    Loaded Hydras? Wtf...

    In Dynamis Beaucedine last night we had a Hydra Blm drop 7 Whiteshells at once. I have *never* seen a mob in Dynamis drop that much before, ever. Has anyone else ever seen this?

    I'll see if anyone took a SS of this from our run last night, I print screened mine since I don't use fraps & then forgot to copy it somewhere to save.

    Seriously though, am I missing something or is that an absolute crazy occurence?

    I've seen one drop 2 of each currency before, for 6 total. I didn't know it could go as high as 7, but I'm not shocked considering you can get 4 sometimes off normal mobs.

    I seriously thought we had warped into Limbus for a moment & someone had popped a gold chest.

    Highest I saw from a Hydra was 5. But 7? Damn..

    Too bad they still suck fo farming.

    Because Hydras can drop multiple types of currency at once, I think this is possible.

    I've definately seen drops of like, 3x whiteshell 3x byne. So getting a 4x and 3x at the same time could result in a drop of 7. (or 2 + 2 + 3, etc)

    Yeah we weren't farming them, we were just clearing a few pulls out of the way for our Attestation strike team.

    I have a pic at home, but it was 7 of the same currency. All of them were byne bills I think.

    Hydras do indeed have bigger loot tables than normal mobs, which is where the "omg hydras give more AF" rumor came from.

    7 is the most i've heared of, 5 is the most i've personally seen.

    I'm just not a fan of farming them, they're a hassle to fight, the TE's for them are a pain in the ass to get to, they can't be slept, just better things to do with farming time in my opinion.

    It's bound to be said eventually. It's the nature of the internet.
