Okay, before the trolls say "GET GOOD" and blah blah.. I'm going to ask this community a question.  In my server I have seen the same person, yesterday "Tuesday" get 2 witches earrings about 5 minutes apart ( doable i suppose) then about 10 minutes later give or take a few minutes get 2 mark of shadows about 10 minutes apart.  I didn't think anything at the time, I was like " wow dude has some serious luck".  But today was the cake... In a span of literally 15 minutes the guy gets 3 Mark of Shadows in a row.  Now either he is extremely lucky or this guy knows something we all dont.  Has anyone else seen this or been this lucky.  I have played the game since release and played in JP for about 6 months and never seen anything like it.  I myself have gotten earrings and shadows but only 2 of each and were hours/days apart and have spent hours upon hours grinding these spots for more.

Someone in another thread about this kind of thing said there were cheater ways to up the droprate... I don't see how that would work though.

Could just be someone with serious horseshoes.

a guild member of mine said he has seen this same guy get a number rare drops in the past.  his name is memorable so it stuck out to him.

Who knows, maybe he's been no-lifing it for weeks on end, and even now is thinking "These meager morsels...fml..."

Although if your guildie continues seeing these drops then...

You could always send a notice to a CSR about it. Worst case scenario they'll brush it off or discover it is completely innocent. But perhaps they catch something potentially game breaking.

Luck is client side probably. Modify the value for it and send your item drop rate through the roof. 9_9

This game has serious issues.

I just can't see someone getting this kind of luck in drops that fast and that often.

There are 1 or 2 people on my server that get drops daily in this fashion, literally everyday. So much so that they are either cheating or the game is seriously broken as far as "luck" is concerned.

If someone could dupe items, would it say "Player got Mark of shadow from xxxxxxxx" everytime?  Does it announce it?  All three today were from Shadow Priestess if im not mistaken

It could just be. Lvl 10 node. 5 luck. S rank on all the mobs. 

 

I know a guild mate who has s rank on most of the mobs in here. Lvl 10 node 5 luck. And gets acouple witches a day. 

Also if your geared enough you can clear super fast. So more kill rate indirectly increases drop rate right?

Receiving the item as a drop or pri/duo/etc will result in a pop up for the server(channel?), if you purchase one off the AH or sell/repurchase from a merchant, it will not proc.

I really can't help shake the feeling that this is a real thing and it needs to be addressed before tons of other stupid stuff they have planned. The only issue is that this game is far too client side heavy when it comes to checks and values.

No, this is definetly not the case, I have Abandoned Monastery to Lv10, 5 luck, S rank on every monster except priestesses/elites. I get a drop maybe once an hour or so.

Almost the same happened to me, 2 earrings and a ring in 20 min, happened 5 days ago, since then nothing...I'm starting to think that there is some sort of lucky number you get when you log...rng is weird sometimes.

Phantasy Star Online has a unique 'name to drop' system. Depending on your name, it's letters, accounting for upper and lower case, go into an algorithm and it spits out a colored seal for your character. The color of the seal determines what kinds of drops you will receive more of. Could this game have a similar system in place?

Who knows, maybe S rank knowledge + 5 luck + investing in abandoned monastery/Hexe since launch

Those are not that rare of items anyways. Now when Ogre Rings and Tree Spirit Belts start dropping at a unreal rate then we have a problem.

I don't know, but yesterday
me and my guild were doing
the guild quest of skeletons
near witch chapel and all of us saw
that somebody got 2 consecutive MoS
and we said WTF!! don't remember
the exact name but it was something like
maname, mame, monomer... don't remember

but in 1 hour I got 2 Witch earrings(not consecutive) doing the
guild quest, and I don't have this node and all the mobs are "C"
xD don't know if its luck or just the increased drop rate

btw both of the earrings were dropped by the same mob in the same location

coincidence?? dond know :D
