Last time we were here, Dauntless was in a state of alpha and showed potential, with a basic idea of where the online monster hunter was going. With the release of the latest major content update, that potential has certainly grown into something that feels more finished than Dauntless has ever been. Allow me to elaborate on this Dauntless Sharpen Your Skills preview.
With this update, everyone was punted back to the very beginning of Progression, which leads to the addition of some minor layering to the hunts that are available to you this time around. Previously, everyone simply headed to an NPC, blew through some lines of dialogue, and all of a sudden a specific creature was available to hunt. Players now have to run some patrol missions of an area enough times to earn a Wayfinder’s Mark to track down a specific creature.
