Party Drop?
# Jun 16 2009 at 4:47 PM Rating: Decent
I think this Drop is based on the number of people in your party. I went with a group of 6 and went 1/32. I tried duoing with one of my friends and went 2/13. Then i tried soloing and went 1/2. Idk if this is true, but i think that maybe TH1 while soloing may be the best way to farm these
some info for those who need it

In my endless quest over the past few weeks for Swift belt, I have learned many things.
1. The codex drop rate is very random. You can get it instantly or go a whole day of farming and not get one.
2. The NMs can be duo'd and even soloed though I prefer duo. This is normally done with bsts by Familaring the Blubber Eyes that hang out at the 2 corners at the far east end.
3. If you get the message "You're Heart is Racing" when you check the stale draft this means you need 1-35 more fomors killed for enough hate
4. The best place for gaining hate is by going out into the Coast and killing the fomors that spawn from 20:00-4:00
5. The whole process can be very frustrating. We got my best friend's belt to drop the first fight, and its been about 13 more since then and still haven't got mine.

Hope this helps you aspiring Swift Belt owners.
lucky bastard

Drop rate for these is just bizarre. I had solo farmed regular Taurus for them in the Aqueducts on 2 separate occasions previously with no drop, maybe 0 for 30-40 kills before giving up. Even tried farming the stegs with an oilspill in a BST+RDM duo and still no drop, pretty fun though.

Then last night while I was waiting for a party to form while taking a friend through CoP2-3, I started farming these again with a couple pals, BST+MNK+RDM. We got one first kill, and another after three or four more kills, go figure. No idea why except that it was lightsday and a full moon?

SE designers sure have a weird sense of humor.

My party went to the aqueducts with NIN BLU THF WHM and we're 0/18 so far on the codex drops. We fought botht he DC- and VT== Stegotaurs. Pretty sad drop rate considering the codex might not even get me the belt.

Drop Rate and Fomor Hate
# Jan 22 2006 at 2:14 PM Rating: Decent
Fomor Codex: Have spent the past few days in this lvl 50 Hell...Here is what i came about. After 35 kills of Stegotaur rates are : Fomor Codex 2, Mortal Ray 7 (i hope you know what i am talking about - and yes it can be dropped with Holy waters or simply turning away), Beastseal 5 and got roughly 1400 xp...I never actually imo lost to one of these but of course that doesnt count Mijin Gakure so thats 35 wins 0 losses as a 50 nin vs these things solo...just bring the tools easy buggers

Fomor Hate: I have probably killed just as many of the Fomors as any one in any server...Current have JSE for NIN, RNG, RDM and WAR. have spent many times in the ducts farming these for myself and friends...and we killed probably another 25-30 waiting for people to finish the Secrets of Worship...Granted i have also killed many a beastman in Meadows and Coast...i can safely sneak past the Fomors with the spell and oils...so what is the hate lvl? i have no clue all i know is the Priest that supposely gives fomor hate lvl said darkness surrounds me and prayed for my life...guess thats not a good thing maybe its just me...

Last thought if you havent read, heard or seen yet...the maze in this hell will change every game day...Hope Some of this helps and good luck ^.^

i was hunting subliger with a few people as my bst. And I think our WHM had fomor hate. It didn't matter what we did. As soon as the mage did anything the fomor went after him imediately.

drop rate

Do you think that since they all drop the belt... only 1 of them has it for a set period?

Seems absurd but it sounds like something SE would do.
Price & Rarity?

This item dropped the other day off the Taurus. I have no intention of getting the Swift Belt so I have a couple of questions...

Has anyone seen how much these regularly go for in bazaars?
How rare of a drop is Fomor Codex actually?

Any information would be useful, thanks.^^

I managed to get a drop off a Taurus in Phomiuna Aquaducts, they are the DC ones near the entrance. Just letting people know they have soloing alternatives.

spawn item for swift belt NM in Sacrarium.(You have to be on PM4-3 to access Sacrarium)
level 50
Accuracy +3
Attack -5
Haste +4%

You need level 4 fomor hate to spawn the NM, NM can be take down by 1 party, but i suggest bring 2 parties for easier fight. Drop rate are NOT 100%(about 50% drop rate).

Last night we did a run to get our swift belts. Our setup was nin nin rdm rdm blm rng thf.

We fought the hume 2 times, the galka, and the mithra ounce. No drop, wtf.. we went 0/4 on these things. For one I can't believe these arn't 100% drop. And for two thats a ****** drop rate, we even had TH2. I was thinking maybe thier are requirements for the kill to get the drop. Something like the person that popped it had to get the finishing blow, or something like that. I dunno any info concerning this would be appreciated.

This item can not be found in the AH, but it can be put on sale in bazaar or traded. The item itself is used to spawn 1 of the 5 different NM's that drop the Swift Belt. (LVL50 Haste +4% Accuracy +3 Attack -5 Rare/Ex)

As far as Fomor hate goes:

The more fomors you kill, the wider their sound detection range is. I don't think they will "ever" make them true sound, but dealing with SE no one knows.

I am currently working on getting my LS together (heard rumors that a pt of 6 can't take the mob... but I am willing to die to try:P but my static isn't)... to try and take this on.

Some notes on fighting the mob... (ok rumors... will let you know after trying it myself...)

You need to have enough hate that the fomors have true sound... I hope this is only a rumor, cause these places are surrounded by fomors...

Can only spawn the one based off your race... I am ok with this, and well, I don't care about any of the drops other then the swift belt...

Thats about all I have heard... will post more when I find out.
other mobs?
