Finding Kulu-Ya-Ku during the Expedition
To unlock the quest, you must have gone on your first expedition and found Kulu-Ya-Ku at the new campsite. To trigger the encounter, head to area 12 during the Ancient Forest expedition and talk to the hunter there. He will show you the location of a new area to set up camp. Kulu-Ya-Ku will be there when you arrive.
Kulu-Ya-Ku is an agile monster that moves around a lot. Using wide-swinging melee weapons like the long sword, great sword, or switch axe allows you to clip it as it dashes around the area. You will need to do a bit more chasing if you are using dual blades or sword and shield.
Be very careful when Kulu-Ya-Ku is holding a rock as it will throw out powerful attacks with it. Do not engage it head-on, as it can also use the rock as shield to block frontal strikes. Attack it from the side instead.
Watch out when you are at a fair distance away from Kulu-Ya-Ku. It can do a pounce attack that does massive damage. Ranged weapon users should be especially aware of this at all times.
