Monster Hunter World Commendations are rare materials used for crafting equipment. Here, we’ll speak about where and how exactly to get the Monster Hunter World Commendations.
Unlike most other crafting materials, these items cannot be directly obtained from slaying and carving a monster. Instead, Commendations are given as quest rewards for completing specific quests. There are many missions that reward Commendations, but they’re most often obtained from Zorah Magdaro’s quests.
Quests that Reward Commendations
- A Colossal Task – Assigned Quest, 6*
- Left Quite The Impression – Optional Quest, 6*
- Gaze Upon The Dawn – Event Quest, 6*
It’s important to consider why these quests have limited availability. A Colossal Task is unlocked upon reaching HR10, but, as an Assigned Quest, it can only be cleared once for the rewards. Left Quite the Impression is really a repeatable Optional Quest, but it won’t often be available.
It includes a random chance to be activated after some other quest that you complete, after which you can clear it twice before it’s gone again. Gaze Upon the Dawn, on one other hand, could be repeated indefinitely, but only throughout its duration as an Event Quest.
This can largely be determined by the game server, which puts various quests on rotation. A good thing to accomplish here’s to really make the most out of those quests whenever they’re available.
Other Sources of Commendations
Besides the Zorah Magdaros quests mentioned earlier, there are a few other notable quests that reward Monster Hunter World Commendations upon completion:
- Gone in a Flash – 5* Optional Quest (Slay a Kirin)
- Redefining the “Power Couple” – 5* Optional Quest (Hunt a Rathalos and a Rathian)
While these quests could be repeated indefinitely, they both have their very own conditions to unlock. Gone in a Flash requires HR8, and you will need to keep in touch with the Impatient Biologist in Astera to access it.
Meanwhile, Redefining the “Power Couple” requires you to accomplish two other quests first, namely, Horned Tyrant Below the Sands (5* Optional Quest, HR8+, Hunt a Diablos) and A Fiery Throne Atop the Forest (5* Optional Quest, HR8+, Hunt a Rathalos). After completing them, you will need to keep in touch with The Armory to get the quest.
It’s worth noting that Commendations can be obtained as a random reward for finishing some High Rank (6* and above) quests, but the drop rates are low and unreliable. If you’re trying to obtain enough materials for equipment, it’s best to accomplish the quests stated earlier, as they guarantee one Monster Hunter World Commendation each time.
This item also shouldn’t be confused with High Commendation, which really is a similar item obtained as an incentive for specific quests, but at higher ranks. Once you have obtained enough Commendations, now you can use these to craft some useful equipment, such as the Brigade armor set, or the Defender series weapons.
Hopefully, this guide has helped you identify where to get all the Monster Hunter World Commendations you need. As always, happy hunting!
