Hunting Horn Guide

  A difficult to master weapon but pays off with the power of a hammer and works as a great support weapon. Each hunting horn has different buffs. To access the buffs you need a certain musical note that you can get by using certain attacks. Say for example a buff requires you to have 2 white notes and a blue note that would mean you need to use 2 normal attacks and a heavy attack. You can then play the hunting horn that will buff you and your fellow hunters. These attacks dont need to hit a monster but a good hunting horn hunter can weave his attacks and melodies together while focusing on a monster. Like the hammer you will want to focus on the head and other parts that dont require cutting damage.
