Good luck or better drop rate?

Went 1/3 on Pursuer without TH during a new moon.

Got another after 23 more kills. First fight with Sozu didn't go so well (focused too much on bolts) but on the second fight i pwned him.

Hey guys just wanted to share info about how I got my thf knife.

Well my good 75THF friend Venace who was previously 0/18 on the knife logged on and within two hours got his flickering lantern to drop. Went to go fight Sozu and he had his long coveted TK!

So then I logged on and told him how cool would it be if I could get one for the thf job that I am currently leveling? He laughs and says hey lets try try my new knife out.

Well 163 tonberries later flickering lantern drops!

So we made our way over to Sozu, popped him and there goes my thf knife. Only 20 more lvls to use but I now have one waiting for me.

The only rush for the Knife for me was thinking SE was going to realize they made a mistake with 100% drop rate and do some emergency maintinence to change it.

I will tell you guys that we did it behind the Prelate key door, where there is four tonberry pops, and where most of the people on our server have no idea how to get behind unless they have a key on them. It's quite easy magic aggro the pot by the door and the door opens for you. For about four hours we had this entire area to ourselves killing all the pursuers. It sure beat the 50 people camping the one pop at the Sozu camp.

In closing I just want let you know to get behind that prelate door, there is plenty of killing opportunity behind that door. Second, the drop rate is pretty crappy, but at least there are more opportunities than one Sozu.

Good luck guys!

So far this drop hasnt given me to much cause for concern its just claims that are rough, does anyone know if the pursuers behind the prelate door also drop this?. there are about 6 thf berrys on the sozu side of the temple and ive camped about 5hours now and claimed 3 thf berrys no lantern. i was 0/157 on sozu before the update, so i hope the lantern isnt as bad. ppl are already making up bogus drop rates like 1% on caitsith but even if the lantern drop was as bad as knife drop b4 update pursuers pop every 16mins and they all over the place. sozu ******* berry used to take his sweet *** time and you still have to beat everyone else in the room lol. anyone on caitsith interested in getting knife with me gimme a shout cuz everyone is just botting the pursuers now. one man stands so little chance as i see 5-10people camping every thf berry pop spot and a few runners running back and forth between stuff. dont forget your tonko tools cuz youll need em running back and forth. bronze seems to be causing trouble to dont go afk in a bad spot lol. ~zarcakez

I would be happy to camp with ya, so long as we see it thru until we both get item. I think i saw you there this morning actually. I have killed about 10-12 pursuers, but no drop yet. I am a decent claim for a THF, but having a voke really makes things better. Shoot me a tell, and we will hook it up.

incredibly bad luck? or am i missing something...

If people begin to wonder who's rating down posts in this thread, I'm doing it.

Because if someone does find what drops it before I do, and posts it, I don't want to read all your crap to find it.

I hope the karma system is working.

Instead of begging others, at least put some ideas forth.

My idea is that maybe that Tonberry's with the THF job have a chance of dropping it. No reference, but something people can try. I might try this later if I have time.
$$$ drop?
# Mar 07 2007 at 4:25 PM Rating: Decent
I can only hope the this lantern isnt one of those hard to get items or ppl will the selling it in bazaar for some good $$$.
Would be great to solo this drop then go solo Sozu <^.->
$$$ drop?
