Armor Stats

The Kirin armor is (defense-wise) about the strongest obtainable armor in elder quest. This armor can be made once the 5* quest have become available. The armor has great defense and a very balanced elemental resistance, which will become neutral to all elements thanks to the elemental resistance +5 skill.

  • Armor made from the hide, horns, and mane of Kirin. Kirin armor uses parts from other monsters including Khezu and Gypceros. Kirin armor has multiple benefits, including Elemental Resistance, increasing damage of element-based attacks, and limited psychic wyvern tracking. However, it comes at the cost of reducing the duration of items, including attack and defense boosters as well as hot and cool drinks. However, in Monster Hunter Freedom 2, the wearer can use decorations to offset the everlasting penalty and upgrade to the best wyvern tracking ability.
