    OK - I have a lot of elemental glaives and bows. Maybe time to get them out and brush up.

    I used a water glaive against the Nightshade Paolumu, which seemed to be fairly effective. I guess some MR hunts are in order against 'old' monsters in order to get upgrade parts.

    I continue to wish that Capcom developed a parallel phone app, like Bungie did for Destiny..
    I'd love to be able to browse through all my equipment and my item box while offline.

    Been trying a few hunts with the old switch-axe again after picking up the great sword and seeing the numbers. It's great again - problem is, to get a good one, I now need to hunt all monsters in the rathian/rathalos family!

    Trying to upgrade my elemental lances and glaives..

    I'm enjoying this new content. Had I done mega grinding for all the weapons I might have been a bit pissed off..

    Do we rate elemental damage above status effects?
    I'm guessing so..

    I have only managed to make elemental ones so far - but earlier built a poison switch axe to try next.

    I have seen the poison lance do some great damage over time and a paralysis long sword not get many procs but I would say they are all useful here and both are better than a standard raw damage weapon.

    My perceived weakness of status effects is that the monster develops some resistance to sleep and para through the hunt.
    With element damage, I believe they are as weak to it at the end of the hunt as the start.

    Made some great progress over the weekend, still discovering new monsters and have dozens of optionals before I even see the 'endgame'. It's a hefty dlc!

    I am massively behind the curve this time around. A combination of illness/tiredness and a general gaming apathy atm has led me away from putting the time into this i would have liked to.

    Still, i have some time off next week and there are a few days my son is going into nursery so i should get some decent game time in.

    I am still in the 'upgrading weapons with low level MR monster parts' phase.
    Pukei, Anja, Jyura etc..
    Which needed at least one HR hunt!

    I'm not far in yet, just killed the flying ice cat. He slaughtered me first go and I though he was going to be a brick wall but got him second time without even carting.

    Getting the hang on the clutch claw, it's a great addition.

    I will be, I just had a bout of anxiety whilst playing ff14 and it has made me kind of nervous about playing games that require me to be good.

    IB gives you rewards for helping out people doing LR and HR missions. That'll make you feel better about yourself.

    Didn't realise you were on 14. Are you in the EG shell?

    I did consider getting IB but considering how quickly I bailed on MHW it seemed like a bit of a waste.

    The other thing that prevents me from pulling that trigger is I don't think I'd have a clue what the hell was going on after all that time away. Took me long enough to get to grips with it the first time round!

    Only took me a couple of hours to get back in the swing.

    Still have no idea about the melder and various other things but im not that bothered.

    I've only really used the melder to get rare monster parts, like the various gems.
    The stuff to get decorations seems too random to bother with.

    In other news, I got a combined Slinger capacity and attack deco yesterday. Which was nice.

    Managed to get nargacuga first go this morning, it was bit tight on time towards the end as he spent so long enraged and jumping about like a loon. The armour set from it is lovely but no use to me whatsoever :(

    Its armour might be ok for the male character, but it gives my girl HUGE thighs.

    Mine turns my female character into a hunchback :( I really need a decent set of layered armour.

    Or them to add transmog as it's such an obvious thing for the game to have.

    I did the first event quest, where you capture the monkeys in the hot spring. But I couldn't discern what the tickets allow me to craft..
    I guess I could just look it up.. 😊

    Got a MHW:I 2.5m login bonus today, so sounds like it did pretty well.
