Daimyo Hermitaur in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

This guide will cover the monster’s weaknesses and the materials it drops in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

All Daimyo Hermitaur weaknesses

The Daimyo Hermitauri s a defensive creature capable of using its large shell and claws to protect itself during combat. When it enters this defensive state, you will want to use a Sonic Bomb, allowing you to force it out of this stance, allowing you to hit the more critical parts of this monster’s body. Although Slashing weapons work well against it, we highly recommend using a Blunt-based weapon or elemental weapons that do Fire or Thunder damage.

These are all of the Daimyo Hermitaur’s weaknesses.
