Kjarr weapons are powerful endgame weapons in Monster Hunter: World. They come in almost every type of weapon and element combination. There is a lot of randomization involved in getting them, which can make it confusing for some players.
This article will discuss how to obtain Kjarr weapons, and the best methods to farm them.
Overview of Kjarr Weapons Sources
Kjarr weapons are primarily and can be obtained as random rewards for hunting Kulve Terror.
The Kulve Taroth Siege is an event quest that’s designed for multiplayer. You can join up to 16 hunters and fight the Kulve Taroth. Rewards are split based on your contribution. In the next section, we’ll discuss the details of the siege.
Kjarr weapons can only be obtained through Kulve Taroth quests. You can easily identify them by the orange icon on the weapon and the naming scheme which always begins with “Kjarr.” Lower rarity Kulve Taroth weapons, called “Gold” or “Taroth.”
Iceborne has added a Master Rank version to the quest, with slightly different mechanics. This quest doesn’t allow you to obtain weapons, but you can get the Elder Melder materials. You can use Awakening Alchemy to sacrifice materials and research points in order to acquire Kulve Taroth weapons. This feature allows you to upgrade weapons already in your possession, making them extremely useful for endgame players.
There are two main methods to obtain Kjarr weapons. The first is by completing the Arch-Tempered Kulve Taroth Siege. The second is by using Awakening alchemy at Elder Melder using items from Master Rank Quest. Each method has its pros and cons. We’ll discuss the details in the sections below.
Method 1: Arch-Tempered Kulve Taroth Siege
The 9* special quest, The Fury of El Dorado, can help you defeat the Arch-Tempered Kulve Terrorist. You can find this quest at the Gathering Hub under the Siege tab. This quest is only available for a short time so make sure you take advantage of it as soon as possible!
There will be two things you need to remember throughout the siege: the Pursuit Level as well as the Reward Level.
Your damage output is increased by the Pursuit level. The higher the level, the easier it will be to destroy monster parts. Simply by collecting all tracks left behind by Kulve Taroth, you can easily increase your Pursuit Level.
The Reward level determines the quality and quantity of your final rewards. It’s therefore important to aim to achieve it as high as possible. Kulve Taroth can be broken to increase her Reward Level, such as her tail, horn plating and arms.
As we mentioned, Kulve Taroth siege works best when played in multiplayer. Although she has a lot of HP, all participating hunters contribute to making it more efficient. You can have as many as 16 players, and the game will be faster. You can keep trying even if your quest fails. Your overall HP is carried over to the next quest. Each player has a Pursuit Level, which is shared between them all. Every action makes it easier for everyone.
Reward Level cannot be shared. This means that you have to do the work yourself. If you want to receive good rewards, you will have to take on a lot of the work yourself.
How to prepare for the hunt
We’ll be discussing some of the useful skills and equipment that can be used in this quest.
Partbreaker can be a valuable skill, as Kulve Taroth is so full of breakable parts. It’s also an important mechanic to increase your Reward Level. You can also bring the usual offensive skills like Attack Up, Weakness Exploit and Critical Eye.
It’s best to use high-burst damage weapons like a greatsword or hammer for your equipment. It is important to maximize damage output due to the time limitations, especially when Kulve Taroth has been defeated. Due to her evolving elemental weaknesses and resistances it is best to bring a high-damage weapon with no element.
To deal large amounts of damage across wide areas, you can bring Large Barrel Bombs . You can bring many materials to make bombs and the Bombardier skill will increase your damage.
If you are concerned about your survival, make sure to have armor that is high in Fire Resistance. It’s also a good idea to bring Health Boost skills. The Fireproof Mantle is a great help, especially during her final phases when she uses many fire attacks.
Fighting Kulve Taroth
There are four phases to a fight, each with different environments and attack patterns. We’ll provide some general tips.
It is important to remember that , when Kulve Taloth’s golden armor turns red and molten it makes it much easier to break. It is the best time of year to target them and earn those reward levels!
You can also use to access many other things in the environment. There are many cannons on the map and rockfalls you can use to bring down Kulve Taroth in the first phase. There are many lava eruptions that cause constant damage, and you can trigger more lava rockfalls to do big damage in the third phase.
Remember that your main goal is to cut her horns. You must use every means possible to get to those parts. Jump off ledges whenever you can, grab her face and wallbang, mount her and knock her down, and so on.
Experience is the best teacher, as with many things. Do not be afraid to take on the quests, and you will soon be able to defeat one Kulve Taroth after the other!
Method 2: Master Rank, Awakening Alchemy
Master Rank Quest Mechanics
The Master Rank Kulve Taroth Quest is located in the Event Quest List, also known as The Eternal Gold Rush. This quest is only available for a short time, so make sure you keep your eyes open!
There are no Pursuit or Reward Levels and progress doesn’t carry over if is lost. You must defeat Kulve Taroth in the given time or your resources will be wasted and you will receive very few rewards.
There are time limits for each phase, as well as the overall time limit of 50 minutes. If you are unable to deal enough damage in each phase, Kulve Tanoth will still be capable of escaping and the quest will fail. This means that the quest is extremely fast-paced and you must be skilled and well-equipped to continue the damage output.
These changes aside, the old strategies that were mentioned earlier still work. Partbreaker is still very useful. The Fireproof Mantle still assists a lot in her fire attacks. You can also use the various environmental hazards.
This quest is easier than the normal Siege quest and can be completed faster if you know what you are doing. However, it will test your skills.
After you have defeated the Kulve Taroth, and obtained her materials you can now visit the Elder Melder to use these items to get more weapons.
You can choose from Kulve Alchemy, or Kjarr Alchemy to obtain Kulve Taroth weaponry. Kjarr Alchemy is more expensive, but it gives you rarer weapons. The amount of Points you have will determine the outcome. However, if you have lots, you can maximize your chances by using Kjarr Alchemy.
You will need one Large Elder Dragon Bone for every meld. This is in addition to Kulve Taroth parts and Research Points.
The pros and cons of each method
We have compiled a list of pros and cons for each of the main farming methods:
|Method 1: Arch-Tempered Kulve Tapoth||It is relatively easy to complete with a partyProgress, so even though you fail you will still get rewards||Higher HP means faster farming speeds. It all depends on how skilled your party is. This might mean that it may take some time.|
|Method 2: Master Rank, Awakening Alchemy||Master Rank quest requires lower HP. Each run must take 50 minutes. Solo, it is possible to clear the quest in solo. HP scales with participants.||You don’t get progress back, so failing to make progress means that you will not receive any rewards.|
It will be a compromise between farming in Arch-Tempered siege and Master Rank quest. However, there is a high chance that you’ll fail. Arch-Tempered Siege is a great way to get together a hunting party. If you are confident enough in your solo skills, the Master Rank quest can be a better option.
It’s better to test both and then decide which one works for you.
This guide should have helped you to understand the various ways of farming Kjarr weaponry. This is it for today. Happy hunting, as always!
