@Lurking Krog We have a Fathomless Warlock, and a Lizardfolk Druid
The status bar was a mistake but it's a beautiful mistake and I love it because it's fun and I can shitpost like a champ and get like 5 likes and feel accomplished before looking around at the filth pile surrounding me, lit only by the glow of my monitor, sigh, then think of the next way to fill my life with meaning. It's great.

DLC for G-Rank is a good thing though, because the MH team has never thought that G-Rank should be in the base game. Starting all the way back in 2005 they have been releasing the G-Rank expansions as completely separate games, full retail price, which continued until Iceborne. If they continued the trend then Sunbreak would be a separate game for full price. I guess some might prefer it that way, since skipping the base game and just buying the G-Rank version saves more money than base+DLC, but the release model they had before was always something I saw the community complain about so they "fixed" it.
