Finally taking thf from 37 to 75 that is XD

I guess I have no reason not to...already have 8 dagger merits (from dnc) capped marks with 8 merits (from rng) and a ton of gear that will help me get there (rapp, SH+1, azoth/adder till i get blau/sirocco, P helm, and the list goes on) But what I do question are daggers...specifically the ones I should be using until I get to the level to equip blau/sir. I will note that I don't intend to be level syncing at all, or as very little as possible, (although staying in east ronfaure [s] is tempting) so will be upgrading to the best ones as much as possible while I level (or as practical as possible). Here is what I intend to do so any corrections/suggestions are most welcome ^^

37: Federation kukri X2

40: Marauders*?* / Fed kukri

46: bone knife +1 X2

48: BK+1 / hornetneedle

50: Corsairs / hornet

54: dst jambiya +1 *?* / hornet

65: garudas *?* / hornet *?*

66: unlocked odorous +1 *?* / hornet *?*

68: harpe *?* / no clue at this point

69: harpe *?* / sirocco

70: bk+1 / sirocco

72: obvious at this point

I think I have a pretty decent idea of what to use when, but from 50 to 72 I'm a bit iffy on, especially for how long to offhand hornetneedle...

I'd go Harpe/Hharpe @68. Alternatyively Harpe/iking Shield, /War.

I think i would main hand bone +1 -> corsairs -> chicken. after chicken and before harpes idk. But yeah, DW harpes (or h harpes), replace with SK when you can.

Kinda in a similar situation myself (THF now at 47 yay bravo's!) with regards to daggers.

I'll be headed home after work to farm for the hornetneedle. Any idea what the drop rate is like for the bee larvae? and does TH effect it? (I assume it does) and lastly I assume 75nin can handle Death from Above with ease?

I remember my drop rate is best described as "how I learned to solo in eight easy levels," but I know many who had much better luck than I had. It's a low drop rate, but there's usually no competition at all so it really shouldn't be too terrible.

As for Death From Above, you could probably solo it as a Ninja, yeah. Just be aware that he is extremely fast with attacks so make sure you hit him with blind and paralyze and you should be good.
