I'm much farther on it now, the Lunastra is really hard >.<
Strangely, the gravios was much easier than the basarios for me.
Right now, the easiest level 5 monster for me is Diablos.
My most used weapons are Freezing daggers, Blushing Dame and Anchor hammer.
Upgrading the blushing dame is so annoying, I have tons of rubies but I need loads of rathian scales...
Rathian ruby: 21/9
Rathian scale: 1/21
Pink Rathian scale: 1/21
Stupid rathians giving me like 4 rubies and 1 scale.
I never thought I'd see the day that I'd say "Stop giving me Rathian Rubies!"
Also I tried a gunlance once, I killed the Pink Rathian with 5 seconds to spare.
