There are multiple buddy boards, one in Kamura Village and two in the Gathering Hub, so of course, there is also a Buddy Board in the Buddy Plaza. From here you can manage your buddies' equipment, behavior, and appearances.
Buddies have skills that can be equipped. These skills increase their stats, strengthen their resistances, or give their attacks better traits. You can choose which skills they have equipped via Buddy Board.
Palicoes and Palamutes can get equipment that raises their attack and defense made from monsters scraps. You can select what they have equipped through the Buddy Board.
Palamutes have unique equipment called Gear that affects how they fight. You can equip them with two gear pieces out of the variety that you'd unlock through the Buddy Board.
Iori is in charge of the Buddy Scout facility. He is a unique Kamura resident that has a great relationship with both Palicos and Palamutes.
You can scout or dismiss buddies (Palicos and Palamutes) in the Buddy Scout facility! This is the main way of searching for specific Buddies you want for your team!
You can set criteria when searching for buddies. You can change aspects like Coat, Eyes, Ears, and others! For Palicos, you can also choose their support types!
You can hire Buddies from a list where you can view all of their skills and support moves for Palicos. This will allow you to find Buddies that suit the build you want, though it is random so make sure to check back often if you can't find the perfect Buddies for you!
|What are Palicoes?
|What are Palamutes?
Special Buddies are Palicoes and Palamutes available in the Hire a Special Buddy option of the Buddy Scout, this feature was added during Update 3.1.
Special Buddies are free gifts from the developers which are suppose to help hunters fare in their hunts better.
You can rename your existing buddies by talking to Iori. Just choose the Rename Buddy option, pick which Buddy you will rename, then you can proceed to rename them.
You can also release a buddy from its service through the Dismiss Buddy option. Use this option when you've reached a maximum number of buddies and wish to hire a new one. Keep in mind that once a buddy is dismissed you cannot have it back.
The Meowcenaries functions like the Tailrider Safari in Monster Hunter World. You will be able to dispatch several buddies to areas and they would return with materials after some time.
You can also access the Meowcenaries in the Hub Prep Area.
Felyne Chief Kogarashi is a Palico character in charge of the Meowcenaries. He has a huge fan that he uses to boost Meowcenaries while riding kites! It looks very adorable!
The Argosy allows you to send Buddies on submarines to do trading expeditions in far-off places. They can return specific items you request, as well as bonus items depending on where they get sent!
You can also access the Argosy in the Hub Prep Area.
The Argosy is led by Rondine, a very beautiful lass that reminds us so much of Guildmarm Sophia. She is in charge of all your trading needs as the representative of the Argosy.
You can also buy special items in exchange for Points from her!
The Buddy Expert Shirubei can also be found in the Buddy Plaza. He'll be handling the training for your buddies so make sure that all your vacant buddies are toughening themselves out!
You can also access the Buddy Expert Dojo in the Hub Prep Area.
Occasionally after completing a number of quests Buddy Expert Shirubei will want to talk to you to give either a Buddy Ticket or a Lagniapple. Be sure to visit the Buddy Plaza from time to time to claim it.
The Cohoot Nest is located at the top of a huge tree with a Shrine near Kogarashi. Go around the tree and you will see vines stretching to the top of the tree. Climibing these vines will get you to the top and the Cohoot Nest.
Interacting with the Cohoot Nest give hunters a few random items. This nest replenishes its rewards after each quest. So make it a habit to check it after hunts!
There are other items not on this list as the Cohoot Nest item rewards are dependent on your RNG. But you will mostly see Lagniapples and Rations as usual rewards.
The Buddy Plaza is accessed to the right of Kamura Village, past the bridge leading into the wooded area.
You can also access the Buddy Plaza by fast-traveling to it via the map in Kamura Village.
The Buddy Plaza is available to be accessed once you have complete the training quest Back to Basics.
