Colorless souls. how did you complete this portion of the trial? Did you get a lot of help from LS mates building T3 pops? Do 2 souls drop often? is their a quick way to build T3 pops?

Iron plates dropped 1 at time for me all but 2xs.

1) Get a T1 abyssite
2) Realize that fighting T1 VNMs in Heroes zones sucks, but you should probably get in the habit of doing it anyway unless you're cool with swapping zones over and over just to get your T1 upgrade
3) Get a T2 abyssite
4) Find a bunch of heehaws in far greater numbers than you whoring the T2 for seals
5) Ask them to let you pop the NM for T2 upgrade / ask if you can have their unwanted T3 abyssite, making sure to mention that you don't want any seals
6) Still don't get any response
7) RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE
8) ???
9) Not profit

As for drop rates on plates and souls, I would assume TH is the only likely thing to influence it, if anything.

I'm probably behind you as far as trial goes. 36/50 on the iron plate section right now.

As far as colorless souls.. i've seen people pay a TON of money for a VNM set. It seems like something you'd need an LS for in order to spam consistently.

Can probably get people who are bored enough to go after some of the atmas id imagine, you just won't be getting the /tell spam that monk, nin and sam body seals bring to the table.

27/50 on iron plates so far.

7/75 on souls at this point. 2 out 5 kills dropped 2x souls. So i'm liking the chances of 2 souls dropping more than the iron plates.

so far my ls has been very supportive of trying to build T3 pops for me.

popped 19 t3's this weekend 1 in Altepa and 18 in Grauberg. Not paying attention we popped the Altepa one on Fireday. >< Still got the win.

We lost one fight to the Maere one time. You truely need 2 jobs with healing. Keep one at a far distance incase of the 1st healer gets hit with Nightmare. If everyone with healing gets hit with nightmare it is pretty much going to be a wipe.

but we got 37 colorless souls on 19 pops

only need 30 to finish this stage of the trial!

LFor plates the giant in grauberg has like half the hp,if that, of the other two giants. Mnk and whm make farming trigs and killing it a joke. If u had someone cap ur azure u could knock it out in two reasonable sessions.

As for the **** that is soul farming, I pray u have awesome friends. VNM convert rates are retarded. Before the "increased" t1 rate I never went more than 10 or 15, after, 1/49 1/51 1/34 1/39 1/35 1/29 1/3 and 1/22. That said, my two friends that helped never went worse than 1/5 on t1 and 1/1 on every t2 lol.

Drop rate increase on souls, however, was quite large. I farmed 30 souls pre-update. 3/6 ogo's 1/4 maeres and 2/14 brulos dropped 2. Post update 0/2 on ogo 6/6 on brulo and 13/18 maeres dropped 2.

As for killing em, ogo is a pushover. Use its atma and barwater. Brulo is the same deal pretty much, except I've been one-shotted by flaming crush with counterstance up, think it did 4200. Maere, on the other hand, is a flat out ****. I probably lost 15 pops, all in the 1st 30 secs. Best strat we figured out was an outside healer. After we dropped a healer outside, not once in 30 kills or so did they get drawn in.

Hope this helps!

Nice outside healer... never even thought of doing that. will have to try that this weekend.

Ogo is over camped on our server but I def agree it is a push over.
Maere seemed to have no one popping it and people even willing to give me their T3 pop for free in that zone.

Yea that's the main reason I only killed ogo the few times. I had 2 pops from before VNMs got big, few friends had some pops and i bought one pop(only pop i bought surprisingly). After the increase to soul drop rate Altepa became fairly crowded too. Grauberg for the most part stayed empty, assuming cause maere is such a pain. Healer outside party worked awesome, but make sure ur mage still stays 20ish away cause nightmare can still hit them.

Maere can use Draw-In on anyone who has hate whether they're in the party or not. Bring 2 healers.

T1 convert rate is still being tested on the test server, it hasn't yet been implemented onto main servers. My record so far on T1s is 0/55 in konscht, moved to tahrongi and went 1/12, so 1/67 in total, lol.
