Hunts (moburisuto, Mobu Risuto?) are a collection of sidequests found in Final Fantasy XII where the player takes on powerful creatures that usually cause problems for the public of a village or tribe or, in some cases, one person. The creatures being hunted are called ” Marks” and in certain instances, ” Elite Marks“. There are 45 hunts that players to complete. NPCs are a part of certain hunts to help the player’s group.
Hunting is a great way to earn ExP as well as LP as well as receive various rewards, like new equipment as well as extremely rare items. If the player finishes every hunt when they’re available, they might encounter the main story area and bosses more of a breeze. But, some hunts could be extremely difficult during the part of the game in which they first appear.
When a player has the information about the Mark via a notice board on a board that is located in the town, or an elite Mark that is from Montblanc the player must locate the petitioner and talk to the petitioner to accept the Hunt. Then, the player has to find the Mark as per the instructions or hints given by the person who petitioned and then defeat it.
Some hunts require the hunter to perform additional tasks, for example, the giving of items acquired to certain recipients. After completing the hunt the hunter has to report to the person who petitioned, and the person will award the reward. Each hunt comes with a distinct reward, however it’s not disclosed until the hunt is completed.

Marks are difficult to master. The difficulty grows exponentially with each rank. Parties with little experience should start with lower-ranking marks. The highest rank marks at the level of VII should be to be challenged by levels of character levels higher than 40. Marks typically excel in a single area, e.g. defense, and typically possess only one, or rarely two, skill or skill which could be dangerous if ignored.

A bill example (this version is intended for Gil Snapper.)
The Elite Marks are more risky than regular Marks with similar grade. The costs are for Elite Marks are given by Montblanc following Vaan becomes a member of the Clan Centurio (by attending the clan’s headquarters in the northern part of Rabanastre following having participated in the Rogue Tomato hunt). While Montblanc informs the player of his Elite Mark, in most instances, he is only acting as a mediator, and the player must contact the person who is petitioning to approve the hunt. Therefore, Montblanc’s role is exactly the same as the one of a petition board.
Elite Marks typically have a variety of superior attributes and skills. For instance they can be a rocktoise that Rocktoise can increase the current level of its owner multiple times during combat, and it can also double its level multiple times during battle. Trickster is an enormous pure white chocobo is able to disappear (though it is still possible to be able to discern its lines as they get close enough) which makes it impossible for characters to strike the creature until it is visible once more. Certain, like Gilgamesh, Shadowseer as well as Yiazmat are even come with an “boss” HP bar.

There’s not much to do in the initial Hunt battle. You should let Vaan make regular attacks against his Rogue Tomato and use a Potion to boost his HP if it is too low.
