But you have to Experiment what type of Animal have high HAM and hope that it's possible to sample
I'm just now starting to wonder if this is a much more important / bigger hint than I realized...
I've been working under the assumption that CL75 is the max level that we can sample, just like live SWG. That made Mutant Rancors arguably the best high-CL things to sample, because they were right at that max level. They also had the highest HAM of anything CL75 or under (tied with a few things of lower CL like Young Malklok Plainswalkers). And, they were pretty close to the highest damage of anything CL75 or under -- only beaten by Reclusive Cavern Spider and Reclusive Cavern Spider Queens and Kusak Hunters.
So, I have been assuming that to get HAM up to the 18000 cap like you have, I needed Mutant Rancor or possibly Young Malklok Plainswalker DNA since they had the highest HAM for any creature at or under CL75. To cap damage, I figured Mutant Rancors would get close, but that I might need Kusak Hunter. I collected loads of Mutant Rancor and Young Malkok Plainswalker DNA, and even in Medina on Talus plus +20 experimentation and +25 assembly from tapes, I couldn't experiment anything up to 100% with VHQ samples of those creatures.
I think the GHA Genetics jewelry just adds a bit more experimentation and assembly; +5 to each for each piece of jewelry, up to +25 total for the whole set. BUT, since I can't experiment any line to 100% even though I'm halfway to the total +50 experimentation / assembly cap with tapes already, I don't think that getting a full set of those would magically let me cap those out with the same DNA.
So, another BE mentioned something in general chat that gave me pause. He asked if I had tried to sample regular Kimogilas -- the CL95 variety. I hadn't, because I believed that we couldn't sample anything higher than CL75. But he said that he could *attempt* to sample Kimogilas, although he hasn't ever successfully gotten a sample. BUT higher CL things like bigger Kimos report back that "you cannot sample from this creature", as opposed to letting you try but failing like with the regular Kimos. I tried an Enraged Rancor (CL80) and failed about 20 times in a row.
But now after re-reading your comment above, I'm thinking that maybe we are on to something here -- that maybe it is possible (but difficult) to get DNA samples off of creatures higher than CL75 here on Rev (maybe up to CL100 or something?). That would open up a LOT of possibilities. Malklok Plainswalkers are CL84 and have 29000 HAM. Mad Anglers are CL95 and do massive damage -- 820-1350. Kimogilas are CL95 with high HAM, medium armor, and decent damage also.
Not to press you to give away BE "trade secrets", but can you confirm or deny that we may be on the right track here?
