Bear with me, I can be long winded (I don’t mean to be)…
I’m trying to get better as the Monster. To this end, I’ve been going over the different aspects of my game; seeing where I need to improve, and what I can do differently to become better.
Thus, as my Topic heading asks, I’m wondering if I should be engaging the Hunters at Stage 1?
I know this is highly subjective and depends largely on which Monster I’m playing, who the Hunters are, their skill level, the map, etc. But GENERALLY speaking, is it advised to try and engage the Hunters at Stage 1 in an attempt to get strikes?
My current strategy is to dash as far away as possible, go stealth, feed until I’m able to Evolve, go Stage 2, gain some armor, and by then I feel confident enough to tackle most Hunter teams.
Before evolving to Stage 2, should I be going at the Hunters while I have full armor/health?
There are 2 conditions in which I wont engage Hunters at Stage 1 no matter what. Those are:
- They have an Abe. If they have an Abe and I pick a fight at Stage 1, there’s little chance I’ll be able to find a safe place to evolve.
- If I’ve taken any health damage at Stage 1, be it from the Hunters or wildlife, then I try to evolve asap.
Is this flawed reasoning?
I appreciate any help and advice you can give. Thank you for taking the time to read and offer any suggestions.
