          Poor Rathian...
          Always living under the shadow of her mate... Rathian as always been in monster Hunter but do we give her credit...
          It’s just sad...

            i heard she was way harder in the old games, some say her back flips were unpredictable. I guess were lucky to have this version of Rathian.

              Fought MR Rathian 3 times each time got 2 rubies, 2 rubies no mantles in each mission. That would be great if I needed 6 rubies but I don't need 6 rubies I need 1 mantle, but I got 6 rubies, 2 rubies each mission. I fought her 6 times, I got 2 rubies each time! In 3 mission I got 6 Rathian Rubies! No mantle, I got 0 mantles I need 1 but I got 6 rubies!

                The Rathian Hunting Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 50 minute hunting test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the nest. The poison spam speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [Diving screech] A single hit should be landed each time you hear this sound. [fireball shot] Remember to bring antidotes, and run as long as possible. The third time you fail to slay Rathian , your test is over. The test will begin on the quest start. On your mark, get ready, quest start.
