    I can't get the goddamn purplefur. I hear it has an abysmal drop rate outside of the 3P, but I go for the 3P and get fucked by my partners. I've only cleared it 1/3 times, and of course I got the wrong drop the one time. Is it better to do UG and pray? Or do I play the lottery and hope I find Anubis players that can 8c and DAth players that can do more than 4c?

    I'm laughing at this, not because I'm amused by your misfortune, because believe me, I'm sympathetic...

    ...but I'm laughing because this is really typical Monster Hunter. You REALLY NEED a Rathian Ruby (or something) to finally upgrade your weapon but it has only a 1% drop rate, *IF* you manage to wound its back, and a whole 3% drop rate if you capture it instead of killing it and you have to hunt a Rathian OVER AND OVER AND OVER....

    My sympathies...

    4-5 succesful 3P runs, no blue drop.

    My first blue drop was the purplefur. Wish my luck was with the REM and not with farming...

    Yeah, I had a lot of fun running the 3P dungeon over and over and over again, consistently with people who clearly shouldnt have been running Annihilation-level content.

    I was running a Revo Asty team with 5 Revo Astys (four with double dragon killer latents) and Double Devil Killer Mito. Hello to anyone who ran with me :D. The following advice only applies when using the Auto-match:

    I strongly suggest using an unbindable team, as every spawn binds once you kill the previous floor. Unfortunately Ra Dragon would be tough to use with Astalos' orb locking shenanigans and not enough damage.

    Youll want to be tanky and unbindable. I used Asty because I could clear it solo if the other guys died. Some people were running Awoken Inahime with Double Dragon Killer Tsubakis and were crushing it. (Both leads have bind clear so it worked well).

    I also saw a 3P swipe build on Reddit here:



    Im so glad I'm done with everything. Built all 6 hunters and max skilled every card in the collab. Yesterday was painful.

    I cleared with Radra kinda solo actually when everyone DCd. Got super lucky though on the final floor where he does the awakening bind. I managed to fully activate despite no te and got some skyfalls. Yeah this dungeon is hell though. I'd imagine dantalion could do it though as the damage there is nuts but I rarely have any friends with him up.

    I just farmed 2P co op for mine. Got it around my third run, which I guess is lucky.

    What irritates me is that the 3P dungeon is 99 sta PER person PER run. 50 per person would have made it reasonable.

    Holy shit. My condolences LOL

    I finally got my blue hunter, had to find partners on the reddit discord. Used Ilm x Ilmina for the 7x6, partners pretty much carried me with Anubis/Kushi/etc.

    Are you doing the non-3P one? That's the best way to get scales.

    Huh, weird. I almost always got the scales when Mizutsune showed up on the 50 stam one.

    Yeah, the purple fur was a bitch to get for me as well. It ended up dropping from the 99 stam one. I'd only suggest farming that if you're able to solo clear it. Stick with the random crew for the first like 2 rounds of turns if they're bearable, and if they turn out to be awful, just DC. I've died way too many times trying to stick around.

    If the information in PadGuide is correct, the Mizutsune Purplefur drops from Int.

    So I guess you could button-farm the dungeon?

    But I don't know if I'd trust data from third-party sources on this seeing as even the information for the MH collab on PDX is incorrect in spots.
