Some Events give double HR/MR, they are way more efficient if you can do them within 5-10 minutes. (Choose quests with some bird wyverns)

I lured out a zinogre at forest lvl 1. That normal rite?

Anonymous 3

MR 69 is in fact Level 6 :D

Anonymous 2

That's incorrect you only need to be master rank 69 aka get to level 5 to be able to hunt these monsters.

Gold Rathian, silver Rathalos and Brute Tiger are all in level 6 Regions. Not in level 5 regions, pls correct this
