    I have the Kirin fight down to about 15 min, sometimes under 10. Just getting annoyed when what seems to me to be a clear 'large' one doesn't warrant the crown.

    Black Diablos is an OK fight, little more complex that normal Diablos.
    What's annoying me about the Blos trophy is putting the effort of clearing the tiny Kulu and tiny Barroth from Wildspire Bolero in order to get the normal sized Blos to spawn...

    I might be starting to sound a bit 'entitled' but Capcom really seem to have done a number on the players with these two trophies. They aren't a measure of skill or progression. :(

    Best going for investigations then, looking for "one faint/15 min/at least one gold reward" as the most likely to spawn crown monsters.

    And crowns have always been the same throughout the existence of guild cards (MHF2 ?) being pure RNG.

    Yeah, I am veering towards the Investigations route.
    Focusing on at least one Gold and Silver and 3 attempts. If I can get a one faint/shorter time so much the better.
    I guess I need to mix it up to hopefully be less bored.
    I've been having a go with the Hunting Horn and fancy a go with LBG as well...

    I've never tried any of the AT elder dragons. Guess I could give them a try too. I'm kind of just hanging on to get the Platinum. Otherwise I would be playing something else until Iceborne...

    Yeah, haven't been on in a while myself, couldn't find any team to deal with Ancient Leshen, even after the nerf, and with 20+ Gold Tickets even the weeklies are unappealing at the mo.

    Break time for now, see you in winter lol.

    Iím getting into this, since itís all my daughter wants to play with me lately. With the exception of Eve Online, itís the most frustratingly opaque game I think Iíve ever played- so many mechanisms you could never learn about unless you really explore (and google).
    Pleasingly deep though. Proud dad moment watching her single handidly hunt and take down the balloon/bat thing in the Coral Highlands with an Insect Glave last night.

    Opaque is basically what made these games popular (and limited their popularity in the West). It was all about experimenting and finding what works over hundreds of hours of hunts.

    I agree that a lot of the subtlety is hidden away and hard to understand. But with the ease of access that Google/YouTube gives you, that information isn't too far away.
    I'm 400+ hours in and still learning some of the best combos for armour and gems.

    If you want to team up anytime user mothercruncher let me know..

    @y2rich
    Thatís all god, but, having never played a Monster a hunter game before, I was >this< close to just not bothering. It canít be too much to ask to keep the depth but present it better- the menus/interface are atrocious for example.

    Thanks Alistair 👍

    This is the most accessible one so far...!!!

    They've cut out/made easier several parts.
    e.g. heading back to the camp mid-hunt to change armour, get more consumables etc is new.
    The combinations of armour pieces to get active skills works much better now

    I'm not saying it's perfect, but I don't recommend going back to try older versions!! :)

    @mothercruncher Seeing as there were a bunch of fears from fans of the series saying they were scared this was a bit too dumbed down then *shrug*

    They obviously found the balance given the sheer number of copies sold and the still active playerbase well over a year after release.

    It's also Capcom who have never been known for their intuitive tutorials/UI/mechanics.

    It's main strength as a series has always been the fact it's never held your hand and you've had to work it all out yourself through trial and error, experimentation and effort. One of the few series to not spoon feed it's players to end game. Also helps to realise that until you hit HR30 you're essentially still in the tutorial.

    Oh, and the Scoutflies are new too.
    And given the size of the maps, they are welcome imo.

    Seeing this on Base for £14. Wondering whether or not to add it to the pile of shame. Does seem like a lot of game for that price.

    It can take a bit of effort to get into, but I think this is one of the best games I've ever played.

    Ta. I feel I have got little to lose at that price.

    You get a huge amount of content for that. No brainer really. It does require a lot of time to appreciate it all but worth it imo.

    Looks like the Spring Blossom Fest is coming back on Apr 26 - May 02.

    If you're newer to the game, this is basically a time to fill your boots! LOADS of event quests are available, usually with bonus rewards of some sort - weapons, armour, layered armour, guaranteed crowns, higher chance of crowns for most non-elder dragons...
    I think the list of event quests shoots up to cover about 5 pages!

    I am, of course, still trying in vain to get gold crowns... but might take some time out to faint in front of some AT elder dragons!

    Ace. How do you access whatís on offer, is it a subset of whatís on offer in the Post A Quest window?

    When you post a quest, look under 'Event Quests'

    Also, you need to head up to the Gathering Hub to get the full taste of it...

    If you want to partner up for some quests, I'll be more than happy

    Except, like all previous AT monsters, it'll be a helluva lot easier just to solo it.

    New stuff with Iceborn seems great, wondering if there'll be more than one wintry area - maybe even another Kulve/Magdaros style fight in the pipeline.

    I would expect a squad of 4 to get on OK. It's when there are only 2 of you but the monster is still on 4x health that the problems start...?

    Think the EG clan can take a few down together! (Bar the occasional feint)

    You'd be surprised. Remember, a 4-player quest will only take 10 mins tops, so as long as you bed in for the long haul, it's a lot easier relying on yourself for 30mins than guys fainting left and right and dying at the first sign of trouble.

    I still haven't bothered with Ancient Leshen (because you need 4 for the roots/ohk aoe), still no joy. And I just couldn't be arsed with AT Xeno.
