Tired of getting LBG when you want a bow? Maybe you are getting SA rather than CB? In addition to the expedition system for what monsters you kill in order to get the quest, there is also the bias. You might be doing a quest for SA/CB/IG but you aren’t getting any SA drops.

First I recommend you read up on Guild Quest Monsters to get an idea of how to get the monster you want. From that list we can see the possible bias your GQ will have and how you can tell if the GQ will even give you the right weapon by the time you get it to 140.

The first thing you should know is that guild quests can come in 1 or 2 monster flavors, the single monster versions are pretty straight forward. The monster determines what type of weapon it will drop and what it will look like. The monster also determines how often you will get rewards. High risk monsters, like Rajang, will give more rewards than a Velocidrome.

The double monster variant is where things get tricky. Here the order of the monsters becomes important. The left hand monster will determine what type/look of a weapon is dropped, the right hand monster determines the risk/reward of the guild quest. So lets say you have a Kut-Ku/Rajang – LBG/HBG/Bow GQ. The Kut-Ku determines the weapon, in this case only bows, and what it looks like, the Queen Blaster, and the Rajang being one of the highest risk monsters means you will have the most rewards for the most chance at a high-grade bow.

Bias

To begin, each bias has 2 or 3 weapons that can come from a quest. The are grouped together by similar type:

  • Greatsword/Longsword
  • Sword and Shield/Dual Blades
  • Hammer/Hunting Horn
  • LBG/HBG/Bow
  • Switch Axe/Insect Glaive/Charge Blade
  • Lance/Gunlance

Monster Bias

Now that we know what the different Bias are, lets take a look at what monsters can come with each Bias

As you can see HBG, LBG, CB, and SA have lists that don’t have every monster. That means those monsters, while they may have that specific bias, may not actually give you the weapon type you are after.

Here is the same list broken down by mob and weapon type. For simplicity I’m lumping all the weapons that can come from any mob into the first list.

MonsterGS/LS/SnS/DB/Hammer/HH/Lance/GL/IG/BowHBGLBGSACB
Velocidromexxx
Yian Kut-Kuxx
Blue Yian Kut-Kuxx

Brachydiosxxx
Deviljhoxxx
Oroshi Kirinxxx
Kushala Daoraxxx
Yian Garugaxxxx
Rajangxxxx
Teostraxxx
Chameleosxxx
Shagaru Magalaxxx

So that is quite the list. Now, it should be noted that there are 2 special cases in the LBG/HBG/Bow group. When you have a Yian Kut-Ku or the Blue Yian Kut-Ku it will only ever drop bows. Likewise Yian Garuga and Rajang are the only ones where you can get any of the 3, LBG, HBG, or Bow. Now you would only be concerned with this if 1) You don’t like the look of the Queen’s Blaster (Kut-Ku only bow), or if you want the look of the Cahoe HBG, Dragon Bow, or Thundercrack LBG as you have only a 33% chance to get that weapon (Garuga or Rajang).

Now on to the weapons themselves. Each set of monsters has a specific look that it can give to the weapon that drops.
