Braggart’s Bow artefact farm.

http://www.visionofsages.net/toa/artifacts/braggart.html

I have tried this encounter several times now without success :(, so I want to do it properly!

I need four more like minded hunters each with a BB to farm Braggart’s Bow.
I would prefer a static group that will enable us to eventually farm the mob five times so that we all get the bow. I then don’t have to faff about with lottos or finding other Hunters and BBs.

If your BB has SoR or FoP and more than four hunters ask to join you’ll be given preference.

Once you have the enc, and if you have a more useful class of character to do the enc (e.g. supp sm \ warrior) then feel free to bring them along.

I think that five Hunters (with pets) and five BB’s is the minimum I can get away with, anyone disagree?

All the Hunters must be 50, Shaman preferably 47+. The encounter does give “a little” ML Exp.

If you’re interested drop a line below, with hunter name, BB name. And I’ll organise the time and place to suit us all :)

Just bring 5 hunters + 2 bb's for end + heal then you should have a sb who keeps Karise + guards distracted. Let the sb target the control spheres and hunters assist the sb.

I can come with sb for distract since i need the bow and already got enc on my hunter.

Done Braggarts 15+ times so I know this works like a charm.

Just had a look at Braggarts stats and to my suprise mid version of Braggarts
is much faster than the other realms. Makes no sense since mid hunter
class have least dex of all realms, and should there for be slower imo to
make equal damage. Its totally upside down imo.

Dps 16.5, Spd 5.1 (Hibernia), Spd 5.4 (Albion), Spd 4.8 (Midgard)

Seams like its another of those small disadvatages mid have.
Just a matter of time they nerf AE stun as well I guess, that I think is
one of the best advantages we mids have...

Enuf whining, just got suprised and perhaps there is a logical explanation
about this bow speed.

Hello Xajor,

I actually ran what you are doing now 7 mths ago and got about 6/7 hunters over a 2 week period the bow.

If you need any advice just PM me. I kept all of the bows until we had enough for everyone then distributed them. With regards to drops I also kept all of these until the end then did a lotto for them as some of them inc a bow are very nice.

We did this without FOP back in those days so this should be a doddle now. Its just a case of as soon as one archer starts to get aggro they leg it backwards out of range. All should use rapid fire and one hunter obtains the orb target whilst stealthed, moves back then all start on it.

Annoyingly enough I no longer have this bow as it was dropped by accident one night even though it was activated.

Thanks for all the replies and advice peep :)

The static group will be:
Corleth + BB
Congax + BB (Foper)
Takhasis + (Foper)
Killz + BB (Foper)
Chels + BB

Dacrath for enc
Phule for SB?

Reservists (if we're short or if you just want enc you're in):
Finkster
Jegerinnen (Hunter not 50).
Islefnair (BB not 47+)

I am around all day Sunday and would like to do the first enc then (if it is up).
Can you let me know if you’re available either by pm on FH, posting below or /s in game (Xajorkith, Corleth, Fawkrin).

I'm going to do what Dubaxter suggested, I will horde bows and loot until we have 5. This guarantees that all get the bow and provides an incentive for all to turn up.

So anyone know rough repop time?

repop can be 30 mins and it can be 3 hrs. What I did was set a time that stayed the same for every day and did it at this time each day during the week. If it repopped within 30 mins all good if not just do one that day.

Repop is all from 5 mins to 12 hours. He has a 10% chance to pop each hour.

I'll tag along since I need the bow too, I'll take the role as the one keeping guards + Karise interupted (means you can shoot the target I give to hunters by assisting my SB, without getting hit by any arrows). Then when all "control links" are down you'll start shooting Karise, who'll fire back at you. Then you'll have to run away from her fast since no BT/guard or anything will help as Karise never misses her target.

Once my Hunter has enc I can provide Warrior for guard....

Guard doesn't help mate. Karise never misses, remember? ;)

Bring your hunter instead and it'll go faster. 5-6 hunters and the enc. is done in maybe 30 mins.

Well we started to form group up on Sunday morning only to find enc had just started, Dodosbow, Pointson, Axlado, Rup.

I suppose that will teach me to advertise arte-raid on FH, bloody annoying but that's the nature of Midgard.
