An icy stare before death.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is a massive expansion that features many new monsters, such as Lunagaron, who you meet early on.

So to help out, here's Lunagaron weaknesses, resistances, and drops in MHR Sunbreak.

An azure-colored Fanged Wyvern with an organ that chills the air it inhales, which then circulates throughout its body in a unique form of thermoregulation. It can travel long distances and endure significant environmental changes, allowing them to occupy a wide range of habitats.

Lunagaron Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

This fight needs to use a Fire elemental weapon, as Lunagaron is heavily weak to Fire. If you have no Fire, Thunder is a close second, with Dragon being third. Most location is the same, with a few exceptions, such as the abdomen when using Fire. Lunagaron is immune to both Water and Ice.

Lunagaron Weapon location weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Blunt weapons are great against smashing the living ice out of Lunagaron and should primarily focus purely on the head. Those wielding Cutting weapons focus on anywhere else, as it's all pretty much the same. Though Ammo users do fantastic damage aiming when shots impact the head, they should do nothing else apart from attack the head.

Lunagaron Status resistances and ailment effectiveness in MHR Sunbreak

Like most monsters, ailments aren't the best thing to use against Lunagaron. They all will work but slowly. It's beneficial to use anything with Blast and find a Firebeetle to inflict Fireblight, which will constantly cause damage for a time.

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

  • There are numerous 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
