|Contents of This Guide|
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 collecting five of these, three epic and two relic, they may be turned in for rewards in Tempest Bay. These same artifact sets may also be collected from defeating enemies in PvP. There are 153 total bounty sets to collect.

Other Parts and Postings
The vanilla zones in Rift had a much more reliable set of of spawn circumstances as well as the specific spawn points were much easier to find . This is not the same case with the Storm Legion zones. The zones are much bigger, the spawns seem unreliable and it is harder to distinguish any sort of real patterns that are consistent.
The Most Wanted here are of a higher caliber, and have sought out solace in more menacing lands. The respawn timers vary possibly with populations on shards. The monsters often roam around rather than hanging out in one place making going to one specific spot and spamming a macro almost a fruitless exercise. It will take much more tenacity and willpower to bring these monsters to justice here.
In other words we have not been able to to figure out correct conditions to find these, aside from locations and general times. It is only being displayed at the current time in this state to share information about the what is already known about the Storm Legion Most Wanted Monsters and to hopefully, as soon as possible, find more information about them such as spawn tables, respawn timers and other conditions.
Update:It seems that most of these do not tend to roam as much, or if at all as they used to. Everyone found in the past couple of months has been static, at the exact positions shown. We tend to believe that each zone has 8 spawn locations, and are working on finding them.
|1. Mathosian Edition Reference and Recap|
This is the second part in a two part series covering bounty artifacts and the Most Wanted Monster they drop from in Rift. The first part, Most Wanted And Bounty Artifacts, Mathosian Ed,covered many of the topics that first time bounty hunters would have such as:
- ..what is a bounty artifact?
- ..what is a Most Wanted Mob?
- ..where can I find a Most Wanted Monster and how do I identify it?
- ..what are the rewards for these?
- ..how can I catch one?
If you have any of these questions, please refer to the first guide Sections 1-3. The original zones released with Rift and Ember Island are covered in the Mathosian Edition of this guide. There spawn points, tables and times as well as anything else we currently know about them.
Part two of the first guide covers Mathosian Zones Most Wanted Locations. The rest of this guide covers the Storm Legion Zones and what we know about the locations. While we have tried our best to get as many as possible, this list is surely not complete. If you have any information please contact us and let us know so ot can be shared.
|2. Taking Fewer Shard Hops|
In the original zones there were 8 spawns per group. Checking 8 by 7 shards means that there were 56 total locations to check for one group that a possible 7 would be in. As you find one on a shard, unless you are going very slow, you can skip going back to that shard later on. An excel file or Google Sheet is handy to keep track of what shards you have already checked or found Wanted Monsters on.
This is what a sample version would look like. Notice there is a check box and next to it a blank space, as seen in the picture to the right. This shows a portion of it, the zones through Scarlet Gorge. As you can see we have already checked off Stonefield and Gloamwood because they have all been killed and we saved the time so we would 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.
|3 Macros: Targeting the Wanted|
| To facilitate locating a Most Wanted enemy it is helpful to have a macro that will automatically target any close to you. This macro, unlike the ones for the original zones, have all been combined into one macro because all of these mobs can spawn in any of the Storm Legion zones.
Remember to check around the area where the locations for these are listed below as some of these do path around.

|4. Timers and Spawn Tables|
I can almost say with certainty that this is a very sore and horrible subject to approach, especially with anyone trying to collect the last bit of bounties. From sources there has been reports that respawns can depend on the population of the shard, though with Storm Legion being several expansions old and the amount of people you see in the zones, I highly doubt it. If this is true it is a shame.
All the personal searching that any of us have done have not verified down any real respawns or tables they belong to. Again, research has shown in the past that it was believed to be one most wanted per continent, Dusken or Brevane. Regardless, they are painfully slow to find and get the artifacts from.
