This page contains all the Armor Sets & Outfits in Monster Hunter World. Armor can be crafted at the Smithy in Astera. Whenever you find a new armor-making material (this includes: Ore from Mining, Bones from Bonepiles, Monster Materials from hunting), you will unlock its corresponding armor set.
Every monster gives materials for a new set. The armor sets are always named after the monsters. So to craft Zorah Magdaros armor you must defeat Zorah Magdaros. Certain body parts from monsters can be destroyed to receive unique materials. However, you can also earn these as rewards in the post-mission screen. Capturing a monster alive gives more rewards.
Low-Rank / High-Rank Armor Explained
After unlocking 6-star assignments you get access to high-rank armor! This armor uses different materials than the low-rank versions. They also provide a lot more protection. There’s something special: you get access to decorations (rune slots). So you can craft these into your armor to earn boosts you like, such as more health or more attack power. The armors still look the same as the low-rank versions but the materials will change.
Some armor sets are exclusively low-rank or high-rank. Most of them are available in both ranks.

These are all the unique-looking High-Rank sets. Most of the low-rank sets also reappear as high-rank but they look identical. After unlocking high-rank sets you also earn the option to change armor color. To do this, go to the item box in your room in Astera and choose “Change Appearance”.
