Hunt Icon

The Hunting Grounds are a group of islands in The Shattered Isles home to many Behemoths. Slayers can travel to the various islands and slay Behemoths continuously, without having to return to Ramsgate. The Hunting Grounds have replaced Pursuits and Patrols as the primary method of progression for earning reagents, Rams, and more.

The islands in the Hunting Grounds all contain journal entries hidden among the environment. Additionally, patrol chests can be found in various locations, which can be unlocked using Patrol Keys IconPatrol Keys.

Islands[ | ]

There are currently 21 different islands that make up the Hunting Grounds.
