How to get Great Spiritvein Gems in Monster Hunter World

IG or SA makes Nergigante go down easy!

Farming for Great Spiritvein Gems in Monster Hunter World was time-consuming until an Event Quest made it a 100% drop rate to get them. The old method of hunting Tempered Elder Dragons still works, but the drop rate for a Great Spiritvein Gem is only around 3%. This could be made much easier in The Guiding Lands and is still a good method for players who don't feel confident doing the Event Quest. This is how to farm Great Spirivein Gems in Monster Hunter World.

How to farm Great Spiritvein Gems in Monster Hunter World

Two Event Quests in Monster Hunter World make farming Great Spiritvein Gems extremely easy, with a guaranteed drop of at least one Gem. These are Ode to the Destruction, where players have to fight Ruiner Nergigante, and Mew Are Number One!, where players have to fight a Furious Rajang. Ode to the Destruction has the extra benefit of being able to drop up to two additional Gems. It's an 8% chance, but if players keep farming, this will really start to pay off. Of course, there are other ways of farming these items if players find these two quests overwhelming.

  • Blackveil Vaal Hazak - 3%
  • Kushala Daora - 3%
  • Teostra - 3%
  • Lunastra - 3%
  • Ruiner Nergigante - 3%
  • Namielle - 3%
  • Velkhana - 3%
  • Kirin - 1%
  • Stygian Zinogre - 5%
  • Seething Bazelguese - 3%

What are Great Spiritvein Gems used for in Monster Hunter World

Great Spiritvein Gems are used to Augment Equipment when talking to the Smithy. They specifically are used to increase the slots of Rank 12 Weapons, the upgrade cap for Rank 12 Armor, and change the appearance of any weapon to appear like a Rank 12 weapon. This works even on Safi'jiiva and Zinogre weapons, although Zinogre weapons will require lots Fulgurbug farming. Augmenting these stronger weapons only makes them more powerful and will start making farming much easier.
