[MHWI Build] Power Element Charge Blade - Deep Schnegel II
Hey, how's your hunting?
Last time, I've introduced HBG build to you.
This build requires 3 pieces of Zorah set, 1 Rex Roar which can be forged after MR 70.
But this time, I'm gonna introduce the build which is easy to forge, even before the end of the story.
Today's build is Charge Blade, Deep Schnegel II.
Deep Schnegel II is Power Element Phial Charge Blade.
Unlike MHW, Non-Elemental boost is not so efficient in Iceborne, and Impact Phial Charge Blade as well.
In MHW, Diablos Charge Blade was always the best option. High damage, Minus Affinity, Impact Phial. But in Iceborne, Power Element Phial became much stronger.
Deep Schnegel II is the strongest Power Element Phial Charge Blade in Iceborne now. Even after Safi'Jiva update, Deep Schnegel II is still the best choice for Ice-type.
The most important option for Power Element Phial Charge Blade is Element Attack status. Deep Schnegel II has low attack damage but has basic 480 Ice Attack. It has long-white sharpness so Handicraft isn’t necessary for this weapon.
Since Deep Schnegel II is Rare 10, and doesn’t have its own weapon design, it means Deep Schnegel II is perfect for Augment Equipment.
Rare 10 weapon basically has 5 slots for Augment Equipment, can be increased up to 7 via Extra Slots upgrade. Once you add Health Regen there are still 4 more slots. You can add Element/Status Effect Up upgrade 2 times more. This boosts your Element Attack for 30 each.
Also, Deep Schnegel II has Custom Upgrades as well. You can add Mods which is “Slightly increases element and abnormal status effect damage”. Each Mod is Jyuratodus, Tobi-Kadachi, Rathalos, Black Diablos, Vaal Hazak Mod. Total Element Attack boost amount is 50.
So let’s see. We already added 110 Element Attack more on Deep Schnegel II. It’s already 590 Ice Attack now. It can be boosted even more with Ice Attack skill. Maximum Element Attack in town is 800.
Namielle armors are the best for Power Element Phial Charge Blade. Set bonus skill of Namielle armor is “True Element Acceleration”, it activates if you continually attack a monster, increases elemental damage a lot.
I have no captured screenshot now, but sometimes my elemental damage is going to over 1,000. Against Diablos, the weakest monster against Ice, each Phial damage of Amped Element Discharge is over 270.
The most important skills are Ice Attack Lv.6 (5 is okay if you are not able to fully upgrade your charm), Focus Lv.3, Capacity Boost. Focus makes your Phial charge rate much faster, other 2 are related to boost your damage directly.
Added Guard Lv.1 for increase Guard Point level, Critical Eye & Weakness Exploit & Health Boost is typical Iceborne skills.
I have 3 Tenderizer/Vitality Jewel but if you don’t have enough, you can just remove Health Boost and add Weakness Exploit only.
I’ll add my play that hunts Zinogre & Glavenus in pub. I’m not a professional player so don’t mind about my many mistakes! XD
Add Geologist Lv.1 before you depart to The Guiding Lands
I'm not sure if it's a bug or not, but anyway.
Geologist Lv.1 allows you to gather monster material one more time in The Guiding Lands.
Obtained materials will be doubled if you have Geologist skill.
This is the most important tip for The Guiding Lands. Don't forget to add Geology Jewel!
[MHWI Build] Sticky Ammo HBG - Magda Gemitus Vulcan
Hey, how's your hunting?
Now almost 50% of players who playing Iceborne have entered The Guiding Lands.
Since you entered The Guiding Lands, it's time to change and upgrade your weapons, armors, charms.
The first equipment build I recommend to forge is Magda Gemitus Vulcan, Sticky Ammo HBG.
Early in The Guiding Lands, you'll have no Attack Jewel+ and Rex Roar Braces. Just put any jewels on those slots and change Rex Roar Braces to Diablos Nero or Rath Soul Braces.
3 pieces of Zorah armors will grant to Artillery's Secret, which raises the maximum level of Artillery skill. Zorah armors can be forged with The Guiding Lands Mining Outcrop & Bone Piles, don't need any rare materials, thus it's so easy to forge. These armors have a high defense so it will increase your survivability as well.
Now, look at the Ammo Info. It supports so many Ammo but what I must emphasize is Sticky Ammo, Cluster Bomb and supporting Ammo.
Let's see Sticky Ammo first. The main Ammo of Magda Gemitus Vulcan, basically it has Very High recoil, Very Slow reload. However, if you add 4 Custom Mods of Recoil or Reload, you can reduce one of them to Normal. My recommendation is Recoil because you're gonna equip Razor Sharp Charm. (It will also activate Spare Shot) Since we have Spare Shot, firing next Sticky Ammo without delay is more important than reloads without delay.
4 Recoil Suppressor also reduces the recoil of Cluster Bomb 3, Poison Ammo 2, Paralysis Ammo 2, Sleep Ammo 2 to Low, Cluster Bomb 2 to Average.
Sticky Ammo damage was boosted by Attack Boost, Peak Performance, and Artillery & Zorah Magdaros Essence. Damage of each Sticky Ammo 3 is 145 to 170, depends on the buff. It also inflicts stun very often with Slugger, thus it's very helpful in both solo-play and party-play.
Cluster Bomb, only for solo-play. DO NOT SPAM THIS IN PARTY-PLAY! With 4 Recoil Suppressor, Cluster Bomb's recoil reduced to Low so you can spam it really fast. Fire when the monster is stunned, paralyzed.
Paralysis and Sleep Ammo is also very important Ammo for this HBG. In Iceborne, some flying monsters are extremely annoying because of their non-stop flying. (Especially Shrieking Legiana, Rathalos, and most of all, Kushala Daora)
This 2 Ammo can stop them. Do not use your Paralysis and Sleep Ammo too early. Just spam Sticky Ammo until the monster gets enraged or flies. Shoot them down from the air when they're flying. It will give you and your party more time you deal with the damage.
