★ Monster Hunter Rise and its expansion MHRise: Sunbreak is out now for the Nintendo Switch & PC, then for PlayStation, XBox, & Game Pass on January 20, 2023!
Head on over to our MHRise Wiki for the latest guides and strategies about all things MHRise!
Do you want to take on that Arch-Tempered Nergigante event quest, but the game is telling you that your Hunter Rank (HR) isn't high enough? Then this is the guide for you! Read on to learn the best quests to grind to raise your Hunter Rank as fast as possible.
List of Contents
Your HR is an indication of how much you have progressed through the game. The higher your HR is, the more quests are presented to you, each with increasing difficulty.
You can get HR points (HRP) every time you complete a quest, which will then accumulate and level up your HR.
Not all quests were made equal; some quests get you more HRP than others.
|1||Investigation of Tempered Monsters (Threat Level 3)||~1200|
|3||Investigation of Tempered Monsters (Threat Level 2)||~750–900|
|4||Elder Dragon quests||800|
A higher HRP does not mean that it should be the quest you go for every time. If you consider time and difficulty, Elder Dragon quests (except Kirin and Zorah Magdaros) are more efficient than the first three.
|1||★9 The Sapphire Star's Guidance
Slay Tempered Nergigante, Tempered Teostra, and Tempered Kushala Daora
|2||★9 Snow & Cherry Blossoms
Hunt Tempered Legiana and Tempered Pink Rathian
|3||★9 The White Winds of the New World
Hunt Legiana, Odogaron, Diablos, and Rathalos
|4||★7 Coral Waltz
Hunt Tzitzi-Ya-Ku, Paolumu, Pink Rathian, and Legiana
|5||★7 Deep Green Blues
Hunt Great Jagras, Pukei-Pukei, Tobi-Kadachi, Anjanath, and Rathalos
|★7 Wildspire Bolero
Hunt Kulu-Ya-Ku, Barroth, Jyuratodus, Rathian, and Diablos
It should be noted that ★9 Snow & Cherry Blossoms is more efficient than ★9 The Sapphire Star's Guidance since it only requires you to hunt two monsters, compared to slaying three elder dragons. However, ★9 Snow & Cherry Blossoms is an event quest, so be sure to grind it whenever it comes around for maximum HRP gains.
Similarly, ★9 Snow & Cherry Blossoms is also more efficient than ★9 The White Winds of the New World, even though it's a permanent quest. ★9 The White Winds of the New World takes a long while before it gets unlocked because of all the quests you have to complete. In the meantime, ★9 Snow & Cherry Blossoms is much more accessible since it appears during every event.
All in all, if there's no ongoing event, hunting one monster will be more efficient to grind than hunting two or more monsters.
