Pearl Hide is a material that can be carved or dropped from a Khezu in Monster Hunter Rise, specifically from a High Rank Khezu.

High Rank Khezu can only be hunted in Hub Quests or in Frost Islands expeditions, but only when it’s reported to spawn in the area.

Tips and Tricks for Easy Pearl Hide Farming

Maximize your Pearl Hide hunt with these tips:

  • Focus on breaking the legs for a guaranteed Pearl Hide.
    • Khezu legs are weak to severing damage, so use weapons like the Long Sword, Dual Blades, or Sword and Shield that can do low sweeping attacks.
    • Khezu are weak to fire, so also consider using weapons with fire element as elemental damage contribute to part breaking.
    • Projectile damage is almost as strong as severing damage when attacking Khezu legs.
  • Use shock traps to get longer windows to attack the legs.
  • For mounting, try to crash Khezu to the walls to get as many shiny drops as possible.