Sleep Ammo is probably the most important Ammo during party-play. You cannot use a flinch shot when the monsters are enraged, but sleep status immediately removes the enrage state. You can use one or more flinch shots when the monster is sleeping. This is the biggest change to your party (also in the solo-play).
This is the video that I hunt Tigrex in Special Arena. You can watch how this HBG works. Thank you!
Is the game worth it
I want it just idk if I’d play to much so I’m wondering if the game would be worth paying for to try
The Guide of The Guiding Lands Vol.2 - Materials & Region Level
Hey, how’s your hunting?
The second guide of The Guiding Lands is here now! Yesterday, I’ve introduced the basic info of The Guiding Lands. Now let’s see how The Guiding Lands works, and how to grow it.
2) The Materials
The Guiding Lands has 3 types of its own materials. Bones, Ores, and Monster Materials.
First, Bones and Ores.
Check this screenshot from Korean Community. You can see the mines and bones icons on the right-bottom side. It starts from 0, the gauge is getting increased one you gather mines or bones from that area. Once you fulfill the gauge, the Giant Mining Outcrop or Giant Bone Piles are appearing. You can gather only one time from Giant Mining Outcrop or Giant Bone Piles, it will give you Guiding Crystal or Guiding Dragonbone of that area.
If you gather from Giant Mining Outcrop or Giant Bone Piles, the gauge of that area will be halved, other region’s gauge will be slightly increased.
Each region’s Mining Outcrop and Bone Piles has its locations. Here’s the map. (Volcanic & Tundra area is not available on PC yet)
Monsters in The Guiding Lands has their own materials. Each monster has 2 types of materials, normal version and tempered version. If you did not hunt a normal version of the monster but only tempered version, don’t worry. You can exchange tempered materials to the same monster’s normal material via Elder Melder.
Monsters will drop materials via Parts Broken, stun, flinch shot, turf war, etc. They only drop The Guiding Lands materials, not normal materials so if you need just normal materials, The Guiding Lands is not a good choice, but do investigation quests.
Tempered monsters in The Guiding Lands will rarely drop Spiritvein Gem. Threat Level 1 monsters drop Spiritvein Gem Shard, Level 2 drops Spiritvein Gem, Level 3 drops Great Spiritvein Gem. These are one of the biggest reasons we go to The Guiding Lands so do not forget to take dropped materials from monsters.
They also drop Dragonbones and these Dragonbones cannot be obtained from the Bone Pile so hunt as many monsters as possible.
You’ll need many of The Guiding Lands materials to forge some weapons and armors, upgrade charms, Augment Equipment, and Custom Upgrade.
3) Increase the level of areas
To increase the level of each area, you need to hunt monsters in that area. Look at the screenshot again. There is an orange box.
Icons in that box mean where the monsters came from. In that screenshot, Fulgur Anjanath is Coral area monster, Rathian is Wildspire area, Radobban is Rotted area. If you hunt Fulgur Anjanath there, then your Coral Region EXP will be increased.
But the area EXP is not only increased but also decreased as well. This could be quite a complicated system… I’ll explain about this next time!
Iceborne on Steam has pushed hard the number of peak daily players
The release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on Steam has pushed the number of peak daily players in the past 10 days to above 150,000. Making MHW one of the most played games on Steam.
The Guide of The Guiding Lands Vol.1 - Basic Info
Hey, how’s your hunting?
Now many players are entering The Guiding Lands. But The Guiding Lands system is quite complicated to understand. There are so many materials, so many things to do, but the in-game description is not showing many details.
So let me introduce the system of The Guiding Lands.
1) Basic Info
The Guiding Lands has Forest, Wildspire, Coral, Rotted region on the same map. You can enter The Guilding Lands after slaying Shara Ishvalda.
Each region has own level and it grows depends on your activity that gaining Research Points (Collect trails, hunt large monsters). When the level of the region grows, distribution of the monsters on that area grows as well.
Each monster has its own material that can only be obtained here. Augment Equipment and Upgrade Charms require those materials so you need to hunt all monsters in The Guiding Lands, no choice.
When you enter The Guiding Lands for the first time, you can only level up your regions until Lv. 4.
Once you reached MR 49 and cleared the Mission Quest, the maximum level of your regions will grow until Lv. 5. As the same process, Lv.6 at MR 69, Lv.7 at MR 99.
Map 6 & 7 is Forest, Map 8 & 9 is Wildspire, Map 10 & 11 is Coral, Map 12 & 13 is Rotted. Map 1 to 5 is a crossroads. These crossroads are considered as both regions.
The Guiding Lands is an expedition, not a quest so there is no ‘Quest Fail’. Instead of Quest Fail, you’ll have penalized rewards if you faint.
Now let’s see this screenshot from Korean community. You’ll see that red box while you’re hunting. That gauge in the red box is collecting lure. The lure gauge will appear when you do any activities that gain Research Points. Hunt large monsters have the highest possibility of getting lure gauge. Carve tail, parts broken also has possibility.
Now let’s see the orange box. That is a monster that you can lure out. When you fulfill the gauge or hunt tempered monster will give you a lure immediately. The result is random.
You and your party member will share all results. For example, if you hunt any tempered monster, then it will give a lure to all of you. It means you will get 4 lure at once if you hunt with a full party.
You can lure monsters out with the lure that you’ve obtained. Each monster has their own region. If the monster has 2 or more region, you can select the region where you want to summon it.
Monster’s status depends on the area level that you summoned. For example, Zinogre can be summoned in the Forest and Coral region. Suppose that your Forest level is 2, Coral is 6. If you summon Zinogre in the Forest region, Zinogre is just normal Zinogre. But if he was summoned in Coral, he will be Tempered Zinogre. Normal and Tempered monsters have different materials so do not waste your lure.
Well, there is much more info about The Guiding Lands. I will post about them soon!
The Guide of The Guiding Lands Vol.3 - Monsters
Hey, how’s your hunting?
This is the last guide of The Guiding Lands. Now we’re gonna check what monsters will appear in each region in The Guiding Lands.
