Monster Hunter Rise: Where to Find Wisplanterns

Monster Hunter Rise Wisplanterns are tough to find, and you'll need a fair bit of luck to get them.

Monster Hunter Rise Wisplanterns are rare items you’ll need to scavenge if you want to get the most from the Argosy submarine – and you do want to get the most from it. Completing Cultural Exchange quests means more rare items for your item box without you having to go out and find them.

Don’t expect to get these right away, though. Wisplanterns tend to be more common in High-Rank missions, and even then, it may take more than one expedition to get what you need. This Monster Hunter Rise guide tells you everything you need to know.

Where to Find Wisplanterns in Monster Hunter Rise

Wisplanterns come from the Shrine Ruins map, specifically from Shimmering Red Berry plants. There’s only a handful of them in the region, though, mostly towards the far northern end. They also yield Firelanterns and, at High-Rank only, Phantolanterns, so you’re not always guaranteed a Wisplantern.

Some players report better chances of getting Wisplanterns on High-Rank expeditions – that’s a five-star quest or higher – though we didn’t notice a significantly better chance in our testing. Still, it’s worth trying, if only so you can hunt some rare monsters and bring back better gear while you’re out there.

We've marked all Shimmering Red Berry locations in the Shrine Ruins on the map below.

You’ll also need to find Boatshells to complete Cultural Exchanges. Those only come from Frost Islands and the oyster beds you can scavenge there. As with Wisplanterns, you may have better luck hunting them while on a High-Rank quest, though we found some in a Low-Rank quest as well.

There’s nothing else you can use Wisplantern for, so feel free to ignore them for the rest of your time in Kamura.
