Monster Hunter World armor: armor sets list and all armor skills guide

When you’re hunting huge beasties with giant claws and even bigger teeth, you’re going to need some serious protection to shield your squishy human body from dismemberment. To help out, here’s our round up of all the Monster Hunter World armor we’ve seen so far, along with every armor skill that we’ve encountered.

If you’re looking to take the fight to the monsters, we've got all the help you could possibly need - a good companion to this page is our guide to Monster Hunter World's weapons, and we've also got a general Monster Hunter World Guide for you to peruse, too.

Monster Hunter World armor sets - how to get new armor through forging, upgrading, armor list and more

Here’s the complete list of every armor set that you'll find via the Low Rank quests in Monster Hunter World. In the late game you'll unlock High Rank quests, and they come with them new armor. Each armor set is different, featuring its own unique stats, strengths, weaknesses and even armor skills (we'll touch on those further down this page), all of which serve to help change how your character plays fairly significantly.

Armor generally comes in five pieces - head, chest, waist, arms and legs - but not all armor sets contain all five pieces, so keep that in mind. Armor pieces can be mixed and matched across sets, of course.

Before we get into the list of Low Rank armor types in Monster Hunter World, let's first briefly touch on how you actually get new armor.

How to unlock New Armor and Upgrade Armor in Monster Hunter World through forging

In order to unlock a piece of armor to forge it, you'll first need to slay the monster associated with it and carve some materials off its corpse so you have the first materials that'll contribute towards you being able to create that new piece of armor. If you want the Pukei Armor, for instance, you'll want to go out and hunt a Pukei Pukei, kill it, and take some materials from its corpse. The next time you visit the blacksmith in Astera, your hub, that new armor will be available to craft.

Different armor will require different levels of material investment to craft, and higher-end armor will of course require more. That'll mean you'll need to drag yourself out into the world and to more hunts in order to grind out the necessary materials - but that's part of the charm of Monster Hunting. Every armor also looks different, so fashion should also be a consideration.

In terms of Upgrading Armor, it's done in much the same way - just head to the Blacksmith in Astera between missions. Upgrading Armor costs you Armor Spheres, a limited resource that drops when you complete missions but is really quite scarce. You'll want to be careful - save your armor spheres and only spend them on armor you've definitely decided that you want to use.

Monster Hunter World: The 15 Best Armor Sets (& How To Build Them)

By Rebecca O'NeillUpdated

ShareTweetEmail

This guide explains exactly how to build the best armor sets in Monster Hunter World.

A major piece of the gameplay in Monster Hunter World is the creation of different types of armor to protect you while fighting monsters. They require a variety of crafting materials that involve killing multiple monsters, usually with the help of a friend or two. Some players are constantly in search of the best armor out there, but this is a misleading assumption on their part.

RELATED: Monster Hunter Rise: Where To Find Uroktor And Uroktor Scales

There is no best armor as your choice will depend on your weapon, the teammates by your side, and the type of monster you are fighting. Some armor sets do top the rest in Monster Hunter World, even if it can be difficult to acquire some of the pieces needed to craft them.

Updated April 15th, 2021 by Rebecca O’Neill: A new addition to the Monster Hunter series has been made with the release of Monster Hunter Rise for Nintendo Switch. It comes with new monsters and gameplay that fans of the franchise are obsessed with. However, this does not take anything away from Monster Hunter World.

The armor sets in this game are amazing, and with so many to choose from it is impossible to grow bored. You will devote hours to crafting them all, but some of the armor in Monster Hunter World has risen above the rest.

15 Commission Alpha

The Commission Alpha Armor Set must be unlocked which is why so few players realize it exists, but it is one of the best in the game. It is great for those who use ranged weapons because of some of its active skills, such as Stealth and Wide-Range.

They may not be high levels, but the combination of them turns it into a phenomenal set.

14 Kirin Alpha

If you use a weapon with a hidden Thunder Element, then you should look to craft the Kirin Alpha Armor Set. You do have to take down the Elder Dragon called the Kirin in The Guiding Lands or Coral Highlands, but it is well worth the effort.

It gives you the active skills of Marathon Runner Lv. 3, Divine Blessing Lv. 3, Thunder Attack Lv. 3, Thunder Resistance Lv. 2, and Free Elem Ammo Up Effect Lv. 3.

