Fucium Ore in Monster Hunter Rise
Fucium Ore MHR

The Fucium Ore is a precious material in Monster Hunter Rise. It is a rarity six ore that you can carry 99 units once at one time. You can also sell each piece for 1020 zenny. The ore helps you craft and upgrades your weapons so that you can become more of a goliath. The increased stats from the weapon will enable you to emerge victorious from your fights.

As you progress through the game, you will realize how the monsters will keep getting more tenacious and harder to take down. That is because the game boosts its difficulty as you reach a higher rank. You will need to make some changes to ensure your survival at that level of intensity.

You will need some excellent armor that can fend off the monster’s attack and some weapons which can allow you to win the fights. That is where the Fucium Ore MHR comes into play. The ore will help you craft and upgrade your equipment so you can survive these high-octane battles and fight to your full capabilities.

To make use of the Fucium Ore in MHR, you will first need to know where to find it.

Location of the Fucium Ore

The Fucium Ore can be found in three different places in Monster Hunter Rise. These locations aren’t always unlocked, so you might have to grind a little before heading there and farm the ore. For two of these locations, you will need to complete five stars quest, while for the last one, the difficulty is raised, and you are challenged with a six-star quest.

Let’s thoroughly review these three locations to ensure you have the best chance at finding the ore.

Sandy Plains

First up we the sandy plains. There are five fucium ore mining areas for you to use. However, to mine these ores, you will need to visit this place during the five-star Gathering Hub Quest. You can take a look at the picture below to ensure that you are at the right place. But for your sake, I will explain the areas a little, and you can even watch a video version here.

To find the most fucium ore or at least have the chance to, head left of Area 5. There are almost three crops here that you can mine to get a fucium ore. Besides that, you can look for the fucium ore to the right of Area 2 or the Bottom left of Area 10. Lastly, you can head towards the top right of Area 12 and the sandy plains to try your luck at finding the Fucium Ore.

Lava Caverns

The following location we have for you is the Lava Cavern. This area contains an abundance of crops for you to mine and get your hands on some fucium ore. This map has the most mining outcrops, seven to be exact, so your chances of getting what you are looking for an increase. However, this area isn’t generally unlocked, so you will have to complete the six-star Gathering Hub Quest to open it.

You can look around area 6 to find crops both towards its bottom right and top right. Next, you can head to the furthest right of the map to Area 14. You can also find the fucium ore if you head slightly left of Area 10 and then continue heading towards area 11. Exploring these areas will give you better odds of obtaining a whole stack of fucium ore.

Flooded Forest

Lastly, we have the Flooded Forest. This area is also enriched in fucium ore, with a total of six mining outcrops for you to exploit. Like the locations before, you will have to complete a quest to unlock it. You will have to complete the five-star Gathering Hub Quest for the Flooded Forest. Trust me; it will be worth it as it will give you access to many fucium ores, as you can see below.

Location of the Fucium Ore

You can find most of the mining outcrops around Areas 9,10, and 11. Your primary focus needs to be on Area 11 as there are a bunch of crops there. You can even look under Area 8 to find more mining crops. Lastly, you can look towards the bottom left of the map under Area 3. There are a couple of locations down there that you don’t want to miss out on.

These are all the locations where you can find some fucium ore. However, the drop rate of these items isn’t 100%, so it is up to your luck if you can get it. Still, I’ll give you some tips to help you mine the fucium ore efficiently.

Tips For Mining Ore

Your mining luck is tied with your Geology skill in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak. You will need to ensure that your Geology level is leveled up to get better gains for your adventures. Once your reach Geology skill level 3, all your ores numbers will be increased.

However, fret not if you don’t know how to increase your Geology skill.

Increasing your Geology Level

Firstly, if you wear Leather pants and Leather Gloves, your Geology level will increase to level 2. This is very straightforward as all you have to do is equip these items. Next up, make your way to Kangero the Merchant. Once there, craft a talisman. If you equip this talisman alongside the leather pants and gloves, your level will increase exponentially to level 3.

Increasing your Geology Level will be a massive help to you. It will increase the number of fucium ores that you will mine. It will help you to grind less and save you some effort but still be able to reap the same rewards. In higher ranks, where you will constantly need fucium ore, this geology level will be a huge help.

Now that you are all done with how to mine the ore, you need to know where you can reap the rewards of your hard work. So let’s take a look at the uses of fucium ore.


The primary purpose of all ores, including the fucium ore, is to help you craft and upgrade weapons. However, even among those, the fucium ore stands high due to its effectiveness in crafting high-level weapons that will make it easier for you to defeat tough opponents. Although weapons are the main focus, the fucium ore also enables you to craft jewels and armor. So let’s go through each one individually.

Crafting Jewels

Jewels are potent tools for some players depending on the perk they grant. You can use ores to craft jewels like everything else, causing players to grind hard to obtain certain ores. However, you need to know what ore you need for which jewel. In the case of the fucium ore, you can use a single unit of it to craft the Physique Jewel 2.

This Jewel is extremely helpful in your fights as you continue to raise your rank. It provides you with the Constitution perk, which reduces your stamina usage.

This enables you to fight for longer durations and eventually win them out. The cooldown for your swings reduces as you have more stamina at your disposal, which can be the deciding factor in a fight.

Crafting Equipment

Lastly, you can use the fucium ore to craft equipment for yourself that will help you throughout your playthrough.
