Meldacio Hunter HQ is an outpost in the Cleigne region in Final Fantasy XV. It is inhabited by hunters, and has a caravan, restaurant, item and weapon shops, and a rent-a-bird. It is located under a natural stone arch. It is on the road that leads to Vesperpool.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

When Noctis Lucis Caelum and his retinue go to the Meldacio Hunter HQ, they help a hunter out by felling a Melusine. Noctis meets with Ezma Auburnbrie, the leader of the Hunters, and receives a key to deepest parts of the dungeons that the party have already explored.

When darkness overruns Eos Meldacio Hunter HQ is fortified. When EXINERIS Industries sends power to the Hunter HQ, they begin taking in refugees, including Biggs and Wedge, who help bolster up security with imperial soldiers. It is unknown if Meldacio Hunter HQ survives the full ten years that Noctis is in the Crystal.

There is a dartboard on the wall of a building on the western side of the outpost where the player can play a little minigame. Hitting bullseye is the best result, and awards 6 AP on the first landing. The minigame yields no further prizes if played again.

Professor's ProtegeEdit

The player can meet Sania Yeager at the west side of the outpost who asks for Noctis and friends to collect fireflies from Myrlwood. They are easily spotted on the ground when it is dark.