Monster Hunter World Armor: All Male High-Rank Gear

Thanks to a variety of factors, Monster Hunter World is likely to be many people's first experience with the franchise. New gear is desirable in any RPG, but it's especially important in Monster Hunter, where your progression is tied not to experience points, but the new armor and weapons you're able to acquire and craft.

The armor you collect comes in a variety of different styles, shapes, types, and sizes. Every armor set you acquire comes in two types: alpha and beta. Alpha sets come with preset skills that enhance its wearer with a series of statistical benefits, while Beta sets allow its wearer to customize what skills each piece has. In addition, each set has an entirely different look depending on the gender you choose.

To give you an idea of what kind of armor sets you'll be able to use once you've progressed far enough in the game, we've compiled the gallery above. You'll find images of high-end armor for male characters in this gallery. If you're curious about female character gear, check out our high-end female player gear gallery. You can also check out our high-end Palico armor gallery.

Monster Hunter World releases on January 26 for Xbox One and PS4, with a PC release to come later in the year. That's notable, as recent entries were limited to 3DS. The additional horsepower has allowed for a game with much larger, more beautiful environments to play in. It also does a better job of introducing newcomers to the flow of playing a Monster Hunter game. You can read more about what to expect in our Monster Hunter World review.

Those playing on PS4 will be able to get their hands on some exclusive gear based on Horizon: Zero Dawn. We also know that new Mega Man-themed items are on the way, and if past games are any indications, that won't be the last crossover content that Capcom releases.

Armor sets mhw

Top 10 Best Armor Sets in Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter has always been a franchise where your progression as a player depends on your equipment. This makes sense in a game centered around hunting majestic creatures for their parts.

Monster Hunter: World (MHW) is no different in this regard. If you want to be the best, you have to cover yourself in the scales, horns, claws, and fangs of the strongest monsters you can find.

You are what you hunt.

I’m sure that the upcoming MHW: Iceborne expansion will bring many newcomers and returning veterans to the shores of Hoarfrost Reach, the new landmass teeming with new challenges to overcome and monsters to hunt.

In order to help you be prepared and, therefore, minimize casualties in the exploration of this new land, I’ve put together a list including some of the best armor sets you can find in the game.

Most players pick and choose some parts from different sets to optimize their builds, but for those of you who favor aesthetics or just don’t want to break out a calculator each time you choose your gear, then my list will set you on the right path to monster hunting proficiency.

10. Commission Armor Sets

Commission MHW armor

I’m starting the list off with one of the safest choices for any hunter who doesn’t want to switch their armor around too much.

The Commission Alpha and Beta sets will offer you a high defense rating along with solid resistances to all the elements in the game.

They also have some useful utility skills such as “Stealth,” to help you sneak around monsters, and “Wide Range,” which extends the effects of certain items to your teammates.

Donning all the pieces of either armor set will activate the bonus skill “Commission Guidance,” which allows you to carve the remains of any monster one additional time.

Truly a nice, all-around option if you don’t mind looking like some NPC grunt.

 

9. Uragaan Alpha Set

Uragaan armor set in MHW

I’ll follow up with the very definition of tank armor.

Although this high-fantasy version of the Hulkbuster doesn’t offer as high of a base defense value as you’d expect, it allows you to guard through otherwise unavoidable attacks thanks to its “Uragaan Protection” bonus skill.

It also comes with some levels of the “Guard” skill built-in to further improve your use of shields and a very high fire resistance, which is very desirable against most of the game’s higher-level monsters.

These are two of the best options to pair with the Lance and Gunlance.

I recommend the Uragaan Beta version, which trades some skills for decoration slots, making it more customizable.

 

8. Teostra Alpha/Beta/Gamma Sets

Teostra MHW armor set

These sets are a great choice for players who are good at targeting weak spots.

The Teostra sets come with a “Weakness Exploit” built-in, which will increase affinity, and therefore critical hits, when hitting weak spots.

This is marvelously complemented by the armor’s bonus skill “Teostra Technique” which prevents your weapon from losing sharpness on critical hits. It also offers a high Defense rating and, like the Uragaan sets, nice resistance to fire damage.

If you can get your hands on the Gamma version of the set, then I highly recommend it. In addition to a higher defense value, it does away with some of the least useful skills in favor of “Critical Eye,” which increases affinity in general, and has plenty more decoration slots for further customization.

