Jagras of the Ancient Forest 

Objective Slay 7 Jagras

Area Ancient Forest

Reward 720z

Time Limit 50 min.

Conditions None

Failure Conditions Time Expires, Faint 3 times

Other Monsters Aptonoth, Mernos

 After talking to the Handler and accepting the quest, you can depart to the quest. This quest is very simple, you have to slay 7 Jagras before the time limit being of 50 minutes. You’ll be heading to the tent (1) on the Ancient Forest. Head to where you had to hide from the Jagras in zone 2 to find your prey.

The field team leader will walk you through the basics. Make sure to pick up what you can along the way, specially herbs, honey, blue mushroom and antidotes.  Every item will be used somehow in combinations for different potions, bombs or traps that will help you on future fights. After you encounter the Jagras, just kill them! Don’t forget to carve each one after you kill them.

You will returning to Astera, there you can take your loot to the Smithy to begin forging weapons and armor from the pickings. You probably won’t be able to make the full set immediately, try going to the investigation team to do extra quests, or you can continue with your next assigned quest.


A Kestodon Kerfuffle and The Great Jagras Hunt

Objectives    Complete the assignment (hunt Kestodon), Hunt a Great Jagras

Area   Ancient Forest

Reward 1200z

Time Limit   50 min.

Conditions   None

Failure Conditions    Time Expires, Faint 3 times

Other Monsters Aptonoth, Jagras, Mernos

The Kestodon Kerfuffle is another simple quest in the Ancient Forest. Here you’ll be hunting 3 male Kestodon and 5 female ones. Males can be distinguished by the much larger crown on top of their head that they will charge you with. Thankfully the quest has divided the herd into two groups to hunt.

The first group of 1 male and 2 females will be right outside camp 1. The second of 2 males and 3 females will be down near the water. Avoid their charging attacks and you should be fine. Upon killing the full herd, the lead hunter will call you to come investigate something with him.

What once was a simple hunt for Kestodon morphs into the Great Jagras Hunt. You see a Great Jagras appear to gobble up a nearby herbivore. From here you can either go back to town and start this quest as a new venture or continue from A Kestodon Kerfuffle and tackle two quests with one trip.

There's not too much Great Jagras can do to you to greatly harm you. He has the simplist of claw swings, tail swings and charges. Avoid these and hack away and you should be fine.

After you track it down and kill it, a cut-scene will show a Pukei-Pukei coming into contact with a strange looking smouldering rock. The group agrees to head back to town first to report before heading out on your introduction to Expeditions.



Introduction to Expeditions and Bird-Brained Bandit

Objectives    Hunt a Kulu-Ya-Ku

Area  Ancient Forest

Reward 1800z

Time Limit    50 min.

Conditions   None

Failure Conditions    Time Expires, Faint 3 times

Other Monsters Aptonoth, Jagras, Mernos

 Upon returning to Asteria, you will find the need to create more base camps within the Ancient forest to continue your research. This is done via Expeditions[[Expeditions|]], a type of free roam quest in monster hunter that allows you to do anything, whether that be hunt any monster you find, collect resources, etc. There is no time limit and no fail count, but monsters you fight will have a period for which they will be huntable before fleeing, so hunt fast!

In this expedition[[Expedition|]], meet up with the hunter in the north-east corner of the map in zone 12. He has a new location for a possible camp he wants to show you. Upon arriving you will find a Kulu Ya-Ku has made it his home. After a short cutscene it will be your job to hunt it down, so you can properly make camp in this area.

This is a simple monster. Most of his attacks do minimal damage, so taking him out shouldn’t give you too much trouble. Keep a lookout for when he digs up a rock from the ground. He will try to use it to pound you with jump attacks and slam attacks. Do enough damage and you’ll force him to drop it. Keep an eye on your health and you should take this bird brain out no problem and move onto taking out Pukei-Pukei in Urgent: Pukei-Pukei Hunt.

If you're having trouble, check out the chart below to make sure you're using efficient equipment compared to its resistances.

You may be able to craft some Jagras Armor with some of the parts you carved from the Great Jagras in your last quest should you be struggling.

      Are there only two camps in the Coral Highlands? I've been running around looking in all the little holes I can find, and not one other camp aside from the two you start with.

            Hey, I'm looking for a specific Symbol on the Minimap that I can't see to find a definition for anywhere; it looks like a Green monster head with some teeth and a blue drop coming out of the corner of the mouth/ below the eye? Because I've picked up a couple Wyvern Tears, I figured that it was the monster crying, but I honestly have no idea what it is. Thanks!
