    So... I noticed something.

    One of the things I was hoping to do was do everything I couldn't do in the main game after I used Iceborne to make things easier. I couldn't play it enough or knew enough personal friends playing it to grind through a lot of the end stuff.

    Specifically I don't have the temporal and rocksteady mantles. Now I had the assignment for the temporal on standby before I started Iceborne. That assignment is gone now.

    Now I do get the idea of not making it too easy to get the challenging stuff. However... I just paid $40 or $50 for an expansion where a big perk of it is to get really nice armor and weapons.

    Basically if they're blocking everyone not hardcore enough to get all the mantles in the main game from EVER getting them in the future installments, that's... shit. That's REALLY shit.

    I got the rocksteady mantle after starting Iceborne.

    Stupid/obvious question, but you know that if you open the quest board, then back out, there's an additional menu where they've completely split low/high rank and master rank. All the previous stuff is still there, at least it was for me. The game just kind of auto opens to the last rank option you did, so it's super easy to not notice.

    No, I'm aware of the different places for the quests. I'll have to check again tomorrow because I have to pack up my stuff in the hotel room, but I had zero special assignments looking just ten minutes ago. It won't even let me go to the option.

    21 hours of playtime in, and i feel like i finally need to farm gear.

    i also got carted for the first time in world, whoops.
    i beat the story nergigante and then got overconfident on the sidequest.
    then it carted me again because oh yeah, food bonuses wear off when you cart.

    So the Velkhana battle real fun, enjoy hunting it.

    The armour set
    Increases attacks on Crit with elemental damage. Also has a skill that increases damage while sheathed that builds up in a separate bar. It’s a real good set

    Also here’s a stupid death that caught me off guard.

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    Last night as I was farming my Legiana+ armor we got a Legiana that really, really liked to run. So it was constantly climb up four levels, then jump off a ledge, then clime something else, etc... I was so happy I could call a Shamos to do all the climbing for me. Such a great feature. It was made extra fun by my buddy not having a mount on the Highlands so he had to make all the trips on foot.

    Any verdict on how the Greatsword changes feel in Iceborne? I totally fell in love with the weapon in World, so i'm real keen to hear how Iceborne's treating it.

    Also interested in hearing how Dual blades are going

    everything i have heard is that great sword and HBG are the 2 best weapons in iceborne

    I am tempted to give GS a try but I don't particularly enjoy slow weapons

    LBG, SnS, DBs for me

    So for GS you can now do this: https://gfycat.com/meekidlegreendarnerdragonfly-monster-hunter-world-iceborne-beta

    Dual Blades didn't change much, there's a somewhat useful new dodge that comes from hitting L2 after doing an attack with triangle, your hunter will shoot some slinger ammo and do a dive, it has a good amount of iframes it seems. You can also grab on to the monster with the clutch claw by finishing the pirouette combo in demon mode, then pressing L2. Your hunter will do a jumping attack, if you press triangle during this animation, you won't grab on to the monster, and just hit it and then jump away from it instead.

    In other things, this is pure conjecture, but it seems they've tried to incentivize killing instead of capturing, because several of the carved item descriptions very specifically say "Obtained from carving" and for example, it's the only way I've been able to get Rathian Surspikes, by carving her tail. When I've killed a monster instead of trapping them, I've had better luck getting rare materials.

    Someone will probably have to do the math to see if this really changed from MHW.

    As for getting the Rocksteady/Temporal mantles, make sure you go to the Research center or whatever the boat with the boss lady is callled. There's a questline there you need to complete before you can do the 3 quests that unlock the temporal mantle (It's the Lunastra questline). For Rocksteady, you need to have hunted 3 different threat lv3 tempered monsters (Deviljho, Elder dragons) so that the "Summons from below" quest shows up.

    I've seen tons of hype for LS and hammer too, hell, even IG. It seems like the combination of extra moves and clutch claw really added a lot of great new dynamics and I weep that I have to wait until January.

    I really like the clutch claw mounting mechanic, it's similar to the one in Dragon's dogma, but you need to know when to do it, otherwise you'll get bonked right off with damage to yourself. When they first announced it I thought it would be spammable.

    Hopping between my Iceborne'd PS4 hunter back to PC, and I'm really missing that clutch claw. It just feels so damned good.

    It's an optional quest, not a special assignment.

    So I'm home and double checked everything, checked all optional quests for Master and High rank. I do not have the mission for the Temporal Mantle anymore, and the blacksmith doesn't give it anymore. I'm kinda worried that my save has been bugged, the blacksmith even still talked about Teostra eating gunpowder and found his way to the arena that way. So I'm pretty sure it acknowledges that I finished Pandora's Arena. But the other mission has literally vanished, and I'm starting to get pissed.

    Oh, I also checked a specific guide. Turns out No Remorse, No Surrender is a Special Assignment, and in fact not an optional mission. So it wouldn't show up there anyway.

    Apparently if you have special assignments, and you're at the point where you have the Serious Handler temporarily... you cannot run special assignments.

    So the table and chairs in your Seliana room have the same interactions as the ones in the Gathering Hub - you can toast, sing a jaunty tune, drink, or pass out at the table.

    But your room is a solo-only area. So rather than being whimsical, those interactions tell the bleak story of a celebrated but desperately lonely hero who escapes a life of relentless violence through alcoholism.

    Huh, I'd been looking forward to Glavenus weapons as nice looking dual blades with blast, since the Dios ones look the way they do, but just realised today that those are from the Deviant version and base Glave is fire damage.

    Oops. I'd completely forgotten that detail and now I've disapointed myself.

    Well, looking it up, at least the variant Glavenus ones have really high raw and still look great?

    Ouch, singling me out like that feels a little uncalled for. My forward dash attack, which I rely on to close distance with monsters, can automatically become a jump attack if I use it on a slope or near a ledge. Do you think I'm intentionally trying to steal your mounts, or do you believe that if there's an insect glaive user on the team, courtesy demands I avoid ever making a jump attack?
