Before I go on a villain hunt...

What tips can the more experienced players offer? I've looked through the threads and these are what I have seen:

* Set aside lots of money.
* Obtain contacts for each city.
* Get good equipment which you can travel around in.

Did I miss out any? Like, do I have to make space in my inventory for the rewards? Or can I "teleport" it into my agency?

By the way, is Cairo included in the Arch Villain Hunts? I haven't unlocked Cairo yet. Do I have the option of turning off the option of having Cairo in the AVH?

Thank you so much!

Oh yeah, another question...

In the middle of an arch villain hunt, are we allowed to do lower difficulty cases or favors? (I was thinking about that in case I run out of money...)

No, when you ar edoing a Villian Hunt, all cases are automatically set to almost impossible. That is why it is so importantt to follow the above advice

You asked about making space in your inventory for the rewards. Assuming you successfully complete your hunt, it's a good idea to strip off before going back to Shangri-La to choose a reward. Leave at least hat, coat and one accessory slot free. That way you won't have to sell anything you don't want to.

Good luck! :)

Also, you don't get favors while doing a hunt :)
Good luck!

Money isn't a huge deal, one day of favors (3 at $4800 each) should bankroll a VH, then of course you replace that + when you retrieve your reward for catching the villian!

Just out of curiosity, has anyone travelled around doing AVH with a one-room apartment so they can change to a full set of smarts and still have a full set of interview clothes?
I know people talked about the idea when the AVH first came out but I don't think anyone did it 'cause of the costs...

Yes, Eudaemon from Hunter's did it on a regular basis. He said it worked very well. One room is not that expensive to move. I wouldn't recommend it for a four room though, lol.

hehehe
Actually it seems like smart clothes do not give anything at all concerning the evidences you reseve. I have conducted multiple experiments and it seems like no matter if i visit the crime scene with +20 smart or -10 smart equipments...i get exactly the same quality of evidences...so save your money and do not move the apartment (hehe also never choose a smart item from the prince as they are totally useless items)
On the other hand it seems that smart items do play a role in following a suspect

I believe that besides all the information the others have offered.
Be prepared to test your patience, as you will quit a lot of cases, you have to stay patient so that you are sure about what you are doing.
If you don't try to capture by chance, but know who to nab, you WILL get your Villain in the end.
Good luck! :-)
