    Chests are very inefficient. Pug COA1 on normal, there are almost always people farming it. You can normally finish a set in a day or two, unless you're looking for a really specific weapon.

    Yep just rng unfortunately. Iirc there’s a unique resto staff that can drop from one of the bosses in coa1 but I’m guessing that’s not the staff you’re looking for. There aren’t any unique inferno staves, swords, or shields that I know of. If a dagger would suffice, the fire maw in coa2 can drop a unique one.

    The last boss of the dungeon is your best chance. They are the only boss guaranteed to drop weapons, shields, and jewelry. Unless there is a named piece, those drop from specific bosses.

    also, if you do not yet ( dont see it mentioned at all ) its always a good idea esp when farming chests ) to have the treasure hunter passive in the green shadow tree

    Weapons are hard armor and jewelry is not. Best way is pre made group one vet one normal and repeat, drops seem better on normal use group find for damage buff.

    Not difficult until you need a specific piece.

    @crooksy80 Depends on the parts you're after, in chests the loot table is full (Armor, jewelry, weapons from the 3 sets or well, nothing at all) when you kill a specific boss, like say the last one, youre guaranteed a weapon or a jewelry piece.

    In short, chests make RNG worse, its better to focus on the bosses and have some friends to share loot.

    farmed this for...1 month easy before Morrowind. Took me that long to get all pieces I needed.

    2x sharp 1h swords was painful, but IIR getting the pants in divine (prior to transmute station) was horrific.

    I found that the legs in a good trait (moot point now with Transmutation) and the weapons are elusive. I had a BSW Inferno drop in training last month. The first BSW Destro I ever saw drop in at least 50 runs or more over the years. Haven’t been farming that hardcore.

    Yeah I'm looking a sword and an inferno staff dont care what trait but it seems impossible haha
  • Black12Jack44
    Good luck. Know this can be frustrating. I pretty much have just started focusing on sets you can craft just because I got tired of farming and often found it not very fun.

    I didn't have a hard time getting it at all when I went through CoA with my group.

    We have an understanding of what armor type each player wears, or we will discus with each other what we are looking for in the dungeon before going in. If we find a weapon/armor piece for the set someone wants, when we are out of combat, we will just give it to the person who is looking for it. For example, on my DK, I was looking for Burning Spellweave, I only found one piece of it. Two friends in my group found about 3 pieces each of it, so they gave it all to me. Now, what I did find were pieces of the sets they were looking for, so I gave the pieces to them.

    With just our first run and the pieces they game me, I had 5 out of 5 pieces needed for the set.

    Don't random queue though, you will likely not have a full group of cp 160+.
