Dog hints and tips series

Postby Bumblewoot » July 25th, 2018, 2:13 pm

Hello all,

I have always loved the addition of dogs to thehunter classic, and I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out all the small details on how they work. Over the last couple years I have responded to many posts on the steam forums, some here, and in game answering questions on how to use the dogs. Primarily the scent hound.

I joined an MP game the other day, and someone I had never met before recognised me. He had googled how to train a scent hound in thehunter classic and in the top few results were posts that I responded to on the steam forums.

It got me thinking that people must be googling this sort of thing, so why not try and make a little video series to try and better explain it. So that is what I am trying to do.

The first video is hints and tips and some basics a lot of people didn't know. It is a little dry, but I felt I had to get the info out there. The second video (which I will post shortly) is a demonstration hints and tips of the scent hound that reveals pretty accurately the good and the bad of the scent hound. (In a fairly entertaining way)

The pointer dog is by far the most useful and complicated dog out of the three and my little series is just gearing up to show the more advanced stuff with the pointer. The pointer is a pretty awesome edition.

Thanks!

Video 1: Just some hints and tips and some info on a recent game change that should make starting out with a dog easier:

Video 2: A waterbuffalo hunt with the scent hound - it's a entertaining little video that reveals exactly what you get with the scent hound. The joy and the struggles =)

Future videos will be some good pointer dog info (currently level 45)

Good tips. The only thing I would add is that I have put my dog back on the track using tracks or blood trails as long as you have started off with a blood trail.
