Monster Hunter Rise: How to Find Machalite Ore
In Monster Hunter Rise, you're going to need plenty of materials in order to craft your equipment. One of these materials is Machalite Ore, and it is used in a variety of weapons and armors.
The guide below provides a quick rundown of where you can find Machalite Ore, as well as how to make it appear on your map and which mining nodes are more likely to drop the crafting material.
Where to Find Machalite Ore in Monster Hunter Rise
One of the earliest places you can find Machalite Ore is in Sandy Plains, though it can also be found in the Flooded Forest and the Lava Caverns as well.
Note that with all of these locations, you can either find materials while you're out hunting for monsters, or you can schedule an Expedition trip in the hub if you just want to go out to gather materials.
To find Machalite Ore, look for the mining outcrops on your map.
Pull up the full map by holding down the "minus" button, and then press "X," which will bring up the icons list. Press "R" until you get to the Materials tab, and you should see the white and blue Mining Outcrops icons, between the Godbug and Bonepile icons. Select the icons to make them appear on the map.
While Machalite Ore can be found from blue-icon outcrops, it seems to drop more frequently from white-icon outcrops. These nodes provide "somewhat uncommon ore" as opposed to the "run-of-the-mill" ore found from farming blue nodes.
Since the outcrops now appear on your map, you simply have to go around the area and mine the nodes, hoping that they give you Machalite Ore!
And that is how you find Machalite Ore in Monster Hunter Rise. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks guides in the coming days!
