected by monster hitzone. Element attack up would not affect damage much at all for any wyvernfire shot, you need stuff that boosts attack like attack up or adrenaline or fortify.

I'd recomend a pierce set with Jaggid Frame, Baarrozuka barrel, and Thundacrus stock with 'blos armor and spam pierce 1 in the sweet spot. You have waist and legs free to gem in other desired skills like steadiness, evade, damage boosts, etc. Lagi works fine as well to boost element shots but some of the best skills and gun parts for this style are not available in low rank (you have to change guns a lot to target monster).

Google search for ways to help fix this. Most routers can be configured to open up ports, change channels, change security modes, etc. Depends on your router. Set the Wii up for wired connection also helps.

Even once you set your system up as best as possible, the city host may have a terrible connection and keep booting you. Not much you can do about that. Odds are if you see a lonely player on the first page of cities on a full gate he probably has a connection problem of his own.

I'm trying to remember what the error code is. You'll know it's the city host and not you if after you get the error code, you're sent back to the City Gate, and not back to the Mode Select. If you get sent back to Mode Select, it's your connection.

The best WiFi settings are to set up Port Forwarding on your router, and setting the Wii to have a Static IP Address on your router's LAN.

Before I did this, I could play MH3 for 15-30 min, and watch Netflix on the Wii for about the same amount of time, before I lost my connection. After, I could play and watch for hours without interruption.

Steps to take:

  • Google your router's manufacturer and "Port Forwarding." Follow directions.
  • Google your router's manufacturer and "Static IP Address." Follow directions. Write down the IP address that you're assigning to the Wii. You'll also need the Subnet Mask (usually 255.255.255.0) and the Router's IP, which typically is ###.###.###.001.
  • While you're in the Router's settings, get the Primary and Secondary DNS IP addresses. These come from your ISP.
  • In the Wii Internet settings, pick your Connection, and then choose Change settings. Page through the settings until you get to Auto-Obtain IP Address. Choose No, then enter the assigned IP address, the Subnet Mask, and the Router IP. Confirm these settings.
  • Then page to Auto-Obtain DNS. Again, choose No, then Advanced Settings. Enter the Primary and Secondary DNS IP addresses. Confirm.


Hope this helps. As I said, this worked wonders for me.

Hey guys, what's the most efficient dual 6* monster quest for seals?

Not the quickest, the one that gives the most, because I need a ton of them.

I heard Tragedy On The Tundra does but I don't really know.

Please don't suggest double trouble because 75% of the time i don't get ANY seals. The other 25% of the time I get 1, 2 if I'm really lucky.

I know "A Burnt Offering" does but I can never find a strong enough team for that.

I could do "A Princess's Pride" but, same problem with "A Burnt Offering", finding a strong team for it is HARD.

I really dont know how arena works, I have completed land lords on S rank with no carts anad got two barroth coins u_u

I know how you feel.

But basically, the arena will go by a random monster for coins if it's more than one monster (e.g even if it's bari and los you may only get one type of coin), carts don't affect the rewards, but they do the time. B rank will ALWAYS only give you one coin of a random type. When I did Land Lords I just missed A rank and got B rank; I just got a jho coin.

In A rank you should get 2 random types of coins, 3 if you're lucky.

In S rank you should get 4 random types of coins and an egg (For something like "Land Lords" I'd be thinking silver or golden.)

So are you sure you got S rank? Because 2 coins and nothing else is A rank rewards, if you DID get S rank, are you sure you only got 2 coins and no eggs or anything? If you didn't and it was S rank, probably just bad luck, I'm sure if you did it again you'd get normal S rank rewards.

Spoiler:
 

Well, those quests (along with Sea of Dragons) are the ONLY quests that have Seals as rewards. All 5 of the dual monster quests give 2 Seals. In addition, Double Trouble has the highest chance of additional Seals (10%, vs 1% for the others).

There are two quests labeled Double Trouble (the other being the 4* urgent), so it's possible that your team keeps signing up for the wrong one? I've seen it happen before.

Otherwise, the other quests are all equal. So run whichever one you find is easiest. Generally, those cities running them are labeling High, ~HR51, ***** (Everybody Welcome, Skilled Players only, etc).

