Heartwood Fletchers Quests

    Hiya I've been completing the Fletchers Quests over in Heartwood in the hope of receiving a shiny heartwood runic, I've spent a few hours over a couple of days trying for one (no this isn't about increasing the drop rate :p) Now my question is does each of the fletchers quests there have an equal chance of giving a runic fletching kit; say repeating cross bows (higher difficulty/more wood consumed) compared to heavy x-bows or normal bows etc? Thanks x

    They all have an equal chance....about 1 in a 50,000. :thumbsup:
     
  3. Hmm... let's see...
    1:50,000 chance for Heartwood
    9 wood doing foot stools
    450,000 total wood
    1600 boards in beetle plus 200 boards in backpack
    That's 250 trips (on average)
    Each trip is about 25 minutes time to restock and craft
    Average time for Heartwood Runic is 104 hours and 10 minutes

    Yep. I about due!

    I got my Heartwood runic fletching set on my third quest. I have never dared try again. I'm leaving it on a high note.

    If you are hoping for a Heartwood runic I would just say don't do it. By the time you get one you will look back at all the time spent and realize what a waste it was. Bulk Order Deeds are a million times better in terms of not killing your soul.

    However if you want to hit up the quest once or twice per day to try your luck I think that would be much more fun. A sort of gamble.

    Try doing the 10 crossbow bolt quest. 10 boards, can make in huge groups. Create a UOA macro to select the NPC and keep hitting your macro until you get the quest you want. You should be able to do a quest every minute.
