Wuts up, My names Marc. I've been getting into writing faq only just recently
even though i've playing games for since the NES. My Favorite game I've played 
is MotoGP. Since I drive a crotch-rocket of my own I find it just as fun to 
play the game. Oh yeah, Monsta Hunta Fo Life! >=[E  3]

The Ruby is the rarest item in Monster Hunter Freedom (period). If you had the
pleasure of playing Monster Hunter on the Playstation 2 you've probably heared
of a little item called a plate. Also any Hunter new that the favorite phrase 
of any newb was "I Need Plates!" Now there's a new sheriff of newb pain in town
, and his name is the Ruby. Soon there will be spam posts of Newbs complaining
about "I can't get Rubies...(cry)". That is why I decided to make this Faq.

The Rathian Ruby in Monster Hunter Freedom is the equivalent of a Rathian Plate
in Monster Hunter(PS2). Its Difficult to aquire but not the hardest to aquire.
It's found only in regular(green) Rathians tails. This Ruby was the easiest for
me to aquire due to the ease of cutting Rathian tails.

The Pink Rathian Ruby is one of the new items added to the Monster Hunter item
list. It is a new type of item found in a new type of wyvern. It's found in a 
a Pink Rathian and is the easiest of the alternate Rathian variations to aquire.

The Gold Rathian Ruby is the rarist Rathian Ruby, by far. The Gold Rathian's 
tail is thicker than the pink rathian, and takes more attacks to cut off. The 
Gold Ian Ruby is the most useful in the creation of rare wepons.

In Monster Hunter(PS2) the Rathalos was the bane of all anguish. The Rathalos
plate was almost impossible to get let alone 25 of them. Now the new bane of
items is the Rathalos Ruby. With a very low sucsess rate of collecting one this
item will bring back memories of the pl8 runs.

The Ruby of an Azure, or blueish, Rathalos. Not any easier to get one from 
this tail than a regular Rathalos. The tail is harder to penetrate and cut, and
will have to struggling with it. Good Luck with this one, you'll need it.

There's not much I can say about this that will make it any easier to acquire.
The Silver Rathalos is fast, adgile and won't let you hit its tail without a 
fight. All I can really say is good luck.

As rare as a Rathalos Ruby but with 1-7 more attempts per monster. The Lao Ruby
is probably the easiest to get. With more than I carve attempt this one won't 
be as hard. The Azure Lao is the only lao that I got a Lao Ruby from.
