What Is Wyvern Riding?

A Way To Mount Monsters

Wyvern Riding

Wyvern Riding is a new form of action players can take in Monster Hunter Rise. It involves mounting a monster and using it to move around! It's also possible to even attack monsters while mounted like this.

Time Limit On Riding

Time Limit On Riding

Wyvern Riding has a time limit to it - when you deal damage to enemies while mounted you'll see your timer increase. Conversely, taking damage will lower your remaining time.

Charge Your Gauge To Unleash A Powerful Attack

Wyvern Riding Gauge

It's possible to fill up your Wyvern Riding Gauge by evading enemy attacks at the right time. Filling up your gauge will let you unleash a powerful attack called a "Mounted Punisher", dealing significant damage to the enemy.

How To Ride Monsters

Put Enemies In A Mountable State

By approaching an enemy that has been put in a susceptible condition known as the "Mountable State", the Ride Wyvern button will appear.

How To Make Enemies Susceptible

  • Deal damage using the Wirebug
  • Target a monster that has already been downed by another monster
  • Use certain Endemic Life

How To Attack / Move While Wyvern Riding

Movement / Attack Controls

Move - Left Control Stick + (R)

Wyvern Riding allows you to freely move around while mounted by using the left control stick while holding down R. It's also possible to attack and evade.

Light Attack - (X)

A swift basic attack. Pressing the X button repeatedly will let you launch a series of attacks.

Strong Attack - (A)

A slower, lumbering attack with a wide animation but proportionally higher damage. You can also chain this by pressing the button repeatedly.

Evade / Emergency Evade / Parry - (B)

Wyvern Riding

It's possible to regularly evade attacks, or perform an Emergency Evade. Also, dodging at just the right moment will provide you with a bonus to your Wyvern Riding gauge. It's also possible to "parry" enemy attacks if you time your dodge well, temporarily flinching/stunning them.

Note that Emergency Evades will use up one Wirebug gauge.

Launch Monster - (Y)

Wyvern Riding

Running a monster you're currently riding into a wall by pressing Y will end your riding experience. It's also possible to destroy walls or down monsters if you aim a sufficiently large creature into them!

You can also chain launches by pressing the B button right when your monster collides with a wall. This will allow you to stay on the monster and keep dealing damage to it. However, it will cost you a wire gauge each time!

Mounted Punisher - (X + A)

Once your Wyvern Riding gauge is filled up to the max, you can unleash a Mounted Punisher attack. This attack has a time limit however, so after some time passes, you'll be dismounted.

It's also possible to down the monster by pressing X and A while your gauge is full.

Different Monsters Have Different Attack Patterns

Some monsters will have different combinations of attack patterns with the L button. It'll be worth your while to try mounting a wide variety of monsters and see what they have to offer!
