I got a card about 2 minutes ago, they definitely exist. Task tells me to talk to Statham on Hurricane Island...
I've been afking these Soldiers on Columbus now for 9+ hours and have yet to get the card.... Pretty darn low percentage, but I guess what IGG wanted... Thanks for making us all happy until we try and get the drops.
So we got 3 new ways to obtain legendary general
1)French soldier in New Amsterdam : Which is ok since you can afk there 24/7 and if you lucky you get few
2) Iron Hand Smuggling Ships: Worst option since too many zonning and waiting
Both options the drop rate is very low But the 3rd option is intresting
3)One of High Sea Bosses Drop rate 70% no one know for sure yet which boss is it But i think It is the Longest spawn time one why?
To make sure legendary general does not drop like a candy. So i bet it is the General Cruz
19 hour spawn time with 70% drop rate each server will get 5 ish per week
So my advice stop killing sea bosses that spawn to fast waste of time
Tonite( acording to my time) I ve grappled Bartho and Hawkins in MMP server and I was not able to get legendary general clue from them. If we accept FoK gave right tips about this puzzle with his proper English , I think I did marveolus job. Somehow I put myself into share of %9 . This can be seen often in this game . Like upgrading your gears 3 times with %75 and all fails ( probability %1,6) But I suggest one thing to SaMajeste. grapling an Iron hand takes more time to kill a French soldiers. Also French soldiers spawn 7/24 but Iron hands spawn only between 21-05 according to game time. he may say "french soldiers are hard to kill iron hand is easy to kill" etc.. But there is another unknown thing too. Probability of gettin 4 stars or 5 stars general. So if you raise up drop rate of IronHand a bit more player will hunt Ironhands. Otherwise only certain players can be seen on the tails of HS bosses and on the front of New amsterdam.
so far it seems 2 card from Soldiers in New Amsterdam, 0 from high sea pirate kings and 0 from Iron Hand Smuggling ships....
@FunofKing maybe droprate really should be increased at Iron Hand Smuggling ships .... PeterPanisBack is correct they spawn not all day long and when spawn they come slower then NA mobs...
Also you need get a 5 star general and one with the skill you want or atleast sea/land what you need..... so 1% is especially on the smuggling ships not enough.... maybe 1-2% at NA mobs and 4-5% at smuggling ships would be good/better
ofc should be a bit rare but that is insane like this, ppl can not farm 10+ hrs/day general + farm new instance+farm old instance for money +crete+ BG.... we just humans
we need more alternatives to farm cause 2 places are very tight to do it .why not put it in BF nad porto land and sea even it is like 1% drop rate or have the drop rate spread to pumas in james town also
