Come on, we just need one enterprising Felyne to step up and fill this need in the convenience market. And with Hoarfrost Reach just opened? It’d be like printing money.
I’ve been hunting for so long that I’ve just grown used to managing my various helpful jars of liquids (though the Sandy Plains in Tri where you needed both Hot and Cold drinks always made me twitch a little), but I think I’m noticing it in early Iceborne because the fights are taking longer. Which means my Hot Drink is running out in the middle of a knock-down, drag-out with a stubborn Banbaro, and I don’t notice it until my Stamina is suddenly smaller than I remember.
Really, though, begging for minor convenviences is all I can find to complain about with Iceborne, especially when they’ve added so many little quality of life improvements. Dynamic difficulty scaling, the Seliana Gathering Hub has everything, you can fire your slinger with weapon drawn, and most importantly of all…
You can pet your fucking palico.
This, I cannot stress this enough, is long overdue. I don’t even fucking like cats, but this little guy has done so much work for me in my 150+ hours with World, he deserves some scritches.
Iceborne is just really impressive all around. It’s an expansion, but they could have called it a sequel and no one would bat an eye. That’s how much content they’ve added.
