Monster Hunter World Mantles are just one of the things in the game that will be helping you along the way. The Mantles are essentially cloaks that you wear. These cloaks can provide you temporary buffs. There are quite a few different Mantles and all of them have different effects that separate them from one another. Apart from Mantles, there are also Boosters in MHW that provide a similar effect.

This Monster Hunter World Mantles Guide will ensure that you are aware of all of the Mantles. We will tell you all about how to unlock Mantles, their durations, their cooldowns, and effects/abilities that they provide.
