Confirmed Swiftmantle drop in Freeing an Elder [68+] today, 7/17/2017, off a drachnid champion

Took 3 instance attempts though.

Props to my guildy Shortmanoncampu (whom this info was gleaned from)

Unexpectedly Quick Drop
# Dec 31 2015 at 3:22 PM Rating: Excellent
After reading this section I thought I'd be in for many attempts but was surprised to have it drop on my first mission.

Confirming that it drops from Elder #1 on normal (66+) difficulty. Instant click is a plus but the duration is fairly short so balance that against Orb of Suspension or the Ball of Fluffy Cotton.

Ball of fluffy cotton. 100 station cash. Yeah, a whole dollar. Saving hours and hours of killing things you don't really want to kill.

Actually, the Swiftmantle is more of a raid item. Not a raid drop, but with a cast of 0.0 its the only levitation item that can defeat anti-lev AE procs off various raid mobs. So if your raiding, it really nice to have. Not an essential raid gear item, but very handy.

Thanks for the tip! Far easier than farming this instance over and over.

Going on probably 15 zone clears and still no drop yet. Shiliskin Trickster's Mask took about this long, maybe less.

What do you think loot rights to this would go for today?
one clearing
# Dec 02 2010 at 5:42 AM Rating: Decent
I cleared the entire instance (except for one drachnid that walked off a bridge and disappeared to the nether - could see him on tracking, but nowhere to be found). The 2nd to last mob (excluding taskmaster and his event) dropped it for me. I spent a few hours clearing the zone. There must be hundreds of mobs in there.

Instant clicky lev was worth it, though. Also got about 30 AAs on my druid haha.

My first clear, about 90% through the clear (I was halfway through cocoon/spire #3).

Dropped off a Drachnid Infiltrator in Normal Mission - three people in group, all level 85.

Self only, must be equipped. With max click extension AA, the click lev lasts 18.00 minutes.

Good luck!

Went through this mission once and beat it to get access to LS-2. Burned through field, tower1, tower2, Reanimation Chamber and Orcs 13 times before I finally got Water Ele mask to drop.

So I start working on getting Swiftmantle, thinking maybe it will be easier than Shiliskin Trickster Mask was, but boy was I wrong.

17th mission so far, still no sign of it.

Keep at it. I have probably gotten about 7 swiftmantles and 4 masks in my time farming these missions. If you dont get one I will look to see if you are on if i decide to farm this zone for the trash loot for plat.
