Introduction to the lore
Monster Hunter isn't a story driven franchise, and that's not likely to change in the futures
But the world of Monster Hunter has a very interesting backstory !
Basically, there has been two "Ages"
- the First Age, ruled by the Ancient Civilisation
- the Second Age, the one we're in right now
Monster hunter world is set in the New World, where a research commission has been sent, composed of Hunters.
But we come from the Old World (where the previous games took place) :
And this Old World was ruled by the laws of nature, and most importantly, balanced. Humans and monsters where not the mortal ennemies of today, they where coexisting.
This is where the Ancient civilization comes in ! They were like us, composed of humans and wyverians (humans with pointy ears), and they were far more advanced than we will ever be ! They built marvels of technology and architecture, and they were thriving !
But they treated monsters like cattle, treating them as slaves, and killing them for materials. This angered the monsters, and particularly the Elder Dragons, who are sentient creatures. The AC had forgotten the balance of nature, and therefore had to be removed from existence.
And then, the AC committed was is called the Forbidden Act :
They created dragon machines with the corpses of the monsters they slaughtered, and used these abominations as soldiers to kill even more monsters. Those machines could only live by killing other forms of life, as they were created from lost lives.
This was the last straw, as the monsters saw those creations as abominations, and caused the Great War between the AC and the monsters !
At the end, the AC was wiped from existence, and numerous monsters and elder dragons races were now extinct.
This was also the time when the Fatalis, the most powerful elder dragon, earned its legend of the Evil Dragon by bringing mass destruction to the land, taking countless lives, and splitting a whole kingdom in half.
This dude hated the AC so much that he melded dead bodies to its hide to wear them as armor, just like we do with the monster we slay ! And he never forgot the fate of its kind even to this day !
Now comes the second age, and us with it !
We returned to an age of stone, with almost all the secrets of the AC lost to us, and we were reminded that the balance of nature was law !
There is no particular lore concerning our age, except that the Hunter Guild is what we answer to, and that they sent us to conduct researches on the New World in Monster Hunter World !

The biggest advice I can give is; DO NOT SQUAD UP WITH RANDOMS. I personally run him solo which is what I recommend, however if you’re unfortunate enough to resort to squading, here’s some tips.
•If someone puts a trap down, leave the quest, the morons obviously don’t know what they’re fighting.
•If someone has a bow, they most likely saw the speed run video, leave before you watch them miss shots and get pummeled.
•Lastly, try to go with people with shields. Not a lot of people can dodge his attacks.
But this is all from my experience from playing with people who’s first MH is world.
Honestly I was pretty confused on everything when I first started playing the beta. After a little while things started to gel and I figured out how to be (somewhat) successful in the game.
However this article filled with helpful videos describes all of the weapon classes really well and the advantages of using one weapon over the other. Check it out here:
WARNING: THEY MAKE YOU TURN OFF AD BLOCKER BUT ITS WORTH IT
Lack of weaponry?
Do any other MH vets feel like there’s a huge lack of weapon trees in this game? I feel like there’s such a small amount to actually make. Being HR53 I pretty much use the same 2 weapons anyway but from previous games I had the feeling there was a plethora of weapons and not so much hereHunter's Hut
Don't lose faith in new hunters!
I was doing nerg last night and a random joined our Xbox group, the guys I was with kept going off on the kid, which was pissing me off because he was trying his best, he was running hunting horn and did a great job with buffs, sadily he'd never fought nerg till now, so after the 2 rage quit, I invited him to a party and seen what all he had, he was hella under geared, and his weapon was almost low rank, so we went out did some investigations, got him his materials, made him some new armor and new horn, the best part the guy didn't care about elements or anything he wanted to make sure it had a certain set of buffs so he could do his best to keep us a live, needless to say nerg was easy as hell to beat when he got the proper gear. Moral of the story, don't shame someone for not being experienced take the time to help players learn and grow, we all were at their level. Be kind, be helpful, be respectful.Hunter's Hut

Update 1.06 Out Now, View Patch Notes
Monster Hunter: World update 1.06 is now available to download. The latest patch for Capcom’s popular action role-playing game fixes some issues, including one that occurred “when hunters had 31 or more Slashberries at the time of the last update.”
Check out the Monster Hunter: World update 1.06 patch notes below:
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One:
- Fixed an issue that occurred when hunters had 31 or more Slashberries in their item pouch at the time of the last update (PS4 v1.05 / Xbox One v184.108.40.206) where the maximum number of Slashberries a hunter can hold in their item pouch was reduced from 60 to 30. This update will move any Slashberries exceeding 30 in your item pouch to your item box.
- Made additional fixes to an issue fixed in the last update (PS4 v1.05 / Xbox One v220.127.116.11) where, rarely, uninvited non-squad members could join a Squad Online Session, or Squad members could not join one of their own.
- Readjusted the search algorithm when searching for another player’s session to join.
For even more on Capcom’s action role-playing game, check out my Monster Hunter: World review. Here’s what I had to say about the new release:
This is the modernization that Monster Hunter definitely needed. Not only is it the most dynamic title in the series to date, it’s just a fantastic action role-playing game. Even if you’ve bounced off the series in the past, I highly recommend giving Monster Hunter: World a try. It’s where the series finally truly clicked for me, and that is very much by design. Capcom has updated their formula for a new generation, and it’s a real treat for all.
Monster Hunter: World update 1.06 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
