Capcom has added a new event quest to Monster Hunter Rise, and with it, a new layered armor set that makes your Palico look like Tsukino from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. The crafting materials required to make the layered armor can be earned by completing the new low-rank event quest. As with previous events, the quest is downloadable via Senri the Mailman.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is an upcoming RPG launching on the Nintendo Switch and PC on July 9, 2021. In it, players will be able to tame and befriend a variety of monsters from the series, and use a gene transferal mechanic to unlock special abilities for their “Monsties.” Previously, the Monster Hunter Rise collaboration was teased in Capcom’s Monster Hunter presentation in May 2021.
To download the quest, hunters must visit Senri the Mailman in the Steelworks area of Kamura village. From there, you can select the “Add-on Contents” menu, and download the quest titled “Bird Wyverns of Ruin.” Hunters of any rank can participate in the low-rank quest via Minoto in the Gathering Hub.
Notably, the music that normally plays upon completion is replaced by Monster Hunter Stories 2‘s main theme song during this event quest. The quest itself is a relatively straightforward arena hunt, where players will fight against a Great Izuchi, Great Baggi, and Kulu-Ya-Ku.
Upon completion, the quest rewards you with Disguise Devices. Hunters can use this along with Izuchi Scrap to create the Tsukino Costume for Palicos. Crafting the full set will require a total of 8 Disguise Devices and 4 Izuchi Scraps. If you’re low on Izuchi parts, you can get them by killing the Izuchi that spawn during the event quest.
