The Ecology section displays the monster's most basic information. Here, you can find all info regarding the monster's characteristics, it's type, the amount of this monster type that you have slain/captured, it's threat level, size, and Habitats.


Physiology MH Rise.jpgEnlarge

The Physiology section is exclusive to large monster types. Here, you can find each part's traits. The higher the number, the more effective that damage type is. Each monster part has a different type of modifier, most notably, hammers are often weak to blunt attacks on the head and slash type weapons are often offective against tails. Make sure to check your hunter notes before facing off against a mighty foe!

Ailments are similar to Physiology in that it is only unique to Large Monsters. Ailments have a star rating ranging from 1 star to 3 stars. The higher the star, the more effective that ailment is against the foe. Make sure to always use 3 star ailments and elements if you plan to use them against monsters for maximum effectiveness!

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
