Hi everybody,
I’ve posted a new video on hunting rune beetles – a great way to train up a new pet while looking for a nice beetle to tame!

  1. Dang, my first attempt to comment vanished in the haze.

    Two important factual errors in the video, Kit.

    1. Rune Beetles don’t need to be beaten down, unlike Giant Beetles. You can tame then when they’re at full health. Just peace and lead tame.

    The benefit of this method is that they don’t bless themselves and give you a false high reading.

    You were using the Rune Beetles, however, more as a training aid for you Cu in this video.

    2. Tamed dex is fixed on these bugs. You entered 170 in the calculator when the tamed beetle’s dex was in the 130s.

    Rune Beetles have little application apart from PvP. Thus max dex is important so they can keep up with you at mounted speed. And very high eval is more important than poisoning when fighting people who are equipped to handle the level of poison Rune Beetles inflict.

  2. You’re right on the subjugation, Ansel. Indeed, they do not have to be beaten down – I misspoke. (I had just finished dying a few times working on a doggone fire bug). If I’m understanding your second point correctly, it’s that a starting dex over 125 will not train up any higher – correct. I suppose I could script these ahead of time, but that takes all of the spontaneity out of it 🙂 I do appreciate the corrections. Thanks!

  4. Hi Dianne, It’s Pinco’s UI (a custom UI for the Enhanced Client). You can find the download link and details on it here: http://stratics.com/threads/pincos-ui.249270/ 🙂
