One of the main advantages of Patrol missions is the chance to receive more Orbs from the Daily Patrol Boosts. This is important if you're looking to upgrade your gear using a specific elemental orb.
More Bonus Rewards On Quest Completion

Random Behemoth Can Have High Threat Levels
Patrols are random hunts and you'll only find out which Behemoth you'll fight when you're in the hunt lobby. This can mean that you'll face a Behemoth with a high threat level, making it a harder hunt to complete.

Pursuit missions will always allow you to choose the Behemoth you will hunt. This is perfect for Slayers who are building a certain weapon or armor set.
