[04:41:01] -!- Coby [Coby!6347dac9@hide-EA88667A.org] has joined #geeknights
[04:54:04] <Coby> Apsup!
[04:54:11] <Coby> Grand Mizuha too strong
[04:54:29] <Coby> All Wind Negate, Earplug with only 3 points away from High Grade
[04:54:33] <Coby> Status Attack+2
[04:54:36] <Coby> Status Crit
[04:54:50] <Coby> only negative skill is Heat Surge, which is negated with a cool drink
[04:55:01] <Coby> nine decoration slots
[04:55:38] <Coby> best matched set
[04:56:44] <Coby> You can easily put Sharpness+1 into it, too
[04:58:26] <open_sketch> beep beep FRC
[04:58:29] <open_sketch> whats the haps
[04:59:29] <Coby> I found out about probably the best armor set in MH4U without going into crazy mix and match, and it comes from a big derpy ass chameleon
[05:00:23] <Coby> http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net
[05:01:57] <open_sketch> whoa
[05:02:01] <open_sketch> monster hunter is kind of awesome
[05:07:07] <Coby> he turns invisible, jumps around the area and steals your shit by flicking his tongue at you
[05:12:20] <Apsup> Cool.
[05:12:25] <Apsup> I'm almost at high-rank.
[05:15:57] <Apsup> Also, is that armor set really so awesome if you don't use statuses?
[05:19:58] <Coby> Well you still ignore roars and wing
[05:19:59] <Coby> wind*
[05:20:41] <Coby> certainly better with status, but you're immune to all of the non damage stuns the monsters have with it
[05:21:16] <Apsup> Sure, but aren't there any other sets with both earplugs and wind negate.
[05:21:20] <Coby> It also makes mounted attack significantly easier since you can mash right on through the roars with the bar not filling at all
[05:21:22] <Coby> Nope
[05:21:42] <Coby> One or the other, this is the only one with both naturally and at such high values
[05:22:16] <Apsup> Eh, still not convinced. I'm liking my HG earplugs and I see how wind negate would be nice, but I'd rather take some deeps instead.
[05:22:28] <Coby> If you're using chargeblade it's pretty good too since most of the good endgame CB are status types
[05:23:14] <Coby> and you still got nine slots to takes its four points of handicraft to ten
[05:23:21] <Coby> with some left over
[05:23:33] <Coby> and that's before you get a talisman and slotted weapon
[05:23:52] <Coby> Certainly better sets for, say, greatsword
[05:24:00] <Coby> where crit draw and punishing draw are king
[05:24:46] <Coby> Oh, and Status Up and Status Crit also increase the proc rate for Blast damage
[05:25:16] <Coby> the explosions won't deal more damage (unless you get Bomb Boost which is 5 slots) but they'll trigger more often
[05:25:51] <Coby> So that makes it a great contender for the Teostra, Brachydios and Crimson Fatalis weapons
[05:36:10] <Apsup> By the way. I just hunted the crabby crab for the first time and got one of those most satisfying finishes where I rodeoed it to ground and finished it with a big hit in the face.
[05:37:48] <Coby> Nice
[05:37:59] <Coby> Finishing on that ultra blast always feels good
[05:38:55] <Apsup> Yup. Much better than ending a fight with a random third hit of normal sword combo, where you first wiffed the first two hits.
[05:40:35] <Coby> Defense scaling is kind of ridiculous
[05:40:56] <Coby> high rank you cap out around 120
[05:41:04] <Coby> err, no, low rank
[05:41:12] <Coby> high rank you cap out around 350
[05:41:23] <Coby> G rank you're getting into 120 defense per piece
[05:42:53] <Apsup> Better keep that gear up to date.
[05:43:33] <Coby> Monster damage does get pretty crazy
[05:43:47] <Coby> I'm sitting around 500 defense at the moment and some stuff in lower G can two-shot me
[05:44:27] <Apsup> Well, that's what they call increase in difficulty.
[05:44:56] <Apsup> mmm. Morning coffee.
[05:45:10] <Apsup> Been awake forever now, but still morning coffee in the morning is important.
[05:47:34] <Coby> the bigger increase is more in the new movesets
[05:48:06] <Coby> rathian gets this kind of rampaging charge that ends with a backflip
[05:48:30] <Coby> and a snap and tail swing
[05:49:05] <Coby> khezu can make lightning trails off of its shield for a pretty good distance
[05:49:19] <Coby> red khezu can flick paralyzing lightning balls behind it
[05:50:03] <Coby> the crab's bubble beam crawl? He can do a U turn while doing it
[05:50:18] <Coby> and tigerstripe zamtrios
[05:50:55] <Coby> no armor mode but can go fat at will to turn himself into a superbounce ball of death and create bigger, stronger water blasts
[05:52:20] <Apsup> Fun fact. Crab's beam crawl got me carted. Thought it was going to be just a short blast like it had done previously and I jumped and it straifed the water in my face.
[05:52:34] <Apsup> I've also taken a multiple firballs in the face when jumping.
[05:53:30] <Coby> I did not expect the crawl part of the attack, up until then he had been nearly identical to his Unite version but the animations were smoother
[05:53:51] <Coby> but then he activated his crab powers of sideways walking and I ate the attack
[05:54:31] <Apsup> Never played enough unite to even see the crab.
[06:01:14] <Coby> Oh boy, just got my urgent to G2
[06:03:20] <Apsup> You've been busy.
