             /                 Introduction                    /
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

Back in 2004, fulkth and I wrote the original damage formula for Monster 
Hunter on the Playstation 2.  There was a lot of debate at the time about 
which weapons were best and exactly how damage was calculated.  Six years
later, these arguments still rage on.  A new game is released for the Wii,
a new damage formula is presented, and still nobody can settle on which weapon
is the best.  This FAQ is not here to answer that question - it's only here to
present you with the materials you need to maximize your damage output.

This guide will detail for you how to calculate damage, how many hitpoints you
can expect your enemies to have, how much each grade of sharpness increases
your damage, which hitzones are most susceptible to damage, and what elements
work best on each monster.  Status ailments, their effectiveness, and how
monsters increase their tolerance to certain status ailments will also be
explained in detail.

If you just like to hit it 'til it dies, this guide may not be for you.  If
you're not concerned with killing monsters as fast as possible and just enjoy
the thrill of the hunt, this guide may not be for you.  However, if you want
to truly learn how to be the most efficient hunter in your party, learning
these numbers and how they work can be a very important step.

             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////
             /         Section I: The Damage Formula           /   (DFMLA)
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
1a: The Variables                                                  (DVAR)
=========================
So you already know how everything works and you want to jump right in?
Well, you can start figuring up damage right now if you wish.  If you don't
understand how the formula works after I explain it here, don't worry.  That
is what the FAQ is for, and I will explain each section in great detail.

To figure up damage to a wyvern, this is the information you need.  Listed
is a description of the variable and the variable name I will be using from
here on out in brackets. [ ]

     Attack Power:               [ATP]

This is simply the attack power as your status menu reads.  Don't forget to
include 'attack up' boosts, armor skills or inventory items.  Don't use
only the weapon attack power unless you have no status boosting equipment on!

     Type of Weapon Strike:      [TYPE]

The type of attack you choose to use with your weapon.  Whether it be the
overhead smash with a greatsword (.48) or a long charge superpound with your
hammer (2 Hits, .20 & .76).  Veterans of the series will find that many of
these percentages have not changed from the original Monster Hunter.

     Weapon Class Multiplier:    [CLASS]

An easy variable to remember.  After just a few calculations, you will have
them memorized.  This is simply a number you divide your total damage by at
the end of the equation which helps balance damages between the stronger and
weaker weapon classes.  Short Swords only get divided by 1.4, while the
overpowering hammer class must be divided by 5.2.  You'll find that these
numbers also have not changed from the earlier Monster Hunter titles, except
for the longsword class which was re-worked entirely.

     Sharpness Variable:         [SHARP]

What sharpness level your weapon is at when you attack.  In the beginning,
you'll be struggling to keep your weapon in yellow (normal damage, 1.0
modifier.)  Dozens of hours later, you may find your weapons able to reach
purple sharpness (1.50), adding an additional 50% raw damage.

     Hitzone Multiplier:         [HITZONE]

This is a percentage of how much weapon damage the enemy is absorbing.  The 
higher the number, the more damage is being done.  For the chart in section 
VII, the number listed is the percent out of 100 that is being absorbed.  For 
example, (90) would be put into the equation as (.90).  (150) would be put 
into the equation as (1.50)

     Special Class Variable:     [VAR]

First introduced in Monster Hunter Freedom, this variable was used to try to
balance out the weapon classes without having to change the formula itself.
For some reason, it's still being used today, even though a completely new
damage formula is in place and they could have simply changed the percentages.
Check to see if your weapon has any special scenarios in which you would add
a special class variable.  If you have no special class variable for a
particular calculation, your variable will be 1.0.  You can exclude it from
the formula if it is 1.0.


     Defense Multiplier:         [DEFENSE]

Simply the defense multiplier for the creature you are fighting.  Defense
multipliers are relatively consistent for the level of difficulty of your
current quest, but there are some exceptions.  Generally, offline enemies
have no multiplier (1.0), so you can leave this item out of the equation
entirely.  Online, low rank quests reduce your damage by 5% (more specifically,
your damage is multiplied by .95) and high rank quests reduce your damage by
20~25%.  This results in monsters not only taking longer to kill, but taking
more hits to stagger, trip, or break parts.

