Monster Hunter World: What are Tempered Monsters? Tempered Investigations explained
Tempered Monsters are some of the most fearsome foes that Monster Hunter World has to offer, and form an integral part of the end game experience.
Essentially, Tempered Monsters are buffed versions of large monsters that hit much harder than their regular counterparts. They don’t have any more health than normal monsters, but their added punch really ups the challenge.
We’ve embedded a video from Arekkz below that explains everything you need to know.
Tempered Monsters are divided into three categories: ones you can take on at Hunter Ranks 13-29, Hunter Ranks 30-49, and then Hunter Rank 50+.
When you’re going about your regular hunts, you can come across tracks and traces of Tempered Monsters which are marked in blue by your Scoutflies. Collect them, and you’ll eventually unlock a tempered Investigation.
We’re putting together a list of every large monster in Monster Hunter World along with their weaknesses and drops, so give it a look if you need some help taking things down.
We’ve also put together strategies for fighting some of the early game bosses, like Anjanath, Diablos and Nergigante.

How to Unlock Tempered Monsters

Collect enough of these tracks, and you will unlock an investigation for a Tempered monster at the Resource Center. Breaking parts and hunting tempered monsters will also proc chances to unlock more investigations as well.
There is one Assigned Quest against two Tempered Bazelgeuse unlocked at HR 29, and another Assigned Quest against a Tempered Kirin unlocked at HR 49. Once completed, you will then unlock and be able to join quests against Tempered Elder Dragons.
Each Tempered monster is allocated into Threat Level as seen here:

How to Find Tempered Monster Tracks
Some tempered monster tracks will always spawn in certain places, however, only half can spawn at a time. There are simple paths to follow in the Wildspire Waste to collect Threat Level 1 tracks, and a path to follow in the Coral Highlands for Threat Level 2.
Here's a video explaining the paths to follow for Threat Level 1 Tracks provided by Orsus Gaming:
Here's the map provided by Orsus Gaming to find Threat Level 1 Tracks:
Basically, head to the first red spot marked on the map. If it's there, continue along the red path. If that Tempered Rathian track isn't there, go north to the blue track, and follow that path instead.
Here's a final video by Orsus Gaming explaining the same method, but for Threat Level 2 monsters in the Coral Highlands:
How to Find Tempered Elder Dragon Tracks
Unlocking tempered elder dragon investigations is similar to unlocking other monsters, but these are more rare.
The easiest way to unlock many of these at a time is by taking advantage of your first assigned quest against a Tempered Kirin, unlocked at HR 49.
Because Kirin are docile, you can simply stalk the Kirin around the map and pick up the tempered tracks it leaves behind. These will provide you randomly with investigations for a random Elder Dragon, which includes:
Tempered Elder Dragon tracks will also spawn in set places around the different Locations as well, but these are much less numerous than Threat Level 1 and Threat Level 2 tempered monster tracks. On average you'll find one tempered elder dragon track each time you go to a map.
You'll also unlock tempered elder dragon investigations when fighting tempered elder dragons. Each time you break a part, or pick up a track left behind by the monster you're hunting, you'll have a chance to unlock a new tempered investigation.
What about the arch tempered?
Can I skip and go directly to arch tempered?
Also, what are the augments?
Are just extra jawel slots?
And how do I level up?
I want the rocksteady mantle..
By killing the multiple times the elder dragons for completing my sets I didn't level up one bit.
Arch Tempered monsters are fought through Event quests only, at the moment. High Rank specific quests for now, they tend to have a fairly badass name and the monster itself will have an orange outline on their symbol.
Levelling up is locked behind certain story assignment quests, until you complete them you will be capped. You can unlock the Rocksteady Mantle without uncapping yourself though, you just need to complete an Optional quest chain until you unlock the quest for it.
