Herbivore Egg Hunt-Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Game Guides
Quest: Herbivore Egg Hunt!
Client: Newlywed Wife
Main Quest: Deliver 2 Herbivore Eggs (1000z)
Subquest A: Deliver 1 Herbivore Egg (1000z)
Subquest B: Slay 5 Jaggia (900z)
This quest’s directions tell you to search under the tree in the oasis (located in Sandy Plains) for herbivore eggs. You need to deliver two in order to complete the quest. When you arrive in the plains, grab the desired items from the supply box (including some drinks to withstand the harsh desert temperatures) and then make your way to Area 7. There are obstructions placed around the map, so you’ll have to reach your destination by charting a course through areas 1, 4, 8 and 10. Kill any monsters that you encounter along the way in those regions, being as thorough as possible since any enemies that remain will be a pain in the butt momentarily. When you reach Area 7, there will be some Rhenoplos enemies gathered around a tree. Kill them, then a fourth one that will appear shortly thereafter. Then head over to the tree and dig out a Herbivore Egg.
(Above Left) Dig around at the base of the tree in Area 7 after you kill the Rhenoplos monsters that are guarding it. (Above Right) Take the Herbivore Egg that you obtain with you as you return to camp.
Now that you have the egg, you need to get it back to the red chest in your camp. If you are hit by an enemy along the way or you try to roll, the egg will crack. The trick is to backtrack along the path that you cleared on the way to the egg. Start by heading back to Area 10. From there, backtrack to areas 8, 4 and 1, trying to stay to the sides to avoid attracting the attention of any enemies who may have returned. If you did your job properly on the way to the egg, there shouldn’t be any enemies, but it’s best to play it safe. The worst part of the journey back is Area 4, but you should be okay if you stay along the side.
