Monster Hunter Rise: How to Get High Quality Pelt

If you're scratching your head wondering how to get High Quality pelt in Monster Hunter Rise, wonder no more. This guide tells you exactly how to get it.

High Quality Pelt is one of the more perplexing High-Rank crafting materials to find in Monster Hunter Rise. While the list of materials you need for Low-Rank ends up not being that long, the list of High-Rank materials you need is a different story, and this one is an important one.

There are loads of High-Rank materials you're going to have to go out of your way for if you want certain pieces of equipment, and High Quality Pelt is used in a handful of equipment crafting recipes. Luckily, it's not too many since the item can be a bit of a pain to get. Only two monsters drop this material in Monster Hunter Rise, and you may not come across them easily.

This Monster Hunter Rise guide explains exactly what you need to do in order to get your hands on High Quality Pelt, so read on to learn more.

Monster Hunter Rise: High Quality Pelt Locations

Being a High-Rank material, you can only get High Quality Pelt from High-Rank monsters. But don't fret: you're hunting the easiest of the easy in terms of HR for High Quality Pelt  Kelbi and Anteka.

High Quality Pelt only comes from slaying High-Rank Kelbi or Anteka, with Kelbi being the more reliable source. Anteka's carve rate for High Quality Pelt is under 20% — meaning you're better off farming Kelbi for it.

The Kelbi that drop High Quality Pelt are found in the Shrine Ruins in two specific areas: Regions 11 and 13. They are circled in green on the Monster Hunter Rise map to the right.

Like most other smaller herbivore monsters, Kelbi are skittish. Once you attack a single Kelbi, the others in your vicinity will attempt to flee. You can make farming them a little easier by waiting to carve until you slay all of them in the area.

I prefer farming them for High Quality Pelt in Region 11, as there is also a Bonepile to dig through and a mining outcrop to whack on. Region 11 is also faster to get to, but that may just be personal preference.

The moose-looking Anteka are found in the Frost Islands, and are located in Region 1 and Region 6 of the map. They will also flee once you attack one of their kind, but the High Quality Pelt drop rate is much lower for them. Still, they're worth killing sometimes if you think you're going to need the pelt later and the Anteka just happen to be where you are.
