The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • The Hunter's Cloak masks your scent, which can be used to hunt and blend in with wild animals. It makes normally hostile animals peaceful, unless attacked.
    • This allows you to kill Frogs and grab Chickens more easily because they will not run away.
    • This also allows a player to get close to hostile animals like Boars and Wolves.
  • Wolves and Boars can be tamed much easier than normal, as you will not need any Meat or Foraged Items, and they will not act hostile towards you.


Chapter 2: Season 6

  • Update v16.00: Added the Hunter's Cloak as an Uncommon Craftable Item. It can be crafted from Animal Bones and Meat.

  • Spire Assassin would not attack you if you had this equipped when encountering her. However, if you equipped it mid-fight, she would remain hostile.
  • It will appear on your back like a Back Bling when used.
