    According to mob level Korwil should be the most tuff mob on Ark (i dont know how they calculate the level or if the level show how tuff a mob is?) atleast it is the mob with the highest level here.

    What i dont get is that this kind of mob dont drop other items than Herman CAP-404 Arctic (L) and esi.

    Ofc i havnt killed all Korwil here but I have done a pretty high amount of them (http://www.entropiatracker.com/viewMob.asp?MobID=308) until now and the only items they have droped to me is 3 time Herman CAP-404 Arctic (L) and 3-4 esi.

    No armor - no healing tools no nothing zip 0 none - and that i find strange.

    I dont know how it is with other mobs - but i did get a Canis harness discovery from a much smaller mob.

    Is it totaly wrong to expect that this kind of mob should be able to drop other kind of items than the two kind i got? And the gun dosnt even come in hof's.

    Yes as said i find this strange.......

    I killed quite a lot of the younger ones. I didn´t get a single item. It's a strange feeling for sure and makes you wonder why you actually hunt... I don´t know... However the almost complete lack of item drops is a general problem so even though the Korwil are some of the toughest mobs they are by far not an exception. An amusing fact is that I got 2 items from Oro (tiniest mobs) and 1 from Yuka and none from the HUGE ammount of other mobs I killed. Whoever balances the item droprates must be really really dedicated to ruin Arkadia for hunters. It´s a tough job since Arkadia is a lovely place to be but from my POV he´s getting it done soon.

    L numbers are meaningless and totally stupid.

    Small Korwil are near Cheetah Digsite around 11600 25700.

    The item drop rate does seem very off balance. over 20 days i grinded Teladon and only thing i got was a cap 202. did about 20 halix today and got law 101 then did 1200 oro and the second or third oro dropped cap 10 and a few later law 202. I vever had any items from any of the yuka huon or any other mobs. and I have cycled well over 100k ped im sure

    If anyone wants a set of Lemmy Plates to go with their Polaris for camping the higher maturity ice cats, let me know, I have enough resources now to make a set or two to order.

    Still no change in item drop from Korwil - and i guess other mobs too - Is this what we should get use to here - I think it will be nice with some official responce before the space VU.

    Simple to figure this one out...

    Arkadia comes on line...80% of player base or more on Calypso comes here.. Arkadia gets great reviews and comes online with minor issues not major flubs. Calypso revenues drop in a major way...MArco whines and cries all day in office ....Balance manager is told to play sneaky snake with drops and to tilt the world in a bad way to get players back to Caly so Marco STFU.

    Calypso will ALWAYS be MA's baby and will ALWAYS be the standard that the rest of the game is "Balanced" on. You really didnt expect change from the good ole boys club did ya?

    There's a real opportunity for Arkadia weapon crafters here. I just wish my crafting skills were higher than lvl 1 so I could cash in.

    You missed the good news mate. Marco has most likely been fired sins I cant see how SEE would keep SDS around sins Calypso got reposesed by MA. Well now Marco has a new use for his "It's Dynamic" saying when asked what his profession is :)

    Besides I went back to Calypso for a bit and guess what, Item drops apear just as low there as on Arkadia

    Nope - i use armor - and hunt all from young to stalker - what i was talking about is that they drop almost no items (No armor - no healing tools no nothing zip 0 none - and that i find strange.
    )

    And yes Stalkers are fun..... :)

    Judging based on the arcane, the byzantine, and the pervasive screw-ups, there seems to be an entrenched dickhead at MA posing as "balancing manager".

    After summary/no examination, all issues and suggestions are answered with: 1.this will create a balancing issue or 2.MA does not comment on this.

    I hope now you get it.

    One of my friends always tells me regarding things that are impossible.....Shit in one hand and hold "Want" in the other.... see what ya get more of.

    As for the balancing manager I always picture a low level programmer standing near a scale..on it there is MA's income from us..on the other side is what we put into EU. When the programmers tells Magnus the scale does not balance correctly that MA is getting too much he walks over with a Doobie in hand, places his boot on our side of the scale and tells the programmer it is balanced and to take a little more from our side to give a little profit to MA. When he walks away the MA side falls to the floor and the programmer stands there baffled.
