Every hunter will want a Rathalos Plate at one point Monster hunter rise, but Plates are some of the rarest drops in the game. You'll need to hunt a healthy number of Rathalos if you plan on catching one (unless you're really lucky). That said, you'll want to hit the high rank hunts if you want to increase your chances.


Rathalos Plates are easier to obtain from High Rank hunts in Monster Hunter Rise.

The Rathalos plate is used in a handful of crafting recipes, to include the Rathalos armor set and weapons. This is a highly desirable item to obtain, but it doesn't exactly have the highest drop rate. You can technically try farming Rathalos Plate in low rank hunts, but your best chances come from high rank hunts.


You'll need to reach the 4-Star Hub Quest Hunts to unlock High Rank, which is accessible around the same time as the Low Rank Rathalos fight. So while you can go out of your way to get them from low rank hunts, you better wait until you start farming high rank hunts if you plan to be effective. Yes, low-rank Rathalos gear can help you get to high rank more easily, but there are easier-to-farm armor sets that will work just as well (Somnacanth comes to mind).

That said, if you want to farm Rathalos Plate in Monster Hunter Rise, you'll want to, well, hunt Rathalos. It's a no-brainer, but what about dropout rates? High Rank has the best drop rates, but they're still not fantastic. The bottom line: Prioritize high rank hunts, separate parts of Rathalos, and the drop rate is the same between capture and carve.



  • Rathalos Plate Low Rank
    • Target Rewards: 2%
    • Capture Rewards: 3%
    • Broken part reward: 4% (head), 2% (back)
    • Sculpt: 1% (body), 3% (tail)
    • Dropped Materials: 1%
  • High Rank Rathalos Plate
    • Target Rewards: 5%
    • Capture Rewards: 5%
    • Broken part reward: 7% (head), 4% (back)
    • Sculpt: 3% (body), 5% (tail)
    • Dropped Materials: 3%

As you can see, the Rathalos Plate is rare, even at high rank. Don't be surprised if it takes multiple hunts to catch just one. But, that's kind of the point of Monster Hunter Rise, isn't it? Start hunting and don't forget to break Rathalos parts to increase your chances!
