    As I posted above, absolutely spanked. The variant species just don't have enough of a new repertoire to feel challenging.

    I had a go with LBG for the first time over the weekend - tried out the Adept Stormslinger with the Dreamweaver(?) armour. I figured they must go together as they're both from HZD.

    Seemed quite fun on a Barroth hunt. Need to discern the subtleties of decent LBG play...

    My first encounter with Rajang didnít go too well :)

    Think I may need to upgrade my gear a little.

    Does anyone know the requirements to start the new siege encounter?

    Need to complete the Stygian Zinogre stuff first, it's revealed in the cutscene after defeating that. Talk to the Seeker et al in the 'command' tent in Seliana.

    After that, do the recon once, and it should be available. Need a minimum MR of 24 and remember it can only be selected in the Gathering Hub.

    @oldschoolsoviet Cheers dude, does Stygian Zinogre unlock after Rajang?

    I got totally spanked using lance. A bit of research on reddit suggested something quicker like SnS or Dual Blades would be better, and to focus on the tail end.
    I made an ice SnS and managed to get through it. It was tough though..Use Fortify, and don't be afraid to run away to heal and catch your breath.

    Good luck!

    Might have to try the sweaty Zinogre HBG tank against Rajang lol.

    And trying to build up those silver/gold deco tickets. Surely if I spam meld them after the event finishes I might finally get a Capacity gem.....

    I've not put any of this into practice, but it all seems like good advice on dodging Rajang attacks.

    I'm still enjoying LBG. And in fact, I'm wondering about using it for the Barioth in 50 Shades of White.
    I'd forgotten how much he jumps around. Seems like a ranged weapon might be a better option.

    I ended up with 3 or 4 of them from the Xmas event. Still no Guard up though because desire sensor. I should probably jump on and do the Steamworks each day while this is on.

    You get a gold ticket each day you use the steamworks?

    I use the Safi Aquashot against Barioth in that mission, very easy to use and in multiplayer he griefs everyone else whilst I'm constantly firing sticky ammo 3 at it (until I run out)

    Did during the Xmas festival, so if the gold tickets/weekly bounty resets are daily are back for the appreciation fest I'd guess it's the same, but I haven't been on since it started

    Yes, I thing that's the standard overdrive bonus during the event.

    Safi Aquashot is what I will be grinding the siege for...
    Arekkz did an interesting vid about powering it up to use in the siege for breaking parts.

    Yep, you have to get into Overdrive. I had a quick go on steamworks but didn't have enough fuel to get far and got no gold ticket.

    Had a go on the Barioth event with the basic Zinogre HBG - *never* used HBG before...

    Mmm, took me ages - I clearly need some practice.
    I'm actually wondering how many tickets I really need from that event - are any of the Guild Weapons really that amazing?

    I've lost focus again by chasing LBG and HBG builds at the same time...
    Need to get back to the basics of doing the daily bounties first.

    Half an hour gathering in the guiding lands will get you enough fuel for a week. Maps online will help if you haven't done much of that yet

    Yeah, I usually do a bit of gathering. Just haven't been into the GL for a few days, and I did a mega 'elastic band on R2' session in the steamworks at the weekend.

    I am nearly at MR 99 so looking forward to Ruiner Nerg. Then to hopefully gets mats to add Health Augment to my Safi weapons.

    The new guild weapons are good, just below fully awakened Safi tier but the look really good and fashion adds +10. So buy the guild weapons for the ones you use but can't afford to fully awaken in Safi mode.

    Re: Zingore HBG - you are using spread 3 ammo? If you're properly kitted out it should be doing 5x23 points per trigger pull against weak parts, and the aim is have enough gems so that you can do 7-8 shots before having to reload. Its not super, super fast, but its safe. Mind you, it comes as a shock when you find you do still have to evade from time to time with it.

    I took every ammo type and just shot off with no plan..
    One plan could be to have a couple of traps to keep it in place for some wyvern blast and/or repeated spread 3 action.
    Plus also remembering to take bits to craft more ammo.
    :)

    I will try it with Adept Stormslinger next..

    Remember that this wasn't the fully upgraded Zinogre HBG... I'm two levels below max for now.

    Yeah, only the final Loyal Thunder works for that build tbh. It's the crazy stability/shield that nullifys 99% of chip damage sources with Spread 3 that makes it worthwhile.

    And yes, the Royal weapons are worth the struggle (needing 50 Shades and Arena coins). Hell, it's more fun than the Safi repetition, which'll be AT later anyway. Made the GS today along with an attack build and oh my.....catastrophic damage output.

    Managed to get Rajang, he wasnít too bad with hammer tbh. Switch Axe was a nightmare, moves too fast for it.

    He got GL spanked. Far, far too easy.

    Yeah, did it last night. One faint but never really felt in peril.

    And now you can enjoy the grind to Gold & Silver at MR125...... They're the first proper challenge.

    With Japanese/Korean players in the early afternoon it's easy, but I've yet to finish it in the evening with the Western randoms. So many faints......and I need those Reasearch+ tickets dammit. :(

    I read yesterday that two shots of brightmoss will bring down any non-elder flying monster, so stack up before going at goldy and silver.

    Silver Rath Lance and Gunlance. Had the silver mats, needed the Azure for the upgrade before the final one.

    Just hit HR150. Time for Tempered Kirin/Nami ! Think it'll be more straightforward than the wyverns, hopefully.....