Check his screenshot again. As I said last time, the orange box shows the monster’s region. In that screenshot, Fulgur Anjanath is Coral area monster, Rathian is Wildspire area, Radobaan is Rotted area. But the hunt doesn’t affect only to that certain area.
Now let’s check this out. (Tundra Region is not on the chart yet)
Some monsters only appear in one region, some monsters appear in more than 2 regions. If you hunt monsters, they increase region EXP of their region.
If you hunt a monster that only appears in one region, you’ll gain huge region EXP of that area and others will be decreased slightly. On the other hand, if you hunt a monster that appears in more than 2 regions, you’ll gain a huge EXP of the monster’s area and a little less EXP of another area and other regions EXP will be decreased a little more.
In that case, for example, let’s suppose that you hunt Pink Rathian in Coral Region. According to the chart, Pink Rathian’s region is Wildspire and Coral. Thus you hunt Pink Rathian in Coral, you’ll gain huge EXP of Coral and less EXP of Wildspire. But the other 3 region’s EXP will be decreased.
Also, you can see the purple named monsters on the chart. Those are Tempered monsters that only appear in that region. Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos also appear in Volcanic Region, but Tempered Gold & Silver only appears Wildspire and Coral. Rajang appears every region but Tempered Rajang only appears Volcanic Region.
On the bottom of the chart, you’ll see the monsters who appear in every region. It says ‘No Change’, but of course Parts Broken, trap, slay or capture grants you EXP of the region where you hunt them.
Important monsters of each region are like this.
Forest: Rathalos (Charge Blade Custom Upgrade - Elemental Boost)
Yian Garuga (Rare 11 weapon Augment Equipment - Affinity)
Scarred Yian Garuga (Rare 11 weapon Augment Equipment - Regen)
Wildspire: Kulu-Ya-Ku (Rare 10 weapon Augment Equipment - Affinity)
Diablos & Black Diablos (Upgrade Charms)
Lunastra (Upgrade Charms)
Gold Rathian (Unlock Gold Rathian)
Coral: Legiana (Custom Upgrade - Elemental Boost for many weapons)
Silver Rathalos (Unlock Silver Rathalos)
Kirin (Upgrade Charms)
Namielle (Rare 12 Augment Equipment - Regen)
Rotted: Radobaan (Rare 10 weapon Augment Equipment - Regen & Rare 12 weapon Augment Equipment - Elemental Boost)
Blackveil Vaal Hazak (Custom Upgrade - Elemental Boost for many weapons, Upgrade Charms)
Brute Tigrex (Unlock Brute Tigrex)
Complex Region: Glavenus (Rare 10 weapon Augment Equipment - Affinity)
Odogaron (Rare 10 weapon Augment Equipment - Regen & Rare 11 weapon Augment Equipment - Attack Boost & Rare 12 weapon Augment Equipment - Elemental Boost)
You see your region level and EXP via checking Guild Card. It supports Resource Info as well so you don’t need to visit The Guiding Lands every time.
Recommended Armor set in Mid-Late Iceborne
Hey, how’s your hunting?
It’s been 5 days since Iceborne was released. Only 11% of players have cleared Barioth, 3.8% of players have cleared Shara Ishvalda on PC.
I guess many players are now heading to over Brachydios & Tigrex step.
Last time, I’ve introduced early-game armors (Jagras, Kulu, Hornetaur) and they are quite useful. However, at this step, those early-game armors are not capable of taking damage anymore. Once you cleared Brachydios & Tigrex, your next opponent will be Velkhana (You’ll fight for a short time). Velkhana’s damage is too powerful to take it with early-game armors.
So I want to introduce some useful armors for mid & late-game to you.
<Mid game - Blademaster>
Head: Rathalos Helm β+
Chest: Odogaron Mail β+
Arms: Brachydios Braces β+
Waist: Odogaron Coil β+
Legs: Odogaron Greaves β+
3 pieces of Odogaron armors will grant Protective Polish skill. Odogaron armors have Critical Eye, Quick Sheathe, Speed Sharpening, it will make your hunt more comfortable. Rathalos Helm grants Attack Boost Lv.2, Brachydios Braces grants Agitator Lv.2. With these armors, you’ll have more Defense and more aggressive skills.
None of these armors require rare material so just keep hunting them.
Handicraft, Attack Boost or Critical Eye charm is the best option for this armor. If you’re a Gunlance or Charge Blade, you must add Artillery and Capacity Boost via Jewels.
<Late game - Blademaster>
Head: Kaiser Crown β+
Chest: Kirin Jacket α+
Arms: Kaiser Vambraces β+
Waist: Kaiser Coil β+
Legs: Anything (Odogaron Greaves β+ or Glavenus Greaves β+ recommended)
If you played MHW, you’ll know how Kaiser 3 set awesome is. Kaiser / Kirin / Kaiser / Kaiser / Yian Garuga is a template Blademaster armor set. But we can face Yian Garuga after the end. So choose your Legs armor freely but Odogaron Greaves (Critical Eye & Quick Sheathe) or Glavenus Greaves (Handicraft) is the best.
But it requires 1 Large Elder Dragon Gem, 1 Fulgur Anjanath Mantle, 1 Brachydios Pallium. It will take a lot of time to get all those rare materials so be patient!
<Mid & Late-game - Gunner>
Head: Nargacuga Helm α+
Chest: Nargacuga Mail β+
Arms: Artian Vambraces β+
Waist: Odogaron Coil β+
Legs: Nargacuga Greaves α+
3 pieces of Nargacuga armors will grant True Razor Sharp / Spare Shot. It is a superior version of normal Razor Sharp / Spare Shot. In the case of Gunner, it has a higher percentage of trigger the skill so that you can spare more Ammo.
Two α+ armors of Nargacuga has less slots, but more Peak Performance level. At this time, you have no good 4 slot Jewels so I choose more Peak Performance level. Artian Vambraces grants you Free Elem / Ammo Up Lv.2. You’ll have more Bowgun loading capacity. If you’re a Bow player, you can change the Arms to others like Brachydios Braces or equip bows that require Free Elemental to unlock its Element.
