Jet Stream Event

From MHWiki

The Jet Stream Event is an event that takes place in the Floating Islands location.

Overview

During the event time, Jet Stream mechanics are in effect:

  • The Stream level is between 0 - 100.
When the effect activates, it generates a journal entry:
Capturing a XXX Warden/Paragon channeled their control of the Jet Steam into my airship's sails, extending my Jet Stream Bonus by 25 hunts!
  • Hunting on a Low or High Altitude Island decrease the stream level by 1 per hunt
  • When the stream level is greater than 0, the Hunter receives boosts:
  • +1 Speed on Low and High Altitude Islands
  • Catching a Sky Warden or Sky Paragon generates additional Storm Cell. The number of Cells gained depends on the Stream Strength:
  • Low Strength (stream level between 1 - 24): 2 Storm Cells
  • Medium Strength (stream level between 25 - 49): 4 Storm Cells
  • High Strength (stream level between 50 - 100): 8 Storm Cells
When the effect activates, it generates a journal entry:
Catching this mouse while within a XXX Strength Jet Stream also allowed me to find:
• XXX Storm Cells
