Aside from being granted by armor, skills are acquired by slotting your equipment with decorations. These can be obtained in a number of ways, including clearing main story quests and crafting them in the elder melder’s pot. The best way to farm decorations, however, is to run tempered monster investigations.
Tempered monsters investigations reward you with one to five reward boxes that contain either feystones or streamstones. When appraised, feystones turn into random decorations.
Decorations are categorized into four tiers: C, B, A, and S. Each tier has a specific chance of appearing after appraising various types of feystones. The chances that a reward will contain a specific feystone also depends on the threat level of the investigation.
Feystone Appraisal and Drop Rates
The table above should guide you on which tempered monster investigations to farm when aiming for specific decorations. Attack jewels, for example, are A tier decorations. They have the highest chance of appearing after appraising warped feystones. Doing threat level 2 investigations then will grant you the best odds of obtaining them.

The Greatest Jagras Event Quest
The Greatest Jagras is a limited event that lets you easily farm feystones even without completing the quest. You will be pitted against an incredibly large Great Jagras that hits very hard and has massive amounts of health. Be warned as the monster can easily take out even well-equipped hunters in one strike.
After it eats, the Great Jagras will vomit up to 30 feystones that you can pick up. They will mostly be mysterious and glowing feystones, though worn and warped ones can randomly appear. You can return to camp even without completing the objective to keep the ones you have obtained.
