I'm listening to the Triple Click pod and Kirk Hamilton is talking about it. He said he was using the twin blades (my weapon of choice in World) and he said he was getting bored because it's so straight forward (re: easy). Then he switched to the long sword and he started geeking out because of how interesting and complicated it is. I'm just curious, what weapon are you using? I haven't picked Rise up yet, but it's probably coming soon.
Even for a relative newcomer like me, the game is quite easy until you get to some of the later LR hunts. Then everyone says HR is a big jump in difficulty (I'm not there yet). So also worth keeping that in mind. I'm partway through 4* hunts and I haven't carted yet.
I like the sword and shield. What everyone says about needing to play around to find what works for you is spot-on. I gravitated toward the dual blades in World and started with them in the Rise demoes, but they just had me feeling a little "...eh." I watched a video of someone playing with S&S and the playstyle stuck out to me a lot more. I spent a couple hours with them and it just felt SO much better to me. So I've been using that my whole time in Rise so far.
I want to try something ranged, and something large/slow/powerful eventually. But think I'm sticking with S&S for a while.
