Levels 6 through 10 star missions:
Successfully complete all offline missions then go
in the house behind the chief and talk to the woman inside.
Hint: Easy money:
Once you get the money to buy a BBQ Spit, buy it, then go to the
Quest Level 1 missions and do Mission 1. Get ten pieces of Raw
Meat. Cook eight pieces of Well Done Meat, then take the other
two pieces to the Deliver Box. As soon as you complete the mission
and return to your village, go to the woman at the fruit stands.
You can sell her Well Done Steak for $48 each.
Go on the fishing level 1 mission. Get ten worms out of the supply
box and fish in the fishing hole near the base camp. When you
run out of bait, get the rest of the worms and go to the fishing
hole in Zone 11. Use the rest of the bait there. You can sometimes
get more than $1,000.
On any quest you can get Special Mushrooms. Collect as many as
you can and you will get bonus money at the end of the quest for
them. They can be found by searching where Mosswine sniff.
An easy way to get money is to buy 10 Felvine from the merchandise
seller in the village then go out on a hunt where "Zone 7"
is available. Speak to the old man in Zone 7. He will say "What
a nice prize you have there". Choose "Yes" and
he will take a unit of Felvine and give you a Special Mushroom
in return. Sometimes you can get rid of all your units of Felvine,
while other times he only takes a few units of it. Special Mushrooms
can sell for 60Z each at the end of each mission. All this must
be done in the "Forest and Hills" sector.
This trick requires a good weapon, such as the Redwing, and moderate
armor with good fire resistance. Kill the Yian Kut-Ku about five
to seven times. You should accumulate about 12,000Z quickly.
Get the Poison Battle Axe. To do this, go from an Iron Sword to
Hunters Dagger to Poison Axe then to Poison Battle Axe. Do a mission
where you must kill a Yian Kut-Ku. There is a possibility where
you can kill it in less than five minutes. For more money, do
a mission where you must capture the Yian Kut-Ku. You can probably
capture it faster than you can kill it.
Hint: Item duplication:
This trick requires two players. First, have player
one take an item such as an Immunizer, Mega Juice, Mega Nutriment,
Max Potion, Sm Bone Husk, etc., (all Rare 3 and under). Player
two must have an empty inventory. Start a quest that is very easy
to finish, such as "It's Party Time". When the quest
begins, have player one give all the items to player two. When
player one has no more items, have him abandon the quest. Player
two should finish the quest. By abandoning the quest, player one
will keep their items, and by finishing the quest, player two
still have the items received. Do this a few times and you will
be able to get easy money by selling the items.
Hint: Recover health on a mission:
If you are out of potions and low on health while on a mission,
just find the hut that you start at and press X by the
bed. Your character will sleep and recover health.
Hint: Prepare for monster
Try to be prepared to lure a monster to its death. Set traps in
multiple places around your village. When a monster is spotted,
lure it towards traps. As the monster goes past, have a teammate
shoot the traps. They will blow up, injuring or killing the monsters.
Hint: Cephalos or Cephadrome hunting:
When hunting Cephalos or Cephadrome, make sure to have Sonic Bombs.
Time your throw correctly, so that the bomb explodes on top of
the monster. Since they are in the sand, they will be thrown out
and momentarily stunned, giving you time to hit it. Also, Small
Barrel-Bombs work as well, but they must explode just when the
monster is under them. Another thing that works is hitting them
with a great sword.
Hint: Rathalos hunting:
Rathalos usually charges more than the Rathian. When
it flies, watch out for fireballs or it flying down to poison
you with its claws. When it turns fast it is usually going to
charge. When it turns slowly, it probably means that it is going
to spit a fireball.
Hint: Rathian hunting:
Rathian usually charges a lot. It does not spit fireballs
as much as the Rathalos. When it turns fast, it usually charges.
When it turns slowly, it usually spits a fireball. Watch out for
the triple fireball attack. It usually spits in random directions,
mainly middle, right, and left. It will swing its tail under it
when flies shortly off the ground. This will poison you for a
moderate amount of time.
Hint: Getting a Sand Shark out of the ground:
If you have a Dung Bomb you can use it to get a Sand
Shark out of the ground. Throw it like a Sonic Bomb and make sure
that it goes over the Sand Shark.
Hint: Stealing a Rathalos egg:
Use the following trick to complete Level 2: Steal
Rathalos Egg easily. If you find the Rathalos nest (Area 5), kill
the Velociprey there and grab an egg. Run back outside with the
egg. Do not jump off the front of the platform you are on, as
it will break the egg from the drop. Go left and you will land
on a platform further down, which is safe to jump to the floor
from. You will be in a place where the Rathalos appears frequently.
