The next phase of Final Fantasy XV’s Timed Quests brings us a Hunt Contest By Tony Garsow on May 2, 2017 at 12:40 AM

Final Fantasy XV‘s Timed Quests continue with a new phase that involves a Hunt Contest. You’ll be able to track down rotating targets in various locations around the kingdom of Lucis to earn QP. This currency can be collected and redeemed for various prizes in the camp menu — we’ve listed them below. In this contest you can win yourself the fabled Afrojack sword. You can also compete for the best score against players from around the globe by checking out the leaderboards included.

Keep in mind that the time to redeem prizes for Round 1 of the Fishing Contest ends on May 8th. The deadline to redeem prizes for Round 1 of the Hunt Contest will end on May 15th. Note that you can also redeem prizes from an overall prize pool in the Timed Quest menu.

    June, Prompto
    September I guess Ignis.
    December I guess somewhat else.

    2018 FFXV Definite Edition.
    Maybe that will be the ready FF xv

  • Serj_Angelo

    The one hour limit per hunt is a really questionable choice on their part.
    I just want to travel around and kill stuff in my spare time, without having to wait.

    Honestly prefer the previous format of the timed quests when you get the reward for completing them right away, and replay them as much as you want if you find them interesting.

  • Gabriel Hage

    Now we are talking!

  • Invictus

    Sorry did I read “Kingdom of Lucis”? Is it the same old map or is there a new expandable map we can do hunts? If that is the case, this is an update worth looking into.

  • Invictus

    Accurate. I’d probably smile next year since I can play it completely with no freaking DLCs to wait.

  • stevenm281

    nah, it merely refers to the explorable part of Lucis which is still Leide, Duscae, and Cleigne.

  • Invictus

    Oh. I thought it was a new area. Dang it.

  • Dod

    Oh, are we ?

  • Dann Chronos

    persona 5 is way better than this shit

  • Syul

    Had some fun today going for the hunts~

    A shame that I couldn’t pick up points by fishing, though… I messed up with the dates and I lost my oportunity of stacking points while trying to complete the fish collectiion.

    Problem is, right now there’s a lvl 140 Behemoth I don’t even dare to fight because I’m still lvl 100, which means no more points for me until they change the temporary missions… Bye, Afrojack sword… :/

  • Vallen

    So you can do a hunt every hour? Ughh

  • Mel TIng

    Where to locate those hunting??i finish 1..but can’t get the next

  • Syul

    You mean, the Cactuars’ one?

    I had problems with that temporary hunt, didn’t understand why the monsters weren’t in the area, why it wouldn’t trigger. And well, after 2h or so, I discovered they were up the rock arcs xD

  • Tony Garsow

    Sorry for the confusion, but yes, I’m referring to the areas of Leide, Duscae, and Cleigne.

  • Yuntu

    Then go play Persona 5 and stop waisting your time below an article for a game you find is shit.

  • Kiera

    Did the first 3 Hunts and now have the Behemoth but guess I will not fight it since the last Time it was unbeatable for me and now the DLC Sword is forbidden. Hope there will be still much Timed Quest so I can get the Sword later.

  • Kiera

    So 2018 I will start my New Game+ ^^

  • x5kevleo

    Yeah, I’ll pass. I’m too busy playing persona 5 now which has a better story.

  • •december

    This looks a lot better than the fishing contest
    I haven’t had time to play either :'(
    Do they disappear after a week like last time?

  • Lucas Nóbrega Maia

    I dunno , personally I think it’s just a different way of reward system.
    The previous one were great , but it was limited to hunts , this new one not only forces you to upgrade skills or levels , but also make other types of quests

  • Casper

    Well luckily people can play a game, and go on their phone and type comments, and informing people to play Persona 5 instead of wasting their time with half-baked, under cooked fantasy XV.

  • Yuntu

    Yeah, that´s called shitposting.

  • Serj_Angelo

    I’d be open to like that if it brought something unique and interesting to the table. So far aside from the hunts the only thing was fishing which for me personally is not worth the time they ask us to spend to rank well and get good rewards.
    If the next one’s gonna be that pinball minigame or chocobo racing, I’ll honestly drop those quests altogether.

  • stevenm281

    If I’m here, its because I enjoy FF15, and I couldn’t care less about Persona 5 lame setting.

