    No offense, but the history of this game proves that they could try to change a grass tile and mess up the drop rate...

    Very true. Nothing in this ancient code is so easily changed without messing with something else.
    However history also shows that the RNG is a huge pain even if the drop rates are perfectly fine.

    From past experience most of the posts about 'why did you nerf the drop rate?' when no such drop has been documented in a publish get answered by 'we didn't'.
    RNG can be very cruel sometimes.

    I agree with you, they did change the drop rate in Despise and they didnt tell us! Its been this way for around 3-4 weeks now. Before you had a 50/50 chance of getting something. Now i have done 4-5 runs without getting a single drop. Then you get a drop then nothing again for 4-5 runs. I had been working Despise since it was revamped and I now dont bother since the effort is greater than the reward

    I haven't done Andross so I'm not sure what all is involved .i.e just how much more work and time is involved compared to other bosses/peerless.

    What I can say is even with drop rates "supposedly" low , items are being farmed so often that the game gets flooded with them.

    I once went 0-80 in the Twisted Weald. I've also did 17 Dreadhorn in 1 day and never received a Crimson Cinture.

    However I completed 5 Dreadhorn on another day and received Crimson Cintures back to back.

    I'm not for all items being hard to get but I am for most of them being items are constantly being farmed.

    I'm glad drop rates are low for certain bosses and spawns...they should be.

    The amount of joy derived from the encounter with Andros declines exponentially with the number of times you've defeated it. The only reason players do this boss is for the chance at the drops. If the drop rate is too low, honest players will not waste their time as they can do something else and then buy the drop down the line from someone else.

    Petra is quite correct.
    My son and I did nav for 4 days in row for 5 to 6 hour stints and got little tidbits in scrolls but the 5th day back to back Tangles for a total of 3 that round. RNG is moody.

    That's putting it mildly.
