I've smashed its Horns, its Chest, and even severed its tail off and I can't seem to get this material even when I capture it.

I'm not sure if I break the Crystals on its back or not as it doesn't look like it even though I attack it constantly underwater or did they change it?

What's the drop rate of this material and what part do I need to break to get it? I just need one of them!

You just need to keep doing what you are doing. Lagiacrus Plates are rare, as in at least around a 10% chance with doing the above and getting its shiny drops.

It's also a Shiny Drop?

I take it down so fast with my Brother Flames Dual Blades in between 5 - 10 minutes... kinda hard to make it drop it when I trash it a lot. ^_^;

Better keep at it then.

Approximately closer to 6% being the highest chance you'll get a plate, took me about 12 fights and 4 caps to finally get one...
Oh, don't mind me, I'm just watching the human detritus argue...

Yep, it's a 2% chance of getting a plate from a shiny drop. If it is available, High-Rank Lagiacrus has an increased plate drop rate.

Maybe I could do that High Rank Quest instead for the Plate, though I have to increase my HR first... I haven't done Online yet so it's still HR 0.

What level does my HR have to be to do the High Rank Quests?

HR 3 is the minimum, but Lagiacrus requires HR 5, although the village now has High-Rank quests as well.

If you're having Plate problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 Plates but you ain't getting 1.

Nah seriously, I got crazy lucky. My HR1 online urgent Lagi (first Lagi kill this game) gave 2 Plates in rewards. It was glorious. Don't worry though, you'll get plenty of Ruby drops later while I suffer for hours trying to get 1. That's how this game works.

Just keeping cutting the tail and breaking the horns. 30 Lagi later I finally got my first plate, probably karma for getting a Los plate on my first tail carve.
