For those who still have no idea how Leve NMs work.. here's how
1) Obtain the 1st tier quest from the counter. (100 fraction pts)
2) Complete 1st tier quest
3) Obtain 2nd tier quest from counter. (100 fraction pts)
4) Complete 2nd tier quest
5) Obtain 3rd and final tier quest from counter. (400 fraction pts)
6) Go kill your NM and HOPE TO GET THE RUNESTONE.
Yes that's right... Runestone drops from the final Leve NM IS NOT GURANTEED
WTF SE? I spent 600 of my hard earned fraction pts on a **** NM and you wont even guarantee me, the quest starter 1 piece of equipment? Thanks for spoiling my holiday mood!
Our party of 13 LV 50s took down Tarbh Uisge in Bloodshore. We did not leve link.
Out of 4 tries, only 2 got the Runestone. And both were the quest starters.
Special damage like causing the bull to drop on it stomach didnt seem to affect the drop rate for the runestone.
And also after obtaining the runestone, its NOT a one to one exchange.
You need mythril rings and electrum rings in addition to the runestone..
I'm so ****** that the effort and faction pts spent was wasted..
We're here to play and enjoy the game. Make it simple, let us have our rewards, and move on with life.
Is that so hard to ask for SE? Why do you have to keep making things difficult for us players?
On your lodestone website pertaining to Tarbh Uisge, it says "Those who are successful in slaying Tarbh Uisge will be rewarded with a special item known as an Allagan runestone."
You might wanna change 'WILL' to 'MIGHT" please!
Leves reset today and I noticed that 1st two tiers (both 100 pts) showed up on my faction leve.
I do not have enough points (400 pts) to cause the 3rd tier to show up but I assume that once
400 points have been gathered that one can proceed directly to 3rd tier NM quest without going through 1st and 2nd.
Basically, once you have completed all 3 tiers of the NM leve, you MIGHT only need to spend 400 faction pts to directly engage the NM instead of going through all 3 tiers as previously thought.
Worth mentioning is the Special Mission under 'The Horn and Hand'. It is a total waste of fraction pts.
1st tier quest is 100 pts and takes you on a treasure hunt in Tranquil.
2nd tier quest is 100 pts and takes you on a retarded NPC follow quest in Horizon.
3rd tier quest is 250 pts and takes you on an equally retarded NPC follow quest in Mun Tey cellars.
I had 575 points left after 3rd tier completion, and do not see new quests updated. Unless the 4th tier is 600 pts and above, I would assume SE catered this leve for crafters/miners.
