The Griffin Hatchling Minion is purchasable for 400 Centurio Seals from Ardolain (Foundation – The Forgotten Knight, X:13 Y:12).

Centurio Seals are certificates awarded for slaying any Hunt in Heavensward or Stormblood. There are several ways to get them, from A or S Rank Hunts, to Daily and Weekly Bills.

Clan Mark Bills are Daily and Weekly Hunts available in Ishgard (Foundation – Saint Valeroyant’s Forum, X:13 Y:12).

And there are four Levels of Bills:

  • Level 1 Clan Mark – rewards a total of 15 Centurio Seals
  • Level 2 Clan Mark – rewards a total of 20 Centurio Seals
  • Level 3 Clan Mark – rewards a total of 75 Centurio Seals
  • Elite Clan Mark – rewards a total of 100 Centurio Seals

Similarly, Veteran Clan Mark Bills are available in Othard (Kugane – Shiokaze Hostelry, X:11 Y:10).

These reward the same amount of Seals as the Hunts in Ishgard above.

In addition to Daily and Weekly Hunts, you’ll also be able to slay A or S Rank Hunts.

These fearsome beasts roam the Land and have a set respawn timer. You’ll find one or two in each Heavensward or Stormblood Zone.

A Rank Heavensward Hunts reward up to 40 Centuro Seals, 30 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics, and 10 B-tier Tomestones.

S Rank Heavensward Hunts reward up to 100 Centurio seals, 100 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics, and 30 B-tier Tomestones.

B-tier Tomestones are the secondary Tomestone of the current Patch, such as Aphorism.

Stormblood A and S Rank Hunts offer the same rewards, in addition to tokens you can trade for various Battle Materia.

Keep in mind that to do the Daily Hunt Bills, you’ll need to have finished up all prerequisite Quests. This includes the ones way back in ARR from your Grand Company regarding Allied Seals.

If the Hunt Boards aren’t showing up, take a trip back to your GC to see if any Blue Quests are available.
