Praetorium (reloaded)

  1. Continuing the original thread http://www.nextislandlife.com/mining/5387-praetorium.html

    So, new VU ... same lack of it :) Yes, u get additional 20 pieces (or 10 ingots) as the new mission reward but that's not the point, it should be found by mining as NI devs told us :rolleyes:

    Like SylverDragon, I too did drop about 50 times in CC area and much more drops than that all over NI after VU update and nothing :( ... no Praetorium to be found anywhere.

    Still hoping some1 will post a SS of a find ... till then have to assume the spawn is not working (or is working Rugaritz style ;) ) thus the new bps are more or less worthless (altough to that contributes also the additional insane reqs in crystalz :rolleyes: )
     
  2. Well, I just went to AG to see if I could get any armor drops from Cyclops and I was quite surprised when one loot drop contained 13 Praetonium.

    Is this a bug or is it not just a mined ore now?

    Edit:Location - spawn outside Thebes and 99% sure it was a Cyclops Mighty

    I also got Praet in a loot from a Cyclops (not sure which maturity) near Thebes. I think it was 6 pieces and I got it yesterday.
     
  4. It's not necessarily a bug, since there are mobs in other planets that drop ores (argos, drones, some zombies etc).
    Seems like a silent and surprising balancing since there is a distinct lack of praetonium so far. Thumbs up :D

  5. Did wonder if it was a way round the lack of minable Preatonium. I'm glad it's obtainable.
     
  6. Yes, I can also confirm it drops fom cyclops at a (very) rare drop rate. It's a nice workarround to the total shortage of it atm, but also besides the point - as Meg clearly stated Praetorium has been added to NI mining loot and can be found while MINING ! ... and that I'm yet to see :)
     
  7. On my last hunting run .. almost every minotaur and small cyclops had 'craponium'.

    Praetonium is indeed a mineable item!

    But right now, you can also get it through Greek mobs and Dinapoli's mission.

    Havent found any in mining neither in thousands of peds of mining....could we get a hint ? Noobie finder or high end finder ? For none of these found anything anyway...
     
  10. Gettin plenty of it from the AG mobs, so not complaining atm :) ... and maybe, just maybe, Meg is right and is indeed a minable item, in which case I'd adwise revising the "rarity" setting ... don't think the dev's ideea was to create the "NI rugaritz" :roflmao:
