So, let’s talk about how painful stage 1 is. Lol
I currently go with 3 aftershock stage 1 with damage resistance for the inevitable dome nowadays, but I’m thinking of switching resist to feeding speed.
I try ofc to eat as much as I possibly can before the ship arrives then depending on the trapper, follow up. But always I want to distance myself from the ship as much as possible.
Aftershock really helps with mammoth bird groups, 1 is good, 2 is great, 3 is a blessing. They can’t really run, no wildlife, if they are close. Not much else to say. I only choose this over vortex for farming because I have less than stellar aiming often, without a coffee. Plus aftershock is more guarenteed group kill. It does make a lot of noise though…
In battle I employ the same strat, group them up, and shock 'em. Pubs eat this stuff up, but I fought some sneaky non-pubs and I have to say, this strat was a complete failure. Well, I hit my targets, but not one of them were dying. Qq
If I get the chance to evolve I just go for max damage with 3 abilities. The ultimate goal stage 2 is to goad them into the shock using the other abilities, namely mines and LS. LS behind them punishes them for paying attention. They often run right toward me as I slowly inch the strike to me. I don’t intend to kill them with a level 1 skill, but to group them up for shock. If they strafe than it is easier to hit them with it normally, but If it misses ok, I know how they deal with it.
Again, I miss quite a few shots, so LS hasn’t really worked for me at 3.
Mines do the same thing but are also good for general dps and those rare occasions I’m losing too much health at that point or at the previous stage. Stick them upwards on walls, behind corners, and right on cliffs where I suspect a hunter will climb such as the medic.
Vortex at 1 doesn’t do much for me anymore besides dps. Is this move even good anymore?
At level 3 im just putting a point into the 3 abilities. Nothing new. But I rarely get here. It’s over stage 1 or 2. If I get here I usually win by dps.
That’s my small strategy, does anyone have any tips that I can improve with or possibly any questions?
