Battle-Stones (lower drop rate with 6.0?)

Postby Katfu » October 28th, 2014, 11:51 am

Has the drop rate of battle-stones from the bags after completing daily master tamers been decreased??? I do about 10 daily and have not even had one battle-stone drop since 6.0 went live. Anyone else notice this???

Drop rate hadn't seemed to change for me, like before I can get 4 stones and 0 the next day.

I have only done a handful of tamers since 6.0 so its a very small sample and I couldn't tell you if the rate changed - but I did get a stone from one of those bags, so I do know that they still drop.

I have had les time than usual to do tamers since 6.0, but cant say i have noticed a drop in the rate of battlestones dropping. I got 2 on saturday and 3 on sunday from just doing BoF and pandaria tamers.

It feels pretty much the same to me, doing the Pandaria Tamers/BoF + the 5 world tamers that drop bags I still usually get a few stones per day.

seems like its RNG is RNG again....I had a day with FIVE stones, then the last three days I have got zero(I do every bag daily)

I am more annoyed with the decrease in gold for old pet battles. I really liked that aspect. sure, 20 gold isn't much, but if you are doing 40 pet battles, you are bringing in solid cash, 600 is legit for a daily round of battles. but if you lower it to 6 gold per, I am seeing 240-250ish gold. its just a pretty significant hit for those who were OK doing all the pet tamers(even non bags) for the experience because at least there was gold involved. now its not even a blip. that and the removal of lesser charms from winning a pet battle, and its kind of BS IMO.

but IMO, something changed with the bags. I used to get 1 less common item, now its like it allows me to get another item, just seems like a different loot table.

It may be RNG but I have also noticed a lack of battlestones since the patch. I get between 0 and 3 a day if I am lucky. I used to get more than that. Usually I get about 2 a day and various pets that I don't need. I would rather have the stones than the pets.

Everything seems the same as always to me. I do my full set of satchel dailies every day, that include non-Pandaria and BoF, and some days I get 0 stones while others I get 5. There may be some times where I go on a streak of 0-1 stones for a few days in a row, and other times were I get 2-4 for a few days in a row.

Don't get me wrong - I hate seeing those 0 stone days, but I have missed VERY FEW sets of dailies in nearly a year. Things seem the same as always to me.

My feel is that there are fewer stones dropping now than before. I've done the dailies every day for the last few and I'm not finding as many drops as normal (same goes for pandas/spirits)

Funnily enough, I was thinking the drop rate had been INCREASED.

Or maybe it's just my luck that's finally changed.

I do all the MoP dailies (including BoF) pretty much every day (when I have time), as I still have a few pets to level and also to get more stones ready for WoD.

I am finding stone drop at a similar rate, or at least seem to be. Have not noticed any change.

I have collected 30+ stones since 6.0 dropped and sitting on over 150 total.

Similarly, I have found the drop rate to be unchanged since 6.0. Still getting the same amount of stones as before (on average).

I did the rounds once this weekend and got a fair number of stones so I'd say everything is normal.
