See topic.

I am also a fan of Hammers, having a Bull Hammer, a Plume Flint, and a Ludroth Splashhammer (soon to be upgraded into a Vodyanoy Hammer.)

However I need three Machalite Ores (easy enough to find) and one Rathian Plate to finish my Rathian Armor set.

The way I fight her is I focus on hitting her head, which I believe is what I need to break to get the Plate.

I have captured her, but I prefer fighting her.

At first I thought the Bull Hammer might be the right tool - it is not as sharp as the other two hammers I own, and more hits to her face increases the odds of breaking it.

More hits does not equal more breaking.

Each breakable body part has an HP meter just like the flinch mechanic. When the monster reaches the HP meter mark for that body part, there is a chance it will break. So actually, having a really sharp, high raw weapon will break body parts quicker.

Also, getting the destruction skill will reduce the HP meter limits on the body parts, which means there is a higher chance of body parts breakign when the HP marks are reached.

I use hammers (particular, the Hunting Horn), and I see breakables fly much quicker whenever I use the higher/sharper HH over the weaker ones.

Until the wiki info gets updated all we have to go on is the data from tri. As such your best chances in low rank will not exceed 8% or so. Head break, tail carve, shiny drop from eating, and capture. Some quests give it as a reward like "Double Trouble" but unsure if that is the same from tri or not.

I do know that in high rank the chances doubled. Other than that all I can say is keep at it. For the rare drops in this game persistence is the soup du' jour.

Actually, I got one yesterday.

I went on the hunt quest, focused on her face, and when she was drooling and limping, I captured her (a valid way to end a hunt quest.)

In my rewards screen, I finally got my Rathian plate.

Normally I catch them to try to get the plates, but there have been times in which I carved them. There's a slightly higher chance of getting it with the Pink Rathian than the regular Rathian. ~Myra
