Notorious Marks and Hunt Board Explained

Notorious Marks is your best bet, and it’s like this with most rare crafting materials. You can find the Hunt Board in the Hideaway, where it will continuously be updated as you play through the main story. Players can officially unlock the Hunt Board during the “Gathering Storm” main quest, which is the 29th main mission in the game (under halfway through the story.)

This Hunt Board will provide clues on where you must head to find the Notorious Mark you wish to battle. Each Notorious Mark will provide a high boost in experience points, a rare material, a large amount of Gil, and Renown that can be used at the Patron’s Whisper in Hideaway. Renown is especially useful as trading it in will provide beneficial rewards that sometimes can be an accessory or more materials for your crafting needs — as well as necessary materials for upgrading your gear at the Blacksmith.

You’ll know you have encountered a Notorious Mark when a pop-up message shows you their rank. Ranks range from C to S — where S is the most challenging out of the bunch to defeat!
