Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World

Easy "Angling For A Bite" achievement:
You will automatically have a fishing rod in your inventory after you
complete the prologue (when you reach Astera for the first time and get
your weapons). Go on an expedition (for example, in the Ancient Forest),
and find a small lake or go to the ocean. Select the fishing rod and aim
it at the water. As soon as a fish bites (food starts moving), immediately
reel in the fish. An easy fishing spot is on the Ancient Forest map,
Southwest Camp (1). Just a little east of the camp you can see a pool
of water on the map.

Secret Horizon: Zero Dawn costume:
For a limited time, you can unlock a special Horizon: Zero Dawn costume for your Palico. It turns them into a Watcher robot from Horizon: Zero Dawn, including the Watcher grinder melee weapon. To get it, progress through the game until you reach HR 6 or higher, and select the "Lessons Of The Wild" special event. This arena fight requires you to fight eight flying Barons, which is not too hard. You will be rewarded with a watcher lense. To get the full Watcher body armor and Watcher grinder, you need to complete the event three times to get three watcher lenses.

Easy money:
Progress in the story until you unlock the "Prickly Predicament" three star
optinal quest. Talk to the Chief Botanist in the Botanical Research section to
get the quest. Complete it by collecting 20 Cactuses, then return to him to
unlock the ability to cultivate and grow Might Seeds. The Might Seeds are
extremely valuable and can be sold for 140 zenny. Simply place a might seed in
the cultivation slot and let it multiply while you are out doing quests. After
you return from quests, grab the might seeds and sell them at the shop. To speed the farming process up, unlock the second cultivating slot to grow twice as much. To unlock the second cultivating slot, complete the "Persistent Pests" four star optional quest.

Wear the Bandit Mantle for monsters to drop rare trade-in items when attacked.
To get the Bandit Mantle, complete the "Redefining The Power Couple" five star
quest. Trade-in items are essentially junk items that are only useful for selling.
They cannot be used to craft or upgrade -- so you do not have to worry about
selling useful monster parts. To activate the Bandit Mantle, string attacks until the mantle begins to glow. Once activated, the effect will last a set amount of time, causing items to drop from the monster. Whenever you are doing quests, you can earn trade-in items with it. The higher level the monster, the more valuable the trade-in items. Everyone in your team can also use the Bandit Mantle, multiplying your earnings. Go back and fight weak monsters from earlier quests using your high-level gear, and you can get 10,000+ zenny in a few minutes. If all allies are wearing Bandit Mantles, you can get more than 30,000+ zenny in a few minutes.

Easy Armor Spheres:
Armor Spheres are increasingly important near the end of the game. Armor Sphere
allow you to upgrade your body armor parts, and you need a lot of them if you want to max out your complete set. However, if you stock up on spheres early in the game, you can have a good amount to upgrade your favorite armor set towards the end. Use the following method to get lots of Armor Spheres. Go to the Resource Center in Astera and register bounties. These range from collecting plants to slaying monsters. The easiest way by far is to collect items like flora, honey, mushrooms, bonepiles, or mining ore. All these items can easily be tracked on the world map and completed while you are doing quests. To complete them, return to the Resource Center in Astera and turn them in for one armor sphere each. If you make it a habit to do bounties before activities and turning them in after, you can get 4+ spheres after every 1-2 quest.

Legiana monster location:
Legiana is a monster that can be found in Coral Highlands during the "Embodiment
Of Elegance" hunting quest. Before you can hunt Legiana, you have to first find him, which can be difficult. The Coral Highlands is probably the most difficult land to navigate in the game. It is filled with platforms and vertical gameplay that can make it easy to get lost. Travel north in Coral Highlands until you reach the wide open area in Zone 8. Straight ahead (north) is a large wall you can climb. This is the place where you can expect to start seeing footprints and signs of Legiana. If you cannot see him in this area, follow the way and climb up towards Zone 13 to eventually encounter Legiana.

Unlocking Ropelift:
To unlock the "Ropelift" fast transportation tool, you need to reach Coral Highlands and visit the Research Center. Check in with the Airship Engineer on the top floor. He will give you a delivery request for five Shamon Hides and one Sturdy Bone. You will also have to give 1,000 research points. Both of these delivery items can be found in the Coral Highland, and you can quickly get the Ropelift transportation. For the Shamon Hides, check the moving enemy dots on the map and hunt five Shamons. Sturdy Bones can be found in different bone piles around the Coral Highlands. Once you have all materials and research points, go to Astera and complete the delivery quest at the resource center to unlock the Ropelift station in Coral Highlands. They make it a lot easier to travel around and move up and down the levels.

