Best way to farm Glowing Fragments

16 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

PSA: If  you happen to get the trophy for killing 10 trophies in a row before you purchase 40 armor skins like i did, you can obtain the rest of the Glowing Fragments needed more easily than playing Survival or Campaign/Adventure on harder difficulties.

 

Roll the Adventure on Corsus until you reach a dungeon called Fetid Pools (the bad luck protection will ensure it won't take that long to find it). Once there, try to find the Rusted Amulet (although it's a quest item, i'm not sure it's a fixed spawn, if it's not there, re-roll until you have both the Fetid Pools and the Rusted Amulet inside it). With it, you can now return to the checkpoint from the beginning of the dungeon and exit your game. 

 

Save your game on the cloud or in a USB flash drive. Restore the save, but only choosing the World Save (don't restore the Character one, otherwise you won't have the Rusted Amulet once you go back into the game). 

 

With that done, go back into the dungeon and you will notice the Rusted Amulet will still be there, with a spare on your inventory. Don't pick the second one, instead, go to one of the acid pools located in a large area of the dungeon and crouch inside it with the amulet equipped. In a few seconds it will turn into the Acid Cleaned Key, that will be necessary to open one of the gates at the end of the dungeon. 

 

To the right of the end checkpoint of the dungeon, there will be a set of locked stairs. Open that gate and go back to the spare Rusted Amulet you saved. Pick it up and obtain the Acid Cleaned Key again (you can't hold more than one key at a time, so if you try to pick up the amulet with another one in your inventory, it will just turn into scrap). 

 

At the top of the stairs, to the right, will be a locked gate containing 25 Glowing Fragments. 

 

Once you get it right, it will take you about 15 minutes restoring your save twice (one to get the amulet, and another one to get to the Glowing Fragments) per run. Just remember to only restore the World save, otherwise you'll lose both the Rusted Amulet and the Glowing Fragments you farmed.

 

If you want to make this even faster, you can have one or two co-op partners with Fetid Pools in their saves, which will also make you obtain other items, such as the Simulacrums or Lumenite Crystals behind the other doors. If you have other doubts to make no mistakes, you can watch the video below: 

 

EDIT: As pointed by @Arcesius, after you do the method above, leave the door opened without picking up the fragments, that way you can quit the game, save your game and keep restoring it without the need to do pick up the keys every time, making it much faster.

Yes, we prepared a save two days ago, where the door to the Fragments is already open. Had no problem restoring the world save and getting the amulet to respawn.

 

Which amulet disappears though when you restore your save.. the one on your character or in the dungeon? Did you disable auto-uploads to the cloud? 

 

 

Also, there is no need to keep getting the amulet in each run. Just open the door to the fragments, quit the game, upload the world save... and now keep collecting the fragments and restoring the world save. The door will already be open.

I would have to download the game again, but I'm not exactly sure what you need help with? If anything, farming is actuall faster solo, since that way you don't need to wait for anyone to join your game each time you re-download your save... There is nothing that requires having a second player doing this with you :)

You can in principle get fragments on hard difficulty and above in through regular campaign play if you own the DLC, but the drop rates are very low. The higher the difficutly, the better the drop rate. They don't drop on normal as far as I know. 

 

Other than that.. Survival mode, and the above mentioned farming method.

So if my noob mind understands correctly your method turns a 2 run process of getting 2 keys in to a 1 Run afair with save manipulation.

Yes. Combine the knowledge from the first post with the subsequent tip from Arcesius below for faster results:

You summoned me? 😅

 

It's really not that complicated. Here are the steps my group followed: 

  1. Find the amulet, but don't pick it up. 
  2. Upload your saves (both world and char) to the cloud. 
  3. Pick up the amulet. 
  4. Restore only the world save. 
  5. Turn the amulet you have on you into a key, and open the first door. 
  6. Pick up the amulet, turn it into the second key, and open the door to the fragments. Don't pick them up. 
  7. Upload your world save to the cloud. 

Now you can pick up the fragments, restore the world save, repeat. We only needed to farm for about an hour to get enough fragments for all skins.

Thank you for clearing it up! This will take alot of grinding off the table since im scared of survivor mode and i was thinking of doing it on normal.
