Part 1:  Information


1. Overview

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! Every one of these monsters has a total of five artifacts for you to collect; three epic and two relic.

In addition to monster bounties Trion had also added in content for the Player Versus Player audience in the form of bounties also. Each soul for every class has its own collection of five also  to be collected as well. These are dropped from matching classes during player versus player battles.For example if you kill a player who is playing Marksmen as there primary soul, they have a chance to drop a Marksmen bounty. If you do not like player versus player content but would like to collect these they can be traded, as all bounty artifacts may, on the auction house.

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 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 after you have claimed it and you still get the drop.

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,  calls, other fluff or fun items as well as heads of these captured monsters that you may display proudly in your dimension. In addition turning in these sets will net you achievements points as there are 600 achievement points to obtain. These vary in collecting 20, 40, 60, 80 or even 100 to collecting all of the player versus player bounties

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. ..

2. Manual Macros
To facilitate locating a Most Wanted enemy it is helpful to have a macro that will automatically target. Since there are only a thee Rival Bounty Hunters in Planetouched Wilds all of these can be put into one macro or even incorporated into another of your existing sets.

    GuidesForRift [GFR] also has been implementing an addon that has been built from the rare tracker addon We have put all the locations that we know of in this so you can just run around and spam a button.
