    I understand current Monster Hunt events are just a filler because Ghost Festival's been delayed.
    But it appears no feedback from the past has been taken into consideration :/​

    It's nice to be able to obtain a mount that is otherwise only available from (un)lucky spheres or as purchase rewards for some 30k ander.
    But I've played this event for a little more than 3 hours so far and I'm half way through the progress bar. So this means that it's necessary to spend at least 6 hours grinding within the 24 hour span.
    Also it appears difficulty level has no effect on drop rate or stack size of hunting badges. So I'm forced to run normal or painful difficulty since it's the fastest for me to kill everything. And of course the location is Great Desert because of the number of mobs there and their respawn rate.
    So in short, it's a 6 hour grind within 24 hours on one and the same map on normal difficulty for a bunch of very unlucky spheres and a mount sphere that can, by the way, give you a duplicate as well.

    I tried to collect badges in some scaling dungeons and pw too. It's pointless. Evergreen Oasis was worth 3 badges on painful. Stonekeep 4 badges on fatal. And so on. Without the buff you absolutely have to run Great Desert for at least 6 hours.

    Also btw. I noticed there was no buff in shop before they put the servers down yesterday for maintenance. Now buffs are available. Idk, it seems like a cash grab.
    Why does this company treat players so badly? :( I know, it's just mounts, but what else do you want to collect in this game? Why does a free player have to grind for 6-7 hours to get one guaranteed reward? It's not worth 5k ander. 6 hours is the no buff base time, so I'm counting with that. You should be showered with rewards for spending 6 hours in this game in a single day. On the same map because running any other map would extend that to 12 hours or something. It's actually awful.​

    Just as a feedback, I did one Q6 (Mortis) and killed enough mobs to fill up the green bar. 2 maps + Mortis = 1 badge drop somewhere at the end of second map...

    yes, the pw are the worst map to do this event

    But it seems they lowered the drops in the great desert as well

    Yes, they did. The Fox map has better drop.

    They could at least give us +1 badge per stack for 30 seconds. Or something along those lines.
    This could ideally, without letting the buff run out, halve the time needed to complete the progress bar.

    Edit: Perhaps some sort of stacking would be necessary. Like for example: In order to get the +1 for 30 secs, you'd have to collect 5 badges first, or something like that.

    what do you mean? they lowered the drop in great desert and massively improved the drop in FBI?

    It is evident that BP lowered event drop on Great desert map. I only wanted to point out that, according to several posts on Czech forum, the Fox map has better event drop than the Great desert map. Plus player can get wisdom rune on the Fox map (I'v got 7 wisdom runes yesterday).

    FBI again?
    I know other maps that are having at least twice as better drop than FBI.

    I made 3 laps around the Great Desert and only got 7 progress. The first day and the second the drop rate was so low every where I tried that if I was to play for 24 hours strait I'd only get 450-500 progress. Not possible to finish.

    Today, not even caring about it.... Was helping a guildie get the last of the 320 deer kills in Wildherz and clearing most of the first map resulted in 25 progress in one run, 2.5 x best run prior. Go figure.

    is stonekeep one such map?

    Or did they move the drops in the pws?Because i did arachna and it did drop better than desert

    The drop is reduced badly.
    As a comparison ... I could finish the previous BIG Monster Hunt (1500) events with a single big buff and I only needed to farm for 100-200 more after.
    During the first event on Friday I bought one medium and one big buff ... and I didn't finish the event (facepalm)
    I left 6 badges short
    and these three events were small (750) ones.
    Nope :p neither of them

    it seems they are hemorraging money very badly if they have to resort to such tricks, it's not like this event wasn't a money grabbing piece of trash before, but they managed to make it worse

    It doesn't exist though

    You probably do not mean maps like Loxley chambers or boss chambers in the normal world, right?
    Or are you afraid bp would see this and nerf the drop there?

    Lets see you do that without buying the buffs. I'm betting that you can't.
