[edit] General Info

The Monster Hunter series has different skills that can help or harm you during the course of the game. Throughout the game you will use multiple skills varying from boosting up your attack, to gathering items.


Unlike the first Monster hunter the newer versions use a customizing skill system. The skill system is activated by + or - values. When the value of most skills reach +10 or -10 the skills are activated. Some skills wont activate until +15, while other skills can be boosted again with +15 and +20 values. The values must equal to -10, -15, +10, +15, or +20 to take effect.


Your skills come from the armor you make. Each piece of armor have default values. Although each piece of the same set have the same skills. Combining them adds the skill's values together resulting in activating the skill.


For example: Rathalos Blademaster Armor as it appears in monster hunter tri:
Table as it appears in game
Active Skills Skill name Mh3iconhelm.png Mh3iconplate.png MH3icon-Gauntlets.png Mh3iconwaist.png Mh3iconleggings.png Tot
Attack Up (M)

Critical Eye +1
Heat Cancel (Lo)
Defense Down (S)

Attack 1 2 5 5 2 15
Expert 2 1 2 3 2 10
Heat Res 2 2 3 1 2 10
Defense -4 -2 -1 -2 -1 -10


Wearing this armor set would activate the Critical Eye(Expert + 10), Attack Up(M)(Attack +15), Heat Cancel (Lo)(Heat Res +10), and Defense Down (S)(Defense -10) skills.

[edit] Decorating

You can also alter the skills you have by placing jewels in the slots of the armor. Each slot the armor gives allows 1 jewel(depending on the jewel) to alter your skill set.


For example: Rathalos Blademaster Armor

Rathalos Set

Name Slots Jewels
Mh3iconhelm.png Rathalos Helm 0 Attack Jewel

+1 Attack

Mh3iconplate.png Rathalos Mail 0 Attack Jewel

+1 Attack

MH3icon-Gauntlets.png Rathalos Vambraces
Mh3iconwaist.png Rathalos Faulds
Mh3iconleggings.png Rathalos Greaves 00 Assault Jewel Requires two Slots.

+3 Attack
-1 Defense

Totaling 4 slots, so say we use two Attack jewels, and one Assult jewel. The new skills would be as follow:

Table as it appears in game
Active Skills Skill name Mh3iconhelm.png Mh3iconplate.png MH3icon-Gauntlets.png Mh3iconwaist.png Mh3iconleggings.png Tot
Attack Up (L)

Critical Eye +1
Heat Cancel (Lo)
Defense Down (S)

Attack 2 3 5 5 5 20
Expert 2 1 2 3 2 10
Heat Res 2 2 3 1 2 10
Defense -4 -2 -1 -2 -2 -11


The blue highlighted areas show an increase in the amount of points that Skill receives which go to activate the highest attack boost one can receive from skills - Attack Up (L). The red highlighted area shows a decrease in points, but not enough to activate a higher degree of Defense down. This is caused by the assault Jewel which goes to show that not every jewel can be a benefit, so keep that in mind.

[edit] Mixed Sets

Mixing different pieces of sets is a good way to put different skills in what's called a mixed set. To be Continued...
