Unlockable Armor from Arena Quests

Mighty Bow Feather

The Mighty Bow Feather is indeed mighty—it's the only armor in the game that can give you Bow Charge Plus, which adds one more level to any bow's max charge. You can unlock the blueprint once you get each one of its required materials!

Feather of Mastery

Feather of Mastery is extremely useful if you're farming for materials, as it gives you Carving Master, which allows you to carve a monster one extra time. You can get the armor piece itself by completing all six arena quests with every weapon. No forging needed!

Brigade Armor

The Brigade Armor Set is not notable. All of the skills it offers can be easily obtained from other armor that are easier to make. Its blueprint is unlocked once you have every material needed to craft it.

Brigade S Armor

The Brigade S Armor Set is more unique than its low rank counterpart, as it has the rare skills, Capture Master and Carving Pro. While Carving Pro only prevents you from getting knocked back while carving, Capture Master actually has a good chance of increasing your capture rewards at the end of every hunt. Useful for farming! You can unlock its blueprint by getting all the materials it needs for crafting.

What are Arena Quests?

Arena quests are challenge hunts pitting you against various monsters either in the Arena or another locale. Your hunting prowess will be tested and graded based on how fast you're able to clear the hunt.

Pre-Set Equipment

Monster Hunter Rise - Long Sword.png

Arena Quests pit you against monsters using pre-set equipment - you cannot bring your armor and weapon into the quest. Hunters will have a choice of 5 different loadouts with each using a different weapon.

Rank and Rewards Based on Time

The faster you can clear a hunt the higher your rank and potential rewards. Hunts are graded from S Rank, A Rank, and B-Rank, with S Rank being the fastest. Each monster has a different minimum times for each rank so be sure to take note before jumping in.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
