Hello from the Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Hello from the Netherlands. Not new to the game, nor to the forums (reading along for a while). I play Interloper exclusively, and achieved my "Will to Live" achievement in Interloper by surviving 500 days. Granted, it was with the old exploitable wolf AI where you could just throw down bait and shoot them in the head with ease. The new wolf AI in much more challenging, especially as they now frequent areas where they didn't go prior to the Errant Pilgrim update.

Currently in my new Interloper run (30 days in), having just crafted an improvised knife & hatchet, plus arrowheads. I only seem to have misplaced my bedroll (lost because of the "falling through" bug most likely). Will try to find another bedroll, or prioritize crafting a Bearskin Bedroll (I don't use the Bearskin Coat anyway).

Hi Willem. Good luck on your loper run.

True, with the bow, you must hold your shot until the wolf last 20 meters charge moment (when he goes straight). When possible, I attempt a long range shoot, in case of failing to wound or scare the wolf, I have time to have a second arrow ready or flee.

Ps: I ❤️ Amsterdam, bicycles, trams and Van Gogh paintings

I'm actually having decent results with starting a fire (on a sunny day so it doesn't cost me a match), and luring a wolf with scent. He will then pause and growl a few meters from the fire. If you then draw you bow he will flee, but not fast enough. I can usually get a decent shot in, sometimes a critical hit (torso). Not sure if this is 100% safe, but we'll see. I have a hatchet and decent protection, so a wolf struggle is unlikely to fatal.

My run is going great, losing my bedroll proved to be an interesting challenge. Survived 70 days without a bedroll, and never even had cabin fever risk. Now 90 days in and staying in the Ravine cave close to Carter Hydro Dam. Crafted Bearskin Bedroll and Moose cloak (no satchel yet). I plan to live in Desolation point for a while (never did that before). I only explored Mystery Lake, Coastal Highway and Desolation point yet, so I have plenty more exploring to do.

If found that the bearskin bedroll was decaying really fast and you can fix it only with bearskin. I also lost it (ruined bug after using it in a cave) so I probably will try the bear coat next.

The Moose cloack is great, but the sachtel is always my priority. I can resist more carrying space lol
