The Rest of Hunter?

Recommended Posts

By now, we all realize the scarcity of rewards from the new Hunter skill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The furs have limited uses, the different colors of feathers could have more impact on fletching or fishing, and 71 is a low cap for a skill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It just seems a lot more could have come from this new skill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, Jagex did whip this skill out compared to construction (3 years vs. 7 months), so I never expected the skill to be that big. The point is, will Jagex expand the skill, and if so, when? How?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course, the natural response is "Over time, you impatient noob.", but an idea popped into my head while I was toying with my falcon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could next week's quest see the release of the second half of Hunter? (Or at the very least, a major addition)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new quest will be centered around Eagle's Peak, where we will have to track down some rare ferret (Taken from the Behind the Scenes). Matthias (Or whatever his name is) lives close by, and I have a hunch that birds will play a big part in the new quest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I personally enjoy hunting with the falcon, and would be thrilled if we could own a hunting bird as a "Pet" to help fight off certain creatures. Maybe this new quest would see new bird hunting (And training) on eagle peak, along with some other addition to the skill (I hope).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's just my wishful thinking. Is there anybody who thinks I'm just crazy? Post! :D

Who knows? But it sure sounds good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't think Jagex rushed the skill. The three months spacing between hunter and construction says nothing about the actual development time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It seems logical that Jagex first let the players get a taste of the new skill and then start to present the very tasty rewards.

If they put such great rewards in to start with, the areas would be even more packed than they are now (meaning alot of angry players). Maybe that has something to do with it. Give it a few weeks ...

i sincerely hope that a little more use of other skills will be more important for future hunter-improvements

If you try to use raw meat with a box trap, it will say something along the lines of "You can't do this until Eagle's Peak quest is released."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm sure there's more, though :-k

I can already see hunting opening new doors to future quests for the ongoing series of Dwarves, Vampires, Elves, Gnomes, Slugs, Ogres, Humans and Trolls.

 

 

 

Don't know if they'll expand it, but I really hope something new for it! The highest 'needed' lvl is 71 and isn't hard to get at all, seeing how many got it already.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waiting for the new quest and the next behind the scenes article.

Hopefully that Ice Land becomes a part of Hunting that they said they'd release, 2 years ago. It said it would have things like Mammoths. :ohnoes:

I just really hope they make more options, and get rid of the competitiveness over space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salamanders are the most popular means right now, and with only one player per trap, it's really nasty. At least with slayer we don't have all the players going after the same monster at once, rather we were spread all over killing everything

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If it was more like fishing with multiple people using the same traps (at least on deadfall and nets), it'd be far more fun for everybody, without the nastiness people are displaying

Proud to have gotten 1800 skill total before access to fishing guild

It seems absurd to not assume that they would expand such a "large" skill.

Salamandars are the most popular? I find Chinchompas faster... :shock:

When a skill has a low cap it leaves a lot of space to add in more things. Get the picture? Look at smithing.

Ya, I noticed that setting box traps has a much lower level requirement than the chinchompas. I hadn't noticed you couldn't use meat to bait them yet, but I assumed the new quest would add more tox trap creatures.

Seems quite possible we could falcons as pets. Maybe even from those eggs we been saving in our banks:

 

 

 

Dear Posty Pete,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been completing slayer assignments and have currently got to level 27 slayer, I got ym new assignment to kill 27 skeletons, only problem is i got bored so i decided to do some wood chopping and fire lighting instead. I went to draynor by the lake and started to chop willow trees, even though my wood chopping level is 59, i just thought it would be an easy way to get my wood chopping level to 60 so i could cut yew trees. Any let's get to why i'm really sending this letter to you. When i was chopping willow trees, a birds nest dropped out, now i have had this happening to me alot but have never got what i got inside it this time. I searched the birds nest and got a strange looking bird's egg from it. Now uasally i would get something like a apple tree seed, a willow tree seed or some kind of jewlery, but no i got a blue coloured bird's egg. When i examined it, it said: A blue bird's egg. So then I asked people around me what they thought, they said that they had never heard or seen it before. So then i tryed to cook it but it then said, you can not cook this on a range or fire. I've tryed doing everything with it, but no one knows any one who has ever had this before, so please Posty Pete and all your freinds and runescapians, can you tell me what this blue bird's egg is for, what it really is and what it does or will do?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for reading this, yours sincerly Badham94 one of the many member runescapians.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I asked about for ages on this specific issue, and the only person who knew anything was ol' Farmer Fred from Lumbridge. HereÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Å¾Ã¢s what he had to say (when he wasnÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Å¾Ã¢t talking about ÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ãâ¦Ã¢â¬ÅThe ThingÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬ÃâÃ

That'd be one big pitfall... :shock: :ohnoes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really do hope they expand the skill, as a cap of Level 71 is pretty disappointing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We can't hunt Squirrels, Raccoons, and foxes(did I miss any?) yet, hopefully be can in the future. ::'

When the skill was new there wasn't that much competition.

 

 

 

And after a few weeks you'll notice that the spots get a lot less crowded.

Anyone remember slayer?

 

 

 

I think they added whips right away, and there wasn't any greater reward afterwards... (even when they added a higher monster).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but then again who knows... 71 does seem a little low...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and if anyone has seen hunter x hunter then you know there can be a lot more to hunting :P

I think that maybe if we're lucky, the quest might let us have our own falcons and hunt the rabbits, racoons andsuch all over runescape? :pray:
