hunting with randoms eugh
Haven't done that in awhile... lo and behold, I once again end up in a turns city wherein we efficiently slay G-rank Alatreon with no incident. And get another Skyswayer I don't inherently need. I sure know how t' pick these rooms.
If ya ever find a field of hives, I DARE ya to sprint through int' the next biome. Not recommended until you have a way to respawn yourself.
Also, I never use the "hold and release" spin attack lol. I always do an attack and buffer the control stick rotation/shield first. Likel a habit of mine from TP and SS where you can insta-spin attack mid-combo.
