What are Arena and Challenge Quests?
Arena and Challenge Quests are special quests that pit you against one or ore monsters in a closed area. They are essentially time attack quests that allow you to receive rewards based on how fast you can slay the target monsters in the arena.
How to Unlock Arena and Challenge Quests
Arena Quests are unlocked by meeting certain optional conditions during regular quests and become permanently available afterwards. Challenge Quests, meanwhile, can only be accessed during special events and have a limited period of availability.
Talk to Master Utsushi at the Gathering Hub to access Arena and Challenge quests.
Arena Quests have a few key mechanics that make them more challenging than most regular quests accessible through Hinoa (story) and Minoto (Gathering Hub).
- You can only use a fixed set of equipment (items, weapons, and armor)
- All target monsters must be slain to complete the quest
- You can access multiplayer to do an Arena or Challenge Quest with one other player (to be confirmed)
- You cannot bring a Palico or Palamute for the quest (to be confirmed)
