mhw: canteen rare ingredients


Since I’m solidly in the Monster Hunter World endgame now, I figure I want to start documenting some stuff into guide-like format for interest/posterity. I do frequent /r/MonsterHunter/, so I get exposed to many of the commonly asked questions, which would frequently benefit from a guide with pictures!

So, to start off, here are the locations for the rare canteen ingredients!

You should be aware of the research point gathering spots on each map, the ones that give you a canteen ingredient from a rare gather? Well, I just found out the other day that there’s an even more rare gather, specifically there is a unique gathering node only when the locale has “Flourishing” or “Upsurge” for that type of node. For example, in Coral Highlands, an “Upsurge: Pearl Oysters” will spawn a unique Pearl Oyster node. Gathering at that node will give you an account item for a new canteen ingredient!

I will update this post as I get more screenshots! Warning that this technically spoils some areas and names if you haven’t unlocked them yet. If you just want a hint for where you find it, you can ignore my description and only use the screenshot, or maybe the minimap on the screenshot :)

I’ll be posting random screenshots and videos on my Twitter, if you’re interested!


more games to add to the backlog!

Welp, my Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online Limited Edition came in, yet another game for me to add to my backlog. I do enjoy IFI’s LEs, so I figured I should keep collecting them. I will get around to playing them all… some day…

The CD in the paper sleeve is a reprint of the CD in the plastic-wrapped jewel case because the silk print on the first batch of CDs apparently wasn’t up to IFI’s standards or… something… O.o



eve online is my absolute favorite game to read about that i will never ever play


kadowaki mai has the best fgo party

Kadowaki Mai is the voice actor for Ilya in all the Fate properties, and this is an English-subbed Chaldea Radio where they take a look at Kadowaki’s party in Fate/Grand Order. It’s… kind of incredibly amazing :o

Kadowaki’s voice is subbed in pink, while the dark blue is Takahashi Rie, who voices Mash, and the yellow is Tanaka Minami, who voices Nitocris, a character who appears in the 6th singularity.

Now I feel like I need to study all the voiced lines to come up with a crazy party :O


fgo for newbies: palingenesis

A friend asked me a Fate/GO question about which I thought was worth writing a short post. “Do I want to do Ascension or Palingenesis?”

Fate/Grand Order: Ascension

Fate/Grand Order: Palingenesis

A quick lesson on FGO history, Palingenesis was not added to the Japanese version until the First Anniversary event, specifically on August 6, 2016. That means the key Palingenesis item, the Holy Grails, were just useless paperweights prior to this event, and there was a lot of speculation before then on what exactly the item would be used for.

Flash forward to the US version, where we know that they have implemented “all the quality of life improvements from the Japanese game at launch.” This includes, for some reason, Palingenesis, even though most people will be unable to use it for another few months when the ability to farm certain ascension items is opened.

EDIT: I previously wrote that Ushiwakamaru’s interlude was not appearing as an odd side effect of the game implementation. With some research, I found out that her interlude was released along with the Okeanos singularity, so this is not a bug or oversight. My apologies for any confusion caused or misinformation spread.
