    Does anyone know if the Sot drop rate was changed? In the last couple days I have done a dozen champs, gotten one replica and a deco item...no SoT.
    Has the drop rate on the rares surpassed the SoT rate???

    I did a Rat Spawn yesterday solo up until Barracoon arrived and not one SoT. I thought that was very odd, because I thought there were always 1 or more per spawn. I would love to get 1-3 per spawn. I maybe get one every third or fourth spawn, but of course, I generally am one of six or more ppl spawning. Last night was most certainly an exception.

    20 to 30 Spawns in last 3 days, 2 Deco not 1 SoT.
    Done Tok & Oaks up to 10+ candles alone & not one SOT from any. Only the 1st & 2nd Ish spawns I had done when this 1st started did I get any, in fact had 8 in less then 3 or 4 spawns. Then nadda since

    I have 10-25 points each in skill points for Musicianship, Peacemaking, Provocation, Forensics Evaluation, and fletching. My aim is to GM those skills exclusively from SoTs before end of March.

    SoT's have been scarece lately I agree, however i've bone over 30 ish oaks spawns with mostly 4 or less people not one arty drop. Now there's something definately wrong here.

    drop rate is absurd :(

    sometimes i get nothing in 5 spawns, and sometimes one char. get 3 SoT serial
    my fighter get much more then my mages

    also the 100% useless SoT´s like fokus and such, laughable :(

    I think that when you people make these SoT drop rate threads, you should definitely indicate which facet that you are doing the spawns at.

    I regularly do both Felucca and Trammel spawns, and from my experience I would have to say that the Trammel spawn SoT drop rate is consistently lower.

    In Felucca I easily get 1-3 SoT's per spawn, in Trammel I feel lucky to get 1.

    drop rate for sots in ilsh/tokuno is definitely a lot lower than fel, I've done many ilsh spawns and have only ever gotten 3 or 4 sots, in fell sometimes i can get none from a spawn but other times when me and my gf do a spawn together and i protect her we get 9 sots from one spawn, guess the trammies gotta get brave if they want em :)

    The SoTs in Trammel currently aren't meeting the expected drop rate. It's unacceptably low at the moment. That has been rectified and will be in Publish 58. I will make a more detailed post about the champ spawn changes and answer some of the questions regarding the rewards distribution (replicas, SoTs and PS) in the next FoF.
     
  19. Thanks, PsychoKinetic :)

    So...in other words, now players can be even less knowledgeable about the skills they employ, what with insta-gains and such?;-p

    No not at all. They are such a small gain .o1 to .1 and are so price that they really only help to boost you over a slow spot or if your in the only gain one tenth a day. 115 skill or above.

    Regine,
    Nice to hear more details will be given to us regarding replica, sot and PS.

    Just a thought about SoT: if fel gives 2x other resources, shouldn't it gives 2x points on SoT as well? Currently, tram give 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5 SoTs (average points: 0.3), and fel gives 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9 and 1.0 ones (average points: 0.8). That is 33% higher than what it should be (average 0.6). In other words, fel should give SoT in the values of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0.

    It is not a game breaking issue but it is just inconsistent with the 2x resource rule and tip the risk/reward balance favoring fel quite a bit.

    this i am guessing has not happened yet ?
    the drop rates are horriable both in fel and tram rulesets , and the champ drops are even worse.. i still am waiting to get a drop.. grumbles .. all but giving up on doing this anymore it's turning to be worse than camping doom.

    SoTs are not resources to be farmed and as such have nothing to do with the x2 resource in fel rule.

    However, if you want to apply that rule to SoTs then be my guest, but apply to Replicas also, so that there will be x2 the chance of getting replica in fel for every spawn ;)

    j/k

    I must have missed this. Explains why I have not seen more than a .5 (don't go to fel all that often). I thought I just had really bad luck to keep getting .1 and .2 in the rare instances when I received a SoT at all.