     Element:                    [ELEMENT]

The amount of elemental damage listed for your weapon.  This applies only to
Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice and Dragon.  Status elements don't deal damage and 
are applied separately from the damage formula.

     Weapon Sharpness(Element):  [ESHARP]

Again, the amount of sharpness your weapon currently has will cause your
elemental damage to vary.  The increase gained from a particular color
sharpness for raw damage is not necessarily the same as the boost to
elemental damage, so a separate variable is required.  Blue sharpness may be a
1.20 multiplier to raw damage, but your element is only multiplied by
1.0625.

     Element Hitzone Multiplier: [ELMZONE]

Every hitzone of the wyvern has its own strength and weakness for elements as
well.  The same with the raw damage hitzone multiplier, the higher the number,
the more damage that element is doing.  (100) would be entered as (1.0), while
(35) would be (.35).

     Elemental Damage Divider: [DIVIDER]

Hooray!  An easy one.  For elemental damage, no matter what weapon, attack or
damage being done, your elemental damage is to be divided by ten.  Starting in
Monster Hunter G, elements were displayed as ten times the amount as they were
listed in guides for Monster Hunter 1 on PS2.  For example, a weapon with 300
Water element in MH3 is really going to end up being calculated as 30.  This
divider is also applied to status ailments.  200 stun reduces stun tolerance by
20.



=========================
1b: Raw Damage Formula                                             (RFMLA)
=========================
Starting out simple, here's the raw damage formula.  Regardless of whether
or not your weapon has a listed element, you'll have to calculate your raw
damage first.

[ATP x TYPE x SHARP x HITZONE x VAR] / [CLASS] = Raw Damage

Any remaining decimal for your total damage would be dropped if you have no
elemental damage to calculate.  If you have a defense modifier, you can find
your total damage by multiplying [Total Damage x DEFENSE].

     Example Situation:  
Hunter with a theoretical 483 attack power lance decides to poke a high rank
Rathian in the face with a normal stab.  Hunter also has an attack boost that 
brings total attack power to 494.

[ATP]:      494           (Lance 483 + attack boost 11)
[TYPE]:     .23           (Normal lance stab, 23%)
[SHARP]:    1.05          (Green sharpness 105%, or 1.05)
[HITZONE]:  .90           (Rathian head multiplier is 90)
[DEFENSE]:  .75           (In this high rank online quest, defense is .75)
[VAR]:      1.0           (No special variable for lance)
[CLASS]:    2.3           (All lances, class multiplier 2.3)

[ATP x TYPE x SHARP x HITZONE] / [CLASS] = Raw Damage [X DEFENSE]
 494 x  .23 x 1.05  x   .90    /   2.3   =    46.683   X   .75   

First of all, you drop your decimal damage.  Your total damage would be 46 in
an offline quest, but in this online quest it's [46 x .75] = 34.5.  Drop
decimal damage again and your total damage is 34.

Congratulations, that's 34 damage.

=========================
1c: Element Damage Formula                                         (EFMLA)
=========================
If you have elemental damage to calculate, you'll want to add this number to
your raw damage number before you drop any decimals.  Then, you'll multiply
that total overall damage by a [DEFENSE] modifier if applicable.  Elemental
damage is far easier to figure up because there is no [TYPE] modifier.  Every
strike with an elemental weapon will add a set amount of elemental damage to
your total.  A hammer golfswing will add the same amount of fire damage as
a hammer check.

[ELEMENT x ESHARP x ELMZONE] / [DIVIDER] = Elemental Damage

     Example Situation:  
Earlier hunter has the same lance and attack power, but this time has 250
thunder element.

[ELEMENT]:  250           (250 thunder element)
[ESHARP]:   1.0           (Green sharpness for elements, x 1.0)
[ELMZONE]:  .20           (Rathian's weakness to thunder at head is 20)
[DIVIDER]:   10           (Elemental Divider is always 10)
[DEFENSE]:  .75           (.75 online high rank defense from earlier)

[ELEMENT x ESHARP x ELMZONE] / [DIVIDER] = Elemental Damage [X DEFENSE]
   250   x  1.0   x   .20    /     10    =      5 (Added Thunder Damage)

Drop your decimal damage (none in this case), you're looking at 5 elemental 
damage.  Multiplying by your online defense multiplier, you've got 
[5 x .75] = 3.75.  Drop your decimal again and you'll get 3 total damage per 
strike.

