Insert Tagline Here (the official Monster Hunter World thread)

For Oblivion. And some other stuff, I suppose.

Well it's not easy for me either. HR Diablos killed Fien and I the other day. And I only killed it once more. (Which is why it's weird/lucky that I already got 2 horns.)

Black Diablos is worse though. His charge can curve towards you. He has this back-step and rotate move to face you more easily. And when he burrows and comes back up, if he missed you, then he will fly at you instead of just staying where he came up.

is there something that helps with burrowing? Flash pods or something? (Doesn't sound like it would be flash pods.)

Black Diablos is the only one left for me to do before Nergigante. And I really don't think I can kill Nergigante. Maybe Black Diablos has awesome armour that will help.

<goes to look>

Hmm, maybe the beta helm, which has Focus 1 (not useless) and a rank 3 gem slot. Which would be great if I had any rank 3 gems. But the helm requires rare stuff to craft, I think.

Ah nice. Might try some.

Maybe I need to be thinking about buffs. Or maybe using traps. For the monsters that I don't 1 shot, at least. I saw a video of a guy doing Diablos in 2m20s or something. I should go back and watch and work out all the buffs he used.

Speaking of traps, I think I got a capture black diablos investigation. Which should make it easier, assuming he's not immune to shock or pitfall or sleep or whatever.

Damn. I had no idea.

Wait, so, when would you ever use barrels when the monster is asleep? Isn't the monster already capturable when it ran away to sleep?

Also it might fall asleep from the sleep status

So Black Diablos wasn't so bad after all.

Have killed everything (available) except Nergigante. I still don't feel like I can kill it, based on my 1 try, but I don't think there's much more I can do to prepare other than get a couple of awesome gems, which doesn't seem likely.

So Nergigante starts tonight.

Jesus, I was looking at the trophies and there's one for killing a tempered monster. So, 33% of players have already finished the story and killed something after that?

And another, almost 50% of people opened 8* assignments, which is presumably from killing Nergigante.

Why are we so rubbish?

Isn't it just that they're all doing it online with a solid group of 4 people, probably much higher level than them?
Stealth is an option.
