    Default Pinon drop rate increase

    Hi
    Given the low drop rate for pinion in CITW and the overwhelming demand from all sorts of different builds, please increase the drop rate. My archer would really like one in less than 60 runs.


    Or, add the weapons to FoT. Wouldn't that be nice.

    thanks
    Why not invite your spouse to play?

    I think his point is that once the base weapons aren't needed from citw, it will go the way of the titan raid because most people just find it long, tedious and laggy with a bad storyline.

    Imaderp. TY for pointing out the obvious.. For some reason I thought he was talking about the spell web (probably cause it's my fave spell in the game) and my mind couldn't get past that.

    I think they should add a vendor to the game that allows me to trade in 20 raid bypasses for 20th reward list. Really it's all mathematical.

    20 Raid Completions = Loot List
    20 Raid Bypasses + Time = 20 Raid Completions

    substituting we get

    20 Raid Bypasses + Time = Loot List

    All that's left to decide is what Time should be in the equation. Let's be very generous and say that a CitW normal completion is 40 minutes.

    20 Raid Bypasses + 20(40 minutes) = Loot List

    20 Raid Bypasses + 800 minutes (13 hours, 20 minutes if my math is right) = Loot List

    So I cash in my bypasses before I hit the sack for the night and by lunchtime the next day I can have a 20th list. At 3000 TP per list, Turbine will be rolling in cash. This alone should be enough incentive for them to make this happen for all those that just want to replace "time" with "money" in the resource exchange that is this game so they can get their loot faster than ever before.

    Not necessarily true, therefore invalidating your whole argument.

    Agree, my ranger could use a third pinion.

    Oops, is that rubbing it in?

    It's a simplified formula to be sure. For it to be entirely accurate you'd have to factor in lag wipes, disconnections, player ability or inability, random cats walking across keyboards, Turbine faulty logic and the sarcasm in my post, which itself invalidates everything I said anyway. Even then, your first completion won't cost you a bypass, making the proper number 19 if you were theoretically running them all back to back. There are some raids that just plain don't wipe unless some outside force acts on it. CitW is one of those raids. You could, in theory, just recall and keep coming back in until you get that completion. Outside of bugs, power failures and server crashes, you will get that completion eventually with a few solid group members.

    Not really. I've actually been thinking about the benefits of fully upgrading my third and fourth Pinions.
    Would be nice to have 1 for DR, 1 for Devotion/Repair, 1 with 1d10 ice, and 1 with 1d10 fire. (already have Devotion and DR breaker)
    Of course if I did this I'd have to farm out 10000 more drowshoods for force ritual, and another 40 FOT's for comms... /sigh

    nerf ranged damage, well, just nerfing monkchers the demmand will decrease dramatically, problema solved and in the way turbine likes

    also for a 20th reward i would do:

    X timer bypasses(times u need to hit 20) + X*10 AS = 20th completion

    20 bypasses (2-3M pp) + 200 AS isn't a bad deal

    ROflmao
    psykopeta - hoarding pl, for the sake of hoarding, the day i become ubercompletionist will be because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...
