(25 May 2013 - 08:57 AM)Bombs are a bit situational. Just dropping them in regular combat usually isn't that great. The time spent setting them could get you hit, or the blast could hit you, and you're probably better off spending the time attacking. Some monsters have good openings for bombs, or interact with them in interesting ways (like Nibelsnarf). Or you can create openings with traps or status effects.
(25 May 2013 - 08:53 AM)The whole game can be solo'd with any weapon type. Some monsters can be a bit of a pain with certain weapon types, though. I wouldn't want to do Ceadeus with SnS, or Alatreon with SnS, but some people would be fine with that. In Unite, sleep Duals were terrible, but I hear they fixed it so they actually work decently.
(25 May 2013 - 08:52 AM)The first bomb to hit a sleeping monster gets a 3x damage multiplier, so sleep bombing is pretty good. Bombs do set damage that's only affected by monster defense, not hitzone, so it's good to a point, but probably won't do enough damage in G rank. Not alone, at least.
(25 May 2013 - 08:49 AM)Yeah well closer to ontario but L.a Is considered close since I go there often. Hmm I have been reading about sleep bombing is it still just as effective in monster hunter 3 ultimate ? or is laying down an electric trap and trying to bomb better?
