How to Get Dragonhusk Shards in Monster Hunter Rise

To get Dragonhusk Shards in Monster Hunter Rise you need to head to certain High-Rank areas and scout for bone piles. Every time you interact with them, you get a chance of finding Dragonhusk Shards. If you need them, head to these locations:

  • Flooded Forest (sections 7 and 13)
  • Frost Islands (sections 1, 8, 9 and 12)
  • Lava Caverns (sections 2, 5, 8, and 10)

All the bone piles here have a chance to drop Dragonhusk shards, so keep farming around. If you’re having trouble finding them, check the map and head to more wild areas where they tend to be more common. Also make sure to check the Meowcenaries in the Buddy Plaza and see if there’s an option to check bone piles in any of these locales!
