I will never understand this.

When I play online and the monster goes to sleep because it's low on health, other players will ALWAYS try to mega bomb it, and I'm like WHY AREN'T YOU USING TRAPS WE CAN END THIS RIGHT NOW AND GET BETTER REWARDS.

Is there something I'm missing!? I guess it's better if you're looking to break particular parts for their rewards!?
Some parts are carve only but it doesn’t sound like that’s what was happening to you lol.

Having a hard time getting 3 other people to join my SOS flares in this game. Never had this issue with MHW. I'd just spend my time joining other people's SOS's flares except no one seems to do the main story missions I need to progress ><

Did Nightshade Palouma for the first time and only 1 other person joined. Neither of us had any sleep resistance (went in blind) and took 42 mins...that was a long time. Going to check if I need status block stuff before firing my SOS flares in the future so I can see I need stuff like sleep immunity and quit out and come back with it.

I feel like the average clear time on Iceborne monsters when I do get a 4p party is about 15 mins a fight, which is perfect length. Solo is about 25-30 for me.

SOSing the final boss is Behemoth levels of failure. It's for the best if you solo it when you get the chance.

Final Velkhana fight down on first try, carted once but I’ll take it. Kadachi Dito LS has carried me through most of this Iceborne content, my new fav for now.

I did that with 4U after playing a few hundred hours with friends and it helped me get my clear times down immensely and opened my eyes to a lot of bad habits I developed

Saying that, I have been helping some friends with lower level stuff but I should be able to finish the story today or tomorrow and start joining the seshes here

3pc Tigrex armor bonus is ridiculous. I was supporting random SOS 1/2 faint investigations with nothing but wide range 5 and 10 mega potions. Getting 140+ buffs/heals and still having 4 mega pots left at the end is hilarious.

I thought the event was for a week but looking at the following link, it will be available during three months so me hurrying this evening was for nothing. :P
According to the official page for event quest schedule, it’s up for the rest of the year at least.
Cool cool. I still rather do it quickly I guess, it's one of those things that get easily forgotten when they're there for so long, it also boosts XP I think.
Now if only people would join SOS for it, haha. It's really not difficult just hunting alone is always a bit boring to me.

I know we have our squad, but there's not always people playing either.

Btw there's already someone on again who I can't add xEik 😉

Something is off with the matchmaking, the same thing happened for the first week or so when the base game was released.
Ah I see, really wondering what's up. Hope they can fix it soon.

Or it was ridiculous that you had to craft 100s of pods in world just because you wanted to play support?

This is a huge improvement imo. Tedious doesn't always mean good lol, actually it never does lol

It makes supporting more viable in random groups for sure. The set is otherwise perfectly fine for DPS. No more using specialized support sets just to keep your overexcited, frozen, burning and/or stunned party alive.

Just hunted a few Glavenus now having never encountered any before and goddamn it hits like a truck. Love it though. Was nearly carted when it and a Nargacuga showed up and both targeted me. Even with full Odogaron armour it is capable of carting in 2 good hits definitely. Makes up for Nargacuga being a little disappointing on its own. Now I ain't looking forward to either Brachydios or Tigrex.

That reminds me, I still need to fight AT Vaal one more time for his layered, but I'm so sick of fighting him in general that I really don't want to. Ugh.
I'm just missing AT Zorah, Xeno and Kulve because I quit World before they were in

And honestly just thinking about going back to Zorah is putting me to sleep, I really don't want to lol

At 5:30, Rajang just picks up a shock trap and crushes it in his hands.

Jesus Christ.
Everybody: MHW is too easy, just like at what they did to Deviljho!
Capcom:

(Also Rajang now have shortened duration from being downed. He gets up five seconds after Fujioka finished his mount attack. Jesus Christ.)

I want that handicraft charm but I also want to like actually play the videogame that I just bought. I did one yesterday, didn't get the mat I needed and literally alnost cried haha

Tbh I'm indignant about needing to go back to the lower ranks for anything, let alone loading cannons for 30 minutes

Go to the elder melder and use a gold wyverian print to grab the Zorah gem you need.

Honestly that Rajang guy looked annoying to fight IMO. Also he looks like he's in x2 speed when seeing his animations.

I just want to let everyone here know that installing an SSD (PS PRO) will change your life.
Load times are cut down by a least 60%. I can't make it to the kitchen before the quest bell dings. Loading into an area takes 5 seconds.
I highly recommend it for the over all enjoyment and grind of this game.
This is what I picked up.
Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM)
$129 USD


The Install of the drive, operating system, and transfer of files (just Iceborne and my saves) took just under 30 mins.

p.s. I'm playing resolution priority so playing framerate priority may be even faster?

Currently MR 51, really loving this game. Yian Garuga is annoying as hell. Nothing at all to do with his move set but rather his armored wings (And he won't drop one of his parts, I've killed/captured him 7 times so far lol...le sigh).

I honestly believe that everyone should devote some time to just playing solo (removing cat included), it's difficult as fuck if you're used to grouping but it WILL teach you the game and monster patterns

I did that with 4U after playing a few hundred hours with friends and it helped me get my clear times down immensely and opened my eyes to a lot of bad habits I developed

Saying that, I have been helping some friends with lower level stuff but I should be able to finish the story today or tomorrow and start joining the seshes here
Pretty much. I run with a twitter group of friends, and we have a couple of people who have asked for help for every single last monster in Iceborne, they're currently about to fight Tigrex and I'm like...why don't you just solo? You're never going to get good at this game being carried by everyone else. They're carried so hard by others in our group that they don't even know about decos and stuff. I pretty much refuse to help them

Other than Zorah, going back and destroying tedious AT quests sounds sorta cathartic
