    III. Urgent Quest Help
    This will surely kill some useless Topics.
    -How To's
    -4 Horns
    THE most hard HR up quest because of what is available to you
    TAKE A
    RathaLos set(dont have this? 4 Horns IS NOT FOR YOU)
    Ceramic blos horn(weapon tree FAQ FTW)
    take the following(organise for your own combining comfort)
    Combo book 1-4
    High potionX10
    Kelbi hornX10(or more)
    Fire HerbX20
    Bleu MushieX10
    Bomb Material X10
    Sonic BombX10
    basically use the RSPFHLS(pronounced Reshpfheless)
    when hes in mad mode
    when he burrows(throw after tail goes under)
    when you have the opening
    When hes charging
    When you need to
    When hes burrow-striking you
    With ancient potions(after expending your potion making materials)
    If your Good, half of those materials you wont need to use. WHO CARES?
    Kelbi Horns are the MH equivalent of Lucky Rabbits foots. take as many
    as you can.
    Another Strategy is to use Frost edge+. this isnt so smart, as RAW damage
    works best against Diablos
    Try to shoot for the first DBlos Down by 15 mins, and less than 10 potions
    sonics, and flashes used
    -A Giant Dragon Invades
    Beat Up Lao
    Set of choice(take good skills(and good defence)), Wolf Torrent
    Yes, YGG weapon. Just listen. its the only one worth getting
    Mega Potions X10
    LBB, LBB+ X As many as you have
    SBB+X5 if you have bombs
    Farcaster to get you out of some sticky situations
    Any other stuff you may want
    Now. When quest starts. you see Lao. I assume you are good enough to not
    get your butt kicked by Laos tail.
    Head to Camp. Take 9 Ballista shells, and dig for one more
    then, pick up your supplies. Keep your stamina up.
    Now. Wait for Lao. when he enters area, bomb up head. then whack at it.
    when you can. Triple combo the stomach. Constantly.
    Sharpness. Sharpen when you lose Green. then, sharpen twice. you get a tiny bit
    of white. which is good. Blue does the most damage.(or So myths say)
    Tripple Combo your way to the end of the areas, and when he gets to area 5,
    Blast him with the Dragonator, and all ten ballista shells
    then, continue to beat on his belly
    Why the triple combo? Its the strongest 
    you have SOLOED Lao+
    if your good, he should be lying in wait for you to carve
    If not, who cares. kick his butt with any HR3+ weapon you can now get!
    HR3. GET
    Welcome to G ranked quests. See section 4 of this Guide
    -A Thunderous Duo
    Take your regular Dual monster junk
    and extra traps, and throw out the sonics, and flashes.
    take your bombs, and other stuffs.
    Whip out your Corona. Set? maybe try a Gyps S or U. your call
    If possioble, get a Sanctioned Gunhammer and beat on them
    or Add a few extra nostrils to their heads with your Dragon Rider Spear
    and skip this. it should be over in approx 20 mins
    Find one. Beat on it. Regular Kehzu fighting tactics
    when the other comes, Paint/Auto Track it, and try to scare the other away with
    a paintball or something(hit it before it sees you with long range) if not,
    try to kill the first. if they start to sleep, or you are good with dual wyverns
    or have friends, go all out and rush them. try to fight one before it wakes up
    its buddy.
    Of course, the regular commonsensical things apply here also.
    -Pink And Azure(Sakura To Sou)(<=Much Cooler)
    Get a friend to help.
    No friends? Get Real
    No Friends with MHP/F? Now your realistic
    If you cannot beat this quest without a guide, you suck at MH and need to
    whatever. Use E.Schisms, a DBA, or a DRS or maybe Dark Punisher. your call.
    those are amongst the best weapons to fight them with.
    Regular tactics. Go.
    Regular Tactics?
    Trap them, Go bezerk on Head
    Sooner or later(15 mins), you have a dead Los/Ian
    Failed? Take Traps, and more stuffs
    Still Failed? You suck at MH. Go find a better game
    -The Legendary Black Dragon
    IV. G-Ranked

    G ranked.

    lady. they all require HR3 and above to join. you spawn in a "Random" area
