    @H1ggyLTD Either use low rank investigations (blue, instead of orange star next to the rank number) or, if you don't have any due to over-judicious deletion, (which I am guilty of), farm some tracks for investigations in low rank expeditions, accessed by hitting L1 on the map selection screen.

    Or do low rank Optional Quests.
    :)

    Or low rank SOS quests - I doubt you'll find many though.

    So, SOS quests don't seem to be a great way to do tempered monsters.
    Joined a tempted Kirin hunt, and it was over before I even got to the fight!!

    @Alastair Tempered Kirin tends to be the exception in my experience. Almost noone rolls with high lightning resist, so plenty of one-shots. I always go with full Uragaan and lance and turtle up, but then I'm pretty cowardly.

    I've kind of lost focus with the game slightly.
    Figured I would do some SOS quests to get the trophy, and hopefully get some guild cards as well. SO many failures!! And only two GCs..

    I think I need to go out and gather some tempered footprints to get me some new investigations. Tempered stuff exists for all large monsters, right? Not just elder dragons?

    Yep, almost(?) everything can be tempered. There are 3 tiers of difficulty of monster, elders as the highest, and each tier gives increased chances for better decos/streamstones etc. Tempered elder investigation SOS are usually only open for seconds before they fill up. Best chance of getting streamstones for augmenting weapons, and level 3 decos.

    Tempered G Jagras?
    I figured I'll work my way through some tier 1 tempered first. I found a vid on Youtube suggesting where to look so will try that tonight.

    @Ddanno Saw you online last night.
    I might crash your session if I see you again. If that's OK..?

    @Alastair Sure thing although it might be my girl playing since she's as hooked as I am. I doubt she'd mind teaming up but she hasn't beaten double bagel yet so her tempered menu is a bit sparse.

    Feel free! Personally I've stacks of tempered hunts to put up- playing largely solo means I potter about a lot so a little company might pressure me into using them up

    Just did a quick whizz around Wildspire Waste and Ancient Forest and picked up some tracks.

    GaijenHunter posted a "top 5" switch axe video, and then said "the best one is this KT one I don't have."

    Turns out I do - 794 damage, 450 (hidden) paralysis.

    Consequently, I gave it a go for the first time last night, the thing is mental. It's so mental, if you mount a monster, get to the discharge stage, paralysis is triggered, you stay on and you get another go at discharging.

    I discovered last night that the 'Research all monsters' trophy requires me to research Jho and Kulve as well, v because I didn't get it before they appeared.
    Only Zorah Magdaros doesn't need to be done.

    Bah!

    @Alastair Surely with Kulve being a time limited event then you shouldn't need to get all the research done for her?

    If so that sucks, i managed to get this one done a few nights before she showed up.

    Think I have that one too, will give it a try. I've just been relying on the Axe of Demons so far, no subtlety to it, just whack really hard.

    Also a sign I might have an addiction when Gaijinhunter mentions 2 things I have that a guy who basically plays professionally doesn't, Protective Polish deco being the other. Mighty Bow deco still eludes me though.

    Anyone else still plugging away at Arena quests, and fancy teaming up?
    The monsters don't get more hp for two players, so it should be easier if paired up.
    I could do most evenings, except Mondays, from about 9pm...
    PM me if you prefer.
    (Edit - on PS4)

    @Alastair No idea, I may have been on Netflix with the game suspended at the time.
