Hunt the Nightshade and Shardshower Monitors to get Pointed Scales.

You’ll find Pointed Scales in two locations, Akikure Canyon and Fuyufusagi Fort, making it a material you’ll only be able to find after you’ve completed chapter one.

Unfortunately, getting hold of Pointed Scales isn’t as easy as some of the other resources. You’ll need to take down a Kemono instead of simply harvesting it from a wall or the floor, so make sure you come ready for a fight.

Once you find yourself in one of the two locations, keep an eye out for either Nightshade Monitors (in Akikure Canyon) or Shardshower Monitors (In Fuyufusagi Fort). Hunting these creatures and harvesting them after will grant you some Pointed Scales.
