    Where did you find your FA symbol?

    Ran last night 10 skraids. Dropped 3 symbols: 2 from way of smith last boss loot(not chest!) 12 man skraid.

    And you guys?

    What tier out of interest?

    Tier III, obviously. They don't drop from lower tiers.
    Feailuve - Aeviternus - Vesanus

    Do you have to do skraids in order to get the chance at the drop?

    As friends showed me the best way to get them would be to do Moria skraids at t3,the bosses there drop them fairly often.We were alternating between Way of Smiths and 21st and for example yesterday got 7 symbols out of 3 runs so I highly suggest those for farm.

    Only Raids?

    So, there's no chance to get them in a tier 3 solo skirmish? The release notes don't specify. Is it only seen dropped in 12 man raids?

    Indeed there is not. Only Tier III skirmish raids, Big Battle platinum rewards, and a very small chance on Tier II raids.

    Yep got mine from Way of the Smiths T3 the other night, now have a FA 2-handed sword for my cappy. 21st Hall last boss is a little harder so I'm seeing lots of PUGed WOS T3 in glff on Firefoot. Can anyone think of any other "boss-body" skraids we might try? WOS gets boring after that 4th or 5th run.

    Anyone tried Prancing Pony? Protectors of Thangulhad troll? Drop rate seems to be about 1 symbol per 12 man run. I did see 2 drop in one run and then we have had cases of less than 12 people (10 man or 9 man) where none dropped.

    Big Battle Platinum rewards? Solo/Duo or only the 12 man raid?

    I got mine in Way of Smiths also, Tier 3. Nice side benefit is that the Moria skraids are helping finish off some remaining Moria slayer deeds.

    A platinum reward is a platinum reward is a platinum reward. It doesn't matter what BB it comes from.

    Way of the Smiths T3 12-man seems to be the way to go. Seen one drop in every run, with the occassional two once in a while.

    Yeah, it seems this is the general consensus as Way of the Smiths now is run so often on my server it even got a 3-letter abbrivation in global

    Be quick though, the extra-loot from this skirm has not been noticed before (who would run it without FA's dropping?) so it might classify as a bug and be removed like the BfE-dissaster...

    I must be super unlucky... Yesterday I ran Necro and Ringwraths. Zero symbols.

    Ran 4 Way of Smiths. One symbol.

    6 skraids, 12 ppl, 1 symbol...

    Did yesterday four runs of Way of Smith T3. In first run dropped 3 symbols, 4 symbols in second, 1 symbol in third and zero in fourth. Got one symbol and four crystals myself.

    Ran 4 or 5 WoS. I got one 1st age SEK, 1 crystal and 1 or 2 Celebrimbors. (Gave the elder king symbol to the raid leader/ex-kinnie-he deserved it for the patience to lead 5 pugs in a row!)

    If I get another I'll keep that one even though I won't get a new first age set up as well as my current second agers before the next update on this character-she doesn't have buckets of shards, medallions or TPs. And she heals mostly. So it isn't that necessary. But new Shinies are always nice!

    Got mine from Way of Smiths on the second run. Then I stopped running the skraids because if its that easy to get a first age there's clearly no point in one

    UNfortunately you are quite correct, the funny thing is that there is/was no mention in this thread about OD Disease Wing, even though it has been taken down now due to being farmed excessively for 1st agers.
    Personally I regularly saw 4 or 5 1st age symbols drop in there before it came down which makes a joke of the Loot table saying they are Very Rare in Raids!

    All pretty irrelevant anyway as the OP suggests they are not needed for current game, I mean c'mon End Game is the Fail BB system, does a 1st ager help you direct engineers or officers any better?

    If they ever take their heads out of the sand and give us Raid content again then 1st agers will have a purpose once more...and hopefully be at least as hard to obtain as they were at 75

    Yesterday I got 2 FA Symbols. One from WoS (already got three out of this skirm having done it 18 times) and one from a three-man Glittering Caves as a reward for a side quest.

    In fact I'm not impressed at all as they seem to drop like candy.
    My first FA Minstrel songbook I gave away as a present cause the legacies were not useful and I already got my second symbol.
    For me its harder to get Medaillons and Seals because noone is doing anything else than WoS.
    What a pity
    I still remember getting my first Lvl 65 FA symbol. They were rare and you had to do a great job with your raid to have a chance to get them.
    I was happy the whole day and even the day after.

    Today I just say: Oh! Nice.

    I got an FA symbol from Barad Guldur raid. Three dropped actually but I gave mine away to the other raid member since she spent 4 hours on the raid and I only joined on the last boss.

    On one of the best BB runs ever I got a gold earring, gold bracelet, and FA symbol for my duo mate.

    WOS run.
