    I wonder how many of these new PQs need to be done in order to get all 4 Disabled Spidermech mats on average?

    You need 140 scraps for familiar and 30 for green adorn.

    For familiar, you’ll need 28 runs if you don’t have bountiful harvest (5 scraps per run), it can drop to 18 with enough bountiful harvest

    For familiar + adorn, you’ll need between 21 and 34 runs.

    You’ll need 16ish runs to get the parts for said familiar (I always came short by 2-4 runs with an average of 8 scraps per run)

      @Whilhelmina

      I meant the rare mats like “Disabled Spidermech Eyes”, “Disabled Spidermech Cephalothorax”, “Disabled Spidermech Exhaust Valve” and “Disabled Spidermech Abdomen” for the familiar

      I’ve done 11 runs so far and only one of them has dropped. Considering you not only need each one to drop, but be uniques to avoid duplicates I could see me doing 20-30 runs and only having 2 of them, with a couple of duplicates and not being able to get them all done before Tinkerfest finishes.

      I’d imagine there would be no point completing this next year as there will be better (or I will have better) familiars.
