    Quick thoughts on Monster Hunt.

    Decent concept: Earn bonus goodies while doing normal quests / farming.

    Reality: Low drops. Surprise :) ... No hunting badges dropped in Varholm (Day). I then spent about an hour between Cradle of Life and Cradle of Death, came away with 33 badges = 10 draken.

    Let's say 30 badges per hour. The first decent reward is the double Simple Gem bags at 350 badges = 11-12 hours of grinding. Oh and a cumulative 70 draken by then, too.

    Maybe I was unlucky? Slow? In the wrong map (I'll try a PW map or two tomorrow, time permitting)? Hopefully you'll enjoy a better drop rate.

    On the other hand, these are passive, incidental rewards. BP isn't going to make any money off of these throw-away "events" as there's nothing unique to covet (purchase), no realm frag or other key requirements, no amphorae to open, so I have to assume they're trying to actually give back to the player community. Kudos for that, BP.

    ADDENDUM: I'm a new Lvl50 Ranger, not particularly skilled nor well-equipped. Did Q3M1 Painful (lowest level) ... took me over a half hour (yes, I'm that weak), got 23 badges. I died trying to kill the end-boss, so don't know if that might have given me a few more badges. I did get a 5x badge drop in a basic mob on that map, so PW apparently has a chance of higher per drop badge volume. Still, I won't make any special effort to complete this non-event, as I do have to sleep and work :)

    I just spent 1hr farming. tried q1/q3/lortac maps and in just over 1hr got 42 badges. so even if I happened to be online for the entire duration of event, at that rate there is no chance of finishing.

    like you said there might be a particular map where drop is higher so if anyone knows then please say

    Anyone know use of hunting badge? Are they gonna open a shop selling item with hunting badge? And what is the golden badge reward at 550/550?

    For anyone who's wondering, badges don't seem to be dropping on event maps. I did 3 runs of varholm because I wanted to get rid of leftover scrolls and 5 runs of blackborg to farm fairy wood. 0 drops in those 8 runs.

    If you collect 1/10/50 of those golden badges, you unlock the new titles "monster hunter", "superior monster hunter" and "King of the monster hunters". I don't think they serve any other purpose.

    Indeed ... they are just achievements.

    To all those who are having hard time getting insignia:
    PW not always give best drops ... try other maps. There is one killer map that is so easy and rewarding for all endgame players.

    A map where you start the Jullov's quest.

    I'm I'm interpreting your correctly, this is the same map where you suggest we farm Realm Frags? I ran for 30 minutes, got 23 badges, so, yes that's an improvement, but by about 50%: Essentially 30 per hour in the other maps I tried, but 45 per hour here. That still puts 2 simple gem bags at about 8 hours. On a map with minimal glyph / coin rewards.

    Again, I farm more slowly than you, both in terms of my damage and my foolish need to pick up every crappy drop. Let's say you're twice as fast as me: Are you willing to grind on that mediocre map for 4 hour for 2 simple gems when you could be doing dozens of PW boss runs instead?

    I just don't see the value for either lower level or end-game players.
