My first hour of looking for Charged Tailfeather

#1bhee221Posted 5/9/2009 5:37:51 PM
0 ZEEEEEEEEEROOOOOOO FOUND, WTF is this.
I've done everything from going from all heavy warrior, with supporting mages, all archers, everything.

Kept breaking the left/right tail but still no drop?

Am I doing anything wrong or is the FAQ wrong?
Suggestions?...

For one thing, it isn't.

Then what's happening..?
Is my game defective or is it like a very low chance of getting it?

Uh... I think i got that accessory once using Alicia/Celes/Dylan/Rufus. I might just be lucky to get it though

Dunno how far you are in the storyline, but you don't really need the charged tailfeather the first time you visit Serdberg.
You need it once you can learn adversity in my opinion, (and maybe spirit control, depending on how you play) and normally that's in Surts.
And when you're in Surts there's another red lightning rune you can get (Lightning Stone). You can return and get it when you are that far. Also your level will be higher so you got an easier times getting it later, and you won't miss anything.

I need it for the Grand Sting I think.

the drop rate is pretty low, but it's possible to get it.

go to sandberg mountain ruins where you get to fight the Thunderhawk.
the Ancient Forest has Thunderhawks too, but not as much as sandberg.

dashed behind it and attack it's tail (the two long strands behind it).

you might wanna focus on precision and use a LW, like Alicia.
her Cutting Edge --> Imperious Act ---> Mirage Pierce is quite good as breaking small parts (don't mash, though......time them slowly).

i got mine within 20 mins (needed the red lightning rune early to learn spirit control) X-D.

There is absolutely no reason to get Grand Sting. weihander outmatches it in many fights and it's alot easier to creat. Also you'll get a Grand Sting dropped by an 1-time enemy later most likely. Creating it is a waste of time and money.

in all my playthroughs, the only HW sword i ever need was Bastard Sword ---> Striking Sword ---> Elemental Edge ---> Flamberge ---> Durandal / Acretaris (depends) ---> Claimoh Solais ---> Demon Sword "Nefarious" ---> Tyrfing

i would advise you not to farm the tailfeather to get grand sting.

Plus you'll get it a little later. Zweihander has Giant Killer, which is very helpful. It's also much cheaper.
