Astalos Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

No elemental damage is significant against Astalos. All but Thunder inflict damage against the Wyvern, but it's not that effective. But if you have no other choice, use Ice. Equip an Ice weapon and focus on the tail and tail tip.

Astalos Status resistances and ailments in MHR Sunbreak

If you have a Blast weapon, it's pretty effective against the Flying Wyvern, but that's about it. If you find an Epidemic Life helper to inflict Iceblight, do it, as it'll slow down the thunderous creature.

Astalos Drop Rates - Carves, capturing, breaking, & more in MHR Sunbreak

There's multiple ways to get monster parts, but it all heavily revolves around a percentage system, which is ultimately RNG. You may get a rare material or none at all.

  • There are multiple ways of gaining items:
    • You can normally carve three times once the monster is dead, but this can change with skills and the type of monster
    • All chopped appendages of said monster can be carved usually once
    • Capturing the monster instead of killing it, can alter the percentage of rewards
    • Breaking monster parts, claws, wings, etc., increases the odds of getting monster parts
    • From carving the white drops that fall from the monster. This normally happens when monsters fight each other
    • Gaining rewards for completing your quest
