In Monster Hunter Rise you can often come across various different lifeforms known as Endemic Life. These come in many shapes and sizes from small species of bird that will increase your health, stamina, attack, or defense until the end of your quest. They are known as permabuffers. Alongside permabuffers are tempbuffers, hunting helpers, and ensnaring life. You can use all of these to get the upper hand against the dangerous monsters that roam the lands. The expansion, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, plans to add even more Endemic Life to help you defeat those ferocious monsters.
|Morphed Wirebugs||Marionette Spider|
Two new types of Wirebugs whose shine is more brilliant than the regular variants. The first one is the Ruby Wirebug, which will increase the damage that you do with Mounted Punishers, while the Gold Wirebug will cause Wyvern Riding attacks to drop more materials. If you have both at the same time, it’ll become easier to initiate Wyvern Riding, and your Wirebug Gauge recovery speed will be boosted!
Picking up the Ruby Wirebug
Picking up the Gold Wirebug
Similar to the Puppet Spider, these small creatures are covered in thin blue hairs with an orange pattern embedded on their body. When picked up, you can access them via the action bar, and use their silk to take control of a monster. Once the spider has attached its silk to said monster you can tug on the silk to send the monster flying in any direction. This acts similarly to when you send a monster into a wall when mounting them.
Marionette Spider in Action
Beetles that can be found in star-shaped clusters. Often found clinging to walls, and once they’ve found a location that they like, they’ll remain there for a long time. Their hard shells are covered in a dust-like substance that reacts to external stimuli. If they come into contact with a monster, the dust detonates causing a small explosion which can hurt its prey. Thankfully, the beetle’s hard shells will protect them from the blast, and they will simply leave the location.
Starburst Bug in Action
A type of Squid that has a dangerous sharp, pointed body that often spends its time in the waters that surround the Jungle. Although these may look dangerous at first glance, they have no instinct to fight unless a large monster enters their waters. They normally come as a school of squid, and when a large monster gets near them, they’ll all attack them in tandem.
Spearsquid in Action
One of many species of hermit crabs that can be found in the Jungle. Due to their poor eyesight, these creatures prefer a damp, dark place to avoid the sunlight because of this. Although these have a beautiful gleam of a purple crystal, they can be found to be aggressive to anything that invades their personal space. Thankfully, their bad eyesight means they can only notice creatures of a considerable size like monsters.
Slicercrab in Action
The Thornytoads are small amphibians found in the swampy forests of the Citadel. They have elastic tongues that can attach to other creatures. Known as a ferocious breed, they’ll try to devour anything they can get their tongues on to. Once they’ve attached to a monster, they’ll release a gastric acid that can make even large monsters recoil.
