    Done the SDF quest a couple of times now..
    Observation 1 - I can't see how you can get back to camp. I couldn't crawl under the rocks and a farcaster was 'X'd out.
    Observation 2 - if you can engage the Odo up on the ledge above the Dragonator then the Jho doesn't get involved and it makes your fight much easier.
    Observation 3 - take time at the start to load the cannon and aim it at the door from which Luna will emerge.
    Observation 4 - use the Dragonator and rocks early against Jho so that they have time to reset for Luna

    Current strategy is to kit up to fight Jho and Odo (although Jho is much easier than the tempered version I have been honing my skills with), then do as much as possible against Luna until a faint lets me switch up armour and weapon.
    Managed to use the rock trap twice against Luna on the last run. And I also tried to hit her with a few dragon pods - I believe these have an elderseal quality...?

    That Deviljho lance is pretty tasty, innit!

    Saw a YouTube video yesterday suggesting a method of farming Behemoth solo!
    Just fight in the first area and aim to break horn and cut tail. Have your palico use Plunder blade...
    Might give it a shot. I'm sure it will be super tough.

    @Alastair I haven't fought Behemoth yet. I'll give you a hand with that later if you're on for it?

    Sorry to disappear - my work laptop was very slowly updating. But after 3 hours stuck at 82% I thought it was probably time to manually cancel.

    That big Kulu quest is a pain because you can't make him drop the rock like with normal ones. I can't remember any tricks. But I'm sure we were at the last stage. It may or may not have been worth taking out the Anja and Barroth just to get them out of the way. Don't know if they would respawn.

    Appreciation Fest announced - looks like Tempered/AT G Jagras confirmed!

    "The Greatest Jagras
    Great Jagras is the most hunted monster of the year. Understandably, it is NOT amused, so it's back for revenge, bigger and badder than ever! Try to make it drop a Glowing Feystone!"
    9* HR 50

    I did the FF14 rath mission if that counts but didnít do the behemoth monster properly.

    Also AT Jagras sounds comical

    I have got right back into this, although last night knocked me back a bit.
    5 lavasioth hunts in RRR with no small crown, then two shit attempts at Thronetaker.
    I realised too late that you need to take out Luna first, before Teo turns up..

    I'm sure I posted that suggestion when the mission first came out - everyone runs to kill Nergi because he's easy, but then the other two just gang-up and make your life hell.

    Mmmm, yeah, that kind of rings a bell.
    Trouble is, after the second fail it was bedtime!
    The quest will be back for the Appreciation Fest, so I can try again then.

    What gamma armour pieces/sets have people forged? I haven't tried any AT monsters yet..

    I'm currently rocking the Fiendish Tower ('Jho) lance with Health Regen augment and fully upgraded 'Gaan armour with Rath Soul Helm and Azure Starlord gloves for some Elemental Bonus.
    Either use Handicraft charm or Ironside for Tempered EDs.

    Appreciation Fest starts tomorrow...!
    Anyone about for the AT Great Jagras quest?

    I also want to take on the double tempered Jho quest, because I believe it will give 2 crowns. I can do the single tempered Jho quest fairly easily, so hoping this will be OK.

    Have about 23 small crowns and 22 large. I believe the target is 28 each...

    I donít get it!

    Iíve made my latest weapon that has a locked element. I had a little read and it says I need to free the element. Iím assuming this is a weapon slot jewel?

    What do I need to stick in it? Is the thingy something I have to make or is it a random drop.

    Yes you need decorations, which only drop as rewards for high rank quests, but mostly from tempereds where you need to be HR50 to start getting the decent decos from tempered elders etc - and even then drops are still up to luck.

    Deco details on the wiki

    You have a couple options depending on your luck with the drops for a hidden-element weapon,

    An Elementless Jewel will up the raw attack

    A Free Elem Jewel will release the element (1 jewel releases 33%, 2 66% and 3 for a 100% - which is why most people hope for an Elementless Jewel)

    Finishing earlier than I thought tonight, so I'll be on, but I'll be caning through the daily bounties first. AT Jagras can wait.

    The Appreciation Fest is great!
    However, AT Jagras is like a drug - I want to keep doing it in the hope of getting lots of lovely gems (attack gem I neeeeeeed you..)
    But, I also want to do lots of other things - crown hunting, AT elders, daily bounties...

    Managed one Attack and one Special Ammo Boost deco out of it, everything else has been dross so far. Built a nice HBG/Spread 3 setup to pulverise it in 4mins, but it's a one-hit risky set-up.

    Like you, I'd be better off farming Elders for Gleaming SS, but I can't be bothered, so I'm waiting to see what the least farmed monster will be: Lavasioth or B.Diablos, with rumors of streamstones as rewards in a flipped quest.

    I read some nasty rumours yesterday that the Jho crowns won't count towards the Crown Master trophies, and that I need to get the crowns from all the *original* monsters (bar ZM and XJ of course).

    Equally, I read somewhere a while ago, that it was 28 crowns for each trophy, so if you get Jho and Lunastra, you could miss two other monsters.

    Annoying that Capcom don't really make it clear. Or, if they do, I don't know where.
    Maybe no one else cares.... :)
