    A few weeks ago I did some testing on Yogs and determined that their damage types and distribution is as follows:

    22% Impact
    30% Cut
    30% Stab
    18% Acid

    I did this testing on Level 5 Tunneller Yogs only. This damage distribution is not confirmed to be the same on all levels and maturities. In fact, it is generally known within the Monria community that the higher level Yogs also deal Cold damage. I haven't done any testing yet to find out in what proportion exactly, but I have found that most Level 6s and Level 11s on up do deal Cold. The level 7 Yogs don't deal Cold.

    If, like most of us, you do not currently own one of the incredibly cost-efficient healing tools such as an Adjusted Resto chip or Modified Fap, then it will be much more economical for you to protect yourself using the right combination of Armor and Plates.

    In my Armor Shop (Cthulhu Tower, Floor 9, Shop 3), you will find many Armor options suitable for hunting Yogs on Monria. However I would like to provide additional information regarding these options, i.e. which one is stronger, which one is more economical, what plates should be used, etc... The Armor set-ups below are listed from strongest to weakest against Yogs specifically. Note that some of these armor options are being listed here specifically because they are suitable for hunting other mobs on Monria, not just Yogs.

    When an Armor or Plate name is colored
    yellow, it means that this is an item which is available in the Monria Armor Shop (armor sets might not be available in both male and female, or might not be complete).

    First allow me a quick discussion about your choice of armor plates. Due to the type and distribution of the Yogs' damage, there are quite a few armor plates that will be of benefit to you. Your choice of which plates to use depends on whether your armor requires more Cut/Stab protection, or if it requires more Acid and/or Cold protection.

    Here they are below, listed from the highest level of protection to the lowest level of protection against Yogs:

    For armors that require a boost in Cut/Stab protection:
    RUDOLF Dragon plate mk3 (L) – 36 points of Cut/Stab
    MORRISON Dragon plate mk3 (L) – 34 points of Cut/Stab
    Moonshine plate 1 (L) – 33 points of Cut/Stab
    LEMMY Dragon plate mk1 (L) – 27 points of Cut/Stab
    Pulsar 8 (L) – 25 points of Cut/Stab
    POP Dragon plates mk1, mk2 & mk3 (L) – 20/22/26 points of Cut/Stab

    NEVERDIE Dragon plates mk1, mk2 and mk3 (L) – 16/20/24 points of Cut/Stab
    Pulsar 10 (L) – 18 points of Cut/Stab
    Mark.5B – 17 points of Cut/Stab


    For armors that require a boost in Acid protection:
    Pulsar 4 (L) – 27 Acid & 5 Impact (12000 durability)
    Mark.2E (L) – 22 Acid, 6 Impact & 3 Pen (13200 durability)
    GARCIA Dragon Plate mk1, mk2 & mk3 – 15/20/24 Acid & Burn

    Mark.6C (L) – 13 Acid & 5 Impact (13450 durability)
    JOPLIN Dragon Plate mk1, mk2 & mk3 – Acid, Impact & Penetration
    Mark.4A – 4 Acid, 6 Impact, 5 Cut & 2 Stab (1700 durability)
    Mark.2D (L) – 2 Acid, 2 Burn, 9 Impact, 4 Cut & 3 Stab (11990 durability)

    Mark.2C – 5 Acid, 3 Impact & 2 Cut (900 durability)

    For armors that require a boost in Cold protection:
    Mark.4E (L) – 26 Cold, 7 Cut & 2 Pen (14200 durability)
    Pulsar 3 (L) – 26 Cold & 5 Cut (11500 durability)
    Ozpyn Cold Protector (L) – 7 Cold (1500 durability)

    For armors that require a boost in both Acid & Cold protection:
    HENDRIX Dragon Plate mk1, mk2 & mk3 – Cold, Acid & Electric
    Mark.5D – 12 Cold, 6 Acid, 4 Pen, 2 Cut & 2 Stab (1900 durability)
    Mark.4D (L) – 7 Cold, 6 Acid, 8 Electric & 2 Impact (13150 durability)

    A comment on the armor recommendations below:

    The more you hunt and the more your Evade skill increases. The higher your Evade, the fewer hits will be inflicted onto you by the mob. In addition to that, if your skills allow you to use higher level weapons, you will be able to kill mobs more rapidly, affording them less time for which to deal you damage. Some of you may find that the recommended protection below is too high for your needs and I understand that. Take into consideration your hunting skills before making a selection. These armor suggestions are for an average hunter, a hunter with enough skills to kill these Shubs but an Evade level somewhere between 12 and 18.

    Armor recommendations for hunting Yogs, listed from strongest to weakest:
    Mayhem (L): Hunt anything with this set! For the bigger Yog bosses in the Yog waves, the plates which add Acid protection like Mark.2E (L) will be most helpful to you.

