It is highly recommended that players avoid encountering Bugmaster until they have a group of high level stats and mid to endgame gear. Alternatively, players with high Stealth and Assassination skills player can attempt to sneak into his tower to knock him out, although the knockout will likely have a low chance of success due to his high toughness.
They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Cross.

Claiming Bounty[edit | edit source]
If the Bugmaster is defeated by the Player and/or their party, they can bring the 100,000 bounty to the HQ of the Shek Kingdom, in Admag. Carrying the Bugmaster in proximity of Shek Warriors or civilians will prompt them to tell you to bring Him to the Stone Golem, the faction leader. The Stone Golem is located in Admag.
Turning him in will also give you +100 Reputation with the Shek Kingdom. You will gain +75 Rep by turning him in to the Stone Golem's aid, and +25 for talking to her directly after (if the player wants to acquire Seto in their party then talking to the Stone Golem should be slightly delayed to allow Seto to join the party).
An alliance with the United Cities prior to turning in the Bugmaster to Bayan the Stone Golem's aid will remove the Reputation gain entirely with the Shek Kingdom and you will not talk with Esata the Stone Golem at all. This removes the possibility of a unique recruit, her daughter Seto.
WARNING: By turning in the Bugmaster to the Shek Kingdom, you set yourself hostile with The Holy Nation.
The Bugmaster can also be turned in to the United Cities, however there is no extra benefits besides the reward money and a very small reputation boost.
Defeating the Bugmaster prompts Berserkers to attack the player's outpost, in a 'Challenger of the Undefeated' event consisting of at least 2 squads of Berserkers.
