Hey Folks,
The first few days of November patch it seemed I would get a drop every other claim, sometimes 2 in a row. After this recent update, I decided to update my pc version and post my character up at the camp all Saturday, while I played modern warfare. I woke up around 6 to find Chonchon just standing right in front of me, killed it, and continue to get every claim without losing it once (didnt really have competition) and didnt recieve a drop until the ninth straight kill.....

I wouldnt normally ask, especially if I was going to sale it, but this was for a friend whose ninja just hit 37, so back to the question did they lower this mofo's drop rate?

If so, let the prices climb back up

I think someone is just upset that their only method of farming is falling in price rapidly.

Glad you think that this my only method of farming (really good one, right up there with richard pryor), no one really get upset at video games, but since you did share that your head is stuck up some trolls ***, tell vigor and stanflame I said Hi.

Damn Folks, you could of just answered the question, guess I'll go back to smoking a blunt and playing modern warfare

thanks Krionin, no change then

Impossible, no maintenance has been done to that zone, get over it you have bad luck, it was shiny and new at first but people are realising that the belt isn't any good. It won't climb if its a 1% drop rate, let it go.

No one's arguing that Swift isn't better because it is, but saying that Headlong is useless is kinda lol. As I said before, not everyone has Swift or better.

lol wut? who the hell doesn't have access to Sacrarium in this day in age? its not like CoP is hard, and shitty drop rates it may be, but you can at least hit get TH2 on that ***, and if you are not bringing TH2 with you when you do that, then you are sorta asking for it to not drop, its not like what they could have spent on this belt (230k at the time?) they could have bought 2-3 codex's with that and had 2-3 chances to get the belt over holding onto this piece of crap belt.

Yes, that's why I still see people shouting for help on CoP missions and hear of friends helping out others who had not finished the story because of broken statics. And not everyone has a TH2 on call or have one that's willing to go be a TH *** for that belt. I personally had a hard time finding help to go for that fight so I went with another BST and had to duo it, went 1/11. In before 'lol you should get more friends, etc.'

Back to the original post, yes me and some other campers have found that the drop rate seemed to change after the Nov update. I don't think its that drastic.
With TH3 i was getting 60% drop rate, with streaks of 1/6, after update it dropped to about 30% or less for me.

Haste 3 isn't that much in the levels you can't use swift, because you can't stack it with anything else (WTurban, Dusk, Homam, Blitz(chances are you don't have at this level), Nashira, Raparee, Etc; Etc;) get a different belt, one with accuracy, or somethng.

I killed the first Chonchon on Fairy and didn't get drop. If only I knew what it did drop, I would've stuck around and made serious monies :<

Anyway, given the sheer volume still for sale on Fairy's AH, I don't really think much of a change has been made.

I like how no matter what happens, when something doesn't go the way someone wants it, they all come to the same conclusion..."SE must of made a hidden/ninja adjustment/fix/change during the last update."

suck it the *** up. you had some bad luck deal with it. Just because you didn't get the same results every single time doesn't mean SE went in a ninja fixed something with out the community knowing about it. If was something that needed fixing SE would have addressed it in the update notes or in maintenance notes. If it wasn't addressed someone would have found out by now, especially with how much that NM is camped.

Has SE ninja'd fixed things in the past? yes they have. Would SE have had a good reason to do it this time? Not likely. Is someone butt hurt that they sat there and killed the same NM 9 times till he got the drop? Sounds like it to me.

Don't fix ***if it ain't broke. Happy camping.
