Monster Hunter Rise Gracium Ore Guide: How to Find It

Here's how to find Monster Hunter Rise's Gracium ore and whether it's worth the trouble.

Monster Hunter Rise’s Gracium ore is one of the game’s essential items, but you won’t find it from monsters. Gracium is only obtainable through harvesting one of Rise’s item gathering points, and that means lots of repetition depending on which armor sets you want.

Our Monster Hunter Rise Gracium guide shows you where to look and how many to aim for depending on what armor sets you want.

Monster Hunter Rise Gracium Locations

You’ll find Gracium in the Frost Islands. Since it’s an ore, you can only get Gracium from one of the Frost Islands’ mining outcrops. There are potentially multiple mining outcrops in Frost Isles, but like the item distribution itself, it’s random whether you’ll encounter them.

I’ve marked where one of the Frost Islands mining outcrops could appear on the upper level. You’ll potentially find some in the cave areas as well.

Once you do find one, just interact with it using “A” to obtain ores or crystals from it. It’s completely random what you get, however, so it might take multiple trips. Expedition quests are best for item gathering.

I’d also recommend checking what items your Buddies might bring back on Meowcenary missions. Having them collect items while you do other quests is much more convenient.

Monster Hunter Rise Gracium Uses

Here’s what you’ll use Gracium for and how many you’ll need for each. Most of it is for Ingot and Alloy armor, neither of which is terribly strong for later hunts. 

  • Ingot Helm (2)
  • Ingot Coil (1)
  • Ingot Greaves (2)
  • Ingot Vambraces (2)

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.
