Uragaan General Information

You’ll be able to hunt Uragaan after (well, technically during) the mandatory expedition to the Elder’s Recess. After returning to Astera, you should unlock the quest Ore-Eating Occupier, and at the same time you should be able to talk to the Armory clerk to pick up the quest A Fiery Convergence. The former features the Uragaan as the sole target, while the latter includes a Lavasioth. After defeating an Uragaan, you should also unlock the quest Special Arena: HR Uragaan.

Quests Ore-Eating Occupier (7*), A Fiery Convergence (7*), Special Arena: HR Uragaan (7*)
Variants High Rank / Tempered (Threat Level 2)

Uragaan Strengths and Weaknesses

Being covered in armor, it shouldn’t be surprising that its hard to land meaningful hits on Uragaan, with only its belly and the top of its head being terribly vulnerable, with the latter being the prime target. The head and back are both breakable, and the tail is severable.

Uragaan is weak to Water, and somewhat vulnerable to both Ice and Dragon, while being resistant to Fire.

As for ailments, Uragaan - like most critters native to the Elder’s Recess - is susceptible to Poison, but is also weak against Stun. It is resistant to Sleep and Blast.

Like Radobaan, Uragaan likes to roll about the level, and primarly deals physical damage. Unlike Radobaan, however, Uragaan tends to fling bombs about during its attacks. While there’s not much you can do to protect yourself from these attacks, you can prevent yourself from being set on fire with a high enough Fire Resistance score (20+), which will eliminate a complication. Bringing along a means to inflict Poison on Uragaan may also prove helpful.

Uragaan Attacks

Following in the tradition of so many large monsters in the Elder’s Recess, the Uragaan has many attacks similar to another monster it resembles, complicated by the addition of explosions. In this case, the Uragaan is fond of discharging explosive balls which, unlike the Bazelgeuse it’ll rarely intentionally cause them to detonate. Instead, these explosive spheres act as mines, serving as hindrances to mobility and secondary attacks which can nevertheless prove quite annoying.

You’ll recognize many of the Uragaan’s attacks from your battles with the Radobaan, including the side rush, the tremor-inducing head slam, a multi-strike series of head slams and the sleep gas it can excrete from its underside. It can also perform a tail sweep, but unlike the Radobaan’s attack, the Uragaan also expels explosive spheres to accompany the sweep. The Uragaan can also roll around like a massive pillbug, although its rolls are usually shorter than the Radobaan’s, usually announcing an impending roll by shaking loose some bombs before rolling, which will likely detonate some of the bombs shook loose. It tends to end rolls with a head smash, so while the Uragaan’s roll is shorter than the Radobaan’s, it makes up for it by adding numerous other forms of attack to accompany it. Even the Uragaan’s sleep gas isn’t to be trusted, as it can also cause the gas it excretes to explode!

You may have noticed the weasel-word “usually” when describing the tendency of the Uragaan to have shorter rolls than the Radobaan, and it’s there for a reason. While most of its rolls are relatively short, one-direction affairs, when enraged the Uragaan will opt for a longer, sustained spin attack, sometimes changing direction several times. Use traps or Flash Pods to interrupt its attack, or otherwise prepare for dodge or block its onslaught for as long as it persists.

The Uragaan’s rarest drop is an Uragaan Ruby, which is a very rare carve. You can also get another shot at it by carving the tail or breaking the head. The Uragaan Jaw is also fairly rare, as you can only get it reliably as a reward for breaking the head.

This guide features a full, beginning-to-end walkthrough written in an “ideal chronological order of events” format. Main quests are interspersed with side quests in the order in which they unlock, although some side quests and arena challenges may only be referenced instead of fully explained. These are typically quests that have you facing a monster you’ve already fought under similar circumstances that offer no unique reward for completion. For example, after completing most main quests you won’t be able to attempt that quest again, but you’ll usually unlock an identical side quest allowing you to hunt the same monster in the same area with the same success/failure conditions.

Monster strategies will be discussed in detail as you encounter them throughout the walkthrough, featuring elemental and status information and drop lists. The guide also features a fully detailed bestiary for those who just want information about specific monsters unaccompanied by a walkthrough. Trophy/achievement information can also be found in a separate trophy/achievement guide, although be warned: many trophies/achievements in Monster Hunter World are easier said than done.

Other features of this guide include:

  • Information on crafting/harvesting.
  • Side quests that unlock mantles, ingredients and other useful features.
  • Field Researcher quests including where to catch rare fish, how to capture small monsters, and where to locate Grimalkynes/Gajalaka.
  • Grimalkyne/Gajalaka quests.
  • How to upgrade the Ancient Tree/Harvest Box and how to unlock various fertilizers.
  • How the Elder Melder works, melding different items and decorations.
  • Where to find the Powertalon and Armortalon, and how to upgrade them into the Powercharm and Armorcharm.
  • Detailed information on how to unlock Tempered Monsters, the difference between Threat Level 1, 2 and 3 Tempered Monsters.
  • Information on Feystones, including drop rates, the differences between the types (Mysterious, Gleaming, Worn and Warped).
  • How to get Warrior’s Streamstones and Hero’s Streamstones.
