Errand 58: Gustplume

#1Lady_SiaraPosted 1/28/2013 7:52:08 AM(edited)
Is there some sort of trick to getting these like the rest of the errands where you need a specific item? I've killed 30 of these turds and none of them have dropped a gustplume and it doesn't say anything specific in the journal other than they 'occasionally drop' them.

Edit: Forgot to say the monster that drops these are beachheads.

Got mine from Major Byrde on Skull Mountain, they have a loot table of only 2 items and 1 of them being Gustplumes, try them.

you can use Mugshot to steal them and sometimes when you steal a gustplume they will drop another piece after you killed them :P

This worked great for me. First attempt at stealing from a major byrde got me the gustplume I needed. Thanks, and anyone who has trouble with this, I'd recommend doing the same.

For what it's worth, I did try stealing from the beachheads but I'd always get stupid stuff instead of the gustplume.

thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!!!!! I had been fighting those beachheads for hours...about 4.5 at this point and my first fight against a major byrde dropped it. Game should have told us about those guys instead.
