That's what I don't understand, I don't know what the hell HR is. That's why I have no idea where to go in the online menu's, I don't know what to click.

HR is Hunter Rank. Hunter Rank is like your "level". There are so called "key quests" that unlocks "urgent quests" and when you complete a urgent quest, your HR will go up, meaning that you can hunt bigger and harder monsters. When you do that, you get better equipments. HR 0-2 are low rank, 3-5 high rank and 6+ are G-rank. Dunno if there's something more, I just got HR6 myself. You really doesn't know what's the key quest if you don't use any guide. And trust me, you will end use guides A LOT. And that OK, since that's what thats about. There isn't tutorials that will hold your hand and grand instant kill Deviljho if you wet yourself when it arrives, but there is MH community! Other players are kind and helpful, so no elitist bastards here like in other games *coughwowcodloletccough*

Here's couple of helpful links:
Weapon trees: http://www.gamefaqs.com/3ds/642342-monster-hunter-3-ultimate/faqs
Ultimate Hunter Helper: http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Monster_Hunter_Wiki

Monster Hunter Wikia will include all info that you will need when you hunt. Key quests, monster data (weaknesses and stuff), skill info, weapon and armor set infos and etc. I have it always open in my tablet or cellphone when I'm playing.

Hopefully that helps.

PS: 78h and FINALLY HR6! G-rank quest farming ahoy!

You have to be kidding me. The current Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate community is disgusting, and nothing but elitist.

"Anyone having trouble finding <a very rare monster part>? Because I've just found 6, duur."
"Just thought I'd create a topic stating that I can defeat <monster regarded by the community as difficult> with my eyes closed, duur."
"This game is too easy, duur."
"I think I'm going to have trouble with this monster, any advi...oh wait, I just finished it and it was easy lolwtf hahacapcom."

I don't know what happened. Monster Hunter Tri had a great community, one that actually had the humility to admit to a monster being difficult or challenging.

Are you talking about MiiVerse? Because I think Kamiyama was talking about the actual players in the game.

I hooked up with some people today and I told them I was new and such and a few vets joined me and weren't hating on me. Fun people to play with.

This game is fun, but I've got two issues with it. First, HR rank isn't as enticing for replayability as Tri, though some would disagree. Second, the freaking textures are terrible. Some things look beautiful, some things do not. (Anyone who's been to D.Island, Area 10 know this to be true). I know this game is a port, but I wish it was completely overhauled. I would have waited a few more months for that. The biggest thing that surprised me is how I switched from a blade user to a bow user in this game. I never did like bowguns, but the bow and arrow is so fun :D

I just got the game, and im about 10 hours in. Anyone want to team up and take care of HR1 missions and such? I'm new to the franchise so don't hate me.

My best friend and I just got done with HR1 stuff. Haven't done the Urgent Lagi yet, as we actually aren't properly prepared. The available monsters in HR1 and their subsequent armor and weapons just don't seem up to par for going against Lagi without some serious work on Armor Sphere farming (in my opinion, don't hate me). Of course, I'm a switch axe player, so the trees for my weapon of choice may seem a little lack luster as they did in Tri. (Haven't had a chance to look over any weapons trees yet.) Still, loving the game. My wife and I play together, with me on my 3DS. Its been a great experience for us as a couple. The family that games together, stays together. ^_^

I would help you guys out with the HR1 (or 2) stuff, but the cross-region patch comes next week. I only hit HR4 myself last night to find that HR4 Lagi isn't quite as friendly to me as he used to be in HR2...

Personally I find that the type/element of weapon you use doesn't matter too much in HR1/2. What matters more is learning to get your hits in between attacks and how to avoid attacks. If that's not enough for you, then try and get a full Barroth set for its defence boost. That kept me alive all the way through HR1-3 (I only fainted the very first time against Lagi, and never again until Brachydios).

If I ever stop being tired today I'll help you guys out. I don't mind because I've been farming Lagiacrus forever so I can get the helm and plate from it. Strangely enough, I swear using the Lagia sword and shield against it helps. Anyways, posted some videos on the first post.

You don't need to do gathering quests to get next Hunter Rank. Just take a look in Monster Hunter Wikia and search for the key quests to Guild Quests.

Multiplayer options include 3DS-3DS via adhoc, 3DS-WiiU via adhoc, WiiU online via Internet, and 3DS online via WiiU proxy.

I don't know if WiiU-WiiU local WiFi works because I only have one WiiU.

Thanks for the reply, I meant specifically about local mutliplayer on a single Wii u. Perhaps splitscreen or maybe one player on the gamepad the other using a pro controller and the TV?

On a single WiiU, your only option is one person playing on WiiU, and everybody else playing on 3DS. No splitscreen option exists, and the gamepad acts the same as the bottom screen on the 3DS version anyway (shows the map and some shortcut buttons). And if you use a pro controller, you will disable the controls on the gamepad (because you can't control both at once) although the touchscreen will still work as normal.

Next week an update is being released to let you play on the gamepad without the TV, but that's not really relevant to your question.

The patch is actually tomorrow at 5:00pm EST for Off-TV play.

The game is great but so vast. Sadly I know no one so am always looking for some place for noobs to unite. I always have trouble doing subquest such as acquiring Barroth Tails and Flints. >_>

Give me an add; my NNID is Hmirza.

Just go to freeplay and look for people doing HR1 quests, or go to the beginners lobby.

Also the Update came out. Off-Tv Play and Cross Region online play with Europe and North America.

Local multiplayer and online multiplayer are different options in the game. It's one or the other. Besides, the hardware doesn't work like that - its either WiFi in adhoc for local multiplayer, or WiFi normal for online play. You can't have it both ways, and this is exactly why the Ethernet needs to be plugged in for the relay app to work.
