    I also would like to know this, minus the argonian part :P Can you get them from all overland creatures? eg Sabre Cats, Giants, etc.

    The thought of that makes my Argonians scales dry. Argonians have been through enough.

    On a more serious note, They promised their existence, not that they would be easily obtainable.

    This means it doesn't exist. They said the gold motifs in the daily quests were just " rare" and they very very seldom exist.

    Remember that 0-point-something droprate on the imperial motif book (I think it was the motif, but maybe it was something other) during the very first days on PC? The droprate they later said they increased as their calcs rounded it down to actual zero?

    Why not use the features in game already. Rounding-fecked RNG, it's not a bug, it's a feature!

    Paying 100K+ for a recipe is silly. Before the patch Ambrosia recipe was ~30K and fragments were 2.5-3K, which was reasonable, now I've seen it sell for even 200K. I don't know the exact price for the consumable itself, but it was around 2-3K.

    Paying 200K+ for a consumable that grants XP gain is even sillier, even if it were 10x, not merely 1.5x. XP gain is overrated in this game. I've been playing for a bit less than a year at vet level. I started playing my main on 01.10.2015 and reached level 50 on 23.11.2015. I've reached CP501 21.05.2016. Today I have CP743 and I'm gaining about 2 CP every 3 days just playing the game, doing pledges, doing trials, questing on my other characters etc. I've never subbed or used any XP potions or scrolls during that period, but there were ~6 weeks of double XP events - the Jubilee in April and Witches Festival that has just ended. I didn't grind CP either but I've played a lot of random dungeons, since this is my first MMO and I really wanted to get as much real experience playing in groups.

    So I won't ever buy any XP modifiers, but I will craft and sell it if there is any demand. I won't fish because I find that boring as hell IRL, and more so in this game - I tried once during beta and there were the worst 5 minutes. I don't like to farm ore, wood and cloth, so people must bring their dust and roe if they want me to craft anything. My in game time is way too precious to waste grinding mobs or doing repetitive non-combat actions. I've even automated my writ crafting so it takes 4 clicks and 2 minutes instead of 30 clicks and 10 minutes.

    @xenowarrior92eb17_ESO

    It has a chance, such as it is, to drop from any hostile mob in the game.

    Have I seen one? No. But I would imagine the more mobs you kill, the better your overall chances. So, any of those good grind spots people have been using to level

    ... when fighting a specific monster ...

    could you please be more descriptive in what you mean by the term "monster" ?
    there seems to be a bit of confusion as to what this term's meaning is when we are talking about NPC's.
    not trying to be rude, just not sure on the specific's of what you guys mean by "monster"

    My problem with this quote
    This extremely rare item can potentially be found on any monster within certain areas, listed below.
    from the 2.6.9 patch notes is the word potentially...

    That leads me to believe the drop rate is not universal, but different mobs may have a different drop rates. I don't disagree with doing that, but I would personally like to know which mobs have better odds.

    Also it is unclear to me if dungeons/delves/public dungeons count. It says the drops are specific to the zones listed, and while those are in the said zones, they all have their own specific zone chat which doesn't interact with the zone they are in. So are they really considered in those zones, or do dungeions/delves/pub dungeons count as their own unique zones...

    It was linked in another thread, that monster means any hostile enemy at all. So the bugs, the people, the animals, the ghosts, the atronachs, everything.

    I have killed I would guess thousands of monsters and will probably kill thousands more before I get one. IF I ever get one.

    If you want to use a highly populated area to kill enemies, just remember....so does everyone else. Everywhere is full of people killing mobs.

    You know, I just thought of something based on my comment above. The new potion is working as intended as we are killing 150% more mobs in hopes of having this drop. So, that alone has increased our Exp Gain by 150%.

    I was thinking exact same thing the day these were announced, also if you started farming them at level 3 you would probably be level 50 before it finally sinks in they dont exist :expressionless:

    Your Parsing this too much.

    Auridon Zone
    Mehrunes Spite Sub Zone of Auridon.

    The stuff drops in the original zones for the game, so no one who does not have DLCs will be at a disadvantage. Craglorn is considered a DLC, even though its part of the base game as you did not have to pay for it.

    I don't see the appeal to all those xp scrolls and potions either. I do have the recipe but have never used it nor will i. I have around 20xp crown scrolls that i have obtained from various bundle on the crown store over the time I've played it, yet I have never used one. Never felt the need to. The only reason i haven't binned the xp scrolls, they only take up 1 inv slot in my bank and they're yellow. I'm a sucker for yellow in-game items.

    Still haven't heard of a single person who's obtained an Aetheric Cipher nor seen a single Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia for sale in any guild store. Hm... Can anyone confirm this thing is actually in the game? O_o I know the Aetheric Dust is obtainable even though the chance to get one from a material node seems to be 1/10,000 or lower (or there's a global server limit which would be worse ><).

    In the past 3 days I have spent more than 12hrs killing my at across Tamriel, gathering all nodes in come across, and have looted over 6k various raw materials/made around 30k gold from vendor trash .

    Grand total?

    NOT A SINGLE GD CIPHER/DUST.

    Seems legit.

    I'm like 4 months away from 2 years playing the game. I had 5 vr16s and 3 vr1's before deleting my DC characters(1vr16 2vr1) and raised 3 more to vr 1 before the vr levels were removed. I have over 760 cp points... On my main account. My second account has something over 225 CP with two level 50s.

    In all that time played I have found absolutely zero Imperial motifs, and I love to open everything. So while I can understand people complaining about not finding the dust... People who are complaining about not finding the cypher in less than a week, just blow my mind. Like should it really just be so easy and if so why should it be so easy?
