Monster Hunter: World - Contract: Woodland Spirit Extended By a Week

By Rebecca Smith, 27 days ago
The second part of the Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crossover began on February 15th. The problem is that some players have been struggling to complete the challenging battle against the Ancient Leshen because of bugs within the game. This week's patch has now fixed those bugs, and as a result, the duration of the "Contract: Woodland Spirit" quest has been extended by a week.

The full patch notes can be seen below:

Balance Tweaks & Bug Fixes

  • During the last phase of the Ancient Leshen fight in the quest Contract: Woodland Spirit, balance tweaks have been made to the fight, such as decreasing the Ancient Leshen's warp frequency and increasing the effectiveness of Igni Sign, slinger shots, etc., to make it easier to weaken the monster.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused the Leshen and Ancient Leshen to go into its Igni damage reaction instead of its weakened state damage reaction when both damage reactions would trigger at the same time due to being attacked by Igni.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused parts of a player's custom shoutouts to appear as asterisks (*) on other players' screens after the Ver. 6.00 update (Ver. 6.0.0.0 on Xbox One).
The update is available now and has a download size of 79MB. The "Contract: Woodland Spirit" quest will now be available until 3:59pm PT / 11:59pm GMT on Thursday, March 7th.
