Easy “A Living Fossil” trophy (Monster Hunter World Trophies)
To get the “A Living Fossil” trophy, you must capture a “Petricanths”. It is a rare glowing fish. You must use the fishing rod to catch it. It can spawn in the bright blue waters on Rotten Vale map. It can spawn during daytime and on any rank/difficulty. It can be found at the following location and looks like this. It is an extremely rare spawn and will not show up on each visit. It is recommended to fast travel to the Ancient Forest map and return if it does not spawn. It works well to fast travel to the Ancient Forest since the creature needed for trophy “Snuggles For All” spawns there — so you can try your luck with different trophy at the same time. Additionally, the creature needed for “Bristles For All” trophy spawns in the same location as the Petricanths fish. That other creature will spawn on the back of the nearby mosswine. So go to the mosswine first before it walks away, and then check for the Petricanths fish. If it is not there, fast travel to the Ancient Forest to look for the third creature and come back. It can take hours of fast traveling to find the fish. Note: Fast traveling back to camp does not make fishes/animals respawn. You must travel to a completely different map to reset everything.
Easy “Angling For A Bite” trophy (Monster Hunter World Trophies)
You will automatically have a fishing rod in your inventory after you complete the prologue (when you reach Astera for the first time and get your weapons). Go on an expedition (for example, in the Ancient Forest), and find a small lake or go to the ocean. Select the fishing rod and aim it at the water. As soon as a fish bites (food starts moving), immediately reel in the fish. An easy fishing spot is on the Ancient Forest map, Southwest Camp (1). Just a little east of the camp you can see a pool of water on the map.
Easy “Bristles For All” trophy (Monster Hunter World Trophies)
To get the “Bristles For All” trophy, you must catch the Bristly Crake, which is a tiny black bird. It rides on the back of Mosswines in Rotten Vale only. It can spawn at any time of day and on any rank. It can take hours to find the bird, as it is ultra rare. There are two locations you can check in one visit. See the exact locations and what the creature looks like in the video below. Check them both in one visit and if the creature is not in either spot, fast travel to another map (such as Astera or Wildspire Waste) and return. You have to travel to another map for it to reset. Fast traveling between camps in Rotten Vale will not reset it. Note: Leave your Palico behind (talk to your cat at camp and tell it to stay) and equip the Ghillie Mantle. This way you will not scare off the rare bird. If your Palico is with you, it could scare the bird. The Ghillie Mantle renders you invisible to animals so they will not even know you are there. Get close and use the capture net to capture it.
Easy “Mmm, So Tasty!” trophy (Monster Hunter World Trophies)
To get the “Mmm, So Tasty!” trophy, you need to use the BBQ Spit while on a quest or during an expedition. It is a fixed item in your inventory that you will always have from the start of the game. You also need some raw meat to cook, which you can get from slaying small monsters and looting them. Activate the BBQ Spit from the item wheel. Then, let the steak cook for 2.5 rotations (until the last second before it gets burned). It may take a few tries to get the timing down. If it turns black, you have let it cook for too long. If it is a rare steak, it did not cook for long enough. Keep trying until it is called a “Well-done Steak”.
Easy “Rainbow Bright” trophy
To get the “Rainbow Bright” trophy, you must capture a “Prism Hercudrome” with the capture net. This is a small bug sitting on some trees in the game. It only spawns at dusk and dawn. The sun icon in the top left corner will start blinking when the sun goes up or down. That is when this rare bug will spawn in specific locations. You can find it in the following location. It can appear in the following area. It is available on the low and high rank difficulty. The capture net is automatically in your inventory from the beginning of the game. Equip it and shoot it at the creature to capture it alive. You can then use it as a pet in your room in Astera.
Easy “Snuggles For All” trophy
To get the “Snuggles For All” trophy, you must catch the Downy Crake, which is a tiny white bird. It only spawns on the backs of Aptonoths in the Ancient Forest and on the backs of Apceros in Wildspire Desert (friendly dinosaur monsters). It can spawn at any time of day and on any rank. To catch it, you have to be wearing the Ghillie Mantle. Otherwise, the bird will fly away and you will not be able to catch it. The Ghillie Mantle is unlocked automatically during the story. You can equip it at the item box in Astera or at any camp. It is recommended that you fast travel between the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Desert. At the first camp of each area are the required monsters that can spawn the bird on their back. If it is not there, immediately fast travel to the other map and keep doing this over and over again. It can take hours to find the birds, as they are ultra rare (1% spawn chance at best). With the Ghillie Mantle, they cannot see you. Run up to the dinosaurs and use the capture net to catch one of the birds off the dinosaur’s back. You can also hear a chirping sound when the birds are nearby.
