I have attempted to farm exi and rare compounds for jewelry in NM crescent. I think the drop rate percentage is too low.
It's getting to the point that the only way we can get ahold of the ones we want or need is to make a new character and level that character all the way up to lvl 85 just for xeons.
I myself have tried farming them and the drop rate is really low. I am killing level 73-85 mobs and i am getting eximus grade.
Every once in a while i might get a rare but i think i have gotten a total
of 15 rares (these include X-X compound, Dominator/Destroyer xeon, and stat.
I have found that i can camp the NM Crecsent Deadly mobs but they only spawn every 2-3 hours. and even then there is usually at least one person there already camping the mob.
I would love to have 2 different sets on one of my toons but i can't find the compounds to even make one set, let alone make another, I have also tried to buy already made and no one is selling.
Assuming you want a full X-X (Mnd) set
With the Rare NM Xeons quests we only get 5 of each bracelet, ring, ear, neck and belt.
We need a total of 20 for ear, 20 for ring, 20 for bracelet, and 10 for each necklace and belt.
Just to make a full set (Provided every piece compounds sucessfully).
In total for just one jewelry set you need 240 xeons.
That's even worse than drop rates than any other item in the game.
You have a better chance with the new Glacial and/or Frozen set provided it's worth it (i have yet to see a completed piece)
Just give it a thought.
