    It's been close to 30+ rounds now, with 10 of them being solo.... still not one arty.

    I was wondering if maybe during all this patching if something reverted back to the old system?

    I dunno man, I've kinda noticed the same thing...I went 6 hours one day without getting one, dunno how many rounds that was...but when they first changed the drop rate, I was pulling one ever 1-2 rounds lol.

    I am still pulling them at the same rates I was before perhaps your just hitting a dry spot where you need to build the points completely to 100% for a drop to occur? I remember back during treasures of tokuno I would hit bad spots where it took forever for something to finally drop.

    hehe yeah .. I'm great at getting dry spots .. if it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have any I swear.

    At least before there was a chance altho slight of getting an arti off every darkfather and room boss.

    now I've killed upwards of 30 darkfathers solo and then the rooms and not a sniff of an arti [​IMG]
    I wonder how many points exactly I need to build up :-/

    *edits to add this*

    Not that I'm complaining mind you, imo it was a bit extreme when artis were dropping every other monster, I even have my crafters wearing spirit of the totem's for the str bonus. Now when I get an arti drop .. the 'wow I got an arti' factor will be back .
     
  7. Tested it and got one artefact in less than four hours... but not many on the gauntlet.

    Still the same old(new) system.

    Okay here is my tally - I didn't really get to doom much this weekend. Over the week and last weekend (16-17) I did 21 rounds of doom with a varying number of people (but still 21 trips; remember 5 rounds, 5 people, 5 arties (1 for each?).... and did 12 rounds solo - just me...

    I didn't get one arty. It feels like it used to (if not worse) before the change. Apparently the point system was disabled - or the drop rate lowered from like 5% on DF to like .5%.

    33 rounds in doom... not one arty - even with 12 of those rounds solo... something isn't really right there..

    (PS: someone did mention that a voice of the fallen king was dropped while I was there; so it's not like they AREN'T dropping)

    Well, it cannot be worse than before the change, since before the change I got exactly one in much more than 100 hours, before I gave up.
    Ok, it can be worse, if the insurance bug hits the artifacts you carry with you.
    I did not try the changes, since I never really liked Doom and real life things are keeping me away from playing.

    Well I used to average about 1 arty per every 13-16 rounds solo..


    What I think is that during one of their recent patches/publishes, that they might of broken the point system. If the point systems were semi-visible; it would be easier to report bugs.
     
  12. I got two drops in about 4 hours, about 20 to 25 rounds, with about 7 to 10 people there. I am shocked to see plenty of people there on chessy after 12 pm the past few nights...it's been nice.

    ...
     
  13. I got my first couple ever at the weekend, guildies are getting frequent drops, so seems fine, only thing wrong is that most arties these days are pretty useless. [​IMG]

    That would be cool if we could track our points.

    on my archer i get drops every 5-10 rounds and my tamer every 10 to 20 so im assuming it does a top attcker check to see if the top attacker is due so this might effect the lower attackers drops since the higher attackers are getting the drops

    Yeah, i haven't gotten a Arty in at least 20 Rounds now, and i'm using a Macer/Paladin that dishes out high damage.
