Kulve Taroth - Siege Quest Overview

Hunt & Repel Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth

The main goal and objective of the quest "The Fury of El Dorado" is to hunt and repel the Elder Dragon - Kulve Taroth. This Elder Dragon cannot be killed and can only be repelled. Effectiveness in hunting the monster increases by gathering special points.

Fight Kulve Taroth On Her Own

Like Xeno'jiiva, you'll face the Kulve Taroth on her own in a special map called the Caverns of El Dorado.

Raid Quest With 16 Hunters

The Kulve Taroth siege quest can have up to 16 players in the Gathering Hub working together to complete the objectives. These 16 hunters are broken up into parties of 4 hunters and each successfully complete quest will increase both Pursuit & Rewards levels of the siege.

Not Recommended For Solo Play

It's best to team up with fellow hunters to complete the quest faster and more efficiently. When done solo, even if properly geared, might take you up to 2-3 times as long compared to playing with 15 other hunters.

How To Raise Pursuit & Rewards Level

Raise Pursuit Level By Gathering Tracks

Raise Pursuit Level By Gathering Tracks

The best way to raise the Pursuit Level of Kulve Taroth is to gather its tracks (traces). This is done by picking up footprints and investigating gold chips. You can also raise the Pursuit Level by destroying monster parts, but this is harder to do earlier in the quest.

Pursuit Level Elongates Kulve Taroth's Stay

When the quest's Pursuit Level is high, the Kulve Taroth will stay longer in each area, making it possible for you to focus damage and destroy more of her parts. When the Pursuit Level is still low, it's best to focus on gathering her tracks instead.

Increase Rewards Level Via Pursuit Level & Breaking Parts

Increase Rewards Level Via Pursuit Level & Breaking Parts

The Kulve Taroth quest also has a Rewards Level that, when increased, determines the quality of your rewards when the quest is completed. The higher the level, the better your rewards. The maximum level is 17 and when you reach this, you can get up to 2 frames of Incandescent rewards.

Kulve Taroth - Attack Phases & Conditions

Information posted below is based off what was verified in the game.

How To Progress Kulve Taroth Area & Phases

Area / Phase Condition
Area 2 Deal enough damage to Kulve Taroth while in Area 1. If damage is too small, Kulve Taroth will leave the locale.
Area 3 Deal enough damage while fighting in Area 2.
Area 4 Kulve Taroth is released from her coat / armor.
Mollifying Deal enough damage to Kulve Taroth's chest.
Dive & Reform Armor Break parts other than Horn & Tail.
Release Break many of Kulve Taroth's parts. Element weakness changes to Ice.
Enraged Break many of Kulve Taroth's parts, including new reformed armor.

Breaking Kulve Taroth Parts Is Important

In this quest, it is very important to keep damaging Kulve Taroth and breaking many of her parts. This will increase both your Pursuit & Rewards levels. Make use of all your skills, cannons, bombs, and more to do as much damage as you can.

Prioritize Mollifying Her Armor

Focus your damage on the Kulve Taroth's chest to mollify her armor. This softens her golden plating up, making it easier for you to break her parts. When in Area 1, focus on dealing damage to her chest.

Element Weakness Changes After Release

When Kulve Taroth is released from her gold plating, her element weakness changes from Thunder to Ice. When this happens, make sure to use a Farcaster to go back to camp and switch your weapons to hit Kulve Taroth's elemental weakness.

Aim To Get Her In Enraged Mode

When Kulve Taroth becomes enraged, her attack pattern changes and she moves faster & more powerful. However, when you are able to repel her in this state, you will receive more Incandescent rewards.

Focus On Collecting Tracks In Area 1

If your Pursuit Level is still low for Kulve Taroth, it's best to focus on collecting tracks (traces) while she's still in Area 1. If you do damage to her and she proceeds to Area 2, you won't be able to pick up tracks & increase your Pursuit Level.

Start Attacking When Pursuit Level Is Higher

When you have Pursuit Level 2 or higher, you can start focusing your damage on the Kulve Taroth. With a combination of collecting tracks (traces) and destroying monster parts, you'll be able to raise the Pursuit Level efficiently.

Use Cannons To Deal Big Damage

There are several cannons in Area 1 that you can utilize to damage Kulve Taroth. Make sure to load them up beforehand and move the cannon's angles so that every cannon ball will hit her.

Bring Boulders Down On Kulve Taroth

There are several spots in this map that you can shoot to bring boulders down on Kulve Taroth. Doing so can inflict big damage on Kulve Taroth and stun her long enough for you to attack her chest & different body parts.

Prepare To Fight In Area 2

When you deal enough damage to Kulve Taroth in Area 1, she'll move to Area 2. Here she'll fight you more actively and can hit you with very powerful attacks. Don't forget to recover your health, sharpen your weapon, and use buffs before heading to Area 2.

Kulve Taroth Will Actively Fight In Area 2

Area 2 is where Kulve Taroth will start actively fighting you. Its attacks are extremely wide-ranged due to her size. She has rolling attacks, fire breath, and swipe moves that can bring your HP bar down in an instant.

Place Bombs When Monster Dives Into Ground

In this area, Kulve Taroth will often dive into the ground and reform her golden plating. When she does, lay down Mega Barrel Bombs where she dove down so you can damage her when she emerges from the ground.

Use Cool Drink Before Heading To Area 3

Area 3 does fire damage to you over time so it's best to consume a Cool Drink before heading into battle. When you do enough damage to Kulve Taroth, she'll move on to Area 3.

More Boulders To Shoot Down In Area 3

In Area 3, you'll be able to shoot down more boulders onto Kulve Taroth. Use your Slinger and shoot when the Kulve Taroth is directly under stalacties. This will deal very heavy damage on her and can knock her down for a bit.

Hit Kulve Taroth With Magma Eruption

There are magma eruptions in various spots in Area 3. You can lead Kulve Taroth to where the magma erupts and she'll get a lot of damage from this.

Release Kulve Taroth By Breaking Many Parts

In order to release Kulve Taroth and move her to Area 4, you need to destroy a lot of her golden plating and damage her horns and tail. When she is released, her elemental weakness changes to Ice. Go back to camp and switch weapons before heading into Area 4.

Kulve Taroth Moves Faster In Area 4

When Kulve Taroth moves to Area 4, she'll be able to move faster without her heavy gold plating. You also need to break her horns in this part of the mission.

Aim For Kulve Taroth's Horns

In this area, you need to focus your hits in destroying Kulve Taroth's horn. You can do this by doing mounting / jumping attacks using the pillar in the middle of the field. Use status effects such as sleep, stun, and paralysis to keep her in place.

Beware Of Magma Falling From Ceiling

Be aware of your environment especially while attacking Kulve Taroth. Magma will drip from the ceiling and pool onto the floor, damaging you. It's best to be aware and keep away from the magma to avoid getting hurt.

Use Weapons With Sleep & Mega Barrel Bombs

In this part of the quest, the most recommended weapons to use are those that can implement the sleep status effect. This gives you time to lay down barrel bombs and streamline your damage onto the monster's horns.