I do find that the Trouble on the Tundra quest is probably the most commonly run, as you only need to have tactics for one monster type, Wyvern Stones are also in the quest rewards, and Barioth have the lowest HP of all the 6* monsters.

After posting the original question, reading responses, and completing several arenas, I am now convinced that time is the only thing affecting the rewards, and it affects the reward CHANCES. Getting S rank does not guarantee 4 rewards, and getting B rank does not guarantee 1 reward. But those are high probability results.

I was running the online Peco Arena solo, and I was getting times around 6 min. That's B rank, but I got 2 rewards several times (usually a Peco and a Pinnacle coin). I got 3 rewards once. I've done the online Peco arena probably 10 or so times since it came available - something to do when I can't find a city that I want to hunt in. And I could use both Peco and Pinnacle coins.

Let's assume that the ranks act like changing your luck level:
S Rank = 81% (Good luck reward chances)
A Rank = 69% (Normal luck)
B Rank = 50% (Bad Luck)

The expected # of rewards would then be:
S Rank = 3.44
A Rank = 2.79
B Rank = 1.96

Another way of putting it: chances of getting 3 or more rewards:
S Rank = 66%
A Rank = 48%
B Rank = 25%

Or chance of getting exactly 1 reward:
S Rank = 19%
A Rank = 31%
B Rank = 50%


Of course, maybe S rank uses Great Luck chances (90%)? That would put expected rewards at 3.95, with an 81% chance of 3 or more rewards, but still a 10% chance of getting 1 reward.

I like the luck system for general quests, but for arena, this is frustrating - the dual and trio arenas should pay out better. Run Wyvern Trio, get A rank, and all I get is a Barroth coin? I'd rather have a fixed # of rewards for each Rank (B=1, A=2, S=4), maybe with the Dual/Trio monsters tacking on 1 additional reward.

Thanks! And there's actually 3 double troubles.

One is a 3* Advanced.

One is a 4* Urgent.

And the other is a 6* Quest.

You could include offline "Mating Season", but this is online talk really.

Then you cant get another one, as you can only get one of those blades from the Argosy captain after your first defeat of the ceadeus. This means you can only get one once per save file.

New question:

When free hunting during a quest, if you successfully free hunt multiple monsters, do you get multiple free hunt rewards?

I ask because I'm currently farming G Baggi to make Dynamo Jewels for a Focus Hammer set. The 5* G Baggi hunt quest wasn't up, so I did the Tundra Paw Pass quest. Killed one G. Baggi, and not long after I carved it, a 2nd showed up. Not knowing, I decided to end the quest, but if I knew, might make farming G Baggi parts faster if I just run that quest (that might even be a faster way to get Bird Wyvern Gems, if cap rewards stack).

If you kill both monsters on a free hunt you get more free hunt items

yet, I think you dont get as many items as killing that monster on its quest (I dont know if I am right tho)

You have a higher chance of getting Felyne skills from the meal.
2 Fresh ingredients is more likely to net you 3 or 4 Felyne skills whereas 2 non-fresh ingredients would probably get you 0-2 skills.

Element doesn't make a difference on cutting or impact damage.

It's simple: Sword and Shield, Switch Axe, Slicing Shots, Longsword, Greatsword, Lance all do cutting damage; being able to cut a tail off.

All shots that aren't slicing and the hammer do impact damage; cannot sever a tail.

tl;dr

Yes.

Two questions:

1) How exactly does one overforge their armor? I'm currently HR 30, and have been wondering how to go about this once I'm high rank.

2) How the heck do you carve Jhen before the minute's up? At the end of the quest, you have a minute to run up to Jhen and carve him. There are different zones that yield carves, but no matter how fast I carve, I can never seem to get them all. Is there any trick to doing this?

1) Step 1: Completely upgrade your armor with spheres. Step 2: Be rank 31+. Step 3: Go to the forge and attempt upgrading again. This will show you materials needed to boost the rarity and allow for future sphere upgrades.

2) Speed Gather and/or be next to him attacking when he keels over. Body yeilds 5(?) and mouth another 3(?). Its been awhile...
