First topic message reminder :

So this has been popping up in many threads in the MH3U section, so lets put it all here in one place.
What weapon do you plan to focus on in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate?

I for one will be using the Hunting Horn and Heavy Bow Gun.

I'm curious as well to know what you guys will be using.

SnS master race reporting in ;)

As always I'll have a special love for my SnS', but I'd started using the GS almost exclusively before I stopped playing MHTri, and also used the hammer (mostly for Alatreon, decent, randie hammer users against Alatreon in my experience was almost a non-occurence), LS and lance at different times. Seen as I never played MH Unite, I've never used the Gun Lance, Hunting Horn, Bow or Duel Swords before, so will wanna try all of 'em at some point.

But still....dat SnS ;)

I have a question about the SwAx. I noticed mobility as being solid when using the axe, but you move like a turtle with the sword.

The demo doesn't show how much damage you're doing. Does the sword do more damage than the axe? How do you even figure that stuff out?

Anyone with thoughts please bless me with your knowledge! =D

I mainly used LS, lance and GS in tri, so I'll probably get some use out of them. As for new weapons, the DS looks like a pretty good bet. I'm considering trying out the HH and bow, as well.

And now for some switch-axe discussion.

Well, since we're on the topic.....

Anyone else notice that the slashes in sword mode are a bit faster than in tri? Not the mobility, just the slashes themselves. I could be mistaken, but it certainly looked more fluid and a bit faster.

After playing the demo I have a new respect for Hunting Horns, I might focus on them now. Although in the end, my forte is Sword 'n' Shield.

Now I've never used the Gunlance, Bow, Duel Swords, or the Hunting Horn. The weapon I'll use most will probably be the hammer. Now this %100 coming from my experience from TRI. That experience will most definitely change once I fight some of the new monsters, and try out the new weapon types. But if I, for whatever reason, find all of weapon types in Ultimate that weren't in TRI, junk. Then I'll probably stick with Hammer. With, of coarse LS, Lance, BG, GS, Swax, and SnS.

PostSubject: New guy reporting in!    Sat Mar 16, 2013 11:00 am

I was so happy when they announced MH3U. To make a long story short.
My first Monster Hunter game was tri. Loved it, played the hell out of it. Bougth a PSP just so I could play Freedom Unite. Loved it even more (mainly because of the bow).
And now I can play with my lovely bow online and on my TV. This will be so awesome!

So my weapon of choice is - Bow

So I think I may change up my priorities a bit. After spending a lot of alone time with the Swax, it has clearly brought my interest above the DS. So with that being said:

Main: Lance Gun Lance
Subs: Switch AXE Hunting Horn Heavy Bowgun

My top 3 of choice would be the SnS, gunlance, and the dual blades have been used to them in my many previous adventures. though i might venture out into the GS and hammer since i hardly ever play with them.

the demo convinced me to main the Hunting Horn
Seems really fun and efficient; sustained damage, KO, mobility (awesome mobilty with the speed song)
.... and of course i'll still use HAMMER, LS and Lance a lot and from time to time GS, Gunlance

I've changed my mind: I will focus on gunlances and longswords. I'll also use bows, HBGs, dual swords and from time to time SWAX and GS.

Funny thing, in a poll in Japan and among western players of the older games. Duel Swords/Duel Blades were rated as the most popular weapon among "Female" players. (Not those using female characters but actual females)

And MH is one of the more higly played games among female playes in both Japan and the west...

Interesting, dual swords are a pretty solid choice though.

Longsword and Switchaxe will probably be my mains as they were in Tri. I'll definitely give Dual Blades a try too, I wasn't able to get into them much in MHFU, but I'm hoping this gives me a new chance to appreciate them.

A Hammer and a bit of Long Sword with a side dish of Light Bowgun although I have never used a hammer before I really enjoyed it in the demo and owned the lagombi in 5 minutes, while I have used long-swords before, they have a place in my heart so I will probably never stop using them, I like the light bow gun because of the mobility and range, and the heavy bow guns 'siege mode' doesn't appeal to me at all (can only fire certain types of ammo D: still cool though)

In Tri, I used everything but the SWAX. Mostly SnS, and some Lance and Bowgun. I tried out the Bow in Unite, but I couldn't get it to work. So far, it's just been SnS for me in TriU.

Im currently using GL, HH, and DS. I have no plans to stop using them. Decided against the hammer not because i dont like it but because I never got around to it, and having that many weapons in the early game is expensive.

I'll probably hammer most of the game first, i'll try the hunting horn and throw it away 10 minutes later. I'll see what the gunlance can do, and i'll probably make one character dedicated to bowgun, or the bow if i find that preferable.
