You don’t want to know how many weeks I spent staring at the Elder Melder and wondering how I was supposed to craft the gems on that list. Sure, I could have done what you’re doing and hit up Google, but I wanted to see if I could go it alone. That didn’t work out too well for me, and it was only after my good buddy, Prophet on Fire, explained the finer points of melding to me that I was on the path Gold Wyverian Print goodness.
Gold Wyverian Print – Limited Bounties
The most common way to get a Gold Wyverian Print is to complete the Limited Bounties that you can monitor at the Resource Center in Astera. One of the Limited Bounties will require you complete the others, and the reward for that will be the Gold Wyverian Print. This can then be traded at the Elder Melder to craft gems, which sure beats farming monsters for them.
Gold Wyverian Print – Critical Bounties
Most players will want more than one Gold Wyverian Print each week, though, and there are a couple ways to earn them. The first is to complete the Piscine Researcher Bounties, and the second is to knock off the Endemic Life Researcher Bounties. These bounties can be obtained by looking out for the relevant NPCs as you choose a destination for an expedition. If they are currently in that location, it will show up on the left side of your screen before you launch the expedition.
You’ve probably already spoken to both the Endemic Life Researcher and the Piscine Researcher, so you may have completed some of their bounties already. These can also be tracked at the Resource Center by navigating to the Critical Bounties tab. Compare that list with the lists below to determine which bounties you need to complete to complete the list.
Endemic Life Researcher Quests
- Ancient Forest: Research Help – Woodland Pteryx Capture
- Wildspire Waste: Research Help – Carrier Ant Capture
- Coral Highlands: Research Help – Wiggler Capture
- Rotten Vale: Research Help – Scavantula Capture
- Elder’s Recess: Research Help – Bomb Beetle Capture
- Research Help – Phantom Bird
Piscine Researcher Quests
- Ancient Forest: Research Help – Pink Paraxus Capture
- Wildspire Waste: Research Help – Sushfish Capture
- Coral Highlands: Research Help – Gunpowderfish Capture
- Rotten Vale: Research Help – Goldenfish Capture
- Elder’s Recess: Research Help – Platinumfish Capture
- Research Help – Capture the Ancient
Upon completing all five Critical Bounties for the Endemic Life Researcher and Piscine Researcher, you will need to locate each NPC and speak to them again. They could be in any location, so choose an expedition and scan the summary of each location to find out where they’re hiding. Visiting each one will land you their final quests, Capture the Ancient and Phantom Bird.
Once you complete those two quests, you’ll need to track down the NPC that gave it to you one more time. Again, this is either the Endemic Researcher or Piscine Researcher. Once you locate them and speak to them, they’ll hand you that Gold Wyverian Print you were looking for.
Unfortunately, those are the only three ways that we know when it comes to getting a Gold Wyverian Print. Make sure you keep tabs on the Limited Bounties, knocking them off each week to get more. If you run out of options, though, consider our Monster Hunter: World guide-hub to help you earn the gems that you so desperately seek.
