sever the tail (if its a subquest) and ending the quest at camp?

EDIT: Basically, a tail run.

I'm pretty sure the fastest way to do it is by severing the tail,
then ending via sub-quest (:
(Be sure to carve the tail each time also!)

Assuming high rank, probably much faster to run Mating Season than tail runs. Use good/great luck and have at it.

Do offline mating season. It has plates as a quest reward, nothing else does.

Yus i mean both rathian that spawn in poach wyvern egg LR offline i think?) ian tail if you can under the time limit, cap both, best of luck. there many possibility, just choose one. GL!

I'd say there's about two "superior" ways to do it:

1. Do mating season offline with HR weapons. If you cap ian, you'll have about 12,4% chance to get a single one (14% average). The stupid part will be where you are fighting rathalos and wondering why. If you've got a good setup, it shouldn't take too long however. The biggest advantage of doing this is the possiblity of rathalos plates.

2. Highrank tail runs. If you've got one or two others with the same objective, doing a run will take very little time. There's a 10% chance per run, so you're gonna need some focus. It'll be quite a bit faster than option nr. 1, but i personally dislike this. It feels a bit like you should have gone all the way and killed it instead of running away every time. Oh, and you'll have to capture it should one of the participants get a plate. Yields a small chance for a plate too.

According to my maffs, it's a 29.638% chance usually (or a 37.152% chance with great luck and capture expert) of at least 1 plate.

And the expected values are .344 and .454 respectively.

So about 3 runs of mating season should, on average, get you a plate.

And since this game has a sick sense of humor.... 8 runs ought to do it.

Or when the game is feeling real moody, probably around 25 runs....

If you're not having any luck with a particular material,keep trying.When given the fastest method for getting said material,you can't expect anything more helpfull.Simply try,then try again....rinse and repeat until you're successfull. :o

When all else fails,you could wire money to my bank account.I'll send you the super secret code that 999ers get,along with that sexy red name,for getting better results in monster carves and rewards. ;)

Sigh, they made a quest with plates in the base reward section but people still refuse to do it. Cross your fingers and hope the next one drops faster doing it the hard way...