=========================
1d: Complete Damage Formula                                        (CFMLA)
=========================
Your complete damage formula, taking into consideration both elemental damage
and raw damage, looks something like this:

([ATP x TYPE x SHARP x HITZONE x VAR] / [CLASS])

+

([ELEMENT x ESHARP x ELMZONE] / [DIVIDER]) = Total Damage [X DEFENSE]

So, figuring up the situation above in its entirety would work like this:

[ATP]:      494           (Lance 483 + attack boost 11)
[TYPE]:     .23           (Normal lance stab, 23%)
[SHARP]:    1.05          (Green sharpness 105%, or 1.05)
[HITZONE]:  .90           (Rathian head multiplier is 90)
[VAR]:      1.0           (Check the special variables section for more info)
[DEFENSE]:  .75           (In this high rank online quest, defense is .75)
[CLASS]:    2.3           (All lances, class multiplier 2.3)
[ELEMENT]:  250           (250 thunder element)
[ESHARP]:   1.0           (Green sharpness for elements, x 1.0)
[ELMZONE]:  .20           (Rathian's weakness to thunder at head is 20)
[DIVIDER]:  10            (Divider is always 10)

[ATP x TYPE x SHARP x HITZONE] / [CLASS] = Raw Damage
 494 x  .23 x 1.05  x   .90    /   2.3   =    46.683
+
[ELEMENT x ESHARP x ELMZONE] / [DIVIDER]= Elemental Damage
   250   x  1.0   x   .20    /     10   =      5 

46.683 (Raw) + 5.0 (Thunder) = 51.683 [X DEFENSE] = 38.762.

Drop your decimal damage at the end of your calculation and you get 38.

=========================
2a: Brief Explanation
=========================
If you don't know already, a hundred attack power doesn't mean a hundred
damage per hit.  Your attack power is only one very simple factor in the
formula.  When calculating your damage, you will take your [ATP], or overall
listed attack power and multiply that by the [TYPE] of attack you use.  Next,
multiply by your [SHARP] multiplier depending on your current color sharpness.
Lastly, after looking at the chart later in the FAQ, you will divide your
total by your [CLASS] multiplier depending on what weapon class you chose.


=========================
2b: Attack Percentages                                             (PCNT)
=========================
Each weapon attack deals a different amount of damage.  A short, quick jab
with a hammer isn't going to deal as much damage as a golf swing.  When
calculating your damage, find the attack listed below and plug the value you
see as a decimal (Ex. 8% = .08) into the formula under [TYPE].

2c: Class Multipliers                                              (CLS)
=========================
Weapon class multipliers work as follows:  Each weapon has an overall value
that raw damage will be divided by.  All weapon attack powers are simply the
class multiplier number in multiples of ten. Also, when measuring attack
boosts, you will receive a boost directly related to your class multiplier.
Simply find the weapon class you have equipped and plug the number below into
the equation under [CLASS].  All hammers will have the same class multiplier,
regardless of attack power, just as all lances will have the same.

Weapon class multipliers are as follows:

Bowgun: 1.2

SnS: 1.4

Lance: 2.3

Longsword: 3.3

Greatsword: 4.8

Hammer: 5.2

Switch Axe: 5.4

=========================
2d: Special Variables                                              (SPVAR)
=========================
As listed above when detailing your [TYPE] damage, some weapons have special
variables for certain situations.

     I: Short Sword [VAR] = 1.06

All cutting attacks for short swords have a 1.06 [VAR].  In this case, plug
an additional 1.06 into your raw damage calculation for any attack that does
not lead with the shield.


     II: Greatsword [VAR] = 1.05

Now, here's how it works.

    |--------------------\
====|...1.....|2|....3... \
    |______________________\

Connecting with the center of the GS (Section 2) will give you an additional
1.05 [VAR] multiplier to plug into your raw damage formula.


     III: Lance [VAR] = .72

This one's quite confusing.  This is only used when the Impact hitzone x .72
results in a larger amount of damage than using the Cut hitzone.  If 
[Impact x .72] > [Cut], add a [VAR] of .72 into your raw damage formula 
for lance.

