    Luminants in Attowha

    So, anyone else who actually gets these feathers (legally or not, I really don't care) try to get them since the last update?

    At least on Remora, the Luminant's not popping. In fact, it says it's up, at 100%, but untargetable. Isn't that just peachy?

    Can anyone give me any information on this from other servers? Trying to figure out wtf they did with it.

    They were always up at 100% so that's not new (even the ones not active.) They could have changed the spawn locations though, I have not changed since the last update though. If I find a reason to try it I'll look at them tonight on Siren.

    Yeah, but now they're showing as popped, but untargetable. Which is awesome. >.>;

    only person that I know personally that was able to get a feather was a Royale teammate of mine who had striders, crapton of powder boots and such and barely made it. I haven't seen him try after the update though

    They've definately changed something here; I haven't found any Luminants up either. I don't even know if holding onto crappy feathers helps anymore.

    I've done this with about 10 sets of powder boots before. Got a fire feather. Gave me Enfire which did about 9 damage. I've never tried it since. Too much effort, and the only thing worthwhile getting is the regain feather which may as well be impossible without POS.

    As for popped and untargetable... I haven't tried it again since the update, so I can't help you. Maybe you're looking in the wrong place since there are so many spawn points? I don't know if whatever program you are using shows the location too. =/

    Not sure what you mean by that, did the lower feathers supposedly increase the time or something?

    I can't speak to how variable this is, but I'd say the change from Regain to Rebirth feather is typically about 30 seconds from touching the lumiant. Anyone who claims they did that one with "a bunch of powder boots" is a damn liar.

    The lower ones I can believe, it took a long time for the stone to fade to these.

    Trust me.

    I know where they always can pop. And in all the spots, but two of them, they're popped. And untargetable. So... yeah.

    I was counting on these fucking things for my Maat fights, and now not being able to use them? Yeah, it sucks.

    There's always been about four points where they can be up. I've gotten them once or twice before, it's such a pain in the ass doing it legally. NIN/THF at night with an initial Mazurka was enough, depending on the position the Luminant was picked up at.

    Well in the order I recall, and the decay of the key item, it was like..

    1st decay, shining brilliantly = regain (something like 40s into it.. basically impossible by itself without cheating, though pos not needed '-' another subject/debate entirely..)
    2nd decay, shining brightly = rebirth (RR3)
    3rd decay = revive (RR1)
    4th decay = blaze (blaze spikes)
    5th decay = fire (enfire)
    6th decay = bb key item

    Getting up there before a complete decay entirely legit was possible, like a few have said, but ridiculously annoying. However, knowing how badass of a "free" (neglecting boots, hermes costs, whatever) med regain and rebirth are, it's probably justified.

    Now there are 3 key item feathers too that I never entirely figured out. Mimeo Feather, and then the second and the third. Successfully getting up there before the 6th decay will net you your awesome enfire. However, holding onto the enfire (rare/ex) on another run before the 6th decay has a chance (100%? smaller one?) to get you Mimeo feather key item, I'd guess. Lowering decay rate by obtaining up to the third mimeo feather and/or holding rare/ex of the feathers you don't want and therefore getting the next feather in the line.. was supposedly the theory to a 100% "legit" regain feather.

    As for Luminant locations, I'm pretty sure there are 5 spawns total.

    Mimeo feathers were from that CoP mission where you had to climb the Tor

    How would you get all 3 exactly? I remember the NM out there, and a single climb up.

    You just get 3 feathers, and due to the way key items work, they need to put it in 3 times to give 3 feathers.

    And tele hax. Unless there is a trick to make it last longer, it's impossible to get on top before the first thing wear off with powder boot or not. I've tried many time, and you will always get blocked by a black cloud, or luminant simply pop too far from entrance.

    Being tractored and raised seem to be the only way to get there that fast (unless you lose it on the first tractor)

    Tractoring counts as zoning and will cause you to lose the Mimeo Stone
