The Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian pair, together with the 1.5.0/1.5.1 title update, indicates the last free update for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Whether or not Capcom will make a G or Master Rank expansion style for this game, no one knows. As a send-off, let’s grab one Silver Rathalos Monstie before you’re done with Monster Hunter Stories 2.
Monster Hunter Stories 2 – How To Get Silver Rathalos
1. From the ★9 (Slay) Silver Rathalos Co-Op Quest
You can get Gold Rathian by doing the “★9 (Slay) Silver Rathalos” Co-Op Quest from the Quest Board. Grab a friend or one of the Battle Buddies if you don’t want to face the quest with a randomized AI partner. There you have to slay a Silver Rathalos to finish the quest. And in the den, you can find its eggs as well.
2. Do the ★9 (Explore) Rare/Subspecies Den Co-Op Quest
As its name suggests, you will be able to find Rare and Subspecies of Monsties more easily through this particular Co-Op Quest. Both Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian eggs will spawn here as well as other Rare or Subspecies such as Molten Tigrex, Lucent Nargacuga, Stygian Zinogre, Red Khezu, and others.
3. Find the Eggs in Rare Dens
Several Reddit users have said that you can find Silver Rathalos in Rare Dens in Alcala Highlands/Alcala Valley areas including Lofty Trees. Apparently, you can get one from any kind of Rare Dens, but platinum-colored dens should give a higher percentage for Silver Rathalos egg to spawn.
Silver Rathalos itself is a Speed-type monster that is weak against Water element attacks, and these are the best weapon types you can use to break each body part of the silver sky emperor:
- Head: Slash
- Wings: Slash
- Stomach: Slash
- Tail: Slash
For more details about its weakness, you can head over to our Monsters Weaknesses list guide. Once you beat it, you will get the materials to let you craft the Golden Lune Armor+, containing Fire Boost (XL), Critical (L), and Soul Kinship (L). If you need more materials, the “★8 Shining Silver Sun” Subquest is available as well. Meanwhile, as a Monstie, Silver Rathalos has unique skills called:
- Flare Burst – Fire Breath Gene (XL), Level 1: Power type. Deals massive Fire damage to all enemies. Low chance to inflict Burn for 3 turns.
- King’s Judgement – Rave Gene (XL), Level 15: Power type. Deals heavy Fire damage to one enemy. Low chance to inflict Burn for 3 turns.
And that’s it, good luck on your hunts and ransacking monsters’ nests! Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is now available on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
