    Mind and log in today, for a Mind's Eye decoration (prevents deflected attacks/ranged boost), part of rewards for USA championship. Don't know how long it's active.

    Quite like getting armour set skills for free as a 2 slot deco. :)

    I really fucking hate Velkhana. Or rather, I hate myself for not 'gitting gud' against Velkhana.

    Finally got the Black Diablos mini crown.
    Never need to fight one again!
    And the mini crown master trophy from base game.
    Just need 3 large (Nerg, Kushala and Vaal) for the platinum......

    Which will entail grinding HR investigations...

    yeah, but nergi is as fast to kill with Master gear in HR as anything. It's only Kushala that's a drag.

    It's the thought of Kushala that puts me off the whole thing.
    Wondering about trying him with the sticky LBG..

    These new crown quests are a bit annoying with the monsters from the base game that were in their own crown quests...
    The new Coral Highlands one has paolumu and legiana. 😞

    Can't you ignore them and just "return from quest" with the monsters you need to kill? I know that if the first one you had to kill one of the initial 3 to get the rest to spawn in.

    Yes, of course.
    But it means I need to kill one of the first three in order to get the Ebony Odo and then the Zinogre to spawn, because there are only 3 monsters on the map at once.
    Once I have the Coral Pukeu Pukei crowns (I don't at the moment, but it will come) it just becomes a bit of a hassle.

    Just having a little moan really.

    Quite tempted to get the base game on pc. It's £12.99 @cdkeys.

    It's still a really good game. I've still yet to beat the base game so working on beating the story then getting the iceborne expansion when I am ready. Good thing I'd just got the rarest armor set which makes it turn into easy mode to help speed up the story.

    Shara Ishvalda?

    Or Xenojiiva?

    (I'm not on XBox, so I guess it doesn't really matter)

    Currently grinding the tempered Ruiner Nerg quest to get "Super Spiritvein Gems" to augment my armour.

    Not surprisingly, it's getting quicker each time as I go into the quest with higher defence than the previous time.
    It also helped once I upgraded a Safi Dragon lance to have Masters Touch, lots of attack and a bit of defence.

    Hmmm, from memory I went in with Jho lance, augmented for health regen. Plus armour with Vaal Hazak health regen, and then some other skills which I don't recall. Bulwark charm for Guard Up
    Eat for element resistance
    Erm, can't remember any other tips...

    I learned from masters like brokenkey, osso, chrisno21 and John (I'm not sure what his EG user name is)

    There is a school of thought that favours solo runs - you have responsibility for all three carts and don't need to worry about n00bs carting..

    Group/pairing up play is way more fun though. I am guilty of doing too much solo play imo.

    Nice. That last negi mission in the weird arena was very productive.

    Yeah, I ran through it a few times to get my main armour pieces augmented.
    Could probably do with going through it a few more times so I have some spares.
    Was getting through it in about 25 min with a Safi dragon lance. No doubt I could be doing it quicker if I was l33t...

    I finally managed to get a tempered Namielle to turn up in GL so I got 36 of those tempered bits for augmenting. Then I discover that I actually need loads more of the Zinogre bits!

    Of course. I've now discovered there's a second level to health augment that requires Silver 'Los parts from GL... I've not had Silver 'Los turn up in GL. :(

    Oh, and I managed to take down only my second Rajang the other day.
