    Many newish bps cannot be clicked because the new animal part drops are a little too rare. In theory this was adjusted in the last VU with parts that were previously dropping as singles, instead dropping as stacks. I know its been less than a week but I wanted to get feedback to the devs in time for the next patch that there is no apparant change in loot balance. Items are still turning up on auction as singles. When I talk to people who sell to me the tell me they are only seeing single parts drop.

    Even if this were to be addressed, I don't believe its enough. They need to drop more frequently. I did the 4.8k halix mission and looted 5 tails. I have bps that use 10 tails per click. In 2k oro kills I am yet to loot a skull. Another player who sold skulls to me said he looted 2 in 8K kills. I have bps that use 8 skulls per click. At this rate it will be many months before I have enough to do a small run.

    Please revisit this issue with MA. Not only do the multiple drops need to be sorted out but the frequency needs a little boost also. I have no problem with them being rare to control the amount being crafted and to give hunters a little bit of MU loot but the current implementation is no good.

    Good. Much of our hardware *does* require drops from our animals. If we can't make them, there is less demand for them, and thus less demand for the other Arkadian ingredients like ores that are used as well...

    Yesterday, hunting Kiana got 48 ears (about 500 ped turnover)
    It's more than it was a whole week before the update

    Same thing with the teladon feet. Looks like the supply problem for animal parts has been fixed (maybe too much the other way!). Now we need to see if more of the instance mob parts are also dropping (they're used in certain BPs).

    I'll be reviewing the situation over the next few days. I need lots of oro skulls, tiarak and bela nails, halix and madana tails, karlmalden's lower jaws. Let's see whats available.

    MUCH better! We can actually start creating enough Arkadian hardware to compete with the other PP BP's...

    Beladoth nails might still be rare, at least on youngs. I hunted them for a while today and just got back spikes. Ofc it could just be the normal loot wave.

    1000 madana killed to get enough tails for 1 click. The balance is still way off.

    Yeah I haven't found any frakit and cordul since I found them for Kikki's event. I guess Mindark still trying to find the right drop rate for them.

    There was a small cluster of rare mining loot which now seems to have dried up. Am not able to replace the weapons I have sold :(

    gorbek and frakite i still seem to find on occasion, however never amped so far. as for animal parts, i seem to be getting some whenever i kill 2-3 of em, but since i don't actively hunt that might just be luck (clearing mobs of my claims)

    yes but its specific animal parts that are the issue. a bunch of new parts were introduced in (I think) the march release and were added to bps.
