Gold Crown Count and Playtime

517 posts in this topic

360 Hrs for both World and Iceborne. I started playing the game the first week of May, finished both the first week of June. I was efficient to the max. I have every set in the game and all the best ones crafted. All the best wpns. It was a blast but the reason my play time isnt higher overall is because farming the iceborne crowns killed the enjoyment for me. 

 

- I farmed great spirit vein gems..have 4-6 builds with all armor max defense at level 20.

- I had a build for each element to make crown farming easier.

Have you got any tips on the crowns? Your pace is very quick.

 

I'm 111hrs in and have all crowns besides elders and black diablos. I was using the events which made it considerably quicker. Curious on how you hunted the elders since to my knowledge there isnt an event to speed them up.

You are correct, there is no official gold crown type event but there r some basic events that have 2-3 elders like teostra/lunastra and nergi..those events arent bad especially if u have an ssd. I did speed farms on those without an ssd sometimes and got a crown here and there. The best way though is investigations with silver/gold only rewards. 

 

A bonus tip is joining games of other players, if u see a vaal hazak quest for example and the rewards are turned off then you know theyve been fighting that dude a while lol, u join and sometimes they kill the monster like 1min after u load in and u get a free crown haha. I got 2-3 crowns that way overall through world and IB

 

The ultimate tip is gear though, if you are patient and get proper builds set up with element synergy you will have a lot of the stress removed for crowns. For example, black diablos..i would kill him in 30-45seconds max! Kjarr Ice Dual Blades with Safi and as optimal decos as i can get with the blind pod thingy(havent played in months haha)

I'm, I believe, 350 hours into Monster Hunter World, but I have also finished Iceborne and have 10 minicrowns and 12 big crowns already for Iceborne.
For the base game: at this point I'm only missing the (giant) gold crown for Kushala Daora, my boyfriend is missing Kushala too but also the (giant) gold crown for Kirin. Since we want to platinum it together, since we played together for so many hours, I'm helping him out with Kirin currently. After that we are going to go after Kushala, and then we do the 50 Arena quests together.

 

And the truth is, I'm still having so much fun with this game. After obtaining the platinum for the base game, I will go after the Iceborne Platinum too!

190 hours. Missing a few crowns that I can get in the 5-monster event quests, Black Diablos giant gold, and both Nergigante crowns. Then I have 45 arena quests to do and making a couple rare weapons. I'll probably finish around 230 hours. It would've saved a lot of time if I went directly into Iceborne and finished that campaign before crowns but I'm only MR 3 since I wanted to finish this plat ASAP for my 50th plat :(

I'm 80 hours into the game and I don't have Iceborne. I got a few crowns randomly joining missions, both crowns for Teostra, mini for Kushala Daora and giant for Vaal Hazak. 

I want to start hunting crowns for Elder Dragons first, i started yesterday using tempered investigations measuring the size and I got Kushala giant and Vaal Hazak mini after no more than 5 to 7 tries each. I just fought them the 2 times I thought thay were the right size, and they were. 

Unfortunately Lunastra today turned out to be more difficult to measure, I thought it was mini for sure, but no crown :(

I'm pretty sure you don't need the Lunastra crowns for the base game crown trophies, so I'd save yourself the hassle with that one unless you plan on buying iceborne!

I'm 240 hours in so far. Missing a few crowns that I can get in the 5-monster event quests, 45 arena quests, and making a couple rare weapons. I spent at least 30 hours just on Black Diablos crown sniping and I don't know if it's just a tinfoil hat theory but I got my giant gold crown right after crafting a max potion in base. IDK if there's more than one rng value assigned to monster sizes and going back to HQ changes one while other actions change another but I saw 200-300 Black Diablos with ~7 silver crowns before getting my gold crown. When I go back for the iceborne crowns I'll try to test it out some more.

138 hours and I "only" miss Giant Crown Bazelgeuse and Kirin, and both crowns for Nergigante and Black Diablos. I don't even want to think what a nightmare would have been without the events. 

I got lucky with mini Kirin since I joined an SOS investigation at the end of the fight and it popped 😻 I think Nergi and Balck Diablos will take a really long time, I'll use the save backup method with investigations.

Back at the beginning, when the events weren't introduced yet, I sure thought I would be stuck with this game forever^^ 140 hours is still a very good time though, even with events. I'm pretty sure you don't need Bazelgeuse as this monster was added in a mini Addon. When you are done with Kirin you'll be through the worst - Black Diablos and Nerg are no pushovers, but still go down faster than the damned unicorn ;)

Not even Bazelgeuse?? There should be an exact list in the trophy guide for base game monsters needed for the trophy. Does anyone have a complete and exact list?

 

Anyway I just got a mini Nergigante joining a random investigation with only 2 prizes, 1 silver and 1 gold. And it was past 10 minutes running, so near the end of the fight.

Definitely not for me, so unless they changed that no, no Bazelgeuse :)

Giant Kirin: Yesterday I found him very quick in a tempered investigation, but I died :( I went on with other 30 investigations but no luck, so I stopped. This morning I backed up the save file and I found him again in one of the first tempered investigations, beating him this time with the help of another guy 😁

 

Giant Nergigante: more or less the same as Kirin, meaning that I used all my investigations (66 tries) the first round with no luck. But when I backed up my save and started over I found him quickly in a tempered investigation.

 

As I noticed with Vaal Hazak and Kushala, tempered investigations grant a higher chance, despite being risky because of difficulty. I thought it would take more time, but hey, still Black Diablos out there 😬

 

Edit: Black Diablos done, mini is considerably more common than giant. But I haven't got the trophy because, in the end, Bazelgeuse is needed. And he stubbornly refuses to give me the giant crown, even with the event 😩

 

Edit 2: Got both crown trophies 151 hours + 10 hours crown sniping with save backup. But I still have a lot of trophies to do before platinum, and I'm still HR 85. Good luck to anyone going for crowns, quite some patience is needed, measure everything and don't fight if it's not the right size.
