Monster Hunter World/Iceborne/Rise THREAD: Its Monster Huntin' time!!


Recommended Posts

I need to kill Alatreon and Fatalis, but i am still catching up with Iceborne, since i didnt play the game for like a year due rl stuff.

I am still creating my builds, and i have yet to add the augmentations i want since i am still updating my guiding lands, XD

 

BTW, is nice how MHW keeps getting new players every day.

Sometimes when i want to take a break from doing stuff, i go to low and high rank to help manquitos as we say for noobs in my group of friends, and is funny how once i jump into a quest, or expedition, it gets populated quickly by newcomers to try to get carried on them, lol (It helps that i like to play support, so i am always keeping them alive)

If you did this during event festivals, you get extra rewards and VIP seasonal tickets.

 

But yeah, get to Fatalis asap and get all of his broken shit!!

 

Though be sure to have Health Augmentation on your weapons when you do fight him!!

I think that i need to kill Alatreon first, right? 

Iirc, i cant access the Fatalus quest until i killed Alatreo just once. 

 

Right now, the only weapon i have with health regen is the Kulve Glaive Paralisys due me usually playing on a pseudo support role. 

 

But i also have a variant of the set using safi glaives with nergi essence. 

 

I am still trying to get kulve essence on them, dunno if i can, lol.

There's a Reddit/NERF AS F@#! Alatreon quest, that you do before fighting Fatalis!!

 

Kulve's back, so you can get some Kjarr elemental weapons, (ice & fire only...everything else does shit elemental damage to Alatreon)

But  if you have a Safi (Ice & Fire) elemental weapons, 3 pieces or full Safi armor  you're still good.

 

 

Bring max Blight Resistance too against both Alatreon & Fatalis.

You get hit with dragon blight against Alatreon, you're screwed on doing elemental damage to negate the DPS check nova.

 

Fatalis is a living napalm/nuclear reactor, which can and will easily set your ass on fire.

The movie-tin in MHW high-key makes me want to go see the movie.  I heard it's not so much insulting as it is bland but Capcom did a great job translating Milla to MHW and making her feel like she wasn't being intrusive.  

Movie-tie in did not do that for me, as I'm passing on the movie until it comes to one of the streaming services.

The only positive thing I can say is that they did a great job on  the monster designs!!

 

One good thing about the movie-tie in is that its gives new players going into MR (Master Rank)  the best starting MR armor!!

 

So that's a plus. 🙂

I'm also waiting until it comes out on streaming, not worth dealing with redneck plague rats.  I just meant that my interest in seeing it is higher than what it would have been otherwise.

 

While the whole Isekai bit is weird, given that Monster Hunter "main characters" are just CAWs, technically they can be anything you want and in this case (and in how MHW handled her) that's just what Milla's headcanon is.

 

Also apparently that big Leo Whitefang looking Hunter she was teaming with is played by Ron Perlman in the film.  I guess Hannibal Chau finally found a place where his monster wares can appreciated!

..aka...The most based dude in the game!!

I'm still trudging through the Campaign mode, just got done with the red gator monster that makes you bleed and the whole "This is where monsters come to die and their remains feed the Coral Highlands" piece.

 

What weapon loadouts do you normally run with?  So far I've tried the Hammer, the Great Sword, the Charge Blade, the Bow, the Heavy Bowgun, and the Long Sword.  Out of those I enjoy the Long Sword and the Bow the best.

I need to get back on this game. I was enjoying the hell out of it and then got sidetracked.

It's always Charge Blade.

W33B CONFIRMED!!

 

LOL!!

Jokes aside when I'm on my melee profile, I usually use Dual Blade, the Charge  CHAD Blade!!, Hammer, Great  GROWN-AZZ MAN Damage Sword and Long Sword.

 

CHAD-BLADE, GROWN-AZZ MAN Damage! Sword and the Hammer are the best heavy hitting meele weapons in the game!

 

For range, alternate the bowguns. 

Sticky and Spread HBG kills everything in minutes!

Seconds, with the right loadout & skill!!

