How to get a Silver Rathalos Egg in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin – Silver Rathalos Monstie

Silver is tougher than Gold

To get a Silver Rathalos Egg, you must first make sure your game is updated to 1.5.1. On the title screen, look at the bottom right-hand corner, and it should say Ver. 1.5.1—once you have that, you are good to go.

Interact with any Quest Board in any village, go to Multiplayer and Online Play. Navigate to the Slay Quests tab, and look down the list for the quest (Slay) Silver Rathalos. This is a Nine Star quest, so bring with you your best monsties. You can attempt this solo and be given an AI companion to help you. But compared to a real-life person, they are highly inadequate.

Silver Rathalos is weak to Water, so make sure you have those who can inflict water damage, as well as all three attack types. Press Y, Z, or Triangle to change your party and choose your monsties after clicking Edit Party.

Explore the area, and locate Silver Rathalos's den. If you don't want to fight anything on your travels, bring along a Nargacuga and use its Stealth monster ability not to get aggroed by any monsters. You'll get to your destination in peace.

This is an extremely hard fight. If you had trouble with Gold Rathian, you'll have even more trouble with Silver Rathalos. With more health and massively damaging Area of Attack moves and combo single attack moves. As well as all three attack types.

Once the Silver Rathalos is defeated, you can loot the nest for eggs. Due to Silver Rathian being a rare form, the egg pattern has been altered slightly and is extremely hard to find. Use the picture below to know what egg you are after—the silver with purple lines.

Like usual, walk towards the exit of the den with your prize and make sure the egg is stored. Then go and hatch it to see if you were lucky enough to get Silver Rathalos as a Monstie. If not, rinse and repeat.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
