Black stone drop nerfed???

Recommended Posts

Usually while grinding on the pvp server for an hour I’ll get 50 black stones. But since the new events with 30% drop rate and on the pvp server instead of 50 I got 4. What’s going on??

It’s not rng mate just did another hour at ghaz bandits and got 1 black stone.

Gahaz is not a good spot for black stones. 

Go desert nagas.

Best spot to farm blackstones is defenetly Cadry  - 1 hour Grind 45 Weapons 45 Armor stones - in total round about 100 in average, i grind there most of the time. Also Cadry rings, even if they dont sell well (they def. do after 1-2 days) drop good.

For me is everything normal, BS drops as normal as they did before patch for me.

Before at Susan’s and ghaz in an hour I would get between 40-50 black stones. Since this event dropped I’m lucky to get above 5 done about 3 hours at each so far.

To me it seems like loot tables are on weekly rotations one week I'll do well another week it's complete crap but I'll have lots of luck enhancing or something else same with the ancient relic frags before I'd get 6-7 a night now I'm lucky to get 2-3

It's pretty easy for them to modify the loot tables during the weekly maintenance. They basically removed relics from fishing with that fishing event. 

One thing I've noticed throughout my time playing on the Xbox is that during events when mobs drop items that can be combined to make an RNG box is that normal loot drop rate is severely gimped. I guess they don't want people making too much money.

Day to day reality in black desert.. Yesterday I got only 5 scrolls over two hours with loot scroll at gahaz while I got 10ish an hour on Monday.

The healthiest thing is not to expect anything to drop, keeps you sane.

I have been experiencing exactly the same thing Danny, I was going to post about this and found your thread.  I noticed the change in drop rates 2 days ago.  I would normally get 50 - 70 black stones at Cadry and a ton of weapon drops.  After doing my normal daily grind I got 1 armour stone and 7 weapon stones.  I moved to Desert Fogans yesterday.  After killing over 2000 (I know it was over 2K because I am using Marni stones)  I had virtual no item or black stone drops.  I made just over 3 million silver for over 2000 kills and collecting every drop.  I was going to ask if this is something to do with Mystic because I was using a level 60 Lahn prior to the new update and I am now using a level 57 Mystic, is she broken or has loot drops been broken or nerfed?

The other thing that makes this EVEN WORSE is that I am using a KAMASYLVE'S BLESSING , was on ARSHA server and my Cadry node is rank 10.  My knowledge item drop rate is 7%. I activated the blessing the day after noting the very low drop rates I am now getting.  I should be getting 20% more and it seems I am getting even less.  I am going to keep a log of my drops and if anyone else is doing the same perhaps we can post them here and see if this is only affecting some players.
