Tips

Expert Hunters must learn how to survive the extreme cold and extreme heat as they travel atop Mt. Snowpeak’s Summit and the Drysand Desert in search of formidable prey.

For the Cave of Bones, head north from the Drysand Desert. The Deep Elderwood, meanwhile, can be reached by heading north from the Elderwood. However the way in is blocked off until Part 5: Great Forest, Great Spirit.

The Al Maajik Outskirts is the first area from the Desertward Ravine.

Finally, Cacto Cove unlocks after Part 4: Al Maajikan Nights. After recruiting Magnificus, head for the south bank of the Al Maajikan Outskirts and there’s a ferryman who will take you to Cacto Cove.

If you followed our recommendation earlier, you should have defeated all of the extra monsters atop the summit, but if you haven’t then it’s not too late–and possibly still early!

To reach the Silverwings , you will have to sneak past the Silverfang, a dangerous ice-breathing dino. If you’re feeling brave, you can try and fight it; otherwise, you can sneak past if the road ahead isn’t blockaded.

Sand Runners can be found to the west of the entrance to the Ancient Ruins, towards the north-east of Drysand Desert.

Like the Road Runners, these ground-based fowl are often mingling with a far dangerous foe–the Thunderbird this time. Aim your arrows properly so you don’t enrage the giant bird; that’s a battle for another day!

The hardest Expert Challenge involves a battle with the Blizzard Bird , who’s usually chillin’ near the north-west highlands or the north-east highlands, before Phineas’s hot air balloon. Like Bigbeak, it only appears during the day.

If you defeated Bigbeak, the Blizzard Bird isn’t much harder. It has the same attack patterns, so listen out for its shrill, before stepping sideways and launching a couple of arrows. Just beware that Blizzard Bird’s ice shot has a larger range than Bigbeak’s gust of wind.
