______________________________________________________________________________
A. INTRODUCTION
________________________________________________________________/.(intduc).\__


There are quite a few monster hunters who aren't into treasure hunting since 
it doesn't unlock any other quests or rare weapons and armours in the game.

However, those people who want to take a pause from the main game and are
looking for a slightly different way of playing Monster Hunter, will find out
that treasure hunting holds a refreshing change of tune.

If you're already convinced and would like to start hunting for treasure, then
go to section B (Getting started) of this FAQ. If not, read on below to find
out all the good things treasure hunting can hold for you.

There is a plethora of benefits to treasure hunting, the most important ones
are as follows:

- A lot more variation than normal quests: you need to use almost all elements
  of gameplay, going from killing monsters to searching for items, carry eggs,
  learn to combine stuff, etc. It basically puts together all the things that
  make this game good into one single quest.

- Strategy: you'll need a well-cooked strategy to maximize the amount of
  points you'll get out of a quest. For example what areas will I gather in
  first, will we go after the boss monster together, is it worth wasting time
  by carrying an egg back home or am I better off dropping it and keep 
  searching for other items, etc. When you're on your first TH though, it's 
  best to just explore your surroundings before devising elaborate tactics.

- Get to know where all the gather spots can be found early in the game,
  in a fun way! Be warned though that 99% of the stuff you find on that spot
  in treasure hunting will not be the same as the items you get on a regular
  quest.

- The monsters in Treasure Hunting quests are pretty easy to kill since they
  are low on HP and attack power, which makes it good practice for the real
  thing.

- Complete your Guild Card. There are a total of 35 (7x5) rare treasures for
  you to find in the quests, which will appear on your guild card. Aside from
  that, you'll acquire the "Adventurer's Helm" award once you've collected
  all rare treasures and got gold high scores on each map.

- Make unique items that can only be combined during TH quests. These items
  give good treasure points, but also give you the corresponding decorations
  on your Guild Card and help you complete your combining list to get the
  "combining sage" title along with the alchemy book.

- Get rare items: there are a number of rare items unique to these quests that
  you can earn as rewards, like Gold Eggs, Silver Eggs and Expand Pickaxes. 
  These items will be very hard to get on the first few treasure hunt maps
  though.

- Expand Pickaxes. These are much desired by fellow hunters because they can
  be used to duplicate certain ore, bugs and bones. There are other ways to
  attain expand pickaxes, but TH'ing will probably be your easiest access to
  it.

- Choose to play alone or with a friend. Different tactics are in order when
  you play alone and it will also be harder to get a lot of points.


Hopefully you'll have a better understanding of what this type of quest is all
about thanks to this FAQ and learn to like it as much as I have.

Let the treasure hunting begin!





______________________________________________________________________________
B. GETTING STARTED
________________________________________________________________/.(getsta).\__


Now that you're convinced of all the benefits of TH'ing, it's time to get you
on your way to hunt for treasure.

First of all, there are a few things you need to know about TH'ing:

- Treasure hunting quests can be initiated by talking to Treshi, who is
  located in the bottom right corner of the guild hall.

- Treshi will accompany you on the quest and he will stay in the camp to 
  receive any items you bring him.

- You can find treasure items at every gather/bug/mining/mushroom spot and
  from the monsters roaming the land. Every item that is worth treasure points
  will have "(Treasure)" in yellow when you look it up in your inventory.

- Items in your inventory and carry items must be delivered to Treshi himself
  and NOT in the red box. Go near him and press circle to deliver.

- You can do your first TH quest from the start of the game, but only the
  Mountains map will be available for now. You'll unlock more maps as you
  progress in the main game. For more info, see "Frequently asked questions"
  section.

- The general point of these quests is to gain as many points as you possibly
  can, since this will determine how big your rewards will be.

- The number of Pokke points you'll receive, depends on your final Treasure 
  Hunting score, which is then divided by 10.

- Treasure hunting can only be done alone or with another player, so felyne
  fighters cannot come along.

- Unlike any normal quest, any items you have in your inventory before
  starting the quest cannot be used while TH'ing, so there is no point in
  bringing any megapotions, whetstones, etc with you.

