  1. I know it's been a year since this was asked, but I'm gonna answer anyways in case someone has a similar question: It takes place roughly around the same time as HR as there are characters from all games up to lost song appearing but none from HR + there are mentions of stuff that will happen in Fatal Bullet. Oh, but I've heard that AW vs SAO is considered non-canon to the games story by some people as the events aren't referenced in later games. But I haven't played FB and Alicization yet, so I can't confirm. I would recommend playing LS -> HR -> AW vs SAO -> FB, but there wouldn't be any issues by switching HR with AW vs SAO in the order.
  2. I remember being in a discord server dedicated to hunting crowns for the original game. There were always around 10 people in the same lobby resetting quests and if someone measured something promising, he would tell others on the server so people could hop on, do measuring too and kill it quickly if it's worth trying. Got quite a few elder crowns through this and managed to find and share some crowns too. Is there a server like that for Iceborne? If not, is anyone here interested in crown hunting together like that? It's just way more efficient if multiple people are resetting quests than just one and way more fun killing them together than just solo hunt the same monster again and again.
  3. I'm not asking to set up a specific gaming session, I'm asking if there is an active discord server dedicated to crown hunting like for pre-Iceborn and if not if people are even interested in hunting crowns together like that. I changed the title of the thread to make that more clear.
  4. Just noticed this, was very confused, but much appreciated! After doing the hoarfrost crowns and finishing up the very few crowns I missed from previous crown events, I will only be left with needing crowns from blackveil, brute, velkhana and lunastra.
  5. In case someone is still missing crowns from previous event quests: After the hoarfrost crown event week, they will put the desert one and the coral one together again (starting at 3rd april). Also, expect to get new infos about the upcoming updated spring festival in the dev diary that will stream tomorrow, as they will most likely put all previous crown quests in that event as usual.
  6. I didn't have any issues with glitched trophies either. There were a few patches that made the kinda only diffculty-related trophy easier, so all that's left is grinding. If you can get into the game and like team action PVP games, you can get everything by basically just simple playing a lot and trying out every class, unlocking all skills and doing all pve missions - Stuff you just do while having fun. But if you don't enjoy the gameplay itself, it will easily turn into a slug because 1000 games will take a while and you can't just afk them.
  7. Still pretty decent activity on PS4 servers. There are certain times where it can take a while to get into something, but if you are just playing on european afternoon/evening and weekends you should always be able to find matches pretty quickly.
  8. All DLC there currently is, is just to be able to unlock the skills of newly added free characters to your custom character. No trophies for that. Also, it doesn't really help with the trophies. Some skills are nice to have for certain pvp modes, but you can easily just buy the standart edition and it will automatically download the latest version, which includes all new characters and game modes/items they added in the meantime. They did a great job on balancing, so using only the skills of the main game chars on your custom ninja won't put you at a major disadvantage.
  9. Are there any crown hunting rooms going on or is there currently a dedicated discord server for iceborne crown hunting? If not, anyone interested in sniping crowns together? Would be way more efficient to have multiple people spamming investigations at the same time and then hunting possible crown monsters together. Currently I'm sniping for: -Lunastra Mini -Velkhana Big -Veil-Vaal Mini Big -Namielle Mini -Ruin-Nergi Big -Brute-Tigrex Mini Big -Goldian Big -Silverlos Mini
  10. The gold crown event quest for elders features Banbaro (surprise!), ura, brachy, azure rath and seething bazel. Also, thankfully there will be an event quest for hoarfrost! There will just be a break with gold crown event quests next week (probably because of the new title update with raging brachy and furious rajang). Here's the preview pic for it: It shows shrieking legiana, stygian zino and something that's hard to make out again (I think it's barioth).
  11. The preview for the week after the recess crown event quest will end is up now and it seems like there's no new gold crown event quest there. So, this may be it.
  12. Gold crown event quest for coral features regular pao, regular legiana, coral pukei, dragon odo and zinogre, so nothing surprising here. And we have a preview pic for Recess: Brachy, Seething Bazel and a Rathalos - May this be a silver one or is it just an azure one?
  13. The preview pic for Vale shows Acidic Glavenus, Tigrex and something I can't make out EDIT: Just checked out the wildspire crown quest that's out now, turns out they actually added nightshade pao to it although he was not on the preview pic. So the complete lineup for waste is fish, nighshade, glavenus, black diablo and the jho that needs a snickers.
