How To Beat Pyre Rakna-Kadaki in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki is a Temnoceran in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak that Hunters will first encounter during the Key Hunting Hub Quest, "A Mighty Need." This Temnoceran is a Threat Level 7 with Fire as its Element and is capable of inflicting targets with Blast and Fireblight, slowly draining HP over time. Accordingly, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki is immune to Fire, Thunder, and Dragon damage in Monster Hunter Rise. However, its characteristics make it weak to Ice and Water-affinity weaponry. The Temnoceran's parts that take the most damage from Hunter attacks are its Head, Claws, and Legs.

With the weaknesses of the Pyre Rakna-Kadaki in mind, it is recommended that Hunters use weapons that can inflict Stun or Waterblight since these two ailments are most effective. Slaying or capturing this Temnoceran will reward players with the Pyre-Kadaki Cortex, Pyre-Kadaki Silk+, Pyre-Kadaki Dull Glowgut, Pyre-Kadaki Hardclaw, Pyre-Kadaki Spike+, Monster Essence, and Queen Substance. The best way to get the Pyre-Kadaki Hardclaw is by smashing Pyre Rakna-Kadaki's Claws, and breaking its Legs is the optimal method for acquiring Pyre-Kadaki Silk+.
