Hunts are a battle mode that enhances play for new Hero Classes and allows valuable chests to be targeted.
Hunt battles are available when your first hero reaches Level 7. Accessible via the World tab, Hunt battles are aimed toward your secondary Heroes giving you the ability to earn XP without having to play through the Story again.
Note: At least one Hero will have had to progress through the main story in sequence to unlock more Hunts.
For example, the top screenshot is from the Hunt menu when the Primary Hero is being played. You can see that they will not receive any bonus XP. Compared to the one below of a secondary Hero which will receive bonus XP.
There are three options available from the Hunt board, a 3 Battle Hunt, 4 battle or 5 battle Hunt. Each part will reward a bonus Chest on completion, with the final battle being a Dungeon.
All parts of a Hunt battle need to be completed to receive the bonus chest or you need to abandon your Hunt battle before you can start a new one.
In the example below, once the final 4th battle was completed it would reward a Ruby chest on top of the 4 chests awarded from each battle.
You can also increase the difficulty of these Hunt battles from Easy, Medium and Hard. Once a Hero has reached level 50, you will then be able to play beyond Hard on Difficulty 1 onwards.
