@Link: Sorry, overread that one.

Naw, you don't need to flash it. I never do that. I just use a massive hammer and DONE.

hammer or hunting horn: -also good for greatsword- flash him and pound his face as much as possible at the start then go for the same leg as with the swords when flashes are gone.

I strongly advice to just focus on hitting his head. Attacking the leg is simply unuseful. There are no limits of knocking a monster unconscious, atleast not that I know of.

bow and bow guns: dont get hit Razz

Also a good thing for bow/bowguns is to stay on the sides of him, and focusing on his back/head.

Akantor's head can be broken two times, his fangs. There is also a spike (or more) that you can break on his back. You can break his frontal "paws" aswell, and ofcourse, cut his tail (which is strongly unadvicable, both for the risk, the lack of experience and what Link said earlier).

I wouldnt bother using flashbombs unless he's charging at you, there are plenty of openings.

I would definitely recommend using a hammer. Its the easiest weapon to use against an Akantor.

The tactics are pretty basic: If its your first time hunting an Akantor, try to use the charge-attack at him (max level), play alittle, observe his attacks, and openings. When you feel comfy enough to use a triple-pound, go for it.

A few examples for a triple-pound:
When he is taunting (idle)
When he is doing his tail-attack (just gotta be at the right spot, not really hard after a few tries.
Right after he uses his scream attack (gotta have high grade earplugs, and be careful not to get hit by his head once it lands)
When he is turning (this might be tricky, but possible, just be in the right position)

What? Heavenly Scales? You really don't need them throughout the entire game if you aren't an equipment-whore like me.

Do you need the Rathalos Soul Z armor, or do you want it? By the way, don't answer that.
Honestly, just move on with your life and use something like Lava X.

To be fair you never really need anything special in order to progress. All it takes is something with a lot of damage and something with a lot of defense, that's about it.

Well, it's sort of a given that you have those when you're at HR8.

Well, all I am saying is you could be at HR9 getting Yamatsukami armor or something rather than spending a millenium on scales. And if you are as awesome as me, then all it takes is some mishmash out of Rathalos Soul Z parts that don't take a Scale, Akantor and Khezu Z (after you beat Ukanlos it's pretty much at around 611 defense and has some really nice skills for offensive players.)

AbsoluteZero, it seems that you dont like gathering =P

Gathering is one of the most fun and most frustrating thing on Monster Hunter. The satisfying feeling when you complete a set you've worked on for weeks or more. I remember the time when I made my first White Fatalis set... good times :3

Of course I like gathering, in fact I am a clepto in terms of getting equipment. All I am saying is that this man could first get all of his quests done and get some far superior armor, so he has an easier time grinding for those overkill-rare Heavenly Scales.
Your best bet of getting them is the quest Decendants of the King, which is terribly hard even with awesome gear. It's also on HR9, which he still has to get to, it seems.

The irony is that I am spamming Decendants of the King and get trolled by the game by only giving my Rathian Scales. I have like 12 of them, and yet not a single Rathalos one.
