In Topic: Where can you get exotic drops?

27 November 2012 - 02:56 PM

400 hours in, countless dungeons and dragons defeated, and I've gotten a single orange drop from a mad king chest at Halloween.

If you want exotics, the best way to farm them is to map-complete high level zones.

3. Ecto's are plummeting in price...



The funny thing is, that whole post is just as bad, it's simply more effort to do the point by point.

I ran enough fractals for my monthly. I kinda liked em, and wouldn't mind running a few more until I'd seen all the dungeons. However, fundamentally, I'm not playing a geargrind game, and am just coasting on the box I already purchased until my friends move back to tanks or mechs or whatever's next.

Its fine to complain about all this stuff (and I have), but its really hard dividing out my dollars spent, by my hours played, and not feeling pretty good about it.

There is absolutely no reason to believe Anet plans to add another tier between Ascended and Legendary at this point.

That isn't true, they did it once, and they said the wouldn't do it again for "at least 3 months". Like it or not, that's the record at this point.  We can't impute too much into what that statement meant, but it was laid out in black and white.

I kinda don't care if ascended represents "the final tier" as it's 1 too many, personally.

I haven't found a good replacement for plinx (*) in terms of events (either getting your quick daily in, or event karma), but what you can do is run down the shore to check for plinx, then break east, grab tar elementals, and keep running east to clear any of the forts that are being held.  There is a great little "collect fish bellies" DE down south of the tar elementals, that as long as no one turns in the "fish bellies", you can spam create a ton of creatures, and group farm them fairly effectively.  Only takes one tard to ruin the DE though.

Penetant is still worth a few, and has nice waves, if you can get your tags in before the elementalists.  This has been pretty easy lately with all the people in the mists dungeon, but I'm guessing it gets bad again soonish (after the weekend).

(*) Seriously, anet can bite me for that nerf.

I really, really, hope not. Legendaries are not supposed to be easy.

This is really just about precursors, not legendaries.  The amount of grind in a legendary will still be plenty, I assure you.
