Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Purecrystal Location: Where to find Purecrystal

The grind is back in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, which means you'll be keeping track of a bunch of different materials you'll need for upgrades to keep that character progression rolling. One key material you'll likely need a bunch of early on is Purecrystal - so on this page we're going to explain Purecrystals in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

Purecrystal are particularly useful for some early game weapon synthesizing, so it's a very useful item to pick up. Many players, depending on their choice of weapon, will likely find themselves trying to grind out. Unfortunately, it's not a guaranteed drop, and it actually won't show up at all until you hit a certain point in the game's progression. Allow us to explain...

We've got everything from all of the Master Rank Armor Sets for both Male and Female hunters, a list of all Subcamp and Buddy Recon locations, and the locations of some key materials such as Purecrystal, Kestodon Husks, and Allfire Stones.

Where to find Purecrystal

Mining Outcrop out in the field.

Purecrystals are actually a traditional mining spot pickup, which means like many types of Ores they can be found in Mining Points in MH Rise. However, they won't actually show up except in the Master Rank Flooded Forest. The game has a small translation error, here, where it says that they can only be found in the Jungle - ignore this, as you won't be able to find Purecrystal at Jungle mining locations. You'll only be able to find them in the Flooded Forest.

A list of Mining Outcrop locations in the Flooded Forest.

Inside the Flooded Forest area, you'll want to go hunting for Mining Outcrops - this is the resource node you'll need to search in order to have a chance at getting those must-have Purecrystal drops. This is actually easier than you'd think; you can go onto your detailed map and filter the material list right the way down until the only icons highlighted are the Mining Outcrop, which are represented by a light grey icon with a question mark. 

Gaining Purecrystals from the Meowcenaries

In addition to mining these Purecrystals yourself, it's also worth noting that sending out Meowcenaries to the Master Rank Flooded Forest can gift you Purecrystals as well, assuming you send them out on a mining operation.

What you need to keep in mind is that Purecrystals aren't a 100% drop rate; like most resources in Monster Hunter Rise, there's an element of the random to what drops and when. You'll find yourself getting a lot of other Ores while doing this, as well. In that sense, this is somewhat in the hands of the gods - but you can simply keep farming familiar nodes, which respawn regularly, to get however many of this material you need.