[06:03:21] <Coby> but first I'd like to make The Haboob
[06:03:37] <Coby> Yeah
[06:03:58] <Coby> HR61, some G1 quests clear, apparently enough to earn my urgent
[06:04:03] <Apsup> I though I've been playing too much with my 60 hours of playtime in few weeks, but apparently other's are addicted as well.
[06:04:24] <Coby> I have a friend over HR100
[06:04:56] <Coby> though he hasn't had much else to do since he has been bedridden for the past couple weeks
[06:06:03] <Apsup> I went and bought SMT 4 as it was on sale, but haven't been able to put more than few hours in it, as everytime I pick up 3DS I just want to hunt monsters.
[06:07:01] <Coby> I got PQ a while back and tried to rush it a little because I knew that'd be the case for me
[06:07:21] <Coby> got to the final floor of the third dungeon
[06:07:30] <Coby> SMT4 is good, though
[06:07:33] <Coby> but monster hunter
[06:07:48] <Apsup> PQ is definitely in the list of 3DS games to get, but it's time is later.
[06:08:15] <Apsup> MonHu is so addicting. Was talking with my firend and realized that already it's cost per hour has been quite good for a game.
[06:08:39] <Apsup> If I keep going with it, it alone will be almost worth of a 3DS.
[06:12:51] <Coby> 4U in particular does a lot to draw out stuff by having HR unlocked quests
[06:13:54] <Coby> after you beat the HR7 urgent you get rank unlock and your accumulated points are added
[06:14:00] <Coby> I came out of it at HR48
[06:14:08] <Coby> and you get new high rank quests into HR70 or 80
[06:14:15] <Coby> and G rank ones well beyond that
[06:14:34] <Coby> the first of those ones being a half-molted Gore Magala
[06:54:00] <Coby> I think I'd be further along if I didn't refuse to play with random people
[06:56:48] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!Brad@hide-C016446.static.tpgi.com.au] has joined #geeknights
[06:56:50] <Apsup> I've barely played online. I want to beat things on my own merit on my own. (slave cats allowed)
[07:42:50] <Apsup> Doing the urgent for hunting Dah'ren Mohran. No idea what I'm doing, just trying to shoot it with everything I got. Then the game is like "entering the final shodown" and I'm like "what is that?" Then the game shows me what it is.
[07:42:57] <Apsup> This is the greatest game.
[08:10:54] <Coby> I got disconnected super early in a tiger zimzam fight
[08:11:01] <Coby> I pulled through without a KO
[08:11:16] <Coby> and now I've gotten Haboob
[08:11:32] <Coby> which needs Black Diablos things to upgrade
[08:12:09] <Coby> trying to get my skill set back while lacking a slot because of weapon shift
[08:12:30] <Coby> Evade+3, Sharpness+1, Heat Cancel, Speed Sharpening
[08:25:43] <Coby> got it
[08:57:48] <Coby> Here you go Apsup, an all-purpose deeps set for the endgame
[08:57:50] <Coby> Rebellion Z Helm Grand Divine Ire Robe + Razor Jewel 3 Kujula Grip Grand Divine Ire Obi Vangis Greaves X Edgemaster (Sharpness+1 and Attack Up Large) Razor Sharp and 6 free slots all before you even factor in talisman or weapon.
[08:58:17] <Coby> that did not space out how I wrote it down
[08:58:23] <Coby> Rebellion Z Helm
[08:58:41] <Coby> Grand Divine Ire Robe slotted with Razor Jewel 3
[08:58:46] <Coby> Kujula Grip
[08:58:56] <Coby> Grand Divine Ire Obi
[08:59:01] <Coby> Vangis Greaves X
[08:59:15] <Coby> it gives you a combination skill that gives attack up large and sharpness+1
[08:59:26] <Coby> and razor sharp
[08:59:41] <Coby> six slots to do whatever you want with
[08:59:51] <Coby> plus whatever you get from your talisman and weapon

[09:04:12] -!- Bronz|work [Bronz|work!walter@hide-66DA6620.emea.ibm.com] has joined #geeknights
[09:04:16] <Bronz|work> Good morning!
[09:06:34] <Apsup> Mornin' Bronz.
[09:06:50] <Apsup> I'm gonna kill an lightning unicorn -thing.
[09:11:47] <Coby> Good luck
[09:11:56] <Bronz|work> Sounds mean.
[09:12:02] <Coby> Damn thing's got high damage resist all over except the face
[09:12:02] <Bronz|work> Did the unicorn have it coming?
[09:12:28] <Coby> it does lightning stuff for no reason
[09:14:23] <Apsup> Ye, it's such a small thing and then big-huge axe just bounced off it's back.
[09:14:43] <Bronz|work> MO-HUN?
[09:14:55] <Apsup> Also, I've found that desire sensor works on things other than just drops. Like when the mosnter aggroes on me instead of cats and what moves they use.
[09:15:03] <Apsup> Yes.
[09:19:01] -!- Demisedulous [Demisedulous!half-ass@9C29E651.5657E15C.2465FCBF.IP] has joined #geeknights
[09:19:44] <Bronz|work> Welcome, Demisedulous.
[09:19:57] <Demisedulous> Eyyy, if it ain't Bronz
[09:20:06] <Bronz|work> I always wanted to play Monster Hunter, but I don't really have the time.
[09:20:13] <Demisedulous> I figured when I started staying up til 10 am, our paths would cross again
[09:20:21] <Bronz|work> Hurray!
[09:20:29] <Bronz|work> I do like meeting you.
