If you have been cleansing Elgard of monsters in Monster Hunter Rise, then it is safe to say that you have found yourself in the need of some Purecrystal.

So if you are done mindlessly wandering around in Elgard in hopes of finding a Purecrystal, then our Monster Hunter Rise Purecrystal guide is just for you. We have highlighted the locations containing Purecrystal in Monster Hunter Rise so you can streamline your process of finding it and then finally go back to the fun part of the game.

What Is Purecrystal In Monster Hunter Rise?
Finding Purecrystal can be very hard, even when you know the exact location to find it, as it is a relatively rare spawn. Therefore here are a few preparations you should do before heading out to farm it so the process can be eased up a bit.
The first thing you want to do is use the “sniff em out” feature on your palamute, and this basically marks the locations of all the herbs, ore, and other farmable stuff. Speaking of farming, read our Monster Hunter Rise Pricey Shoot guide.
The second thing you will need is the Geologist skill which basically helps every farming run by increasing the number of times you can use a farming spot. You can acquire it by wearing the Leather X or the Brigade armor set.
The final piece of the puzzle is that you need to make sure that you are on an expedition run as, during it, you will not have to face any monsters; thus, you will save yourself a lot of time.
Assuming that you have completed the above-mentioned preparations, let us show you the actual location where you can find the Purecrystal in Monster Hunter Rise. Also, read our BEST Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Builds guide to decide which build you are going to be using in MHR.
Contrary to the in-game description of Purecrystal, you will find it in The Flooded Forrest. Another thing worth noting is that it is only obtainable once you have reached Master Rank 3. That said, once you are at the Master Rank version of the Flooded Forrest, bring up your detailed map and open the icon selection list.
You can find Purecrystal from both the blue-colored Mining Outcrop and the white-colored Mining Outcrop. The difference is that the white one has more chances of spawning it. So select both the blue-colored and the white-colored Outcrop from the icon selection list on the detailed map.
Your next step is to keep an eye out for dark bluish crystals as well as the glowing white ones stuck in the ground. Also, try reading the Monster Hunter Rise Frocium guide.
The White Mining Outcrop
The following section of our Monster Hunter Rise Purecrystal guide covers the Purecrystals obtainable from white mining outcrop. You can use the map above for reference.
The first White Mining Outcrop is found in area number 2. Once you are there, you will spot a huge pyramid-looking temple. Climb the stairs to the top room of the pyramid, or you can alternatively wall run your way there. Once inside the room, take a left and then take the slide down, which leads to the outside.
Now you need to be extremely careful here, as the moment you exit through the slide, you will have to grapple to the right wall behind you, or you will fall back to the ground. Once you have grappled onto the stone wall, go around it to land on a stone beam.
From here, look upwards, and you will find a small entrance inside the wall. This is where you will find your first white Outcrop so make your way here.
Your next outcrop is also located in the same temple. To find it, make your way to the top of the temple, and just like in the previous room, you will find a small entrance in the wall at the top. Enter it, and you will find your outcrop to the left. Mine the outcrop and jump down through the hole to get out.
Side note: You might be thinking that finding all the Outcrops is this difficult, but that’s simply not true. In fact, these are the only hard ones; the rest of them are relatively easy to find.
Your next destination is area number 4; once you are there, look for a pyramid similar to the one you visited before but much smaller. Climb the stairs, and you will find the Outcrop upon entering the room.
The next Outcrop is in area number 10, and you can use the picture above for better reference.
The last one is found between areas 6 and 7. Its entrance is hidden inside the wall of a mountain, so it can be a bit tricky to find, but it is manageable.
The Blue Mining Outcrop
The first Blue Mining Outcrops are spotted between areas 9 and 10. Another is found in area number 1. And another one in the center of areas 2 and 3.
Now, Although you can find a decent amount of Blue Mining Outcrops in the above-mentioned areas, the majority of them are in areas 11 and 7 near the sub-camp. Keep repeating the above-mentioned cycle until you obtain the desired number of Purecrystals.
