    Also assuming you've played and have experience with the monster hunter series before. So i like to assume a lot of things. so without further adieu.

    General<!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--></u></b>
    Just a few general things about the village. You should read it <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    The People In the Village</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--></u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->


    <u>Guy with no shirt and is alway smoking. has a coat but isn't wearing it properly - <b>Village Elder </b></u>
    The Village Elder just sits there really, telling you of important happenings within the village. Isn't as central as the village elder of pokke.

    <u>Chick in a Maid like costume, red hat & armband - <b>Quest Giver</b></u>
    She'll be usually standing behind the counter next to the pier where you go to initiate quests. As the name suggests, she's the hands out quests to you.

    <u>Midget - <b>Weaponsmith</b></u>
    He'll be standing towards the far right of the village, next to his furnace. he'll be holding a big hammer. You go to this guy for building/improving your weapons ands armour. you'll also go to him for gems.

    <u>Lady in the counter next to the Weaponsmith -<b> Arms Seller</b></u>
    She'll be standing behind a counter next to the weapon smith. Instead of building your armour/weapons you go to her to simply buy them. keep in mind that the stuff she sells is usually pretty poor compared to what you can make at the time.

    <u>Slenderish lady -<b> Item Seller</b></u>
    She'll be standing behind a counter down from the quest giver. don't mistake her for the old brown fat lady though <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> she just sells general goods like potions, cold/hot drinks, picks, bugnets e.t.c

    <u>Guy standing ontop of a Hugeass box - <b>Tally Guy</b></u>
    Remember that guy in mhfreedom -> freedom unite who you went to, to improve your farm and exchange pokke points with? will this is mh3's version of the guy. except with quite a few changes.
    <!--coloro:#FF0000--><span style="color:#FF0000"><!--/coloro--><!--sizeo:4--><span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->
    <u><b>Whats Where in the village</b></u><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    <u>Your Room</u>
    Next to the stairway, its got red blinds/overhangs with yellow stripes. go here to save, put items in your box and change equipment. you can also go there to order food from the felynes.

    <u>The Quest Pier</u>
    To the far left of the village, next to the quest giver. entrance to it is a big archway.

    <u>The Mountains</u>
    Before i revised this, i called this the farm - but i found out that there is an actual farm in this game <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> so i'll call it the Mountains from now on. Its to the very right of the village, it'll bring you to the Mountains, its basically the very first environment you do quests in this game.

    <u>The Farm</u>
    Similar to the pokke farm but more alike to the farm in MHFO, its down from the tally guy. entrance is also an archway. albeit a dinky one.

    <!--coloro:#FF0000--><span style="color:#FF0000"><!--/coloro--><b>
    <u><!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->The Tutorial<!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--></u></b><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    First Off, explore the town a bit. talk to anyone with a yellow text box above their head.

    After you've done that head to the Mountains. its to the very right of the town if you didnt read above.

    Either the elder or someone who i'm guessing is the ex hunter will pop up and show a few things. no need to worry.

    Kill a Aptonoth (one of them big ol' dinosaurs) and carve some raw meat off them. then head to the camp place on the minimap. next to area 2.

    Talk to the guy in the camp place 3 times, your Raw Meat count should decrease by 1.

    Return to town. now what he wanted was for you to cook some steak.

    Talk to the elder. he should give you some money and the spit.

    Go back to the "Mountains"

    Pull out the spit and cook away, If you dont have any raw meat kill some more aptonoth's.

    Now go to Area 6, im pretty sure this isn't unlocked at the very beginning so it will be a new place you see on the minimap. you'll see a little fmv of this monster who looks like a velociraptor(Jagi) or something.

    Kill these guys until you have killed 5 or you get 30 points. there'll be a little counter at the bottom.

    Return to town, look for the guy who i called the Guild Tally Dude. he should have a yellow box on top of his head.

    Talk to him, select option 2. get your rewards & points. Then select option 4. a big stamp thing should show up after clicking a few times.

    Now talk to the weapon smith, then the elder, they both should have yellow boxes on top of their heads.. The weaponsmith wants a Iron Ore (i guess?) so you go to the elder for some money and a pickaxe <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

    Now head back to the "farm" and head to area 4. Careful around here as there are (i'm assuming) Khezu Whelps around in this area.

