Scattered around Monster Hunter Rise’s maps like Shrine Ruins are collectible messages called relic records. Both messages and rampage messages look like notes tied to swords stuck in the ground. Approach them, and on-screen text says “old message.”

When you collect all old messages in an area, Kagero the Merchant rewards you with decorations for your room. Find all Shrine Ruins old messages, and you’ll get a Magnamalo carving and an Arzuros carving.

In this Monster Hunter Rise collectibles guide, we’ll show you the location of every Shrine Ruins message and rampage message. Our numbered maps correspond to your in-game notebook, and our screenshots show all relic records locations.

There are 10 relic record messages to find in the Shrine Ruins. The numbers above match their entries in your Info > Hunter’s Notes > Notebook menu.

Shrine Ruins message 1

Climb up to location 5. In the northwest of the arena-like area there, head to the northwest. There’s a series of ledges and platforms that will lead you to the top of the mountain on the north side of location 5. You’ll find Shrine Ruins message 1 next to the shrine at the very top.

Shrine Ruins message 2

In location 6, face the waterfall to the north. There’s a narrow stream to the northeast. Head up the stream until you see the first trees. Face right (east), and use your Wirebug to climb the wall. You’ll land on a ledge (look for a dragonstrike nut plant). Shrine Ruins message 2 is in the easternmost corner of that ledge.

Shrine Ruins message 3

In location 12, climb onto the ridge along the southern edge. Follow it to the east until you find a small stone altar. Shrine Ruins message 3 is on the eastern side of that altar.

Shrine Ruins message 4

Head to location 11 in the far northeast of the map. Along the eastern edge of the arena, look up along the wall inside the tree roots. There’s a wooden arch with blue flags about halfway up. Climb up with your Wirebug to find Shrine Ruins message 4.

Shrine Ruins message 5

In location 13, look for the wooden building at the top of the waterfall. Just to the north of it and a little higher up the wall, there’s a wooden bridge. Head east to climb onto the ridge, and then head west back to the bridge. You’ll find Shrine Ruins message 5.

Shrine Ruins message 6

About halfway between locations 7 and 8, face south and look for the huge torii gate (it marks the path up to location 5). Climb up the cliff on the left (east) side of the gate. You’ll find Shrine Ruins message 6 on a ledge even with the top of the gate.

Shrine Ruins message 7

In the middle of location 2, look up and to the east. High above location 2, there’s a huge tree arcing over the clearing. Climb up to the ledge (it’s easiest to go around to location 1), and out onto the tree trunk. Take the first branch on the right, and then the branch to the left. Shrine Ruins message 7 is near the end of that branch.

Shrine Ruins message 8

This message is between locations 5 and 6, but it’s easiest to spot when approaching from location 6. Climb up the ridge to the east of location 6 and look toward location 5. You’re looking for a small cave most of the way up the cliff wall.

Use your Wirebug to jump into the cave to find Shrine Ruins message 8.

Shrine Ruins message 9

There are two rampage messages to collect in the Shrine Ruins. The numbers above match their entries in your Info>Hunter’s Notes>Notebook menu.

Shrine Ruins rampage message 1

The first rampage message is near location 5. Take the path up from location 8 until you see a small house precariously balanced on the cliff edge. (There are also two Great Wirebugs that will zip you all the way up to the house’s roof — they’re on the path just to the south of location 5.)

Use your Wirebug to work around to the south face to find Shrine Ruins rampage message 1.

Rampage message 2

Head to location 3. Just to the north of the number, there’s a tall vine wall to climb. Take it all the way up. There’s a stone altar there and a melnyx’s gatherings location. Behind that altar facing east, there’s a stubby-looking tree.

Use your Wirebug to climb onto the tree trunk and follow it out to the end. There, you’ll find Shrine Ruins rampage message 2.
