Finally finished the Bahamas quest. FINALLY! Augh.
I was stuck for a while at the Frog Fish hunting part of the quest as I was rushing my mains to Expert level. Anyway, a few Fridays ago, I saw someone broad for an FF squad, so I quickly joined the group.
Initially I was anxious to get the quest done because I didn't want to get caught in the middle of a crossfire with other factions who are hunting FF. Turns out that I didn't have to worry much. One of my squadmates spotted the fiend in some secluded corner, so we went there and whacked the thing like crazy.
Thank goodness we didn't have to share the spoils with other squads.
After FF, we stuck around as a group to hunt for the elusive Elite Amber Bee. I kid you not when I said that this thing is elusive. We spent a good number of time running around the map, but to no avail. In the end, I wasn't able to hang around that long and I had to hunt for the insect alone.
As I was more of a casual AFKer, I finally got the kill after 2 days. What's frustrating was that it looked like the normal Amber Bees in the area. Can you believe that? =_=
For those who are having difficulties searching for the Elite Amber Bee, here's a few tips that I got from those who finished the quest (and based from my own experience as well).
- Camp at H-J7 in Bahama Swamp of Eternity.
- Run around, switch channels & hover your mouse pointers on the bees (the elite version looks the same as that of the normal one, so you best be alert).
- You can also AFK in one spot that has a considerable spawn of Amber Bees and cross your fingers that when you check your quest log, you've already killed it.
- Oh, and be careful of the Escudo Prefer Leader, that is, if you don't have imba armors. :p It spawns in the same coords as that of the Elite Amber Bee.
In other news, I finally struck gold in ABS. And no, it's not a Dragon Heart Recipe. XD
I'm glad I took the risk this time in ABS a day before the 800% drop rate expired. Look at the best loot that I got!
Bahama Quest done, Gavin & Chaos Requiem, here I come! >_<
