    ^ Akriloth's Oblivion Blade, both versions, are rare and no longer drop from Sepulchuroth and cannot be found in any shop. So, you can no longer get it.

    @omega: Chunin went rare something like 4, 5 years ago? So no, it's not true. The class is no longer obtainable. The only birthday class that's still available and was never slated to go rare in the first place is ArchPaladin.

    Yeah its been 4 and a half years now since its been rare.

    From previous thread

    Wait... isn't the Blade slightly better though in terms of inventory space since you need to kill Makais for the Drone?
    If you need to kill Makais you need Bone Dust which would just be sitting in your inventory wasting space that could've been used by other reagents.

    Also since Blade has a guaranteed Tainted Gem drop, if you get 50 or more of them, you could just turn them into Dark Crystal Shards in dreadrock if you really need the DCSs.

    Drone is really only faster if you know someone with the NNH for the tercess shortcut.

    If you're gonna farm Nulgath items, get used to needing lots of inventory spaces.
    Personally, I keep all the items needed in order to travel around /Tercessuinotlim without having to constantly farm things.

    Having to go through Makais is actually good in the long run, because they drop Essences, which can then be turned into Gems or Totems through the Drudgen pet.

    As for the guaranteed Tainted Gem drop, IMO guaranteed DCS is better. DCS is one of the harder reagents to farm if you dont have a pet (rare or non-rare).
    Where as Tainted Gems are easy to farm through Cube Reagent or Bone Dust Reagent quests.

    With Drone you get:
    100 TGs
    35 DCS
    With Blade you get:
    40 TGs
    100 DCS

    I think you got the Drone and the Blade switched.
    The Drone is the one that gives the guaranteed DCS while the Blade gives the guaranteed Tainted Gems.

    You're right but that's not the point of what I was talking about though.
    What I'm talking about is from a newcomers perspective that is only just starting the grind for Nulgath farming.
    I'm actually quite used to Nulgath farming already since I have AFDL, Juggernaut items and the Void Paladin set.
    Newcomers only have like 30 inventory spaces to use so unless they spend ACs they're gonna struggle with the farm.
    Post #: 9
    1/25/2018 8:28:15   

    The answer is still Drone IMO, because otherwise they'll struggle with DCS.
    Also, you dont need to do just /Tercessuinotlim for Dark Makais anymore, you can go to /EvilMarsh map.
    Its a non-mem map, and doesn't have any requirements.

    Apparently I did, but hey, everyone makes mistakes.


    Newcomers only have like 30 inventory spaces to use so unless they spend ACs they're gonna struggle with the farm.

    1. A "newcomer" who doesn't buy ACs will likely not have 2k ACs within the next 2-3 years anyways, especially if they remove the 500 ACs from Honorable Hero, so they wont have the choice. I have an alt with 2 Honorable Hero badges and that account has under 3k ACs on record. Unless someone was saving up specifically for this event over the year or 2, I don't see anyone who would sit in this situation.
    2. If someone is farming for Nulgath items with only 30 spaces, especially the more inventory heavy ones, then they have likely already already accepted to sacrifice their inventory, so having the traversal items will just be part of the routine anyways. In the case of the bigger items, the minimum requirements to go to the respective NPC and turn in quests will require 15+ spaces easily (AFDL is ~17, VHL is ~21, NNH is 20), now using the Drone pet and be able to accept all useful rewards (-Fiend Tokens) it will require 15 if you include the need to have Dust, Chain, Hair, Defeated Makai and Essences. Even Juggernauts take up 13 space to turn in.

    Has that been confirmed that the map will be removed as well?
    Would be cool if they left it.

    It says so in the Nulgath's B-Day DNs.
    The map is only supposed to last until the end of this month but considering AE's tendency to forget thing it may last longer but it definitely will not last.

    Here's the exact quote.

    * This map will only be available until January 31st, to help you farm for the weapon.

    Has there been any news on the bounty hunter blade getting any sort of change or is it staying as it is? If it is staying as intended what's the best way to do it considering its slower then drone atm I'm not a super knowledgeable farmer so if anyone knows I'd be willing to try it out the drone is just alot of competition as it stands. I apologize if I broke a rule by this post but I need to know how to make use of the AC's I already blew and can't get back

    I would recommend /join battlegrounde when you are level 65-75, accept the “Level 46-60” and “Level 61-75” quest and farm the monsters in the first room.

