    They fixed the gem drop rate with this latest hotfix, so a big thanks for that.

    what does it mean? they increased it to before r214 or lowered it?

    When 214 was released the gem drop rate was considerably lower (many commented on it). With this hotfix, gems are now dropping again at regular intervals. It seems to be back to pre 214 levels or at it appears that way to me.

    There also seems to be a few more legendary items dropping after the hotfix.

    I'm now averaging 5 gem drops every fifteen minutes running inf 2 maps, so I have noticed a big increase after the hotfix. I did not notice any reduction in wisdom (other than they took it away from normal Balor/Asar) or ander drops.

    Not only gems, but Andermant and Wisdom drops are also back to normal.

    there is a problem after release 214 its about draken cores ,please make it at least aviable to buy at merchant .got 6 event gears to augment and craft that means 400x6x2=4800 draken cores needed(and this without counting tier8), how im suppost to farm cores since new moon and full moon are limited number of time to kill bosss ,and even if i kill the boss not 100% i get draken cores since augment and soul drops too ,please do some thing about it its so frustrating to continue playing like this ,add draken cores to merchant ,or add it to drop from pw or remove it and replace it with materia cores .if this continue you may add infernal 5 and we still augmenting our gears to lvl7 .
    thank you

    You can buy ess and scrolls/vials for andermant :) BP tactic. But yeah I farmed 50x i1/2/3 event and 140cores and then only prisnite/sould(which I have more then I need). It should be 100% or draken+augment cor only+we could buy it from gnob for drakens, because prices of items are high(2h 8999 T7, rly BP ?) we can spend drakens for runes and nothing more, or we could buy it for clovers again we can buy only runes and S.O.Is(not bad, there are good rewards especially for 5 S.O.Is) nothing more.

    I played 4+ hours today (not exactly fast farming, my toons are still too weak to be efficient) in real world and full moon even maps, Normal or Painful modes: 1 flawed cyanite (from a regular mob). So, I'm in the same boat as you.

    I know it'll be boring as heck for you, but would you please consider running 15-30 minutes in Painful real world maps, tell us if you're still getting gem drops?

    The divide between true end-game and casual / new players still seems like an unfathomable, unbridgeable chasm to me.

    There is no problem. Draken Cores drops as before. It is slightly reduced due to not all Core drops from the event bosses are Draken Cores, but the drop rate is over 90%, so I wouldn't worry about that.

    You could have farmed enough cores from the Winter event, which if You haven't, then You can wait for the Undefeatable event which is also a great event to farm Draken Cores.

    I would not bet on it. DtU drop tables will likely be changed just like everything else has. There is really no other reason the passes are turned off now except to mess with the drops.

    It was never a good event to farm Draken Cores. Only two of the 8 bosses you could fight dropped Draken Cores and the odds aren't even 1:4. Further, because most people are farming keys and key drops don't improve with difficulty, you waste a significant amount of realm fragments. Unless they seriously rework the DtU format, it is not what I would call a good event to farm Draken Cores... let alone a "great" event to farm Draken Cores.

    I'd wager that the next "great" event for Draken Cores will be the Dragan event, if you can find a good team of 4 other people who are willing to share pearls and maximize their runs.

    The divide has been that way for quite a few years now, by design, but yes it has gotten far worse. However, I have not been a true end game player since level 45 was the max level.

    After the great nerfing of R155 I lost every bit of desire to become so again. Why bother putting in that amount of time and energy just to have the dev's take it away from you.

    Today, I can solo any inf 2 map with ease, and if I choose to actually pay attention I can solo almost everything in inf 3. I do not have nowhere near the HP or resist to attempt inf4 and quite honestly given the lack of rewards, have no desire to waste the time and effort to try.

    When I play, I actually do run the normal maps (desert specifically) 99% of the time. I tend to run inf 2 on that map because it is quick enough to farm gold without having to pay any attention to the game at all. The gem drop has been consistent since the hotfix, dropping 18 to 23 gems per hour.

    However, as a test, the next time I log on, I will run the desert map on painful for an hour and see how many gems I get.

    Edit to add the pic for painful drops:

    I ran the desert on painful for 1 hour - 6 minutes (taking time to go to town and selling). I got 13 gems.

    If I did multiple hours the average per hour may be a little more or less. Still not nearly as bad as it was when 214 first came out.

    Wisdom Trait Bonanza (up to 106% increased coin drop) does not affect Silver or Gold coin drops. Fix this please.

    The Wisdom Trait currently seem to work only on Copper coin drops.

    So my post is purely subjective but I will put it out there anyways. Immediately after the release I noticed the massive reduction in gem drops. I could go hours in the desert without a drop and when something did, it was usually a flawed ruby. Before the release, rubies were almost impossible drops for me. I read the posts about the nerfed rates, and then read the posts about how they had been fixed. While playing I definitely noticed they had been fixed.......for about a week. They seem to be back down again though, but again this is highly subjective. I will say though that I have been putting in more hours these past few weeks so my basis for this claim has a good deal of time put into it.

    The larger point that concerns me though is the ruby drop rate. Since the release I've picked up enough rubies to make a sacred and a few polished; more than in almost a year of playing prior to the release. Now most would ask why I am complaining, and I am stating I am not; I am worried. Usually when the DSO gods perform this kind of sneakery, it indicates an upcoming change, usually not in our favor. So while this is purely speculative, I have an ominous feeling that they are looking to yet again change the meta, specifically around damage. I hope I am wrong and just talking out of my backside, but my gut tells me to grab ankle.

    It may be worth considering simplifying the many dozens of herbs and stones that can be collected or mined to a much smaller variety of 2 or 3 .. eg a health herb, a concentration herb, a damage herb.
    I, like many other people ,are put off farming/collecting them and using them on workbench to create tonics etc as too many mind boggling connotations to easily remember whats what.
    Similarly bring back single type of health and concentration potions ..far too many varieties. All this unnecessary complexity putting me off using these things - simplicity is best.

    they don't understand inflation or at least they have a partial understanding of it
    They seem to think it only applies to clovers
