Item Reward pool
Noticeboard level-ups to 7 and beyond will grant players some rare items and a sizable amount of other supplies picked from the tables below. The amount of fused material needed to complete the noticeboard level affects the quantity of items received from the “Common” table.
|Optical Laser Tape (Always)
|Non-common Stickers (Always)
The distribution of common rewards is wildly varied. Sometimes there is a wide spread of items, while other times there is an absurd amount of a single item, such as 130+ Tapes
A random list of brief quests are posted on the noticeboard three at a time, each usually awarding a Fused Material, Experience and common resources. Checking the board again after finishing all quests will clear them and create a new list of quests.
These quests introduce and develop some additional characters through a series of brief encounters. They are obtainable a limited number of times, appearing on the board often and early in the post-game.
|Recruit Training: Frankie
|A questline involving Frankie, a recent arrival on New Wirral yearning to join the rangers. You give her a monster tape to start with and team up in battles of rising difficulty. On the fifth quest, Frankie will challenge the player for their captain’s Stamp with a full team.
|Defeat the final boss
|A questline involving Vin, a young man who robs Ranger supplies and hides out somewhere, battling the player 1-on-1 without partners when approached. On the fourth quest, Vin is found felled by a Rogue Fusion which the player must defeat to save him.
|Recruit Training: Vin
|Having renounced his thieving ways, Vin seeks to redeem himself through joining the Rangers, battling the player 1v1 for their Stamp with a stronger team.
|4th "Supply Thief" quest
General quests assign a wide variety of tasks to the player, whether it be routine work for the rangers or involvement with familiar NPCs. These are infinitely repeatable so long as any requirements are met.
|Player must defeat a certain monster species enough times in the wild. (Though the quest description highlights one area, battles in any of the monster’s habitats will count)
|Player must defeat a certain number of Rogue Fusions to clear the quest. Swarms and special fusion types will also count.
|A new Unstable Fusion appears in the world for the player to defeat. Unlike others on the radar, this fusion does not change position over time.
|Reach Board Level 3
|Lost and Found
|Player must retrieve a unique item dropped at a location by the client, then return it to the client at a second location.
|Player must deliver the requested items to the NPC at a location. Items are often Cures, Coffee or other common resources.
|Player is given a “Parcel” item and must simply deliver it to a Ranger scout NPC at a specified location.
|Player is given an “Aid Package” item and must simply deliver it to an NPC by the entrance of Mourningtown.
|Players must unlock the 5-star Bestiary entry for a certain monster species, then report to Hoylake at the Town Hall.
|Hoylake's Request (2)
|Players must record a fusion in their Bestiary using two specified tapes, then report back to Hoylake at the Town Hall.
|Players must have a specific monster tape in their party to battle Dr. Kirby and his partner at a location, whose team is based on the required tape. Kirby can fuse and his team may sometimes include Bootleg tapes.
|The player is challenged for their stamp by a Trainee and their partner at a location with a randomized team of 4-6 tapes. They are able to fuse and can utilize any species marked “seen” in the Bestiary.
|Frankie and Vin's ‘’Sidestories’’
|Frankie and Vin partner up for a casual battle against the player at a location. They are able to fuse and their team expands each time this quest is cleared, up to a point.

Fused Material bonuses
Upon clearing the Noticeboard of ranger quests, a brief text appears before new quests are loaded, stating a character “found bonus Fused Material!” The amount is random but the maximum yield is determined by the mentioned character.
- Ianthe: always only 1
- Kayleigh: 2-4
- Any of the Ranger Captains: initially 1-2, but the maximum yield can go up to 6 based on the number of times they have been defeated
- Frankie or Vin (After finishing their sidestories): initially 1-2, but the maximum yield can go up to 12 based on the number of times they have been defeated
- Dr. Kirby (After completing Hoylake's Assistant at least once): initially 1-2, but the maximum yield can go up to 12 based on the number of times they have been defeated
- Material bonuses and new quests are randomized ‘on-the-spot’ when given. If the player wishes, they may save before clearing the board and exit/reload their file to get a different result.
- Recruit Training quests are great for farming Upgrapes, awarding upwards of ‘’’10’’’ per battle at high enough levels.
