      Honestly, Master Rank needed to have Tempered be Baseline Pink Rathian was oneshotting (Tailswipe + Deadly Poison) should be innate (Tempered Damage Wise), Tempered variations should be stupidly strong Elder Dragons in MR shoulda been equivalent at the very least to their AT Counterparts Yeah, you'd lose the occasional scrublord here and there, but beyond time-to-kill (when not abusing the new mechanics to an absurd level), it really hasn't gotten that much more difficult in Master Rank over High Rank

        People complained that AT Nergi was unfathomably unfair and people say Ruiner is too people need to make up your minds.

          This fight was fun but, for how epic it should have been, it was disappointingly easy...Soloed with GS easily and tbh I found AT nerg way harder. I wanted this fight to feel impossible, or that we were evenly matched but I decimated this thing, no carts, and it just felt unsatisfying.

            Weaknergi should be his name, AT was at least challenging and forced you to learn it's patterns. This one you just go in and kill it with no fuss

              Ruiner is a better fight compared to the bullshet that is Arch Tempered Nergigante. That Arch Tempered Nerg unannounced dive kills me every single time in stage 3, to the point I had to use farcaster quite liberally to avoid that bullshet back then.

                Easier then I expected, I love my boy nergi but for the most part Vaal weapons seem just generally better to me and his armor isn’t that great. For what is essentially the True final boss of iceborne he doesn’t really feel as hard as he should be and while his gear does look great, it doesn’t seem great to me. :/ ah well, I love nergi all the same

                  How the ***** are you meant to get Hardclaws? Do you have to break the metal spikes then break his forelimbs after or are the metal spikes the forelimb break? Also his *****ING wings keep getting in the way.

                    hopefully since Nergigante got a new subspecies, I hope vape hazak gets a subspecies as well. And please not wind type, its making me remembers AT kushala... damn that is such pain to fight.

                      Why won't anyone talk about this new monster there has only been one video on it and it makes me believe they don't want to let people know it exists.
