    Is the drop table for Mount Suvius during the Rampaging Worms challenge broken? I only played one round on Inf1, so could just be terrible PRNG results, but, other than random blue and purple junk from the worm mound, the other 4 mounds produced a single blue item between them. Three of those 4 mounds didn't even drop 1 copper, were completely empty.

    Oh boy ... you're funny ... wake up ... stop playing if you don't know what you are doing

    Another victim of _AutoPickup_ who was too busy fighting to see what was gotten.

    This is why I say there needs to be another section of the "chat" window for "System Messages" that lists everything that was picked up. That way we could see the exact amounts and quantity of those "it dropped on your head and you didn't see ya got it" drops. :)

    AutoPickup is great. Just saying we need an event list for it. :)

    Other than the Rampaging Worm, I was completely alone and stationary when opening the 4 mounds which dropped only 1 item total between them. The reward sound played, but there were no on-screen text messages that we normally get when something is auto-picked, and nothing (other than that one blue item) on the ground (yes, I used CTRL to look for difficult-to-see drops). So 3 of 5 mounds dropped nothing at all.

    Is it possible that I missed a "+791 coins received" message on one mound? Sure. But on 4 mounds in the same map on the same run? No.

    When I ran the challenge in Spiky Valley, most mounds dropped a flawed gem. I don't demand a gem from every mound. Others dropped a blue or purple piece of equipment. I don't demand that either.

    But absolutely nothing 3 times in one run? Didn't feel right, which is why I asked if others had a similar experience in Mount Suvius.

    I never said anything about progress. I know only the Raging Worm drops progress. My toon isn't anywhere near strong enough to attempt to fill one of those mini-challenge progress bars.

    I was talking about the miscellaneous other item drops. In both Fortress Teganswall and Spiky Valley it made economic sense to pay 19 andermant for the drill bits because 2 or 3 of the 4 other mounds (i.e., excluding the mound with the Raging Worm) dropped gems. So in each of those runs (I did two in Spiky Valley, only 1 in Teganswall) I paid 76 andermant total for 2 or 3 gems which normally cost 31 or 40 andermant each (I only dropped defensive gems; if I'd dropped offensive gems, the bargain would have been even better), breaking even or actually getting a deal depending on the gem count for each run. As a consolation for the mounds which didn't drop a gem, I got junk gear. Not a huge reward, but the gem drops essentially offset the cost of the drill bits.

    In Mount Suvius I got nothing.

    Dude you are playing it wrong. these mini challenges aren't meant to farm gems + the drills you can get them from the worm (inf1+) in the castle and of course you can use some andermant to complete the gap if you need more in exchange of filling the bars to get polished gem bag,altered crescerites,few clovers ... then the cost and effort worth it.(it's best to be played in group)

    but if you insist on farming gems from this event worms then go to toxic fume event each worm drops 2 gems so at least 12 gems without the boss. so it will suit your desire of getting gems without andermant.

    Now in order to farm gems you have a large choice. the whole duria offer gems as a drop with 0 cost all you need is search in youtube on how to farm them and you will get tons of ideas on where and how to efficiently farm them. q5 mini bosses is one of them.

    @chrif ... I appreciate the input, but I didn't mean to take the thread down this particular rabbit hole.

    I'm not farming the mini-event. I actually stopped playing the main event entirely after getting the radiant gems near the top of the second progress bar. Despite the fact that I first created an account in 2014, I've taken multiple breaks and changed servers and character types, so my main toon isn't strong enough to make completing the event feasible. I did a few mini-challenge runs to see how well I can handle Infernal 1 in the scaling natural world dungeons (mobs, ok; however, the worm kept me dancing and required at least one revive each time).

    My post was focused on drops from the mini-challenge mounds and the variance I experienced within an extremely small sample size between different mini-challenge maps (profitable in Spiky Valley and Teganswall, a waste of time in Mount Suvius). As a still developing toon, I wanted to test what I could in this event, knowing that BP will roll it around again on a semi-regular basis.

    I understand that many players consider events reserved for only true end-gamers. Personally, I think that's a myopic perspective. If we continue to push new and newly level cap players from playing, guess what? The servers will continue to shrink and the game will shut down that much sooner.

    That said, thanks again for your response.
