Specialized Tools in Monster Hunter World (MHW) activate powerful effects for a limited amount of time, and up to two can be equipped at a time.  Equip them from the item box, and use them on quests by selecting them from the item bar.

Specialized Tools of Monster Hunter World (MHW)

Mantles in Monster Hunter World are "Cloaks" players can wear on their backs that provide temporary buffs to their character. They provide effects such as camouflage or aggression, to remain unseen or to lure Monsters to chase after you into a trap. Below is a list of all known Mantles and their benefits.

A second Specialized Tool slot will unlock once you complete the quest Land of Convergence and fight the last Monster of the game (not counting DLC and Iceborne Expansion)

Note: You need to have obtained the base version of the mantle before you can obtain the plus version.

Boosters are placeable items that will release a mist that grants a beneficial effect while you or another hunter are standing in it.

      The list needs to mention that you need the previous iteration of the item before you get the + one. I didn't have the impact mantle and I was at the correct level to unlock it, but it didn't unlock until I got the first iteration of it

      • So for some reason the boosters are also listed under mantles as well. I cannot seem to edit in source code, but would it be possible to group the boosters under "Boosters" and not the subcategory "Mantles"?
