In a crossover event that surprises no one, Amaterasu-inspired equipment from Okami comes to Monster Hunter Rise. Ever since the dog hunting partner Palamute was first shown off, most Monster Hunter Rise and Capcom games fans have expected an Okami collaboration to be part of one of the post-launch updates. The event quest comes on July 30 and will reward you with Amaterasu layered armor for your Palamute and a Celestial Brush weapon (probably a Long Sword) for your Hunter.
The first Capcom Collab Event Quest launched on June 18. After facing Great Izuchi and Kulu-Ya-Ku in the Arena, the event quest will reward you with material to craft layered armor that turns your Palico into the Tsukino character from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. If you have save data of the game, you can also get a special Talisman and the Rider layered armor set for your Monster Hunter Rise hunter. Capcom is planning to pump out up to five Collab Event Quests until August with the 3.3 version update.
Talking about Palamute, you can also download a special Canyne Buddy named “Wanogre” from Senri the Mailman since July 23 as part of the 3.1 Title Update. After downloading the DLC, don’t forget to talk to Iori to add Wanogre to your team. Wanogre itself seems to be based on Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto’s own Palamute. It comes at level 35 with a special Buddy comment that reads: “Previous Meowster: Team Rise Proud Warrior Buddy!”. For Buddy skills, these are eight skills that you can equip on Wanogre:
- Health Up (L)
- Attack Up (L)
- Critical Up (L)
- Element Attack Up
- Artful Dodger
- Negate Paralysis
- Negate Stun
