    heavy metal plates

    so im trying to upgrade my masamune, was curious what everyone else was doing to farm these up, i realize its meant to be a time sink, but after spamming aello last night i ended up with one pouch with 10 plates after 40 kills, i feel like i could be doing better

    Like extra accounts. This content was designed with droprates based around the assumption of up to 18 personal drops. And SE has remained adamant about that so doing just 1 character is pretty poor. And yeah trying to get a proc or 2 is good unless it's during campaign and you already capped

    Most people that farm them wait till campaigns and have multiple characters and even then a lot of times group up. Most others buy them or get them from ambuscade for efficiencies sake

    Um what? Are you sure you don't mean single? Because according to the ah the lowest median server price is 65k a single with the highest being 80k

    My fail. I just looked at the front page of ffxiah.com. To my credit, it does say Plate Of Heavy Metal X99 79,000. So I read that as 79k per 99.

    just a note, the front page of ffxiah.com always shows the price of the SINGLE, even when showing the stack listed. Not sure why it does that, but good to remember to click the actual item before you think you're gonna find a great deal when you get off work and get home!

    I just bought all my heavy metal plates, as farming them yourself is very inefficient except for maybe during campaign.

    I mean sure but it still sucks and there is absolute zero reason to do 3k riftcinder trials. Hell there is literally only 1 reason to do the 3k riftdross trial and it's still mostly pointless and terrible (read I'm totally 1k into it)

    Pretty much this I've tried farming without the campaign up and it is a waste of time.

    Except the developers themselves said lights beyond 150% red (1 cell) to unlock the plate slot have no further effect on drop rate the campaign is just a placebo effect if you want plates, if anything more red will mean more "high quality" drops replacing the metal slot which is shared (junk armor/weapons you don't want)
