Is it a bug or design that sharks drop no energy while hitting them down. Every other monster of which I am aware drops 1 energy every few hits due to the tavernum (spelling?) quests. The sharks should only take maybe 8 energy each, but take 10 because I do not get the energy drops. I get 2 on kills, rarely 3. The critical hits that drop 2 health are uncommon, but seem about right for the larger monsters; I assume early-game monsters have a higher chance to be critically hit.
I apologize if this was mentioned earlier, but I did not see it in the 20+ pages I have read.
Edit: suddenly, Thursday, as in 7 days into event, I am getting energy from shark hits. Very positive change!
