@nitocris83 @asterdahl @terramak lots of alliance players cant join same team as other alliance players, we all decided to join one team but seems the number of players is limited per team any fixes for this, and why is the drop rate for sweet treats is so low, im at 7/50 to complete quest this is outrages, did you the same drop chance as ues?? please we need some updates.

    Just to add, it's the same drop rate on Xbox. Somewhere in the 1 per 30-50 mob range. So, will take between 1500 and 2500 kills. I'm up to 3.

    On PS4. Did influence run, arcane reservoir, 3 heroic encounters in each Elemental Evil area and have got 5/50 Sweet Treats

    Considering that the reward is one bag of goods, the same one you get from giving one treat in PE, maybe those quests are not meant to be completed daily unless you are really dedicated. The important quests to get the mask refinement material is reasonably fast to do even on multiple toons. The only thing I don't like about it is if something comes up in the next two weeks and I miss a day, then I am HAMSTER.

    Drop rate is so ridiculous for the tasty treats for Kill or Treat that one is just not worth doing. caluations if there is only 5 daily quests. with the one unable to really do realistically because of the poor droprate. not without a long hassle. Nine Days, to get to 35, unless they have other quests that are open at a later time. My guess its just the 5 daily ones. With the Kill or Treat, it would take seven days, a week if the drop rate was reasonable. But because it isn't it will take nine days without completing kill or treat.

    Wait.....
    Kill Or Treat is a DAILY?!?!?
    I assumed that it was a weekly.
    I've spent most of a miserable flu day playing most of the day.
    I've managed 26 so far.
    I thought I was way ahead for the week.

    I've found out that you can use your other characters for the dailies so you can get it unlocked in one day if your committed. And have more then one character.
  • obsiddiaobsiddia Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 999 Arc User
    Perhaps we can get some guidance: @Staff: Is this meant as a daily or a weekly?
    (Or a maybe you complete it, maybe you don't / meh?)
    Did you really think anyone could steal the power of the god of thieves?

    it didnt say anything about weekly, @nitocris83 we need info about this, i guess not worth doing this stupid contest at all with this drop rate for it to complete a quest for x/50, please some update before day reset would be nice feels more like a scam for players to fail, more info please from community manager.

    Actually I was expecting to see some sort of load-leveling for the teams similar to how you can't have a huge imbalance of Ten-Towns vs. Arcane Brotherhood in Icewind Dale.

    I though Kill or Treat was supposed to be a daily. At this rate, I won't even be able to get one round done. NO DROPS for me yet. Also, I need two sashes for my two casters. None as yet. Seems the drop rates on all the items associated with this event require a little tweaking.
  • therealprotextherealprotex Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 471 Arc User
    The drop rate would be ok if the "50" was a bug and meant to be "5" only as for the other dailies... If all is WAI, I won't bother completing that quest. But then, I do not expect any answers from CM or Devs on this topic.

    They drop, but it's a slow trickle. Grinding all of my Soshehstar weeklies and River District dailies on one alt netted me 8 treats. Extrapolate it and I'd be looking at 6 days to complete it. I think I'd want more than just a single illusionist's bag for that kind of effort, more so since I'd have to be fighting gimped the whole time with that mask on instead of with normal head armor.

    Maybe the elusive witch's sash is in that one illusionist's bag! LOL

    EDITED to add: Yesterday I was having really good drops in Sharandar! In the Realm of Malabog I got 14 drops in about 40 minutes. The more enemies I rounded up, the better the drop.

    I have carefully kept track of the drop for the sweet treats x/50 and the zone bugaboos you have to interact to get 5/5.

    Bugaboos:I was in Konig and got the "trick" 9 times in a row, got so fed up I logged to character screen and back and got the next 3 treats in a row. I have had this happen on my alts as well, get in a"trick" rut I stop at 5 fails with them, fix it by logging and back and it seems to reset the counter. It appears to me to be part of the (drop loot choke down timer) that happens lowering your loot when you kill mobs too fast.

    Sweet treats: I kept track on main and alts where I stood on treats post play. Main:played 2 hrs. with mostly hard core killing of lvl appropriate mobs, got 4/50. Alts: (3 played 90 min ea) post play with mostly hard core killing with lvl appropriate mobs all three has 3/50. That is too coincidental to be 3x 3/5 on 90 min play and 4/50 for 120 min. play. That works to be 1 every 30 min. at that drop rate it would take 25hr of constant play to get 50/50.

    As it is a "daily" and there is only 24 hrs in a day....25 hour completion seems to belay it being a "daily". It is the "daily" of the 5 tasks that is most suited for a group to participate..if it's not working?....well you get it. Yes, you can get the contest event done in time doing 4 dailies with one toon playing EVERY day, best not miss a day though. Yes, it counts account wide towards the threshold needed to gain the promised threshold reward so alts throwing in helps....but it would go just a bit faster if you could achieve 5 in a day rather than 4 as advertised.....

    Maybe is that sash was in the reward, I would be able to work up a modicum of enthusiasm to kill myself time wise, to even try without my normal advantage of a good head slot adds, but as its a ordinary treat bag, I can't be bothered to give out the effort. I'll play an alt. Just feel bad for those starting out without alts. Play EVERY day is all I can say.

    My take on it all is, as usual Cryptics much cursed RNG seems to have infested and cursed Halloween as well.

    It figures the drop rates for treats is being looked into after I completed the quest 3 times:) I parked my 16.8 DO in an empty level 64 instance and killed so many redcaps that I found out that f. concoctions stack to 999. It took about 4 hours the first day, two hours the second, and 3 hours today. Each time I finished with about 50% more charms than treats. The drop rate isn't realistic for most people.

    Nice one - but really omg an event that is launched with an unrealistically low drop rate of items needed to complete... its a bit shocking really is it not?
