I've been playing Monster Hunter 4U and have unfortunately been struggling to enjoy it. Certain control issues like being unable to roll backwards and the like, I've been able to get used to and have even gotten used to the much slower gathering.
My issue has been actually facing monsters. I've been finding it really difficult to find opportunities to attack monsters without being punished fairly consistently and the accursed tail swipe by wyvern monsters gets me a lot too. I have been using Sword and Shield which is what I did in World in order to get used to the game more. I usually do pretty ok until a monsters gets enraged. It just feels like there is barely any opportunity to punish them. I spent a lot of time farming Gore Magala for her armor and also to git gud. I eventually got pretty good at the fight (was using the Switch Axe against it).
It seems like a good place to attack Gore Magala is the head as it takes lots of damage there and gets rid of the enraged phase quicker, the problem was that if I attack its head and it decides to charge (enraged or not) there seemed to be little I could do. In World I just feel a lot more mobile.
So what tips do you guys have in general that could help make combat less frustrating for me? Just general tips that you think I should keep in mind. I would also like to ask for some advice as to which weapon upgrade paths are good to pursue? Mainly for the S&S as they're what I'm going to be using for a while.
