This quest pits you against a Rathalos and an Azure Rathalos, who haunt the normal areas in the Ancient Forest that the Rathian and Rathalos typically occupy. If you’ve been keeping your gear upgraded to the point where a high rank Rathalos isn’t too much trouble (and ideally you have armor with Fire Resistance and Poison Resistance skills), then this battle shouldn’t really be any more trouble than the Rathalos and Rathian in the quest Redefining the Power Couple was, and for many of the same reasons.

Again you’ll find yourself presented with conflicting approaches to the battle, since the Rathalos and Azure Rathalos are likely to meet up at some point. You can fight them both at the same time, attempting to dodge between them so they hit each other (while cautiously attacking as opportunity allows, of course) or focus on them one at a time, driving the unwanted wyvern away with Dung Pods if they interfere. Either way, Flash Pods will be especially useful in this fight, as both are avid fliers, and a single, well-placed Flash Pod can send both wyverns crashing to the ground.

As always, search for tracks ahead of time to boost your Scoutfly Level, and when one is near death, use traps to capture the moribund monster to save yourself some trouble. Return to camp when you need to restock, heal, or eat another meal, and be sure to buff yourself with Demondrugs and Armor Skins. Going out of your way to recruit a Grimalkyne can’t hurt, either. Once one of the two Rathalos are defeated, dispatching the second one should be a comparatively trivial matter.

Defeat the two Rathalos, then return to Astera and talk to the Armory clerk to obtain your reward - the Challenger Mantle.

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.
