Go through the deserted mountains and forests to kill beasts with your bow and arrow. The fur, the bones and the flesh you obtained using a sharp sabre can be used for making equipment, and as ingredients for cooking.

Hunter is a gathering type Life Skill that allows the players to skin, disjoint and gut certain animals and collect their meat (smashed or in different cuts - tenderloins, ribs, shoulders, hips, legs, jaws/cheeks), internal organs (hearts, kidneys, gizzards, gallbladders, intestines), blood, eggs, bones, body parts (heads, paws, tails), pelts/skins/furs, feathers, teeth/fangs/tusks, horns/antlers, hooves and other products like bezoars (gallstones).

Learning to Hunt[edit | edit source]

Players learn this profession by purchasing it from a Hunter Life Skill Master who can be found in any town or city. To see Life Skill Masters on the map, player may open their map (M), select "Life Master" at the bottom, and click on "Map Icon Hunter NPC.pngHunter".

The price for learning this profession will depend on what other gathering skills are already learned. Upon learning the skill, players:

  • are given 1 Skinning Knife (lowest level type)
  • are granted 20 Hunter Life Skill Experience points
  • are allowed to challenge the "First Hunting" identity
  • can perform the Hunter's Daily Task.

To use this life skill, players must have a hunting knife in their backpack.

Complementary Professions[edit | edit source]

In Age of Wulin, professions complement each other.

The resources gathered through hunting are used by many professions:

The Hunting Process[edit | edit source]

Tools of the Trade[edit | edit source]

In order to skin animals, hunters must have a hunting knife in their Backpack. A low-level knife is given to the player when they learn the profession, but better, stronger ones can be bought from the Miner Life Skill Master in any town or city.

Every time a player skins, their knife's durability will be reduced by a few points. When the durability drops to zero, the knife will be destroyed and players will need to buy a new one. So it is always a good idea to buy the highest level knife as soon as possible so as to avoid having to return to town frequently.

Searching for Prey[edit | edit source]

Before hunting, players must first find their prey. This is no easy task, as there are a great number of animals in Age of Wulin, and some aren't even skinnable. But finding prey is not as hopeless as it seems. Here's how to do it.

Searching Screen

First, players can find a list of animals and their drops right in their Life screen (I). Double-clicking on the Hunter's bow and arrow icon in the Life Screen (I), or selecting it and right-clicking the "Searching" icon at the bottom will bring players to a search screen.

This search screen displays to the left a list of animals in the current scene. Clicking on any of them will display to the right their Skinning Drops (and Extra Drops). But players aren't restricted to searching only the current scene: in the top-right corner there is a drop-down menu with a list of all the areas in the game. There is also a search box beneath, where players can enter the name of the prey to be looked up.

On the Map

Ok, so now players know they can find Piglets in Chengdu that drop Minced Meat. Where exactly are these Changdu Piglets?

Once the right map is pulled up, players can click the "Search NPC" in the top right corner of the map screen and use the search box to type the name of their prey. The search box is case-sensitive, so typing "wild duck" won't result in anything, but writing "Wild Duck" will.

Once the search finds the desired animal, it will be displayed under "Beasts". Players can click it and red dots tracking the position of the animals will appear on the map.

Hunting and Skinning[edit | edit source]

After finding their prey, the player can attack and kill them as with any other NPCs. Once dead, the animals can be looted normally. After that, their corpses will stay a little while longer to allow the player to right-click them again and start skinning. If the character moves or takes damage during this process, the skinning will be cancelled.

The yield varies from 0 to around 7 depending on the item obtained and the level of the Hunter. Hunting yields can be increased with temporary strategy books:

  • Hunting Strategy (3 Days): Awarded by the Hunter Life Skill Masters for completing a one time Hunter's Task. Grants 3 days of tripled harvest rewards.
  • Hunting Strategy (30 Days): Available from the Fisherman Life Skill Masters for Silverlogo.png 100 Liang unbound silver. Grants 30 days of tripled harvest rewards.