  • stevenm281

    Me, quite the opposite, I do NG+ until everything is out, then I restart from scratch to reexperience everything from the start with all the new additions.

  • Odin

    Persona 5 has a lame setting LOOOOOOOOOOL. Go back to playing casual games kiddo. I heard there is a new call of duty, go pre-order that, so u can understand simple stories. You’re right, persona 5 isn’t for you, to complex for your understanding.

  • Odin

    Absolutely correct. Persona 5 is the best JRPG in recent times, it deserves way more sales than it does now, way more recognition, but you know, casual gamers, outnumber the hardcore audience.

  • stevenm281

    You do realize that Call of Duty isnt an RPG?

    And btw, the complexity of a story has nothing to do with the setting itself. In Persona 5’s case, its a modern Japanese school setting, and to me, its lame, it doesn’t have any fantasy factor to it.

    Before insulting/jumping to conclusion, please take a moment to think of what you’re about to say and see if it makes sense.

  • you need to submit your score after every hunt completion. You don’t rank, you don’t score. once you’ve completed the submition. complete another hunt immediately and the go to the timed hunt screen and check your status. it will give you your rewards. you need to do the hunts witin a 60 minute time frame.

    The big money will be the scabre backs, try to start your hour there, and spend the rest of the time on the Dredd Behemoth. It takes the longest to kill, or start with the behemoth and go from there. Pro tip: Keep Ignis Overwhelm and any other character specials that do AoE. Equip the Shield of the Just for the sabrebacks so you can farm AP…Equip anything that will give you AP. Farm that AP bruh. Hope it helps.

  • Do you not have the Lasagna al Forno. It renders Dread Behemoth useless. You’ll only have to deal with his physical attacks, also stops friendly fire for ALL magic you cast. http://www.ign.com/wikis/final-fantasy-15/Lasagna_al_Forno

  • Go to the area shown in the quest. once there use your chocobo to get on top of the arches in the area. . There are 3 two on one side. One other other. You can warp strike to access it.

  • Do you not have the Lasagna al Forno. It renders Dread Behemoth useless. You’ll only have to deal with his physical attacks, also stops friendly fire for ALL magic you cast. http://www.ign.com/wikis/final-fantasy-15/Lasagna_al_Forno

    I’m posting this twice, because it’s that important and applies to your issue as well. Do not miss out 120,000 exp. Equip Nixperience to store that exp for Altissa hotel. X 3.0. Even if you don’t get the sword. Level fam. I’m 105 and i’ve kill the thing 22 times now. Get it fam. Get it.

    Pro tip: Keep Ignis Overwhelm and any other character specials that do AoE. Equip the Shield of the Just for the sabrebacks so you can farm AP…Equip anything that will give you AP. Farm that AP bruh. Hope it helps.

    FFXV is not bullshit. The game is good. Persona 5 is also good, but not the best thing ever created as some fanboys are trying to promote. Persona 5 has a better story than that of FF XV, it’s the fault of Square-enix itself that was to tinker with everything they had thought of in the beginning for FFXV. FFVersus XIII should never have become FFXV, they should not have messed with the original idea. Is it possible that by this time, Square-enix and his team do not realize the stupid thing they did? Or will be satisfied with the result of FFXV, we see people criticizing the game at all times. And we all believe we have the same common sense. The problem is in the plot, the way it was conducted, watch the promising trailer that was shown at E3 2013. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcUSXub_ypU And see what a marvel of gameplay, so much potential that it Had and was thrown in the trash. So many scenes cut and swallowed by the writer and the Tabata team. And now to arrange this? I think they better take care not to foul the name of FFVII, it’s sure to be another team developing, but I’m afraid of the current Square-enix.
    I’m not saying that FFXV is bad, but it’s less than everyone expected it to be. And this is not acceptable in an FF series game. Persona 5 deserves all this critical praise for not being afraid to be a real JRPG. Let this be a lesson for the industry and for the FFXV team, FFVII Remake and even the future FFXVI.

  • Syul

    Oh, and I noticed this message just now, ouch Q.Q

    Thanks A TON for the advice, and I do have it, luckily! If I can get it a try, for sure I’ll do D:

  • Kyle

    Or they don’t like the art style and could care less about your perceptions? Yeah, I think that’s it.
