quote Phlogistonyou ever think of joining the forum full time? I like you're idea, though, but I think the staves should have detachable parts like clubs and blades (on either end) to do either impact damage or cutting . If you have a bladed ends the attack style is different from the original style, same would go for the clubbed ends. The shells as you put them might also come in differing levels like bowgun ammo does, and each stave has more than one type of "shells" it can use. For example a lagi staff might use the thunder element or water element, but you could get an element boost for using his main element, or it just can't use higher levels of water.The staff itself is about, say, 7+ feet long. It highly resembles the Agnablaster bowgun, except with a larger dorsal fin. On each end of the staff, there's an agnaktor beak connected to the beginning of the fin, which spirals 360 degrees around the staff to terminate at the other beak. The staff contains several shells (like a gunlance), which are used to produce both a ranged elemental blast (in the agnaktor's case, a laser) from the forward-facing beak, or two elementally colored "blowtorch flames" from both ends of the staff. When the shells have been used, one reloads them by "breaking" the staff in half like a shotgun, discarding the spent shells, and inserting new ones before folding the staff back into its normal configuration. This "broken" position is also how one carries the staff while sheathed, like a folding bowgun.
Details: The staff's normal attacks are an incredible series of skillful twirling, stabbing and ramming moves (imagine a kung fu master with his wooden staff). When the blowtorch flames are not activated, the staff has no element at all. With them active, however, the staff gains a strong element, along with a substantial attack boost. The use of the flames (by clicking Z) steadily removes shells from one's clip until either they run out, or blowtorch mode is cancelled (by clicking Z again). Blowtorch mode uses the staff's normal attacks, now with flaming tips.
Note: The "flames" can be any element depending on the monster the staff is made from. The Ala staff would have drgn-looking flames pouring from the rifle-like ends of a black, double-bladed sword with glowing purple highlights.
Back to the agnaktor staff: Holding down Z initiates firing mode, whereupon one aims the staff using a system similar to when wyverfire is shot from a bowgun. Letting go of Z releases a long-range elemental blast, which, depending on the staff's monster, are designed and animated differently, but still confined to the same range and narrow hitbox. These blasts use one shell each, and can be woven into any combo, with or without blowtorch.
Movement: One can move fairly quickly with a GnS due to its balanced weight. Evasion is normal... or maybe a pole vault. lol.
Now you know how I think of a MH staff.
quote hitman9992Are you thinking of a gnarled stick with a crystal ball on top? I'm not.Idk if this would be a little to sci-fi but maybe a staff that shoots certain elements could be a weapon. It would be under the gunner classes
quote GeckoCookieActually, FYI, there IS a tank in monster hunter. There's a light bowgun in MHFU called the "Tigrex Tank". It resembles...well, a tank (can't quite place the model), covered in tigrex skin, that one holds on one's arm. I was incredibly amused when I came across it in the wiki. To me, it looks awesome rather than stupid.Tanks.
Stupid in MH.
