New Wildlife Buff Reference Image for 2.3.8


#1

A friend and I compiled this through a combination of patch notes, lots of testing, macman posts, and some dumb luck. I believe everything here is accurate.

EDIT AGAIN AGAIN: Image updated for hopefully the last time! :smiley:


Buff information needs to be more clear
#2

Very nice dude.


#3

I don’t think the steamadon perk effects jetpack thrust. I think it slows walking movement. The megamouth buff has a grammatical error, says: “35% faster ability cooldown reduction”, whereas it should be “35% class ability cooldown reduction”.


#4

It definitely does affect jetpack thrust. I’ve tested this first hand. Thanks for the heads up on the correction!


#5

What exactly do you mean? I don’t think jetpack dodges are reduced by 90% in distance while being attacked.


#6

I mean that if you hold down space bar you’ll go essentially nowhere when affected by the monster’s slow. Your jetpack’s power is reduced to almost nothing.


#7

But jetpack dodges aren’t effected? What about normal movement?


#8

The fact that it slows movement speed could definitely be stated more clearly re-reading my description. I’ll try to find out an exact amount. Jetpack dodges are not affected IIRC, but I actually did not write that down, and my memory is currently failing me in regards to that.


#9

The mammoth bird buff also provides hunters with a 50% weapon swap speed increase, which isn’t mentioned in the chart.


#10

Nice catch, will add that in the next version!


#11

Only 50%? I thought it matched the hunter perk at 100%. I think the phrasing was a 50% reduction to weapon swap times which would be equal with an 100% increase to weapon swap speed.


#12

You may be right. I don’t recall the exact wording, I was mainly pointing out that the information wasn’t present.


#13

I believe the perk is actually 35% reduced reloads (keep in mind the difference between reducing the reload and increasing the reload rate) and 100% faster weapon swaps for the hunters.


#14

Oh, you are correct. After the buff adjustments the reload speed was decreased. I didn’t notice that about the chart either.


#15

My reload tests indicate that it’s 50%, but you very well may be right about the swapping, that wasn’t something I’ve tested at all.


#16

Tests indicate this? Is the number provided when you pick up the buff incorrect then?


#17

I’m guessing it is. I’ve actually stopped paying attention to those, since they aren’t very accurate. Take the reaver buff and the nomad buffs for example.


#18

Are you sure? I believe patch 2.0.6 was supposed to nerf the reload to 35% reduction. Also in the link you posted it as an increase to the reload speed, which I believe is inaccurate.


#19

I said it was 50% faster reloads. Am I missing something?


#20

I believe the perk is a 35% reduction to reloads rather than a 50% increase to reload speed. Mathematically, a 35% reduction would be obtained by (1-.35) whereas a 50% increase to the speed would be 1/1.5.

Also I edited out the mistake you might be referring to in my post.
