Just based off her, name we assume Arch Tempered Kulve Taroth (ATKT) to be just the regular Kulve Taroth (RKT) but with more health and damage and maybe some altered moves, new moves altogether, and perhaps slightly modified behaviour.
But when we look at what we factually know from the stream, the specifically and explicitly state that ATKT will be the same as RKT, except that if you fulfill certain conditions during the fight, you'll get her to enter a new "Furied" state where she has new attacks and such, and also that if you fulfill certain conditions during the Siege, you will get Rainbow reward slots.
The footage shows "Incandescent weapons", which are red, presumably one tier above Sublimated weapons, they are obtained from Rainbow slots, but also Gold ones as well, though it seems Rainbow slots have a better chance at those.
We also know that ATKT permanently replaces RKT. This is a huge design and gameplay decision and there could be a hundred different ways this could be a terrible idea, unless…
If we take what was said in the stream literally… It leads me to think that ATKT will actually be identical to RKT in stats and everything, just with an upgraded drop pool, and a new Furied state that you can reach under special conditions, and new Rainbow rewards which are also obtained under special conditions.
Where's the Arch Tempered in ATKT, then, you may ask ? Well I think it lies entirely in this new Furied state, the special triggers and new behaviours probably emulate the Arch Tempered difficulty.
They also state that the Gamma armor set is crafted from ATKT materials, so I'm going to guess that you can obtain unique materials if you defeat Furied ATKT.
EDIT : A new interview of Ryozo Tsujimoto from Playstation has been released, and Ryozo states that you do have the choice of fighting ATKT just like a regular KT.
What do you think ?
