I was having a bit of a time understanding the various toos(twos?)-and-fros of hunting earlier, and said that I’d bring it up in the forum, because during a hunt probably wasn’t the best time.
I frequently fall behind, and don’t wish to be a pain, so I just run until I catch up. Oh, yeah, and I do use them, but I don’t want to totally waste the grapples, they don’t grow on trees, like berries.
Now I’ve always been told that portals make a hunt unplayable or something (I can’t actually remember the reason why) that essentially makes them persona (portalona!) non-grata during a hunt. Maybe it gives too much lag or something. Frankly, I only started to get portals very recently, despite a few hundred hours in game.
I always liked HOST’s FUTURE setup where there’s a portal to each region, actually. If anyone ever builds a hunt planet, then doing that could really help newbies and latecomers.
Anyway, yeah … I was told today that I could portal in if it’s to catch up with the group.
But then I was given conflicting information to go back to the sanctum. So I really don’t know what to do.
(to be clear, that’s insulting my own deficient brain )
But, the thing is I’m almost always lagging behind for some reason, so would it actually not be a very good idea for me to keep doing it?
(also, hehehe, there’s the issue of those that portal’ed directly in to a lava pit today )
Anyway … I’m just a bit muddled and looking for pointers regarding hunts, and portals.
