Monster Hunter World Equipment

At the beginning of this guide, we will take a look at some of the accessories that are available to you in Monster Hunter World.

After that, we will take a brief look at the Scoutflies, as those can have a lot of impact on how you play the game and approach your enemies in general.

We will take a look at the different mantles that are available to you as well so that you can know what to do.

Lastly, we will take a look at the assortment of items that are found within the game and give you a fair amount of information regarding them, so as to ensure that you know what the item is used for as soon as you find it or craft it.


There are a total of seven different accessories for you to use. One of them is the Fair Wind Charm Talisman.

This will increase your defense and offense so finding it can be a good idea. Right now, the only way we know how you can get the Fair Wind Charm for yourself is as a pre-order bonus for purchasing the game.

Slinger Charm 1
It is another accessory that will be available to you, but we do not have any information on it as of this moment. Be sure to check back after the launch of the game when we have updated this guide.

Attack Charm 1
It will increase your attack. It can be crafted using 1500 coins, 4 sturdy bone along with 4 boulder bone. Add to this a Lightcrystal and Aquacore Ore and there you have it, you now own a rarity level 3 charm with a +1 Attack Boost.

Water Charm 1
It has no information available at this time. Check back after the release of the game when we update this guide.

Defense Charm 1
It will be used to get a +1 Defense boost, and it will have to be crafted. Check back later when we have information on how to craft a Defense Charm for yourself.

Fire Charm 1
Currently has no information available as to what it does or where to find it. Check back after the release of the game, as we will have updated the guide by then.

Evasion Charm 1
It has a rarity level of 4 and gives you a +1 Evade Window. This charm can be crafted if you have 3000 coins, 2 of both Legiana Tail Webbing and Legiana Claw, 3 Coral Crystal and 1 Aquacore Ore.


Scoutflies are extremely important for your progression. They sort of work like a piece of hunter equipment would. They guide you to a target so that you do not need to use paintballs to mark it.

Scoutflies are a standard piece of equipment for hunters in the game. They have a green color and can be stored in a small cage. They work by using their senses to identify smells and substances around them.

This can be particularly useful when you are trying to track down a certain kind of monster, or when the research commission is out exploring the area.

You can improve the level of the Scoutflies to make them more effective. Once you trigger them, they will direct you to a certain monster or the materials left behind by him which can be used to craft items.

During this, they will gain experience and level up to the point when they can focus on one target and tell you exactly where to find it.

Scoutflies are a great part of your inventory and you should prioritize leveling them up as much as you can. They may not seem like a big deal, but they can shorten your grinding times so much over the long run that it would be foolish to ignore them.

They can end up helping you find other equipment much more easily than you would otherwise.


Mantles will cloak a player for a certain amount of time to provide you buffs. There are many different mantles in the game so let’s take a look at some of them.

These mantles will give you different buffs when you are concealed so try to use them for their intended purpose. Remember that some of them work best when you are playing as a team, so try to prioritize which piece you pick on that.

Challenger Mantle
It will cause monsters to attack you more often so that you can lure them into a trap. It has a duration of 3 minutes and takes 5 minutes to charge.

This is one of those mantles that will work better with teammates but you can also use it when playing alone if you manage to set up a decent trap or find a place which gives you an advantage.

Ghillie Mantle
It will conceal you from an enemy for two minutes, and then take 5 minutes to recharge. However, its effect is canceled if you attack or take damage.

This is one of those mantles that can be used both offensively and defensively. Experience with this mantle will allow you to use it in multiple different ways.

Rocksteady Mantle
It will prevent wind effects, hearing damage and grant you tremor resistance. It can only be used for 1.5 minutes before it has to recharge for a full six minutes.

You can guess that this mantle is much overpowered which is why the time that it is active for is extremely short.

Use it when you are sure that you can avail maximum advantage from it and remember to tell your team when you do use it so that they can use your abilities for the best.

Waterproof Mantle
It will reduce damage taken from the water, Waterblight and will allow you to move about freely in deep water and muck. It has a recharge time of 3.5 minutes after which it can be used for 3 minutes.

This is great because it allows you to wage war when you are under water. It does not have a large recharge time so you can use it pretty much whenever you want.

Health Booster
It slowly increases your health for a minute, after which it recharges for 2.5 minutes so that you can heal once again. This is good for when you are retreating from a fight and need to regain health a little faster before you jump back in for round 2.