Also note that status ailments are reduced by half when using the lance charge.
A status hit (stun) that would normally deal 20 stun damage will only deal 10.
Elements are reduced by 75%.  8 elemental damage per hit would be reduced to
2 per hit when charging with the lance.

     IV: Hammer [VAR] = 1.0

There are no special class variables for hammer.


     V: Longsword [VAR] = 1.05, 1.13

Longsword has two special cases.  Just like the greatsword, you are awarded
a 1.05x bonus if you hit with the center of the blade.  Unlike the greatsword,
the longsword has a spirit guage which gradually fills as more attacks are
landed.  When filled, you will get a short attack boost and will be surrounded
by an aura.  During this time, use [VAR] = 1.13.  You can get both the 1.05 and
1.13 bonus at the same time.

     VI: Switch Axe [VAR] = 1.25

This only applies if your switch axe has an attack or elemental vial.  If
your weapon has an attack vial, use [VAR] = 1.25.  In the case of the elemental
vial, also use 1.25, however you will be entering it into the elemental
damage portion instead of the raw damage portion of the formula.

Example follows:

  Example I:

Theoretical Greatsword Attack Power:    900
Sideswing Attack:                       36%

     900      x     .36      /        4.8          =        67

  Example II:

[Attack Power x Attack Type] / [Class Multiplier]  =   Total Damage
     460      x     .28      /        2.3          =        56

             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
3a: Brief Explanation
=========================
Sharpness directly affects the amount of raw damage you inflict, and can be
added to the damage formula very easily.  Depending on the color of the blade
indicated in the upper left hand corner of your screen when you attack, use
the chart below to find your proper multiplier.  In later stages of the game
increasing your sharpness level is one of the easiest and most effective ways
to drastically increase your damage.

Sharpness also directly affects the amount of elemental damage you inflict.
Those variables are also given below.

Green sharpness for your weapon increases the total attack power by 5%.
Green sharpness for a weapon with an elemental attribute does 100% of the
stated elemental damage.  The full numbers are as follows:

Enter the value listed below that corresponds to your current sharpness level
as the [SHARP] variable when calculating your raw damage, and the
elemental multiplier will be your [ESHARP] variable if your weapon contains
an elemental attribute.

             /          Section IV: Elemental Damage           /  (ELMNT)
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
4a: Brief Explanation
=========================
Elemental damage is figured up separately from raw damage.  When using a
weapon with a damaging element, you are doing a set amount of damage
every time you strike, regardless of your raw attack power or what [TYPE]
of attack you are doing.

In general, quick-striking weapons are better for dealing elemental damage
because they hit more often.  Unlike raw damage, more hits actually does equal
more damage.

The equation for elemental damage is simple.  Use the hitzone chart to find
the body part target for your elemental weapon.  Convert the number to a 
decimal (Ex 30 = .30) and enter it as your [EZONE]  The same chart can be used
to find your [HITZONE] variable under cut or impact for your weapon type.

Elemental damage does not change based on weapon type.  A greatsword
with 300 fire element will do the same fire damage as a short sword with 300
fire element every time you connect with your monster. Great swords, however
will generally be dealing more raw damage with each strike due to their
higher attack powers and larger [TYPE] percentages.

Status ailments are slightly different.  They don't deal any added damage
initially, but every time your weapon succeeds in inflicting a status
hit, the wyvern's tolerance to that status is decreased by the amount
listed on your weapon (Divided by ten).  The animation itself, whether it be 
sleep cloud, poison cloud or paralyze "cloud" does zero added damage.

=========================
4b: Formula Example                                                (EXM4)
=========================
Don't forget always to divide by ten in your elemental formula.

  Example I: 500 Dragon Element SnS with Purple Sharpness

Element on Theoretical SnS:             500          [ELEMENT]
Purple Element Sharp Multiplier:        1.20         [ESHARP]

[ ELEMENT x ESHARP ] / [DIVIDER]   =   Elemental Damage
    500   x  1.20    /    10       =        60

  Example II: 300 Fire Element Lance with Orange Sharpness

Element on Theoretical Lance:           300          [ELEMENT]
Orange Elemental Sharpness Multiplier:  .50          [ESHARP]

[ ELEMENT x ESHARP ] / [DIVIDER]   =   Elemental Damage
    300   x  .50     /    10       =         15

             /        Section V:  Defense Multipliers          /   (DFNSE)
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
5a: Brief Explanation
=========================
Monster defense multipliers are what make the later monsters in the game so
damned tough. It's not enough to simply raise the number of hit points a 
monster has once you've finally reached your high ranked quests online.  To
make matters worse, every single attack you do now does less damage.

