    why does every mob in arkadia hit so many different dmg types and hit almost on every hit + regen..
    its just rape on armor.. i have mahketta+5bs.. on every mob i hunt in arkadia the armor decay is around 15ped per 200ped wasted ammo.. did same run in feffoids in calypso and had 2.5ped armor decay..

    this is whats killing me the most.. huge armor repairs.. while the loot aint any better.. could we get some nerf on some mobs

    and whats up with some mobs with their super special attacks that hit 1 dmg type with huge power.. like bokol and kamaldon.. on bokol stalker its like this.. 1, 1, 1, 50, 1, 1, 1, 50

    While i agree that armor decay is high on arkadian mobs, if your armor decay is that high you may also want to look into easier mobs, getting more evade or getting a higher dps weapon.

    The higher attack rate makes the mobs higher level which makes them drop higher MU items. For instance, hunt huon vs Oratan, Huon only drop TT stuff, Oratan drop 130% guns, 200% paint, etc. Evader level is key, hunt mobs at your level and you shouldn't need to have repair bills over 5%.

    They weren't rare on my last oratan hunt average MU was about 107%. Doesn't sound like much but considering most mobs are like 102%, it's not bad.

    Ruskea, the mobs here dont do alot of different dmg types they just do different ones then what you are used to since years on Calypso which is how it should be if you ask me. Everything that makes them different then what Caly always had is as it should be on a new planet.

    As others said, you're hunting above your level or with wrong kind of armor if you have that high costs.
    There usually isn't one for all armors unless you are prepared to pay for it.

    I am happy about the high armor decay, maybe ppl will lurn to use healers more :D, i think its a good feature to motivate ppl to play togethere...
    if u give 15 ped for armor repair or give 13 or 16 ped to a fapper for decay... ur cost dont change much... but u helped a person who is still at the beginning of the game alot.... so... use no armor and use fappers :D
    have a nice day

    what.. do different dmg types than in caly? almost every mob hit imp,cut,stab in arkadia some even do 4th type on top of those like kadra.. in caly atrox do imp,cut,stab but they dont hit nearly as often as mobs in arkadia reducing the decay with many peds.. i try to keep my armors so i dont get hit 1s much but also wont receive too large hits.. only thing i see that could/should be fixed is the regen or hit %

    and also if i change to armor without all the dmg types the mobs hit all the peds i save from armor decay goes to fapping coz the dmg output is quite high on 1k hp mobs

    I don't really agree that the number of damage types is a problem. Armour decay is in line with the total protection offered and if you want less protection then wear less protective armour.

    But I do acknowledge that many of the mobs attack frequently and hit often, compared to caly - if your evade is too low. I have noticed a huge difference the amount I get hit now compared to when I first started on Akardia (I have increased my Evader profession lvl by at least 50% in that time). If you are finding your defense bill is too high then you need to drop back to lower lvl mobs or chip in some evade.

    Regards,

    You miss what Kikki is saying, you need more evade personally not change all the mobs because you like to hunt "same lvl" mobs as you always done.
    I could agree with Kadra regen tho based on one thing melee hunters can't get high enough dps to to do those effectively, while if you have high enough dps gun they don't even hit you and Kadra hit way less now then they used to do as cats

    PS. Kadra don't do cut/imp/stab/pen, they do however cut/imp/pen

    so they do cut imp pen.. hów come my armor decay was approximately 5 to 6ped higher with mahketta+5bs on kadras than in other mobs? shouldnt it be less coz the plates wouldnt decay as much coz only receive 2 types of dmg

    kadras eat the armor most from any mobs i hunt in arkadia.. so the only answer i can find to that is that they hit more than 3 types of dmg

    No worries. I checked Entropedia and only found 3 damage types listed but I look forward to seeing results of your tests. Regards, KikkiJikki

    Not according to the page history.

    In any case, I think its great that you rely on your own experience instead of taking someone else's views as gospel. But I will say that Oleg uses a sound methodology and puts enough detail into his results to allow them to be validated. So that gives me a high degree of confidence in his findings. We still don't know the % breakdown though, so if you were prepared to do some tests and share your results that would be much appreciated.
