Hunting Quest IV (5/27 - 6/02 20:59 PDT)
This guide will briefly go over each section in the Hunting Quest.
We will focus on the highest Difficulty - Pride, as that yields the best rewards and drop rates.
Click on the categories below to jump to the desired section.
5/29 21:00 - 5/30 20:59 PDT
Farm Claws of Chaos, Refined Magatama, Berserker Gold Gems and Embers, and Saber Embers.
5/30 21:00 - 5/31 20:59 PDT
Farm Dragon's Reverse Scale, Deadly Poisonous Needle, Rider Gold Gem and Embers, and Lancer Embers.
5/27 01:00 - 5/27 20:59 PDT
Skeleton x 3 ~33k HP
Skeleton x 3 ~58k HP
Skeleton King ~ 191k HP + Skeleton x 2 ~60k HP
You will get an average of 2.5 bones per run at the average of 16 AP each.This is superior to the best Singularity Free Quest rate of 22 AP each.
Worse than farming Saber training grounds of 28%. Consider this a bonus added to farming bones if you get a drop.
You will get an average of 6.16 Saber Gold Embers per run. It is better than running Daily Quest Ember Gathering which are split between 3 different classees.
If you need Bones, then Absolutely Yes, even if you don't need any right now I do recommend farming them.
There are a lot of servants that require bones and they require lots of them.
Bone Drop Rates are one of the best and you're pretty much guaranteed to get at least a bone or two per run.
The Saber Gems and Embers are a nice bonus.
Servants that require Evil Bones (FGO Fandom Wiki):
5/27 21:00 - 5/28 20:59 PDT
Wave 1: Naga x 3 ~40k HP
Wave 2: Naga x 3 ~50k HP
Wave 3: Lamia Queen ~ 199k HP + Naga x 2 ~55k HP
You will get an average of 1.15 Serpent Jewels per run at the average of 35 AP each.
This is superior to the best Singularity Free Quest rate of 53 AP each.
Much worse than farming Caster training grounds of 76%. If you need Caster Gold Gems, go and farm Caster 40 AP Training as it has very good rates compared to other Class-specific Training Grounds.
You will get an average of 8 Caster Gold Embers per run. It is better than running Daily Quest Ember Gathering which are split between 3 different classes.
If you need Serpent Jewels, then yes, if you're not really in need them then no.
The Rate are certainly much better than Free Quests, but Serpent Jewels are fairly common in Events. In most cases you'll usually have a surplus laying around.
Caster Gems can be had at significantly better rates at Caster Training.
But if you do need Caster Embers, this is actually better than trying to farm Daily Ember Gathering.
However with 3rd Anniversary coming up in a month, we will have 1/2 AP Daily Quests and triple success rates, so maybe better to hold off til then.
Servants that require Serpent Jewel:
5/28 21:00 - 5/29 20:59 PDT
Rider Wyvern Minions and Archer Hydra Boss
Wyvern x 3 ~36k HP
Wyvern x 3 ~47k HP
Hydra ~209k HP
With an average of 122 AP per drop and a drop rate of 33%, this node is far superior than the best Singularity Free Quest which has an average of 167 AP per drop and a pitiful 13% drop rate.
You'll pretty much get 1 Fang per run fairly consistently and even multiple of them with an average 39 AP per drop. This is worse than Singularity Free Quest, which has 27 AP per drop but is much less consistent at 62% drop rate.
You will get an average of 3 Archer and 5 Rider Embers per run. You will also get Gold Archer Gems at a rate of 14% drop rate at 281 AP per drop. These are not anything special, but they are a nice bonus to add with the materials that you get with this node.
Overall I would say yes.
Fangs are required by a fair number of servants(especially Artoria servants) in large quantities.
Even though the AP cost per drop are worse than farming Singularity Free Quests, the drop rates are much more consistent and you also get Divine Wine Drops at significantly better rates than the existing free quests.
The Embers and Skill Gems come as a nice bonus to help you build up your servants.

Saber Samurai Minions and Berserker Chimera Boss.
Wave 1: Black Samurai x 3 ~47k HP
Wave 2: Black Samurai x 3 ~65k HP
Wave 3: Chimera ~ 250k HP
If you're looking for Claws, this is a fantastic place at 61 AP per drop.
This is superior to the best Singularity Free Quest rate of 90 AP per drop and a rate of 20%
Refined Magatamas are not as good at a rate of 74 AP per drop compared to 52 AP per drop from Shimosa Free Quest Farmin. The rates are a bit better at 54% compared to 41% from Shimosa.
You can expect an average of 3 Berserker Embers and 5 Saber Embers per run. Berserker Gold Gems drops at a 15% chance like the other Hunting Quest.
Considering what lies ahead in the future, the answer is Yes.
Claws are needed by many servants in the game at fairly high amounts for a gold material. Claws worth farming here as it is the best at its time.
Magatama will be required by quite a few of the upcoming welfare servants and some popular servants in the game in large amounts.
The Magatama rates are not as good as regular free quests, but the fact that you can get multiple in a run combined with the best Claw drop makes it still worth farming.
The Gems and Embers can be considered a bonus but should not be considered a major factor when farming Hunting quests.

Lancer Basilisk Minions and Rider Dragon Boss
Basilisk x 3 ~33k HP
Basilisk x 3 ~53k HP
Dragon ~198k HP
With an average of 118 AP per drop and a drop rate of 34%, this node is far superior than the best Singularity Free Quest which has an average of 1173AP per drop and a pitiful 12% drop rate.
Fairly high drop rate per run and even multiple of them with an average 48 AP per drop. This is worse than Singularity Free Quest, which has 34 AP per drop but is much less consistent at 63% drop rate.
You will get an average of 3 Rider and 5 Lancer Embers per run. You will also get Gold Rider Gems at a rate of 16% drop rate at 252 AP per drop. These are not anything special, but they are a nice bonus to add with the materials that you get with this node.
If you need the Reverse Scale and/or Needles, then of course you should use some apples.
Reverse Scales usually come commonly in events, but if you have a lot of Artoria Faces or Dragon Trait Servants, you will a substantial amount.
Poison Needles are not needed by many servants, but for the ones that do, you're going to need a lot of them and the amount from event shops are nowhere enough to fully power a single servant.
Servants that require Dragon Reverse Scale:
Servants that require Poison Needle:
5/31 21:00 - 6/02 20:59 PDT
Wave 1: Automata x 3 ~32k HP
Wave 2: Automata x 3 ~50k HP
Wave 3: Coloratura ~ 209k HP + Automata x 2 ~70k HP
You will get an average of 1.3 Eternal Gear per run at the average of 31 AP each.
This is superior to the best Singularity Free Quest rate of 46 AP each and 46% drop rate.
Much worse than farming Assassin training grounds of 25%. If you need Assassin Gold Gems, go and farm Assassin 40 AP Training.
You will get an average of 8 Assassin Gold Embers per run. It is better than running Daily Quest Ember Gathering which are split between 3 different classes.
Yes, a lot of good and widely used Servants in the game require gears.
The last lotto for gears has already passed and there will not be another one for gears for a long time.
Assassin Gems and Embers can be considered a bonus, but the Gear Drops are the real prize and they are the best that they will ever be.