    Once you are level 75+, you could move on to /join battlegroundf and farm the monsters and “level 75-90” quest there. It is one of the few place for level 75+ players to effectively farm class points, too. The monsters in /join battlegroundf have quite a fairly large amount of HP and hits fairly hard, so if you find yourself alone and that it takes too long to kill them alone, I think it is best to farm the two quests that I said to do in /join battlegrounde and check to see if the /battlegroundf room is filled later.

    What is the best method of farming Embersea rep on a new character that has not gone through the story? I seem to recall something about getting rep for finding a blaze binder over and over, but I don't remember the details.

    Post #: 19

    There's a couple very good rep farming quests which locks after you have done certain quests in certain areas.
    The most common ones are "Through the Fog and Flame" and "Where There's Smoke..." from Blazebalm in Feverfew.
    "Through the Fog and Flame" requires you to kill a 1 hp chest 1 screen above the NPC, it gives 300 rep per turn in. The quest item is not 100% however. Still faster than most other methods.
    "Where There's Smoke..." literally just requires you to move into the screen with the Blaze Binder miniboss and you can go back and turn in the quest. It gives slightly less rep, but is more consistent than the previous mentioned quest.
    Be careful to not progress the quests further than "Where There's Smoke..:" as I am not entirely sure when BlazeBalm updates her quests locking out these ones.
    These quests will however require you to get to Feverfew, which is the 3rd area, first being /join Embersea and second being /join Pyrewatch, but unless you are trying to do this horribly under leveled, that shouldn't be a problem.

    There's also a couple good ones in Pyrewatch, giving you 450-650 rep for just 10 kills of easy enemies, but the Feverfew ones are still faster IMO.

    @AWildNoob: There are a few ways to do it, and which one is "best" IMO depends on what kind of effort level you want to put in. There are a few methods that work with quests, for example, but those tend to require you to pay more attention. They may be faster than other methods, at the cost of requiring attention. Because the grind from 65 to 85 is quite a long one, I prefer to take a more laid back approach and use Nightmare or Bloodmoon (Nightmare for Legends, Bloodmoon if you're not) and just mindlessly hit AoE attacks (even better if you've got Vampire Lord or Abyssal Angel) while most of my attention is focused on something like a show/movie or a book. So the question for you to ask yourself is: do you want to be more actively engaged in it and do it faster (quests), or do you want to just sort of passively hit buttons while doing something else? That will help determine what the "best" way to do it is.

    thanks for the answers so far guys, i will try out bloodmoon but i definitely dont mind running around for a faster way to level up

    you stop

    well i do have some confirmation from asuka that the pets are, and i quote, "... almost comparable actually to the dot."

    so i guess the only actual comparison we have to look at is if you want guaranteed diamonds+DCS or diamonds+TG, in which case i would argue that BH drone would be more preferable over BH blade

    I'm looking to farm NSOD now that the damage bonus has been changed.
    What's the farming rate on Void Auras?
    Trying to calculate how long it would take.
    AQW Epic  Post #: 24

    Don't expect the non mem quest to take less than an hour to complete, unless you are farming with at least 1 other person the whole way and the average Void Aura amount is ~6 per turn in, or ~7-8 if you turn in on Testing Servers (I got 35-40 on average per 5 turn ins when I did it), which is highly recommended for obvious reasons. Assuming you do 5 turn ins (100 of each Essence) per day, which is the standard I usually use when giving estimates on NSoD, and if we say you average 35 per day, that's 7500/35≈214 days, or 7 months.
    All the other requirements can easily be farmed in a day each, assuming you don't spend days getting something like Doomhearts or Necro Scrolls due to bad RNG. Cavern Celestite is definitely the longest consistent grind besides Void Auras, but luckily you can get those while farming with CVKS.

    I would also recommend checking out this guide from T3788 for when you need to merge all the items. All the item totals on the list corresponds to their stack limit, with the exception of Barium at 500, so you can just stack it all up and merge it all together in 1 sitting. Just keep in mind that the items you get from Braeus' quests do not stack, you don't want to lose resources to such a stupid mistake.

    With the mem only quest, you are probably looking at 2-3 months of farming instead, but that's still a 2-3 months membership spent farming NSoD. Given you don't have SDKA, I assume that's out of the question entirely.

    The change on NSoD's damage bonus happened in September with the release of the Celestial Arena, in case you were wondering.
