Herbivore Eggs in Monster Hunter World have multiple uses and are required for a few side quests. Unlike many items in the game, you can’t find an Herbivore Egg from just killing monsters. Instead, you’ll have to explore your environment and seek them out to get your hands on them. The egg is especially important for the quest “Gettin’ Yolked in the Waste,” which is given to you by the Meowscular Chef. Below we tell you where in Monster Hunter World you can find the eggs and what you can do with them once you’ve got them.
How to Find Herbivore Eggs Location in Monster Hunter World
You’ll notice as you play Monster Hunter World that some of the items in the environment can be harvested. While many useful items come from carving beasts, you’ll want to keep an eye out during your travels for plants and other things you can pick up and add to your inventory.
One of these items is the Herbivore Egg. To find Herbivore Eggs, you need to find some Herbivores, specifically some in the Wildspire Waste. If you head to area 4 of the wastes you’ll find an egg in a nest in the southern-most part of the region. Once you’re carrying an Herbivore Egg, you’ll need to be very careful. If you’re attacked by any monster, especially the smaller ones that will be aggroed now that you have the egg, it will shatter and you’ll be splattered in yolk.
How to deliver the Herbivore Eggs for the Gettin’ Yolked in the Waste quest in Monster Hunter World
Thankfully, you can still use the Ghillie Mantle while carrying the egg. This should assist in stealthing past monsters.You have to carry two Herbivore Eggs back to the campsite to complete “Gettin’ Yolked in the Waste.” The hardest part is finding the eggs. Once you’ve found the source, you can try as many times as you’d like to complete the quest.
After you complete the quest, you can turn Herbivore Eggs in for research points at a supply box. This helps you gain levels toward the monster from whose nest you took the eggs.
