    (Note that I play SEA, but this should work on global as well.
    Also, someone correct me if this method has already been shown.)

    This is a great alternative to deleting characters every time you pass Ariant/Magatia (not sure when OSS start dropping) if you're farming Regular Spirit Stones.

    Note that while dungeons drop both RSS and RSSS, in my experience the drop rate is quite low, even after running Mu Lung dungeons for RSSS drops. This method farms Regular Spirit Stones, but not their Special variants.

    This method revolves around the fact the the Bloody Boom enemy (the mines at the Aqua Road paths to other cities) does not give XP, but drops Regular Spirit Stones.

    You will need:


    - A character that is ~lvl 40 (I used my level 41 Merc, I believe ABs will work well due to SS mechanics)

    - Access to any map with Bloody Boom enemies (I used the Crystal Sea Path)

    - An item pet to pick up the stones

    - For Mercs, at least +2 earrings

    -For other classes with AOE damage through skills only: Appropriate equipment for MP pots and/or regen
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 1: Start by putting yourself in a position where you will be able to hit multiple Bloody Booms. I spammed Speed Dual Shot in this spot.

    Step 2: Attack such that it kills multiple Bloody Booms. For Mercs, it will be spamming Speed Dual Shot.

    Step 3: Summon item pet to collect all, and flip auto your attack.

    I hope this guide helped you on your road to meister crafting.

    El nath dungeon usually nets enough RSS to cover RSSS cost in my experience, but may be different for SEA

    With my Xenon, getting RSSS is a breeze due to the fact that I'm still farming at Ariant.
    And as said, this method is purely farming RSS and may be a waste of time if you can do the dungeons. However in my experience the el nath dungeon makes me get stuck every now and then if you AC, and the mu lung one gives way too little RSS to be worth autoing. Haven't really ran the Orbis ones yet, will try after my Xenon no longer drops regular stones.
    Do you have an item pet while farming? Get one, it's great for getting all the drops as well as some item inventory upgrades if you plan on keeping the character.

    congrats...!! one more step towards master crafter huh...?

    go farm in the higher lvl dungeons... can try starting with the orbis 3rd dungeon - tower of hidden loot and see how fast u can farm osss there... test out the higher lvl dungeons and compare... continue to farm at which ever dungeon that gives u the fastest rate of osss...

    meanwhile... when u are afk... go AC farm at hidden map... get a pink dragon pet for that otherwise it's going to be very slow...

    u mean the orbis 3rd map... yeah drop rate is low... but mobs are easy to kill... and there are only 2 maps... u are xenon ur navigation should be quite ok as u can use skills to jump... that map not so friendly for classes with bad jumping abilities like shade....

    but u can try higher lvl maps too... best is if u can handle gorge of time and wind (lvl 112)... it's relatively small map with not bad drop rates... but if u cannot kill the mobs fast then u are better off in lower lvl maps...

    oh another tip is... if u don't plan to hunt for rares... then skip the boss part and quit the dungeon b4 the boss... u farm osss faster this way...

    that sounds fine... when u reach lvl150 u could reset the skills and opt out rockets...

    btw xenon is hard to AC w/o meister eqs when u reach LKC... my xenon had full set of lvl140 rares and couldn't AC at LKC (even after the nerf in mobs) ... end up i needed pet to auto pot HP to AC....
