When it comes to Monster Hunter World, players can make the experience as surface level or as deep as they want. Some will be satisfied taking on a few monsters and then putting the game down, while others will grind out the same tempered elder dragons just to perfect their build even further.
But creating the perfect build is a lot of work in Monster Hunter World, and the game’s menus are not all that intuitive or well put together. Some might even say they are archaic in design, which can make them intimidating for players that want to learn more but struggle to figure out where to start.
Luckily, one Monster Hunter World superfan and skilled developer has created an online tool that will help any player customize their build. The tool lets the player select the skills they want on their build, what level of those skills they want active, and even how many total decoration slots they want, and then spits out all of the possible armor combinations that fit those parameters.

Obviously, this is still a work in progress, but it does get a lot of things right. The only issues we can see right now are that the tool does not account for the armor set bonuses (or jewels that unlock them) and it can deliver a ton of results if the search parameters are not narrow enough. The site also currently doesn’t have an option to look for armor with the highest defense, which is usually a big determining factor in the early part of the endgame. Eventually, as players unlock augmenting for armor and weapons, the defense stat becomes less of an issue, but early on it can be crucial.
Admittedly, players will need to know what skills they want and weapons they want to use before the tool will become totally useful, but it is still a great tool nonetheless. Getting a perfect build can give players a huge advantage over the monsters they face, allowing for more damage and greater protection from their unique attacks.
Monster Hunter World is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version is set to release in fall 2018.
