        Honestly one of the most easiest hunts I've ever done, was scared of nothing. When I've done him I went to do his tempered version (Ode to Destruction) and it was easy as well. I'd say Raging Brachy is more difficult but :shrug:

          This poor guy has not aged well. I bought Iceborne pretty late, and by the time i unlocked Nergi i already had full Safi, full Raging Brachy etc. - so not only was he pretty easy, but all his gear became obsolete before i even forged them. What a shame.

Driven by dual-tracks for better performance, armed with the powerful 154mm or 160mm smoothbore gun, two 14.8mm heavy machine guns, one remotely operated variant mounted on the turret, another mounted on the right of the main gun, and is one of the vehicles; capable of killing an Elder-Level Monster eg. Savage Deviljho or Elder Dragon such as Ruiner Nergigante and Velkhana with just one shot from very long ranges. *a Holographic Demonstration shows a UEDF M30A2 "Growler" Heavy Main Battle Tank firing its 160mm gun at a Savage Deviljho and Ruiner Nergigante from a range up to 7,500 meters.*

              Good night folks. I came here to see if anyone can help me. It's about the Ruiner Nergigante ... I'm at rank 99 for many missions and don't release my Nergigante. I made them all optional, some investigations, Saffi siege and nothing. I'm discouraged because I really want to continue the game, but my Master rank is paralyzed. Do you have a specific mission to release the nergigante?

                Outside of festivities this game is a lot more of a pain in the ass. Didn't remember getting to MR100 was even a thing for me on my wyman in January. Steamworks doesn't spit out decorations anymore is also quite the blow in the neither region. Started Iceborne in Dec 19 and didn't even know it was only a time limited feature... 50000 fuel... :/

                  Once you defeated him on the MR99 quest, you can have him as a Investigation from various tracks. I do recommend gathering those from Elder's Recess, so you can utilize both crystals in the middle of the zone for quick damage.

                    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.
