    Anyone anyone managed to get a wex 2 charm yet? Been grinding for hours and still no luck.

    Hoping the April update will bring a new wave of level 3 decorations - the current level 3 options are pretty lame.

    Nope, got a 2partbreaker with a 2 slot which is nice for my hammer but that's the only decent one out of over 200.

    Would like them to release a handicraft deco in 2.0.

    I chanced on Earplugs 3 with L3 (Earplugs deco, ofc) and L1 slots. I like that it turns roars into damage openings, which offsets the lower attack.

    Rough rule of thumb:
    If the hunt is taking you longer than half an hour then you possibly are under powered.
    If you're fainting twice you possibly need to upgrade your armour (or look at your tactics and remember to heal!)

    Made it to HR5, thereís a lot of stuff outside the battles that I donít understand now, talismans, slots, decorations etcÖ

    Need to read up a bit.
    Armour pieces come with skills.. Some for defense, some for attack, some for bowgun, some for bladed weapons....etc
    Better armour also has slots for gems. You need to craft those gems and then set them to one of the armour pieces your wearing to get the skill benefit.
    Talismans are separate pieces of equipment that also have skills and slots. The talisman system in rise is different from world and seems a bit more reliant on random numbers...

    Good combinations of skills can make a massive difference to your hunt. E.g. I have the nargacuga set which has Evade Extender. I can roll about twice as far into and out of combat.

    I'm not great at min-maxing myself, often use a guide if u want to do that.

    In this I'm just rocking hammer skills so have max slugger, partbreaker, marathon runner and focus. I then top it up with attack and element as I like using my fire or thunder hammer. Hunts take 10-20 depending on the monster.

    I could minmax and get better skills but this is a fun build.
    The end game is part farming for decos and melding pot materials.

    There's really no right and wrong, as long as you're not rocking bowgun skills and wielding a melee weapon!
    Loads of good YouTube videos on the subject. But don't get disheartened that the vast majority will be based on endgame materials.
    The better ones will offer budget alternatives.

    @chrisno21 Iíve got a decent slugger 2 with my hammer build, got a quick sheath 2 with lvl 2 slot for my LS.

    Apparently thereís a patch coming to sort out the table system, handicraft decoration would be sweet.

    Have now finished all hub and village quests, looking forward to the update on the 27th for some new content, or at least a timeline for new content.

    Think details of the patch get spilled on Tuesday. Two monsters announced but more are expected, HR cap being removed/raised and obvously new weapons+armour. I just hope they don't go all in on rampages, they're awful solo and dull in MP imo

    I'm doing some in mp just to get tickets for the melding pot, but they are not great.

    Gaijinhunter reckons we are getting one more apex which only appear in rampages so I expect they are here to stay.

    Yeah apex monsters in normal hunts are what we need, perhaps some apex armour sets too?

    Iíd like layered armour system for endgame too.

    Apex hunts could be good fun, the new moves are certainly interesting even in rampage.

    What are our feelings on elemental vs raw damage?
    I notice that Magnamolo is weak to water, so I've made the Almudron LS. But, I wonder if the lower raw attack value will mean it wasn't worth it.

    I found Lance too slow for rajang. Only real success was with sticky lbg.

    @Alastair

    Cheers, been following some of the build guides on this site for starters https://game8.co/games/Monster-Hunter-Rise/archives/325113

    Up to HR6 now, altho its definitely getting more difficult for me now. Decided to try a new weapon - greatsword - for a laugh, its fun hitting 400+ damage altho my ability to land those hits is very low. I wasn't really able to use the counters effectively with the longsword.

    Still addicted to this think i'm up to about 62 hours now!

    HR unlocked - HR goes up one level, wtf?

    Tried the new capture rajang. Failed because another player died 3 times, but Bazelguese turned up!

    I saw a LS guide from Arekkz saying the Narga LS was best (pre-update) so now I am in convoluted effort to gather Narg parts more effectively. Just made Kadachi lance in the hope it will take the black cat down quicker.

    Also, I travelled into London today and very much enjoyed doing a Kadachi hunt on the tube.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for a Switch case?
