Guide to Diablos in Monster Hunter Rise – Weakness, Drops, Weapons, and more

Massive monsters make tough gear.

Diablos is a terror no matter which game he’s in, and things are no different in Monster Hunter Rise. His attacks deal massive damage, cover a wide area, and are heavily resistant to damage from anything other than the highest-end gear. Thankfully, weapons made from Diablos parts have some of the best Raw damage in the mid-game, and the armor is fantastic for builds where shields play a role, like Lance, Gunlance, and Charge Blade. Diablos gear can take you into the endgame for specific weapons, though Elder Dragon sets start to take precedence the deeper you go.

All Diablos Weaknesses

Diablos is weak primarily to Ice and Blunt damage, so pack an Ice Hammer and go a-bonking. You can still use Slashing and projectile weapons, but don’t expect them to do the sheer volume of damage as something with a blunt edge. Fire damage is entirely ineffective, and Thunder isn’t great. Focus on Ice, Water, and Dragon. Diablos is also weak to the Paralysis status, and both Blast and Iceblight are good options.

Diablos Low-Rank Material Drops

While slaying Diablos for his carved parts is usually the best option, his capture reward rates are high enough that catching him isn’t a bad choice either. Break as many parts as you can and pick up all the shinies Diablos drops. His horns break twice, one for each horn, and the tail is liable to come flying off if you do enough damage. Remember that the horns, wings, and tail are heavily calcified, making them resistant enough to damage that light weapons will bounce right off. Use Silkbind skills to deal with those parts properly.

Diablos High-Rank Material Drops

Diablos weapons and armor don’t have as much universal utility as Nargacuga gear, but there are a few better options in the mid-game for Lance, Charge Blade, and Gunlance. Guard and Offensive Guard are key for those weapon types, and Diablos gear has them in spades.
