How do I level up deviants?
By - SaltyPickle_Dani
You do level 1. That unlocks level 2. Et cetera. *You* have to be the quest leader for it though. Doing someone else’s level 1 won’t unlock your own level 2.
At level 10, the leveling stops until you fight the base monster in G Rank (like a G Arzuros to unlock the next level of Redhelm). That unlocks level G1. Then you do it to level it up to G5. Once you do G5 and have a HR of at least 100 (which is easy enough to reach, you’ll just have to clear the G4 Urgent to unlock the HR cap), the final level unlocks: EX. The EX doesn’t give its own tickets for upgrading the gear, it’s mostly just for bragging rights because it lets you transmog that Deviant’s armor and gives you a special shifting armor pigment.
Fashion hunting is the best kind of hunting though. Anyway glad I found this 'cause I didn't know that the host has to post the quest in an online session for it to count.
Yeah that extends to all unlocks related to Deviants. As crummy as it is, it has to be *your* EX or you don’t get the clear credit or any of the bling that comes with it. You just get the free jumbo crown for your log and any quest rewards it gives out.
I'm admittedly hesitant to solo the Deviants despite doing everything story related and Ahtal-ka without friends. But I really want the transmog parts of Drilltusk Tetsu and EF Gammoth in particular lol.
Complete the level 1 quest and it unlocks level 2, complete level 2 and unlock 3, so on so forth. During the transition from high rank (level 10) to G Rank (level 11/G1), you'll have to beat the g rank version of the base monster before you can hunt the G Rank version of their deviant
Note that in order to get credit for completing the quest, you have to be the one who posted it if you're playing multiplayer.
