Whale Hunting needs a fix.

15 posts in this topic

Posted

As you can see on the video it takes ridiculously long time to even get a single shot at the beast (thats why i show durability before and after, if you hit - durability on the gun goes down by one, if you miss - it does not). Ultimately we have ended with having 3 full parties there shooting the whale for 2hours 15 minutes. @CM_Aethon this needs addressing. I dont know which patch did it but way back when i did Whale Hunting all we needed was a single party and it took about 30 minutes to put it down, now its a pure bloody mess.

Its still desynching like ape shit. On this video everyone in my TS party has seen whale in a different place. You still have levitating boats, teleporting whales, glitching in textures etc. but new thing is: now you cant even hit him properly, 2-3 shots in 50 actually score a hit.

Whale hunting is aids atm but 2 hours and 15 mins for 3 party's means you are still doing something wrong. xD

Pearl Abyss doesn't care about anything that doesn't affect the Cash Shop. This problem has existed since day 1 of the Hunting Skill. 

Just look at the Fishing Bot that has Existed / been abused since Day 1 of Release, It's Advertised Daily in Global Chat, The Owners of the Bot profit with Real World Money & Still they do nothing......Why?......Because it doesn't Affect their Cash Shop Sales.

I feel tho that whale hunting promotes buying a costume which increases swim speed, so they should make it more lucrative going whales if they wanna get some more money.

imo, the players on the video are hunting all wrong.

And yet, this feature has been broken since release with no changes in sight. Unless they add additional cash shop items they wont address this issue.

Hunting in general should never been about dailies and boss kills. It, like fishing should have been centered around a trophy system.

Why are you using fishing boats?

It reminds me of trying to shoot the crows just outside glish for one of the daily hunting missions.

The mechanics for hunting are just horrible from the slowness of walking and reloading, to being able to actually hit anything, they need to add a first person mode specifically for hunting and also fix it so you can actually hit what you're shooting at

As mentioned by Montego, you're hunting the whale wrong. The boat/angle from where you shoot from must be directly behind the whale to effectively target the whale's hitboxes; you should essentially should be ramming the tail of the whale with the boat. You only need a single boat with all parties shooting from the front of the boat.

The problem with Birds is... you don't actually shoot their bodies, you shoot this tiny little Hitbox located underneath their bodies and for some reason the FPS also just goes to HELL on some hardware setups while trying to do it.   ...I think it might be because of the constant stream of particles + the smoke cloud that comes out of the musket right before the shot actually hits them

But yes it interconnects directly with the main problem when it comes to hunting which is pretty ALL of the hitbox mechanics are garbage and desperately need fixing to be more uniform with a longer Range tolerance.  Khalk is basically the only mob in the game with a proper representative hitbox

All that vid does is showcase a bad driver. You're supposed to follow the whale behind it or off to the side a little bit.

Can't remember the last time I saw the dead whale notification with a full list of party winners.
