Monster Hunter Rise High Rank – How to Unlock

Like previous Monster Hunter games, Monster Hunter Rise features Low-Rank Quests and High-Rank Quests. High Rank typically means access to monsters not seen in the game’s Low-Rank quests, as well as the ability to obtain High-Rank exclusive materials and equipment. This also includes the ability to craft decorations.

Unlocking High Rank is rather straightforward, as it’s something you get to as you progress through the game, but it’s worth noting that High Rank only exists in Hub Quests, not Village Quests.

In order to unlock High Rank, you simply need to reach 4★ quests in the Hub. This means finishing all the Key Quests and Urgent Quests in 1★, 2★, and 3★ quests.

Alternatively, you can unlock High Rank by finishing Special License Tests in the Village. Special License Tests are quests that allow you to skip the lower ★ quests in Hub if you only or mostly progress through Village Quests.

The purpose of this is so that players don’t have to repeat similar or the same quests in lower ★ Hub that they did in Village if they do not wish to.

To unlock Special License Tests, you will need to reach a certain level in Village Quests while also having the Hub Quests below a certain level. Finishing each Special License Test will increase your Hub Quest rank by 1★.

Requirements

Special License Test 2Finish three 5★ Village Key Quests if at 2★ Hub Quests.
Special License Test 2Finish three 6★ Village Key Quests if at3★ Hub Quests.
