  • Best Monster Hunting Alliance

    Considering this issue carefully I have decided that Layla-Monkey King-Moonlight Dragon is best. Hansa is right in that maximizing damage per stamina, ala Malekus-Kang-Beast Master is not optimal because most drops depend on stamina spent, and though loot is optimized by damage per stamina (you get the most loot per stamina with Malekus alliance), campaign tasks make loot irrelevant because loot thresh-holds are so much lower than 15% of total monster health.

    Layla maximizes MK stamina bonus while also upping damage per stamina of Moonlight Dragon bonus, the best of two worlds.

    For the vast majority of toons, Barbarus-Dolomar-Monkey King remains best, because Layla, Kang, Moonlight Dragon, and Beastmaster are difficult to get and to promote.

      If you plan for medium or long term, go for Dolomar. Experience needed is not the problem when leveling, it is crystals, and both of them need the same amount. In the end, Dolomar provides +2% more crit chance than Kaiser (or 1% if you have Backdraft and Kaiser is leading, which is unlikely)

        The problem is that Dolomar is capped at 6 stars, so I can see where Kaiser would be better. Similarly Beastmaster is better than Moonlight Dragon, but much harder to get and promote. Currently only three people have Beastmaster while 1000 people have Moonlight Dragon.

        Another problem is crystals. Surprisingly not many have a triple level 80 alliance.

          Why do you say Dolomar is capped at 6*? To my knowledge, it has reduced odds to appear in Mystic Emporium, that's all. Mine is at 6* and on its way to 7 (it would be 7* long ago if I didn't refuse to pay for orbs)

            Thoughts on best monster hunter alliance using only favor generals?

              If you also do some pvp with favor generals only, my bet is:
              Barbarus - Dolomar - Guinevere*
              *: for stats purposes, as you will level her anyway for pvp. Useful too against Chromus.

              If you only hunt or you pvp alliance is more skill-focused (Muse, Dawn, Syren, Bogo...), I gues I would go with:
              Barbarus - Dolomar - Your aggressive general of choice, max-level, multi-starred
              or
              Dolomar - Kaiser - Barbarus

                Or Barb-Dolo-Sahar if you're a high LSI build with very low attack.

                  Sooner than later you'll have enough IA bonus to make Sahar worthless, I would skip her if asked, as she adds nothing else and doesn't help at all in pvp

                    My monster hunting alliance is currently Dolomar-Barbarus-Beastmaster. But as I said before damage per stamina is not so important anymore, as drops like essence or meteorites are dependent on stamina only not damage.

                      I have been using a Solara/Dominus/whoever alliance for events.

                        damage per stamina helps though if you want to make the monster leaderboard top 100 for bonus crystals. i had forgotten that.

                          My MH loadout:

                          Kaiser L80 7 Star
                          Barbarus L80 6 Star
                          Moonlight L24 2 Star (Replaced Straticus)

                          The bonuses:
                          +28.36% Critical Chance
                          +23.2% Monster Hunter
                          +18% Critical Damage
                          +1019 Attack and +603 Defense

                          I went with maximized Critical Hits / damage per Crit.

                          I've been happy with the results.

                          Given the two L80s, i'm not likely to replace those... just keep building the new Moonlight.

                            That's an optimal alliance, except Monkey King instead of Kaiser or Barbarus might be a little bit better. If you don't have a 3 or 4 star Monkey King then stick with Kaiser/Barbarus.

                              I think ideal will be: Dolomar, Barbarus, Guinevere.
