Critical vs Non Critical.png

Critical hits are only possible when you have positive affinity (Monster Hunter's term for critical hit chance). Critical hits increase your damage by 25%, so it's definitely useful to have high affinity. You can tell that you're doing critical damage when there's a red shine that appears whenever you attack.

    • 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.
