Set Bonuses in MHW

Skills in Monster Hunter World (MHW) are buffs and abilities given to you by your armorcharms, and decorations. Every piece of Equipment that you have gives skill points to certain skills, and some even subtract skill points. There are three basic types of skills: basic skills, toggle skills, and Set Bonuses. For basic skills, the more points you have the stronger the skill gets. Toggle skills require only one point as they are on or off. Set bonuses are special skills that you get for having a matching set of armor.

Basic skills are available through multiple pieces of different sets, and can be mix-matched to increase their performance.
