    I logged after today's update in my favorite spawn of small Yuka and started shooting straight away where i stopped before logging off....
    I noticed instantly that mob hits me harder - quick estimate, damage dealt is 1.5 times bigger than before.
    Believe me, I camped this mob since launch day so I know what I'm talking about.
    Also mobs are much more aggressive and attack without warning in situations that was before safe!

    Chatted with another hunter in area and he/she confirmed my observations.

    Scanned mob reveals exact same stats as on launch day.... so what is changed...?

    Did you noticed it on other/same mobs also?

    Edit:
    Two hours after this post Cyrus posted this changes in VU listing:

    Huon lvls increased (young 26, mature 29) and they are agro and do more damage. Spawn may be denser. on the bright side my armour set up is no longer overprotection. lol

    You really think something that had so much hp and hit so little would stay that way for long?

    Anything can change. No problem with that. A little warning would be nice though.

    hmm lucky me I read the release notes before I started playing. I guess that wasn´t quite possible if you where ready for EU after download.
    Personaly I don´t care that much about mob stats changes. It´s adapt or die as all in EU is. However I would REALLY like to see improvements in item droprates now that the creatures are tougher. One thing is certain I am NOT going to hunt even tougher mobs which still drop like no items at all. I'll just leave for Calypso in the next few days if that is the case. I´ll give the A-team and MA some more time to get the droprates right till the space release... but I will be on the planet that yields the highest MU returns on that day. Just sayin.

    I thought the decay on Arkadia mobs was already high and my loot has sucked since day one, I came back to Arkadia yesterday to see if anything had changed with regards to items in loot, nope same old rubbish loot and now these nerfs to add more decay :(

    Think I will move this over to Feedback, lots already being posted about the changes today, but they are described in the update notes, and Dave has responded on some of this in the Feedback section as well.

    Hi Snape, yes I mean it would be helpful to have the release notes posted before the servers come online. Tonight I looked for release notes while servers were down, found the MA notes but nothing for Arkadia. Once servers were up I checked again and then logged on. Went hunting and encountered exciting times with huons. Received similar feedback on other mobs from soc mates. I check forums and still found no release notes. At the time I made the above post, release notes had not yet been posted.

    I understand it is not desirable to post the notes too early but once the update is available (so release is going ahead) then it would be handy to have access to the notes. We've seen a fair bit of negative reaction to these changes tonight and I feel that could be mitigated somewhat if we had a chance to think about the implications before we port into the middle of a formerly mild mannered mob spawn.

    PP generally does an excellent job on the communications front but so far, release notes run a little late. Please consider a change to this process.

    Regards,
    KikkiJikki

    Hmmm I think you'll find I had nothing to do with it as I'm not a member of staff of Arkadia Studios ;) However, I'm sure those that responsible for such things are are taking note.

    Yep understood. I'm sure Dave and Cyrus are already here and seeing this feedback but i'll PM the link to them anyway.

    As for RSS feeds for Release notes and Server Downtime etc, Vantastic is on the job.

    Unless it's just been added since this post, the About Arkadia section has a RSS feed tag you can follow.

    Thanks. A few people have commented that they wanted to know about server downtime and upcoming VU's etc in addition to the feeds we already have so we are looking into that right now...doing so from an iPhone is a bit slow though ;)

    Yeps. But their HP is decreased. I actually like them a lot more now.. feels like actually hunting a mob instead of shooting a static blue papplon :p

    Haven't tried Huon since update yet, but when I first hunted those, I did it in gnome armour lol.. so basicly .. a change was needed..

    Anyways! GL out there fellow Arkadian Pioneers ;)
