Zorah Magdaros Topics:

Zorah Magdaros is an Elder Dragon first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. This elder dragon rises from the earth like a volcano with it's migration a mystery to the Research Commission. It's materials can be used to craft the Zorah Armor Set.


Zorah Magdaros is a colossal Elder Dragon covered in a rocky hide. It has turtlelike characteristics, bearing a mountainous shell on its back that it can retreat under while walking on all fours, as well as a beaked mouth. Fire and smoke and lava spew from the creature's shell, making it seem like a walking volcano.

Behavior and Abilities

Zorah Magdaros cannot be killed, just repelled. Its head and chest can be wounded by physical attacks. The monster is also immune to all status effects. During the first phase of the fight, mining spots appears on its back. These contain uncommon and rare ores and rarely Zorah Magdaros parts. Similar to Xeno'jiiva, the optional quest to fight Zorah Magdaros appears randomly after completing a quest or returning from expedition. It will only stay for a period of two quests before disappearing again. Pay close attention to the music and system messages to see if Zorah Magdaros has appeared. The odds of the quest appearing go up as your Hunter Rank increases. The Zorah Magdaros and Xeno'jiiva optional quests will not appear at the same time.
