      You unlock this quest by finishing all optional and special arena quests up to 7 star difficulty. I unlocked this quest after realizing I was missing a special arena uraagan.

            For being the final Quest I expected something a bit more challenging, but It's always chill n' nice to see how far you've come from bashing those fours heads . c:

              quick question, how do you get the "completed!" mark to be red? i have completed every quest for 4 star and 6 star, but the "completed!" mark is silver or gray. is there a way to make them red?

                You MUST complete the 9 star Xeno optional. We did everything except that and it unlocked as soon as it was completed. Edited wiki.

                  So specific times: Legiana starts in the arena. Odogaron enters after 3 minutes (22:00 left) Diablos enters after 8 minutes (17:00 left) Rathalos enters after 10 minutes (15:00 left) No matter how long it takes you to finish the prior monster/s off the entrance time is the same, except rathalos who won't enter until there's 3 or fewer monsters in the arena. Similarly if you, say, don't get to this mission until you're well onto threat level 3 tempered and thus finish a given monster/set with minutes to spare, it won't release the next early; you just kinda have to sit there. Also remember you can still capture monsters you fight in arena, which will speed things up a little if you get the quest earlier and find you're struggling with time.

                    "It's a reward for completing ALL optional quests," This is factually untrue. The pigment was obtained with 9 star quests still blue for me.

                      the only condition is completing all optional quests. this INCLUDES that you have done all special arena quests after capturing the monsters. (low rank as well as high rank). you can see if you miss a quest if you only have a blue completed sign instead of the red one what you're aiming for at 1-8 stars quests.

                        You don't need to capture every monster twice. HR49 quest unlocked this for me and i have (1) captures on most monsters in my field guide

                          Got the rainbow pigment on PC from beating this while still needing to unlock the level 1 & 2 tempered monster optional quests.

                            Conditions to unlock are as follows. 1) 15 different monster have maxed out research (doesn't matter if it's high rank only or both high/low so long as it's maxed out). 2) Capture at least 1 of every creature (low & high ranks are considered different creatures so have to capture some twice; once as low & then again as high). 3) All optional quests from rank 1 to 8 completed (this does not count for any downloaded content; this means some optional quest can be missed).

                              I dont think this is 100% rank 8 quest arnt all done quest opened and the quest giver was commenting on the fact that I finished so much research. I was given the white winds of the new world ..finished it ..and on screen it said rainbow colors were unlocked. I still have 1 uncompleted rank 8 but I can launch white winds of the new world over and over.

                                Well just to Aden it to notes.
                                Legiana starts alone, id say 2-4 mins odogaron shows up. The third one here is tricky. If you take too long to kill either legi or odo diablos will show up anyways, I’d say pretty much 10 or more in the battle. Finally rathalos will show up as long as you have less than 3 monsters alive in the arena(the time Ian toughly after 15).
                                In a nutshell, I’d say the spam rate goes roughly from 4-6 mins per monster.
