Armor in Monster Hunter: World (MHW) is comprised of Sets, Unique Pieces, Accessories and enhanced via Decorations. They usually have the look and feel of the Monsters utilized to craft each piece or set. Players may also outfit their Palicoes with specific equipment.

Armor is complemented by Charms. High rank armor comes in two forms, Alpha and Beta sets which vary from one another aesthetically. Alpha sets come with less jewel slots but with bonus Skills or a higher level skill. Beta sets typically lack a second skill but have jewel slots allowing them to be decorated with jewels. There are five different slots of armor: Head Armor, Chest Armor, Arms Armor, Waist Armor and Leg Armor.

      Why do the majority of the female helmets show their face? Whats the point of it being a helmet then? How am I supposed to fashion souls it when the designs are inconsistent between genders :l

        Most of the female armor is shown using white or another color instead of its default color. Could this be fixed?

          I wish there were more armor sets that looked the same for men and women. The men's armor pretty much always looks way cooler than the women's.

                So quick note here, I believe a lot of the images are messed up. My page shows that set like the Anja are actually the Barros or the butterfly is the bone. Maybe get that looked at?

                  There is also the Guild Cross Armor set and Brigade Armor Set, I unlocked both of them after completing most of the Arena quests

                    There is another armor that is not listed here... Brigade Armor Set.. I'm not yet 100% sure how to get it... my friend has it... he told me to do some Arena battles in the 4th floor of Astera... seems to be after you kill 4 Rathian and 2 pukei-pukei.. to be confirmed

                      Alright. I have looked and looked and looked some more. Yet no one explains when you get the Higher Tier Armor. I see it but I do not know how to access it in my game. Is it story related or do I have to do some special quest to unlock it? I just like a clear answer. As nowhere I have looked even answers it.

                        How do you tell which status effects a particular monster will put on you? I understand that if you look in your Monster Field Guide and a monster has a three star Thunder Element you should use a weapon that does thunder damage to deal the maximum amount of damage. But I don’t see anywhere that shows what style of damage a particular monster does to really point out which Damage Status boost I should choose when choosing the armor to wear on a particular hunt.

                          Would be nice if all variants of the armor (low rank / alpha / beta) have images provided. Otherwise, very helpful

                            INFORMATION ABOUT ARMOR SKILLS:
                            Hello, hunter captain here to help: Each armor has a bonus ie: adrenaline. In order to level this up, you must equip diferent items that have that same bonus ie: a helmet and boot that have the same "adrenaline lvl1 bonus: that would give you lvl2 adrenaline. Each bonus has a cap, some cap a lvl1 like mud resistance, and some others like adrenaline cap at lvl7. I recomend not focusing on this until higher ranks (8 or mnore), as to survive, right now, you only need raw defense. My in-game name is Hermes_IX on PS4, feel free to kick me up to hunt some things or ask for any help. Good luck fellow hunters, may the blood be with you.
