Hunting technique[edit | edit source]
The hunting technique is the same as for a couple other kebbits. Catching a polar kebbit involves tracking it from its hole to its final destination by searching for its trail. The player can unveil a kebbit's trail by searching the holes, tunnels, hollow logs and snow drifts. The kebbits are always found in snow drifts when caught. They can be caught by "attacking" the snow drift while wielding a noose wand.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
To catch a Polar Kebbit, the player must search a burrow of one of the kebbits by clicking on it, following the tracks to find the kebbit's next hiding area, and finally snaring it with a noose wand by searching the snow drift and right-clicking and selecting attack snow drift.
Usually, tracking the kebbit takes about three segments. The use of tracks, and the fact that Polar Kebbits are the level 1 creature, makes many players assume that catching polar kebbits is a linear follow-the-tracks exercise. In fact, it's more like connect-the-dots.
Start with either of the two holes, because those are the places to begin finding kebbit tracks.
Once the tracks are found, the kebbit will not be where the tracks lead. Instead, they will lead to where the kebbit went next.
A survey of the area will familiarise the player with the tunnel entrances, logs, etc. If the kebbit went into a burrow complex, for example, odds are that they came out of another hole leading from that area. They might also zip across the ice to nearby burrow holes, especially if tracks lead to snowbanks, so check those. The point is, there are a limited set of possibilities, depending on where your kebbit tracks are.
By the time two track sets are found, there is a possibility that tracks will lead the player to a hiding kebbit at the third stop. Make sure to wield the noose wand, and have at least three inventory slots free. The mechanics are as follows:
The player can search a suspected snowdrift. If a kebbit is present, a message will appear, saying something like, "It looks like there might be a creature hiding under this snowdrift". If there is no kebbit in the drift, a message will say, "It appears this snowdrift is devoid of creatures".
A ring of pursuit may help with speeding up the process of levelling up, since there is a 25% chance to reveal the entire track at once when equipped.
