Island Beetles

#1KuroichigalPosted 6/19/2013 6:20:00 PM
The island is a "V" straight down from the door, as far as you can go would be the point.

I come from the right side down all beetles freak out and fly away.

I come from the left up they stay chill.

So is there a specific direction I need to be facing? Not having my back turned to them?

Personally, for the side I go "down" on, I stay on the island part (grass edge), going down only so much to see if there are bugs on the trees. Then I slowly go up to them if they are on there, stopping every once in a while.

I noticed there's a certain flight distance, and by getting them from the back you tend to get much closer to them. I suggest trying to circle around them to catch them, keeping a constant distance.

Use the your shadow and the shadow of the palm trees to your advantage, they often tell you how close you can get before the beetles flying off.

Goliath beetles are completely oblivious. I've literally walked up to them and stood RIGHT NEXT to them and they didn't get scared off =S Golden stags and Hercules on the other hand...

Ive noticed some of the bigger beetles (especially the golden stag) will just fly away if I stop suddenly but I am two trees away. How does that still work? :/

You're walking too fast.

Hold A and creep towards them, stopping every second.
