@  piratefinn : (24 October 2014 - 07:19 PM) I can understand no matchmaking. Vault with no communication would be a NIGHTMARE. destinylfg.net and other sites are good to find people though
@  piratefinn : (24 October 2014 - 07:17 PM) Hmm, I'll go look. I havent done Vault this week.
@  Joker : (24 October 2014 - 06:42 PM) For anyone interested, I'm going to go ahead and post my PSN in the Destiny thread in the video games section.
@  Joker : (24 October 2014 - 06:39 PM) I need friends for the raid and weekly heroic strike missions on Destiny as well. Why on earth Bungie didn't implement a matchmaking system for those playlists is beyond me. They hype Destiny as being this amazing interactive social game, yet you can't find people to friggin' play it with. Well done.

@  S13driftAZ : (23 October 2014 - 07:05 PM) hey im trying to find a cheat.db or code i can paste for MHFU. Do any of you remember one that lets you buy absolutely everything in game from the merchant by the guild?
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 06:26 AM) Really? Hmm, you talking Warframe? On the PS4 we still on 1.4.8 and our raid still has a day and a half to go before it gets shut down for good. I hope to do the 5 raids left for the weapon but if not then no biggie. I got the mods already and they are by far the best catch, the event weapon is just for collectors purposes as they usually suck ass compared to ones you farm.
@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 06:20 AM) And we really need a full team of 6. It /can/ be done with smaller groups but I, personally, don't feel leet enough to carry more than 1/6th of the weight.
@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 06:19 AM) I tried the raid a week or so ago with some friends but we weren't able to finish it. And then we weren't all able to reconvene in time to get it done that week. And one member hasn't been on since then, as far as I know.
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 04:40 AM) But when I go home I must play 5 rounds of Warframe in Phobos! Want the event weapon before the event ends! rawr!
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 04:40 AM) It is the online cooties. Everyone gets them. You go from A team to B team to C team, all in seconds at times, Other times, you are the S team the heavens smile on you and the chicks line up to see you! Such is life.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (23 October 2014 - 04:24 AM) I've finished Destiny's storyline already, now I'm just putzing around on those raid missions. The ineptitude of some people is astounding...and it's even more shocking when suddenly it's me being the scrub.

@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 03:37 AM) You too huh?
@  Halcyon Dtier : (23 October 2014 - 02:02 AM) too busy with Destiny to play D3
@  Halcyon Dtier : (23 October 2014 - 02:02 AM) Grats.
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 12:27 AM) But I fully beat Diablo II RoS with my trusty crusader yesterday! Now to get it to level 70! Oo And do Rifts!
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 12:26 AM) It is slow day in the hood! Don't have class again for another 2 hours.

Alongside Generu Serutas, this week also brings new information on the new weapon type Neopteron Handler. 

yiV70op.jpg


First off we've been given a bit more information on the buff system. We already knew that you can get different extract colors depending on what part of the monster you hit, and that each of the four colors is associated with a buff type (white for speed, red for attack, orange for defense, green for health recover). Now we know that white can be added to a different color to enhance it. White + Orange will give you a large defense buff. You can also "double up" by getting two whites while another buff is active. For example, white + orange for Defense Up Large followed by white + white will give you an Earplugs effect. There's also an as yet unexplained "triple up" boost you can get by filling all three slots with white extract. It seems that we don't get a message stating the buff, like we do with HH, but instead we can identify the buff by the aura lines around around character and their color. Furthermore, extract colors also alter your attack moves. 
 
You can see some gameplay footage for Neopteron Handler in this video (skip to 9:58): 

 
The Neopteron Handler is different from other weapon types in that you upgrade the staff and the Hunting Bug separately. We can see five bug types shown in the screenshots: ザミールビートル (Zamiiru Beetle, power type), ハルキータ (Harukiita), ガルーヘル (Garuuheru, speed type), マルドローン (Maru Drone) and エボマルドローン (Ebo Maru Drone). Each has its own look, we've seen a butterfly ( ガルーヘル), a beetle (ザミールビートル), and a ladybug. You can mix and match these bugs with each of the staves, though it looks like there's a small item cost to doing so. The screenshots show equipping the Bone Glave with ガルーヘル requiring 2 Monster Bone+, 2 Generu Serutas claws, 1 Large Monster Bone, and 3 Frogs. Each Hunting Bug has its own stats, as you can guess by "speed type" and "power type". The stats for Hunting Bugs are Power, Stamina, Speed, and then one for each of the five elements. You can alter these stats by giving them bug food at the weaponsmith. These foods are acquired by gathering in quests and through quest rewards. The screenshots show two pages of bug food with the first page going up to 8 food types, so there are at least 8-16 foods, but if we assume that the list shown is incomplete, the pattern would suggest at least 40 different bug foods! Bug foods will increase stats but also decrease others. We can see Power Food: Fire that boosts Power and Fire Element by 1 each but reduces Water Element by 2. Hunting Bugs start off dealing shot-type damage to monsters, but you can use food to add element. As you give your Hunting Bugs food they gain points and eventually level up.

Interesting. Very interesting. Sounds extremely versatile, though it also requires a little more work and a little more managing than the other weapons.

Yeah, complexity in exchange for power, perhaps. Similar to bowguns, but it looks like it will involve a little less prep work.

Wow this weapon type continues to look so fun! If there was no region lock on my 3DS I would not be waiting the long and painful wait for it to be released in Canada. I'd be importing my copy like I did for MHP3rd! x'3
