Apparently Mizutsune's AI got completely re-worked and it's a lot more aggressive now. Also, Glavenus' tail projectile reportedly comes out faster and has better targeting/homing to it and Gammoth's AOE snow attacks got their hitboxes fixed.

And now random geeky calcs that probably concern nobody but myself. With Ultra Crit (which is on the Deviant Astalos set) and the extra 10% to affinity from Energy Charge II the final Deviant Astalos SA has an effective might of 483, taking purple sharpness into account. The Deviant Mizutsune SA, once again taking the same factors into account (except obviously white sharpness this time), gets... 549 effective might in sword mode and 458 might in axe mode. Funnily, the Astalos SA in this situation effectively has a power phial in either mode (50% affinity and Ultra Crit makes crits do 40% more damage, which evens out to a 20% boost).

It's nice to see the rest of the Fated Four get Deviant forms. It seemed weird that only Glavenus got one in Generations.

Even though I preferred 4U to Generations, one thing I loved about Generations was the sheer variety of different monsters. And now XX has an even larger number of monsters.

@Tsurii I doubt they'll have the 50% or higher overall defense unlike the super-level Deviants, though.

@Tsurii Hyper Seltas Queen is a bit of an anomaly among those, you never, ever fight another monster at the same time as a Hyper one, not even in hyper hunt-a-thons, to the point where I thought it was a system limitation, but she kind of breaks that ''rule'' with her mate. And the terrifying speed boosts she gets on her charge and especially tail moves is much scarier than any amount of power.

Kiranico's XX side of things is now in English: https://mhxxx.kiranico.com/ Not everything's translated, but it's a lot more usable than it was before.

@Tsurii It's singing to the tune of 20,000 HP in G-rank-- more than twice the HP of its high-rank counterpart.

When do you think this game will make it over here? Capcom is doing a MH sale that ends tomorrow (I think), and I feel like I should give Generations another chance. >.>

@Joeynator3000 It's been teased for the Switch. I could see early next year, with an announcement at E3 and Japan getting the Switch version around the holidays.

Was it really teased for the Switch? I pointed that out before with the Fire Emblem trailer and I was told that it was done before in past games...

@Tsurii Well, if you're fighting in a team yourself, you can prevent all of that by keeping her drone busy. She can't chain anything without being linked up with him.

Well, since Gen is $20, guess I'll give it another try. But yeah I just got bored once I got to the hypers. (and Amatsu stressed me out....and Alatreon just made me want to throw my 3DS out the window, lol)

@Tsurii @Joeynator3000 While not direct, I still believe there's evidence pointing towards it. 90% sure on the matter-- Capcom themselves said they wanted to grow the brand in the West and were able to "quite easily" bring the current series' engine over to the Switch.

@Tsurii You may want to consider the Thunderlord set for bow usage. Having both Focus (in G) and Marathon Runner, two very useful skills for that weapon, and alternative ways to raise affinity (Antivirus and Latent Power+2).

@Tsurii Polymerization, tho.

Edit: Actually, speaking of Antivirus... how are the Chaotic Gore weapons?

@meleebrawler Exactly the same as in 4U. You're basically required to run Frenzy Fever, but on the plus side that makes them usable on anything if you're willing to use the art slot.

@Tsurii If it's element phial like in 4U, then sure. The only other good ice element phial SA (Arctic Ledge) caps out too early.

@Tsurii ...How on earth did google take "Frostpeak" and come out with "Big Breast King"?

Anyways, with Blunt and factoring sharpness into account, Frostpeak's Liberation has an effective might 427/512 in axe/sword mode. Not that great, really; with blunt, it's just as powerful as the default SA maxed out (422/506). And it has half the elemental strength of the Amber Slash (20 vs 40/48 with phial).

I just noticed a skill that potentially turns ''feeble hits'' (negative affinity) into crits at Crit Boost power. That could be hilarious with worn weapons, which get a massive 380 raw and surprisingly usable sharpness when boosted.

Another little thing I noticed is that apparently setting an art to be SP increases it's cost.

I can't wait to see Alatreon's Charge Blade. But the Tigrex one is just as unimaginatively named as ever.

Edit: What's harder... a super Deviant, or quests where you fail if you cart even once?

Saw Apex Gaming's recent vid of him fighting a Shogun Ceanataur. Looks like he got a couple new moves for G-rank: in the first he sharpens his claws for a moment before lunging forward, and the second has the same start-up but he jumps at you (covers a moderate distance).
