new gold nerf

Ok so a the maintenence brought on a few patches. And the first thing i notice when i start grinding is that the gold is nerfed by approximately 30% of the original, already nerfed amount. And it's not announced.

Thanks gamigo. Good thing that it's just in time for the double gold drop event :thumbdown:

I noticed that the drops are altered too. I went to ToF got get some SP and in the first room all that dropped were 2 Tokens. Usually I'll drop at least 1 or 2 weapons, a moonstone box, Holy Water of Strength or a dungeon ticket. Odd!?!

AP or not AP? (Now IC or not IC?) That is the question...

Thanks gamigo for fixing this swiftly.
I tested today and golddrops seems back to normal. To tell me i am trolling when i get golddrops 8k when it's usually 24k or more. When people constantly disconnect etc and you have to take actions. That's just ugly. But from now on i will restrain myself from reporting bugs and glitches and problems.

Happy gaming

@divataroza - This thread was talking about the Gold Drop Rate, which is a somewhat fixed variable that, accoridng to Pruss, had changed without reason and thus was perceived as either a mistake by the devs, or a bug brought on by the patch. The Drop Rates for regular items, while certainly a set variable, isn't set and are always random, aside from the Map Bosses.

There are also a number of other things that may be different from how they were "a few months ago" that could affect your drop rate, such as your character's level, if there was an event running back then, whether or not the drops you remember were with or without Lucky Scrolls and other items etc. And, as already mentioned, Drops will always be random. I farmed A LOT in ToF while grinding for gold on Horizon and the drops between my runs could differ greatly from time to time. Sometimes, I only got a single wep and sometimes, I'd drop 8 of them, and that was without anything else changing between the runs.

*bump*

Who would have thought that golddrops would be nerfed again after the drop event.

Fix please :huh:

It would be really nice to hear a response to this from the staff besides "you're trolling".

Gold drops went back to normal during the double exp/sp/pet exp event, were doubled during the double gold/item drop event, then went back to being nerfed as soon as that was done. I can't tell exactly by how much, but it seems like the current rate is about half of the normal rate.

Assuming that gold gets returned to the normal rate, I will be sure to take some screenshots of the normal gold drop rate so I can show you that we aren't trolling (if it happens again), but are actually concerned and frankly annoyed about an issue which affects the server economy, especially on Horizon, where most people struggle to have any gold as it is.

Hey Scimitar,

I don't know if you have been in the game recently but I've been leveling in Trivia for the past 2-3 weeks now, and the most gold I have gotten was around 24-25k gold, now I'm getting around 5-12k gold. The OP isn't making this up, there's clearly a nerf in gold drop

Just to give a starting point for deciding whether gold drops have changed and if so, by how much...
Over a period of 2 hours in ToF with a lvl 60 character, the average drop for cave 1 (30 spiders) was 21,800
with drops ranging from 15,300 to 27,100. This means that the average drop per kill is about 730 gold.

As weapon drops are worth about 70,000 to 90,000 each, even after the npc price changes, this is a reminder that gold drops in ToF are not going to be a major contributor to your wealth!

Guess who was a statistician in an earlier life :)

Hi guys,

Sorry I haven't responded before now. Let's check it tomorrow after maintenance and see if things are back to normal for what you guys recall. Someone be sure to grab me a screen shot today of whatever the gold amounts are for possibly Seeker of Darkness(?) or another place where the change you all are talking about occurred.

Then tomorrow, if anything is changed we can see it and get this put to bed. Strange things happen in Last Chaos from time to time, we all know this...so anything is possible. We know we did not purposefully change anything, so not real clear on why this could have occurred at this point. Maybe with more information we can figure it out.

Thank you all for reporting this, I appreciate it.

Do mobs gold drop any decent amount of Gold to begin with? At this point I've come to the conclusion that there is very little money to be made from PVE in this game. Gold drop is useless and so is selling stuff at the NPC. I don't know why they are shy to tell people it is a pay to play game and be done with it.

Having just spent an hour in ToF with the same character at the same level, I can confirm that the average drop for cave 1 is now 40,674 ie twice what it was on Monday. So it appears that something halved the gold drops and that it was corrected when the servers restarted after todays updates...
It suggests that running a double drop rate event causes the rates to be reset to the wrong values on its termination...

Thank you for letting me know. I will be sure to record some numbers today so when we run another double event, I can check them after again.
