Was the blackstone drop rate nerfed with patch?

10 posts in this topic

Posted

So in the last patch blackstones needed for forced enchant was lowered, since this happened i've been receiving no stones at all. I've played yesterday for about 6+ hours farming saussan and catfish and today too. i've only managed to snag 2 armor stones. I have currently +5 luck and 3 pets i know there has to be something wrong. I've easily killed 5k+ mobs. Is RNG being an ass to me or is there something fishy?

I have never had any luck with drops, thats the reason why I simply don't grind and make my money with crafting which is 99% non reliant on this stuid RNG :)

I've had a stable luck with drops just seems odd to me. I gotta enchant my gear and keep up with the rest.

What you describe is my typical day since the start whenever I kill end-game mobs. I rarely get more than 1 stone per few hours. Luck 4 or 5 most of the time. 

I was in a lowbie areas gathering yesterday and got 3 armor and 1 weapon stone when randomly 1 shotting stuff.

RNG blows.

Level alts. They moved the big blackstone drops to lower levels apparently. In one hour of Bloody Monastery, in a party of 3 we got 15 Blackstones total. Most of those were armor, but still. I didn't even think BM mobs dropped blackstones at all. And they've been coming at a steady pace up until Khurutos so far.

Looks like they're trying to tighten the power gap.

PS: Don't try to go there with your 50+ main, you'll get nothing, the drop rate vastly diminishes the moment the mobs turn pink/ light red.
