What does this information mean?


  • You can only complete the mission once per day. If you have already completed the mission and need to wait until the next day, the Steward will reply with "I'll have more tasks for you tomorrow, <your name>."
  • You can delete the quest, then re-hail the Steward to receive a new random quest. For BoL content, cats, insects, and reptiles are ideal.
  • "Grey" creatures can give updates, too. To be in fight you can e.g. fear or root the mob (without damage...so have an eye on your trigger effects). For more possibilities see the Hint section below!

Therefore the mean amount of XP you gain out of one quest is 469.

Familiar XP table[]

The grind time estimation assumes that you complete this quest once per day. Since the reset time is 18 hours, you can do it 4 times per 3 days(you can factor the estimation by 1.33 in this case). The exp table is the same for any season. The amount of potency is relevant for Season 8 familiars for level 120 characters.

The quest will ask you to capture 11 3 (as of 9/14/2021) monsters/creatures/etc., from one of the following categories below, in an empty familiar cage that you will receive from the Steward. Below are some suggestions for monsters that should update the quest (this is not a complete list).

Hints and Tips[]

If you are Max Level, (110 currently) You can mentor to 10-20 and still have over a million HP. even lvl 80's wont be able to hurt you. just walk up and let them aggro and snag them.

Most of the familiars (fabled and ethereal) have some damage proc, so it's better to unsummon your familiar (if you have any) and remove all damage proc items from your gear before you start caging creatures. Fighter classes that have Planar Mastery: Fighter should unequip it to take the damage effect off of most taunts and detaunts.

An alternative is to engage them from range - most procs are limited range, so if the mob is too far away, they won't be hit. Most of the spells mentioned have a decent range, and the cage spell may cast well before it loses its red shading.

If you unsummon your familiar, don't forget to re-summon before Examining the new one, or you won't get the option to give XP to your current familiar.
