With Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak releasing on June 30, here’s our guide to everything you need to do before starting Sunbreak. The good news is that getting access to Sunbreak is super easy. But for players who want to have an easier time with Sunbreak, it’ll help to do some prep work.

How to unlock Sunbreak

In order to access Sunbreak, you need to beat the “Serpent Goddess of Thunder” 7★ Hub quest that sees you fighting against Thunder Serpent Narwa. This is the final quest that was available when the game launched. It’s an easy fight – especially if you have Guardian Armor.

Optional things to do before Sunbreak

For players who want to go into Sunbreak fully prepared, you’ll want to beat Valstrax, get new Dango recipes, and unlock all your Switch Skills.

Beat Valstrax

Valstrax was the final monster added to Monster Hunter Rise (MHR). Since Valstrax’s armor is the most meta armor in the base game, it’s worth getting. You’ll have to increase your Hunter Rank to 100 in order to unlock the Valstrax fight.

Unlock Dango recipes

The Dango system offers powerful boosts that can make hunts much easier. You can unlock Dango recipes by completing some easy quests.

Unlock all Switch Skills

Switch Skills are unique to all 14 weapon types and offer powerful offensive and defensive moves to help you out against monsters.

You can get the Switch Skill quests from Utsushi in the Gathering Hub as you rise from Hunter Ranks 4-6.

Optional: Farm talismans

Due to the RNG nature of the Talisman system, we’re going to suggest that this is an optional task. Depending on your luck, you’ll get the right talisman for your build in a few attempts, or it might be a slog that takes dozens of hours to complete.

The early talismans you’ll find Sunbreak will likely be better than the best talismans available in the base game. So if you have time on your hands, then go ahead and farm talismans. Otherwise, it’s better to focus on unlocking Switch Skills and Dango recipes.
