    Do the NMs in Dyna-Xarc have a confirmed higher drop rate on their respective relic piece or is that all myth? I've heard mixed reports over the years, so just curious.

    From locked thread.

    So I am trying to help my friend get the Serpentes sabots from the Brooder. I havn't done much VNM so not sure how this works. What I want to know.. I already have tried it once and my abbyssite upgraded to T3. If I go back and get a T1, convert it to a T2, will it never be able to turn into a T3?
    I believe so.

    Yes, but you can't track Brooder if you have the T3 pop.

    Yes you can. Resonates softly=Brooder, Solidly=Ruminator, Feebly= T1. T2 and T3 have fairly static pop/roam locations so it's not hard at all to find them unless you have some constant competition.

    Have you done Dyna-Xarc? The NMs each drop their own piece, never any other piece. The droprate isn't notably higher than a random mob, the piece is just isolated. IE: Normal mob has a 10% chance of dropping a piece. If that piece drops, there's a 1/20 chance it's RDM. That gives you a net droprate of 1/200 or 0.5%. Duke Berith has a 10% chance of dropping a piece. If that piece drops, it's RDM. That gives you a net droprate of 10%.

    I hope this made it clear, 10% is not the actual droprate, only used for illustration.

    Ok, need to work on a gun for COR, was looking at STR, AGI, MAB, STP guns. Which would be the best to go? I do DD on COR so I was thinking maybe a DD type gun AND a MAB gun.

    Don't feel like walking up there to double-check, but I'm pretty sure there are 11 at the camp just inside the zone.

    However you can't tell if it's up without searching the zone for it.

    Something like this, but to throw out an exact number, iirc there's 13.

    What to do for THF Merits. Triple Attack is a given, as is 5 Feint. What else is the most common. I was thinking one in Aura Steal, because random dispel is nice, and 4 assassin's charge.

    Also, for RNG merits, I was thinking 5 snapshot, 5 flashy shot, and 5 rapid shot, but torn on the last 5 for tier one merits. I was thinking unlimited shot, so I could keep sharpshot and barrage on the same timer.

    Thoughts?

    From the locked thread:

    2 sam/dnc vs. Promathia, doable?

    I'm heavily merited/decent gear, the other is an AH sam.
    To answer my own question, it's probably doable with 2 well geared/merited sams. Attempted to solo for shits and giggles, got the 2nd form down to 70% before I ran out of juice and Prishe died. Still had 2hr, but that wouldn't have been enough to finish it.

    When I had a T2 and T3 abyssite, I killed brooder next to a conflux and used apradar to check whether the dead body was still there or not. Otherwise it's difficult to tell when brooder respawns.

    Won't Apradar always show you that the corpse is still there until you stumble across the live spawned copy?
