I just recently bought MH3U and this is MY FIRST MONSTER HUNTER GAME so I'm really confused and new to all this stuff. (I have played previous Monster Hunter games on the PSP but it wasn't mine) Can anyone please give me tips? Is there anyway to acquire a weapon with unlimited sharpness?[laughs] sorry, I'm very very new to this game... I don't know if there is a thread already made for this but I made a new one as it is very troublesome to dig deep beneath the past threads. (too many T^T)

watch the animations of the monsters to see when you can attack them and when it is better to stay away from them. i think the hammer doesnt need much sharpness so maybe you should go with that. i really like the hammer. try to attack the monster with a loaded hit holding R

thank you for the tip, but I'm really bad with slow weapons for that matter XD I might try it though, thank you.

You better use lances first. Since you can use it to block attacks. That way you can get a feel for the basics of the hunt and how monsters work. Combined with a charm that you get at the start of the game (autoblock) the lance is a really good starting point (and still my favorite melee weapon). I am using a bow right now. Also, sharpness is important because when your weapon is not sharp enough, your attacks will bounce of the monsters hide.

A charm? I seriously have no idea how these work XD

See it as an accessory. You can wear one of them to give you a few skill points. You need a specified amount of skill points of a specific skill to get that skill. Like the attack boost skill: (I think, not sure on the amount of points needed) You need to have 15 points for attack up small, 20 points for attack up medium and 25 for large. You get these points by wearing a charm that has points for the attack up skill and you can make gems for that skill that you can forge into your armor. In the beginning of the game you obtain one charm that has +10 for the autoblock skill, and you need 10 points to activate that skill. So if you wear that charm you get that skill. That skill only works when you have a weapon with a shield equipped!

ahhh thank you so much XD this helps a lot.... I will be exploring these aspects.. I guess I'll have to make an Alt Character in order not to do anything stupid into my original.

Dodge. I don't care if you think you can land an attack in between the monsters, it's just not worth it.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.
