First of all, let me state that the title is a bit of lie. This blog is for everything in Frontier up to 4.0 (inclusive). Get those commenting hats on!
Hypnocatrice and Lavasioth are introduced, along with the Sea of Trees. Of course, Hypnoc and Lavasioth later show up in Unite, so they already have their own MAD blogs. The Sea of Trees/Greatforest is also found in Unite (albeit with some minor changes, I believe).
Of course, what's Monster Hunter without Subspecies? Red Lavasioth and Bright Hypnoc were introduced some time after the 1.5 update.
Espinas introduced! The first Frontier exclusive monster that has in fact remained exclusive to Frontier. What do you make of him? I think his whole 'I'm not going to attack you, dammit' gimmick is at l…
Again, a lie. Last Frontier DotW blog got up to 10.0, so I'll be doing the next three from there. We'll be caught up soon!
Frontier moves to the 'Forward' system of numbering, which does at least seem more imaginative than 11.0, I suppose. And Forward 1 is a genuinely great update; the new monster, Rukodiora is one I like the look of a great deal. Sure, it sticks closely to the original Elder Dragon skeleton, but the wings are unique, and it's element - magnetism - is also unique and surprisingly well implemented. I bet that swirling rock around him gets annoying as hell though.
Rukodiora gets a new area all of his very own - the Interceptor's Base although as it's basically the Town again the standard town-destroying monsters show up there …
Once again, the title is a whopping great lie. This blog is for everything in Frontier up to 7.0 (inclusive) (but post 4.0, because we covered up to 4.0 in an older blog).
Let's get started!
Pariapuria is introduced. A great big frog-esque monster; certainly unmistakable. And it does have an interesting idea going on with the meat-eating thing.
5.0 also introduced a new Mezoporta Square, Parone, and Pearl Hunter System, but I don't pretend to understand what most of those words mean.
Subspecies time! That didn't take long. Although as this is the 2nd Anniversary of Frontier Online, I think we can cut them some slack.
Espinas Rare Species was introduced to the Great Forest Peak. That poison fireball bomb... impressive stuff.
This is also when the Ras…
