All the way out in these ruins and I found company, eh?

–Tech Hunter greeting

Tech Hunter Ruins are randomly named members of the Tech Hunters faction. They can be found patrolling Forbidden Isle, Leviathan Coast, and Shun in groups of 1-5 characters.

They have a 4% chance to spawn with a bounty ranging from 1 to 4000 Cats. They wear [Standard] armour (8% chance of [High]) and have weapons manufactured by Ancient.

If this character is found alone, there is a chance the player can recruit them as a bodyguard for a day.