[09:20:36] <Demisedulous> Not that much of a hurray for me :c
[09:20:47] <Demisedulous> Back pains have given me insomnia
[09:20:58] <Bronz|work> Yeah, that's quite a non-hurray.
[09:21:06] <Apsup> D:
[09:21:11] <Apsup> Backpains suck.
[09:21:13] <Demisedulous> and I'm too wuss to down drugs to help me sleep cuz then in the morning I can't even walk
[09:21:48] <Bronz|work> Y'know who's good at fixing back pains? Scorpion from MK.
[09:21:56] <Bronz|work> Hell just remove that pesky spine for you.
[09:22:04] <Demisedulous> One problem
[09:22:05] <Demisedulous> How do I
[09:22:05] <Coby> I thought he only compounds them
[09:22:08] <Demisedulous> get over there
[09:22:10] <Demisedulous> EYOOO
[09:23:13] <Bronz|work> I put my pastry and my runny egg on the same plate, thinking the egg wouldn't be runny. #breakfastproblems
[09:25:52] <Coby> But the point of runny eggs is to get yolk on everything
[09:25:56] <Coby> it's what makes it so good
[09:26:16] <Bronz|work> The cafeteria makes them fairly runny, but then they're under a heatlamp for forever.
[09:26:24] <Bronz|work> So the 'runny' eggs are just solidly cooled.
[09:26:29] <Bronz|work> *cooked
[09:26:36] <Bronz|work> That's very different.
[09:26:44] <Coby> That doesnt sound too good
[09:26:47] <Coby> eggs should be fresh
[09:26:54] <Bronz|work> Idealy, yes.
[09:27:06] <Bronz|work> Today, I got them right as they were brought out, I guess.
[09:27:09] <Bronz|work> So these are runny.
[09:27:33] <Bronz|work> ... appreantly, my second egg wasn't.
[09:27:43] <Bronz|work> That's Ok, I can eat the runny egg with this one.
[09:29:17] <Bronz|work> I doubt you guys are interested in my breakfast though.
[09:29:38] <Demisedulous> Eggs are cool
[09:29:40] <Demisedulous> easy to cook
[09:30:01] <Demisedulous> Feels weird though
[09:30:34] <Demisedulous> Sitting in an empty basement suite by yourself, staring at a few eggs for 10 minutes while they sizzle
[09:30:55] <Demisedulous> I wonder if I can prepare eggs so they can be added to microwave ramen, that'd be delicious
[09:33:53] <Bronz|work> Can't you just crack it over the top?
[09:34:12] <Demisedulous> That's what they do
[09:34:14] <Demisedulous> isn't it :O
[09:34:24] <Bronz|work> Basically, yes.
[09:34:31] <Coby> It is
[09:34:44] <Bronz|work> Not sure if the egg will behave properly in a microwave, but I don't see why not?
[09:34:52] <Demisedulous> damn
[09:35:00] <Demisedulous> I'll try it out tomorrow
[09:35:11] <Demisedulous> Ramen is my lifeblood
[09:35:24] <Demisedulous> so any way to make it better is mondo cool
[09:35:47] <Bronz|work> I'm almost out of packets of Ramen, so I'll have to order another box from Amazon...
[09:36:39] <Demisedulous> Ohh, you get them from amazon?
[09:36:46] <Demisedulous> How much cheaper are they there?
[09:36:50] <Bronz|work> Yes, of course!
[09:37:07] <Bronz|work> How much? I dunno, I live in Europe where each country has wildly varying prices for stuff
[09:37:24] <Bronz|work> I've been in stores where Ramen is 1 euro per packet.
[09:37:28] <Demisedulous> holy
[09:37:31] <Bronz|work> Which is crazy expensive.
[09:37:36] <Demisedulous> yeah, nearly 2$
[09:37:57] <Demisedulous> Ramen here is like, 12 cents per packet
[09:37:59] <Bronz|work> But that's the expensive side.
[09:38:03] <Coby> anything more than fifteen cents is ridiculous
[09:38:04] <Demisedulous> but it gets upped a ton in stores
[09:38:24] <Bronz|work> Buying bulk on Amazon is pretty cheap though.
[09:38:41] <Bronz|work> As long as you can mitigate the shipping cost by buying a bunch of other stuff too.
[09:40:33] <Demisedulous> It's my dream to eat a chip right off a factory line
[09:40:48] <Demisedulous> and to cook 100 packs of instant ramen in a hot tub
[09:41:32] <Demisedulous> Sleeping on a bed made of chocolate would be so awesome too
[09:41:42] <Bronz|work> I've worked in a rice cake factory. I got to eat ricecakes right of the factory line
[09:41:48] <Demisedulous> man I hate this diet
[09:42:03] <Demisedulous> They taste any different?
[09:42:07] <Demisedulous> Were they flavoured?
[09:42:09] <Bronz|work> Slightly warmer...
[09:42:14] <Demisedulous> that's hot
[09:42:15] <Demisedulous> literally
[09:42:15] <Bronz|work> Some were.
[09:43:12] <Bronz|work> So at work we have an idea log. My colleague send me an idea, which is basically "We need to improve quailty of our work".
[09:43:24] <Bronz|work> And the idea is "Aske me for my presentation on how to do this".
[09:43:32] <Bronz|work> I can't endorse that!
[09:44:06] <Coby> We can do the work better, ask me how?
[09:44:33] <Coby> I don't think I understand
[09:44:44] <Demisedulous> Prolly some inter work related shenanigans
[09:44:46] <Bronz|work> Right, exactly!