 

Sticky Ammo has been the Meta for years!!

Pierce works very well on the exceptionally large monsters!!

 

I use LBG for small fast-moving targets that can kill you quick: i.e.:  Rajang aka...MONKEY/Vegeta!!

And LBG for Alatreon for the rapid-fire elemental ammo.

Yeah, you're still in LR (Low Rank) 

 

Stick with the Defender armor and weapons.

Upgrade the armor and weapons as you play through the story and while in between quests.

 

Check out this video for the optional quests to do:

You want to get your elemental resistance mantles before fighting the Elder Dragons and to make your life easier with monster that give you blights.

 

Another tip when you get to HR get the  Girrors alpha coil!!

https://monsterhunterworld.wiki.fextralife.com/Girros+Coil+Beta

 

It helps cancels out the environmental effluvium of the Rotten Vaal, whenever you're there hunting or gathering.

 

@PsychoblueI don't want to overload you with info in this post, so I will stop here.

Please tell me that you're finally on PC now!! :)

I retired from PS4 version once I had finished the movie-tie in mission.

Yep I got it all figured out.  I'll farm some Commendations so I can have more Defender IIIs without having to downgrade constantly to get the Commendation back to upgrade my next weapon of choice.  I hunted some more Anjaranth in case I want to have more Defender II weapon tests while cleaning up the lower level optional missions.

 

 Charge Blade was the first weapon I picked.  It's a lot of fun especially when you get the hang of pole vaulting onto monsters to start the mounted slash mini-game, but I prefer the raw damage and rage slashes of the long sword.  

 

Defender Katana III is absolutely nutty.  I just defeated Rathalos and I made quick work of him.  The Diablos is next.

Few things are as satisfying as landing all the hits of SAED with the Charge Blade!!

Some game settings quality of life tips: 

 

 

Another thing aside from getting upgrade the canteen and garden, get some charms.

List of the ones in the game: https://monsterhunterworld.wiki.fextralife.com/Charms

 

 

The most important ones to get and upgrade to max throughout your playthrough are...(NOTE on the right I put what the actual name of the charm is when looking for it in the Smity):

 

Important one to get:

  • Critical Eye Skill charm - Master's Charm = You'll be using either this or the Agitator charm for most of the game to increase your damage.
  • Agitator Skill charm - Challenger Charm = see above.... though most builds use this one over the first, but the skill only works when the monster is enraged.
  • Handicraft skill charm - Handicraft Charm...this one increases your weapons sharpness.
  • Health Boost charm - Health Charm* Good one to have if you don't have Vitality gems. More health = bigger health bar = more hits that you can take.
  • Artillery skill charm - Artillery charm. If your using Charge Blade, you'll need this one until you can make some good armor pieces with this skill. When you're able to max this skill out without the charm then use either the Guard or Capacity charm ...if you don't have those skills or have the max.
  • Fire and Ice Elemental skill charms - Blaze and Frost Charms...you'll need these when facing the endgame monster called Alatreon. For that fight "you will" need ice or fire elemental weapons. Note: Water (Flood) and Thunder (Bolt)  Charms are other good elemental charms to get. 

 

  • Earplugs skill Charm -   Earplugs charm...get this upgraded to a high enough level and you can recover from monster roars quicker or be completely immune to them.
  • Critical Boost - Critical Charm. The jewels for this skill is super hard to get and the skill is very good, as pairs with the Critical Eye skill But you won't be able to make this unto late HR.
  • Guard skill charm = Ironside Charm...another good charm with for Charge Blade. Guard helps the strengthen your shield when blocking, so you get knocked back less and take less damage when guarding. If you can get Artillery skill maxed out with gear or jewels, use this one. You just Guard 1 for most monsters and Guard 5 for much tough ones (Elder dragons, Rajang, and End game monsters)

I'm glad we're getting more focus on training/riding monsters rather than just killing or drugging them.  It makes the franchise a far easier sell to my normie colleagues that don't know about it.  Otherwise I sound like one of those redneck hunter weirdos. 🥴
