If you’re hunting for the rare endemic life in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, you can make your job easier with the help of a special food skill called Felynze Zoomaster. All you have to do is find a few canteen ingredients.
Since you’re going to need all the help you can get, Felynze Zoomaster raises the spawn rate of rare endemic life. Activating the skill takes six unique ingredients you’ll have to farm for. Three of them are rare themselves.
Below, we will tell you everything you need to do to activate the Felynze Zoomaster skill in Iceborne. We also include tips on Frozen Foliage farming, including Moonlight Icebloom, Snowpeak Icebloom, and Petalcryst.
The Six Ingredients for Felyne Zoomaster
You’ll get half of what you need by completing the Grammeowster Chef’s questline. The other half of the ingredients are rare and semi-rare drops from Frozen Foliage in the Hoarfrost Reach, one of which is only available when Frozen Foliage is flourishing.
The ingredients and their associated quests and locations are as follows:
- Glacial Vodka and Toasting Tequila: The Nighty Night Nightshade quest (2nd in the Grammeowster Chef questline)
- Simmering Spirit: Simmer and Slice quest (4th and final quest in the Grammeowster Chef questline)
- Crystal Quaff: Deliver Petalcryst rare plantlife (only available in Hoarfrost Reach during flourishing Frozen Foliage)
- Snowmelt Snifter: Deliver Moonlight Icebloom (from Frozen Foliage)
- Frostpeak Fizz: Deliver Snowpeak Icebloom (from Frozen Foliage)
You may have noticed that the 1st and 3rd quests aren’t required for the ingredients you need. That doesn’t mean you can skip them. You have to do all four quests to get your hands on these special canteen ingredients.
The first quest is Trapping the Tree Trasher, and the third is a delivery quest of Twisted Stouthorn, which you receive from breaking a Diablos’ horns and either carving or capturing it.
Farming Frozen Foliage
Your best bet for getting all the canteen ingredients you need in the Hoarfrost Reach is going on an expedition while Frozen Foliage is flourishing. Time of day and weather conditions don’t matter.
Your primary farming zones will be Area 7 and Area 15, where a total of nine patches of foliage grow. So long as they’re flourishing, you’ll only need to wait about five minutes or so between gathering.
Farming Moonlight and Snowpeak Icebloom
Neither of these materials will take you too long to farm. You’ll be able to collect either ingredient from any Frozen Foliage you come across.
Moonlight Icebloom is relatively common, and you’re liable to get your hands on it within your first few gathers. Snowpeak Icebloom will take you more time. It’s a rare gather, but you’ll know you’ve got it when your hunter digs excitedly twice and raises their arm high.
You’ll only need one instance of both plants. Once you have them, it’s time to move onto the tough part.
Where to Find Petalcryst
The final ingredient on your list only appears during flourishing Frozen Foliage, and only in a single small cave in Area 2.
I only had luck finding petalcryst on the lower levels, and there’s still a chance you might not get it. Thankfully, the plants here respawn at the same rate as their non-cavebound counterparts.
Once you’ve managed to nab a sprig of petalcryst, you should have every ingredient you need to activate Felyne Zoomaster. Now go out and get those pets!