[09:44:47] <Demisedulous> to get in good standings
[09:44:55] <Coby> but it's nearly 2am so I'm not exactly thinking straight
[09:47:39] <Bronz|work> I have no idea what his actual idea is.
[09:47:48] <Coby> I learned that MH4U was built to be played with surround sound compatible headphones
[09:47:51] <Coby> which I don't have
[09:48:02] <Coby> so I don't get to enjoy positional audio cues
[09:48:29] <Coby> or hear monster sounds off in the distance as I near area transfer points
[09:48:39] <Bronz|work> If you mix it properly, can't you get the same thing from Stereo?
[09:48:51] <Coby> it's a 3DS game
[09:49:10] <Coby> I have nothing to connect to speakers
[09:49:16] <Coby> Oh god I miss bass in this game
[09:49:25] <Coby> Khezu roar was all bass and it was amazing
[09:50:13] <Coby> with nice speakers you could hear every component animal noise that formed the monster roars
[09:50:25] <Demisedulous> http://puu.sh Which one are you, Bronz?
[09:50:56] <Bronz|work> This looks like a reference I don't understand.
[09:50:58] <Demisedulous> Always havin that work tag, you must be in some kinda office
[09:51:06] <Coby> Raths are a cross of low pitch red eagle cries and mountain lions, with some pitch changes
[09:51:07] <Bronz|work> Definetly an office.
[09:51:39] <Coby> the mohrans are crocodile and hippo grunts
[09:53:58] <Coby> I don't know what that is, but my co-workers definitely see me as the middle one
[09:54:51] <Bronz|work> I guess I'm the one on the right?
[09:54:57] <Bronz|work> (Our right, Mr. Cloud man)
[09:56:03] <Coby> lefty looks like a bit of a sadsack
[09:56:20] <Bronz|work> He misses clippy.
[09:56:34] <Coby> I can't tell if middle is supposed to have a displeased look or a moustache
[09:56:52] <Coby> maybe both
[09:57:04] <Demisedulous> I'm trying to find the clip on youtube
[09:57:06] <Demisedulous> it's really cute
[10:07:00] <Coby> https://www.youtube.com
[10:07:07] <Coby> derp chameleon
[10:07:11] <Coby> why is your music and gear so good
[10:09:09] <Coby> most creatures that can knock you away do so by flying or beating their wings, he has a wide, flat tail that he beats against the ground to spread spores or something
[10:10:05] <Apsup> Coby, don't you even own headphones or earbuds or something?
[10:10:48] <Coby> nah
[10:10:53] <Demisedulous> http://puu.sh
[10:10:54] <Demisedulous> woops
[10:10:58] <Demisedulous> https://www.youtube.com
[10:10:59] <Demisedulous> here
[10:11:27] <Coby> used to, they got lost in a move
[10:12:57] <Coby> Is Van Damme's stuff lost footage from an Area 51 game?
[10:14:31] <Coby> It really feels like an old arcade shooter's live action footage
[10:17:36] <Demisedulous> It's from a game called "Van Damme'd if you do, Van Damme'd if you don't"
[10:17:46] <Demisedulous> Note: Not actually
[10:25:52] <Apsup> I don't think I've ever shown any of these here, but when we have lan parties then usually involve little competitions in the art of photoshopping (I guess you could do original work, but combining stuff found from google image seach is much more fun)
[10:26:00] <Apsup> http://i.imgur.com
[10:26:07] <Apsup> Theme was to combine movies.
[10:31:24] <Demisedulous> hue
[10:33:16] <Demisedulous> You ever go on r/photoshopbattles?
[10:35:04] <Apsup> no.
[10:35:17] <Bronz|work> I prefer http://www.reddit.com
[10:35:56] <Demisedulous> http://www.reddit.com
[10:36:23] <Demisedulous> People post a picture and the comments have photoshops of that picture
[10:36:25] <Demisedulous> usually funny
[10:37:05] <Demisedulous> http://i.imgur.com
[10:37:21] <Bronz|work> hehe.
[10:37:39] <Apsup> Ye, I could do that. But keeping it in the lan paries twice a year, keeps it fresh.
[10:38:28] <Apsup> Actually it's never fresh, like 90% of the time I have good old arnold in there one way or another.
[10:43:58] <Coby> You got a long line of Twins sequels then?
[10:44:06] <Coby> It feels like the most obvious joke posters to make
[10:47:36] <Apsup> Last lan we had a same theme of combining movies, because person in charge was lazy this time, here's my entry.
[10:47:41] <Apsup> http://instanssi.org
[10:49:40] <Coby> There is no picture of Monsieur Gore online, and I don't have a New3DS so I can't screenshot it
[10:50:43] <Coby> it is like a rocket with four spear heads with Sazabi's shield but made from seltas parts
[10:51:42] <Coby> and a dragon named Kushala Daora's weapons all look like metal sculptures
[10:51:52] <Coby> his charge blade's shield looks like a seaturtle
[10:52:00] <Coby> and it's called Daora's Thwartoise
[10:52:54] <Bronz|work> ...
[10:53:44] <Coby> that is amazing and you know it
[10:54:10] <Bronz|work> I'm gobsmacked.
[10:54:19] <Coby> and I guess Gore weapons are always poorly structured foreign words to make them "off"
[10:54:56] <Apsup> The picture I have here is tiny, but I guess it looks like seaturtle.
