    I did the otorugi brain grind from 1 to 5 and then stage 6 6x before it dropped but not to me. I'm about to begin the same on the Hadraada (or perhaps zadul) and unfortunately on a very subpar spawn. it will suck (because of the poor spwns) but hey someone has to do it.

    Dna is meant to be rare and could be a symptom of the little turnover those mobs really have compared to calypso and competing against LAs that have grinder events like sanc cove and my own songkra valley.

    In the end, for many mobs, the dna bounties are meant to be an incentive to grind the mob. For upper level mobs like Korwil and yuka and kamaldon.. I can see how 15k isn't enough to get people moving on top of the fact that so few can actually hunt them.

    I want them to drop and hope the land area owners get what they want... because I did Minus the last piece. I want arkadia to have many options for the increasing player base. Future is positive for arkadia.. although a recent development with a scammer has put a bit of a blight on the planet.

    If i know the A-team, I'm sure they've already begun having the drop the dna nao discussions with mindark. So yea... would be worth going after them. if we haven't seen any drop in 3 to 6 months, that is a very serious problem for arkadia and mindark.

    If stage 6 is roughly 10,000 kills, that would mean 1/130000+. That's less than 0.000007692. You are off by a dozen of magnitudes. :p

    However, probability does not work like that. Just because you flip a coin twice doesn't mean you get one heads and one tails. The probability might be set to 1/100000 and still require 1m kills to drop.

    I have seen more hadraada globals in the last 2 months then I have seen in the last 5 years so I guess the bounty is working to some extent.

    But I would figure that more unique mobs would increase hunters, but I guess since that is controlled by MA and not ARK that would be detrimental to there revenue so I would assume that makes the drop even less likely.

    I was guestimating I didn't do the actual math but I knew it was below a fraction of 1%

    It's not just the bounty.. but it is a mob that many can grind. Yuka, kamaldon, and Korwil require upper level gear, bankroll, or dedicated teams.

    Cobra has lost tons of peds farming kamaldon (he deserves the drop). Try doing yuka for 4 hours when you don't get a global and on an average bankroll. The risk of ruin there is more than 50%.

    Depending on maturity.. I'm estimating stage 6 to be 6000 kills if doing only youngs. 6000 kills is about a 50k cycle.

    I'm almost finishing zadul stage 4 what means more than 6k kills, also on first days of bounty saw lots of players saying they'd finished stage 5. Also if you check my EL profile you will notice that zadul is my most globaled mob. So people are right to think DNA part is a myth to be on loot. I have screenshots of all my globals, and I'm sad to say that after shrapnel no global brought anything usefull except for the last one that gave me a melee trauma amp II, even not full TT was the first where shrapnell didn't take over loot value

    Stage 6 is 60k kill points. That's 6000 x 10pts for youngs. So yes.. it is 6k kills. That's why cobra, myself, and others can complete stage 6 missions so many times. In comparison to kill based missions, stage 6s are cake.

    Zadul drop esis and teleporation chips. But yea.. shrapnel takes away from item TT but from my view, that's an okay thing since oils and other stuff would do the same thing.. it is just easier to notice since now item loots are often just that and shrapnel Instead of a variety drop.

    My issue with loot on ark isn't shrapnel but that any time we have a piron rain (like the oratan event and smugglers dropping them like candy).. the entire arkadia hunting experience takes a massive hit.

    I would consider trying hadraada. I think it would make a better pair with mutated nusul anyway.

    I am a couple hundred away from completing Stage 5 of Zadul with no luck yet. Going to move over to Hadraada (10% complete Stage 5) for nothing more than a mob change. If I attempt Stage 6 Zadul, it will be only higher maturities for the Kill Points.

    It is a total grind but having bounties to chase makes this game sooooo much more enticing.

    For that I thank players such as FiveDolla and Cobra for giving us hunters lofty goals to aim for!

    just saying I said this a week ago - last land claimed >>>> small patch >>>> UL piron and Zadul DNA drop next day

    Could be coincidence but I don't think so.

    My next theory is they released maybe 2/3 and are leaving the rest for a later time....

    perhaps. It was a matter of time anyway since it was almost 4 months since I gave the call for those dnas.

    I do know that yuka Korwil and kamaldon just got significantly more expensive.

    No,

    BIG Industries is not looking for any Kameldon Parts, We are still looking for the Yuka Skull plate.

    No. Zadul,otorugi and hadraada skull plate are on my list not that I need another hadraada skull plate. So the last paragraph is false. Lot of beladoth brains have dropped.. apparently we have a dna priority problem in the loot pool.. so that bounty is lowered since it really isn't rare.
