Monster Hunter: World is gearing up to introduce its next elder dragon and with it a new limited-time event.
On April 18th at 5 p.m. PT, Kulve Taroth will make its way to Monster Hunter: World, and up to 16 players will be able to team up to take it down.
This new, limited-time quest type is called Siege. To initiate a Siege quest against Kulve Taroth, hunters will meet up in the Gathering Hub, which houses up to 16 players. Those players will then split up into four teams of four and will all work together to investigate and hunt Kulve Taroth.
The new elder dragon is unique in more ways that one. First of all, it doesn’t sound like you’ll actually slay the Kulve Taroth. Instead, the main objective of Siege quests is to repel Kulve Taroth.
So how do you earn gear? Well, that’s where it gets super interesting.
Kulve Taroth’s mantle completely covered in gold. That means that the gear you can make from Kulve Taroth parts are some of the shiniest you can earn, for both your hunter and your Palico. In order to gather the materials for that gear, you’ll have to work with your 15 teammates in order to break monster parts and chop off the “shiny weapon relics it has gathered along its journey through the New World.” Yep, Kulve Taroth’s mantle is actually made of weapon relics.
A full complement of 16 players isn’t required to initiate a Siege quest, but it’s highly recommended. According to Capcom, playing with 15 others will “be really helpful in breaking all the monster parts and getting the best rewards.”
Capcom hasn’t released a full schedule for the Siege event, but its length will be similar to those of other Event Quests or the Spring Blossom Event, which will have lasted for almost two weeks when it concludes on April 18th.
Monster Hunter: World is available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A PC version arrives later this year.
