    Currently 351, I stopped intentionally collecting after 300 because I have 4 daily 24 hour boxes going. Maybe I should go for the last one?

    How exactly do you collect the monster for the collection? I mean I played for hours yesterday and only just collected one monster for the collection. It was ridiculous. I mean is there a certain number i have to kill or what?!

    I just need Hawkeye for the chair now. Didn't register during sengoku, and I've been running full Empress 3 times a week for months now.

    Lower leveled monsters, such as those on Victoria Island and "Near" Victoria Island, have a high chance of being added. Pre-V Luminous was great for collecting monsters in 4th job with Reflection, since you hit so many monsters from a stationary spot, although I'm sure now it's okay for collecting. High leveled monsters are harder to collect, so if you're just starting your collection, go around Victoria Island.

    It's hilariously absurd that the most time consuming and absolute hardest page to complete only gets you 5 meso sacks.

    In my experience, the Arcane River mobs seem to have a higher than normal add-rate compared to other monsters.
    But yeah, considering Lucid and her summons are on that page, meso sacks is a terrible reward.

    Added normal vellum yesterday. That pushed me to 100 monsters on vic island, so I got the medal now. :)

    EDIT:
    I cried, because I spawned this, but it didn't add to collection:

    It seems they finally added some Monster Blooms with this update. My friend got a Horntail Monster Bloom during 2x last night, but didn't think to screen shot it.

    I did :D



    Don't think it's just from this patch though since I got mine the last week of October, during the Secret Stories patch.

    Edit: Oh wait, mine is CHT. Don't have HT. :(

    May I ask how you were able to get this monsterbloom :O also with new updates to the game has nexon given us any tips or insight of getting Elite monsterblooms and such? Filling up those ones are the biggest pain and struggle D:

    I kill HT and CHT almost everyday for RP. They just dropped. Other monsterblooms are from completing sets. I got the ice golem monster bloom from finishing a set in El Nath.

    Hope that helps.

    Dang it must have a seriously low drop rate because I've also been doing HT and CHT almost everyday for RP as well and it never dropped a bloom for me :( I wonder if % item drop rate would increase the chance of getting a bloom hmmm

    All RNG, my friend. I got CPB after killing the first body, PB took me months. I was so happy when I got it that I took a screenshot of the notice. CHT and HT blooms were also months apart.

    As for drop rate, I'm not sure as I have no droprate gear.

    DANG Super gratz to him for hitting 600! For RP I just collect the Ephenia and Xerxex set in every world alliance (Currently have 3 Substantial boxes in Scania, 2 in Bera, and 1 in Windia, Reboot, Broa/Khaini, MYBCKN, and GRAZED). This gives me a lot more RP without the extra work of collecting monsters to expand the number of sets you can explore :D

    Are the official knights from the starforce maps? Or doesn't it matter if they are starforce monsters or not?

    The official monster name is something like "[*]Official Knight A" or whatever, so technically I believe it does matter. This is more obvious when you look at the Kentaurus monsters, some of which are Star Struck, others are not.
