Raise Your Hunter Rank

During this event there are quests that are great for raising your Hunter Rank. As your HR goes up more quests will unlock so those who have a low HR should take advantage of these quests!

Collect Augmentation Materials

At the Fun Fright Fest, quests where Augmentation Materials are easily obtained will be made available. We recommend making sure to take advantage of this availability due to the rarity of Augmentation Materials.

Farm Monster Materials

During the Fun Fright Fest, quests wherein you can easily obtain monster materials will be available. You can hunt monsters whose material is more difficult to collect, such as Xeno’jiva.
