1[Practical Hunting Lecture -Melee Weapons-]

You have gathered up materials and money, but you have no idea what weapon you should make... There must be hunters thinking this right now. This report is aimed at these hunters, and in this edition, we will cover Hammers.

2There are many who feel the Hammer is deficient because it can't guard, and has a large interval between attacks; however, the truth is that the Hammer is a truly deep weapon. Sure, it lacks variation in its combos and there is a long gap between attacks, but it makes up for it with light footwork and a wide variety of charged attacks.
3Like a Great Sword or a Lance, a Hammer's attacks are heavy and strong; however, unlike those weapons, you can run even while brandishing a Hammer. It is a weapon of limitless merits, with the ability to change with varying situations, with it you can launch any type of attack, and still be able to move with haste.
4By pressing the [R] button, you can charge up for an attack. These charged attacks can be unleashed at three levels of power, depending on how long they were charged. By charging to the final level of power, you can unleash a devastating combo while moving, or an incredible smashing attack launched from a stationary position.
5If you are executing a combo attack, you can press the PSTRI button during the combo to unleash one of two extra attacks. These attacks have intense destructive power. These attacks are believed to compensate for the lack of guard.
6However these awesome charged attacks drain Stamina if you continually charge. Since charging an attack to unleash on a wyvern takes a great deal of time, you should drink Power Juice to bolster your Stamina for the fight.
7Now I would like to talk about a few Hammers that you can attain without a high Hunter's Rank. First, I would like to discuss the Atlas Hammer. This item is considered a mid-range Bone Hammer. Obtaining the materials to craft this is quite easy, and you can expect that a variety of improvements will be possible.
8Next is the Shell Hammer. This is a strong Hammer carrying a powerful poison. It takes the strength and poison of a Basarios and strengthens it with Rathian Spikes and Machalite Ore. The poison is incredibly helpful in battle.
9Finally, let's discuss the Diablos Maul. It is made from Diablos Tail, a material very difficult for hammer users. However, by using other weapons, or maybe with some help from your friends, you should be able obtain the materials to make this weapon. A weapon whose strength and Sharpness are considered by many to be second to none.
10Light on its feet, with a variety of charged attacks. These are considered the greatest advantages of a Hammer. Care to go for a smash?
