Monster Hunter Tri Guide

Unofficial Monster Hunter Tri Guide by Michael Monette for

A terrifying sea monster threatens the very existence of Moga Village, a small, idyllic fishing town. As the only one in the village capable of accomplishing such a feat, you're tasked with ridding the waters of this terror.

This guide will take you from a wet-behind-the-ears hunter to an Elder Dragon-slaying legend. You'll find a complete walkthrough covering the offline mode, packed with tips for taking down even the most ferocious of monsters you'll encounter in the field. Also included is a guide to fulfilling every villager request, unlocking all of Cha-Cha's masks and a complete list of item combinations. If you're new to the series, you'll surely find the primer section a big help.

Note: Any controls mentioned in this guide refer to the Classic Style 1 and Classic Style 2 controller patterns using the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro. Monster Hunter Tri is playable with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk combo, but if you plan on following this guide (and reaching a higher level of play) it is crucial you use either a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro.

I know this sounds stupid but whenever I fight a new monster I take a lance because it has a shield, so I know what I am facing. But I am scared to fight anything that has higher attack then Rathian lollies.

To kill great jaggi easy just follow these steps

1. Use a blade and shield something with high attack power
2. Attack its side body at all times because great jaggis always turn and keep turning just to face you and it wont stop turning until it does.
3. Take a fire torch with you so other jaggis won't even come near you because there afraid of fire
4. Most imporatant part is always watch for the great jaggies movements , If it starts to puff out smoke then it will tail whip 2 times and it always will. Also the ramming head but he does twice this is extremely easy to counter as i call it a counter kill as long as you wacth its movements

Killing royal ludroth easy.

1. To gather a large ammount of royal ludroth materials such as high quality Sponges , Royal ludroth crest , and every other part just do the - A ROYAL PAIN - quest repeatily and you will get a large ammount of royal ludroth resources plus 4000 z just for completeting the quest so if you want the royal ludroth amour set then just follow this really easy
i made over 30000 z and every royal ludroth item in under 20 minutes

2. For me the best weapon to use against Royal ludroth would be a Switch Axe because switch-axe can cut the tail and break its crest and mame very easy also ending the fight early

Hi I found you're guide very useful. Thank you. If anyone is having trouble killing R. Ludroth then simply get a buster sword (iron great sword path) and attack at his tail to sever it, then at his mane to break it and finally at his crest to shatter it. By then a few hits should make him limp and a dozen or so more should kill him. I didn't even KO when I did this- it also works for...qurupeco and great jaggi.

In the online quests for flying wyverins (Only for desserted island though sorry.) go to area 8 and if the moster (Rathian, Ratholos, and quercuop to name a few.) go to the pit with the eggs in it and break a few. the monster will come running! Monsters have a habit of doing that when their eggs are being broken.

If you have the Wii remote turned to the right when you have S/S on, it will execute a shield attack and automatically K.O. the Kelbi.

Female Kelbi (Bluish with drooping ears): Like 50% chance of horn

Male Kelbi (Greenish with big horns):Like 70-75% chance

the mission when youve got to get the kelbi horns this includes the offline and online quest wait until the kelbi has stars above its head and then carve the kelbi and thats how you get kelbi horns!

The "largaricurs"-thing,yeah i just did the "guts:it's whats for dinner" quest, and i only have a hunters knife, but i tried to fight the lagriacurs-thing, i know i'm insain

So when looking for mushrooms I found a giant egg. I've tried taking it back to base camp and placing it into the depositing box but it wont let me. Is there a reason or a special button I'm suppose to press on the Wii

Added 6th Aug 2010, ID #7747

I have seen the guide for "Guts: its whats for dinner". When you say to run into the next level (11 or 10) when the big sea monster comes (i forgot the name) i found it much harder and even more dangerous. For me i just went out of the water right when it came. It was slower but i didnt put my self in harms way. I also just sat in area 10 because it was easier. I am not doughting you or your guide i am just sugesting a different way.
