Disclaimer: This is all one huge opinion. An opinion that will hopefully answer the questions of many in one fell swoop once MH3U arrives. Sorry gunners, I doubt my suggestion for gunning would help anyone. (Yes, suggestion. Singular.) You will also come to realize that I am obsessed with centering things.

This wil be a FAQ of sorts that is being made BEFORE MH3U is released in English so there will be a lot if incorrect names and labels. This page is going to be very, very long my good sir.


The main thing about this guide right now is that it is INCOMPLETE! For now, understand the tables that are provided. This will be updated daily because I need to play me some MonHan toooooo!!


The main things I am going to cover are:
Monsters: Each monster's weakness, Weapon Suggestion, Quick Strategy, Breakable Parts, Recommended Armor, a link to Guides & Carves and a video of me proving my "suggestions" true.
Weapon Comparisons: Comparing top weapons for Village, Low Rank, High Rank and G-Rank Quests based upon my own damage formula.
Weapon Charts: Charts of weapon's "sorta-true" output.
(Comparing weapon's output with my specific formula rather than going for what X weapon would do on X part against X monster on X rank.)
Armors: Recommended armor sets based upon elemental resistance first and defense second.
Note: Hitzones and monster's elemental resistances are currently being referenced from MH3 & MHP3rd, for now.


The formula I will be using to compare weapons is:
Attack Power * Weapon Sharpness / Class Modifier

While the elemental formula will follow suit with:
Element * Weapon Sharpness / 10

Note: Just like in MH3, you divide the element by 10 to get it's true output. P3rd did it automatically.

*14.28571429 is what my calculator displayed.

I'm only going to do elements as status effects are not effected by sharpness.
As in: Para weapons, Poison weapons and Sleep weapons will not be included in this.

Note: I have not found /any/ resource online stating what the elemental sharpness modifiers are.
Especially for purple, I am using my best judgement to assume that it's 1.1875

(E)lement * Sharpness
.25 .5 .75 1 1.0625 1.125 1.1875
(E) * * * * * * *
50 12.5 25 37.5 50 53.125 56.25 59.375

250 62.5 125 187.5 250 265.625 281.25 296.875
300 75 150 225 300 318.75 337.5 356.25
350 87.5 175 262.5 350 371.875 393.75 415.625
400 100 200 300 400 425 450 475
450 112.5 225 337.5 450 478.125 506.25 534.375
500 125 250 375 500 531.25 562.5 593.75

What this says off the bat is that:
1)Anything below green is negative, yet green is neutral.
2)Only blue, white and purple sharpness increase elemental attack positively.

(E)lemental Increase per Sharpness

Level

(E) Red To Orange Orange To Yellow Yellow To Green Green To Blue Blue To White White To Purple
50 +12.5 +12.5 +12.5 +3.125 +3.125 +3.125
100 +25 +25 +25 +6.25 +6.25 +6.25
150 +37.5 +37.5 +37.5 +9.375 +9.375 +9.375

500 +125 +125 +125 +31.25 +31.25 +31.25

Again, sharpness' below green are of the negative influence.

300 Increases 100% Increases 50% Increases 33.33% Increases 6.25% Increases 5.88% Increases 5.56%
350 Increases 100% Increases 50% Increases 33.33% Increases 6.25% Increases 5.88% Increases 5.56%
400 Increases 100% Increases 50% Increases 33.33% Increases 6.25% Increases 5.88% Increases 5.56%
450 Increases 100% Increases 50% Increases 33.33% Increases 6.25% Increases 5.88% Increases 5.56%
500 Increases 100% Increases 50% Increases 33.33% Increases 6.25% Increases 5.88% Increases 5.56%

One of my favorite skills is Speed Sharpening. You only do like a swipe and a half when you usually do 4 swipes

without it.
Especially with weapons like DS and GL, being able to maintain constant max sharpness is really nice.
Personally, the moment I drop to green sharpness, I'm looking to use a whet.

With Speed Sharpening, you're back in action with your max sharpness before you know it.

Think, do you want monster information?
A weapon that would be effective against said monster?
How about a new armor set?
That is kind of how I am going about things while writing this.

Weapon Reference Charts


How To Read
Each weapon will have
| 100 | One Number
| 100 - 200 | or Two Numbers.
If there is only one number, that means even with Sharpness +1, the output will remain the same.
If there are two numbers, the number on the left is its original output while the number on the right is the output with Sharpness +1.
777 - 888 | Numbers in bold are each weapon's final output.

The chart goes as the following:
Attack - What is the attack output of the weapon.
Element - What is the elemental output of the weapon.

Note: As far as I can tell, decimals automatically get dropped in-game.
Note 2: Affinity is not included in any formula since it relies more on chance and percentage rather than something solid. Having 20 affinity gives you a 20% chance per hit to do 25% more damage and so on and so forth.

I will be filling out these tables as soon as I can but they are time consuming as fuck to be quite honest with you.

This section will have armors related to monster's element.

That page not useful either? All I have left to say is... do it yourself!

Notes

Let's see if I can actually finish this project... >_>;
Please don't touch this page, they are GeneStarwind's opinions for a reason.
Thank you.

It seems the most time consuming things on this page are the Weapon Comparisons and Charts.
They will be going into more detail but for now, I need to make the Charts to do the rest.
