    So, I evolved my heal kinsect into blast. now to see how this explosive moth works for my playstyle.

    edit: the explosions are pretty. Would +blast make them stronger? or does it just work on my weapons?

    Does paralysis on a weapon share diminishing returns with shock traps?

    I am uhh... way closer to having every final form longsword than I have any right to, unless tempered monsters unlock some more stuff.

    Also, I'm getting pretty far with my set of Pink Rathian + Dragon Eyepatch + Xeno Gloves; I probably need to sub out the pink rath and use a non-poison weapon, but I'm not sure what I should go for chest+boots+legs. Probably just try to grab more crit boost and go 100% crit on weakpoints.

    Nah, but his armor + his charm lets you do fun things with either of the hidden element blast bows.

    Is there a reason that the Endemic Life filter on my map doesn't actually show anything?

    Chaos is a ladder, my friends. Don't bring dung pods; if a Bagel wants to play, let it. Just did a dual hunt for a normal Azure Rathalos/Tempered Uragaan, and the first five minutes of the fight was just Urgy, Rathy, and Bagel bombing, rolling, and fireballing the shit out of each other while I stood in the center taking no damage and throwing out spirit combos on tripped monsters when I could. Cut all three tails at the start of the fight, too.

    Fought Vaal Hazak for the first time.

    No carts, but burned way too many healing items for my liking. That passive damage is easy to miss.

    Also made Odogaron Beta armor, mainly for looks, but the sharpness stuff is helpful for IG anyways. And slots! GLORIOUS SLOTS!

    Vaal Hazak B armor is... interesting.

    Ok, so apparently I can get better weapons... by augmenting my weapons when I hit HR 50 and start fighting tempered elder dragons.

    That may be a bit too much grind if I don't branch out to another weapon, because I think I'll literally have every longsword maxed by then.

    Really grown fond of Barroth as a punching bag. Maybe becuase he's such a fun target for HBG shenanigans.

    Brute Wyverns are usually pretty fun/cool in general I guess.

    The beta mask for inside-out-dog armor looks so rad. Gonna have to make one of those.

    I'm currently rocking the unknown skull mask, and it looks goofy as fuck whenever my hunter checks her hunting diary thing at the end of hunts. Just the evil looking skull mask doing these silly little "yep, check, OK got that, uh huh" movements cracks me up.

    Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the mask on the LR/alpha design (Thank god for hide helmet), but the beta design is wonderful and reminds me of Zinogre gunner armor (well, one of them, since the thing got a different model every rank, plus a deviant for good measure)

    getting the membrane drop from breaking vaal hazak's head is the literal worst.

    the fang only drops from head breaks, please just give it to me when i break it's head, i already need like 10 of these stupid things.

    I dunno I like the look of the helmet, though as cool as the male version looks I think I prefer the mask female characters get.

    How do you HBG, anyway? It seems so fun, but I don't understand how you don't get pasted due to the achingly long sheath time and the pokey movement.

    You pretty much need evade extender and just move by rolling.

    I started working on finishing upgrading a bunch of stuff today and the list of crap i need for current projects is terrible. I need gems from rathalos, nerg, bazel, kushala, teostra, legiana. Then i need a few claws from tobi, and possibly a few kirin parts. This week is going to be a griiiind.

    On the plus side im getting better at CB, i managed to do a teostra without being greedy and dying so woohoo! And ive had some really quick kills of other stuff, like my 330 legiana felt really good. But the gajalakas were hitting it with para and sleep lol.

    It is hilarious how much status gajalaks inflict with their stuff. Like, can I please buy a few of those?

    roll everywhere, shoot slicing ammo at everything, win the game.

    hbg gets a much longer evade than standard, rolling around is quite quick actually. sheathe time is still long if you need to use an item though, yea.

    Cap rewards use the same loot table as carving.

    Nergigante. Raw is king on GS.

    funnily enough, the max out aja GS is tied with nergi in raw

    i would take aja tbh for the horn fire dmg boost, provided you can keep sniping head and have WE or crit draw/punish draw

    same raw, more fire, and only diff is -30 affinity which isnt a big deal at all

    I feel like I've accomplished something for once. I've created my Fashion/Farming++/Ranged (or non-Elemental Melee) set. I just need to have RNG bless me with much better gems now. But hey, I have both Quest Reward+ and Capture Reward+ and Free Element/Ammo Up 2-3 depending on Necklace worn. (3 for Ranged, 2 and something else possibly for melee.)
    Now that that's done... I have to keep working on both my weapons and creating a good Longsword/Switch Axe set next.
