Thank you for the response, sounds interesting. definitely going to look into it. I really like the not bouncing part :)

I'm fighting the highly bouncable Barroth, but probably going to go for dual blades to get at the soft belly of the beast. The switch axe might be another good option if it's as you say.

the great sword is horrible against him. lol

I get to move around slightly better than some heavier weapons, it's a good balance of attack and time committed to an attack, so getting in and out from under the monster untouched is possible
Horizonal axe swings are pretty strong raw starting off and later have elemental damage in both forms. Also, the horizontal swings keep going so long as there is stamina, so it piles on damage.
When the Axe turns into a longsword sharpness becomes less of a concern because it is will cut through hard skin rather than bounce.
Also, it is possible to latch on and eject elemental damage so that skips a mounting sequence. It does take a noticeable amount of sharpness, but if you time it right you can latch onto the tail, even while it is trying to run. It also isn't necessary to attach but it does look good.
It's much simpler than the charge axe in terms of attack, it still is pretty slow though not as slow as the greatsword, but the reach is still good (not that it's easy to miss) and in longsword mode there's a less of a chance of missing flying monsters than with other swords, but maybe that part is just preference. You do charge the bladed version with axe attacks normally, but that tends to be a non issue since both forms have good reasons to use.

my I ask why the switch axe?
nothing against it, I'm actually completely unfamiliar with it. but as far as the big swords, I'm a big fan of the simplicity of the great sword. what drew you to the switch axe?

Hunting horn is a viable solo, switch axe main. It has not disappointed so far

I used to only play solo, looking forward to some coop action. that's why I guess the hunting horn always seemed dumb to me.

I'm afraid the game might be too easy for a veteran, but I guess only time will tell. the fan base is quite devote so there must still be plenty of challenge.

yeah. it's good for that. it also really helps on solo plays. the insect glaive seems interesting. I tried it but it wasn't my kind of weapon. it would seem like u would jump around a lot and use your kinsects and only hit from above which can be a challenge.

Never was big on the ranged weapons, but oh yeah, I forgot the lance! that's definitely a fun weapon when you figure out it's pattern. stay on the monsters face like glue!

Monster Hunter is good at making you feel awesome. right now my two favorites are the Lance and heavy bowgun.

I'm getting monster Hunter world in a few days and I've been getting myself hyped up. especially with all the reviews gushing how it's the greatest game ever. this whole map at once is what I'm looking forward to the most. before all you had to do to escape the monster was run to the end of the zone. now you will have to actually outrun the beast.

the run by pick ups sounds great too.

haven't played dark souls, but from what I hear it's mostly super hard cause of unfair level design. if that's the case kid klown is by far the most hardcore game:

it's a funny review if you have time.

I youtubed a boss fight, Ornstein and somebody. 6 minute battle, they had a 2/3 attack move list at first, maybe 5/6 when dying. that's maybe half of an early monster.

in monster Hunter your weapons are more bad ass, more complex, and the environment can be totally in your favor, but that 20 minute 1 on 1 with a goliath is still epic as heck.

didn't know bloodborne was on that level, it's the free game for ps4 next month, maybe I'll check it out.

as to my weapons, great sword, longsword, and the hammer are my favorite. But I only played 2 portable and tri so only had a few weapons. the insect glaive looks interesting. which is your favorite monster?

I would say it's an awesome game but it's not that difficult. dark souls or bloodborne would be higher on my list for difficulty. on a side note what weapon do u use?
