      when you go up to the observation deck behind the workshop, you see an area thaat is like steped waterfalls. Does this area unlock later in the game or is is just a tease?

        ......which is a superb rpg!!! Beginners shouldn't worry too much about how fast they can rank up in my experience just stick to the assigned quests if you're that bothered about a high hunter rank. YOU WILL NOT RANK UP DOING OPTIONAL QUESTS, EXPEDITIONS, EVENTS, OR INVESTIGATIONS IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THE GAME. This is the first game in the series that I've played and I must say I'm having an absolute blast, and this is best tip I can give you. You will find out quite early on that the levelling up in this title is completely different to most of the games you will have played so far.....if you can get past that then you're golden. Oh, also..take advantage of the delivery ship every time it turns can order things from the captain such as Trade-In Items, Consumables, Rare Crafting Items, etc.........................Personally, I always order Trade-In Items because for just a few Research Points you can make some serious Money. For instance, the last order I put in cost me just under 1000 research points and I made 22,500z. Well worth it!!!

        Good luck and happy hunting!!!

          Can someone please put together a table of the experience required for each "unlocked" hunter rank? -Thank you!

          • Here’s a little tip. Whenever you start ANY quest, take EVERYTHING from the Free Box. Obviously, you should share with your teammates, but once everybody is stocked up, take everything else. I see so many people overlooking this, especially when it comes to the ammo and coatings because it doesn’t apply to their melee weapons.

            TAKE ALL THE AMMO!
            Then, walk into the tent, put it into your item box, rinse and repeat until there’s none left.
            Many people don’t realize that YOU CAN SELL THIS AMMO! (you can sell other stuff too but the ammo is the real cash cow.)
            Yes you only get 1 or 2 zenny per bullet but it stacks up fast! Especially fast if you party up frequently which multiplies the free ammo.
            You can easily generate thousands of free zenny this way.

            Sell their own supplies back to them.
            You’re basically a pirate.

              Essentially, the most important elements in the game are knowing what combos your weapon can do, learning the monsters' movements, and upgrading your gear when you feel the game is getting too difficult. Expeditions are a great way to learn what a monster does without penalties. Armor (elemental weaknesses and stats) and monster physiology (field guide) both give hints as to what a moster is weak to. For weapons, dont compare atk of one weapon to another (look up "monster hunter bloated attack). Optional quests can also give upgrades (the ones that have speech bubbles) or are just good practice. Other than that, just experiment with your setups until you find something you like.

              Theres so many more details, but this is probably the best summary i can come up with, and dont forget to take your time and enjoy the game! (rushing it may change your view)

                As i have notice while playing the game farming the large monster materials such as rathalos or diablos is vital for gaining materials for crafting is great, i believe it is best to farm the smaller monsters as it come to a point where you will need all the extra materials for example the hornitaur materials for the odogoran armor including the odogoran materials. Besides armor and weapons money or (zenny) is the thing the whole game revolves around, gaining a good amount is great which allows weapon/amor forging or purchasing a brease or your to lazy to craft the materials for postions buy lets say 99x potions from the auctioneer, which is about 3000 zenny 3000-4000 zenny so getting a good quest and adding a voucher is a good idea you can find the optional quest in the coral highlands from a palicoe village which gives you the quest to slay 2 Titzi-ya-ku's for 9000 zenny you can double that to 18000 zenny by adding a voucher which you get from the loggin bonus you get daily, and if you don't know this the quest is a maximum of one player, as for doing quests or hard to do missions,optional,investigations,or events play it with players its helpful to play with other people but with friends is better then any random group because of communication purposes, although fighting with friends or randoms may increase the difficulty or (health in the monsters) its good for the monster to have a distraction "if you know what i mean ;D" oh and finally just be ready for a mission coming to antidotes, herbal medicines, potions, tranqs, and traps. so hope this post helps and if you actually read all of this have a good day.

                  Probably the easiest way to view progress is loot, you want a cool armour set, look at the monster weakness and find a weapon for it, if no weapon is available go and farm it. rinse and repeat, now if you want to farm easy monster's then go on SoS quests as this wil save alot of time and effort. And when it comes to hunting in general always at minimum bring 5 herbal medicine, 10 mega health potions, 2 traps, 10 tranq bombs and a slinger ammo if possible.

                    Progress in terms of large monsters and the order at which you should attempt them, would be nice.. like farming Anjanath to get your first fire armour to then try for Rathalos then Rathian ect..
