General Information

Animals can be seen on the game map. They move or attack on their own twice an hour, once at 5 minutes past and once at 35 minutes past, and will also attack reactively (and immediately) each time they are attacked by a player.

Most animals are passive and will only attack a player actively if the player has attacked them, at which point the animal will attack once every 30 minutes until they are dead, the player is dead, the player runs away, or a different player harms them. Other animals, including elephants, tigers, and wild boars, will attack without provocation. A player who sleeps near such an animal may wake to find that they have been mauled and possibly killed because the animal wandered across their location.

Attacking Animals

When you attack an animal you receive XP equal to the damage listed for the weapon you used. Killing an animal yields an additional bonus of (5 + max HP) / 2, rounded up (For example, if a monkey has 1 HP remaining when you kill it with a machete that deals 3 HP of damage, your action gives you 3 XP for the damage and 8 for the kill, totaling 11.)

Attacking animals is a great source of experience points for new arrivals to the island, though when lacking any combat skills it is hard even to kill a parrot! It is also done for sport by some, like the Exotic Sports Hunting Club, and the various adventurers who seek the legendary giant squids. Many players use their first several hundred action points doing little except seeking out and attacking animals, so that they may gain enough experience--and thus skills--to do other things effectively. Beware on the hunt, though, as all animals have been known to defend themselves, and some can tear you apart or stomp you to death very quickly.

Recommended Supplies

When hunting, be sure to take the following items to lengthen your survival time.

  • First Aid Kits/Healing Herbs - These will cure bleeding wounds so you don't bleed out all over the place.
  • Machete/Cutlasses - Bring more than one since these do break.
  • Rifles/Blowpipes - These deal high damage to the animals. Recommended if you are a Soldier or Warrior.

Punching animals

Sometimes punching a large animal or aggressive one can yield these special messages.

  • You attack the animal and miss. Suddenly attacking the animal with your bare hands doesn't seem so clever!
  • You attack the animal and miss. Pausing a moment to reflect on this, tackling the animal with your bare hands might be considered crazy!
