Start the quest in Ancient Forest Camp 17 as this is right next to Sector 16 where the nest will be located.

Head to Sector 16 and grab a Wyvern Egg from the nest but be ready to run as soon as you grab it because this will get the attention of a Rathian.

You will have a few seconds to get a head start and will need to run down from Sector 16 and take the path going to Sector 17.

You may have to fight the Rathian or at least force it to flee before you may safely bring back the Wyvern Egg.

Take the Wyvern Egg back to the camp and deliver it using the supply box.

Repeat the steps of gathering the Wyvern Egg twice and the quest will be complete.

After you have delivered 2 Wyvern Eggs, the Getting’ Yolked In The Forest quest will be complete and you will be rewarded with 3,600 Zenny.

The Wyvern Egg ingredient will be available in the canteen after the quest has been finished.


  • Using a mantle to help you stay hidden such as a Ghillie Mantle can aid you in getting buy monsters.
  • It may be necessary to wound or kill the Rathian to prevent it from causing trouble when you are carrying the eggs.
  • Go over the path once first before taking a Wyvern Egg to make sure you know where to run and that the path is clear.
