Master Rank Optional Quests in Monster Hunter World Iceborne (MHW). Master Rank Optional Quests are only available to players who own the Iceborne Expansion. These quests are not needed in order to progress the story and level up Master Rank, but they provide materials and unlock special tools, canteen foods and others.

Please see Event Quests for special optional weekly quests by Capcom. Please see Special Assignments for free Monster DLC quests.

  • Finding Master Rank monsters counts as it's own discovery
  • Capturing Master Rank monsters, gives more reward.  If the quest does not explicitly state "slay", then you should always try to capture a monster.
  • Talking to Villagers with a (!) in Seliana or the Research Station
  • Completing previous Optional quests
  • Fully researching monsters (all 4 tabs in the monster manual)
  • Your current progress level for Master Rank Assignments
  • All Purr-fect quests reward In-Room Decorations

"Special Arena:" Quests are unlocked by Capturing the monster first. Once completed, they appear randomly on your Quest Board.

(!) => Those are Villagers' Requests or special delivery bounties.

        Master Hunter of the new world doesn't need all Mantle and boosters upgraded. You only need the basic unlocks. I did the quest before I finished the tempered Blackveil Vaal optional to unlock the upgraded mantle.

          For the star 3 optional quests, is there another Arena quest, because I've done all of the ones in the list of optional 3 stars?

              I made it to master rank 200 and unlocked Master Hunter of the New World so i added it on the page from my phone. Please feel free to edit. The mission is a tempered teo, temperes luna, tempered velkana and a regular ruiner nergi After completing it, you get a pendant. Same for finishing all the optionals.

                Anyone else having problems with 5 and 6 star optionals bugging out? Specifically the teostra and kushala quests. Sometimes mine has them marked as complete, then they will be marked incomplete, then sometimes they disappear from the list entirely.

                      I think you are missing a blackveil Vaal Hazak in the rotten vale that unlocks immunity+, not sure how to unlock it as I was just maximizing research level for monsters and when I maxed blackveil Vaal Hazak was when it unlocked

                              I’ve done everything listed on the guide and in the comments but still can’t complete the 5 star quests, does it have something to do with maxing the research on Nemielle, velkhana, blackveil Vaal halak, or the seething bezelgeuse? Any help would be appreciated!

                                  It also seems that the Elder Dragons in the 5 Star Quests got atleast 2 different Quests. Teostra got a Quest in the Elder's Recess and in the Wildspire while Kushala Daora got one in the Elder's Recess and in the Ancient Forest. I'm not sure about the Blackveil Vaal Hazak, Namielle and Kirin but i still need a Quest after finishing the alternative Quests from Teostra and Daora.
