Greetings, any one know at what level in the fortress do we start battling formidable Pixies? I'm at level 7 and I haven't seen them yet...

Thank you,

    I don't want to be the guy who says search, but search the forum.

    Why? Because we don't yet have a good solid answer. There are a lot of theories that have been posted that are worth a read.

    I'm at 7 of 10.

    Most often the necessary pixy met me on the sixth floor. Helped quite a few comrades to close this quest, pixies on the sixth floor come across not every time, but quite often.

    I Found them in floor 3-4-5 and 6 too. Most of them came from 6 tho(tower lvl 1).

    Runes affect foes as well. Try using oddity runes in combinations with dungeon level

    I watched a video on youtube from a guy named Wizards News where he tried to research this. He said based on his findings, the best bet was going to be in chamber 4 with either a level 1 or level 2 runestone. Hope that helps!

    I found that having two professors on level 5 with any stone and they will spawn. We got the 10 in about an hour

    Level 4 has been the best bet for me too!

    I have tried all levels with different runes and nothing. I got a pixie, but not the right kind?!?!?! Ugh!!!

    I just completed catching 10 Formidable Pixies. I caught them in chamber 2 and 3. I only saw Horned Pixies above chamber 3.

    @DharkhenRhall what level runestones were you using and were you solo?

    I found those pesky pests in Chambers ii and iii at random while soloing the 'tress. Runes 1&2 of oddities is best IMHO.

    am 80% complete with this task

    most of the Pixies have been found on L3&4 Fortress with L1&2 Runes

    Did tower 6 twice with 2 other wizards, got 3 Pixies both times. The problem was that only the person who engages them gets the quest credit for killing them, so on the second run we rationed them out.

    Seems a bit harsh, especially as a Professor can blow them away in two hits.

    I wonder if the Development Team might consider adding a group quest credit feature, seeing as teamwork is the nature of the Wizard Challenges.

    You can mostly stumbled upon them in L4 Fortress with L1 Runestones.

    i found most of my ten on ruins level 4 and 5 using level 1 and 2 runestones.

    occasionally i see one on tower level 1 using level 1 runestones but more often i get an imposing something instead.

    I completed the 10 formidable pixie SOS challenge by using all level 1 runestones in level 3 of the fortress. Took 41 tries to get all 10.

    It is most helpful when talking about your successes to add in which profession you are. I am an auror and I haves been **** away on lvls 2-3 with lvl one runestones forever. Probably at least 60 challenges and I just got my 6th tonight. I am going to focus moving forward on tower lvl 4 and 5 as I am seeing formidable level foes more on 4.

    Keep it up. So far i am a 0/10. Struggle is real as an Auror but will keep at it! I will try some of these tips too!

    For me, Rune chamber V and Tower chamber VI were the best for getting formidable pixies as an Auror.

    I never noticed it until today, over a month later, but it needs to be said. @Craeft's comment wins the internet, which means all subsequent comments were rendered invalid by default. I'm sorry, I don't write the rules, I just enforce them.

    For me as an auror worked a Rune oddity level 1 at the fortress level 6 (tower chamber 1).

    You have to be a Professor. I tried forever as a Auror and didn't find a single one. I found all 10 in Ruins level 5 as a Professor. Doesn't matter which runes stone.

    I'm a professor and from Rune Chamber 1 up through Tower Chamber 1 all I see are common or imposing... no formidable. I've tried all the advice here and about 6 hours but no formidable pixies.

    I’m a solo Magizoologist player so completing this task was quite annoying. But I found that pixies in general appeared more often around dusk onwards, though I wasn’t playing much when it was night in the game. I mainly went in fortress levels four to eight for the task. I’ve seen them in the higher fortress levels as well and I mainly used level 1 and 2 runestones. I have seen them in the first three chambers at least, but I haven’t unlocked all the levels of the fortress to comment on the rest.

    Also another note, I came across an elite formidable pixie as well, but it didn’t count towards the task. I wasn’t exactly happy, but I did complete the task eventually.
