Monster Hunter World Gathering Hub Area Guide

After you’ve completed the opening mission of Monster Hunter World, making it safely to the base camp with the Handler, you’ll be welcomed into the Gathering Hub area, which acts as the primary hub area for Monster Hunter World. It’s from here that you can undertake and embark on missions and expeditions out into the wilds, and you can also engage with NPC characters to forge new gear and boost your existing items, among other things.

Here’s a list of all the areas and NPC characters in the Gathering Hub, as well as their functions:

  • Tradeyard - The ground floor of the hub area, you can find all the Commanders of the expedition gathered around a planning table, as well as the Resource Center and the Botanical Research area.
  • Workshop - Here you can find both the Smithy and the Armory, both of which can both enhance your existing weapons and armor, as well as forging brand new items for you.
  • Canteen - As well as the Canteen, where you can purchase food platters that will give you boosts for you upcoming missions, you can also find the Handler sitting nearby, who will occasionally give you quests.
  • Gathering Hub - This is the multiplayer area, where you can go to hang out with people online, as well as take on special arena quests to earn rewards.

Note that there are quest boards at every above area throughout the hub, which you can use to either undertake story missions, side missions that have been assigned to you by NPCs such as the Handler, or join the online session of another player, helping them out in their monster hunt.

The actual Gathering Hub is located at the very top floor of the overall hub area, and it’s where you’ll go to meet up with other players online. Here you can take on other players in arm wrestling contests to prove your strength, or you can take on arena quests to earn special rewards. Use the Gathering Hub area to find a crew to embark online with, if you’re looking for players to join you to take down a specific powerful monster.

As you progress through Monster Hunter World, defeating more powerful monsters and completing quests, you’ll unlock new options within the hub area. This mainly pertains to the Workshop area, as for every new monster that you take down, you’ll be presented with the opportunity of creating a new set of armor from the Smithy. For example, if you defeat an Anjanath, you’ll have the option of creating the Anja armor set within the Workshop.

Now that we've concluded our guide on the Monster Hunter World Gathering Hub area, why not check out our additional guides on the expansive game, including our complete armor guide, as well as our guide on how to capture monsters.

    There is a lot of misinformation in this article. Most importantly is that the max rank is not 100, many people are already past this rank. While I'm not 100% certain as I've not achieved the rank myself, the max rank in previous titles was 999 and it is likely the same in this one. Also, while you have to reach certain milestones in the main story to unlock some armor/weapons, you do not have to defeat a monster to unlock the ability to see its armor/weapon sets, just get the correct parts from it out in the field or as a reward for breaking/slicing parts off of it during an expedition.

    This article is full of incomplete and incorrect information. I'd make a list, but it would be way too long.

    If you want useful information on the topic, go elsewhere.

    Whoever wrote this "article" is an idiot. Building an entire set, while aesthetically pleasing, is a horrible way to build for any weapon. You need to build around what skills you want if you want the true best armor for a weapon/build. Do not listen to this "article."

    I’m sorry this post is probably old but I’m a little shook because a lot of this is false info.... hr 100 is not that max what so ever it never has been
    ... Who told you only assigned quest give you hr points that is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard when talking about monster hunter ... everything gets added up
    now I believe the best way to get hr points is from farming tempered elder dragons or investigations with multiple monsters/tempered monsters

    Teostra and Nergigante have been seen together before considering they turf war. I believe it's triggered by going over a certain time on the quest you're on, but I'm not 100% positive
