    Dynamis Drop Adjustment Testimonials

    I realize this might be slightly premature right now, but I'd really like to see if people who are planning to do Dynamis soon would mind gathering some information and posting it back here for us to try and get an idea about the new drop rates in the affected zones.

    Of particular interest would be the following information:

    1) Which Dynamis zone was entered?
    2) How many AF2 drops?
    3) How many mobs killed? (Exact would be great, but approximations will work)
    4) Were any abnormalities or changes encountered?

    Additionally, it would be helpful to know which zones the new ToAU job AF2 drops in. Once we know the levels on the equipment, it will be easy to see which ones drop in Northlands and Tavnazia, but we'll need reports of the relic armor drops in the cities and relic accessories in Bubu/Qufim/Valk to determine which relics drop in what zones.

    So, it would be great if people can keep this in mind when they go about their Dynamis activities in the coming hours/days.

    Doing Beaucedine on wednesday, I'll try and parse it.

    Doubt it will be a really amazing increase in droprates though.

    This is a really good idea, I am curious about Northlands drops specifically. I will most certainly post as my pursuit of Cor AF gets underway.

    For comparison's sake, the previous AF2 drop rate with TH4 was roughly ~4% by my experiences, on average. Give or take maybe half a %. That is to say an AF dropped once every 25 monsters. This was the same for cities and outlands both (outlands never had a lower drop rate, you just killed less mobs), and held true throughout the last year or so.

    Also, all the new heads are in Xarcabard, and all the new bodies are in Beaucedine.

    My LS is doing Beaucedine tomorrow at 4:30pm pacific time tomorrow, so I'll report back then.

    Nothing concrete enough due to most people not clearing cities fully and likely not keeping track of monsters killed in Beauc/Xarcabard.

    Got Beauc on Wednesday.

    I really want to think that the increased drops are for all AF.

    But in my heart of hearts I think it's only a small adjustment to compensate for the new AF.

    No, they already said there would be increased drops in Cities to compensate for the new AF, and a further increase in outlands, just to make your AF drop more. Don't worry.

    Doing Tavnazia wednesday, we were originally going yesterday, but changed in anticipation of 500k entry. In the past, we've been lucky to see anything drop in Tav. It's usually 1 AF and 1 -1 AF, perhaps a piece of hydra trash.

    If anything needs a drop rate buff, its 100s. We've been very unlucky, our past 2 runs (windy and beau) we've gotten none. And if they drop, we're lucky to see more than 2.
