This Monster Hunter World guide will teach you how to track and kill any monster in the game, including beasts like the Great Jagras, Anjanath, Rathalos, and Diablos.

Guide by Hirun Cryer, .

The Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth is a beast to be truly feared, and there's good reason to fear the elite Elder Dragon, since Capcom designed the monster to be primarily tackled by 16 players in total. In this Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Siege guide, we'll be walking you through how to defeat MHW Kulve Taroth, as well as detailing the various MHW Kulve Taroth armor items with any monster parts you manage to recover from the gigantic creature.

If you instead need anything else on Monster Hunter World, including how to track down some of the more powerful monsters like the Pink Rathian and all four other Elder Dragons, make sure to head over to our full Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Guide

The Kulve Taroth Siege event for Monster Hunter World was originally introduced in May, but it's a limited time event only. This means that the Kulve Taroth Siege event is going to be on and off over the coming months, and as of right now (July 24), it's active right now in Monster Hunter World.

Throughout the Kulve Taroth guide below, we’ll be walking you through how you can firstly go about tracking the beast down in the Ancient Forest, before you can unlock the actual Kulve Taroth Siege quest in Astera. We’ll also be detailing all the deadly attacks from the beast you need to be on the lookout for, when you come face to face with the Elder Dragon.

What is the Kulve Taroth?

The Kulve Taroth is a brand new creature for Monster Hunter World, and to say it’s massive would be an understatement. Sixteen players can take on a single Kulve Taroth at once, hacking away at its glistening exterior for all the good their tiny weapons will do. You’re going to spend a long time trying to take down this beast, that by comparison makes other Elder Dragons like the Nergigante look tiny.

How to Unlock Kulve Taroth Siege Quest

The Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Siege Quest won't be available straight away. Before you take on Kulve Taroth, you need to have met the following conditions:

  • Complete the main Monster Hunter World campaign.
  • Reach Hunter Rank 16.
  • Max out the Kulve Taroth tracking meter.

How to Track Kulve Taroth and max out the Tracking Meter

While the vast majority of players have already completed the main Monster Hunter World campaign (if the PS4 Trophies for the game are anything to go by), not a whole lot of players are going to know where to look to find the Kulve Taroth’s tracks, which act as the footprints for building up the tracking meter for the monster.

Starting from the Southwest camp in the Ancient Forest, you can find a Scattered Gold Chip right outside on a ledge in the big open area. Keep pressing forward, and you can find multiple footprints down the path ahead of you, all continually building up the tracking meter. You can also find Old Chipped Fangs for the Kulve Taroth as well in this area, and it’s an incredibly easy way to max out the tracking meter from just a single expedition.

How to Defeat Kulve Taroth - Best Weapons to Beat Kulve Taroth

Once you’ve successfully gathered all the tracks of the Kulve Taroth that you need in order to max out the tracking meter, the Admiral will approach you when you next return to Astera. You can now accept the Kulve Taroth Siege quest from under the ‘Special Assignments’ tab from the quest board, but only in the Gathering Hub of Astera.

Sixteen players will now team up in four groups of four, and will all be attacking the same Kulve Taroth. It’s not a competition between the teams, and the damage dealt to the Elder Dragon is shared throughout, and although less than sixteen players can take on the Kulve Taroth Siege quest, keep in mind that the difficulty for the special event has been scaled to sixteen players.

The main goal of all four teams is to successfully break the horns of the Kulve Taroth, before it leaves the area. If you can break the horns of the new Elder Dragon through sheer brute force, the quest will be completed, and you can obtain your special rewards from the Hub Lass in the Gathering Hub.

Once you’re dropped in the caverns of El Dorado, you’ll continually build up your Kulve Taroth you’ll be able to find the Kulve Taroth immediately ahead of you. You’ll now gain points for all the special actions you can pull off against the Elder Dragon, for example you’ll gain 20 points if you can force it to retreat to the second area in El Dorado, and you’ll gain 60 points if you can manage to break its left chest plating.

