wow. RNG is being very very stingy on this thing. trying get the 5th dorcha crystal for the quest and i just ran 20 barri basic runs opening all dead end chests and not a single crystal dropped.

seriously this is so stupid. theyve shouldve gone with the system where you can run easy content for a chance of the crystal dropping or harder content for a guaranteed drop. at this rate this is just stupid.

    Well, at least RNG was nice to you with the 5m drop in festia's gacha, so if you really need it and get bored of running, you can just buy it :D

    I really do wonder how much they cost lol, 300 bait and yesterdays lord runs and like 120 hornets no 3rd or 6th crystal for me . Makes you wonder how the low the drop rate is.

    It's very random, I wasn't even looking for them and got two 2nd crystal drops from 3 ancient foxes that crossed my path when I was questing for something else while I saw a guildie hunt for that very same crystal for a couple of hours and get nothing x_x

    At least you can AFK for the fishing one, which is what I did for three hours for mine. All of the others are just stupid. It's like Korea wants people to bot script their game anymore.

    It may be nothing but it may help. I always like to run Math because of the Fine leather drops. I ran Math basic for my 5th crystal and opened the first end chest and got it. I told a friend and the first time they ran she got it. She had been running all day. May be just luck... who knows

    Who the heck even thought of putting two of the crystals for a skill quest on SHARED mobs in open areas in very limited numbers for an entire damn server? AND made them tradable, so that people could constantly farm and monopolize said mobs? Which barely sentient being did they pick to come up with this idea? I do not understand.

    EDIT: and don't even get me started on the CP problem with the droprate. I''ve got next to everything maxed. Come on?

    i just hate Fetch quests tied to unlocking skills in general. its annoying trying to get get 6 items and all but 5 of them rely on pure RNG to be nice to you. thankfully i only need 2 and 5. but 5 is being a total pain to get.

    unlocking skills should require some sort of Excuse the pun...skill.

    also theirs like 6 or 7 different people on the Tarlach server trying to buy the 5th Dorcha crystal.

    This is one of the rare occasion that Alexina being the server with the highest population is a disadvantage. All channels has at least 2 players hunting hornets at Silva.. and ancients is nowhere to be found. I want to use the monster drop boost but to do that I need to find ancient monsters first ;_; Just hope I can find some when american players are sleeping

    try going to Tir Na Nog. since that place is almost eclusivly used for G1. most of the time theirs 3 ancients down south of the square, graveyard and path to Albey.
    and then CC when you take them all out. thats how i got mine as there were like 2-3 ancients per channel and i got it on my third channel run.

    I got the 6th crystal using a dream catcher, killing the hornet in self-dense unintentionally. I thought I could collect it or transform into one.
    I guess RNG is working regardless.

    Edit: wrong thread was meant for Dorcha crystals

    I think he meants the one with tons of herb patches.

    I didn’t go there because it takes too long to map out the whole area and if I found that there’s no ancients after all that effort I don’t think my heart can take it. Although if all else fails I guess I’ll go there then lol

    ya im at the point where im about to give up. over 100 dead end chests opened and no crystal. this is absolutely insane and incredibly boring. who in their right mind thought it would be a good idea to make this thing so incredibly rare? most of my drops are gold and when i do get extra stuff its just 5-6 Stamina 100 potions. if this was a crafting part for the new Celtic chain blade id understand the rareity. but a necessary fetch item for a Skill quest? Come on.

    Everyone seems to be forgetting how tedious Shock pages were or AR8/FB10. This isnt new and the fact that its a new skill means a lot of people are going to be hunting. The only concerning thing to me is the 5th crystal because of the singular area of the mob that drops it. Very stupid on Nexon’s part to make it drop from an enemy found in one spot that and only from them.