Get out into Area 3 as fast as possible. Do not let your stamina
bar go down all the way, as you will have a rest and drop the
egg. While in Area 3, stop. If you go right across Area 2 the
Velociprey will attack and you will drop the egg. That is the
shortest way, but if you go left into the forest, there are only
cats which will only fight back, and not attack, and pigs which
act almost the same way. After going through all the forest regions,
you will reach Area 1, which only contains herbivores. Then, go
back to base. When you go up to the items box, press X
to put the egg in. The mission is now complete with no danger
of dropping the egg.
Hint: Getting good weapons:
Get two small monster bones from the monsters. This can be done
in the first level, but if you want to get the sword immediately
after the level do not spend $50 before the first level. Then,
go to the weapon crafter and have him create the bone sword. It
is slow but is incredibly strong.
Buy an Iron Hammer Upgrade it to Iron Hammer +3. Get eight Medium
Monster Bones, nine Small Monster Bones, one Large Monster Bone,
and one Monster Fluid 4. Upgrade to Bone Axe. 5. Upgrade it to
Bone Axe +6. Upgrade it to Bone Broadaxe. This weapon has an attack
of 831. Note: All of these weapons together cost $23,310.
Hint: Worms for fishing:
Go to section 11 in the first and second star question.
Go to the white round flat rock and press X. You will keep
getting worms for awhile.
Hint: Defeating the Yian Kut Ku:
If you are an Archer, lure the Kut Ku into area 7.
Kill the Velociprey and climb onto the ledge. It cannot hit you,
but you can kill it easily. This works best with Crag shots. If
it runs away just lure it back in.
Note: This trick is for Gunners only. To defeat the Kut Ku, take
99 normal level 2 bullets go to Zone 7. Kill all the Volociprey
and wait for the Kut-Ku if it isnt already there. When it appears,
paintball it. Look around to find a ledge. Go to it and climb
up. Go so that you are facing with your back turned to the wall.
The Kut Ku should follow but will not able to get to you if you
remain there. Keep shooting it in the head and eventually it should
tuauty tdls lefue.
If you are a Blademaster and wish to defeat the Kut Ku, use the
following trick. First, set a Pitfall trap anywhere you feel the
Kut Ku will fall in. Then put a few large barrel-bombs around
it. When the Kut Ku falls in it, run up and put a small barrel-bomb
beside a large bomb. This should create a chain reaction and hit
the other large barrel bomb. It may not look as if you really
hurt it, but it did do damage. For the rest, just keep avoiding
all its attacks and run in every time it "howls" and
start beating on it. Very useful items to have include five Flash
Bombs, five Sonic Bombs, two or three large barrel bombs, one
or two small barrel bombs, one Pitfall trap, and ten Potions (or
any type of healing device).
Hint: Dino swords:
Start off with the Hunter's Knife. Upgrade it to Hunter's
Knife Plus. Then instead of upgrading to Hunter's Dagger, upgrade
Serpent's Bite. You will then get a chance to upgrade to Velociprey,
Genprey or Loprey weapons later in the game. You will need lots
of scales, claws, or fangs to get these weapons. However they
are very strong. Additionally, the Genprey sword has a stun effect
and the Loprey sword gives a poisoning effect.
Hint: Kut Ku Scales:
In the very first level (quest level 1 and 2), in the
second area go to the entrance. You will see some small rocks.
There are Kut Ku Scales here.
Kut Ku Scales can be found in area one during level one and two
star missions. Go down the hill. Near the edge of the water in
one of the corners are some piles of dung. Search them. Every
other time you will get a Kut Ku Scale, which can be sold for
a high price.
Kut Ku Scales can also be found in Zone 5, in the Wyvern nest.
Around the entrance coming from zone 6, there is a pile of dung.
Search it and you can find Kut Ku Scales. Another location in
Zone 5 is in the middle of the zone. There are Kut Ku Scales there,
and also Unknown Skulls, which sell for about 200Z.
You can find Kut Ku Scales in Areas 1, 9, 5. There are two in
Area 1. You can find them by the water in the dung. When you first
enter Area 2, there will be rocks by the cliff. Search the first
rock. You will either get a Paintberry or a Kut Ku Scale. In Area
5, search in the dung and on the ground almost anywhere. Go in
the biggest clearing in Area 9 and search in the bushes to get
either a Kut Ku Scale, a Special Mushroom, or both.
Hint: Vespoid parts:
Vespoids are the little bugs that are annoying to kill.
Most of the time they will explode when they die, leaving no pieces
to carve. To get easy Vespoid and Hornetaur (beetle) pieces, get
a Hunter's Knife and upgrade it to a Hydra Bite so that it adds
poison. With that weapon, when you hit the Vespoids you will poison
them and they will most likely drop to the ground, leaving behind
a carcass to carve from.
Hint: Light Crystal:
The only way to get a Light Crystal is to carve it
off the body of the Gypceros. This can only happen in the mission
"Slay The Gypceros", which is a level 4 mission. You
may not get the Light Crystal the first time you defeat it. Keep
trying if you own A Vile Serpent Blade as it is the key part of
upgrading it to a Great Serpent Blade.
