List of Contents
Armor is the primary form of defensive equipment for hunters in Monster Hunter World! They provide defensive bonuses for both Raw (Physical) and Elemental defense, that a hunter is going to need when fighting dangerous monsters.
Armor also contains Skills that you gain when equipped. Each piece has one or two Skills with varying number of levels for each Skill. Individual pieces may also have Decoration Slots on them for you to add additional Skills. Armor comes in 5 parts, Head, Torso, Arms, Waist, and Feet. These 5 pieces make up an Armor Set.
Skills are buffs or abilities that help players in or out of combat when wearing either an Armor Piece, Charm, or Decoration that adds levels to a Skill. Unlike the past Monster Hunter games, you do not need a certain number of Skill points to activate the Skill. Instead, each Skill point provides a bonus that increases the more levels there are in the Skill.
Experienced Hunters use these Skills to help increase their chances of successfully hunting powerful monsters!
Specific Armor pieces that share the same Defense rating and Elemental Resistances which are mainly crafted from a single monster. There are times where equipping a certain number of Armor pieces in an Armor Set will give the player Set Bonuses.
Set Bonuses are special Skills that are activated when wearing the required number of Armor pieces in a specific Armor Set. These bonuses can activate even when mixing Alpha , Beta, or Armor pieces which share the same Set Bonus.
