How to get Plunderblade
This Palico Gadget is obtained by completing Grimalkyne tribes sidequest in the Rotten Vale.
For this quest, you need to make sure you have a piece of raw meat. Once you have one (which you can get from carving monsters such as the Aptonoth), travel to the central camp, head to area 13, and talk to the Lynian Researcher. You must then wait for an Odogaron to drag a Legiana carcass into the area. (Placing a piece of raw meat will not do anything yet.) Once the Odogaron has dragged the carcass into the area, wait for it to leave and a Grimalkyne will come out. Scare it off and you are then prompted to chase it. Follow the scoutflies into the small cave area. Now, once the Grimalkyne runs away and hides, place a piece of raw meat in the open and hide. Once your palico says it's time to come out, just run up to them and you will receive a cutscene as normal.
Levels and Abilities
- Plunderblade: The Palico will hit the monster and get a piece of material that will be acquired upon return from the mission or expedition. The Palico will notify you of a successful retrieval. Higher proficiency gives a quicker cool down and a bigger pool of materials the Palico can acquire.
- Palarang: The Palico will throw out the Plunderblade like a boomerang, hitting the monster and making it drop a material, just when a material drops off during a battle. The Palico will notify you when a material is dropped. The material must be picked up by the player to be acquired. As before, higher proficiency equates to more frequent usage and a wider loot pool.
- Mount and Plunder: The Palico will leap onto the monster and stay there for a short period of time and make materials drop. These materials will be golden compared to the normal white, and will exclusively been trade-in items to be sold for zenny. Higher proficiency means more drops per use of Mount and Plunder, beginning at two or three and finishing at four items at level 15.
