Finding the Kestodon

A group of Kestodon can be found in area 1 just outside the camp. More of them can be found in area 4 by the shore.

Stay on the Move

Do no let yourself get swarmed by the Kestodon as they can prove troublesome in groups. Watch out for the large male Kestodons, as they tend to perform a charging attack when they are out of your field of vision. Getting hit twice will stun you and leave you open for another hit. Do not take them lightly and keep moving as you attack.

Carve the Slain Kestodon

The bone armor set, one of the best starting armor sets in the game, requires Kestodon materials to craft. Try to carve slain Kestodon to get at least three Kestodon shells to make the set.

The Great Jagras Hunt will Immediately Start After Clearing

Clearing the objective immediately starts the next assigned quest. You will be up against a Great Jagras so take the time to prepare for the fight by gathering some herbs to make potions.
