Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - monksnail

Frost Islands Unique Features

Dragon Nest of Old

Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - Dragon Nest of Old

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

Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - Wide Expanse

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

Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - 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!
