What are Eroded Skeletons in Monster Hunter Rise?

Eroded Skeletons are a crafting resource you gain from looting environmental features in Monster Hunter Rise.

If you were thinking that this would be a momentary reprieve from the grisly business of hunting monsters, though, you’re out of luck. Eroded Skeletons are found in Bone Piles, and the game is very explicit about how they got there. Corpses were buried in the sand and have been worn away gradually by years of wind erosion.

Where to find Eroded Skeletons in Monster Hunter Rise

You can find the Bone Piles you need to loot in many locations around the Sandy Plains.

Appropriately, they are largely found in particularly sandy areas. The northern half of the Sandy Plains in particular features a number of hotspots where you can find Bone Piles, though they can be found in areas 1 and 4 as well.

How to farm Eroded Skeletons most efficiently in Monster Hunter Rise

Eroded Skeletons are quite easy to farm, due to their generous spawn likelihood, and the fact that they’re obtained by looting rather than hunting.

However, there are a couple of things you can do to make obtaining them even easier.

First — as ever when your main focus is gathering crafting resources — visit their location as part of an Expedition Tour rather than a hunt. This gives you ample time and freedom to gather as many as you need.

Secondly, eating Raisin d’Etre Dango before heading out gives you a powerful buff that will help you in your search. It reduces the time it takes resources to respawn, allowing you to return to the same Bone Piles more frequently to gather more Eroded Skeletons.
