There's a ton of content hiddden behind certain hunter ranks! When you reach a certain hunter rank, you will be asked to complete a quest before you can level up further.
As in all Monster Hunter games, once you reach High Rank things really start to pick up. Starting here you'll be able to start forging a wider variety of equipment as well. With the release of version 2.0, new and stronger monsters will be added to the game. By this time you should at least have a proper build set and weapons to face the monsters headed your way.
