I don't know about any of the claims, but I've been hunting legit (because I'm not an exploiting lowlife) and I can make 20 mil an hour pretty consistently. I see people forechopping next to me, and they kill 8 wolves in the time I kill 1 (artisan 10 matchlock, 5 crit, 5 attack speed, khalk wine and alchemy stone for 5% attack speed bonus). I'm convinced that these guys make at least 5 or 6 times as much as I do, which may not be 300 million an hour per se, but will be at least over 100 million an hour, and that's not even counting the fact that the blood and meat go up in value by a ton once processed. What it boils down to is that a lvl 0 hunter can be 8 times more efficient as someone who's put in countless hours to grind out the life skill, comes prepared with all the possible buffs that are relevant, and has the best possible matchlock in the game. yet there's still people going "this is fine". This is not fine, and the level of profit is possibly on par with the shoveling exploit from ages ago, and we all know what happened there. I sincerely hope that every single person abusing this ridiculous mechanic will have their account banned. Thanks for ruining the one niche life skill I was proud of being high ranked at!
