Monster Hunter Rising Armor Guide

Monster Hunter Rise’s armor system is one of the best parts of the game. Before setting off to smash the ancient beast, give yourself butterfly wings or a cowboy hat that inspires its own unique sense of joy. I don’t want to be smashed by a giant pumpkin, that’s for sure.

Rise’s armor can be as simple or as complex as you want to craft it. You might choose to just focus on defense and resistance, but you can still deal with higher tier monsters. On the other hand, if you like tweaking your skills and pushing everything toward a specific playstyle, Rise has the tools for you.
