G Rank hunter in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, that is, and it only took me 120 hours. What did you think I meant?
What is G Rank? Frankly, I have no idea. The game goes from low rank quests and then on to high rank quests. After that you are inducted into the infamous G Rank, which is where the game really begins supposedly. What does the G stand for you ask? Who knows? It might as well be T, H, B, or S Rank. It must mean something, but I don’t know what. Basically, every monster seems to be on speed and hits like a mack truck.
Most of my time has been spent farming different monsters for rare crafting components. You might start to slowly lose your sanity when you fight the same thing over and over again for only a 2% drop chance, but it’s a pretty great feeling when you finally assemble your armor or upgrade your weapon. Unless you end up looking something like this: See attached image. Then you might feel like crying yourself to sleep.
That giant thing you see on my back is a Hunting Horn. Think of it as a basically a musical instrument you bash heads with and also use to buff your self/group. Originally I was using a Gunlance, which is pretty much what it sounds like, but after dozens of hours you just need to switch things up. If I can ever get Keen to play with me I might switch over to something else like a Bowgun, which is an entirely different style of play.Â That’s what I really like about these games. You can invest a lot of time and have an equal amount of fun and then switch to a different weapon and find an entirely different experience. Possibly enjoyable or not.
I still have a long way to go if I ever hope to see all of this game’s content. And again, my Nintendo Network ID is Graevyard, so feel free to hit me up for some hunts!
