    I have kind of stalled a bit - I decided I wanted to get my research level,s for all monsters I've encountered so far, up to 6, so I'm grinding through investigations.
    I was doing an expedition at Elder Recess at the weekend, found a footprint for ??? which had me quite excited. Realised when I got back to camp that it was only for a Lavisoth, which I've only fought once before, and therefore had zero research for. Such a disappointment.

    I've not hunted any of the monsters from the Elder Recess yet - we should plan to meet up and do some together...

    The stream is going on right now.

    - Faster load times!
    - New dance emotes! There's a disco one that I would happily pay for, given the outstanding support the game is getting
    - Return to the gathering hall option, and super armour while carving
    - Free ticket to re-customise your character
    - All blade weapons got buffed, charge blade got nerfed. Don't use it so can't really elaborate...
    - Spring festival from 6-20th April. Gathering hall will be done up with a GIANT POOGIE STATUE, MY GOD. All event quests will be available during the festival
    - Deviljho armour screenies have been released (somewhere on Twitter)
    - Megaman Palico armour on 13th April
    - New Poogie costume during the festival!
    - New Astera music!
    - Big one for me; there's a community-created great sword, the Wyvern Ignition. It is, I kid you not, a rocket-propelled great sword. I'm shitting my pants with excitement

    I'm crying right now, so much good stuff. :cry:

    Apparently the stats for that new GS.

    It already looks to be the strongest GS in the game.

    Oh dear. Broken weapon incoming.

    yeah, but not a long lasting weapon though - its going to demand handicraft 3 and protective polish.

    Predominantly bow user here. Does that miniscule sharpness bar basically mean you'll get maybe one or 2 hits per tier before having to resharpen? Will even handicraft and protective polish make up for it? I can't even see the different colours, it's so small.

    Yeah. That sharpness bar is predominantly red coloured. Looks like a hit, run and sharpen kind of playstyle is in order.

    Still tempted to handicraft/ razor sharpness/ elementless jewell it and see how it goes...

    Handicraft 3 would fill the bar with white, protective polish stops you losing sharpness for a set time (don't know how long). either of those would make it usable, but you couldn't run it without one of them.

    Just watching the live stream. 'jho vs B52 was great.

    Question: does the switch axe count as a bladed weapon?

    Edit: Bit late on reply, but that's on the Handicraft argument, obviously.

    Sort of.

    Handicraft is always worth going for over attack up, because white sharpness is 1.32x the raw value, blue 1.2x and green 1.05x. I run all my melee sets (unless it's a nerg weapon which cannot get white sharpness) with as much Handicraft as I can.

    This site is very helpful in trying to calculate the "true" attack value of a weapon:
    https://trog.zone/hunter-helper/

    To give you an idea to the numbers you'd be looking at if the damage is legit, the bloat value of GS is 4.8 and using the above calculator with white sharpness and Weakness Exploit 3 is 322. With the Elementless skill boosting your attack by 10% on the raw value to 1173 that becomes 354.

    Compared with Nerg, which is 1008 raw, cannot be boosted as it has 150 Dragon, but no negative affinity you're looking at 284. How that works out with the element damage is dependant upon the monster itself and it's weakness, as well as elemental attacks having much lower scaling than raw damage with sharpness (1.125x for white, 1.0625x for blue, etc).

    Handicraft will pump up that white gauge probably to the end of the sharpness bar, ensuring higher damage output consistently. You obviously lose out on any elemental damage, status effects or Elderseal that comes with other weapons though.

    Did they refer to it as bladed weapons, or Blademaster weapons? Blademaster was the term in earlier MH games for any melee, whilst Gunner was obviously the LBG/HBG and now Bow.

    From Famitsu via GaijunHunter on twitter:

    Festa for 2018 in Japan, March 22 for Deviljho, GS getting buffs to LV2 and LV3 normal.strong charge, LS getting longer foresight window

    SNS getting stronger round slash/ability to use wedge beetles with weapon out, Hammer getting increased stun damage for several attacks

    HH will also give you attack up when you encore on top of knock back protection, GL getting stronger wyvern blasts with less sharpness,

    SA getting LV4 earplugs on the super jump finisher, some new combo paths, etc.

    CB getting nerfed stun for Ultra, elemental phial getting a buff (hell yeah!), better hits for elemental blasts for ultra

    IG getting stronger power up effect, longer duration for all colors, no loss when mounting on timer,

    Lance gets super armor after a successful counter (!?), DB get increases demon gauge increase, Bow just bug fixes, no Bowgun changes

    Faster load times, ability to boot from hall, subtitles size adjust, return to gathering hall after quest (!!!), no flinch during carves!

    Ticket to let you redo your character appearance, free from March 16 but paid DLC in spring.

    Thanks for the translation, chrome gave me a typically bollocks translation in the 2nd person.

    I wonder if they're upping the GS motion value then for Lv.2 and Lv.3 charge... ooh, I'm tingling.

    Also, Wedge Beetles w/ SnS is a fantastic change. That weapon is all about versatility and using the slinger.

    You'd probably only need one point of Handicraft for that sword. GS doesn't eat through sharpness nearly as fast as other weapons.

    It's also competing with the Jagras GS, not Nergigante's. That's currently the best raw GS in the game. The number of slots on this new one could be significant as the Jagras one also has two triples and no need for Handicraft/Protective Polish, which greatly increases set potential.

    Yup, and the Jagras one also is a Rarity 6 weapon so can be augmented 3 times. It is, technically, the strongest GS in the game.

    I just refuse to use it as it's fucking ugly, and this is going to have a rocket engine strapped to the back.

    If you're able to drop down to a single triple slot then Giant Jawblade and Great Wyvern Jawblade are technically just as strong, and look a lot better. Sadly I need that second triple for my set.

    That Deviljho armor looks fucking sweet. Kinda like a spiky Guyver.

    Actually a Guyver armor would be amazing.

    60 seconds. You get it with the Odogaron armour if you wear four pieces.
    I need to work out how to get it via other armour or a charm or summat.

    What are the main differences between alpha and beta armour items? Beta seems better as it has extra decoration slots but why have alpha armour?
