It's not really comparable to what mh4u did, (there's overall much less randomness to what stats the weapon has) but yeah it's never gonna be critical for anything either.

You can also make her entire armor set after just a few sessions of breaking her outer coating and the casing on her horns, solo even if you'd prefer. It takes a lot of materials, but she drops so much that it doesn't take significantly longer than farming any other monster.

Nov 8th 2018 at 9:03:59 AM

well.

i beat her.

thanks for some nice randos who joined my session. still took about 3 hours and honestly i'd have prefered if the rewards had included more parts...less weapons i wont use :I

but its a cool fight

but im so tired

Yeah, got in one session where I completed the siege, but didn't manage to kill her. Gonna try another tonight and see how far I can get. After that it's Tsuchinoko hunting time.

Nov 8th 2018 at 11:44:39 AM

well. i have enough to make a full set except...

glimstone.

i dont think ive gotten any yet. bleh


well i got one, now i just need another. also made the first layered armor set, which looks pretty nice. i also finally got an earplug charm

cant say i was happy to discover its a 3-notch charm that only gives you one level in earplug, but i guess im used to being disappointed by world when it comes to this.

All decorations give you only a point in their respective skill; put it in the Bazel waist since that has two points of Earplugs.

And for the record, Kulve is way, way more manageable with a full lobby; generally it takes me only about two runs to get her horns broken.

MOTHERFUCK! The next arch tempered monster is Xenojiva. Of course it is, because I want Nergigante Y armor.

KT is one of my favorite farms so long as I join a hub with 12+ people specifically targetting her.

I donít get Paul Anderson. But he makes money so itís no wonder Capcom keeps hiring him.

Ok so I was prepared to bash this film like the rest of you but according to Super Best Friends, the premise is the monsters attack the real world, military actually fails, protagonist realizes that making weapons from the hides of the monsters are way more effective, and they eventually become hunters. Which sounds waaaaay better than what I heard beforehand

They were joking about what they figured the plot would be

Well the main lead is outfitted with a slinger and stuff, so there's going to be hunters *eventually* I suppose.

The worst possible scenario is like transformers or Godzilla 2014 where there's too little monster and too much military

So Arch Tempered Xeno'jiva's a trip, and you can fight it now on PS 4 and Xbone.

I spent three hours getting nowhere against it. It's not even bullshit, it's just boring.

Yeah fuck whoever designed that arch tempered Xeno Jiva. Fight is bullcrap; seems like he can hit you with a shockwave anywhere. Armor sucks too.

I already hate normal xeno just because 3/4 of the fight is just trying to get to a place I can hit him

Well, now that's like 9/10s of the fight.

I find the shockwaves easy to avoid, it's just the times that I mess up or my positioning wasn't right, then they fuck you up. And, as has been hinted at, it has almost zero downtime. I've seen it do its radial shockwave thing two or three times in a row, and even though I think it doesn't technically move all that fast or all that much, its movements are so huge that it simply turning around can put targets out of your reach.

I wonder if this is my main design problem with this battle; in a game like this, enemies/encounters should be designed such that any strategy is viable (though yeah, some will still be more effective than others), but it seems like the only way to go here is ranged, and I haven't been focusing on ranged weapons.

Lunastra has arrive on PC!

Her fight is aggressively bad, and I don't like it.

Heh, it's pretty cool. I like that she's ltierally designed to make you reconsider the flashpod habits you picked with the teostra. Cancelling the supernova with a pod ? HOW CUTE.

Got the temporal mantle. Not interested by much else of the monster so that's that out of the way.

Nov 23rd 2018 at 9:43:48 AM

I've only seen Lunastra nova once.

I don't think it's a very fair attack.

I don't think it's any more unfair than the supernova of the teostra.

Either you've seen it coming and you have a plan to deal with it and it's a non issue, either he caught you when you can't react to it and you may as well be dead if you don't have fire mantle on. Both applies to the teo and the luna, and I think that if you go big brain enough the fact that you can bait the supernova contrarily to the teostra benefits you pretty nicely.

Nov 25th 2018 at 5:38:18 AM

ouch.

wasnt expecting lunastra to be that much of a difficulty jump from teostra.

i was sorely punished for every little opening i would normally exploit with teostra.

also it seems like lunastra has a significant increase in charge speed for all of its attacks, i was barely able to react to most of it. even the nova tends to get me in its first blast.


actually, how do you get the tempered mantle? i dont think ive unlocked the quest for it yet.

Edited by Tarsen on Nov 25th 2018 at 5:39:10 AM

[up]If I remember correctly you get it after beating Lunastra's quest line.

If you think Lunastra's bad wait till you see her AT version; only the first 3 (maybe even only the first, can't remember if they reduced it further from regular tempered) flash pods you use will function; she roars immediately before using supernova; there's an added wind pressure when she lands during supernova timed so it hits just when you recover from the roar and stun locks you long enough to be unable to dodge the nova itself; and to top it off as an arch tempered monster she has double her normal health and attack meaning that her novas are one shot kills.

The level of bullshit they put into that fight finally got me to stop bothering to do the AT monsters.

tbh i cant really be bothered to do the basic tempered monster quests because they seem pretty much the exact same fight but with higher damage values and the only rewards of note are more often than not useless decorations intended to be used as fodder for that worthless wyverian ritual, so i doubt i'll ever have to suffer an arch tempered quest.
