Being a traditional Japanese role-playing game, players will need a lot of money in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin to purchase all the items they need. Unlike most games, however, enemies do not drop money, called Zenny in the game, upon defeat, forcing players to accomplish other tasks to get it.
Here’s how to farm Zenny in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
How to Farm Money in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
The quickest and most common way of obtaining Zenny in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is by selling items. During the course of your adventure, you will find a lot of different items by checking out Gathering Spots. While most items are used to craft and upgrade weapons, you do not need to hoard massive amounts of them, so you can sell those that you do not need for money.
Additionally, by checking out Gathering Spots, you may also find some special items whose only use is to be sold as trade-in items. Sell them as soon as you get them to get a nice amount of Zenny. Rare Gathering Spots have a higher chance of yielding rare items that can be sold for a lot of money, so make sure to explore each location as thoroughly as you can.
Speaking of selling items, you should also sell all the gear that you no longer need. As you will be switching weapons and armors quite often in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, you can make a decent amount of money by selling gear you no longer use.
Sell Monster Parts
Monster Parts are extremely important in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, as they are used to craft new gear. If you do not need to do so in the immediate future, or if you have a high quantity of any of them in your inventory, you should consider selling Monster Parts for a profit. By checking the Monsterpedia, you can learn which parts can be farmed from any monster you have encountered, allowing you to come up with a solid farming strategy, in case you are strapped for money.
Always Use Prayers and Charms
Prayers and Charms grant a variety of different bonuses that can speed you your money farming considerably. The Gathering Prayer, for example, increases the chance of finding rare items, while the Selling Charm increases the selling value of all items. Mix and match them depending on your farming method to make it more efficient.
