Question for Monster Hunter

Can someone please tell me how to cut the tail of a rathlos. I already use a great serpent blade, or should I use my poison battle axe.

I can easily kill the rathlos no problem but after 13 times I have killed it I have never once taken of the tail.

Also I was wondering how to upgrade the hero's sword.

The first thing if you want to take off the tail is that you'll probably need a more powerful weapon, and one with a good deal of green sharpness.

The best weapons for chopping off a tail are great swords, lances and dual swords, my favourite being a strong great sword. Hammers are useless, as they are blunt weapons.

For dual swords, just go into frenzy and do the special attack on the tail. With a lance, just keep hitting the tail with any sort of combo, but the upward stabs will probably connect more. For a great sword, the upward and downward slash combo will take it off very quickly.

Just know that the only part of the tail that can be cut off is the bulb covered in spikes at the end of the tail, so with a lance you need to aim for this, but with a great sword connecting anywhere on the tail should do it.

As to the Hero's Sword, the items that you need are few in number, but very rare indeed. You actually only need three different items, and only one of each. You need a Commendation (try the Herbivore eggs mission), a Hunters Citation and a Monoblos Heart.

This will allow you to upgrade it into the Master's Sword.
