I used 56 Machetes on DS and still didn't get the charged horn and focus part. I can do DS 2 more times for a guaranteed part from the big chest, which is probably what I'll have to do because I can't afford to buy any machetes with this grind. What is funny is that I went to AB afterwards and it happened to be a finished map so I looted all the chests without helping the meta. It helped me finish up the machined staff and in turn I finished up the Druid staff collection.
Now I'm wishing I bought all the mystic weapon skins back when they were 10g each. They're upwards of 50g each now because of Mystic Coin prices. I'll need one for each spec weapon... thankfully staff counts for DD's staff as well. I def want a free asc warhorn so next time I see that Trixi person doing an HoT run I'll take my Ele along because I'll never be able to bare it otherwise.

I think only the plated weapons unlock the machined weapons. Might want to check anyways because so much crap pops up on the feed when you open the boss chest you could have missed it. That's why I wanted to unlock all the rest at once so I wasn't missing strikes on pods for them. I got most of them with the first 10 machetes I used and then I got 2 more before I ran out. It was pretty disheartening since machetes just don't drop like chak acid and crowbars. I could do a chain event on TD and have 20-30 chak acid easy. You're lucky to get 3 for an entire DS run before you pick the box that gives you 12 from the meta completion bouncy chest.
Try looking at Lfg around 30 min into it. I caught a group at the blighting tree rooms before the mouth. Got a nice short DS.
