    That Double Rajang quest is gonna be the death of me...

    And actually Savage Jho is tougher than I was expecting...

    I can hop on tomorrow if you'd like a hand? Although my chief tactic was getting them to beat the tar out of each other whilst I ran around screaming in terror

    I'm going away to mum's for a few days. Back on 4th..

    Winter Fest will be nearly over by then. But there will be a Spring Fest I am sure.

    I've got a few decent weapons from Safi, next thing will be to further grind GL to get augmentation bits.
    And perhaps to find all those treasures and take stupid surveyor pictures.

    Iceborn PC out in a couple of days... could draw me back into this but... looks expensive. Worth it?

    If you finished the base game it's worth it and then some. If you bounced off at, say, Anjanath then probably not

    @Ddanno I finished the main campaign and did a bit of post-game, then lost interest when I could see the endgame grind looming before me.

    It's a game of grinding...
    But I love it.

    You mean you liked it without even reading it ?!

    Ground out Savage Jho Event quest for the new armour/Aloy bow upgrade which unlocked the 30 variant monster trophy, that took me to MR99 and the Ruiner Nergigante quest to unlock MR100+.

    He got GL spanked. Far, far too easy.

    The Lynian Photo stuff is on the to-do list (there's actually a guide on EG somewhere) along with the rare creatures, treasure hunts etc etc. Still have 80% of the optional quests awaiting completion, and then I believe there's a new 4 Tempered Elder hunt like the Sapphire Star's Guidance which'll unlock.....something I'm sure, and seems to be the last quest available.

    Been a tad distracted by the War Thunder event and free tanks......

    Anniversary starts up on the 24th Jan too. More events, more vouchers, maybe new monsters ?!

    @Rogueywon I think you'll find it worth the money, the campaign is great. You'll nope even harder at this endgame, however.

    Actually, I'd rather get the Aloy Savage Jho quest done.
    Anyone about on Saturday night or Sunday to team up?
    S Jho deals some badass tick damage. Dragon proof mantle didn't really seem to help..
    Any thoughts?

    I used dragon proof gems and that seems to do the trick, eat for elemental and you'll get over 20, the basic dragon stuff doesn't impact. What does still get you is the lingering black cloud - like the untreatable miasma from val hazzak, you can't gem yourself away from it and it kills you real quick - so you just have to stand well back at that point.

    I found SJ far more manageable than his previous iteration - last version I could only do with lance, this one I can do well with IG.

    There's new quests at 150, 175 and 200, plus another quest for completing all the optional quests.

    175 is Dora+ValKilmer. I can't get anyone to do it with me because Dora is such a bitch.

    I'm puzzled at the tick damage comment regarding Sav Jho. It does nowt but tickle me (1hp/sec perhaps). Wondering what I have skill-wise, as I'm sure my armour loadout has -3 Drg Res.....

    Immunity Mantle and Health Booster are the go-to otherwise.

    I think I was using dragonproof mantle rather than immunity.

    Sod it, bought Iceborne. I'm off work the week after next, so can get stuck into it then.

    Does that final Aloy quest need multiple runs to get enough parts/tickets?

    Aye, I know what it is. Just surprised it was doing as much damage as Alastair said.

    Looking at my loadout, Val Haz Super Recovery with Recov Up and Recov Spd must be tanking a lot of the damage.

    Immunity mantle just stops the dragonblight (not sure about Def Down, adamant seeds otherwise). Lasts longer than the upgraded Dragon mantle see.....

    Playing on PS4, gotten to the point of hunting for Ebony Odaogaron. At this point I think Brachydios is actively the worst monster to fight for me. Jumps around so much and never stops attacking so I can never get a good succession of hits in to wear it down and that stupid fucking blast status effect is the death of me every time. Got the best armor I have right now too, but might need to look into getting the best possible blast resistance before retrying that mission again otherwise I'm not gonna be able to upgrade the harvest box. Any tips

    Still though, anytime I play the game just sinks it's hooks into me. Always something new to do and aim for. Incredible game.

    Are we buddies on PS4?
    Because I will happily help you out. And I'm sure the other regular players will too.
    Gem up for blast resist if you can, and eat for elemental resistance.

    You can evade to remove blast condition, so stick an evade extender on and use that to move around after him, and you'll be self cleaning.

    I'm going to guess that the Ruiner Nerg quest is way tougher than the one I faced just before Shara Ishvalda..?
    It's coming up on the horizon.

    Ruiner Nerg is a good fight, just not as good as regular Nerg.

    I liked the fight against Ruiner the first time. Just assuming the next one will be well beefed up..
