So I Just Hit HR3 Online, What Now?

I am still on 5* quests offline. Should I do that and farm some of the easier hard rank gear, or should I stick with online stuff and keep progressing that way? I use a hammer right now, but unfortunately my Lagi armor set seems to be like tissue paper against the hard rank monsters. Should I backtrack, go online, and try and get a Jaggi+ set or should I stick with it and try and get some P. Ludroth groups going?

Progress in the village, since the farm is almost a necessity, and the fisherboats can bring you an exclusive item needed for a good armour piece. Besides, try making Volvidon S, it has good defense as well as AuM and Evasion +1, which might help you out a lot early mid-game. It is one of these standard armours in HR for literally any weapon class.

So, und wer das versteht darf sich gerne auf selbiges mit mir treffen. Vor allem auf Letzteres.

Thanks for the feedback. What should I be looking out with the fishing boats?

shards and fragments from the treasure fleet

Fleet can be maxed with 4* Rare Commodities, already available to TC since he is at end of Village Low Rank. Daytime Moga hunt Lagi drops 4*.

Fastest progression at this point would be Port quests. TC is looking for Advanced Armor Spheres. I would try to get to HR 4 for access to High Rank Volcano Harvest Tour and Hard Armor Spheres. Either that or pick a High Rank set to go for and complete it.

Definitely definitely do offline first.

People who do their first playthrough online are just always terrible. Probably because they usually let 1-3 HR50+'s carry them through the game, never developing even the basic skills needed for some of G Rank.

... plus there's a good chance you'll find the strategy of playing a 1-2 players match to be much more entertaining than cheesing the game with 4.

I would definitely do village first as mentioned above. However your only one hunter rank away from Brachydios mio.

You can in fact join Brachydios quests at HR3, it may be a bit tough but you could very easily then create a Dios Tailhammer which would make offline a lot easier for you.

Sounds like a crutch to me.

Please stop using crutches people! Don't be afraid to die, or take 30 minutes for a mission, or (god forbid) do some research on effective playstyles and enemy weaknesses. You might find that this game has a whole new level of depth you weren't aware of.

Challenge and study are the quintessential aspects of improvement.

Whilst village solo play is there to help hone your playing skills, i was simply pointing out that as a new player a slime weapon is going to be of benefit to him this early on in the game.

At village 5* his weapon choice is going to be slim, His pool of elemental, raw and status weapons are going to be limited.
