Monster Hunter World Update Patch Fixes Kulve Taroth Bug
The latest patch for the wildly popular RPG experience Monster Hunter World is now live and brings with it a critical fix to the recently added Kulve Taroth quest line.
A new monster, Kulve Taroth, was added to Monster Hunter: World last week, and the requirements to begin the quest are pretty simple. As usual, the quest line first tasks hunters with searching for traces of the monster. They then need to report to the Admiral back in Astera. However, speaking to the Admiral in the field when participating in another player’s instance would cause the quest line to not progress in the correct manner. The patch addresses this bug. Of course, those who encountered the issue could easily remedy the problem by visiting the Admiral in Astera, as the quest suggests.

Kulve Taroth Quest Line:
- Fixed a bug where the Kulve Taroth Siege quest line would not progress correctly under certain conditions (specifically: if you speak to the Admiral out in the field when participating in another player’s instance of the “A Wound and a Thirst” or similar quests, after having collected Kulve Taroth traces but BEFORE having spoken to him separately in Astera). Players who have encountered this bug already can return to Astera and speak with the Admiral, triggering the council scene, after which the Kulve Taroth Siege will become available.
- Fixed a bug where the great sword Wyvern Ignition “Impact” saw its fire elemental attack value unintentionally reduced to 240. The value has been reset to 510. The armor skill “Free Element/Ammo Up” is still a requirement for unlocking the fire elemental attack of this weapon.
- Fixed some bugs in the data collection for the statistical summaries given to you by speaking to the First Wyverian (weapon usage, number of monsters slain, etc.). Data will be progressively reset starting on April 26. For the duration, the First Wyverian will not give out any statistical information, but this should not affect gameplay in any other way. Please note that the statistical data may be low in accuracy for a short time after the process has finished.
Players can check out the full patch notes, as well as more length explanations of each issue, on the game’s official website.
Monster Hunter: World was released on PS4 and Xbox One in January, and will launch for the PC later this year. The game was a massive success at launch, becoming Capcom’s fastest-selling title in history and attracting rave reviews.
