Alongside the Hunt Board, two additional facilities will become available in the Hideaway, including The Patron's Whisper where you can claim your renown rewards and the Allant Reports which you might remember from the original Hideaway location.

How do Hunts work in Final Fantasy 16?

Hunts in Final Fantasy 16 are special bosses otherwise known as Notorious Marks, that are scattered throughout Valisthea for you to complete. Hunts do not work in the same way as quests, and all of the information you have is found on the Hunt Board itself. This means that you will have to find the Notorious Mark yourself based on the location information in the description, which can be quite challenging.

Furthermore, each Hunt has a lettered rating indicating its difficulty, so you can go for the big ones straight away, or start with the lesser options to get warmed up. You will earn more hunts as you progress through the game, and you can complete them in any order too.

You will earn a significant chunk of gold and increase your renown when you complete each hunt, so it is very much worth completing. Furthermore, they are great ways to earn XP quickly in Final Fantasy 16, as their status as bosses will give you a large amount after each fight.

So, that wraps up all of the Hunt locations in Final Fantasy 16, with all of the information you'll need if you were confused about the Hunt Board in the game too.
