I'm going to settle this;

Cluster Core is obtained the following ways:

Dropped from Mobs:

* Cluster (Lufaise Meadows) (Level: 38-40)
* Atomic Cluster (Lufaise Meadows) (Level: 44-46)
* Atomic Cluster (Misareaux Coast) (Level: 44-46)
* Odqan (Misareaux Coast) (Level: 50-51)
* Nitro Cluster (Riverne - Site #B01) (Level: 56-58)

Stolen from Mobs:

* Cluster (Lufaise Meadows) (Level: 38-40)
* Atomic Cluster (Lufaise Meadows) (Level: 44-46)
* Atomic Cluster (Misareaux Coast) (Level: 44-46)
* Atomic Cluster (Riverne - Site #A01) (Level: 46-48)
* Nitro Cluster (Riverne - Site #B01) (Level: 56-58)


For those who don't know, foggy weather is from 3:00-6:00 and just after every day. Sometimes (however), it may not be foggy at all, in which case, you will see no clusters.

As to the use of this salt - I am still stumped. I solo summoner in Uleguerand Range and I'm hoping this salt will maybe help make the bombs explode sooner (meaning faster exp chains for me).

Someone mentioned above that it extends your time for a certain BC - could be!

It is. It's for a CoP mission BCNM, where you fight a Snoll. The battle works exactly like the time bomb BCNM. Using the salt in that BCNM temporarily stops the bomb's self destruct timer.

I got five of these the other day off different Clusters, and Atomic Clusters in Lufuiase Meadows. I there is one spawn per open area in Lufuase. Everyone cluster I fought dropped one of these. I even stole a cluster from an atomic cluster and then got another one to drop after killing it. It was definately foggy weather (3-7?).

This quest is for salt that adds time to the 45second you have to kill snoll tzar in the BC for CoP Mission 5-3-3. It adds 15seconds to it before it explodes. The goal of this BC is to do 9000dmg to it within the 45seconds. So adding this salt you get for trading the cluster cores is ideal.

LOL why doesnt anyone read the **** post, I believe someone stated that they drop off Atomis Bombs (think thats thier name) and Odqan...both spawn between 3-7 vanadiel time...You need to either be a rng or sub rng and widescan for the mobs once its in the timeframe...Also they only spawn on days when its is foggy, which means there will be a purple hue in the sky. I think if I remember the hue comes around the 20's timewise then dissapears around 1 or so. Then after that you need to wait till the timeframe I already mentioned and scan for the mobs.

Saw a "Cluster" on the beach in Lufaise Meadows and couldn't help myself. After killing said Cluster i recieved a Cluster Core, which I came here to see what it does. It is not rare/ex (maybe changed in this patch), however I can not put it up on AH or send to a mule (I guess they didn't fix complete remove the rare/ex flag).

there is a couple of items that arent rare/ex or just rare that cant be put on the AH, i guess that Cluster Cores arent meant to be put on the AH and only sold through Bazaar if you want to sell it.
same goes for the Quadav Augury Shell (sp) for "The Magicte" Mission and a lot more items.

He only wants 2 Cluster Cores. I traded 2 and still received the salt.

However, I can't confirm the use of the Salt though, but since it's Rare/EX, I intend to hang onto it :)

In Uleguerand Range, after going down the first slope, head to the northwest corner of the field where you find the cave. At the first left branch, there is an NPC orc named Buffalostalker Dodzbraz. Bring him 4 Cluster Cores to receive the Shu-Meyu Salt. Cluster Cores are dropped from Atomic Clusters or Odqan. They spawn at Riverne Sites, Misareaux Coast, or Lufaise Meadows. However, since Riverne has a level cap, they are not advisable. Atomic Clusters spawn at Misareaux/Lufaise during 0300-0700 when the skies are foggy. Foggy skies have a high percentage of happening when there is no elemental weather going on.

The Shu-Meyu Salt is best used during the CoP Bomb BC fight. The salt can prevent the bomb from expanding for 30 seconds.

Well I read somewhere on the forums that there is a BCNM battle at bear claw pinnacle against a NM bomb. I also read that you can use an item to increase the time limit of the fight, maybe this is that item.

So I finally gathered 4 cluster cores from the clusters and atomic clusters at both Misareaux Coast and Lufaise Meadows near Tavnazia. The bomb clusters only appeared during some mornings in foggy weather.

After giving the Orc the 4 cluster cores, he gave me a rare/ex item called "shu'meyo salt" which he said I could "use" it on the snolls and melt them.

So I decided to try it out, I used it on a snoll, and the snoll then started to attack me, with no sign of it's HP depleting or any sign of it melting what-so-ever. After i killed the Snoll (with a pet, im a BST) I went back to the Orc and he just asked for 4 bomb clusters again. Repeatable quest :/

Like all bombs, they pop in foggy weather.

It's not an elemental cluster... its a Cluster Core. Icon looks like a bomb core and its EX and stackable.

I just killed one in Misareaux Coast, just outside the northern entrance of safehold on the hill in middle of J-8.

I am somewhat surprised that you have hero rank fame and absolutely no information gathering skills outside of this website ; ;) But, the reason why you cant get the port sandoria quest is that you first need to read the fourth page in the Diary in southern sandoria, and only then will the NPC in the port at the bar give you the quest.

Please stop spreading missinformation, Clusters DROP CLUSTER CORES, they are a mob found in Lufaise Meadow(Supposedly) And Riverne, the worst thing is those of you that have been saying this ******** have gone by information only, Snolls do not drop them its a fact, and clusters do, go to mob lookup and search for clusters....sigh...so many morons.
No....

No, clusters drop from clusters, he will give you an item to kill snolls with when he gets the clusters, the map quest is different. Please look up info before saying things that are untrue. Does anyone know where in the meadows they pop, if even at all, I cant find anywhere.

Well if he despises snolls, they probably drop from snolls? Snolls are located in the Uleguard (sp) Range located off of Xarcabard.
RE: Snollls
# Mar 09 2006 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
cluster cores do not drop of snolls never have and never will.
he despises snolls so he will give you an item that will help kill the CoP BCNM snoll by extending the self destruct timer
Clusters...Where??

I'm going to post this here since my post under the Cluster mob has gone unanwserd. This site says they pop in Lufaise, but where, does anyone know? I've searched every corner of that place for hours; even the level 75+ areas, and I cant find a single one.
