Mark of Bloodshed drop rate from zenith/prince treasure box

Time to talk about the elephant in the room.

As of patch notes 24.05.00 , mark of bloodshed should have increased drop rate from Bandersnatch in wonderholme normal and from zenith/prince treasure boxes.

Based on this :Patch Notes 24.05.00 – Onward to the Wintera Snowfield!

It's true that on patch notes it says for increased drop rate from Bandersnatch in wonderholme normal and I can confirm it ( many others also I bet ) by playing on Killian and running wonderholme normal, mark drops quite often.

BUT, the drop rate for mark from zenith/prince treasure boxes has NOT been increased. You can argue that it's not on patch notes so it shouldn't be increased but he said that:


Nisua, I have already answered on this. It is supposed to be increased and if anyone thinks it's not, please report it to the Support so that we can investigate.
So it means that drop rate of mark from zenith/prince treasure boxes should have been increased.

How do I know it's not increased? I had 250 boxes stacked, waiting for this patch..and nothing. I have many friends that had ~100 boxes also and got nothing also. Yes you can argue all you want "rng is rng" but the truth is, the drop rate from zenith/prince treasure boxes has NOT been increased.

I hope to hear from someone from the staff and that it will be forwarded to the developers or something, shouldn't be too hard to tweak. I'd like to note it has been 15 days since the patch came live on the servers.

You can see it at broker too. Same price as before the patch, with the same amount in it. It didnt get more. In fact, i would even say the droprate from zenith boxes decreased to match the increased droprate in whnm....

Now if they guys were sneaky, the Boxes themselves could hold the probabilities for the items to drop out of them. In that case only boxes given out fresh from the system would have the increased droprate.

But i agree, it doesn't feel like an increase at all. Whether its because its just not there or to low is another story, but you guys should look into that since it's besides getting cubes and quills is the main endgame driver. I assume people put up with it for the weapon, but then they rather quit or have an extended break from the game then going for VM2 for armor.

As much people complain about the enchanting rate and the MW rate, i think its a good enough balance for people to invest time and get a reward in a reasonable amount of time. Ofc there is frustration, but that is part of it. But with the marks people have the distinct feeling of not seeing any progress at all.

Well lets just say you can still se the msg "XXX obtained Mark of Bloodshed from zenith treasure chest" in some areas. Few days ago I saw it in CW and couldnt help it but stop doing dungeons and just count that messages. After 4 hours I go 3 messages meaning drop is the very same as before patch. Furthermore last 25 WHNM runs I saw 0 Marks of Bloodshed drop. So am I unlucky? Most people would say so and keep on beliveng fairytales told us by Gameforge. But I decided to go check things on the other side of coin. Logged onto my free lvlup-event priest in NA server and did the very same thing I did in EU. Again Gameforge claimed we got the very same unmodified patch as NA. In 4 hours I got 70 messages of MoB drop, moving next a single run of WHNM alloved me to get near 2 Marks of Bloodshed - apparently chance is bigger than 50% now (in NA) so with full raid you can get even 2 of them if you are lucky. You can sit in WHNM whole day long and droll on that ugly worm hoping to get MoB but the fact is we did NOT get ANY increase in drop of Marks of Bloodsheed.
MoB price is 90k now in Tera-EU, 5-20k in K-Tera and 7-25k in Tera-NA. That says it all.

Announcement still on, heard of only 2 people getting since the patch. It's either bugged, or increased by 0.00000000000001%

It can't be increased, know too many people that opened 120+ boxes and got 0 MoBs. Wrote to support, seems that they don't care because there already have been 2 maintenances without any new info about the problem.

Shop updating is easy for you, but fixing mark drop rate seems so hard, fuking joke.

I've spent over 150k back then when the boxes were 700g but opening a support-ticket because the RNG just didn't work out hasn't crossed my mind.

past couple months been doing just about all dungeons opening/buying zenith prince boxes
i have not seen 1 MOB last night was thinking about makinga NF pve sword but then it struck me need 5MOB for that sword and 2 months grinding i havent seen 1 yet so i abandoned the plan stick with +12wh.
buying 5*MOB of the broker is not something i want to farm lot/sell mwa mes save up to get
+200 att modifier is not worth that much time for a mainly pve player, its just silly this has to be so hard to obtain.
thank you all alot of up's and down's over the years :)
i probably said alot of bad things as well and im truly sorry for those that felt offended,
but in the end there have been alot of good times in here as well.
take care all

Drop rate? What drop rate? I opened roughly 200 boxes and still nothing of true value. Also haven't seen people getting marks from zenith boxes in weeks now...

As for the drop chance in whhm/nm - 1% maybe? It's only second to the chance of making something +12 from the first try.
Don't argue with the walls...

This is just my experience.
About 30-50 boxes before I got my MoB. Got it from Zenith Box which dropped in SF.

Haven't had many WHNM runs, haven't seen MoB drop.

On a side note, WHHM bonus boss spawn rate? - (About 2-3weeks ago) I saw one the first time I went into that dungeon, we dropped 3-4 Cubes in that run. Since then I've not seen bonus boss and rarely 1-2 Cubes.
