Literally just skip this if you dont wanna read my story
I remember the high hype I had for the monster and grinding so unbelievably hard the week before its release. I crafted the entire safi beta set in 3 days and readied myself with the revalent elascura
The day of its release I didn't feel prepped enough to fight it and instead watch streams and videos of the first hand experiences of the battle. People were getting destroyed. I observed the first wave of people saying the fight sucked, and then learn its moves before finally achieving victory.
I noticed the recommended build was kjarr+ safi and attempted kulve in hopes for a kjarr weapon because RNGesus hates me. 5 hours done 3 times on 3 days and no kjarr LS of any sort. I kept my head up and crafted the Hoarcry stealer SNS, which took way too darn long because RNGesus hates me, and tried Alatreon only to fail miserably. I built the Beo DBs with a health augmentation and an element augmentation, got 2 horn breaks, failed still. I continued reading for strategies and I found one redditor that said, "Everyone will tell you what's best, but it's your main weapon that will win you this battle."
I hate the LS, I can't block with it and the punishes for failure are severe. But its my best weapon
I crafted the LS version of the hoarcry stealer and made a safi/velkhana build for TDVA and crit element. I tried for weeks. Failure. I tried in groups of 4, 3, 2. Always got farther solo, but still failure. I pinpointed my cause for failure for my in ability to consistently hit the head with the LS for a horn break, and EJ became my most common reason for death. I noticed I had the kjarr SA "stream" and leftover MR kulve materials. I upgraded it as much as I could and tried it with full safi. I am pretty good with SA and used it to cheese Alatreon in mhgen, but I just couldnt do it in iceborne. I was feeling hopeless. I crafted so many items. Frost charms. The entire gold rath and silver rath sets. 2 max kinsects. A kjarr insect glaive. Even the alatreon lbg but I couldnt max it due to lacking a dragonspire.
Then I heard about the developer diary announcing the final stand for what will be 7:00 AM tomorrow morning. I knew iceborne was a puzzle and hunting monsters in progression would solve it. Everytime you beat a big story monster they hint at another coming to turn everything upside down and even said Alatreon would not be that monster.
Fast forward to about an hour ago. Gold rathian helmet, chest, and waist with silver rath everything else. Aerial glaive 2 with Gleambug Volox
I am just in the zone. My first attempt of the day, my fourth with this build after 3 failures. I was expecting to lose. Enraged it through fire, met check, horn break, survived EJ, enraged again, met check, horn break, survived EJ, I was feeling pretty good but also worried. Only 15 minutes had passed and I was playing kinsect only. It switched to ice and I carted by its next EJ. It then switched to fire, met check again, survived EJ, ice, carted to EJ, fire , met check, survived EJ, ice, carted to EJ. This pattern continued until I had 10 minutes and 1 cart left. Cons said it only took 30 and I was about to clock out if I didnt faint first. I decide if I would fail the quest, it would be with my best gear. I quickly swapped to my lightbreak LS master's touch set and just go to town with Alatreon. It was in mid dragon when I killed it in mid air with about a minute on the clock left.
I was so happy my head started to hurt and my hands got all tingly. I really have to thank every hunter on this sub that has given me a tip, even if I've read it before. I doubt those same people will see this. But I finished the quest in honor of you guys. I can look back on my mhgen days and say I am still worthy even though beating iceborne Alatreon is wayy better and harder than old world Alatreon. I haven't felt this much joy in completing a quest since my first MH experience, the mhtri demo on 3ds, where I killed that stupid Lagombi. May I never struggle with a fight like that again
Also RNGesus showed me mercy and granted me a single dragonspire.
