Hey folks! I've been playing and enjoying Monster Hunter World, about 10-15 hours in right now. I feel like I have a handle on most aspects of the game at this point (I also played a chunk of 4U), but a few things still confuse me. Hoping some folks here may be able to answer!
- I was trying bows, and am confused on the Iron Bow vs Hunter's Bow (ie, Ore tree vs Bone tree weapons). For melee weapons, these trees offer a small trade-off between sharpness and raw damage. However, the bow does not have sharpness... so does the Iron Bow have any advantage over the Hunter's Bow?
- For the most part, it seems I can undo weapon upgrades and get the parts back. However, sometimes I can't, such as when I upgraded to my Charge Blade to the Jagras Strongarm. I first thought this was was maybe because I went to a different "tier" of weapon, but I did a similar leap with my bow and can still go back. Not sure why I sometimes can and sometimes can't.
- When playing together with a friend, if we both are on the same story mission, and neither of us have done it, it looks like we cannot play it together. I know you have to wait after the cutscene before sending a SOS flare, but I did that and my friend could not see the flare. My guess is they have to see the cutscene on their own first, is that right?
