This article explains abnormal status effects and elemental blights in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know more about the effects of abnormal status and blights as well as new mechanics for them introduced in Rise, read on!
List of Contents
|Blight||Effect and Solutions|
Damage over time
Slow stamina recovery
More susceptible to stuns
Slow Wirebug gauge recovery
Weapon element and status effects are nullified
All elemental blights can be cured by using Nullberries so when fighting a monster with elements, always make sure to bring a full stack!
In case you forget to bring Nullberries, know other ways to cure blights eg. rolling thrice can extinguish fireblight!
There are also armor skills that provide resistance against certain elements. Use this method when being affected by blights is unavoidable! Take note though, this does not nullify damage - only the blight.
In Monster Hunter Rise, monsters can be afflicted by elemental blights so using elemental weapons and endemic life is very important!
To easily induce blights to monsters, the following endemic life is scattered in the battlefield:
|Induces fireblight to the monster|
|Induces waterblight to the monster|
|Induces thunderblight to the monster|
|Induces iceblight to the monster|
While riding monsters using Wyvern Riding, some moves allow you to induce elemental blights to another monster eg. Mizutsune's water breath attack can induce waterblight!
|Status||Effect and Solutions|
Damage over time
Unable to move for a short while
Unable to move for a short while
Gradually puts you to sleep; damage received is increased
Lowers your defense stats making you take more damage
Lowers your elemental resistance making you more susceptible to elemental blights
Prevents you from using health and stamina recovery items
Bubbles accumulate and makes movement harder
Reduces movement speed when caught
Always know which abnormal status effect a monster can give your hunter. Knowing this allows you to prepare the necessary cures before the hunt!
Since stun and paralysis inherently do not have cures, it is suggested to incorporate the resist skills into your armor builds! Take note however that this is only recommended for beginners because veterans can usually evade their way out of these attacks.
*The information is based on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.
If your build focuses on inflicting abnormal status effects, use a status weapon that has fast multi-hits like the Dual Blades and Sword and Shield. This allows you to accumulate status onto a monster more quickly!
Like elemental bights, some moves while riding a monster induces status eg. Rathian's somersault attack can inflict poison onto an opposing monster!
There is certain endemic life like the Poisontoad and items like Tinged Meat that induces status effects!
