Craftable from Tickets Obtained in Rampages

The Rampage is a new game mode introduced in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) that pits you against hoards of monsters attempting to trample Kamura Village. When you have successfully defended Kamura Village, you will be rewarded with Defender Tickets.

These Defender Tickets increase in rarity depending on the difficulty of Rampage Quest taken and are used to craft and upgrade Rampage Weapons in the Smithy. Rampage Weapons are special, highly customizable weapons that require Defender Tickets to craft!

    • 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.
