The Empress of Flame has arrived in Monster Hunter World and is taking no prisoners. Capcom’s latest Elder Dragon went live recently and has been giving Hunters a hard time with her constant flaming. The arrival of a new monster also means new loot though and there’s quite a lot to earn this time.
As Arekkz Gaming explains below, Lunastra’s armour sets offer a number of decent skills though the Empress Mail Beta chest will likely be sought after the most. Not only does it have Peak Performance Level 2 but three gem slots as well. This pairs well with some of the new Lunastra weapons. In a unique twist, there are three possible weapons that can be created for each Tree.
For example, after crafting a Lunastra weapon, it can be upgraded further to have the Guts skill unique to Bazelgeuse. It can also be upgraded into a Nergigante weapon (Hasten Recovery) or Xeno’jiiva weapon (Razor Sharp/Spare Shot). Those looking to further diversify their sets will have plenty to work with, especially with the new Arch-Tempered monsters coming next week.
