Support / Re: Plague Surgeon
« on: January 19, 2019, 07:32:25 PM »
Just asked this question on Discord chat. Umaro and another player confirmed that Plague Surgeon cores do drop at all realm levels in Nemesis mob loot. You can boost the chance to find Nemesis mobs using the Ancient Cuirass Talisman and Extra Nemesis Creatures sigils.

Nemesis mobs have the same creatures as regular mobs - they just give 3x XP/resources and give loot after defeating them. It is in this Nemesis loot where Plague Surgeon cores can be found. Nemesis mobs also have special affixes which can be seen above the mob on the map and in the bottom left of battle screen: Agile, Blessed, Blinking, Brutal, Champion, Feedback, Hearty, Hex, Horde, Macabre, Misery, Obtuse, Plague, Protected, Pulse, Resistant, Thorns, Undying, Vengeance, Genius, Greedy, and Knowledgeable.

Same race mobs in both normal and nemesis mobs can have special creatures (shop creatures, Christmas event creatures if you have Pudding Card, and unlocked Special creatures), although not alementals or constructs. You might be thinking of the realm specific mobs (skull piles, totems, enemy mage battles, etc), which can have the constructs and alementals as well as special creatures in their mobs.

Hope you have better luck finding the Plague Surgeon cores!

Hi there, hours are not as important as realm level. I'm around itherian realm level 3300. I think somewhere around realm level 1000 and above all special creatures are unlocked in mobs whether you have summoned them or not. Note that they can only be found in special same race mobs, which usually only appear once per realm - so they are still pretty rare to encounter. Like I said, try the Plague Doctor Race sigils ideally with an additional Same Race property (allows special creatures to spawn in 10 mobs of realm instead of just one) to have the best chances to get plague surgeon cores. I've attached an example sigil. What is the max realm level you are currently at? Also, when you say you have never seen plague surgeon before, do you mean it doesn't even show up as an entry in your knowledge section of game?

General Discussion / Re: No more Thylacine?

Thylacine is currently in game as a very late endgame reward for completing one of the achievement series. Its trait is called "Eye of the Thylacine": "After this creature attacks, and the damage dealt exceeds 30% of the target's Maximum Health, it disables the target's trait for the rest of the battle."

General Discussion / Re: What is the Drop Rate for Tomes?
« on: January 17, 2019, 09:30:20 PM »
Tomes from random drops are quite rare, but can be boosted with all the loot modifiers. Prophecies do not include a guaranteed tome, but rather a chance to get one (they are rare there too). You can also get guaranteed tomes from the god shops for each favor rank. Goblet of Giving also gives tomes, but isn't really worth it until normal (not itherian) realm level in the thousands. Shady Dealer is probably the best source of tomes.

Hi there, realm depth does not affect resources gained from battles, which is the primary way to get enough resources for the money bags achievement. The key to that achievement is stacking all resource boosters, which allows for >200K of each resource earned per battle. Here is a list of some of the resource boosters: cards, nemesis battles, runes, creature knowledge, perks, sigil bonus, artifact bonus (wild artifacts can have up to +30 of each resource), itherian artifact (artifact type 50% boost also applies to the resources on the other artifacts), and resource talismans. Hope that helps!

Lord Zantai encounters are just really rare. You can increase the chances of encountering his special realm by doing longer normal runs at maximum level without going back to Nex - in other words, doing long contiguous realm runs. Also, the Lord Zantai card, which can be found in normal loot also increases special realm spawn rate.

Arachnid's Nest sigils are called "[something] Sigil of the Cave". I have just as many of these sigils as any other sigil area.

Help and Guides / Re: Do any found eggs have bonus stats anymore?
« on: January 17, 2019, 08:59:12 PM »
Eggs haven't had bonus tome stats since the beginning of early access. They currently just have heredities, no tomes. You can get tomes as random drops, from godshops, from Shady Dealer, and from Prophecy rewards.

You don't need to have bred it to be able to extract it - just need to have had it. Like I said, there are now creature drops of their cores without having them S-ranked. The old S-rank effect was replaced and it is now given by default. So you can get plague surgeon and soothsayer cores from creature drops. Creature drops are the special drops from killing that creature - they have a chance to drop their core. Since special creatures show up more often in higher realm depths, you will be more likely to get plague surgeon cores via this drop the higher your realm level. I'm also not sure where the plague surgeon only dropping in low levels came from since I've found them in loot in high realm levels as well. Also, plague doctors and other special creatures show up in realms the deeper you go regardless of whether or not you have summoned it before.

Regarding eggs, they seem strongly weighted towards special creatures (I've gotten quite a few plague doctors from wild eggs). So you are much more likely to get special creatures from eggs than just the random chance based on the number of creatures you have summoned (currently 792 creatures in game). However, I think wild eggs only hatch creatures you have already summoned before and you can't hatch avatars and godspawn from eggs.

Singular extraction is another endgame method to get cores that cannot normally be extracted, which I didn't mention before. In late endgame when you get vegetable dumpling and high Yseros talisman level, this becomes a viable method to get normally unextractable core (last Plague Doctor Sigil I did gave 6 Singular Plague Surgeon cores for instance).

I'd recommend trying the Plague Doctor Race sigils. Trap spell gems really don't have much use in endgame - so this may be the last time you would actually have a use for them. Pair trap spellgem farming with the plague doctor sigil (guaranteed to have at least 10 plague doctor mobs in realm = at least 60 plague doctor enemies). Then you only need to do one realm using that sigil at a low enough level to be able to use the trap spellgem on Plague Soothsayer and you might also get a special drop plague surgeon core. Either way, they are both definitely obtainable in endgame. Hope that helps!

Help and Guides / Re: Finding Wight's???

Hi there, all wights can be extracted normally except the Itherian Wight (Frostbite Wight), event Wight (Headless Wight), and the Erebyss Shop wight (Reclusive Wight) - they just might require higher knowledge level to extract them. Here is a list of the normal extractable wights: Dread Wight, Gravebane Wight, Roofstalker Wight, Terror Wight, and Trepidation Wight.

Plague Surgeons now drop at all stages of game and can be obtained both in loot and as creature drops as well as wild egg drops and Tartarith realm cores. Currently, I have 11 plague surgeon cores and have used about 10 other cores for knowledge farming etc. Like many drops in this game, RNG is involved. Note that plague soothsayer is a normal creature and can be extracted from - so there is no need to breed it if you have high enough knowledge of it. You can also get plague soothsayer from eggs, creature drops, and Tartarith realm cores if your knowledge of it isn't high enough yet. There are even Plague Doctor sigils that will spawn a whole realm of just plague doctors, which can help you to get Plague Doctor and Soothsayer cores.
