    Is this game too easy? Iím on 4* monsters and havenít been carted once, or even ever been in any serious peril. Not bothered maximising armour and stats as simply havenít had a reason too... yet.

    Start the hub quests, they have more punch and take a lot more punching. Even then, we're waiting for the release of G-Rank for things to get really nasty

    At first I thought that the rampage mode is fun distraction - but after a few it's just chaos in a bad way in my opinion. :(

    Only done the one rampage so far, but yeah - definitely not what I come to MH for. Glad to see the back of it, so not keen to come up against another.

    I ended up doing Goss Harag and Tigrex last night. Goss Harag was quite easy.
    And I did a low level rampage. It was OK, but the AI seem to do very little.
    Feels like it would be better with four players, most of whom know what they're doing*.

    *I don't yet count myself in that group. I keep forgetting to guard when on a ballista. And I don't feel like I'm using the cannon effectively.

    If MH is a game we love because the mechanics are so badly explainled, then we should love Rampage.

    There's a rampage objective of "inflict elemental blight". Cannons have elemental ammo. But you have to keep you finger on Y to charge the ammo up prior to firing it to make it powerful enought to inflict elemental conditions on monster (and when you do fire, its area-of-effect so you can hit multiple at once).

    Its definately a part of the game which needs a proper guide. Don't use Fugen early.

    I've not seen many Youtube videos covering the Rampages so far...
    Would have thought Arekkz, Paradise Central or TwoSixNine would have done one by now.

    Ha!!
    I stand corrected. :)

    wirebugs are great fun aren't they. Can anyone let me know if we get more in the future as zipping around the map with them is the best.

    If you want the Amiibo DLC but aren't fussed about owning the amiibo, then aliexpress is your friend:

    Too many buttons for my brain to comprehend right now.

    I keep drinking potions by randomly pressing the wrong button to the extent I have to leave that on whetstone.

    You're using SnS right?
    That's the only weapon that allows you to drink potions with weapon drawn. :)

    That's kind of what I thought about the expeditions in 4.

    You should be using the shortcut wheel for potions and sharpening. If you sharpen from the shortcut wheel, you don't lose time putting your weapon away first.

    And make sure you change the control setting for the shortcut wheel so that its type 2, which means you need to click the R stick in order to action the thing you are pointing at.

    Hit a really odd snag with this.

    Every time I try to use the join request system to join someone else's hunt, I get the hunting horn sound as if the hunt is going to launch, but then I get booted and the message comes up that I can't join the hunt because it's ended.

    Just tried joining 5 different hunts and got this response every time. It's been working fine up until today.

    Anyone else experiencing this / have any idea what the problem is?

    Maybe it's a mark of respect for Prince Philip dying.

    I was doing sos missions earlier, so you might be just picking missions which are over too quickly. Launch the mission yourself from the hub gal, and choose the option to let other players join you, and see if any do.

    Making him a monster in MH Rise would be the ultimate mark of respect, though.

    So now it seems that if I start a quest with a join request open then it shuts down after a couple of minutes, and if any friends join my lobby they lag and then get booted. So in other words the multiplayer part of the game is completely b0rked for me.

    I've googled and it seems that a few other people are experiencing the same problem. I've tried a few obvious things (resetting the game, resetting the console, resetting my router) but none have worked.

    Possibly my broadband is crawling for some reason, or maybe it's an issue baked into the game (I didn't have any problems until the latest update, which is odd). Either way I'm currently stuck playing the single player part of the game, which isn't much fun. Not thrilled.

    Have you ran an connection test on your Switch to see your NAT type?

    Some NAT types can hinder online play and possibly boot you or not let you connect.

    @brokenkey

    The shortcut wheel?! Argh

    ďClearedĒ 2* last night woohoo. Expecting the difficulty to ramp up now as I really suck at the game but itís been ok so far.

    Must admit Iím lost on crafting right now, made a better sword and shield but also have enough parts to craft a full set of baggi armour but no idea if I should or not

    I checked that. I'm on Nat Type B which is apparently the one you should be on.

    @THFourteen

    Don't worry about being too tactical with crafting, especially early in the game. I mostly focus on crafting sets that up my general armour rating, but over time I like to try and collect full sets of every armour type.

    Oh yeah, but one tip I will give is that you should wear a full set of whatever armour you go for, cos that often gives you extra buffs.

    Haha yeah, itís not helped by the fact that I am a hoarder in any game I play.

    Will craft the baggi armour even though it looks like itís really only good for ice stuff, because I ďfarmedĒ the parts for it... meaning I did one extra side quest to get baggy pants lol

    Nargacuga armour is pretty sweet for the later village quests.

    No set bonuses yet, I assume they'll hit when Grank lands.

    I'm a bit miffed that for pretty much every melee weapon, Nargy is the best one. You can make a case for Mag, but that takes a 3% drop gem and then you probably want another gem for the Mag gloves as well. Looking forward to the patch.

    This is mostly because I find Nargy a bit of a pain with his tells leading to 1 of 2 entirely different moves