 

7. Kirin Armor Sets

Kirin MHW armor

In addition to easily being the sexiest armor available for both genders, the Kirin set has plenty of things going for it if you like to bring the thunder.

All versions of this armor have the “Free Element” and “Thunder Attack” skills, which are great if you have a weapon with hidden thunder damage. It also has the “Marathon Runner” skill, which makes you spend less stamina when performing certain actions in combat.

Its bonus skill, “Kirin Favor,” will allow you to obtain more rewards for capturing monsters than you normally would; so killing all those unicorns to make the armor will, at least, reduce further damage on the New World’s fauna.

On the downside, this armor has an important lack of versatility, and its negative fire resistance makes it complicated to use on most endgame bosses. Still, I couldn’t possibly make a list without such an iconic look.

 

6. Diablos Nero Alpha/Beta Sets

Diablos Nero MHW armor

Next up on the list I have a unique armor in comparison to the rest of the sets.

Where most sets will focus on keeping you healthy and your weapons sharp, the Diablos encourages an aggressive, reckless playstyle.

It integrates the “Resentment” skill, which makes you stronger when you have recoverable damage, and its bonus skill “Diablos Mastery” will have you dealing more damage the more sharpness your weapon loses.

Few things are more intimidating than a horned madman running at you with a blunt sword.

This set also offers a decent defense rating and high fire resistance, which makes it viable against many high-level monsters. It’s best paired with something like a Great Sword with no elemental damage, as “Diablos Mastery” also empowers such weapons.

 

5. Vaal Hazak Alpha/Beta/Gamma Sets

Vaal Hazak armor sets

Hands down the most badass-looking suit available to MHW players.

This armor is pretty straightforward: It’s meant to keep you alive for a long, long time. Not only does it have a high Defense rating, but the bonus skill “Vaal Hazak Vitality” will let you slowly recover Health until fully replenished.

That coupled with the “Recovery Speed” skill and plenty of decoration slots will let you build an almost immortal character, provided you can dodge or block the most damaging attacks.

As if to balance out such potential, the armor is regrettably weak against fire and dragon damage, which keeps it from being as viable against most high-level bosses.

It’s still incredibly powerful against enemies such as Deviljho or Lunastra, and if you manage to mount a Kirin, you’ll easily be mistaken for one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

 

4. Odogaron Alpha/Beta Sets

Odogaron MHW armor

If you liked the Teostra set, then this one will definitely pique your interest, as it’s also focused on sharpness and critical hits.

The Odogaron armor seems heavily influenced by Japanese folklore.

On the aesthetic side it looks somewhat like a samurai wearing an Oni mask to intimidate his foes, and the skills on this set would definitely match such a character.

The Odogaron armor’s bonus skill “Odogaron Mastery” adds a stun effect to your draw strikes, which is complemented well by the integrated “Quick Sheath” skill.

It also keeps your weapon from losing sharpness for a full minute after sharpening, which is a great matchup with the “Speed Sharpening” skill.

What truly makes those bonuses worth it is the “Critical Eye” skill, which will have you landing critical hits left and right.

I recommend this for samurai-lovers and anyone who values a sharp edge on their weapons but hates pausing the action every few hits to sharpen their blade.

 

3. Nergigante Alpha/Beta/Gamma Set

Nergigante armor sets mhw

This armor is more than just protective gear – it’s a badge of honor and a reminder of your triumph over the forces of strife and destruction that Nergigante represents.

This absolute beast of an armor set is excellent for maximizing DPS with skills like “Agitator,” “Maximum Might,” and “Attack Boost,” while still keeping you safe and sound with its great defense rating and “Nergigante Hunger” bonus skill, which regenerates your health as long as you’re beating something up.

The best version of this armor is definitely Gamma, which has considerably higher defense, but because that’s only acquirable during events, you can always take Beta for increased decoration slots.

 

2. Xeno’jiiva Alpha/Beta/Gamma Set

Xeno’jiiva armor set mhw

Second place on my list is occupied by an otherworldly piece of equipment.

Indeed, anyone clad in this armor will look like a mystical being descended from the heavens to bring order to this savage land.

To achieve such an end, you have the “Xeno’jiiva Divinity” bonus skill, which will keep your weapons sharp 50% longer, and “Critical Boost,” which will make your precise strikes eat through the enemy’s health in a flash.

This set will also give you a very high defense rating, keep you from flinching with the “Flinch Free” skill, and protect you against any kind of blight that could interfere with your onslaught with “Blight Resistance.”

