I found that miracle lady that was at the tower and moved to the entrance to the sewer leading to the tower area, who then made a new path once I paid her. Took me several hours of retreading through the world until I found something different. Also killed the Bell Tower gargoyles, who were a pain in the ass to get to because of the bell defenders covenant all crammed together waiting for me to get near the bell.
We spent five minutes staring at each other since he couldn't reach me without falling to his death. He eventually gave up and disconnected. Serves the invader right.
15 Earthgems, 2 Earthsphires. Jhen be sharin' his prosperous prosperity with me.
Also got a random Los Mantle, which is #2. I could make some Los armor if I wanted, but my current sets are better (and cooler-lookin'), so I'll hold off.
Killed off the chariot and bonelords. Reached the base of the windmill tower. An awful lot of poison, but doesn't seem as bad as I thought it'd be.
Finished my first real mixed set; half Hallowed Jhen, half Miralis, one fifth Barioth. Gets me Attack Up (Large), Sharpness +1 and Evasion +1 for even weapons without slots, meaning this is basically my BnB Switch Axe armor set. Set has really good defense actually, is only notably weak to Dragon (-16), and the armor's appearances pair quite well with each other. Strange how a crystalline, "hallowed" desert whale has its armor's aesthetics go well with the armor of a satanic volcano dragon.
On the way to said armor set, I killed two Goldbeards for some scales... and got two Deep gems 'n one Dark gem for my "troubles". The desire sensor is real... ... ...
I'll make the Ceadeus axe 'cause it's great, and will save one Deep gem for Helios X. A lot of mixed sets I want to make call for the Helios X Helm, so my luck is truly fortunate. Had no intent on grindin' ether Ceadeus due to the fight bein' boring.
My current Monster Hunter character is using a Caedeus axe. Haven't fully upgraded it since I postponed the game until whenever.
Seems it's rather painful to fully upgrade, as while I already have a Lagi Mantle (four in fact) and said Dark Dragongem, I'm missin' three Luminous Organs... back in the water I go. ._.
... How does one pronounce "Ceadeus", anyways?
Second part of the name is definitely "deh-oos", with it being a latin term and all. The first part is likely pronounced "sea", since it's more fitting, but I always say it as "kah-eh". Sea god is easy to remember.
