The prey system gives a bonus while hunting a certain creature for a certain amount of time. From each of the prey slots you can choose one creature out of 9 creatures. (These 9 creatures are randomly selected from a large pool of creatures, but there will always be some low-level creatures, some mid-level creatures and some high-level creatures). If you don't want to hunt any of the 9 creatures presented to you, you have several options:
- wait 20 hours for a free creature list reroll, which counts for each prey slot;
- buy extra list rerolls with gold coins if needed, the price depending on your level.
After you selected a creature and a bonus, a timer will run for 2 hours when hunting any creature, not just the one you selected to hunt. When the 2 hours are over the creature your selected will vanish from the prey slot and you can select another one.
I know people lock preys if they hunt only 2 hours daily and always in the same place. I tried to lock my preys by using one Prey Wildcard to select randomly bonus. I lost a lot tibia coins in this way because I do more things in this game (daily bosses, charms or quests). I wonder if there is any tactic for more active players (like me) to don't lose preys so fast ? Is it worth to lock preys by active players?
