Quest Info
Objective: Slay 10 Girros
Reward Money: 5400z
Time Limit: 50 min.
Conditions: HR 11 or higher
Failure Conditions: Time Expires / Faint 3 Times
Other Monsters: Hornetaur / Raphinos

This quest is pretty simple. The Meowscular Chef must be taking it easy on you, that, or he's running out of ideas. In any event, Girros dwell in the middle layer of the Rotten Vale and can be found in AREAS 6 - 9, sometimes in the company of a Great Girros. They can most easily be attacked in AREA 9, arguably, as there are no Raphinos there seeking to bother you, and it's a pretty quick walk from the Central Camp.

Numbers in any individual area are limited, so you may have to end up wading deep into the toxin to find more prey... or you can just wait, as Girros packs are fairly mobile and their numbers replenish quickly. Just be wary of Odogaron, or worse, Bazelgeuse, who are the chief threats in this area. Don't be foolhardy, retreat when necessary, and if they're some nasty monster in AREA 6 or 9, travel to another camp and approach the central layer areas from another direction. No sense in risking getting carted when all you need to kill are Girros, right?

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.
