Bounty Artifacts

Introduction

There are 153 Bounty Artifact sets available.
Completing each set will go towards a variety of cheevos, it is these cheevos that hold the rewards.
Handing in a complete set to a Bounty Hunter NPC will further your Achievements for Bounty Hunting. Each Achievement rank grants you a Title, some unique items (including Animal Calls, Mounted Trophies for your Dimensions, and a unique cloak), and access to a special vendor who will sell some interesting potions.

Remember to check the Auction House regularly for Bountys that you need and that Bountys also drop from minion missions, especially those 4 hour missions! All bounties drop from the minions, but Relics are very rare compared to the epics.

Bounty artifacts come in two types; PVP and open world monsters.

Hand in your Bounty sets at /setwaypoint 12976 11530 next to the normal artifact vendor.

Hunting PvP Bountys

PvP Bountys are of course found in PvP! You will find them in the loot chest ‘Reaper Supply Crate’ that you get when you win a PvP match. 
Bountys do occasionally drop from players during the PvP matches but this is super rare.
There are 47 sets to find, each with a Foot, Hand, Eye, Head and Heart.
The bountys that drop from the Reapers Supply Chest are completely random, there is no way to make certain classes drop, the classes/souls of the players within the PvP match have no bearing on the bounty drop. 
The Primalist Bountys are the most rare as these were added last.

Hunting Open World Bountys

There are 2 main ways to hunt open world bounty artifacts..

  1. Lots and Lots of killing! Whenever you kill a mob that gives you experience it will have a chance to drop a bounty artifact pertaining to that creature type. This means that you will occasionally loot a bounty artifact from pretty much any mob in the game at random. This is a super slow method taking hours/days/weeks of killing. Bountys that drop from normal mobs should be considered a happy bonus and not really a proper way to farm them.
  2. Hunting ‘Most Wanted’ bounty mobs. Much like rares, these mobs are not always up, but killing one guarantees you a bounty artifact drop. In this guide you will find maps and lists showing you where to find each of the mobs and what they drop. 

< Most Wanted > Information

There are lots of different Most Wanted mobs roaming the lands waiting to be killed.
Each Most Wanted mob is a different race/creature and will drop the bounty artifacts from that creatures set.
Most Wanted mobs are split up into groups depending on their level, each group will spawn in specific zones. Each zone will have a small number of spawn locations where any of the Most Wanted mobs eligible for that zone can spawn.
Most Wanted mobs are ‘passive’ when you meet them, they will not attack you unless you attack first! This can often make them easier to spot in a crowd of angry mobs. All of them will have the guild tag < Most Wanted > except the ones in PTW which are tagged with < Rival Bounty Hunter > . Most of the Most Wanted mobs can be easily soloed, though remember you do need to mentor down if you wish to loot the artifact from them! A couple of the mobs are very difficult to solo and you may want to summon a friend to come help you for these. Your friend can stay unmentored just make sure the mentored player hits the mob first.

Spawn Timers

Only one Most Wanted mob can be up at a time on each shard for each zone or zone group. Once a mob is killed, there is a respawn timer, which can be anything from 30mins to 2+ hours long. The respawn rate is not based on player population. The Mathosian Bounties respawn much faster than the Storm Legion Bounties.
You should not feel like hunting these mobs is going to be a 24/7 endeavour. It will be much more beneficial for you to do a full check of all the locations/zones you need and then wait for a day before coming back to check again. Even just checking a single zone/zone group will likely net you a few bountys to kill, you can then choose a different zone to check every couple of hours.
Straight after the weekly server downtime (weds/thurs morning) is not a good time to hunt bountys as they take a while to spawn in, it’s best to wait at least a few hours. Spawns are not effected by the daily reset.

Spawn Locations

Most Wanted mobs tend to spawn and stay still or walk in a small area about the size of a rift, except in PTW which has its own explanation. Different mobs may spawn in slightly different locations in a general area, so one mob may spawn at the top of the stairs and another near the bottom, or a mob may spawn inside a building while another just stands at the doorway and another wanders around outside. The target macro does work quite a distance (about 100 metres), so standing at the waypoint and clicking the macro should catch any that are up. The waypoints listed are the ‘centre’ of the various spawn points for the mobs, so the mob you find may not be exactly on the waypoint but will still be targetable.

It's Stuck in a Rock!

Occasionally, you may come across a Mob that is stuck in a rock or other scenery. Sometimes the mob will path back out of the rock within a few minutes, other times it will stay stuck til reset. You can try laying ground aoe near the rock to agro it, or sending a combat pet in to attack it, some tank taunt abilities will also work to draw the mob out.
You will find that the number of mobs stuck in rocks will increase as the week goes on, many of them will not be fixable until after the weekly downtime when they are all reset.
This is more common in the Storm Legion zones.

The Bounty is Running Away!

Sometimes you may approach a Bounty mob and see it start walking in a straight line away from the spawn location. When this happens you need to agro the mob and kill it ASAP, ensuring you are correctly mentored first! If you don’t kill it, the mob will keep walking in a straight line until it reaches the edge of the map, likely getting stuck in scenery and becoming unkillable along the way.
This si often the reason why you may find bounties at the edge of the map or stuck in random locations throughout the map, again, this is more common in the Storm Legion zones.

Quick Guide and Artifact Set Tracking

I have created a google sheets document which has all the maps and a checklist for completing the artifact sets. 
This is not a full guide (links to the full guides are below) I made it for myself to use to keep track of the sets I still needed, feel free to use it and to change it however you see fit. You should use the pages with the full guides first till you are familiar with all the locations and then use the spreadsheet to keep track of your progress as you start to finish sets.

Select ‘file’ in the top left and then ‘make a copy’, this will save a version onto your google cloud which you can then edit.

Full Maps and Waypoints

You can find full maps, waypoints and pictures of each mob and location in the full guides linked below, click the zone name to go to the guide for that zone.

Where to find your sets

The spawn timers of each group are independant, so, for instance, if you have finished all the sets that drop in the level 35b zones then you no longer need to hunt there and can concentrate on all the other zones.
You can find the sets you need on the table below and then you will know which zones you still need to hunt in.

Setting up your target macros

Having looked at bounty macros in other guides, I found a few small mistakes with them, such as mis-spelt names or dashes/apostrophise that don’t work. The macros below have been thoroughly tested and edited by myself, you may want to replace any older target macros that you have with these ones.

Set up your macros, one for each of the zone groups.
Remember to switch between them as you switch zones.

You may need to delete and retype the apostrophes [ ‘ ] while in the macro UI as they dont copy/paste very well.
