Wet Bingo 2015 – Reverse Side

chikin_stares_at_useless_newman

A continuation of the previous post, this will act as a guide through the reverse side of the Rainy 2015 Bingo card.

Guaranteed

  • D-4: Speak to Claris Claes: I know, you really don’t want to. I don’t blame you. Do it though. Just put up with this annoying little shit for 5 seconds. You need an Episode 3 Mater Board active in order for her to show up.

Client Orders

  • A-1, E-5: Complete Hans’ client orders: Armored Baptism and Pack Beasts. You should have this already, if not you can complete this by either killing everything in the first block of Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training: Naberius” or by clearing the first room of Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training: Naberius II” 3 times.
  • A-4: Complete Hans’ Client Order: Giant Enemy Crabs. This one nearly qualifies as “awkward” as it requires 10 Krabahdas. There are no guaranteed packs of Krabahdas that I’m aware of, so you might need to grind it out in Arks Quest: “Wolgahda Extermination” which appears to have the highest spawn-rate of the enemy.
  • E-4: Complete Hans’ Client Order: Spinning Black Tops. This requires 25 Ol Micda kills. The Time Attack Quest “Marathon Training: Amduscia” has a total of 7 in the first area (2 at D-4 and 5 at B-1). Once the Micdas at B-1 are dead, trigger the quarantine event at C-1 to see if any additional Ol Micdas spawn. If none do, you’re likely better off restarting the quest.

Enemy Kills

  • A-2, E-2: Defeat Rheo Madullard and Nepto Cassadora (lv51+). Complete Free Field: Facility Exploration on Very Hard or above. Just rush to the boss.
  • B-2: Defeat a Nab Rappy (lv1+): Trivial. A very common enemy in any of the Naberius Forest quests. There is a guaranteed spawn right at the start of the Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training: Naberius”.
  • B-1, B-3, B-5, D-1, D-3, E-3: Defeat Fang Banther, Dark Ragne (lv51+), Fang Banshee, Rockbear, Wolgahda and De Malmoth. Run the Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training:Naberius II” on Very Hard+ (Hard+ for thelv20s). You will need to restart this quest multiple times.
    1. After clearing the enemies in the first room, go north for De Malmoth, east for Wolgahda and west for Rockbear. You will need to restart twice to cover all three.
    2. After clearing all enemies in the tundra area, go west for Fang Banther and east for Fang Banshee. You will need to restart once to cover both.
    3. Clear the rest of the quest to get Dark Ragne.
  • C-5: Defeat Snow Banther (lv20+): Rush to the boss in Free Field: “Tundra Exploration” ..
  • D-5: Defeat Zeshraider (lv20+): Rush to the boss in Free Field: “Ruins Exploration”.
  • C-1: Clear Girard’s client order:Rare Rappy Species: Clear floor 21 of Extreme Training: Sylvan Wyverns.
Chance

  • A-3: Clear Girard’s client order: Nyau That’s a Rare Species!: There is no guaranteed way to get Nyau to spawn. It seems to have a high spawn-rate in the “In the Driving Rain 3” Emergency Quest.
  • E-1: Clear the Emergency Trial: Aircraft Defense: As far as I know there is no guaranteed way to spawn this Emergency Trial.
  • D-2: Clear the Emergency Trial: Gift of the Storm: Requires you to clear the Umblla Emergency Trial. There is no guaranteed way to spawn this at all and to make matters worse its a fairly rare event.
  • B-4: Clear the Emergency Trial: Baize Destruction: There’s a guaranteed one in Episode 1 Chapter 8: “Beginning of the End”. Choose the 1st dialogue option when meeting with Echo and Zeno. It’s a fair way into the quest, but by the end of Area 2-C one will trigger. If you have the third path unlocked, just choose the 2nd option after jumping into the telepool. This way involves having the story unlocked, however, which may be too much of a chore to do. You’re dependent on pure luck otherwise.

Note that all the Emergency Trials on this Bingo do have a chance to spawn during the “In the Driving Rain 3” Emergency Quest, but they’re not guaranteed to spawn.

