This is a guide to which Dango you should choose when going on quests in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). Here we'll list various Dango combinations that we find the most useful for different situations.

Best Dango Combinations

Defensive - Low Rank

Dango Effect Activation Rate
Bestnut Sometimes decreases damage taken. 85%
Medicinal Slightly increases health recovery from items. 65%
Balancing Prevents you from getting knocked on your butt. 55%


Your options for defensive Dango will be a bit limited until you rank up a few times, but once you have access to Bestnut you should be alright. Balancing isn't quite a damage reducer as much as it is helpful in keeping you on your feet so you can recover. Medicinal will increase the potency of healing items, helping you use less and heal more. Alternatively, depending on which monster you're going up against, you can swap Balancing for any of the elemental Dango for extra resistance. You will likely want to use a Dango Ticket if picking Balancing due to its low activation rate.

Defensive - High Rank

Dango Effect Activation Rate
Super Bestnut Often decreases damage taken 85%
Magnaroar Prevents fainting one time when damage taken exceeds your remaining health. 60%
Spud-luck Large monster encountered on quests have an increased chance of being weaker than normal. 90%


Once you hit High Rank, you'll have more options to choose from. Bestnut can be upgraded into Super Bestnut for an even higher chance of reduced damage and Spud-luck can make monsters weaker so they deal less damage. Similar to the Low Rank option, when going up against a monster that deals elemental damage, you can swap Spud-luck for the upgraded elemental Dango to keep yourself healthy. Magnaroar you will unlock at the tail end of your Low Rank journey, keeping you from fainting a single time if you happen to get unlucky.

Offensive - Low Rank

Dango Effect Activation Rate
Peach Skill Helps your weapon retain sharpness when attacks are deflected. 90%
Sharp Speeds up weapon sharpening. 70%
Mint-iature Temporarily increases attack and defense after consumption, once. 70%


These Dango will do their best to keep you in the fight and dealing damage. Peach Skill and Sharp help out with your weapon's sharpness so your attacks will consistently do as much damage as possible while Mint-iature provides a 10 minute attack and defense buff.

Offensive - High Rank

Dango Effect Activation Rate
Dizzybloom Makes it easier to stun monsters. 50%
Blastslash Speeds up weapon sharpening.
Upgrades Large Barrel Bombs to Mega Barrel Bombs.
Mint-iature Temporarily increases attack and defense after consumption, once. 70%


This set opts for Dizzybloom that, while having a low activation rate, increases your chances of stunning monsters so you can deal damage uninterrupted. Sharp gets upgraded to Blastslash, bringing with it an extra skill for those who use Barrel Bombs.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
