drat I really need to get back into this game. The expansion looks rad as hell.

They do a lot really well with the expansion. Some of the fights can feel a bit sloggy. Zipline mounting continues to be my favorite addition.

I made a SLeep Hammer set with the black diablos KO secret + 2 pc Artian set for Critical Status and i can get 2 sleeps + 3 mounts + 5+ KOs per hunt. its out of control. Using it in GL is so much fun since every room has a slide spot where you can just roll around with the spinball attack and get that delicious stun sound a million times.

Yeah lance is good.



Unrelated I had a weird dream where I was hunting in the ruins of an American city with a bunch of other ragtag anti-monster resistance fighters and I had a zorah magdaros hbg.

I was trying to snipe a distracted deviljho when a great jagras and a paolumu shimmied up to the balcony I was on and I ran for my life.



I blame the content of the dream on the dumb joke I made here but for my in-dream cowardice I can only blame myself or God.

Apparently you can do clutch claw wall slam move into a lance user if you're coordinated enough, the shield counts as a wall lol

Wow the critboost skill says it gives 30% critical damage at 1 point, 35 at 2, and 40 at 3 points, so you would think one point investment is best. But your base is actually 25%, each point is +5%. That's not very clear lol

oh that makes sense. from my very casual testing it definitely seems powerful (paired with basically all my expert and weakness exploit decos) but never the 30%+ jump in damage i was expecting

Yeah it's still real strong, and it's also worth noting it doesn't actually do anything for elemental or status attacks, only physical damage

It's so much fun, once i finished base world there wasn't really any reason to just do random stuff since only the same 3 hunts actually offered the chance to drop decos or whatever. But guiding lands is such a cool structure that I just log on and do random crap in there with new weapons, since its fun.

it reminds me of destiny where you'd just kind of randomly wander around the map and every once in a while run into other players and enemies. it'd be cool if in MHW2 you could actually run into a playing SOSing for help out in the middle of nowhere instead of explicitly having to search for them

The verticality of the Guiding Lands is a lot of fun. Jumping down from the first camp straight into the Rotten Vale section is still cool every time.

I'm finally going to buy this. Is there any point buying the expansion straight away or is it a sitch where there's 3000 hours of content before you even touch icebourne stuff

I think just buying the expansion unlocks a few things that will be available from the beginning, such as the clutch claw. So if you're planning on getting it eventually anyway might as well go for it now.

I think the defender set might also be tied to the expansion? Nice set to get you up to the expansion faster if you’re a monster hunter veteran.

You can just do base game for now, theres a fuckton of content and the addition of clutch claw will help keep all the G rank versions of the base game monsters fresh when you buy Iceborne
