1.Intro[INTR]


     Hello fellow gamers, bladetothefade here. I should
tell you this is my first guide so it might not be the best
but i take suggestions and comments. If you ever find a 
mistake dont be afraid to email me at 
tyronecereal@yahoo.com. Please do not email me about 
anything else that doesnt have any concern with the game.
In this guide I will show you how to increase your 
Hunter Rank(HR) on one of my favorite CAPCOM games,
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite! You can get alot of good
things from increasing your rank, but its not gonna
be easy...

----------------------------------------------------------
1.1.Game Info[GMIF]
----------------------------------------------------------

     As you all should know MHFU is a game where you
basically go into different scenery based areas and hunt
monsters. This game is great because of the challenge and
i always loved the blood shed. If you have the USA version
i suggest you get the Extreme Blood cheat. No i dont like
cheating but its just a blood cheat. Also on MHFU you can 
customize your character, not that much, but still. This
game has over 100 hrs of gameplay. Not much storyline but
great gameplay and playing online is a must for tougher
monsters, or for others to show you the ropes.

----------------------------------------------------------
1.2.About the Author[ABTA]
----------------------------------------------------------

Well theres not really much to say. I like playing fantasy
based games. Any games with guns,sword, or weapons, even 
blood and gore. I play alot of final fantasy and god of 
war, and of course Monster Hunter. I watch alot of anime 
like bleach or naruto. On my free time i like to roleplay over
at killermovies.com/forums/f62. Go and check it out if you
like to roleplay. If you ever do my username is Hunter_Abari.
Im a 15 year old 11th year old. So yea im partly a genius. 
But,no im not a geek, im just a smart jock...

---------------------------------------------------------
1.3.Update(Versions)
---------------------------------------------------------

Version 1.0 - 7/24/2010(Partially Finished)

Version 1.5 - 7/29/2010(Full)

=========================================================
2.Walkthrough[WKTU]
=========================================================

Withought further ado(spelling?!) let the games begin.

---------------------------------------------------------
2.1.About the Ranks[ABTR]
---------------------------------------------------------

There are essentially 9 Hunter Ranks. Every time you go up
a rank your name changes color. To do this you have to do 
certain guild quests. They are like the elder quest but a 
bit harder. Monster have more HP, and are stronger and 
crazier. But if your dedicated to being an awesome hunter
you should have no problem. Ex: The Tigrex urgent ELDER
quest will get on your nerves when you first start it, 
but eventually you beat it. You have to do the same quest
in the guild to increase one Hunter Rank and itll be 2x 
harder. Trust me....

--------------------------------------------------------
2.2.Special Privelages[SPPR]
--------------------------------------------------------

You will be able to unlock a couple of things when you
increase rank but not until you get higher in the ranks,
like HR 7. It goes from Low rank quest(HR1-HR3), 
High rank quest(HR4-HR6), and the notorious G-Level 
quests(HR7-HR9). When you get to G-Level quest you can
get weapons like Iron Katana G which is WAAAAAAAAAAY better 
than the regular Iron Katana. Iron Katana G is over 1000 
attack power, but you cant uprgade G - Level weapons.
The quests will also get you more money. Also G - Lvl
weapon can do multiple hits on an end attack of a combo,
netting you moe damage on a monster. But it only works for
the Hammer, SnS, and the DS when not in demonization mode.
YOu can also get better items and carves for stronger armor.
Once you officially defeat the final urgent for the guild 
AND the elder quests. You may call yourself a true monster
hunter! No one can call you a noob once again!! You feel 
powerful right? Well if you do get a godamn life...J/k
