3 Hours in Zaiwei for 1 "White Orb" is not worth it :V


Recommended Posts

I imagine that the struggle for orbs is a very real problem, but I used to run Zaiwei a pretty good bit whIle it lasted - that is, as a populated place before and when it was a part of the DCs. From there, I got the scales and the parts to combine to make them, and always had around 300× or so at any given time. In troves, whenever there was nothing else worth buying, I'd buy Fortune Potions or the scales/orbs, as well. Even now, I have a little over 280× orbs, and see that current marketplace rates show th at around 3G each, at their lowest current prices. I'm glad that I kept them, but for people who don't have a lot, I can only suggest loading up on them next time we have a trove, IF they're still in the RNG loot table. Even with Fortune Potions, which were my main during-combat healing item, I now have about 3,000× of them, if not more, because I've been using a better potion that I can craft with the new crafting system. The purple ones are too expensive fory tastes, for now, but the blue ones do just fine. They're better than the "large" Fortune Potions too, so I'm also sitting on around 1,500× of those. I'll just let alts use them, probably. Anyway, I hope the orb problem is alleviated soon because it's a dumb item and only supports the ultra dumber concept of "time-gated" content, where "resets" are just another unfair expense that's passed along to the consumer, when it's not even needed. CS and HM are only done for specific reasons, usually being the FEW things that we need to drop from them, or to do our DCs, or to see a vendor NPC in CS, etc.. Other than that, event vendor NPCs, but yeah - these dungeons aren't even end-game activities or ad hard as the lowest level purple dungeons. Orbs should drop like 5× at a time, if their rates are going to suck so much.

Well technically it does, if yuo just focus on a single boss that takes maybe what...a few min to spawn? It isnt that bad imo.

again...even its only takes a few mins to spawn still doesnt means the chance to get the white orb is higher

Are you trolling us? 15 orbs in 10 runs? if you get 1 per box then you just hacked the game to get the other extra 5 /giggle.

i said rounds means scorpion queen, ogong escort and tarakhan, also remembered visasa spawning 3 times

also landing the last hit on the bosses gives you 2 boxes and I soloed 6 rounds before people showed up and still landed some last hits on some of em
