Ok so on MH.wiki i see narga X's defense is 90~112.
I've fully upgraded my armor and it only reaches 8 levels, 104 defense.
Same goes for all my other armors, max of 8 level upgrade.
Is there some other way that I'm not aware of to upgrade armor?
Edit: Nevermind. Got the answer. Gotta defeat Ukanlos to further upgrade.
