    Ok this is an important topic Id like the Cyrene community input on .

    NB : In no way this is intended to be complaining as such, but as a member of this Cyrene community I believe this needs to be discussed further.

    As of the latest VU many mobs were upgraded and the Cyrene Team introduced a new hunting area with 2 new mobs (Wiles and MuckJaw) and a bigger spawn of Skreel.

    Since the VU was released on the 29th May ive hunted closed to 10800ped TT in that time and realise that after today ive almost lost the lot and this has never happened in just over 48 hours in the almost 7 years ive played EU/PE.

    It seems the new upgraded mobs are still looting exactly the same average loot as if they wernt upgraded, especially the Wiles mob that is a 4000HP mob and the average return non global is under 3 ped (which is the same average as an Ambulimax Young but almost 2.5 x the HP).

    At the moment we are looking at an average loot of the original mob without the upgrade , it seems MA has not upgraded the loot average on all upgraded mobs, therefore effecting the loot cycle on the entire planet resulting in falling loot averages (my opinion and not necessarily fact).

    Id like everyones input who hunts on Cyrene and has noticed the loot return on these recently upgraded mobs, cause this may effect hunters leaving the planet. and as the thread topic says I hope this is not the case that im the only one this has happened too.

    Another thing no one in EU has seen the loot effect of an upgraded mob (this is a unique first for Cyrene and has never happened on any other planet since the regen of mobs was introduced in 2007), maybe we have to all hunt this mob and eventually may start to balance up as we fill the loot pool, but this does not help the current returns ive and hopefully many have been experiencing lately.

    Now i have to work out how to survive this major loss.

    Cheers:)

    I think you just filled Wiles loot and atm one team is globaling and hofing like crazy on them :) . Also i noticed really bad loot on Mang Chang yesterday but then I switched to Scout Bots and got back every single PED I lost before so it just evens out sooner or later. You might want to change mob if it is really that bad for you.

    I noticed same low average returns, also noticed that the other professions have same low returns but...
    It seems to me that cyrene hunting/mining/crafting is like somewhere in between Calypso and F.O.M.A. I get really bad returns then one big one to cover almost all.
    When mining I find less claims on cyrene, but those I find are larger.
    Crafting is worse for me, out of 10 runs of simple I conductors (500 clicks each), I only profited one time, and returns are so bad I am ashamed to even say :(

    I must say that cycling 10k PEDs on 4k-6k HP mobs is way too low. Cost to kill 1 mob solo is around 15-30ped (depends on the dps)? So in order to even start looking at average returns you need to kill atleast 500 of them. Atleast that is how it works with my hunting on any other mob.

    Yeah it seems like a sort of x2-x3 (FOMA is x5) I think its something to do with the Cyrene Evolution Cycle, I wouldnt be suprised if some huge hofs go off here.

    i think this always kinda happens when you add a planet it takes a while for MA to get the balancing right and they are obviously going to lean to wards the lower loots before letting it get bigger.

    I had the same experiance with hunting lately on Cyrene. I just stopped hunting for now and moved to Arkadia to check out treasure hunting. Will be back when it gets better again
