Monster Hunter World

Elderslayer

By
Nathan Garvin

You’ll be introduced to the vast majority of the game’s Elder Dragons during and after the assingment A Wound and a Thirst (although Low Rank Kirin can be hunted earlier), after which the main story assignments will take you through several investigations that culminate in hunts for other Elder Dragons. Of the non-story monsters you can regularly fight, the following are Elder Dragons: Kirin, Kushala Daora, Nergigante, Teostra and Vaal Hazak, and you’ll need to fight each of them numerous times to gain materials necessary to craft late-game gear. Kill any fifty Elder Dragons to get this trophy/achievement.

Tempered Elder Dragons are also the best source of the rarest drops in the game - Warrior’s Streamstones and Hero’s Streamstones. That being the case you’ll ideally earn a lot of these kills as you hunt Tempered Elder Dragons, which is a hobby you can indulge in after the assignment Thunderous Rumble in the Highlands.

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.
