Hunter Log Finale
Posted May 13, 2010 by ChangingFaces (191)
Hello and welcome once more, fellow and future hunters! First I’d like to apologize for keeping you all waiting, but it is finally here: the hunter log finale!
- This time I went for something different. A friend visited me, so I suggested we went to the arena. Sadly, you must be a hunter to enter it, even if they give you pre-set equipment. So we did a quick course to turn him into a hunter, which involved going to Moga village and being victim of a Lagiacrus earthquake… that’s a weird graduation ritual.
- So here’s how the arena works: you go to the arena, choose a boss available from the list and they give you 4 equipment sets to choose, one of them always being a bowgun. You can also bring a friend to fight with you.
- After turning my friend into a hunter and quickly explaining him how things work, we chose our victim: the Great Jaggi. Actually I chose him because my friend needed a little practice before taking the bigger ones. I chose the lance and my friend chose the sword & shield as my recommendation, since it’s fast and thus, makes things easier to learn.
It worked for him: he learned how to attack, dodge and run to heal himself quite fast. As for my attempt with the lance? It was a complete failure. I hated the lance.
How can something this big be practical in any way? Oh wait…
You can’t roll out of the way, just do some small sidesteps; the attack radius is so narrow that you need extreme accuracy only to hit the enemy; and it’s very slow. Sure, there’s a huge shield, but I prefer rolling out of the way than getting reduced damage. Not to mention my greatsword is big enough to be used as a shield.
- Even with both of us dying at least once due to him getting used to the whole hunter thing and me trying to make the lance work, we succeeded at defeating the king of douches. So for our next foe, we chose the Qurupeco.
This time the greatsword was available, so I decided to go with what I know I can use. My friend picked the bowgun, even after me warning him it’s a hard-to-master weapon.
He fell in love with the bowgun. And he’s really good with it too. He said it was “his experience with shooters” that helped him… whatever that means.
With me attacking on the front line (most of the time, at least) and my friend covering me from behind, we defeated the Qurupeco in no time. Not even calling some jaggis to distract my friend helped him, as I could easily smash them away with a single slash.
