"Honestly, this quest is even more difficult than the level 40 MA quest." Eh, I wouldn't say more difficult. The MA quest actually took me more time. Just comes down to luck you know. Just try to find an area where enemies come in groups so when the whistle works, you have more chances to crit.
Yeah, I've been having trouble with this one too. It's simple enough, but I'm just not getting the crits. I even have 1 HP with the Ranger's scroll (+crit chance with very low health) and I haven't gotten any crits in many, many battles. I've personally been going against Slime Knights outside Alltrades, since I'm pretty sure they don't run away.
When I first got this quest I thought it was going to be hell.
However I got it relatively easily while exploiting the Treasure Maps for drops. Just whistle and kill mobs....it'll happen eventually. Mine just so happened to be on those Gold Golems. --- Pokemon Diamond Friend Code: 4940 9310 6049 Pokemon Heart Gold Friend Code: 1548 8296 4123
