Rebirth items

Post by TheAssassin »

Hello Mania!
I'd like to propose a suggestion with regards to RB Items(Aigis,Kripis,Drapurr,Kartas)
As we all know they are quite hard to come by, unless grouped in Sidhe bossing they drop very scarcely in other maps.
Rebirth items are meant to get players along the way through progression of there level and RB.
1. Without mania + it is very hard to make 165 too even complete the tart quest.(Hence why i suggest the next number 2)
2. I suggest including rebirth items into granita park, and incorporate them into mania + quest creeps.
(Why? Granita park will be a bit more active for F2P. Mania + will still also receive RB item drops from the mania+ quest creeps like cynicks,Taunthunts, Dark ogloc.)
Now the rate wouldn't be crazy, roughly the same rate that Neryders(G) Drop which isn't very often. However, hunting parties will be formed by higher levels wanting to Oblivion Shard their gear or Make/Sell RB items.
Just a suggestion Folks, more to come.
I appreciate the hard work of GM Blade, and for the years of service he has done for this game. Long time player here.

The problem is, that every high-level/RB player would continuously farm GP with ease as it is a piece of cake for them. There would be a lot of PKing for resources, and the low-level players couldn't even grind the GP leveling quest easily due to the presence of a lot of stronger chars. If the drop of such items would be limited to players below or at a certain RB ( e.g. players below or at RB 5 could only get these drops, others are required to farm from Hatrel maps as usual) it may have some balance. But still, it'd sound unfair for players who have grinded hard or have other workarounds like creating boosters and lvling through parties. Only solution would be increasing drop rates as RB of char increases.

I do agree GP will see more activity, which is great, but as long as the items are also included into mania + quest creeps like they would be in GP, I predict to see majority of the players like now taking mania+ for the much faster levels and arua. This is more of an option for the players that do not/cant spend money on the game. RB items are flying up in price with RB 12 items costing 15b-18b now.

There is a possibility that more pking will occur in GP, and if it becomes a spot where people are just slaughtering newbs, then the GM has the option to disable PK to this map like he has done before.

Hello Gm,

As a new player its getting tougher to get RB items. Even if I farm tart as per RB, I can't craft RB items as each RB item requires Kartas, Drapurr, Kripis , Aiigis. Its really hard to get those items. Kindly fix this issue and I know I can Eshop MOR and buy RB items but I really cant spend that much.

This can definitely boost the possibility of more mania+ subscriptions for sure, but it sure won't solve the problem for the f2p playerbase. I mean, hoarding can be a big issue if the drop rates are still low and people hike up the prices of said items. Hence a better solution would be a little increase in drop rates depending upon levels/RBs of a character. I wish someone would update or classify drop rates of items on the guide, so players can understand the rarity and chances of getting different items.

And isn't pk disabling only allowed on event maps ?

There is no "fix" for this. The drop rates of the items are adequate. It's just a temporary supply demand issue because more people want the items. It will stabilize over time and we have already revised the drop rates. Increasing them more is not a solution.
