Time and Seasons
Monster Hunter 2 Dos introduces the concept of time with Day and Night passages. The game also progresses into different seasons. Each season will dictate a monster's behavior and the materials you get from quests. During the Warm Season, carnivorous monsters like Wyverns are highly active, thus the ideal time for hunting. Come the Cold Season, monsters will become aggressive due to hunger and food shortages. This is a good time to obtain rare monster materials. Breeding Season is a time when Herbivorous monsters are most active and Carnivorous monsters are at their least. This particular season is best to gather materials from the field.
By paying a certain amount of zenny, you may directly switch over to next season by using your bed.
