    I've just been upgrading the Origin set to max. Which i know was probably the wrong thing to do.

    To be fair it's served me well.

    I've barely come a cropper in battle to date.

    I have low rank Anja and Legiana armour.
    Plus massively pimped Pukei gloves for the poison resist.

    The HR armour now offers a choice of gem slots or bonus skills. Which route have people gone for?

    I've been mainly plumping for the gem slots as it gives you a bit more freedom

    I used bone armour levelled up to 3 for low rank as I didnt want to waste the armour cores.

    I now have fully upgraded pink rath and mostly upgraded legiana high rank stuff.

    I went alpha sets at first until I had some decent decorations then replaced pieces as needed. Some of the alpha sets are pretty good until you get decent decorations.

    Is there a strategy for getting better decorations or is it just praying to RNG gods? All I seem to get is fucking Miasma Jewels and am really after that Protective Polish skill.

    How about a Gaijin Hunter one?
    Ok, that was very useful. 😊

    I think you have to let RNJesus take the wheel on this one. I have no idea what the drop rate is but currently it seems quite arbitrary.

    Did the arena event with the three monsters (1 Diablos, 2 Barroths), and that also counted as finsihing the "kill a Diablos" main story quest I had failed before. Oops. :)

    Huge thanks to John and Chris for walking me through the last few elder dragons on PS4. Have now completed the story missions on both and am now able to just mess around and kill monsters for fun :).

    Following that IG video I've decided to go for a heal dust kinsect. This makes me happier about dropping the vigorwasps.
    I've also made more of a point of going for kinsect buffs before entering combat. In summary, you totally need a red buff.

    @shamblemonkee :) i still havent beaten every monster in the game (i am looking at you Bagel) and even worse, there are some monsters that i have only beaten on one console and not the other.

    Lastly, i have egg missions i have been ignoring up until now and i need to deal with the plunderers on ps4.

    The dual blade cartwheel attack is nuts. Legit nuts. Nothing is as satisfying as going head to tail like a beyblade of razors, carving monsters up.

    @Graxlar_v3 nah man. Hammer is weak sauce compared to this.

    I played with somebody yesterday whose bow was causing fireworks to go off around the monster.

    I think I've never played dual blades in any game, ever. There's something so inherently silly about it that I'd even rather use a comical, oversized anime sword than dual blades.

    @Graxlar_v3 well, no, it can't! But it can take out the final boss with 7 repetitions of the cartwheel, and sever its tail. So there's that!

    There are no weak weapons I'm convinced. Hammer bros are great to have around, though online behaviour of players stopped me using it.

    Monster down? Time for bing bang combo to KO the monster aaaaand I'm getting tripped by longsword users.

    MOTHER FUCKERS, GO FOR THR TAIL.

    @H1ggyLTD sure that wasn't just the dragon piercer attack? Could have been a bow with blast element, or blast coating on, I guess.

    Did he not conclude that blast dust was the way to go?

    I decided to take on (rather than dung-bombing) a B52 last night in expedition mode with an IG. Found it surprising manageable. Didn't manage to kill it before it despawned but then my gear wasn't optimised. I did chop its tail off though.

    He did. But I liked the idea of the healing clouds from the kinsect as a replacement for vigorwasps.
    And based on my (uneducated) experience with poison dust, I'm unlikely to get the monster, the blast cloud and my IG in the same place at the same time!! :)

    The main two tips I really picked up were the true value of the kinsect buffs, and that you want your kinsect to have high speed.
