Is playing meta important to you?




I find it kind of funny how hardcore into meta the MH community is. I have been scoffed at before for simply using weapons and armor that I think look cool, but may not have top tier stats.

To the people that are all about meta, you realize MH games are not that hard, right? The only thing forcing you to use the best possible equipment and nothing else is your ego.

I use whatever I feel like. And I feel like having a super comfy set.
So my builds will generally include things like Earplugs, Stun Res, Health Boost, etc.
I've come to not really care about things like Attack Boost and Peak Performance outside of when there's literally nothing else I can think to use on the set.

When I look at meta sets, I mostly just see templates and quickly find the things I'd rather have swapped out for whatever bulls*** I'm on that day. I don't have any issues with the folks who do go all in on the Meta, 'cuz if they can make full use of the max deeps sets then I say f***in' go for it and a shred someone.
It all comes down to personal preference in the end, everyone enjoys different aspects and all that.

If you're playing multiplayer it'd be nice to use good loadouts out of courtesy for others. Particularly for something like Safi where damage thresholds have to be met to break parts and the like in order to receive good rewards.
If you play solo there's no reason not to use anything you want.

What reason is there to play video games if not to satisfy your ego? Whether through efficiency or coolness. Get your head out of your ass and stop thinking that not being a "metaslave" somehow makes you a better person.
After Drachen, I don't feel like there's too much meta per say?

I've looked up meta sets and they seem interesting, but it's mostly small optimizations I suppose. Stuff like Safi + Masters Touch for Longswords or Safi + Zorah's Essence for Gunlance. Other than that I don't feel like there's any set that's super changing like Drachen was.

i first max out the 4 main skill (CE, CB, Wex, and HB), add at least 1 level of agitator, then Ill work from there. The main build i use has those 5 skills maxed plus Divine Blessing 5 and evade window 5. Good mix between damage and comfy
