    Sword and Shield gets ignored a lot, but there's nothing quite like a good SnS player for control.

    Having a great player in a group who knows how to use it properly (and is built for control) can mean the monster never gets a chance to do anything but stand/lie there and get hit.

    Monster Hunter World Numbers: Over 7.5 Million.

    A bit over 2.5 Million of those in Japan.

    Which means 5 Million for the rest of the world so far.

    Oh, to put this in another perspective.

    This is now Capcom's best selling game in the history of the company.

    I think that means we're getting G-Rank.

    In my quest to get to sub-ten on White Winds (which, incidentally, is making my HR skyrocket) I've come across some time-intensive parts of my playstyle that need to be refined

    1. My palico actually distracting monsters a lot is both a boon and a curse. It takes the heat off of me, but it also makes them less predictable, which can make all the difference when I'm trying to land a power charged upswing in their face and they suddenly turn to glare at my cat. Little buddy definitely does damage, but would it be more efficient to go in without him? I wonder

    2. Flash bombing flying monsters is of course a boon, but it introduces more elements of unpredictability. Legiana and Rathalos have a tendency to charge around in random directions when blinded, which stretches out the time for hitting them by quite a ways. With later flash bombs this isn't a problem, and I actually prefer it when they recover faster because it lets me focus on their heads while they're shaking it off, but I may need to look at alternative ways to knock them out of the air. Maybe slinger ammo that's being dropped by the monsters as I wail on them? Does it work on Legiana and Rathalos as well as it does on Xeno?

    3. More generally, Rathalos and Diablos running back and forth like assholes is a serious time drain. Should I save my traps just for them, to drop when they start scrambling?

    There's a lot of variables to consider, here

    I really wish they'd show how much health is left if you fail a quest. Tried to 15 minute solo some tempereds and kept running out of time sometime after I mega barreled them. Too much time chasing and roar'd.

    That's a whole lot of effort and math being done by people who forget that it doesn't matter if your weapon does more damage when attacking a post if in the real-world you bounce off of elder dragons because you only have Blue sharpness instead of White. Sacrificing damage because you bounced immediately covers the difference that like a 10 raw attack value difference would otherwise make.

    Sort of. See in previous iterations of the series there is indeed an even higher rank called G rank. In Japan getting this usually meant that after buying the base game you had to buy a standalone expansion of the base game with G rank content released a few months to a year later. In America we usually got just the second version with G rank baked in.

    I'm all for new armor/weapons and monster variants. That seems like the best/easiest way to add more life on to the game.

    That being said, I'm kind of hoping for new zones and completely new monsters as well.

    Mkay, my turn for a question.

    So I've got my Handicraft Charm at level 2, and have all the materials for level 3 except a blue commendation that's still all ??? on the upgrade screen. My buddy told me those ones only come from the HR100 quest & the quest for completing every other quest in the game at the earliest. Is that accurate?

    Oh nice, I'm pretty close to that as well, at least for 6/7 star. Only HR46 so I'm still getting there. I was just afraid I was going to have to wait forever (relatively).

    Picked up World this weekend. Started off with the Bow.

    Man, this game sure has a lot of QOL changed compared to previous games, doesn't it? Automatic map-marking of gather points? The ability to track a monster by prints and elimination of Paintballs? A single contiguous map, meaning no more monsters disappearing down screen transition tunnels? Canteens and equipment changing during hunts? Wishlists that inform me when I can make a piece of equipment? Equipment downgrades/refunds? Equipment changing outside of my personal room? It's all pretty amazing. And the monsters have been interesting Great Jagras is disgusting but neat.

    My biggest complaint is the tiny, tiny font for in-game text.

    Anyway, I hope to make some progress this week and eventually get online.

    In case you were wondering why I was hunting Kirin. I stupidly decided to combo coral zone quests and 8 star quests. It wasn't too bad, but Kirin can be tricky. I got lucky 3 of my runs had my little cat bombing bros and so that got me some mega hits.

    true strong slash has super armor/minds eye, it doesnt bounce

    also which elder are you bouncing off of due to blue? only thing i can think of is Nergi hard black horns, but if you let his horns get hard as a GS, you arent doing enough true strongs on his face

    and between 5-15 new monsters generally

    yeah the difference between vaal hazak with white and jagras with blue is about 15 damage.

    but you need to sacrifice focus to get the same 98% crit build, which lowers dps drastically

    the 300 dragon ele is 30 overall, but GS hits slow enough that the proc is neglible. Only azure los and pink ian are super weak to dragon, rest take okay damage but nothing to write home about

    elderseal is also not great, doesnt proc often/quick enough

    My biggest wish for the game right now is more monsters.

    It needs more monsters for ice,lightning, and water. Barioth, Zinogre, Ludroth (or just Plesioth, it always made nice gear, and adds more sleep kit too). Ideally, Gammoth, Lagiacrus, Mizutsuze, Agnaktor too. Then we have three non-elder fights for the basic elements.

    Bring Gigginox back as an alternate poison line and you can use the subspecies for lightnimg (and it shares a skeleton with Barioth if you want to not add leviathans, but Nibelsnarf is more water...)

    Kushala, Teostra in some places, even a Lavasioth when hardened you bounce off when blue. Uragaan too.

    And yes the platonic ideal of the GS user will do perfectly timed TSS forever and never bounce but in reality that's never how it goes
