These override box drop rates are MISERABLE.

    In my opinion, the droprate is fine. You don't get flooded and you can easily get 100+ a day.

    Considering that every box guarantees a coin until you get 60, I'd say it's okay. If you're having trouble getting boxes, you could use the Evolution System or Dimensional Invasion if you're 150+

    This is great if you only plan on getting coins for one character.

    Not an argument. Past events with the same system still gave more boxes. And getting boxes on mules? Good luck even getting 30 per run. It's ridiculous. Are we now expected to spend our entire days on this?

    Not that difficult if you farm in the correct places.
    They drop in...
    • NLC
    • MP3
    • Ghostship 30-45 min for 60 boxes - Spider no kish
    • Fantasy Theme Park- CBD
    • Evolution System 15min = around 55-64 boxes - Spider no kish
    • Invasion Pq
    • Commerci Pq
    • Under the waterfall-Arcane river

    Just make sure you're using a drop familiar like Big Spider, Ice Witch, Mixed Stone Golem, or Castellan Toad.
    Also, make sure you one shot what you're farming.

    I'm having absolutely no trouble getting up to at least 60 boxes. It might takes two runs instead of one in Dimensional Invasion if I don't have a drop rate increase familiar, and even then I only needed 3-5 more boxes to reach 60, but otherwise, it's not hard.

    Besides, why would you need more boxes if each box guarantees a coin? It'd be one thing if the box only has a random chance of giving a coin, but having the drop rate too high is only going to take up inventory space since you'll only ever be using up 60 a day anyway. Past events might have the same system that gives more boxes but it doesn't necessarily mean that's good.

    Absolutely not possible without funding or a high enough level past 150. Not if you want to do these events on many characters.

    I like how we've gotten to the point where we're being begged to create 40 characters but everyone wants to be fine with not having the time for 40 characters

    A good farming spot for your boxes is the 157 "Ghost Ship 6" farming spot. A lot of people use this location for meso farming and box farming. Rates are extremely high, more so I've noticed with a drop familiar active. So food for thought.

    Uh-huh, now it just sounds like you're just making up excuses. You can farm both Evolution system and NLC monsters at level 100 not funded with mixed golem familiar. Albeit you will likely have to do all three runs in evo system to get your boxes w/o spider (45 min per character)-(3 hours and 40 min a day for five charas)
    If you think that is too long to farm 300 boxes I don't know what to tell you.

    If you're honestly expecting to farm on 40 characters and not be on all day, then you're dreaming.

    if this is making excuses, then the only thing the "override" event stands for is how it's overridden people's good sense.

    Gahahaha what are you smoking?? Its never possible to have enough time for 40 characters idiot

    The extra characters are for link skills and whatnot but not taking advantage of an event

    At the most you can use 4 maybe 5 characters to take advantage of events

    It was never possible, except for all the other box events where it was possible. So it was always possible. Moron. Are you sockpuppeting? That's what it looks like.

    Hell...if all 40 of my characters had spiders...I might consider it =3= but what do ya know...I only put spiders on my main/farming characters.
