Luck is a funny thing.
If this is true, I am thinking that 7 years in this game has caused me to lose my sense of humor. :X
I've been spending all my stones on farming murex mobs for spicules to turn in. I have so far obtained a single seal, and it was creed. Not a fan. I've got my double celerity going, but 2 stones a day just isn't enough. :(
I haven't even touched the flown the coop quest, or the bridges one...
Anyone have some tips on making that one faster? I've heard it's down to farming up spittle from those spiders..... oi. How bad are the spiders, or the drop rate from them?
Anyway, mostly was wondering if any of you have started working on the +2s and see any conceivable way for more casual players to get the items necessary, or if it's something that's going to end up being for endgame linkshells only?
Since I have spent a lot of time on the murex farming (I have been helping a blm do the medical supplies quest at the same time - man did they get ripped off on their seal quest.... makes ours seem easy), I thought I would throw in just a couple small tips.
If you haven't noticed or don't know, Murex mobs aggro JAs and WSs at night time. Specifically, that would be 18:00-6:00, or 6-6. So half the day they will aggro to those, be very aware of that... they go down so much faster when you do use JAs on them, I wish they wouldn't aggro, but what can you do.
Secondly, if you have spent any time in bastion at all (I did, early on), you will likely have amassed a fair amount of resistance credits. Those things are seriously easy to come by. Even after getting my mavi legs and buying tons and tons of temp items, I had like 10k left.
The good thing is, the prefect sells temporary items that are extremely potent. Lucid potion/ether IIIs, Lucid elixir IIs, AOE TP wings, mana/healing mists, fanatic's and fool's drinks, monarch's drinks, etc.
There are 2 good murex camps. One is near the start of the zone, and the other is at conflux 3, right outside the tunnel area. Both are within a stone's throw of that prefect npc. So, to speed things up, I like to load up on temp items, and blitz the **** out of the murex camp I am in, using temp items and MP drainkiss to refill mp in lieu of resting at all. When I am out of temp items, I just warp/run back to the prefect and load up again. Honestly, it's much faster than healing, in my experience, and really doesn't take much away from your credits if you have a fair amount.
Just a couple thoughts. Good luck. Edited, Sep 25th 2010 9:28pm by AmanoJ
