Hub Quest Guide and List of Hub Quests

This is an article about Hub Quests in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). If you want to know more about Hub Quests and their rewards, read on!

What are Hub Quests?

Multiplayer Quests Attached to Hunter Rank

While Village Quests serve to advance the story, they are single-player only, leaving the multiplayer portion of Monster Hunter Rise within the Gathering Hub through Hub Quests. These quests are totally doable solo, but you may need to advance through the Village Quests and get better gear as the difficulty ramps up much quicker.

Before Update 2.0, Hub Quests are the only method of gaining Hunter Rank which is capped at HR 7. With every Urgent Hub Quest you complete, your Hunter Rank will increase by one. After updating to Update 2.0, the Hunter Rank cap is unlocked and you will gain Hunter Rank points passively until HR 999.

Finish Urgent Quests to Proceed

Like with Village Quests, there are quests that you have to finish to unlock higher-level quests. These Urgent Quests are unlocked by completing a certain number of Key Quests, a specific subset of Hub Quests labeled with a red diamond.

Urgent Quests will usually pit you against strong monsters and will act as your final test to advance to the next hub quest level.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.
