Let me compare the old Drop mechanism with Patch 1.2 - Better drops! Praise the RNG! The different
I’ll show you two screenshots that you can see clearly
PS: I invested the Crescent Shrien node into LV10 before enabling the node investment (it didn’t open the investment effect of the node before, so it doesn’t affect the drop).
I use Token of Crescent income and daily time as the standard of calculation
The first screenshot was from September 2 to September 7, and I was in Crescent Shrien for five days
The total of the Token of Crescent is 35000, and the average daily 7000+Token of Crescent is 2.5 to 3 hours
Pila Fe Scroll total 40+
The second screenshot is a screenshot of the same location on October 3
Total Token of Crescent 7500+2.5 hours, Pila Fe Scroll total 5.8
So you see something different? With the new drop mechanism and the investment of the node, I really feel helpless, now the drop is unmatched wonderful
The funny thing about it tho, I used to get a lot more drops before the adjustment, and before nodes worked.
So now even with Lv. 10 nodes, I find way less items than before. I know it’s not simply “rng” because it’s consistent what i average an hour now vs what i averaged an hour before.
It is sadly just like you said @Fatality and i believe it also affected the enhancements rates as they are also using this new system on them (for some reason i lost 6 ogres rings trying just to PRI one ring, 2 fail on 34fs and 35fs, and another fail at 49fs with my other character)
