MH2 - Ruststone and Ancient Stone Guide

created by Vax-san.

 

 

The sequence of quality of weapons that come from rust/ancient stones is always the same:

xxxxx#xxxxxxxxxxxx#xx#@xxxxxx@@xx#xx...


x = very poor quality weapon (ex: Iron Sword+).

# = poor quality weapon for Ruststones (ex: Buster Blade), or unique weapons for Ancient Stones (ex: Guardian Sword). Positions 6, 19, 22 and 34.

@ = Rust or Ancient weapon (ex: Rusted Great Sword). Positions 23, 30 and 31.


The sequence starts when you turn the game on or reset it. If you leave the village to the start menu without turning the console off or reseting it, the sequence continues where it had stopped, even if you don't save (take advantage of it, so you don't waste stones).

However, upon returning to the village again, the current quality of the sequence becomes x, even if it is supposed to be @ or #.


What makes the sequence advance:

-Completing a quest;

-Failing a quest;

-Polishing a Ruststone or an Ancient Stone in the armory (so the more stones you have, the faster you can create the desired weapons).


Valuable tip: Creating equipments in Kokoto Village is way faster than in Jumbo Village.


An example of how to procede with 10 stones:

[xxxxx#xxxx] [xxxxxxxx#x] [x] [# becomes a x] [@] [xxxxx] [x] [@@] xx#xx...

Polish 10 stones, leave without saving;

Polish 10 stones, leave without saving;

Polish 1 stone, leave without saving;

Complete a quest OR polish 1 stone (which will be polished for good);

Create the @ weapon, save the game;

Polish 5 stones, leave without saving;

Complete a quest OR polish 1 stone (which will be polished for good);

Create 2 @ weapons and save the game.
