Recommended Farming Spot

Altaroth is present in most areas in the game, but it is recommended that you hunt them in the Flooded Forest. This is because their locations are often close to the Camp.

You can go through Area 1 → Area 14 → Area 12. If you want materials from Altaroth, we recommend that you go around this route during an exploration quest.

Tips in Farming Altaroth

Slay Altaroth Before they Burrow

Monster Hunter Rise (Altaroth) - Insect Burrow.png

Altaroth stay inside burrows, commonly found at the wall of a mountain or hill. Usually in groups of three, they only come out in timed intervals when they march in a straight line, moving from one burrow entry to the next.

Sometimes Altaroth head to beehives and collect Honey. Filling up on Honey till their abdomens glow yellow. Afterwards, they will go back to their burrows.

Look for Small Monster Outbreaks

Keep an eye for Outbreaks in the Locale Info when doing an Expedition Quest. If the locale info indicates that there's an Outbreak of Altaroth then for 10 minutes you will have a chance to farm Altaroth materials.

An outbreak would mean that respawn period for that specific monster is shortened.

Retake Case of the Creepy Crawlies Quest

For faster Low Rank Material collection of Altaroth, we recommended that you do the Village Quest aptly named Case of the Creepy Crawlies. The positions of the Altaroth and Bnahabra are displayed on the map, making them easier to locate. The Quest Rewards for this quest are Bnahabra and Altaroth materials, speeding up the farming process.

      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
