Are rusted coins worth it?

#1Frank_PoolePosted 3/20/2014 9:02:20 AM
Since I know nothing about item discovery, would it be worth it to farm coins somewhere or is the one helm and gold serpent ring enough luck? I want to farm effigies from the dogs in the Lost Bastille but I want the best luck possible.

If coins are worth it, is there a place to farm them?

The midgets in both Belfries Luna and Sol drop them. But I don't know, I've never really noticed a difference when I use them. Doesn't mean they aren't working, though.

some people say it negates the other 2 items if you stack but i havent had that issue yet.

Oh they definitely make a difference in farming for armor pieces. And they last quite a while too.

Belfry luna has dwarwes that drop them pretty nicely (i think its like 50/50?) but you can get invaded while farming them. So its your choice.

I'm not sure if they work or not with item discovery equipment, and don't know how to confirm it or not...

However, I used them before fighting the mad warrior spirit in Belfry as much as I could and it seemed to help. I got all of his armor and the Berserker Blade after like 20-30 times.

The rusted coin raises your item discovery by 1%. The Gold Serpent Ring +2 raises it by 100%...

Well the ultimate goal is to farm ascetics. Get more coins to farm dogs > Get more effigies to enter abyss > get ascetics. If anyone knows a better way please share.

You've tested it? Do you have a source?

My source is the official guide in my hands. Other fun facts include the Cloranthy Ring +2 raising stamina recovery by 8.5%. Oh and it lasts 300 seconds.
