4th Job Warrior Rush Storybook

Discussion in 'Suggestions' started by sriemac, Aug 18, 2017.

Should it be made easier to receive the "Indecipherable Book" Storybook?

  1. Yes, by increasing Taurospear spawn

    36.3%
  2. Yes, by increasing the drop rate of the Storybook

    22.5%
  3. Increase both spawn and drop rate

    20.0%
  4. Should be left as-is

    21.3%

    Hi! I'd like to raise the idea of possibly making it a little easier to obtain the "Indecipherable Book" Storybook from Taurospears, which is required to start the quest to get the Rush skill book for warriors.
    I've heard a couple other 4th job warriors describing the process of getting the Storybook as tedious and soul-crushing, after they farmed it for 30 mins-2 hours. (With me myself posting this thread after farming for 4 straight hours on Taurospears with nothing to show for it. ._.)

    The problem being is that the Taurospear spawn is INCREDIBLY low, with the drop rate of the storybook also being seemingly low. The only maps that naturally spawn them would be Dungeon:Sanctuary Entrance 3, and Sanctuary Entrance 5, with SE 5 being the better one of the two with a whopping 5 Taurospear on the map at any given moment, mixed in with a bunch of Cold Eyes and a couple of Tauromacis. They also spawn back kind of sluggishly too, though I can't tell you how long without sounding very biased.

    I would like to suggest, if possible, that the Taurospear spawn either be tweaked to provide more chances to receive the storybook, or to increase the drop rate of the storybook. To how much it should be tweaked, I wouldn't know what rates would be fair, but I feel the current state of it feels a bit...tiresome. Mainly because I'm so unlucky that I haven't gotten anything in 4 hours straight... :S

    Maybe I might be whining too much, but I'm curious to know what everyone else thinks. Of course I'll probably have it by the time this post is decided on anyway, but it'd probably be helpful for any other up-and-coming 4th job warriors. I've also added a poll.

    (EDIT: I just got one after passing by the map on the way to Jr Rog by killing one Taurospear. Go figure.)

    It was hard for me to get it aswell, but as hard as the game should be.

    I recommend asking a friend to surf maps and channels woth you.
    Should take a maximum of 1 hour

    I farmed it for 4-5 hours to no avail, and can only thank CamilleCamille for helping me while I was offline. :) (To be honest, all about luck, someone got it on his first mob)

    Anyways, I agree with the low drop-rate, but I think it should stay as it is. It brings out the challenge of getting Rush. Furthermore, if we were to adjust the drop-rate due to the stated reasons, it will just set a precedent for many other skill books. (For e.g. Brandish 20 - This is probably gonna take you a longer time)

    i like the fact that skillbooks are a challenge to get, adds another dimension to 4th job that feels like an accomplishment. heck the feeling when i finally got Angel Ray after like 25 zak runs was really awesome.

    This is a pretty good argument against it, I hadn't even considered that. Judging by everyone else's responses, looks like it shouldn't be changed and I concede the point as well.

    The low drop rate is fine, I just wish there were more taurospears to kill. Only 4 of them spawn at a time in these maps and it's very annoying, especially if you have 284578324765278345623784523467856738924652368459384573897456 cold eyes being spawned at a time. (not sarcastic, i counted this many when hunting taurospears)
