I’ve recently taken interest in drop research (after reading certain posts and having some conversations with Red Fireball) and decided to do some q8 weapon farming. I know most of you do chest runs to obtain q8s but I was thinking of trying some good ol’ farming (i.e. actual foe killing). I have already tried farming Vermin outside Senji’s Corner with not much luck. Vermin are level 18 in NM and although within the range that can possibly drop max q8s, they are on the low end of that range, making such drops very unlikely. After consulting Red about it, I am now in search of locations with level 20 foes (NM) in order to give it a go, as these have the highest chances (which are still small) of dropping max q8 weaps... In addition, since swords, shields and offhands are the only weapons that can still drop in q8, I was thinking of trying mostly warrior foes which have generally higher chances of dropping the first 2.
Here’s what I got on my list so far:
- Jade brotherhood knights outside Marketplace
- Minotaurs in Elona Reach mission
If you got any other ideas regarding locations with level 20 foes (preferably warriors) that I could try, or any other insight on this, please let me know
