Oof. This is going to be a chore. The Diablos and Black Diablos aren't the nicest of foes under normal circumstances, but depending on how much hunting you've done, you have have had to deal with both at the same time before. They tend to occupy the same areas, after all, which isn't to say they're friends. Far from it, if they encounter each other they'll probably fight, reducing the work ahead of you. Tough love being a Diablos.

That's not to say that you should try to engage them both, as one can roar while the other charges, and it doesn't take too many hits from either before you find yourself carted back to the nearest camp. That being the case, try to lure one away from the other, or use Dung Pods to deter the one you'd rather not deal with first. Aside from the possibility of having to fight both monsters at the same time, there's not too much to this quest. Don't engage both of them and it's really more akin to a prolonged battle with a Diablos. Capturing them will shorten the fight considerably, which is always a good idea, but especially since you don't want to end up fighting both of them in and near their lair. Other than that, the only thing you need to worry about is an interfering Bazelgeuse who will show up after the first target dies. Dung Pods will again prove invaluable for deterring this nasty opportunist.

When you've emerged victorious from this ordeal you'll be rewarded with the Astera Beer ingredient. If that's not enough of a reward, however, return to the Research Base and talk to the Third Fleet Master, where she'll reward you with the hunter tool she told you about earlier - the Affinity Booster. This item will, when deployed, produce a red mist that'll increase the affinity of any hunter who enters it for 60 seconds, making it a fairly decent attack boost for your party.

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.
