Possible locations to cash in your collected The Hunt is On! are Wolfstack Docks (WD), Watchmaker's Hill (WH), Spite (S), The Flit (F) and Veilgarden (V). About the requirement/challenge column, explained with the first line in the table: You need The Hunt is On! 5 to unlock this option and with that have a 30% chance to succeed in the The Hunt is On! 8 challenge. To certainly succeed (at 100%) you need to have The Hunt is On! 12.

Suggested THiO assumes 3 cp/action and that menaces can be cleared at 3 cp/action. Expected actions/success is likely a bit higher than these estimates, due to rounding.
