Hi -- I'm in a fairly casual family style guild that nevertheless has a lot of members at/near 65 now -- I'm looking for some sort of raidable target to farm glyphed runes. A few folks have picked up a rune grouping in BoT killing the wing names but the drop rate seems fairly low and I'd like to help our casters with a guild effort so they aren't on their own to chance it in BoT or spend lots of plat in the bazaar.

We can field about 5-6 groups during our peak play times and can kill things like Vindi, Dozekar, Klandicar, Zlandicar, Xanamech without much difficulty. About 1/3 of us are flagged for Tactics and rest are working on it, if there was something in Tactics that fit this bill I could get us to focus on finishing their Diaku quests. Really looking for something that is often up as we're not that great when it comes to mobilizing for multi-day mobs. I don't mind if its some sort of event like clearing to Xanamech in PoI -- even if it took a couple hours to complete if there was a good shot at a rune at the end then it would be a worthwhile effort for us. I'm pretty sure we can kill the BoT tower bosses as a guild, do they drop runes and what is their respawn?

Thanks -Xorgo

The drop rates of runes off tower bosses has been somewhat decent and I think they are on an 8 hour timer?

BOT Tower bosses are perfect for what you're looking for. There are four, they drop loot now according to patches, and (at least the first several times), they're a fun and challenging clear for a smallish not VT equipped raid.

There are also several mini-bosses in Tactics that I believe can drop runes, though they were targetted originally because they had a chance to drop ornate molds.

The Lords in Storms also have a chance to drop runes, and those also can be quite a challenge for a smallish raid.
