Seliana is a Location in Monster Hunter World (MHW). 


A new base built as the headquarters for investigations in the Hoarfrost Reach. It's complete with a variety of useful facilities and features to rival those of Astera, all of which are powered by the land's plentiful geothermal energy.

Seliana is the new base location introduced in the Iceborne Expansion. In World Map it is located on the West side of the world, on a separate island.

Seliana also features its own hunter's room, which can now be fully customised. It's possible to switch a room's theme, furniture, wallpaper and decor. New furniture can be gained by completing quests and deliveries, and each furniture type features a selection of colours and patterns to choose from. Endemic Life pets can be placed in several locations. You can also set your room to Public, so other players in the same Online Session can visit your room.

Seliana Gathering Hub hosts a wide variety of services, and is a much more seamless part of the base than Astera Gathering hub.

      On my post story characters on both PS4 and PC the music is permanently this more serious music like something is about to attack Seliana and it gives me anxiety, can I know what's causing this? I don't like playing with the music off so if there is a way to change it please tell me.

        Seliana in Japanese is セリエナ. Some people maight feel doesn't care, but I felt uneasy so let me leave this comment here.

          I feel like the guy who wrote the top and the bottom are 2 different people, because everything at the top is wrong. Seliana is not in Astera, and it is not an online hub. It is essentially a replacement for Astera, with practically everything Astera had. It also has its own new gathering hub that has everything the bottom info was talking about. It does not have lifts and doesn’t have a fourth floor.
