Lust After this New Monster Hunter 3 Longsword

Posted by James Newton

Rising Soul up for two weeks

Monster Hunter Tri's event quests keep on bringing the new content, with the new quest Sea Power letting qualified hunters grab themselves the new Rising Soul sword. Fancy your chances? Here's the lowdown straight from Capcom:

The new event quest, Sea Power, throws you into a battle versus two Lagiacrus. This quest is definitely made for seasoned hunters. First, you'll need a hunter rank of at least 40 to join the quest. Second, it's in the water arena. It's sort of like swimming in a kiddie pool with your three friends and a 6,000lb blue alligator. Once you beat the crap out of the first Lagia, you'll be immediately pitted against another.

But hey, it's for a great looking Long Sword. And remember, if you're not hitting your friends when you swing your Long Sword, you're not doin' it right.

The event quest is available in Monster Hunter Tri online right now, and will be up until July 17th. You'll need five total Lightning Tickets to craft the Rising Soul.

Good luck and good hunting.

@SoulSilver IV
That's because the first 4-5 hours or so are some of the most boring hours you'll ever play. After that is when the game starts to get amazing.

Anyway, I got this sword day one and I'm loving it. I feel so hardcore with it.

I'm not opposed to using a long sword and this does look beautiful... but I would have to multiply my hunter rank by 10 to even try this quest out. It sucks that I only have one friend who plays this game and he doesn't even play that much, since he resubscribed to WoW. Why pay to play online when you can have all the online monster hunting action you want for free?

Can i just say am hr47 and i find it incredible hard find players who are willing help me out on (sea power). I badly want this long sword! but i cant find anyone who is willing help sumone else? most people on there are selfish or crap and dont understand the most basic survival techniques like not healing right in front of charging lagiacrus!!! :(
