@JaxonH Great Sword in Sunbreak looks really fun! I really should give it a shot in the demo because having a counter seems like it would be about as fun as doing the dodge-into-counterattack combo as Valor GS in Gen Ult.

Yeah unfortunately it's difficult for me to get specific weeks off unless I ask WAY way in advance, so I won't be free to binge Sunbreak on release week, I'll just be available at the usual times.

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

Ugh...I don't know if I can survive another 9 days...I wonder if there are any more maps or if that's it. Hard to say...ah well, I'm guessing we'll get another small trailer with another reveal before release. (happened with Rise, even though the only new reveal there was Apex Rathalos, lol. I'm guessing a similar thing will happen here...)

Ah man they’re releasing a Malzeno creator’s model and they’re re-releasing Gore Magala.

@Joeynator3000
I’m not expecting any more maps, given MHGU only included 1 new map and Iceborn included 2 (one of which was Guiding Lands).

But that still takes the map tally from 5 to 7, plus, once the first title update releases we’ll also have Forlorn Arena, which combined with the one unlocked late game, makes 2 additional arenas beyond the basic one with a gate switch. That should be a fair amount of variety, though a 3rd new map would be really awesome to see.

Hard to say with this one, though...since the maps are smaller than World's. We'll see...I don't know why the Peaks never made it in, but it was hinted at with an in-game painting. Also included paintings where one of them was the Jungle. (the other I think is the Great Desert, so...a Mohran incoming?)

Upgraded my armor (noticed some of the pieces equipped were still stuff you start with the game with) and while I did cart once against Rathalos (ran out of flash bombs but didn't retreat to craft more), Special License Test 3 ended up being a lot easier this time.

So after I've completed the urgent rampage quest, I've unlocked high rank.

I've gotten to end game in PC Rise and now working on hitting the last milestone: the 100 HR one. I don't think being over 100 HR is a requirement to access Sunbreak but it never hurts to just be there I guess. Just a few more days of grind.

Oh, and I'm training my new palicoes in both versions, since I made some that were as close as possible in appearance as I could get to my new cat that a got a couple weeks ago. (First cat ever aaaa)

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

For those who collect Amiibo and disregarding stuff like free in game items etc, just in terms of the actual product of the Amiibo itself, am I better off going for the Amiibo or am I better importing "proper" Monster Hunter merch products of monsters (assuming I am aiming for around the same price).

I did it, I made it to Valstrax on both Switch and PC. I said I wouldn't do it, but going back to the Horn rekindled my love for this game. I know the difficulty debate will never end, but man, I just think the moment to moment in Rise is so damn fun, I am grateful it isn't as hard as previous games in the moment to moment but brutally hard quests exist for those who want it. I think this is the right way to balance the game.

On that topic, I remember doing so much prep on Switch to face Valstrax, but weirdly on PC it didn't seem that hard. I went for an attack focused build, upgraded all my pieces and maxed out defence using decorations and I think it was still around 490. This still seemed to be enough to take at least four hits full on against Valstrax. I remember it hitting like a Nuclear bomb on the Switch.

The DOOTDOOT slide probably did save me a few times, in fairness, the super armour on it is very generous as is the animation cancelling on the horn. I am gonna have to get used to not just sliding everywhere and hoping for the best, it is a bit of a crutch if I am being honest to myself. Come Sunbreak, I wanna use the new skill that replaces.

Although I guess the real test is the advanced version of the quest anyway, but I am very afraid. I have gone back and absolutely kicked the crap out of harder Event versions of High Rank monsters who gave me trouble along my journey, but I just look at those Elder Dragon Events, the various Apex Events and Advanced quests and I am just not sure I am ready to be humbled so close to Sunbreak, when I am sure I will be immediately humbled there to begin with.

Oh and I gotta say, the Valstrax female armour looks terrible but on a male it is so awesome. I usually prefer to make a waifu in games, but I think MH is the one exception, as I think most of the female armour looks so much worse than the male version. It hasn't been mentioned anywhere, but I hope Sunbreak surprises us by dropping some new customisation options - especially beards. World had great beards, why does Rise just have weird chin straps and goatees.

Are there any new monsters in 5 and 6 star hub? 4 star hub feels extremely similar to 1 star hub.

@Grumblevolcano I mean the high rank quests are going to mirror the low rank ones with the same monsters but harder. That's just how monhun is.

That being said there are a couple in the highest ranks that are high rank exclusive.

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

@TeeJay It was more that pre-launch events like the February 2021 Direct showcased monsters I still haven't come across yet (e.g. Rakna-Kadaki) so I went in thinking perhaps these remaining monsters would be spread more equally among high rank.

So uh, I play Charge Blade now I guess!

I saw a video about how Sunbreak fixed the Charge Blade's two big problems (the phial explosion height and the cooldown of loaded sword and shield) and that led to me looking up how to play Charge Blade again, and then I found this really interesting Charge Blade loadout.

It uses the Rajang Charge Blade, which only has green sharpness in exchange for a massive attack boost, which is what this whole set hinges on. Skills are:

  • Guard 4
  • Guard Up 2
  • Attack Boost 4
  • Bludgeoner 3
  • Offensive Guard 3
  • Artillery 3
  • Load Shells 2

Buldgeoner 3 gives a 10% Attack Boost when your sharpness is at green or lower, Offensive Guard 3 gives a 15% attack boost for a little bit when you guard at just the right time, and Load Shells 2 lets me get full charge off of just yellow phials.

The weapon also has the Dulling Strike rampage skill which "Has a chance to increase attack power when your sharpness is green or lower". Dunno how much of a chance it is. MH skills can be frustratingly vague at times.

Anyway counter peak performance is incredible. Full phials off of a very cheap one wirebug counter. With this and Load Shells I can engage with a monster, get full charge for the shield by countering the roar, and then get another full charge with another counter if I want and just keep doing that, it's SO fun.
