These override box drop rates are MISERABLE.

    ...Are you kidding me? With just a spider...I can get 60 boxes in one DI run...multiply that by five...You get PLENTY. =3=

    The guy wants to do it on 40 characters, hes delusional.

    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.

    Honestly though, expecting them to change the drop rates so that they can farm 60 boxes on 40 characters before each reset w/o any funding of any kind is unreasonable. Not to mention the big items in the coin shop like the ring aren't all that expensive this time around. Heck on july 22nd all items will be 30% off in coinshop.

    Yep the real issue is the channels staying up long enough to do ANYTHING.

    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.

    Ahh I see, there's no winning against your stubborn delusional self... got it

    I got at least 300 boxes just leveling up my character from 10 to 95, which took about 6 hours maybe? I dunno I took a few breaks in that time frame. I wasn't even trying to, my pets just did their own thing most of the time. Keep in mind, for almost all of that time I didn't have any drop rate modifiers.
    Besides, there isn't really a reason to do it on more than 5 characters you actually like using. The most expensive item, the Synergy Ring, can only be bought 5 times on your entire world, the rest of the items there isn't a good reason to worry about unless you are trying to gather supplies for one character. I'd understand it in any other world, but I'm a Reboot player so I don't give a crap. I don't even know if the ring is worth it, it's stats are locked behind buying it 5 times on separate characters when past rings cost like 300 coins more but gave you all the stats at once with no gimmick. Can it even be potted?

    Hm, that's a bit better than I was expecting, but still you are doing 5x the work that most people would do for only one of these rings.

    Think of it this way, you're making more than your main stronger.

    ....yeah it's true.

    By the way, I'd like to quickly ask, is the Override Armor/weapon worth it? It just looks like the typical useful in the moment event armor that doesn't even use a unique look, since it rips off the White anniversary armor.

    So I know that the ring improves when you have 5 characters total equipping it, but what are said bonuses? And are they better than gollux gear?

    For each character that equips the ring, they gain +5 all stats, +500 max hp/mp, and +2 w/matt so at most, you'd get +25 all stats, +2500 max hp/mp, and +10 w/matt. Altogether, including the ring's original base stats, you get +30 all stats, +3000 max hp/mp, and +12 w/matt.

    I'm not sure about Gollux gear, though. I think even the Cracked set is better than this single ring.

    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

    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

    Where players seem to have multiple characters on 1 account I did the opposite thanks to the burning event. At least they are all effortlessly geared well. Hehe.

    Uhh yeh I'm getting about 300 boxes in 30 minutes, but I have 200% drop from gear + spider and the new decent holy symbol, not sure if spider and holy symbol even stack or if holy symbol stacks multiplicatively or additively. I don't have kishin though.

    I just like how i'm the dreaming idiot fool for wanting the event to be brought up to consistency with all the other exactly interchangeable events before it.

    I'm getting a ton of these boxes, to be honest too many.

    Now that's just an outright lie.

    How so? I stream a lot when I play and it's all recorded. The faster you kill mobs the more drops you're going to accumulate. I'm still enjoying my high drop rate! :)

    Also, insulting everyone in your thread isn't a good way to gain a positive following. When people disagree with you, or they're not experiencing your issue, it should never become personal.

    Where in the world have you been the past year or two. Box drop rates haven't been generous without drop modifiers for a good few events.
    Speaking of which, not once have you mentioned your own drop rate modifiers. Something tells me you don't even have any mods...

    holy symbol is additive and it does stack with spider.

    Hi, I'm Xenomata, I can pull **** out of my ass because i'm not observant enough to notice the huge difference between every other 60 coin limit box we've had!

    And you think you know any better, if far less? Because you show that you don't, among other things.
