0.13% drop chance, and you need 3 of them? Are you f***ing insane?
Goddamn it. Who thought it'd be a good idea to have RNG drops tied to awards like this?

The holy weapons Astra, Luna, and Sol. Sword, bow, and lance respectively.

They're not all that good, but eh.

For time-consuming reasons like this, I don't really care about ingame/platform awards or trophies. That's not to say I wouldn't spend thousands of hours on a single game, though.
Please.

I generally find them fun, but not when they're incredibly annoying, time-consuming and unrewarding like this one...

Exactly, which shouldn't matter if you don't care about numbers or the blank spaces in an in-game award sheet. It's this "100% completion" in games that I have gripes with. I also enjoy challenges so long as they're reasonably awarding, but when it comes to pointless sinkholes I just pass. I couldn't care less what the game or internet thinks about it.

I've sure had my fair share of simply grinding for the heck of it years ago. Back then it was somewhat fun, especially in doing so with friends. I've just had gone through too much by now and as a result I'm way more behind my backlog than I should. Lol. I'd much rather replay a game with an self-imposed challenge nowadays.

Give me my life back.
Please.

I know, it's utterly ridiculous
Things like this should be tied strategy or skill and should never be tied to something the player has no control over
It's even worse since after about 4 tries you have to leave and go all the way through Thabes again just for another measly 4 tries
If no one comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it really be?

That's not quite true, at least for Astra.

Astra is a drop from the Garuda, i.e. the golden shiny Gargoyle. And if you run through all of Thabes and don't rush the final map... there's nothing that says you can't grind for it there.

I'm not sure what other enemies drop the other weapons, so I'll ask around and see if anyone else knows.

An update of sorts, as promised.

Rusted Luna, the lance, drops from Wights, the rare Fiend-type Terror, and the rusted Sol drops from the rare Mogall. All three of which can (I think) be found on the final floor of Thabes; barring that, the Balor (rare Mogall) can be spawned in Duma Temple, Area 2; Duma Tower, Area 4; and the Secret Shrine.

I wish you luck, TC. They only have a 10% chance of spawning, and they have unknown spawn conditions as well. But you can just hit the Mila Statues and come back to roll again.

Honestly, I've just been running the Astral or whatever it's called DLC, but I should probably try that method instead. Cheers.
