This is a guide on how to farm Talismans in Master Rank and High Rank in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Learn how to exploit the Melding Pot to reroll Talismans, and how to farm Melding Items and Materials.
|Melding Pot Guide||How to Unlock||Talisman Farming||Free Talismans|
List of Contents
|Diablos||・Provides high MR Points
・Earn lots of Materials each time
|Gaismagorm||・Materials have a high Melding Pot point value
・Requires some memorization but can be done quickly on multiplayer
|Bazelgeuse||・Materials have a high Melding Pot point value
・Earn lots of Materials each time
|Multiplayer||・Earn Friend Vouchers as a bonus
・Faster to complete Quests than Solo
Each of the Quests above will yield a high number of Materials, each with high Melding Pot point yields. They also all share the advantage of being easy to clear after getting used to their patterns.
When raising your MR and farming for Materials to use for Talismans at the same time, the MR4 Quest Monju Mashup! is your one stop. Diablos' Materials aren't particularly high in their Melding Pot point yield, but the MR you'll get from one Quest is higher, and when using Piercing Ice Ammo, the Quest can be cleared in a clean three minutes.

Like Narwa before it, Gaismagorm is one of the most reliable monsters to farm for Materials to use for Talismans. Although the time required for the battle can have some variation depending on player skill, once you are used to the pattern it can be completed in 3-5 minutes on multiplayer or 5-10 minutes on solo.
Based on our calculations for each of Gaismagorm's Material drop rates, players can expect to yield 1300 points with no broken or cut parts, and 1900 points with all parts broken and cut. That's enough to make 6 to 9 Talismans in one go with the Anima method!
Players will typically get 6 Materials from Carves and 8 Materials as rewards after the fight. Gaismagorm also has four breakable parts – Head, Horn, and both Wingarms – as well as a cuttable Tail which can be carved twice, for a total of 20 Materials if all parts are broken and the tail is cut.
|Reward Type||Melding Pot Points|
|Target Rewards||756 points|
|No Part Total||1297.8 points|
|Right Wingarm||98 points|
|Left Wingarm||98 points|
|All Part Total||1898.7 points|
We calculated these values by taking the averages of each drop's Melding Pot point values and drop rate, multiplied by the amount of drops from that part.
Sunbreak offers the first chance to fight 2 Bazelgeuse in a single Quest. Like in the base game, its parts yield high Melding Pot points and it can be downed with Slicing Ammo or Piercing Thunder Ammo. However, Slicing Ammo has been nerfed by Weapon Changes since the base game, and can't push out the same level of damage it did before, making this route take longer than the Diablos option.
When playing online, you can receive a variety of items as bonuses from Quests. Once of these items are Friend Vouchers, which each earn 40 Melding Pot points, and have no usage outside of the Melding Pot. If you're running Quests to farm Talisman Materials, you're better off going multiplayer to get these as a bonus with as many Quests as possible.
At the end of each multiplayer hunt, you'll see a column for Friend Points below Kamura Points – when this column fills up, you'll receive a set of items as shown. One of the available sets is a pack of 12 Friend Vouchers.
Friend Points are gained by sending each other likes after the hunt and exchanging Guild Cards. Be sure to do these as much as possible on every hunt to maximize your Friend Points.
|Melding Item||Points||How to Get|
|200||Backroom Deals at the Argosy|
|100||Quest Reward from MR3+ Quests|
|50||Quest Reward from MR1-2 Quests|
In the Sunbreak DLC, players can collect Melding Pudding from the Argosy by using Backroom Deals, which can be used in place of Monster Materials and for a high number of points. A single Melding Pudding is enough to produce 1 Talisman.
To get as much Melding Pudding as possible by the time you unlock Master Rank Melding, use the Argosy as you play through Master Rank and keep Backroom Deals on for all three Buddies. Save up your Melding Items and don't spend them until you've unlocked the Anima Method for best results!
The skills from Anima (Master Rank) and Wisp of Mystery (High Rank) are entirely random, but you have a higher chance of getting better overall Talismans. If you want a specific skill for a build to help you finish the story, you can go with any melding method up to Moonbow, but any serious endgame grinding should use Anima (or Wisp of Mystery for Base Game players).
We go into more detail about the success rates of each melding method in our How to Use the Melding Pot guide!
Instead of using Monster Materials or Melding Items, Reincarnation (Master Rank) and Rebirth (High Rank) melds have you recycle 10 (20 for Rebirth) Talismans to get 3 new ones. If you have too many Talismans or you're low on Monster Materials, give Rebirth melding a shot.
Using the Aurora (Master Rank) melding method ensures that the talismans you create have one (1) secured skill you specify. Use this melding method if you're aiming for a desired combination of skills and stats in a Talisman while having a 100% guaranteed skill of your choice (note that the guaranteed skill's level is still random.) This is a good choice if you already have a planned build in mind and do not want to invest too much time and resources into randomized talismans.

Although you're best off waiting for Master Rank to really start grinding Talismans, the MR6 unlock barrier to entry can be daunting for some. Having a good Talisman can help push through Master Rank, so try the methods below if you want to farm some High Rank Talismans.