[10:55:13] <Coby> so the japanese one has engrish names like "(katakana for strength) of Ruin"
[10:55:32] <Coby> and the final upgrade was THE OPPRESSOR
[10:55:41] <Apsup> I'm currently rocking Elendskraft.
[10:56:02] <Coby> and in the english one it's Elendskraft, Unheilskraft, L'Oppresseur
[10:56:10] <Coby> since they shift to french for Shagaru
[10:56:30] <Coby> and the chaotic magala weapons are like Elends/Essors
[10:56:51] <Apsup> At least they have some kind of reasoning there. In EO 4 I'm slighly annoyed that one of the classes is called Landsknecht instead of just Knight, for no reason.
[10:56:51] <Coby> the names of two forms of the normal weapon line mashed together
[10:57:37] <Coby> light bowgun probably got the best name? Loosely translates to "Rot Slinger"
[10:58:06] <Coby> Faulnisschleuder
[10:58:16] <Bronz|work> Though, to be fair, landsknecht is slightly different.
[10:58:33] <Bronz|work> Isn't that garbage slinger, rather than rot?
[10:59:13] <Coby> I've heard it said rot slinger, garbage hurler, decay hurler and any mix of those
[10:59:30] <Coby> I like rot slinger the most
[10:59:39] <Bronz|work> That's fair.
[11:00:19] <Coby> longsword - stahlfakt
[11:00:43] <Coby> S&S - Sucher-Ankh
[11:00:55] <Coby> the shield looks like the eye of an ankh
[11:03:10] <Coby> THE BOOST became L'Essor
[11:03:26] <Apsup> Quest: Afraid of the Dark. Objective: Hunt all large monsters. This sounds like happy happy fun times ahead.
[11:03:41] <Coby> gonna be honest, I like how cheesey THE BOOST is
[11:03:58] <Coby> Oh man, wait until you get Caravaneer's Challenge
[11:04:11] <Coby> Frenzied Zinogre, Golden Rajang, Shagaru Magala
[11:04:15] <Coby> in Shagaru's arena
[11:04:21] <Coby> the first two spawn at the start
[11:04:29] <Coby> and you got ten minutes before shagaru spawns
[11:05:12] <Coby> Bring smokebombs, with those up you gotta be in the monster's face for it to first notice you
[11:06:08] <Coby> you got a favorite punnish weapon name?
[11:06:15] <Coby> I'm pretty fond of Numbingbird from 3U
[11:13:17] <Apsup> Nah. I don't really pay that much attention to stuff like weapon names, and definitely anything hasn't caught my eye.
[11:24:31] <Apsup> "Ok, I don't have shield charged, but guard pointing should absorb some of the damage, right. I think I can time it with swipe and then change, here I go."
[11:24:35] <Apsup> Mistimed it.
[11:24:50] <Apsup> Instead the swipe hit charging Gore in the face and killed it.
[11:31:03] <Coby> get that horn break?
[11:31:16] <Coby> that was my biggest problem from 4 to 4U
[11:31:28] <Coby> monsters had more health or defense before, so it was easier to break all their parts
[11:31:35] <Coby> even if that meant somewhat longer fights
[11:31:42] <Bronz|work> I thought breaking parts was good?
[11:32:02] <Coby> Gore could easily go full enrage two or three times in a fight giving you plenty of opportunities to get those feelers
[11:32:17] <Coby> It is good, and it is crucial to getting some drops
[11:32:31] <Coby> but they wanted 4U to be more approachable because 4 was hard
[11:32:38] <Coby> so they dropped monster defenses a bit
[11:32:44] <Coby> though not the damage they deal
[11:32:56] <Coby> which is a nice thing for people like me who have been around the series for a while
[11:33:15] <Coby> 4's high rank was harder than 3U's G rank
[11:33:37] <Bronz|work> That means nothing to me, what's a 'G' rank anyway?
[11:34:34] <Coby> So the main series is numbered, but then in japan all of the definitive releases are the "G" edition
[11:34:49] <Coby> G quests are the new content, all of them harder than everything in the game leading up to them
[11:35:05] <Coby> monsters are faster, hit harder and have new movesets
[11:35:16] <Apsup> I don't think so. Smaked him in the face a lot, but I think he keps his feelers.
[11:35:30] <Coby> they'll introduce subspecies with even further changed movesets and weaknesses/environments
[11:35:32] <Apsup> I start to care about drops after I start farming for specific piece of gear.
[11:36:09] <Coby> Can only break his horns when he's got them pointed up, really helpful to bring a shock trap along to get time to just smash his face with an AED or something
[11:38:27] <Apsup> I could have also tried to mount him and smack his face after that.
[11:38:47] <Coby> Woo! Fully upgraded my kitchen
[11:39:07] <Coby> next up is unlocking all the trades
[11:39:34] <Coby> I thought that was a nice feature, let you trade monster parts to get the gear of stuff that can't show up in this entry because of the mechanical changes
[11:39:39] <Bronz|work> Imagine if you could upgrade your kitchen by beating the crap out of animals in real life.
[11:40:10] <Bronz|work> Which one do I attack for more counter space?
[11:40:29] <Coby> they explain it away with "this monster's blocking my supply route" or that the parts of these monsters make for good utensils or whatever
[11:40:48] <Coby> like a fire breathing wyvern's glands are needed to make a larger grill
[11:41:06] <Bronz|work> I dunno, sounds fine to me.
[11:41:18] <Bronz|work> Use every part of the monster, right?
[11:41:31] <Apsup> Looking at the drop rates of stuff, no.
