Monster Hunter: World (PS4/XB1/PC)



  • @minamik i tried the Rathian/Rathalos one but got destroyed, and if i remember correctly i finished the one with kill flying small monsters with Tizitzi ya ku roaming around, i don't care about the armors but if i want to get the platinum i have to do 50.

    Anyone checked out the arena quests from the arena lass in the gathering hub? There are two sets of armor you can only get from doing those quests, for anyone interested in fashion hunting, lol.

    There are 3(4). Low rank Guild armor version, High rank Guild armor a/b versions and a seperate piece of Guild armor. While I think they look kinda neat, the skills they give is pretty bad. Same deal with the armor you can craft from the quest you get after Completing every optional quest up to and including 8 Stars. It's a pity, but nothing has replaced my Xeno'jiva armor with earplugs, we'll see if Deviljho's armor will.
    Some of the guildweapons you can craft from the arena coins seem pretty good though, like the Longsword is possibly the best LS in terms of raw damage, especially if you plop a non-elemental boost decoration in there.



  • I just read that Marvel vs Capcom Infinite would become a Play Anywhere title, I thought it couldn' happen once the game is already out because of licensing issue and what not. What are the chanses that Monster Hunter World also becomes a Play Anywhere title?



  • Curious how much time you guys have poured into this game before you "beat" it or simply put it down? I put it down for a month to finish Persona 5 because it's gone on too long, but I wanna jump back in. Wondering how many hours of fun you've been having since buying the game.



  • @dipset Put in a solid 100 hours, saw credits, attempted the next "story" mission a few times, and currently taking a bit of a break. Still love the game to death but I probably won't hop back in until new content drops or if a friend really needs some assistance.



  • @dipset Way too much time, lol. But, yeah, now I just put in a couple hours one day a week,



  • @sabotagethetruth @Minamik

    I was completely ready for P5 to finish up so I can play new games but here I am completed P5 and wondering how to even move on. That game became routine for better or worse. I'm kinda worried about pouring that much time into another game. I think I may do the story in MH, play with friends a few times, then check out. Don't think I have another 100h to put towards a game ever again in my life.



  • @dipset Yeah, you don't need to put that much time into the game. I play it maybe an hour every day or so, it's a great game to do that with. Get in, kill a monster or two, and then stop.

    Im really enjoying the Aloy armor. It might not be the best, but Im having fun RPing and hunting down big monsters with my watcher Palico. Just hope they will add DLCs soon as I can feel the game kinda declining

    @lotias I've been wearing my Ryu set almosy exclusively, even despite the massive stat loss compared to other things I could be wearing.
    Just can't beat the feeling of Hadoukening an Anjanath.

    Also I'm pretty sure they leaked some info about new G Rank hunts.



  • The crossover content is kind of a downer when you can't just apply it as a skin. Don't really want to wear Aloy's set when it gives me all these stats and abilities that are irrelevant to how I want to play.



  • I reached the point where I just need to grind rare drops to upgrade multiple types of the same weapons.



  • Definitely feels like there's been a huge dip in people. When I got in the EZA squad, I thought there'd be quite a few people online, but it's only ever me or maybe 1 other person. Maybe if these decorations weren't such a huge pain in the butt to get the ones you want, more people would still be up for a bit of a grind.

    It's not really that if you think about it, the mass of players for this installment of MH is full of a lot of new blood, some will stick around, most won't.

    Vets have probably already done all there is to do (Personally I burnt out around HR56) and when G rank comes out it'll largely make the investments you've currently made....well useless, which is fine but it's also why fewer people are going to stick around this time.

    Why? Well in the past MH releases were in japan first, dedicated fans/vets would've bought that version, and had months/years of all the content that game had to offer before america got the game.

    Regular players would wait till it came out in the US which would've by then come out with EVERYTHING the japanese players had, which provides....well more longevity for those who waited, as the grind is technically longer since your treadmill is immediately in front of you rather than stopping at High rank 100% optimizing your loadouts, wait for monsters to release 1 or 2 at a time for G rank, and then steamrolling it.

    But this time JP/US are on the same content schedule. I'm personally waiting for G rank to come out, till then I hop on every so often and do some fights, maybe check the event battles, new monsters (When they start coming out). I'm sure that's how most people probably feel right now.

    I didn't expect many of the newcomers to really stick to this game, that includes the allies.

    The multiplayer aspect just doesn't feel as strong to me personally either, the more diverse crowd means way more unfavorable/unfun match ups where people just leech, don't dodge, trip other players, arrive severely underpowered/geared, etc.

    Which led me to play this game entirely solo, which...well to be fair I usually did anyway but in past titles like MH3U when I still streamed on twitch I would run 100s of people through their multiplayer urgent quests (Back when MH had separate quests for offline/online) a day, now? Well, none of my friends really expressed an interest in playing with me and I don't stream anymore, so I had no reason to really mess with it.

    And when you DO find a good group because this is just high rank it's just a 3-4 minute stomp and everyone leaves after, it's just not the same as it used to be when you hosted lobbies in previous titles.

    Maybe it's just me.



  • @zylowolfbane I can't really say anything to past games, since the last time I played was Monster Hunter Freedom way back in 06 when I was studying in Sapporo..what better way to study Japanese? lol

    Maybe it's just my experience, but overall I've had really good luck with the multiplayer hunts, including tempered elder dragons.

    Yeah definitely lucky then lol. Even when I was farming Nerigigante there's always that one guy that gets OHKO'd by a dunk from full health, so of course on a tempered elder it's like that...but for the whole team.

    Worse is Vaal Hazak is easy as pie, people still try to brute force it without dodging >.>



  • Hey can someone invite me to the EZA squad? PM me and I’ll share my PSN name. Thanks! Excited to fight the gold guy with y’all!



  • Wanted to post this here too, Japan has an exclusive event "USJ Blazing Azure Stars!" till Friday this week. It's only available outside of Japan if you manage to join a SOS while searching only for Event Quests (super rare and fill up extremely quickly) or find a Online Session that is focusing on Event Quests (searchable). The only complication with the latter method is alot of people are grouping up to raid Kulve Taroth and not USJ. I found out the "easiest" way to get your Azure Gems is to search twitter for USJ MHW and get lucky enough to join a new session that someone creates to farm the USJ quest. You gotta enter these farming groups quickly cause they will fill up within minutes. There is also someone in Japan selling invites on Twitter, which is reprehensible to me and I ignore it out of principle. Good luck and be patient, it took me a long time just to get 3 gems and you will need 5 for the full armor. And a spare 2 to upgrade the Long Sword (NYI?) Wiki Page



  • Any allies still playing this game? If a EZA squad is still going, I'd love to join.

    Unfortunately, the only way to join the EZA squad is to be invited by Ian himself. And the only time I think he ever plays anymore is during the Weekly Hunts that he is able to attend. Someone else might be able to come up with something for the pc version though?
