Blackguard Big Boggart can be found first at the Boilprawn Shack in Liurnia. To start his questline you want to begin the first section of Rya’s quest. Rya asks you to retrieve her stolen necklace. The necklace has been stolen by Blackguard Big Boggart. Go to the Boilprawn Shack and speak to Blackguard Big Boggart to buy the necklace for 1,000 runes.

After you’ve bought the necklace from Blackguard Big Boggart you can speak to him again. Purchase a Boiled Prawn consumable from him to gain his trust. He will comment on the purchase. This unlocks the next section of his questline.

Note: You can kill Blackguard Big Boggart to get the necklace and his drops from him. Doing this locks you out of his questline.
