    Default Rare bosses in Advanced Quests

    (NA server)

    Hey everyone,

    Some friends and me are hunting for rare bosses in Advance Quests for the good loot. We try to figure out how to make the chance higher for getting the boss we want and getting a rare version of it. We tried to rush to boss couple times, but that seems not to work.

    We try killing all mobs in all areas and that seems to work, but sometimes we don't get any rare boss. One time, when we destroyed all the mobs in area 1 and had to rush area 2 (walking straight through it) because of an upcming UQ, we got a rare version of the boss we wanted.

    Are there any guides or theories about farming these rare bosses in AQ or is it all just praying to RNGesus?

    We know we need to destroy parts of the bosses to get a higher chance of getting good loot.

    Rare Bosses are entirely RNG, but for the sake of making sure you get the chances at more items, you need to make sure you kill mobs since boss crystals use that as a metric for the amount of loot they drop (ie. don't rush to the boss without killing things).

    Eventually, though, they should be releasing Rare Boss Triggers that will guarantee a spawn of the Rare Boss in Area 1 of an Expedition.

    Does the NA version have AQ risk level? If so, having a high risk level should increase the chance of encountering rare enemies.

    Risk level should increase each time you beat a particular AQ (caps at risk level 50 and resets weekly). You could also pay capsules to increase your risk level up front, assuming that the NA version supports that. Be careful not to spend more capsules than you can earn back, though.

    NA AQs are the same as on the JPN sever, so it does support up to Risk 50 and using capsules to increase Risk. I always forget that that increase Rare Enemy spawn.
