Monster Hunter World Iceborne Guardian Armor Limits

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Guardian Armor Limits

Version 10.11 was released for Monster Hunter World along with several adjustment to the game and 2 bonus add on content: the Guardian Armor Set and Early Weapon Materials Set.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne Guardian Armor Limits

Despite the + marking on the Guardian Armor Set acts similarly to a high rank armor. It completely maxes out at 82 defense and with only 2 x level 1 decoration slots, this set will  be limited to what it can provide. Overall, this armor will help those playing through World but will be weaker than most endgame World meta armor.

Using this to start master rank is an option if hunters neglected to create their own sets before jumping into Iceborne. Players shouldn’t stress too much as most endgame armor will be replaced due to its lack of defense for new master rank sets that are tankier at the cost of skills. Below you will find the list of stat limits for this set as well as set skills and bonuses.
