I did the grinds when it was bad and all I can say is, "who gives a shit" (mainly for the person you're responding to). I also don't care if boss gear is more accessible. You still need to upgrade it. Nobody worked "hard" to get it before, it was all luck. I've killed the field bosses and Kzarka many, many times. Most times channel swapping to get another kill in. Still, one boss armor drop after months of trying, no Kzarka weapon, and a handful of Livertos. I know I'm getting the damage in thanks to the hunter seals tier I place in, but it doesn't matter. Random is random, it's not "hard work".

Well said!

I assume they simply forgot to insert the text part:

Patch notes are like RNG chance to be accurate as it is currently...

This needs clarifying as requested please.

8 shards in the bag m8, I think u were right :)

@CM_Aethon So does this mean after the event we will no longer be able to fish relics at all or does the event increase the drop rate of relics?

 Is farming considered as a "gathering skill" ?

Thanks!

You have allways (Since the release of shards) been able to get Sharp/hard shards from farming.

how exactly is this event fair for classes that will be pushed out of good grind spots constantly, because they dont have an awakening yet ? and if thats not enough when the last classes get their awakening the event will end so they wont benefit from it at all O.o

rip not mainstream classes. 

i expected more rewarding compensation for not awakened classes than xp boost that affect everyone anyway.

 @CM_Aethon Can you please look into the ancient relic drop rate. Me and a guild friend are master 2 and 10 and we usually get 8 shards/night in a certain spot where we have been fishing for 2 weeks. Last night it was 2 for me 4 for him. Can you please check if it's not bugged and instead of 1% (default) + 0.5% (buff) it's only 0.5% (buff) or something like this?

I got 11 the night before patch, 0 last night.

Might just be a coincidence but, I've never not had 1 shard for 12 hours worth of fishing.

For em it has increased. i think i grinded for about 2h maybe and got 10 scroll pieces

Maybe the node investment starded to pay off.

 

When i first arrived in valencia scrolls dropped like crazy. Then after few days they stopped and dropped 1 per 1-2 hours. Now it's back to former for me. Guess RNG is just RNG if it loves you you're good if it has a grudge against you then you're toast...

@Rosenkraunz It stacks and there is no cap, but is additive, aka you have 100 basic and +200 = 300% +100 = 400% , +costume = 410% + exlixir = 425% etc

Source:

I play with a friend over Skype and we farmed from 55 to 59 in the same spots in the same party with the same buffs, but I used 50% xp scroll from time to time and the xp was different, but not by 50% but rather 10-15% depending on how much 50 meant of the total value.

 There needs to be an option to give 1 Contribution point per day instead of taking the combat buffs that have to be used right then and there. As it is currently setup it is one sided towards combat. So 90 contribution points from now till end of year isn't gamebreaking as you can get that many skill points with just 5-6 hours of grinding.

exactly what I noticed ... but after node connecting + investment, the scrolls/rares droprate decreased curiously a lot ... maybe more trashloot but far less scrolls/rares 

which level is your node?
