Capcom has done an incredible job of supporting Monster Hunter: World since its release in January 2018.

And now, there’s even more coming with updates 11.00 and 11.01. These two patches will go live tomorrow, October 10, 2019, adding a new deadly monster, another new region, and lots of bug fixes.

Below, you can check out the expansions third developer diary, featuring Iceborne’s producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, Executive Director and Art Director Kaname Fujioka, and Director Daisuke Ichihara. In it, they take a deep dive into the expansion’s latest update.

Adjustments have been made to make the Guiding Lands easier to play.
Future updates will feature more adjustments to make it easier to play.

  • Adjustment 1: Region Level change fluctuation adjusted
    • In the Guiding Lands, you can obtain different materials at each level, so adjustments have been made to how levels increase/decrease to make it easier to explore.
      • Region Level 1 – 2: No changes
      • Region Level 3 – 6: Fluctuates at the same rate as region level 2 did before the update
      • Region Level 7: Fluctuates at the same rate as region level 3 did before the update
  • Adjustment 2: Adjusted the drop rate of special tracks obtained from monsters in the Guiding Lands

      They are also now guaranteed upon capturing a monster, or carving from the monster’s body or broken part.
  • Adjustment 3: Region levels can now be fixed
    • Settings have been added so that region levels will not fluctuate, and you can explore the Guiding Lands freely with fixed levels.Fixed region levels are applied per player even during multiplayer.If you set region levels to fixed, your own region levels will not fluctuate whether you’re the quest leader or just joining another player’s quest.
      • You can fix region levels at the quest board when you select the Guiding Lands.
Adjustment 4: Expedition Objective added to fixed region play
  • Added a “Fixed Region” parameter that can be set when departing to the Guiding Lands, or used as search criteria.
    Use this setting when you want to let players know you’re exploring with fixed levels, or if you want to search for expeditions using fixed levels.

    • For instructions how to fix region levels, please see Adjustment 3.
    • Adjustment 5: Locating monsters in the Guiding Lands will no longer affect region level
      • The design of the Guiding Lands has been changed, as region level changing upon discovering a monster in the locale had an unintended effect.
