Cold Storage - Kaari Lord

Recommended Posts

Just wanting to make sure it's just me and my crappy RNG like usual. I usually solo my Kaari Lord after Mane, the past week or two after a certain patch, my drops from Kaari Lord has been limited to 1 stinger or none. Whilst I remember a few weeks back, I used to get between 3 all the way to 20 stingers. Can someone who solo Kaari Lord as well please post their drops?

 

Literally my drops from the past week or two has been:

1x Healing Tonic

2x Naryu Silver

2x Freezing Orb

0-1x Frozen Stinger

My experience with Kaari Lord drops has been the same as this guy's.

he does drop petals as well. My team has gotten a couple before.

We usually do him just because of the achievement, and a chance to crit the stinger drop.

I find it funny people actually spend 2.5g to buy 1 orb. So total cost to summon this piece of crap is 7.5g. What does he drop? 1 stinger, worth 2.5g, shared across 6 people.

The logic behind this astounds me.

There is a chance for stinger to crit :3 Max crit I have seen is 1 and a stack of 9.

And what's the chance of that, the magic number 0.3%?

I have never seen it drop more than 1 stinger, ever, and I run CS everyday.

Anyway simple statistics tells you it's more profitable to just sell the orbs to idiots who actually buy them. 9 stingers = 22.5g. If it doesn't drop more than 33% of the time, then it's more profitable selling orbs. I've seen the stack of 9-10 stingers drop more often in necro and frozen fang than this boss, and that's pathetic.

Kaari is optional. He has never been a requirement for Cold Storage. People do him for 2 reasons:

1. The achievement: 1, 10, and 100 Kaari kills -- I am one of those that like to get achievement in PvE so I will definitely try to get him as much as I could. I could careless for the stingers, but I will bid on clan design.

2. Taking their chances and hoping for more petals, clan design, and crit stingers.

 

If your main objective is getting the stingers then you are correct, the other dungeons have higher chance to give way more than he does.

You can have more drops from Kaari, but i think NC Soft forgot to put them in his drop list. When you look at the items like Dye Polish etc, you can see that it comes from Kaari Lord in the Cold Storage... The thing is..it never drops.

2.5g? Are those NA prices? Last time I looked on EU, the orbs were around 1-1.5g only. And split up between 6 people, 50 silver for near instant 24k exp is worth it alone in itself imo.

And also sometimes radiant energy dropped from the loot.

Such luck... I only saw that item ONCE in a Yeti run. It's way rarer than stacks of Stingers.

The only reason for Kaari Lord is the material needed  to transmute endgame Gems which doesnt drop on NA/EU (very very low chance)
