I got my first great decorations from tempered elder dragons: a heroic streamstone for augmenting weapons, evade extender, and critical eye.


I triple carted while helping Lemon Buster and Fenriff do the HR49 Kirin quest. You’re never too cool to get paralyzed, then stunned, then struck by lightning in quick succession.


What armor are you hunters wearing? My fav is the Teo/Rath mixed set because affinity builds with sharpness are fun.


Today’s the day I break the cap on my hunter rank 49 cap and hit the tempered monsters

Bloggers wanted: The heel-turn

Last week, in the quick posts of Destructoid's community, we saw the rise and fall of community manager Wesley J. Russow. He rose to prominence with his immutable power, only to see it come crashing down as the working class clambered benea...


Went on a walk with the wife, came home with a guinea pig


What is your favorite weapon model so far hunters? I like that Fire and Ice returned but I love the Odogaron DB, Sin, basically a pair of kusarigamas! Also working on the Decimator Claws, which are the Nergigante DB that look like the old Gore gauntlets.


Still more I want to do, even after uncapping my hunter rank to 29, rolling the credits, and 100 hours of game time. Next come new end game armor builds, tempered monsters, and who know what else after HR49!


NeoTurbo helped me fight Vaal Hazak after telling me to bring Nulberries but this is a game changer.


I’m about to go live on twitch to fight the elder dragons in their assigned quests, blind. Hopefully they haven’t changed too much from 4U and Generations. Link in the comments!


Is Monster Hunter mainstream now? You can rent it at redbox now. Also how is Dragonball FighterZ not at redbox?


btw if you want to join Dtoid’s Palico Patrol squad, I suggest adding striderhoang on psn and adjusting your settings to allow friends to join your session. I can drop by people’s games and invite them without much trouble.


Coming to work was a mistake with a cold. I could be home acclimating to high rank


My first Monster Hunter mentor ship went well! Gave Qalamari finer tips on things like item load outs and sharpness


I like Tobi-Kadachi and Pukei-Pukei an unreasonable amount. What are your favorite monster hunts so far?


Egg deliveries are exciting


Edit1 so there’s trouble connecting to servers or whatever. Just add striderhoang for psn and we can use he dashboard to join each other’s games directly.


So here’s the deal with a Destructoid Monster Hunter squad: I’ll post the code to join my lobby when I get online. People who join will be invited to Palico Patrol. People who join early can help gather other Dtoiders with their own invites.


So hunting squads isn’t some publicly shareable thing I can shout from the mountain tops. It’s something you invite people into when they’re in your particular lobby or instance. So it’s definitely a community thing, not an FP thing.


I still have more followers than Wes
