Quest Info

This quest tasks you with hunting down a Black Diablos, which is a somewhat stronger variant of the Diablos. Despite that, the moveset is the same, and the Black Diablos inhabits in the same environs and exhibits the same behaviors, so there’s not much to say about this monster that didn’t already apply to the normal Diablos. Both lair in AREAS 13 and 14, but will venture up to AREA 8 and AREA 6 if provoked. Both are accomplished borrowers and love to charge… the only difference in their attacks is how much you’ll be punished if you let them hit you.

Hunt - Black Diablos

Like the normal Diablos, the Black Diablos’ resistance to damage depends on damage type and body part struck, with the head, wings and belly being weakest to damage, albeit not equally so. The Black Diablos’ head is weakest to blunt, the belly is weak to cut and blunt and the wings are weak to ammo damage. The elemental resistances are largely the same, but with one glaring difference - the Black Diablos isn’t the least bit concerned by Dragon damage. Its tail is severable, and its horns can be broken off, giving you a shot at a Diablos Tailcase and a Black Spiral Horn+, respectively. It, too, is weak to Paralysis.

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.
