How do you feel about Kraken’s traversal leaving footprints?
Goliath and Wraith traversals on flat ground don’t cover much distance. In the right terrain, though, you can cover quite a lot of ground with either monster and leave no trace.
Behemoth leaves a trail, but his speed in traversal makes it so you still have plenty of time to armor up a bit before the hunters can get to you.
Kraken’s traversal is slow, doesn’t cover that much territory, and leaves a trail for the hunters.
I feel like Kraken is the only monster that a hunter can just follow on foot as the monster tries to feed up, and land de-buffs.
How could this be fixed? What about Kraken gaining speed as he falls out of the air? When first launching into the air it’s kinda slow, then as it progresses forward the speed could ramp up, so it’s fastest right before it lands again. This could make “run away” traversals more effective by taking a series of sprints away from hunters, while in-combat flight would stay slow as it kept maximum height for best angle to land abilities.
This would also mean that Abe, and Crow’s slows, and Val’s dar still pull kraken out of the air and waste stamina, but could also let Kraken get a little distance from the hunters, and maybe enough time to sit down for an armor bar lunch.
