Capcom revealed the newest Elder Dragon, named Kulve Taroth, will be coming to Monster Hunter: World tomorrow. Of course, a new set of armor comes along with him. Players can also expect a new quest type, new layered armor, and a new weapon loot system for Kulve Taroth.
New Quest Type: Siege
Hunting this Elder Dragon is no small task, so the team at Capcom is allowing an entire gathering hub of players to take Kulve Taroth down. A total fo 16 players, four packs of four Hunters can contribute progress, working to break more parts and earn more rewards from the hunt of the same Kulve Taroth.
The Siege mode is balanced the same, no matter the size of the hunting party. SOS Flares are also disabled during this mode. Capcom suggests using the Search for Online Session function or Squad Sessions to build your fleet.
New Weapon Loot System
Kulve Taroth’s mantle is made up of weapons relics he has amassed while traveling to the New World.
The nature and quality of these weapons “are entirely up to fate.” Although focusing your efforts on breaking as many parts and dealing as much damage as you can, will give some exciting rewards.
New Armor and Layered Armor
As expected, the Smithy already has blueprints to make shiny new sets of α and β for Kulve Taroth. The new Layered Armor set will only change the appearance of your currently equipped armor, just make sure to look out for a special delivery request after you take on your first Kulve Taroth Siege.
The first Kulve Taroth Siege will start April 18th at 5:00 PM Pacific and will be live for a limited time.
