Hey guys, I have a question, does anyone know how drop rates work in this game? Do you get more drops based on damage dealt? Do you get more drops based on How close you are to the mob? or if you have Aggro from the mob?
I farm with my friend who is a Fighter/Hu, and I am Bow Braver/Hu. Currently when we do the whole damage testing thing I get 1.3mil, and he gets around 3mil. When in ultimate quest he dies a lot more than me, so I figure he deals like 2-4x me. Currently I have around 176 Hours in this game, 60 or so of which have been spent in Ultimate Quests farming for Nem, and Slave weapons.
Now the reason why I ask about drop rates and if they are affected is I always run 250% + 100% Triboost (although the past little bit I've been out of 100% triboost, so I am only using 50%) + 50% premium rate + 40% Daily rate + 20-40% Party bonus, and whenever the song is up plus the premium shifta drink bonus, which puts me at a minimum of around 460%.
My friend uses the same, except hes always used 50% triboost, not 100%, and in the past he's not even used triboost, just the 250%
We basically farm together always, he has yet to farm without me besides maybe like 1 or 2 hours, and I farm without him more than he farms without me. Now here's the part that gets me.
**He has, to date, gotten around 18-20 Nemesis weapons, 1 Slave Weapon + 2 or so Gix Weapons.
I have gotten 0 Nemesis, 0 Slave, and 1 Gix.**
Is this really just RNG? Or am I farming wrong? what should I be doing to do better?
It's gotten to the point where he has around 10x the number of Mesata that I do, despite the fact we both use the same farming strategies. In fact it's so depressing, and he started to feel bad and recently offered to split profits 50/50. While he has been splitting profits with me he has gotten another 2 Nemesis drops, and 2 Gix drops. I on the other hand, have 0 of each, again.
What is going on?
