My second attempt at hunting Plesioth went much more smoothly but it was still frustrating. Even though I actually could kill since I was using the weapon I intended to use but never equipped it, I went for the capture.
Now I'm trying to figure out which would be faster either do *7 Village quest to reach *8 to fight Brachydios, or try to reach HR 3(currently only HR 1) to take on the Brachydios Challenge quest. I'd like to make it's weapon just to see how good slime is. I've heard going solo there decent especially with DS(but not so great with slow weapons). I know online if all 4 players are using slime they can take down monster's ridiculously fast cause it's broken.
