Monster Hunter Rise Sinister Cloth Guide
In Monster Hunter Rise, you’re able to equip a variety of weapons and armor for character, your Palamutes, and your Palicos. One rare material you need is Sinister Cloth, which is used to craft several different items, including the Felyne and Cayne Death Stench armor sets and the Cawscythe. Here’s how to get the crafting material from Meowcenaries expeditions.
Go to Kamura Village's Buddy Plaza and talk to Felyne Chief Kogarashi, who’s in charge of the Meowcenaries. After speaking to them, you can send the Meowcenaries to various scout locations in the Monster Hunter Rise world:
- Shrine Ruins
- Frost Islands
- Sandy Plains
- Flooded Forest
- Lava Caverns
Some of these locations, including Shrine Ruins, Frost Islands, Sandy Plains, and Flooded Forest, have a blue sparkle next to their location names. That means there is a chance for your Meowcenaries to pick up Sinister Cloth material from that location.
If you have extra Palamutes and Palicos, you can send them on Meowcenaries trips to retrieve the Sinister Cloth material for you. To get more animal companions, be sure to visit Iori, who is in the stall to the left of Kogarashi.
Within each area are several routes, and each route icon has a green or red outline around it. Additionally, some icons have blue sparkles in them. Pick the routes that have the blue sparkles for a chance to get rare materials. After picking the route, assign your four Meowcenaries to it, and send them off by confirming their departure by spending points.
You can increase the chance of getting rare items like Sinister Cloth if you use a Lagniapple to entice the Meowcenaries to work harder. You can find Lagniapples by completing Optional sub-quests that list them as a reward, or you can find them out while foraging in the wild, though the chances of finding them foraging are lower.
After sending the Meowcenaries out, it will typically take a few hunts (even 4-5) for them to return, but it's good to go to Buddy Plaza after every hunt to check in. Since the chance to get Sinister Cloth is completely random, the Meowcenaries will sometimes come back empty-handed.
That’s how you find Sinister Cloth in Monster Hunter Rise. Once you find 5x pieces of Sinister Cloth, you can craft the Cayne Death Stench armor, though you will also need a number of other materials as well. For more on the latest Monster Hunter, consider heading over to our growing tips page!
