Actually both comments are pretty bad.... The author should have mentioned that this wasn't for iceborne players... Secondly you can get 15-20k with decent luck farming hoarfrost reach investigations with feline researcher and upsurge ****erburs.

Ignore the other comment, this route is primarily for players who do NOT own Iceborne, or haven't progressed far enough to use the guiding lands, this route is still really effective on the 28th of November 2020

Or farm Guiding Lands for 5k more RP than this, with no Upsurge waiting/time limit h***le, while getting end game crafting materials, Steamworks fuel, turf war Lure research and locale preference for monster track research AT THE SAME TIME.

Author didn't research farming, be warned.
