The Guiding Lands

Guiding Lands.jpg
The Guiding Lands is a new location you can unlock after completing the campaign in Monster Hunter World (MHW) Iceborne. After you defeat the final boss, you will be asked to go after Ruiner Nergigante. This is just a set up for you and your handler to discover a new island. The guiding lands is a chaotic area that mixed in all the existing areas into one stage. You're at the ancient forest and one area later, you'll be able to find lands with absolutely low temperatures!

Unlock The Guiding Lands

The Guiding Lands is an island that consists of different areas or Regions. Each biome is much like the different areas you have explored before, they are mini versions of The Ancient Forest, Widpire Waste, Coral HIghlands, Rotten Vale and Hoarfrost Reach. You must explore each area by discovering tracks or gathering from bonepiles and mining outcrops.

Increase Guiding Lands Region Levels

Your research level in each area will affect the materials you gather.

Tier Color Material
Tier 1 Yellow Tier 1/Tier 2 Materials
Tier 2 Orange Tier 2/Tier 3 Materials
Tier 3 Red Tier 3/Tier 4 Materials
Tier 4 Red Tier 4

Tier 4 Materials are the rarest and can only spawn in 2 different Regions at a time. The best approach is to reach Tier 4 Research Level in 2 adjacent Regions and gather the materials. It is also best to bring dung pods because higher research levels can increase the chances of tempered mosters appearing.

How To Reach Level 7

Initially, Region Levels will max out at 4. In order to increase these you much reach MR 49, 69 and 99.

Level 5 Sleep Now In The Fire MR49
Level 6 Big Burly Bash MR69
Level 7 To The Very End With You MR99

Best Ways To Increase Region Levels

Region Levels increase your chances of getting rarer materials. Remember that by increasing one area's Research Level, you are lowering another.

Trap Monsters

The best way to increase a zone's level is by trapping the target monster. By doing this, you can gain around 25 points each time. Due to this, an obsucre leveling strategy has resurfaced which is called Trap Spamming.

How to Trap Spam

Cooperation

Work with other hunters on the same zone to increase it's level. Make sure you are working on the same area to increase efficiency!

Hunting

Tracking down a monster and hunting is another way to gain reigon levels. Though, if this is not the target monster, it does not give you as many points as well as possibly take up more time and effort. Make sure you cut off a monster part to gain research points!
