6 posts in this topic

Posted

So i did some golems today for about 300 energy and felt weird that i did not get anything even tho i have lucky tool , and then i realised that it should break already , and you know what , it doesnt use tool any more , which means no shards ... REEEEP golems all hail P2W!!!

I lied , still drops sharps , but i got one after like 500 energy

i ended up just shoveling yesterday and 500 shovels got me through around 250 energy or so and finished up with 2 sharp and 2 hard shards. it's all good. :) + with the blessing of kamasilve we got for free, +gm's blessing i'm getting bk 5 energy every 3 mins, so that makes it even better, (at least for the hr the gm's blessing lasts.

I was wondering if you could get a sharp while shoveling.   All I ever get are Hard Shard shoveling...

Rarely post here, infact this is my second post, but was wandering around the forums to see if there was a thread on this topic.

Before the medal event, I averaged around 2-3 sharps per 100 energy harvesting Golems, needless to say this was a VERY profitable way of making some money, and it's been all but confirmed that Golems do NOT drop hards and ONLY sharps, making them even better.

Could just be RNG, but today and yesterday going to golems, I've been pouring atleast 400-500 energy into them and have gotten a ton of those gathering medals, but only 1 and if I'm lucky, 2 sharps. 

Personally I feel like adding the medals, indirectly nerfed the sharp drop rate on them.

I can only guess due to expanding their loot box, as before this patch they only dropped Diamonds, Rough Stone, Iron Ore, or Sharps, which with such a tiny loot box, it's speculated that's why their shard drop rate was so high.

Anyways just giving my personal experience thus far with these golems!
