I'm not sure if this was done on purpose but I just finished hunting Shiny Tortles on an uncharted Island and noticed the experience gained for hunting 207 of them worked out to just under half of what it used to be. Instead of 360k plus I now only get 181k and this was with my premier aura activated.
I can't see myself wasting my time hunting them anymore if this change is permanent.
Yeah, that's a very significant nerf. It is surprising that they are only now adjusting experience rates. They really should not have let things get to this point, and should have been changed years ago.
Completely agree with the sentiment here. I had 99 Hunter long before crystal chins so never really used them, but what I do know is that Arc was supposed to give some of the best Hunter xp in the game. It's not like there are a ton of benefits aside from the xp from hunting these ...
This makes no sense. A re-evaluation and adjustment is one thing, but half the xp is ridiculous.
Arizona Catsaid: Thanks for the link. I do remember reading that awhile ago but I also remember the line that standed out saying the following...
"The two primary training methods, Crystal Skillchompas and Ornate Tortles, will now give less XP per hour"
Would you ever imagine that less XP per hour would mean only half of what it was before?
All the people who got their 200m xp in hunting were able to do it twice as fast as we will now be able to do it.
100% unfair, I still stand correct JaGeX has lost all logic, time to fire some J Mods.....(No Offence to J Mods but it's true, who's idea was it on that figure of 50%? maybe a 50% decrease in your pay check would help you learn how damaging 50% is.....)
^not trying to flame J Mods in the above lines...I'm being 100% serious
