Monster Hunter: World’s newest creature requires up to 16 players to defeat

Kulve Taroth is solid gold

Monster Hunter: World players will need to coordinate at much larger scale if they want to tackle the newest in-game event: a battle with golden Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth.

The latest creature to join the ever-growing Monster Hunter universe, Kulve Taroth’s battle is part of the the game’s new Siege quests. Players must split off into separate hunting parties (which hold up to four) from the same Gathering Hub to investigate and repel the shimmering beast, which means up to 16 people can participate in the same quest.

While the Capcom announcement is light on the details on how each party will fight Kulve Taroth, it does stress the event is a limited affair, starting April 18 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.


But new monsters also mean new gear. Not only are both the male and female hunters are getting extremely shiny armor, but the Palico armor is some kind of golden, feathery getup. What’s more, Kulve Taroth’s mantle seems to be made up of treasure, promising some kind of weapon drops during the fight.

From the Capcom Unity blog:

The primary goal of this Siege is to repel Kulve Taroth, but its shimmering golden mantle happens to be a collection of shiny weapon relics it has gathered along its journey through the New World. We don’t have much information on when and where Kulve Taroth has amassed all these relics, so the nature and quality of these weapons (read: type and stats) are entirely up to fate.

This seems like an even bigger excuse to farm the beast for a third, fourth, fifth or tenth time. Let’s hope those drops are fair.