Gunners have no better options until you enter the Guiding Lands so keep upgrade these weapons until the end.
Iceborne 2020 Roadmap has revealed!
Also, Future releases on PC will be the same time as console since April.
Here's the announcement.
[Tips] Get Iceborne foods & Special Charms
Hey, how’s your hunting?
Iceborne has many new monsters, new weapons & armors, new map, new contents, and of course, there will be new sub-quests and platters.
Did you collect all the foods and cleared all sub-quests? If you’re not, let me introduce them.
1) Platter Ingredients
Two types of platter ingredients were added to Iceborne. Preparation and Trailblazer. Both taps are considered as Brew type platter so it won’t increase your ATK or DEF, but it will grants you some special effects instead.
All ingredients can be obtained via sub-quests, on the field. But same as MHW, there are hidden ingredients in Iceborne.
The hidden ingredients are Snow White & Petalcryst. Snow White is for Preparation, Petalcryst is for Trailblazer.
Petalcryst is easy to get. Visit Hoarfrost Reach when the locale info is “Flourishing: Frozen Foliage”. Head to the West Camp and go to a three-way intersection near Map 2. You can find the low entrance to the basement. There will be a shining Frozen Foliage which contains Petalcryst.
But Snow White is hard to find. Go to Hoarfrost Reach when the locale info is “Flourishing: Butterbur”. Head to the Shipwreck Camp and go to Map 13. You can find some Wedge Beetles near the cliff. Hook to the Wedge Beetles and climb and climb. This is very hard to explain so I’ll add a video that how I climbed the cliff to get Snow White. I made many mistakes so don’t mind, just check the direction :)
Once you collect all Preparation tap ingredients, you can select all Preparation ingredients for Felyne Safeguard. This skill prevents your group from being penalized the first time a member faints. The same effect has Felyne insurance and both skills can be affected together.
This is very important especially when you try to do 1 faint investigation quests. If you and your party member have Felyne Insurance and Felyne Safeguard, 1 faint quest will become a 3 faint quest.
2) Special Charms
There are some sub-quests that give you special charms as a reward. It starts from Housekeeper Felyne in Seliana.
The quest name is “The Purr-fect Room: Stone”, that captures a Tigrex in Hoarfrost Reach. Once you clear the quest, the Housekeeper will give Adamantine Charm as a reward. (It has Non-elemental Boost & Bludgeoner) Then he will give you a next quest.
The second quest is the most important. “The Purr-fect Room: Light Iron”, that captures an Acidic Glavenus in Rotten Vale. Once you clear the quest, the Housekeeper will give you Razor Sharp Charm. It has Razor Sharp / Spare Shot. This charm is one of the most important charms in Iceborne.
Since Nargacuga armors have low DEF and not so good skills, Bowgun players have no choice but this charm. There are 2 more quests that give you charms as rewards, but this second quest is the most important of all.
[MHWI Build] Pierce HBG - Crimson Kadachi Lion II
A few months ago, I've posted about Pierce HBG, Baleful Night (Nargacuga HBG).
At that time, Baleful Night was the best Pierce HBG but now there is a better option.
It's Viper Tobi-Kadachi HBG.
It has the same ATK as Baleful Night, 5% lower Affinity, cannot be affected by Non-elemental Boost.
It looks inferior to Baleful Night, but Crimson Kadachi Lion II can be upgraded via Custom Upgrades in Augment Equipment.
This boosts your weapon's power (ATK, DEF, Affinity, etc) for several times so that Crimson Kadachi Lion II will have more ATK than Baleful Night.
Also, Crimson Kadachi Lion II has Rare 10, thus it has more Augment Equipment slots than Baleful Night, starts to Augment earlier as well.
After Rajang and Stygian Zinogre update, the Guiding Lands will expand its area, thus Custom Upgrade will also have more steps. Crimson Kadachi Lion II will get superior to Baleful Night over time.
It also has more supporting Ammo than Baleful Night. Baleful Night only has Sleep Ammo 1, but Crimson Kadachi Lion II has Sleep Ammo 1, Paralysis Ammo 1 & 2.
Try this weapon. This will not disappoint you!
Having a hard time to hunt? Try Brachy LBG!
How’s your hunting?
Many strong monsters are awaiting after Barioth, and your hunting would get harder.
Some monsters who flies so often like Rathalos, Shrieking Legiana make us really annoying. Other monsters are also getting powerful and faster.
For hunters who are having a hard time against them, I recommend this weapon.
Brachydios Shot II.
LBG made by Brachydios materials. Supports Auto Reload Normal Ammo 1 & 2, Pierce Ammo 1, Spread Ammo 1, Poison Ammo 1, Rapid Fire Sticky Ammo 2.
Others are not important, but Sticky Ammo 2 is the key.
Only a few LBG supports Sticky Ammo Rapid Fire, and Brachydios Shot is the one that can be made in the earliest step in the game.
It upgrades from Barroth LBG. It doesn’t require that many materials, even no rare materials like a mantle.
You can collect all materials from Brachydios, only 3 Azure Rathalos Wings required to upgrade Brachydios Shot I to II. No needed to farm Brachydios Mantle, but you need to get 4 Brachydios Pounder+ so be sure to break both hands before you kill or capture it.
Brachydios Shot II supports many Ammo, but you’ll only need Sticky Ammo 2, Paralysis Ammo 1, and probably Poison Ammo 1. All you need to do is spam Sticky Ammo 2 on the monster’s head. You don’t even need to wound the body parts.
For Bowgun Customize, you can choose one of these 2 options.
1) Evade Reload x 3, Long Barrel
2) Reload Assist x 4
In the case of 1), Sticky Ammo range gets increased so you can spam it from more far distance, in a safe place. But you always press Space twice after you use 3 shots, and it will take so long to reload if Evade Reload was canceled due to monster’s roar, hit, or any reason.
