Decided to continue with Iceborne today, along with my buddies and it’s still such a great game. But at the moment we’re stuck, one monster is giving us a hard time and he’s called Black Veil Vaal Hazak. His attacks are just horrible and so damn hard to avoid, like those attacks where he blows some weird poison mist and his range is insane.
And at times I try to stand under him but then he lets loose the same kind of mist and this really fucks your health up badly. What can we do to actually stand a chance against this beast?
Also, this is something I’ve always wondered and never bothered to ask (not even after like 500 hours of MHW in total, lol). When I am attacking with my weapon, whether it’s a sword, dual blades etc and I press the left stick in a different direction my character doesn’t start aiming there. So basically very often my character is getting into a long ass combo(dual blades for example) where he keeps mashing away while the monster is already not in reach, can I not just “move” that attack towards the monster again?
Take Witcher 3 for example, if I’m slashing my sword forwards and I then want to attack behind me, I believe I can just hold the stick down and Geralt will do that. I can’t with MHW?
I’m still not sure what is more important. Should I always go for the highest defense for armor parts or something else? I often notice how my health gets destroyed in no time, even when my defense is high. I am doing something wrong, but what?
