I know this has been done before by other people but i just wanted to post mine.
Hi, my name is Soulmark (not in real life) and i am gonna do an SnS Guide.
I am not going to list all the attacks, moves, combos, etc.
Why choose SnS?
SnS is a great weapon if it's in the right hands of a skilled hunter meaning you don't just get a sword a start swinging it around. The SnS is known for it's high element/status, but it has horrible raw dmg. The SnS is the most fastest weapon so why not use it. It's also very fun to use.
Which SnS should i get?
Alatreon Star - Highest sharpness SnS
Blazing Falcon - Best Fire SnS
Almighty Dahaka (P) - Best Para SnS
Nardebosche - Best Ice SnS
Morpheus Knife - Best Sleep SnS
Royal Ludroth Claw - Best Water SnS
Toxic Fang - Best Poison SnS
Divine Exodus - Best Dragon SnS
Takemikazuchi (G) - Best Thunder SnS
Overall i think the top 3 SnS are:
1. Alatreon Star
2. Morpheus Knife
3. Blazing Falcon
G. Jaggi - Since this is your first boss fight you don't have any element. So i suggest using the Hunter's Dagger until you can make your G. Jaggi
SnS. Use no armor
Qurupeco - This is your first flying monster. For this battle i suggest using your Commander's Dagger. Use full Jaggi set
R. Ludroth - Your first underwater monster. For this battle i suggest using Commander's Dagger (or maybe Hydra Knife) and if you can Qurupeco Chopper. Use full Jaggi set.
Barroth - The most annoying monster you'll ever fight during your "noob" times. Use Royal Claw and full Qurupeco set. Dodge well.
Gobul - The giant fish monster. He's pretty big so watch out. He can be pretty sneaky sometimes. Use Barroth or Qurupeco set and Qurupeco Chopper.
G.Baggi - Just like the G.Jaggi only it can spit out sleeping stuff. Just use Jaggi set and Qurupeco Chopper. Then upgrade to Hypnos Knife.
Rathian - This is an pretty easy monster. Use your brand new Hypnos Knife and keep sleep bombing it until it dies and watch out for her tail. Use G.Baggi set with Hypnos Knife.
Rathalos - Same with Rathian only it doesn't have that deady poison tail it has poison claws. Use Rathian set with Royal Claw+.
Gigginox - The most most poisonous monster. It is one deadly monster. Bring lots of antidotes and use Rathian set with Djinn.
Barrioth - The monster that is basically an SnS. Very fast so use Rathian set with Djinn.
Uraagan - The monster i don't even suggest using SnS for. But i would use Rathalos set with Royal Claw+.
Diablos - If you plan on killing this solo with a SnS you are mad. So for full support use Barroith set with Hypnos Knife.
Lagiacrus - The thunder dragon :O. It's shock is as deadly as the Agnaktor's fire beam. Use Barrioth set with Djinn.
Agnaktor - If you get hit with his Fire Beam it's almost a instant kill. Use Uraagan set with Royal Claw+.
Ceadeus - At last the final offline boss. Use Lagiacrus set with Djinn. Bring lots of buff items.
Alatreon - Final online boss, bring flash bombs, might seeds, bombs, etc.
Use Ceadeus set mix and use Morpheus Knife.
Jhen Moran - The giant dragon beast. It takes a God to solo a Jhen with a SnS. Use Ceadeus set with Nardebosche.
Deviljho - This is the most feared monster in Tri, meet the Deviljho!
Use Ceadeus mix and Alatreon Star.
Will post more, im getting tired.
Well this is Soulmark signing off hope you liked it, peace!
