|MHF2/MHFU: Gathering Hall|
Pokke Village Gathering HallThe Pokke Guild outpost is the Guild's branch in Pokke Village. It is the biggest building in the village, located next to the Training Hall and behind the Peddling Granny with Piggie. Hunters can engage quests according to rank. The Guild also serve as the governing body in Pokke Village, calling hunters to repel beasts such as Lao-Shan Lung and Shen Gaoren from abolishing the fortress or town. The hall generally houses a counter that accommodates hunters through offering available quests, a shoppe selling several items and Treshi, the brother of the village chief, offering Treasure Hunting quests from various zones.
Quests are divided by level, to stop unprepared Hunters from tackling something far out of their league. Clearing certain quests, called Key Quests, will unlock an Urgent Quest. Upon completion of the Urgent Quest, your Hunter Rank will rise, and new quests will open. There are three levels of quests available to Hunters in Pokke Village. These are Low-rank, High-rank, and G-rank. Low-rank quests are given by the Guild Clerk in red. These consist of 1-5* quests, and should prove little difficulty for most Hunters. These quests are the only ones available to Hunters ranked three and below. In particular, Hunter Rank 1's have access to 1-3*, Hunter Rank 2 have access to 4* and below, and Hunter Rank 3 have access to 5* and below.
High Rank Quests, for Hunters ranked four and above, provide more of a challenge. The monsters are much tougher and deal more damage than their Low Rank versions. They also have better materials upon killing or capturing. Hunters will not usually start in the base camp, instead appearing in areas at random. Supplies also come in at random times. These quests are handled by the Guild Clerk in Green. Hunter Rank 4's have access to 6*, 5's to 7*, and 6's to 8*.
Finally, G-rank, handled by the Guild Clerk in Yellow. These quests are the most difficult the game has to offer, and are available to Hunters ranked seven and above. G-rank contains G*, G** and G***. Other than the obvious change in monster attack power and health, little else changes from High Rank. Again, the monsters yield better materials, which in turn produce G-level weaponry and armors. Monsters may also bring new attacks to bear in G-Rank, as well as several color variations and monsters only found in G-Rank. Hunter Rank 7's have access to G*, 8's to G**, and 9's to G***.
After completion of the final guild Urgent, G-Class weapons are unlocked, and armor can be upgraded a staggering amount of times.
