Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Best Dango Combinations for All Weapons

By
Matt Chard

Before going on a hunt, you can eat Dango that’ll give you various skills and buffs that’ll make the hunt a bit easier in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. You can choose three Dango flavors when you eat, but some Dango favor different weapons. This page will show you some of the best combinations to take depending on your weapon. For the most part, these are universal, but some other weapons like the ranged weapons will have different Dango’s.

This is an ideal damage combination. You could add a Spud-Luck or Blastslash instead of Shifter.

Best Dango’s for Damage

This set of Dango’s will offer you the highest amount of damage increase. As it focuses on purely damage, you may only want to use this set if you’re comfortable with the fight.

Icon Dango Activation Chance Effects
MintIatureDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Mint-iature 70% Dango Booster: Temporarily increases attack and defense after consumption, once. Grants 9 attack and 15 defense for 10 minutes at the start of the quest. The Level 4 effect increases this to 15 attack and 30 defense while using Hopping Skewers.
InvigoratingDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Invigorating 50% Dango Fighter: Reduces stamina depletion when evading, blocking, or doing certain other actions.
SpudLuckDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Spud-luck 90% Dango Weakener: Large monsters encountered on quests have an increased chance of being weaker than normal. At level 4, it changes to “Far more likely”.
EasyBreezyDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Easy-Breezy 50% Dango Shifter: Performing a Switch Skill Swap slightly recovers health. This skill is on here for when it’s paired with the armor skill Dereliction. Dereliction drains your health to increase your attack when using a Switch Skill Swap. This helps nullify the cons of Dereliction. At level 4, it reduces initial stamina consumption too.
EasyBreezyDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Blastslash 70% Dango Polisher: Speeds up weapon sharpening. Dango Pyro: Upgrades Large Barrel Bombs to Mega Barrel Bombs. Quicker weapon sharpening means more time to fight which equals quicker hunts. Having more Mega Barrel Bombs to place when a monster is down or asleep equals more damage.

This is an ideal defensive combination. You could add an Easy-Breezy instead of Hide-and-Seek.

Best Dango’s for Defense

This set of Dango’s will offer you the highest amount of defense. This is ideally used on tougher monsters like the Afflicted or monsters with attacks that you’re not familiar with.

Icon Dango Activation Chance Effects
SuperBestnutDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Super Bestnut 85% Dango Defender (Hi) High possibility that damage taken will be decreased. The Level 4 effect greatly decreases the damage taken while using Hopping Skewers.
SelfKelpDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Self-Kelp 80% Dango Defender: Whenever you take a set amount of damage, damage from the next hit is slightly reduced. The Level 4 effect greatly decreases the damage taken while using Hopping Skewers.
HideandSeekDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Hide-and-Seek 60% Super Recovery Dango: Gradually recovers health over time when discovered by a large monster. This is a great skill to have as it’ll slowly regenerate your health. What makes this great is you can leave it to heal chip damage which saves you wasting potions on them which can put yourself in a compromising position when you use said potions.
EasyBreezyDangoMonsterHunterRiseSunbreak.png Easy-Breezy 50% Dango Shifter: Performing a Switch Skill Swap slightly recovers health. Another nice way to heal chip damage.

Best Dango’s for Hammer, Hunting Horn, and Sword and Shield (Shield Build)

The blunt weapons can use the damage Dango combination mentioned above, or you could make use of the Dizzybloom Dango to take advantage of their stunning capabilities. The Sword and Shield is only put here for the raw shield builds.

Best Dango Combinations for Gunlance

The Fruitflash Dango is fantastic for a shelling Gunlance playstyle.

The Gunlance is put on its own as it can make use of some other Dango’ that a normal melee build won’t get much use of other than specific builds. If you’re playing a predominant poke style build, you can stick with the normal damage combination. If you’re using a wide-shelling type style, use this combination.

Best Dango Combinations for Dual Swords

DualSwords are reliant on their stamina, this is where the Invigorating, and Pinea-Full Dangos shine.

As Dual Swords are a lot more Stamina reliant these are also put on their own. Ideally you should choose Mint-iature, one of Pinea-full or Invigorating, and any of Spud-Luck, Blastslash, or Easy-Breezy depending on your build.
