So, the past few days i have started doing Chult hunts for the transmutes and for the fun of it.
In Omu things are good.
In Soshenstar River, though, the Tyrannosaurs, the ones that drop the lure you need for all 1-star hunts, takes too low damage. Its like it has some permanent very high damage mitigation/resistance. Whenever i hit it there are blue numbers that you get when you are hitting someone with a shield. The dino's in Omu would take me a few seconds to kill. One of those things took me 4 minutes. And, mind you, while i am a tank, im 44-45k item level, i have decent damage. It shouldnt really take me that long to kill something in an area from 3 years ago.
Edit: Well the big guy definitely has his MoJo back. He's doable took maybe 2 minutes to solo went faster with some help.
You make a point though, 46k+ dps shouldnt have a problem killing anything quite fast. But, as you said, its not the same for everyone else.
The t-rex's seem to have to issues. One is that they have too much HP. The second is, when you are hitting him, there are many blue numbers popping up and, from what i know, blue numbers indicate that something is mitigating damage, either a shield or straight up damage mitigation. And the damage dealt, the yellow numbers, are much smaller than whta they would normally be.
For reference, i have only seen the blue numbers when something hits me when i block it with my shield, while i have a shield, when i have the Stalwart Golden Lion next to me, which offers 10% damage mitigation around it, or under the effect of one of Angel of Protection encounters, which gives 50% damage mitigation.

You can try to wait for somebody else or ask in zone if somebody farms them - thats more likely to happen than adjusting rex now.
For reference, everything that used to be tanky in Soshenstar is even worse now. I have a halfway decent toon hunting Hedetet and people thankfully helped me - not because it was impossible, but it took forever.
I kill T2/T3 hunts in Omu alone in 1/8 of the time. Not new, but very easy to see now.
e. It's easier to find people to hunt with than you might think - some people still try to fill their collection pages, some are bored, some have never done it and want to see it once - so to anybody that thinks that nobody cares about it just because it's old, you might find others if you try. If not, ask for help in zone, or in guild.
Its way easier than hoping some change is coming in whatever shape, when there is not even a statement out on the state of the game and how WAI it is.
*edit for hunting with people, not hunting people. no pvp
Lots of hits, really fast will knock them down from what I've seen. DoTs really help with this.
