Revival of the Congalala

Congalalas, which first appeared in Monster Hunter 2 and last appeared in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, will return in Monster Hunter XX.

Details on the “Renkin Style” Hunting Style

  • The Renkin Style is an unconventional hunting style that excels in support.
  • By wielding a special barrel called the “Great Renkin Barrel,” you can create “Renkin Items.” You can add an item up to five times to Renkin.
  • You can use “Great Renkin Barrel” by selecting items. It’s not in your item pouch.
  • As the Renkin gauge fills you’ll be able to “Great Renkin Barrel” while in Renkin Style. You can fill the gauge stock up to five.

Items You Can Only Make in Renkin Style

  • Renkin Food: Stamina will rise to its greatest value. You will use this more often than other food items.

  • Renkin Earplug: Consumable that protects from a large monster roar once.
  • Renkin Speed Medicine: Medicine that makes you throw Great Renkin Barrels fast and increases speed in Renkin Style.
  • Renkin Increase: By mixing a particular item, that items quantity will increase.
