Does the Difficulty of the serpent matter?

Example, does ancient drop more FP than emerald if i deal same amount of damage + Fortification?

And I just took down a Purple Serpent and got 2 favour points. Fortification of 90k(ran out of energy the moment i found it) and 1.1million damage. This is average right? My friend got 3 favour points from a Ancient Dragon with less than 1mill damage. So overall which drops more FP?

It is complicated but:
1.) You can't be serious comparing 1mil on dragon and on serpent. Have you noticed the difference in damage you do on them?
2.) dragons are stamina based, serpents are not
3.) It is random
4.) i think, that only amethyst and ancient drop 2FPs per slot ( could be wrong, but I never got 2FPs in slot on emerald or saphire )
5.) all dragons can drop 2FPs in one slot
6.) it is random
7.) more damage on serpent - more slots -more chance for FPs ( up to a point, I think )
8.) it's random

Oh yea i totally forgot the difference for damage between the two. I soloed a Emerald serpent with 1.5m damage and 500k fortification and got no FP.

Oh ya sorry to ask, but Approx what damage will get your at least 1 favour point on Hydra. from your experiences. I know 1.5m total for genesis will 90% of the time get you at least 1.

I took down my Last Amethyst Serpent by myself and i had more in fortification alone (never dropped below 95%) with 6 mil in attack... and I would trade you all I got for those favor points .... All I got were a bunch of lionheart blades.... sun blades holy shields and crap ... not even the piece of the map I needed ... So 2 favor points looks pretty good to me :D

No favour points? Looks like the devs want you to fight it as a team D:

IT IS RANDOM. It can not be guaranteed. Hydra is not a monster to farm for FPs, in my opinion. The damage you stated is MORE than enough to give you shot at FP.
Let me say it once again: it is random. Nobody knows the system that will get you FP every time, and there probably isn't one. Sometimes you are going to get FP doing something, next time you'll do the same and fail. And that happens because it is ......!

Okay. So i'll just beat the crap out of hydra. I want Hydra heads.

serpents are the best source of fp. amethyst and ancient only. 500.000 aprox between damage and defense gives chance between 1 and 3 fp and you get them 40% of the times. once i even got 7 fp with that damage on an ancient, but sadly that only happened once.

Made a mistake and did a CTA and only inflicted the damage/defense below.

2,945,114 dmg / 1,730,714 def

Result = NO FAVOR POINTS!!!!!

Wow. that sure sucked. I did only 1.2m and got 2 FP. Try lower damage :D Mabye that'll help

It's better to do a set amount of damage to multiple monsters than to blow everything you've got on a single one.

x3froggi

True that multiple monsters work well. I think red dragons do give more FP. The problem is with the huge number of people hunting it, i doubt you'll beable to find one in time to deal good damage.

LOL! ARDs don't fall down easily. Without organised group they take a lot of time.

You can get 6FPs on Gold one ( for example) too...or on red serpent, or amethyst serpent.

Right said Fred! Dragons require 30 PA to get 3 demi slots which is 150 stamina.For 150 stamina I can do 500K dmg on 2 serpents and get 6 demi slots and I'll still have some stamina left...get it?

Uh i'm sorta being a idiot here but what's a demi slot? The demi points recieved at the end of the battle? Or monster hunt or whatever that is. 150k for a Red dragon and 6 FPs. Wow.

It's possible to get 10FP from a single serpent doing 15 PA, 8 FP is max for 30 PA on dragons. It is very rare though, I have seen 8 FP on a dragon before but never 10 FP on a serpent so far.

So you're saying less damage = more FP? So i should spread my attacks over a large number of serpents?

i think this follows the old adage, "don't put all your eggs in one basket".

edit: just did 900k damage on an amethyst, and got 1 FP.

I realize the serpent part is still in data-gathering phase, but this seems rather appropriate: http://www.castleageforums.com/cforum/showthread.php?t=30977

30 PA to red dragon. No favour points.

Off the cuff.. suppose my character has absolutely no stam but tonz of energy, is it still possible to farm FPs from serpents by doing just fortifying?

Yes, your total damage + defense combined counts for loot.

noob question, what is PA?

Foehammer

PA = Power Attacks

And I've got the only reliable formula for harvesting Favor Points.

Isit better to pummel everything into 1 serpent or spread it out over a few. By pummel i mean attempt to solo a amethyst :D

Spread it out.

Doing enough to make sure the monster dies is all you should aim for, being number one on the damage list doesn't earn you anything.

What is the good damage range for ancient serpent. for FPf farming.

06-17-2010, 06:44 AM
Just hunted a Ancient. Downed in 30 minutes, i did 847,793 dmg / 427,990 def but no favour points. The thing is, i got 15 demi points+ -______-"

I used barbarus. A total of 210 Stamina and 300 energy went into this. Energy wasn't using barbarus, only attacking. So what's a decent damage for FP farming?

I use Barbarus for 3 hits (45 stam) on most serpents, 4 (60 stam) on ancients.

Without crits that puts me at about 250k or 320k damage respectively, I don't use any energy.

I've had up to 5FP from a single serpent with this technique, but more usually 1 or 2, or none.

06-17-2010, 09:36 AM
You only hit so little? and still get FPs?

Attilas
06-17-2010, 10:30 PM
Ive killed like 5-6 serpents the last days and didn't get a single FP.In all of them i had 3 demi point slots,no FP tho.Tough luck i guess:mad:

x3froggi
06-18-2010, 03:06 AM
How much damage?

Attilas
06-18-2010, 10:57 AM
Round 250k in total,dmg+defence

Doiron
06-18-2010, 04:00 PM
do more damage, 250k is a little low for serpent FP farming

Dr Devious
06-19-2010, 07:44 PM
serpent's do my head in you can do 10 and get no fp or do 2 and get 8, there's no magic formula but i find if you attack and defend you tend to get more demi slots

Ok,this is getting old and funny only the 1st time...

I found out that damage on serpents and demi slot number you get can be pretty random-sometime I get 5 demi slots for 500K and sometimes I get 3 demi slots for 700K both on ancient red.My advise for everyone is-find your own sweet spot that suits your character build best!

Question. What is a demi slot. Means like
You've gotten 5 demi points for azeron - 1 demi slot?

Btw guys, i just pummelled 1.4m damage and 800k fortification into an Amthyst serpent. I'll tell you guys if i get any FPs. What are your predictions? O:

exactly. anything above the green items is a demi slot. energy potions, favor points, and demi points are all possible and have different drop rates depending on the monster.

06-21-2010, 02:55 AM
350000 between damage and defense gives you from 2 to 4 slots for fp.... only in amethyst and ancient

x3froggi
06-21-2010, 03:05 AM
2 demi slots only ._. no FPs.
