Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Community Tips thread

1348 Views 19 Posts DS Gaming
Hey guys, thought I'd get a thread started for all Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate enthusiasts to share their tips and tricks or newbies and veterans alike. MH3U is a massive game with incredible depth, so I'm sure there's some stuff many players know or have figured out that others - n00bs like me included (I played Tri back in the day but have never been great with the series) who would love to know. :)

Your upper instructer in the tavern gives you 1z when you reach HR3.

Koji Tip#1 Bring your own Potions (bought or created from herb+blue mushroom) [Rage]

Koji Tip#2 Bring MEGA Potions (created from honey+potion) [Rage]

Koji Tip#3 Bring BOTH Potions [Rage]

Koji Tip#4 REMEMBER TO USE POTIONS TO KEEP TOPPED UP [Rage]

Koji Tip#5 Don't trust Koji he's shady [Shifty]

But seriously if you want advice for something more specific I'll try to halp, ain't nobody got time to make a list.

Ajajaja.
tip#1 like koji had said above allways have potions and mega potions

tip#2 as well as potion you should AWAYS have theses in your pouch whetstones, antidote, well-done steak and mega dash juice
- Read the manual. You know, the book that comes with the game? Yeah. Read it.
- Carving while crouched decreases carving times
- You can skip movies you’ve already seen with the + button.
- The armour skill “Status Attack Down” will make you need to throw more traqs than usual to capture a monster.
- Picking up Wyvern Eggs will make Rathian and Rathalos come to the area where said egg is.
- Rolling off a small ledge like the ones in Tundra Area 6 will cancel landing lag.
- Never stay in front of Rathalos. If you do, you will die.
- Breaking certain parts of a monster can disable it. For example, breaking Barioth’s wings can make it fall over on occasion. Cutting tails will also reduce the monsters range.
- You can only lay one trap at a time. If you lay a trap and the monster walks out of the room, you won’t be able to lay another trap until it disappears.
- To finish your urgent online quests, you must be the one who starts the quest.
- Never sell monster materials. You never know when you’ll need those Great Jaggi hides you just sold.
- Sonic Bombs affect monsters that can dig, such as; Gobul, Diablos and Delex, Agnaktor, and Uragaan (Surprisingly they don’t work on Barroth). If they’re not in rage mode, they will pop back up and flail around for a short while.
- Sonic Bombs affect certain other monsters in different ways. Royal Ludroth and Lagiacrus are staggered when they’re used underwater and they will disrupt Qurupeco’s songs and calls.
- The bowgun ammo Crag shots act like Sonic Bombs
- Meat will turn different colours while you’re barbequing it. Each colour represents Rare, Well-done and Burnt respectively.
- Use skills that correspond with what weapon you are using. No point using that Auto-guard charm on a Switch Axe.
- Deviljho’s saliva lowers your defence.
- Dung Bomb’s free players who are pinned.
- Dung Bombs also make monsters leave the area. Don’t hit it until it does, however, or unless it’s clear it isn’t leaving.
- Gobul can be fished out with frogs.
- Jhen’s back can be mined. It yields Pelagicite Ore and Mohran materials.
- Barioth and Diablos fly for a short period of time after escaping a Pitfall Trap. They can be Flash Bombed immediately for great effect.
- You can “duplicate” certain items by starting a Harvest Tour quest, giving said items to a friend, and abandoning the quest. Once your friend comes back, he will have your items and you would have kept yours.
- Some large monsters won’t notice you if you’re crouching.
- Qurupeco’s songs can be interrupted and you and your teammates will receive the benefits.
- Gigginox can be poisoned.
- Keeping your health as close to full as possible will prevent you from carting if a monster manages to combo you. (Assuming you have enough defence, of course)
- Barroth’s head crest can be broken and carved if you keep hitting it with impact damage. Cut, shot and explosive damage will not work.
- Traqs cause Traq status. If you throw two traqs before the monster walks into the trap, it'll be captured immediately.
- Don’t cook steak in front of Barioth.
- Those friggen annoying cats will always steal Felvine first if you have it in your inventory.
- There are secret shortcuts in the camp on the Deserted Island, Flooded Forest and Sandy Plains.
- All parts of a monster have a certain stagger limit. Once this limit is reached, the monster will “stagger”. Staggering often has a special effect, for example, staggering a leg of a monster will cause it to fall over.
- Use Bounce Bombs to deal damage (and hopefully stagger) a monster when it is flying away.
- Bounce Bombs aren't really worth using since they deal very little damage.

- Bomb, Ballistae, Cannon, Crag and Clust base damage:


DISCLAIMER: These are TRI numbers, but it's likely Capcom have kept them the same.

Barrel Bomb S: 20
Bounce Bomb: 20
Crag Shot Lvl 1: 20 (+ some fire damage, impact damage and KO/Exhaust damage)
Barrel Bomb S+: 30
Bounce Bomb+: 30
Crag Shot Lvl 2: 30 (+ some fire damage, impact damage and KO/Exhaust damage)
Ballista S: 30 per spear. Total of 60 if both hit.
Crag Shot Lvl 3: 40 (+ some fire damage, impact damage and KO/Exhaust damage)
Barrel Bomb L: 80
Clust Shot Lvl 1-3: 100 (+ some impact damage)
Cannon Ammo: 120
Barrel Bomb L+: 150
EZ Barrel Bomb L: 150
Anti Dragon Bomb: 400

Note:
The armor skill Bombardier increases bomb damage by 50% and makes bomb combinations 100%
The Felyne Bombardier skill increases Crag shot damage by 1.50x and increases Ballista and Cannon damage by 10%
The sleeping x2 modifier applies to all bombs (Except Anti-Dragon of course). So a LBB+ boosted by Bombardier with the 2x sleeping modifier will do 450 damage.


- Armour Shots Lvl 1 and 2 grant the armour skill Windproof (Lo) and (Hi) respectively and boost your teammates defence for a short period of time.
- The Ballista Binder and Hunting Gong are used to stop Jhenny Moron from attacking the Dragonship.
- The farm is a great way to make money. Farming Nulberries and selling them should be sufficient for anyone in low rank.
- If time runs out on your quest reward screen, you will lose your rewards.
- Psychoserum marks the monster on your map for a short period of time.
- You can buy certain things like Thunderbugs from Granny Go-To.
- You can skip through unnecessary NPC dialogue with the “b” button.
- On the weapon icon next to other players names, it will flash and show an eye repeatedly when that player is in a room with a large monster.
- Don't run behind Gunners to heal or sharpen weapons. They are not your personal shield.
- Alatreon can get stuck in some parts of the environment when he uses his dragon charge.
- There is a special area in the Tundra which you can get to when doing High Jho.
- Felvine Bombs used on monsters stops cats from throwing bombs at you/stealing your potions and whetstones. You can use Felvine Bombs on the cats too, but this will only make them high. (srs)
Information gotten from my Tri guide that I made back in like, 2010. You can read it here: www.another-castle.com/...

Most of the information is still relevant for 3U, but I've modified or deleted tips that aren't relevant at all.
Ain't nobody got time to read that, Kuro :E
They asked for tips, they got tips.
 •  Ping the map much as possible when you set a trap.

Don't get me wrong, they're good tips, but when I started reading it I thought, "Hang on, I don't play Monster Hunter, why the **** am I reading this? Cryingface.jpg" then I commented with that (love)
