Nerfed Sharp and Hard Crystal Shards

26 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I hope there is a shard drop event on the 4th of January because I have done 4 hours of gathering with Kamisylve's Blessing and I have gotten NOTHING even with 700 shovels in the desert.  What has the Kamasylve Blessing given me? nothing but crap!!! I usually get 1-4 shards at least but nothing with the last update. I have had to resort to buying them on the mp which i have never done before.  BDO needs to quit making this game less challenging in gathering. How can I upgrade gear when there is nothing to upgrade with?  Are they wanting me to quit and lose a player that has put up with a lot of bs in this game.

Yeah it seems to me they nerfed the drop rate becuase of the Elions Blessing in the desert. I also spent 1.5k shovels and got nothing out of it so im gonna try gathering from animals or other methods

So many options, yet people whine because there's no effective AFK option.

Seriously, the devs should just delete all AFK shit from this game and be done with it.

Really, you mean we are not allowed to say something because the lack again a simple way of communication to address some changes.

If the would simple change the patchnotes from something like this 

In celebration of the New Year, Elion’s Blessing has been given to the desert area. While this blessing is in effect you have a very high resistance to the desert debuffs.

into this one, it would be a less confusing :P

 

In celebration of the New Year, Elion’s Blessing has been given to the desert area. While this blessing is in effect the debuf (dot) is removed in the desert. Additional the chances to gain sharp and hard blackstones while shoveling is reduced (do not even bother with it while this event is running and you better hope we don't forget to change it back after)

Bold part would be dev speak, italic would be the player translation. :ph34r:

 

edit. If you are into lifeskilling gathering meat from the sheeps in the hills between Vellia and Heidel or run multiple farms without workers is indeed better plus there is another option for sharp ones but this game is all about OPTIONS.

You're allowed to say anything (within limits) and I'm allowed to say anything. I said I'd rather have them delete all AFK crap from this game and increase rewards from actually playing the game instead.

But I'm also a realist and know that isn't going to happen as long as the game's publisher also owns a major part of the biggest PC cafe chain in Korea.

Shoveling isn't the only gathering that is affected.  I'm Artisan 10 and I only gather with magic/lucky tools on a variety of subjects and have seen a dramatic decrease this week.  For example, I got 1 Hard Shards from going through 2.5 lucky pick axes.  I've never seen it this bad...

Only seriously retarded ppl continued to shoveling  after the shovelgate.

Damn

I got shards in the desert after shovelgate except after the patch on the 28th. You are the "retard" for assuming noone got shards.

There needs to be an event or an increase in drop rate. There's a SEVERE shortage of the only item in the game to advance gear. Something that's so important to progression being in this much of a shortage.

I seem to be having no problems, I make sure to use +10% from Alch Stone and +3% from Fig, I avg 1 hard or sharp every 50 energy. I use Magic or Lucky depending on what I'm gathering. Today for E.g. I used 1 - 3/4 Magic Hoe, ended up with 5 Sharps 3 Hards that was off 270 energy.

So maybe I'm just getting lucky but it's always been like this I try to break down 300 energy worth of gathering and normally ends up 1 hard or sharp every 50 energy.

So I did deer meat gathering....

 

50 left on my magic butcher knife got 1 yes 1 hard crystal shard.  I used a shining steel butcher knife 250 usage and got wait for it .... a big fat 0.  I have 1008 gdamn deer meat.  Yet 0 shards. Meanwhile someone is saying in guild chat said they got 5 hards and 2 sharps butchering deer meat. WTF.  I gathered 750 stone in the desert yesterday 0 shards.

 

this is why i'm so mad... done with this game.

A subjective thought. For me it seems to have better rng/higher luck regarding hard/sharp when using a toon with low stats in luck, gathering and crappier tools than when Im gathering with my main toon i.e higher gathering, better tools etc.

I seem to have a heck of a better drop ratio.
