Has anyone else experienced a HUGE decrease in drop rate and coin amount since the last update?

    ... Not this again.

    Comes up every single time after a 2x "events" ends.

    And unless you've been grinding for the past 14 hours, you don't have enough of a sample to make any kind of judgment on the drop rate.

    There was 2x drop rate along with 2x exp and spirit last week, and now it over. So now we are back to the original low drop rate again.

    The drop rate never changes the amount of drops you get doubles....(meaning 2x the chance at the same drop rate)...

    I do.

    On almost all my chars.

    Your point ?
    Proud supporter of the new expansion. Sure it has it's share of bugs, like any games. But for a pure farmer/grinder, that's a whole lot of new mobs to go beat up b:chuckle

    HE did say AFTER MAINT.

    And he's right, i have been having such horrible drops.... not to mention it seems like the packs are stacked against me (open 200+ get nothing but tokens (with the exception of 2 charms and one best luck)) I understand packs are random, but the system for randomization must be some sick twisted device designed to suck even more money than humanly possible.

    back to subject, the drop rates are far worse than they were prior to maint, but I notice that the drops rates do fluctuate from time to time. I don' understand why they dont bump them up a bit, since "nobody grinds" they should bump it up a bit and maybe entice non-cash players to grind a lil bit more. i mean c'mon, that map is sooo lonely~!

    I agree with the last thing the last poster said, in regards to the drop rate for grinding being higher.. Although I'm sure that's at the bottom of the long, sad list of things PW will never come to see.
