It might not be -too- bad since most people got what they wanted from SR already, right?

A lot of users already have the ***they want. If anything, it'll just be a couple of high-activity periods. Stop overplaying it.

Its a nice idea. The other downside tho is if you can get a full pt.. chances are they all might need something different. So you might not be able to spam the same mobs over and over. - If you can low man or solo it, then it seems like a decent option.

You could always just add that to the shout, so everyone who joins knows exactly which bosses you are targeting and you don't have to flip between bosses someone needs that you might not.

Realistically, most players only care about ingrid teodor and arciII

Those are your power items. Founders is super niche. Trusts are only for new players.

If you join a shout expecting to get a farm for Darculin Rosalatia August, you can't realistically be upset that it's not gonna happen.

lul it's impossible to over-exaggerate anything when it comes to assura.

Teo: Samnuha Tights/Coat

Arci2: Taming Sari, Ochu, Enticer's Pants

Who the *** cares about Asura? Asura problems are Asura's alone.

I hope one day we can wait until the update actually hits before forming strong opinions on changes. Secretly I know this day will never come.

I have to go back in at some point. I got the capped cure staff and turned it in for copper voucher since I main WHM and have a better cure staff already. I face-palmed when I, later, realized that my cure potency staff is WHM only and the cure staff from SR is actually for a lot of jobs. I even sat there then I was turning it in and thinking "what would I need this for" without realizing other jobs that have Cure would love it. Dur dur dur. Let this be a lesson that may stick in the back of the heads of people that end up reading this.

On topic, I agree with Dannyl above. Having an option is better than not having an option. It feels even mo-betta' when you're really only after a single piece. Also, the possibility of not getting any loot pretty much feels about like getting crappy augmented stuff to turn in for vouchers and the time it takes to cross-check the current stuff you have to make sure you're getting rid of the lesser of the two, as far as augments go. As with most things, we'll have to wait until the update goes live to see how bad/good it is.

How the fk is this even a topic people bitching about.

Regular option is the same ***.

New option gives you a choice with higher stats with drop rate included.

How is this even possible to be a topic to *** about, it's still the same ***if your not happy, they just added a fkn option to it.

Fkn morons *** about anything.

You have a valid point but don't you think you're overreacting just a wee bit? Pretty aggressive there lol ^^;

How do we win?

You use the butterflies to exit. If you got a drop it would have appeared in your inventory.

Were numbers ever run to confirm if the new process was better or just a more direct option?

Don't need numbers to quickly conclude the new process is much worse, even if targeting one drop. The rate at which a reward item drops is much lower than the 1/3 chance of seeing your boss in real SR(~1/5 to 1/10 by reports).

It's mostly for people who can't solo the original version.

I blew through about 2million bayld looking for some capped Malv's never got them doing the random way with a party, so I went in on SCH direct path Ingrid, got all my Malvs in 400k bayld.

I would just drop a sc+ light helix on her and she would die. Drop rate seemed to be about 7-10% on the pouchs with the items

The new way to do SR was never about making drops easier, it was always about letting people solo it that either could not solo it or didn't want to group up. It's obviously worse in terms of getting drops, with a good group you can clear it in a few minutes and spam it over and over.

Ugh...

I did a few times to have my own conclusions about this (as i just need a couple of pieces).

First very bad thing I noticed is that the decanter gave me a scroll for a trust i already have, while that dont happen on normal route. Gonna keep the scroll to see if either the decanter gives me a new roll or just gives me nothing.

About odds, 6 decanters in 36 fights. Gonna keep counting it in the next few days.

I did it a bunch too since being back. I didn’t keep track but the decanter drop was pretty low. And on my first drop it also gave me a trust scroll I already had.

I assume TH does absolutely nothing for this since drop is personal, correct?
