What is the Buddy Plaza?

Buddy Plaza Overview

The Buddy Plaza is a newly introduced area in Monster Hunter Rise. As announced, it is a place for interacting and managing Buddies as well as where the Argosy will dock.

1 Area for Buddy Interaction
2 Place to deploy Meowcenaries
3 Trade with the Argosy

The Buddy Scout Facility

You Can Scout Buddies

Scout Buddies

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!

Change Buddy Search Preferences

Search Buddy Based on PreferenceEnlarge

You can set criteria when searching for Buddies. You can change aspects like Coat, Eyes, Ears, and others!

Scout Buddies Based on the Search Preference

Scout Palico Based on SkillsEnlarge

It seems you can scout Buddies from a list with each Buddy having unique skills and talents. Also, there seem to be a limit on the number of Buddies you can have in game. There is no exact number yet but a Buddy Limit is shown in the Buddy Scout facility video!

Buddy Handler Iori

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.

The Meowcenaries

Allows You To Send Out Your Buddies in Missions!

Tailrider Safari

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.

Meowcenaries Guide

Could Have Quest Support Capabilities

Details about the Meowcenaries remain scarce. We will update this when the full game drops!

Quest Support Capabilities

Since there are several creatures on the map that can be beneficial to the hunter, maybe the Meowcenaries are one of them. Meowcenaries may be dispatched in advance to aid in future hunts in that area - considering you find where they land!

Felyne Chief Kogarashi

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

Trade Items From Faraway Lands

Rondine Trading

The Argosy has not changed its purpose since its conception and we do not think it will change in Monster Hunter Rise. Trading with faraway lands for materials is a very useful feature in Monster Hunter that must remain unchanged. If it isn't broken, don't fix it!

Argosy and Trading Guide

Rondine the Trader

The Argosy is led by Rondine, a very beautiful lass that reminds us so much of Guildmarm Sophia. She will be in charge of all your trading needs as the representative of the Argosy!

Buddy Plaza Location

Probably Has Access In Kamura Village

The Buddy Plaza has several key features and services so we think this area will be accessible via Kamura Village. We will update this article as soon as new information comes to light!
