Monster Rancher 1 and 2 DX is a combination of two Playstation Classics made into one easy to play bundle. They updated the old CD function with a new digital CD database. Instead of relying on your own physical collection, you may now search for monsters much faster and easier than before. In this article, we will discuss how to obtain the mask in order to unlock Joker.

Joker’s Mask

In order to generate this monster, you will have to acquire the Mask. To unlock this rare equipment, you must complete certain prerequisites while on the Kawrea Volcano Expedition with Dr. Talico.

  • 50+ Fame
  • Rank B or above
  • 280+ life
  • Completed first Kawrea Expedition

If you have achieved all of the qualifications, Dr. Talico will visit you in the first week of June and offer you to join the Kawrea Expedition. You must be on the ranch during the fourth week of May to receive this invitation, so take a break or train. You’ll have to wait until the following year to attempt again if your monster is injured or away on Errantry during this time.

Important Note

  • As your monster explores around the map, removes obstacles, or hunts for different points of interest, its “Energy” will drain.
  • If your monster reaches -10 Energy Points before reaching camp, it will KO, making the Expedition a failure and shortening your monster’s lifespan.

The map layout is always the same here, but once you start looking for points of interest, your monster’s choice of rooms is random, which is why we recommend saving before you start. Your monster’s INT determines how good it is at finding objects.

  • Keep sending your monster to explore the burning altar. This will most likely take a few tries and a lot of save reloads. We recommend you save your progress. You should be able to obtain the Mask while still having enough energy to return to camp without your monster being KO’d.
  • Regardless of whether you receive the Mask and your monster’s KO, you will get to keep the item at the end of the trip. Fortunately, this place of interest is closer to camp than others, so you won’t have to conserve as much energy on your way back. You can now proceed to the Lab. If you utilize the Mask, you can create a Joker out of any two monsters.
