If you’re looking for fun new challenges and special gear to collect in Monster Hunter: World, then Event Quests are your ticket… or rather, they get you tickets (sometimes) that you can use for crafting. Either way, here’s your selection for this week:

The Proving – hunt an Anjanath to get tickets used for crafting the Aloy armor set and Aloy’s Bow.

Coral Waltz – hunt a Tzitzi-Ya-Ku, a Paolumu, a Pink Rathian, and a Legiana in the Coral Highlands, with a good chance of any of these monsters being a crown size.

Wiggle Me This – deliver 10 Wigglers to get tickets used for crafting the Wiggler Head .

Flesh Cleaved to Bone – hunt a Radobaan and an Odogaron in the Special Arena

Challenge Quest 1: Expert – hunt a Tempered Uragaan and a Tempered Bazelgeuse. This quest is available at the Arena Counter in the Gathering Hub and your fastest time will be uploaded to the global leaderboards.

Event Quests and Challenge Quests refresh every Thursday at 4pm PT / Friday at 12am GMT, so make sure to log into Monster Hunter: World every week and follow @MonsterHunter to stay up to date on the latest selection of quests.

Patrick Kulikowski: I’ve got not one, but TWO auditory glories to share with you fine folks in this week’s recap.

Let’s kick things off with something quite unexpected: an entire live bass guitar “bassrun” of Takashi Tateishi’s Mega Man 2 soundtrack… with accompanying gameplay to boot! Travis Morgan’s bass skills not only make me wish I was the least bit competent in that department, but they also call to mind just how important bass is to the game’s soundtrack.

And if the above video made you nostalgic, prepare your earbuds for this gorgeous 1-hour plus video filled with newly arranged renditions of Yuko Takehara’s classic Breath of Fire II soundtrack. The music here was redone by Troupe Gammage (Mutant Mudds composer) and Audistory Music , with an incredibly adorable animation by SmallBu Studio (of “Baman Piderman” fame) and Eiffel Art .

For the uninitiated, the animation features BoFII protagonist Ryu conducting an 8-piece orchestra comprised of his fellow heroic companions Bow, Katt, Nina, Rand, Sten, Jean, Spar, and Bleu. You have to admire Rand’s nervousness and determination as he hits that tiny triangle. It perfectly captures Rand’s surprisingly soft interior.