- Evidently, only items from inside the quest can be used. This may seem 
  annoying, but it will allow you not to have to conserve on items. No items
  from inside the quest will be kept, so you may as well use them to the
  fullest during the quest itself.




The next thing you need to prepare for before getting started, is the
equipment you'll be wearing, as it is crucial in becoming a good treasure
hunter.


----------------
 Useful skills:                                                   (useski)
----------------

There are a number of skills that will greatly benefit your search for
treasure. These skills can be divided into 2 categories, armour skils
and felyne cat skills. The armour skills are listed in order of importance.


1) Armour skills:
   ---------------

- Backpacking Expert: carry eggs/rocks faster.

- High Speed Gathering: faster gathering/carving, meaning less time wasted.

- Carving Celebrity: once you have this skill, TH'ing will become much easier
   because you get an extra carve from every monster you kill. For example,
   when you kill a Giadrome, you'll have 3 instead of 2 chances at carving the
   rare treasure "Giadrome Jewel".

- Divine/Spirit's Whim: decreases likeliness of pickaxe/bugnet breaking.

- Gathering+1/+2: allows you to gather more items.

- Autotracker: allows tracking of boss monster without paintballing it.

- Fishing Expert: catch fish faster

- Runner: slower stamina consumption. Pretty useful for TH when carrying
   eggs, but power/mega juices are not that rare in TH quests.


Backpacking Expert is an absolute must. So is High Speed Gathering, especially
when it's easy to get with a simple Hide Belt. Carving Celebrity is very
useful to carve the rare treasures from monsters. Spirit's/Divine Whim will
get you a long way as well. Gathering+1/+2 will only be good for certain
gather spots, since a lot of the spots yield a fixed or infinite amount of
items in TH quests. Autotracker is less important because monsters only stay
in certain areas and their migration pattern isn't hard to read once you've
memorized it. Autotracker does come in handy when you want to kill the monster
as close to the camp as possible to minimize time loss from carrying items.




2) Felyne cat skills:
   -------------------

- Dismantle low/high: (small) chance at an extra carve, cumulates with armour
   skill "Carving Celebrity".

- Drop: monster 100% drops its shiny object when performing a certain action. 
   For example, when throwing a sonic bomb at Kut-ku (only works when he isn't
   in rage mode).

- Frugality: same as Divine/Spirit's Whim

- Gunpowder: makes your bombs bigger and more powerful

- Exchanger: receive 15% more Pokke points after a quest is done.

- Combine low/high: raises item combining succes rate

- Strongcat: small attacks don't bother you, e.g. vespoid stings when you
   carry an egg.

- Supercat: slower stamina decrease when carrying eggs

- Supercarver: you don't flinch from small attacks when carving.

- Paratrooper: recover faster from falling from high places, also eggs will
   never break from falling.

- Wrecker: destroy boulders that obstruct your path faster.


The felyne skills aren't listed in any particular order of importance, because
they are all useful in some way. "Dismantle" is very useful, but has
unreliable odds. "Drop" works really well on any boss monster, but is useless
on Giadrome and Congalala. "Frugality" is equally useful as "Divine Whim".
All the other skills are nice to have, but are not needed if you know what
you're doing.

Because of the rather random nature of Felyne skills getting activated, not
too much attention should be spent on trying to get them. In MHFU however,
you can save after having visited the kitchen and the effects will still be
there when you reload the game, contrary to MHF1&2. Because of this, it might
be good to save when you activate a good combination of felyne skills, just
in case you have to or want to start over a quest.




---------------------
 Armour suggestions:                                              (armsug)
---------------------


EARLY-GAME I recommend this simple armour combo:

1)- Any weapon
  - Chain Helm (+Blessing jewel)
  - Chain Mail
  - Vespoid Vambraces (+Blessing jewel)
  - Hide Belt
  - Vespoid Greaves (+Blessing jewel)

  Skills: Divine Whim, High Speed Gathering, Backpacking Expert
  NOTE: You'll need Pink Rathian Scales to make the Blessing jewels, so if you
        haven't unlocked that monster yet, you can do without Divine Whim.


