View Full Forums : 2.0 Rune Fragments
04-02-2006, 03:26 PM
I've finally started working on my 2.0, because I've been a slacker forever, so I started foraging for the rune fragments in Barindu / Ferubi. I got the first fragment within about 10 minutes of foraging, and I've been foraging for the second for the last week. I've spent about 30 hours in Barindu and Ferubi trying to forage this second fragment, with no luck yet. I petitioned it to a GM, thinking maybe it was broken, and they said that last they'd heard it was working fine. Has anyone else had this problem or anything like it?

When I did the fragments, they seemed very random. Also, there might be code in place that you cannot forage the same rune fragment twice as long as you have one (a kind of hidden "lore to forage" flag). The rune fragments come from different zones, so you might try moving if you haven't. Might just be very unlucky as well.

Okay, I've tried moving around, different areas of both zones; I foraged the first one in Barindu and I've spent about 20 of my 30 hours foraging in Ferubi. I've also tried having the first fragment in the bank, in an inventory bag, and in the actual container for them. I also get a "Duplicate Lore items are not allowed" message in both zones, so I know that the first fragment can come from either zone, but still no second one. :confused:

Try foraging in Natimbi, the runes drop from different zones if I remember correctly. Like, Rune A drops from zones a and b, and rune b drops from zones c and d. It's been a long time since I did this so I can't remember which zones dropped which runes ><

Awesome, thank you. I'll try that and let you know how it goes.

It's just very rare. I had a bot once, for foraging something like Tea Leaf Oil, sitting in Natimbi and Qinimi and Barindu over like two weeks. I got my stuff foraged and when I was running back to Natimbi magus, I hit forage again and then I got the first rune fragment of all that time. So, it's just rare.
I got these for my own epic while doing BiC and having forage keyed to right turn.

I got both of them in Ferubi.

Got both of mine in Ferubi while helping a cleric friend with her map pieces. They can both be foraged in either ferubi or barindu. Can take awhile to get them though.

Definitely is not code to not forage the same rune twice. I got 8 lore messages before I got the other fragment. Got both in Barindu too.

I got my 2 in Barindu.

Definately try Ferubi, got both mine there in about 2 days time.
I got my 1st long ago when 2.0 first came out. Wasn't working on it at the time but happened to forge it just passing through Ferubi. Later when I decided to start 2.0 I went to Ferubi and it took about 15 min to get the second. So it's all just chance.

Finally got the second one in Barindu after about 50 hours of foraging. Guess I was just REALLY unlucky. Oh well, thanks for all the input everyone!
