    So early on SoS seems like kind of a crapshoot. I've joined at least two Anjanath SoS quests hoping to farm for parts where the host just could not stop carting. Time just goes down the drain and it's a little frustrating. Hard to save people from themselves.

    You'd think they'd play defensivly and let themselves get carried.

    Meanwhile, joining in lategame Kirin SOSes was delightful. People using Lifepowders and knocking others out of stuns. Everyone setting bombs/etc on sleep. Communicating across English/JPN lines with stickers. Probably the happiest I've been playing with MHun randoms.

    I made good time here despite me still getting greedy for hits. Also why is anjanath so thirsty?

    So my constant expedition hunting of Legaina, Los, and Blos never opened investigations. But killing them for their stuff made the vale monsters trivial.

    Has anyone found a way to farm for Gem's yet? I'm finding alot of final gear requires them...but i have no idea how to get them other than kill X 12 or more times.....is there a specific part to break? Or trap vs kill?

    Investigations with a gold reward have been my best results, so far.

    Took out both Rathalos and Diabolos last night, first try. That's probably not a huge achievement or anything, but I'm still proud of it. Handler asks "don't you want to head back to camp and prepare?" No, I want to hunt down *this particular* Rathalos that just tried to fry us to a crisp. Gonna show it a thing or two about bows and proper respect for the people who carry 'em.

    I've found if you can swing it, its better to do optional sos's for monsters you want to farm than assignments. Assignments can be that persons first attempt, optional means they have normally gotten it at least once.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    gems are the rarest item for most monsters

    best way for gems (coming from past mon huns)

    find a good investigation with as many gold rewards as possible (easy multiple mons one help to, to reduce hp and stagger/cut threshholds)

    break face - back - tail. Always cut tail, most gems used to only come from tail carves (pl8 runs anyone?)

    there used to be a better chance of getting gems from carves vs capturing, hence why no one ever cap'd deviljho or styg zino

    however unsure of that still applies. maybe try a mix of cap / kill, but always make sure to break face, break back, and carve tail

    and then pray

    I can see my personal loop to just run expeditions to get tempered hunts.

    It can replace the 100's of hours I spent charm running.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    Also, since I didn't have the energy to farm Lavasioth to check last night (and definitely didn't have the energy to farm Black Diablos....)

    Does anyone know yet how much damage Spread/Power Shots and Normal shots skills give to their respective arrow types?

    I know that Piercing Shots specifically adds either 10 or 20% depending on rank, and Airborne adds 10%

    I'm assuming that Spread and Normal Shot skills add 10% but I have no idea

    Is anybody on PS4 playing this on multiple systems? I've got one for each TV thanks to friends who upgraded to Pro versions. Do you have to do the upload save file shuffle, or is everything tied to your PSN account? If it's the former, do your loadouts and options come with?

    Other players have always been able to mount monsters, this game just makes it a lot easier.

    Also unlocked my blast and ice dualies. Or as I call them "fuck you diablos, go die in your hole alone."

    The blast set in particular is really amazing. I'm sitting there needing one piece of Odo armor to get the 4-piece, and I need to farm either 2 hardbones or 1 gem. But then the rarity 7 blast blades are right there to make, they're just going to eat up all my mats. I threw caution to the wind, then went back at Odo with my upgrades.

    He basically looked like he tripped and fell, then forgot to get up. They halved my time, basically. And he was kind enough to drop the gem in a bargain for his brothers lives, or something. I got that 4-piece and the upgraded blast DBs within the span of ten minutes, and then shit got real.

    I like that you can really feel your upgrades in this game. It's still just a number on a character sheet, but it makes a noticeable difference, and I feel like that's hard to pull off.

    People keep saying that the wyverians give them weapon stats. But every time I talk to them in every map they just say something cryptic and give me an item. And like i've already beat xeno, so it's not like i'm locked behind story stuff.

    Yeah like armor upgrades only like 10 points, but I can say for sure you fucking feel those 10 points when you survive a kill move or getting combo'd.

    Man last night I was having a bitch of a time with a Kushala. I'd killed like 3 earlier and I figured "Maybe I was just being too lax" but I swear it felt like it was hitting harder and staying alive longer, finally bring the fucker down for good and on the results I get that's it a gold crown large one, well there was my fucking problem!

    A little thing about your later game fights: don't forget to switch your cat to something more useful than plunderblade, at least on the first attempts.

    Health booster and lifepowders can be clutch for keeping your teammates alive as well.

    I wish the system to get tempered monster quests was easier. I have a quest for a rathian and an anjanath but they're both tier one so give basically useless rewards, and I can't figure out how to get tier 2 stuff.

    I have to upload my save file every time I am done on a console and make sure I download it again if I'm playing on my other console. Afaik everything comes with - I haven't had any issues yet but I do wish that the PS4 handled saves the way the Xbox does - where it just checks for the newest version everytime you launch the game and uploads constantly instead of overnight or whatever dumb bullshit the PS4 does for cloud saves.

    Love the vit mantle. Its so nice to be able to start off a fight not having to pot. Especially if you're getting a feel for the creature.

    And this morning I maxed meowlatavs so I've now maxed all equipment and my palico is now max level. I think I've played this a little bit...

    Wow that Negrigante fight is bullshit. I do not like these fights that end up in stupid confined places especially with these monsters that can chain combo you in two hits. That isn't fun. . .in the slightest. Nearly 300 points in defense, Mega Armorskin and Defense (L) buff from the canteen and you're saying the guy can STILL two shot stunlock me? Yea not fun.

    . . .also traps don't seem to work? You can paralyze the guy, but getting him stuck in a shock or pitfall trap is no go for some "game" reason.

    Pretty sure the nest walls come down to give you more space. And no, some monsters are immune to traps. Especially elder dragons.

    Be glad it isn't also immune to status (though thats usually only the gigantic ones)

    I'll say this again, and keep advocating for it. Do not fight nergy in his nest. Wake his ass up and then run back to the previous area. He'll give chase and you'll get to fight him in a larger area, with slopes to get jump attacks.

    So I'm chasing around Anjanath aiming for a gem because I wanna get the final Anjanath Greatsword, what a walloper that thing will be

    And I think the loot system works so that I get a separate chance for carving its tail, then as bonuses for cutting off its tail and breaking its head, three chances when I carve it, and I think multiple chances when I capture it. Does that sound right? I think it's right. I think those are all the chances for getting a gem, before counting in Investigation bonuses.

    So I'm chasing Anjanath all over the Ancient Forest, just greatswording it all over the place so I can keep going for its tail (though I think it might be a better use of my time to just break his head over and over with the hammer, I'll need to test). And I cannot chase this thing without Bazzy showing up and ruining the party. Bazzy! Get outta here Bazzy! I ain't here to fight you!

    On about the fourth hunt when Bazzy showed up it was while I was trying to capture the Anjanath as it fled. Anja charged at Bazzy as I was laying down the Pitfall trap, which Bazzy immediately rushed into as Anja ran. In a fit of pique I unloaded a True Charged Slash directly onto Bazzy's face, which broke its head. Instead of guarding, I sheathed my sword and tried to run. I got carted for my trouble. Fuckin' Bazzy.

    So I find Anjanath, and capturing him in his nest is kind of a nightmare but whatever. I get him! And then, in the quest rewards, I see it! A gem!
    Bazelgeuse gem. For breaking its head.

    God damn you, Bazzy!
