No light hides for non tier 1 heros?
« on: December 05, 2009, 09:13:21 AM »
Is it true that you cannot get light hides if you are not a tanner (duh..) and not tier 1???

I completed the storyline in hopes village by killing Rolon's brother in the multistage even though I was tier 2. So tier >1 tanners can attack but don't recieve hides? is that it?

No that is not correct. A tanner always has a chance at collecting hides, regardless of his level....BUT, the more levels there are between you and your prey, the harder the gathering will become.

Geomaticus. Do you know the exact formula between the chance of collecting these notorious light hides and level difference modifier? I think it would be useful information for the tanners, who want to get some of these.

I doubt anyone knows the exact formula. I believe since light hides are a drop from monsters, they are affected by the level difference modifier, which is explained here :

Therefore, its better to be within 1 level of difference of the enemy to have the best chance to skin hides.
