Okay, I'm getting really sick and tired of this. I've spent 20+ hours trying to find those witches and nothing. Did the 21-40 and reset tactic work for you? Did the muscle tactic work for you? Did the high ranking item work for you? I'd really like to know what did since I'm about to pull out my hair.
Yeah, the Jolly Pirates was one of the last I had to farm for LoC (my very last one was the Animal pirates). I did use the 21-40 reset thing, but it still took quite some time (it wasn't even near 20+ hours, but still a considerable amount). I gave up at some point and came back every now and then (I had to farm for specialists as well), so I only have a vague idea on how much time it actually took. At that point, I was only going at high rank items, so I can't tell how much of a difference (if any at all) a low rank item would make. And I never discovered if certain types of items actually had a higher/lower chance of having specific pirates (neither by experience or by some proof here in the boards).
Keep trying (but do take a break every now and then) and pray to the RNG God. Since you posted this here, it's highly probable that you're going to find them pretty soon. :j
To be honest, I suppose it's only been about 17 if I were to count the 2nd to hardest for me; the Hunter Pirates. To this day, post killing those bastards, I've only seen them one more time. I envy you when it comes to the hardest being the Animal Pirates since they weren't hard to get for me. Even now, I envy those who can't find the Z's, Red's or Prism's. The Prism's don't show up that often, but if I had a nickel for every Z or Red I've seen I'd be rolling in HL. In the higher levels, the Z is almost as common as the Ambling.
I've given up on the lower ranking items quite a long time ago. I figured when I started leveling the Arcadia, the Jolly's would pop up...NOPE! Sexy panties...NOPE! I'm still using nothing but legendary's, but I suppose it's a matter of luck (which it is) and I've done something to anger the NIS god's. A break is probably a great idea and maybe I should try the 21-40 tactic.
Thank you for your reply demonguardian.
To the others who might read this, could I get some other advice. I gladly accept all of it even if it costs me my own dignity. Thanks for reading. -Chris
