Default Heroic Essence Drop Rate

Ok, lets get this put out there, which is it? Is it based on luck? on how much RRT is burned? or is it based on trophy amount farmed? The reason why im making this is to get people to see what others are doing out there to get them. im also getting confused on this due to my experience, the two times i actually tryed it, i farmed for minutes in heroic mode and got one, while i remember so many people complaining they spent like 20 hours of RRT and got nothing. Now im hearing its all about trophy amount farmed, basicly meaning Boon and PKers will be getting more?

I've been tracking heroic essences.

1,897 heroic mode fights as a level 85 in N. Lake with accel enabled and level 93 plunderfiend = 16 essences, for an average of one essence every 118 fights.

Two of those essences dropped in consecutive fights, so there doesn't appear to be any minimum elapsed time or minimum fights between essence drops.

Based on what I've observed so far, there appears to be a slightly less than 1% per fight chance for an essence drop.

Tamari, you have enlightened us to an undesirable consequence of scaling Heroic Essence drops by trophy amounts. We will have an announcement shortly.

And here I assumed it was based on stacks of trophies rather than individual trophies o.O

Pk'ers aren't my concern, if they have issues they can go take out their frustration by killing people. Oh wait, most pk'ers don't kill people other than naked ones.

I thank you for this, but we booners/PKers need our Gates/Recalls! PLEASE change that back! we get WAY more trophys to gate with and recall back to! that part there is not fair to us cause we will end up regaurdless of it, having to buy 3 or 9 time MORE then everyone else! THATS not fair!

I've had to say this at least 20 times today, so I'm having a hard time being polite about it. He took away your 3x bonus THAT ONLY BENEFITED YOU, but he increased it for EVERYONE. You're not excluded from the increase. I get TONS more silks and potions so far, so I'm sure you will too.

I've been farming for 2 hours of rrt and have gotten 18 gates and 27 recalls so far...and my normal drops are around 12 per for every 10 hours rrt spent.

PK =/= Farmer.

iirc, Pker means Player Killer. therefore their farming should not matter.

the change to the amount of potions boon toons get sounds retarded, but i havent farmed so i dont know, but in all honesty, it will take alot of cash out of the game, which is a good thing

so far losing the bonus of gates/recalls for a booner is really taking its toll, today i farmed my 4 hours of RRT and didnt get a single stack of gates or recalls! and i made an eay 2.6k trophys today on that and as i get that alt stronger, it just means more trophys, which means more gates/recalls needing to be BOUGHT instead of getting a good amount while farming. >.> the gates/recalls REALLY needs to be put back glitch! ITS NOT FAIR!
