As you make your way through the story of FFXIV you would have at least heard about Hunts perhaps through players or various NPC quests. ‘Hunts’ is a term to describe a group effort to kill some B, A or S rank boss. World Bosses also fall into this category, though the rewards are different.
Difference between Elite Marks:
− B Ranks can spawn at there constant spawn points and they respawn after 5 seconds
− A Ranks can spawn at there constant spawn points after the respawn time (Time is different)
− S and SS Ranks wont spawn randomly, they only spawn
− B and A Ranks are only visible when you reach a certain range
− S and SS Ranks are visible on the complete area
Why do Hunt Trains at all?
Hunt trains are the quickest method to farm GIL in the form of clusters for Materia, Tombstones and current expansion Tombstones. It will be the only way to farm the expansion’s Hunt currency such as Nuts for Shadowbringers. You are able to visit other worlds on your datacenter, therefore conductors perform trains consecutively until their respawn in 8hours. Not all servers run trains every 8hrs, but this can give you an idea on how frequent Hunts can occur. You can easily max 2000 Tombstones in one day of trains though you will likely not hit all trains.
With world travel and datacenter travel, trains are even more accessible now ever than before!
Setup Sonar in Dalamud. The guide for this is available here, search for the plugin “Sonar”.
Sonar can be setup with notifications for S rank, also checking for specific Fates or World Bosses. This can be helpful for doing your ARR relic as some fates spawn at different times, thus these fates can be checked across different worlds.
