I am trying to get the Sword attestation to drop from Goublefaupe (spelling) and my group must have killed him at least 20 times now. Every single time he has only dropped the Great Axe attestation. I just find it odd that if he drops 1 of 3 and sometimes the shield one (if this drop pool is still valid) and its purely random that sometimes we would see other attestations instead of only one every time. I know 20 is a bad sample size but has anyone else experienced this?

Does any other attestation drop from him now? or am i just really really unlucky? Is there something special i have to do to make this jerk drop the attestation i am looking for? Am i doing this totally wrong? or should i just be patient?

Attestations have been the biggest *** block for some relic upgraders. (Getting all currency, but Attestation takes forever to drop, etc.) It's just random dumb luck.

It's just luck, and people have had bad luck with attestations forever. If you had been doing this a year ago, your 20 kills would have taken you 10 weeks at a minimum.

Somewhat off topic but where did u get the pop item to drop from? 3 runs and 1 pop item drop between that one and the one for polearm.

Attestation pop items drop off the weaker Hydra monsters (there are two level ranges). Poke around here for more information.

Not a lot, the nms are weak.
Some jobs could probably solo but a dd+healer is a guaranteed win.

Have you tried keeping all of the attestations you don't want and forcing a different drop?

Sorry to Necro, but I am getting ready to start working on a G-Horn and I'm curious on the attestation. Right now we have a 3 man team that I farm currency with and we do pretty well, thanks to reading the numerous threads here.

How difficult would Quiebitiel be with only 3 people? What would be a good setup?

Me: blm, rdm, sch, whm, brd, smn, dnc
Person 1: dnc, drg, bst, mnk
Person 2: nin, drg, sam, pup, bst, thf, blu, drk

For currency, we are doing dreamlands with bst/dnc x2 and rdm/dnc.

I appreciate your help!

The fights were super easy at 90 with 3 people, so you should have no issues. BRD for you obviously, then maybe w/e person 1s strongest DD is, and thf/dnc for person 2? I dont see that set up being much of an issue.

Edit: misread and thought you were doing the trials for lvl 90. I would take you on rdm or whm for healing, but keep the set up for the other 2 people. Will need a thf to help farm multiple trigs if you dont get the horn attestation right away.

Any tips or suggestions for killing Velosareon? Will need to get an Attestation of Vigor soon. Is he soloable by BST or should I try to get some people? Mostly worried about EES, anyone know how much damage to expect from that now that we're 95?

Killing him at 90 was laughable. Only thing to worry about would be if you were doing GK, 'cause he never drops the attestation. Ever.

Thanks for the reply, sounds good. Is just a bit tough for me what to expect since I haven't fought an attestation NM before. Also, I will probably get at least 5 GK attestations before the Scythe one. Luck and all that.

I wanted GK, 1/1. I then wanted bow, 1/1. That was a year ago, though.

Velosareon is good man.

1/8 or 9 for gk attest a couple years ago, it's always been like that...rumors of killing it during a certain weapon "mode" or 2hr i think are unfounded, but worth a shot if u believe in luck
