    Am I missing it, or do most monsters not tell you if they fall into the "Brute" "fanged" etc. category?

    Your monster field guide will tell you a monsters classification after you first encounter and research it. You get an idea for where they go after a while, like brute wyverns are heavyset theropods and bird wyverns are small feathery weirdos, etc

    I must have missed it when looking at it. I only saw the term a few times in descriptions.

    Mizutsune isn't gonna happen. It shares the same skeleton as Lagiacrus and they've already confirmed that Lagi won't be in Iceborne due to still having trouble making its skeleton not spaz out in World's more dynamic environments.

    How often do event quests return? It's really annoying for certain skins like the eyepatch to be locked out by these.

    Trying out they Velkhana beta. Damn he's pretty rough so far. Breath is lethal and ice blast has a bigger hit box than it looks. Tail thrust has a hellishly long range and comes out fast. Can combo into a swipe to punish dodging in close. I'll get this bastard soon enough. :D

    Velkhana is indeed one tough mofo. But on third try, managed to kill it! Praise be to flinch shot :D 


    And a few quick infos I found;
    -A Diablos is seen during Rathalos and Zinogre's fight. The insinuation is a new area that allows for many monsters from different environments.
    -Zinogre can be found in the Coral highlands.
    -More variants ala Shrieking Legiana will appear.
    -Gammoth will not return :(

    Hit it until it dies.

    But seriously, flash pods can bring it down when it's flying around, poison is quite effective against it, a dragon weapon (which you can get from Nergigante) helps to block off its wind aura, and there are environmental hazards like boulders and toads to lure it into. Kushala focuses on a more defensive style that keeps you at bay, so focus on its head to stun it and take advantage of whenever it isn't flying or wrapped in wind.

    All due respect for Meowscular Chef but Grammeowster Chef is so much more awesome. The best cat grandmother I wish I had!

    Man this expansion is good. New big boss is a great improvement over Xeno, the returning monsters are a treat and Namielle is a fun challenge. Not too thrilled with the variants, but the subspecies like Fulgur are fun.

    I beat the three Elder Dragons. How much longer until I can get to the expansion?
