About Tempered Monsters and Threat Levels

Tempered Monsters are stronger versions of their original. Tempered Monsters are categorized according to their Threat Level (1, 2, or 3). The higher the Threat Level of a Tempered Monster, the easier it is to gain better rewards (such as Feystones and Streamstones).

You can tell what a monster's Threat Level is by the amount of fire symbols it has whenever you pick up its tracks, or by a mission's HR requirement.

Risk Level HR Required Monsters
1 HR13 Anjanath, Barroth, etc.
2 HR30 Deviljho, Lavasioth, etc.
3 HR50 Elder Dragons
