    Raid Boss Folder Drops: Info

    Hey all, a lot of people have been wondering about the folder drop rate in regards to this event (and in general), as well as the intent behind the drop rate and the ones in the store.

    The general intent that we are looking for is for folders to be special as drops but not prohibitively rare. The goal is to have most factions have enough of the things to make good progress and/or complete the goal chain with the folders collected, assuming everyone in the faction is generally active and out doing map jobs the rest of the time. We don't want to have people swimming in thousands and thousands of the things (without intentionally doing that as a goal, anyway), making them basically another concrete drop.

    The goal is NOT to encourage people to have to buy them in the store. Those are in the store to help accommodate less-active players who still want to come in for the big events (so convenience, basically), and also for factions who want to go all-out on extensively farming a given raid boss at the start of the event (it happens). That is the goal with those, convenience and going beyond the necessary.

    This is, given the various activity levels of individuals and factions, pretty tough to balance. And we wanted to see how the current drop rate played out before altering it. Looking at the numbers across the board, the drop rate was a little lower than it should have been this time, and we'll be granting some folders to people for the raid boss event (40 per person, to be exact). This is actually a bit more than is needed to make up the average gap in what people should have, but we wanted to go a bit generous just in case. We will NOT be granting folders every raid boss, and we do not want to set that precedent, but we also want to make up for the estimate being off this time.

    We will be tweaking the drop rate going forward to be a bit more reasonable, but again, the goal is not to have everyone swimming in more folders than will ever be necessary.

    We hope this clears things up some.

    Great 40 folders...

    To offset their losses they just increased how many folders it takes to attack a boss - no big deal though - who really cares about the consumer? Guess we all have to find a way to gold hack

    Thanks for the explanation. A day of two earlier would've been nice.... but, better late than never.

    I know gold hack, but only works once a month.

    During the event. Also, Browner, in general I would suggest that you should not take things that were dug out of in-test content as gospel.

    Well I'm on 19 hours a day... I was able to get 9 folders. I can almost summon a tenth of a L100 boss.

    Once...

    Maybe if we could get folders from PVP also and allow us to start collecting them right after the WD event, it would not be that bad.

    Lol. 40. We have 600 right now. Let's say we are at max for faction. So an additional 2400 folders. 7600 to complete (estimated). 3000 < 7600. Lol. Nice one!

    That's great CJ but another question when is the event going to actually start and end. Like exact time the event will start. I mean is that asking to much?
