Monster Difficulty is determined by the number of Hunters in a quest or hunt and will always be optimized by the number of players in a hunt. The Difficulty Scaling automatically adapts whenever a player leaves or joins which makes it ideal for players with a bad internet connection.

High Rank Monster Difficulty

Hub Quests are obviously more difficult than Village Quests, even if you play them solo since they are set in High Rank. High Rank Quests are only available once you hit Hub Quest ★5 in the Gathering Hub. The higher level Hub Quests you take, the stronger Monsters become.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
