Any tips from more experienced Monster Hunters? This is my first try at the series, but I’m having a really tough time getting into it. The game looks great, but the combat seems so unsatisfying. Attacks are so slow and depending on what button you press you may leap clear over your quarry or swing where it had been 5 seconds ago. I’ve tried looking at some forums and the replies to others has been, “Get gud.” Is there something I’m missing that makes this game feel clunky and really slow when using the weapons? I’ve tried the Insect Glaive and Buster Sword so far.
