I'm going to be new to MH when this comes out in March. So I want to know what weapon classes are the best so I don't get ROFLstomped on my first try. Feel free to debate if you want, its all to my, and other newcomers benefit.

There may be no weapon better than another, but there are are weapons that are easier to use. From personal experience, bowguns are the most difficult to learn and lances are the easiest to learn and possibly use in Tri. I carted every so often with various weapons, but when I used the lance, I never carted again. Now, the bow seems like it would be easy to use in Ultimate and I'm eagerly waiting to try it out.

One word of warning - you may notice at first that the controls feel quite different from other games; there are very specific gameplay reasons behind every single movement, distance covered, and timing of these animations.
Do not be turned off by this - it takes no time to get over them. But yeah, the best thing would be to try out each class in a training quest to learn and implement each one's mechanics and movesets. But yeah, SnS and hammers are fairly easy to get into, at least in my experience.
