    Is Ibushi only available through the Rampage?
    I need some parts for a decoration.
    Actually, I need a lot of different parts for decorations...
    Just farm it via join requests

    My LBG is fun and all but my damage is definitely down compared to my hammer. Think I'll wait for 3.0 to build another weapon though, is only a few weeks away and hopefully we can get some interesting builds from it (looking at you GS).

    Have you seen this video on the Magna LBG
    https://youtu.be/A-WFJbdOpp0
    He seems to be doing MASSIVE DAMAGE with spread 3 to the face!

    Ha! This is what happened to me in World too. I see vids of shiny builds and end up chasing all of them with my wishlist full of weapons and armour parts. I grind hard and then when I get the mats I can't even remember which build they were for!
    When I did get it right (Safi Aquashot) the build was indeed tremendous.

    I'm running a build from him that focus' on slice as I want those tails!



    I got the build up to AttackLv4 and CritBoostLv3 so pretty darn good.

    However, my Hammer is a beast. In a rampage my big attach does more than a spitting wyvern. (>8k)

    My main issue is that the big damage is slice and that has 60 shots before going back to camp. I thought about swapping crit-boost for ammo saver to get 20% more shots, but lose 40% boost on (crit) damage seems like a poor option. May be better in 3.0

    I've got that Magna LBG build mostly done now. Need two Spare Shot deco to finish it.
    Initial practice against pukei and izuchi is promising. But I need to get used to switching ammo and crafting. I had it down pat in world so I know it will come.

    Started playing world yesterday... itís amazing how nice it looks at 3440x1440, 90fps. The visuals on the switch are so muddy in comparison even when docked.

    Healing horn is OP btw. Still got a bit to farm to get the exact gaijinhunter build but even without the specific decorations itís good fun.

    Just saw a coupe kunai tip videos.

    The first tip was being able to use kunai to cut tails and I'd never considered that at all.

    I wonnder how useful that is in practice (vs taking an LGB with slicing ammo). If you're using hammer/horn, then you probably aren't going to do enough damage to a tail during a hunt for Kunai to do the final cut - you're going to be at the head end of things.

    I agree, though the reason I went slicing lbg is because I hadn't chopped a tail the whole game and I wanted to! Now I can hammer main again and play with the kunai when I get the itch.

    I always use them with sns due to not having to sheave your weapon. Great to continue doing little bits of damage when you can't reach the monster.

    In some ways, our failures last night with Kushala and Teostra are good.
    Shows the game isn't as easy as it can sometimes seem.

    I'm currently working on poison lance to take on Kushala...

    Not yet but i might do.

    i was enjoying the bits of MHS1 i played on my phone, unfortunately it doesnt save state when you exit the app, so on iOS at least you always have to find a save point or risk losing any progress if the app closes in memory.

    Stopped me really getting into it.

    It's the same on the Android version.
    On 3DS you just flip the lid shut and it suspends.

    I will deffo get it on Switch. Need to investigate possible pre-order bonuses.

    Poison Lance worked on Kushala..
    Well, I had two faints plus a lot of help from Magnamalo and Goss. 😊
    Need to focus on the tail though...

    Got the Kushala tail and I now have 3 parts of Kushala armour which gives health regen. Nice and comfy. 😊
    Apex Arzuros is kinda tough to solo. Need to do him again...

    Hunting with randoms is such a mixed bag.

    Sometimes we take down an elder in 5 mins, other times 1 guy carts 3 times in 2 mins, but only after we get close to killing it...

    Rampage randoms are even worse - some cart every attack, some don't use any installations and tap monsters to a slow death and yet... some times a group get together and clear all sub targets mid second wave and it's glorious.
