The Ancient Forest. Land of trees, leaves and complex ecosystems. The ancient tree overlooks it all, an organism so big monsters and hunters move with ease throughout its twigs. Tobi-Kadachi, Rathian and Rathalos are among the few occupying the ancient tree, a perfect place to locate the nests of flying monsters. Astera is the only other place you can find another of its kind, one that you can nurse and raise via the Botanical Research Centre.
What can be found in the Ancient Forest?
Be wary of your surroundings upon your Ancient Forest journey. A plethora of life can be uncovered throughout this area; some can be harvested to help your adventures, others will prey on and disrupt you.
Hazards like Flashflies can create an intense explosion of light, whereas Poisoncups can create a pool of poisonous liquid. Threats can be harmful to the hunters and toxic to the monsters you're hunting. Use such dangers wisely and effectively as the fate of the monsters might just be the same as yours.
Hazards and other materials can be harvested for your needs and be used to craft or sell on. Moonlit Mushroom and Sunkissed Grass are exclusively found within the Ancient Forest and once harvested, can be used within the Canteen as ingredients. Other basic materials such as Herbs, Ancient Bone and Honey are also found throughout the area.
