The ending of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak introduces several new monsters and the ability to craft Rarity 10 weapons and armor. Most Rarity 10 weapons require Afflicted materials to craft, which you’ll get from Afflicted monsters in Anomaly quests. Obtaining Afflicted Blood is not immediately available to farm and will take you a few hours of post-game work to unlock.
Find out the best ways to get Afflicted Blood in this guide.

You need access to two-star Anomaly quests to farm Afflicted Blood in Sunbreak. When you first unlock Anomaly Quests in Sunbreak, you will only have access to one star deals against the weakest monsters in the game: Great Izuchi, Great Baggi, etc. These monsters mainly offer Afflicted Bone. It’s not until you unlock MR 20 after your fight against Master Rank Ibushi that the two-star anomaly missions become available.
Four monsters provide Afflicted Blood, all of which have a 20% chance to grant it:
- afflicted tetronodon
- afflicted bishaton
- afflicted khezu
- Afflicted Daimyo Hermitaur
In order to receive Afflicted Blood, you must break the parts of these monsters. The material is not available as a reward for carving, aiming, or capturing. The number you receive on the mission completion screen directly correlates to the number of parts you broke during the quest.
Best way to farm afflicted blood
Of the four sources of Afflicted Blood, we recommend farming Afflicted Tetranadon. It has a lot of parts to break and is the slowest option with the best hit zones (areas for yellow damage numbers and weak spots). It also doesn’t apply any negative status effects and has no parts that will cause your weapon to ricochet and leave you vulnerable.
You can then turn around and use the Tetronodon parts to fuel your Melding Pot Talisman crop, as most of the equipment, decorations, and other items that can be crafted in the late game don’t use Tetranadon parts. They’re not worth a lot of melting points, but if you’re looking for a lot of Afflicted Blood, you’ll have plenty of materials after a few hunts.
