The Great Wirebug North of Area 9 is Essential

Rare Endemic Life Location



The Monksnail is a rare endemic life that can be found in the Frost Islands. To be able to document this creature, you need to climb the top mast of the shipwreck in the southeast. A large roar will then sound out followed by the Monksnail appearing a few seconds later.

Frost Islands Unique Features

Dragon Nest of Old

Dragon Nest of Old.jpg

The Frost Islands is was said to be a nesting ground for Dragons. Many heroes would travel to these lands in an attempt to slay the beasts but to no avail. What is left of these times are but remnants of battle. Capsized ships that are forever trapped in ice and dragon bones that are scattered throughout, forever in decay.

Wide Expanse

Wide Expanse.png

Though the harsh bitter cold is not the only enemy of the Frost Islands, for they boast empty caverns that feel like a crypt awaiting a corpse. These empty spaces are viable places to engage in fights with monsters. Be wary, however, for the stalactites might be the last things you see.

Hot Drinks Are Gone

Hot Drinks Are Gone

It was confirmed by Director Ichinose in a tweet that hot drinks are gone in Monster Hunter Rise. No more cold effects for you and your hunter!

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
      Arm1: 35, 70, 50