    Explore a bit and you'll find a mining point. mine till you cant or if you really want leave after the first one. You just wont get as many ore's

    Return to town, talk to the weaponsmith and choose the last option. Another big stampy thing.

    Now a few people should have yellow boxes on them. talk to them all. Return to the "farm" and head to area 11.

    Kill a Big Fish thing , both if you really want. and return to town.

    Talk to everyone and by now you should be able to talk to the Quest Giver for the beginning quests <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    <b><!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->Questing! <!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--></b></u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->
    Basic overview of what you need to do and how to rank up. (Thanks to G0dlike for the quests). A bit of color coding here,<!--coloro:#00FF00--><span style="color:#00FF00"><!--/coloro--> Green<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--> are the quests i did. a " <!--coloro:#FF0000--><span style="color:#FF0000"><!--/coloro-->*<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--> " next to the quest means there is something you have to watch out for.

    <u><!--sizeo:4--><span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->1* Quests <!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--></u>
    Now there are a 6 quests here in the 1*. all pretty easy. just the one you have to watch out for. to unlock the urgent you need to do 4 of the 6 quests. The quests are as follows;

    <!--coloro:#00FF00--><span style="color:#00FF00"><!--/coloro--><u>Gather 3 White Mushrooms</u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->
    This one is pretty straight forward, just gather 3 white mushrooms

    <!--coloro:#00FF00--><span style="color:#00FF00"><!--/coloro--><u>Deliver 2 Kelbi Horns</u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->
    Once Again, pretty straightforward, kill the deer looking things. when they are stunned/on the floor, carve them. after that simply kill them and carve them again if you wish

    <u>Catch and Deliver 3 Goldfish</u>
    i'll stop commenting on the straightforward ones from now on .

    <!--coloro:#00FF00--><span style="color:#00FF00"><!--/coloro--><u>Slay Jagiinosu </u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->
    Just in case you didnt know, the Jaginosu are found along side the raptor (Jagi) things. They're bigger, tougher and deal more damage, The Jagi's Female Counterpart <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />. you should be able to tell the difference off the bat. Kill these guys until you get the mission clear.

    <!--coloro:#00FF00--><span style="color:#00FF00"><!--/coloro--><u>Deliver 3 Monster Livers</u><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--> <!--coloro:#FF0000--><span style="color:#FF0000"><!--/coloro-->*<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->
    Now this is very similar to the mhf/2/u quest "The Sinking Feeling" where you encounter the Tigrex. With this one, you'll have to go to the underwater areas and kill lapras like things. Im pretty sure they are Rudros but don't quote me on that. Kill them until you get 3 Monster Livers. There's a catch with this though mission though, you'll run into something called the Lagiacrus. Big nasty thing that shoots electricity everywhere. as soon as you see this guy, RUN. you wont stand a chance against him the first time round.

    <u>Scavenge the ocean floor for 8 Crimson Coral</u>
    -

    <u><b>The Urgent! - Slay 6 Rudros</b></u>
    Pretty simple, just kill 6 of the things. you'll find them in the underwater areas.

    Congrats you are now onto the 2* missions <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/gbasp.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":yaysp:" border="0" alt="gbasp.gif" />

    (rest are being worked on, if you want the other missions you can see G0dlike's post on the 2nd page, or you can click <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=&showtopic=171691&view=findpost&p=2194550" target="_blank">here</a>)

    When talking to the man campside, make sure you have a piece of meat "readied" as you ready your whet. Then talk to him and you will give him the meat automatically. return to town and talk to elder, receive money and spit.

    Ok, NP

    So, when you´ve killed some dino looking monster, put away your weapon, stand at the slain monster and press A to farm it for some meat. When you have the meat, press and hold L and press B until you can see the piece of meat in the bottom right corner of your screen, then go to the camp guy and talk to him.

    Done. Return to town and talk to elder, receive money and spit.

    ARG! Well my first attempt to use the English patch has failed, I will try it again later.

    Unfortunately I can no longer run MH3 from USBLoader GX no matter what I try. It does still work from Uloader (which I don't like as much). Strange.

    I'm not able to get the pickaxe from the elder, I've chopped up lots of velociraptors and I've clicked on all inds of stampy things with the Tally guy and the Weaponsmith.

    The English Patch doesn't work for me, I've tried several times with different setups. Can anyone guide me into the next level?

    Thanks!