You only have to worry about landing those critical hits… and maybe avoiding dragon and fire damage, if you can.

 

1. Drachen Alpha Set

Drachen Alpha MHW armor set

This shiny and slick suit of armor made from the remains of countless Behemoths is one of the coolest-looking armors I’ve seen in the Monster Hunter franchise. Luckily, it’s also really powerful, with a very high defense rating and 7 decoration slots for your customizing needs.

The Drachen Alpha set has the “Critical Eye” and “Critical Boost” skills, which both increase the likelihood of landing critical hits and heightens their damage output.

Along with those, this armor’s bonus skill “Soul of the Dragoon” will keep your weapons from losing sharpness when landing critical hits.

“Soul of the Dragoon” also has a second effect, which increases elemental damage on airborne attacks.

It’s the only way to get this bonus in the game, which makes this armor a must for those who favor the Insect Glaive and want to pack more of a punch as well as anyone looking to critical hit their way to monster hunting supremacy.

3 Extremely Powerful Builds of Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World Armor guide: every armor set, armor skills list, forging, upgrading and more

The Monster Hunter series is as much about gear as it is about hunting savage beasts, and in Monster Hunter World armor is one of the most important and character-defining pieces of gear you can have.

Made up of five different pieces, the armor you have equipped can seriously change up your character's hardiness and even their ability in battle, in turn allowing you to embrace different gameplay styles. Alongside Monster Hunter World's 14 weapon classes, armor really serves to define your hunter, especially in co-op. It also looks really cool - there's nothing wrong with being a fashion hunter as well as a monster hunter.

There's quite a few systems around Armor in the game that impact what might be the best armor for you, so we figured we'd break some of them down in a post: forging, upgrading, elemental strengths and weaknesses and armor skills. Here's all that...

Need more Monster Hunter World assistance? Here's some more lovely guides for you:

Monster Hunter World Armor Guide: how to get new armor, armor list, armor skills and more

Given that Monster Hunter is all about taking down monsters and looting resources from them, it of course follows that getting your hands on all-new armor is also tied to this simple little activity loop. 

In basic terms, you'll mostly unlock the ability to forge new armor sets as you take down the associated monster. So to forge the Kestodon gear, for instance, you'll need to take down the associated monster. Once you've done that you'll loot the first items associated with that monster and unlock the ability to forge armor using some of those items.

Forging takes place at the blacksmith area in Astera, your main hub. Keep in mind that forging new armor will take up quite a few resources and quite often you'll need to hunt a monster quite a few times over in order to harvest the parts and loot you need to forge the armor.

Each armor set has up to five pieces, though some sets have less parts. You can mix and match parts from different sets to get a look that suits you, and each set carries with it different stats and bonuses - something we'll touch on a little more throughout this page.

Armor is split into Low Rank and High Rank - and this separates out stuff from the two ends of the game. For instance, we've got a page showing off all the Low Rank Armor for Female Hunters and one for all the High Rank Armor for Female Hunters - but they have a whole different set of high-rank armors too.

Forging and Upgrading Armor in Monster Hunter World: get the best armor possible

Once you own a piece of armor from forging it, you can upgrade it in the blacksmith in much the same manner and from the same NPC as when you forge new armor. While it all happens in the same place upgrading armor is a little more complicated, since it requires an additional resource - Armor Spheres

Armor Spheres are rare items, and you'll actually be rewarded one for every main quest you complete. You might want to hold on to your armor spheres early on rather than spending them on the lower-end early-game armor before you know what you want to do armor-wise - it's better to struggle on with weaker armor and make a more informed decision later.

Some armor uses more Armor Spheres when you upgrade it than others, so you'll want to consider carefully and weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of each piece of armor. On that topic...

Monster Hunter World Armor Skills: every armor skill listed

Armor Skills are where armor can offer some really interesting and unique bonuses - different armor can carry with it different skills that when equipped will grant significant buffs to your character. There's an awful low of these in Monster Hunter World, and they all have greatly varying effects that are well worth studying to see if any particular one will mesh well with your weapon of choice or gameplay style.

Below you'll find a list of all the armor skills in the game that we've discovered so far, and we'll keep updating the list. Use it to plan ahead what skills you might want to try to have equipped to your hunter!

  • Adrenaline: Temporarily reduces stamina depletion when health is at 40% or lower.
