Monster Hunter Rise Quality Fin Guide: How to Get It

Here's how to find the High Rank Monster Hunter Rise Quality Fin item.

One of the big twists in Monster Hunter Rise is changing armor requirements once you reach High Rank quests, and one of the items you'll want to grab plenty of is the Quality Fin.

MH Rise's Quality Fin comes from a monster you've probably seen before in Village Quests, but as with other High Rank materials, you don't have a chance of obtaining Quality Fin before you reach 4-Star quests or higher.

Monster Hunter Rise Quality Fin Guide

Monster Hunter Rise's Quality Fin item only comes from Delex, and you'll find Delex in the Sandy Plains stage. They're swimming in the sandy areas of regions 10 and 12, the northwest and northeast corners respectively.

In my experience, you have a better chance of finding more Delex in region 10.

Delex are incredibly simple monsters to fight, but the trouble is actually engaging them. They swim through the sand like dolphins, periodically leaping out before diving under again. Delex occasionally stop near you for a stare-down, but your best chance of fighting a Delex is following it and timing your attack when it jumps out of the sand.

The easiest way to keep up is riding your Palamute. Delex aren't the hardiest of beasts, even at High Rank, and a few Palamute attacks are enough to take one down. Press "X" while atop your Palamute to attack using the Palamute's weapon.

As with most rare monster parts, your chances of getting a Quality Fin are fairly low. It might take a few High Rank hub missions to finally get what you're looking for. It will only be a Big Fin if you're in a Low Rank quest.

However, assuming you've kept up with your Buddies, you can also send them out on Meowcenary missions for a chance of obtaining Quality Fins without you having to slay dozens of Delex.

That's everything you need to know about getting Quality Fin in Monster Hunter Rise, but be sure to check out our other Monster Hunter Rise guides for more tips.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
