Today I started ranked battles now that my doubles team is ready.
Lost twice due to flinch hax and won ten
There were some pretty weird teams, like a Surf Water Absorb team, a Trick Room team, a Shadow Tag team, and one that had 4 of my Pokémon.
I also learned that Arcanine is used a lot in Doubles on Ranked
Completed the Artisan's Hammer award, easily the most time-consuming objective in the entirety of MH3U... 'sides collecting every single weapon or armor, which is plain-ol' stupidity (or boredom).
Also completed my Vivillon set. My interest in that pursuit waned once I had only two patterns remaining, but luckily I received one via a charitable soul, motivatin' me to track down that last rare pattern (Icy Snow). w00t
Also also finally gettin' to finishin' offline MK8 stuff, but mirror mode can go die.
Finally getting back into D&D, dusting off my old vampiress Jack the Ripper character... life might get interesting again soon.
Found my DS Lite charger, so I'll be back t' Fire Emblem 12 soon. ♪ Perhaps I'll be able t' join the Robin-Lucina hype 'fore Smash 4's release.
After managin' to trounce G-rank Alatreon in one go, it got me thirsty for moar solo huntin', so I took to tryin' t' solo the superultrakarptastic Stygian Zinogre in the event quest Descent into Hades. The first try failed miserably via triple cart at the 40 minute mark, but that was expected. First hunt'a the day without a warm-up, was still sleepy. I was testin' the waters more than anythin'.
Attempt #2 however, was srs bsns. Practiced the quest in an actual huntin' party for two hunts and took all'a that knowledge I learned from it and put together a usable armor set (the one I was currently wearin' was not only quite average, it was also terrible for Stygian itself). Didn't cart even once, but I ended up timing out... don't believe it was right about slain either, as I got hit by way too much dragonblight. Pawsitively neutered my DPS after I ran outta cures for it. Maybe close, but not close enough for an early capture.
For attempt #3 I gave one'a my shakas a new mask and ditched the artillery cannon strategy... 'n tried harder. A lot harder. Tryhardmodeengaged-level harder. Took less risks and thanks to that conserved my dragonblight cures, allowin' me to succeed with just a minute 'n 50 seconds to spare. Did cart twice due to sheer stupidity on my part, but 'ey, I succeeded.
Next on my hitlist will be solo-ing the superultrakarpsometacular Ivory Lagi in the event quest Cruel King of the Sea. I've already done it duo with a 25~ minute time, so I've all-due confidence that I'll be able t' do it.
Solo haunted G-rank Jhenny Moron and her Hollowed-head subspecies. Engaged in some truly proper speed-runnin' tactics, double carting myself intentionally to activate Fortify. Did awful on regular Jhen, but Hallowed took a bit over 23 minutes. Not too shabby with a Greatsword, I reckon. Easiest hunt t' speed run though, since it takes no skill... only smarts 'n strategy. Though the same could be said for any bowgun speed runs.
Gonna go after event Ivory next. This time for realsies.