All these points count towards the reward level for the Kulve Taroth Siege quest, and for each level that it successfully increases by, the quality of the reward gained for completing the quest will increase. If you’re really going for the points quickly, then we’d recommend taking a fairly long weapon with decent reach, so you can reach upwards to the Kulve Taroth’s horns and chest plating, as well as armor that protects against fire element attacks, as well as a Cool Drink to stave off the heat of the lava in the third area of El Dorado.

Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Attacks

The Kulve Taroth has a variety of attacks, and each one can cover a massive area of the battlefield, given its huge size.

  • The Kulve Taroth can project a stream of fire from its mouth, scorching the ground in front of it.
  • Stay near the forearms of the Elder Dragon for too long, and it’ll sweep a claw along the ground directly in front of it.
  • Rearing back on its hind legs, the Kulve Taroth can come crashing down on the ground in front of it, obliterating anyone stood there.
  • If the monster looks to its side, you’ll know it’s about to roll over, crushing anyone stood to that side of it.
  • Kulve Taroth can also sweep its huge golden tail back and forth, slamming anyone out of the way immediately behind it.

Best Armor to use Against Kulve Taroth

We recommended bringing fire protective gear with you due to the Kulve Taroth’s ability to unleash a stream of deadly fire from its mouth in a line across the battlefield, although this is actually fairly easy to avoid. You’ll also need the Cool Drink item to protect you from the heat of the lava in the third area of El Dorado, if you can force the Kulve Taroth back that far.

Monster Hunter World Kulve Taroth Siege Rewards

We've mentioned that the points you accumulate during the Kulve Taroth Siege event will increase the reward level for the event, but what are the actual items that you can obtain from the event? They basically break down into two categories: Relic Weapons, and Kulve Taroth armor.

  • Relic Weapons - You'll only get these from actually completing the Kulve Taroth Siege event, and you'll need to take them to the Blacksmith to get them 'appraised', and find out just how good they actually are. The weapons and the stats of said weapons will be entirely randomised, so although they might look unqiue, they could end up being fairly useless unless you luck out.
  • Kulve Taroth Armor - With the Kulve Taroth armor on the other hand, you'll know exactly what you're getting when you craft the armor at the Smithy. Once you've accumulated enough reward tickets from the special siege event, you can head to the Smithy and select armor to craft either for your character, or your Palico.

We might be all done with this guide on how to take on the Kulve Taroth Siege quest, but keep an eye on this page, as we’ll be continually updating it whenever we uncover new details surrounding the brand new Elder Dragon.

    I feel so lucky that I got odogaron during my first hunt. I am new to MH and I was really intimidated with this monster. I always run away when he is close by, as I play solo right now. He is the ugliest monster for me and the most brutal (as a low rank hunter). I main Insect Glaive, Pulsar Rod III, and I mixed and matched Legiana Armor and Hornetaur Armor for him. I trapped him and oh thanked god I got him! Astera jerky is a must have too!

    Deviljho has no habitat, it's just like bazelguese and wanders killing anything that moves or is meaty, it will even eat it's own tail.

    These are the most unhelpful reviews on the Web. Eat a meal. Avoid attacks. It's the exact same how to for every monster. Try to do damage when possible. I mean really. Your advice is simply to play the game. No tips. No strategy. No nothing. Just try to hit it and not get hit. Thanks for the really great advice.

    Loving some one all your life and finding them changing sure does hurts like hell. My husband was once loving and caring but to a point he stopped and totally forsake me, he wasn't having time for me, all he was having time for was his work and cell phone, i was so devastated that i didn't know what to do. I did love him so much, even when he was still not caring i couldn't leave cause i still loved him, i sought for help from every where i could to have my husband back, i luckily found help from a man who was helping people out on relationship and marriage issues. I went on and contacted him, i explained what i was going through in my marriage, then he assured me that he would help me, i did all that he instructed me to do and then he told me that my husband would return to me after some days, i waited patiently and after some days passed my husband came home one evening and started apologizing to me to forgive him for how he had been treating me, i was so surprised beyond words that i can't thank this man enough. If you need his assistance you can contact him on: DR_MACK@YAHOO.COM
