More anti virtue dungeon questions.

    1. Is this point based like tokuno?

    2. Do points accumulate when you kill any monster of any anti virtue dungeon?

    3. Do points reset other than when you get a drop?

    Thanks!

    Dermott has already answered all the questions most correctly and briefly, but I'd like to add a little extensive explanations what his answers are based on.

    A number of interesting and useful items will now drop in the anti-virtue dungeons of Britannia. The items will drop using the Treasures of Tokuno drop system (meaning the more you kill, the more likely it is that you will get one of these items as a drop.)

    1. You will get less credit towards the new dungeon drops if you are hidden when the monster you are fighting dies.
    2. You will get no credit if you are more than 16 tiles away from the monster when it dies.

    "How is the drop rate for these items determined?"
    The event uses the Guaranteed Reward Point system, which was created for the Treasures of Tokuno event:

    1. This system keeps track of the monsters you kill in the event area and gives you an increasing chance to get a special loot drop as you kill more monsters.
    2. The loot will appear in your backpack.
    3. Monsters that have higher fame increase your chances faster. (Keep in mind that monsters in Felucca give 30% extra fame.)
    4. Higher luck will improve your chances for a loot drop.
    5. The overall loot drop chance for this event will be lower than ToT, as we are planning for it to run for quite a while - very possibly permanently.
    6. Your points DO NOT reset if you log out - no marathon hunting sessions required!

    Keep in mind that at no time is a drop guaranteed, it simply becomes more and more likely - so some people will get lucky and get them quickly, and some people will be unlucky and take longer.

    "Does being in party affect the 10th Anniversary Event artifact drop rate?"
    Actually being in a party does not affect the drops or the points given out out all. However, if multiple people are fighting the same creature - whether or not they're in a party - that does affect the rate of points given out.

    To get points, everyone must make the top attackers list. (The top attackers list is simply the top 16 damagers.) So you can't party up then let someone else do all the work, and still get credit.

    Next, points are scaled based on where you are on the top attackers list. The overall highest damager will get the same amount of points he would when soloing - everyone else will get increasingly smaller amounts, down to about 1/7 of the usual if there are more than 12 attackers on the list.

    So while fighting with two or three people could be much more efficient in terms of kills per hour, and therefore total points, having a full group may be less efficient for the people who tend to do less damage. On the other hand, if you want to take your crafter out to do some hunting, pair him up with a fighter and make sure he smacks each critter at least once, and he will get some credit for the kill.

    If you're hunting in Trammel dungeons, the drop rate is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. Don't be surprised if it takes weeks to get one. Best to consider them a bonus drop at this point instead of a primary reason to hunt in the legacy dungeons.
