    Is there a bug with the drop rates for these and 105s? I mean, I used to get 105s every now and then and would come away from any spawn with at least 1...but the drop rate is so low for the SoTs that they're pretty much useless considering it will be nigh on impossible in obtaining the ones you want! Can u make them so they increase any skill that you have turned up in the skill menu...otherwise please fix the drop rate. My premise is that with soulstones, one can stone a rather difficult crafting skill to your spawning char, and be able to play the game to increase your skill rather than mindless grinding/macroing(attended of course) that is completely boring and can give you carpel tunnel if you do it manually!!!

    On one side, I would really love your idea for taming - it's a pain to gain.
    On the other side though, GM/Legendary would become even less special through that idea and there are already enough people wandering around with fully skilled chars that don't know anything about using their skills properly...

    one of the main reasons they should remove 'jewlry skills' . nothing like pretending you have a skill .

    There are bags and bags of these for sale in Luna already and it's not even been a week yet.
    I seriously doubt there's going to be much of an issue regarding the drop rate.

    I haven't gotten any of the SoT scrolls since the emergency publish. I still have 6 in my bankbox from the first day of the Publish 57, but have yet to get anymore, even after doing at least 4 or 5 champs each day. (not to mention soloing first and second level spawns on many, as well) I think I've gotten two 105 scrolls in all of that time, as well. They've definitely turned down the spawn rate on them. =/ And no replicas for me either. I got a swamp tile earlier on the Tokuno champ, which excited me. Hehe

    Ok I don't mean to sound like a whiner, BUT I have gotten a grand total of 2 transcendence scrolls in the last 10 days. Is there a glitch out there? I have done at least 8 champ spawns tonight and killed my fair share and got zero scrolls.

    Was this meant to get more difficult with time? Anyone know the exact formula/odds for drop?

    Oh yeah I am on Great Lakes Shard.

    I get an SoT per champ average. sometimes I don't get any, others I've walked away with as many as 4. The system works fine, the only mistake is with pscrolls since the replica release.

    There doesnt seem to be a glitch...im on GL as well.

    Some days you get lucky, once had i think 8scrolls and a replica between 3of us in i think 3spawns, others your unlucky 0 scrolls 0 replicas on mayb 10spawns its hit and miss. all in all tho id say fine.

    I'm exactly the opposite, I didn't get any the first day and since the emergency publish, I've received about one scroll every two spawns (same amount of scrolls for necro-mage, weaver-mage, archer and tamer).

    I get the most scrolls from Baracoon (easiest spawn to kill) and the least from Semidar (the spawn that kills me most often).

    Can't these scrolls be stolen, even in tram? I've seen a number of theives working the spawn in Tokuno on Chessy. Anyone with the snooping skill could pick out one of those scrolls in someone's pack and steal it easily enough. I know that I'm not watching my backpack much while I'm fighting and people walk by one another on a regular basis during combat.

    So assuming I'm remembering right and these things can be stolen, would it be fair to think that maybe some people who are getting a lower drop rate are actually getting theirs stolen? Just a thought.

    Nope, can't be stolen outside of Fel. The thieves are looking for new balms and potions which can only be stolen from monsters.

    Maybe they drop more often in Fel like the 10th Anniv. items because monsters there have higher karma.
