Below text and images copied from official patch notes.


Behr, the village of hunters, is filled with rumors of new and rare hunting monsters. These monsters include a hawk that gives off a unique light and a dangerous black leopard that prowls about hidden in the darkness of the night.

* According to the hunter rumor mill in Behr, there have been new sightings in Balenos and Kamasylvia. They say you can find the hawk with its fading light as the highest point in Balenos, and that you’ll need to pay close attention for movement it loses its light entirely. As for the black leopard that prowls while hidden by the dark nights of Kamasylvia, it is said to be drawn out by the moonlight, near where the cries of the old trees can be heard.