2)If you really can't live without Autotracker, here is another combo:
  - Any weapon with 1 slot (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Hunter's Helm (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Hunter's Mail
  - Hunter Vambraces (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Hunter Tasset (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Hunter Greaves (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)

  Skills: Autotracker, Carving Iron Man, Divine Whim/Backpacking Expert/High
          Speed Gathering



MID-GAME I recommend this set:

1)- Any weapon
  - Eagle Eye Piercing (for Autotracker)/Sword Saint Piercing (for ESP)
  - Leather Armor S
  - Leather Vambraces S
  - Leather Belt S
  - Green Pants S

  Skills: Autotracker/ESP, Combine success+15%, High Speed Gathering,
          Gathering+1, Backpacking Expert

  NOTE: Throw in Chrome Metal Coat or Remobra Belt if you want Gathering+2
        instead of Combine succes+15%.


2)If you want Carving Celebrity, use this set (the other skills are useless
  though, unless you use a bowgun or bow):
        MALE         /    FEMALE
  - Any weapon with 1 slot (+Hidecutter Jewel)
  - Guild Knight Mask/Designer Glasses (+Hidecutter Jewel)
  - Guild Knight Vest/Personal Vest
  - Guild Knight Sleeves/Personal Sleeves (+Hidecutter Jewel)
  - Guild Knight Coat/Personal Frills (+Hidecutter Jewel)
  - Guild Knight Tights/Personal Tights (+Hidecutter Jewel)

  Skills: Carving Celebrity, Target Range Down, PelletS/Scatterbow Up


3)- Any weapon with 1 slot (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - BlueGuildGuardHat (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - BlueGuildGuardSuit
  - BlueGuildGuardGloves (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - BlueGuildGuardCoil (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - BlueGuildGuardBoots (+Blessing/Backpacker/Grab 'n Dash Jewel)

  Skills: Carving Celebrity, Divine Protection, Divine Whim/Backpacking Expert
          /High Speed Gathering, Bad Luck


4)- Any weapon with 2 slots (+Celebrity jewel)
  - Eagle Eye Piercing
  - Leather Armor S
  - Ceanataur Braces U (+Hermit jewel)
  - Hide Belt
  - Green Pants S

  Skills: Autotracker, High Speed Gathering, Gathering+1, Backpacking Expert,
          Reckless Abandon+1

  NOTE: You can choose Sharp Sword instead of Reckless Abandon, but then you
        need a weapon with 3 slots and 2x Cutter jewels.



The ultimate treasure hunting armour combo should be something like this:

1)- Any weapon with 2 slots (+ 2x Gathering Jewel)
  - Chain Helm U (+ 3x Gathering Jewel)
  - Chain Mail U (+ 2x Blessing Jewel)
  - Chain Vambraces U (+ 2x Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Melahoa Skirt U (+ 2x Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Coffee Pants (+ Gathering Jewel + Backpacking Jewel)

  Skills: Spirit's Whim, Gathering+2, High Speed Gathering, Backpacking
          Expert

  NOTE: If you have Eagle Eye Piercing, you can fiddle around with this armor
        combo until you get Autotracker, High Speed Gathering, Gathering+1,
        Backpacking Expert and Divine Whim.


2)And if you want Carving Celebrity (useful for any map, but especially for
  F&H, Volcano and Great Forest):
  - Any weapon with 2 slots (+ 2x Backpacker Jewel)
  - Gypceros Helm X (+ 2x Backpacker Jewel)
  - Gypceros Mail X (+Backpacker Jewel)
  - Gypceros Vambraces X (+ 2x Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Gypceros Tasset X (+ 2x Grab 'n Dash Jewel)
  - Gypceros Greaves X (+Grab 'n Dash Jewel)

  Skills: Carving Celebrity, High Speed Gathering, Backpacking Expert,
          Poison Duration Halved, Health Recovery Items Weak




-------------------
 Weapon of choice:                                                (weacho)
-------------------


Lastly, you'll need a strong weapon that kills the boss monster fast, but is 
also capable of destroying rocks quickly at the same time. For these reasons 
Lances, Gunlances, Hammers and Hunting Horns are recommended instead of SnS 
(bounce like hell on rocks), DS (tend to lose sharpness quickly), Great 
Swords (take a long time to charge) or Long Swords (only cut through rocks
when the "Spirit Gauge" is used).

