Blackstone event isnt active

26 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Been grinding at pirates ever since patch came up and blackstone droprate is still unchanged. Guildies experience the same in other areas. And theres no buff icon either which there usually is when theres an event ongoing?

 

edit: unless the new blackstone quests are the event itself

It CANT be the quest, because....:

4.Increased Black Stone Drops

  • Start: August 3rd 10:00 UTC (After maintenance)

  • End: August 10th 10:00 UTC (With maintenance)
     

Following the various Golden Artifact events we will increase the drop rate of Black Stones throughout the world for both Armor and Weapon Black Stones.

Well, in like 30 min I got 2 weapon and other 2 armor stones. Just keep trying, it's a matter of time :P

Drop events don't have any buff icon btw. The event buff icon that you may have seen lately is the +EXP buff.

And you know this how? Are you somehow privy to the drop rate information? 

4.Increased Black Stone Drops

Does not say you will get black stones raining from the sky. You may want to look up the definition of increased. It could be as small as .001% and it's still an increase.

I didn't get a backpack every hour either but the event certainly was active.

It certainly does work. While doing those 500 kills quests (catfish, manshas, rhutums so far) blackstones were dropping by the dozen, would never get that many from that kind of mobs before (also, absolutely no node investment and such in the areas). I think I ended with around 30+ armour stones and 22 or so weapon ones after clearing those approx 1500 mobs (not counting the ones rewarded by the quests themselves).

While we understand that all players will inevitably have a different experience than others the event is in full effect. To ease any concerns I have confirmed with our team, the event is in fact on and working.

It's exactly like the other black stone event. They not only increased the rates, they made it so all mobs drop both black stones.

My statement still stands strong.
