Why aren't Arcane Droplets dropping?

Spent hours at CLP the other day and did not get a single droplet. Usually I can get about 2-3 an hour, so what happened? Is anyone else noticing this? It's the cubic and dusk thing all over again!!!

    You just got extremely lucky the other times you got 2-3 droplets in an hour. I've trained for 6 hours at Mirror 2 and gotten 0 droplets, other times I've trained there for an hour and received 2. It's all RNG.

    I have drop rate equips on all the time and a spider out. I was consistently gaining droplets. Now I get nothing wth!!! You can't just tell me that it is RNG. The rate changed and I don't like it when the % drop of an item is being messed with!!!

    Sometimes I get ten nodes and two symbols in an hour of grinding. Sometimes I don't get anything for three days. My gear or perceived droprate bonuses never change.

    It's all down to luck at the end of the day.

    You DO know what RNG is, right? There's a reason why it's called RANDOM number generator. If something has like a 1% drop rate it doesn't mean it'll always drop after 100 kills.

    I get the RNG thing but you should still get something eventually. No need to be insulting, I'm just asking if anyone has had any drop recently.

    2x cs + 2x use coupon, 2 hours each session.
    1 day 1 drop
    1 day 2 drop within 30s of each other.
    5 other days nothing.

    Even on my old Evan going from 220-225 I think I had 1 droplet. Like others said, RNG is RNG but if I had to guess on 4x, getting to 18000 combo should net you one.

    From 220-230, I’ve had about 17 droplets dropping (trained last year 213-230 during the summer before school starts). Only had about 40 hours of 2x from the Bebe boxes that stacked up from all the compensations of the years before.

    I don't have any drop gear and i pretty much only use a spider. Still, after grinding many hours on clp, I'd at least expect to see a droplet every now and then. Nodes drop fine. Few hours of grinding gets me about 5-10 nodes. But never a droplet. I found more while grinding in lach.

    They're a low drop rate, and we certainly could discuss if this is too low. Of course we told nexon ages ago not to ruin drop rate and that did absolutely nothing for us.

    Now we have new zones that don't even drop droplets, so what's worse?

    when you want 200 equips but the place you have to hunt for the drops is starting to restrict exp/drops because your level is to high...

    Yes and it's part of a trend of eternally adding reasons to grind but reducing the rewards for doing so. I'm not sure if they think players enjoy doing more for less.

    So either they give us a different way to gain droplets or give us higher level equips to hunt for lol!

    Agreed. Honestly the current way of obtaining arcane gear is jacked up bs. Even if u can beat Will/Lucid, you still have to obtain 240 arcane droplets to get the arcane wep. They really should implement daily quest for arcane river droplets like absolab gears
