        Is this stupid thing immune to dung pods? I tried several and it wouldn’t leave it’s a pain trying to solo both silver and gold at the same time.

          Btw, there are tools that let you see the health of a monster. 99% of large monsters that are not elder dragons can be captured under 20% HP. Silver Rath under 5% last I checked.

            Fests play such a major role in progressing in the game. You will only understand that if you start a new character right now. An event WASTELAND without any economic way to get decorations. And without decorations...well you better play Horizon Zero Dawn. It's like walking through a swamp compared to the joy the winter and appreation fest were. If that was your entry point after a year this big nothingness feels like a death field of boringness.

              Important note. This and gold rathian can spawn in the volcanic region, however they can NOT spawn as tempered in the volcanic area. If you want the pendants or the tempered materials, you have to level up their original regions

                I'm not sure if it was a fluke or what but as soon as I got my Volcanic region to level six my first one of these showed up in it so apparently it can spawn there too....for anyone who'd rather level that than coral.

                  If you want him to spawn more often just jump between maps until he pops up in the guiding lands. Easiest way

                    Capturing this thing is a gigantic pain - it doesn't have any kind of limping animation as it never leaves the area it starts in for any reason. Typically, if you get a head break it's pretty close to dying. At that point you basically have to spam traps.

                      How rare is it to get the special arena quest for this guy so far I captured it 4 times and have only gotten that quest once.

                        This dude moves almost as fast as Lunastra and his hellfire hits as hard as B52's napalm. I'm using augmented MR Luna + hard fire res jewel + veggie + health boost 3 and the hellfire still leaves a sizable dent in the HP.

                          Encountered Tempered Silver Rathalos at Coral Region Level 7. Wanted to add I don't think they can be captured. They had skulls showing on my map noting they were close to dying but a trap + bomb was ineffective. Gave me 4 Decos and one being a rarity 11 so I'm sure that's always guaranteed per kill.

                            For people who want easier find with this monster. First you gotta fight it or sight it so it is "unlocked" in your monster list, and you need to pass the 69 cap so you can join others GL if they do have a spawn however it's pretty rare though still. What I did without knowing while trying to max research level on mosnters in elder recess map is that you get investigations of silver rathalos pretty easily. You do have to fight similar threat level monsters like dodogama, lavasioth, azure rathalos and etc. Collect the tracks or just simply break parts and kill the monsters that will give you investigations (random ofc). I don't think fighting elder dragons will give you silver rathalos as they probably would give your teostra, lunastra investigations and such. I've got 3 investigations of silver rathalos now that's like.. 15 hunts on this guy so good luck folks!

                              Hope this doesn't happen to you, but I can't seem to get this guy to show up. Ran lvl 6 Coral with a group for like... 3 hours, fighting off monsters as we went. 9-10 kills, and it still didn't show.

                                  Does anyone know how many decoration slots the beta armor has? I assume each piece has the 4 slot every beta piece has, but what do the rest of the slots look like?