At first, one may think that it's just another way of extending the battle
and is essentially the same thing as raising the monster's HP, but it's
quite different.  Since each monster part has its own 'stagger limits', where
the monster will flinch, stagger or fall to the ground, you'll quickly find out
that it's much more difficult to get a noticeable reaction out of your foe.
The Rathalos that used to take three hits to the face before he cried out in 
pain suddenly requires five, meaning less free hits and more opportunity for
you to take a fireball or charge to the face.

When approaching monsters with high defense multipliers, and all monsters in
online high ranked quests will, you'll have to proceed with caution.  Habits
of rushing in recklessly may have to be replaced with more discreet tactics
to avoid taking a trip back to camp on the kitty cart.

Considering how powerful some weaponry can get online, allowing high rank
beasties to trip or flinch every couple hits just isn't feasible.  This is
the main reason for the defense modifier, and paired with the significant
increases in HP you may see some lengthy battles online if you aren't prepared.

=========================
5b: Defense Multipliers                                            (DFM)
=========================
Here are the basic rules for defense multipliers:

- Most monsters offline do not have defense multipliers.  There are exceptions,
and some of your later quests may have .95 or the occasional .90.

- Online low rank monsters are generally .95.  Again, there are exceptions
for certain quests.

- Online high rank monsters are generally .75, with smaller targets like Great
Jaggi or Great Baggi being .80.

- There are higher modifiers, especially in urgent quests or event quests.


=========================
5b: Formula Example                                                (EXM5)
=========================
  Example I: 900 ATP GS, Yellow Sharpness, Low rank wyvern

Theoretical Greatsword Attack Power:    900          [ATP]
Upswing Attack:                         .46          [TYPE]
Class Multiplier for GS:                4.8          [CLASS]
Yellow Sharp Multiplier:                1.0          [SHARP]
Center of blade multiplier:             1.05         [VAR]
Online Defense Multiplier:              .95          [DEFENSE]

[ ATP x TYPE x SHARP ] / [CLASS]  =   Total Damage  [ x DEFENSE ]
  900 x .46  x  1.0    /   4.8    =        86       [ x   .95   ] = 81

  Example II: 280 ATP SnS, Purple Sharpness, High rank wyvern

[ ATP x TYPE x SHARP x VAR ] / [CLASS]  =   Total Damage  [ x DEFENSE ]
  280 x .24  x  1.50 x 1.06  /   1.4    =        76       [ x   .75   ] = 57

=========================
6a: Brief Explanation
=========================
HP data varies not only by quest, but also by instance.  Two identical monsters
on an identical quest that are the identical size can have HP that varies by
as much as 20%.

To better explain how HP works, each monster is given a base HP.  From this
base HP, find the number of star difficulty ranking for the quest you have
accepted.  To find the HP range for the monster on this quest, multiply the
base HP times the variable range listed to the right.

Thanks to VioletKIRA for figuring out the HP formula.  This is actually a far
more simplistic version.  A 100% accurate HP listing will likely require a 
full quest listing.

Online, some monsters have reduced HP.
The final four "boss" monsters have constant HP.  No modifiers except events.
Some dual quests, event quests and urgent quests feature reduced HP.

             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////
             /Section VII: Hitzone & Elemental Resistance Chart/   (HTZON)
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
7a: Brief Explanation
=========================
This is the chart that everyone needs to see.  It not only lists the
weakpoints of every wyvern, but exactly HOW weak they are. These numbers
represent a percentage of total weapon damage taken by each body part.  A
higher number represents more damage being taken.

There are three types of raw weapon damage.  Cut-type deals with all
attacks from short swords, longswords, greatswords, lances and switch axes
except for the attacks that deal KO damage.  Those attacks that deal KO damage
are Impact-type, as well as all hammer attacks regardless of KO value.  Third
is shot or gunner-type damage which will not be listed in this melee FAQ.

