What's the best way to get Legend of Acrius' Catalyst?
I'm down to the last 2 weeks and nearly at my wits' end. I've seen this question asked over and over on different websites and answered differently, and would really appreciate it if someone could set the record straight [u]in detail[/u].
I [i]know[/i] that according to Bungie that Exotics and the catalysts were not part of the uncapped loot, and have stated in no mistakeable terms that "these rewards are not farmable."
At the same time, I have witnessed in my own fireteam a guy, farming the Castellum chest, on the same character, and he got the catalyst the [b]second[/b] time opening it.
These two things seem to contradict each other, and it especially frustrates me because I don't know what I'm supposed to be spending my time on. Do I make/join LFGs for grinding one chest in the hopes of getting it, like I've experienced? Do I make/join full runs on all 3 characters for these last 2 weeks, and pray to RNGesus that I get it?
I need to hear from others on how they got theirs, or anyone who can confirm/deny observing what I observed. If any developers/staff read this, I'd appreciate a detailed explanation and the best way to get it, in the little time I have.
If nothing else, bump if you want this question answered too.
It's impossible to open the chest on the same character and get a drop after completing the encounter.
What I did (when I had weeks to spare) was do Castellum on each of my characters (3x a week) if I didn't get it, wait to next week. Now if it was a week where dogs was the first encounter, I would run all three characters through castellum [i]and[/i] dogs because it's super easy and fast.
My best best advice is do 3 full runs on prestige levi for more chances at the catalyst. ( from what I understand, catalyst only drop from encounter chest. So castellum, Dogs, Gauntlet, Baths, and Calus.)
