S rank or A+ to aim for, for better loot-chance?

55 posts in this topic

Some special person mentioned in the chat before that A+ increases loot, and S more xp. Quoting recent korean findings, he said.

As everyone would assume this would mess up the idea, theory, belief or actual truth that S rank increases loot and A+ dmg (etc) - which would then be false. Your guys statement on this?

Is it drop rate or drop chance? This is actually a major difference.

How do you define drop rate and drop chance?
 

I meant drop rate as rare drops it will drop more often, what % increase idk.

It is still all RNG but regardless its something you want while you farm. You would want an S on everything you are farming that drops anything rare, really.

and are these bonuses cumulative? Does S rank give the same bonuses from B and A+ as well as the loot?

well, yes. You can see that the health bar does not become a mystery from anything higher than a c grade. :)

Indeed. I am glad to see the forums can help people, rather than a being only a tool for venting for their angst.

I say A+ increases drop rate. S on top of everything increases experience.