Some monsters are considerably weaker to impact type than cutting type on
certain body parts.  Some weapons, like the lance, will deal cut-type damage
but will use the impact hitzones if [Impact x .72] would result in more damage
than using the regular cut-type hitzone itself.  If [Impact x .72] > [Cut],
add a [VAR] of .72 into your raw damage formula for lance.

The chart also details elemental damage.  In the same way as raw damage, the 
numbers are simply a percent of your weapon's element that is getting absorbed.

The final purpose of the chart is to list the stagger limits.  Every monster 
has a flinch animation for each body part where a stagger limit is listed.  
Most of the time the stagger limit is directly related to the amount of damage
required to destroy a breakable body part if applicable.  When a monster
trips and flails, the stagger limit was broken on a leg, although it often
takes two flinches to one leg to trip a monster for the very first time.

While locking is mostly a thing of the past, savvy hunters with prime knowledge
of the damage formula can still do things such as trip-locking.  By counting
the amount of damage done to a leg after a monster has fallen over, if you 
stop attacking just short of the stagger limit and wait for the monster to get
back up, a single hit will topple them over again.  It's not exactly fair, but
it's one benefit of the damage formula.

Key:

[Cut] 
The percentage of total weapon damage taken when using a blade.  This does not
apply to attacks that deal KO damage such as the GS slap or the shield
combo with the SnS.  

[Impact] 
The percentage of total weapon damage taken when using a hammer or other blunt
object such as a shield.  All hammer attacks are impact-type and all other
weapon attacks that deal KO damage are also impact-type.


[Fire /Watr /Thdr /Ice / Drgn] 
The Percentage of total elemental damage taken from one elemental strike.
(Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice or Dragon respectively)

[Stagger Limit]
The amount of damage required to "stagger" that body part.  Staggering a leg
will result in a trip, staggering the head or wings will generally result in

             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////
             /        Section VIII: Status Tolerance           /   (STATOL)
             ///////////////////////////////////////////////////

=========================
8a: Brief Explanation
=========================
Not only does each wyvern have its own resistance to status ailments, but
they recover from them at different speeds, take different amounts of damage
from poison, and stay under the influence of statuses for different lengths of
time.

Every time you see the poison, paralyze, or sleep animation when striking a
wyvern, you have successfully landed a status "hit".  When this happens, you
reduce a wyverns "immunity" to that status by the amount listed for the weapon
you are using.

For the sake of simplicity, we're going to call "KO" a status ailment as well.
KO can be achieved by hitting a wyvern in the face with a KO attack.
Greatswords, short swords and lances have been given KO attacks in Monster
Hunter Tri, but the hammer still reigns as KO king.  Another special property
of KO in this game is that the KO amount listed under the [TYPE] chart is
constant for that attack, but it is also affected by your [SHARP] variable.
Purple sharpness not only raises your damage, but allows you to KO 1.50x
as quickly as normally.  If a hammer attack dealing 48 KO damage at yellow
sharpness is done with purple sharpness instead, [48 x 1.50] = 72 KO damage
is dealt.  Simply take the KO value times the raw sharpness damage modifier.

KO or exhaust are only affected by sharpness and are not affected by any skills
that increase elemental or status damage.

A new status ailment added to Monster Hunter Tri is called exhaust.  Exhaust
only deals with monster stamina, and instantly reduces monster stamina by
200 when you successfully inflict the status.  Exhaust works much in the same
way as KO - it requires you to use KO attacks to lower exhaust tolerance, but
does not require you to hit the monster in the head.  Any "KO attack" on a
monster will lower their exhaust tolerance.

When you successfully land enough "status hits" to reduce a wyvern's tolerance
to zero, the wyvern is then inflicted with that status ailment.  After that
status has cleared, the wyvern's tolerance resets to a higher number, making
it more difficult to inflict the same status ailment in the same battle. 
Tolerance will not increase any more than what is listed on the chart.  If 
inflicted more times than is listed on the increase chart, the wyvern will 
continue to reset at the max value listed.

Wyverns regain tolerance at a certain rate.  Failing to hit a wyvern with a
status ailment constantly may result in a wyvern recovering some (if not all)
of the status tolerance you had previously lowered.

