How to get Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak afflicted materials

A list of all of the monsters that carry the Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak afflicted materials and tips on how to hunt these diseased creatures

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak afflicted materials: an Arzuros, which is a cross between a badger and a bear, that is affected by disease as shown by a red aura.

Want to know how to get Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak afflicted materials? Once you reach the endgame of this massive RPG game, you’re going to need to make the best weapons and armour, including Master Layered Armor. Once you’ve slain the campaign’s final boss and completed the urgent quest at Master Rank 10, you can start gathering afflicted materials in Anomaly quests. There are eight types of afflicted materials, each obtained through a specific tier of Anomaly quests.

Now, you may think you’re an ace hunter, and even the new Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak monsters stand no chance against you. You should, therefore, be able to get Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak afflicted materials easily. We like that confidence, however, it’s worth keeping in mind that you can’t capture them to end the fight early. It’s an inconvenience, especially since every monster in these Anomaly quests carries a disease in addition to having brand new moves and an extremely high health stat.

Each one of the monsters can enter a Delirious state. When this happens, aim to hit all glowing red spots enough times to make them burst. If you manage to hit all of them enough, you’ll knock the monster down for a short time. However, if you fail to pop these spots within the time frame, a red mist erupts from the beast that upon contact, riddles you with Bloodblight: a new status condition in Sunbreak. It gradually drains your health, natural health recovery, and health recovery from items, though you can hit the monster to steal your health back.

You can’t use items to get rid of Bloodblight once infected, you have to wait for it to go on its own accord. It’s a tricky ailment to handle, but you can also make this effect work for you by equipping a Medicine Jewel+ level 4 jewel to enhance the health you recover while hitting monsters. We also recommend the Recovery Up level 3 skill to quickly heal any damage indicated in red on your health bar.
