Which quest is that?

The second to last. I have to fight an Ivory Lugicraus, Azuros Rathian, and a Brachyados in the land arena. All their attacks are 3 times stronger than normal.
I have the best equipment I can get thus far, so I think I may have to play online sooner than I thought to get better equipment, but I was seeing if anyone else has gotten that far in the single player mode.

I am thinking of getting Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate but I have no idea on which version to get. I am more leaning torwards the 3ds version (I own the original model) because of portability over the Wii U version. Now I know the Wii U version has online but online isn't really a big deal for me bit other then graphics, online and portability is there any other content (single player related) add that is in one version but not the other or do they have the same content,

Online 3ds games I own:

@SCAR392 What i did for that quest was use my slime sns. So i killed the Ivory Lagia, and when the Brachy comes with the Azure rath, just run around for a bit while they kill each other lol. If you get an opening then attack the Azure rath, because most likely he will die first. Then just take your time with the Brachy.
AS for weps or armor, i would go with some weapon with a status, because there is no one element that all the monsters have a weakness too. Dragon would probably be your best bet if you wanted to do element. But poison, para or slime is the way to go imo.
And armor, just make sure it compliments your wep, like sharpness+1 or status attack up, something along those lines. Unless your a gunner then you be running around most of the time and not shooting so much :P I would say if you want to be cheap you could use the Kelbi bow, but i dont recommend it lol. But i do recommend using it on the Alatreon :P skypiercers are hard to get!

If you want to know anything more just let me know and ill try to answer your questions!
Good luck!

@Zephren
Thanks for the advice.

@SilentHunter382
I have the Wii U version, but I would suggest the 3DS version if you have a Circle Pad Pro(XL), AND a Wii U.
The 3DS version still gives you online if you have a wired internet connection for your Wii U and use the Wii U as an access point. There's always portability, too.
I now have a Circle Pad Pro XL, which not owning was the only thing keeping me from buying the game.
In conclusion, buy a LAN adapter for your Wii U for, and possibly a CPP, to have the same game while still having ALL of the Wii U features, except HD and 5.1 PCM.

To add to what SCAR392 said. I also have the cpp for my xl. It's difficulty to play underwater without it but if you ask me the graphics and 3d are some of the best I've seen on the system. I just keep being in awe of the visuals and the monsters and how good they look. Gets me excited for Monster Hunter 4aa

Like others have said, 3DS wins for the most part, especially if you buy the extra equipment. 3D and portability are a plus overall.
LAN adapter = $10-20
CPP = $20-25
You'll be playing with the complete Wii U version if you buy the extras(CPP mostly optional). I would rather have portability, and the only thing I am missing is the LAN adapter.
It's mostly preference.
Just keep in mind that the CPP and LAN adapter for your Wii U will give you the whole MH3U for 3DS..

You don't need the CPP. Seriously....I'm 100 hours into MH3U and don't own a CPP. I've only quest failed twice. RAWR.

Also, Lan Adapter is awesome.

I'm new to the MH series. Took the plunge and bought the 3DS version on day one here in NA. Glad i did. However, it's very time consuming and requires a lot of patience in finding all the items to make better armor and upgrade weapons. I don't have a Wii U but if i did, i'd definitely get the game for it as well to play online. I'm more of a handheld gamer. So i don't mind. I just know that i'm going to have a hard time later with the bigger monsters though.

I'm still in the process of gathering my first complete set. I just need the King's Frill and 1 Melancholic Ore. Can't seem to find that one Ore. Sheesh...can't wait though to see my hunter in his new armor.

Yeah the CPP is nice but I don't own one. Haven't failed a quest and I solo'd my way to G-Rank.
@Gustoff Sounds like the desire sensor doesn't want you to get that one ore. I got all my ores from the Sandy Plains in the beginning so keep at it.

Yeah, i will. And i forgot that i had already unlocked Sandy Plains. I've been looking for that one Ore in the Moga Woods, section 4 all this time.

By the way. Besides going thru the quests to complete in Sandy Plains, is there another way to go to the Sandy Plains region without doing quests? Would it be through Neko the cat?

Yes actually. Whenever you enter a new area the very first quest is a free roam quest used for gathering all the items you want. After 5 mins goes by an item will appear in the blue box and you can leave if you are done!

@Gutstoff Now don't quote me on this but the village should have a Harvest tour quest available at your rank. If not then yes, talk to Neko (means 'cat') and head to Port Tanzia as you can go as far as the Tundra at Rank 1 quests. Just use the "Harvest Tour" quests (all harvest tours are unstable so a monster could show up uninvited and crash your party).

Has anyone gotten to the Mark of a Hero urgent quest in single player mode? I have no clue how I should combat this mission, and some advice would be helpful.

heavy spoiler ahead -----------------------------------------------------------------

Hello scar392,

i dont know if you already done your mark of heroes quest , but id like to give some advice.

