I don‘t need any artillery gems of course, but I do need 3 Zorah armor pieces at all times.
Finally jumped on it since it was on sale on XBL. I originally put 100+ hours into the base PS4 version back when it came out but now I have an XB1X and would love to play with the elite controller. How is Iceborne? Is it more of the same of what we had with the base game? Not that there's anything wrong with that as I loved it minus stuff like matchmaking etc. Any big QoL updates since the first game? I'm excited, creating my character right now. Also would you prioritize resolution, quality or performance? I think resolution was the way to go back in vanilla.
From what I gathered, bows tend to go for elemental damage these days. That means Dragon Piercer is not that useful anymore as cool as it is.
Bow is still ridiculous and gets the 2nd highest clear times in the game, with a big difference between the next highest clear time. It is the most deco hungry weapon in the game though, you want Constitution, Mighty Bow, Spread Shots, Normal Shots, 100% affinity, maxed out elemental, and then max WEX and Crit Boost alongside Crit Element.
Bow got a new move, the thousand dragons, which is a close-range shotgun like burst that uses slinger ammo for maximum effect. And yeah, element has been redeemed in iceborne, since the cap was removed.
The squad is only moderately active, more so in the weekend than during the working days. Unfortunately, there is no way to invite asynchronously so to get an invite we have to be in the same session at the same time. I usually play at around 20:00 UTC so the best course of action is to ask for the session id around then, get in, I invite you and then you can log off it is a bad time for you.Hey, is the ERA squad still active on PS4?
I‘d really love to have a group to return to.
SoSs are fun sometimes, but bad when you want to get shit done. :/
If someone could send me an invite I‘d be eternally grateful...almost literally considering the amount of hours I put into this game. >.<
Ever since I got my third Agitator/Health Boost decoration I'm a happy camper and those are in almost all my builds considering that, with wall banging, monsters stay enraged most of the fight.At best you're looking at 6 true raw and 5% affinity. Endgame weapons now regularly go over 300 true raw, so that's a 2% boost. That 2% isn't going to matter unless you're speedrunning. And you can get 5% affinity from one point in Expert or Agitator, which you can get from significantly more common decos.
I've swapped from Lance to LBG for a bit and the game still hasn't given me a Shield jewel. I'm convinced it isn't real.
Should have asked for help in the discord. I think I need to still do that quest as well haha, but I don't want to fight Kushala. :[I just finished The Storm Brings the Unexpected, the optional quest that has Tempered Kushala and Tempered Black Vail Hazak it upgrades the affinity booster and I fucking roared out loud with Gutts facial expression in mind! I fucking hate both of these elders..... Btw Fcs GS Blast Safi'jiva with all the mele spec ei. wkns exploit, crit Boost &eye maxxed etc etc. I felt like guts, ripped their tails and broke heads and chests multiple times.... Long bloody fight...... I was victorious at the end with a 44min run! Btw no bastard wanted to join even though I had the SOS up the whole time..... That saddened me.
That's easily the worst part, especially since you have no way of knowing when a tip will actually drop. It feels very steeped in design elements for quests that shouldn't apply at all since it's a cute side thing otherwise.
Looks pretty fun. Might try it and swap out slugger for evade distance/evade to start.This is a very good Hammer build.
Needs peak performance instead of slugger. I'd probably also max out crit eye and attack instead of stun resist and medicine but I can see why people would like those for comfiness and you can get the affinity from Safi awakenings at the expense of attack like they did. You gain back a ton of health just with a single health boost augment on a hammer though so medicine is kinda meh imo.This is a very good Hammer build.
I never tried Rajang with lance but doing that fight without really being able to dodge sounds rough. Hammer is my go-to against him. Once you learn his attacks he's not that hard to dodge.
It's doable. With guard/guard up, Gunlance and Lance can tank just about everything he has. Only his enraged explosion aerial pound does serious chip damage, but with evade distance you can back hop away safely.
Lance is the easiest weapon to kill him with for me(besides sticky spam and what not). Can block everything but the grab which is fairly easy to dodge even with hops and can chase him down well enough to keep hitting the tail. You absolutely need health augment for tempered though cause you get chipped like crazy, but other than that it's pretty simple.
Fun fact: they
It was also addressing some AMD GPU crash issues alongside a few other bugs (on the PC side anyway!)
I use the Beta helmet as a pride thing from his hunt, there are better ones for my build but I won't let that go until I replace it with the Furious Rajang helmet, which ever one looks cooler!Guys. Guys. Guys... I think I love Rajang. Like, Rajang might be my favorite fight so far. Not the tempered version, I haven't gotten there yet, but basic Rajang is amazing. Every moment feels so tense and he's so fast! I lost to him 5 times, mostly time running out, but I finally beat him in 33 minutes and it felt so god damn good! I don't think any hunt has given me that kind of satisfaction yet. I'm gonna farm that bastard until I'm wearing him from head to toe.
Yeah, Rajang is a fantastic fight.Guys. Guys. Guys... I think I love Rajang. Like, Rajang might be my favorite fight so far.
