Up until last week, I was farming Frozen Abyss for Fortune Boxes. They were showing up 10-20% of the time, and I’d get the rare Legendary (I believe box rate was 5%)
Well, the boxes stopped showing up for 3 days, so now I farm OD6 for gold like everyone else… I have to say, it’s getting stale and boring
Thankfully, we have the auto-play, so I can run it in the background while checking out the forums… I still find the gold farming tedious and repetitive
Bring back Item Farming in a fun and engaging way, that just takes some of the repetitiveness out of Gold Farming… I call it, “Where’s the Box?”
- The idea is very simple. Every day, Tacticsoft places 1 Fortune Box, amongst 1 of the 7 boss levels (last mission of every stage). It would appear at Normal, Hard or Insane difficulties, but only 1 Fortune Box is awarded per 24-hour period (maybe 12-hour if they’re generous )
Let’s face it, Item Farming as is, is dead. They’ve killed it with the really low drop rates. I get it, they’re wanting people to pay to get ahead. Gone are the days of getting 3-4 Fortune Boxes/day.
My suggestion then, guarantee us at least one per day (or two), while making Item Farming fun again. Players will have to finish the boss levels (at the highest difficulty they can handle) until they find the box. At least this would cut out the monotony of just farming OD6 all the time.
As a side benefit, I would suggest for at least the first month this is rolled out, have everybody’s Fortune Box on the same Mission. Post a little blurb about how it works, and encourage players to check out the Forums for more info. I’m sure someone will post where the box is each day and players will at least come to the Forums to find out. This will increase traffic here which I think is a good thing. After the first month, make the location differ for each player to make them find it on their own.
Before answering the poll, I do realize that we would all like Drop Rates increased, but the trends are obviously the opposite, so this is sort of a next best thing approach
