In Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruins, money allows the player to purchase a variety of in-game items, while experience is responsible for raising the level of a personal Monster. In today’s guide, we’ll walk you through the most effective farming (or grinding, if you prefer) money and XP methods in Monster Hunter Stories 2.
How to farm money and experience in Monster Hunter Stories 2
Monster Hunter Stories is strikingly different from its counterparts from the main Monster Hunter series. Firstly, the games in this series are much more focused on the plot and characters. Secondly, battles with monsters now take place not in real time, but in turn-based mode. Simply put, the Stories series may not be to the taste of some fans of the original Monster Hunter.
In addition to the combat system, other game mechanics have undergone changes, for example, earning money and gaining experience. Don’t worry, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is not a hardcore monster hunting simulator, so you shouldn’t have much difficulty.
Method # 1 Completing side quests
Perhaps the easiest way to make money quickly for Zenny (the game’s currency) is to complete all sorts of Side Quests, which can be accessed through the bulletin boards located in the villages. To make some quick money, we recommend that you start farming the “Rollie-Polly Problems” quest. In this quest you need to defeat 6 conchu (yellow) – as a reward you will receive 1200 zenny, 20 experience points and 2 insect carcasses.
Once you get to a high enough level, you can complete this quest much faster by using a convenient feature like auto-complete. It is important to note that in Monster Hunter Stories 2, quests are allowed to be replayed as many times as you want. To put it simply, theoretically, you can practice farming almost indefinitely.
Method # 2 Selling items
During your wanderings around the world of Monster Hunter Stories 2, you will stumble upon a huge variety of various objects and parts of monsters. Let’s be honest: most of these items are only for sale. At first, it will seem to you that each item is extremely important, that at some point in the game you will certainly need it, but this is absolutely not the case. Sell all the items that seem useless to you and make a lot of money!
Method # 3 Execution of tests
If you are solely interested in experience, then Challenges are your choice! Compared to side quests, such missions give the player small rewards, but they take much, much less time to complete. Of the Trials available in the game, I would like to highlight the “Trial of Larinot” – the easiest place for farming experience.
Method # 4 Searching for chests
In the world of Monster Hunter Stories 2, you can find a bunch of chests that are filled with a variety of values, including Zenny. If you try to look for chests, you will quickly get rich.
Of course, there are other ways to farm, but they are less effective than the ones we described above. Good luck with your adventures in Monster Hunter Stories 2!
