Where To Find Purecrystal in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Purecrystal is a new type of ore that players can find in the Flooded Forest in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Purecrystal is a rare ore added to the new Sunbreak DLC and is used in a lot of crafting recipes for gear, such as several items in the Utsushi set and Ingot set. Purecrystal, like other ores in Monster Hunter Rise, is only available once players reach Master Rank, another new mechanic in Sunbreak.

The Flooded Forest is one of the locations in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. The new DLC takes players into the new Elgado Outpost, where powerful monsters known as the Three Lords are threatening the area: the Elder Dragon Malzeno, the wolf-like Wyvern Lunagaron, and the gorilla-like beast Garangolm. The Flooded Forest is a combination of dense jungle, rivers, and flooded areas filled with all kinds of beasts and loot. Here, players can also search for Purecrystal once far enough through the DLC.

Players can search for Purecrystal when they go on Master Rank Expeditions in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Master Rank is unlocked in the Elgado Outpost, and can be done without needing to unlock other ranks. From here, players can go on Master Rank Expeditions to search for ores and bonepiles in Monster Hunter Rise; doing it this way means that players won't be timed and can explore at their leisure. Since the only place to find Purecrystal is in the Flooded Forest, begin a Master Rank Expedition to this swampy location to get started.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Flooded Forest Purecrystal Mining Outcrop map

Purecrystal is an ore that can be found in white and blue mining nodes in the Flooded Forest in Monster Hunter Rise. The easiest way to find these locations is to look at the detailed map. Players can filter the material list to make it easier to focus on where certain items are; the white and blue mining outcrops are two filters that can be toggled together or separately. Players should go on Master Rank Expeditions and then search for these mining outcrops to find Purecrystals. As is true for all ores in Monster Hunter Rise, there is no guarantee that Purecrystal will drop from each mining node, so players should search as many mining outcrops as possible.

The Purecrystal is used to craft several pieces of gear that are new to the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak DLC, including:

  • Almudrom Vambraces X
  • Astalos Helm
  • Ceanataur Coil
  • Damascus Mail X
  • Gore Mail
  • Hawkcoil
  • Hawksuit
  • Ingot Coil X
  • Ingot Greaves X
  • Ingot Helm X
  • Ingot Mail X
  • Ingot Vambraces X
  • Jelly Hat X
  • Kushala Grip X
  • Utsushi True Braces / Channeler's Hope (Spring)
  • Utsushi True Braces / Medium's Prayer (Light)
  • Vaik Helm X
  • Utsushi True Greaves / Channeler's Hakama (Spring)
  • Utsushi True Greaves / Medium's Hakama (Light)

In total, players will need 23 Purecrystals to craft all of this gear in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Any additional Purecrystals will sell for 3600 gold each, so even if players don't need any more of the ore for crafting, it is rare enough to sell for a higher price.
