Introduction

  • Hunting Quests are great for farming specific Skill Enhancement and Ascension materials!
  • Furthermore, farming these materials will also result in plenty of experience drops and a few skill gems
  • The highest difficulty will reward the most materials - keep in mind that drop data for the Cause and Fes Ranks are not readily available and based on low sample sizes. 
  • Based on a Master's preferences, inevitably some materials are required in higher quantities than usual. "Bone Hell" is especially a common occurrence. 
  • Hunting Quests are amazing for pulling oneself out of these material hells, and make for rather excellent opportunities to munch on some apples.
  • For novice Masters, clearing these Hunting Quests can be rather time consuming (and challenging) as the mobs pack a lot of HP. 
  • Good luck!

Clairvoyance EX - To Apple or not to Apple?

  • Through the gift of Clairvoyance, the upcoming weeks of content will be reruns of the Rashomon event (next week) and the Onigashima event (in about 3 weeks). 
  • Masters unfamiliar with the event can take a look at the guide pages for the original run - the key point is that neither event is reliant on AP, but on BP, a special event resource. 
  • In addition there are some key observations we can make that make it a good idea to use apples on these hunting quests. 
  • Observation 1: Masters do not need to use apples to clear the upcoming events. 
  • Observation 2: Masters will not be able to receive materials introduced in recent singularities from the upcoming reruns.
  • Observation 3: The next lottery (lucrative!) won't be until September. 
  • Conclusion: Masters with a surplus of apples really ought to spend some - they will be restocked in the upcoming reruns! One can never have enough Evil Bones!

  • This node is just excellent, with good experience drops to boot (600%+).
  • Evil Bones are often required for popular Servants in extremely high quantities.
  • The best thing about this node compared to the Evil Bones Free Quests is that it is far less time-consuming to dump massive chunks of AP for Evil Bones.

  • The upcoming month will have only sparse opportunities to grab meteor Horseshoes.
  • This Quest drops nearly the same amount of experience as a run of the daily experience quest.
  • As a result, this quest is better than it looks.

  • A nice node for the highly prized Heart of the Foreign God, especially as Dragon Fangs are another common staple (especially for Altria Servants).
  • Don't expect high experience drops though.
  • The upcoming 2 reruns will have Hearts in their rewards/shops though!

  • There won't be an opportunity to stock up on Lanugos for a while, especially at such great rates.
  • The seed and experience drop rate aren't great, but they are decent bonuses.
  • Only heavily farm this node if one needs Lanugos.

  • There will not be an opportunity to get Scarabs for a while.
  • However, the node isn't great otherwise.
  • Farm these if there is a large immediate need, as Scarabs aren't usually in high demand.

  • There will not be any opportunities to snag some Gallstones in the upcoming reruns
  • In addition, the poisonous needle drop rate is at least okay (and they are often needed in vast quantities) while the experience drops are pretty good too (600%+).
  • As such, this is not a bad node at all especially for Masters who need some Gallstones.
