View Full Version : @ sirius or admin Very confused with drops on LTQ Oracle's Odyssey

The Armor weapons and units seem to bounce all over the place in stats.

Normally the stats increase as you go up it seems that the stats go from higher to lower to higher. Maybe this would have been a better distribution for an April's Fools quest?

Sirius was this an intentional distribution or did some numbers get switched around by mistake?

Just out of curiosity :)

Could you go a bit more into detail maybe provide some examples of what your seeing?

Thanks!

Sirius if you a get a second take a look at the spreadsheet contained within this post

http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?57455-The-Spreadsheet-for-LTQ-Oracle-s-Odyssey-is-up-and-running-again.

Just scan down two columns, the Attack and Defence columns for the units/items that are dropped. I think what Tempus and a lot of us are saying is that one would expect units/items to get exponentially higher as you delve further into the depths of the LTQ...but what we're seeing is (for example, these are made up numbers to illustrate) getting a unit 1000/900 then a unit 500/350 then 840/1100 then 1400/1300 then back down to 550/700 or something.

Doesn't make a great deal of sense really, plus big spenders would I'm sure argue that the further you get into a quest, and therefore the more you spend in gems, the better the units should get. (I realise that a gazillion low spenders will now flame that this isn't fair but so be it).

In fact to be more specific as requested (I was being lazy before)...the exact stats of units won when you enter Heroic are in order;

1963/1309
458/306. And odd drop from the unit before...maybe that was just a reward for getting into heroic?
480/393
1309/873
1472/982
1636/1091
1963/1309
2520/2061 looks normal for a while, units getting better each level
589/393. Then a huge drop back down in stats for the next levels...
916/611
655/436

As Tempus said, I too am just curious whether this is intentional? It kind of looks at face value as if units are in the wrong order, or is there an intent behind this?

Thanks l3lade2, love the twist on the profile name the l 3 was a nice touch for a B.

Sirius here is the link to the spreadsheet it isn't complete yet but there is enough there to show what we are talking about.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgCUTOSskdQjdGlOWW4yTWJaQUxJSUt6clRTeXlEe UE#gid=69

Not really a big deal to me but out of curiosity was interested hehe.

If it wasn't intentional maybe show it to the teach department so if it wasn't the intention they can see what went wrong. :)

It was nice having high stats units at the very beginning of the Heroic side so not really complaining at all.

Also while we have your attention haven't seen a bonus unit in the LTQ's in a while do you know if they plan on putting an occasional Bonus unit into the LTQ's again it was always nice to see one on occasion.

Thanks for such a quick reply to my question.

Reward loot aside; has anyone else noticed the grammar errors in the names of the MOBs and rewards?

Didn't really look jonny, hehe I am not the best at grammar spelling or Engirishi :P LOL

Did you find something funny or is it just straight up errors?

The distribution of prizes in this ltq is more interesting and would encourage more players to buy gems to complete it, if they did not know what the other rewards were going to be. Personally I was tempted to buy some gems to complete this quest once I got that great sword so early in the quest.

The sword is nice if you are a warrior :) I have to say my alt is quite happy.

Yep, I'd say never complain when you have a good thing. I was happy to have that sword come early.

Good your referring to the units. I went back to the spreadsheet and noticed I had misspelled Odyssey on one of the headers before you caught me on it. LOL

It is crazy to think I was getting paid $45 dollars an hour teaching practical English at after school programs for 6 years in Korea. LOL I am horrible at spelling. But feel free to jab at me if you see me misspell something. :)
