Village Quest Guide

This is an guide to village quests in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). Follow our guides to learn how to complete each Village Quest in the game, and which Key Quests are required to unlock the Urgent Village Quests!

Village Quest Basic Information

Are Village Quests Multiplayer?

Village Quests are available in single-player only

Village Quests Solo

In Monster Hunter Rise, quests are divided into village quests and gathering hub quests.

Village quests are solo-only while Gathering Hub quests are usually geared towards multiple players. This is in contrast to Monster Hunter World where story quests can be done in both solo or multiplayer! As you progress through the game you will be required to complete a certain amount of what are known as Key Quests, marked by a red icon, in order to unlock the next level of quests.

If you're looking to get into the multiplayer aspect of Monster Hunter Rise right away, it's possible to jump right into the Hub Quests instead!

Village Quests are Easier than that of Past Games

In Monster Hunter Rise, it seems they made Village Quests easier than Village Quests of past entries! If you are just beginning to dive into the world of Monster Hunter, it is a good idea to start with Rise's Village Quests.

Finish Urgent Quests to Proceed

Urgent 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 Village 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 village quest level.

Village Quests in Previous Games

Hidden 'Advanced' Village Quests

In past Monster Hunter games, hidden quests called Advanced quests can be unlocked by clearing conditions after the story. These quests have very high difficulty and are considered village quests so they can only be done solo!

The first Advanced Village Quest arrived in Monster Hunter Rise with the introduction of Advanced: The Veterans' Gala in Update 2.0, unlocked by clearing all other Village Quests!

Upgrade Quests

Upgrade Quests

In the past Monster Hunter games, upgrade quests are village quests that upgrade village facilities to help the hunter. Facilities like the Canteen will have more ingredients and the Farm will allow you to grow more items!

      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.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
      Arm1: 35, 70, 50