In the case of 2), Sticky Ammo 2 reload level will be reduced to Normal. You can reload while walking so this is more comfortable compared to Evade Reload. It will be hard to use other Ammo, but it doesn’t matter because Brachydios Shot II doesn’t need other Ammo.
Of course, this LBG is not an almighty. Sticky Ammo and its material, Blastnut has so low capacity (9 for Sticky Ammo, 30 for Blastnut). Most of the monsters have more HP than Sticky Ammo’s total damage. You need to visit the camp at least once to refill your Ammo.
Also, Sticky Ammo has a huge recoil after Rapid Shot. You can’t move until the recoil reaction is done, expose yourself to the monster’s attack directly. So shot carefully when the monster is facing you.
About skills, you cannot get many skills at this time. I recommend you to get Artillery Lv.3, Ammo Up Lv.2 for basic skills, and 3 pieces of Nargacuga armor. It will give you Ammo Save, Evade Window, Peak Performance and etc which is very useful to LBG.
Most Successful game among Monster Hunter Series

How to hunt Barioth, the hardest opponent in the early-game
How’s your Iceborne on PC?
Some players have already reached the Guiding Lands, but most of us are still playing the main scenario steps.
There are many difficult monsters in Iceborne, but probably Barioth is one of the most difficult monsters of all.
You will face Barioth after slaying 3 subspecies monsters, Coral Pukei-Pukei, Viper Tobi-Kadachi, Nightshade Paolumu.
Unlink these 3 monsters, Barioth is way faster, way stronger. He almost has no delays between each attack, firing breath, even flies.
To defeat Barioth, you must use Clutch Claw Actions like wounding, flinch shot.
The first thing you should do to hunt Barioth is, break its wings. Once one of any wings are broken, Barioth will tumble on the road after his attacks. This gives you a huge chance of dealing with damage so this is not optional, but essential.
But Barioth’s wings are so hard to deal with heavy damage, even weakness exploit doesn’t affects. To deal with some damage to Barioth’s wings, we need to wound it first. Clutch to Barioth and weapon attack will cause wounds for 90 seconds and makes the part softer.
Once its wings are broken, Barioth will be stunned and he will tumble after the attacks. His attacks are still powerful, but you’ll have many chances to deal with damage.
You’ll face him on wide-field so lure him near any walls so that you can you flinch shot as well. Clutch on his face and shot all slingers when he’s not raged, push him to the walls then he will get stunned. If you did not break his wings yet, this is the biggest chance to do it.
Barioth’s most dangerous attack is high jump. You cannot guard this attack even though you have Guard Up skill. When you see that he’s preparing for the high jump, roll aside immediately or you will lose most of your health and get bound.
Barioth is like Anjanath in MHW. This monster will be the hardest opponent for most of the players, so prepare yourself before you face him.
I recommend you not to take to slow weapons like GS or Gunlance. Of course, skilled players can hunt Barioth with any weapons, but if you are facing him for the first time, you would have so hard time to even just hit him.
My recommendation is Hammer. Hammer has fast move speed, can wound monsters at once, inflicts stun. The first stun will come after full charge attack → Clutch combo → Weapon attack. So wound Barioth’s wings before it, and focus wounded wing when he gets stunned. The wing will be broken before you wake up.
Long Sword is also a good option, but it needs to clutch twice to wound monsters.
Be prepared before Barioth, and Happy Hunting!
How to unlock Raider Ride in Hoarfrost Reach
One of the new features coming out with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is called the Raider Ride.
Of course, you can call the small monsters to ride in a new region, Hoarfrost Reach. Hoarfrost Reach is even larger than Ancient Forest. Without Raider Ride, you’ll spend a lot of time just walking on the snow land.
But there’s a process to unlock Raider Ride.
You should ensure that you’ve cleared Grimalkyne Tribes quests below.
Bugtrappers (Ancient Forest), Protectors (Wildspire Waste), Troupers (Coral Highlands), Plunderers (Rotten Vale), Gajalaka (Elder’s Recess).
Once you clear the Gajalaka Quest until the end, now you are prepared to unlock Raider Ride Quest in Hoarfrost Reach.
Lynian Researcher in Seliana will give you a quest called Cultural Exchange: Hoarfrost Reach. This quest asks you to go to an expedition to Hoarfrost Reach and hunt a large monster.
If you clear the quest, you need to attend the Boaboa council meeting in their lair (Cultural Exchange: Hoarfrost Reach II). After that, Boaboas asks you to hunt a strong monster together, and they give you a quest.
This quest called ‘By our powers combined’, which is hunt a tempered Beotodus. Boaboa assists you to hunt a Beotodus and anyway Beotodus is the weakest monster in Hoarfrost Reach, so it won’t be that hard even the monster is tempered level.
Once all these steps are done, the Raider Ride in Hoarfrost Reach will be unlocked.
Not Raider Ride is the only reward from this quest. You will also acquire Tailraider Signal, Palico equipment. This is not like Palico Gadget. Unlike other Palico Gadget (Vigorwasp Spray, Flashfly Cage, Shieldspire, Plunderblade, Coral Orchestra, Meowlotov Cocktail), Tailraider Signal can be equipped at the same time with one of these Gadgets.
Once you ask your Palico to use Tailraider Signal, Palico will set up something like a smoke bomb. After a short second, Grimalkyne will join your party with his riding monster. This makes your solo-play as a full-party play. You & your Palico, Grimalkyne and his riding monster will hunt monsters together.
Grimalkyne’s equipment depends on what tribes they are. For example, if the Grimalkyne is Protector, they will come with Kestodon and use shields to block the attacks. If the Grimalkyne is Coral Orchestra, they bang the drums to give some buffs. Tribes depend on the environment (Only Coral Orchestra appears in Coral Highlands, Plunderer appears in Rotten Vale, etc), but in Guiding Lands, it will be chosen randomly.
There is one more effect in Hoarfrost Reach. If you called Boaboa via Tailraider Signals, wild Boaboa will not attack you unless you attack them first.
[Tips] Prepare for early-game monsters!
