Rathalos swoops into the world of Dragalia Lost in a special event

Jan 31, 2020 // Yuri Araujo

Gather ‘round hunters, and get ready to see some familiar faces from Monster Hunter in Dragalia Lost! Here’s an overview of the event, crafted by our friends at Nintendo:

Hunting season opens in the Dragalia Lost game as Monster Hunter monsters arrive! The prince and the Felyne must stand together against the impending threat, and fight as a team when confronted by Rathalos, King of the Skies. The time has come for the prince and friends to test their hunting instincts!

The Monster Hunter: Primal Crisis event, featuring content inspired by the Monster Hunter series in the world of the Dragalia Lost game, is now live!

Inspired by the Monster Hunter series

Get the 5★ dragon Rathalos and event-exclusive wyrmprints by performing blazon summons. You can also get event-exclusive weapons from the Treasure Trade that do increased damage to enemies in event quests. Smashing! What’s more, there is a stamina recovery item you can only get during this event: well-done steak! The miracle of food preservation means you’ll be able to use well-done steaks even after the event has ended.

Boss Battle with parts

In this event’s Boss Battle, you can attack separate parts of the boss enemy. Attacking these parts and demolishing them will fill your dragon gauge. Plus, collect otherworld fragments from the boss battle and use them to challenge the raid boss to get in-game rewards.

Introducing special action elements

Raid battles bring new strategies to the fight, which Monster Hunter fans might find familiar! Notte can blow the Demon Horn and apply a strength buff to your team, which can also be upgraded with a rare raid boost. Place mega barrel bombs that can deal big damage to enemies (and won’t hurt your allies). Do enough damage to parts on the raid boss to trigger the yellow stagger gauge—creating the perfect opportunity to strike!

Hunt alone or with partners in Trials

Bring your best to take on Trials, high-difficulty quests that pit you against powerful foes. Some Trials quests will have you facing off against two boss enemies at the same time, and defeating one of them will power up the remaining one. Trials come in both solo and co-op variations, with co-op unlocking for each quest once you clear it on solo. The co-op versions of the quests are only available at certain times, and you will not be able to challenge the quests unless they are available, even if you have met the requirements for co-op.

Happy Hunting!
