Slots & Description
The Hi-Metal class of armors, especially the lower grade, is one not often seen among hunters due to various reasons. Though the armor itself isn't terribly expensive in regards to its defense and such, making the armor requires 13 pieces of Machalite Ore, and most hunters early on would prefer to spend the precious few Machalite they obtain on the improvement of their weapons instead. That's not to say that the Hi-Metal armors are not worth the effort to make, though, as the low-grade Hi-Metal is the earliest of the "Get Heavy" class of armor - the big, bulky armor that's focused more on standing in the midst of battle and taking hits than using a hit and run strategy. This is encouraged by the inherent Health +20 Skill already in the armor (Though the Gunnery Skill isn't always useful). Overall, this is a set of armor that, should one be able to afford making it (and if they are into the "Get Heavy" look and strategy), will prove its worth until access to the Hi-Metal S is unlocked.

- Mediocre armor whose main selling point is the Gunnery Skill, making it good armor for early Gunlancers. It has 5 slots, allowing you to gem in any skill with +2 jewels or improve the Health +30 to Health +50 (requires 3 slots) and get Gunnery King (requires 2 Small Arms Jewels, which, again, require Machalite Ore). Whim is generally useless, so it's best to ignore it when gemming. Unfortunately for this armor, its defense is pretty low and it only boasts a resistance to Thunder, being neutral to Dragon and weak to Fire, Water and Ice.
- It's not recommended to get this armor unless you do a lot of shelling with Gunlances, as there are better armors out there with Health +30, and as mentioned before, the Machalite Ore can be difficult to get at this stage.
