Iceborne is the first big expansion for Monster Hunter World. It adds a new area called Hoarfrost Reach, and a bunch of new monsters, weapons, armor sets and a whole new story. In order to go to the new area and start the whole adventure, you’ll have to complete a short quest first. If the quest isn’t showing up, keep reading our Monster Hunter World how to start Iceborne DLC quest guide.
How to start MHW Iceborne DLC?
When you start the game after you’ve bought and installed the expansion, you’ll be greeted with the above message. It says there’s a Legiana in the Ancient Forest, which is something you should investigate. If you don’t get this message upon starting the game, it means the DLC hasn’t launched in your region yet. If you’ve got the message, go and talk to the Feisty Fiver, the NPC hanging around next to the notice board in Astera.
He’ll send you on an expedition in the Ancient Forest. Just follow the handler while she tracks the beast. After you’ve reached the end, you’ll be rewarded with a cutscene. The quest will end after a lengthy conversation with the entire management around a sturdy wooden desk. Once that cutscene is over, and you’ve unlocked master rank, talk to the commander. He’ll give you the option to board the Third Fleet airship and head for Hoarfrost Reach.
You’ll land quite roughly, and you’ll have to establish a base camp yourself. You’ll also have to wrestle with your first native beast, a Beotodus. Defeat it, and you’ll be taken to Selina, the new hub. There, you’ll get your first quests, meet a bunch of new people, hang out in the hot springs and decorate your new quarters.
