    The repetition may have a large roll to play in this for sure. Seeing the same scenarios time after time can be tedious for sure, unfortunately there is not a quick fix for this.

    It's not an excuse, but our initial idea with DL was to be more bite-sized and casual than our other MMO titles. Choosing that particular path creates some of the problems you guys are hitting on.

    But still, by that logic:
    I understand it is better to add things in rarer than necessary, cause it is easier to increase a droprate than decreease after a flood, but yeah... mobile casual mmo... Dun really think anything should require 100 man hour farm in this game.

    I'd be so down for larger scaled multiplayer-only maps...like a map that warns you beforehand that it's a large map...maybe even something with multiple floors? Like exploring a mansion in entirety. Something for the players who enjoy the longer hauls and the lengths of the PL/SL maps

    Larger maps that promote community among players is why I love SL.

    Here's some bad luck. I have 35k+ kills, and have only gotten 2 pink weapons drops from maps, never a gem or shard or stone or whatever, never a vanity or pet.

    What i have is from packs, bought, allies missions and nightly reward.
    I am at the point of why bother. Think i will just run every map when i want to, and stop grinding, and if i happen to'get something , well good. Aand if not i wont be frustrated or burnt out over it. I've had enough of chasing items that just don't drop for me.

    Everybody has the exact same chance in getting a vanity. You want a better drop rate because you've been playing longer? Ridiculous. In time, more will come and the prices will drop as new vanities arrive in the world. Hold your head up and continue your farming. Good things come to those who wait

    We are farming days and nights without getting even a single vanity and it's really disappointing. Ppl who are only doing missions and they get lucky drops. It's not very fair as we wasted time, gold, and energy for it but getting nothing. There should be something to award the farmers for trying their best on farming. I hope at least we should know the drop rate of undead mask and it'll be more achievable. As it's only droppable during the event, the mask is a little bit too rare and its price will rise rapidly to like 5mil or 10mil something after summer event is over. I think it should be as rare as the pinks and you can get it in 100-150 runs.

    I'm not offending anyone else but ppl like floating should get something as reward.

    These are just my opinions and thx for spending your time to read it

    I used to love big maps in SL but got tired of running those too because its still repeats the same maps to run over and over just to farm.

    Hmm, what if yall take the concept of running multiple floors in the maps? Giving players a feel of running a long map without actually having it? For example, enter Dead End and run the map normally like we have now, then the glyph teleports us to the next floor with another map with a similar size to the original before we head into the next 3D map thats on the campaign. Or even add three floors? However, give us the choice to run just the main map or all floors. Would be nice to have the choice to run just the regular map or run all the floors.

    Im just tired of the same ol'thing we get from PL & SL. Besides, it would be great to get something different! I mean come on, whats the point of having a CASUAL Mobile MMO when its not even casual? Casual does not require farming hours a day to -hopefully- get drops. This is just the same concept as wasting hella money to gamble on chance bundles for items. Smh.

    I agree that the events mask vanitys shouldnt be so rare but all the other vanitys should stay the way they are. Vanitys like the pet, gamers, manic are here to stay forever they should be very rare.
    If all the vanities were easily attainable then people would complain that the games boring nothing to do. It does suck when a new player thats gottan a rare vanity after 5k kills to your 50k but drops randome and thats how it works. We should just congratulate and be happy for them not overly jelouse.
