10: Hunter June needs Liquified Gas
Condition:
- Completed Thief Taikbin task

Note:
- You won't be able to enter Lucifer Castle free until you finished the "Lucifer Castle Admission" quest. You can still go inside through the guard in Byron Crow Forest but for a price of 1 Elemental Jewel. It is recommended that you remove the seal of Lucifer Castle first before proceeding with the quest because you will be speaking with Hunter June several times and it will be costly if you will use the entrance from the guard.

Crow Forest Managing Guard


- Lucifer Castle Basement Laboratory is full of very strong monsters, these monster will not hit you unless you get too close to them, the only problem you will have are the Culvert Frogfishes and sometimes the mini boss Mutated Frogfish that appears in the entrance of the basement (see green box in the map), there is no way to avoid them from noticing you, they can also see through invisibility, one technique you can use is using Protection Field, and move speed buffs to outran these monsters until you reach the middle area. After passing through the frogfishes you will encounter a maze of rotating blades in the middle (see blue box). Do not go though the maze because a boss King Betelguese is waiting in the center of that area. You can walk around the blades, just near the cages on the sides, until you reach Hunter June (see red circle). Be very careful because there are some monsters that are lurking around, but those that are immobile you can easily pass them, just don't try to get close.

Hi there! Frogfish




Reward:
- None
Content:
- Once you have access to Lucifer Castle Basement Laboratory, go to NPC Hunter June and talk to him using any MA Character (except Jean-Pierre). He will then tell you his tragic life story and eventually ask you to give him Liquified Gas x 1. If you have it in inventory that's good, if not you have to warp out again and enter the castle passing through the strong monsters once more.

I think I've seen you before?

11. Bait Box at Crow Forest (Repeatable)
Condition:
- Completed Hunter June needs Liquified Gas
Reward:
- Veteran G EXP Card x 3
Content:
- After giving the Liquified Gas to Hunter June, he will ask you to go to Crow Forest to check his Bait Boxes.

Locations of Bait Boxes

A Bait Box

- After clicking on all the boxes, return to Hunter June, he will then reward you 3 x Veteran G EXP Cards. You can repeatedly check the boxes once everyday and go to Hunter June to get the same rewards.

Update: When v9.5 got implemented in sGE, a new quest shows when you talk to Hunter June, which requires bringing an MA character again to talk to him. No battles required, just watch the story. Afterwards, Hunter June will give you Expert G Cards x 3. Just a bit of spoiler, the story seems to be linked to Gracielo. During Gracielo recruitment quest wherein he accidentally killed Camille's brother, he wasn't killed at all. Fritz was able to save him, and his whereabouts are currently unknown. What's interesting is, when Gracielo approached Fritz to take his tests for repenting for his sins, Fritz knew that Gracielo is innocent yet he didn't bare the truth to the poor lad. Anyway, it also seems that Hunter June has more mysteries to reveal about his real identity. We will see in the future once the questline continues. ^_^
