Stone droprate reduced?

Post by Hellomynameis » December 5th, 2012, 4:55 pm

Have I been very unlucky with my latest pet battles and daily quests the last 24 hours, or has the upgrade stone dropchance been reduced this last server maintenance?

The first week I got many, and even two all-round stones, but the drops just seems to have stoppped. I know RNG actually never guaranties anything, but still it seems odd when it coincides with a server maintenance like this. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Perhaps its just my paranoia sneeking up on me..

I've actually been wondering about it myself. Had bad luck with stones after the patch (leveled two pets to 25 and no drops) and also got only one raid pet this week.

Well, I didn't get a battle-stone from wild encounters until yesterday after over 400 matches. It's all about RNG. It doesn't like me. :(

It's felt like that to me for the last couple days to me as well. Off the tamers I only got one stone yesterday and none today, while prior to that I was averaging two to three per day. However, a few off days now and then are to be expected. It could be the drop rate was tweaked during one of the hotfixes, but it could just as easily be the fickleness of the RNG.

I've not seen a stone full stop from ANY world pet battle, the only ones I've ever got (3 in total) were from daily bags...

I've done (combined) around 3500 battles, and nothing to show for it :(

RNG...

Seen two stones since the patch one all round and one undead stone. Been doing the dailys. Gonna say RNG.

Got a Humanoid Stone off a Kun Lai Runt when I was trying to capture one of them tonight, made it easy to upgrade my uncommon to rare. Only time I've seen a stone drop outside of bags. Still haven't seen a universal stone, just Magic, Dragon, Humanoid, and Beast stones so far for me.
