Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Monsters, Carves and Item Drops Guide


Monster Hunter 3 brings you more intimidating creatures to hunt down and collect more loot to make your character meaner than ever. Upgrading your character with better equipment is something that is not only necessary to progress in the game, but also widely the most loved feature.

After all, who doesn’t love watching their character suited from head to toe in ancient dragon armor while wielding bestial weapons.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Monsters, Carves and Item Drops

In this guide we’ll go through the numerous monsters that inhabit the 12 maps of the MH3 world, and look at the items they give. Note that monsters drop items according to your rank. Each rank has various items that have a certain percentage of dropping. Obviously, the item with the lesser percentage is the rarer one.

These items are invaluable as they serve as the constituents in creating all sorts of equipment, be it weapons or armor.

It is also important to note that you don’t obtain items from killing a monster. You have a certain amount of limited time to ‘carve the body’ of the monster after slaying it, which will extract items. Some monsters can be carved multiple times. In addition, large monsters tend to have body carves as well as ‘tail carves’.

There are also other item sources, such as ‘tears’, which are obtained after a monster is damaged or disabled in a specific manner (different for every monster). In addition, large monsters also have breakable parts that can grant you items as well.

We’ve compiled a huge list of these items for every monster, the chance of obtaining the item (in percentage), and how you would obtain it (body carving, tail carving, tear, etc.).

So, starting with the Small Monsters:

Altaroth

Altaroths are bug-like monsters. The unique thing about this creature is that its belly glows a different color, depending on what it’s eating. The type of color also determines the Tears you acquire from it.

      Just lol at the great jaggi description, that’s the easiest large monster in the game.. Like, almost no strategy needed really, just avoid its side ram attack and don’t worry about anything else it does, just hit it constantly til it dies.
