Talk:Dessicated Hydra Claw

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I salvaged 15 claws in a row using a normal salvage kit. I got 7 scales once, 5 scales 3 times and 6 scales 11 times. If someone thinks that's enough claws to be statistically valid, they could add the info, FWIW.

Official Dessicated Hydra Claw farming week[edit source]

  • crank up the smite and prot and add any extra into wind prayers or divine favor
  • 55 armor set and Totem Axe and -50 cesta

This build works like a charm in HM. Fleeting Stability solves the Meteor interrupt problem. Piece of cake! Myko Ducor 15:56, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I used to do this. Even with a crapload (6 or 7) aggroed, it works great.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 16:28, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
It's also extremely easy to farm Hydras with a varity of W/Mo builds. I suspect other classes may have viable builds to farm these too. Kalendraf5:54 pm June 1 2009 (CDT)
I use the standard 130hp Dervish build and go around the big valley in Skyward Reach, starting and ending at Augury Rock. A run takes about 20-25 mins and I easily get 12-15 claws a run, 800g and some merch crap. Lยкץ๒๏ץ talk 11:19, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Better to farm these in normal mode[edit source]

If you're attempting to farm for claws, don't use hard mode. Use Normal mode instead. As the wiki tallies for Hydra drops clearly indicate (Drop_rate/Hydra), the chance of getting a collectable drop is significantly reduced in hard mode: ~23.4% in NM vs. ~14.6% in HM.
