Hermitaur Basic Information

Type Carapaceon
Official Description
The juvenile form of Daimyo Hermitaur, these small Carapaceons live around coastal areas and sandy soil. They often hide in sand, popping out of their hidey-holes only to claw at nearby intruders. The sizable shells they carry protect their vitals; as they grow in size, they'll move to larger dwellings to accommodate, such as monster skulls. The Carapaceon Brains they yield are quite the delicacy.

Recommended Quest to Farm Hermitaur

If you're farming and you're not lucky enough to get an outbreak of Hermitaur, you can do the A Sinking Feeling quest instead to help get more Hermitaur on the map.

Other Maps Not Recommended to Farm

According to your Hunter's Notes, they are also found in Shrine Ruins, Sandy Plains, and Flooded Forest. It is not recommended to farm them there as they only spawn at one area, in groups of 2 at most.

Hermitaur Characteristics

Baby Version of Daimyo Hermitaur

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Claw Slam

These little guys are the child version of Daimyo Hermitaur. However, in previous games, they didn't follow the Daimyo Hermitaur around and fight with it, unlike Izuchis and Great Izuchis.

Can Charge You During Fights

MH Rise Sunbreak - Hermitaur Knockdown

Be careful around Hermitaur! They can knock you on your butt during fights with large monsters, much like Bullfango. This can lead to you carting, so be mindful!

Found at the Jungle and Shrine Ruins

MH Rise Sunbreak - Hermitaurs

In the demo, Hermitaur can be spotted at the coastal areas of the Jungle. Their entry in the Hunter Notes says they can also be found in the Shrine Ruins.
