Eat, use fresh items, and get the type of cooking that gives the skill. It will be the last one all the time, so just look for it.

It's random. Each time before a quest if you go to eat the list of skills for the 4 different cooking methods will be randomly generated. Note that some skills (lucky cat and the extra carves ones) will randomly be applied without showing up in the list. Which ingredients shouldn't affect the skills, but choosing fresh ingredients will make it more likely more of them will activate.

Oh wow. Been playing for 150+ hours and didn't notice the random skill section.

Yeah, what ingredients you use has no bearing on the felyne skills, only the FRESHNESS matters because using fresh ingredients increases your chances of getting felyne skills.

Explorer is always on the bottom, so just pick two fresh ingredients then cycle through the cooking methods looking at the bottom for Explorer.

If explorer is available, chances are you'll get it if you used fresh ingredients.

Once you get it, make sure you don't pick a harvest tour quest or anything else that starts you off at the camp, otherwise it will be wasted. Random start location only.

Good way to get Dragonbone Relics. Pick any high rank Tundra mission (except harvest tour of course) once you get Explorer and the bone pile there has a good chance of relics.
Is there something about the way I type that makes it sound angry? Maybe it's just something about the way you read.

Yea, dragonbone relics is what I'm trying to get. Been to the secret area twice so far and only got 1 bone each time.

There are random start locations? O.o I'm guess that's High Rank only?
