@Mop it up

Okay, cool. Yeah, I've talked to a bunch of NPCs with the yellow speech bubbles, but they aren't requesting stuff. Maybe I have to go on an expedition. I've gone on one already, maybe I'll do another today. I liked knocking out those quests from the list, I want to get back to that.

@GameDadGrant If you can't figure it out, then let me know which quest level you're on and how many you've completed at that level. Then I should be able to figure out more specifically what you need to do next. The game can sometimes be obtuse with it.

I think I have a new goal for myself. Beat all the arena quests with all the the avalable weapons so I can unlock some great stuff.

Another Monday is upon us in two days. Who's in?

That would be me.
Posted: 05/16/15, 23:38:59
I'll drop by. I want to jump up to HR5.

I did my first Urgent Quest from the Guild! Offline mode. Took down a Kecha Wacha, and now I have the Wycoon working with the caravan. Not too shabby!

Also unlocked the path to Harth! Not sure if I should go ahead and go there, or finish up quests in Val Harbar first...?
Posted: 05/17/15, 18:47:53
@GameDadGrant You can go and visit Harth. There are no quests that are time-sensitive or missable, not even the "urgent" quests, so you'll always be able to go back and finish up undone quests no matter how long ago you received them.
Posted: 05/17/15, 21:59:27
Yeah only reason you might want to wait to go to Hearth is if you want to make a new armor or upgrade your weapons before heading over there.
Posted: 05/18/15, 00:20:52
Okay. I've already upgraded all my stuff so far. Maybe I should get different armor/weapon set? Or will the Tetsucabra set serve me well for a while?
Posted: 05/18/15, 14:49:38
It will serve you for a while. I highly recommend the Najarala armor when you get access to it since it has Earplugs, Capture Expert, Negate Paralysis and Specters whim. Earplugs is really handy so you can keep attacking while the monster roars. You can even boost the skill up to HG (High Grade) Earplug with all the armor slots. .

I am going to open up a room now. 69-9908-8344-3331 is the room ID if you need it.

Aurgh. I'm out this week, it seems. Didn't think I wouldn't be home yet - things are taking longer than expected. I'll have to meet up with y'all next week.

Which I guess is okay - I kinda wanted to continue focusing on offline stuff anyway. Hey, if any of you are still playing when I get back, I'll try to join in for a hunt or two. I'm just not sure when I will be back. Hope that's cool.

We played for a bit and I think myself and Mop it up went and did other things like arena and fight some new monsters in G3. Mop it up we need to get you some thunder and dragon weapons. Which type do you prefer for elemental weapons?
Posted: 05/19/15, 21:23:09
So it was mentioned by me that up against a Tigerix if you are hit and then Tigerix comes back around for another charge that if you stay down you won't get hit. Here is a visual representation of that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gnlc6RZXviY

Alright, so I got to the point where I can use abrasives and polish relics…as well as: equip decorations! Aw yeah!

Now the only problem is, I'm not sure how to do that. Or where to find or make decorations. Can I lean on the veterans again for some help/guidance?
Posted: 05/24/15, 18:47:18
Tomorrow is Monday but also a holiday, does anyone want to play tomorrow evening, or postpone it for Tuesday?

@GameDadGrant When you go to The Man (I think that's the name of the forge guy), you should now see an option for Decorations. Here, you will have an option to forge decorations, or set decorations if you have already made some. You can also set decorations you already have from the equipment box in your house. Many armors and weapons have what are called "slots," and these are what you need to attach the decorations. The slots are represented visually on an equipment's info page using circles, and can have up to three circles; if something has all dashes then that means it has no slots.

The decorations will have names like "[name] Jewel 1," and the number here represents how many slots it requires to attach. You can press Start to switch to the actual skill names instead of the sometimes-nonsensical jewel names. Some use 1 slot, while others will require 2 or 3 slots. Jewels that require more slots will also grant you more skill points, so they are more efficient if you have the slots available for them. Note that many jewels will have at least one negative skill point in a different skill, so be sure to check out what skills you're trying to mix together on your equipment as some don't mix well. For example, the Attack Jewel 1 has Attack +1 and Defense -1, so don't try to make a set with both Attack Up and Defense Up skills.

Sorry if that's a bit of an info dump. It's a bit of a complicated system, like all things in this game. If anything isn't clear, let me know and I'll try to rephrase it.
Posted: 05/24/15, 23:40:53
Yeah Grant. A decoration needs two things to make. An aquaglow/sunspire/ bloodrun/lazurite jewel. and some type of monster part or two. Best way to get those type of jewels is to mine for them. One neat thing is if you go into the decorations menu and press start it will show what type of skill that decoration would increase. Much easier to finding a peticular skill that you want to put in your armor and talisman. Oh I should mention Talismans were introduced in Tri and they help add more skills to your sets. Always keep your talis after quests because they can be useful later.

As far as Abrasives and polishing relics go, that requires going to the Troverian at the forge in Harth. Relics can give you some really.... really nice gear, but you have to sift through a LOT of junk first...
Posted: 05/25/15, 02:09:55
I feel relics aren't worthwhile until the late game, since they take so long to get and aren't really better than stuff you can forge until the end game equipment, so I'd suggest ignoring them for the time being.

@Cryojin Hi mate, I don't think we've met in the game yet, haven't seen you since 3U. We have the weekly hunts scheduled for Monday evenings, are you able to make those? If not, we should set up a time to meet sometime, it's be nice to meet up with you again.