[11:41:52] <Coby> I guess the town does, we sure don't
[11:41:54] <Apsup> "This piece has a scrath on it, I can't use it"
[11:42:10] <Bronz|work> Well, use SOME parts of the monster anyway.
[11:42:14] <Coby> skins, claws/fangs, whatever they use to produce their elemental attacks
[11:42:29] <Bronz|work> That monster's pretty big, you have enough if you just knock out a tooth or two.
[11:42:29] <Coby> also their kidney stones
[11:42:42] <Coby> or digestive stones
[11:42:43] <Coby> I dunno
[11:42:46] <Bronz|work> You can kill another if you need it's eyes.
[11:42:56] <Coby> apparently the eat rocks that are beaten down into gems
[11:43:06] <Coby> that get into their tail somehow
[11:43:23] <Coby> they made a physical display of a monster "plate"
[11:43:40] <Coby> which is the low level rare item for stuff
[11:47:10] <Coby> they make a lot of displays for Hunter Festa
[11:47:16] <Coby> http://images.sgcafe.net
[11:47:55] <Apsup> It's kinda amazing that there are already ridiculous amounts of stuff to do in MonHu and then Capcom is like, here take some free dlc.
[11:48:06] <Coby> http://japandaman.com
[11:48:16] <Coby> every MH game has free dlc
[11:48:19] <Coby> it's all on the cart
[11:48:21] <Apsup> Although I guess that many of the monsters and weapons and armors being recycled through games helps.
[11:48:41] <Coby> it's to replicate the event quests of the console versions
[11:48:55] <Coby> which were server event type stuff on a monthly schedule
[11:49:44] <Coby> only one I think is lame is that we're going to have to wait a couple months til we get silver rathalos and gold rathian G rank fights
[11:49:59] <Coby> they are the source of the best fire weapons in the game
[11:51:01] <Coby> http://images.sgcafe.net
[11:51:16] <Coby> http://fast1.onesite.com
[11:51:19] <Coby> I'd steal that
[12:14:36] <Coby> 8 ranks til Fatalis
[12:14:37] <Coby> I think
[12:14:53] <Coby> 70 might be strong Teostra
[12:14:57] <Coby> and 75 or 80 is Fatalis
[12:18:55] <Apsup> It seems that I have done all low rank caravan quests I have currently unlocked. Still quite a few 3 star gathering hall quests left.
[12:19:29] <Coby> You unlock more low rank caravan quests at HR 5, 6 and 7
[12:19:50] <Coby> they're "high rank" quests where the monsters are scaled to be more doable for a solo player
[12:20:08] <Coby> moreso than the Dundorma high rank caravan
[12:21:35] <Apsup> Ye, I know there are more the checkmark is silver, but at least there aren't anything that I can do now.
[12:21:53] <Coby> Yeah
[12:22:08] <Coby> Oh, the cathar one is easy to miss
[12:22:19] <Coby> you have to go talk to the guru in his chambers
[12:22:34] <Coby> and there's no "go talk to him there" marker like there is for most locations
[12:25:37] <Apsup> Checked the guru. He doesn't have anything right now at least. He wan't even there.
[12:28:01] <Coby> You can tell if he's in that cave thing if he's not tilling the field
[12:28:23] <Coby> I don't think any npc replaces him there?
[12:29:08] <Coby> Time for some sleep
[12:29:33] <Coby> tomorrow... probably dundorma quest clearing
[12:53:56] -!- Coby has quit [Ping timeout: 181 seconds]
[13:52:52] <Bronz|work> I'm slightly bored.
[14:01:23] <Demisedulous> Me too
[14:01:26] <Demisedulous> It's 6 am
[14:01:32] <Demisedulous> I need to be up in 3 hours
[14:10:40] <Bronz|work> Well... great.
[14:10:45] <Bronz|work> Here it's slowing.
[14:10:51] <Bronz|work> A true Christmas miracle!
[14:11:11] <Demisedulous> err
[14:11:15] <Demisedulous> snowing or slowing
[14:11:39] <Bronz|work> Snowing.
[14:11:47] <Bronz|work> But y'know, can't walk very fast because of it.
[14:11:56] <Bronz|work> Man, this mornign was super slippery.
[14:13:57] <Demisedulous> ewwwwwwww
[14:14:00] <Demisedulous> snow
[14:14:03] <Demisedulous> THat horrid stuff
[14:14:12] <Demisedulous> It's so nice being away from it
[14:18:24] <Bronz|work> I like snow, but nobody I talk to seems to like it either.
[14:20:47] <Demisedulous> I used to like it when I was young
[14:20:50] <Demisedulous> and played in it
[14:21:07] <Demisedulous> Then I had to wake up at 6 am every day and spend 3 hours on a bus
[14:21:21] <Demisedulous> during -40 c temperatures
[14:21:24] <Demisedulous> fuck that shit
[14:21:34] <Demisedulous> I died one morning and was revived when we arvied
[14:22:23] <Demisedulous> Really weird, freezing to death
[14:22:42] <Demisedulous> The bus heaters were broken and it was -40 c
[14:23:10] <Demisedulous> It started in my stomach, my fingers and feet were basically not there
[14:23:19] <Demisedulous> but my stomach
[14:23:33] <Demisedulous> it felt like it was trying to eat itself to stay warm
[14:23:51] <Demisedulous> kind of a icy hot burning sensation
[14:24:34] <Bronz|work> Whoa dude.
