 “New Most Wanted lists are in! Keep your eyes peeled for convicts that escaped from the Flatyard!”

Most Wanted are monsters that spawn throughout Telara. They have escaped from the Flat Yard, a prison for vile monsters who have been captured. When you slay one of these enemies they drop an artifact you can collect. Once you have collected all  five of these from a Most Wanted monster, three epic and two relic, they may be turned in for rewards in Tempest Bay. Artifact sets may also be collected from defeating enemies in PvP for each calling. There are 153 total bounty sets to collect.

Part One: Monsters Escape Jail: An Introduction
An Introduction


Cloak of the Bounty Hunter

Trion added a new set of artifact collections to Rift during its Version 2.7 Hotfix 4, entitled “Bounty Artifacts” that are collected from Most Wanted NPC’s in the world. These are monsters scattered throughout Telara that when killed and give experience will drop a bounty artifact.

Take up the job of a bounty hunter and collect the bounties from slaying escaped mobs! Once all parts to a full artifact bounty set are collected, you may turn them in for rewards. These rewards include a whole variety of animal sounds or calls as well as heads of these captured monsters that you may display proudly in your dimension.

100 Bounties Collected 

There are 600 achievement points to obtain. You will notice that in addition to the normal bounty artifacts obtained from Most Wanted Mobs, each soul for every class has its own collection of  to be collected as well. These are dropped from matching classes during player versus player battles.

For Most Wanted bounties the requirement that they be able to give experience is an important one to adhere to. For a enemy to give experience the nameplate of the mob must not be gray. It must be: Green, Yellow or Red and everyone in your group must also gain experience for this to drop.


The Most Wanted Mob must grant experience to whoever initially claims the mob.  It does not have to give experience to everyone who hits it. Therefore, if you claim a mob as a level 19, someone who not in your party who is level 70 may kill it and you still get the drop.

The Most Wanted Mobs are located throughout the original Telara and Storm Legion Zones. According  to the lore these monsters were locked up and escaped prison, spreading throughout the world.  They appear to have returned to a certain area, namely by level or associated zones. For example both, Stonefield and Gloamwood are the same level range as each other but are controlled by opposite factions. Both of these zones  contain the same most wanted mobs.

The original zones have spawn points that a variety of different mobs may spawn in. Storm Legion has specific spawns points that spawn specific mobs but are far harder to find due to different spawn requirements. This guides only covers the original 11 zones in Rift.


How to Identify

Wanted Nameplate

    Identifying a bounty mob is normally quite easy, especially since an update was made to them.   In an update during April of 2018, all most wanted mobs were turned non-aggressive. Because of this there name now appears as yellow rather than red .  Many of these mobs will look out of place or be a different level compared to the rest of the mobs in the area. Each zone has a set level that all of them will spawn as.

    Underneath each of their names and above their head is a Most Wanted indication, making this one of the easier to find. As you can see in the pictures posted these mobs also have an elite portrait  They should be easy to distinguish from the mobs surrounding them.



Locating Wanted Mobs

If you look at Appendix B, “Most Wanted Mobs”,  you will notice that there are almost one hundred of these sets each with a total of 5 artifacts to collect. Thee are six sets of mobs each of which have eight possible spawn locations. The zones all have a different amount, from 2 to 8 possible locations.

In each of the spawn points one mob  from a group can spawn. They will always be the same level and can spawn in any of the spots that the group it belongs to is assigned (here we refer to this as a Spawn Table). Each of the categories below have a total of eight (8) points that they can spawn in. When one of them is killed within a short amount of time (around 30 minutes), another one will spawn in one of the points. The following table displays which  zones share the same spawn tables and the level.


Respawn Time
From personal, observed experience the respawn timer on these is as low as 30 minutes. It is believed that this is the respawn time for all Most Wanted in the original zones.


Zones That Share Spawn Points
Level 19 Freemarch, Silverwood
Level 27 Stonefield, Gloamwood
Level 30 Scarlet Gorge
Level 35 Scarwood Reach
Level 35 Iron Pine Peak, Moonshade, Droughtlands
Level 50 Shimmersand, Stillmoor, Ember Isle


Jumping Shards The Fewest

      In the zones covered here there are 8 spawns per group. Checking 8 spawn points for 7 shards means that there were 56 total locations to check for one group that a possible 7 Most Wanted could be in.  As you start and go through and find one on a shard, unless you are going very slow, you can skip going back to that shard later on. This is because there is a set amount of time that must pass called a respawn time before another one may spawn on that shard.  An excel file or Google Sheet is handy to keep track of what shards you have already checked or found Wanted Monsters on.

    A sample version of what one could look like is located to the right. Notice there is a check box and next to it a blank space that we can use to record the time we kill a Most Wanted on that shard. This shows a portion of the total spreadsheet of the zones that go through Scarlet Gorge. As you can see we have already checked off Stonefield and Gloamwood because they have all been killed and have notated the time so we  know when the Time of Death (ToD) was. This is not as important with less people camping now but it is a good practice when camping highly competitive monsters. With a ToD and a respawn timer you know exactly when or at what time it is eligible to pop.


Part Two: Targeting to Terminate: Macros
An Introduction

Wanted Targeting Macros

To facilitate locating a Most Wanted enemy it is helpful to have a macro that will automatically target any close to you.  Here are six macros, one for each set of Most Wanted. These macros are unable to be combined into one giant one due to limitations on the amount of lines it can have.
