              To be able to defeat this monster, you have to collect tracks right? what pursuit level do you need in order to fight her till the end?

                Was hoping to get a Kulve Taroth hammer while doing the seige (I'm a hammer user). Ever since I was able to get a weapon item from breaking one of her horns, the only thing I unfortunately got was *I think* a water element hunting Horn. Once the siege comes back, I'm gonna keep doing it until I get that hammer. Hopefully I get one that's either water or dragon element.

                  Are Kulve Taroth weapons with defense bonus coming with this Divine Blessing? I keep having "damages reduced" messages while I don't have this skill...

                      Okay folks, a few things we should all know by now when we rock this siege with a party. 1.) Please press Options/Start to skip the cutscene. It only works if EVERYONE presses it. 2.) Until your Pursuit Level is up, there's almost no point in chasing Kulve around during the first phase and doing piddily melee. Focus on grabbing footprints, dropping boulders, and firing cannons. You'll do WAAAAY more damage and increase Pursuit Level much faster. 3.) Fight in open space and make sure you have an out! I can't count the number of times an entire team will willingly trap itself in corners and hallways, and then get wiped out by a flood of fire or the Taroth Roll. I would think this is common sense, but eh, who knows. 4.) During the third phase, lure her to the falling boulders! It's a ton of free damage and a long knockdown, usually on top of lava eruptions for extra damage. Also, make sure you have friends around to take advantage of the knockdown! 5.) Don't run in by yourself! Even if you manage to score some damage and a knockdown, there's no point unless your entire team can capitalize on it. 6.) During the second and fourth stages, there are ample opportunities to mount Kulve. Use them if you can, but only if it seems safe. And to that point, 7.) Stay safe! You'll increase pursuit level much faster if you survive the battle, so there's little reason to take unnecessary risks or impatient actions. And for the love of god, top off that health bar! No one's going to call you a hero if you keep swinging away with half health. I may have Level 5 Wide-Range, but I can't always save your ass! So... yeah... have fun folks!

                        People complaining about gems are hilarious. Must be newbies to the MH franchise. Suck it up and farm kiddos.
