Jump to: navigation, search

The Head Hunter is an NPC that gives the Bounty Hunter quests (or "BH" for short), which involves the killing of up to three bosses each day. The Head Hunter is located in the center of Archosaur (554, 653), on the East side of the platform with the Warsoul Spirit. It is also found in Etherblade (430, 890), City of the Lost (253, 649), Plume (324, 423), Raging Tides (656, 143), and Tellus (384, 230). Characters level 40 or higher are able to access these Daily Quests.

A few other bits of information:

  • He offers a different bounty to each level range (40-49, 50-59, etc.).
  • Rewards also vary depending on your level.
  • You can take the quest several times each day - up to three for levels 40-90, up to twice for levels 90+.
    • One of the rewards for completing the first bounty in a day is a Bounty Order allowing you to take the second, etc..
    • The Bounty Order only lasts 30 minutes, so take the new quest right away.
    • The higher the Bounty Hunter number (I, II, or III), the lower the rewards.
  • This NPC was implemented into the game as of August 5, 2009 (Patch 168).

Stacking Bounty Hunter Quests

Stacking your Bounty Hunter quests allows you to save time and money, since you usually only have to do one trip to collect three (or possibly more) bounties per day. New Bounty Hunter quests can be taken as long as you:

  1. don't already have that quest of the same day and
  2. didn't already complete that quest that day (with the day ending at midnight, server time).


To stack your Bounty Hunter quests, simply follow these steps in order:

  1. Turn in any completed Bounty Hunter quests from previous days.
  2. Collect the new Bounty Hunter quests for today.
  3. Complete those Bounty Hunter quests before midnight server time (after that, finding a squad may become more difficult, as they may have different bosses).
  4. Do not turn in any completed Bounty Hunter quests other than BH III on the same day you collected them.

Another advantage to stacking your BHs is that, not only do you save time and teleport fees, but if everyone in your squad stacks their BHs, then you can do the bosses in any order. This is quite useful in, for example, BH51, where doing Wyvern first is quite difficult.

The down-side to stacking your BHs? You miss two BH IIIs and one BH II getting everything set up the first two days, which isn't a big deal for most people. Also, if you forget to wait and accidentally turn in a BH I or II twice on the same day, you may waste a Bounty Order. Other than that, it's much faster, cheaper, and less hassle than turning in BHs three times in a row.

Mixed Stacks

Sometimes you will find you will get a mixed FB stack, with bosses in different instances. An example would be the level 70-79 BH with Drake, Zimo, and Pyro, where Drake and Zimo are in FB59 and Pyro is in FB69.

First of all, there seems to be some confusion with some players about the terminology concerning FBs and BHs when you get mixed stacks. Simply stated, an FB is an instance and a BH is a Bounty Hunter quest. So, when you get a mixed stack like Drake, Zimo, and Pyro, you have 2 Bosses in FB59 and one in FB69. Since the bosses are in their respective FBs (instances) it should be expressed as having "BH59 and BH69" or "BH59 + Pyro", not just "BH59".

Some players treat the stack as a BH unit and this will cause confusion when looking for a squad. Not all players doing bosses in the same instance are going to also do bosses in other instances of the same stack. Players with a mixed stack may frequently find themselves having to do them separately in two or more different squads.

When you get a mixed stack you can do the whole stack in the same day (preferred) or skip any bosses that may be hard to do or hard to find a squad. In higher level BHs the stack may have all the bosses in different places. When you postpone doing a BH in the stack you may end up with 3, 4, or 5 BHs in the stack. When this happens simply make sure that you leave one BH I and one BH II to turn in the next day and you won't lose your BH stack.
