I guess it's the equivalent of the subspecies and deviants of previous games. 4U had them alongside subspecies and they had their own mechanics but I guess they dropped that here.


They do have differences though, like the mizu bubbles

Sorry I meant like they had their own gimmick specific to them as a class a monsters; namely the wystone stuff

In IB they only gave us a certain amount of craftable layered armour at first so I'm curious if they'll do the same with Rise and give us more in future updates.

Looks like a decent content drop in the new update, most excited for Chameleos I think since he's not really been around since FU as far as I'm aware so it'll be interesting to see how they update his mechanics (do smoke bombs even still exist??). I think it's a bit brazen how they're suddenly making you pay to redesign your character though considering you could do it whenever you wanted up till now.
Hopefully the May update has a similar amount of new content, although at the pace I'm currently playing idek if I'll be at a point of being able to access the new ending, I've only just got to the 5* village/3* hub Magnamalo urgents lol

I do miss the 4U apex mechanics, from a narrative point of view it makes sense that they didn't carry over to subsequent games but at the same time since when has MH cared that much about narrative (case in point, New World monsters in Rise with no explanation that I'm aware of)

Maybe I'm looking too much into it but since Rise's update schedule is already meatier than World's was I'm wondering if that means the Ultimate version will be coming sooner than we think >,>

They introduced it in World and gave you a free ticket for one character change. You're getting a free ticket in this as well according to the presentation.

Aye but in Rise up till now you could just head to your item box and change your character's appearance whenever you wanted without spending a single zenny/real-life penny. Fair enough if it had been the ticket system from the get-go, or if character editing hadn't been there and they'd introduced it with this update with the ticket system in place, but locking a previously free feature behind paid DLC seems very very cheeky to me.

They added the Yukumo Village, Farm and Guild theme as DLC I'm legit getting emotional over this lol. Also looks like a lot of the update doesn't unlock until after post game which is a shame. Wanted to mess around with Layered armour stuff. Guess I've got a ways left >,>

Well there are definitely some surprises in the update.

I bought the Kamura piano version BGM and it's lovely.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Currently HR 19. Impressed so far with the update. Nice to have new things to aim. It cost a fortune to max out my armour but I've done it. So at least the fights won't be over in one hit.

Doesn’t this let you change your gender though?

What annoys me is the dance gesture not being in the game by default but (some kind of dance at least) being added as paid DLC :x

I unlocked the 7* urgent last night so I won't immediately hit the update content but I should be there soon

Did a bunch of quests last night before the update cause I thought when it dropped it would see I've done a lot of the quests and bump up my HR automatically, but it seems like it doesn't take into account anything you've done previously so, bit salty.

Beaten both Magnamalo urgents now so hopefully now it's time for the real big boy hunts. I'm really glad they've added all the drop rates in your hunter notes, made it a lot easier to try to get Ghostprisms for gear knowing they have a big chance with shiny drops, so I immediately ran to jump on a Rathian's back at the start of the second quest to try and break a load of shinies off 'malo.

No idea, if it's adding further functionality it's maybe a little bit more justified but I'd still say they should leave in the basic re-editing for free in that case.

Reached HR level 30. Unlocked a new urgent quest. Should be fun.

Is this confirmed how it works then? Previous games have background tracked your progress and then the HR bump once unlocked takes account of everything you have done. It sounds dumb if doing quests as you go means they don't contribute but racing through then going back to them when they are easier does...
