Monster Hunter: Rise's Light Crystals are an upgrade material in the game used to improve a wide range of equipment pieces. The Kamura Iron Bow V, the Felyne Bow I, the Almudron Helm, the Kulu-Ya-Ku Helm — all require Light Crystals to create or upgrade. Here's where to find the material.

Monster Hunter: Rise Light Crystal: Where to Find Light Crystals

Light Crystals can only be obtained from one place in the game: the Flooded Forest zone. Within that area, players are able to pick them up from both blue and white mining outcrops. Blue mining outcrops are more common, but are also less likely to produce Light Crystals. White mining outcrops, on the other hand, are less common but produce Light Crystals more frequently.

As Monster Hunter: Rise only launched Friday, the community is still figuring out the most efficient ways to farm up its many materials. Early impressions seem to indicate lower rank quests are preferable to high-rank ones, as high-rank quests appear more likely to cause Nova Crystals to drop instead of Light Crystals.

The best time to chase Light Crystals is during a Mining Upsurge in the area.
