List of Contents
Wyvern Riding is a newly introduced mechanic in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR). This allows you to ride any large monster and fight for you!
|1||Put the monster in a Mountable State using Silkbind and Wirebug Attacks.|
|2||Mount by pressing A or by attacking the monster.|
|3||If there is a monster nearby, attack the monster and fill the Wyvern Riding Gauge to execute a Mounted Punisher!|
|4||Launch monsters into walls or obstacles using the Y button. Don't forget that you can do this multiple times by pressing B after each launch!|
|5||After launching the monster to a wall / obstacle, the monster will go down and will be open for free hits!|
To ride monsters, you have to put them in a mountable state first. This can be accomplished in several ways: using Silkbind and Wirebug Attacks consistently, using Puppet Spiders, or monsters attacking each other!
Take note, Wyvern Riding replaces the traditional mounting we know from the past games so consider these methods if you want to ride these monsters!
Using Silkbind Attacks and Wirebug Aerial consistently against a monster gives you a high chance of putting it in a mountable state. When your wirebugs are fully charged, always try to execute these unique moves!
Puppet Spiders are a type of Endemic Life that puts monsters in a mountable state instantly! Like the usual Endemic Life, they can be picked up around the map and will be stored like an item.
To use the Puppet Spiders, highlight it on the Item Bar and Press Y to use.
A monster attacking another monster will eventually wear it down to its mountable state! This could happen by either attacking another monster while riding on one or monsters wearing themselves out in a turf war.
Be alert for when you can ride. Why watch when you can fight!
When you have successfully mounted the monster, know how to ride it! Here are all the things you need to know!
Emergency Evade can be used when you are attacking or being hit.
While riding a monster, use the Left Analog Stick while holding the R Button. You can take the monster anywhere on the map so ride to your heart's content!
Execute a light attack by pressing the X Button.
Execute a strong attack by pressing the A Button. The strong attack is slower than a light attack but packs more punch. It is advisable to use this only when there is a huge attack window!
You can evade by pressing the B Button. You can execute an Emergency Evade when your monster is attacking or being hit at the cost of your Wirebug gauge.
You can launch monsters onto a wall, an obstacle, or another monster by pressing the Y Button. This costs one Wirebug per hit so this can be chained multiple times! This will cause you to dismount so keep this in mind!
Also, launching the monster you are currently riding onto another monster will cause that monster to enter its mountable state!
Filling up the Wyvern Riding Gauge enables you to execute the Mounted Punisher. This causes the monster to topple down and be open for attacks!
To fill up the Wyvern Riding Gauge, attack other monsters or evade before you get hit.
The Riding Timer shows you how long you can ride a certain monster. Time replenishes whenever you land an attack and depletes when you are hit. You can't ride monsters forever!

I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?
I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
