So I just beat GR 70 with my dude and i hear it unlocks primal items. Problem is, took me a long ass time to finish it so farming for them would be very inefficient. So do I have to keep farming GR70 and up in order for primals to have a chance to drop? or are they droppable everywhere once gr70 is defeated. If i farm 60 instead of 70 will they drop and also will they drop for my other characters or do my other characters have to beat gr70 as well. thx
It is worth noting that the higher the level, the greater the chance of one dropping, but there really isn't any way to farm primals, they just don't drop frequently enough no matter what you are doing. So while running 60s will give you that chance for one, your odds increase as you increase your difficulty level. But efficiency > level. Not to worry though, no matter what class you are playing, you should have the gear to be farming 70s in no time. Just don't be surprised when you see the red outline of the primal only to realize that it is a piece that you would never use, the ultimate letdown. I have gotten a couple of pieces that I actually had as part of a build, but the stats that came on them were so bad, I couldn't use them. Nothing you can do but salvage it, at least you get something for it.
Cool note though on primals. Every roll is set at max, so enchanting and re-enchanting them is super easy. I had a primal String of Ears drop while on my wizard, and I logged in with my Barb and enchanted it to replace the Int that came on it over to Str, and it is one badass piece. And if I had the use for it on my wizard, I could just enchant it again and put the Int back on it. That is definitely a huge plus to getting a useful Primal.
