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 without any 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.

      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.

                  Hey guys, i really don't understand how the armor skills work... All of my skills are LVL 1, even if i upgrade my armor to max? And all the peaces i have equipped is from the same set. Does anyone know how i can increase this LVL's?
                  THX for answers :)

                    "In addition, armor can be a cosmetic choice for hunters who chose to mix up different pieces of different sets."
                    I'm not really familiar with this game, but this statement incredibly vague, so I'm wondering if anyone could clarify some things for me?
                    Specifically what does "a cosmetic choice" mean? Is there like a cosmetic slot(s) where you can put any piece in there that serves as a visual overlay for current your equipment (think of like those cosmetic slots you see in MMO's), or is this just flavour text? What I mean is that I "could" hypothetically where low-rank armor, but all I'm doing is essentially gimping myself (basically asking for a death-wish) in higher level content because I'm using extremely low armor?

                    Thank you very much if anyone can help!~

                      This might seem like a stupid question, but what happens when the three pages of armor and weapon storage fills up? Do you have to sell stuff or can you put it some place else? I can't find anything about it online.

                        personally i like the zorrah set because it reminds me of dark souls 3. and the girros set, just cause. and odogarron set beccause it reminds me of the tetsucabra, which was the first big challenge i faced in previous games.

                          Tons of new armor sets, including Alpha and Beta versions added! I'm working on making them all pages. Also, we now have an Armor Comparison Table for everybody's ease of browsing: https://monsterhunterworld.wiki.fextralife.com/Armor+Set+Defense+Bonus+Skill+Comparison

                            To the right of the Kadachi Armour set is the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku Armour set, yet it is also referred to as 'Kadachi.'
