Spearfish Hunting Guild Vessel – Pupuring Epic Version

To obtain the epic version of Pupuring you must find the wandering merchant ships outside of each city’s port – specifically the Spearfish Hunting Guild traveling merchant ship. These merchant ships travel around the map every 30 minutes, so you can either wait around at the port for them to cycle through or just periodically check as you have downtime in between other tasks – and hope you get lucky.
