Commonly, you can cut the tails off of creatures when fighting them. Does this give you some sort of bonus or is it a cool visual effect? (e.g. Bonus damage or bonus loot)

Are there any drawbacks from cutting the tails off creatures? (e.g. Different loot-pools)

  • Is this actually playable right now?

  • @Frank It's playable with the purchase of a founder's pack, yes.

I was watching a stream today and according to them,

  • Chopping off body parts can have a combat effect (e.g. Gnasher's tail can no longer be used for combat once chopped off, obviously)
  • Chopping off body parts can have a loot effect (i.e. Copping off parts drops an orb of some sort that gives you a generic loot item from the monster).
  • There is no apparent effect or bonus for not chopping off a body part.
  • 1
    I play the game myself, and this is basically it. Also you don't do extra damage to chopped off/damaged body parts.

  • That's why I said combat effect instead of bonus, but that's not super obvious I guess :P
