hear me out!
They don't work like the old games anymore (if the monster was aware of you in the area, they would be unaffected when the smoke bomb activates), which makes them incredibly useful.
But this is more for solo play. You or the monster must be basically face into or across the smoke (if within each other's point of view) to activate.
As someone who loves using Wyvern fires, wyvernsnipes, and crit draw tail cutting strats, and dragon piercers, these are AWESOME.
Now some monsters are pretty good about finding you, but others are really good at standing still (such as bagel boy for that meaty DP).
Think of it as like 10 ghillie mantels, as like ten, "OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHI- I'm fine"s, where yoi can sharpen, drink a potion, and run in again.
It's useful for attack openings as well considering that many monsters will go into a stationary idle search when you become hidden.
Sprint towards the back of the monster mid animation and drop a smoke, and you'll get ample time for that 500 damage crit draw slash without the sucker moving more than an inch. Well, at least for the first 5-6 seconds of their idle searching animation.
Need Vaals fang?
I like to get a nice wyvern fire off in his face after I drop the smoke. he'll turn his head back and forth before setting it in the middle… of my explosion! of course you could wait for an opening or knock him down but this is more for the, "he's limping and it's still not broken? and I'm too lazy to wait for him to sleep I'm going to get a high amount of damage on a specific area without building a status.
It's extremely useful.
Want a monster to sit still under a boulder or in front of the waterfall?
Want a monster to sit still so you can pre tranq him if you want to cap quickly?
WANT TO RECITE THAT DAMN ATTACK NOTE COMBO AND GET THAT BUFF?
want to be an absolute stealth player for the first time in this game???
That's actually still pretty hard to do and kind of annoying since there isn't any kind of stealth damage boost, but who cares? I use it for my crit draw dragon Pierce when Bazel goes into rage.
Seriously, if you want to just try something really unique, especially now that you will have a surplus of ivy, try smoke bomb strats!
