I personally feel that the birds spawn too frequently right now, especially for a poor stage 1 monster. I had about 5 games in a row yesterday where I was killed before reaching stage 2 because of birds almost every time. So here is my suggestion:
- Less chance of carrion birds when monster is at stage 1. S1 monsters have next to no chance vs the Hunters. An armored up S2 monster can at least fight back.
- Keep current carrion bird spawn rate the same for S2 monsters. The bigger the monster the more chance birds will notice, makes sense to me.
- Higher chance for a S3 monster to spawn birds then it currently is now. Some people might say what difference does it make when a monster is S3, I’ve played many games where we chased a S3 monster down because he didn’t have any armor since we caught him during the evolve.
S1 monsters need help, the birds are the cause of most of a S1 monster’s woes.
