I am the top geographer in Minegarde. What you hold in your hands is the record of my life's research into the wonderful lands of this world. The fifth part in my series will cover the Forest and Hills zone.
The temperate climate of the Forest and Hills zone makes it a popular home for large numbers of herbivores such as the Aptonoth and Mosswine. However, the monsters who prey on herbivores, such as the Velociprey, are also present, giving this zone a tinge of danger. These monsters tend to move in packs, so be careful not to get surrounded.
This area also has an abundance of plant vegetation. For instance, Herbs and Blue Mushrooms. Not to mention items important to gunners like Paintberry, and Needleberry. All of these can be obtained easily in this area.
You can also search for Honey in the Forest and Hills. Honey is an incredibly beneficial item for hunters. It can be obtained from honeycombs found in the field.
Where there are changes in elevation, a hunter can press the button near low cliffs or vine covered walls to climb up.
The main point of concern with the Forest and Hills zone is without question the presence of a wyvern called Rathalos. Known as the King of the Skies, it is fiercely territorial and rewards any encroachment in kind. One must be especially careful when it is entering or exiting its cave dwelling.
We have also confirmed that recent years have brought the appearance of a masked tribe called Shakalakas. Compared to other native tribes, they are particularly ferocious. Often mistaken for mushrooms in the field, the Shakalakas are incredibly dangerous to hunters.
Other Notes -Wyvern Eggs-
One can find Wyvern Eggs in nests secluded in mountain caves. Valuable, but incredibly dangerous to obtain.