In some quests you'll have to cut a monster's tail, which a hammer or hunting
horn cannot do. That only leaves lances and gunlances, but gunlances are much
better at blowing up rocks thanks to shellfire and wyverian fire. So by
process of elimination, they are definitely the prefered all-purpose weapon
type for treasure hunting.

Also look for a weapon with a long patch of at least green sharpness, because
whetstones aren't abundantly available in TH and sharpening costs time.

It goes without saying of course that you should pick a weapon type you're
comfortable with in terms of handling.





______________________________________________________________________________
C. STRATEGIES
________________________________________________________________/.(strteg).\__

This game can be played:

- 1 player
- 2 players: - Cooperatively
             - Competitively


It would be best to play Treasure Hunting with a friend since you'll usually
get twice as many points as you would on your own. It's the only Player Vs. 
Player (PvP) mode included in the game, but looking for treasures in a 
competitive way (like taking all the stuff from the box before your opponent
can, getting more points than your opponent or making sure he gets the least 
points by making him drop his egg/stone/jewel) doesn't do you any good since 
less points means less rewards. Cooperative play is therefore the prefered 
way. You can choose to protect your friend from monsters when he's carrying
something important, pass through certain items like pickaxes and bugnets,
signal where the dead boss monster lies, etc.


Because I strongly believe thinking through your own strategies to get as many
points as you can, is one of the biggest fun factors, I will only provide a
strategy guide for the first map (Mountains) as an example. If you want to,
you can still watch some very educational and entertaining videos made by
Icowa, I'll provide the link to them at the appropriate map below.

Mountains
---------

- 1 Player:

  First of all, take out of the blue box: map, whetstones, mega-potions,
  power juice, rations, pickaxe, bugnet, mega fishing fly, hot drink and a
  farcaster.

  Go straight to area 5 where you destroy one of the bolders that block your
  path, and kill the giaprey. Next go to area 6, kill the giaprey and wait for
  Giadrome to appear. Kill him, use a power juice and then carve him up. If
  you got Giadrome jewel, take it back to camp through area 5, but be careful
  not to fall from too high. If you didn't get it, go to area 3, kill the 
  blangos because they'll hinder you and go to the egg spot where you can
  gather twice for either Elder Dragon Tears or Frozen Meatballs. Even though
  the latter are not rare treasures, I suggest you carry them home as well,
  since they are worth 5000 points.

  Back at area 1, gather in the herb spot in the south for Embroidered Flag.
  Then at the bait spot for Blango Flurry Ball or Dragonrock. Lastly, fish for
  the pink Pickaxe fish (if there aren't any, exit and reenter area 1) until
  you get about 5 of them.

  Go to area 2, use your bugnet on the bugspot until it breaks. Climb the
  slope all the way to the top and jump down to your right onto the snowy
  plateau. You'll have to do a small leap of faith now: face east and do a
  running jump by keeping R pressed. You should land on a plateau with a honey
  spot, gather for Blango Flurry Balls and Embroidered Flag until it's empty.
  Jump down and climb the slope again all the way to the top. Jump down to
  your right again, but this time face west and drop down (don't hold R) at
  the mining point. Only keep mining until you get Pokke Quartz.

  Now climb to area 7 and gather at the most southern gather spot of the old
  camp for Blango Blizzard Balls and old pickaxes. At the herb spot, search
  for Blangonga Apple. At the whetstone spot, you might find another Blizzard
  Ball.

  Next, go to area 8, search the most southern herb spot for an embroidered
  flag if you didn't get one. Blow up the rock with your gunlance and enter
  the foxhole. Gather for a Blangona Apple at the herb spot, then climb up
  until you reach the Kushal mining spot. Mine until you get Pokke Quartz
  hopefully. If you found the Embroidered Flag before, climb up the rocks
  opposite to the Kushal mining point. Up there, use the Flag (select it, then
  press square) near the rock to raise it and you'll get 2000 points.
  
