Nico nico nii bitches!
40 hours? I'm 47 hours in and I'm still in the village quests. Am I monster hunting right?40 hours.. 40. FUCKING. HOURS! And I've done everything!
Blame me for rushing through the game by just upgrading the Iron Longsword (later Nargacuga) and only farming 2 sets of armor.
Where the hell are my Elder Dragons at!?
And fuck me, it was harder than World for sure, but soloing the Hub quests with subpar gear was still way easier than in GenU.
The rampage quests were a nice challenge though, even if I think that the Basarios gate rushers were a bit bullshit.
Haven't touched multiplayer yet, are there a lot of lobbies around?
Edit: That all said. The gameplay, music and especially the art direction are way better than what they were in World.
I don't even care about the lower textures. The game looks gorgeous.
I'm kidding. I'm making all the low rank armor sets as they become available. Of the 56 armor sets from low rank, I've made 47 of them. It would be all too easy to rush high rank, pull together a decent set of gear and then backtrack for the sake of completionism but playing the way I have been has made most of the fighting I've done challenging and fun. It was rough though fighting 22 Zinogres just for one plate. It's a good thing I enjoy that monster.
It'll be fun when I hit high rank and have to do it all over again for another 50 armor sets.
