Still working your way through Monster Hunter Stories 2? Struggling with the Elder’s Lair? Wish Monster Hunter Generations’ Fated Four’s deviant versions could all be in-game? Well, good news! Capcom’s MHS2 September 2nd update is bringing Soulseer Mizutsune, Elderfrost Gammoth, and Oroshi Kirin, as well as Ice and Water Egg hunts to multiplayer.
As water’s highest-rated monsties are currently only 5 out of 7 stars, the latest update should make water elemental battles easier while giving ice battlers more options. Both of these are important as the Elder’s Lair PvE portion of the game contains a few gimmick areas, and these elements make some of those battles significantly easier. However, a proper “Fated Four” encounter won’t come until the September 16th update, which also unleashes Dreadking Rathalos, Molten Tigrex, plus a “High Difficulty” version of Kulve Taroth.
Finally, as a public service announcement for those who were put off by the low stats of their Gammoth, the monstie is a “slow grower” in terms of stats, so don’t worry about the Elderfrost version being weak. Just be prepared to put in a little effort before seeing some payoff.
