    Re: Boss Drops

    I tend to agree with most of the points raised here, I also spend a lot of time boss hunting 70%+ of the time on drop boost we get fine oil and bene only maybe 1 in 5 we get a gem/uni item or useless rune, so so seldom do we get anything worthwhile. ( 1 in 2 weeks or less)

    Why was RD removed? It was my absolute favourite boss to kill on game, couldn't you just have lowered/removed its gold drop rate?

    But going onto gold and lack of it, it is obviously a server issue, thought it was just us in dragons. I and most of my guild now spend about 30-50% of our playing time now gold farming flowers we are efficient at it but its absolutely soul destroying, definitely not an enjoyable way to play this game.

    I dont want everything handed to me either, just wanna enjoy my game and while I currently still do enjoy it I can see the line approaching where enjoyability meets tedious.

    Just some honest input

    Yeah our races to see who can make most gold per hour have been fun, briefly, but I agree it gets tedious mass killing mobs 40-50 levels below you. I've taken your lead and started selling items for gold rather than gg, cos that's what I'm short of, and there's no reasonable priced bars to buy. I've still got over 100 items from xmas event that I haven't IDd yet because I can't afford to

    Off the top of my head the ones zade said and the critical hit ones. Zasper something and tiger do da! :)

    With regards to OP I think the length of time Andy’s servers have survived says a lot and credit to him! In terms of fresh content there’s another post (that if I wasn’t on my phone I’d link) that mentioned taking unused areas and making them useful again. Tbh you could do 120-130 130-140 etc, take current unused maps and bash over some exp tables and drop files.

    Who hunts serp valley? Noob mines?

    I appreciate new updates such as toa and pb take priority but I’m sure there’s some quick wins to be had that won’t effect balance and what not

    Its ridiculous because you can just not play and return for a few weeks during new content release... easter, summer, Halloween and christmas events and manage keep up with the rest of the server once you hit a certain point. Outside of those periods literally nothing happens.. tumbleweed

    Could check if CelestialHiogi is still in drop files been camping NL for almost 18 months for this bastard thing :)

    As for drops i really cant speak much i tend to feel unlucky as heck but then get a gd few nice drops in my name.

    I feel like gold is hard to come by as a higher lvl player , Loki / Crystal temple only places where mobs drop me 10k+ gold, maybe have a very slight reduction in repair costs or bump the sell price up for some stones + gemstones ie 137/141/146/152 stones + hematite/azurite/bloodstone marble

    Re: Boss Drops

    When most people kit cost on average 10mil to fully repair everything (just as a example). Even if we did a guild hunt to any of the higher tier maps the gold split between a small or big group is rubbish and thats because the mobs dont drop enough really give the mob level.

    Resorting to collect all crap on floor is ok but when it takes a fair few FULL bags of crap to get a decent amount of gold back and even that requires constant recalls so people can empty bag and recollect.

    Item drops from mobs are rare but yeah do happen most either get sold to shop for few hundred thousand gold which is nice or if its a nice item it will get salvaged.

    So relying on items to earn gold also sucks as usually only a few standard items worth selling. The gemstones drop more frequently than items ive noticed recently but again these dont get much gold when sold to trader and as its either use them or sell them id say most end up gettinf sold to trader as the better gem stones usually only come during events

    I am like the other saying i dont want shit ton of golds handing to us but something a bit better in the higher level ccaves would be nice.

    As for drops id settle for a white item or an orb every once in a while. Seems all you get most of the time is going to be a bene and a grinding oil. Now believe it or not becomes extremely boring quickly. Especially if you wanna group hunt,

    But I'll leave it here, ain't really got anything more to say about it all. It's your server at the end of the day, we have the choice to play or not.
    Never said that. If you don't want a debate then don't start one. I replied with all the facts as I see them. Do you really expect me to read your "not a moan thread" and then wave a magic wand and make all your problems go away? You didn't once mention a solution. Just a (not a) moan thread

    I really can't help you if you don't help yourself.


    Everyone knows there's a decent sized update on the way, with level cap increase and new kits. We also mentioned Heroes League, Ancient Items, Yimoogi Update and of course the Easter event will be even better than the last.

    Sadly some of the smaller bugs (amulets etc) have to take a back seat for a little while, while we work on larger updates. Otherwise nothing gets done


    Anyway I am not going to bother anymore here. I will leave this thread open for anyone who has an opinion/ideas. I understand some of you are bored, I can only be sorry about that, just please know that updates (as always) are on the way

    Whelp there goes that lol. Guess I'll be back in April. I already know the updates will be geared for endgame as usual so doesn't even come close to applying to me or anyone newer to help sustain or catch up in a sense.

    Maybe see you all in April.

    Clearly anyone without gold isn't hunting?

    I don't know what amused me more your arrogance or ignorance. This was never about a debate, more me asking fellow members of the community if they have found the same issue's, which clearly they have. Your ignorance to basic in-game issues never fails to amaze me. Sure you're working on an update, the futures bright....At least for a couple of months, by which point it will revert back to a miserable boring grind fest. Of countless grinding oils and benediction oils and the odd item here. Or farming area's 20-30 levels lower than you, while tting every 5 minutes to sell flowers to make gold.

    Maybe you don't like to hear all this. Clearly you have got your back up about it. Me too, but end of the day, We all play this game for fun. Maybe your idea of fun differs from mine? But, what I can safely say, is people remain here not from loyalty or because it's fun, but because we have so much time invested. But even this, eventually they will tire, like so many who have already left.

    You can take everything I have said in any way you want. However, just because "you don't see the problem" Does not mean they don't exist. When it comes down to it your not the one playing the game for 20+ hours a week, but as always, anyone who doesn't share your view on the current game state, is merely moaning and want's everything on a plate. That's just not so. But people being forced into low level area's to farm gold is now a common thing.

    You can call this a moan thread, it's certainly turned into one. but when you make out like the in-game problems are imaginary, it's always going to end up that way.

    Said my piece, at least.

    As the old gambling saying goes. When it stops being fun! Stop!.

    Catching up isn't difficult if you're willing to put the time in. What level and class are you?

    It is ifor they can't find the basic skills , as i'v says we have a lvl 126 warrior whow spends his nights grinding sunken temple for the last 2 weeks for berserk, he could easily be almost 140 by now if spells werent so dam rare , i'v also started lapping the noob bosses trying to up the chances of getting sum books for guildies

    I used to try doing that for new players as well but they drop so rarely it was tedious. When people realised that they would have to donate for a book or two they left.

    Re: Boss Drops

    Just to point out - in the case of some items they are more likely to drop to someone who is in "need" of them. Berserk for example would have a 5x higher drop rate for a warrior that does not have it. Attempting to farm them with a higher level character would be tedious

    Didn't know this, interesting I might try testing that method on a noob char.

    What if the noob char is grouped with a high level?

    Sorry to sound harsh but I call bullsh*t on this statement lol as every1 knows I grinding crystal cave constantly from lvl 160 to 167 in the search for frostbite which I never got , your talking over 500+ hours in that place , in writing this makes you realise how much time this takes up lol

    P.s that's the only reason I became 1 of the highest lvl players in game Purley down to me trying to get that spell , lucky for me I was then giving the spell as a Christmas present from Soko

    Some items, I very much doubt they're included.
