Bootleg Blackstone Event

34 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I don't know how it's been for everyone else since the patch but from my experiences so far this blackstone event pales in comparison to the last blackstone event we had.   During the last blackstone event it was literally raining blackstones at pirates with multiple drops per pack but it seems like the dumb Lavienta box event drops are screwing the loot tables and dominating the drops.  Perhaps other people are having better luck but my blackstone drop rate is essentially the same as is was pre-patch.  Pretty disappointing honestly.  Any one else noticing this?

I totally agree with you as I am seeing the same.

We didn't need it in the first place. I'm glad its not raining down from the clouds like it has before when it actually was needed.

Yeah I put up 250 armor and 80 weapon stones last night and they sold out instantly, the last batch after pirates the armor sold out but the weapons didnt.  so maybe the price is going down afterall

Top contested areas seem pretty weak , I pass gear to alt and level it ... usually by the time i hit 49 99.999% i'm with 30-35 stones each just from grinding(4-5h) while on pirates I made 15 stones each in 3-4h.

By all means, do share, where is this magical place you're farming?  

All I know is during the last blackstone event they were dropping at an almost broken rate to the point where I was able to horde roughly 3000+ blackstones farming pirates. Where as now with this event the blackstone drop rate increase at pirates is barely noticeable at all since the stupid box event components are dominating the drops.  I'll be shocked if I can get over 1000 at this current rate.

Call me crazy but doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose of having a blackstone event if there's yet another dumb box event running at the same time where all their components dominate the loot table and drops instead of the blackstones everyone really wants and needs?  

Seems to me like they just wanted to shut the people up that were pleading for another blackstone event without actually giving us a real blackstone event.

I like when people complain about RNG, Its comical to read.

I like when people don't actually bother to understand the argument being made and yet feel the need to add snarky comments anyways....

I'm not simply complaining about "RNG".  I'm complaining about the Devs infuriating decision to give us a blackstone "event" at the same time as yet another dumb box event with components that absolutely dominate the loot drops and render the blackstone event to less than half it's previous effectiveness.  I'm simply comparing this blackstone event to the previous blackstone event which had no other events screwing the the loot tables.  Perhaps you're a new player who didn't experience the previous event but it was factors better than the current event.  

At pirates for example, during the last event blackstones had what seemed like a 99% drop chance.  I was getting multiple stones every single pack of mobs, it was borderline broken(in a good way).  That is not the case this time due to the box event.

With this latest event, instead of the blackstones having a 99% drop chance it's the gold/silver/ring components having the 99% drop chance. Instead of getting multiple stones per pack like before I'm lucky to get 1 every few packs because I'm getting gold,silver, and ring event drops 99% of the time.  

Due to the box event the blackstones are dropping barely above baseline drop rates.  Sure it's better than baseline but it's certainly nothing to write home about .  Hence my comment of it being a bootleg blackstone event.  To me it seems like they knew people were complaining about the lack of blackstones and gave us this gimped event just to shut people up but didn't actually want to inject more blackstones into the supply.

And this isn't meant to shit on the box event, but I'm just saying it would be nice if they didn't lump these events together.  I mean what is the point of having a blackstone event if it's just going to be completely overshadowed by the box event that is dominating the drops anyways.... seems rather counter productive no?