  14. Haha, so true, kinda the same happened to me! Continued doing the quest today: Whole afternoon - nothing again. Then in the evening finally got smol Rajang, then another one with nothing, then both missing large crowns in the same quest: That's RNG for ya xP
  15. I'm having some real bad luck with that quest, grinding since 3 days and I killed Narga, Garuga, Rajang about 25 times now (a bit less Rajang as I returned to camp when it obiviously wasn't either big or smol), but only got the Narga crowns so far. It's so unnecessary that they put regular anja and regular rathalos in there, killing them each time just to get a chance for Garuga and Rajang is a real waste of time... At this point I'm thinking about if it's even worth continuing to do that quest and if it would be better to just grind regular garuga and rajang investigations instead as I can just check size, abadon and repeat in a matter of 1-2 minutes. (yes, I know Rajang is technically not required, but I still wanted to complete it if they throw him in a crown event quest like that)
  16. Oh yeah, you're right! Now that you say it, the teeth give it away Was confused by what looks like wing thingies left and right
  17. The first master rank crown quest is now out and aside from the 3 on the preview picture (Nargacuga, Rajang and Garuga), they filled it up with two old monsters: Regular Rathalos and regular Anjanath. Also, the preview picture of the coral one shows Zinogre, Coral Pukei and ̶s̶̶o̶̶m̶̶e̶̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶g̶̶ ̶̶t̶̶h̶̶a̶̶t̶̶ ̶̶c̶̶o̶̶u̶̶l̶̶d̶̶ ̶̶b̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶s̶̶e̶̶e̶̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶g̶̶ ̶̶b̶̶a̶̶z̶̶e̶̶l̶̶?̶ Ebony Odo.
  18. Thank you! I took that video as reference and finally got it pretty quickly. It was even the 1222.33 one from the wiki! Here's the measuring pic for anyone interested:
  19. Any videos for scarred garuga out there? Trying to hunt the mini crown for 3 days now using the video of mini normal garuga, but I'm confused. Like this one: It is pretty much around the same size as the one in the normal garuga video with the spike being on chest level, but it's not even close. Because the wiki states his small size to be around 1222.33, but the one in the screenshot was above 1316 as that is my smallest so far and I didn't get the "new smallest size" message at the end. So, does the scarred version have to be even visually smaller than the normal one in order to be mini crown size?
  20. Not every area had the same amount of monsters back with the highrank crown event quests, so I wouldn't limit future crown events to 3 monsters. My guess for the remaining line-ups would be: Coral: Nightshade Pao, Coral Pukei, Banbaro Vale: Tigrex, Acidic Glave, Fulgur Anja Recess: Brachy, Ebony Odo, Seething Bazel Hoarfrost: Beotodus, Barioth, Ice Legiana, Viper-Tobi As much as I would like to see crown quests with elders or the guiding lands level 6+ monsters, I don't think it will happen :<
  21. The second master rank gold crown event quest for wildspire waste seems to be Black Diablos, Glavenus and Savage Jho.
  22. I'm searching for pretty looking bishoujo games for preferably PS4 (but PS3 is okay too), that are not too hard to plat. To avoid everyone posting VNs, please only mention games, that have at least some form of gameplay. A few examples are RPGs, like the neptunia games or blue reflection, action games like god eater or the gal gun rail shooters. But I don't mind the genre, it could also be a strategy game, a fighter or pretty much anything. VNs, that also feature a handful of minigames are fine, too. It's just important, that the plat is not too hard. Like, some of the Atelier games are pretty harsh with their time limits and their bosses. I don't mind games that take 100+ hours to finish, tho. Anyone got some nice recommendations for me?
  23. I don't think effort is the problem here. I finished Persona 1 on PSP before, which also required thought and effort to understand how it works and what to look out for. Otherwise even random encounters will kill you. It's really just the timelimit in Rorona that gave me no room for grinding, leveling and retrying bosses multiple times with different strategies. Can you explain how in particular the skill system in Zestiria may be difficult to get into? Oh, I didn't add that one to my list, because it's Vita only. The upcoming remaster of the first Conception will be for PS4 too.
