The Pyrantula usually lurks in areas three and four of the Citadel map. They can also be found in the Master Rank version of the Lava Caverns, but the Citadel is the best bet to farm these creatures.

The Pyrantula aren’t fragile like Vespoids, so feel free to use powerful attacks to take them out quickly. These are the items they drop when defeated.

  • Pyrantula Maroon Thread – 52% carve chance.
  • Tough Claw – 17% carve chance.
  • Monster Essence – 31% carve chance.

Unlike most other small wildlife, the Pyrantula only has one unique resource. Pyrantula Maroon Thread isn’t used often for armor or weapon upgrades. Instead, this rare resource is used for crafting powerful decorations centered around blastblight and fire status effects. Monster Essence is also a valuable resource for crafting many Master Rank armor sets and weapons.

Frequent trips to the Citadel will net you about six or seven per run. Ensure to defeat these creatures quickly, as a larger monster is almost always lurking nearby. Once you reach Master Rank three, you can send Meowcenaries to the Citadel during hunting trips. Use them judiciously to help you amass a healthy supply of the Pyrantula resources.
