I'm just making this quickie forum in order to gather some notes regarding Tequatl Hoard drops! As I would imagine from Google searching, they've typically seemed to have risen from the Exotic Form of Dragon Chest that is available once a day per account— but the wiki states to yield possibility that Tequatl Hoards can in fact sprout from the Dragon Chest that spawns on map as the Tequatl Trophy Chest (which can be obtained once a day per character instead). As a creator of a character who has come to near exclusively use Sunless weapons for my Thief/Holosmith (i.e., Dagger, Revolver, Staff, Rifle, and Spear..), I have high motivation to follow any leads that can increase my Tequatl Hoard drop chances.
TLDR; Has anyone ever recalled receiving a Tequatl Hoard without the Exotic Dragon Chest? (I'd also like opinions as to if hitting Tequatl multiple times a day spanning different characters each attempt is a good idea; I literally have memorized his spawn times in my head all around the clock.) Either way, I'll be a constant threat to Zhaitan's Champion to ensure maximum efficiency unless believably informed that my efforts are fruitless. Thanks!
