Unblogged Wisdom Checks: Are You a Hunt Farmer or Thief?

The Hunt system in Ravenloft will receive significant tweaks and other than the name won’t have too many similarities with its counterparts of Module 12 and 13. So it makes sense to retire the old Hunts with a poll touching on an aspect that we haven’t talked about a lot on the blog. In the Lost City of Omu there are basically two ways of how to approach trophy farming. You can either kill and “refresh” the mobs yourself until rare mobs spawn, or hop instances, quickly check all spawn locations and take down the rare mobs that are present. The latter is often referred to as “thieving” since you depend on other players to refresh the mobs for you.

Both approaches have distinct pros and cons. Farming yourself let’s you time your route and normally be more efficient, but on the relatively small Omu map it can happen that others get to “your” rare mobs before you. Either because they randomly pass by or are thieving. Thieves in the meantime aren’t guaranteed to encounter any rare mobs at all, and often miss out on the more coveted trophies. Which leads us to this week’s poll: Are you a farmer or a thief? What method of getting your trophies do you prefer?

    If you let other people in to ‘thief’ your rare mobs your not watching the timing close enough to actually be farming them. In a farming analogy you are essentially driving across country throwing seeds out your window with a hope to eventually return and grab some fruit on the way back. If I happen into an instance for questing purposes and find a hunt mark, darn right im taking it out. Thats almost certainly the simplistic mindset that the designers had in mind anyway. …if I’m trying to farm trophy’s however its up to me to make sure Im there on time, not the non-existant good graces of random other players.
