Hey hunters,

How’re the hunts treating you?

In this post we’ll be welcoming you into High Rank and providing some pointers to help you settle into the next stage of your adventure, including some advice on your first High Rank challenge, tracking down the elusive ??? Rathian!

We know a lot of you hunters know exactly what monster this is, but for the sake of avoiding a quest spoiler for our newer hunters, we’ll leave discovering exactly which monster this is to you!


Welcome to High Rank!
If you’re now at this point (or beyond), congratulations! You’ve steeled yourself as a hunter, overcome the challenges of Low Rank, brought Zorah Magdaros’ quest to its conclusion and likely crafted yourself some rather swish gear on the way!

High Rank brings with it a host of exciting new challenges as you encounter new monsters, new locales and the monsters you thought you knew from Low Rank will be even more dangerous, both hitting harder and ... Read more

Hey hunters,

How’s the hunting going?

Before we delve into this week’s post and delve into the two distinct, yet intertwined locales that are the Coral Highlands and Rotten Vale, we just wanted to say a big WELCOME to all the new (and returning) hunters who picked up Monster Hunter: World in the recent discount, it’s awesome to have you with us!

If you’re looking for some early-game pointers to help you settle in whilst you get your hunting groove on, you can check out some of our earlier posts like ... Read more

Hey hunters,

We hope your hunts have been met with much success!

Our focus for this week’s post is on one particular monster, a monster that when World originally launched was seen by the community as the first wall to be surmounted, a true test of what you’d learned so far as a new hunter. It’s time to hunt Anjanath, the Fierce Jaw Wyvern and one of the tougher monsters you’ll face in low rank hunts!



If you’ve been following along with our Return to World community streams, you might have seen even our more experienced hunters carting a few times against this fiery foe! Just remember, there’s no shame in carting, we’ve all done it and still do! We hope today’s advice helps in your future hunts.

Prevailing over Anjanath!
Anjanath is a fire breathing menace introduced for the first time to the series in Monster Hunter: Wo... Read more

Hey hunters,

Happy New Year! It’s been great seeing “Return to World” take flight and seeing both the fresh perspectives from new players, and the fond memories from everyone coming back or rolling a new hunter.

In our update this week, we’ll walk you through the second main location in Monster Hunter: World, as well as a few of the exciting monsters you’ll be facing down for the first time. We’ll also round up a few other updates from the world of Monster Hunter.

First up, our journey in Monster Hunter: World continues!


Hunting Locations – Wildspire Waste


The Wildspire Waste is the second locale in Monster Hunter: World’s early quests. As the name implies, the wastes are a combination of parched desert land and swamplands due to water flowing from the nearby Ancient Forest.

Hunters will start at the sout... Read more

Hey hunters,

In lieu of our game walkthroughs, this week’s installment of the Return to World community blogs features some of our top tips and tricks essential to a successful hunt in Monster Hunter: World. These core tips will prove useful even as you venture beyond the early game and start taking on tougher challenges.


The More You Know!
Dung Pods

Let’s talk dung. After a monster has done its business, it’ll leave dung in certain areas on the map. Now you may be wondering, why would I ever want to pick that up? Dung allows you to create dung pods, which are essential for getting monsters away from you. This is perfect when you’re hunting one monster and end up getting interrupted by another that you’re not interested in hunting. Keep yourself from being in the middle of a Turf War and deploy a well-placed Dung Pod to stay focused on your prey!

Aside from observing the monster’s behavior, yo... Read more

Before we get into that though, just a quick reminder that Steam’s The Game Awards sale ends on December 21st, meaning you only have a couple of days from the time of this post to get World at its lowest ever price on Steam!
