Where to Find Namielle in Monster Hunter World

Namielle won’t appear until you’ve reached a certain Assigned Quest as part of Iceborne’s main story: A Light From the Abyss. It’s quite late in the Master Rank Assigned Quests, which you can see below (courtesy of Fextralife):

As you can probably tell, you’ll have your work cut out for you before you can take down the watery Elder Dragon, Namielle. The fight itself isn’t too hard, particularly if you use poison or blast weapons (and plenty of patience). Waterblight can be an issue, so bring plenty of Nulberries to ward off stamina drain, as well as your trusty Baby Blanket… err, Temporal Mantle.

Watch out for her puddles, which she can remotely detonate. When she’s powered up with lightning, I typically keep my distance and let patience win out rather than tempting fate with a one-shot KO.
