    Makes sense to me. Just hard to believe the drop rate has not been changed, especially at Maleba Island. The huts were just for farming and had an almost 100% drop rate in the past.

    I'm more of a camper... I haven't even finished a trial, heh. But, I'd like to, at least, farm some orbs for friends. After doing 5 huts and getting 1 orb, I started a trial which gave me 1.... Woooo... 1.

    Oh well, they can always buy orbs with RP's.

    Hasn't been changed intentionally, maybe. But it's definitely lower than it has been.

    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.
    Not convinced. My guild had no problems with orbs the last two or three bosses and the trials were running then. Before trials we had so many orbs that i never donated mine and i ended up with up to a thousand of them on me and the guild had at least a few thousand in surplus after the boss event was over. In the last 2-3 raid bosses, orbs have been more scarce, but we always ended the event with at least several hundred in surplus.

    Something is clearly amiss this round as we were completely dry already with well over two days remaining. Down to the last day now and it's crazy buying orbs with honor (one at a damn time, I might add).

    Maybe it hasn't been changed recently , but the drop rate has decreased from 6 months ago . As some one else posted the trial offer harder enemies with higher rewards but fewer kills than the traditional LTQs so fewer drop chances .

    huts on Maleba Island were never good for orbs in my experience, they are good for box events though

    This is the problem, the drop rate needs to be increased because with the Trial Quests, we don't kill very many mobs for our energy.

    We are still having the orb shortage. Why?

    Well, perhaps you could increase it then please. I have completed 6 levels of a trial; not one orb has dropped. We are at 28/33 and we will not finish. People have worked hard. Many have spent hard earned money. I have spent all my honour on orbs, as have many others. Please fix this for us all. Thank you.

    We have a new cycle, with Raid Boss (Belschnikel?) @ 11 days away, and no orbs are dropping yet.

    Clementine, we need orbs. It takes @ 9000 orbs to complete Raid Boss. We need them to start dropping right away at a faster rate then the last 2 RB events.