Requires the Emergency Quest

  • C-4: Clear the Emergency Quest: In the Driving Rain 3: Self explanatory.
Awkward

  • C-2: Obtain Matter Board Ep3-4: Requires you to grind your way through the first three chapters of the story. A chore if the story doesn’t interest you (and kind of a chore if it does, frankly).

As with the other post, please let me know if any of this information is wrong or if you think you know of more efficient ways to complete nodes.

Wet Bingo 2015 – Front Side

imbackbaby

It’s time for more bingo! This post will mostly just serve as a guide for people to complete the bingo as quickly as possible. More experienced players likely won’t need this guide, however it should be useful for those considering running through the bingo on their alts. I’ve split the nodes up into three main sections: Things that are guaranteed, things that are up to chance and things that require the seasonal Emergency Quest, “In the Driving Rain 3” to be up.

Most of the nodes are likely to be cleared during a single run of the Emergency Quest, so for the most part this post will share ways of completing the nodes while the Emergency Quest is absent.

All names in this post are matched with the English Patch where possible.

If you spot any information that’s wrong or know of any more efficient routes to clearing the Bingo, feel free to share in the comments below.

The guide for the reverse side can be found here.

Guaranteed

  • D-1 – Complete Client Order: Native Plague!? – Run Free Field: Naberius Exploration
  • B-5 – Complete Client Order: Fear of Encroachment. – Run Free Field: Ruins Exploration

By running these two nodes, you have a good chance to clear a number of the other nodes as well. Keep an eye out for green containers (node C-4).

  • A-1, A-2, A-4, B-2, E-2, E-4 – Run Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Practise: Amduscia”. Kill all enemies up until the first Sil Sadinian spawn, you can abandon after you’ve killed the Dahgash there.
  • B-4, D-2, D-4 – Run Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training: Vopar”. Clear out the first spawn then follow the jump pads to the outer islands, killing anything that spawns there. You can abandon once you’ve killed all the trash Darkers. This method will additionally cover nodes A-1, A-4 and E-4.
  • A-3, A-5, C-1, C-5, E-1, E-3 – Run Time Attack Quest: “Marathon Training: Naberius II”. Kill all enemies in the first room. You can abandon afterwards.
  • B-3, D-3 – Buy 2 junk weapons with an element on them.Grind one and then attribute grind it. If you need to know how to do this, Bumped has a guide here.
  • D-5 – Clear Xie’s Client Order: Purple Flowers in the Rain. This doesn’t unlock until you’ve cleared all her other Client Orders, and one of them requires the emergency quest. You need to collect 5 items from Frog Rappies. A guaranteed way to make these spawn is in “Extreme Training: Sylvan Wyverns”, Stage 21. This spawns 3 Rappies, so this may require at least 2 Extreme Passes. I don’t yet know their spawn rate in the “Emergency Quest: In the Driving Rain”.
  • C-2 – Talk to Faina. She’s the futhest-west counter attendant in the Gate Area of the Arks Lobby.
Up To Chance

  • C-4 – Destroy a green container. As far as I know there are no guaranteed areas to get a green container, however they are relatively common. One area that comes to mind is Block 2 of Arks Quest: “Rare Ore Mining”. This area spawns an unusually high number of containers for a quest, so it shouldn’t take long to find the container here.
Requires the Emergency Quest

  • B-1 – Clear Xie’s Client Order: Forest Checkup. Requires you to run the Emergency Quest: “In the Driving Rain 3”.
About The Blog

Also it’s been a while! For most of the last year I’ve been dealing with my final year at university. The last year was not like any other year, the level of intensity was such a sharp increase it was kind of a shock. To make it work, I had to cut back a lot of hobby-time including working on this site. Now that that’s essentially over, I’m giving the site another shot. There is a metric shitload of news I’ve missed and I can guarantee I’m not going to go over all of it. I may make commentary on some of the more significant pieces of news though, which is a fancy way of saying “shit I have an opinion on”. We’ll see. Writing this blog has been enjoyable in the past so it’d be nice to have it going again.
