Bingeing on Monster Hunter World

I didn’t use to understand why some of my friends played Monster Hunter World as frequently as they do. Sure, I like the game too but I don’t have the same kind of passion. Now after spending the weekend playing the game a bit more I think I am starting to understand the appeal.

My whole weekend this time was spent doing Optional Quests in the game. Most of those were High Rank from the base game and although I didn’t have to do them I still wanted to just for completionism’s sake. It turned out to be a very fun experience too. Even with just some starting-level gear from Iceborne I was able to just wreck the face of all the monsters in these quests. I honestly don’t think I ever hunted them so fast by myself.

Monster Hunter World base game story completed!

Finishing the story for the base game of Monster Hunter World was something that was in my bucket list for a very long time. It was something I struggled to do for such a long time that at certain points I thought about giving up on it completely. Thankfully I didn’t and this weekend I finally completed the base game’s story! 😀

It wasn’t something I was really planning to do, nor actually expecting it. It kinda of just happened.

Maybe I should back track a little to explain how things turned out like this. I always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the game. Love because hunting giant monsters is fun. Hate because the grind to get new gear to hunt new monsters can be tedious. The frustration with the grind only got worse when I got to the High Rank monsters and the difficulty spike suddenly felt like it went way up. When I reached Nergigante then? It felt like I reached an insurmountable wall I’d never be able to get past.
