    So today, I finally got Ash Kagtunak after 30+ hours at bloodwolves!!! Holy moly, didn't expect to get it at all, but yeah... it freaking dropped for me and I was stoked AF. xD

    And now... I have to go find the rest of the other two pieces, notably the Sherekhan’s Panacea and Ron’s Tintinnabulum.

    Out of those two pieces, which one would you say is easier to get? I mean, I did the hardest one first already (*cough cough* bloodwolves) so I'm glad to get that one outta the way.

    I'm just hoping the other two locations aren't as competitive and packed with PKers like how it is at bloodwolves, which was a total nightmare.

    it's rng, heard stories where people went and hit the first mob and got it, then there are people who still hasn't gotten 1 piece

    You can't extrapolate general rules out of such low drop rates and nobody is crazy enough to grind enough to achieve an acceptable samplesize in that context.

    Pro tip - don't start potion from lowest drop rate ( only 1 mob in kagtugnak) and on very much super bad place.
    I've done both potions in ~80h doing it 1h a day with 16% eco, S knowledge on mobs, connected node 10lvl( region fame is 3lvl if its still mater), LS + 50mil tent buff ( so yes i was losing money)

    Wait, so you're saying the other two places are worse? Would like to know the reasons why.

    No, kagtugnak is the worst one. Its just 1 mob, loot super heavy.

    Was the reason why I started with Kagtugnak first. xD

    It's much better to get done with the worst ones before moving on to the easier ones.

    I feel pity for the others who are still trying to get Kagtugnak after 1000+ hours. Cuz for me personally it was torturous. Heck, I heard from one guild mate who had over 1 mil trash loot at bloodwolves and he still hasn''t gotten the drop.

    Grinding for the Infinite Potion pieces is prob not for the faint of heart. It's sorta a mix of hardcore dedication + good RNG.

    I got my potion with my seasonal character. Kagtunak was around 30 hours, Ronaros 40 and I was super lucky with Sherakhan I got it in an hour (started weekly seasonal quest and got it before I reached 2k mobs)

    Ironically, I'm only trying to get the Infinite Potion for my Shai cuz I want her to be that extra tanky in PvP.

    With so much HP regen, my Shai should be an unkillable force.

    Ah, I see :)
    Yeah, for pvp the potion is a nice extra layer for sure. I am not into PvP (only when I have to), so I avoid the grind for the potion.

    I did about 80+hrs at Blood Wolves and got that piece. I got really lucky too. I was ending my grind for the day and running to my horse and realized I got 3 min left on my loot scroll. I stopped and said screw this I am leaving anyways but said to myself its only 3 min. I did the 3 min and got the drop.

    Did about 80+hrs at Sherkhan and got nothing. Decided to move to Ranoros.

    Currently at Ranoros with about 90+ hrs and nothing there either.

    Starting at lvl 61 I'm 42% grinding Kagtum for the piece. 300,000 Kagtum trash and around 15-20 loot scrolls. Got 2 marni stones and finished 2 of them.

    I'm still 0 with the parts.

    What's your char's luck, zodiac sign, and the node lvl for those locations?

    Regarding zodiac signs, I do have a bit of a conspiracy theory for the drop rates between all my alt chars.

    For example -

    My Berserker has 5/5 luck.
    Zodiac Sign: The Hammer
    Grinded bloodwolves for 30+ hrs w/ no Ash drop at all.

    My Wizard has 5/5 luck.
    Zodiac Sign: The Black Dragon
    Gotten Ash Halfmoon drop for him within 30 minutes of grinding at bloodwolves.

    Bloodwolves node lvl was at 6 when I grinded on both chars.

    I get that rng is rng... but perhaps there might be some hidden rng mechs that the devs never told us about. xD

    he said grinded so much from 25% to 40% at 62 in 2 months, that's like 15 hours worth of grind in 2 months LMAO
