    Yeah, those can be frustrating. My recommendation is to filter sessions for Arena Quests and see if there is a populated room. You might have to jump a couple of rooms to find people actually doing arena quests, but usually you can find some people doing them.

    Does this Armor make me look fat? lol

    I ditched the Pumpkin Armor had alot of weight to it seen a guy helping me with the Ice Dragon above he left explosions barrels all over the place.
    This game doesn't seem very long though I though it would be never ending I mean if you want complete Armor sets of everything it will take you a while.
    Also noticed that some swords and stuff are better than others I mean some of the stuff you get from the first Zone needs to be sharpened more often.

    Mouse and Keyboard is great actually it's alot more forgiving than Dark Souls mouse and Keyboard. The game has a Endgame actually I haven't got there yet but you hurt different Elder dragons that are more challenging I guess. The summoning of other player with a SOS flare is fun if you don't feel up to the task of soloing.

    .... Today, is a good day.

    Finished upgrading from an i5-750 to a Xeon 4c/8t and swapped out the old GTX 960 for a 980 Ti.

    Purchased Monster Hunter, it defaulted to the High preset. I was like "coo.".

    Played till I got to whatever the first big town is....

    Not ONCE did it drop below 60 fps.

    To quote Chris Rock: "This is what I paid for!"

    Anyways.... how do I turn off this "soupy-fog" DOF business??

    Disable Volumetric Fog, helps a lot with performance as well.

    So I managed to play this for about an hour last night (much to the chagrin of others in the living room lol)

    Am I wrong in seeing this as kinda-sorta like a much deeper Phantasy Star Online?? (after a fashion... mostly the way MP is handled)

    If so, my god.... this game is gonna be SUCH a longolier....

    So how does the multiplayer work exactly?

    Once you're able to get quests, can you start teaming-up??

    I saw it mentioning voice chat and whatnot.

    I could see myself playing this a lot more if we had a [H] group or something....

    if you have friends you can always team up with them. quests are mostly of two types. there are story missions and investigations. Story missions you have to start solo. Eventually you get to a part where you have to hunt a monster. Then you can shoot a flare and others can join.

    Investigations generally offer better rewards. You will typically start one and then shoot a flare. You collect investigations by gathering tracks. The better investigations give purple rewards. When you search for a game to join generally these will go the fastest.
