It feels impossible to get a Brachydios gem

#1LotionExplosionPosted 3/22/2013 6:18:19 PM
How many of them do I have to kill to get one?

As many as it takes to find one.

I hear you on this, been fighting him all day and not one gem. I wish they would implement a trade system for these rare materials, at least a gem for gem trade. It's annoying when I fight Zinogre 2 times and get 3 Jaspers, but I fight Brachydios 20+ times and not one gem.

0 from the next 15.

in MHFU the more parts your broke like horns, wings, claws, tails AND captured it your chances for a rare item increases..idk about 3u though im assuming its the same

I don't know, the guide just list the 2% chance on carve and capture rewards. And 1-2% on tears as well.

I have killed about 6 Brachydios.

2 gems.


Anyhow, if they follow the same rule as plates, its 3% to get one from rewards, 3% from carving tail, 2% to get one from breaking head (?), another 3% chance from capture rewards, and finally 1% from shiny drops (slime puddles sometimes leave them).

One of my gems did come from break rewards on a kill, so im assuming the head. Also i did get one from a slime pile.

Apparently OP for his entire argument does in fact put his fingers in his ears and go "LALALALA" the entire thread. Fascinating.
#10closetkpopfanPosted 3/23/2013 6:29:02 PM
Pretty much, only it's 2% on all the carves, and 2% in capture rewards. Not sure about kill rewards, guide doesn't list gem under any break parts though.
