Vaal is the only one who gets to roflstomp Muscle Puppy, sadly.

Well, according to the turf war, at least; Odo is fast enough to put up a decent fight against Vaal if they stick around in the same area afterwards.

Where is the online community at these days? Just hit High Rank on PS 4 World and I was trying to get into SOS alerts to farm Zorah Magdaros since apparently that was a method that worked once. Is PC where it's at?

Probably should be working.

Wait for Iceborne in 3 days, they'll come back for it.

Huh, so Glavenus vs. Diablos wasn't as one-sided as I originally thought:

Sep 8th 2019 at 7:28:54 PM

I've officially hit my first wall in Iceborne; I've failed a few hunts against some of the easier monsters but was progressing fairly steadily till Acidic Glavenus stopped me cold.

This thing is just on a completely different level; it hops around like an Odogaron, hits harder than a Diblos, and just does not let up for a second.

An interesting thing about the Glavenus vs. Rathalos turf war: it actually seems random which one comes out on top. Either you get a repeat of Rathalos vs. Anjanath (AKA Rathalos wins), or you get a repeat of Rathalos vs. Deviljho (AKA Glavenus wins).

Black Diablos vs their regular selves work that way, too. It's the only other instance I remember that's random in the vanilla game, though, and since their models are identical it probably took much less work to implement.

Speakong of turf wars, this one surprised me: Velkhana has a Beam Struggle with Savage Deviljho with the resukt being both of them being knocked back by the blast.

Sep 9th 2019 at 12:56:27 PM

[up]Not just Velkhana; Blackveil Vaal Hazak and Namielle clash with Savage Deviljho as well, with the same results.

Speaking of Savage Deviljho, I remember seeing a few posts saying that Ebony Odogaron could probably put up a better fight against Deviljho than regular Odogaron can. Well, I don't know if Ebony can meet Deviljho, but it can meet Savage Deviljho. The result is, um, about what you'd expect: painful.

They nerfed the dog shit out of the Temporal Mantle. Can't say it didn't have it coming but man.

I haven't had a ton of time to sink my teeth into Iceborne but I'm enjoying what I have so far. I really need to make it a point to fight all the Master Rank monsters just to see what new toys they have to play with now. Vanilla Paolumu creates smaller, non-damaging tornadoes now like that classic D&D wind Elder Dragon who's name escapes me right now, and I think his multi-stomp is new, too?

The Hunting Horn feels incredibly satisfying now even with its relatively few changes - that spinning moves that creates bubbles and/or sets up an attack that tacks on extra damage before and after an encore adds a lot more than it feels like it should.

I'm looking forward to playing Iceborne, but it's going to be a while. I'm finishing up my degree this fall and Monster Hunter is one heck of a distraction. Maybe I'll reward myself with it after I graduate. :D

Sep 13th 2019 at 6:56:42 PM

I'm on PC, so quick question but what did they do to the temporal mantle to nerf it anyway?

Sep 13th 2019 at 7:13:45 PM

After you dodge 5 hits with it it stops working.

Sep 13th 2019 at 7:16:17 PM

Whelp, there goes the "Use the Temporal Mantle to constantly dodge a pissed off Behemoth until enmity goes away" strategy...

Yeah they increased the duration time to 2 minutes, but every hit drains it faster. Its no longer a 90 second free damage card, and while still powerful, its nowhere near as brainless.

Just means you have to put effort in again and can't just stack infinite damage skills to burst the monster down in the Rocksteady + Temporal lifespan.

My behemoth strategy is go in as hunting horn with my insect glaive friend, she goes for the mount, and I wide range ration her so she can maintain the mount while two randos wail on behemoth as he flounders about.

Honestly there's almost no chance of me ever, every hunting Behemoth again, especially if there's no MR version of it.

Leshen was fun, Behemoth was not.

Sep 14th 2019 at 7:43:05 AM

Any monster where the ideal solution is for someone to go hide in a corner and heal to deal with his horseshit is a poorly designed monster, imo.

Sep 14th 2019 at 7:46:22 AM

I think I might've had a bit more fun fighting the Behemoth than I did the Ancient Leshen, if only because Phase 4 of the Ancient Leshen really felt like a huge slog, especially after the previous three phases.

Though I do prefer the Ancient Leshen over Extreme Behemoth. At least I never have to touch Extreme Behemoth again after beating it once.

I wonder how Ancient Leshen and Extreme Behemoth would fare against hunters with Master Rank equipment.

Personally, I'd prefer if the 'net was a little friendlier, but you know the GIFT...

I have to say, Savage Deviljho vs. Ruiner Nergigante was not something I thought I'd see in Iceborne:
