Tips and Misc

  • Take wild huntsmen banners to the 3 different portals in the swamp.
    • Plant as many banners as you want, the huntsmen will appear next to their banners.
    • Optionally find more huntsman banners by eliminating named monsters in the swamp. The banners are inside Treasure Bags that drop when the named monster is killed.
    • Every party member can pick up the banners, which means you can deploy more around to help kill her and the redcaps.
    • Using the map will show the current location for Beatrice as a red dot.
  • Attack Beatrice and eliminate the Redcaps that spawn from her.
    • Optional: eliminate her before 10 minutes elapse to impress the leader of the Wild Hunt.
  • Find what Beatrice is looking for.
    • The thing you are looking for is a scroll (Note).
    • It doesn't always spawn in the same place, but (usually?) it's on higher ground.
    • To make things easier, when you're close, the narrator will announce...
"The air nearby tingles with magic. It seems to be coming from up above. If you got to higher ground, you could look for the source of this disturbance."
  • Also, an icon appears at the top of your screen (where debuffs are usually located) while you are within a certain range of it.
  • Lastly, speak with the Summer Court Emissary, back near the entrance and the Hunt Master, for quest completion and your end chest.
