What Are Prized Pelts in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Crafting is a very important mechanic in games like Monster Hunter Rise, and Sunbreak improves upon that by introducing new crafting materials like Prized Pelts. There are certain armors and equipment in Sunbreak that need the Prized Pelts to get crafted.

Prized Pelts are some of the rarest resources in Sunbreak, but they can be used to craft the best armor sets in the game as well. Additionally, Prized Pelt can also be farmed in the game, and we will discuss that in complete detail later in the guide. 

How To Obtain Prized Pelts in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Prized Pelts can only be obtained by doing Master Rank Quests. Master Ranks feature a higher difficulty where you’ll have to face a more difficult version of the boss. However, you do not need to kill the boss in order to get the Prized Pelts in Sun break.

There are small monsters known as Kelbi and Anteka that you’ll find during Master Rank Quests. You need to farm these monsters in order to get the Prized Pelts in Sunbreak. All you have to do is start a Master Rank expedition in Sunbreak and start hunting these monsters.

Not only do you have to hunt them down, but you also have to carve them in order to obtain the Prized Pelts. In conclusion, the following methods can be used to obtain Prized Pelts in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak;

  • Farming Kelbi
  • Farming Anteka

Now we will discuss the best farming methods of these monsters in complete detail.

Farming Kelbi

Make sure that you start an expedition on Master Rank in Sunbreak. Kelbi can be distinguished from other monsters by their smaller size. They also possess blue-colored fur that can be spotted from afar. Their appearance in Sunbreak is also like that of a goat in Moster Hunter Rise.

Kelbi can be found almost everywhere in Sunbreak but are most abundant in Shrine Ruins, Sandy Plains, Flooded Forest, and the Jungle. Kelbis are very fast creatures, but they are also very weak. Only two melee hits should be strong enough to hunt down a Kelbi.

However, Kelbi can run away very quickly, so it is recommended to use ranged weapons or a Kunai to kill them. Using ranged weapons will almost always ensure a Kelbi Kill. It should be noted that Kelbi can run away when a large monster appears. So be swift in your hunts.

Kelbi has a 30% chance to drop a Prized Pelt in Monster Hunter Rise, which is almost double the drop rate from Antekas in Sunbreak. You should be ready to hunt and carve quite a few Kelbi monsters before you get the precious Prized Pelts. Kelbi will also drop Kelbi Horns in addition to the Prized Pelts.

Kelbis have a chance to drop many other items other than Prized Pelts, including;

  • Kelbi Horn has a 35% chance of dropping
  • Prized Pelt has a drop rate of 30%
  • White Liver has a 15% chance of dropping
  • High-Quality Pelt has a drop rate of 10%
  • Raw Meat has a 10% chance of dropping

Farming Antekas

Farming Antekas is the second-best method of obtaining Prized Pelts in Sunbreak. Antekas can be distinguished from other monsters by their large horns that come out from their heads. They also give a bull-like appearance from afar, which can be used to spot them.

Though, these creatures do not attack the player on sight. Antekas will defend themselves against the player if you try to hunt them down. Antekas can be abundantly found in the Frost Islands. Start an expedition on Master Rank in those islands and continue farming Antekas for Prized Pelts.

The drop rate of Prized Pelt from Antekas is roughly 18% only. It is almost half the drop rate of Prized Pelts from Kelbis. It is recommended to farm Kelbis instead of Antekas for Prized Pelts, as Kelbis will give you your desired drop much more quickly. 

Antekas have a chance to drop many other items other than Prized Pelts, including;

  • Anteka Proud Antler has a drop rate of 40%
  • Raw Meat has a 32% chance of dropping
  • Prized Pelt has a drop rate of 18%
  • White Liver has a 10% chance of dropping