  In area 5 you can find a Blangonga Apple in the west herb spot. Then go to
  area 4, search the ice crystal spot for Flurry balls, blow up one of the
  rocks and search the honey spot for pickaxes and more Flurry Balls. Then
  take the first entrance into area 3 to mine the mining spot on the ledge for
  some more Balls. Combine any and all Blizzard/Flurry Balls you have to make
  Pokke Snowman. Use your farcaster and deliver your items to Treshi.
 

 With a little luck, you'll get at least a few rare treasure on your Guild
 Card and have a golden high score. Note that without Giadrome jewel, it will
 be very hard to get a golden high score just by yourself. Because of the
 limited amount of rare items, getting monstrous scores of over 100000 will be
 extremely unlikely, even with 2 players. As compensation, the requirements
 for gold high score will be lower though, being 30000 points.


- 2 players:

  Basically, you can stay together and do exactly the same thing as the other
  player while following the single player strategy. Just be sure to divide
  the supplies equally among each other.
  E.g. one person takes megapotions, power juice, bugnet, 10x mega fishing
  flies with half of them given to partner and a farcaster. The other person
  takes potions, rations,  hot drink, pickaxes, receives 5x mega fishing flies
  and farcaster.

  You can also specialize where one hunter is the main gatherer, while the
  other is the main hunter. But then you'll have to devise a totally different
  strategy for yourself.





______________________________________________________________________________
D. RARE TREASURES
________________________________________________________________/.(rartre).\__

In this section you will find an overview of all the treasures that appear on
your guild card. These are called "rare treasures" because they are items with
a rarity of above 6 that will appear on your card. There will be an overview
of the areas you can find them in. For more exactt locations, check section E
"Gather Spots".

In every map you have to combine 2 items to make a rare treasure item. So for
Mountains you have to search for the 2 items "Blango Flurry Bally" and 
"Blango Blizzard Ball". Once you have both, go to your combine menu and 
combine them. Even if you don't need the rare item, it's still better to 
combine it, since the rare item you create, will always be worth more points
than the 2 items seperately.

Also included is an item availability scale, namely "common", "uncommon" and
"rare". "Common" will roughly translate to a chance above 40%, "uncommon" 
between 10-40% and "rare" between 1-10% chance. Not that it matters much
though. Since it is based on luck, just keep gathering spots or killing
and carving monsters until you get the item you need.


NOTE: There aren't a lot of changes from MHF2, except for the addition of Old
Forest of course. But also in Volcano because of the addition of 2 new areas.
The biggest change in that map would be that "Athena Beetle" is now in area 10

E. GATHER SPOTS

These gather spots are based on Scooty-Puff's helpful maps that can be found
in the FAQ Section of MHF2, while the "Great Forest" map can be found in the
FAQ Section of MHFUnite. It is therefore strongly advised to have those maps
with you so that you can track down each individual gather spot with ease.

I have included the links to the TH maps for Mountains and Jungle, which
were also made by Scooty_Puff. This will make it even easier to search for 
treasure in these maps.

Lastly, for Mountains, Jungle and Desert, Icowa has made some very handy video
guides which will show you how to get a lot of points without even getting the
rare jewel treasures.

G. REWARDS
________________________________________________________________/.(rewrds).\__

This is a non-exhaustive overview of the items that you will receive in the
rewards based on your score at the end of the quest. It's non-exhaustive,
which means that the list doesn't include all of the items you can receive. It
should merely be used as a guideline for commonly given rewards, so if you'd 
want a Max Potion, you'd have to do a Jungle Treasure Hunt.

Also, the quantity&quality of your rewards depends greatly on the amount of
treasure points you've been able to gather during the quest. The other factor
would be luck, contrary to MHF, where the rewards of both players were always
the same.

H. Frequently Asked Quesions
________________________________________________________________/.(freqaq).\__

Q.: Where do I find [insert any item]?
A.: Press ctrl+f, type the name of the item you need to find and press enter.