Unlocking extra meal recipes:
Whether you are at the Canteen in home base or are sitting by your camp in the field, both kitchens are identical. Every meal has set specific ingredients types with a small chance of success for the following buffs. You can greatly increase the chances of obtaining these buffs by using fresh ingredients. You can further increase the potency of the buffs through procuring new ingredient options. Whenever you are at home base, go to the kitchen. The chef often has an "!" over his head, indicating he has something important to say. Usually he will give you optional quests such as The Pain from Gains and Exterminator Of The Waste. The Meowscular Chef can only be found at the main kitchen -- so make sure you check from time to time. Get the quests and complete them to get new meal recipes.

Easy powerful end-game armor:
Successfully complete the "A Colossal Task" assignment to reach Hunter Rank 11 and unlock the High Rank quests, putting you into the end-game. You can now farm Zorah Magdaros for powerful armor. Every Zorah Magdaros quest will drop monster materials, but the final "A Colossal Task" assignment provides the most. The "A Colossal Task" quest will randomly appear on your quest board. There is a chance it will appear at any time after returning from a quest and resetting the board, but it is quite rare. However, SOS Flares allow you to get around this limitation. Use the online SOS system to quickly and easily farm this mission. Additionally, use a daily voucher to increase
your rare loot drops. You can earn double the materials if you are lucky.
Use the following steps to easily farm powerful end-game armor:

1. Join/start an online session.
2. Go to the "Quest Counter" and "Join a Quest".
3. Select "Respond to SOS" and set the target to Zorah Magdaros.
4. Search and make sure "Quest Type" is "No Preference".
5. Go to the "Optional" tab, and you should get "Left Quite the Impression". This is the optional quest that will randomly appear on your board. It is identical to the final battle against Zorah Magdaros.
6. During the quest, farm as many mining outcrops as possible to get Dragonite Ore and Zorah Carapace. The outcrops will repopulate after a few minutes.
7. When attacking the cores, check for monster materials that drop.
Also, watch the falling rocks, as they can also drop monster material.
8. To damage Zorah quicker, use the slinger and launch rocks at the trapped stalactites. They will explode and damage Zorah. When the large monster appears, damage Zorah enough to cause it to retreat so you do not have to waste time fighting it.
9. During the third phase, aim for the face to smash his rocky jaw region.
Once it cracks, you will get bonus rare materials. Remember that you can load a cannon with up to five shots; you do not need to reload after every shot.

Rainbow Pigment:
Successfully complete "The White Winds Of The New World" 9-quest to unlock the
Rainbow Pigment.

Ryu costume:
To unlock the Ryu costume in Monster Hunter: World, have a Street Fighter 5 save file. The Ryu costume is tied to the "Down The Dark, Muddy Path" arena challenge in the Gathering Hub and is only available if you have played Street Fighter 5. This challenge puts you against a giant Barroth and can be completed with another player. This quest rewards you with SF5 tickets. You need seven tickets to unlock the Ryu costume.

You get the following number of tickets depending on your completion time:
-Rank A (4 minutes): Three tickets
-Rank B (8 minutes): Two tickets
-Rank C (50 minutes): One ticket

After you have obtained seven SF5 tickets, go to Smithy's to unlock the Ryu costume. Additionally, you can still get the Ryu costume if you have not played Street Fighter 5 by joining into sessions that are focused on arena challenges. Go to a quest board and select "Search for an Online Session". Set the Quest preference to "Event Quests" to be paired with players that have the same goal.

Unlocking Rainbow Pigment:
The requirements to unlock this secret armour:

-Red ‘Complete’ ALL Optional Quests
-Complete ALL Assignments, including the Tempered Kirin HR 49 Quest
-Complete the limited quests for Zorah Magdaros and Xeno’jiva at least once.
-The Xeno quest ‘A Light upon the River’s Gloom’ is the only 9-optional quest
that is required.
Note: You can use a SOS flare and join for credit.

Easy Tier 3 sniping decorations:
This following melding exploit allows you to get the best sniping decorations every time you meld. The melding process at the elder melder is basically random. You give him decorations you do not want and you get a random decoration in return. Tier 3 decorations are the most valuable and rarest to receive -- so it can take a long time until you get the one you really want. To get any decoration you want from the melder, first save your game and back it up before you meld, and restart the game. This allows you to keep your current progress and you will not lose any items you are about to meld. Then, return to the elder melder and meld strange streams in the First Wyverian Ritual. Meld sets of three as many times as desired, and write down what you got out of each roll in slot 1-3. Once you melded a couple of times and found decorations you want, replace your saved game file with the backed up one and restart the game again. The rolls will have the exact same result as before -- so you now know what each slot will give you. If you found something you like in roll 2 for example, start a quest and complete it. This will skip one roll and you can
now meld the item you want.

Unlockable Poogie Costumes:
A Poogie can be found on the bottom floor (Tradeyard) in Astera. After each quest, visit the Poogie and successfully pet it when it gets an exclamation mark over it’s head (you only need to do this once per quest). After a certain amount of quests, the Poogie will get really ecstatic when you pet it and jump really high. This will now allow the Poogie to find new costumes and items for you. Note that may still need to do one more quest after getting the Poogie to be this way.

