PostSubject: Tips on getting Rathian Plates?   Sun Aug 01, 2010 6:55 pm

I've taken the dual Rathian/Rathalos 6* quest around 5 or 6 times now and I still have no plate. Yet I managed to get 4-5 'Ian spikes and 2 'Los wings.... 8I
Any tips on getting plates? I always cut off the tail and carve it. Yet no plate. Asdf! >:O

i believe you can only get the plates from the normal colored rathalos and rathian. capture one and then slay the other. you're on the right track but just to be sure, level up your hunter rank to increase your chances of getting more rare items. also break everything (head n wings) and yes, cut the tail off.. it also helps if you have felyne dismantle (hi) before heading out.

i forgot to mention there's a quest on the high rank where you can find the quest titled "The Two Queens" in the great arena. it's a pink rathian and a normal one. i'd aim for the normal one first coz it does more stampede charges on you than the pink one (if i recall correctly) anyway, this is the quest you should be looking for to get the plates easier and practice throwing flashbombs to blind both of them.

Thanks for the tips.
I've reached HR5 now and fianlly beat Nekoht's Narga Urgent quest so my chances of getting plates from a high rank Rathian would be higher.

Fastest way tp get Rathian plates:
Glint of moonlight quest from Nekoht.
Get in, chop her tail off, carve (takes me approx. 2 mins quest time with true devil slicer)
1. If you do not receive a plate, abandon and retry.
2. If you get a plate/ruby, you can either finish her off or die 3 times. :D
Simple.

Reason why I choose that quest is cause you don't have to walk far to get to her (Ian's only 1 area away) so it saves you the most time overall.
It helps if you have the armor skill carving celebrity which gives you 2 carves on tails,
or felyne dismantle [hi] like Zeith said.

Or you could always go the traditional way and hunt them relentlessly. I know I don't have the patience since Ian fights tend to be boring. More of a chore really. Guess I've hunted one too many Ian's recently. :P

PS: Regular green rathians give 12% plates on tails, where gold rathians give only 10% (Upper Rank HR4-6) so it's entirely up to you which quest you want to take.

Ironically, I got a plate from Gold Ian before reading this message. XP
So I have 2 now.
I just need a Rathalos Plate now for Corona and a Rathiam Ruby for Golden Falchion.