    Rutuba (L): Will definitely deflect all of the damage dealth by the level 24 Broodmother without any plates. It is a looted armor whose parts can be time consuming and expensive to collect but I search for and acquire whatever I can and make it available for you in The Monria Armor Shop. For the bigger Yog bosses in the Yog waves, the plates which add Cut/Stab protection like Pulsar 8 (L) will be the most helpful.

    Aquila (L):
    This armor is one of the best choices a Monria hunter could make, it's perfect for hunting Yogs and Cultists without having to add any plates and it will also do very well on lower level Shubs. For the bigger Yog bosses in the Yog waves, the plates which add Cut/Stab protection like Pulsar 8 (L) will be the most helpful.

    Perseus (L) + Plates with Cold (Mark.4E or Pulsar 3): This set-up will definitely deflect all of the damage dealth by the level 24 Broodmother. For a full TT set of Perseus, you are looking at roughly 1.5k ped though, this could detract a few prospective buyers from it. For Yogs and Cultists, add Pulsar 3 plates, for Shubs, add a Pulsar 9, NEVERDIE or JOPLIN plate.

    Ozpyn Beetle (L) + Plates with Impact/Cut/Stab (Mark.5B or Pulsar 8): The Ozpyn Beetle armor is the perfect set for hunting Yogs, it's protection against Impact, Cut, Stab and Acid is proportionate to the damage inflicted by Yogs and so the Ozpyn Beetle can just be used as-is without any plates. Just add Mark.5B or Pulsar 8 plates and the Yog Broodmother is a breeze! You can also use the Ozpyn Beetle for hunting Cultists and Shubs by simply adding Pulsar 5 plates to it! And with a markup of about 112%, the Ozpyn Beetle is much, much cheaper than the first 4 sets above!

    Moonshine (L) + Plates with Acid (Mark.2E or Pulsar 4): This set-up will deflect all of the damage dealt by the Level 24 Broodmother.

    Tiger (L) + Plates with Stab/Cut (Pulsar 8 or Mark.8A): Tiger (L) is one of my favorite mid-level armor sets. It's protection stats are a tiny bit better than Disco, but you'll still need Pulsar 8 (L) or similar plates to go up against the Level 24 Broodmother.

    Disco (L) / Jaguar (L) + Plates with Stab/Cut (Pulsar 8 or Mark.8A): Jaguar and Disco have exactly the same protection statistics except that Disco has an added 5 points of protection for Electric, which makes no difference on Monria because there is no mob dealing Electric damage there. But Disco is an armor that I craft and sometimes sell in the Armor Shop. It is a good, cost-effective option. Disco may not deflect all of the damage dealt by the level 24 Broodmother but with the Pulsar 8 plates added, it will absorb the majority of it.

    A.R.C. Patrol (L) or A.R.C. Inaugurates (L) + Plates with Imp/Cut/Stab (Mark.5B or Pulsar 8): This set is usually affordable and is a great option as well for hunting Yogs in the South Crater. Any armor plates with Impact/Cut/Stab protection will boost it's effectiveness. It's quite likely that you could fight the level 24 Broodmother with this set and Pulsar 8 plates and take little damage. The A.R.C Patrol can also be quite effective against Cultists.

    Bear (L) or Boar (L) + Plates with Imp/Cut/Stab (Mark.5B or Pulsar 8): I have hunted a lot of Yogs with my Bear armor set so I know first hand what it can do. These are both very good mid-level armors, add some plates to them and hunting Yogs up to level 18 will be no problem.

    Jarhead (L): This armor will need some Acid or Acid/Cold plates added as it doesn't have a lot of either. I would go for either Mark.6C, Mark.5D or Mark.4D.

    Gremlin or Viceroy + Plates with Imp/Cut/Stab (recommend Pulsar 8): Might struggle against the level 24 Broodmother and need to heal, but should do fine against all other levels. If you own a set of Gremlin or Viceroy, then go for the Pulsar 8 plates because you will really benefit from the boost in Cut protection against Yogs.

    Sema (L) & Lupus (L): Good for hunting lower level Yogs. Add Pulsar 8 plates to hunt higher level Yogs. Might work up to level 16s.

    Pixie or Musca Adjusted: Good for hunting lower level Yogs. Add Pulsar 8 plates to hunt higher level Yogs. Might work up to level 16s.

    Goblin: The Goblin armor will be ok for hunting the lower level Yogs, if you add Impact/Cut/Stab plates to it. With Pulsar 8 plates equipped, you should be able to hunt Yogs up to about level 11.

    --
    I hope you have found this write-up on Yogs, their damage and recommended protection, to be informative. I have spent a tremendous amount of time researching armors in order to be able to provide this much detail. I hope it is of some help to you.

    Many of the armors and plates mentioned above are made available through the Monria Armor Shop, which is shop #3 in the Cthulhu tower.

    As always, I appreciate your visit and am open to any feedbacks anyone whishes to provide.

    Cheers and happy Yog hunting o/

    Thanks for taking the time to do your research and presenting this information. I'm sure it will be useful to many as the Yog is our most popular mob.

