The Great Jagras Hunt (Main Quest) in MHW

The Great Jagras Hunt Main Quest MHW

  • Quest Type: Main Quest
  • Quest Location: Ancient Forest
  • Quest Rank: 2

Following the A Kestodon Kerfuffle quest, you are to track down and slay the Great Jagras that is lurking around as it puts those in the area in grave danger.

You will need to use your ability to track down the monster to its lair and kill it before it can cause harm to anyone.

Having an agitated Great Jagras on the lose poses a great threat for any explorers outside of Astera and you will need to deal with it immediately.


Your objective will be to hunt down the Great Jagras and put its life to an end so that it won’t be able to cause any harm to those from Astera.


You will first need to get a hold of its tracks which can be done by proceeding to the open area inside Sector 1.

For those that have decided to continue from the A Kestodon Kerfuffle quest, this is the same thing you will do after completing the quest.

Follow the tracks until they bring you to the Great Jagras and attack it to begin the phase where you head towards its nest.

Those that have continued from the A Kestodon Kerfuffle quest will already be heading towards its nest if they continued.

Once you approach its nest, it will be roaming around inside and you can rush towards it and proceed with attacking.

Deal as much damage as you can to the monster and ignore the smaller Jagras if they appear since they will watch from the side as you battle the larger monster.

After dealing a certain amount of damage, you will have to chase after the Jagras as it will most likely flee before being killed.

Continue tracking it down until its stops and turns neutral once more and proceeds with attacking it again.

The Jagras will attempt to fight back once again and once enough damage has been done, you will either kill it or cause it to run away again.

For those that kill the creature, the mission will come to an end.

If you still have not managed to kill the Great Jagras, it will continue to make its way back to its nest where it will attempt to rest.

Once you catch up to the monster, you will notice it may be already taking a rest in an attempt to heal from the fight.

Deal the final blows to it and the mission will come to an end.

Quest Rewards

After completing the The Great Jagras Hunt quest, you will be rewarded with 1200 Zenny and you will later on have access to the Bird-Brained Bandit quest after interacting with NPCs in Astera.


  • If you are continuing this quest from during the A Kestodon Kerfuffle quest, make sure to sharpen your weapon and check that you have the provisions you need.
  • The normal Jagras in the nest will not attempt to attack you right away but may do so if the Great Jagras has left or if you engage them.
  • The Great Jagras is vulnerable everywhere and can easily be killed with any weapon.
