Unsurprisingly the rarest items to find in Monster Hunter World (MHW), such as the warped bone and wyvern gem, are the most valuable and functional. These items allow you to craft high-level gear and armour needed to defeat the game's monsters and end game bosses.
One of these items is the MHW majestic horn, a rare item needed to level up and craft some of the game's highest level gear and armour.
The majestic horn is a material used to help level up and improve various armour and weapon pieces. The item is tough to find, with it found only through defeating one particular enemy type.
Likewise, the item is randomly generated, making the probability of getting the item low. Thus, the majestic horn is a challenging item to acquire, even for veteran players.
You can only obtain the MHW majestic horn by breaking the horns of high-rank Diablos.
Diablos is the apex creature of the Wildspire Waste, an area you unlock after completing the first section of the Monster Hunter World campaign. Diablos is a mighty monster who can bury underground and attack at speed, making the creature a formidable opponent.

Nevertheless, the monster is susceptible to sound and can be weakened using items that emit loud sounds, such as screamer pods.
To obtain the majestic horn, you need to defeat and break the horns of a high-rank Diablos, which has more health than regular Diablos and is considerably more powerful.
To break the high-rank Diablos horns, you need to equip a heavy class or have a teammate with a heavy weapon such as a hammer. The Diablos head is susceptible to heavy weapon attacks, making the horns much easier to break when you have a heavy weapon equipped.
The probability of the item dropping from breaking both horns of high-rank Diablos are 65%. Similarly, if you defeat a high-rank Diablos through a gold investigation, the probability of a Monster Hunter World majestic horn dropping are 14% and 18% through a silver investigation.
Several different quests reward you with the item. Firstly, there is a 6% probability of getting the item through completing the optional quest RRRRRumble in the Waste, which pits you against Diablos and black Diablos.
Finally, the majestic horns have an 8% chance of dropping if you defeat multiple Diablos in the quest This is How Revolts start.
The Monster Hunter World majestic horn is used to upgrade your weapons, armour and charms. The item is needed to forge high-level weapons such as the Kadachi Striker + gunlance and the Kadachi Lion II heavy bowgun. Likewise, the majestic horns can forge lower-level weapons such as the Diablos Clubs I and the Diablos Coilbender.
