Monster Hunter Rise: How to Get Frostsack

If you want to make ice cold weapons and armor, Frost Sac is certainly needed for a while to farm, which makes it a thoroughly desirable material Monster Hunter Rise. Much like the rest of its ‘Sac’ cousins, it’s obtainable by hunting down large monsters, with the first appearing in 4 * Low Rank Quests. Below you can find exactly which monster it is.

How and where to find Frostsack in Monster Hunter Rise

Starting with the word “Frost” you would expect a monster found on Frost Isles to be the owner of such an item, and you would be perfectly correct. The classic Barioth is the monster you are looking for, which is a dangerous monster to say the least. Armed with deadly fangs and a speed that matches his intimidating looks, a Barioth is not to be underestimated.

While the chances of getting a Frost Sack out of it aren’t bad based on the table above, the reason this material is difficult to get out of is because of the difficulty level of the monster. Especially for players new to the series, taking out low ranked Barioth can be very difficult, even more so when you have to farm some of them to get the amount of sacs you want. Monster Hunter Rise has a good number of handcrafted items that need this as an ingredient. Unfortunately, to grind efficiently, you need to practice this fight a little.

That said, Frost Sac has additional chances of falling if you capture Barioth instead of killing it. So, you can try this to increase the chances of getting one as an additional reward. Not all monsters offer bonus chances for dropped items when captured. So use this to your advantage. Good luck with your hunts and make sure you bring some firearms into the fight.
