The reason my Wikia account is Cottonmouth255 is because Cottonmouth25 was taken.
I first got interested in Monster Hunter many years ago, when I watched my friend take out a Plesioth. Now, I have rekindled my interest and am now a proud expert at Monster Hunter Tri. I am also working on Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.
My MH nemesis is a Gobul known to me as Taka. He gave me such a hard time when I first fought him (four times I failed, and then I finally won with two KOs), I made him into his own character. Here is a list of criteria that you can use to deduce whether or not you are fighting Taka...
~Taka abuses his flash attack on land. He even does it when his lantern is broken.
~He also charges and bites often on land, almost never giving you a chance to recuperate after one of these attacks. When you get up, he's already readying another attack.
~In the water, he sticks to melee attacks, and dislikes using his flash or vacuum attacks.
~Focuses on you, not Cha-Cha, offline. Online, keeps switching his attention to a different hunter.
Anyone meet Taka? Tell me.
Anyway, I am also writing a MH3 FAQ/Walkthrough, which will be posted on Gamefaqs eventually.
I'll try to participate in a lot of MH discussions, as I am a huge fan not only of the games, but of the monsters and their biologies.
