Hunting Skill | Players can unlock the Hunting skill along with all other Trade Skills by completing the chain of Guide Quests beginning with Crown of Lakebar in Lakebar Village. Following this quest chain, Hunting is unlocked right before you leave for Bilbrin Forest, which is also the first location you can actually do some hunting in.
Unlike the other Trade Skills, Hunting does not have traditional material nodes. Instead, you can look for locations such as Bilbrin Forest where you can do some hunting. Hunting availability is indicated on your World Map. In such locations, you will usually find small game animals like Rabbits skittering about. To hunt these animals, switch to Trade Skill mode (default key ‘B’) and activate the Search ability. This places a crosshair marker above the heads of all critters in range that can be hunted. When you’ve found your target, use the Throw ability and aim your cursor near the animal, accounting for the short delay before throwing. Throw will deal damage in a small radius so you don’t need to be ultra-precise. Once a game animal is killed in such a way, they function much like the gathering nodes of other Trade Skills, allowing you to harvest materials from them.