Hint: Poison Axe or Poison Battleaxe:
The Poison Axe is a good weapon for any battle. It
can be used to kill the Rathalos, Rathian, Yian Kut-Ku, Gypceros,
Cephadrome, Velocidrome, Gendrome, Iodrome, and Basarios. Go from
the Iron Sword Upgrade to the choice of the Either Serpent Bite
or Hunters Dagger. Choose the Hunters Dagger and keep upgrading
until you reach the choice of Twin Dagger or Poison Axe. You will
need Poison Sacs and Ioprey Stuff to make it.
Hint: Special Mushrooms:
Select a mission where you can go to Area 7. Get behind
the big tree and search. Almost every time you will get a Special
Mushroom. Note: You can also buy Felvine and trade it with the
old man in Area 7.
Hint: Faster dizzy recovery:
Use this trick when getting flashed by the Gypceros.
If you get flashed, rotate the Left Analog-stick very fast.
You should see the stars begin disappearing a lot faster.
Hint: Wyvern hunting:
When hunting a new type of Wyvern the first time (for
example, Rathalos or Monoblos), do not go out there with the intention
to kill it. Always use the first time to learn its movement habits,
attacks, and possible weakness or vulnerabilities that you can
use to your advantage. After you learn how it thinks you will
be ready to hunt it. Always take Flash Bombs and as many potions
as possible to be prepared.
When fighting a Wyvern in an area with other monsters in it, just
dodge Wyvern and try to trick it into hitting other monsters.
When you get the chance, hit the other monsters. When the other
monsters are dead, start to fight the Wyvern. Quick weapons are
better for other monsters. Doing the Wyvern missions are useful
for stocking up on money.
Hint: Monster attacks and weaknesses:
The basic attack for all Wyverns is the head first
charge. It always best to avoid them when possible. If you have
no time to move, then block. When they trip over at the end of
the charge, they are open to a good slash.
Fire ball barrage from the air: Flies straight up, then starts
firing in your general direction.
Poison Claw: Flies up, then comes down at you claws first and
slashes three times. Always block this, as it cannot be dodged.
Weakness: Flash Bombs
Triple Fire Balls: On the ground, fires three fire balls one
after another in random directions.
Poison Tail: Poises itself for takeoff but instead kind of jumps
and does a flip then bashes you with its tail. This happens very
fast. You must see it early or you will get smashed.
Weakness: When doing the Triple Fire Balls, it leaves itself open.
If you are already close, you can hack away at its chest area.
This Wyvern does not charge as much as the Ratholos. It makes
slashing at it mildly safer. It is also vulnerable to Flash Bombs.
Plyseioth (Water Wyvern)
Hydro Stream: Fires a high jet of water which does a great
deal of damage. It stays in water most of the time. Plenty of
frogs are needed to catch it when it disappears off map. and max
out your Sonic Bombs.
Side Swipe: Massive hip thrust throws you very far and does lots
Weakness: During and after it fires the Hydro Stream, it is open
for a good slash. Take this opportunity, as it is on of the few
you get. Also, when you fish it out of the the water it lays on
the ground twitching for awhile. This is the perfect chance to
have a go at it. It is very large, so you can stand underneath
it and slash at its legs. This is dangerous, because when it figures
out what you are doing it smashes you. This Wyvern is not affected
by Flash Bombs.
Hard Skin: Makes it difficult to get a clean shot. The sword
will just bounce off.
Charge: When it charges it does not trip over; it skids to a stop.
Giant Tail Sweeps: Sweeps its tail up to where its head is.
Poison Fart: Sends out a giant poison gas cloud that surrounds
its close area.
Weakness: Very slow charge is relatively easy to avoid. Bombs
seem to do more damage to it than other Wyverns.
This Wyvern uses the most annoying attacks from the other
Wyverns, which are Non-Trip Charge, Hip Thrust, and Full Body
Tail Swing. Its own moves are:
Flick Horn: Uses its one giant horn to flick you high into the
Under Ground Charge: Burrows under the ground, then bursts out
beneath you, doing lots of damage and throwing you far away from
Super Charge: After hides, it super charges and gets way faster.
You will know it is Super Charged when three big red dots appear
on its head.
Weakness: It is tall enough to stand under and hack away at its
weak legs. The rest of the body is armored like the Barrios. Its
charge and horn toss are easily blocked. leaving it open for a
good hack. It is vulnerable to Flash Bombs. When near a ledge
area, get it to charge at you when near the ledge. Its horn will
become jammed and leave it open for attack.

etc. can still see you. As a "ghost" you can read the
other player(s) conversations. They can not see what you type
while in this state. You cannot take any supply items nor kill
any Wyverns. You can still kill all of the lesser beasts (non-Wyverns).

before all other players, you will become invincible. You cannot
leave the quest even if you finish before all other players. All
non-ghost players must finish the quest before you can leave.
