  3. Farming Tomes of Philosophy as a fresh 50... Not geared for AK?
2 years ago#1
I just finished up my storyline and started my Relic weapon quest.

I'm trying to get Rank 2 in my GC so I can get my 50 weapon and then proceed to farm Darklight Armor. I was told this is needed to tank AK, which I need to farm Tomes of Myth for my AF+1

So what exactly is the way to farm Tomes of Philosophy for someone not geared enough to do AK?

I searched for similar posts and everyone just seems to say go for AK.... While most say its a gear check (and im in AF still).

Goal is:
- Farm enough Philo Tomes for Darklight
- Farm AK for Myth Tomes
- Eventually get geared enough for Hard Mode Primals.

What dungeons give Philo Tomes besides the final story ones and Stone Vigil?

your gear is probably fine as long as everything is at or around 40+

it's mostly a gear check on the other members of your group, and people just say you need more because they have very limited experience with it

It doesn't matter if your in AF gear still. Just go to AK and let em know your new. There is no other way to get a decent amount of times.
Hopefully they let you know how things work

Thanks.

I'll just queue up and see what happens. I was kind of freaking out because people made it out to be a massive gear check.
