KABAL Posted October 18, 2018 Share Posted October 18, 2018 (edited) So yeah! 5 hours ago, Juji said: The Adena drop on these mobs was much lower during the initial game launch. Original Adena range for Trisalim was 41~97, while in latest version it is 111~260. L2Wiki drop table is based on another region's version that is subscription only. Trisalim is a level 45 mob ( https://l2wiki.com/classic/Trisalim ) which on EU Classic for exemple , the Adena drop is 249 - 582. As Juji said, we are at about 0.45% Adena/Spoil rates ( imagine that we were 0.15% before the updated rates ) in comparation with normal x1 rates from Eu Classic, RU, KR?. Mobs from 40-49 gives almost the same Adena as the ones from 20-29 and 30-39 ( between 100 and 250 Adena ) . At lower level's this might be OK, but starting from level 40+, your expenses are much higher then the ones at say , 20 or 30+. As of now, we can afford the SS and even SSD since we don't need D armors and the prices for D shots are pretty much very cheap because of this. Now imagine at C grade. You can't possible think that this rates will also work on C+ . The increases rates from last week helped to get into D ( somehow ) , but the ideas before the update remains : On medium/long term, this is not sustainable! When more people starting to get into C, CRY D's will see a big raise in price, since people will need them to buy armor/weapon from the Luxury Shop. This will then be even worst for low level players. For best in-luxury-shop weapon, you need to pay 5375 CRY D and 1075 CRY C. Yes, you can also "craft" them . Well, we can barely craft D's now because how bad the spoil is. Good luck crafting C's ( not even talking about B's ) as spoil will be even worst at 40+. At this rate, the majority will be in C in around 6 months ( if we still play this often as now ). After 2 weeks we are in D ( thanks to the free armor set ) and most with still NGR weapon. Now, Juji said we should see updates much more frequent then on other regions. Now the question is, why bother? Or what kind of updates? Adding anything but increases in adena/spoil/drop , will be useless. At some point, we will probably see increases in adena/spoil/drop rates, but maybe it will be to late, or maybe is just me. I say : Increase those rates for VIP's in the same exact way as drop rates currently works. VIP4 will get max of 50% increase in adena/drop/spoil . In this way , revenues will come to NcSoft since people will be more inclined to spend $ in the in-game shop in order to get the increased rates, and also, we will make them not add P2W items anytime soon. Right now, I see no desire to spend any $ in the cash shop. The 7 day 50% XP Rune is really NOT worth it since XP is not a problem. I am still trying to figure it out how one will justify spending $ after the first month to keep VIP 4 on since 50% increase in drop rate is .. basically non-existent. I am also wondering how a new player will justify spending 4000 Ncoins after the Launch Packs will no longer exist to get to VIP4. They will need to come up with something, or we might end up with P2W items. This is not for "PRO" players. I get it, you live playing 10+ hours a day in Lineage 2 , but .. you are in the very, very minority part of the community. ..or maybe is just me and everything I wrote makes no sense. So, yes or no?
