(1 of 2) Locate the nest of some Apceros, which contains the eggs youre after

Locate the nest of some Apceros, which contains the eggs youre after (left), Be wary, however, as the normally docile Apceros will attack when their eggs are pilfered (right)

The purpose of this quest is to introduce a staple of Monster Hunter games; transporting heavy objects very - usually eggs. Essentially a form of escort quest, you’ll need to locate the object you’re after, find it, then carry is back to a camp and put it in your Item Box. Sounds simple enough, and you can even climb while carrying such objects! The catch? You move very, very slow while carrying objects, and while you can sprint, if you run out of stamina you’ll drop your prize. You’ll also drop whatever you’re carrying if you get hit, and if you drop it, you’ll have to go back and get another. Naturally, carrying around stolen eggs can draw unwanted attention, namely that of the egg’s parent, or the attention of other would-be egg-thieves like opportunistic Kulu-Ya-Kus.

(1 of 2) You can eliminate the nuisance the Apceros pose by killing them

You can eliminate the nuisance the Apceros pose by killing them (left), However you manage it, deliver the stolen herbivore eggs to the Supply Box (right)

This particular form of this quest type, being introductory, isn’t all that hard. You’ll need to nab an Herbivore Egg out of an Apceros nest (found in the southern end of AREA 4), and while usually docile, Apceros will attack if you abscond with one of their eggs. Granted, they move so slow you can usually just outpace them by walking and sprinting, as your stamina allows. If you want an even easier time of things, just kill all the Apceros in between the Southwest Camp and the Apceros nest, being wary of wandering groups of Apceros you may run across later and, of course, the Kulu-Ya-Ku that dwells in AREA 6.

Bring two Herbivore Eggs back to your Item Box and deposit them to complete this quest.

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 the Elder Melder works, melding different items and decorations.

  • 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.
