Hunters in Distress

Jarrod Garripoli
Nathan Garvin

As you’re out exploring, you will sometimes hear the cries of someone that needs help, which will then trigger a new sidequest to appear in your log. These cries for help are from injured hunters and they usually require you to hand over a Potion or Antidote to them to complete the quests. Note that you’re only given a general search area in which to find the hunter, although some hunters are easier to find than others. Similar to the Broken Down Cars, there are a total of 10 quests in each main area (totaling 30) and some require you to finish previous ones and/or have reached a certain story chapter. So, if you can’t find a specific quest, make sure you do all others or progress in the main story.

After a years-long cold war between the Kingdom of Lucis and the empire of Niflheim over the world's last crystal, an armistice is finally agreed upon. As part of the peace treaty, the heir to the Lucian throne Noctis Lucis Caelum is to marry Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, an oracle from the imperial province of Tenebrae. After Noctis sets out to meet his betrothed, the treaty collapses. Merely a ruse to bring down the magical barrier protecting Lucis, Niflheim invades and takes the kingdom and the crystal for itself. With the treaty in tatters and his father and betrothed believed dead, Noctis must rely on his own tenacity and the support of his band of loyal followers to get him through what is to come.
