Hunting technique[edit | edit source]

A copper longtail being caught.

The hunting technique is the same as for other birds. Players must set up a bird snare and wait until a bird gets stuck in it. Players may repeatably use the same bird snare. Bird snares are available for purchase in Hunter shops.

Multiple traps[edit | edit source]

Bird snaring can be done with multiple traps at once, with the maximum amount of traps depending on the player's Hunter level.

Hunter Traps
1 1
20 2
40 3
60 4
80 5

The copper longtail is found in temperate wooded regions and is one of the most common birds in the world. Although its appearance is unremarkable it is a graceful and successful bird that continues to fend well for itself.
