It also should be noted that this FAQ *WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS*! So, if you don't
want anything spoiled for you, please hit the Back button on your browser.

Mark Hunting List
The main part of the document, and the part you came to see. I'll list the Hunt
name as it appears in the Clan Primer, the Mark(monster)'s name and where to
find it, the client's name and location, and your bounty for the hunt.

There are 45 total Marks in the game.

Please note that I won't go in-depth on how to kill the Marks, nor will I give
any additional help through e-mails. THIS IS ONLY A LIST. Please consult other
guides or the message boards for detailed battle strategies and any other
questions you may have.

The list will be sorted by Rank. The Clan Primer's list in the game sorts them
differently but I like the way this one turned out and since I took a look at
the official strategy guide and it sorts them by the Primer List in-game, I
don't want to seem like I copied it straight from there.

Here's the format for the list:

Hunt name - ( Monster/mark's name )
Monster's location (General area, specific zone) & extra notes about the mark
Client's name and location (General area, specific zone)

Also of note: I use the term "zone" meaning each specific area that has a
special name (i.e. Dalmasca Westersand, ^Galtea Downs^). "You may need to zone"
just means to leave the area using the blue dotted-lines then return.

ALSO ALSO of note: The regular marks are posted on the Notice Boards in the
various cities. The elite marks (the tougher ones, usually) are only given by
Montblanc in The Clan Hall in Rabanastre. He's not necessarily the client, but
he's the one the clients give their bills to.
