I Still Highly Doubt It Drops A Crimmy. This Is Another One Of The Scams Like The Strangers. Just To Keep You Looking For Something That Isnt There Instead Of Getting The Real Items. ie pearl necklace a magical lockbox

I spent from midday saturday thru to midnight , and then from 7am Sunday thru to 8pm , pretty much solid, doing Melissa, I got over 35 Scourge, 25 Putre, @ 50 Mucc, strangely only 8 Blight, and YEAHHHY 8 Taint.

I got several minor arties from the paras,

I got 3 necklaces, and 14 cloaks from my 3 accounts

I didnt get anything near a Crimmy, BUT my trusted friend Kaj did get one!!

Defo, he is trustable, very.

Woot, yes she does. I just got one, the first I've ever had drop on me...done dread and mel a million times (or so it seems), and nothing. Just got one off of Melissa!:) The funniest part was I got it with my mule, who had 80 magery and 93 eval casting fireballs at her lol. The legendary smith/tailer scores huge today hehe.

I Would Have To See It To Believe It I Have Spent 2 Days On This Quest With 1200 Luck, Fought Many of Mellissa and Havent Seen One Or Heard Of One Dropping. Guess It Depends On Which Shard Your On

Does it drop on you like normal artifacts? Or is it on the corpse? With ML bosses, you have to take the word of the person who opens the corpse if it was there or not...

Reefer, that is at least two people telling you it happens. Big deal, I, and a lot of other folks, have spent two days as well. Whether you choose to believe it or not is your concern, but two days and 1200 luck doesn't necessarily affect the RNG in your favor. Heck, like I said, I've done a LOT (and I do mean a LOT) of Lady M's and Dread's with no success. You spending two days doing this, in the reality of the game, doesn't mean squat as far as you getting anything. Believe what you want.

It dropped on the corpse..I found it while looting..in fact, when I saw the red I initially thought it was the doublet, then I pulled it up and was like "no f'n way........WOOOT lol".

A quick question in regards to the corpse, and looting it: How are you guys able to open the corpse so fast as to be able to loot anything of value from it? At the point Melissa dies, her corpse is buried under several Greater Dragons, so I slam CTRL-SHIFT, but then I spend 10 seconds getting rid of the names of all the other characters and pets on top of the corpse label. By the time I get to her corpse, there is nothing left of value, let alone a crimmy or doublet. Is there a hotkey or macro you can program for this? And as a semi-related question: At the beginning of the fight, how are you able to target Melissa? Again, I spend forever clearing other names out of the way to grab her life-bar, then attack her by targetting that. By this point, half the damage is already done by the Dragons, and it is a game of catch up... Any advice greatly appreciated, as always!

or you could set up a Target Next (I think it is) macro and just keep hitting button til you get her. And not sure if it still works or not but you used to be able to use Target Last macro and it would show the corpse as your target.

I use Control-Shift and just start closing names until I get her. It doesn't take long if you focus on closing names in the area she's at. A few times I've gotten lucky and caught her in the clear and simply swiped her health bar up. After the kill, I do the same thing..Control-Shift and close bard until I find "a Human Corpse" and open it. If you are in party, it could be your mates looting her for everything before you find her body. She will have her own instance on you if you are not in party. If you are, break party before she dies and you will get your own instance.

Hey, finally I made to the boss room with my lowly stealther. Can't dare to summon Melissa, as there is no one to help (Drachenfels is so lonely). Even the imps can get me with their lowly spells. So I'm hidden and waiting...(no idea for what)

Does Melissa pearl necklase drop into your bag? Also do you have to be on the quest to get it, or can you help out in a chance of getting it once you have completed the quest?

The pearl necklace is in her corpse. You can find it just so long as you get looting rights, if you're quick enough. You can get more than one. Yes, you can continue helping others and will have a chance at martis even, just no more tickets or cloaks.

I got a pearl necklace last night on my 5th Melissa (4 cloaks, once no looting rights).

For those worried about a 'fair share' of the loot: Just like everything else, the corpse is instanced. If you have looting rights, you have a couple minutes to find the corpse in that mess before your 'fair share' can be scavenged by others.

Use AllNames!

Your recieving multiple cloaks on the same char? Or do you mean your getting the robe that melissa wears?

Ironhorse I think he's doing the quest with different characters, and getting the cloaks with each character. I don't know for sure but I think that's what he is referring to.
