    Me, Chris and Alastair do. Although it is, at times, heartbreaking to hear Chris's kids begging that it's their turn on the switch.

    ...

    He has his own - I'm just a big meanie and say he can't spend all day on it. It's just awkward as he asks to play his while I'm sat playing MH.

    On another note, it's not possible to play my digital version of the game together (via local play), I'd have to buy it twice to hunt together.

    And discussions on the cooking of the gammon.
    I hope it turned out ok.

    So the Aliexpress Amiibo cards turned up (after having been stuck in customs for 3 weeks. I'd ordered some previously that were credit card sized, but these ones are smaller than a Switch game-card. Does the job though.

    If anyone else wants a turn with them to get the layered armour, then send me a DM on the discord.

    My palamute is wearing the Magna layered armour. Looks good.

    My palamute has a 3 headed skull armour. Looks devilish.

    Had a good session with THF and Toaster yesterday. Up to HR7 now.

    Have yet to use a second weapon in Rise. I would go GS again but all the builds are nargacuga/tigrex which is the same as my Hammer so until they bring the wyvern ignition back I'll use something else.


    Current frontrunners are LBG and gun lance... Builds look very different to Hammer/GS.

    I've only used ls so far. First go at narwa this morning I cut the tail, took it out with the dragonator then failed it after 28 minutes. So annoying, I surely can't have been too far away

    You were likely very close. Thunder defence really helps here even if your build needs a tweak (or thunder res decos).

    I started with Sword and Shield, then onto Longsword but i was crap at counters. Been using Greatsword the last 40 hours or so (LMAO), and i am really liking it. Also thanks for the guard tip, started using that last week and actually it works brilliantly.

    You're right on the builds tho, every greatsword build i looked up seems to be affinity based, i do have the Dark of Night sword which i'm using, but following the crowd seems a bit dull to me.

    Might see if i can switch over to a non-affinity build that i create myself for a laugh, maybe with some fun stuff like focus, flinch free, guard, minds eye, offensive guard.... dunno.

    Pretty much every weapon's optimal build right now is using the narga weapon with critical eye and weakness exploit unfortunately.

    Thunder Resistance, as Chris says.
    Also, take your time.. Make sure to collect that third wirebug and get up on those platforms.
    Make sure to use the splitting wyvernshot as it does a ton of damage.

    Pre-update, paradise and 269 were recommending the anjanath lbg. I'm working my way up to it...

    Fucking loving this game, Iíve been messing around with gaijin hunters healing horn build, itís pretty much impossible to die with it.

    Iíve not really touched LS since 2.0 update, probably gonna do a bow build next I think.

    Got Narwa second time, better use of the platforms helped, but still got the 10 minute warning and 2 carts.

    Be alert to the times that the platforms are lined up with her big fat belly.
    Get in there and hammer it for MASSIVE DAMAGE!!!!!!1

    @Alastair also, that usually aligns with hitting her head. Always aim for the head, that'll eventually KO her and give you that animation.

    Keep an eye out for the two times in the fight she flees to the center of the arena, if you can spot it coming it's helpful because that's the exact moment the dragonator and wyvernshot come online. Dragonator can hit her from miles away when she's in the center if you see it coming you can do tons of damage with it.

    Defeated Narwa last night with the help of THF and 2 Randoms after 2 failed attempts. Felt good.

    Is Ibushi only available through the Rampage?
    I need some parts for a decoration.
    Actually, I need a lot of different parts for decorations...

    @Alastair Yeah, Rampage only atm. I need some bluespikes for gems. On the plus side, it's only a 6* quest and possible solo.

    I was starting to fiddle with bow and just realised I need to do Arena to get the mighty bow feather. Hmph.

    Chris and I have been working our way through the Arenas. If you do all arena quests using all the weapons, you get an armour piece which lets you carve one extra time.

    Arenas are much tougher than previous games, mainly because you can't cart. Switch skills being in the mix don't help, we were dong the Barioth mission, I brought my usual Hunting horn, took me a couple of minutes to realise it was in "encore" mode rather than performance.
