All New Armor Skills In the New Update 2 in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

The number of new Armor skills that were introduced during update 2 is only 3. The new Armor kills are:

  • Intrepid Heart
  • Embolden
  • Buildup Boost

Let’s Take a look into each of these skills, and see exactly what makes them special and exciting in the current update 2.

Intrepid Heart

The Intrepid Heart is derived from the Flaming Espinas Armor set. Intrepid Heart is applied on each hand and leg piece. Specifically,  1 level of Intrepid heart on the Flaming Espinas Heel and Flaming Espinas Grip.

Visually, it looks great. Moreover, Intrepid Heart reduces damage reactions and damage taken after filling up a blue bar by repeatedly landing attacks. On level two, it even activates an explosion on top of reducing damage received.

Embolden

This armor skill is suited for Defensive types of players. Especially when you use a guarding weapon since it stacks with the Embolden armor skill effect.

Embolden enrages the monster when it targets you When enraged, you will get a useful defense boost. At max level, you get +40 defense, prolong dodging invincibility, and reduce impact when guarding.

Buildup Boost

Buildup Boost is specifically applied on the chest, gloves, and legs of the armor set. Buildup Boost increases your attack power whenever you land attacks that build special effects like poison, paralysis, sleep, blast, or exhaust.

At level 3, you get an attack boost that is up to 20%. It’s basically a straight-up damage boost on top of applying your deadly status effect. This will definitely be useful for players doing a status effect build.

Now there you have it! These are the new exciting new armor skills you can choose from the new update. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to gear up and slay some monsters!

SWTOR G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3

How far will your reputation take you?

swtor game reputation guide for galactic season 3

Star Wars: The Old Republic is BioWare MMORPG based on the acclaimed Star Wars universe. As Galactic Season 3 kicked in, so did new challenges. Today, we’re talking about G.A.M.E., a new reputation system introduced along with this new season.

G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3 – SWTOR

In SWTOR, Galactic Seasons are long seasonal events that grant limited-time rewards upon the completion of daily and weekly challenges dubbed Priority Objectives. Subscribers earn extra rewards, but everyone can participate.

Season 3, titled Luck of the Draw, brought with it the Gambling Authority and Management Entity, popularised by the acronym G.A.M.E. Basically, it’s a new form to track your reputation. But it comes with a few differences.

Unlike the other reputation tracks, G.A.M.E. is tied into Season 3. Another difference is that you won’t be able to see the reputation track for G.A.M.E. until you earn 1 reputation point with the faction.

First of all, you’ll need to unlock the first level of the Season 3 track. This will allow you to claim the PH4-LNX Protocol Lockbox and, with it, activate the new companion, PH4-LNX (Fey, as she likes to be called).

As you play through Season 3, you might notice that some quests and enemy drops give a new type of currency known as the G.A.M.E. Analysis Module.

When Fey is on your ship, you can take those Modules to her and convert them into G.A.M.E. reputation. Each Module is worth 25 Reputation Points (37 if you’re a Subscriber).

Note that you can only hold up to 200 Analysis Modules and only earn up to 200 per week. Additionally, you can only earn 5.000 Reputation Points per week, no matter how many boosts you have.

If you’re wondering about the math of it all, you’ll need 70.000 Reputation Points to reach max reputation, which accounts for 2.800 Modules without any boost. Good luck!

(And I’m sorry to report there are no ways to farm the Modules. Having Fey as your companion, however, increases the chance of enemies dropping more of the item. You can also trade 500 Jawa Junk (purple) for Jawa Intel with Brrazz in Cartel Bazaar.)

There are two bugs worth mentioning. One, be careful with skipping Fey’s dialogue since it might cause the Reputation Points to not enter your inventory.

Second, if you’re in a group, you might be unable to talk to Fey at all. To correct that, you’ll need to leave the group, turn in your Modules, and then re-join the group.

Now, for the big question: what are the rewards?

You can earn three legacy titles associated with G.A.M.E.: G.A.M.E. Representative, Mid-level Management, and Deputy Director of G.A.M.E.

Aside from that, the G.A.M.E. reputation track is actually more about helping you to earn rewards on the Season Tracker faster, so don’t expect unique rewards here.

Either way, I hope you enjoy Season 3 of Star Wars: The Old Republic!
