I've asked this question on the Monster Hunter Freedom 2 forums, but apparently the forums are currently inactive.
I'm ready to take on the White Fatalis, but I need a very important question answered. I heard that since The Ancestral Dragon is a Special Quest the damage to the White Fatalis carries on to the next time you face it. (Ex: White Fatalis starts out with X amount of damage, I do Y amount of damage and fail the quest, the next time I go on the quest the White Fatalis starts out with X minus Y damage.) Is this true? I can deal a decent amount of damage when I do the quest, but I don't want to be wasting my time, money, and effort if the damage doesn't carry on.
