Guiding Lands Regional Monster List Monster Hunter World

The Guiding Lands work differently than other environments in Monster Hunter World in that the overall location is made of various sub-regions which resemble some of the standalone regions found earlier in the game. For example, players can walk from the Forest region to the Wildspire region seamlessly while exploring the Guiding Lands. Each region features its own unique resources and monsters, with some being locked behind a leveling system. For example, if players want to hunt a Ruiner Nergigante they must level the Forest region of the Guiding Lands to at least level 5. This is accomplished by hunting monsters, collecting tracks, breaking monster parts, and generally performing tasks in that region.

Below are four charts that detail which monsters will spawn at each level of each region in the Guiding Lands. If you want to hunt a specific monster, check what level it becomes available at, then level that region of the Guiding Lands appropriately. Just keep in mind that when you level one region in the Guiding Lands, another one can lose progress.

The tables below were assembled using the Monster Hunter World Wiki, as well as a handy Google Sheet from the Monster Hunter World subreddit.

Note: At Level 7 of every region, there is a chance for a Tempered Ruiner Nergigante to spawn. We don't have the percentages, but there's a chance