[14:25:14] <Demisedulous> My friend who actually dressed properly told me I was just huddling in a corner for 2 hours, not even moving
[14:29:01] <Demisedulous> One time I got the bright idea to ride my bike to the bus stop, so I can spend more time inside my house by the fire
[14:29:09] <Demisedulous> Forgot I don't have gloves
[14:29:33] <Demisedulous> and almost froze my fingers off
[14:29:49] <Demisedulous> My bus driver was a sadistic cunt, too
[14:29:53] <Bronz|work> Well, the real problem here is not the snow, but the -40C you live in.
[14:30:09] <Demisedulous> She'd never bother with turning the heat on/off
[14:30:20] <Demisedulous> If it was off and everyone was freezing, she'd ignore it
[14:30:27] <Demisedulous> then if someone piped up and asked for it to be on
[14:30:37] <Demisedulous> she'd turn it to max and leave it on for the next few weeks
[14:30:52] <Demisedulous> I had to wear my gym strip one day cuz of how much I sweat in my jeans
[14:31:02] <Demisedulous> then if you ask for it to be turned down
[14:31:13] <Demisedulous> she'll leave it down and ignore you next time it's fucking freezing
[14:31:54] <Demisedulous> One time I threw up 14 times on the bus ride in
[14:32:08] <Demisedulous> some weird kid across the aisle just watched me in silence
[14:32:25] <Demisedulous> and I just groaned and barfed for 2 hours
[14:32:31] <Demisedulous> it got all over my jeans and shoes
[14:32:34] <Bronz|work> Man, that's horrible.
[14:33:01] <Demisedulous> and I just got off the bus, walked into the school, went to the office, and asked for the phone
[14:33:04] <Demisedulous> covered in my own vomit
[14:33:25] <Demisedulous> I also missed the bus once because I passed out on a toilet
[14:33:34] <Demisedulous> kind of a problem when you miss a 1.5 hour long bus ride
[14:33:57] <Demisedulous> It was due to staying up until 6 am related shenanigans that I passed out in the first place
[14:34:07] <Demisedulous> Totally skipped the last few classes to get some sleep
[14:34:22] <Demisedulous> Waking up at 4 pm and stumbling around the janitors was way awkward
[14:34:46] <Demisedulous> I fell asleep in the ditch in front of the school while waiting for my dad to come in to get me
[14:34:53] <Demisedulous> People called me a hobo for weeks
[14:38:07] <Demisedulous> Man, people shouldn't stress over high school
[14:39:57] <Bronz|work> Man, my most exciting story I can remember about highschool busses is that I was running to one, and I stumbled over a 10cm wire fence I didn't jump over properly.
[14:40:43] <Demisedulous> You ever sit with a friend?
[14:40:51] <Demisedulous> I sat with my bud every single day
[14:41:06] <Demisedulous> We had our own seat, that had scars, scratches, holes, stuff inside it
[14:41:17] <Demisedulous> We had done all sorts of horrifying stuff to it in order to make it our own
[14:41:47] <Demisedulous> Other seats had their leather replaced
[14:41:50] <Demisedulous> but ours was never touched
[14:42:04] -!- yoshokatana [yoshokatana!~yoshokata@hide-435919F4.cst.lightpath.net] has joined #geeknights
[14:42:07] <Bronz|work> No, I did, however, ended up sitting to a guy I considered my nemesis though.
[14:42:16] <Bronz|work> He considered himself my friend though.
[14:42:21] <Demisedulous> Weird
[14:42:29] <Bronz|work> I hated that guy SO MUCH.
[14:42:38] <Demisedulous> I sat by this jerk once when the bus was completely full and we ended up punching each other
[14:43:01] <Demisedulous> He told me to stand in the aisle, and I told him someone would get off in a few minutes and he should just wait
[14:43:14] <Demisedulous> then he said he was going to knock me off if I didn't move
[14:43:22] <Demisedulous> so I said I'd hit him before that
[14:43:27] <Demisedulous> then he said really
[14:43:29] <Demisedulous> and I did it
[14:43:51] <Demisedulous> Was way cool, if not for the fact he jumped on top of me and smacked my head a bunch after
[14:44:02] <Demisedulous> I got the first hit though, totally chipped a tooth
[14:44:04] <Bronz|work> Oh, yeah, that part's not nearly as cool.
[14:44:17] <Demisedulous> He barely scratched me, big burly frame like my dad
[14:44:31] <Demisedulous> but he was a blue jean, leather jacket douchebag who goes to metal shop class
[14:45:13] <Demisedulous> Why'd you hate this guy you sat beside?
[14:46:04] <Bronz|work> Because he was a complete douchenozzle.
[14:46:08] <Bronz|work> Annoying, mostly.
[14:47:05] <Demisedulous> Eh, some people just don't fit together
[14:47:17] <Bronz|work> This one lady, she called in "You have to prioritize this one ticket!". I was all "I'll look into how to do that". I got back to her and I was all "You need to send us an email and I'll do it right away" and she's like "Nah.".
[14:47:40] <Bronz|work> He was a snooty kid who was self centered.
[14:47:50] <Bronz|work> Everything you had, he had better, everything you could do, he could do better.
[14:48:45] <Bronz|work> And he was the kind of kid who'd bring stinkbombs into the bus, and throw it after me, because that's a funny prank.
[14:49:11] <Bronz|work> The grass in front of my house smelled for shit for aproximately 1 hour.
[14:54:58] <Demisedulous> That shit ain't funny :v
[14:57:08] <Bronz|work> That's why I didn't like him very much.
