Pherliac Pods... where are they?

Recommended Posts

It's absolutely horrendous trying to farm for Pherliac Pods for the quest 'The Jordas Precept' because their drop chance is lower than any other item that a Juggernaut could possibly drop. After running through an Infested Extermination mission on Eris nearly 20 times and encounter and defeating the Juggernaut every time, I still have not received them. What gives? This is incredibly unforgiving to expect players to farm for it when it's just one component of the quest, and the player is later expected to gather Potent Pherliac Pods. I just don't see why this hasn't been patched yet.

The potent pherliac pods only require the pherliac pods and an argon crystal, the blueprint is given to you through an inbox message.  The Pherliac Pods bp is the rarest of the drops, and then you factor in RNG so some people get it easily, others take 50+ runs.

The drop rate is insane, I wound up having a friend taxi me to the boss fight just so I could get Atlas.  tbh I don't know of anyway to speed up the process, you just have to keep farming Jugger.

I mean, Howl of the Kubrow is (was?) no different. "Find a Kubrow egg. Where? Well, you can either grind for days or buy one from the market."

Pherliac Pods aren't a drop.  You should have gotten a recipe for it when you started the Jordas Precept.

The 4 items you actually need to get from Juggernauts are: 1 Pulsating Tubercles, 1 Infected Palpators, 1 Chitinous Husk, and 1 Severed Bile Sac.  These items (plus 7.5k credits) are used to make 50 Pherliac Pods.  Juggernauts always drop one of these items.

The Juggernaut drops the blueprint and the materials needed to build it. Just as @VGPowerlord said. Check your foundry - if you've ran it 30 times, you might have what you need by now. It's under the gear section. If not, then keep plugging away until you get it.

I didn't get the bp after I started the quest. Is it a bug?

Just tried doing this over the weekend.  This is the kind of thing that makes me want to quit warframe until I realize I don't have to do it at all.  I'll just wait until Atlas Prime comes out and I will simply never do this Jordas crap.  Worst questline and worst RNG ever.  Ironically I have killed Jugg a ton of times already because I can see all the materials I have gathered to make the pods, I've just never gotten the BP.  This also doesn't count the dozens of time I've killed him in ODC, didn't get the drop, and quit out of the mission.

Not to mention that once you're done with that you have a terribad archwing mission.  I helped some friends run it (since I can't and i hear the jugg in the mission can drop the bp), #1 the mission feels like the Golem has its own gravity field, I will fly behind the guy and get sucked into his butt.  Fine.  Also doesn't help the guy is an insane bullet sponge.  The only way DE could possibly make the fight worse is if he had an invulnerability stage.

After 6 long months of killing the Juggernaut, I have finally received the pherliac pods blueprint. I broke into tears just from the sight of it. You must stay strong and believe! :')

I've killed 40 Juggernauts so far attempting to complete this quest. DE, is there a possibility that there is a bug relating to the blueprint dropping? I understand the idea of having someone grind to complete the quest, but this is honestly making me mad.

 

No sooner than I post this, but #42 drops the BP.

Go solo into exterminate derelict, basically you'll run into a juggernaut every run.. use a slash based melee weapon for bringing out the juggernaut faster.

They must have changed the drop rates for the quest because when i did it i got like 5 in the first run. Unless i was completely lucky.

That comment is over a year old, I'm willing to bet they've changed.

Not to mention; you have to wait 8 hours for the Pherliac pods to get out of Foundry! So after the looooooooong grind for the parts, you have to wait 8 to use them.

It's as if DE wants us to go do something else with our lives for a while???
