Tips and Tricks

Some Item Effect Stacks

MH Rise - Using Item Buffs.png

Most of the items on the list can stack but you can't stack Demondrug with Mega Demondrug, and Armorskin with Mega Armorskin. The mega counterparts of these items would only be the one in effect.

However, using a Mega Demondrug, a Might Seed, then a Demon Powder will yield a 27-point increase on your attack value. Same goes with using a Mega Armorskin, plus Adamant seed, then a Hardshell Powder. Stacking these three items should provide a 65-point increase on your total defense.

Use Item Prolonger Skill

The Enduring Jewel 2 or the Item Prolonger skill at level 3 increases the duration of the item's effect by 50%.

For example, having the Item Prolonger at lv. 3 while using Immunizer should prolong its duration from 5 minutes to 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

The same principle applies to other items except for those effective already for the whole duration of the quest, such the Demondrug, Armorskin, and their mega counterparts.

Buffs Are Removed After Fainting

MH Rise - Fainting and Quest Failed

When your character carts or faints during a quest the buffs applied to it are removed immediately as you reach the main camp. Be sure to bring enough buff items so that you could immediately reapply those buffs to your stats.