In Iceborne, You will face Beotodus & Banbaro in Hoarfrost Reach.
Once you defeat them, You will return to Astera and face some subspecies monsters (Pukei-Pukei, Tobi-Kadachi, Paolumu)
Pukei-Pukei subspecies is not a big matter, only except its attack is super powerful.
The real problem is Tobi-Kadachi & Paolumu subspecies.
Viper Tobi-Kadachi, subspecies of Tobi-Kadachi uses poison & paralyze attacks together. Once you bitten by its fangs, you'll get paralyzed, hit by the thorns from its tail will cause you poison.
The paralyzing attack is easy to avoid. But the attacks from the tail is so swift, has a wide area and long-range. it causes Deadly Poison, which is stronger than normal poison. It decreases your health so fast. Most of the time, you will faint even before you drink antidote.
If you face Viper Tobi-Kadachi without any preparation, you will spend most of the time to drink antidote and waiting free from paralyzing.
So I recommend you to get Poison Resistance Lv.3 to prevent poisoning. Its attacks from the tail is still strong, but this will make your combat much comfortable against him.
Nightshade Paolumu, subspecies of Paolumu uses sleep attack.
The problem of this monster is, he lefts sleeping smoke everywhere and it lasts so long. Sooner or later, you will realize that you have nowhere to go because of his smokes. Once you step on the floating smokes, you will fall asleep and expose yourself to Nightshade Paolumu's attack directly.
His attacks has low accuracy but strong damage. If you hit directly by it, most of your HP will disappear.
Not only it's dangerous, but also it causes pissing players off. The hunter will stumble for not so short seconds until fall asleep. After they fall asleep, it takes so long to wake up unless the Paolumu punches you to wake up. This causes too long time playing, making players tired.
So I STRONGLY recommend you to get Sleep Resistance Lv.3 to prevent sleep. I emphasize it. GET SLEEP RESISTANCE LV.3. SERIOUSLY.
[Tips] Prepare for Iceborne on PC - Grimalkyne Quests
Only one day left until Iceborne on PC!
I’ve introduced what to do in MHW before Iceborne like gather materials from fields, monsters, or forge some good weapons for Iceborne.
What I’m gonna introduce this time is also very important, the Grimalkyne Quests.
You will face the first Grimalkyne, Bugtrappers tribe in Ancient Forest. Once you face them and add them as an ally, you can make an ally to other tribes as well.
Each tribe has a different way to be an ally.
Bugtrappers in Ancient Forest, they are the easiest. You can face them in Ancient Forest Map 14 or 17. Once you face them, the Grimalkyne will flee away. What you need to do is just keep chasing them. They will become your ally once you reach their lair.
Protectors in Wildspire Waste, you will face the first Grimalkyne in the Map 15. (The way to unlock the Northeast Camp) The Grimalkyne asks your help to find his fellows. Check the map to find cat icons (There will be 3 cat icons on the map). Set Hunter’s Net on your slinger, approach carefully from behind of them. If you approach their face, they will flee and re-appear in a few minutes later. Visit the first Grimalkyne after catching 3 of his fellows, Protectors will become your ally.
Troupers in Coral Highlands, visit Map 10. A group of Grimalkyne with riding Shamos will appear and combat will happen. Defeat them, then visit Map 11. On the edge of the map, the event occurs and they give you a quest that Hunt 2 Tzitzi-Ya-Ku. They will become your ally after clear the quest.
Plunderers in Rotten Vale, before starting the quest, take a Raw Meat. Go to Map 13 to talk to Lynian Researcher. After that, you can find him again on Map 15. The Grimalkyne beside Lynian Researcher will flee away until out of the map where players cannot reach. Your Palico will advise you to keep some distance from them. And then approach to the Grimalkyne again, Palico will give you an advise again to attract them. Put a Raw Meat near them, then Grimalkyne will call his fellows to eat the meat together. This is the way become their ally.
Gajalaka in Elder’s Recess, a little complicated. Receive a quest from Lynian Researcher to collect 10 trails of Gajalaka from any maps. You can find trails where Gajalaka always appears. Once you collect them all, the Researcher gives you another quest. You need to visit Elder’s Recess at night, talk to the Researcher on Map 8, and then go into the Gajalaka’s lair. Press O button to enter the secret camp of Gajalaka, they will become an ally.
This is a little troublesome work, but necessary process to unlock the Raider Ride system in Iceborne so don’t forget this, and unlock all tribes before Iceborne!
Issue of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on PC
Monster HunterWorld: Iceborne launched to play on PC, there is an important problem what players have to notice. When the player open the game and performs a save file, some players get an error message with “no compatible save was found”, and the game just create a new save. The problem is, this new save will overwrite their previous file. Some players who experienced this issue leave a small tip that players are able to recover files through a community-created save transfer toll, and it depends on which mods players are running. The saving data format just changed, this issue may occur to player who have not played the game in a while and just now returning to Iceborne. Players who just going to play Iceborne, needs to create a back-up of their save file before load the game.

Goodbye, MHW! Welcome, Iceborne!
MHW ends today, Iceborne will come soon!
Thank you, good bye MHW!
Recommended Armor set in early Iceborne
Unlike weapons, you better to change all your armors immediately once you start MR quests.
MR monster's attacks are so strong, almost not capable of taking damage with High-Rank armors.
But of course, you cannot get strong MR armors in the early game.
For the players who start Iceborne for the first time on PC, I want to introduce the best armor set in the early-game.
Head: Jagras Helm α+
Chest: Jagras Mail α+
Arm: Kulu Vambraces β+
Waist: Hornetaur Coil β+
Leg: Hornetaur Greaves β+
Don't mind Water Attack Lv.5. It's from my Charm.
With those armors, you'll have some skills above.
Monsters who drop materials are also easy. Great Jagras, Jagras, Kulu-Ya-Ku, Hornetaur and a few of Ores.
They are so easy to forge, grants you a lot of defense. This armor set will be very useful until you make Nargacuga or Glavenus armors.
