    Is there any plans to increase the drop rate of Crowns in game with launch coming?

    I know that following persistance, drop rates were incredibly rare..

    Like.. 1 per 15h of grinding on tier 7 mobs was my averaging.. and about 1 per 12h tier 5 mining i was getting ( but 0 on silver )

    I know when i was last on, guildies had hundreds of hours clocked in without one actually dropping.

    With more and more assets becoming availible on crown vendors , are drop rates going to increase?


    Also, i know chris stated he adjusts with how many are in circulation at the time. Does that mean if someone purchases hundreds or thousands ( exaggeration ) in store, the drop rates decrease? And is it accounted for how many are in circulation or how many are for sale?

    For example.. could a guild or 2 of high spending whales, purchase cotos, any and all and hoard them to a point of actually decreasing their drop rate, effectivly making them worth more to the non- RMT players?

    ( this is also ignoring that only the golds are worth anything )

    Maybe i missed the plans for this going forward, but im curious the long term plan with CoTos.
    ( also does MMo drop rate effect the SP drop rate ? )

    I thought he was adjusting the rate based on what price players were buying cotos from each other. I remember that 2000 was supposed to be the number he was waiting for. Well, we've hit 3500, and I don't know about you, but I'm not going to get myself all worked up waiting for it to happen.

    Also, the drop cotos are not all gold, so that makes gold ones even rarer as a drop.

    I've never actually gotten a gold COTO as a drop.

    Rare enough people ss each drop.. and others have never gotten.

    They can drop anywhere t3 or higher.. with a slightly more chancr on higher mobs.
    Same with mining.. ezcept not from silver or gold nodes.

    Thats where its been since persistance. No chsnges in notes unless i missed something

    Yah they drop off high level mobs all the time. Their drop rate does seem to fluctuate based on the amount of cotos in the economy.

    Which high level mobs give out COTOs all the time?
    Is it only in a certain zone, or is there something about having to flag for PVP? I am very curious why you see a good drop rate off high level mobs, I never have. Maybe 6 gold COTOs in a years worth of playing.

    I may be mistaken, but I don't believe Gold Crowns of the Obsidians drop in-game... Only the other metals.

    Nah golds drop.
    Just seem rare er.
    What kindw drop rate u figure? 1 per x amount of hours?

    And ya he said he adjusts them.. so technically RMT heavy guilds could directly effect the drop rate.

    Probably. Also, for those who didn't already know, it takes two non-gold COTOs to convert into a gold COTO.

    Yeah I think I got 2 or 3 gold COTOs and maybe 5-6 of the others from drops in the 850 or so hours I played after persistence hit. The rate did seem low since I was mainly just grinding too.

    I did not know you could convert 2 none gold into Gold COTO. Do you do this by speaking with any of the COTO merchants?

    I've got 2 COTO on drops in the past 2 days which exceeded the total amount I have got in the past 6 months. So either my luck just skyrocketed or they bumped up COTO drops.

    At the Obsidian Potion merchants for sure. Maybe other obsidian merchants too.

    I found this to strike home as I've basically kept that one gold COTO I found even if it takes up more space in my bank (worth 250g vs 0g) just to prove "I FOUND ONE!" lololol.

    I've gotten a ton of crowns during R51, but most of that time I was killing the boss troll to try to get a mossy handle. Seems like their drop distribution currently works somewhat similarly to how artifacts work. I used to get them once in a while from mining nodes also.

    I keep a box of the dropped ones in my basement that my wife and I use for potions and repairs and I think it has about 60 assorted crowns in it right now.
