The MH Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Launch Starter Pack expansion grants players the following items, free of charge:

  • Potion x10
  • Gathering Charm x3
  • Lucky Charm x3
  • Mahana Dunker x10

Most of the items are self-explanatory, though it’s worth noting that Mahana Dunkers are essentially donuts. They’re for auto-healing outside of battles and can come in very handy, so stocking up never hurts. Capcom ideally would’ve delivered these donuts by the dozen, though it’s hard to complain when the price is nil.

This Launch Starter Pack is a great means of easing new players in, of which there are likely to be many. The original Monster Hunter Stories only ever hit Nintendo 3DS, though its sequel is reaching a much wider audience on PC and Switch. Fortunately, it isn’t necessary to play the first game before diving into its sequel. Find out why right here, along with discovering how the spin-off series differs from its mainline counterpart here.

Wings of Ruin allows players to form bonds with some special monsters, referred to in-game as “Monsties” to amp up the cuteness factor. Not only that — they’re also pettable!
