Monster Hunter Rise was released for the Switch a couple weeks back and has quickly become one of the best action games you can get on the console right now. It’s one of the most accessible entries in the game as well, but still features a few mechanics that other little details that might seem confusing to newcomers, such as armor set attributes. Here’s everything you need to know about what Fortunate Effect does in Monster Hunter Rise.
Monster Hunter Rise Fortunate Effect Explained
If you’ve sunk a good amount of time in Monster Hunter Rise already, you’ve probably encountered the Wind Serpent Ibushi and the Thunder Serpent Narwa. Both of these monsters will allow you to craft a new full set of gear with stacking effects if you equip the entire set. Depending on which set you go with, you can get either Thunder or Wind Alignment.
In addition to that, both sets will also give you the Fortunate Effect bonus if you craft and equip the entire thing. The game never explains what Fortunate Effect actually is, though, so we’re here to help you out.
It functions similarly to the Good Luck effect you could get from certain pieces back in Monster Hunter World, or Great Luck in other games, and basically, it gives you a chance of getting increased rewards for whatever activities you take part in in Monster Hunter Rise. It sounds pretty good on paper, but overall, Fortunate Effect doesn’t seem worth it becuse the entire armor set from either elder dragon is pretty weak.
You’d likely be better off mixing and matching other pieces, or going with an entirely different set unless you really want that Fortunate Effect bonus.
That’s all you need to know about what Fortunate Effect does in Monster Hunter Rise. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
