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

There are numerous ways to get monster parts, but it revolves heavily around a percentage system, which is RNG.

  • There are multiple ways to gain items:
    • You can generally 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 normally be carved once
    • Capturing the monster instead of killing it can alter the percentage of rewards
    • Breaking monster parts, claws, and wings increases the odds of getting more parts
    • From obtaining the white drops that fall from the monster
    • Gaining rewards for completing your quest.
