View Full Version : Drop Rate

<p>Is there anything that can be done to get a better drop rate for solo players. Now I know this is more group based as games go, but there has to be something like uping the rate if you kill a ^^^ when solo only, it is simple programming. Now before you flame me, I am not looking for drops falling like leaves. But right now I play an average of 3 hours a night after work and get a fabled drop once every couple of months....now if you work the math on that rate and include the odds on the item actually being useful to me toon, the numbers equate to me fully decking out my character 2 years after my life expectancy of 75 years old, and I'm not kidding. Gotta tell you that kinda bites.</p><p>Or maybe throw in random named that pop up in random location from time to time that can be soloed.</p><p>Does anyone else have any ideas on how to better this problem.</p><p>And before you say "group" I am fully aware of that. My point is some fun can be incorporated for soloers...going months and not finding anything usefull kinda sucks the life out of it.</p><p>Maybe there is named I can solo, I am a level 48 zerker so if you know of any please let me know...Thank you</p>

Soloers can already get nice gear for soloing at decent rates.  Fable gear wasn't meant for soloing.  Hence the low drop rate.  Plus a lot of the treasured EoF dropped gear is better than fable.

<p>Thanks for the info, I will hunt more in EoF.</p><p>I just like the excitment of the drop, otherwise I am just killing to level and that isn't much fun at all.</p><p>It is that "holy cow, sweet item thrill I like" But can't really get that soloing and grouping is just hard with limited play time.</p><p>They should make a solo only server...<img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

Depending on the class you are playing you can also visit heroic areas as they get green (stormhold is a good example). These areas usually have named mobs that have a good chance at dropping masters. EoF does appear to drop alot of legendary armor (alot of it is no trade) but with the increase in drop rates there is still a great chance that you can quickly get some nice armor for your character.
