    I'm wanting to find a vermin slayer talisman (or three), so whats the best quest to do?

    I did the gaman horn strong box one a few times, but that one takes ages to gather up the junk for it.

    Crafting ones maybe? Or is there a really easy large bag of treasure quest someplace?

    I'd try crafting tbh. Might even get a decent recipe or two along the way.
    I have one spare crafting tali that has vermin slayer on it if you want it.

    the best drop i have found for tali's, in my experience, is the crafting quests in heartwood. the easiest one for Siege would be the tinkers quest since they require small amounts of ingots for the barrel tap quest. and since they now stack (the barrel taps), you can make em at home, and then take them to heartwood in large quantities.

    yea the craft quests are probably the best way to get tali's. you can also get some decent ones from ML boss loot. the minotaur quest(the gaman one) is pretty much a bust, did 200 times about 8 months ago, and all i got was 1 halfway decent tali(a 26/24 smithy),although i did avg about 1 relic per quest from unraveling the loot. however considering how long it took to get quest items, it wasn't even close to being worth the effort.

    Just got a vermin as a bag reward from the war effort. If gold is not an issue then the broadsword smith quest works. People are paying well for the knights warcleaver recipe so could come out ahead

    Considering you can load up 16K of ingots on a beetle, the blacksmithing and tinkering (barrel taps) would last a while. Personally, I would just do the fletching quest, and use any oak kits to try and make balanced bows to imbue, and any heartwood kits to use for relic fragments.

    I also have one U can have, Uvtha.

    But why do you want to kill your own kind...?

    Yes Heartwood quest is the best way to get Talisman. I love the Bow one, since I have lot of wood.

    If you play on Pacific, I can help you out. I have a spare.

    I have found every slayer type by just looking in the bags left in heartwood. But, it was busier when ML was first released.

    The best way to do "The ancient World" quest (the one that requires the Gaman horns) is to multi-task.

    (1-3 can be done in any order - but concentrate on one job, before doing the others)

    1. go out and collect all the tattered map fragments you need in one trip. This can me good for resist training, as you're killing Priests of Mondain. It can also serve as a means to try to "distract" one of the SP PvP guilds for your allies, if you start hacking down their red healers near a popular PvP area. (the same holds true for others doing it in Fel on normal shards).

    2. When you go gaman horn collecting, take a butcher's war cleaver or skinning knife (the latter has to be wielded, not just in pack like the BWC), and harvest normal leather as you collect the horns. Gaman are also good targets for high-end taming gains (and, after all, you don't have to collect the horns on the account or character running the quest). Use or sell the leather to other players.

    3. Send a naked stealther into the Labyrinth for the minotaur artifacts. You should be able to get enough for 10 trips in one go. You might even manage to sneak in and steal someone's miasma paragon chest off the ground, if they are just looting them and dropping them (wait until they are too involved in combat to notice a disappearing chest).

    4. take 10 maps, 30 artifacts, and 200 horns to Heartwood (or whatever you can get away with that doesn't put you overweight). There, you'll just then be running back and forth doing the quest, as you don't actually have to go to the Labyrinth or Tokuno as part of the quest, despite what the quest infers.

    Hi

    A good way is to do lady melisande with some friend in the fel. You can get alot of nice tailsman if you lucky. Getting somewho who is wearing high luck suit will increase the chance of getting some nice item. Doing in fel is double the loot and normally a few tailsman go with it. Hope it help ^^

    In Heartwood do the stools from the lady on the bridge forget her name i know it starts with a C its 10 stools per very easy for a beginner carpenter with a few packies full of plain wood you can get alot of tali's in no time. But you need to be patient one will sooner or later be the one you want.
     
  15. I have found that doping the Lethal Darts quest is a good easy one.

    Just need 10 bolts per quest.

    You can get your wood from lumbering, and all your feathers from the various birds that stray the lands. For quick feather collection do the harpies in spirituality, and ask firends who do swoop to save you the feathers.

    Fletch your wood into shafts and then make bolts. A pack horse can carry about 16000 bolts thats 1600 quests.

    If you have a tinker then the barrel taps is your next best bet.

    "Getting somewho who is wearing high luck suit will increase the chance of getting some nice item."...........

    QUESTION.

    It only matters that the High Luck suit player is in the party or they actually have to land the killing blow in order to have the loot be influenced by that high luck of that single party member ?

    How does luck really work as in regards to making better loot spawn ?

    The rolls for luck are based off the luck of the top damager.

    Aha, so not only there has to be someone in the party with a luck suit but they also should be left doing most of the damage if the party wants to take any advantage from it.........

    Though, I would imagine, since in order to have high luck one has to give up better modifiers which help increase the damage, it is quite hard to have high luck AND be the top damager......

    Usually it is those with no luck or little of it who are capable of doing the most damage.

    It kinda sounds contradictory to me, have to have high luck but at the same time have to be top damager.......

    It does not go well with combat modifiers, does it ?

    Even before imbuing, you could put together a good luck suit for an ABC archer and deal a lot of damage, and of course, there are tamers. Tamer/Mage/SW'ers can deal out massive damage even in a luck suit.

    Plus, there is nothing that says you have to wear the same suit the whole fight. In UO Assist, and from what I hear of the EC, it is pretty easy to swap suits in and out. Just swap over to the luck suit before the creature dies.

    Wish they would add talismans to the treasure chests instead of all that junk loot.

    I actually have a question about that, since the luck page on Stratics confused me. At the top is written
    Yet under the table that says "Chance that loot value will increase for a given value of luck" it says something else, namely:
    I bolded it to stress that is the bit that confused me.

    Basically what I need to know is, when hunting in a party (with or without breaking near the end), do we all need to wear as many luck as possible or just the top damager? Sorry for asking a question that probably has been asked before, I just spend some hours looking through threads which came up when searching for "luck", there are countless of those!! :(


    And one more q, abt what Taka said. The double loot in felucca, is that just things like leather or also items on corpses? :confused:

    Hopefully someone can clear up my confusion! Thanks for reading!

    When loot is determined, when luck is applied, it is the luck of the player that did the most damage. That is for all the loot on the monster.

    Then, each player that did enough damage will get an instanced corpse.

    As far as loot in Fel. I know that loot in fel is of a higher intensity than what you will find in Tram. Luck would/should bump that higher. I believe that there is more items, but it has been a while since I've hunted in Fel and can't give you a definate answer on that.
