Alright, so be ready for a loooooong haul if you are actually trying now guys. I have been following my strategy of farming Scarabs in Caergate. I'm up to about 40 total flowers, somewhere around 20 hours of grinding, and literally thousands of Scarabs. This level of farming took me from about 43% of the way through lv. 26 to about 26% of the way to the absolute cap, (100% at 29). It is exhausting, it is stressful, and the baskets are just not putting out. What I can tell you is you should take breaks while farming. (i.e. Bloodstar/Titan/BC whatever tickles your fancy.)
I tried grinding for about 2 hours in non PvP areas with no luck. I also want to note that Pink heather seems to be the least likely to drop. I'm at something like 14 Poppy's 12 Roses 13 Clovers and 11 Heathers. However there is an upside, I promise! Firstly the drops, from Scarabs, and only Scarabs, I have received a rare RG Cyberskin armor for my Whipper, 5 Jack's (♣) and countless rare high level armor for every class. (Which I preceded to give away because I don't need them.) As well as a rare scout trinket.
On one last note, the Teddy that you can get, (and that I will get because I've invested too much time to give up, period.) is an item that only people willing to spend 200$ have prior to this event. broken down the Teddy (Silly though this is) is an item worth somewhere between 100-175$ So the DR now makes sense to me. Feel free to message me in game (Amellia, RG, Andromeda) or on the site if you have any questions. I would love to help everyone who wants one to get it!
