Based on which "Hunt Frequency" the player has selected, the Tracking system will make Tracking skill checks at various intervals for their currently specified Hunting player/creature type based as follows:


Current Combatant

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks, but only against your current combat target
  • IE. Last creature you double-clicked or did damage to


Always Get Closest

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks and set your tracking target to whatever is closest
  • Ideal for gaining Tracking skill


Follow Only Individual

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks but only against the last selection you made from the regular Tracking Results window
  • Players should always select this mode when they want to track and follow another player that is likely moving


New When No Arrow

  • Will only make Tracking skill checks when you don't have a Tracking Arrow active on screen
  • Ideal for farming


New When No Target

  • Will only make Tracking skill checks when you don't have a Tracking Arrow active on screen and your last tracked target is no longer trackable, due to being dead or too far away
  • Ideal for farming and having an uncluttered screen
