Just when you think they can't screw players any more, they always surprise you with double whammy fist up your rear. 20% drop rate reduction for nodestones in VJ to "prevent high level players from farming nodestones." Do these people actually have brains between their ears??? First off, drop rate already drops when the level difference increases. Second of all, WHY IS IT BAD FOR PLAYERS WITHIN LVL RANGE TO FARM NODESTONES IN VJ?????? If they're not out of the level range, there's nothing wrong with them grinding in the lower level map, especially in arcane river regions where gear requirement to 1 shot kill mobs increases a lot as you move up the map.
Oh and you really should've bought people between 200-210 some dinner first before you decided to penetrate their back rear. I mean why stop at 20%? Just go straight to 100%. That will definitely prevent high level players from farming, and since you most clearly give zero crap about others getting hurt by patch like this, just go for it. Typical stupid illogical nonsense patch that punishes innocent players to prevent absolutely nothing. There's still gonna be hackers farming nodestones in VJ like crazy and sell them on AH, so I guess it really doesn't matter :p

    Yeah, I found this to be quite disheartening. I think there's quite a few better options to go for instead of punishing not-so-high level characters doing the VJ dailies, just because higher levels are farming nodestones at VJ. That really does seem like a really crappy thing to do.

    It's for the better. Pretty sure this isn't about hindering hackers. I'm certain it's more about map hogging. If you're way overleveled for VJ, go farm the higher level areas instead. Even Slurpy Depths doesn't take much more range to farm there instead of VJ. All it did was let high level people hog up maps like BTC especially during 2x because it's so easy to farm on those maps.

    Besides, you want to farm where is more appropriate for your level anyway. If you're 220+ you want to farm where you would also find droplets.

    These kind of stupid measures are what drives people to get hacks instead. Honestly. Every stupid stuff they do to try to prevent hackers or in this case just "high level players" who are not even outside the level range are probably making more hackers than stopping them. If devs are doing this much to make it harder for players to play legitimately, why on earth would you not get hacks?? You're not even gonna get banned anyway cause they're too stupid to stop it.

    No it's not for the better. If you're level difference is big, the drop rate already goes down. Not to mention that THEY'RE STILL WITHIN THE **** LEVEL RANGE! There's nothing wrong with grinding and farming in one of a few decent layout map like BTC if you're within the damn level range. Not to mention during 2x events, people in 200-209 are also hogging the maps. Everyone hogs good maps during those events. Do you have problem with those too? They were there first, deal with it. Just cc and find a spot. How is nerfing already low nodestone drop rate by 20% for the better? Defend it fanboi

    First of all, many 200-209 players don't even have any drop gear to their name nor likely one-hit anything around that level (In Reboot) anyway. With that alone, farming nodes is difficult around that level. Second of all, VJ is a place where many do VJ dailies even during 2x. Third, on regular servers weaker players buy their nodes. They don't normally farm them by themselves.

    Furthermore, VJ doesn't even have the most optimal farming maps for nodes. There are plenty of better maps outside of VJ. Even KMS nerfed farming VJ for nodes by making Lantern Erda stop dropping them, yet almost nobody complained about that, a nerf to the most optimal map in VJ: BTC. Yet this is what people complain about?

    looooool Nobody complained when they nerfed in lantern erda in kms XD. You're actually dumb. So many people were outraged in kms community over that patch.
    And you're actually complaining that you can't do dailies during 2x event cause people are hogging BTC?? There are several other crap maps that spawn tranquil/lantern erda. Not to mention people don't really care if you're just trying to do dailies and not trying to ks the map.
    You're constantly just making complete fool out of yourself. "Farming nodes is difficult around that level (200-209)"? Yeah you're right, so how the FK is it for the better to screw over people who are already having hard to with the nodes by nerfing the drop rate by 20%? What? They were already having hard time, so making it harder won't make difference? Is that the backward bs logic you're trying to say? And "VJ doesn't even have the most optimal farming maps for nodes"?? Then WHY ARE THEY NERFING THE DROP RATE THEN?? And why on earth do you think people don't "normally farm nodes themselves?" They buy nodes and they farm as well. Nodes are expensive af, and many unfunded players rely on grinding to get their nodes. Stop spewing out crap kid.

    I don't know what is up with the devs lately, first it was the idr and now this? I guess these guys really hate people playing their game.