Q.: Why do I have 0 points when my inventory is full of stuff?
A.: Just having the items in your inventory isn't enough. You have to deliver
    them to Treshi who stays behind in camp. Likewise, don't deliver carry
    items in the red box, but to Treshi by pressing circle when near him.

Q.: Why do I sometimes get the "can't carry anymore items" message?
A.: You need at least 1 free slot in your inventory to carry an egg/ stone.
    Otherwise that item will be lost when you pick it up, since you'll get the
    "Inventory Full" message.

Q.: In 2-player mode, if my friend found a rare treasure item and he delivered
    it, will it appear on my guild card as well?
A.: Yes.

Q.: Can you get a gold high score when playing solo?
A.: Yes, you can. I myself have obtained all my gold scores alone. You can
    even do it without carving rare jewels, check Icowa's videos how to for
    the first few maps.

Q.: Why doesn't [insert fish] appear? Your FAQ said it would be there.
A.: A major part of the game operates on some level of randomness. Re-enter
    an area if you don't see any fish that satisfy your needs. The type of
    fish that spawn will be reset. The fish is there, you just need a little
    luck.

Q.: What colour does the Brilliant Aji fish in Great Forest have?
A.: It's blue coloured, but with a different shape than Bugnet Fish.

Q:. How do I destroy rocks that are in my way?
A.: There are a lot of ways to do this, but explosive and impact attacks are
    much more effective than slashing attacks. Here is an overview from
    slowest to fastest:
   1) Use the "Taunt" Gesture, you'll destroy a large rock in 120 hits. A
      small rock will be destroyed in 80 hits.
   2) Kick it by pressing "select" with your weapon sheathed.
   3) Hit it with SnS.
   4) Hit it with Long Sword (spirit blade attack), Great Sword (charge
      attack), Lance (charge attack), Dual Swords (demon mode), Bow.
   5) Let the monsters in your vicinity help you. Stand near the rock while
      kicking it and they'll automatically attack the rock too. Bullfangos,
      Prey types and of course the boss monsters are very useful for this.
   6) Hit it with Hammer (spinning attack/superpound), Hunting Horn (smash
      attack), Gunlance (shellshots).
   7) Use Large Barrel Bombs, 1 is enough for small rocks, 2 for big ones.
   8) The Wyvern's Fire shot from a Gunlance destroys any rock in one blow.

Q.: How can I finish a treasure hunt?
A.: You will automatically finish the quest after 20 minutes have passed, but
    if you want to finish up before that, you can take the "Limited Paw Pass"
    from the blue box and deliver it in the red box, on the condition that you
    have already collected at least 2000 treasure points. Otherwise you'll 
    have to search for more items or just abandon the quest.

Q.: When do I unlock more maps for treasure hunting?
A.: Generally from progressing in the game, but more precisely:
   1) Mountains: default
   2) Jungle: Clear elder 1 star urgent quest "Slay the Giadrome"
   3) Desert: Clear elder 1 star urgent quest "Slay the Giadrome"
   4) Swamp: Clear elder 2 star urgent quest "Hunt the Khezu"
   5) Forest&Hills: Clear elder 2 star urgent quest "Hunt the Khezu"
   6) Volcano: Clear elder 3 star urgent quest "Hunt the Blangonga"
   7) Great Forest: Clear guild G rank urgent quest "Dual Hypnoc!"

Q.: Do I need to have unlocked the maps to just join a TH quest?
A.: No, you can join any treasure hunt your friend has initiated. Only the
    last map (Great Forest) requires that you are HR7 or above.

I. TIPS&TRICKS
________________________________________________________________/.(tiptrc).\__

- Always make sure you use your rations/juices first before picking up a carry
  item.

- Just before you jump off a small ledge while carrying an item, release the
  R button to avoid losing time from the recovery motion.

- If you already have at least 2000 treasure points, you'll get an extra 20
  seconds to deliver items when the 20 minutes are up. Hint: Use Farcaster!

- Kicking is a better way of destroying a rock when you're using SnS or Long
  Swords since you do just as many hits and damage in about the same time.
