Hopping Skewers in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Explained

It is almost customary for hunters to dig into Dango before going off on a hunt, as a good meal can provide useful buffs that can shift things in your favor. However, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak adds the option of using Hopping Skewers instead of the normal option. The key difference is that it will affect the skill levels as well as the activation of Dango skills.

Depending on what you are looking for, levels 1 to 4 will bring about different effects from skills. Choosing the normal skewers will retain its activation chance for a Dango skill at level 2 reliably, whereas opting for the Hopping Skewers paves the way for higher Dango skill levels at the cost of activation chance, based on the order of the Dango.

If you choose the top for a level 4 effect, the activation chance is greatly reduced, whereas at the bottom, a level 1 effect will have the greatest activation chance. Hunters will need to consider if it is worth taking the risk of using Hopping Skewers, or relying on the more consistent effects of the normal skewers.
