Seriously locked out of thing i was hunting? apparently it's gone into hiding and yet magically it's right there infront of me.

Cant put into words the disappointment of this content so far, it's basically an island for hunter, and as for the big game hunting, can't say I'm enjoying it at all, having to make poisoned spears and gather materials while also having to avoid the stupid thing is annoying as hell.

Because obviously if we know anything about hunting it's that people also go unprepared and never plan ahead.

Not to mentioned trying to out run the circle if you fuck up your surge game over, so much fun!

And no I've haven't had a successful kill in big game hunter yet.

Okay had multiple kills now, very tedious, most defiantly boring, very very very unique content that is aimed at who? royal society magazine

spent about 2 hour trying to do it, managing to hit it with three then have to try a second batch just for me to get caught. the circle is too big, does some sort of camo help? because its annoying as hell and i cant imagine the exp is even decent.

Not gonna bother with it anymore now.

The exp is bad for how long it takes to get.

Average kill i got

7-18 dragon hides(random).

2-3 bones

was getting 100 dragon scales, nw seem to only be getting 30-50.

2 damaged hides.

anyways I'm not playing more of it, can't justify wasting time on it.

I agree that the movement mechanics are wayyyyy too clunky for what they're trying to do here, and being locked out is a kick in the teeth when you're just trying to learn how to do it. Maybe there'll be some gear later that increases the time it takes to make you completely restart, but until then, this sort of sucks. Whether or not the rewards are good is a whole other thing, I'm just trying to get a completion really.

Cool island though

I cant even start the BGH due to lack of bait...
Wont go into detail about how SPREAD OUT everything is, and as far as collecting resources, don't make me laugh. Figured I'd poke around the WHOLE ISLAND...figuring I could manage to come across extra materials...NOPE.

Seen a few people poking around with various BGH beasties...and their frustration is massive.
The rewards versus the AMOUNT of effort required is insane, and yea...your community would rather stick to Jandiko's or skillchompa's as it turns a huge profit. t75 ranged power armor for the rewards in hunting, PAH! I'll stick to disassembling Kharils and other...unimportant...gears. Least then I aint gotta stagger to get a full set of t75 that really doesn't make sense to use when we have other more VIABLE gears to choose from. Beefing this up to t85 with a unique set bonus (Agility and oh say...MOVEMENT SPEED FROM BGH mobs) would be much more relevant to our situation) then perhaps I'd waste HOURS upon HOURS here.

Herby Werby is a joke too btw. A serious SLAP in the face. More XP per hour making OVL's and other high end pots than doing this event. Who wants to wait an entire month to unlock the little to none relevant rewards? Bet the herb bag only holds what...20 of each uncleaned herb? PAH! Upgraded holds what, 50? TSH!
A bone bag would be more sufficient realistically. Would make getting 120 Prayer easier, and various slayer tasks much more worth while to go do repeatedly.

Hate to say it jagex, but day zero and already considered useless content.
Incomplete AF, and tbh...WORSE THAN MENAPHOS!

But that's just my opinion...of 12.5 years as an on and off runescape player.

Unfortunately agreed. =(

I understand that the content is geared for lower level - like they said, to fill in a gap, and that they tried to do something different for hunter. But the Big Game Hunting is way too difficult, for way too little award. And the mechanics are the same for each of the dinosaurs?

We can't prepare, we can't outrun the dinos, if we fail, ALL the work hiding and building gets thrown out the window. And if we finally succeed in building it all - guess what? Round two.

Not fun. At all.
