Monster Hunter Survival Tips and Etiquette for Newbies

Allllright! Generations is finally here!!! I made one of these for MH4U so I decided to update it for MHGen. A few minor, but necessary changes here and there.

1) Welcome to Mushroom Hunter Generations: 

Unlike the demo, the full game does not spoil you with all these great, useful items in your pouch for a quest. At the start of the game you’re expected to gather A LOT of materials and buy what you need. Yeah, it does break the mood and action, but you can’t survive if you’re not prepared!

Here are the most essential:

  • Herb + Blue Mushroom = Potion
  • Potion + Honey = Mega Potion

A little more advanced, but useful nonetheless:

  • Godbug + Blue Mushroom = Nutrients
        Nutrients + Honey = Mega Nutrients
        Mega Nutrients + Dragon Toadstool = Max Potion
  • Honey + Bitterbug = Catalyst
        Catalyst + Dragon Toadstool = Immunizer
        Immunizer + Kelbi Horn = Ancient Potion

You can carry 10 potions, 10 mega potions, 2 max potions and 1 ancient potion at a time, don’t just stick to one or the other. The more, the merrier!

Whetstones, antidotes, cold/hot drinks, and ammo/coatings will be available for sale. These are the crucial items for most of your hunts.

2) Everyone loves Lifepowders (well, the vast majority do):

The Guildmarm:  HOT & COLD

(cinnamon or peppermint tea, orange bitters, sugar)

Off to a day and night in the Dunes, Doodle? Then you’ll need both Hot and Cold drinks! Crack open that Combine menu and commence with the crafting! I’ve got the recipes right here in my notebook, next to the Peco Sketchpage.

For the Cold Drink, make half a cup of strong peppermint tea. Add crushed bitterbug — what’s that, Doodle? You’re all out? I guess you can use 3 drops of orange bitters instead. Stir in a teaspoon of sugar and pour it over some ice crystals … or ice, if you’re out of those too.

For the Hot Drink, make a full cup of cinnamon tea. Add the bitterbug, (or the bitters if you have to) and the sugar. Drink that one hot outta the potion bottle!

Didja get all that, Doodle? … you don’t say.
