Use water when he has mud on him, and fire when he's not covered in mud. I main the lance however so status effects and elemental weapons are my thing, and use the Peco armor for the Evade skills it has.

I WANT to get into Monster Hunter but I really just cannot find a groove to it.
I've picked it up 5 times now, but only ever played for a few days maximum.
I suppose some things aren't meant to be.
The tutorial is slow as hell, how far did you progress in it yet?
Not Ultimate. I tried Freedom Unite and Tri, but never really got into it. I suppose one day I'll try again.
Never played Unite since I don't have a PSP or a Vita, but Tri, it was TERRIBLE for newcomers to the series. I was really discouraged back when I first started to play it, but after I stuck with it, I got from getting my ass kicked by an Dinosaur that shouts hey when he hipchecks you, to slaying giant sand whales.