As of Update 3.0, fighting Thunder Serpent Narwa in the quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder is still the most efficient way to farm for melding materials. Though Narwa materials are not the highest in terms of value, each run can be completed in roughly 5-10 minutes! You can even achieve a sub-5 minute run if you know all her patterns and nuances!
For an informative guide on how to beat Thunder Serpent Narwa, click on the link below:
When Wyvern Riding monsters, an opposing monster can make it drop up to three Shiny Drop Materials by attacking it three times. This is the maximum for every monster so we can use this mechanic to farm materials quickly without having to actually hunt the monster.
Though not as efficient as farming Thunder Serpent Narwa, this method is way easier especially if you cannot finish Narwa's hunt below 10 minutes. We suggest doing this if you want to relax or farm passively while watching a movie or TV show!
|1||Find a suitable monster and quest to farm Shiny Drops!
We suggest the following quests:
★7 A Quartet of Horns
→ Target: Diablos
★7 The Emperor of Flame (Need HR40+)
→ Target: Teostra
★7 The Evil Star from Beyond (Need HR100+)
→ Target: Crimson Glow Valstrax
|2||Mount the other non-target monster in the area because they are easier to mount with high damage Silkbind Attacks. If you want, you may also look for Puppet Spiders in the locale but this will slow you down and affect your efficiency.
Weapons with high damage Silkbind Attacks like the Hunting Horn's Earthshaker or the Great Sword's Adamant Charge Slash is recommended!
|3||Look for the target monster and attack it thrice to make it drop three shinies.|
|4||Launch your ridden monster to the other monster to make the target monster mountable. Mount that monster next!|
|5||Attack your previously ridden monster thrice to make it drop three shinies. At this stage, you should have six (6) shiny drops on the ground.|
|6||Launch the target monster to the other monster to make it leave! This will make picking up the drops easier and more peaceful.|
|7||Pick up the shiny drops and then Return from Quest Take note of the shiny drops that you pick up so you know which materials to use for Melding later.
Do not choose Abandon Quest because this will reset your quest along with all your shiny drop pickups.
Defender Tickets dropped from Rampage Quests are also great options for melding with their high value and drop rate. Clearing a single quest can get you many of these tickets, so if you find yourself struggling with Narwa, try farming Defender Tickets instead.
Rampage Quests where Apex monsters appear will take more time, so we recommend farming ★6 and up quests with normal monsters only. Each run will take roughly 10-15 minutes with minimal difficulty.
We also suggest reaching an S rank or above to maximize all rewards! To know more on how do so with our guide:
Rampage Guide: How to Get S-Rank
When playing online, alongside the typical rewards, you will also receive Friend Vouchers as a bonus. A single Friend Voucher is similar in value to Defender Tickets, so playing online to farm these is also recommended.
As you complete your quest online, on the results screen you will see a bar for Friend Points that when accumulated will offer bonus rewards, sometimes resulting in a set of 12 Friend Vouchers.
You and your friends will both receive points, and exchanging Guild Cards will increase the number of points you both receive.
|As of August 10, 2022, this exploit has been patched out in the First Title Update of MHRise Sunbreak (Version 11.0).
THIS METHOD DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE.
This trick will allow you to reroll any number of Talismans up to 50 as many times as you want, while only spending the Materials and Kamura Points needed for 1 Talisman for each reroll. You can continue to reroll Talismans this way until you find the perfect fit for your build!
|Things to Prepare in Advance|
|How to Reroll Talismans|
From the menu, select Options > Save Data and turn Autosave Settings to Off.
At the Melding Pot, select Melding–Anima. Make 5 Talismans in each batch, and use MP Accelerant on each of them.
If you're prepared to spend the resources once you roll a good Talisman, making the maximum 10 batches for a total of 50 Talismans is most time-efficient.
Take the crafted talismans and look through them. If you found a talisman you want to keep, stop here. Otherwise, quit the game without saving.
If you select Quit Game from the menu and select Yes to save and quit, you will keep the Talismans you crafted and won't get your Materials back, so watch out!
On restarting the game, go back to the Market and on Melding–Anima, make just one Talisman. Do not use MP Accelerant this time.
The resources you use on this single Talisman will be used permanently, so don't choose something you might want.
Go to Training Master Arlow and select Arena Quests -> Low/High Rank -> Arena 05. Proceed to get bodied by Rajang. Afterwards, you will be prompted to save, but either choice is fine.
This is the fastest way available to complete a Quest, but completing or failing any Quest will do. Remember, if it's on purpose it doesn't hurt your dignity (maybe a little)
Go back to the Market and claim the single Talisman. Save and quit your game.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3. This time, you should get a totally different batch of Talismans without spending any new Materials! If you still didn't get a Talisman you wanted, continue on to Step 4 and repeat the process until you find a good Talisman.
Monster Hunter Rise generates lists of Talismans which are hidden to the player each time they craft at the Melding Pot. The lists only reset under certain conditions, so even if the player resets the game and crafts Talismans again, they'll just draw from the same list. If you notice, this is why the Talisman obtained in Step 6 is the same as the first Talisman of the list in Step 3.
It's possible to reset the list by crafting at least one Talisman and restarting the game. This exploit takes advantage of this fact by doing exactly that, and resetting the list repeatedly to check as many possible Talismans as you like!
