You can buy 1 of each type from each region's sigil shop, if I recall, so that's 2 of each right there. Then the crimson wish tree gave out a free....claymore or spear, can't remember which.I'm curious how many prototypes everyone's pulled so far. I've been playing since launch and have the following:
Bow - Total of 2 (second one was from the current Klee event) - Both used on R2 Prototype Crescent
Sword - Total of 4 , 3 Available, 1 used on R1 Prototype Rancour
Polearm - Total of 4, 3 available, 1 used on Dragonspine Spear (from the Dragonspine Tree)
Claymore - Total of 6 , 4 available, 2 used on a R2 Prototype Archaic
Catalyst - Total of 5, 3 available, 2 used on R2 Prototype Amber
Feels like the drop rate has maybe increased a bit since 1.4, but it's still pretty bad. If I remember correctly, you can buy the first bow prototype from one the shops, so that means that in all these months of playing, I've never has a boss drop a bow prototype
Regardless, I actually got quite a few prototypes from the weekly bosses over time. I have:
R5 Crescent Pike, R4 Whiteblind, R4 Prototype Amber, Prototype Starglitter, Snow-Tombed Starsilver, Mappa Mare, Dragonspine Spear, Prototype Rancour, Prototype Crescent, and then I still have 2 sword prototypes, 3 bows, and the selector.
I really regret making some of those R1 weapons, but what can you do. Looks like I had a total of 25. Subtract 10 from the sigil shops, the selector, and the free Crimson Tree one, so I got 13 as drops since launch. Out of all those weapons that i made, I only use the Crescent Pike (Rosaria), Whiteblind (Noelle), Prototype Amber (healer Ning), Starsilver (Razor), and Starglitter for the ER occasionally, The rest are just sitting there.
