A new event quest was added in Monster Hunter Rise on June 25. This rank 7 quest, "Almudron: Fashion Victim", consists of hunting an Almudron to obtain Wild Dark Leather to craft Black Leather pants for your character.
To get the quest, you need to talk to Senri the Mailman, by selecting the Add-on Content. Make sure you have installed the 3.0 update before trying to download it. The quest takes place in the Sandy Plains and lasts about 50 minutes. It will require you to hunt an Almudron.
The Almudron use three distinct positions during the fight :
- When he is on his back and partially submerged, he will use his tail to oozes a strange golden fluid. When enraged, he produces more fluid, turning the mud golden. When you see gold, don't step on it: the effects of the mud are multiple and can easily be fatal.
- The second position of the Almudron is when he on his 4 legs. In this case, its movements are rather conventional, they are then similar to those of the Mizutsune, without the water jets or the bubbles. Be wary of the tail, the paws, and the mouth strike.
- When the Almudron adopts its third position, things will get tougher. He now holds a huge ball of mud in its tail and uses it as a devastating weapon. Do your best to dodge it by staying mobile and being ready to dodge. His attacks are overpowering with his tail, but they also require more time to recover and attack again. Attack the tail when you have the chance: if you do enough damage to it, it will explode.
Quick repositioning and stamina management are the key to the fight, so we recommend that you always bring a full stack of Nulberries into the hunt. You'll need them.
As its name implies, Almudron spends a great deal of time lurking in mud—at least until it emerges to smother approaching prey. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which Almudron uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under. When enraged, it produces more fluid, turning the mud golden. When you see gold, watch out!
By completing this quest for the first time, you will have the opportunity to obtain an item needed to make Black Leather pants. Also, the reward money is 14040z.
Layered armors are a specific kind of armor that can only be obtained from events, craft, or DLC Packs. Just like in Monster Hunter World, these armors can be used on top of your actual gearset. By doing so you can change the look of your character or buddies for something you judge more appealing without worrying about losing stats or gem slots.
User @CherryBoowy even found a way to make this armor look like blue jeans.
