Playing Monster hunter world taught me a few things, a few things I felt might be worth sharing. I am by no means an expert but they helped me out greatly. I also spent my time mostly playing with a friend not doing these things, so I saw the difference it made first hand.
- Upgrade you armor. The items you collect will be pretty useless soon anyway because you will be collecting better items or upgrading. Use what you have, and don’t be afraid to use your armor spheres. They are easy enough to get more of.
- There is no reason no to ALWAYS be working on bounties. You can be working on 6 at a time and they are always active regardless of what you are doing on a hunt. Picking ones for harvesting ore or flora (things you will be doing anyway) are quick ways to be collecting both resources and Spheres you need.
- Upgrade you Palico. This one may seem like a no brainer, but I have seen a few people wandering around in Grade A armor with weapons I have never seen with cats wearing basic stuff. These little guys are life saver, assuming you treat them right. Plus they are cute as hell.
- There are a ton of guides on YouTube for weapons, find one for your weapon of choice ( they are all viable, find one you like and use it) and learn about it. The difference between being okay with a weapon and being great with a weapon makes a world of difference. Learn from those that came before you. Chances are the weapon you like has a move or combo you aren’t aware of.
- And last but not least, unless you absolutely have to, never heal with a potion. a mega potion heals much more health and can be made with a potion and honey, 2 simple ingredients easily found. Between the ease of finding them and the ability to customize your loadout in the item box to change at the push of a button it shouldn’t be often you are healing with potions. A good trick is when you can, bring 10 mega potions, 10 potions and 10 honey with you. This will give you 10 mega potions to heal with and the ability to make more.
And that is all, I hope that helps you out at least a little in the beginning. Bets wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
