    No one getting any items in the last week? Not sure how we can know that fully, unless everyone who got anything took the time to post it somewhere (and lots don't do that). Sadly I've not had time to get ingame and do any serious hunting in days now, look forward to soon finding some time to test this item drop problem :)
    *Guessing Dante meant he has had none all week, need coffee now to wake up brain

    Cool, just saw a new piece of armor from a mob posted today as well. Maybe still lower than we would like but clearly some items are dropping :)

    Yeah, I was pointing at my own loot window. I don't hunt 10 hours per day but I'm out there quite a lot...

    I sure hope they start fixing it soon! I want to use Arkadian weapons and equipment on Arkadia and being able to play without having the need for Calypso weaponry and other equipment!

    ok to give an example of this item problem. I have been camping teladon religiously since the 2nd day so thats what 12 days now. I hunt about 8 or more hours per day. cycling around 5 to 6k ped per day, more on weekends. I finally looted my first item today from teladon young. Herman cap 303 arctic worth 65 ped. I would say there is a real imbalance here. I am sure the staff know and I have been assured it will be rectified as soon as possible.

    The only way I was and am able to keep going is due to having UL Assassin R150 and UL gremlin armor. Both which I could repair. Without that i would be done... and of course some deposits....BECAUSE MU on loot dropped SUCKS right now. Once more items start dropping and mobs loots is proportional to their hp and lv of difficulty hunters might have a chanse to at least break even. I have had several days where I had hofs and globals and still didnt break even for the day

    Yeah, I've cycled 20k PED now and have looted 3 items (low TT) on Oweko since Arkadia was released I've been camping them.
    Next to that, I'm using Apis (L) equipment with a crazy markup of 134% at this moment. I've used ~20 Apis' so far which racks up a whopping 1300 PED markup spent without any markup in return!
    Having a real hard time staying alive at the moment....

    I came to Arkaida yesterday to avoid space if they force it upon us now. So now that I am here I really hope they fixed the item droprate in this VU. However all the server downtime delay makes my doubts increase...

    I wonder how much the chunk of our returns Calypso is getting is taking effect on this. If an item is set to drop on a return of a certain ped and the % SDS gets pulls it below that the availability for the item to drop disappears. I wonder if its the same for Sotto's as not many are saying they get them here. I havent had one since November or earlier I cant remember much past then.

    What I have noticed, is that I am getting WAY less "This creature carried no loot" messages, and ... I just spent an hour in a solo Oratan smackdown and looted 2 male harnesses ... don't remember the name of the armor though, it was blue. I haven't gone through all my stuff yet, but I know I have a lot of sorting out to do because my loot window kept popping up, so that was nice. :)

    I am wondering if the "rarer items" that are dropped and few between, isn't the "treasure hunt" aspect already put into play?..By definition maybe?..Just thinking outloud.

    I think the no loot is because most of the mobs have a LOT of HP. A lot of Arkadia mobs are around 1k-2k HP and even higher. You could say that where a chomper is hard on Calypso, they are easy up here (if comparing HP only).
    I seem to get as much no loots on lower HP mobs as on Calypso so far (No actual stats but that's how it feels to me)

    I think you may have misunderstood Hon, unless I'm not reading your post right.

    I don't get as many no loots ... during my one hour solo smackdown with the Oratan today, just about every mob looted something, which I find to be rather spectacular and rare considering there were so many no loots in the past. What I did have though, is far too many misses (more so than fails), and that wasn't fun.

    I also got the 2 male armor harnesses as well, which are considered items, so is that good for a one hour solo hunt? Don't know any more, because that was my first solo hunt in forever actually. I've just gone out on 2 Oratan offensive hunts with Chrome's Sunday events the last two weeks, but that's been the extent of my hunting for a LONG-ass time.

    I agree!..I have ran into alot High HP mobs..hopefully they will introduce more in the future that are more mid level (or maybe I haven't ran into yet).On Calypso before Arkadia launched..I was starting to see some decent loots in middle of road mobs,which was really refreshing.

    Interesting read regarding thje 'only' 300ped tt of weapons in 10k ped cycled.


    To let you know I have currently cycled 40,000ped on Ark (I am sure others have cycled much much more) and have yet to loot a single weapon or armour piece.

    Hm. Cycled 12k PEDs+, looted only one pistol 150 PEDs... yes, I think that's "only" :D.
    Funny thing: I am still on profit side, so I think, my decission for Arkadia was right :D.

    Actually I was trying to explain why you wouldn't get as many no looters. On Calypso, most mobs are WAY below 1000HP, giving more no loot message. On Arkadia, a LOT of mobs are 2k HP and higher, rendering a much smaller chance spew "No loot" at you.

    Nice to hear that you looted Armor pieces in such a short run!

    I'm not sure how the item distribution is at the moment, those 300PED of weapons were looted in my first 2 runs at Arkadia, after that it's been 0 for me. I hope you get some nice items pop up in your loot soon!
