Monster Hunter: World – Winter Star Fest Begins
The newest seasonal event is here for Monster Hunter: World, and it’s a biggun’. The Winter Star shines over Astera in the Winter Star Fest, bringing with it all manner of new and old monsters to hunt and rewards to unlock.
And alongside returning events, Capcom is also introducing new Limited Bounties to earn Winter Star Tickets. These are needed to craft the gear for your hunter and your palico, so you need to complete at least a few of these. The Bounties refresh every 24 hours, and as of writing the first batch should still be up. You’ll need to hunt two regular Rathalos, and yes LR Raths count, as well as hunt one Azure Rath. You can also complete two Event Quests. I recommend the Midnight Madness Rank 6 Quest to complete two Quests easily.
But it’s not just Limited Bounties with special conditions that add fun for this final seasonal event of 2018 in Monster Hunter World. Almost all of the old Event Quests from previous events are returning. So this is your chance to grab all manner of old event gear and weapons that you may be missing. Console gamers have missed out on another shot at Kulve Taroth though. And the DMC Code Red Quest is also missing.
The new Orion armor sets are pretty cool, and are a great stop-gap solution for while you’re building another set. Check them out:
