Updated! Lunastra info added!

GOT TIRED OF GOING TO THE WORKSHOP TO CHECK THESE OUT

So I made a simple mini-guide detailing the armor skills and slots of all the (I can currently forge) Armor in Monster Hunter World. There’s also a table of MHW Set Bonuses below it. Similarly, I made a >> Searchable Elemental Weakness Chart <<, since I’m lazy.

coming up: I will soon be adding more gear-related guides like progression and suggested setups, as well as armor skill info and rundown.

Check our MHW Calc!

Use the box on the upper right of the table to search/filter

High-Rank Armor: Skills & Slots

Table information key

Type: is the armor name, pretty much also describes the monster you need to farm for it. a is “alpha type”, B is “beta type”.

Helm/Chest/Hands/Legs/Boots: is pretty self-explanatory.

S: The tiny boxes on the right of each armor type is the slot info. b is big decoration, m is medium decoration, and s is small decoration.

Armor with an asterisk (*) have a set bonus: check the table under this one for a quick description for ’em.

This table is a basic chart for each armor piece and its corresponding armor skills (“traits”).
