Jewels in Monster Hunter World mean you can equip new abilities to both your weapons and armor items, giving them nice boosts while you’re using them out in the field. In this Monster Hunter World Jewels guide, we’ll be walking you through how to unlock Jewels, as well as how to earn Jewels quickly and easily, giving you a lot of new item bonuses to play around with.

If you instead need anything else on the complex game of Monster Hunter World, including how to track down monster easily with Scout Flies, as well as how to capture monsters without fail using the Shock Trap and Tranq Bomb technique, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Jewels Guide

If Jewels don’t mean a thing to you yet in Monster Hunter World, then don’t worry, because they’re not actually unlocked until near 30 hours deep into the massive game. Once you go up against Zorah Magdaros for a second time in the Monumental Task mission, you’ll be tasked with taking down a powerful Pukei-Pukei straight afterwards. Once you’ve slain the Pukei-Pukei, you’ll then be tasked with tracking down the mystery Rathian tracks, which in turn unlocks High Rank content in Monster Hunter World.

At this point, you’ll have unlocked new High Rank armor in Monster Hunter World. While High Rank armor sets provide obvious defense boosts over their Low Rank counterparts, they also offer Jewel slots. While you’re at the Smithy in Astera you can use these Jewel slots to equip any Jewels you have in your inventory But how can you reliably obtain Jewels in Monster Hunter World, and what are their actual benefits? Read on for all that and more.

How to Farm Jewels in Monster Hunter World

To reliably earn Jewels in Monster Hunter World, you’ll have to undertake certain High Rank activities. These include:

  • High Rank story quests.
  • High Rank optional quests.
  • High Rank Investigations.
  • Elite Bounties.

If you head to the Quest Board in Astera and select the ‘Optional’ tab, you can then bring up a list of all the available optional quests, which will be ranked by difficulty. The High Rank optional quests are denoted by their orange stars, whereas the Low Rank quests are denoted by blue stars. This is also the same with story quests of Monster Hunter World, as you can tell if they’re High Rank quests by whether they have an orange star next to them on the listings page of the Quest Board.

Whenever you complete a High Rank story quest or optional quest, you’ll be taken to the ‘Appraisal Box’ screen, where you can redeem any Jewels earned from completing the quest by selecting the ‘Appraise All’ option near the bottom of the box. Take care to select each Jewel and add them to your inventory, as selecting the option at the bottom again will immediately sell all the Jewels you’ve just earned.

To add Jewels to your weapons and items, you’ll have to head to the Smithy in Astera. At this point, you can see whether your weapons or armor items have any Jewel slots by whether they have the ‘Slot’ denotion under their name and stat listings in your inventory. If they do, you can head down to the ‘Set Decorations’ option from the main menu of the Smithy, and add Jewels on to your items, giving them various statistical boosts, which we’ll explain more about just below.

Monster Hunter World Jewels Explained - Jewel Stat Boosts

The aim of attaching Jewels to your weapons and armor is to give them statistics boosts, but what can these boosts be? There are plenty of Jewels offering various bonuses for you, but they all fit into one of the categories just below:

  • Attack - Boost Attack, Weapon Sharpness, etc.
  • Defense - Boost Defense, Boost Elemental Defense, etc.
  • Health - Increased Health, Boost Health Recovery Speed, etc.
  • Stamina - Increased Stamina, Increased Stamina Regeneration, etc.
  • Gunner - Firepower Boost, Boost Ammo Types/Coatings, etc.
  • Preventative - Prevents against Sleep/Poison/Paralysis, etc.
  • Gathering - Increase Carving Speed, Boost Fishing, etc.

Based on the Jewels you have in your inventory, you’ll want to select which ones benefit you the most. For example, if you’re wielding Dual Blades then you won’t want to equip a Jewel that boosts ammo firepower for Bowguns. It’s also worth mentioning that you don’t outright bind a Jewel to an armor/weapon item, so you can attach and detach them freely at the Smithy whenever you wish.

We might be all done with our Jewels guide for Monster Hunter World, but if you need anything else on the game, why not continue ahead to our complete weaponry guide, or or full armor guide, analysing every armor set in the game.

    There is a lot of misinformation in this article. Most importantly is that the max rank is not 100, many people are already past this rank. While I'm not 100% certain as I've not achieved the rank myself, the max rank in previous titles was 999 and it is likely the same in this one. Also, while you have to reach certain milestones in the main story to unlock some armor/weapons, you do not have to defeat a monster to unlock the ability to see its armor/weapon sets, just get the correct parts from it out in the field or as a reward for breaking/slicing parts off of it during an expedition.

    This article is full of incomplete and incorrect information. I'd make a list, but it would be way too long.

    If you want useful information on the topic, go elsewhere.

    Whoever wrote this "article" is an idiot. Building an entire set, while aesthetically pleasing, is a horrible way to build for any weapon. You need to build around what skills you want if you want the true best armor for a weapon/build. Do not listen to this "article."

    I’m sorry this post is probably old but I’m a little shook because a lot of this is false info.... hr 100 is not that max what so ever it never has been
    ... Who told you only assigned quest give you hr points that is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard when talking about monster hunter ... everything gets added up
    now I believe the best way to get hr points is from farming tempered elder dragons or investigations with multiple monsters/tempered monsters

    Teostra and Nergigante have been seen together before considering they turf war. I believe it's triggered by going over a certain time on the quest you're on, but I'm not 100% positive