  24. If you are refering to the wiki page: Yeah, that entry seems a bit confusing. At first it makes it seem like it describes hentai games, then it says it describes VNs, along half way through the page it shows a loli pic as an example and in the end it also lists rail shooters like Gal Gun and other types of games as bishoujo games. The majority of the JRPGs on my list aren't real bishoujo games if they don't have some kind of affection system where you can get a girl-related ending or a side-story line or something similar. That's just me pushing the boundries a bit, because these often also feature the aesthetics I adore so much in bishoujo games. It's true that a few dozens of years ago the very first bishoujo games were hentai VNs, but nowadays not many people would think that VNs are always hentai games. And like this, there are also a lot of bishoujo games, that are not adult games. Bishoujo games in erotic nature are rather called "eroge" from what I've seen. The term "bishoujo" is pretty much the opposite of "bishonen" and no one would associate that with little boys. I have no idea where the whole "underaged girls" thing comes from, but my guess is that it's because games in anime style usually feature girls around high school age and there are some controversies when it comes to fanservicey depictions in the west every now and then. I checked your recommendations, the first one seems pretty interesting. Am I right that it is a kind of horror point and click adventure in anime style? I especially like how the trophy icons together form bigger pictures of the characters And I already know about Black Clover and was planning to get sooner or later, as I also really like shounen 3D fighting games. Oh, thanks for the additional infos, really appreciate that! I noted Vesperia Remastered in my "look out for" list One question, as you seem to know a lot about the Tales of series: How is the story connected? I know that it's a multimedia franchise, having other stuff like manga, audiobooks and more alongside the actual games. Will I be able to follow everything if I only play the games in order of their release? Btw. Graces is not on the list, because I simply overlooked it when I looked up a list of "Tales of" games Just checked it and it seems to be not easy, but doable. I will add it to the "maybe" section, because I think I should first get some more experience with classic jrpgs before I attempt games around difficulty 5-7/10. Actually anime 3D fighters got me into gaming back then, like the Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi games or the Naruto Ultimate Ninja games. And I only played games like that during my school years, so aside from playing hundreds of hours of Pokemon, I had no experience with JRPGs until the recent years. I think the Digimon Adventure psp game was my first more classic turn based jrpg. It got pretty challenging midway, but I pushed through by re-adjusting my startegies and skills. And after trying out a lot of different strats and attempting many many times, I even managed to beat the hardest endgame boss by myself. After that came Digimon Cybersleuth, which felt just the right difficulty if you're not playing on easy. I failed a boss battle every now and then, but always managed to beat them after changing my team and/or doing some leveling. To my surprise I also managed to beat the strongest challenge in the game first try, although was a bit of a fluke as I had just the right ability in my team to counter the boss, who did like 8 strong attacks in a row and usually wipes out everything on max level every time it was his turn. Aside from those, I played things like Sword Art Online, Blue Reflection, the first Neptunia games and Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U, but all those didn't feel hard at all. The first SAO one was incredibly grindy and Xenoblade had some challenging additional bosses, but nothing that can't be beaten when you look up a good endgame set and copy that. So based on that, I thought I can handle a JRPG with ingame time limits and average difficulty and started Atelier Rorona Plus, but you heard how that went. So now, I'm a bit more careful with difficulty in jrpgs. But I think if a game has no ingame time limits and I can just take my time to grind levels or get better gear and then attempt it again, that already lowers the difficulty by a lot. I think what's most important for me in JRPGs is freedom, like that I can choose where to go and explore dungeons and maps however I like. And also I usually like to play the first playthrough blind in order to not get spoilers through guides or hidden trophies and I really don't like if you can get stuck with that, like standing before a boss, not being able to beat it due to having the wrong gear or having skilled in the wrong stats and there's no way to go back and prepare before retrying.
