In Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, you need many material pieces to get the armor or weapon you want to craft. Yet there are numerous ways to get parts based on breaking monster limbs, killing, or capturing the beast. The Rathos Mantle is the rarest drop from a Rathalos. Here's the best way to get a Rathalos Mantle in Sunbreak.
Best way to farm Rathalos Mantle in Sunbreak
The best way to farm for a Rathalos Mantle is to take the Master Rank quest King of the Crumbling Castle. If you want some help, you can accept the Support Survey quest Operation Purple Fire, but you will also have to kill a Magnamalo. The most straightforward quest to take is King of the Crumbling Castle.
Before you set off on this quest, bring two traps—a Pitfall Trap and a Shock Trap—along with eight Tranq Bombs. You do not want to kill the monster. Make sure you have Thunder or Dragon weapons to make it easier if you use Dual Blades, Insect Glaive, or Sword and Shield. A Hammer is useful for breaking parts, but Blade can cut off the tail and still break body parts.
On the quest, keep a close eye on the top-right corner of the screen, as a blue icon will appear underneath the Rathalos picture. This means that the monster is weak and is now capturable. Also, pay attention to your Palico, as they will mention when the monster is getting weak.

How to increase the chances of getting a Rathalos Mantle in MHR Sunbreak
Capturing the beast should not be the only thing on your mind, as breaking parts of the Rathalos also gives you the chance of getting a Rathalos Mantle. Rathalos has three parts you can break: the wings, head, and back. Each broken part gives a 3% individual chance of getting a Rathalos Mantle. During the fight, you should focus on the tail using a cutting weapon. You can chop it off to get an additional carve for a 3% chance of getting a Rathalos Mantle.
Finally, you can attempt to Wyvern Ride the additional monsters on the map to attack Rathalos. Doing so will cause white drops to appear, and you can loot for a 1% chance of finding a Rathlos Mantle. If you manage a mounted punisher on Rathalos, this will increase the number of white drops. Do this with every monster to increase the chance. One percent isn't a lot, but it's worth it.
If you don't capture it, you can kill it for a 3% chance of getting a Rathalos Mantle up to three times, depending on if you have the skills for more carves. That said, this is a more time-consuming way of getting a Rathalos Mantle.
