PostSubject: Curse you Shen Gaoren!!!   Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:49 pm

Hey guys im in a bit of a pickle and could use some advice. I am currently trying to accomplish the 8 star urgent guild quest The Approaching gaoren,but i have absolutely no idea how to do it. I have to do it solo, and that stupid crab just doesnt want to die. I was wondering what some of you experts would recommend for me to use. I know his weakness is dragon but i dont know what weapon type would be best. I was also wondering what skills would be effective when battling him. I really hope you guys can help me with this, cause really really reeeeaaally want to get to G-rank.

Usually I use the lao dual swords+infinite stamina thingy (forgot the name) and demon dance the crap outta his legs.also bounce bomb plus,any other bombs as well,and bring a kitteh,and use the ballistas on his legs in final area and wounding his legs causes him to crouch that's when you demon dance him.also try to have the sharpness+1 skill and generally anything to boost sharpness and stamina.

You can't take Kitties on Giant Elder Missions. I find that bringing a Heavy Bow Gun (HBG) with pierce shots, or the "Queen Needler", with dragon shots, and the ingredients for more dragon shots is a great way to make quick work of him.

Aim for the Shell, as it takes the most damage from the pierce shots since that is his weak spot. Only shoot the dragon shots at the shell when it drops to the floor, and when you have a chance and he is on the floor, place Large Barrel Bomb+ on it's face and blow it up. When you run out of Pierce and Dragon shots, shoot the face. As a gunner, never aim for the legs, since you have good access to the weak spots.

If you possitively have to go melee on it, then gem for quake resistance and play the color flinch game on its legs. When it drops, switch to the face until it stands up again.

In order to kill the gaoren, you have to spend as much time hitting it's weak spots over the other easier to access spots.

Wish you well.

hey thanks for the tips, I had previosly used wyvern blade maple and rathalos s armor with the bomber skill gems, and it didnt end very well, so i'll try both your methods, and oh regarding the bows, im not very offensive with them, i use them for things like basarios, and diablos, things that you would dodge more than attack or guard.

Use Mazaeron's tactic: Just HBG the crap outta that shell, preferably with tons of Pierce S. I suggest you use Ceanataur armour gemmed for Bullet Limit (Shot Mix skill, Armory jewel).
Have a nice time completely stopping Shen in his tracks. Killed him in 25 minutes with the Assault Conga+ LBG with the fort at 70% :P

You're wrong about the weakness, his primary weakness is actually fire, and as I recommend to ANYONE soloing Gaoren, Quake Resistant armour, powerful fire hammer, ????, profit.

Also, you want to make ALL his legs go bright red, and when they do he'll fall to the ground for a short few seconds, in that time, just triple pound his face. Then attack any single leg until it goes blue and then he'll fall to the ground for like 30 secs-1 minute, again, just triple pound his face. Rinse and repeat until dead.

NOTE FOR FORTRESS: Don't overdo the leg damage before area 5, as area 5 is the only area he'll die in, and you don't want to spent most of the quest with him falling in areas 1 (if you bother, I personally wouldn't), 2, 3, and 4. But still try to trip him up a lot though.

TIP: Don't triple pound the legs! I know super-pounds are under-powered in mhfu, but in this fight, they're your friend, as triple pounding will be too slow to keep up with Shen Gaoren.

TIP II: ATTACK HIS LEGS FROM THE SIDE!!!! Never attack directly in front of where he will move his leg, because it HURTS.

Thx, Grash, but his post is pretty old. I killed him with smolder dragonsword and full rathalos S a few weeks ago. I am not much of a hammer user cause i cant kill a low rank kut ku with one. and his weakness as with lao shan is either equally balanced between fire and dragon, or dragon is slightly stronger.

No... fire is SLIGHTLY stronger, check the wiki, fire then dragon.

Oh well, at least you have tips for G-rank Shen Gaoren.

As for hammer, I can understand why it would be hard on a Kut-Ku as his movements are quite swift, but on a Gaoren all you will be doing is super-pounding his legs then triple pounding his face.

Point is, im no good with hammer. And thats just the way they put it (on the wiki). its weaknesses are fire and dragon. its not in order. the gunner armor is weaker to dragon than fire actually. Example, with rathalos it has ice then water then dragon. for goaren it is fire/water. there is no then. But i really really REALLY suck at hammer. ESPECIALLY in tri.
