Monster Hunter World Coral Crystal and Dragonite Ore: Where to Find Their Mining Locations

In Monster Hunter World you’ll need to gather Coral Crystal and Dragonite Ore to perform upgrades on several weapons. There are mining nodes that can provide these resources for you, but they’re not the easiest to find. Below we’ll tell you the best place to mine Coral Crystal and Dragonite Ore in Monster Hunter World, and how to get there.

Where to Find Dragonite Ore and Coral Crystal in Monster Hunter World

Both Coral Crystal and Dragonite Ore can be found in the Coral Highlands. You’ll have to be a little ways into the game before you gain proper access to this area, so you may have to wait a bit before you can start gathering these materials.

Once you reach the Coral Highlands in Monster Hunter World, you’ll actually have to find the mining nodes to mine the Coral Crystal and Dragonite Ore. So far we’ve discovered three nodes that you can get these materials from:

  1. North of zone 8 near the passage to zone 10.
  2. In the southern portion of zone 8
  3. In zone 11 near the shortcut from zone 10 to 11.
  4. Near node 3.

There are likely more mining nodes in the Coral Highlands than these, and you’d do good to keep an eye out on your travels.
