Hunting Challenge 5 - Ghuls

For this challenge you'll need kill eight ghuls, that you can find in many missions but can find going to their caves, in the night. Ghuls are weaker so probably you'll don't have problem to kill these bastards.

Hunting Challenge 6 - Bats

External image

For this challenge you'll need kill three bats, that are a little "tricky" to appear, but you probably will find by entering or leaving a cave, at night. Kill three of them with your bow and you complete this challenge.

Hunting Challenge 7 - Graug

For this challenge you'll need kill a Graug, that can be found in both maps, sometimes after fast travel to an Forge Tower, sometimes just exploring the map, and sometimes he didn't appear. You can kill him in mission 15 (Hunting Partners) too. If you have the Shadow Mount ability you can kill him easily just pressing cn_LT + cn_A to mount on him, and pressing cn_RT + cn_B to kill.

You can kill him in the same way of Caragors or Graugs, explained above.
