Hunting Times?

Greetings! Well, I was wondering how long you Achaeans usually hunt for (edit: non-PvP, just clarifying)? I'm trying to hunt a bit more often nowadays - usually for an hour, but I'm quite interested in your input!

    Maybe I'll make a separate poll for that, lol.

    I selected one hour or less, but..

    does hunting other adventurers count?

    I hunt once probably every 2 RL weeks for about 10 minutes.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    Nowadays I have to be in the mood to hunt and then I usually do so for an hour or two granted no one has picked my preferred hunting grounds clean or are trying to gank me. When I was going for dragon and then after when I was still delusional enough to think I could every catch Penwize(or anyone in the top 10 or so) I would hunt all the time.

    When I was trying to get to 80 it was about two hours, I get bored after that. Since then, it's gone down a bit to between an hour and an hour and a half. Though, sometimes if I just have a little time I'll go on a shorter trip.

    I also bashed in larger chunks (1-3 hours at a time, 0-2 times a day, probably 5-6 times a week on average) for my final push to 80. Having a large, immediate goal like that is good motivation. Otherwise, I usually clear one or two areas before I get bored, maybe 30-60 minutes at most.

    I go through surges of wanting to hunt and wanting nothing to do with the act. Even when feeling up to it, I find it really hard to go on for more than an hour, if even that. Much as I'd love to one day hit dragon, it's a distant thing and'll likely never come!

    I actually enjoy it and would probably do more if I had time to. Part of what I like is the exploration factor that goes along with it so when that inevitably runs out I may get more bored of it.

    When I get in the mood to hunt, it is usually a lot at once. I usually remain runed and blessed with a truefavour and borrow arties, then just keep going for a pretty long time. But I also do about 15-20 minutes at a time between crazy sprees.

    (oops, I think the 15-20 minute trips are far more numerous than the 5+ hour trips!)

    If it was more engaging I would probably hunt longer.

    When I go hunting, I usually hunt continuously for a reason, either for gold or for corpses to raise shrines with. I can go up to 3 hours a time as a result.

    Bashing spree to Dragon right now. Before, it would probably be a hour to two hours though

    Depending on what I am doing, I might spend an hour on UW/Annwyn, or spend 3-4 hours going between fave hunting spots and random areas.

    I have a terrible habit of distracting myself. Like going to Meropis and remembering that I'm low on reagents, so I end up killing birds instead of hunting better stuff.

    Ideally, it's whether two hours or 5-10% come first. Damn bashing to dragon with a full time job.

    30 minutes to an hour.  I hunt for a distinct purpose (need to raise a shrine, need to sanctify/defile a shrine or farm gold) and that's pretty much it.  If I was negative essence to a patron I'd hunt and offer to at least even.

    Dying used to upset me so much when I was going for dragon, I usually have to take a break in frustration.

    I will admit that I was pretty upset to lose an entire weekend of hunting's worth of experience while defending a sewer raid.

    It just gives me something to make up when I hunt next weekend though.

    Lol, I go on raids against Ashtan and Targossas expecting to die without getting kills (which I inevitably do, being the propper D:) At least I get back more exp off duels <.< Actually, I went back up from 78 to 84 off duelling for the most part >.> A fair bit from raids and city destruction, but mostly duels haha.

    I used to hate dying, but my hatred for dying actually taught me the best possible ways to bash.  Then, I learned that dying was pretty recoverable and only a minor setback, and I made pretty liberal use of death to learn how to take on certain things.  I used to die constantly in the LHG before I finally got all the little nuances of staying alive in there, now I barely do.

    As for how much I hunt?  I hunt most of the time that I'm online, and do as many things as I can via channels or tells.  Unless I'm hunting down people for contracts, raiding, teaching, testing, or whatever else, I'm hunting.

    Nowadays I am lucky if I can put in ten minutes before the arrows start firing  :P  But thats an excuse really, I've never been able of hunting for more than half hour at the most. It gets incredibly tiresome incredibly fast.

    I used to hate bashing... but I hated having to eat and sleep even more. That said... I only recently learned that you could increase Willpower by meditating, so I may have longer sprees from now on.

    I either bash for 3 weeks straight, no eat no sleep, or not at all. Middle ground and schedules and organisation is for wimps, pansies and people with lives.

    When I hunt, I hunt down to 50% willpower, usually. I get at least 5-6% (at level 90 as a BM without much fitness/no endurance ring). Trying to make at least one round a day, some days I feel like hunting non-stop for hours, others I'm good just sitting around, lol.

    I only hunt for one hour or less a time when I end up hunting. It takes away from my time spent catching things!

    I live at my hunting ground. I spend more time there than anywhere productive.
