Of course it was the same. World is the first game to do that. Let me tell you youngsters how we crafted bombs in the good old days. You didn't just pick up a bug and there you go. You had to go collect stones and ivy as well and craft a bomb shell out of those two. The stones you'd get at the same spot you'd get your whetstones, which you also had to collect.

But jokes aside, I do think that the changes overall are for the better. I'd rather have the difficulty come from the actual fights instead of tedious stuff that one just got used to. G-Rank should give anyone a run for their money and with the open areas and better engine a lot of new things may be possible.

What I forgot to mention is that I think the absolute top end weapons right now are overpowered for untempered HR monsters that aren't dragon elders. The final GL in the Nergi tree does dragon element and absolutely ruins a Rath's day it's not even funny.
Combine that with monster infighting and you're just done too quickly. On the other hand, I found the arena challenges to actually be challenging. At least the two I played.

Aren't those arenas always scaled for 2+ players? That'd definitely make them harder to take down.

We've never NOT gotten G-Rank. We will get it.

I mean, sheeeeit nigga. A lot of this is stuff you had to carefully craft at your own expense in freedom unite. I assume it was the same in 3U and 4U.
I think the only real direct quality-of-life thing added in previous generations was MHGen's ability to keep gathering for as long as you hold the button. And that extra inventory page just for gathered stuff, which I think debuted in 3?

But it's coming to the Switch, which it's absolutely perfect for.

I think that came with 4. Wasn't holding down the button also in 4? 3 brought us quicker gathering if you crouch beforehand to skip part of the animation.
Anyway, as somebody who always goes for capturing, I'm very happy about a lot of changes. Ivy and stones were always a bitch to get enough of. Every single bomb a stone and ivy being shared by bombs and nets for pitfall traps always left me in a constant need for loads of both.

Nope. Auto-gatherin is a MHGen thing. Even sped up gathering so much that they ditched the Speed Gathering skill. Even 4U was still in those Dark Ages where you had to crouch and press the button for each carve like a savage.

In hindsight, I didn't like 4U too much anyway. The areas and monster were fine but GL was fucking garbage, IG extremely overpowered and they introduced vertical gameplay but removed underwater combat because scrubs wouldn't stop complaining about it.

Not even the top end weapons.
Ive been curbstomping tempered monsters without even having the final upgrade on most weapons.
Im close to the final upgrade but when choosing a quest my thoughprocess is "why hunt some more materials to upgrade my weapon further when I can easily do a tempered quest instead"
Perhaps Ill need the final upgrades for tempered elder dragons until then I probably wont bother.

Also the arena quests are more challenging indeed but it sucks you cant use your own gear there imo

I always avoided arena challenges because of not being able to use my own gear.

I'm just baffled as to why the monsters in the arena are always in rage mode.
