Part 3: Pretty Much Everyone’s Reaction to Ahtal-Ka
is Barioth supposed to be completely unfair?
Shara Ishvalda: *appears in my quest list*
Me, frothing at the mouth with SnS in hand” GIVE ME YOUR JAW YOU LIMP ROCK BOY
Hey hi how’s it going great alright
2 years later I’m still fuming over World’s weapon designs
So since I’ve seen people doing mhw monster tier lists, here’s mine!
I’m also gonna go over my top tiers (S+) and low tiers (E-):
Bazel (seething and normal): my blasty babies, i can AND WILL kill for both of them. Theres a reason I have both of their complete armor sets after all, despite them not helping much. Plus his theme is fucking AMAZING!!!!! I just wish seething stayed an invader, I loved when bazel just showed up during quests.
Dodogama: Obvious reasons, plus I love his fight.
Nergi: his gear? Love. His fight? Love. His appearance? Love. By far my favorite fight base world, with how it becomes much easier the more you learn it, perfect example for a good monster.
Ruiner nergi: same with normal, except better fight and worse armor.
Banbaro: as a Hammer main, he’s so much fun to fight, plus he’s the perfect amount of goofy yet still cool. Just wish he wasn’t an invader (THE WOOLY SNOW DINO SHOULDN’T BE IN A FUCKING VOLCANO FOR FUCK SAKE!!!)
Raging brachy: Damn is his fight fun! Difficult as hell (but not too insane) plus his gear is fucking AMAZING!!! I’ve grinded for his gear a shit ton, and still am not sick of him. The music for the final zone as well us amazing!
Safi: I love that we get to fight the adult version of xeno, and while color wise I prefer xeno I still love safi. It feels like they looked at normal and at xeno, saw what did and didn’t work, and using the new improvements added in iceborne made a FANTASTIC fight! (Tbh I wish he was the final boss for iceborne, feel if would have fit, but still like it.)
Jyuratodus: dumb fish, like lavisioth yet worse, overall an uncreative and uninteresting fight (plus his mud and the fact he’s almost always in deep water combined with water blight is a pain in the ass.) At least beotodus isn’t as bad.
Legiana: First of all, I hate iceblight so that alone makes me not like legi, plus the fact she’s always in the air doesn’t help. She always felt like the lamest and weakest of the 4 apex monsters in base world, and felt even more so upon iceborne.
Pink rath: never really liked the look of pink rath the color not suiting her personally. Fighg wise, she’s just rath but more annoying, with pink rath and tempered rathian feeling almost the same.
Barioth: too fidgety and agile for it’s size, made worse by it’s annoying wind and ice blight attacks. Feels like they took the worst of narga and legi into one monster tbh.
Lavisioth: pretty much same as jyura, except stronger and even uglier. Having fought mhgu lavisioth, mhw one feels like a downgrade.
Kushala: I fucking HATE his fight. The constant flying (made worse for at and mr with flash resistence) combined with the giant annoying tornadoes capable of locking you out a zone or in a corner combined with his wind aura make him my least favorite elder dragon. The main reason he’s not lower is cause I love his looks and concept.
Nightshade: just like normal paolumu but spamming sleep non stop. Low tier and forgettable as well as annoying.
Rajang: Combine the speed of odogaron, strength of deviljho, thunder blight, and constant bouncing when enraged (which lasts forever if you cant cut the tail. I play hammer so…..) and make it simultaneously too small to reliably hit and have moves with huge hitboxes and you got the hell that is rajang. At least his gear is nice.
Brute: same as tigrex which I’ll talk about later, but at least his gear is awesome a d he has a better color, so he’s higher.
Burn in hell Tier
Behemoth: Nothing but a blight causing constant pining tornado spamming tanky piece of shit. Looks ugly, is a pain to fight (of which in base world is recommend with how good his gear is) and his pain in the ass meteors, I hate him.
Shreaking legi: Everything bad about legi dialled up to 11, constant blights, never lands, and always has a normal legi following around. Just a pain in the fucking ass to fight with no positive difference.
And last but not least, Tigrex
WORDS CAN NOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH I FUCKING HATE THIS ANNOYING ASS PIECE OF SHIT BITCH!!!!!
Huge hitboxes? Check! Extreamly quick? Check! Giant aoe attacks? A million checks! Meh gear? Check! Ugly colors? Check. Meh design? Check (at least those last 2 fixed with brute). Ever since I first fought it in mh4u I fucking hated it, and on top of that it’s a fucking invader, so I have to deal with it NON FUCKING STOP!!!!! FUCK TIGREX, MAY THIS UGLY ASS PIECE OF SHIT BASTARD BURN IN HELL FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY AAAAAAAAA-
Moral of the story? Bazel is amazing, and FUCK TIGREX!!!

“In the eyes of a swift predator” pt.3
As I layed on the ground,completely unable to move due to the weight the Zinogre was applying against my own. I then heard him say with a stern voice “What are you doing?! You’re only gonna get yourself killed just by wandering!”. I replied with “I was only investigating spores and then I passed out. Now I don’t know what to do.”.
The Zinogre then asked “was that you who licked that ice wall?” I replied with “yes??” was he watching me?I hav no idea.He then give a rather loud laugh. That’s when I said “you tell me not to be wandering around yet you laughed so loud,you literally just gave away our position..”. The look on his face was absolutely priceless when I said that.
As I went my own way,I stumbled upon a camp site. at first I paid no attention to it..but once again my curiosity got the better of me. More specifically, what was in the tent..I poked my head in said tent. Only to find nothing but sleeping bags,Leftover food and weapons. As I got my head out of the tent,I saw numerous other tents.
I realized something about this camp site..this was no ordinary camp. This was a poacher camp. I heard the poachers returning to camp site and made a run for it. The last thing I heard them say before I could no longer see the camp was “we’re not alone..”. I made sure to cover my tracks so they couldn’t find me later.
The next day,I went hunting for food this time instead of scavenging. There were two options, 1. An injured Tigrex (a lot of meat,would put up a fight)
2.a Kulu ya ku (easy kill,not much meat)
I went with option 1. As I approached the Tigrex,it wasn’t aware of my presence. As the Tigrex was about to sleep that’s when I pounced. As it is common knowledge to go for the throat to kill it and I did it. Or..at least tried to..the pseudowyvern shook my mouth off it’s throat and threw me against a wall.
After I fell after being thrown against a wall,I was helpless. But I had one more trick up my sleeve. As the Tigrex was about to take a bite out of me,I got back up,got out of the way of the bite,clamped my mouth onto it’s neck,placed my paws to ensure it couldn’t get back up. I waited a few minutes..it stopped moving. Not entirely sure if it’s faking it,I snapped it’s neck. That’s when I would be hunting from then on.