Pick up the Poogie and bring it to the designated locations (your controller will vibrate when at the correct location) and put it down for it to dig up an item. Then take the item it dug up to permanently unlock the costume. You need to do a quest each time to get another item.

How to Play Co-Op:
When you encounter a new monster/new area, the game wants to introduce you with a cutscreen. Because of this cutscreen, other players are not able to join you.

The best way to work with a friend or friends, is that you all enter quests at the same time, and then after each has seen the cutscene, you simply hit "return from quest" This will transport you back to town.

When both yourself and who you are trying to join, have seen this cutscene,
the quest will be joinable.

Timeline example:
Player 1 Enters Quest 0 mins
Player 2 Enters Quest 0 mins

Player 2 Finds boss and cutscene begins 2mins later
Player 1 Finds boss and cutscene beings 4mins later
Player 2 finishes cutscene, and leaves quest 5mins later

If player 1 is still watching the cutscene, player 2 cannot join their quest.
When player 1 gets the message "An SOS flare can be used" - Player 2 can then enter. OR Both parties can now leave and start a quest together.

Adjusting the MouseBaseSpeed Setting in Config.ini:
There’s a "config.ini" in the root folder of Monster Hunter World. There’s not many options here besides some handy binding settings for a controller and a certain setting that lets you adjust how the game emulates a joystick when you move your mouse. If you’re unsatisfied with adjusting the mouse sensitivity in-game, try adjusting this setting to your liking as well!

How to Get Your Egg Faster:

you taking long time to carrying the egg.

6.Bring Friends (Multiplayer):
Its easy for anyone of you volunteer to carry the egg while the others are
trying to get the mother attention especially for the Large Monsters.

Tempered Deviljho Minimal Setup:
I don't have much in terms of jewels and crafted gear sets. However, i wanted to take part in the deviljho event. The defence alone let me down, more or less everything I tried out from my crafted sellection made the battle eel borderline impossible to me, the battles where either too challening or risky to feel the need to repeat over and over.

After messing around with some gear, a bit of farming to feed new ideas that, at the time. Might or might not have gone too well, i then came up with a set that suprisingly works and with careful gameplay. And monitoring his move sets, the setup i provide today is what i consider minimal. (hard. but not borderline impossible.)

This setup works best solo, but has a pretty decent survival value even in a group. If utilized properly. (Not dying while others fall constantly, battle after battle is considered to me, decent survival.)

Anyway, try it out or if you are short on the materials, try to get close to what I have and see how you do, there are better setups out there but again. I don't have a lot and this may give others who don't have much either and feel under powered at thier current tage in game, to try and achieve something close to what i have or experiment with gear like I did to get something they are comfortable with. that works in thier favor and against old pickle.

Be gentle with the feedback I am only trying to help, if this is useless information. You have my deepest apologies. I have only died once win a group, with this setup, not sure if it is the gear itself or skill.

Solo battles with this takes me no more than 35 minutes, bit slow but this is all I have against him right now. I have dislexia so you may have to read twice on some parts but I have done my best to be clear and expand on areas of intrest.

The Setup:
Monster Hunter: World - Tempered Deviljho Minimal Setup

Adding 3 in Dragon Resistance, not only gives +20 resistance but also adds 10+ to defence. Adding 4 in Defence Boost, adds 20+ plus an additional 3+ in all Elementals. This should hit you up at around 400 Defence, if you have upgraded gear.

Devine Blessing procs quite a lot so i decided to make this a priority in my set, reducing damage by 50% when it does proc.

Recovery Up is on 3 and is there to conserve my mega potion supply, and buff the normal potion strength.

Health boost is on 3 this helps a lot, bringing your HP to 150. rounding your max in battle HP to 200 after popping a Max Potion.

Recovery Speed is on 3, decided to add this to the mix when i noticed how many times he hits you leaving a large chunk of red HP.

Palico can be used for tanking or buffing. I tried both and they are both good for this build. I prefer the buffs tbh.

pleae note that I did try a vaal recovery setup but too much negativity went into dragon and even though i solo'd him was the hardest battle i ever did.

Still needed the vaal mail though because i only have 1 recovery jewel and no slots left.

Infinite Ghillie Mantle:
Mainly used for collecting Investigations.

How to Do It...:

Put on the Ghillie Mantle like normal... Then just use the sit emote and afk wherever you want. (Namely not in the path of a large monster or where you will be distubed) the mantles time will not diminish giving the monster plenty of time to roam and leave collectables. Thats it!

Thats the extent of this guide and tutorial. You let the monster roam for 40+ minutes, in the last 10 or 5 even just run around and collect tracks, you can in fact fail the quest and keep all those investigations.

Nergigante has the most limited pathing of the elder dragons so his tracks will be the most condensed, also be warned, theres often a nergigante nearby.
