On top of being an RPG with a rich story, Tales of Arise also has a complex crafting system. This can be utilized to create many powerful pieces of equipment in the game. However, crafting these requires rare materials, and one of these is the hard-to-find Megafauna Bone. So, if you need it, where should you start looking?
Where to find the Megafauna Bone in Tales of Arise
The Megafauna Bone is a material used in forging some of the more powerful equipment in Tales of Arise. This also means the material is hard to come by, and you’re not likely to find it until much later in the game. One sure way to get this material is to complete Shionne’s Solo Ultimate training in the Training Ground. Completing her Solo Ultimate training will award two Megafauna Bones, along with 99 Rice, two Phantom Fangs and two Dragon Scales.
Two of these are enough in crafting Alphen’s Atonement Edge. Conversely, you can use one for crafting Kisara’s Red Shield and one for Dolahim’s Supreme Tenebris Staff. However, this is not enough to craft one of Shionne’s more powerful weapons, the Assault Shot. For this weapon, you will need three Megafauna Bones. Given that completing Shionne’s Solo Ultimate training only yields two of these, this means it’s time to go hunting.
Two monsters that can drop this material reside in The Wedge. Both Armatus Bos and Armatus Equus can drop Megafauna Bones. In Tarfal Helgarahi, both Astral Fury and Astral Hatred have a chance to drop it as well. Two other enemies that have a chance to drop are the Gigant Masher Bull and Masher Mare monsters found in Adan Lake.
