Penguins New Fastest Hunter?
Posted 03 June 2009 - 11:54 PM
Access to the new hunter area where you can catch Penguins and the occasional KGB Agent for extra exp.
You can catch these penguins with practically any method, and the exp does vary.
Boxing red chinchompas - 265 exp, chance of fail.
Boxing Penguins - 150 exp, 0.0001% chance of fail.
Netting penguins - 250 exp, 0.0001% chance of fail.
The speed however, is another important factor.
Red Chins - Fast respawn, luring fast.
Boxing pengs - Instant respawn, very fast luring.
Netting pengs - Instant respawn, medium luring.
So the discussion is, which one is better?
I personally think Boxing Penguins is the new fastest way to gain exp. Compared to the risk of failing a chinchompa. You catch em more often, and faster. Yes the exp is less, but I think the speed\chance makes up for it.
*Please note - KGB Agents are only worth 2exp each at this point in time, im unknown as to whether or not this is a bug, but yea*

No problem. I'm with you on hating to fix box traps. Penguins are very helpful though. So congratulations on the 80 Hunting. Not sure when you got it though.

So as you said before, It does come down to what you want. If your hunting for exp and a bit of cash, do reds. If ur a hardcore skiller, go the pengs.

And even still, chins are very fast :P Guess this new method is just "something different" :P

when your hunt lvl is high, you fail a whole less (my brother has 99)
and tbh 99 hunt doesnt take long at all, it's only boring
and the money isnt that great (boredom vs the money you gain) there are other ways to earn more an hour
but though i'd like to make some of the 30M+ involved in chin hunting

Also note you need to release the Penguins. You do not need to Release Chins.

Personally, I dislike Hunter. However, after I completed the Quest, I went try out the Penguins and I grew a level really quick. So, I'm sure that whenever I do get around to leveling Hunter (and I will have to one day to keep my Quest Cape ), Penguins will be my choice.
