Third attempt and I got that damn Zinogre. But it was a really close call :P

How 'bout them Bagels?

Yeah Zinogre has always been one of my hardest fights. He just moves so strangely. He has one attack where he jumps at you can lands on his back. That always gets me to think he's falling over, so I start to commit to a large attack animation. And then he nails me with it! Fighting a Zinogre is like fighting a drunken Kung Fu Master. Good luck predicting what he'll do next!

What I hate about Zinogre is how relentless he is, like he'll just hit you again and again and again never giving you time to breathe or get some licks of your own in, and his flip attack covers so much ground and hits super hard.

And if you hate him here, don't ever try him on MH 4 or 3 Ultimate, believe it or not they actually toned him down for Rise.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Is anyone a little confused about the HR8+ quest where you capture Rajang for a petalace? I did it and unless I just totally forgot I feel like I didn't get an NPC dialogue to get it. It might have been a direct quest reward, but if so I don't know what petalace it is, as I don't see any that look out of place in my inventory.

Similarly confused about the event quest for the unique gesture

Yeah, thought it was messed up too. The Advanced quest in the Village is similar since nobody says s*** after you come back. For the Petalace, just open your box, go to Manage Equipment and it's gonna be there.

Can't say it's a game that really grabs me to be honest, played it for about 30 minutes and I just haven't gravitated back to it yet.

I actually really like Khezu a lot, mainly because it's the only Lovecraftian monster I've encountered in the game. 

Design wise I otherwise like Nargacuga the most.

And if you look a couple of posts back in this thread, you can probably guess that Zinogre is for me so far the most difficult monster (but as I said I've not fought Tigrex in high level yet and on low level I found that to be the most challenging monster).

Well, I don't think Khezu is really scary or anything, which just leaves it as ugly. I cannot avoid the comparisons to Tri, as this was my first MonHun game, and it contains a monster which is on the surface pretty similar to Khezu and that is Gigginox. But Despite the superficial similarities Gigginox was a lot scarier. Maybe the music, the fact that you encountered it only in caves which were a bit creepy to begin with, and the fact that it changed color and it's moveset played a role here. But Gigginox wasn't just ugly, it was creepy and fun to fight. Khezu just looks ugly. Well, my feelings about that at least.

Favourite Monster in general: Goss Harag, Bazel and Chameleos

Favourite New Monster: Goss Harag, easily and Mizutzune as second place. I guess Magna would be 3rd. 

Best returning monster: Zinogre, Chameleos and Bazel. Its hard to pick, they're all amongst my favorite. 

Most improved: Kushala. Its usually a drag of a fight, but this game changed its mechanics and moveset and its very enjoyable now. 

Worst Monster: Jyura. Its just a dull design and an overall boring fight.  

Ugly Ugly: Khezu, I guess? Like, whats the point of Khezu. 

Most Difficult: Teostra. But I do feel its still somewhat easier than usual tbh. In general I dont feel there are legit hard monsters in this game.

Unexpectedly challenging: Tobi-Kadachi, it being the only returning monster that I feel actually got more difficult. 

Unexpectedly easy: Narga, since it no longer causes the bleeing status, it feels easier than before. But its overall the same fight from World as far as moveset goes. 

Scariest: None... Angry Teostra maybe?

Coolest armor set: Magnomalo and Goss Harag. Both awesome. 

First to kill me: Magnomalo in HR

Coolest musical theme: Magnomalo

Hope they add in future updates: Variant monsters aside (which I hope theres a lot) - I really wanna get Namielle. That fight was so very enjoyable.
