    @Alastair the trick is not to guard him face on. Turn a bit to the side and you'll be pushed out of the beam.

    Reading the posts since the release of the DLC, i think i'm leaning towards not needing to play it.

    Whilst i'd enjoy wandering around the new area, and seeing the story bits, i don't have much appetite for fighting a double golden triple tempered bronze Diablos.


    I know that's kind of the point of the series end game, but it sounds too much like work.

    I do worry that further DLCs might leave me wishing i'd persevered.


    I just want to beat standard Xeno and call it a day.

    The better gear makes beating standard Xeno a doddle.
    Of course, you have to beat him before you can access it.

    I've enjoyed Iceborne..
    Pretty much finished the story part I think - seen the credits. But there's more to follow because there's a ton of monsters still to fight...

    Potentially it is time to dust off my bow game and take on Kirin...

    Forgot about my own highs and lows on the endgame boss. Struggled to find randoms who knew what to do, and when I finally landed in a good quest (everyone smartly weakening 'their' part, area heals etc) it was great.

    Then I lost connection and got dumped solo during the third phase. Panic, and spent a few minutes dodging to heal and sharpen, psyching up for the last push.

    Ran up, fired my clutch claw to weaken, and it drops deap from the 1hp hit of the claw. Most anticlimactic ending ever. Great end/kill screenshot though.

    Going to have to try the old Elders at MR (forgot they'd pop up in numbers in the investigations) and the arena for the coins, but yeah, still not quite feeling the need to grind excessively.

    Have you played online with any of the EG crew?

    I'm terrible at joining the squad session, but had a good introduction to the Guiding Lands with Osso last night.
    Still so much work to do...!!

    Guiding Lands is frustrating so far. I'm a tad disappointed that Capcom did so much good work to demystify the base game, but this is opaque as hell

    Dire Miralis (dunno), Alatreon (rings a bell) and the Fatalis trio (crimson, white, black).

    The Black Dragons, and conveniently there's this: https://www.reddit.com/r/MonsterHunter/comments/dpq3pq/for_hunters_of_the_new_world_the_black_dragons/

    Peeps are presuming this video with an animated Fatalis/supposed new roar is a tease towards a new siege - think Zorah Magdaros in his standing up phase. Fatalis is certainly a fave for some due to it's "sick armour" (read:flamboyantly edgelord), but it'll be another bore fest of cannon loading and cluster HBGs in all honestly.

    I'd rather have the oddities of Khezu and Chameleos return.

    So many cool monsters they can draw on for the next game that they haven't been made the shell for. Guess that's why Rajang was a surprise, the only beast in world and it's the top dog, no point putting in the bear/rabbit/congala now.

    Oh god, I forgot about the bear/rabbit monstrosities.

    Conga/Blango were just annoying, worse than voden with their shit flinging antics.

    Watched a video the other day around farming gems and tenderplates from Shara Ishvalda.
    Smash her head constantly to get the double break, then carve the scalp.
    Managed to get the second break using a hammer, then made the mistake of switching to lance and then had third faint..
    Luckily I'd carved the scalp..

    I should be about.

    New monster announcement soon, should land in December. Lots of people hoping for Gore Magala, but iirc Capcom hinted it would be another siege

    Another new one was teased in a JP stream, both landing in December.

    So, the new Safi'Jiva is like a new siege? Like the MR Kulve Taroth?

    Seen a few bits on Twitter about 'Awakened Weapons' which sounds cool.

    We need to get the band back together...

    Yep. There's only a repel style quest available at the moment, the siege doesn't seem to have gone live with the Friday rotation. I do hope it's not a random weapon drop grindfest again, I bounced off that hard and didn't play for almost a year.

    I saw some tweets from Arrekz saying that you are guaranteed to get at least one weapon of the type you are using. They all have the same base stats, and then you get random element/status effect..

    There's also something about adding specific skills to the weapons, so you could add the Vaal health regen skill and then not need to wear Vaal armour. And I think you can add more than one skill...

    So, in other words, you can become SUPER POWERED!! Ready to fight 'Tempered Raging Badass Monster'

    My current progress is MR 68, so I believe I will soon unlock new stuff/monsters.
    Still not fought Rajang.
    I have one zone in the GL up to level 5 and am seeing tempered low level monsters. I have augmented my Garuga trousers.

    If memory serves there is a quest at 69MR to unlock GL cap to level 6 then 99 for max. I should be around a fair bit over the weekend farming Gold Rath if you want to team up for anything - think you're on my friend list already.

    Yup.
    I'm out tonight, but Saturday evening could work.

    I did a few hunts with that Black Eagle CB - not used CB before but I quite liked it. I don't really know the move set properly though.

    So, I totally failed to get online over the weekend.
    I did do a bit in the Guiding Lands and felt like I'd hit an unexpected wall.
    Taking on tempered Rathalos and then Tempered F Anja.
    Both times I carted way too often and the monsters buggered off before I could finish them. How embarrassing.
    In my defence - Fortify was not triggering after the faints. Yet I know it works in GL because I've had it proc before. Weird.
