    Comment on Wyrm loot

    Personally, I think SE royally fucked up coding tiamat.

    Vrtra is pretty much guaranteed Manteel (some people say that its possible that it wont drop enough ingreds, I've never seen this), but its the biggest hassle of them all to kill.

    Jormungand is guaranteed 4 moly ores per kill, that's good for four Corazzas, yet only drg's bother with them, because war's have better shit to buy. How many endgame drg's are there ?? 0. Not to mention getting to Jormungand isnt really a walk in the park, with those annoying TS mobs.


    And then theres Tiamat. With the best loot, relative ease to kill and easy to access, the loot isnt guaranteed. My past two Tiamat kills went like this:

    Tiamat falls to the ground.
    You find a Fire Crystal on Tiamat.

    and

    Tiamat falls to the ground.
    You find a Fire Crystal on Tiamat.
    You find a Fire Crystal on Tiamat.

    that 2nd time was with TH3 in too.



    So SE makes this wyrm that everyone wants to farm, yet its on a 3-8 day respawn, and theres nothing guaranteed in drops, whereas there are two other wyrms, with guaranteed drops, that are either: shitty drops, require a huge alliance to kill.


    gg SE.

    I think we've gotten crystals once too (I THINK, I wasn't there). The 1st time we killed it, we only got wyrm horn. XD

    Getting to Jorm is easy if your LS isn't full of morons and such.

    This would be alot better if Vrtra dropped Gaiters 100% and Tiamat just dropped Kote and that other crap.

    Yea, absolutely nothing
    All the 75 DRGs I know like to keep the fact that their first job was DRG a secret :X

  16. #16

    lol no secret, i wanted to be a drg from the start, but when i unlocked brd i dunno what got me into it and i was 75 in no time lol, then i wanted to make some gil and experience some end game stuff, now i have little time to play, so my drg still 64, but yeah if i get it to 75 i'll take it to some end game stuff and get screenshots for ppl X)

    What you need for timmy(Tiamat) is an Ayer. He's our TH3, and we're 8/8 on gaiters when he's there, when he isn't we've never gotten gaiters =p

    I think SE did it on purpose because as you said, it would be the only one people are more likely to farm. Tiamat has been in existance for quite some time now so I'm sure if they messed up on him, they'd have fixed it by now. The others are there for challenge I suppose or perhaps another one of SE's jokes like Guivre. I dunno~

    The first 5 kills of Tiamat by my LS all dropped Herald Gaiters as posted here:
    http://www.theorderls.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3124

    Currently we have 8 herald gaiters out of 14 kills. I think only once we only got Oxblood and that was when we had no THF. I don't think we've had "fire crystal x2" only drop yet.

    Keep at it and it seems likely your drops should be better eventually.

    Edit: See havoc's post above
    Edit2: 14 kills

    My LS has killed Tiamat twice, and both times we got nothing but a Fire Crystal. Really makes us not wanna go back, but I guess we will. (One time was with TH3). Still, I'm pretty hardcore believer that TH needs to be in the PT that kills the mob (i.e. Tiamat has to appear red to the THF when Tiamat dies) for TH to work, so you might try that.
