Balic material/Crafting material droprates need an increase? 43
No, it's fine as it is. (5) 12%
Yes, Increase it by a LOT. (38) 88%
Would it be at all possible to maybe increase the droprates for Balic materials and other crafting materials like designs by a factor of maybe 1000?
Right now as it is, a huge portion of content is being deprived of the community.
The crafting is damn near impossible.
Leveling a craft uses firm balaur materials, however these do not drop enough for crafting to be viable unless you have 1 billion kinah laying around.
Back in the day you were able to actively spend your days farming balaur mobs in gelk/ingi/BT, and you could make all the kinah you needed that way by looting balaur materials and selling them.
This is not possible right now. They simply do not drop.
Same goes for designs needed to make expert/master weapons/armor/acccessories.
They are almost non existent.
I would like to enjoy the crafting experience that 2.0 "potentially" has, but as of writing this post, it is not posisble.
We are now a month into 2.0, and I've seen maybe one or two people with a 500 level craft.
I haven't seen any designs drop myself and I can assure you I've been farming countless hours.
We are not in Korea, they might be ok with this, but this EU community really wants something different.
The longer this is not implemented, the more Classic Aion will suffer.
