Upgrade Material Types: Best Upgrade Material to Use.png

This is a guide to Upgrade Materials in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). Read on to learn about Upgrade Materials and how to plan out which upgrade materials to use!

What is Upgrade Material Types?

Material Groups for Upgrading Weapons

Material Types are groups of Materials based on a specific Monster or Tree which are used as a requirement when upgrading weapons from the blacksmith. You'll be able to use any Item within the Material Type to fulfill the requirements, with each Item being worth a specific number of points toward the requirement.

If you don't have enough Materials within that Material Type, you won't be able to get enough points for the upgrade, so make sure to farm a lot of items to upgrade your weapons!

Spend Materials of Your Choice

Unlike standard crafting requirements which limit the player to specifically required items, the Material Type system allows players to use items of their choice, as long as they fall within the group.

A 10-point Ore requirement, for example, will need 10 Iron Ores, as an Iron Ore's value is one point. On the other hand, a player could also spend 6 Iron Ores and 2 Earth Crystals, for two points each. As long as you reach the required points by consuming the materials you wish to use, you'll be able to get a new weapon for your future hunts!

Lower-Quality Materials Give Fewer Points

Cheap or less rare materials will yield fewer points. However, since they are reliable and easy to get, they are still worth using when upgrading weapons!

Large Monsters Require Materials of Their Own Type

More likely than not, each monster weapon tree will need that specific large monster's parts when upgrading the weapon. Make sure to defeat the monster that you want the material from to complete your armor and weapon sets!

Best Upgrade Material to Use

Use Less Rare Materials First

Despite yielding fewer points, we suggest using less rare materials first. They are easier to get and you'll be able to get more of them easier than let's say, spending a monster plate to instantly upgrade a weapon then regretting it later because you'll need the plate again later.

Plan Out Your Upgrades in Advance

knowing your weapon's upgrade path is extremely helpful since you'll be able to plan out the missions you'll take to get those upgrade materials! Need a herbivore? Hunt some Kelbis while on your route to the target!
