Trying to catch up so your Hunter is capable of taking on all the challenges in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak? Here are 15 things that we think all Hunters should do before taking on the Sunbreak expansion!
|Things To Do Before Sunbreak||MHRise Post Game & 100% Completion Guide|
List of Contents
To access Sunbreak's story, CAPCOM revealed that Hunters must complete the quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder. This quest pits you against Thunder Serpent Narwa and is unlocked after finishing ★7 Key Quests.
Serpent Goddess of Thunder
Quest and Rewards
MHRise Sunbreak will introduce Master Rank and with it, new armor sets and armor skills. We suggest having a single, powerful build for one weapon that can bridge you from High Rank to Master Rank.
Remember, Master Rank monsters hit like a truck so the armor must be fully upgraded!
Builds and Best Equipment for Each Weapon
In Master Rank, weapons usually get new upgrade paths to choose from. This is in contrast to armors where you have to craft all of them from scratch!
We suggest getting all the weapons you want in High Rank, instead of collecting armors. This way, you can efficiently allocate your precious zenny.
Weapons List: All Weapon Guides
Though Master Rank is expected to introduce new and stronger types of Armor Spheres, we still recommend collecting as much as you can in the base game
This helps in upgrading the first few armors you're gonna craft in Master Rank - making your Sunbreak early game grind relatively easy.
|List of Armor Spheres|
|Armor Sphere||Armor Sphere+||Advanced Armor Sphere|
|Hard Armor Sphere||Heavy Armor Sphere|
You might think that we'll be suggesting grinding for that god Talisman before Sunbreak but no - don't roll for more.
We expect a new melding method to come in Sunbreak, and with it Master Rank grade rolls. Try saving your precious monster parts for the early parts of Sunbreak so you can supplement your early game armor more effectively.

If there is one thing that will remain unchanged in Sunbreak, it's the Gathering Armor Set.
The skills required to increase your bounty whenever you gather will stay the same so you can invest and make your gathering set as comfortable as possible in the base game!

|Tips from Game8||This is an example of a High Rank equipment that focuses on gathering. Its main skill Geologist makes sure that you get extra amounts whenever you gather from any node. You can even gem in Botanist when you can.
In addition, a maxed-out Hunger Resistance negates stamina depletion completely so you can explore to your heart's content.
Of course, this is just a baseline build that uses Kamura and Leather sets to get you started as soon as you hit High Rank. Once you have unlocked more armor sets from later monsters, you can tweak this build to include some more quality of life skills like Constitution and Evade Extender!
High Rank armors and weapons are already siphoning all our money with their insane upgrade prices but it's about to get crazier when we need to craft Master Rank armors and weapons in Sunbreak. We suggest stocking up around 5,000,000z before going to Sunbreak.
Stock up money (zenny) as early as the base game by following our guide below:
Zenny Farming Guide:
How to Farm Money Fast
We suggest stocking up on essential items to get you ready for the Sunbreak expansion. Master Rank monsters hit hard so expect to blow through most of these while building your very first Master Rank armor set.
Healing Items like Mega Potions, Max Potions, and Herbal Medicines should be prioritized for all Hunters. For stamina-heavy weapon users like Dual Blades and Bow, stock up on Dash Juices from Rondine.
If you use either the Light Bowgun or the Heavy Bowgun, we also suggest crafting a lot of ammo to use for Master Rank! As these are crafted using materials heavily sourced from the Argosy, try crafting as much as possible in the base game.
Essential decorations like Tenderizer Jewel 2, Attack Jewel 2, and Expert Jewel 2 should be your highest priority. If possible, craft an equal number of decorations to their maximum level, making sure you have the flexibility to build Master Rank armor sets early on.
For other decorations, we suggest checking the recommended skills for your weapon and checking their corresponding decorations in the list below:

Palicos and Palamutes will always be a great addition to your team so we recommend getting them to max level (Level 50) and finding the best skills to go with each type. You can also give them the strongest Buddy armor and weapon available from Crimson Glow Valstrax.
We suggest having atleast one (1) healing-type Palico, one (1) gathering-type Palico, and one (1) Palamute!
Palico and Palamute Buddy Skills Guide
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will introduce a lot of new Silkbind Attacks and Moves on release so unlock all Switch Skills if possible!
What's more, the new feature in Sunbreak called Skill Swap will enable Hunters to seamlessly switch between Switch Skill loadouts! This ensures that even skills earned in base Rise are useable and won't be power crept in Master Rank!

How to Unlock All Switch Skills
The Dango Canteen is confirmed to arrive in Elgado Outpost! We suggest unlocking all the Dangos in base Rise so you can have a complete menu and tailor your food buffs before every hunt!
Dango List: Effects and How to Unlock
Villager Requests usually reward Hunters with utilities that will make their hunting lives easier.
These quests reward hunters with, but are not limited to:
• New Subcamps
• Extra Argosy submarines
• Palamute Equipment
• and more!
Requests Guide and List of Requests
On that note, we highly suggest unlocking all the Subcamps for every locale in the game. This will help you greatly in navigating the huge open map when hunting monsters.
You can opt to not do this at all though, but you have to run from Base Camp using Palamutes or ride Great Wirebugs to your destination.
Sub-Camp Locations Guide:
How to Unlock All Sub-Camps
The Sunbreak Expansion will introduce Master Rank, an entirely new level of difficulty for all monsters in the game. The difficulty spike is sometimes so huge that Hunters tend to get carted a lot of times early on, especially if they still don't have their starting Master Rank gear.
On that note, we suggest sharpening not just your weapons but your skills as a Hunter as well! Take on all Advanced quests as they tend to mimic the difficulty close to that of Master Rank. You can also take on the Apex Emergency Event Quests as those are fairly difficult as well!
Good luck out there Hunters, and see you in Sunbreak!
