Break Monster Parts

Once you find a monster in The Guiding Lands, you can break a part. This guarantees levelling up your current progress.

Break Native Monster Parts

To increase region level while cutting off a monster part, make sure that the monster you are hunting is native to that region.

Capture or Slay Monsters

Capturing and slaying monster will also increase investigation though, will take more time than just cutting off the monster parts. Monsters are usually in the same area and can start a turf war. Make sure to bring dung pods to make the hunt easier.

Keep note that Regions wherein a monster is not native will lower in level when you slay a specific monster.

Capture or Slay Native Monsters

Much like breaking parts, capturing and slaying monsters is better when you do it in their native region to increase the level.

Trap A Monster

Trapping a monster will also increase the Region Level.
