    A few have said there is no proof of long term 90%+ tt return...

    http://arkadiaforum.com/showthread.p...rell-s-Hunting ... my hunting log that has been going since August 2012

    138111.08 tt spent (ammo/armor+weapon+amp+fap decay)
    131903.14 tt looted (tt of loot)

    95.5% tt return ... usually more towards 96%+ but in bad phase atm

    Biggest hunting loot so far was 2k Riptor Alpha hit after 95k cycle

    Most used gear:

    Cap 34 Jungle + a104 - 49.5 dps -2.925 dpp
    Law 46 Jungle + a104 - 50.1 dps - 2.913 dpp
    Raw 505 + a104 (3 x dmg enhance) - 42.2 dps - 2.8 dpp ~ 1/3 of ammo spent with this gun
    Ark 34 desert + beast - 50.1 dps - 2.899 dpp
    Asi 37 + beast - 53.1 dps - 2.901 dpp
    X1 + beast ~ no dps stats on entropedia ?
    P46 + a104 - 58.4 dps - 2.899 dpp ~ my favorite pistol by far atm

    Anyone not getting at least 90% is definitely doing something wrong, and I am not going for the most eco setup either ... for me its more important to have the dps to minimise my "time in front of mob" and to not get stuck hunting a mob that is paying out poorly.

    I have plenty of good sized data sets with over 90% tt return too. There's no proof of the once popular theory that no matter what you do you'll still get 90% return in the long run. Because it was always a load of b******s

    Anyone up for burning 5 lv13 amps in one spot, and then burning 2 more while mining regularly ?

    Perhaps the magic 90% figure became general lore from the return of exactly 90% of ped (in ped, not loot) when coloring. Of course, that figure does not include the decay of the tool. So even in this case eco matters.

    Yes, exactly, and I hope nobody has ever interpreted what I say to mean that. If you do stupid shit in this game it's very easy to get less than that.

    In my experience though, if you can maintain an Eco of around 2.8+, and keep your defensive costs around 5%, you are pretty much garuanteed 90%+, provided you cycle enough peds for the size of the mob you are hunting.

    The exception to this is the instances, because they are broken.

    Give me the amps and probes and I'll do it.

    Konve tried something similar (without the amps) a while back, which ended with the result:

    For the record I have still not seen any kind of "payback".