[14:57:31] <Bronz|work> I recognize now that he probably did it because he was loney.
[14:57:51] <Bronz|work> But whatever, a jerk's a jerk.
[15:01:06] <Demisedulous> God damn
[15:01:14] <Demisedulous> Now it's 7 am and I need to be up in 2 hours
[15:15:05] <Bronz|work> Terrible.
[15:15:14] <Bronz|work> Might as well not sleep at this rate
[15:15:25] <Bronz|work> But 1 hour of sleep is still better than 0.
[15:15:49] <Demisedulous> But then
[15:15:55] <Demisedulous> When I wake up in an hour
[15:16:01] <Demisedulous> I'll feel even worse
[15:16:05] <Demisedulous> than if I stayed up
[15:16:41] <Demisedulous> That's how it works
[15:20:49] <Demisedulous> I didn't think this through at all
[15:28:59] <Bronz|work> ...
[15:29:09] <Bronz|work> nope.
[15:37:13] <Demisedulous> What hours do you work, Bronz?
[15:37:33] <Demisedulous> I never see you without that work tag, guess you only log on while on your work comp, huh
[15:40:19] <Bronz|work> Yeah, pretty much.
[15:40:24] <Bronz|work> I'm rarely on when not at work.
[15:40:38] <Bronz|work> My times are from 8.30 to 5 currently.
[15:40:42] <Bronz|work> GMT
[15:41:50] <Demisedulous> Oh yeah we were over this
[15:41:54] <Demisedulous> you're 9 hours ahead of me
[15:42:10] <Bronz|work> Yup.
[15:43:13] <Demisedulous> Hrmm
[15:43:26] <Demisedulous> with the amount your/you're gets stressed over online
[15:43:33] <Demisedulous> It didn't take long for everyone to get the difference
[15:44:12] <Bronz|work> Are you trying to imply something?
[15:44:30] <Demisedulous> Schools should teach kids much more basic articulation, to keep up with all the new ways technology allows us to speak with one another
[15:45:08] <Demisedulous> Reading fucking trash spewed from some kid in 11th grade should be enough to convince anyone it's necessary
[15:45:37] <Demisedulous> Though I guess people will be lazy
[15:45:40] <Demisedulous> Pushing shift is hard
[15:45:47] <Demisedulous> and spelling is boring
[15:46:38] <Demisedulous> and who even cares that you can define, translate, or replace any word in the world nearly instantly
[15:47:27] <Demisedulous> Spell checks and autocorrections will keep us complacently stupid until all language is lost to #yolosag
[15:47:48] <Bronz|work> Did you misspell swag on purpose?
[15:47:53] <Demisedulous> Mis typed there to drive the point home,
[15:47:56] * Demisedulous snaps fingers
[15:48:04] <Bronz|work> Right.
[15:48:25] <Bronz|work> I don't think there's an epidemic of bad spelling.
[15:48:42] <Bronz|work> It has much more to do with the places you read.
[15:48:45] <Demisedulous> Mind you, we're in our own circle
[15:48:58] <Bronz|work> It used to be only 5/10% of people could even read or write.
[15:50:18] <Demisedulous> The people who sound like idiots hide on facebook and twitter, casually using the internet and living lives outside.
[15:50:38] <Demisedulous> We can't even begin to figure out how many of them are infected
[15:50:48] <Demisedulous> The only people who know are the teachers..
[15:52:17] <Bronz|work> Sorry man, not everybody can be smart.
[15:54:33] <Demisedulous> I can only dream of a utopian future where periods are outlawed and everyone can spell correctly
[15:54:40] <Demisedulous> Seriously, who uses periods online
[15:54:49] <Demisedulous> woah
[15:54:51] <Demisedulous> you do...
[15:55:00] <Bronz|work> ... What of it?
[15:55:04] * Demisedulous chants "One of them, one of them"
[15:55:32] <Bronz|work> Also, I sometimes forgo periods on IRC, as they are superflous.
[15:55:53] <Bronz|work> Every message is it's own sentence, usually. Only when you type multiple in a row does the period really matter.
[15:56:48] <Demisedulous> I used to prefer excessive commas
[15:57:00] <Demisedulous> Buttt, it got a lil silly
[15:57:24] <Bronz|work> Oh, I think commas are splendid!
[15:57:45] <Bronz|work> You can just make sentences that go on, and on, and on, and you don't ever need to stop, because why would you?
[15:58:16] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!Brad@hide-C016446.static.tpgi.com.au] has parted #geeknights
[16:02:23] <Demisedulous> Delicious commas
[16:04:05] <Bronz|work> I just wanna know who decides to put all this worthless junk on your pinky.
[16:04:42] <Demisedulous> Say what
[16:04:47] <Bronz|work> I mean, P's alright, but ;? or /?. ''s pretty useful, but that's not directly under your pinky.
[16:05:00] <Bronz|work> Why ; and not '?
[16:05:09] <Demisedulous> Ohh
[16:05:12] <Demisedulous> Home position
[16:06:04] <Bronz|work> I guess that was a bit of a tangent.
[16:06:05] <Demisedulous> They're sorted by how common they are, it seems
[16:06:26] <Bronz|work> Aren't contractions more common than ;?
[16:07:00] <Bronz|work> Also, the idea was to spread out the letters so that typewriters wouldn't jam as often when keys that are close together are hit at (nearly) the same time.
[16:08:37] <Demisedulous> 8 am
[16:08:40] <Demisedulous> fuck
[16:09:52] <Bronz|work> Well, you spent your time well.
