Developed by Phoenix Labs, Dauntless is the brand new free-to-play monster hunting game that’s just left its extensive beta phase. Here’s how the Danger meter works in Dauntless, and how you can lower it in the game.
How the Danger Meter Works in Dauntless
First things first, whenever you’re out exploring the world in Dauntless, your Danger meter will go up naturally. This is because you’re constantly surrounded by Behemoths and other dangerous monsters, so even if you aren’t actively engaged in combat, you might see it increase.
The meter can be observed from the top right corner of your screen, where you’ll see a percentage count. The higher the count, the higher your Danger meter.
Aside from just spending too much time out in the wild, there are several other factors that will cause your Danger meter to go up, as listed below:
- Fighting a Behemoth
- A party member goes down
- Going down in battle
Because of this, it’s extremely important that you keep your health up as much as possible to avoid collapsing in battle. If a teammate happens to collapse in battle, you’ll want to revive them as quickly as possible to keep your Danger meter low in Dauntless.
In addition to that, dealing large amounts of damage to a Behemoth and causing it to flee will also lower your Danger meter.
What Danger Does
At this point, you might be wondering exactly how the Danger meter affects you in Dauntless. Well, you don’t really have to worry about it, at least not until it reaches 100%, then you’ll start to panic.
When the meter is maxed out, you’ll no longer be able to revive any downed party members. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Behemoths and enemies will also hit much harder when the Danger meter is maxed out, which means you’ll go down much faster.
At this point, your best bet is to deal as much damage to your foe as quickly as possible in an attempt to get it to flee. If you’re successful, the Behemoth will flee, and will help to lower your meter a little.
