I have searched the forums and the only hint i’ve gotten is that you fight someone near arborun
Here is a great guide for recipes http://www.hunterislandforum.com/index.php/topic/1062-recipes-and-locations/
If you’ve seen that then I can only recommend going to every town up to Arborun and making sure you did all the sidequests. You definitely should be able to find it by then
Thanks ill do that right now
Couldnt find it
Hmm I just recently started a new save file and I got it already. I guess now try wandering around outside of Arborun (tap every spot in the forest if you need to!) and seeing if you get into a random encounter with the NPC hunter who has it? Not really sure what the problem is here but I hope you find it!
To get the npc battle you had to trigger a chain of quests that started in maldan. I figured it out a few days ago put forgot about this post lol
Usually if people are missing Gremknight, Reijin, Barricadus, or another like that it means they missed Maldan :).
