This thread is for those who finished IT in any mode (Legendary would be great) and now are busy with farming.

Post here where are the most chances to drop Arcane Formulae.

Where do you farm alot and have a good chance to find those precious relics.

Thanks.

Edit: As I was watching some other posts, I found that Arcane Formulae drops even in Titan Quest vers 1.30. It`s really true?
If the answer is yes, i`ll go back with my 65 lvl char to do some farming.
Waiting for confirmations.

Thanks.


Why should you have to? You know you can go to the Titan Quest areas in Immortal Throne right?

Doing the sick child quest and getting to the 3 judges in hades both give you one formula each, so you might want to do those quests with all your characters.

Well I`m a collector kind of man :) and i wanna have them all hehehehe.


@Infares I found that I can play TQ acts from within It, so, i`ll finish legendary mode in IT then go back in those acts to do some farming and cooking some Divine, Greater, Lesser Artifacts :P

Well, in my relatively few runs of Epic Typhon, he has dropped a lot of formulas. May want to try epic/legendary Typhon.

3 low level formulas in 3 Egypt Telkine runs on normal difficulty last night. Prolly just luck, but he might be a good one to farm for lev 20 or below formulas.

Fairly sure this is not true. There is no place to equip the items in 1.3 and there is no caravan or enchanters. You can have AF drop in any act 1 2 3 4 or 5 but you can not have AF drop in titan quest. Only in IT.

Yeap I figured that out.

Another question though, how we activate the Olympus Portal?

Or its not posible?

Hi All,

I gather from searching around topics on artifacts (specifically lesser ones) that they can be found as early as from Normal Act 1 Telkine, i.e Megalosios.

My question now is: can lesser artifact formulae be found earlier than that? Say on the way to Knossos? What is the earliest point at which lesser artifacts may be found?

I found 2 arcane formula before I even reached Sparta - Normal. Both were for Deathrattle lol.
By the time I had finished Act-1 I had found 2 more arcane formula - Shroud of Eternal Night and Molten Orb. The shroud was the only one that I could acquire all the ingredients for within the 1st act. The other 2 required charms that don't appear until Act-2. Which is fine b/c the Shroud is the best of the bunch for my Harbringer.

So you can definately find formulae as early as the very beginning of Act-1.

I did some heavy farming in the last days, most of all on Typhon (normal, epic and legendary) They gave me most of the formulaes I found. I`m interested now for lesser Artifacts because I`ve opened a thread with a guide about lesser artifacts. Check it here http://www.titanquest.net/forums/immortal-throne-spoilers/14085-lesser-artifacts-guide-screenshots.html

I got Shroud of Eternal Night from Nessus chest (but had to wait till Rhakotis for venom sac). Another Shroud formula dropped somewhere in Old Eleusis.

So yes, they can drop pretty early on.

I farm the overlord's passage. need 6 more formulae to get them all: dragontongue, lioheart, soul shiver, amber flask, thoth's glory, andmarduk's tablet 2 normals, 2 epics, and two legendaries. I had soul shiver, amber flash, and dragon tongue, but i used them to make aftifacts. The only one's i've never seen are lionheart, thoth's glory, and marduk's tablet.

I farm normal typhon and act 2 telkine with no luck :/
Any ideas?

Wheres a good place to dig up the runes for these things? Random runs or do they drop more so in certain places, like the monster charms?

DirtySanchez

There's a sticky at the top of the page that deals specifically with that.

Besides quest rewards in IT I have found that they drop fairly frequently off of Typhon, in either normal or legendary.

Must be nice to get Formulae early. I didn't get my first one, until I'd played my new character all the way into IT :( Then they seemed to start coming from everywhere at once :)

griid
03-25-2007, 02:59 AM
yes they can find earlier than that i found 1 after i killed the boss satyr in the first quest.

After some 30 runs on the last Telkine, on Wussao Mountain, in the Typhon Prison, I could make a conclusion: if you have patience the last Telkine can be verry rewarding with Arcane Formulae (lesser, greater).

In about 30 runs, it droped around 8-10 formulae`s, maybe more. So, patience, and a lot of farming.

Edit: This post is also in the sticky post here http://www.titanquest.net/forums/immortal-throne-spoilers/14098-relic-charm-farming-2-0-a.html

Nice level breakdown on the artifacts. Now if Lucifer uses that for his spreadsheet here
http://tqpackrat.byethost7.com/XMLFile.xml that would leave maybe only the special effects descriptions to make it complete.

I saw the list Lucifer has made. If it finds this list interesting in some way, he can used fine.

Now, I have some problems in finding the first four Lesser Arcane Formulae:
Deathrattle - Lvl 5
Molten Orb - Lvl 5
Scroll of Oneiros - Lvl 5
Wraith Gurad - Lvl 5

It seems that bosses don`t drop them. I did some farming on first Telkine in Minoan Labirynt with no luck at all.
Anyone could give me a tip where to point my attention?

With a new char, I found the Wraith Guard in the cave that you do the quest for the Dowry Necklace. Molton Orb came from the Centaur boss (or one of his chests) after the Spartan camp.

These are exactly 4 Formulae which I got (except for Quest Completion) - All of them found in Normal Egypt and Greece while trying to farm some relics :)

Well, Razor Claw I think I found it when I farmed Typon in normal mode. But, try farming Telkine Act 3 too.

This post is about arcane formulae, not about Easter Eggs (i.g letters).

There is a thread that cover that. Go search it this section of Immortal Throne Spoilers. Hard to miss.

Bluesky - if it helps, I got a Scroll of Oneiros from normal Typhon.

blue_orneau, I got one Razor Claw off of a Jackalman in normal egypt. :)

Normal Typhon really is indeed a good source so far.

I got a Razor Claw formula in Normal Egypt too!
It was from a Scorpios in Sandswept cave though.
Hmm... coincidence or is there some kind of pattern? :neutral:

Not sure if you're still looking for them but if you are try farming nessus, cyclops and the spider queen. I farmed them quite a few times in order to get my wraithguard. As they are the lowest level formulae I don't think the greek telkine can drop them, at least he has never done so for me, he always drops the lv10-15 ones when I farm him.

Can anybody tell me where their phylactery of shadows dropped from? I farmed epic greece and I got all the other lesser lv35 forumlae several times over but never that one. My warden is just gone to epic egypt now so maybe I'll have better luck there.

Not sure if patterns are likely in TQIT, but while leveling up in the Athens battlegrounds just before the ransacked village on Legendary several times I found the same artifacts of Tyrants Fist and Thunderfist both from the Boarman at least 3 or 4 times each.

The only pattern I have noticed is that you often get the same formula dropped twice in a row.

It has gotten to the stage that I skip the act4 optional quests that give formulae until I find a good one during normal adventuring. I still do the judges on cue to move forwards and I sometimes do the sick child as well, but the torchlighters gauntlet often gets done after I've killed Hades and ransacked his treasury... ;)
