chak eggs and chak weapons

I am trying to do the chak weapons set and read about the hows of getting my hands on those cool weapon skin. So I just did the 'Buried Insight' again and got no rewards upon completion. Like no chest no nothing. I have been opening chak acid chest on the map for days, took out some chak bosses, partake in map events and running around tangled depths, and my inventory has just 01 chak egg? Each chak weapon need least 3 chak eggs and about 500 ley crystals. I find the drop rate for chak eggs to be extremely low and not enough. Please help or make adjustment to that map or more ways to chak eggs. Drop rate has got to be higher.

    Rewards from story are once per character.

    Easiest way is to just do the Gerent meta over and over.

    Can get one daily from the meta chest https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Tangled_Depths:_Hero's_Choice_Chest

    If you pvp or wvw most of the time you can run the Heart of Maguuma track for the Chak weapons which saves you 3-5 chak eggs each

    Or 1, 5 or 10 from completion https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gerent's_Chest

  • The Maguuma Jungle reward track (I believe that's what it's called) gives you all the HoT weapons at the end chest. If you have it unlocked, don't waste resources farming for the weapons.

    It's the Tangled Depths Reward Track: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Tangled_Depths_Reward_Track

    and it provides 1 weapon per completion out of the Chak Gerent Cache at the end (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Chak_Gerent_Cache), not all of them.

    Given the cost of the weapons, if would make sense to acquire a 2handed weapon from the reward chest as to reduce the cost for future weapons required for the collection.

    Thanks for the many responses. So I activated Magumma Waste on both WVW and PVP tracks, and it is going so slow. So many chaks at Tangled Depths none want to drop chak eggs. Do something about it Anet else chak weapons is hard to collect

    The chaks themselves don’t drop the eggs, using chak acid on the crystallised supply caches can give you them with a low drop rate, the meta end chest with garaunteed drop but varying quantities and zinns research supplies but that’s a once a day box which isn’t worth the effort put in, the bonus chest from some events can drop them but even lower drop rate than supply caches imo.

    It doesn't matter how long it takes to achieve something, its not the end result that matters, its the journey you take to get there.

    Maguuma Waste is a completely different thing from Heart of Maguuma Reward Track

    In order to access Heart of Maguuma Reward Track you need to finish the VB, AB and TD tracks first.

    That is my point as well. There just too few chak eggs. =(

    There is none since your completing the wrong track.

    It appear your "Chak Killer - Master" is bugged?
    The AB and TD tracks not even showing on my doable tracks.

    Have you finished the Verdant Brink reward track? From what I recall, you have to do the VB track to unlock the AB track, which will in turn unlock the TD track.

    Just fin VB starting on th AB now. :s
    Reinforced metal plate is another one it is quite the problem getting these eggs and plates

  • Ayrilana.1396Ayrilana.1396 Member ✭✭✭✭

    For the plates, just buy the rare weapons off the TP if you’re impatient and salvage them. The rares have a 100% drop rate for the plates. Make sure you’re buy the correct weapon set though.
