View Full Version : Tier 4 Rares are too rare / RNG broken?

<DIV>This is no joke or exageration, anyone who has been online for hte last 4 weeks can attest to this, but the drop rate on Tier 4 (EL and Zek) rares is way way too low.  I have harvested no less then 1500 nodes in the past 4 weeks trying to find a HQ Animal Pelt for the Manastone Heritage.  That is over 4500 harvests.  I have recieved a total of 0 rares, 0 from any node at all with skill 222.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The Random Number Generator is either broken, or harvest values for EL T4 are askew.  Now I know the RNG is a sacred cow for you guys at SOE, but lets ace it, stuff breaks and the RNG could very well be working wrong.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>You guys need to look intothe RNG / T4 rare drop rate please, it is sucking the fun right out of this game.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Gherig McComas  </DIV> <DIV>*** WTB HQ Animal Pelt ***</DIV>

I don't know if it is broken or not but I never managed to harvest a t4 rare but got 3 (not counting the 8 luminous) t5's since last Friday. Course all I did since Friday was harvest and I only have 41 peaches to show for it. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Eva <div></div>

I would like to echo that harvesting T4 pelts is extremely uncommon in our personal experince.  That means that we (Zaks and I) have harvested rare T4 minerals, metals, and lumber, but never seen a rare pelt pop out in T4.

I agree.  I finally got a Pelt after prob 1000 dens.  I never got one rare in all of the t4's til then.  <div></div>
