    Lack of Orbs for Raid Boss

    Gree, why is it that this event was poorly planned with Orbs drop being less than any previous event? Most trials or any other event played prior to RB has a fair amount of Orbs dropped to help, but this one there was hardly any. Can you fix the ratio of drop Orbs to aliviate the deficit/poor planning or was it intentionally?
    Just curious how this time almost every guild is struggling with orbs due to the lack of it being dropped by mobs. Any help please would be greatly appreciated by us all.
    Tank you

    For 5,000 Honor per orb, of course there's no shortage of orbs. Not like honor is used for anything else lately.

    There's that option, and then if your guild has been religiously doing trials, they seem to drop just a bit more from those mobs. But yes, orbs are in a bit of short supply this event. Possibly to curb the farming on lv 100s, as they end up costing 225,000 Honor per summon with the orb purchase approach. Pure speculation, though.

    There are a few nice units to be purchased with honor, but basically that's all, and if the units don't help, then buy orbs as what else can you do with it.

    Actually crafting will use honor. I suggest not to use all of your honor or dont use it at all.

    Saving HP's for crafting? Instead of buying orbs for RB...

    ...last time I bought orbs & used up a million plus HP, GREE did that "Spend HP's" quest. D'oh!

    Maleba Island Huts are definitly not dropping like they used to (for me at least.) 5x gave 1 orb; was 100%.
    Boo to lowering the drop rate there.

    Just double checked on this. The drop rate for orbs has not been changed.

    Hard to believe. I've never seen so few orbs dropping before. CIP: Maleba Island Huts.

    Anyway, the drop rate needs to be increased then.

    Just a suggestion.

    With the [current] elimination of Individual LTQs, and the introduction of Trials in lieu of, this is where the source of the problem lies at. Trials are extremely less # of kills per stage, and aren't necessarily something being shoved in everyone's faces 'Do this as quickly as you can in this short time window.'

    As a result, less mobs killed = less orbs. I'd suggest possibly upping the drop rate on them by a few percentage, because we no longer have quests where it's kill 20-30 of this one enemy type. No, it's trials, and it's hitting one enemy 20-30 times instead.

    You may be onto something, Lys.

    I've done 7 trial levels and killed about 15-17 NPC's and only got 1 orb.
    (in MW, 1 NPC = 5 taps = 3-5 Intel for RB.. waaaaaay better drop rate.)

    Looks like GREE is not going to do anything about increasing the drop rate. Oh well.

    What's funny is that the thought hit me around 2:30 in the morning. Realized that we haven't had any individual LTQs now since the first round of trials hit. We haven't had any Guild LTQs for killing mobs since the cycle after that one, if my memory serves right.

    The only mob killing quests we've had lately are "Complete X trials" as a guild. The individual completion one was also removed, so there's less incentive to keep at the trials beyond personal perseverance and helping the guild. Less mobs are being killed, and therefore with the drop rate being the same in KA it always has been, suddenly there's a massive drought of orbs. This time it was felt even moreso, as the novelty of trials have worn off by now.
