Uncanny hide?

#1_Issunrai_Posted 3/27/2013 7:35:10 PM
Hi guys. My understanding is that uncanny hides can be carved/received from quest rewards after hunting gigginox. After fighting him a few times, I haven't gotten a single one, and I need 5 of them for a certain lance that i'm upgrading to. Is there some specific part of his body I have to break? Is it a very rare item? Would be great if someone could help me out. I couldn't find any information online about it. Thanks

These are the chance percentages that the Brady guide gives:

Carve: 9%

Capture reward: 17%

Break reward-head: 12%

Break reward-breast: 12%

Break reward-tail: 24%


So, you should try breaking everything on Nox, and maybe go for a capture.

9% drop rate so just bad luck 13% from cap 12% from claw or face break 24% from tail break for everything else there's master card....

Alright guys thanks for the quick response. Do you have any suggestions on how to go about breaking his tail? I can break his head easy enough, but the tail...

The drop rates from Tri aren't that accurate for this game, since a lot of monsters now drop new stuff (like Venom Glands from Nox).

Try attacking it's tail while it is in rage mode. As long as you have green sharpness, your weapon shouldn't bounce. When Nox isn't enraged, focus on the head.

I've probably fought him about 30 or so times now i'd need like 1000 sample battles to be able to extrapolate exact drop rates but i'd say they are in the ball park for sure.

Oh, ok. I wasn't aware that the tail doesn't bounce during rage mode. Thanks.

Edit: Can I break everything on nox's body with just a hammer?

Well, they are close, but the actual numbers are a bit different. That's all I'm really saying. I guess I misspoke a bit.

Hopefully someone will update the Wiki with this game's drop rates soon.
