Ok. My strategy isn’t for the casual or the less experienced Goliath player, but when put with the experienced, it is perfect. You have been warned.
At stage 1, you put 2 points in Leap Smash and 1 point in Fire Breath. As you run away, just get your armor full and if you have enough time, eat more to fill your Evolve meter more. Then you attack them. Don’t run anymore. You stalk them and watch their movements. You see how they are positioned. Once you see an opportunity to strike, Leap Smash right on top of them and damage them. Don’t rely on your abilities as your only factor of retaliation. Also make sure if you think you’re going to miss with your ability, don’t use it. Just leap (traversal leap) and melee then use it when the opportunity is great. Melee is good for keeping the pressure on while waiting on your ability to recharge, just don’t stay on the same hunter for too long because you then become an easy target. Once you’ve done enough damage that makes you happy or if the situation calls for it, go after the next hunter (or as I call them victims). Then you start attacking them. Use your abilities with your melee in a way that they compliment each other. Make sure if there are things like Sunny’s shield drone or other hunter equipment that’s giving you the disadvantage, use an ability on it. It’ll get rid of it faster and give you more time to attack your actual targets than an annoyance. Once the dome goes down (assuming you didn’t take too much health damage or have a small amount of armor left with all the movements you made while fighting resulting in being a hard target), if you don’t have a full Evolve meter, just only eat enough to get it full because if you worry about your armor then it’ll buy the hunters more time to catch up to you. Just get that meter full, get distance, and evolve. If you’ve got a full evolve meter after the fight, just get distance between you and the hunters to evolve safely. While evolving, point up either the 2 abilities you got (fire and leap) or add one point to rock throw or charge depending on the environment. After evolving, get full armor and finish them off. Stage 3 is only a last resort in case your going against a strong (or in my case a tourny) team. If you are able to pull off this strategy correctly, you won’t have to worry about Crow or the hunters, because with this, they are the hunted. If you are getting armor and the Crow trapper spots you with Gobi, just run and eat until you have full armor. Then once you are armored up, attack without mercy. Good luck my fellow beast, may your horns strike fear into your enemies.
