Affinity Stat

Affinity is a stat for determining how you can perform the critical hit. There are many skills in the game that increases affinity. More affinity simply means you are more capable of performing a stronger attack.

Regain Stamina

Stamina is needed to attack, dodge, and climb up the walls. You will not be able to regain stamina in the middle of the fight even if you have plenty of steaks. Having a skill that reduces the use of stamina is definitely a better option.

How to Activate Latent Power

Activation Conditions
How to Activate Monster Hunter Rise Latent Power

You can know that Latent Power is active when you see the stamina and affinity symbols above your life bar. The stamina glows in white, and your hands also glow white. If your Latent power is not active, the following are the ways to activate it.

Combat with a Monster

You need to be consistently close to a monster or stay in combat with a monster. You can try it in a hunt and in the training plaza where you will see a large dummy. Being in combat with a monster will start the countdown to activate the latest power. 

Weapon Drawn

If you are not in contact with any creature, latent power can get activated after three minutes of your weapon being drawn.

Hit the enemy

You can cut down on the activation time by exchanging a few blows with the enemy. Hitting the enemy or being hit by the enemy reduces the activation time for latent power.

You have to remember that Latent Power stays active for two minutes. After two minutes, the new countdown begins if any of the above-mentioned steps take place.
