Expertise Runes from fishing

Expertise Runes from fishing

By googling I found out that you can get these runes through fishing and to be more exact with whale oil. What I want to know is if they are easy to obtain. I have many OE'd D-C-B-A gear for my alts, will they be worthless once Valiance hits us?

The usual way to obtain Whales is via the Golden Girl, and there you get them with a high (높음) probability:

Apart from that you can also catch Whales on Fantasy Island:

So in theory there should be no shortage of Whales, at least on Innova servers. With the doubly nerfed rates on NCWest servers no one can predict how the situation will be there.


Talking about drop rates, in Taiwan it has turned out that the Ancient Tomes of the Demon on Hellbound are quite rare:

RevengeSaint's post of today sounds like the situation in Korea:

This means that recipes for higher level materials will continue to be expensive.

Somewhere in the later patches I saw that both the chance of getting whales will be nerfed and the chance of getting a whale oil out of it. So let's say will orfen, ant queen and baium be farmed with r-grade and above equipment from now on?

Any new info regarding this issue? From what I understand they will be quite common and easy to obtain.

All I can tell you is that those Expertise Runes exist, that they are being used in Korea, and that there are no complaints about them, neither about them being hard to obtain, nor about them ruining the market.

Those Expertise Runes were introduced at a time when it was still planned to raise the level cap on the subclasses to 99. But no one will be removing a painstakingly achieved Damage Reflect Augment from an R99 weapon to send it to a low level alt. The Expertise Runes are only useful for those players who have first rushed to 99 without bothering with subclasses and now want to fill those up.
