    Can anyone confirm that the key you get from a crystal vortex now drops more frequently? Since the change has gone in I have not been able to get any. I'm probably just being unlucky, but want to check with others.

    It's a lot better. It takes normally 5-10 minutes to get the vortex keys (we normally do 3 sets at a time). Serps and hydras are the ones that seem to take the longest now.

    The serp key seems to be a ridiculously slow dropper. I usually get the hydra key pretty fast, but I've gone as many as 150 serps without getting that key.

    Serps have always been a problem. I havn't noticed the vortice keys dropping any more frequent but there are no longer the useless keys dropping on them.

    Although I could almost kiss whoever changed the disintigrating thesis notes to last 5 hours now. Not sure when that was put in but it's a fantastic change.

    The other night two of us killed crystal lattice seekers for over an hour without getting a single key. Never had that happen before. Usually they're quite easy to get.
