During their time in Monster Hunter Rise, players will have to gather a lot of different items that can be used as material to forge new weapons and armor. All this collecting is what makes the Monster Hunter Rise experience so fun, but also a little frustrating, especially if you do not know how to find a specific material.

Here’s how to get one of these materials, the Lightcrystal, and which weapons and armors you can forge with it.

Where to Get Lightcrystal

Getting the Lightcrystal isn’t particularly difficult, but it can definitely be time consuming. The Lightcrystal can be obtained in both Low Rank and High Rank Quests in Mining Outcrops in the Flooded Forest. White Mining Outcrops have a higher chance of yielding Lightcrystal, and you can highlight their location on the map by opening it, press the X button and select Mining Outcrops in the Material 2 list.

The White Mining Outcrops in the Flooded Forest are located in areas 2, 3, 7 and 10 of the map, and a higher number of them can spawn if there is an Upsurge. To learn if this is the case, you need to press the R button to check the Locale info when you are selecting an expedition to embark on.
