Tight-Fisted Stone Gods

Postby Raptorbait » March 20th, 2013, 11:57 pm

Days of dailies and hours of wild battles and stones are so rare I can't believe my luck can be so bad. Granted I had a total of 4 Porcupettes drop for me so maybe all my luck was used up? Sigh...

So what will I continue to do?

Days of dailies and hours of wild battles. :roll:

In the past three days of Pandaren tamers I got one stone (undead, which I have extras of.) I use to average at least one a day.

I got tired of not getting stones (Nothing from over 30 PVP wins) so I stopped pet battling for now and doing more Player content.

So what happens? I get that Bag of Gold in LFR and a Mechanical Stone was in it

Some days are great… some not so much…

Most days I do all 16 pet bag dailys and some days I toss in the beast daily. I have a route that works with very little team changing.

So here’s the weird part, I open all the bags at once… yup all 16 or 17 bags…is that weird? Maybe OCD? I think I handle the bad days better when I get very little rewards in the bags all at once instead of opening each bag right after doing the daily. Five or so blanks (trash bags) in a row takes the fun right out of it.

Best day ever,17 bags opened; 5 stones (all usable!) 1 panda and 2 spirits. Worst day ever,17 bags opened, 1 stone Dragonkin, yha not usable...ow.

I have yet to see a porcupette drop!

If your worst day is getting 1 unuseable stone, I want some of your luck!

I wish I had half your luck! I've never seen a Porcupette and my stone count is shocking! I think I've had a total of 5? And 2 of those were given to me by a GM >.<

You should, uh, share that route and team set-up... ^_^

I thought it was just my bad luck, but maybe drop rates have been nerfed hard. I used to average about a stone a day (sometimes a day or two with no stone, sometimes a couple in one day). But for about a week I have only gotten a couple of stones, and only in the Beasts of Fable bag. Not a single stone in a Pandaren or Pet Master battle pet reward bag.

I wonder if my bad luck is due to the fact I started doing the dailies on Raptorbait (Alliance-Thrall (PVE)) instead of Igottaweewee (Horde - Deathwing (PVP)). So I'm going back to doing them on the PVP server (ganking someone during a pet battle is a pretty cowardly, btw). Today I only got one stone...a flawless. Decisions decisions....

Ha I'd still take your bad weekend!

Worst stretch since the patch for me? 4 days with no stones or pets in a row... I've have noticed a decline of stones lately too, though I got a panda the last 2 days.

Out of the 17 bags today only 1 yielded a battle-stone and that bag was the FB bag. All the rest contained junk. I treat pet bandages as junk now since I have more than 600 of them already. Since patch, the most I got from the bags was 3 stones but 2 of them are humanoid stones that I don't need. There were days that I got nothing, not even pets. I think my longest was 3 days with zero stones or pets. I don't even get battle-stones from wild pet battles now.

I can't be the only one who finds it depressing to do all legendary beasts and then find 3 bandages and 2 foody tpye things in the fable bag. At times like this, I really want that NPC to be attackable ...

Hehe if it makes you feel better I got less, only 2 pet bandages today plus some magic biscuit, no pet nor stone in the FB bag. Out of the 17 total bags, I only got 1 Elemental battle-stone and another Water Spirit. The rest contained junk.

So far I haven't gotten a Porcupette, however I have gotten various stones (even 1 flawless) from bags AND wild battles during the past week. I've been getting at least 1 stone a day. :D

I think I may open a ticket just so they can reaffirm that RNG hates me...

I got 12 bags today, no stones, and only 4 bandages. Rest were pet cages, spoiled food and grooming kits. Of course, I rarely get any stones, so can't call it bad luck, it's just SOP for my pet battling.

This is really getting ridiculous...I took a few days break from doing ALL the masters...just trying to lighten up...this is supposed to be fun! My first day doing all 14, was only doing 7 for a few days..for nothing yet again :(. I do not understand why Blizz doesn't help us out with this..would it hurt ANYONE to raise the rates some?

I have been doing all the tamers every day, and I have only gotten a single stone in the past week. That is including the fables quests.

Sigh.