    As a side-note ... unless the price increased, I have not paid more than 1600 ped for a set of Perseus at full condition.

    I love the Disco armor, and with no plates, I can handle the Yogs nicely. The level 24 Broodmother however needs a little extra protection.

    Yes, I'm starting with the Yog because I have noticed it is the one people hunt most. I'll probably do a similar thread for Shubs next, then Cultists.

    Oh thanks DME, that's supposed to say "well over 1k ped" :)

    Yes Disco is great for Yogs, if you have a set of Pulsar 8 plates, can you please put them on your Disco and test them on the level 24 Broodmother and let us know how it goes. If I'm right, the Pulsar 8 plates should make the Broodmother manageable :)

    Although Disco is currently in the Cultist room, it should be known that all the armors in the Cultist room are great for hunting Yogs as well. The biggest difference between the Cultists and Yogs is that Cultists do a substantial amount of Penetration damage, whereas Yogs don't do any Penetration damage, but they both do Acid and Cold. That means that almost any armor which is good for Cultists will also be good for hunting Yogs. But armors which are good for hunting Yogs won't necessarily be good for Cultists unless they have protection for Penetration damage. For example, Gremlin is a great armor for Yogs but doesn't have any Penetration protection, so not good for Cultists.

    Cheers o/

    I just wanted to mention one thing about the Cultists ... when I got my first set of Perseus, it was so I could play with the big Shubs and join everyone in the Shub cavern during our Valentine's Day event, but ...

    When I took on the big Cultist (level 36 K'Tans), I was surprised that I took as much damage as I did. Long story short, Perseus has no Cold protection, and when I added the Pulsar 3 cold plates, I could take on 3 K'Tans at once with ease and even did a video showing it.

    So, it's also important to mention that cold protection is also key when taking on the Cultists.

    @Kendra Thanks for your feedback, I'm happy to do it if it can help someone :)

    Regarding ads, summer is a slow time, I would like to wait a bit, maybe until next VU. Also, I want to maximize word of mouth first and fine tune the offering (I'm still working on new and better inventory). Once I'm happy with everything and when the timing is right, I just might do some in-game ads. (Maybe we can go halfsies on an Ad on Calypso?)

    The thing about selling armor though is that unless you have THE armor shop (Auktuma/Drakill's armor outlet on Calypso) where players are coming from all over the universe to browse through the dozens and dozens of Armors you have to offer, sales are far and few between. Once a player has a set of Disco, it will be a couple of months before he's back for another, IF he wants another. It's not like guns or mining amps where it's possible to go through a couple of those in 1 gaming session.

    @DME Yes and I understand why many Monria residents own and use Perseus (L), it is available and of the uber sets, it is reasonably affordable at around 140-150%.

    If Aquila (L) was as available and affordable as the Perseus (L), it would be a better option for the Monria mobs, because it has both Cold and Acid protection, as well as Impact/Cut/Stab and Penetration.

    Everything else is more expensive. Angel, Shadow, Rutuba, ... They are all more expensive then Perseus and harder to come by, so unless you already have it, it's just easier to get Perseus.

    However, there are a few specialized sets out there that could be used with the right plates and be a cheaper option. I am working on obtaining some of that for the shop :)

    I have completely overhauled this thread so as to have the information laid out in the exact same way as the Shub Armor Recommendation thread has it laid out. Notably, I have done the following:

    - Added a section for Armor Plates, listing those that will be useful against Yogs from Strongest to Weakest
    - Converted the Armor Recommendations section into one long list from Strongest to Weakest
    - Highlighted in yellow the names of plates and armors which are currently available in the shop

    I hope the new format will be easier to review.

    Happy Yog hunting o/

    UPDATE:

    Moved the following armor sets to my Merry Mayhem Armor Shop on Calypso:

    Moonshine (M,L)
    Rutuba (M,L)
    Shadow (M,L)
    Disco (M,L)
    Angel (F,L)
    Rutuba (F,L)
    Disco (F,L)
    Aquila (F,L)

    Please be advised that there could be reduced stock at the Monria Armor Shop throughout the duration of the Merry Mayhem event as I focus most of my energy on my Merry Mayhem Armor Shop @ Livas Heights #10 on Calypso.

    Thanks for understanding,

    BIG UPDATE!

    1. Added another full set of Merry Mayhem (F,L) and highlighted that yellow above.
    2. Added sets of A.R.C. Inaugurates (M,L) & (F,L) armor and that is now
    yellow. Great set for hunting both Yogs and lower level Cultists!
    3. Jarhead is here! I have now added complete sets of Jarhead (F,L) & (M,L) to the Yog room and highlighted Jarhead
    yellow above. Add some Acid plates like Mark.5D, Mark.2C or Ozpyn Acid plates to Jarhead to hunt Yogs more effectively.
    4. A set of Jaguar (F,L) has been added and Jaguar (L) is now yellow. Also great for lower level Cultists!
