Yeah, new gunlance attacks look interesting. I never got around to using gunlances in P2G besides toying with them in tutorial quests, but I really liked the design and premise of them.

I still say turtling is nowhere as effective as stepping through monster attacks, especially since not all attacks are going to allow you to counter, rathian charge is a good example.

Exactly. The trick is knowing what tool to use, when. For example, I'll usually counter against a barroth charge since sometimes it gets me a hit in, but dodging isn't always an option. Similarly, I pretty much never block or counter a tailwhip, I'll just hop through it, as it takes less time to get damage back on target.

Thank you for understanding how to properly use a lance. I'm not saying lance counter isn't useful, but you can't just spam it.

I don't think we will see MHP3
unless you have a modded PSP and wait for someone to translate the game which will never happen, it will stay at 30% translated.
