Basics

Charm Tables

Each character is locked to a fixed table of possible charms when a new game is started. Some tables have a very small range of charms which will make it harder or impossible to get certain armor skill combinations later in the game. Some do not include rust shards which are the only source of a unique weapon for each weapon type. Take a few minutes to follow this guide to guarantee your save gets a specific charm table.

For reference of charms in each table refer to the Charm Table Search application

Quest Ranks

Single player Moga Village quests and multi player Tanzia Port quests use a star rating system as a guide to difficulty level. Be aware these do not represent the same difficulty, Tanzia Port quests are harder than the equivalent starred Moga Village quest, with the exception of the G Rank equivalent Mark of a Hero and The Brilliant Darkness.

Tanzia Port quests are usually referred to as Low Rank, High Rank (not to be confused with Hunter Rank) or G Rank.

In order of difficulty:

  • Moga Village Low
  • Moga Village High/Tanzia Port HR 1-2
  • Tanzia Port HR 3-5
  • Tanzia Port G quests

Hunter Rank

In Tanzia Port players have a Hunter Rank to represent their level of progression. This is raised by completing key quests to unlock an Urgent Quest. Only the player who selects the Urgent Quest is eligible to rank up on completion. A minimum rank is required to join quests. There are no restrictions on highly ranked players joining lower rank quests.

After completing the HR7 ending urgent quest Black Flame of Calamity ranks change to a point based system with higher difficulty quests giving more points towards a rank up.

Some subspecies are locked until higher Hunter Ranks:

  • Hunter Rank 8 - Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos
  • Hunter Rank 40 - Lucent Nargacuga
  • Hunter Rank 70 - Abyssal Lagiacrus
  • Hallowed Jhen Mohran - Complete all Moga Village quests. Capture all monsters and subspecies, excludes Lucent Nargacuga and Abyssal Lagiacrus. Elder Dragons cannot be captured and must be killed, including Alatreon.
