Armor Stats

Rathalos Soul Armor is considered to be one of the best low-rank armor sets, particularly because of the skills it allows. It gives elemental resistance to Fire and Thunder, no resistance to Ice and weaknesses to Water and Dragon. It gives a nice, natural bonus to your Attack, which can be increased even further. It also comes with Earplug, which can easily be upgraded to High Grade Earplug, and a latent Expert skill. It is a good all-around set and can be used up until even High Rank, but be careful with those Dragon attacks!

  • Helm: 1
  • Torso: 1
  • Arms: 1
  • Waist: 2
  • Legs: 2


Gemming this set, at least at first, is all about choices. You could put in 3 Earplug Jewels to bring out a High Grade Earplug. You could also put in 5 Expert Jewels or 2 Expert Jewels and a Celebrity Jewel to activate Reckless Abandon +1. Finally, you could put in 5 Attack Jewels or 2 Attack Jewels and a Fierce Jewel to get yourself an Attack Up (Large). However, you only have 7 slots to play with, so you will have to either gem it according to the challenge you have ahead of you or get a weapon with slots in it. With a 3-slot weapon, for example, you could activate ALL those skills with either a Strongest Jewel or a Hermit Jewel in it.
