    I had a blast killing Reapers for weeks until I found a bell, and then mushrooms for the chairs, and now I'm going crazy for a dolly. It would be awesome if the next rare loot could only be obtained by fishing or something other than killing mobs :)

    Have to disagree. Spending time exploring, finding, solving, conversing, building up power to win a penultimate battle, etc. are fun ways to get rares. Mindlessly killing the same mobs over and over again without challenge to get rares is among the worst content in the game.

    Look, it's an MMO, we have to have loot be rare, there has to be some repetition.

    Honestly, even after grinding for months - I found a real power progression and now I cut through most things with ease.

    The rare stuff when we get it - it's awesome - like Elaina's missing bow, we can create player quests and know they'll work.

    If they continue to add a few new items each month, it will be great. There's so many things to collect already !

    I'd like to see : Obsidian Crystals, Anti-virtue Banners, the Banner of Chaos, Obsidian statues, Relics from Ultima 3 (sssshhh......!), rare sea-life, runes, the bell, the book, and the candle, glass swords, and other glass things, ophidian (serpent ??) items and much much more !!

    The first two messages in this post are what make Shroud so amazing. One person loves the hunt of that rare item. The other person doesn't and guess what: they don't have to go do that! Something for all types of people.

    Sometimes I feel like having a mindless morning of fungal flagellation. At least those usually tend to drop a toadstool every 3-4 hours or so. I've got a nice collection now.

    As long as you flagellate in private mode, I don't have a problem with it.

    I don't mind the rare drops like the ones youve mentioned that are focused -ie, killing specific mobs until you get an item that is definitely in their loot table and perseverance will eventually win out.
    The 'it can drop from anything in the game' nonsense, like trying to get a particular recipe or artifact subject to a massive RNG both in drop chance and what yo'll actually get, I find annoying and rage-inducing.
