I have tried and tried and I still can't catch even one!
This is suppose to be fun! It's a game!
Well it's not fun and I don't understand why it can't be easier. :(


because the weapon it drops is more powerful than the t92 zaros godsword from telos, the hardest solo boss in the game

I haven't had too much of a problem actually catching the dinosaurs. I can usually get a kill in about 3 minutes once I figure out the correct poison. I recommend you all look up some guides to get a feel for how to go about this. Also, don't be afraid of the circles. you can almost always run/surge all the way through the circle if you're going in the opposite direction as the dino. Otherwise, let the dino circle around you, and do as little moving as possible. Gather all your materials and THEN start building, because if you fail you still retain all your materials for the next round.

I will say that the circles are a little bit too big, especially in some of the smaller arenas. Also the drop rate for totems, even though the wiki says 1/50 is completely bogus. I've been doing this for about 8 hours now with not one single totem piece out of the 3 that are ONLY OBTAINABLE through Big Game Hunter.

Also, the exp rate is complete trash. 300k for 4 hours spent? No thank you, I'll go to tortles. I understand that this is sort of supposed to be mid level hunter content, but even Carnivorous chins are better exp than this. Why anybody would do this to actually train hunter is beyond me.

T3 dinos require 94-95-96 hunt, id not say thats intended for mid level hunter.

i'm just trying to do it to complete the mini quest its too hard you hardly are able to escape they move to fast and always changing direction and the safe spots are very far away to the point sometimes you need to go the very edge to almost leaving the hunt either make them slower or reduce the radius when they hurt these creature. it frustrating ,no fun and waste of time :@

not going be surprised how quick it will become dead content if it continues like this

, Many of us were probably frustrated at first with BGH and I feel your frustration but keep at it, personally I think it beats the heck out of box trapping ( which for me is sleep inducing tedium ), this content is a refreshing change and I love it.

Also if you don't have bladed dive you need it for this it makes BGH so much easier, Double surge too, key binding them makes such a difference.

What worked for me was moving my ' W A S D' keys to the 'E S D and F ' keys then key binding bladed dive to the back slash key (for your pinkie finger) and surge to the 'B' key and escape to the 'N' key for your thumb. Hope this helps somewhat :) it helped me enormously and makes BGH fun, easier and adds fluidity to it too.

Happy 'scaping.
