MHR Buddy Handler Iori Location - Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise Buddy Handler Iori is an NPC that you’ll have to talk to fairly early in the game, in order to complete one of the quests. The game points you towards the Buddy Plaza, which is where Iori is in MH Rise, but doesn’t tell you where that is. To top it off, you can’t fast travel there before you visit the location for the first time. It can be a bit tricky, especially for people new to Monster Hunter. That’s why we put together our MHR Buddy Handler Iori Location – Monster Hunter Rise guide.
