    Hey,

    A friend of mine has done the 10 missions of the epic chain, he was hoping to get the final token combining the other 10 but it seems it's not that easy.

    So...after reading on cyrenesecrets: There are 2 more missions? and somehow he needs to acquire a "Tanhok Amber". Maybe the Empis Queen loots the amber?

    Where the hell does he activate the 11th mission? lol

    A little help would be apreciated.

    Cheers.

    He didn't get any mission, or indications to where to get the 11th mission.

    Hey guys,

    I've tweaked the mission information and some item descriptions to hopefully make it more clear that in order to combine the 10 tokens you have to also add a Tanhok Amber.

    Tanhok Amber is able to be looted from any of the Stage Two Epic Mission Mobs.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Hmm, I did not get any Tanhok Amber. You should be able to get it in 1500 kills...

    I think the available units of Tanhok Ambers that can drop is really low. I have looted one from Monsterously Toxic Jellyworm. I know that it can also be looted from Protocores. Probably from all Cyrene creatures who are above certain level. It is probably the easiest and definitely the fastest way to just buy them. They were going for 400-500 PED/unit last time I checked.

    Yeah well, he has spent a small fortune doing the 10 missions and didn't want to buy anything in order to finish them. Also, he didn't loot any Amber during those 10 missions, which is kinda sucky.

    But I guess if there is no other way.....

    If anyone has an Amber for sale at a fair price feel free to contact (don't ask for BS prices or you can keep it).

    Kris, u mean ALL Mobs in Epic Mission Part 2 ? Or does that mean only Mobs at Stage 2 (Merfolken) can drop it ?
    Rumors say ppl got it on other Mobs, but nobody ever during the Mission chain ?!? Can u please be a lil more exact here ?

    Probably "Stage Two Epic" is the name of this whole mission chain.

    So far afaik, it has only dropped from toxic jelly, vlanwing and protocore.

    Possible explanations:
    - It drops only from the mobs NOT in Epic Chain
    - It drops from any bigger mob
    - Something's fishy here (and i dont mean wiles or muckjaw :p )

    Hey guys,

    I can confirm that it drops from the mobs that Fifth listed:

    It should also be able to drop from any mobs that are included in missions as part of the stage two epic mission chain:
    I'm looking into this to see if/where there is a disconnect.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    OK, figured out which one it is. Regretfully the right answer is 3rd: Something's fishy. :(

    Currently Tanhok amber doesn't drop from any mob.
    Not from the mission mobs, not from the mobs in the crater, no matter how many thousands you kill.

    For a moment i was thinking maybe the goal was to limit the number of guns and everything's working as intended? Then realized the current setup doesn't even limit anything. It only allows a small circle of people to exploit the system. Use up one item, thus freeing it back to the lootpool and immediately loot it back at the next loot server update. For everybody else (who don't know the exact time when this "swap" happens) theres no chance, so the mission chain is effectively shut down.

    Hope this will be fixed in the next PP update.

    I'm not going to be a happy camper if I get through this mission chain and have still not looted an amber and there is no way to get it from any other mob. The challenge should be completing the killing of the mobs, not trying to find some obscure item.

    Hey guys,

    I talked with MindArk on Friday, this item is definitely still in able to be looted from the above sources that I mentioned.

    The issue is that it should also be available from the mobs used in the Stage Two Epic Chain but currently isn't. This is something we are working on getting resolved but it might not be able to go in until the next Planet Partner VU.

    We've also add more descriptions the Stage Two Epic missions and items, as well as an additional info mission to explain more about the stages of it and rewards. Those updates will be coming in the next Planet Partner VU.

    I hope that clears things up.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    The main question here is - how are Tanhok Amber drops configured - if it's a percentage without upper limit (like hides and oils) or if there's a maximum number of items that can exist at any given moment ingame (like mod fap, or laser amps).
    I have a very good reason to believe it's the latter.

    Now, if this is the case, even if 1-2 could still be looted before the maximum is reached, it doesn't solve the problem, only postpones it.
    I mean, if that's the case, then the basic principle is wrong. Think about it - if i will loot amber while progressing through the stages of the mission chain, i will keep it in storage until i finish the mission, right? It's a long mission thou, many people are at one or another stage, even more are planning to do the mission in the future. People are playing with different intensity, it might take years for some. All those people will keep the amber thou should they loot it, just in case.
    Unless the maximum is a very big number it will be reached eventually and we're back to square one. Stuck.

    Althou there's small differences in detail, in principle this goes for both Epic's.

    Once the player has completed all the grind and spent a massive amount of PED doing the 1-10 missions one stupid item should NOT stop him from getting the reward.

    It's lame, unfair, lazy and a pain in the ass. I understand it's the way MA controls the reward of ul items from cyrene, but sadly it's the cyrene team who will pay the consequences for dissatisfied customers.

    My friend is still waiting to get one, rather pissed and I have completely stopped my epic mission progress.

    Sincerely.
