Best weapon? Pogo stick supremacy.

The light bow gun is good for speed.

I always liked the insect glaive, but hammer builds and charge axes were great, too! 

I think my favorite hame was Monster Hunter 4, that seemed to tick off all the boxes for me!

I should try charge blade at some point. My closest experience was with switch axes which I enjoyed quite a bit, but then I tried IG and it clicked so hard I haven't used anything else since.

It would be fun to at least try to be competent with every weapon though.

The only game I've played is Monster Hunter Rise and I started of with the long sword, then eventually tried the bow, and I've been using the LBG and am loving it so far.

So I'd like to join the club of people who hate Plesioth please.

I haven't hunted one yet as monster hunter rise doesn't have Plesioth to hunt though they might add it in Sunbreak.

The guy is huge, but clearly not as big as his invisible hitboxes. And apparently they were nerfed quite a bit, I shudder to think what this fight was like in FU.

Best/worst part is that the game is fully aware of the fame he has and happily warns you that his hip attack is annoying. Well it is, and the tail spin doesn't fall behind either.

I'm upgrading for now, clearly my LR Astalos armor has its days counted. I'll need some actual HR armor if I don't want this guy to take 2/3 of my life with each hipcheck. Farming Barroths right now.

They are adding astaflos in Sunbreak and Plesioth is a piscine wyvern right? Jyuratodus was pretty easy to hunt in rise but I've heard it was harder in previous games.

I haven't hunted that one but in my very limited experience with piscine wyverns, I may just dislike them in general. Cephadrome is a significantly easier fight but annoying for the same reasons. That and the thing spending half the hunt under the sand. Though I have to thank him, he was the monster that made me try Insect Glaive. I was having a really hard time with long sword, some people suggested a weapon that gave you more height, Aerial IG seemed obvious and the hunt became a walk in the park.

I had to start on another account if I wanted to play sunbreak when it came out with my brother and I wanted to start a new weapon and choose the LBG but my brother also choose the LBG. I think they changed it because Jyuratodus didn't stay under the water the whole time and I could attack it while it was underwater, because then you only see the top half. Do they go completely underwater in the game you play?

You only see the fin though I can't remember in Cephadrome's case, maybe he goes completely under the sand. You have to wait until they come out or fish them out. I think sonic bombs are the standard for that.

You can always shoot a part of Jyuratodus and it never goes where you can't shoot or attack it, so I think they fixed the piscine wyvern class in MHR.
