Skills in Monster Hunter Rise(MHR) refer to abilities, buffs and bonuses granted to Hunters by their equipped Weapons, Armor, Talismans, as well as Decorations. The benefits granted by Skills include persistent boosts to stats like Attack Power and Affinity, providing temporary buffs when performing certain actions, and even modifying a Weapon's properties like granting additional Phials for Charge Blades. Skills are an essential part of a hunt and play an integral role in a Hunter's progression.

  • Each piece of equipment can have one or more Skills attached and each Skill on a piece of equipment can provide 1 or more levels of the skill. Each level equipped contributes to the Skill's overall effect.
  • All Skills have a maximum level, after which, additional levels in the skill will provide no further benefit.
  • Many Skills have only 1 level and provide their full benefit immediately upon equipping while other skills have varying levels of effects and can have additional effects at higher levels.

      I dunno. The skills feel lacking and largely boring. No unique armor skills, many decos take 2 slots, armor is stingy on slots and locks you into a specific build/skill combo. World did skills and armor better.
