Investigate The Anomaly at the Research Base is a Special Assignment Quest in Monster Hunter World (MHW). Optional quests are repeatable and unlocked after completing specific points in the main story via Assignments.

 

Something has happened at the Research Base. Head there at your earliest convenience. This is a special assignment unrelated to the Research Commission's main mission of solving the Elder Crossing. Speak to the Third Fleet member with a blue! above her head to advance the special assignment.

Investigate The Anomaly at the Research Base Information

 

Monster Hunter World Update 6.0 must be installed for this quest to show up. Load into Astera and talk to the group of Felynes that are just to the right of the entrance in the tradeyard. They will tell you that they encountered a never before seen tailrider during their latest safari, and that the Third Fleet's Lynian Expert wishes to talk to you.

Accept and travel to the Research Base to begin the questline. When you talk to the Lynian Expert, you are made aware of a strange creature (A Nekker) that has appeared and seems out of this world. The Commander is summoned to oversee the situation.

Turns out, the creature was first spotted in the Ancient Forest, and as the team discusses it Geralt of Rivia appears from a sudden portal. Geralt points the creature out as a Nekker, which leads to Geralt offering his services to hunt where this new monster might have come from. An unusually large number of Revoltures have been spotted in the Ancient Forest, and Geralt sets forth with the assistance of the Research Commission.

A new screen appears: Do you want to help Geral of Rivia?

  • You get to play as Geralt of Rivia
  • Equipment for this quest is predetermined
  • You can only keep quest reward items
  • Meal effects are lost upon departing
  • This will not count towards the guild card's weapon usage statistics

Selecting yes will transform you into The Witcher and begin Contract: Trouble in the Ancient Forest.
