These are cross-posted comments on a wiki page. You can visit the page here.  Read Wiki Page

It's worth noting that if you're going for particular pieces (IE rares such as plates, gems, rubies etc), you roll 3x (1 per carve) on a kill, and 1 time on a capture.
I've received a plate and a ruby from a single capture before
It's worth noting that capture is always better, the comment about carving being situationally better is misleading and likely cause of much confusion and spread of misinformation elsewhere.
Which monsters can you not capture I know you can capture elders but I don’t know which monster are elders
