The best way to use the Whetstone to sharpen your weapons is to mount on the Palamute and do it while running across the battleground or away from the monster. Here is how to mount the Palamute and use the Whetstone.
- First thing first, sheathe your weapon
- Call the Palamute using the “Let me ride” command and mount the canine
- Hold L to open up the Item Bar and use the A and Y to go to the Whetstone
- Once at the item, release L and press Y to use the item.
When mounted on the Palamute, ride it normally evading attacks and using the item. If you want to use the Whetstone without the Palamute, the process is the same except you don’t have to mount the animal.
