Final Fantasy 16 Notorious Marks advertised in the Hunting Boards aren’t usually easy to spot. They don’t get a map marker, forcing players to rely on an enemy description and vague location indicator. Still, to track down the Man in Black, aka Holy Trumpitour, players must complete a side quest for it to spawn. This guide helps you track down and hunt the Holy Trumpitor in Final Fantasy 16.
