You can mine Armor Spheres using a pickaxe at mining spots. They're quite rare! You can also carve them from Konchus but it's a low drop rate.

You can combine these to get Armor Spheres:
Machalite Ore + Armor Stone
Glueglopper + Armor Stone

Hey all! MH3 Tri veteran (700+ hours playtime) and MH4U fanatic here. Add me and let's play together! My FC is in my signature.

I'm looking forward to our eventual hardcore item-limited naked runs on high rank and beyond...

Question: can we still add anyone we hunt with online as friends like with Tri? I'm maxed out on my friends list but I'll be running as Spoony whenever my system gets here that is. Most likely be online by Wednesday.

Yes you can. In fact the friends list uses the 3DS friends list, to my surprise... I added some randoms from MH4U's multiplayer and now they're on my 3DS friends list. Regret! For randoms you can just do a guild card swap instead of adding friends.

Well the Wycoon (that old trader) uses his trading network to access the previous farms available in Pokke Village (MHFU) and Moga Village (MH3) to create more more herbs and mushrooms. It does exactly what it says on the tin — give a Parashroom and you'll get a bunch more Parashrooms.

Trying to decide what armor set to get next. I have the Tetsucabra gunner set for my HBG but I'm still running the Derring set for my Horn. I don't want another Tetsucabra set, but none of the armor skill sets right now really appeal to me... except Jaggid armor but everyone has that... Armor skills are #1 imo. Defense is whatevs.

Oh man, I'm so happy I can still get my old R.Ludroth and Qurupeco armor in this game, even though those monsters aren't around. The Wycoon is awesome!

Super impressed with MH4U! This is the old MH I know and love.

Yeah, Kecha and Nerscylla are great. They both have great movement patterns and cool designs. I love how Nerscylla gets more spiderlike as you break pieces off it.

...But wait until you see Zamtrios. HOLY...!!!! Don't look the monster up and spoil it for yourself. Just get to it and be excited.

Grizzly... that's definitely not endgame equipment, trust me. Wait until you get to G-rank quests - you'll be laughing at Dah'ren Mohran.

TeeJay, you can join any Gathering Hall that's public!

Ah, looks like everyone's doing other stuff right now. Well, back to solo!

I'd go with sword & shield to start. It'll give you a good handle on combos, shows you how to guard and evade, and it even allows you to use items while it's unsheathed. Super useful for beginners to be able to chug potions without putting your weapon away. It's great all-rounder for new hunters!

Anyone up to do some low rank quests together? My 3DS Friend Code is 4098-3796-9042.

@Ralizah In every Monster Hunter game you're part of a primitive hunter-gatherer society. They took it literally, so you do both those things - hunting AND gathering. You can mine, fish, catch bugs, carve monster parts, gather herbs... There's plenty to do!

Goldenfish and Small Goldenfish are pretty handy if you're looking to make some cash, but honestly egg delivery quests or sending out ships are generally my go-to for quick money grabs.

Wow, this game has so much more verticality to it than previous Monster Hunter games. It feels way more fluid. Super interesting!

That was really fun guys! I'm gonna have dinner now but I'm up for playing later if you're available.

Re: NL Users You Never See Anymore...

HolyMackerel

You guys renamed yourselves! I knew you were tech101 but I had a bit of trouble figuring out who CanisWolfred is, haha. Long time no see buddies, I feel like I'm returning home after so long! How are you? Where are Peachy, pix, irken, JayArr, zez, PhoenixSage and theblackdragon these days? And so many other folks I got to know while I was active here. You guys are all awesome.

WARNING: LONG POST TIME (Hey, it's been like 2 years or something ok lol) (Did the bold and sub tags work lol I don't remember what the tags in this forum are)

I've been playing non-Nintendo things for the longest time now. Mostly on Steam and my PS3, because I don't have a 3DS or a Wii U. I'm starting to get that Nintendo itch again though. I've been pretty out of the loop in terms of Nintendo. What's new? I'm very seriously considering getting a 3DS XL these days! After seeing the new Mario games, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, MH3U, Layton, Ace Attorney, Zero Escape... man, it's shaping up to be a nice descendent of the DS, isn't it? Still waiting on more reasons to get a Wii U though...

I've been working on a lot of games and game prototypes. Here's one I made in February that got a bit of press. (NBC News, the Penny Arcade Report and Rock Paper Shotgun covered it!) Spacewalk is an online multiplayer astronaut simulator where you go on a spacewalk around the International Space Station! There aren't any goals, it's just a relaxing experience and an experiment I did to see what it feels like to float around in an EVA suit. You can watch a video review of it being played on the Oculus Rift here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnhkG_YsIGo#t=3m30s (The review starts at 3:30 in the video.)

I also worked on this game with some friends. Outer Wilds is a Majora's Mask-style space exploration game with simulated orbits and physics. You play an explorer from a rustic adventuring civilisation and you fly around a solar system in a spaceship learning its history and figuring out some big mysteries... and then time loops happen.

I'm going to start my final year of studies in the fall, so I probably won't have that much time for games next year. Sob. It's my thesis year so it's a little stressful but also really exciting since I'm going to spend the year working on a big project of my own design. Then it's off into the games industry for me, haha. Though I'd love to make indie games with my friends if I could. I wanna make things for the 3DS and the Wii U if possible... We're always talking about how Nintendo hasn't used the Wii U's potential at all yet, and there are so many exciting things you could do with it.

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles

Big anticipation for this! Hmm, NoA's online store still says "preparing order" for me. What's up with that? :/

EDIT: It doesn't say backordered for me... yet. You'd think they'd have printed at least enough copies for the preorders.