I wouldnt go with zephrens advice ( although im pretty sure he is more experienced than me ) But for me i believe with bit thinking u can learn more than use cheap way like slime easy mode ( im newcomer myself and prefer to learn instead of exploit ^^ )

Personally i avoid any slime weapon, because i think they are too strong and unbalanced. ( yes im a MH noob too) MH3U is my first monster hunter game. But playing with any slime weapon is just not fun ....

So this fight is very strategical . First u fight an ivory lagiacrus alone then u have to fight brachi and azure rathalos at ONCE. oO
First i too thought oh man this is impossible i "need" online and G rank and better stuff to beat this thing.

But no totally untrue. All which is key is simple preparation and bit training. When i did it first time yes i died twice.

But with better knowledge im pretty sure its possible to do it without death. So as of userfriendliness i took any beneficial item with me 3x times each. Because if i really die 3 times i gonna need rebuffs 3 times too. So ideally u wanna go with 2 maxi potions and ancient potions. And dont forget many armor potions and damage ones ( you know mega demondrug and mega armordrug and so forth). Then of course i had 10x normal heal potions and 10x mega potions. Really if u are not that good at dodging at the moment like i am u gonna burn mega potions fast ^^
So to soften the challenge i took 10x honey so i can turn my normal potions instantly to mega potions.

In my thinking the most deadliest enemy in this fight is the brachidyos. So naturally i brought a weapon which is most effective vs the brachi to take him out as fast as possible.

My gear was high rank ivory lagiacrus set for that blightdefense. With that armor set u are immune to fire , ice , water and lightning. So u dont need nullberrys or have to constantly dodge to turn out the fire. My weapon of choice because i played whole game with switch axe class was the Inceadeus. Which was upgraded one time to great inceadeus, which is totally doable in this state without any online or g-rank crap.

The first fight vs ivory lagiacrus is after abit training fairly easy. The most important part is not to just go and button smash like a berserker. Watch the lagiacrus and let it come to you. Wait for openings. Sure sometimes u are in the heat and want to just stab his belly. But its better to always do just 1 or 2 swipes and then dodge or wait his attacks again. Its mostly patience and anticipation.
The brutal part is the second phase where u have to fight azure + brachi at once. My strategy was to use flashbombs to ideally paralyze both at once. Sometimes u get even the azure rathalos in crashing on the land.
Id say ivory fight takes about 15 minutes. And until then u should have gathered all support items from the crates. Lifepowder , simple flashbombs etc
So i went beneath the brachidyos and mostly stabbed his belly in sword mode. Because the great inceadeus got water element it got maximum efficiency vs slime beasts. So second phase is mostly a survival mode. If its impossible to attack the brachidyos then just take your distance and dodge like a mad man. Those two monsters damage each other too. But ideally u just kill the brachidyos super fast. Of course 2 traps help too. The shock and the pitfall traps.
So basically you stuff your inventory with tons of support items. You survive and have patience and kill the ivory lagiacrus. And either rush the brachi in second phase to kill it fast or survive and let the monsters damage each other.
biggest weakness of rathalos is flashbombs , with those u can make him crash while flying
My strategy somehow worked , well ok i died twice, but only cause im still not good enough in dodging ^^
Hope it helps. Several attempts for training wont hurt. Of course u could take the long road go online do g-rank craziness and come back with uberequipement.
But in my view neither slime weapons nor uberequipement are necessary ( and take some fun out of hard fights).

probably end of spoilers --------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope that wall of text helps ^^ :D

Ps I: i dont know but in the mark of hero quest are all those monsters of G-rank quality or totally out of the place ?! I ask because i still havent met any of those monsters in g-rank in port tanzia

Ps II: whats your most nostalgic moment ? Mine was when i fought the giant duramboros first time ever in single player ( you know when kayamba gets lost in flooded forest) I had no clue what to expect and no clue about weak spots. So i went there with my dragonmaiden switch axe as usual and hack and slashed. Until 40 minutes passed. And guess what ? I used all whetstones and dropped to red sharpeness. So in axe mode my weapon couldnt even hurt that beast. This fight was so satifying because i still beat it with like crazy 30 seconds left !!!! I had to fight that thing whole time with sword mode with my dragonmaiden switch axe and constantly spam that elemental charge power attack. Otherwise axe mode and normal sword swipes would just bounce of and do nothing. Phew this game is crazy ^^

now really cheers

@Stereoman I can agree on basically everything you said :P you went in depth and into the specifics of what to do which is great! all the strategies mentioned by you are a great way to tackle the quest. Being prepared is the best thing and will determine if you complete or fail the quest. I did the quest again so i could have fun with it and i did it with the green narg bow :P funn stuff

ps. @Stereoman im glad you could see me as an experienced player! its true tho lol I've played MH, MH2, MHFU, MH Portable 3rd HD, Tri, and now MHU: good 300+ on every game execpt 3rd
