Still playing MH3, I didn't expect this to be this easy. I'm fighting Lagiacrus
for the first time and I haven't been hit ONCE in ten minutes of fighting, he's enraged and I'm feeling good. I haven't been carted once yet in Tri, ten hours into freedom unite I wasn't CLOSE to village rank 4, and I was still having trouble with Yian Kut-ku. In Tri in ten hours I've killed Royal Ludroth, Barroth, Great Jaggi, Great Baggi and Qurupeco without being carted at all. It must be a mix of my experience with Freedom Unite, and how Tri is easier and geared a little more towards newcomers, this is easy as hell... Feeling good about it though, it's nice to not get completely fucked up by anything bigger than a Kelbi for a change. Freedom Unite gets frustrating. Especially that goddamn G-Ranked Tigrex.
Oh, and the "having trouble with yian kut-ku" was a bit of an exaggeration, I don't know if it's possible to have trouble with yian kut-ku. Yian garuga, on the other hand... D:
