Reading posts about the event, some indicate that it’s blissfully easy to just go in with direct damage battle items and weaken the bosses that way.
A bit of a flaw in that idea for me is my lack of Meteors. I farm every day (not obsessively, admittedly) and find myself massively constrained by midnight roots. They are an ingredient for both mana potions (which I always use / need in tough encounters) and Meteor (which would be really handy to get through over-tough encounters).
The meteors are also handy as direct damage / weakeners in Titan fights (although I’ve stopped using them, because, you know… midnight roots).
You’re meant to have enhanced chance to get them in region 22 of the map (which is not the simplest to play, and is expensive in energy), but I can easily go runs of 6 consecutive fights in that region for the total of ZERO midnight roots.
Am I missing some secret way of procuring midnight roots (assuming F2P)? Am I just insanely unlucky?
