How to Unlock the USJ Armor Sets and Weapons?
Similar to past USJ collabs, hunters will have to get particular crafting items that can only be received as rewards from the USJ special events. We’ll be coming up with a guide on how to complete the quests and craft the armors and weapons as soon as the quests come up.
