I tried it on my free account and only got one gravel each time just the way its supposed to be
What I am wondering is how many gravel I need to stockpile...
Time: 9pm EST
Location: South Dishinn
Issue: Inconsistency in drops of umber gravel. Not all are dropping 2 of the umber gravel which I understand is the norm for members. Several times only one would drop. No merc or pet being used.
I was just testing this tonight on Everfrost server.
I had two accounts up, both all access. One account I had a merc up, the other I did not. The one without the merc always got double however many gravel that it said it dropped. The one with the merc always got one gravel.
I then grouped them both together (keeping the merc up). Doing that, both characters started getting only one always.
Then I dropped the merc and stayed grouped. Both characters still were only getting one gravel each.
As soon as I ungrouped, with no merc, I was getting double on both characters. So pretty much you have to do this completely solo to get the doubling. =(
Ok with merc at all levels I'm seeing more drops of the umber gravel in quantities of 1 to 3.
Now I'm on my lvl 91 lock in TS and without a merc, I'm lucky to get a drop of 2 umber gravel 1 time out of 5 kills. With merc more often and again with the 1 to 3 umber gravel drops. It actually works out that I get more drops per kill with the merc, but do not get the member bonus on them.
That is different than what I was seeing. I was only getting 1 + all access double. With the merc I always just got singles. I've yet to see more than 1 drop on the live servers, I was seeing 1-3 on test though yesterday, I didn't think to test with and without the merc there.
Okay, I'm confused...granted, it's way too early in the morning in my neck of the woods on a Sunday, when I haven't gotten a lot of sleep, but remind me/tell me I'm imagining things/whatever: didn't I see a list somewhere of the coordinates in the 28 zones where these are attacking, complete with levels for them? I've got a level 46 toon on Test in The Enchanted Lands, who made it to the eruption there (Goblin Pass...tell your friends! ), only to be surrounded by...level 33-35? I guess that's the minimum->mid-range level for the zone?
When we lose the merchant, as we apparently inevitably will, where will we be able to buy the recipe book(s)? And don't say, "nowhere," because I know for a fact there will be a revolution in Homeshow...a deep and bloody one. ;->
Greedy mercs! No wonder I don't use 'em. ;->
Seriously though, this shouldn't be happening. :-/
who actually is thinking about unlocking the feature, just to get Qho into life-threatening situations
Hmm, very odd. Took my level 46 over to Lavastorm ('cause I couldn't find the location for it in The Feerrott, but in the midst of an active volcanic area, was easy-peasy ;->) and started wailing on blue and white conned golems. Odd because the rate of return on anything, even impure stone, was pretty abysmal compared to what I'd been getting from grey-cons, even in Antonica after the Ghost Catching Race (dozens of Gravels! Lots of nutty chocolate bars! Impure stone enough to make a guild hall from! even some low-level status items! etc.!). Shouldn't it be the other way around? :-/
going back to hunt in Antonica...maybe The Commonlands ;->
I see there are recipes for Dhalgar blocks in the CE and Prem editions of ToT. Is the gravel used in these recipes? And will there definitely be a way, preferably for not just adventure-maxed characters, to get gravel later?
Yes, how will we get gravel after the live event ends?
Also, on the live servers, whenever gravel does drop, I get two. Not one, not three. Two. Color of the mob does not matter. Yes, I am all access. No, I am not using my merc.
they have a list of the zones/coordinates and hmm level range (iirc lol).
I didn't get the single gravel return until I actually used a merc with an alt and that didn't happen until yesterday. Always, up to that point, had been 2 without fail but I'd never use a merc until yesterday to kill the undergolems. Grouping with merc may be the trigger for the 1 gravel?
I've yet to get 3.
That's the one! Thanks much!
Singles happened when I was twoboxing without mercs as well (had to check if it was just mercs that caused it).
I finally did see a couple of 3's on test server with my mercenary but never on any of the live servers I have characters on /shrug
At this point I'm not even sure what is supposed to be happening with drops lol, so I'll just kill and collect as I can.
On Crushbone, I get 1 with merc, 2 without merc, and never have seen a 3 drop.
