The endless archives are supposed to yield special style pages for the class sets by killing bosses right? Then why is their drop rate so low!? I went through the archives 5 whole times and still nothing! They're also available for purchase with archival fortunes but they're too expensive, seriously 12000 fortunes for 1 random chapter? Pathetic! I'm not gonna run through the archives for hours just to get 1 page, too much work not enough reward.

    What style pages are those? I'm trying to look up the names but they're always referenced as styles dropped from Endless Archive or Infinite Archive... (why are there even two names?!)

    They are the style pages that correspond to the class sets. The ones we're prevented from previewing in collections, unless we're on the correct class for the style we want to preview.

      Also, get this: you can’t hide the helmet and retain the aura (if that’s one of your five equipped style pages) and weapons also don’t count towards the aura. I immediately stopped farming when I learned all that.

      I wish they were tradeable and not class-bound. I've apparently unlocked every Arcanist piece over several runs on the weekend, and I won't even wear them. I'd prefer to trade them to players or even to the Filers for something I actually want to use: the furnishing plans. The drop rates are awful.

      I think you have to get to Arc 5 with Marauder and secret rooms to earn enough to buy one style page 12k Archival Fortunes or do Arc 1 and 2 three times it would be easier and probably faster if solo.

      Idk, a 4 arc solo runs with doing couple sides and killing scamps wields at least one page, but generally two for me. Seems fair as it's not required to do end game part of it (5+) and can drop in the very first one. Don't remember getting any from bosses though, all were scamp, marauder or side chests.

      For some odd reason, the furnishing plans and style pages don't drop from the regular boss chests, only from Tho'at's, the scamp with unpronounceable name, marauders and the optional content rewards.

      I’ve gotten half a dozen style pages from three 3-5 arc runs. I hate that they are bound. If they were sellable then at least that would be some reward for me. I just wish the drop rate on the new furnishing plans and book furnishings were higher! I don’t mean that they should all be common but they’re so rare, I would rejoice if I could buy a purple plan for 12k archival currency!

      This is kind of funny to me, I've done the Archive 4 times since the Scions of Ithelia patch came out and I have the entire Nightblade body part complete... The RGN really is a thing, huh? LOL

      Plot twist: It was secretly four times to arc 40 :p

      I wonder if these pages are also a victim of the same once a day rule that it seems like motifs and event style pages follow now.

      I'm happy I made the thread sharing that because I could not imagine how terrible it would be to farm for enough pages, only to find out that you can't get the aura with your planned outfit.

      I’m glad you made that thread too! I have terrible RNG with the page drops (only managed to get one drop after about 20 Arc 1-2 runs), and I would have been devastated if I’d farmed out a full set, only to discover I was locked into five body pieces and always displaying the head piece.

      I’ve ran the IA several times now just for the daily and so far I’ve gotten one style page and two leads for the Torque of the Ayleid King, and none of the wonderful new furnishing plans.

      Let them be rare so they sell high (I have made a lot of gold with them).

      RNG is kind to me. Only run IA once a day and over the past week I've gotten three style pages. Also three leads for the Torque of the Ayleid King and several others.

      I can confirm it's possible to get more than one page in a single day. The drop rate isn't being very generous to me, so imagine my jaw-dropping shock when a second one popped up. Both dropped from the same run, by the way.
