@Nathan - You still need to hunt with me. I've been playing nothing but monster hunter since I got the game.
I did all Caravan stuff up to the start of 9 star. Even completed "The Caravaneer's Challenge" just a moment ago. That challenge is too op. Zinogre and Rajang teaming up in automatic charged mode. And then having to kill the Shagaru Magala on top of it all. But color changing armor pigment unlocked now.
Also at HR7 with guild stuff. Need to go back to complete some of the guild's non-key quests though.
I bought New Leaf and kinda forgot about MH4 but yes we need to hunt! My roommates have been giving me shit for not playing lately.