  25. Finally finished checking out all your suggestions. I watched trailers and gameplay, went through different sites about trophy difficulty, checked prices and availability and more. Sadly there were quite a few interesting games I can't play due to them being exclusively released on Vita. But most of them were fine. Definitely wanna play in the future: Gal Gun 2 (already own his one) Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization (already have this too) Accel World VS Sword Art Online Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Persona 4 Golden Persona 5 Punch Line Akiba's Trip Undead & Undressed Onechanbara Z2: Chaos Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (I'm waiting for the import price to drop a bit more) Tales of Xillia Tales of Xillia 2 Tales of Berseria Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (never heard of those zero escape games before, they look really interesting!) Zero Escape: The Nonary Games Megadimension Neptunia VII Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online Fairy Fencer F Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match (not much info about difficulty, but the trophies look like it just requires normal playing and some collecting/grinding) The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Steins;Gate Steins;Gate 0 (these VNs were on my plan-to-play list anyways, I really liked the anime and I also played Robotics;Notes by the same studio, that also had some interactive elements) Valkyria Revolution Valkyria Chronicles 4 Dream Club (this one looks like it gives out its 100% trophies for free xD) Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Maybe: BlazBlue: Cross Tag battle (I usually suck at 2D fighters, like I had many issues with the score trophy of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, but this trophy list looks pretty easy) Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (There are mixed opinions about the plat, especially people having issues with the controls in general) Bullet Girls Phantasia (not much info out there about difficulty, because not many people played this) School Girl/Zombie Hunter (trophies seem challenging, like clearing all missions with a SSS rank on all difficulties, it looks like something I would enjoy tho, I may play this on my second account) Croixleur Sigma (Mixed opinions about difficulty, most people tend to lean towards it being hard, may play this on my side account too) Atelier Dusk Trilogy (Since the trouble I had with the Arland trilogy, I'm not sure about these. I heard they got easier with less harsh timelimits, so they may be worth another try) Atelier Mysterious Trilogy (see above) Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone (Most people say it's easy, but rythm games look pretty intimidating to me. I failed to clear the more difficult songs on the K-On game and I usually only beat beatmaps up to normal difficulty on OSU. May try on another acount first to see if I'm decent enough for the game) Nights of Azure (Mixed difficulty opinions, but very pretty looking game!) Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel (This one seems doable, even for a 2D fighter noob like me) Tales of Zestiria (mixed difficulty opinions and seems dependend on RNG, but I guess if I can beat Xillia 2, I can do this one too) Shining Resonance Refrain (couldn't find much info regarding diffculty, but the trophies by description don't look that hard) Trails of Cold Steel (It seems to be a RPG on the more difficult side with a bunch of missables, but I also read that some DLCs can make the bossfights easier) Mary Skelter 2 (couldn't really find infos about this one. Am I right that the first game is Vita only and the second game for PS4 includes the first one, but there are only trophies regarding the second one?) Death End Re;quest (comes to west in 2019, will wait until then) Varnir of the Witch (Same with this one, will wait till it gets released in west 2019) Ar tonelico Qoga (average difficulty, requires a lot of planning regarding saves) Akiba's Beat (trophies seem not that hard, but the plat rate is pretty low for some reason) Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (difficulty seems okay-ish with some hard parts, but there are guides for those) Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet (I have a lot of respect for the difficulty of bullet hell games and I'm not sure if this is for me, even with seemingly not too hard trophies) Touhou Genso Wanderer (Same as above + I hardly found any infos about the difficulty of this one) Little Witch Academia (I found not enough info regarding difficulty, but I really liked the anime!) Trinity Universe (difficulty seems challenging, but not too hard, but the trophies themselves seem to be no fun. It's almost all pure grinding stuff) Conception Plus (Remaster of the first Conception game, will come out next year) Phantom Breaker extra (not many infos about difficulty, I'm extra careful about 2D fighters since the issues I had with Fighting Climax) Most likely too hard for me: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (Very hard and skill-dependent platinum. But the game looks fun. If I liked Project Diva Future Tone, I may play this on my second acc) Caladrius Blaze Guided Fate Paradox Omega Quintet Arcana Heart (very hard plat for someone, who's not an experienced 2D fighter player) Record Of Agarest War Skullgirls (very mixed opinions about difficulty, but it being a 2D fighter will probably make it pretty challenging for me) Skullgirls 2nd Encore (one of the hardest 2D fighter plats out there) Not bishoujo games, but I wanna play those too: God Eater 3 (since I loved GE1 & GE2, this one is a given, already preordered) Danganrona 1-2 Reload (already 100% the first one on PSP, so I know that I will love it) Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Life is Strange (I have my eyes on this since a while now) Bayonetta (I watched some trailers/gameplay and it reminds me a lot of devil may cry. I have to agree with the soundtrack, it sounds really amazing. I wanna play this on my second account, so I don't have to worry about trophies) Nier (I may skip this one as I read that this one is not as good as Automata + more than half of the process towards platinum is very boring material grind) Nier Automata The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia Gravity Rush Gravity Rush 2 Thanks again for all the lists and recommendations! There were a lot of niche games I didn't know about and I think all these games will keep me busy for a long time
