Do the Rikti in Crey's Folly or Peregrine drop merits, as well? Angelsilhouette 23:35, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Once you are a member of Vanguard, any Rikti anywhere can drop merits for you.--GreyDog 00:39, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Yep. Once you have the badge you can pick up Vanguard Merits on any mission involving Rikti. I've gotten them doing the War Wall Defender Badge Mission, on missions from Steven Sheridan in Brickstown, and Angus McQueen in Founders' Falls. Sometimes they don't drop as often as the missions you get from contacts in the RWZ but you can still pick up more merits just about anytime you battle Rikti.

One thing of note since I posted this. I've run the Montaque Castanella Arc to join the Midnighter's Club with 2 of my 50 levels, both vanguard members since level 35, and none of the Rikti I faced and defeated gave out any Merit Points. I am thinking this may something the Devs set up since, like Vanguard, the Midnighter's consider the Rikti their sworn enemy so any mission against Rikti you run for the club doesn't award Merits since you're "officially" working for another organization. It's a grand total of 2 missions, so far, so I don't see any real issue but it is one instance where I have found myself battling a host of Rikti without earning a single Vanguard Merit.

It could just as easily have been a run of bad luck though, Vanguard Merits aren't always the most prolific drops. --Rantmo 18:08, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
Oddly enough, I had the exact opposite experience. I was experiencing quite a few Vanguard Merits and never got less than two and sometimes three when I got them. In the three missions from Ashley McKnight, I received somewhere between 35 & 45 merits. Torin23 18:47, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
LOL Okay guess that ends that mystery. I must have just not gotten lucky. Hey it happens but it just seemed odd to me cause I usually get at least a few Merits from any mission involving Rikti (heck I have one character with almost 400 Merits and she's never been on a Mothership raid yet) and got zero from Monty's with 2 different characters. Fortunately I am an Altoholic and have at least 2 dozen characters on the two servers I play on that can run the missions. So eventually I'll get some merits as well Taxibot Sara2.0 18:56, 23 May 2008 (UTC) Taxibot Sara2.I

Fromabov98 19:42, 23 May 2008 (UTC)fromabov98 I have ran the midnighter 4x thus far with random toons, I received merits almost every large group on 2 of them and the other 2 I received squat. It is just another randomization.
