    Daemons.

    I believe dragons and high level mages can very rarely drop them, but the only "reliable" way is killing daemons. Sadly, it feels like they drop about as often as the uncommon ones do. I've got 10 more common to go for the shrine.

    I've been killing the daemons in Northwest Blackblade Mountains but they take a long time to kill and I expect they only drop the uncommon variety very seldomly (didn't get one yet). I was hoping there would be a lesser creature that drops the common variety.

    Not with anything approaching predictability. That I'm aware of. But at least according to the release notes, they weren't added to anything else when Shrines went in. I got lucky last weekend and got an uncommon, and I had two commons from the previous weekend. Kinda sucks that farming that damn bird for Ankhs turned out to be easier than this.

    Might be better on the Daemons in the PvP zones, but I've never tried. Probably same drop rate, but maybe they respawn faster or don't have wave battles. i don't know. OTOH, the pre-wave battle respawn timer on daemons was 20 minutes, so maybe it's actually worse.

    I got lots of common one from the daemon in Northwest Blackblade Mountains when Shrine launch. Much higher than the old drop rate. They also have small chance to drop uncommon one. Wave battle there now respawn faster than the old day.

    People were selling tons of common one few weeks ago. Maybe PVP zone or other scene have a 100% chance drop rate.

    I'm not sure that I can kill the fire chicken. Last time I tried (admittedly a long time ago), it was disastrous.

    I thought the same thing, then found it surprisingly easy when I tried it out last week. I had killed him once long ago solo. But just barely, and I sucked down a crap ton of potions to survive. Wasn't that difficult this time around. Might be trickier with store gear, though. The bard songs make a big difference.

    I have crafted gear for the stuff that's too much for the crap gear.

    [edit] How many fire chickens do you have to kill to get a talon?

    Unless they've changed it recently, I usually averaged 1 talon per 5-6 phoenixes, but then had a streak of 29 kills without getting one, so, usual bs lol. Really need to make this like dragon haunches. -=(

    This is why nobody uses elemental resistance potions. I killed 6 daemons today and got 5 hooves.

    I don’t believe there’s any reason to use that potion for PvE as there’s nothing in the game that actually does elemental damage? It’s all physical damage.

    Except for creatures that cast spells (like Ring of Fire etc....).

    Well, high level elementals are nasty. Especially Suutak.

    Does that creature actually do elemental damage or just physical damage to you?

    Like for example Xavra doesn't do any fire damage to you at all. It's all physical damage. Like when you see them firing a ball of fire at you, you would think that is fire damage. It's not. It's a fireball of..... physical damage.

    I think it can cast chain lightning...not sure if the primary attack of lightning is physical or elemental though.

    They upped the drop a bit maybe two releases ago? I probably got around 1 talon for every 2-3 kills.

    Yeah looking at the API it’s dropping a lot more now in comparison to a month ago.

    Chain lightening should be elemental damage. Have not actually tested that but it probably is elemental damage.

    Having high resistance has certainly helped against things like shadow creatures, fire chicken, xavara (this one was previously broken), environmental damage like lava (also previously broken), elementals, dragons, mages....

    [edit] Some of the environment stuff might still be broken.

    My collection is now complete (although I still have 4 shrines to craft... eventually).

    Yeah. I'm just short the chaos shrine. I got one more common heart today, so only 9 more to go...