Early iceborn set (switch axe) (PC)
I do not know what switch axe should i need to farm out and gear i do not have any good gems.
Recommended Fire-type Bow in Iceborne
The bow is always hard for what to choose.
Before Safi'Jiva joins Iceborne in PC, we need to choose one of the Smith Bow.
Probably the most controversial Bow is Fire-type.
In MHW, Anja Arch III was the most popular Fire-type Bow. But in Iceborne, High-Damage & Minus Affinity weapons like Anjanath or Deviljho's are usually so bad.
Their Damage is not much increased, to get 100% Affinity is harder in Iceborne so these weapons are getting unpopular.
Gladly, we'll have Glavenus Bow instead.
It has less Attack & Fire Elemental Damage compare to Anjanath Bow, doesn't have minus Affinity and can be stronger with Augment Equipment.
We have another option, Rathalos Bow but it has Rare 12 which is the worst rarity in early Iceborne. I don't recommend to forge this, but strongly recommend Glavenus Bow.
[Tips] Forge these weapons for Iceborne!
1. Great Sword
After Iceborne release, the most strongest GS is Acidic Glavenus weapon. It has extremely short sharpness but has the strongest damage. Before DLC Monsters join the game, Acidic Glavenus GS will be the most popular GS.
To forge this weapon, you need to make Barroth Tree GS first. We don't usually hunt Barroth that often so visit him to get the materials before Iceborne.
This GS is not for Crit Draw, so if you want to try Crit Draw GS, better to forge Velkhana GS or something.
Gold Rathian LS is the most universal LS in Iceborne. It has high damage, 20% Affinity, long sharpness and inflicts poison.
This weapon starts from Iron Ore tree > Kulu-Ya-Ku tree > Rathian tree. Hunt Rathians & Pink Rathians to prepare this weapon tree.
To face Gold Rathian in Iceborne, you need to reach Guiding Wasteland Lv.6, or reach MR 125 or higher. This is really really late-game of Iceborne so need to be patient.
Luckily, Hammer in Iceborne is very easy to get. Kulu-Ya-Ku Hammer has high damage & 25% Affinity, it perfectly fits for the early-game, and it can be used until the endgame. It has no purple sharpness, but it also means that we don’t need to get Handicraft skills for it.
Since this weapon is rare 10, we can also apply Augment Equipment very fast. If you don’t want to change your weapons often, then Kulu-Ya-Ku Hammer is the perfect answer.
The biggest difference of LBG between MHW and Iceborne is, Rapid Fire of Sticky Ammo is available in Iceborne. Sticky Ammo ignores the monster’s defense and inflicts stun to their heads. But in MHW, Rapid Fire doesn’t apply to Sticky Ammo and it has so huge recoil & reload.
Luckily, in Iceborne, a few LBG has Sticky Ammo Rapid Fire. Deviljho LBG is the most powerful Sticky Ammo LBG. It has the strongest damage but has -25% Affinity. But the Sticky Ammo does not affect by Affinity.
Deviljho LBG fires 2 of Sticky Ammo 2 as Rapid Fire so spam it to the monster’s head to slay them.
To forge this LBG, of course you need to get Deviljho materials, especially Deviljho Tallfang. This is usually out of stock in your box so check the quantity and visit Deviljho.
I think everyone knows Taroth Assault Glutton, the strongest weapon of all in MHW. But it cannot be forged from the smith, only be obtained by Kulve Taroth.
In Iceborne, we don’t need to be suffered by RNG to get Taroth Assault Glutton, because we have Zinogre HBG, Loyal Thunder. It has almost the same Ammo support as Taroth Assault Glutton, but we can forge in from the smith.
To forge this HBG, we need to get Tzitzi-Ya-Ku HBG first. We barely hunt Tzitzi-Ya-Ku so would have not enough his materials. Kill the cameraman to prepare the strongest HBG!
Describing Shara Ishvalda & Hunters both
Me in Phase 1
Me in Phase 2
Actually I died 3 times when I first met him
Hey everyone, I played through World without really nailing down a main and after the Taroth seige I just used those weapons. I have no idea how to pick my main weapon and I dont want to put a bunch of time and energy into grinding a weapon up to master rank for iceborne and not use it and start all over. Does any one have any advice for choosing something or anything else helpful to help ease this transition to Iceborne?

[Tips] What you need to prepare for Iceborne on PC
Iceborne on PC is finally arriving (9th Jan. PST)
People who don't have PS4 can enjoy Iceborne, but Iceborne is much harder than MHW, thus you need to prepare something for coming up Iceborne.
1) Prepare Weapons & Charms
Kulve Taroth weapon is usually the best, but it's kinda gamble. There will be many hunters who failed to obtain the Taroth weapons what they want.
To save those poor hunters, Capcom mercifully added a new weapon tree, "Defender".
It requires few materials (1 Iron Ore to forge, 1 Anjanath Scale, 1 Commendation, 1 Pink Rathian Scale+, 1 Immortal Dragonscale for each level of upgrade), has the most powerful damage, even some weapons are better than the Taroth weapons.
If you failed to obtain the Taroth weapons, you would rather forge Defender weapons than keep slaying Kulve Taroth and roll the weapon drop table.
Also, you need to prepare charms. In Iceborne, many charms that we usually never used are getting very important and useful.
My recommended lists are like this: Each Elemental Charms (Blaze, Flood, Shock, Frost, Wyrmsbane), Ironside Charm, Focus Charm, Handicraft Charm, Earplugs Charm, Challenger Charm, Master’s Charm, Invigorate Charm
2) Prepare Materials, especially from the Low Rank
I think you already experienced that lack of Low Rank monster materials to forge or upgrade weapons, armors, charms
If you played MHW for a long, you’ll have enough High Rank materials but the real problem occurs from Low Rank.
In the case of Ores or Bones, I had a huge problem because of Coral Crystal, Coral Bone (Both mainly from Low Rank Coral Highland), Boulder Bone (Mainly from Low Rank Wildspire Waste). Visit Low Rank maps often and do not get lazy to gather materials from the field.
