I really want Apex hunts that are separate from Rampages. The rampages are a good time but the apex battles are super tight and deserve a better spotlight

Definitely. The tension from fighting an apex monster kinda disappears when the counter signal starts and all of a sudden youíre doing shitloads of damage

gunlance and hunting horn today. absolutely jonesing for new monsters to fight

yeah I'm finding it hard to motivate myself to push my lance gear further because I can already kill everything fairly easy. So I'm going thru the switch skill unlocking quests, with the appropraite weapons ofc

I keep wondering whether to put the game away for a while and play it again and get in really deep when the PC version + inevitable high rank expansio comes out next year. Endgame is kind of empty at the moment, suspect World was probably like this pre Iceborne

World had more of an endgame than the current state of Rise bc Rise won't be finished until may. I wonder how things are gonna change in the updates

the world endgame was grinding for 0.01% drop rate decorations which was terrible. it's okay for a game to run out of content after 100 hours

If it makes me unhappy, it is not

I know more content is coming and post IB world did it really well imo but I'm a little concerned that MH might be tending towards the "live game" or "games as a service" model or whatever you call it. I trust them so far but yeah

Making a real effort to try out longsword for the first time in 4 games. it's a little disgusting how you can just trash a monster once you have a handle on the counter timings and warm up to monster movesets. over the course of an afternoon yesterday using LS to get parts for the narga weapon, sheath and grinder jewels, etc. I went from ~15 min kill times to 5-7. the thing feels as safe as a lance but you can just put out a ton more damage in the same time frame. sicko mode

Iíve only got a few more weapons to go through the switch skill quests for and long sword is one of the last and the only weapon Iíve never tried. Had a blast with lance counters, so maybe Iíve been missing out all this time.

It took me forever to get an orb and they went straight into the LBG

I have sets for like 8 weapons right now and it's my life goal to not have them all be Narcaguga sets

Atlas Hammer (Bone tree) - Bludgeoning 3
Conqueress Switch Axe (Ore tree) - Exhaust, Slugger and Stamina Thief
Tigrex Greatsword
Ice Longsword, I think from Goss Harag?
Fire Dual Blades I think from Aknosom
Mag LBG - Artillery 3 + stickies
Pukei Pukei HBG
Canyne Gunlance (Buddy ticket gimmick lance, that is super good)

I still wanna try Insect Glaive, Sword and Shield, and Bow. No interest in HH, Charge Blade and Lance.


I love Hammer and Gunlance, LBG is really fun, Greatsword is very satisfying when you do well but I feel like it is so hard to do well still, Switch Axe is sometimes really fun and sometimes feels like monsters are just designed to destroy you

I can live with Teo but kushala is a bit disappointing. I'm hoping that maybe they are more fun to fight in Rise
