Lucent Nargakuga, a new monster from the free update for Monster Hunter Rise, was revealed at the Capcom Showcase on June 13th. A variant of the fan-favorite Nargakuga, this monster has arrived along with new monsters of rare species, monsters of special species, and a new location.
When will Lucent Nargacuga for MHR: Sunbreak be released?
Lucent Nargacuga will be added to a free update in August 2022. However, the exact date has not been confirmed.
Who is Lucent Nargakuga?
Lucent Nargakuga is a Nargakuga variant that first appeared in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Classified as a Lunar Swift Wyvern, it differs from the regular Nargakuga in that it has the ability to turn invisible, his tail hiss without being enraged, and perform a double tail slash. Overall, this makes him a formidable opponent.
What is Forlorn Arena?
The Abandoned Arena is a location first used in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, where it was known as Tower 3. It has also appeared in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter Generations. This is traditionally where Lucent Nargacuga, Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos were hunted, so it is expected that they will also be added in the August update.
Lucent Nargacuga armor and weapons
Lucent Nargacuga materials have been used to craft Lambent Armor and Eclipse Weapons in previous games. Lambent Armor has traditionally had Carving Master and Challenger armor skills. The Eclipse Weapon is a poison weapon with very high accuracy. They are expected to be similar in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.