[Poison]
This has varying degrees of usefulness and is the only status ailment that
actually deals damage.  When tolerance reaches zero, the wyvern will lose
HP for a set amount each second for a certain amount of time.  Once the poison
bubbles animation has gone away, the wyvern's tolerance will reset and they
can begin to be poisoned again.

[Paralyze]
The favorite of most hunting groups, it allows for free hits on a wyvern for
a brief period of time.  Once again, when the status animation ends, the
tolerance resets and you can begin to build up toward paralyzing your target
again.  This status ailment was referred to as "stun" in previous Monster
Hunter titles.  There is a 1.05x multiplier for damage done while a monster is
paralyzed.

[sleep]
Generally used the least of the three major status ailments, sleep can be used
for fun or to take advantage of the multiplier given when waking a sleeping
monster.  Not recommended for most situations. The same tolerance
scenario applies. There is a 2.0x multiplier for attack that wakes a monster
up from sleep status.

[KO / Stun]
Must use a KO attack on the monster's head or face.  When tolerance is reached,
The wyvern will go into a trip animation with stars above their head for
an extended period of time.  This is often referred to as "stun" in-game, not 
to be confused with the status "paralyze".  This is not a normal status
ailment and is not affected by status attack up skills or modifiers.

[Exhaust]
Must use a KO attack on any part of the monster.  When tolerance is reached,
the wyvern loses a large chunk of stamina.  This is not a normal status
ailment and is not affected by status attack up skills or modifiers.

=========================
8b: Status Tolerance Charts                                       (STATC)
=========================
How to read the chart:

[Tolerance Increase]
First number is the amount of "status damage" it will take to inflict this
particular status ailment.  Each number following is what the tolerance
increases to after each successful infliction.  Do not forget that you for each
hit with a status attribute weapon, you are only dealing 10% of the listed
attribute.  500 poison element will deal [500 / 10] = 50 poison tolerance
each hit.

[Duration]
The length of time before the status ailment clears.

[Total Damage]
Poison only.  This is the total amount of HP or stamina the wyvern will lose 
by the time the status ailment clears.

[Recovery]
Rate that the wyvern recovers from the status damage you have inflicted.
Some wyverns recover more slowly than others.

8b: Other Tolerance Charts                                       (NSTATC)
=========================

How to read the chart:

[Tolerance Increase]
First number is the amount of "status damage" it will take to inflict this
particular status ailment.  Each number following is what the tolerance
increases to after each successful infliction. KO and exhaust damage are only
achieved by connecting with hits that have a KO value.  KO is only achieved
by hitting a monster in the head with a KO value attack.  Attacks with KO
value that hit the head will affect both KO and exhaust tolerance values
by the same amount.  Do not forget that KO and exhaust values are modified
by sharpness color. These values are not modified by "status attack up" skill.

[Duration]
The length of time before the successful "status" effect clears.

[Total Damage]
When the exhaust limit is reached, a monster's total stamina reduces by a
large portion.

[Recovery]
Rate that the wyvern recovers from the tolerance damage you have inflicted.
Some wyverns recover more slowly than others.

9a: Attack Up Multipliers                                          (ATKUP)
=========================

Attack multipliers are based on the class multiplier for your weapon.  If you
have a short sword equipped, your base multiplier will be 1.4.  For
Greatswords, 4.8.  So on, so forth.  Please refer to the class multiplier 
section to find your appropriate value.

There are five separate types of attacks that will stack.  You may choose one
attack up multiplier from each of the categories to stack separately.  If you
choose, for example, a demondrug and a mega demondrug, since they are from the
same class, you will only see the increase from the larger of the two values.
Using a Demondrug (x3) and a Mega Demondrug (x5) will only yeild a total of x5.

Example: Great Sword with 960 attack

Powercharm:         4.8 x 6  = +28.8
Powertalon:         4.8 x 9  = +43.2
Kitchen Attack (S): 4.8 x 3  = +14.4
Demon Flute:        4.8 x 10 = +48.0

ORIGINAL ATTACK POWER        =  960
TOTAL STACKABLE ATTACK       = +134.4

NEW ATTACK POWER             = 1094

Decimal damage is only dropped when calculating your damage.  The decimal
attack power remains hidden in case another attack up is added.