In the case of Monster materials, I think everyone had a problem because of Jyuratodus Fin. Jyuratodus is the only monster who has materials to forge water-type weapons but we don’t hunt him so often thus he has only 1 threat level, has no own rare materials, etc.
This guy caused a lot of problem in MHW, and so does in Iceborne. Someday, you will surely have a problem about Jyratodus Fin or Fin+, and Gajau Whisker or Whisker+. For the same reason, Tobi Kadachi causes the same problem so visit them often before Iceborne to prevent material issues.
Look at my Item box. 5 Boulder Bone, 1 Coral Bone, 7 Coral Crystal, 3 Gajau Whisker, 3 Gajau Whisker+, 6 Jyuratodus Fin+, 1 Tobi-Kadachi Claw, 2 Tobi-Kadachi Electrode. Jyuratodus Fin doesn’t even remain anymore!
You don’t want to waste your time to hunt Low Rank Jyuratodus and Gajau to forge Iceborne weapons or charms, right? Then remember this, hunt them now. Before Iceborne. Don’t be like me.
So does anyone know a way to speed op the ???Rathian quest cuz its time consuming
Debating on getting the game
I’m just wondering how good the game actually is it seems interesting but I feel like I’d get bored of it cause my friends don’t play it
[Build] Stormslinger, the strongest LBG
Today, I want to introduce Stormslinger, the strongest LBG to you.
1) How to get
Stormslinger is collaboration equipment with Horizon Zero Dawn, only available in PS4.
First, you need to hunt Zinogre in Hoarfrost Reach to get the event ticket. It will allow you to make Stormslinger.
Once you made Stormslinger, you need to hunt Stygian Zinogre in Hoarfrost Reach to upgrade it. You can upgrade your Stormslinger to Adept Stormslinger.
The event quest is available now so do not miss it!
2) Equipment Summary
Stormslinger supports many Auto Reload and Rapid Fire and has Power Source Mod, its own Bowgun Customize parts.
This Power Source Mod is the key.
Let's see how it works.
3) Power Source Mod
Power Source Mod is a Special Ammo of Stormslinger, only available when you add customize parts.
Once you added the parts, the Special Ammo turns into a Storm Bolt from Wyvernblast.
Press the O button to reload Storm Bolt, and then you'll see a different aiming UI.
Keep press O to release the fire. The firing speed and damage will get increased while you press O.
You can fire the Storm Bolt up to 9 shots, but this is the point that you must know.
Until the 8th shot, the damage will keep increasing. As you see above, the screen is getting colored blue while the Storm Bolt level is getting higher until the 8th shot.
But when you shot 9th...
You will get extremely high damage and huge recoil.
You cannot do anything until recovering from the recoil, and this is so easy target to monsters.
So you 'SHOULD' stop firing at the moment of 8th shot, just wait for a second to lower the Storm Bolt level, and then fire until the 8th again.
If only you can control this firing, Stormslinger will give you the strongest DPS compare to other LBG, even all the other weapons.
4) Armors & Skills
Basically full set of Safi'Jiva.
This is only to kill Safi'Jiva. If you want to hunt other monsters, change Partbreaker to Weakness Exploit.
Due to the effect of Safi'Jiva 5 set, you'll always get damaged via your attack. To recover this self-damage, we should add Health Regen Augment to Stormslinger.
This self-damage always makes a red gauge on your health bar, so Resentment is a perfect combination. By the same token, Latent Power is also a good skill for this.
If you successfully dealt damage without sheathing the weapon, Safi'Jiva set skill you give you huge hp recover any moment soon.
For Bowgun Customize, as you see above, Power Source Mod for sure and 2 Reload Assist, 1 Long Barrel.
This is a high risk, high return. So do not try this without practice in the training area, but it will give you a huge return!
Trying to get back into the fray of Monster Hunter but I need to steam roll the campaign for IceBorne. Send help lol
Fun with the LBG.
I love when monsters do all the work.
How to upgrade Safi'Jiva weapons
Safi'Jiva was updated last Friday (JST).
It is similar to Kulve Taroth but quite different root systems.
You can get 3 to 4 weapons when you clear Safi'Jiva quest each.
Once you get the weapons you want, you need to upgrade them.
Let's see how to upgrade Safi'Jiva weapons.
Every time you clear the quest, you'll obtain 4 kinds of Dracolites.
Dracolite Shard, Dracolite, Large Dracolite, Rigid Dracolite.
Each Dracolite will grant 1, 5, 20, 50 Manifestation Points. Once you reach the max point, you can choose one of 3 options and add it to the weapon, or do not choose anything but store potential to the weapon.
Once you store potential to the weapon, it will slightly increase the possibility of something better options appear next time.
There are some rules and tips for the weapons
1) Lv.6 Ability
- Can you see the 5 Star but colorful and has a white coating? That is Lv.6 unique ability. It grants much more bonus stats but we can only apply one unique ability to each weapon.
2) Series Skills
- As you see above, Lunastra Essence is appearing on the abilities tap. Like this series skills, you can also apply only one of series skills. It considered one of the series armor parts. For example, to apply Lunastra Essence skill to your character, you can choose that series skill to your weapon and equip only one more Lunastra armor.
3) To make better abilities appear faster
- It depends on your weapon's Awakened Level and what abilities you choose. Higher Awakened Level you have, higher possibility to get better abilities.
Additional, in that case above, I choose Sharpness Increase Lv. 3 and 6 (Unique), Thus I have that, rerolled options show include Sharpness Increase Lv. 4. The same type but better options have a higher appearing rate when you have lower level of the same ability.
There are 'Add' and 'Upgrade Ability'. In the case of Add, it adds one more option to your weapon. In the case of Upgrade Ability, it will overwrite your previously choose ability.
It's easy to get the weapon from Safi'Jiva, but it will take some time to add 5 best options you want. At least, one same weapon you equipped when you kill Safi'Jiva will be dropped so it's much better than Kulve Taroth.
Be patient and let's make our own best weapons!
