What qualifies a quest as "High Rank"?

#1ccaad5Posted 3/24/2013 7:15:17 PM
New to the series, but enjoying it quite a bit already. I made some Jaggi armor and just upgraded my Switch Axe to a Pecospander, when I noticed the next upgrade needs a Monster Bone+, which apparently comes as a reward from High Rank quests.

I'm into 4 star quests in the village, how far from these quests am I?

No, monster bone plus are as simple as farming Gobul.
No idea who told you those were high rank.
Secondly high rank quests spawn you in a random area on the map with no supplies for a period of time & the enemies have increased health/damage.
They also have entirely different carves/rewards.

high rank - village 6-star quests starts High Rank

Tavern - 3 star quests is considered high rank

This.

And Monster Bone+ aren't highrank items, they're just more common in early village highrank quests.

Ugh, why Gobul of all things.

It's not even all that hard, I just hate its face. I don't want to LOOK at it as long as it takes to kill it.

What's the drop rate like from Gobul?

Relatively high actually.
There are alternatives.. but he has consistently given me one+ every time I killed him.
Hence why I suggested him.

Probably a Tri veteran. Back in Tri, Bone+ was a HR-only item. Confused me for a while too, until I noticed weapons with 3 rarity were asking for it...

(For those who don't know yet, the highest weapon rarity available in low rank is 3. A handy tip when you're looking at the weapon tree. I don't know the cutoff for high rank, but I believe it's 6.)

Fair enough. Thanks for the tip. My brother played a lot of Tri and told me most + items were high rank drops so I just assumed.

I got only 1 monster bone + from gobul, farmed him about 5 times.


I got 1 from rathalos after 5 tries.


And i got 3 from Lagi after 1 try.



Take that as you will.

For equipment rarity i think it's 1-3 = low rank
4-7 =high rank
8-10 = g-rank
